Download The Theory of Almost Everything: The Standard Model, the by Robert Oerter PDF

By Robert Oerter

There are medical theories that, taken jointly, clarify the full universe. the 1st, which describes the strength of gravity, is well known: Einstein’s basic idea of Relativity. however the idea that explains every thing else—the average version of straight forward Particles—is nearly unknown one of the common public.

In The conception of virtually Everything, Robert Oerter indicates how what have been as soon as considered separate forces of nature have been mixed right into a unmarried thought via one of the most outstanding minds of the 20th century. wealthy with obtainable analogies and lucid prose, The concept of just about Everything celebrates a heretofore unsung fulfillment in human knowledge—and finds the chic constitution that underlies the area as we all know it.

Download Neutrinos - die perfekte Welle: Vom Nobelpreis in die Welt by Heinrich Päs PDF

By Heinrich Päs

Dieses Buch handelt von den wohl rätselhaftesten Teilchen des Universums: den Neutrinos. Wie Chamäleons wechseln sie nach den Gesetzen von Quantentheorie und Teilchenphysik ihre Identität. Dabei sind sie nicht wahrnehmbar und kaum nachweisbar und können dennoch entscheidend dazu beitragen, die größten Rätsel des Universums zu entschlüsseln: die Struktur von Raum und Zeit und die Existenz und Vielfältigkeit der materiellen Welt.Wieso liegt die Natur der Neutrino-Masse immer noch im Dunkeln? Wie stehen die Teilchen zu Higgs, Extradimensionen und Supersymmetrie? was once hat das alles mit Zeitmaschinen zu tun?
Unterhaltsam und allgemeinverständlich nimmt Heinrich Päs den Leser mit auf eine spannende Entdeckungsreise in die Welt der kleinsten Teilchen - eine Geschichte mit Geheimkulten, toten Philosophen, bewusstseinserweiternden Drogen, dem mysteriösen Verschwinden genialer Wissenschaftler, unterirdischen Forschungslaboren und Experimenten in der Arktis – und bleibt dennoch wissenschaftlich korrekt. Der Autor erklärt und spekuliert ganz konkret, wie es weiter gehen könnte mit den Neutrinos, und wie radikal die Nobelpreis-gekrönten Entdeckungen unser Bild vom Universum verändern könnten.
