Sidereus Nuncius by Galileo Galilei, Albert Van Helden

By Galileo Galilei, Albert Van Helden

;Sidereus Nuncius КНИГИ ; ИСТОРИЯ Автор:Galileo Galileo Название: Sidereus Nuncius Издательство: Venice Год: 1610 Формат: PDF Размер: 109 МБ Для сайта: www.mirknig.comИсторики науки почти единодушно считают, что Галилей если не изобрел, то усовершенствовал телескоп. Он изготовил трубу с увеличением в 30 раз и в августе 1609 продемонстрировал ее сенату Венеции. С помощью своей трубы Галилей начал наблюдение ночного неба. Результаты его наблюдений и составили эту книгу. Мысли, высказанные Галилеем в Звездном вестнике, никак не вписывались в рамки аристотелевского мировоззрения. Они совпадали со взглядами Коперника и Бруно. Так, Галилей считал Луну сходной по своей природе с Землей, а с точки зрения Аристотеля (и церкви) не могло быть и речи о подобии «земного» и «небесного». Так начались его расхождения со святой Инквизицией...Раритет - первоиздание звездных наблюдений Галилея. Была издана огромным по тем временам тиражом - 550 экземпляров, и практически сразу была издана пиратская копия этого произведения с рисунками, не слишком искусно исполненными в технике ксилографии. Книга оцифрована известной компанией 8vo, специализирующейся на высококачественном копировании старинных книг и манускриптов.0

Quantum gravitation : the Feynman path integral approach by Herbert W. Hamber

By Herbert W. Hamber

"Quantum Gravitation" techniques the topic from the perspective of Feynman course integrals, which supply a obviously covariant process within which primary quantum points of the idea resembling radiative corrections and the renormalization workforce may be systematically and regularly addressed. it really is proven that the trail fundamental procedure is acceptable for either perturbative in addition to non-perturbative reviews, and is already recognized to supply a framework for the theoretical research of non-Abelian gauge theories, the root for 3 of the 4 identified primary forces in nature. The booklet therefore offers a coherent define of the current prestige of the speculation gravity in keeping with Feynman’s formula, with an emphasis on quantitative results.

Topics are equipped in this kind of means that the correspondence to related tools and ends up in smooth gauge theories turns into obvious. Covariant perturbation thought are built utilizing the whole equipment of Feynman principles, gauge solving, history equipment and ghosts. The renormalization crew for gravity and the lifestyles of non-trivial ultraviolet fastened issues are investigated, stressing an in depth correspondence with good understood statistical box conception versions. the ultimate bankruptcy addresses modern concerns in quantum cosmology reminiscent of scale based gravitational constants and quantum results within the early universe.

Celestial Sleuth: Using Astronomy to Solve Mysteries in Art, by Donald W. Olson

By Donald W. Olson

For a normal viewers attracted to fixing mysteries in paintings, background, and literature utilizing the tools of technological know-how, 'forensic astronomy' is an exhilarating new box of exploration. Astronomical calculations are the root of the reviews, that have the good thing about bringing to readers either evocative photographs and a greater figuring out of the skies.

Weather evidence, volcano stories, topography, tides, historic letters and diaries, recognized work, army documents, and the pleasant counsel of specialists in comparable fields upload type, intensity, and curiosity to the paintings. the selected issues are chosen for his or her vast public acceptance and intrigue, regarding artists reminiscent of Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Edvard Munch, and Ansel Adams; old occasions reminiscent of the conflict of Marathon, the demise of Julius Caesar, the yankee Revolution, and global battle II; and literary authors similar to Chaucer, Shakespeare, Joyce, and Mary Shelley. This booklet units out to reply to those mysteries indicated with the potential and services of astronomy, starting the door to a richer adventure of human tradition and its dating with nature.

Each topic is punctiliously analyzed. as an instance utilizing the research of sky work via Vincent van Gogh, the analytical technique would come with:
- laptop calculations of ancient skies above France within the nineteenth century
- discovering and quoting the clues present in translations of unique letters by means of Van Gogh
- making website visits to France to figure out the fitting destinations whilst Van Gogh organize his easel and what celestial items are depicted.

For each one ancient occasion inspired through astronomy, there will be a unique form of secret to be solved. to illustrate:
- How can the section of the Moon and time of moonrise aid to provide an explanation for a turning element of the yankee Civil battle - the deadly wounding of Stonewall Jackson at Chancellorsville in 1863?

For each one literary connection with astronomy, it was resolute which celestial gadgets have been being defined and making an issue that the writer is describing a precise occasion. for instance, what was once the date of the moonlit scene while Mary Shelley first had the assumption for her novel “Frankenstein?”

These and extra enjoyable riddles will enchant and enjoyment the fan of artwork and astronomy.

Illustrated Dictionary of Practical Astronomy by C. R. Kitchin

By C. R. Kitchin

The function of this publication is two-fold. first of all to supply a convenient quickly resource of ref­ erence of the phrases, ideas, tools, formulation, methods, and so on. , for training observers, if it is their first glance through an individual else's small telescope, or whether or not they have spent a long time development their very own tools, watching with them and are usually generating effects to rival these of the pros. it isn't largely aimed toward specialist observers, yet with a purpose to be sufficiently compre­ hensive for its meant viewers, many entries were integrated in order to be correct at that point. particularly even though, the extra esoteric components of spectroscopy haven't been integrated. References to express observatories are incorporated if their instrumentation contains optical telescopes over 1 m in diameter or radio dishes over 20 m. person entries for telescopes of four m or over are integrated, and for the bigger radio tools, plus different telescopes which may be of curiosity for ancient or different purposes (for instance the 1m Yerkes refractor). Spacecraft have usually now not been integrated (apart from the Hubble area telescope) simply because their brief operating lives suggest that almost all present spacecraft will now not be working by the point that this e-book is released. additionally the names of spacecraft are often replaced after release making it tricky to spot which undertaking is which. References to advertisement corporations, and to a few largely to be had advertisement items were includ­ ed, yet an proceeding buyer must always receive up to date information.
