Energy, Matter, Intelligence, and Life (EMIL)

Energy, Matter, Intelligence, and Life (EMIL) Lowest new price: $13.94
Lowest used price: $17.92
List price: $14.95
Author: Sorin G. Popa
Brand: Brand: ECDM Press

This book presents a novel view on the formation and evolution of the Universe. It focuses on the importance of the living matter and offers plausible hypotheses regarding its evolution. Thus, energy, matter, intelligence, and life are treated as hierarchical systems and their evolution is described accordingly. Furthermore, it is shown how geometry and numerology play very important roles in the evolution of the systems contained within the Universe. Another important element covered by the book is information, which is treated as a main component of any structure within the Universe. Through evolution informational structures led to the formation of intelligent structures. The book covers both modern and ancient concepts, ranging from the Big Bang, to brain waves, to the power of the pyramid and to the Golden Number.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
 
Published more than two decades ago to great critical acclaim and commercial success, A Brief History of Time has become a landmark volume in science writing. Stephen Hawking, one of the great minds of our time, explores such profound questions as: How did the universe begin?and what made its start possible? Does time always flow forward? Is the universe unending?or are there boundaries? Are there other dimensions in space? What will happen when it all ends?
 
Told in language we all can understand, A Brief History of Time plunges into the exotic realms of black holes and quarks, of antimatter and “arrows of time,” of the big bang and a bigger God?where the possibilities are wondrous and unexpected. With exciting images and profound imagination, Stephen Hawking brings us closer to the ultimate secrets at the very heart of creation.

List price: $34.95
Author: Jupiter Scientific Publishing Company
Brand: Brand: Jupiter Scientific

(Inside jacket flap text) An important moment in science has arrived. During the past few centuries, human knowledge of Nature has increased manyfold. Scientists are now able to do things previously thought to be impossible: The fabrication of exotic kinds of matter that do not exist in Nature, the exploration of outer space by sophisticated man- made probes, and the cloning of life forms are just a few examples. We have achieved a new understanding of how the Universe works. This knowledge is precious, almost sacred -- it is the culmination of the efforts of countless scientists. The philosophical implications are immense: We now see our place in the Universe differently than we did a few centuries ago. The age of scientific enlightenment is upon us.

This knowledge has now been assembled in a single book. The Bible According to Einstein is a comprehensive compendium of scientific discoveries and insights. Adopting a biblical format, it is divided into two works: an "Old Testament" and a "New Testament."

What was the Universe like during the initial moments of Creation? When did the stars and galaxies appear? How did the Sun and Earth form? In the "Old Testament," the history of the Universe is narrated from the beginning to the present. The remarkable geological and biological evolution of our planet is "resurrected in words," starting with the emergence of life, continuing to the growth of complex organisms, moving to the reign of the ruling reptiles, and ending with the appearance of mammals and man. The development of our Universe and our World is an amazing story.

What are the natural "commandments" that govern all? How did human spirituality and intelligence emerge? After addressing these questions, the "New Testament" goes on to deliver the laws of Nature and to reveal the extraordinary workmanship of the Universe. Here the reader discovers Nature's fundamental elements: from the quark to the atom, from the double helix DNA molecule to the cell, from the Earth to the celestial heaven. Unveiled is the intrinsic beauty of our Universe.

The great physicist and Nobel laureate Richard Feynman once said (in slightly different words): The fact that I understand this rose -- the light reflected off its surface, how it is composed of cells, why it is red, the evolutionary origin of the bees' attraction to it, and so on -- these things do not in any way diminish my appreciation of its beauty. In fact, they enhance my ability to enjoy the rose.

Look inside this book and experience the World. Discover the knowledge of "Nature's gospels." Here before you is an offering -- the gift of scientific enlightenment.

Gravitational Physics of Stellar and Galactic Systems (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics)

Gravitational Physics of Stellar and Galactic Systems (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics) Lowest used price: $25.00
List price: $100.00
Author: William C. Saslaw

This text describes the gravitational interactions and evolution of astronomical systems on all scales, from small groups of stars through galaxies and clusters of galaxies to the Universe itself. In a rapidly developing area of astronomy, it is the first comprehensive treatise on the subject to be published since the early 1960s. Concentrating on the basic physics, at a graduate student level, it also develops many astronomical applications in considerable detail. The book is self-contained. Most results are derived from preceding ones in a straightforward way. It is written to bring out the physical content behind the mathematical formulae, and contains a number of exercises and suggestions for research topics. Bibliographies with nearly 300 selected references provide gateways into the literature.
