Einstein, 1905-2005 Poincaré Seminar 2005 by Thibault Damour ( )
30 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and German and held by 677 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 ( )
16 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 420 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 )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It is well known that Einstein founded twentieth-century 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 day-to-day applications of the ideas."--Jacket
Si Einstein m'était conté by Thibault Damour ( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Présentation de l'intérêt philosophique ou conceptuel des idées d'Einstein pour les sciences et les technologies actuelles. En 7 chapitres, l'ouvrage propose des scènes illustrant différents moments de la recherche menée par le scientifique
Entretiens sur la multitude du monde by Thibault Damour ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in French and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Einstein et la relativité générale : les chemins de l'espace temps by Jean Eisenstaedt ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La relativité générale reste une théorie difficile, mal comprise, hermétique. L'auteur présente de façon accessible à tout un chacun comment, dans quel contexte et au prix de quels efforts elle est née et a évolué depuis le début du XXe siècle. Il rentre dans le détail de l'histoire des techniques mathématiques, physiques et observationnelles, dans le cadre de l'évolution de la physique
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 8 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

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 12-18 July 2009 by The Marcel Grossmann meeting ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 6 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 test-experiments 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, X-ray 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, brane-world 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, Einstein-Maxwell 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, self-gravitating systems, gamma ray astronomy, cosmic rays, gamma ray bursts and quasars
