The universe in a helium droplet

Author: G E Volovik
Publisher: Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2009.
Series: International series of monographs on physics (Oxford, England), 117.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
There are fundamental relations between three vast areas of physics: particle physics, cosmology and condensed matter physics. The fundamental links between the first two areas, in other words, between micro- and macro- worlds, have been well established. There is a unified system of laws governing the scales from subatomic particles to the Cosmos and this principle is widely exploited in the description of the  Read more...
