The Visual Language of Technique: Volume 2 - Heritage and Expectations in Research by Luigi Cocchiarella
English | PDF(Repost),EPUB | 2015 | 178 Pages | ISBN : 331905340X | 15.5 MB

The book is inspired by the second seminar in a cycle connected to the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the Politecnico di Milano (June 2013). "Working with the Image. Description Processing Prediction" was the motto of this meeting, aiming to point out the role of Visual Language not only in describing reality, but also in supporting the thinking processes in Science (prediction), in Art (invention), in Technical studies (prevision), and in identifying and working on both visible and invisible phenomena.

Gravity, a Geometrical Course Volume 1: Development of the Theory and Basic Physical Applications by Pietro Giuseppe Frè
English | PDF,EPUB(Repost) | 2013 | 346 Pages | ISBN : 9400753608 | 10.1 MB

‘Gravity, a Geometrical Course’ presents general relativity (GR) in a systematic and exhaustive way, covering three aspects that are homogenized into a single texture: i) the mathematical, geometrical foundations, exposed in a self consistent contemporary formalism, ii) the main physical, astrophysical and cosmological applications, updated to the issues of contemporary research and observations, with glimpses on supergravity and superstring theory, iii) the historical development of scientific ideas underlying both the birth of general relativity and its subsequent evolution. The book is divided in two volumes.

Solar History: An Introduction

Solar History: An Introduction by Claudio Vita-Finzi
English | PDF(Repost),EPUB | 2013 | 96 Pages | ISBN : 9400742940 | 5 MB

Beyond the four centuries of sunspot observation and the five decades during which artificial satellites have monitored the Sun – that is to say for 99.99999% of the Sun’s existence – our knowledge of solar history depends largely on analogy with kindred main sequence stars, on the outcome of various kinds of modelling, and on indirect measures of solar activity.

English | PDF(Repost),EPUB | 2013 | 250 Pages | ISBN : 1461445957 | 16.51 MB

Modeling Ships and Space Craft: The Science and Art of Mastering the Oceans and Sky begins with the theories of Aristotle and Archimedes, moving on to examine the work of Froude and Taylor, the early aviators and the Wright Brothers, Goddard and the other rocket men, and the computational fluid dynamic models of our time. It examines the ways each used fluid dynamic principles in the design of their vessels.

Re-Thinking Time at the Interface of Physics and Philosophy: The Forgotten Present

Re-Thinking Time at the Interface of Physics and Philosophy: The Forgotten Present by Albrecht von Müller
English | EPUB | 2015 | 277 Pages | ISBN : 3319104454 | 2.83 MB

The current volume of the Parmenides Series “On Thinking” addresses our deepest and most personal experience of the world, the experience of “the present,” from a modern perspective combining physics and philosophy. Many prominent researchers have contributed articles to the volume, in which they present models and express their opinions on and, in some cases, also their skepticism about the subject and how it may be (or may not be) addressed, as well as which aspects they consider most relevant in this context.

English | EPUB | 2015 | 369 Pages | ISBN : 3662446618 | 2.52 MB

This book tells the fascinating story of the people and events behind the turbulent changes in attitudes to quantum theory in the second half of the 20th century. The huge success of quantum mechanics as a predictive theory has been accompanied, from the very beginning, by doubts and controversy about its foundations and interpretation.

The Emerging Quantum: The Physics Behind Quantum Mechanics by Luis de la Peña
English | EPUB | 2015 | 371 Pages | ISBN : 3319078925 | 4.19 MB

This monograph presents the latest findings from a long-term research project intended to identify the physics behind Quantum Mechanics. A fundamental theory for quantum mechanics is constructed from first physical principles, revealing quantization as an emergent phenomenon arising from a deeper stochastic process.

A History of the Solar System by Claudio Vita-Finzi
English | PDF | 2016 | 110 Pages | ISBN : 331933848X | 14.81 MB

This well illustrated book presents a compact history of the Solar System from its dusty origins 4,600,000 years ago to the present day. Its primary aim is to show how the planets and their satellites, comets, meteors, interplanetary dust, solar radiation and cosmic rays continually interact, sometimes violently, and it reflects humanity's progress in exploring and interpreting this history. The book is intended for a general readership at a time when human and robotic exploration of space is often in the news and should also appeal to students at all levels. It covers the essentials but refers to a large literature which can be accessed via the internet.

Archaeoastronomy in the Roman World by Giulio Magli
English | PDF,EPUB | 2019 | 226 Pages | ISBN : 3319970062 | 67.2 MB

This book explores the insights that Cultural Astronomy provides into the classical Roman world by unveiling the ways in which the Romans made use of their knowledge concerning the heavens, and by shedding new light on the interactions between astronomy and heritage in ancient Roman culture. Leading experts in the field present fascinating information on how and why the Romans referred to the sky when deciding upon the orientation of particular monuments, temples, tombs and even urban layouts. Attention is also devoted to questions of broader interest, such as the contribution that religious interpretation of the sky made in the assimilation of conquered peoples.

This work gathers together, without substantial modification, the major­ ity of the historical Notes which have appeared to date in my Elements de M atMmatique. Only the flow has been made independent of the Elements to which these Notes were attached; they are therefore, in principle, accessible to every reader who possesses a sound classical mathematical background, of undergraduate standard.
