Our mathematical universe : my quest for the ultimate nature of reality by Max Tegmark ( Book )
10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Max Tegmark leads us on an astonishing journey through past, present, and future, and through the physics, astronomy and mathematics that are the foundation of his work, most particularly his hypothesis that our physical reality is a mathematical structure and his theory of the ultimate multiverse. In a dazzling combination of both popular and ground-breaking science, he not only helps us grasp his often mind-boggling theories (his website gives a flavor of how they might boggle the mind), but he also shares with us some of the often surprising triumphs and disappointments that have shaped his life as a scientist. Fascinating from first to last--here is a book for the full science-reading spectrum"--

What time is it? ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Do we really know what time it is? CERN physicist Professor Brian Cox (and author of E=mc2) unlocks the secrets of time in this entertaining and informative program. His journey starts with the Sun, our historical dictator of time, but Brian discovers that the world doesn't always spin like clockwork -- in fact, it flutters, like an irregular heartbeat. In his search for a more reliable way to tell the time, he experiences the physical definition of a second with a cesium atomic clock, then jets across the Atlantic to discover that time can speed up or slow down depending on how near an object is to a strong gravitational field. Still looking for answers, he consults modern ideas like string theory and quantum mechanics that are pointing the way to future breakthroughs
Our mathematical universe : my quest for the ultimate nature of reality by Max Tegmark ( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Max Tegmark leads us on an astonishing journey through past, present, and future, and through the physics, astronomy, and mathematics that are the foundation of his work, most particularly his hypothesis that our physical reality is a mathematical structure and his theory of the ultimate multiverse. In a dazzling combination of both popular and groundbreaking science, he not only helps us grasp his often mind-boggling theories (his website gives a flavor of how they might boggle the mind), but he also shares with us some of the often surprising triumphs and disappointments that have shaped his life as a scientist.

What is reality? ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There is a strange and mysterious world that surrounds us, a world largely hidden from our senses. The quest to explain the true nature of reality is one of the great scientific detective stories. Clues have been pieced together from deep within the atom, from the event horizon of black holes, and from the far reaches of the cosmos. It may be that that we are part of a cosmic hologram, projected from the edge of the universe. Or that we exist in an infinity of parallel worlds. Your reality may never look quite the same again

The Three-Dimensional Power Spectrum Of Galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We measure the large-scale real-space power spectrum P(k) by using a sample of 205,443 galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, covering 2417 effective square degrees with mean redshift z = 0.1. We employ a matrix-based method using pseudo-Karhunen-Loeve eigenmodes, producing uncorrelated minimum-variance measurements in 22 k-bands of both the clustering power and its anisotropy due to redshift-space distortions with narrow and well-behaved window functions in the range 0.02 h/Mpc <k <0.3 h /Mpc. We pay particular attention to modeling, quantifying, and correcting for potential systematic errors, nonlinear redshift distortions, and the artificial red-tilt caused by luminosity-dependent bias. Our results are robust to omitting angular and radial density fluctuations and are consistent between different parts of the sky. Our final result is a measurement of the real-space matter power spectrum P(k) up to an unknown overall multiplicative bias factor. Our calculations suggest that this bias factor is independent of scale to better than a few percent for k <0.1 h/Mpc, thereby making out results useful for precision measurements of cosmological parameters in conjunction with data from other experiments such as the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe satellite. The power spectrum is not well-characterized by a single power law but unambiguously shows curvature. As a simple characterization of the data, our measurements are well fitted by a flat scale-invariant adiabatic cosmological model with h Omega (sub m) = 0.213 +/- 0.023 and sigma (sub 8) = 0.89 +/- 0.02 for L(sub *) galaxies, when fixing the baryon fraction Omega (sub b)/Omega (sub m) - 0.17 and the Hubble parameter h = 0.72; cosmological interpretation is given in a companion paper

Science and the ultimate reality celebrating the vision of John Archibald Wheeler and taking it forward into a new center of discovery ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The program honored the vision of John Archibald Wheeler in his 90th birthday year. The challenge was to take this vision forward into a new century of discovery. Wheeler is renowned as both a research leader and as an extraordinary teacher for many of the 20th century's most creative physicists. The symposium brought together over 300 accomplished leaders and visionary younger scientists to explore some of the most perplexing questions in physics and cosmology. Speakers include Freeman Dyson, Anton Zeilinger, Nicolas Gisin, J. Richard Gott, Daniel Greenberger, Mary Rowe, Lucien Hardy, Juan Maldacena, Wojciech Zurek, Bryce DeWitt, Max Tegmark, Raymond Chiao, Christopher Monroe, Nideo Mabuchi, Aephraim Steinberg, Jaroslav Pelikan, Philip Clayton, Kitty Ferguson, Timothy Ferris, Charles Harper, Andreas Albrecht, Andrei Linde, Joao Magueiro, Lisa Randall, Lee Smolin, Robert Laughlin, George Ellis, Marcelo Gleiser, and Stuart Kauffman. Topics include a tribute to Wheeler, theory and experiment of quantum reality, and cosmology

Max Tegmark: Our mathematical universe my quest for the ultimate nature of reality ; Dave Goldberg: The universe in the rearview mirror : how hidden symmetries shape reality by Max Tegmark ( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Not your run-of-the mill cosmologist" (Discover), Max Tegmark explores the complex origins and ultimate fate of the cosmos in his erudite and entertaining writing. The Swedish-born theoretical physicist is the author of more than 200 technical papers and has created several of the fundamental data analysis tools, theories, and measurement systems that have advanced modern cosmological study. Elected Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2012, he directs the Foundation Questions Institute and is a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In Our Mathematical Universe, Tegmark explains revolutionary theories about the very nature of reality with common sense, wit, and passion
