Most widely held works by Stephen Hawking
A brief history of time : from the big bang to black holes by Stephen Hawking( Book )
308 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 19 languages and held by 11,415 libraries worldwide
In the years since the publication of Hawking's A Brief History of Time, readers have repeatedly told Hawking of their great difficulty in understanding some of the book's most important concepts. This is the reason for A Briefer History: his wish to make its content more accessible to readers--as well as to bring it up-to-date with the latest scientific observations and findings. Purely technical concepts, such as the mathematics of chaotic boundary conditions, are gone. Conversely, subjects of wide interest that have now been given entire chapters of their own, including relativity, curved space, and quantum theory. This reorganization has allowed the authors to expand areas of recent progress, from string theory to exciting developments in the search for a unified theory of all the forces of physics.--From publisher description
The universe in a nutshell by Stephen Hawking( Book )
73 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in 13 languages and held by 4,275 libraries worldwide
Like many in the community of theoretical physicists, Professor Hawking is after the Grail of science, the theory of everything that lies at the heart of the cosmos. He involves us in the attempts at uncovering its secrets, from supergravity to supersymmetry, from quantum theory to M-theory, from holography to duality, and now, at the very frontiers of science, superstring theory and p-branes. He shares his eagerness to "combine Einstein's general theory of relativity and Richard Feynman's idea of multiple histories into a complete unified theory that will describe everything that happens in the universe." With characteristic exuberance, Hawking invites us to be fellow travelers on this extraordinary voyage through spacetime
The grand design by Stephen Hawking( Book )
80 editions published between 1120 and 2015 in 21 languages and held by 3,914 libraries worldwide
Along with Caltech physicist Mlodinow (The Drunkard's Walk), University of Cambridge cosmologist Hawking (A Brief History of Time) deftly mixes cutting-edge physics to answer three key questions-- Why is there something rather than nothing? Why do we exist? Why this particular set of laws and not some other?-- and explains that scientists are approaching what is called "M-theory," a collection of overlapping theories (including string theory) that fill in many (but not all) the blank spots in quantum physics. This collection is known as the "Grand Unified Field Theories

The nature of space and time by Stephen Hawking( Book )
70 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 2,042 libraries worldwide
Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein's general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united in a single quantum theory of gravity? Two of the world's most famous physicists--Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose--disagree on this. Here they explain their positions in a work based on six lectures with a final debate, all originally presented at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the University of Cambridge.--From publisher description

The illustrated A brief history of time by Stephen Hawking( Book )
31 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,742 libraries worldwide
The book was on the cutting edge of what was then known about the nature of the universe, but since that time there have been extraordinary advances in the technology of observing both the micro- and the macrocosmic worlds. These observations have confirmed many of Professor Hawking's theoretical predictions in the first edition of his book, including the recent discoveries of the Cosmic Background Explorer satellite (COBE), which probed back in time to within 300,000 years of the universe's beginning and revealed wrinkles in the fabric of space-time that he had projected. Eager to bring his original text the new knowledge revealed by these many observations, as well as his most recent research, for this expanded edition Professor Hawking has prepared a new introduction to the book, written an entirely new chapter on the fascinating subject of wormholes and time travel, and updated the original chapters. This edition is enhanced throughout with more than 240 full-color illustrations, including satellite images, photographs made possible by spectacular technological advances such as the Hubble Space Telescope, and computer-generated images of three and four dimensional realities

Hawking on the big bang and black holes by Stephen Hawking( Book )
17 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 401 libraries worldwide
Stephen Hawking, the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, has made important theoretical contributions to gravitational theory and has played a major role in the development of cosmology and black hole physics. Hawking's early work, partly in collaboration with Roger Penrose, showed the significance of spacetime singularities for the big bang and black holes. His later work has been concerned with a deeper understanding of these two issues. The work required extensive use of the two great intellectual achievements of the first half of the Twentieth Century: general relativ
