Seven brief lessons on physics by Carlo Rovelli( Book )

55 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 2,705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Here, on the edge of what we know, in contact with the ocean of the unknown, shines the mystery and the beauty of the world. And it's breathtaking.' These seven short, simple lessons guide us through the scientific revolution that shook physics in the twentieth century and still continues to shake us today. Theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli, a founder of the loop quantum gravity theory, explains Einstein's theory of general relativity, quantum mechanics, black holes, the complex architecture of the universe, elementary particles, gravity, and the nature of the mind. In under eighty pages, readers will understand the most transformative scientific discoveries of the twentieth century and what they mean for us--Publisher's website
Reality is not what it seems : the journey to quantum gravity by Carlo Rovelli( Book )

21 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 1,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces how the human image of the world has changed throughout history, demonstrating the evolution of the idea of reality while touching on subjects ranging from the Higgs boson to quantum gravity
The order of time by Carlo Rovelli( Book )

21 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why do we remember the past and not the future? What does it mean for time to "flow"? Do we exist in time or does time exist in us? In lyric, accessible prose, Carlo Rovelli invites us to consider questions about the nature of time that continue to puzzle physicists and philosophers alike. He tears down our assumptions about time one by one, revealing a strange universe where at the most fundamental level time disappears. He explains how the theory of quantum gravity attempts to understand and give meaning to the resulting extreme landscape of this timeless world. Weaving together ideas from philosophy, science and literature, he suggests that our perception of the flow of time depends on our perspective, better understood starting from the structure of our brain and emotions than from the physical universe. Already a bestseller in Italy, and written with the poetic vitality that made Seven Brief Lessons on Physics so appealing, The Order of Time offers a profoundly intelligent, culturally rich, novel appreciation of the mysteries of time."--Dust jacket
General relativity, the most beautiful of theories : applications and trends after 100 years( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Generalising Newton's law of gravitation, general relativity is one of the pillars of modern physics. On the occasion of general relativity's centennial, leading scientists in the different branches of gravitational research review the history and recent advances in the main fields of applications of the theory, which was referred to by Lev Landau as "the most beautiful of the existing physical theories"
Quantum gravity by Carlo Rovelli( Book )

34 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To explain quantum gravity requires a merging of quantum mechanics and general relativity. Carlo Rovelli explores a leading theory, the loop and spinfoam approach, beginning with a reformulation of the basis of classical & Hamiltonian physics before covering the basic technical research directions
The first scientist : Anaximander and his legacy by Carlo Rovelli( Book )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rovelli restores Anaximander to his place in the history of science by carefully presenting his theories from what is known to us and examining them in their historical and philosophical contexts."--Page [2] of jacket
Seven brief lessons on physics by Carlo Rovelli( Recording )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carlo Rovelli brings a playful, entertaining, and mind-bending introduction to modern physics, offering surprising--and surprisingly easy to grasp--explanations of Einstein's general relativity, quantum mechanics, elementary particles, gravity, black holes, the complex architecture of the universe, and the role humans play in this weird and wonderful world. He takes us to the frontiers of our knowledge: to the most minute reaches of the fabric of space, back to the origins of the cosmos, and into the workings of our minds
Reality is not what it seems : the journey to quantum gravity by Carlo Rovelli( Recording )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces how the human image of the world has changed throughout history, demonstrating the evolution of the idea of reality while touching on subjects ranging from the Higgs boson to quantum gravity
Covariant loop quantum gravity : an elementary introduction to quantum gravity and spinfoam theory by Carlo Rovelli( Book )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quantum gravity is among the most fascinating problems in physics. It modifies our understanding of time, space and matter. The recent development of the loop approach has allowed us to explore domains ranging from black hole thermodynamics to the early Universe. This book provides readers with a simple introduction to loop quantum gravity, centred on its covariant approach. It focuses on the physical and conceptual aspects of the problem and includes the background material needed to enter this lively domain of research, making it ideal for researchers and graduate students. Topics covered include quanta of space; classical and quantum physics without time; tetrad formalism; Holst action; lattice QCD; Regge calculus; ADM and Ashtekar variables; Ponzano-Regge and Turaev-Viro amplitudes; kinematics and dynamics of 4D Lorentzian quantum gravity; spectrum of area and volume; coherent states; classical limit; matter couplings; graviton propagator; spinfoam cosmology and black hole thermodynamics
The order of time by Carlo Rovelli( Recording )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time tends to be considered uniform and universal, but it may be much more complicated than that. In fact, the more scientists learn about it, the more mysterious it becomes. In lyric, accessible prose, Rovelli invites us to consider questions about the nature of time that continue to puzzle the best minds

2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the bestselling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics comes a new book about the mind-bending nature of the universe.Do space and time truly exist? What is reality made of? Can we understand its deep texture?Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his whole life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. In this mind-expanding book, he shows how our understanding of reality has changed throughout centuries, from Democritus to loop quantum gravity. Taking us on a wondrous journey, he invites us to imagine a whole new world where black holes are waiting to explode, spacetime is made up of grains, and infinity does not exist--a vast universe still largely undiscovered
