## Advanced Electromagnetism: Foundations, Theory and Applications

**Author**: Terence W Barrett,Dale M Grimes**Publisher:**World Scientific**ISBN:**9814501085**Category:**Science**Page:**808**View:**6320

Advanced Electromagnetism: Foundations, Theory and Applications treats what is conventionally called electromagnetism or Maxwell's theory within the context of gauge theory or Yang-Mills theory. A major theme of this book is that fields are not stand-alone entities but are defined by their boundary conditions. The book has practical relevance to efficient antenna design, the understanding of forces and stresses in high energy pulses, ring laser gyros, high speed computer logic elements, efficient transfer of power, parametric conversion, and many other devices and systems. Conventional electromagnetism is shown to be an underdeveloped, rather than a completely developed, field of endeavor, with major challenges in development still to be met.

## Unified Field Mechanics: Natural Science Beyond The Veil Of Spacetime - Proceedings Of The Ix Symposium Honoring Noted French Mathematical Physicist Jean-pierre Vigier

**Author**: Amoroso Richard L,Kauffman Louis H,Rowlands Peter**Publisher:**World Scientific**ISBN:**9814719072**Category:**Science**Page:**620**View:**2336

Unified Field Mechanics, the topic of the 9th international symposium honoring noted French mathematical physicist Jean-Pierre Vigier cannot be considered highly speculative as a myopic critic might surmise. The 8th Vigier Symposium proceedings 'The Physics of Reality' should in fact be touted as a companion volume because of its dramatic theoretical Field Mechanics in additional dimensionality. Many still consider the Planck-scale zero-point field stochastic quantum foam as the 'basement of reality'. This could only be considered true under the limitations of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum theory. As we enter the next regime of Unified Field Mechanics we now know that the energy-dependent Einstein-Minkowski manifold called spacetime has a finite radius beyond which a large-scale multiverse beckons. So far a battery of 14 experiments has been designed to falsify the model. When the 1st is successfully performed, a revolution in Natural Science will occur! This volume strengthens and expands the theoretical and experimental basis for that immanent new age.

## The Search for the Meaning of Space, Time, and Matter

*Images of Many Travels*

**Author**: Kai Woehler**Publisher:**Xlibris Corporation**ISBN:**146910198X**Category:**Science**Page:**447**View:**9650

The book gives a comprehensive introduction for interested general readers, into the development and structure of concepts, ideas and theory formation about the elementary building blocks of matter, the forces with which these particles interact and about the fundamental nature of space itself. Einsteins theory of the cosmos and the recent discovery of the presence of a dark energy which leads to an accelerated expansion of cosmic space, provide the background for the most astonishing recent developments in the search for the origin of space and matter. The String-Theory revolution has led to the notion that nature may not follow one unique set of laws to build worlds, but that innumerable many possible universes may exist, that worlds may be emerging and disappearing like biological species and that our existence may be extraordinarily rare and therefore precious. An introduction to the concept of emergence in self-organizing systems is given to make the connection to the idea that Emergence may be the inherent creative property of space and matter at the quantum level.

## Symplectic Techniques in Physics

**Author**: Victor Guillemin,Shlomo Sternberg**Publisher:**Cambridge University Press**ISBN:**9780521389907**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**468**View:**8618

Symplectic geometry is very useful for clearly and concisely formulating problems in classical physics and also for understanding the link between classical problems and their quantum counterparts. It is thus a subject of interest to both mathematicians and physicists, though they have approached the subject from different view points. This is the first book that attempts to reconcile these approaches. The authors use the uncluttered, coordinate-free approach to symplectic geometry and classical mechanics that has been developed by mathematicians over the course of the last thirty years, but at the same time apply the apparatus to a great number of concrete problems. In the first chapter, the authors provide an elementary introduction to symplectic geometry and explain the key concepts and results in a way accessible to physicists and mathematicians. The remainder of the book is devoted to the detailed analysis and study of the ideas discussed in Chapter 1. Some of the themes emphasized in the book include the pivotal role of completely integrable systems, the importance of symmetries, analogies between classical dynamics and optics, the importance of symplectic tools in classical variational theory, symplectic features of classical field theories, and the principle of general covariance. This work can be used as a textbook for graduate courses, but the depth of coverage and the wealth of information and application means that it will be of continuing interest to, and of lasting significance for mathematicians and mathematically minded physicists.

