Gravity IN Relativistic Particle Theory: A Physical Foundation for the Life Sciences By Harold Hamilton Ph.D.
Paperback: $39.99
Ships in 3-5 business days.
Current particle theory, the Standard Model, is faced with very deep problems: quarks, electrons, positrinos and bosons have no physical size and no discrete mass-energy and yet are said to have... More > dynamic energetic properties, and consequently the Model makes no physical connection with spacetime and gravity in the evolving Universe. This book develops a rigorous nonequilibrium thermodynamic theory, and constructs a relativistic particle theory that endows such particles with internal structure and mass-energy. That theory explains the dynamics of evolving systems in the quantum, cosmological and living states, in which the Universe begins in a quiescent quantum state, transforms into a scalar expanding cosmos and accounts for the existence of stereospecific L- amino acids in all living cells. Hamilton develops a rational quantum theory in which photons constitute the most fundamental particles in the Universe, enabling precise description of the dynamics of atomic and molecular systems.< Less
Homotopy Type Theory (hardcover) By Univalent Foundations Project
Hardcover: $21.83
Ships in 6-8 business days.
Homotopy type theory is a new branch of mathematics that combines aspects of several different fields in a surprising way. It is based on a recently discovered connection between homotopy theory and... More > type theory. It touches on topics as seemingly distant as the homotopy groups of spheres, the algorithms for type checking, and the definition of weak ∞-groupoids. Homotopy type theory offers a new “univalent” foundation of mathematics, in which a central role is played by Voevodsky’s univalence axiom and higher inductive types. The present book is intended as a first systematic exposition of the basics of univalent foundations, and a collection of examples of this new style of reasoning — but without requiring the reader to know or learn any formal logic, or to use any computer proof assistant. We believe that univalent foundations will eventually become a viable alternative to set theory as the “implicit foundation” for the unformalized mathematics done by most mathematicians.< Less
