50 years of Yang-Mills theory by G. 't Hooft ( )
14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On the 50th anniversary of Yang-Mills theory, this invaluable volume looks back at the developments and achievements in elementary particle physics that ensued from that beautiful idea. During the last five decades, Yang-Mills theory, which is undeniably the most important cornerstone of theoretical physics, has expanded widely. It has been investigated from many perspectives, and many new and unexpected features have been uncovered from this theory. In recent decades, apart from high energy physics, the theory has been actively applied in other branches of physics, such as statistical physics, condensed matter physics, nonlinear systems, etc. This makes the theory an indispensable topic for all who are involved in physics. An international team of experts, each of whom has left his mark on the developments of this remarkable theory, contribute essays or more detailed technical accounts to this volume. These articles highlight the new discoveries from the respective authors' perspectives. The distinguished contributors are: S Adler, P van Baal, F A Bais, C Becchi, M Creutz, A DeRujula, B S DeWitt, F Englert, L D Faddeev, P Hasenfratz, R Jackiw, P van Nieuwenhuizen, A Polyakov, R Stora, S Weinberg, F Wilczek, E Witten, C N Yang. Included in each article are introductory and explanatory remarks by the editor, G 't Hooft, who is himself a major player in the development of Yang-Mills theory
Under the spell of the gauge principle by G. 't Hooft ( )
10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few people studying Gauge Field Theory need to be convinced of the importance of the work of 't Hooft. This volume contains a selection of articles and review topics covering his well-known studies on the renormalization of non-Abelian gauge theorems, topological phenomena in gauge field theory and thoughts on the role of black holes in quantum gravity.The chapters are tied together by thoughtful commentaries which provide a background and the illumination of hindsight - together they form a clear and coherent picture of the physical and theoretical importance of gauge theories and the gauge p
Escape from Leipzig by Harald Fritzsch ( )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the 1960s, Leipzig was the center of resistance in East Germany. Harald Fritzsch, then a physics student, contemplated escape. But before he left, he wanted to demonstrate to the government that they had gone too far when they destroyed St. Paul's Church in May 1968. He accomplished that by unrolling a protest transparency in spectacular fashion. Despite the great efforts of the secret police, the STASI, the government was unable to find out who was responsible for this act. Soon after, together with a friend, Fritzsch began his journey to Bulgaria in order to escape into Turkey by traversi
In search of the ultimate building blocks by G. 't Hooft ( Book )
17 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a first-hand account of one of the most creative and exciting periods of discovery in the history of physics. From 1965 until 1990 theoreticians and experimentalists worked together to probe deeper and deeper into the basic structure of reality, moving closer and closer to an understanding of the ultimate building blocks from which everything in the universe is made. Gerard 't Hooft worked in the field throughout this period of almost unprecedented discovery, and was closely involved in many of the advances in the development of the subject. In this book he gives a personal account of the process by which physicists came to understand the structure of matter through the development of what is now known as the Standard Theory. In the latter part of the book, he speculates on structures even smaller than those already known to exist, on black holes, grand unification and on possible directions in which the subject may evolve in the future
Playing with planets by G. 't Hooft ( )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If you think the future is a mystery, think again. With a solid foothold in realism, an extraordinary insight into scientific and technological developments, and a dry sense of humour, Nobel laureate Professor Gerard 't Hooft confidently dissects fact from fiction and shows us what our future might really hold
