An introduction to black holes, information and the string theory revolution : the holographic universe by Leonard Susskind( )

39 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last decade the physics of black holes has been revolutionized by developments that grew out of Jacob Bekenstein's realization that black holes have entropy. This revolution has culminated in a remarkable principle called "the holographic principle," which is now a major focus of attention in gravitational research, quantum field theory and elementary particle physics. Leonard Susskind, one of the co-inventors of the holographic principle as well as one of the founders of string theory, develops and explains these concepts."--BOOK JACKET
The black hole war : my battle with Stephen Hawking to make the world safe for quantum mechanics by Leonard Susskind( Book )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and Polish and held by 1,885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bogen handler om en videnskabelig krig om forståelsen og beskrivelsen af de fysiske processer i universets sorte huller. Hvad sker der, når noget suges ind i et sort hul? Forsvinder det så? For tredive år siden hævdede fysikeren Stephen Hawking, at det var tilfældet, og satte hermed spørgsmålstegn ved alt, vi vidste om fysik og universets fundamentale love. Leonard Susskind og Gerard t'Hooft svarede igen med et modangreb, der faktisk førte til at Hawking indrømmede, at han havde taget fejl

Explains the theory and associated mathematics of quantum mechanics, discussing topics ranging from uncertainty and time dependence to particle and wave states
The Cosmic landscape : string theory and the illusion of intelligent design by Leonard Susskind( Book )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and Romanian and held by 1,537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The beginning of the 21st century is a watershed in modern science, a time that will forever change our understanding of the universe, Susskind contends. Several decades ago, he introduced the revolutionary concept of string theory to the world of physical science. In doing so, he inspired a generation of physicists who believed that the theory would uniquely predict the properties of our universe. Now, in his first book, Susskind argues that the very idea of such an "elegant theory" no longer suits our understanding of the universe, and that our narrow 20th-century view of a unique universe will have to give way to the much broader concept of a gigantic cosmic landscape--a megaverse, pregnant with new possibilities.--From publisher description
Special relativity and classical field theory : the theoretical minimum by Leonard Susskind( Book )

11 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Physicist Leonard Susskind and data engineer Art Friedman are back. This time, they introduce readers to Einstein's special relativity and Maxwell's classical field theory. Using their typical brand of real math, enlightening drawings, and humor, Susskind and Friedman walk us through the complexities of waves, forces, and particles by exploring special relativity and electromagnetism. It's a must-read for both devotees of the series and any armchair physicist who wants to improve their knowledge of physics' deepest truths."--Amazon.com
The black hole war : my battle with Stephen Hawking to make the world safe for quantum mechanics by Leonard Susskind( )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The inside account of the battle among Stephen Hawking, Leonard Susskind, and Gerard't Hooft over the true nature of black holes - with nothing less than our understanding of the entire universe at stake
Classical mechanics : the theoretical minimum by Leonard Susskind( Book )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the ultimate master class in modern physics. World-class physicist and father of string theory Leonard Sussking and citizen-scientist George Hrabovsky combine forces in a primer that teachers the skills you need to do physics yourself
Le minimum théorique : tout ce que vous avez besoin de savoir pour commencer à faire de la physique by Leonard Susskind( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in French and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cet ouvrage exceptionnel s'adresse à ceux qui ont toujours regretté de ne pas avoir suivi de cours en physique, ou qui souhaitent apprendre à penser comme un physicien. Dans ce livre, véritable phénomène d'édition aux États-Unis avec plus de 40 000 exemplaires vendus, les physiciens Leonard Susskind et George Hrabowsky prennent le lecteur par la main et l'emmènent progressivement, sans jamais le perdre, à la découverte des bases essentielles de la physique."--Page [4] de la couverture
Mécanique quantique, le minimum théorique : tout ce que vous avez besoin de savoir pour commencer à faire de la physique by Leonard Susskind( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in French and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leonard Susskind nous a enseigné la mécanique classique dans le premier volume de cette série, Le minimum théorique. Avec son co-auteur Art Friedman, il nous expose maintenant les bases théoriques et les concepts mathématiques associés au monde étrange de la physique quantique. Dans ce deuxième ouvrage, Susskind et Friedman proposent une introduction claire et vivante à ce domaine notoirement ardu et déroutant pour le néophyte. Ils nous font comprendre le comportement des objets sub-atomiques au travers d'abstractions mathématiques simples. A la différence de la plupart des ouvrages de vulgarisation, souvent mal à l'aise quant à la façon d'aborder les singularités de la mécanique quantique, le livre embrasse cet univers dans sa totalité, y compris les paradoxes si contraires à notre logique. Susskind et Friedman proposent des explications limpides aux problématiques d'état quantique, d'incertitude, d'intrication quantique ou de représentations de l'état d'une particule. Accessible mais rigoureux, Mécanique quantique s'adresse, comme Le minimum théorique, à tous ceux désireux de s'initier à la physique, à leur propre rythme."--Page 4 de la couverture
Trous noirs la guerre des savants by Leonard Susskind( Book )

L'auteur raconte la lutte intellectuelle qui l'opposait à Stephen Hawking autour du sujet des trous noirs, leurs nombreuses batailles successives, dont celle, décisive, à Santa Barbara en 1993, et comment ils sont restés amis même si Susskind a gagné "la guerre des savants."

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

S'il y a bien une chose dont l'homme peut se réjouir, c'est d'exister, sur cette terre, dans cet univers. Car, au regard des lois de la physique, la probabilité de s'y trouver est quasi nulle, la vie, telle que nous la connaissons, n'aurait pu apparaître. Selon L. Susskind, il existe des millions d'autres environnements dans l'univers, différents du notre, avec leurs propres lois de la physique
