This book is a labor of love for Dr Wu Weimin whose favorite photography subjects are ordinary events which capture the heart of the common folks. The cameras Dr Wu uses may not be the most sophisticated but the images he has taken are truly striking. His award-winning collections of photographs are very well received worldwide. The introduction written by Dr Rick Vidal of Fermilab was endorsed by Dr Leon Lederman, Nobel Laureate in Physics (1988). Being a physicist by training, Dr Wu was among the pioneer scientists who helped to develop China's first atomic bomb and to launch its first satellite. He also participated in building the first Chinese electron-positron collider. Another extraordinary feat is that he sent out the very first e-mail from China on 25 August 1986.
Writers from Dave Barry to Kurt Vonnegut to James McBride, and from Anna Quindlen to Susanna Kaysen, share thoughts about their favorite books.
'A beautifully crafted love letter to physics.' Nature 'A book more about life and passion than physics. People who have never cared a jot about physics (like me) must read this book.' SUZANNE O'SULLIVAN The Consolations of Physics is an eloquent manifesto for physics. In an age where uncertainty and division is rife, Tim Radford, science editor of the Guardian for twenty-five years, turns to the wonders of the universe for consolation. 'A beautiful, inspiring reflection on science, humanity, space, and matter.' SARAH BAKEWELL From the launch of the Voyager spacecraft and how it furthered our understanding of planets, stars and galaxies to the planet composed entirely of diamond and graphite and the sound of a blacksmith's anvil; from the hole NASA drilled in the heavens to the discovery of the Higgs Boson and the endeavours to prove the Big Bang, The Consolations of Physics will guide you from a tiny particle to the marvels of outer space.
This book is filled with computational exercise, misconception-busting questions, analogies, and straightforward practice questions and problems that help students "tie it all together."
Stanley Deser is a preeminent theoretical physicist who made monumental contributions to general relativity, quantum field theory and high energy physics; he is a co-creator of supergravity. This is his personal story, intended for a broad, scientifically curious audience, with emphasis on the historic figures that defined the modern aspects of the field.Beginning with an account of his early life in Europe during the fateful period leading up to WW2, it continues with his family's dramatic escape from the Nazis through their arrival to the US. His education at public institutions including Brooklyn College nurtured his love of physics from an early age. He earned his PhD at Harvard and spent fruitful postdoc years at the Institute for Advanced Study and the Niels Bohr Institute, where he met many of the luminaries of the field. Then followed a long career at Brandeis University and many visits to foreign institutions.His work earned him many awards and led to exotic experiences detailed in the later chapters. The appendices contain semi-technical descriptions of some essential physics, as well as a more general commentary about the role of physics and physicists in understanding the universe.
The Kitchen Pantry Scientist: Physics for Kids features biographies of 25 leading physicists, past and present, accompanied by accessible, hands-on experiments and activities to bring the history and principles of physics alive.
Quiet, bookish Amanda wants to learn about sex as she would any other subject: with a textbook and practical lessons. After a damaging relationship with her first boyfriend ends, she asks her physics lab partner Andrew for help. He's a popular lad who's dated and discarded almost every senior girl in school. Amanda is one of the clever-set who exist in the social margins. Determined to lose her virginity and gain knowledge, she decides to use Andrew as he uses girls, without getting emotionally involved. Well, you know what they say about best laid plans. Set in a Scottish high school in the 1980s, Love and the Laws of Physics is a compelling love story of a young woman trying to navigate the landscapes of sex and romance. Full of tenderness, eroticism and humour, the twisty plot of misunderstandings and missed opportunities makes for an amusing yet touching comedy of errors, and offers a keen look at the intensity and anguish of young love. And, for the curious reader, a guide to sex is woven subtly into the fabric of this romance. If you like books about sex and relationships or you want to learn more about sexual pleasure, you'll enjoy Love and the Laws of Physics.