## Relativity and the Nature of Spacetime

**Author**: Vesselin Petkov**Publisher:**Springer Science & Business Media**ISBN:**9783540238898**Category:**Science**Page:**293**View:**5444

What is the nature of spacetime? This book develops the answer to this question via a thorough analysis of relativistic effects and explicitly asking whether the objects involved in those effects are three-dimensional or four-dimensional.

## Electromagnetic and Optical Pulse Propagation 2

*Temporal Pulse Dynamics in Dispersive, Attenuative Media*

**Author**: Kurt E. Oughstun**Publisher:**Springer Science & Business Media**ISBN:**1441901493**Category:**Science**Page:**831**View:**1785

Electromagnetic & Optical Pulse Propagation presents a detailed, systematic treatment of the time-domain electromagnetics with application to the propagation of transient electromagnetic fields (including ultrawideband signals and ultrashort pulses) in homogeneous, isotropic media which exhibit both temporal frequency dispersion and attenuation. The development is mathematically rigorous with strict adherence to the fundamental physical principle of causality. Approximation methods are based upon mathematically well-defined asymptotic techniques that are based upon the saddle point method. A detailed description is given of the asymptotic expansions used. Meaningful exercises are given throughout the text to help the reader‘s understanding of the material, making the book a useful graduate level text in electromagnetic wave theory for both physics, electrical engineering and materials science programs. Both students and researchers alike will obtain a better understanding of time domain electromagnetics as it applies to electromagnetic radiation and wave propagation theory with applications to ground and foliage penetrating radar, medical imaging, communications, and the health and safety issues associated with ultrawideband pulsed fields. Volume 2 presents a detailed asymptotic description of plane wave pulse propagation in dielectric, conducting, and semiconducting materials as described by the classical Lorentz model of dielectric resonance, the Rocard-Powles-Debys model of orientational polarization, and the Drude model of metals. The rigorous description of the signal velocity of a pulse in a dispersive material is presented in connection with the question of superluminal pulse propagation.

## Spacetime and that Beyond

**Author**: Unnikrishnan Attupurath**Publisher:**Booktango**ISBN:**1468954660**Category:**Science**Page:**1**View:**3311

After reaching the realms of Relativity & Quantum Mechanics, science, today, is as if bouncing back on the screen created apparently by those theories. Can't modern science cross over this screen and reveal further truths veiled in nature to give new directions to mankind, which is ever engaged in its relentless pursuit for ultimate contentment and freedom? Doesn't it owe the scientists to kindle new lights of awareness by such enquiries in the modem man, now so obsessed, confused, feared and ruined, as evident from recent mental and intellectual catastrophes witnessed in this super-computer era of ours? The deliberations in this text, first published in December, 1987, are oriented towards a breakthrough in modem scientific thought by analysing the theories hitherto available culminating in relativity and quantum mechanics. It rather tries to interpret and extend the ideas inherent in these theories to the entire field of human experiences and bring forth the ultimate essence of existence. In this exercise, experience, recognized as the fundamental basis of any scientific analysis, is given pivotal importance. The outcome of these deliberations brings forth a different orientation to the relationship between the experiencer- the individual -and the universe he is experiencing. It gives a new dimension to his ultimate goal and his assessment with regard to other fellow beings-human as well as subhuman -around, which can influence him to rearrange his interactions with nature so that both the individual as well as nature can evolve simultaneously in harmony. An enlarged version of these deliberations, that hopefully will help to study them further in detail, is under preparation.

