Our Minds Tell us that some things in the universe must be true. The New Physics tells us that they are not, and in the process, blurs the line between science and science fiction. Here are six accessible essays by those who walk that line, moving ever further out in discovering the patterns of nature, aimed at readers who share their fascination with the deepest mysteries of the universe.-- Richard Price: An Introduction to Spacetime Physics-- Stephen Hawking: Chronology Protection-- Igor Novikov: Can We Change the Past?-- Kip S. Thorne: Speculations about the Future-- Timothy Ferris: On the Popularization of Science-- Alan Lightman: The Physicist as Novelist

› Find signed collectible books: 'Gravitation (Physics Series)'
This landmark text offers a rigorous full-year graduate level course on gravitation physics, teaching students to:
" Grasp the laws of physics in flat spacetime
" Predict orders of magnitude
" Calculate using the principal tools of modern geometry
" Predict all levels of precision
" Understand Einstein's geometric framework for physics
" Explore applications, including pulsars and neutron stars, cosmology, the Schwarzschild geometry and gravitational collapse, and gravitational waves
" Probe experimental tests of Einstein's theory
" Tackle advanced topics such as superspace and quantum geometrodynamics
The book offers a unique, alternating two-track pathway through the subject:
" In many chapters, material focusing on basic physical ideas is designated as
Track 1. These sections together make an appropriate one-term advanced/graduate level course (mathematical prerequisites: vector analysis and simple partial-differential equations). The book is printed to make it easy for readers to identify these sections.
" The remaining Track 2 material provides a wealth of advanced topics instructors can draw from to flesh out a two-term course, with Track 1 sections serving as prerequisites.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Quantum Measurement'
This book is an up-to-date introduction to the quantum theory of measurement. Although the main principles of the field were elaborated in the 1930s by Bohr, Schrödinger, Heisenberg, von Neuman, and Mandelstam, it was not until the 1980s that technology became sufficiently advanced to allow its application in real experiments. Quantum measurement is now central to many ultra-high technology developments, such as "squeezed light," single atom traps, and searches for gravitational radiation. It is also considered to have great promise for computer science and engineering, particularly for its applications in information processing and transfer. The book begins with a brief introduction to the relevant theory and goes on to discuss all aspects of the design of practical quantum measurement systems.
