    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.

    Before the Big Bang: The Origin of Our Universe from the Multiverse

    Rs. 2,890.00
    or 3 X Rs.963.33 with

    Laura Mersini-Houghton

     

    Laura Mersini-Houghton’s Before the Big Bang provides a fascinating account of the background and underlying motives for her intriguing proposal for the physical principles that may have governed the explosive origin of our universe — Roger Penrose, University of Oxford, Nobel laureate, and author of Cycles of Time and The Road to Reality

     

    What if our universe, vast though it may be, is but an infinitesimal fragment of reality? What would this ‘multiverse’ be like? What would be the implications? And how could we possibly test the idea? There is no better guide to the bizarre, and sometimes paradoxical, cosmic super-realm than Laura Mersini-Houghton, who has devoted her research to seeking the tell-tale signs in the sky hinting that our universe is indeed not alone — Paul Davies, Arizona State University and author of What’s Eating the Universe? And other cosmic questions

     

    From one of the world’s most renowned cosmologists, Before the Big Bang offers insights into the Big Bang and, beyond it, into the majestic world of a quantum multiverse. The tale of Laura Mersini-Houghton’s journey of discovery, interlaced with her personal stories of growing up in communist Albania and breaking free of its confines, makes for a fascinating read — Stephon Alexander, Brown University, and author of Fear of a Black Universe and The Jazz of Physics

     

    A fascinating and unusual hybrid of pop science and memoir… The author’s explanation of such exotic ideas is vivid and good-humoured, and much enlivened by tableaux from her education in Albania — Stephen Poole ― Daily Telegraph, 5*

     

    A revolutionary new account of our universe’s creation—and a breathtaking exploration of the landscape from which we sprang—from one of the world’s most celebrated cosmologists

     

    What came before the Big Bang, and what exists outside of the universe it created? Until recently, scientists could only guess at what lay past the edge of space-time. However, as pioneering theoretical physicist Laura Mersini-Houghton explains, new scientific tools are now giving us the ability to peer beyond the limits of our universe and to test our theories about what is there. And what we are finding is upending everything we thought we knew about the cosmos and our place in it.

     

    Mersini-Houghton is no stranger to boundaries—or to pushing through them. As a child growing up in Communist Albania, she discovered a universe beyond her walled-off world through the study of math and science, and through music. As a female cosmologist in a male-dominated field, she transcended the limits that society and her profession tried to place on her. And as a trailblazing researcher, she helped to revolutionize the study of our universe by revealing that, far from living in a cosmic Albania, with a world that ends at its borders, we are part of a larger family of universes—a multiverse—that holds wonders we are only beginning to unlock. Mersini-Houghton’s groundbreaking research suggests that we sit in a quantum landscape whose peaks and valleys hide a multitude of other universes, and even hold the secret to the origins of existence itself. Recent evidence has revealed the signatures of such sibling universes in our own night sky, confirming Mersini-Houghton’s theoretical work and offering humbling evidence that our universe is just one member of an unending cosmic family.

     

    The incredible scientific saga of one woman’s mind-expanding journey through the multiverse, Before the Big Bang will reshape our understanding of humanity’s place in the unfathomable vastness of the cosmos.
