At the Frontier of Spacetime: Scalar-Tensor Theory, Bells by Torsten Asselmeyer-Maluga

By Torsten Asselmeyer-Maluga

In this e-book, best theorists current new contributions and reports addressing longstanding demanding situations and ongoing growth in spacetime physics.

In the anniversary yr of Einstein's normal conception of Relativity, built a hundred years in the past, this assortment displays the next and carrying on with fruitful improvement of spacetime theories. the amount is released in honour of Carl Brans at the get together of his eightieth birthday. Carl H. Brans, who additionally contributes individually, is an artistic and self sufficient researcher and one of many founders of the scalar-tensor concept, often referred to as Jordan-Brans-Dicke idea. within the current ebook, a lot area is dedicated to scalar-tensor theories.

Since the start of the Nineteen Nineties, Brans has labored on new versions of spacetime, jointly referred to as unique smoothness, a box mostly verified by way of him. during this Festschrift, one unearths a superb and specific number of articles approximately unique smoothness. additionally featured are Bell's inequality and Mach's principle.

Personal thoughts and historic facets around off the collection.
