Albert Einstein : his influence on physics, philosophy and politics by Peter C Aichelburg( Book )

9 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dart nun, bei den Heiden, bei diesen wirkiich vorbild haften Menschen erscheint uns das Interesse fiir die Person, fiir den Namen, fiir Gesicht und Gebiirde er iaubt und natiiriich. H. Hesse, "Das Giasperienspiel" In 1979 the world celebrates the centenary of Albert Einstein's birth. This offers an occasion to review his life and his scientific work in retrospect, to survey his importance for our time, and to look forward to future years of scientific research. Undoubtedly, Einstein was one of the key-figures in the intellectual history of our century. He influenced physics and philosophy, as well as politics. The creation of general relativity is one of the greatest scientific achievements of our time, as well as the apex of Einsteins's scientific work. Its full implications for the other fields of physics have become clear only in recent years. The technological possibilities offered by space research have enabled mankind to survey the universe for the first time unhindered by the earth's atmosphere. This has led to new discoveries and has shown that even some of the far-reaching conclusions derived from Einstein's theory are borne out by observation. General relativity, which has for a long time been viewed as an outsider among physical theories because of its mathematical difficulty and complexity, is considered now to be the prototype of theories in the fields of elementary particle physics and even solid state physics

Relativity, groups, particles : special relativity and relativistic symmetry in field and particle physics by Roman Ulrich Sexl( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook attempts to bridge the gap that exists between the two levels on which relativistic symmetry is usually presented - the level of introductory courses on mechanics and electrodynamics and the level of application in high-energy physics and quantum field theory: in both cases, too many other topics are more important and hardly leave time for a deepening of the idea of relativistic symmetry. So after explaining the postulates that lead to the Lorentz transformation and after going through the main points special relativity has to make in classical mechanics and electrodynamics, the authors gradually lead the reader up to a more abstract point of view on relativistic symmetry - always illustrating it by physical examples - until finally motivating and developing Wigner's classification of the unitary irreducible representations of the inhomogeneous Lorentz group. Numerous historical and mathematical asides contribute to conceptual clarification
Relativität, Gruppen, Teilchen : spezielle Relativitätstheorie als Grundlage der Feld- und Teilchenphysik by Roman Ulrich Sexl( Book )

23 editions published between 1976 and 1992 in 4 languages and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Thema des Buches ist die spezielle Relativitt̃stheorie und die Beschreibung der relativistischen Symmetrie in der klassischen und Elementarteilchenphysik. Es werden weniger die Experimente zur Relativitt̃stheorie diskutiert, als vielmehr deren formale Struktur durchleuchtet, entwickelt und physikalisch gedeutet. Der besondere Reiz dieses Buches besteht in der Balance zwischen physikalischer Diskussion und formaler Struktur. Die Autoren gehen von einer elementaren Prs̃entation schrittweise zu einer abstrakteren moderneren Darstellung über. Kleinere und auch ausgedehntere historische Noten sowie weiterführende mathematische Bemerkungen sind im Text verstreut. Die vorliegende Neuauflage geht - bei leicht geñderter Stoffanordnung und Einschub zweier Zusatzabschnitte - str̃ker als bisher ein auf die Rolle der Thomas-Rotation in der Struktur der Lorentzgruppe, auf mehrwertige Darstellungen und Spiegelungen

Dialogue on the great world systems : in the Salusbury translation by Galileo Galilei( Book )

14 editions published in 1982 in German and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galileo's 1632 book, Dialogue on the Two Chief World Systems, Ptolemaic and Copernican, comes alive for twentieth-century readers thanks to Maurice Finocchiaro's brilliant new translation and presentation. Condemned by the Inquisition for its heretical proposition that the earth revolves around the sun, Galileo's masterpiece takes the form of a debate, divided into four "days," among three highly articulate gentlemen

Elementary particle physics : concepts and phenomena by Otto Nachtmann( Book )

8 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in German and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book grew-how could it be otherwise?-out of a series oflectures which the author held at the University of Heidelberg. The purpose ofthese lectures was to give an introduction to the phenomenology of elementary particles for students both of theoretical and experimental orientation. With the present book the author has set himself the same aim. The reader is assumed to be familiar with ordinary nonrelativistic quantum mechanics as presented, e.g., in the following books: Quantum Mechanics, by L.1. Schiff (McGraw-Hill, New York, 1955); Quantum Mechanics, Vol. I, by K. Gottfried (W.A. Benjamin, Reading, Ma., 1966). The setup of the present book is as follows. In the first part we present some basic general principles and concepts which are used in elementary particle physics. The reader is supposed to learn here the "language" of particle physics. An introductory chapter deals with special relativity, of such funda mental importance for particle physics, which most ofthe time is high energy, i.e., highly relativistic physics. Further chapters of this first part deal with the Dirac equation, with the theory of quantized fields, and with the general definitions of the scattering and transition matrices and the cross-sections
