Thibault Damour(
Book
)
17 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It is well known that Einstein founded twentiethcentury physics with his work on relativity and quanta. But what is really known of the essential ideas contributed by Einstein? How were they discovered? What should we retain today from the conceptual upheavals he initiated? Through a selection of concrete scenes taken from Einstein's life, this book offers a view into the formation of his theories, as well as reminders of the daytoday applications of the ideas."Jacket

Thibault Damour(
Book
)
18 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book starts with a detailed introduction to general relativity by world expert T. Damour. It includes a review of what may lie beyond by string theorist I. Antoniadis, and collects uptodate essays on the experimental tests of this theory. Contrary to some beliefs, general relativity is now a theory extremely well confirmed by detailed experiments, including the precise timing of the double pulsar J07373039 explained by M. Kramer, member of the team which discovered it in 2003, and satellite missions such as Gravity Probe B described by leading team member J. Mester. The search for dete

The Twelfth Marcel Grossmann Meeting on recent developments in theoretical and experimental general relativity, astrophysics
and relativistic field theories : proceedings of the MG12 Meeting on General Relativity, UNESCO headquarters, Paris, France,
1218 July 2009 by Marcel Grossmann Meeting(
Book
)
17 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Marcel Grossmann Meetings are formed to further the development of General Relativity by promoting theoretical understanding in the fields of physics, mathematics, astronomy and astrophysics and to direct future technological, observational, and experimental efforts. In these meetings are discussed recent developments in classical and quantum gravity, general relativity and relativistic astrophysics, with major emphasis on mathematical foundations and physical predictions, with the main objective of gathering scientists from diverse backgrounds for deepening the understanding of spacetime structure and reviewing the status of testexperiments for Einstein's theory of gravitation. The range of topics is broad, going from the more abstract classical theory, quantum gravity and strings, to the more concrete relativistic astrophysics observations and modeling. The three volumes of the proceedings of MG12 give a broad view of all aspects of gravitational physics and astrophysics, from mathematical issues to recent observations and experiments. The scientific program of the meeting includes 29 plenary talks stretched over 6 mornings, and 74 parallel sessions over 5 afternoons. Volume A contains plenary and review talks ranging from the mathematical foundations of classical and quantum gravitational theories including recent developments in string theories, to precision tests of general relativity including progress towards the detection of gravitational waves, to relativistic astrophysics including such topics as gamma ray bursts, black hole physics both in our galaxy, in active galactic nuclei and in other galaxies, neutron stars, pulsar astrophysics, gravitational lensing effects, neutrino physics and ultra high energy cosmic rays. The rest of the volumes include parallel sessions on dark matter, neutrinos, Xray sources, astrophysical black holes, neutron stars, binary systems, radiative transfer, accretion disks, alternative gravitational theories, perturbations of collapsed objects, analog models, black hole thermodynamics, cosmic background radiation and observational cosmology, numerical relativity and algebraic computing, gravitational lensing, variable "constants" of nature, large scale structure, topology of the universe, braneworld cosmology, early universe models and cosmic microwave background anisotropies, inhomogeneous cosmology, inflation, gamma ray burst modeling, supernovas and global structure. It also includes singularities, cosmic censorship, chaos, EinsteinMaxwell systems, inertial forces, gravitomagnetism, wormholes and time machines, exact solutions of Einstein's equations, gravitational waves, gravitational wave detectors and data analysis, precision gravitational measurements, history of relativity, quantum gravity and loop quantum gravity, Casimir effect, quantum cosmology, strings and branes, selfgravitating systems, gamma ray astronomy, cosmic rays, gamma ray bursts and quasars

"Avec Bob et son chien, Rick, embarquez pour une joyeuse épopée dans les mystères du monde quantique ! La physique quantique est partout autour de nous, tant dans l'infiniment grand que dans l'infiniment petit. Mais ce qu'elle dit du monde qui nous entoure diffère de manière vertigineuse de ce qu'on observe et ressent au quotidien. Partez à la rencontre de ceux qui ont théorisé et créé la physique quantique : Planck, Einstein, le prince de Broglie, Heisenberg, Schrödinger, Bohr, Born, Everett..."

Les relativités : espace, temps, gravitation by
Michel Le Bellac(
Book
)
3 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La 4e de couv. indique : "En 1905, la relativité restreinte bouleverse nos conceptions de l'espace et du temps : il n'existe pas de temps universel, et une conséquence spectaculaire est le paradoxe des jumeaux vérifié quotidiennement par le système GPS. Dix années après la relativité restreinte, la relativité générale interprète la gravitation comme une propriété géométrique de l'espacetemps. Il n'existe plus d'espace absolu où l'on pourrait disposer étoiles et galaxies et l'espacetemps est déformé au voisinage d'objets astrophysiques compacts. Dans un environnement de gravité forte, le temps diffère radicalement du temps usuel et la lumière peut faire du surplace ou même se retrouver piégée. Ce livre expose les concepts fondamentaux introduits par Einstein et il les confronte aux expériences les plus récentes en physique des particules élémentaires et en astrophysique. Le lecteur découvrira comment la relativité décrit ces objets étranges et fascinants que sont les étoiles à neutrons, les trous noirs ou les ondes gravitationnelles, et comment elle rend compte de l'histoire de l'Univers."

The curious history of relativity : how Einstein's theory of gravity was lost and found again by
Jean Eisenstaedt(
Book
)
2 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in French and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Almost one hundred years after general relativity replaced Newton's theory of gravitation, The Curious History of Relativity tells the story of the events surrounding general relativity and the techniques employed by Einstein and the relativists to construct, develop, and understand his almost impenetrable theory. Jean Eisenstaedt, one of the world's leading experts on the subject, also discusses the theory's place in the evolution of twentiethcentury physics. He describes the main stages in the development of general relativity: its beginnings, its strange crossing of the desert during Einstein's lifetime while under heated criticism, and its new life from the 1960s on, when it became vital to the understanding of black holes and the observation of exotic objects, and, eventually, to the discovery of the accelerating universe."Jacket

S'il est quelqu'un que l'on peut qualifier de génie, c'est certainement Einstein. Il a façonné la physique du XXème siècle. Non seulement ses découvertes ont permis l'avènement de notre univers technologique (électronique, laser, énergie nucléaire, etc.), mais surtout, il a profondément modifié notre conception du monde. Il y a un avant Einstein et un après Einstein qui se prolonge aujourd'hui puisque ses théories n'ont pas, pour l'essentiel, été démenties. Les auteurs retracent les contributions d'Einstein en les replaçant dans leur contexte historique, en montrant leur caractère novateur, voire révolutionnaire

General Relativity is a beautiful geometric theory, simple in its mathematical formulation but leading to numerous consequences with striking physical interpretations: gravitational waves, black holes, cosmological models, and so on. This introductory textbook is written for mathematics students interested in physics and physics students interested in exact mathematical formulations (or for anyone with a scientific mind who is curious to know more of the world we live in), recent remarkable experimental and observational results which confirm the theory are clearly described and no specialised
