Endless universe : beyond the Big Bang by Paul J Steinhardt ( Book )
15 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 1,551 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 )
13 editions published between 1991 and 2000 in English and held by 330 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

Endless universe : big bang, big crunch and beyond : rewriting cosmic history by Paul J Steinhardt ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Argues that the so-called Big Bang was part of an infinite cycle of colossal collisions between our known universe and a parallel world, drawing on developments in astronomy, particle physics, and superstring theory to illuminate the Cyclic Universe theory
Beyond the big bang by Paul J Steinhardt ( Book )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in Italian and English and held by 19 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

Effective Medium Theory for the Elastic Properties of Composites and Acoustics Applications ( )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
We derive an effective medium theory that predicts the bulk and shear moduli of composite materials consisting of a matrix material with soft or hard ellipsoidal inclusions. The theory predicts that disk-shaped inclusions are most effective for softening or hardening a composite material. The theory is applied to the design of materials with highly absorptive acoustical properties
QFT & QCD Past, present, and future : March 18-19, 2005 ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A recording of the event which honored Professor Sidney Coleman of Harvard University. Included are the lectures that distinguished scientists gave to commemorate quantum field theory, much of the work of which was accomplished by Professors at Harvard University
Continuum Approaches for Describing Solid-Gas and Solid-Liquid Flow ( )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Two-phase continuum models have been used to describe the multiphase flow properties of solid-gas and solid-liquid mixtures. The approach is limited in that it requires many fitting functions and parameters to be determined empirically, and it does not provide natural explanations for some of the qualitative behavior of solid-fluid flow. In this report, we explore a more recent single-phase continuum model proposed by Jenkins and Savage (1982) to describe granular flow. Jenkins and McTigue (1989) have proposed a modified model to describe the flow of dense suspensions, and, hence, many of our results can be straight-forwardly extended to this flow regime as well. The solid-fluid mixture is treated as a homogeneous, compressible fluid in which the particle fluctuations about the mean flow are described in terms of an effective temperature. The particle collisions are treated as inelastic. After an introduction in which we briefly comment on the present status of the field, we describe the details of the single-phase continuum model and analyze the microscopic and macroscopic flow conditions required for the approach to be valid. We then derive numerous qualitative predictions which can be empirically verified in small-scale experiments: The flow profiles are computed for simple boundary conditions, plane Couette flow and channel flow. Segregation effects when there are two (or more) particle sizes are considered
