This book provides an accessible introduction to loop quantum gravity and some of its applications, at a level suitable for undergraduate students and others with only a minimal knowledge of college level physics. In particular it is not assumed that the reader is familiar with general relativity and only minimally familiar with quantum mechanics and Hamiltonian mechanics. Most chapters end with problems that elaborate on the text, and aid learning. Applications such as loop quantum cosmology, black hole entropy and spin foams are briefly covered. The text is ideally suited for an undergraduate course in the senior year of a physics major. It can also be used to introduce undergraduates to general relativity and quantum field theory as part of a 'special topics' type of course.

Comment se fait-il que certaines personnes arrivent à rester mince toute leur vie, tandis que d'autres traînent constamment des kilos superflus, qu'elles n'arrivent pas à perdre ? Est-ce là une injustice contre laquelle on ne peut rien ? Être mince ou en surpoids, ou entre les deux, est-ce une destinée ? Non, non, mille fois non. Vous pouvez avoir la silhouette que vous avez choisie. Pour cela, vous devez savoir comment le poids fonctionne. Le Secret du Poids vous offre cette connaissance. Cette méthode explique concrètement comment garder la ligne en mangeant ce que l'on veut. Elle repose sur des données alimentaires qui existent depuis toujours. Ces données sont ensuite englobées dans une vision de l'alimentation tout à fait particulière : gaie, simple, permissive et étonnante. Entrez dans un concept que j'ai façonné au cours des années ; il a enchanté mes amies les plus proches, qui, grâce à cette méthode, n'ont plus jamais connu de problèmes de poids et se sentent enfin libres !

After the first demonstration of Bose Einstein condensation in the solid state in 2006 and the establishment of exciton polariton condensates in the wider scientific community, an intense interest has been attracted by this phenomenon at both theoretical and experimental level. This book presents in detail the different aspects of fundamental importance related to the polariton condensation. After an overview of the basic concepts for excitons, polaritons and condensates in and out of equilibrium, the book then considers a variety of experimental methods used in their study. A detailed theoretical analysis that supports observed experimental findings is also provided.

In this unconventional and stimulating primer, world-class physicist Leonard Susskind and citizen-scientist George Hrabovsky combine forces to provide a brilliant first course in modern physics. Unlike most popular physics books - which give readers a taste of what physicists know but not what they actually do - Susskind and Hrabovsky teach the skills you need to do physics yourself. Combining crystal-clear explanations of the laws of the universe with basic exercises, the authors cover the minimum - the theoretical minimum of the title - that readers need to master in order to study more advanced topics. In a lucid, engaging style, they introduce all the key concepts, from classical mechanics to general relativity to quantum theory. Instead of shying away from the equations and maths that are essential to any understanding of physics, The Theoretical Minimum provides a toolkit that you won't find in any other popular science book.

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. Advanced Linux Programming is divided into two parts. The first covers generic UNIX system services, but with a particular eye towards Linux specific information. This portion of the book will be of use even to advanced programmers who have worked with other Linux systems since it will cover Linux specific details and differences. For programmers without UNIX experience, it will be even more valuable. The second section covers material that is entirely Linux specific. These are truly advanced topics, and are the techniques that the gurus use to build great applications. While this book will focus mostly on the Application Programming Interface (API) provided by the Linux kernel and the C library, a preliminary introduction to the development tools available will allow all who purchase the book to make immediate use of Linux.

Thirty years after its publication, The Death and Life of Great American Cities was described by The New York Times as "perhaps the most influential single work in the history of town planning....[It] can also be seen in a much larger context. It is first of all a work of literature; the descriptions of street life as a kind of ballet and the bitingly satiric account of traditional planning theory can still be read for pleasure even by those who long ago absorbed and appropriated the book's arguments." Jane Jacobs, an editor and writer on architecture in New York City in the early sixties, argued that urban diversity and vitality were being destroyed by powerful architects and city planners. Rigorous, sane, and delightfully epigrammatic, Jacobs's small masterpiece is a blueprint for the humanistic management of cities. It is sensible, knowledgeable, readable, indispensable. The author has written a new foreword for this Modern Library edition.
