Warped passages : unraveling the mysteries of the Universe's hidden dimensions by Lisa Randall( Book )

29 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dark matter and the dinosaurs : the astounding interconnectedness of the universe by Lisa Randall( Book )

40 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 1,892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sixty-six million years ago, an object the size of a city descended from space to crash into Earth, creating a devastating cataclysm that killed off the dinosaurs, along with three-quarters of the other species on the planet. What was its origin? In Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, Lisa Randall proposes it was a comet that was dislodged from its orbit as the Solar System passed through a disk of dark matter embedded in the Milky Way. In a sense, it might have been dark matter that killed the dinosaurs. Working through the background and consequences of this proposal, Randall shares with us the latest findings--established and speculative--regarding the nature and role of dark matter and the origin of the Universe, our galaxy, our Solar System, and life, along with the process by which scientists explore new concepts. In Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, Randall tells a breathtaking story that weaves together the cosmos' history and our own, illuminating the deep relationships that are critical to our world and the astonishing beauty inherent in the most familiar things"--Provided by publisher

Higgs discovery : the power of empty space by Lisa Randall( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On July 4, 2012, physicists at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva made history when they discovered an entirely new type of subatomic particle that many scientists believe is the Higgs boson. For forty years, physicists searched for this capstone to the Standard Model of particle physics--the theory that describes both the most elementary components that are known in matter and the forces through which they interact. This particle points to the Higgs field, which provides the key to understanding why elementary particles have mass."--

Most wanted particle : the inside story of the hunt for the Higgs, the heart of the future of physics by Jon Butterworth( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The discovery of the Higgs boson has brought us a giant step closer to understanding how our universe works. But before the Higgs was found, its existence was hotly debated. Even Peter Higgs, who first pictured it, did not expect to see proof within his lifetime. The quest to find the Higgs would ultimately require perhaps the most ambitious experiment in human history. Jon Butterworth was there--a leading physicist on the ATLAS project at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. In Most Wanted Particle, he gives us the first insider account of the hunt for the Higgs, and of life at the collider itself--the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator, 17 miles long, 20 stories underground, and designed to "replay" the original Big Bang by smashing subatomic particles at nearly the speed of light. Writing with clarity and humor, Butterworth revels as much in the hard science--which he carefully reconstructs for readers of all levels--as in the messiness, uncertainty, and humanness of science--from the media scrutiny and late-night pub debates, to the false starts and intense pressure to generate results. He captures a moment when an entire field hinged on the proof or disproof of a 50-year-old theory--and even science's top minds didn't know what to expect. Finally, he explains why physics will never be the same after our first glimpse of the elusive Higgs--and where it will go from here." --Book jacket
Verborgene Universen : eine Reise in den extradimensionalen Raum by Lisa Randall( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The universe has many secrets. It may hide additional dimensions of space other than the familier three we recognize. There might even be another universe adjacent to ours, invisible and unattainable ... for now. Warped Passages is a brilliantly readable and altogether exhilarating journey that tracks the arc of discovery from early twentieth-century physics to the razor's edge of modern scientific theory. One of the world's leading theoretical physicists, Lisa Randall provides astonishing scientific possibilities that, until recently, were restricted to the realm of science fiction. Unraveling the twisted threads of the most current debates on relativity, quantum mechanics, and gravity, she explores some of the most fundamental questions posed by Nature, taking us into the warped, hidden dimensions underpinning the universe we live in, demystifying the science of the myriad worlds that may exist just beyond our own
Die Vermessung des Universums : wie die Physik von Morgen den letzten Geheimnissen auf der Spur ist by Lisa Randall( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in German and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Welchen Fragen gehen Physiker nach? Welche Rolle spielen so gigantische Apparate wie der Teilchenbeschleuniger im CERN? Was hat es mit der Suche nach dem Higgs-Boson auf sich? Wie hängt angewandte mit theoretischer Physik zusammen? Lisa Randall zeichnet das Bild der gegenwärtigen Physik in all ihren Facetten und lässt ganz konkret werden, wie die moderne Grundlagenforschung funktioniert. Ein unterhaltsamer, lehrreicher Einblick

Universos ocultos : Un viaje a las dimensiones extras del cosmos by Lisa Randall( )

1 edition published in 2012 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El universo tiene sus secretos. Podría incluso ocultar dimensiones extras, diferentes de todo lo imaginado hasta ahora. Conocemos mucho más sobre el mundo que hace unos pocos años, y sin embargo estamos menos seguros que nunca de cuál es la auténtica naturaleza del universo. 'Habremos alcanzado un punto tan avanzado en los descubrimientos científicos que las leyes de la física tal como las conocemos sencillamente no son suficientes? 'Tendremos que aceptar explicaciones que hasta ahora se habían quedado en el reino de la ciencia ficción? Universos ocultos proporciona una estimulante visión de conjunto que sigue la pista a los descubrimientos de la física desde principios del siglo XX hasta el filo de la física de partículas y la teoría de cuerdas de hoy, destejiendo los actuales debates sobre relatividad, mecánica cuántica y gravedad. Lisa Randall ilumina con un estilo diáfano la ciencia y desenreda con seducción los misterios de las miríadas de mundos que pueden existir justo al lado del que solamente ahora estamos empezando a conocer
