Seven brief lessons on physics by Carlo Rovelli( Book )

63 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 13 languages and held by 2,793 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
The order of time by Carlo Rovelli( Book )

33 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in 6 languages and held by 1,419 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
Reality is not what it seems : the journey to quantum gravity by Carlo Rovelli( Book )

20 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 1,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A closer look at the mind-bending nature of the universe. What are the elementary ingredients of the world? Do time and space exist? And what exactly is reality? Theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli has spent his life exploring these questions. He tells us how our understanding of reality has changed over the centuries and how physicists think about the structure of the universe today. In elegant and accessible prose, Rovelli takes us on a wondrous journey from Democritus to Albert Einstein, from Michael Faraday to gravitational waves, and from classical physics to his own work in quantum gravity. As he shows us how the idea of reality has evolved over time, Rovelli offers deeper explanations of the theories he introduced so concisely in Seven Brief Lessons on Physics. This book culminates in a lucid overview of quantum gravity, the field of research that explores the quantum nature of space and time, seeking to unify quantum mechanics and general relativity. Rovelli invites us to imagine a marvelous world where space breaks up into tiny grains, time disappears at the smallest scales, and black holes are waiting to explode--a vast universe still largely undiscovered."--Dust jacket
General relativity, the most beautiful of theories : applications and trends after 100 years( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 820 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 )

35 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 539 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 )

22 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 448 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 in 2016 in English and held by 439 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
The order of time by Carlo Rovelli( Recording )

9 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 284 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

Par-delà le visible : la réalité du monde physique et la gravité quantique by Carlo Rovelli( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hoe moeten geïnteresseerde lezers nog iets begrijpen van alle recente ideeën over de kosmos? In zijn boek legt Rovelli het nu aan een breder publiek uit. Zo laat hij zien hoe vaak oude conceptenen ideeën telkens weer opduiken. En misschien onbedoeld: ook hoezeer de natuurkunde zelf evolueert. Bron: Flaptekst, uitgeversinformatie