## Gravitation and Spacetime

**Author**: Hans C. Ohanian,Remo Ruffini**Publisher:**Cambridge University Press**ISBN:**1107012945**Category:**Science**Page:**528**View:**1174

## Spacetime and Singularities

*An Introduction*

**Author**: Gregory L. Naber**Publisher:**Cambridge University Press**ISBN:**9780521336123**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**178**View:**7492

Naber provides an elementary introduction to the geometrical methods and notions used in special and general relativity. Particular emphasis is placed on the ideas concerned with the structure of space-time and that play a role in the Penrose-Hawking singularity theorems. The author's primary purpose is to give a rigorous proof of the simplest of these theorems, by the one that is representative of the whole. He provides exercises and examples at the end of each chapter. No previous exposure either to relativity theory of differential geometry is required of the reader, as necessary concepts are developed when needed, though some restrictions ae imposed on the types of space considered.

## The Chemistry of Matter Waves

**Author**: Jan C.A. Boeyens**Publisher:**Springer Science & Business Media**ISBN:**9400775784**Category:**Science**Page:**243**View:**9164

The quantum and relativity theories of physics are considered to underpin all of science in an absolute sense. This monograph argues against this proposition primarily on the basis of the two theories' incompatibility and of some untenable philosophical implications of the quantum model. Elementary matter is assumed in both theories to occur as zero-dimensional point particles. In relativity theory this requires the space-like region of the underlying Minkowski space-time to be rejected as unphysical, despite its precise mathematical characterization. In quantum theory it leads to an incomprehensible interpretation of the wave nature of matter in terms of a probability function and the equally obscure concept of wave-particle duality. The most worrisome aspect about quantum mechanics as a theory of chemistry is its total inability, despite unsubstantiated claims to the contrary, to account for the fundamental concepts of electron spin, molecular structure, and the periodic table of the elements. A remedy of all these defects by reformulation of both theories as nonlinear wave models in four-dimensional space-time is described.

## Space, Time and Gravitation

*An Outline of the General Relativity Theory*

**Author**: Arthur S. Eddington,Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington**Publisher:**Cambridge University Press**ISBN:**9780521337090**Category:**Science**Page:**218**View:**6085

This classic book is essential reading for all those interested in the development of modern physics. Sir Arthur Eddington's account of the general theory of relativity, 'without,' as he says in his preface, 'introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics or philosophy', was first published in the exciting days of 1920 soon after the first objective tests of the theory had demonstrated its validity. The book was at once received with acclamation by reviewers and remains today one of the simplest and most straightforward accounts in print. The reviewer in the Athenaeum described it as 'a masterly book. The arrangement, the vigour and ease of the reasoning, the felicity of illustration, the clear, flexible prose and (we must mention it) the wit, make this book one of the most adequate and engaging attempts at the non-technical exposition of a scientific theory that it has ever been our good fortune to encounter.' This reissue includes a foreword by Sir Hermann Bondi, FRS, giving a brief appraisal of the book, and placing it in its historical and scientific context.

## Understanding Geometric Algebra for Electromagnetic Theory

**Author**: John W. Arthur**Publisher:**John Wiley & Sons**ISBN:**1118078535**Category:**Science**Page:**320**View:**9399

This book aims to disseminate geometric algebra as a straightforward mathematical tool set for working with and understanding classical electromagnetic theory. It's target readership is anyone who has some knowledge of electromagnetic theory, predominantly ordinary scientists and engineers who use it in the course of their work, or postgraduate students and senior undergraduates who are seeking to broaden their knowledge and increase their understanding of the subject. It is assumed that the reader is not a mathematical specialist and is neither familiar with geometric algebra or its application to electromagnetic theory. The modern approach, geometric algebra, is the mathematical tool set we should all have started out with and once the reader has a grasp of the subject, he or she cannot fail to realize that traditional vector analysis is really awkward and even misleading by comparison.
