Opa Was Macht Ein Physiker . Was f?r eine sch?ne Idee! Siegfried Hess erkl?rt allen Menschen ab 12 Jahren, was die Welt im Innersten zusammenh?lt und was die Physik damit zu tun hat. Die Grundlagen daf?r beginnen mit der Mechanik. Wussten Sie, dass es eine himmlische, eine irdische und eine h?llische Mechanik gibt? Die himmlische Mechanik erkl?rt die Bewegung der Erde um die Sonne und die des Mondes um die Erde. Die irdische besch?ftigt sich mit der Mechanik auf der Erde ? u. a. mit R?dern, Hebeln, dem Fliegen oder Reibung und Bewegungen, und die h?llische Mechanik schlie?lich behandelt den Flug und die Wirkung von Kanonenkugeln und anderen Geschossen. Forscher und ihre Entdeckungen: von Heinrich Hertz bis zu Max Planck Was die klassische Mechanik nicht erkl?ren kann ? die Physik der Atome und Molek?le und ihre Wechselwirkung mit Licht ?, das erkl?rt die Quantenmechanik. Hess stellt? wie auch schon zuvor ? Forscher und Entdecker vor und bringt den Lesern so das Gebiet der Quantenmechanik nahe. Wer eine Auflockerung dazwischen braucht, der kann sich mit dem ?Teekesselspiel ? vergn?gen oder die Fantasiegeschichte ?Was w?re, wenn an der Planck- Konstanten gedreht wird?? lesen. Mitwirkende: Albert Einstein, Max Planck und Max von Laue und viele andere ? frei erfunden von Siegfried Hess.

Theoretical Astrophysics. Beginning from first principles and adopting a modular structure, this book develops the fundamental physical methods needed to describe and understand a wide range of seemingly very diverse astrophysical phenomena and processes. For example, the discussion of radiation processes including their spectra is based on Larmor's equation and extended by the photon picture and the internal dynamics of radiating quantum systems, leading to the shapes of spectral lines and the ideas of radiation transport. Hydrodynamics begins with the concept of phase-space distribution functions and Boltzmann's equation and develops ideal, viscous and magneto-hydrodynamics all from the vanishing divergence of an energy-momentum tensor, opening a natural extension towards relativistic hydrodynamics. Linear stability analysis is introduced and used as a common and versatile tool throughout the book. Aimed at students at graduate level, lecturers teaching courses in theoretical astrophysics or advanced topics in modern astronomy, this book with its abundant examples and exercises also serves as a reference and an entry point for more advanced researchers wanting to update their knowledge of the physical processes that govern the behavior and evolution of astronomical objects.

Nuclear Physics Of Stars. Most elements are synthesized, or "cooked", by thermonuclear reactions in stars. The newly formed elements are released into the interstellar medium during a star's lifetime, and are subsequently incorporated into a new generation of stars, into the planets that form around the stars, and into the life forms that originate on the planets. Moreover, the energy we depend on for life originates from nuclear reactions that occur at the center of the Sun. Synthesis of the elements and nuclear energy production in stars are the topics of nuclear astrophysics, which is the subject of this book. It presents nuclear structure and reactions, thermonuclear reaction rates, experimental nuclear methods, and nucleosynthesis in detail. These topics are discussed in a coherent way, enabling the reader to grasp their interconnections intuitively. The book serves both as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, with worked examples and end-of-chapter excercises, but also as a reference book for use by researchers working in the field of nuclear astrophysics.

Foundations Of Classical And Quantum Electrodynamics. This advanced textbook covers many fundamental, traditional and new branches of electrodynamics, as well as the related fields of special relativity, quantum mechanics and quantum electrodynamics. The book introduces the material at different levels, oriented towards 3rd-4th year bachelor, master, and PhD students. This is so as to describe the whole complexity of physical phenomena, instead of a mosaic of disconnected data. The required mathematical background is collated in Chapter 1, while the necessary physical background is included in the main text of the corresponding chapters and also given in appendices. The content is based on teaching material tested on students over many years, and their training to apply general theory for solving scientific and engineering problems. To this aim, the book contains approximately 800 examples and problems, many of which are described in detail. Some of these problems are designed for students to work on their own with only the answers and descriptions of results, and may be solved selectively. The examples are key ingredients to the theoretical course; the user should study all of them while reading the corresponding chapters. Equally suitable as a reference for researchers specialized in science and engineering.

