Por amor a la física : del final del arco iris a la frontera del tiempo. Un viaje a través de las maravillas de la física by Walter H. G Lewin( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in Spanish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Durante más de treinta años como profesor en el Instituto Tecnológico de Massachusetts (MIT), Lewin perfeccionó su peculiar arte de enseñar y de hacer de la física algo accesible y divertido. En sus cursos, siempre prácticos, ha llegado a colocar su cabeza delante de un martillo demoledor o a aplicarse una sobrecarga de trescientos mil voltios para explicar conceptos básicos a sus estudiantes. En Por amor a la física, Lewin responde a preguntas curiosas: ¿Es posible que seamos más bajos estando de pie que estando tumbados? ¿Por qué los colores del arcoíris siempre están ordenados del mismo modo? ¿Sería posible tocar alguno con la mano? Lewin acompaña a los lectores en un viaje maravilloso abriendo nuestros ojos ante la increíble belleza y el poder con el que la física puede revelarnos los mecanismos ocultos del mundo que nos rodea
Compact Stellar X-ray Sources: Cambridge Astrophysics Series ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
X-ray astronomy is the prime available window on astrophysical compact objects: black holes, neutron stars and white dwarfs. In the last ten years new observational opportunities have led to an explosion of knowledge in this field. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the astrophysics of compact objects that emit X-rays. Sixteen chapters written by the foremost experts in the field cover the observations and the astrophysical interpretation of these objects. Topics covered include binary systems, gamma ray burst sources, soft gamma ray repeaters, anomalous X-ray pulsars, super-soft sources, and enigmatic fast X-ray transients. Further chapters are dedicated to isolated neutron stars and the X-ray source populations of globular clusters. The properties of X-ray binaries are discussed in depth in chapters on quasi-periodic oscillations and related aperiodic X-ray variability, X-ray bursts, black holes, and relativistic jets. This is a valuable reference for both graduate students and active researchers
