Most widely held works by Leonard Mlodinow
The grand design by Stephen Hawking ( Book )
31 editions published between 1120 and 2013 in English and held by 3,834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Along with Caltech physicist Mlodinow, University of Cambridge cosmologist Hawking deftly mixes cutting-edge physics to answer three key questions: Why is there something rather than nothing? Why do we exist? Why this particular set of laws and not some other? - and explains that scientists are approaching what is called "M-theory," a collection of overlapping theories (including string theory) that fill in many (but not all) the blank spots in quantum physics. This collection is known as the "Grand Unified Field Theories"
A briefer history of time by Stephen Hawking ( Book )
37 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the years since the publication of Hawking's A Brief History of Time, readers have repeatedly told Hawking of their great difficulty in understanding some of the book's most important concepts. This is the reason for A Briefer History: his wish to make its content more accessible to readers--as well as to bring it up-to-date with the latest scientific observations and findings. Purely technical concepts, such as the mathematics of chaotic boundary conditions, are gone. Conversely, subjects of wide interest that have now been given entire chapters of their own, including relativity, curved space, and quantum theory. This reorganization has allowed the authors to expand areas of recent progress, from string theory to exciting developments in the search for a unified theory of all the forces of physics.--From publisher description
The Drunkard's walk : how randomness rules our lives by Leonard Mlodinow ( Book )
24 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 2,479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An irreverent look at how randomness influences our lives, and how our successes and failures are far more dependent on chance events than we recognize
Euclid's window : the story of geometry from parallel lines to hyperspace by Leonard Mlodinow ( Book )
19 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Korean and held by 1,821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Physicist/writer Mlodinow leads us on a journey through five revolutions in geometry, from the Greek concept of parallel lines to the latest notions of hyperspace. Here is a new alternative history of math revealing how simple questions anyone might ask about space have been the hidden engine of the highest achievements in science and technology. The journey goes from Pythagoras through Gauss and Einstein and into the midst of a new revolution in which scientists are recognizing that all the varied and wondrous forces of nature can be understood through geometry--a weird new geometry of extra, twisted dimensions, in which space and time, matter and energy, are all intertwined and revealed as consequences of a deep, underlying structure of the universe. This book, a blend of rigorous, authoritative investigation and accessible, good-humored storytelling, makes an original argument asserting the primacy of geometry.--From publisher description
Subliminal : how your unconscious mind rules your behavior by Leonard Mlodinow ( Book )
21 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book the author of The Drunkard's Walk and coauthor of The Grand Design (with Stephen Hawking), gives us an examination of how the unconscious mind shapes our experience of the world and how, for instance, we often misperceive our relationships with family, friends, and business associates, misunderstand the reasons for our investment decisions, and misremember important events. Your preference in politicians, the amount you tip your waiter, all judgments and perceptions reflect the workings of our mind on two levels: the conscious, of which we are aware, and the unconscious, which is hidden from us. The latter has long been the subject of speculation, but over the past two decades researchers have developed remarkable new tools for probing the hidden, or subliminal, workings of the mind. The result of this explosion of research is a new science of the unconscious and a sea change in our understanding of how the subliminal mind affects the way we live. Employing accessible explanations of the most obscure scientific subjects, the author takes us on a tour of this research, unraveling the complexities of the subliminal self and increasing our understanding of how the human mind works and how we interact with friends, strangers, spouses, and coworkers. In the process he changes our view of ourselves and the world around us
