Si vous êtes à midi debout dans le soleil, votre ombre trace au sol votre méridienne. Si vous la regardez tourner au fil de la journée, vous êtes un cadran solaire. Des méridiennes orientent des édifices, des villes et des états. Au Brésil, on parle portugais (et non espagnol) à cause d'une méridienne mal placée. En France, la méridienne verte reste un souvenir de la Révolution. Dans le monde entier, on règle sa montre en se référant au méridien de Greenwich. Cette montre n'est qu'une méridienne portative plus régulière que le Soleil. Pour savoir s'il est midi nos ancêtres ont tracé un peu partout des méridiennes, mais on ne les voit pas. Regardons tout cela de plus près.

No man—not Hitler, not Gandhi, not Franklin D. Roosevelt—did more to shape and reshape the twentieth century than Albert Einstein. His ideas exploded centuries of established physics, paving the way for electronics, space exploration, and the atomic bomb. The very device on which you read this blurb would not exist without his work. But amazingly, Einstein’s influence didn’t stop with his scientific ideas; he also became a pre-eminent advocate for world peace and nuclear disarmament, and was offered the presidency of the new state of Israel.<br /><br />In this readable, compact biography, Alexander Kennedy surveys every aspect of this complex, towering figure that pop culture too often reduces to a cartoon absent-minded professor or Apple advertisement. By exploring the darker corners of Einstein’s life—such as the way anti-Semitism shaped his childhood, and the nastiness of his 1919 divorce from Mileva Maric—readers come away with a renewed sense of wonder at his many triumphs. Written with the lay reader in mind, Einstein: A Life of Genius includes readily understandable explanations of even advanced theories such as general relativity. By the end, we not only understand how Albert Einstein’s genius has shaped our past, but how it continues to shape the future of our species as well.<br /><br /><em>"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.

Quantum theory confronts us with bizarre paradoxes which contradict the logic of classical physics. At the subatomic level, one particle seems to know what the others are doing, and according to Heisenberg's "uncertainty principle", there is a limit on how accurately nature can be observed. And yet the theory is amazingly accurate and widely applied, explaining all of chemistry and most of physics. "Introducing Quantum Theory" takes us on a step-by-step tour with the key figures, including Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg and Schrodinger. Each contributed at least one crucial concept to the theory. The puzzle of the wave-particle duality is here, along with descriptions of the two questions raised against Bohr's "Copenhagen Interpretation" - the famous "dead and alive cat" and the EPR paradox. Both remain unresolved.

<b>A straightforward, enjoyable guide to the mathematics of Einstein's relativity –</b> <b><i>THE AMAZON BESTSELLER</i></b><br />To really understand Einstein's theory of relativity – one of the cornerstones of modern physics – you have to get to grips with the underlying mathematics. This self-study guide is aimed at the general reader who is motivated to tackle that not insignificant challenge. With a user-friendly style, clear step-by-step mathematical derivations, many fully solved problems and numerous diagrams, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to a fascinating but complex subject. For those with minimal mathematical background, the first chapter gives a crash course in foundation mathematics. The reader is then taken gently by the hand and guided through a wide range of fundamental topics, including Newtonian mechanics; the Lorentz transformations; tensor calculus; the Einstein field equations; the Schwarzschild solution (which gives a good approximation of the spacetime of our Solar System); simple black holes, relativistic cosmology and gravitational waves.<br /><br />Special relativity helps explain a huge range of non-gravitational physical phenomena and has some strangely counter-intuitive consequences. These include time dilation, length contraction, the relativity of simultaneity, mass-energy equivalence and an absolute speed limit. General relativity, the leading theory of gravity, is at the heart of our understanding of cosmology and black holes.<br /><br /><i>"I must observe that the theory of relativity resembles a building consisting of two separate stories, the special theory and the general theory. The special theory, on which the general theory rests, applies to all physical phenomena with the exception of gravitation; the general theory provides the law of gravitation and its relations to the other forces of nature."</i> – <b><i>Albert Einstein</i></b>, <i>1919</i><br /><br />Understand even the basics of Einstein's amazing theory and the world will never seem the same again.<br /><br /><b>Contents</b><br />Preface<br />Introduction<br />1 Foundation mathematics<br />2 Newtonian mechanics<br />3 Special relativity<br />4 Introducing the manifold<br />5 Scalars, vectors, one-forms and tensors<br />6 More on curvature<br />7 General relativity<br />8 The Newtonian limit<br />9 The Schwarzschild metric<br />10 Schwarzschild black holes<br />11 Cosmology<br />12 Gravitational waves<br />Appendix: The Riemann curvature tensor<br />Bibliography<br />Acknowledgements<br /><br />January 2018 – this updated Kindle edition contains the same text as the third paperback edition (ISBN 9780957389465).

<p>A thorough understanding of physics is one of the cornerstones of a scientific education—but it is often hindered by the density of the subject matter. In a series of informative physics papers, Prof. Jacob V. Kainnady offers an accessible—and at times, controversial—assessment of complex physical phenomena.</p><br /><br /><p>Beginning with a short paper titled “Product Law,” Kainnady’s insightful papers go on to render physics equations as commonsense equivalencies, providing readers with deeper insights into basic physics. From there, Kainnady delves into some of the most intriguing topics in physics, including a sensible analysis of gravitational and electrostatic forces, the sharing of masses between nucleons, and the questions surrounding nuclear-mass defect. He then addresses the discrepancies between classical and quantum physics through a consideration of discontinuous half waves.</p><br /><br /><p>Despite the intricacies of his topics, Kainnady makes his discussions intelligible to anyone used to making commonsense observations—no background in physics required!</p><br /><br /><p>Kainnady’s new findings and observations have the potential to generate lively and productive debate in established academia, while providing an informative introduction to all those hoping to expand their understanding of basic—and not so basic—physics.</p>
