Endless universe : beyond the Big Bang by Paul J Steinhardt( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Big Bang theory--the leading explanation for the origin of the universe--posits that space and time sprang into being about 14 billion years ago in a hot, expanding fireball of nearly infinite density. Over the last three decades, the theory has repeatedly had to be revised to address such issues as how galaxies and stars first formed and why the expansion of the universe is speeding up--let alone what caused the Big Bang in the first place. This book presents a bold new cosmology: Steinhardt and Turok recount remarkable developments in astronomy, particle physics, and superstring theory that together form the basis of their groundbreaking "Cyclic Universe" theory. According to this picture, the Big Bang was not the beginning of time, but the bridge to a past filled with endlessly repeating cycles, each accompanied by the creation of new matter and the formation of new galaxies, stars, and planets.--From publisher description
Quasicrystals : the state of the art( Book )

15 editions published between 1991 and 2000 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This review volume provides the most up-to-date and authoritative description of research on icosahedral solids, which has advanced rapidly since the discovery of these unique materials in 1984. The present book, intended as a companion volume to the reprint volume on The Physics of Quasicrystals edited by P Steinhardt and S Ostlund, will be invaluable to graduate students and workers in the field as a comprehensive reference. Scientists in related fields can use it as a readable introduction to the important current problems in quasicrystals. The chapters have been written by many of the most
The Physics of quasicrystals by Paul J Steinhardt( Book )

Fourth Workshop on Grand Unification, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, April 21-23, 1983 by H. A Weldon( Book )

10 editions published in 1983 in English and Italian and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has been sixteen years since the unification of electro Magnetism with the weak interactions was developed by Glashow, Salam, and Weinberg. Well before that proposal was fully confirmed by experiment, work began on unifying strong interactions with the electroweak. Now there is a growing effort to incorporate some theory of quantum gravity into the scheme. This enormous complex of theoreti cal and experimental efforts was the subject of the Fourth Workshop on Grand Unification held in Philadelphia and attended by over two hundred physicists. During the workshop, experimental and theoretical talks alternated as shown by the program summary on page 409. However, to display the logical scope of the workshop the proceedings are organized into five subject areas. Howard Georgi opened the workshop with a keynote address in which he reminds us of some of the simple properties of the particle spectrum that have not yet been understood. The first subject area, and also the largest, is proton decay and underground physics. This is introduced by ~Jill iam r1arciano' s review of the SU(5) predictions with particular attention paid to the theoretical uncertainties. Spokesmen for the major underground experiments present current results on proton decay, nn oscillations, and magnetic monopole flux: B.V. Sreekantan for the Kolar gold field experiment after 1. 9 years of operation, Earl Peterson for the Soudan detector after 0. 55 years, and Bruce Cortez for the rr'lB detector after 0. 22 years

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond the big bang by Paul J Steinhardt( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why is the distribution of matter and radiation in the universe so uniform? Why is space flat rather than curved, as Einstein's theory of general relativity suggests? To resolve these issues, the authors propose a very different model of the universe. They argue that it is without beginning or end, truly an Endless Universe
