Einstein, 1905-2005 Poincaré Seminar 2005 by Thibault Damour( )
32 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and German and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Poincare Seminar is held twice a year at the Institute Henri Poincare in Paris. The goal of this seminar is to provide information about general topics of great interest in physics. Both the theoretical and experimental results are covered, with some historical background. This volume is devoted to Einstein's 1905 papers and their legacy
Gravitation and experiment Poincaré Seminar 2006 by Thibault Damour( )
14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 413 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 up-to-date 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 J0737-3039 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
Once upon Einstein by Thibault Damour( Book )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It is well known that Einstein founded twentieth-century physics with his work on relativity and quanta, but what do we really know about these ground breaking ideas? 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, the author offers a view into the formation of his theories, as well as reminders of the day-to-day applications of his ideas. Simultaneously the reader is lead through a reflection on their philosophical impact: How should we think of time according to the theory of relativity, which removes any meaningful "now" and shows that twins can have different ages? How should we think of reality when quantum theory predicts that spatially separated objects nevertheless remain connected through Einstein's notion of "entanglement," which has recently been verified through scientific observation? This book puts readers in Einstein's place, allowing them to share some of those particular moments when he succeeded in "lifting a corner of the great veil."--Publisher's website

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 24 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 twentieth-century 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."--BOOK JACKET
Einstein by Françoise Balibar( Recording )
3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in French and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

The Twelfth Marcel Grossmann Meeting on General Relativity Recent Developments in Theoretical and Experimental General Relativity, Astrophysics, and Relativistic Field Theories (In 3 Volumes) - Proceedings of the Mg12 Meeting on General Relativity by Thibault Damour( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 11 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 stru

Einstein, 1905-2005 Poincaré Seminar 2005. Progress in Mathematical Physics, Volume 47 ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Poincare Seminar is held twice a year at the Institute Henri Poincare in Paris. The goal of this seminar is to provide up-to-date information about general topics of great interest in physics. Both the theoretical and experimental results are covered, with some historical background. Particular care is devoted to the pedagogical nature of the presentation. This volume is devoted to Einstein's 1905 papers and their legacy. After a presentation of Einstein's epistemological approach to physics, and the genesis of special relativity, a centenary perspective is offered. The geometry of relativistic spacetime is explained in detail. Single photon experiments are presented, as a spectacular realization of Einstein's light quanta hypothesis. A previously unpublished lecture by Einstein, which presents an illuminating point of view on statistical physics in 1910, at the dawn of quantum mechanics, is reproduced. The volume ends with an essay on the historical, physical and mathematical aspects of Brownian motion
