Subtlety in Relativity

1st Edition

Sanjay Moreshwar Wagh
December 13, 2017

Subtlety in Relativity is the only book that has been written after the author’s discovery of a new way in which wave phenomena occur—the emission origin of waves. This drastically changes most issues of the old debate over the world being either deterministic or probabilistic. The emission origin...

Semiconductor X-Ray Detectors

1st Edition

B. G. Lowe, R. A. Sareen
November 20, 2017

Identifying and measuring the elemental x-rays released when materials are examined with particles (electrons, protons, alpha particles, etc.) or photons (x-rays and gamma rays) is still considered to be the primary analytical technique for routine and non-destructive materials analysis. The...


1st Edition

Nicola Vittorio
November 14, 2017

Modern cosmology has changed significantly over the years, from the discovery to the precision measurement era. The data now available provide a wealth of information, mostly consistent with a model where dark matter and dark energy are in a rough proportion of 3:7. The time is right for a fresh...
