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 2,405 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 )

36 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A mind-bending book about modern physics, quantum mechanics, the fate of stars and the deep mysteries of black holes. What happens when something is sucked into a black hole? Does it disappear? Three decades ago, a young physicist named Stephen Hawking claimed it did--and in doing so put at risk everything we know about physics and the fundamental laws of the universe. Most scientists didn't recognize the import of Hawking's claims, but Leonard Susskind and Gerard t'Hooft realized the threat, and responded with a counterattack that changed the course of physics. This is the story of their united effort to reconcile Hawking's revolutionary theories with their own sense of reality--effort that would eventually result in Hawking admitting he was wrong, paying up, and Susskind and t'Hooft realizing that our world is a hologram projected from the outer boundaries of space.--[Source inconnue]
The Cosmic landscape : string theory and the illusion of intelligent design by Leonard Susskind( Book )

31 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,615 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

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 82 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
Simple Nature( Visual )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Simple Nature, world famous physicist Dr. Leonard Susskind introduces The Anthropic Principle in an entertaining, accessible and informative way. Proposed in the 1970's, The Anthropic Principle attempts to explain how the physics of the universe may be perfectly tuned for life to evolve. Any small tweak in gravity or quantum mechanics would make all matter, planets, stars and life-forms impossible, yet it all is in perfect working order. Why? The Anthropic Principle poses a simple yet plausible explanation, and is at the heart of a growing debate in the world of physics, philosophy and religion. Is it the answer to the 'why'#x9D; of the universe, or does it ignore the traditional methodology of physics and science? In the age of the Large Hadron Collider and breathtaking scientific exploration of atomic particles, physics may be about to revolutionize our view of humankind's place in the universe. Shot on 16 MM film, Simple Nature is illustrated with animated graphics, visuals and music. A good discussion starter to explore the Anthropic Principle in physics, philosophy, religious studies, cosmology and astronomy classes
Relativité restreinte et théorie classique des champs, le minimum théorique : tout ce que vous avez besoin de savoir pour commencer à faire de la physique by Leonard Susskind( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le physicien Leonard Susskind et l'ingénieur en informatique Art Friedman sont de retour. Après nous avoir fait découvrir la mécanique classique et la mécanique quantique dans les deux premiers volumes de cette série mondialement acclamée (Le Minimum Théorique), Leonard Susskind et Art Friedman s'attachent ici à la théorie des champs, qui sous-tend la gravitation de Newton, l'électromagnétisme de Maxwell et la relativité restreinte d'Einstein. Sur la base d'équations mathématiques aussi simples que possibles (mais pas plus) et de leurs sympathiques alter egos Art et Lenny qui introduisent chaque leçon par un petit dialogue humoristique, Susskind et Friedman nous emmènent à la découverte des ondes, des forces et des particules, au travers d'un monde gouverné par les lois de la relativité restreinte. Ce troisième volume ne se départit pas de la marque qui a fait le succès des deux précédents : un contenu à la fois accessible et rigoureux, et indispensable à quiconque désireux d'aller au-delà de la simple vulgarisation sans savoir par où commencer."

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

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 5 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. Stephen Hawking raised profound issues concerning the loss of information in black hole evaporation and the consistency of quantum mechanics in a world with gravity. For two decades these questions puzzled theoretical physicists and eventually led to a revolution in the way we think about space, time, matter and information. 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
