The subject of quantum cosmology is concerned with providing a quantum mechanical description of the universe as a whole and, within that description, to constructing a theory of the universe's initial condition whose predictions can be compared with observation. The recent progress in this area has profound implications for physics at all scales. The lectures at this school describe these theories and their implications. They cover basic quantum mechanics of cosmology, proposals for theories of initial conditions, and their application to the prediction of the large scale features of our universe. A special emphasis of the school is the implication of topological fluctuations of spacetime (wormholes, baby universes) for the observed coupling constants of the low energy interactions of elementary particles and as a potential explanation for the vanishing of the cosmological constant

Program 6: We now know that the universe had a beginning and how all the matter formed but there is still one outstanding question: how did the Big Bang begin? Stephen Hawking is joined by other leading scientists as they try to answer this question. Includes discussions of inflation theory, quantum mechanics, and string theory

Classical electron theory from a modern standpoint by
Sidney Coleman(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The classical theory of a charged point particle interacting with the electromagnetic field is developed from first principles. The formalism is constructed so as to reveal the underlying physic and to stress the similarity between the classical theory and the corresponding quantum theory. A number of traditionally troublesome points are discussed, including the electro agnetic selfenergy, the relativistic radiationreaction eq ation, the occurrence and removal of runaway modes, the radiation from a uniformly accelerated charge, an the relation between Maxwell's electrodynamics and the actionatadistance theory of Wheeler and Feynman.

Andrew Pickering interviews conducted for his book CONSTRUCTING QUARKS by
Andrew Pickering(
)
in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Consists of interviews with thirtysix particle physicists, conducted as background material for his book CONSTRUCTING QUARKS: A SOCIOLOGICAL HISTORY OF PARTICLE PHYSICS, published in 1984. Pickering sought to document the founding and growth of research traditions structured around the quark concept, therefore, almost all interviews focused upon the interviewee's overall research career rather than narrowly defined historical episodes. They cover the period from 1964 when the quark model was formulated to 1980 when quark theories had come to dominate research practice in highenergy physics. More specific topics include J/psi color models, Fairbank's fractional charges, and the Price magnetic monopoole. Participants include: Henry Abarbanel, Luis W. Alvarez, Barry Barish, A. O. Barut, John Bell, James Bjorken, Elliott D. Bloom, Gordon Feldman, Geoffrey Chew, Sidney Coleman, A. De Rujula, Sid Drell, John Ellis, P.G.O. Freund, Erwin Gabathuler, Mary Gaillard, H. Georgi, Gerson Goldhaber, Sheldon Glashow, Peter Higgs, Roman Jackiw, R. L. Jaffe, P. V. Langshoff, Ed Lofgren, Seymour Joseph Lindenbaum, Francis Eugene Low, Y. Nambu, Robert B. Palmer, and Hugh David Politzer, Charles Prescott, P. Buford Price, Chris Quigg, B. Richter, A. Salam, G. t'Hooft, and C. N. Yang

Electrodynamic properties of baryons in the unitary symmetry scheme by
Sidney Coleman(
)
1 edition published in 1961 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
GellMann(1) recently introduced a theory of the components of strong interactions involving a new symmetry, called "unitary symmetry." The principal purpose of this note is to use this symmetry to express the magnetic moments of all the baryons in terms of those of the neutron and proton. We also derive a relation among baryon electromagnetic mass splittings

Growing hair on black holes by
Sidney Coleman(
)
1 edition published in 1991 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A black hole can carry quantum numbers that are not associated with massless gauge fields, contrary to the spirit of the "nohair" theorems. In the Higgs phase of a gauge theory, electric charge on a black hole generates a nonzero electric field outside the event horizon. This field is nonperturbative in ħ and is exponentially screened far from the hole. It arises from the cloud of virtual cosmic strings that surround the black hole. In the confinement phase, a magnetic charge on a black hole generates a classical field that is screened at long range by nonperturbative effects. Despite the sharp difference in their formal descriptions, the electric and magnetic cases are closely similar physically
