From the zeros of the mathematician to the void of the philosophers, from Shakespeare to the empty set, from the ether to the quantum vacuum, from being and nothingness to creatio exnihilo, there is much ado about nothing at the heart of things. Recent exciting discoveries in astronomy are shown to shed new light on the nat

This volume includes contributions by leading workers in the field given at the workshop on Numerical Relativity held in Southampton in December 1991. Numerical Relativity, or the numerical solution of astrophysical problems using powerful computers to solve Einstein's equations, has grown rapidly over the last 15 years. It is now an important route to understanding the structure of the Universe, and is the only route currently available for approaching certain important astrophysical scenarios. The Southampton meeting was notable for the first full report of the new 2+2 approach and the related null or characteristic approaches, as well as for updates on the established 3+1 approach, including both Newtonian and fully relativistic codes. The contributions range from theoretical (formalisms, existence theorems) to the computational (moving grids, multiquadrics and spectral methods).
|Global Structure and Evolution in General Relativity: Proceedings of the First Samos Meeting on Cosmology, Geometry and Relativity Held at Karlovassi. 5–7 September 1994 (Lecture Notes in Physics)
Lowest used price: $877.08
List price: $99.00
The five lectures presented in this volume address very timely mathematical problems in relativity and cosmology. Part I is devoted to the initial value and evolution problems of the Einstein equations. Especially it deals with the Einstein-Yang-Mills-Boltzmann system, fluid models with finite or infinite conductivity, global evolution of a new (two-phase) model for gravitational collapse and the structure of maximal, asymptotically flat, vacuum solutions of the constraint equations which have the additional property of containing trapped surfaces. Part II focuses on geometrical-topological problems in relativity and cosmology: on the role of cosmic censorship for the global structure of the Einstein-Maxwell equations and on the mathematical structure of quantum conformal superspace.

Short description: The Two State Universe book describes a new theory of the universe in which everything existing in the universe exists as complements. Complements are two parts of the whole. There are time separated complements such as an on light and the off light. The on light is separated from the off light by time. There are also space separated complements such as the north pole of a magnet and the south pole of a magnet. The north pole of the magnet is separated from the south pole of the magnet by space. If the complements come together in the same point in space at the same time, the complements will cease to exist. However, complements can occupy a point in space called the G factor, for a brief instant of time to allow the complements to change states. Based on this theory, many of the unanswered riddles and questions of science were answered. The book solves the riddle of what came first the chicken or the egg, how high up is. Can we continue to go up forever? What is light? Is it a wave or a particle? Answering this question, we discovered a new theory of gravity, which led to the unified field theory. The unified field theory was shown to contain the three forces of nature in one equation. Another riddle answered was what happens if we continue to cut a ruler in half? Will we ever reach zero by cutting the ruler in half? Solving this riddle showed that the universe consists of an infinite number of two state points. This finding shows that the universe must contain an aether. Examining the Michelson Morley experiment, we found out why the experiment failed. This finding led to the conclusion that time is an invariant which led to the conclusion that mass is an invariant. Because it was found that mass is an invariant, equations were derived for finding the true mass and energy of all the elements of the Periodic table. The mass and energy of all the elements were listed in tables and plotted in graphic form. This work led to a better understanding of just how an atom bomb works. Many more riddles were examined in The Two State Universe book.

|Key to the Universe : God's Story
Lowest used price: $9.76
Author: W. O. Dust
Is our Universe open or closed? What does that mean? Well. if the Universe is open it will go on expanding forever. On the other hand, if it is closed one day gravity will win. The Universe will stop expanding and move back to the second universal black hole in a 'big crush,' and be obliterated!
The "KEY" to this puzzle is 'dark matter!' Crystal-Ball scientists all over the world are frantically trying to identify this 'dark matter' and determine if enough of it exists to close the Universe!
It was about 4050 B.C. when this 'dark matter' was identified in the Bible's book of Genesis, chapter 1, recorded by Adam. ELAWHEEM, the one true GOD, dictated an abstract of HIS creation activity to Adam. This creation account identifies and describes the characteristics of 'dark matter!'
In the Bible's new testament, the Apostle Peter revealed that the Universe is closed!
Find out how the Universe will end!
Learn three sure signs of the world's ending!
It took over 20 years of study and research to produce this book.
In this book the subject of the 'big-bang' is reviewed. Here the UNIVERSE's BEGINNING and END are discussed from the viewpoint of the Bible's book of Genesis. W.O. Dust uses the original Hebrew text of Genesis to express this subject in MODERN scientific terms! UNTIL NOW, there seemed to be no way to resolve the vast differences between Genesis and modern science. This was especially true for those clinging to positions of fundamental literalism. Here W.O. Dust interprets Genesis in MODERN scientific terms.

|Understanding the Two-State Universe
Lowest new price: $13.95
Lowest used price: $32.15
List price: $13.95
Author: Angelo Molinaro
Understanding The Two State Universe describes a new theory of the universe, proposing that the universe is neither three nor four-dimensional. Rather, it is a two-state universe where everything exists as complements separated by time or space. Using this new theory, the author describes the G factor, a new theory of gravity, a unified field theory, how the atom bomb really works, the aether, why the Michelson-Morley experiment failed, black holes, singularities, speeds faster than light, the dual nature of light, the boundaries of the universe, a solution to the chicken-or-the-egg riddle, and much, much more.

This book is an excellent introduction to the subjects of gravitation and space-time structure. It presumes a good background in special relativity, electrodynamics, and classical mechanics. The book discusses the foundations of Riemannian geometry; the derivation of the Einstein field equations; linearised theory, far fields and gravitational waves; the invariant characterization of exact solutions; gravitational collapse; cosmology; and a final chapter deals with alternative gravitation theories and the problem of quantum gravity. This revised and correct edition brings the experimental evidence up to date. In addition, the sections on quantum gravity have been rewritten and enlarged, and now form a coherent introduction to this subject.

Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press
First published in 1988, this book is a manual of methods for solving problems in radiative transfer. Several of the methods, on operator perturbation as well as on polarised radiative transfer, appeared for the first time in this volume, and the sections dealing with these topics each include introductory articles. The methods described are principally directed at astrophysical plasmas, but the methods are easily adaptable to applications involving other media where self-absorption of the radiation is important. The book is primarily intended for graduate students and research workers in the field of radiative transfer.
