9780553176988: A Brief History Of Time: From Big Bang To Black Holes

In the ten years since its publication in 1988, Stephen Hawking's classic work has become a landmark volume in scientific writing, with more than nine million copies in forty languages sold worldwide. That edition was on the cutting edge of what was then known about the origins and nature of the universe. But the intervening years have seen extraordinary advances in the technology of observing both the micro- and the macrocosmic worlds. These observations have confirmed many of Professor Hawking's theoretical predictions in the first edition of his book, including the recent discoveries of the Cosmic Background Explorer satellite (COBE), which probed back in time to within 300,000 years of the universe's beginning and revealed wrinkles in the fabric of space-time that he had projected. Eager to bring to his original text the new knowledge revealed by these observations, as well as his own recent research, Professor Hawking has prepared a new introduction to the book, written an entirely new chapter on wormholes and time travel, and updated the chapters throughout.

Sinossi:

Was there a beginning of time? Could time run backwards? Is the universe infinite or does it have boundaries? These are just some of the questions considered in an internationally acclaimed masterpiece by one of the world's greatest thinkers. It begins by reviewing the great theories of the cosmos from Newton to Einstein, before delving into the secrets which still lie at the heart of space and time, from the Big Bang to black holes, via spiral galaxies and strong theory. To this day A Brief History of Time remains a staple of the scientific canon, and its succinct and clear language continues to introduce millions to the universe and its wonders.

Recensione:

"This app/book version of Hawking's famous laymen book is just an amazing piece of learning. This makes much more accessible and understandable the complex and awesome topics dealt by Hawking as he explains how our universe works. I am just in awe at how creative he is to produce one of a kind e-book like this. The pace, illustrations and connections of topics within the book are so helpful and so appropriate for the new generation used to tweets and small bites of information. You can flip over some topics when you have some time, learn some amazing fact, and come back later which no rush or worry about how fast you are progressing through the book. Hope other books on complex topics are translated to this format. And I love the updates of the latest science since the publication of the original book. We have learned so much in the last decade that I agree with Hawking, it is an honour to live in this times." ( Ribozyme)

Descrizione libro Bantam Books/Prakash Book Depot., 2001. Softcover. Condizione libro: New. Stephen Hawking?s A Brief History of Time takes its readers on a historical odyssey, presenting the various theories developed by different cultures over many millennia to explain the origin of the Universe. Hawking goes on to explain the actual physics of the Universe. The first half of the book explains complex concepts like quantum physics, the fabric of space-time, particle physics, gravity and Einstein?s Theory of Relativity. In the book, Hawking explains how Einstein changed the way we view the universe by introducing time as the fourth dimension to the traditional three dimensional setting of the universe. Next, the subject of Quantum Mechanics, which deals with matter at the atomic and subatomic levels, is explored. In the second half of the book, Stephen Hawking deals with the subjects that are connected to his own research areas like Black Holes and Hawking Radiation. The books starts off by presenting an interesting story about an elderly woman who challenges the views presented by an astrophysicist and claims that the earth is flat and is supported on the back of a tortoise. This sets a reader friendly tone that?s followed throughout the course of the book! After he was warned by an editor that for each equation in his book, his readership would decrease by almost 50 percent, Hawking relented and kept the equations to a minimum of one ? just E=mc2. A Brief History Of Time From The Big Bang To Black Holes has become a bestseller in its category. The first edition was brought out in 1988 by Bantam Dell Publishing Group. Since then, the book has sold over 10 million copies. It stayed on the bestseller list of The Sunday Times for over four years. Printed Pages: 210. Codice libro della libreria 77723
