The Equivalence Of Gravitational Field And Time By Ilija Barukcic
eBook (PDF): $3.00
Abstract. At least since the time of Albert Einstein there have been numerous attempts to unify gravitation and electromagnetism but without a real breakthrough or a solution in sight. According to... More > Einstein, gravitation is rather a manifestation of curved space and time caused by the presence of matter and energy and not due to a force while electromagnetism acts between charges. The strong nuclear force, the weak nuclear force and the electromagnetic force are widely understood as manifestations of a single and more fundamental force. These basic forces of quantum mechanics are combined with gravity to create a theory of quantum gravity, to unify general relativity and quantum mechanics. A quantum theory of gravitation is still not available, the attempts to unify gravitation with the other known fundamental forces of nature are still unsuccessful. This paper is about to make the prove that time is equivalent to the gravitational field and vice versa. PACS numbers: 04.00.00, 03.00.00, 12.10.-g< Less
Why God Doesn't Exist By Bill Gaede

WGDE strives to show that there is no God, no miracle, no supernatural explanation for the workings of the Universe as claimed by General Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, String Theory, and traditional... More > religion. WGDE holds that Big Bang is a creationist theory in disguise, nothing more than a veiled way of selling God. If you are open to new ideas and want to have a fresh look at science, specifically the physical workings of light, gravity, electricity, magnetism, etc., WGDE provides you with a rational alternative. You will never listen to a mainstream mathematical physicist again. A book designed and written for the layman. Over 300 illustrations. More at: http://www.youstupidrelativist.com< Less

Homotopy Type Theory (paperback) By Univalent Foundations Project

Prints in 3-5 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
