We have no idea : a guide to the unknown universe by Jorge Cham( Book )

19 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Chinese and held by 921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humanity's understanding of the physical world is full of gaps. Not tiny little gaps you can safely ignore -- there are huge yawning voids in our basic notions of how the world works. Jorge Cham and Daniel Whiteson team up to explore everything we don't know about the universe, and while introducing the biggest mysteries in physics, they also helpfully demystify many complicated things we do know. And although the universe is full of weird things that don't make any sense, Cham and Whiteson make a case that the questions we can't answer are as interesting as the ones we can, and they invite us to see the universe as a possibly boundless expanse of uncharted territory that's still ours to explore

We have no idea : a guide to the unknown universe by Jorge Cham( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prepare to learn everything we still don't know about our strange, mostly mysterious universe. PHD Comics creator Jorge Cham and particle physicist Daniel Whiteson have teamed up to spelunk through the enormous gaps in our cosmological knowledge, armed with their popular infographics, cartoons, and unusually entertaining and lucid explanations of science. In We Have No Idea, they explore the biggest unknowns in the universe, why these things are still mysteries, and what a lot of smart people are doing to figure out the answers (or at least ask the right questions). While they're at it, they helpfully demystify many complicated things we do know about, from quarks and neutrinos to gravitational waves and exploding black holes. With equal doses of humor and delight, they invite us to see the universe as a vast expanse of mostly uncharted territory that's still ours to explore. This entertaining illustrated science primer is the perfect book for anyone who's curious about all the big questions physicists are still trying to answer. From the Hardcover edition

Tout ce que nous ne savons pas encore : le guide de l'univers inconnu by Jorge Cham( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pas une année sans que les prédictions des physiciens ne soient vérifiées, de l'existence du boson de Higgs à celle des ondes gravitationnelles. Cette victoire cache pourtant une surprenante vérité: nous ne savons rien (ou presque) ! Des exemples ? La composition de 95 % de l'Univers reste une énigme, tout comme ce qu'il s'est vraiment passé durant le Big Bang. Et pourquoi est-il impossible d'aller plus vite que la lumière ? Pourquoi la gravitation est-elle 10^36 fois moins intense que les autres interactions ? Quelle est l'origine des rayons cosmiques qui bombardent la Terre en permanence ? Mystère ! Non content d'exposer avec la plus grande clarté le peu que nous savons déjà sur l'infiniment petit et l'infiniment grand, cet ouvrage fait le point sur les grands défis lancés à la science. Il reste tant à découvrir... et c'est heureux ! -- 4ème de couverture

On performance and stability in open-loop running by Jorge Cham( Book )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legged robots can provide access to hazardous environments such as waste sites, disaster areas and even the surfaces of other planets, where large obstacles and uneven terrain impede mobility with traditional wheeled systems. Looking to nature for design inspiration, a family of hexapedal robots has been developed that rely on passive mechanical properties and a simple open-loop motor control program to achieve fast and robust performance that begins to compare to that seen in nature. These robots are capable of running at over 4 body-lengths/second and can overcome hip-height obstacles without significantly slowing down. Although this approach works well for a range of open-loop parameters, the question of how to "tune" the system to achieve maximum performance while maintaining stability, especially as conditions change, arises. This thesis analyzes the trade-offs in stability and performance for open-loop running systems like the robots starting with simplified one and two degree-of-freedom dynamic models. Analyses of these models are then validated with experimental data of the running hexapods. Results reveal conditions for optimal performance and demonstrate inherent limitations in the use of open-loop control in running. Based on these findings, strategies for adaptation, or self-tuning, of the open-loop motor program are proposed that require only simple, low-bandwidth sensory feedback. One of these strategies is demonstrated experimentally in the adaptation of stride period in a hexapedal running robot
