The history of physics: a very short introduction; First edition
Oxford : Oxford University Press, Very Short Introductions 549, XVI, 175 Seiten : Illustrationen ()
"How does the physics we know today-- a highly professionalized enterprise, inextricably linked to government and industry-- link back to its origins as a liberal art in ancient Greece? What is the path that leads from the old philosophy of nature and its concern with humankind's place in the universe to modern massive international projects that hunt down fundamental particles and industrial laboratories that manufacture marvels? John Heilbron's fascinating history of physics introduces us to Islamic astronomers and mathematicians, calculating the size of the earth whilst their caliphs conquered much of it; to medieval scholar-theologians investigating light; to Galileo, Copernicus, Kepler, and Newton, measuring, and trying to explain, the universe. We visit the 'House of Wisdom' in 9th-century Baghdad; Europe's first universities; the courts of the Renaissance; the Scientific Revolution and the academies of the 18th century; the increasingly specialized world of 20th and 21st century science [...]

The standard model in a nutshell
Princeton : Princeton Univ. Pr., In a nutshell , 295 p ()
A concise and authoritative introduction to one of the central theories of modern physics. For a theory as genuinely elegant as the Standard Model -the current framework describing elementary particles and their forces - it can sometimes appear to students to be little more than a complicated collection of particles and ranked list of interactions [...]
