Unified symmetry : in the small and in the large by Behram N Kursunoglu( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twenty-second Coral Gables conference "UNIFIED SYMMETRY: In the Small and In the Large" continued with the efforts to unify the small and the large. The information gathered with the Huble telescope has in part, in the absence of the SCC, provided a basis for the physicists to unify cosmology and elementary particle physics. The congressional cancellation of the biggest experimental project on the frontiers of physics should not be regarded as an insurmountable obstacle to progress in theoretical physics. The physicists' rise to prominence was mostly reached through their creation of the nuclear era. The post cold war era has somewhat reduced the political, military, and, in part, the social role of the physicist. Some in the administration and the Congress would like physicists to focus on the directly utilitarian aspects of science. Thus, some people do not realize that this regimentation of science would inhibit the creativity. The contributions of solid state physics research to the advancement of technology is the result of physics freely pursued independently of its applications. Modern Physics beginning with Newton's theory of gravity has enabled us to create the space age, to contribute to various technologies, and to impact on our technological modus vivendi

Gauge theories, massive neutrinos, and proton decay by Arnold Perlmutter( Book )

7 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The following proceedings contains most of the contributions given at Orbis Scientiae 1981. As has become customary during the past few years, the organizers and moderators have attempted to strike a balance between reviews of the status of experimental and theoretical developments during the preceding year. We are very pleased that experimentalists representing the critical developments in new accelerator plans, neutrino oscillations, proton decay, and decay schemes of the upsilon, have seen fit to enlighten at first hand their theoretical colleagues. We believe that this interaction can be of great benefit to both groups. The reports of theorists on many of the key theoretical advances by the practitioners themselves is a particularly satisfying feature of this series of conferences and is a tribute to the care and wisdom of the session moderators. Although it has not been a customary editorial practice, we feel that it is particularly appropriate to point out that the 1981 recipient of the J. Robert Oppenheimer Memorial Prize was Professor Frederick Reines, of University of California, Irvine, for his pioneering experiments which first experimentally estab lished the existence of the neutrino. The flurry of activit- experimental and theoretical - generated by recent evidence for massive neutrinos is amply reflected in the contents of this volume. The enthusiasm and skill of Mrs. Helga S. Billings and Mrs. Susan L. Maxon in the organization and the running of the con ference, as well as in the preparation of these proceedings, is gratefully acknowledged

19 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Held December 16-19, 1999, these proceedings are derived from the Global Foundation Inc.'s Orbis Scientiae 1999. Topics include: cosmological parameters; unifying elementary particle physics; cosmology; superstrings; and black holes
The challenges to nuclear power in the twenty-first century by Behram N Kursunoglu( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the proceedings of the Global Foundations Inc.'s 22nd International Energy Forum, held November 5-6, 1999, and is highlighted by presentations by nuclear experts from around the world, including several officials of the US Department of Energy and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The papers address the need for nuclear energy in the new century; the issues of competition with other energy sources; the position of nuclear power in the context of critical global and environmental problems; the necessity of commercial nuclear power development to deal with nuclear arms proliferation; and the necessity to counter the prejudices and obstacles to the development of nuclear energy sources
Physics of mass by International Conference on Orbis Scientiae( Book )

22 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sponsored by the Global Foundation, Inc., these papers are derived from the International Conference on Orbis Scientae II. Topics covered include gravitational mass, neutrino mass, particle masses, cosmological masses, susy masses, and big bang creation of mass
The role of neutrinos, strings, gravity, and variable cosmological constant in elementary particle physics by Behram Kurşunoğlu( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, the proceedings of the Coral Gables Conference, contains developments in the theory of gravitation, and discusses, in particular, the fact that gravity, like electrodynamics, is both attractive and repulsive
Confluence of cosmology, massive neutrinos, elementary particles, and gravitation by Behram Kurşunoğlu( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This conference was based on the discovery that neutrinos are massive objects, which gives elementary particle physics a new direction. This is the first in a series of conferences that will discuss the implications of this discovery and related issues, such as the impact on cosmology, proton spin content, strings, fractional spin and statistics, gravitation, and accelerated expansion of the universe
