out of 5 stars Revolutions in Twentieth-Century Physics - The book as I realize. Reviewed in India on June 7, Verified Purchase. I wanted it to be more exciting. As it appears it is very sketchy. May be it looks like this to a Physics person. But always Professor Griffiths' books are very exciting to by: 4. Revolutions in Physics by Barry M. Casper, Richard J.

The "scientific method"? --The problem of celestial heavens around man ; Stars that wander ; The earth becomes a planet --The problem of terrestrial motion.A language of motion ; The fall of Aristotle ; Free fall on a moving earth --The Newtonian synthesis. The book discusses quarks and leptons, antiparticles and Feynman diagrams, curved space-time, the Big Bang and the expanding Universe. Suitable for undergraduate students in non-science as well as science subjects, it uses problems and worked examples to help readers develop an understanding of what recent advances in physics actually mean.
The book also presents a mini-course in quantum and nuclear physics in an accessible, fast-paced narrative that invokes all the dizzying passion of Fermis brilliant discoveries.

Revolutions in Physics is a sweeping history of the development of concepts of space, time, mass and force through the ages; it then culminates in a robust and courageous exploration of the emergent view that space-time is actually a highly potent energetic medium, capable of supporting entirely new classes of energy, propulsion, communications and health sciences technologies. When I received Revolutions in Twentieth-Century Physics, I thought I was getting one of those non-fiction science books that function as a historical account of physics in the 20th century. I thought it was going to be one of those books targeted at your average American for whom the science and numbers may not mean a lot, but the accounts Reviews: Revolutions in Twentieth-Century Physics book.

For ex. he discusses the 'bootstrap' idea of the 60s for unifying the nuclear forces, which fell through when the quark theory gained ground, from the point of view of the time when it appeared: to those scientists working on it at the time, it could very well have Cited by:
