  Physics for non-physicists. There are some remarks about the theory of black holes as well as cosmology, and the singularities that occur in these : Peter Landsberg.   A Tour of the Subatomic Zoo: A guide to particle physics is a brief and ambitious expedition into the remarkably simple ingredients of all the wonders of nature. With hardly a mathematical formula, Professor Cindy Schwarz clearly explains the language and much of the substance of elementary particle physics for the 99% of students who do not Author: Cindy Schwarz.

Particle accelerators have made an enormous impact in all fields of natural sciences, from elementary particle physics, to the imaging of proteins and the development of new pharmaceuticals. A merit of the book is who it is pitched at. It is not really for a generalist outside physics. Rather, it seems best suited for the physicist (student or not) who is not in particle physics. Non-physicists may be surprised at this, but particle physics can seem strange and forbidding even to physicists/5(3).

Get this from a library! Particle physics for non-physicists: a tour of the microcosmos. [Steven Pollock; Teaching Company.;] -- Discover how something as minute as a subatomic particle can be marvelously complex and interesting, yet rendered comprehensible, in this enjoyable presentation by the University of Colorado's. These lectures are an introduction to the ideas of particle physics, aimed at students and teachers with little or on knowledge of the subject. They form a broad basis that will be developed in more detail by the subsequent lecturers in the school. Prerequisite knowledge Basic physics: No prior knowledge of particle physics needed. For a cheap pocket sized guide see "Particle Physics - .

Would you listen to Particle Physics for Non-Physicists: A Tour of the Microcosmos again. Why. This is a wonderful lesson to the time it was recorded. At this point, eight or more years have passed and you need to listen to more recent works to.

If you are an industrial engineer, then you must know some linear algebra. If you worked through Hoffman and Kunze, you have no problem. Linear algebra is the most important requirement for quantum mechanics. So pick up JJ Sakurai Modern Quantum M.

Great Books For Non-Physicists Who Want To Understand Quantum Physics. a compact survey of the Standard Model of particle physics. This is a unique book.

It covers the entire theoretical and experimental content of particle physics. Particle physics sits at the forefront of our search for the ultimate structure of matter at the smallest scale, but in the process it has also learned to question the nature of our space and time in which they exist.

Going hand in hand with tech. Particle Physics for Non-physicists: a Tour of the Microcosmos [The Great Courses] – by Steven Pollock This two-part series explains, in easily accessible terms, the discovery of the infinitely small particles-the quarks and neutrinos, muons and bosons-that make up everything in nature, from microbes to stars.

So this is a very "math light" physics course for non-physicists, and thus for someone who is a veteran of hard SF there won't be much here in the way of new concepts - you have probably read Heinlein's Time for the Stars in which a pair of telepathic twins conduct the famous "twin experiment" with one twin staying on Earth getting old while.

We present the screenplay of a physics show on particle physics, by the Physikshow of Bonn University. The show is addressed at non-physicists aged 14+ and communicates basic concepts of particle physics including the discovery of the Higgs boson.

( views) Neutron Scattering by Waldemar Alfredo Monteiro (ed.) - InTech, Particle physics (also known as high energy physics) is a branch of physics that studies the nature of the particles that constitute matter and gh the word particle can refer to various types of very small objects (e.g.

protons, gas particles, or even household dust), particle physics usually investigates the irreducibly smallest detectable particles and the fundamental.

I've owned this book for many years now and revisit it often. It goes into excellent detail about the history of particle physics and the cast of characters but it also gives great explanations that make the complexity of the field quite the discovery of the electron to the current understandings of the Standard Model (current as of the date of publication), the Cited by: Click to read more about Particle Physics for Non-Physicists: A Tour of the Microcosmos by Steven Pollock.
