Beyond smoke and mirrors : climate change and energy in the 21st century by Burton Richter( Book )

27 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Global climate change is one of the most important issues humanity faces today. This book assesses the sensible, senseless and biased proposals for averting the potentially disastrous consequences of global warming, allowing the reader to draw their own conclusions on switching to more sustainable energy provision. Burton Richter is a Nobel Prize-winning scientist who has served on many US and international review committees on climate change and energy issues. He provides a concise overview of our knowledge and uncertainties within climate change science, discusses current energy demand and supply patterns, and the energy options available to cut emissions of greenhouse gases. Written in non-technical language, this book presents a balanced view of options for moving from our heavy reliance on fossil fuels into a much more sustainable energy system, and is accessible to a wide range of readers without scientific backgrounds - students, policymakers, and the concerned citizen"--Provided by publisher

Particle physics( Visual )

2 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quantum mechanics described phenomena of infinite smallness and provided a coherent description of the atom and the interactions of its constituent parts as well as a standard model that unified three of the four forces at work in nature, conflicting with gravitation. Includes interviews with Murray Gell-Mann, Steven Weinberg, Burton Richter, Ugo Amaldi, Pierre Dariulat and others

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 thirty-six 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 high-energy 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
