    The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos

    Rs. 2,990.00
    or 3 X Rs.996.67 with

    Brian Greene

     

    Brian Greene’s book The Hidden Reality is a tour de force of one of the most controversial areas of modern science – the possibility that there are multiple universes… Greene’s ability as a populariser has matured with each new publication and this latest offering is his best yet — Alastair Gunn ― Sky at Night

     

    Exciting and rewarding … captures and engages the imagination … Greene has a gift for elucidating big ideas ― New York Times

     

    If extraterrestrials landed tomorrow and demanded to know what the human mind is capable of accomplishing, we could do worse than to hand them a copy of this book ― New York Times Book Review

     

    The book serves well as an introduction to the multiverse and will open up many people’s eyes — John Gribbin

     

    Every chapter opens level after level of previously unimaginable, mind-expanding realities — Oliver Sacks

     

    The bestselling author of The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos tackles perhaps the most mind-bending question in modern physics and cosmology: Is our universe the only universe?

     

    There was a time when “universe” meant all there is. Everything. Yet, a number of theories are converging on the possibility that our universe may be but one among many parallel universes populating a vast multiverse. Here, Briane Greene, one of our foremost physicists and science writers, takes us on a breathtaking journey to a multiverse comprising an endless series of big bangs, a multiverse with duplicates of every one of us, a multiverse populated by vast sheets of spacetime, a multiverse in which all we consider real are holographic illusions, and even a multiverse made purely of math–and reveals the reality hidden within each.

     

    Using his trademark wit and precision, Greene presents a thrilling survey of cutting-edge physics and confronts the inevitable question: How can fundamental science progress if great swaths of reality lie beyond our reach? The Hidden Reality is a remarkable adventure through a world more vast and strange than anything we could have imagined.

    General Relativity The Theoretical Minimum: What you Need to Know to Start Doing Physics

    Rs. 5,890.00
    or 3 X Rs.1,963.33 with

    Leonard Susskind and Andre Cabannes

     

     The latest volume in The New York Times bestselling physics series explains Einstein’s masterpiece: the general theory of relativity

     

    He taught us classical mechanics, quantum mechanics and special relativity. Now, physicist Leonard Susskind, assisted by a new collaborator, André Cabannes, returns to tackle Einstein’s general theory of relativity. Starting from the equivalence principle and covering the necessary mathematics of Riemannian spaces and tensor calculus, Susskind and Cabannes explain the link between gravity and geometry. They delve into black holes, establish Einstein field equations and solve them to describe gravity waves. The authors provide vivid explanations that, to borrow a phrase from Einstein himself, are as simple as possible (but no simpler).

     

     An approachable yet rigorous introduction to one of the most important topics in physics, General Relativity is a must-read for anyone who wants a deeper knowledge of the universe’s real structure.

    The Ascent of Information: How Data Rules the World

    Rs. 4,190.00
    or 3 X Rs.1,396.67 with

    Caleb Scharf

     

    “Full of fascinating insights drawn from an impressive range of disciplines, The Ascent of Information casts the familiar and the foreign in a dramatic new light.” —Brian Greene, author of The Elegant Universe

     

    Your information has a life of its own, and its using you to get what it wants.

     

    One of the most peculiar and possibly unique features of humans is the vast amount of information we carry outside our biological selves. But in our rush to build the infrastructure for the 20 quintillion bits we create every day, we’ve failed to ask exactly why we’re expending ever-increasing amounts of energy, resources, and human effort to maintain all this data.

     

    Drawing on deep ideas and frontier thinking in evolutionary biology, computer science, information theory, and astrobiology, Caleb Scharf argues that information is, in a very real sense, alive. All the data we create—all of our emails, tweets, selfies, A.I.-generated text and funny cat videos—amounts to an aggregate lifeform. It has goals and needs. It can control our behavior and influence our well-being. And it’s an organism that has evolved right alongside us.

     

    This symbiotic relationship with information offers a startling new lens for looking at the world. Data isn’t just something we produce; it’s the reason we exist. This powerful idea has the potential to upend the way we think about our technology, our role as humans, and the fundamental nature of life.

     

    The Ascent of Information offers a humbling vision of a universe built of and for information. Scharf explores how our relationship with data will affect our ongoing evolution as a species. Understanding this relationship will be crucial to preventing our data from becoming more of a burden than an asset, and to preserving the possibility of a human future.
