The Thermodynamic Universe-Exploring the Limits of Physics by B G Sidharth

By B G Sidharth

Particle Physics and excessive power Physics have stagnated because the early Nineteen Seventies. Now, the underlying precept of reductionism -- so sacred to twentieth-century physics -- is itself being wondered. This publication examines those tumultuous advancements which are resulting in a paradigm shift and a brand new horizon for Physics.

proposing the recent paradigm in fuzzy spacetime, this e-book is predicated on a few a hundred papers released in peer-reviewed journals together with Foundations of Physics, Nuovo Cimento and The foreign magazine of recent Physics (A&E), in addition to lately released books, The Chaotic Universe (Nova technological know-how, manhattan) and The Universe of Fluctuations (Springer). The paintings had anticipated thoroughly upfront epoch-turning observations, for instance, that the Universe is accelerating with a small cosmological consistent pushed through darkish power while the known line of pondering was once the complete opposite. equally, the prediction of a minimal thermodynamic residual strength within the Universe has additionally been learned extra lately. additional to a unified description of gravitation and electromagnetism through fluctuations, numerous different beneficial properties are provided in whole contract with experiments, in sharp distinction to the current principles that are neither verifiable nor disprovable.

Contents: the bounds of Physics; legislations with out legislations; The Universe of Fluctuations; The Thermodynamic Universe; Spacetime types and assessments; The starting place of Mass, Spin and interplay; The Enigma of Gravitation; An Adventurer s Miscellany.

Nanoscale Phenomena: Basic Science to Device Applications by Zikang Tang, Ping Sheng

By Zikang Tang, Ping Sheng

Nanotechnology is the results of the continued technological pattern towards gadget miniaturization and the characterization, manipulation, and superb regulate of constitution and serve as at diminishing size scales. a wide type of nanoscale fabrics will be good although they're faraway from the lowest-energy thermodynamic nation, and lots of own novel houses impossible in bulk. those tendencies are supported by way of the expanding sophistication of characterization and fabrication instruments comparable to the scanning tunneling microscope and the transmission electron microscope, which enable the answer and manipulation of unmarried atoms and molecules. Nanoscale Phenomena: simple technology to gadget functions offers chosen lectures from the 3rd Workshop of the Croucher complicated examine Institute on Nano technology and know-how, and showcases contributions from world-renowned researchers. Chapters fall into 4 significant different types: Nanostructured Carbon and its purposes, Quantum Dots and Molecular Spintronics, Nanomaterials layout and Synthesis, and Molecular Electronics.

A Mathematical Introduction to Dirac's Formalism by S. J. L. Van Eijndhoven

By S. J. L. Van Eijndhoven

This monograph includes a useful analytic advent to Dirac's formalism. the 1st half offers a few new mathematical notions within the surroundings of triples of Hilbert areas, stating the idea that of Dirac foundation. the second one half introduces a conceptually new thought of generalized capabilities, integrating the notions of the 1st half. The final a part of the booklet is dedicated to a mathematical interpretation of the most positive factors of Dirac's formalism. It comprises a pairing among distributional bras and kets, continuum expansions and continuum matrices.