Understanding Physics. Understanding Physics – Second edition is a comprehensive, yet compact, introductory physics textbook aimed at physics undergraduates and also at engineers and other scientists taking a general physics course. Written with today's students in mind, this text covers the core material required by an introductory course in a clear and refreshing way. A second colour is used throughout to enhance learning and understanding. Each topic is introduced from first principles so that the text is suitable for students without a prior background in physics. At the same time the book is designed to enable students to proceed easily to subsequent courses in physics and may be used to support such courses. Mathematical methods (in particular, calculus and vector analysis) are introduced within the text as the need arises and are presented in the context of the physical problems which they are used to analyse. Particular aims of the book are to demonstrate to students that the easiest, most concise and least ambiguous way to express and describe phenomena in physics is by using the language of mathematics and that, at this level, the total amount of mathematics required is neither large nor particularly demanding. 'Modern physics' topics (relativity and quantum mechanics) are introduced at an earlier stage than is usually found in introductory textbooks and are integrated with the more 'classical' material from which they have evolved. This book encourages students to develop an intuition for relativistic and quantum concepts at as early a stage as is practicable. The text takes a reflective approach towards the scientific method at all stages and, in keeping with the title of the text, emphasis is placed on understanding of, and insight into, the material presented.

The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared. Sitting quietly in his room in an old people's home, Allan Karlsson is waiting for a party he doesn't want to begin. His one-hundredth birthday party to be precise. The Mayor will be there. The press will be there. But, as it turns out, Allan will not . . . Escaping (in his slippers) through his bedroom window, into the flowerbed, Allan makes his getaway. And so begins his picaresque and unlikely journey involving criminals, several murders, a suitcase full of cash, and incompetent police. As his escapades unfold, Allan's earlier life is revealed. A life in which - remarkably - he played a key role behind the scenes in some of the momentous events of the twentieth century. Translated by Roy Bradbury.

Ulysses Annotated . Ulysses (1922) is a novel by the Irish author James Joyce. It was first serialised in parts in the American journal The Little Review from March 1918 to December 1920, and then published in its entirety by Sylvia Beach on 2 February 1922, in Paris. Joyce's technical innovations in the art of the novel... he used a complex network of symbolic parallels drawn from the mythology, history, and literature, and created a unique language of invented words, puns, and allusions. One of the most important works of Modernist literature, it has been called "a demonstration and summation of the entire movement". "Before Joyce, no writer of fiction had so foregrounded the process of thinking." Written over a seven-year period from 1914 to 1921. No book has ever been more eagerly and curiously awaited by the strange little inner circle of book-lovers and littérateurs than James Joyce's "Ulysses".

Physik Der Schwermut. Der Erzähler von Georgi Gospodinovs zweitem Roman leidet an übergroßer Empathie: er kann und muss sich in alles und jeden einfühlen und erlebt dann, was diese anderen erleben – ob das nun sein Großvater am Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts war, der kleine in ein Labyrinth weggesperrte Minotauros oder eine Schnecke, die gerade verschluckt wird. Aber auch, dass die Zeit unwiederbringlich vergeht, macht ihm zu schaffen; und er geht mit Zeitkapseln dagegen vor: Behälter, in die alles hineinkommt, was für die Gegenwart wichtig ist. Aber was ist wichtig? Zu diesem Zweck wiederum müssen Listen angelegt werden, eine im alten Ostblock bei Kindern und Jugendlichen ohnehin beliebte Praxis. Aus zahlreichen kurzen poetischen Kapiteln komponiert Gospodinov einen melancholischen Roman, der – wie oft bei Melancholikern – amüsiert und überrascht, und unterstreicht damit nachhaltig seinen weltliterarischen Rang. Seine Vergegenwärtigung altgriechischer Mythen ist ebenso denkwürdig wie seine Erinnerung an 40 Jahre bulgarischen Kommunismus. Und dass das Festhalten des gegenwärtigen Augenblicks eine vergebliche Aufgabe ist: es hindert ihn nicht daran, sich dieser Aufgabe von Seite zu Seite immer wieder neu zu stellen.
