Facing up : science and its cultural adversaries by Steven Weinberg( )

30 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 2,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Each of these essays, which span fifteen years, struggles in one way or another with the necessity of facing up to the discovery that the laws of nature are impersonal, with no hint of a special status for human beings. Defending the spirit of science against its cultural adversaries, these essays express a viewpoint that is reductionist, realist, and devoutly secular. Each is preceded by a new introduction that explains its provenance and, if necessary, brings it up to date. Together, they afford the general reader the unique pleasure of experiencing the superb sense, understanding, and knowledge of one of the most interesting and forceful scientific minds of our era."--Jacket
Dark matter in the universe by John N Bahcall( )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in English and held by 1,895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If standard gravitational theory is correct, then most of the matter in the universe is in an unidentified form which does not emit enough light to have been detected by current instrumentation. This book is the second edition of the lectures given at the 4th Jerusalem Winter School for Theoretical Physics, with new material added. The lectures are devoted to the "missing matter" problem in the universe, the search to understand dark matter
Statistical mechanics of membranes and surfaces by David R Nelson( )

18 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 1,819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This invaluable book explores the delicate interplay between geometry and statistical mechanics in materials such as microemulsions, wetting and growth interfaces, bulk lyotropic liquid crystals, chalcogenide glasses and sheet polymers, using tools from the fields of polymer physics, differential geometry, field theory and critical phenomena. Several chapters have been updated relative to the classic 1989 edition. Moreover, there are now three entirely new chapters on effects of anisotropy and heterogeneity, on fixed connectivity membranes and on triangulated surface models of fluctuating me
To explain the world : the discovery of modern science by Steven Weinberg( Book )

38 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Weinberg takes us across centuries from ancient Miletus to medieval Baghdad and Oxford, from Plato's Academy and the Museum of Alexandria to the cathedral school of Chartres and the Royal Society of London. He shows that the scientists of ancient and medieval times not only did not understand what we understand about the world--they did not understand what there is to understand, or how to understand it. Yet over the centuries, through the struggle to solve such mysteries as the curious backward movement of the planets and the rise and fall of the tides, the modern discipline of science eventually emerged"
Cosmology by Steven Weinberg( )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2019 in English and Chinese and held by 1,517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a uniquely comprehensive and detailed treatment of the theoretical and observational foundations of modern cosmology, by a Nobel Laureate in Physics. It gives up-to-date and self contained accounts of the theories and observations that have made the past few decades a golden age of cosmology
Gravitation and cosmology : principles and applications of the general theory of relativity by Steven Weinberg( Book )

40 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Weinberg's 1972 work, in his description, had two purposes. The first was practical to bring together and assess the wealth of data provided over the previous decade while realizing that newer data would come in even as the book was being printed. He hoped the comprehensive picture would prepare the reader and himself to that new data as it emerged. The second was to produce a textbook about general relativity in which geometric ideas were not given a starring role for (in his words) too great an emphasis on geometry can only obscure the deep connections between gravitation and the rest of physics

Lectures on quantum mechanics by Steven Weinberg( Book )

39 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in English and German and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg combines his exceptional physical insight with his gift for clear exposition to provide a concise introduction to modern quantum mechanics. Ideally suited to a one-year graduate course, this textbook is also a useful reference for researchers. Readers are introduced to the subject through a review of the history of quantum mechanics and an account of classic solutions of the Schrödinger equation, before quantum mechanics is developed in a modern Hilbert space approach. The textbook covers many topics not often found in other books on the subject, including alternatives to the Copenhagen interpretation, Bloch waves and band structure, the Wigner-Eckart theorem, magic numbers, isospin symmetry, the Dirac theory of constrained canonical systems, general scattering theory, the optical theorem, the 'in-in' formalism, the Berry phase, Landau levels, entanglement and quantum computing. Problems are included at the ends of chapters, with solutions available for instructors at"--

Third thoughts by Steven Weinberg( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than four decades, one of the most captivating and celebrated science communicators of our time has challenged the public to think carefully about the foundations of nature and the inseparable entanglement of science and society. In Third Thoughts Steven Weinberg casts a wide net: from the cosmological to the personal, from astronomy, quantum mechanics, and the history of science to the limitations of current knowledge, the art of discovery, and the rewards of getting things wrong. Winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics and author of the classic The First Three Minutes, Weinberg shares his views on some of the most fundamental and fascinating aspects of physics and the universe. But he does not seclude science behind disciplinary walls, or shy away from politics, taking on what he sees as the folly of manned spaceflight, the harms of inequality, and the importance of public goods. His point of view is rationalist, realist, reductionist, and devoutly secularist. Weinberg is that great rarity, a prize-winning physicist who is entertaining and accessible. The essays in Third Thoughts, some of which appear here for the first time, will engage, provoke, and inform--and never lose sight of the human dimension of scientific discovery and its consequences for our endless drive to probe the workings of the cosmos."--Dust jacket

Time in powers of ten : natural phenomena and their timescales by G. 't Hooft( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this richly illustrated book, Nobel laureate Gerard 't Hooft and theoretical physicist Stefan Vandoren describe the enormous diversity of natural phenomena that take place at different timescales. In the tradition of the bestseller Powers of Ten, the authors zoom in and out in time, each step with a factor of ten. Starting from one second, timescales are enlarged until processes are reached that take much longer than the age of the universe. After the largest possible eternities, the reader is treated to the shortest and fastest phenomena known. Then the authors increase with powers of ten, until again the second is reached at the end of the book."--Page 4 of cover
Scientific Inquiry and Everyday Life : Steven Weinberg( Visual )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the quark, so small nobody will ever see it, to the 53-mile-long supercollider, so expensive we never built it, the world of physical science gropes with the deepest question of all: "Why is there something instead of nothing?" In this program with Bill Moyers, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg discusses the nature of scientific inquiry and its close relationship to everyday life. Can scientific research into the beginnings of the universe lead us to discover a sense of beauty in the world around us and in our minds?
