Black Holes and Time Warps Einstein's Outrageous Legacy by Kip S Thorne and Stephen Hawking


MathSchoolinternational.com contain houndreds of Free Physics eBooks. Which cover almost all topics of Physics. To see an extisive list of Black Holes eBooks . We hope you like these books.


Elements of Algebraic Topology written by James R. Munkres , Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts This is an other great mathematics book cover the following topics.

  • Preface what this book is about and how to read it

  • Prologue A voyage among the Holes In which the reader in a science fiction tale, encounters black holes and all their strange properties as best we understand them in the 1990s

  • 1. The Relativity of Space and Time
    in which Einstein destroys Newton's conceptions of space and time as Absolute

  • 2. The Warping of Space and Time in which Hermann Minkowski unifies space and time and Einstein warps them

  • 3. Black Holes Discovered and Rejected in which Einstein's laws of warped spacetime predict black holes and Einstein rejects the prediction

  • 4. The Mystery of the White Dwarfs
    in which Eddington and Chanursekhar do battle over the death of massive stars, must they shrink when they die, creating black holes? or will quantum mechanics save them?

  • 5. Implosion Is Compulsory
    in which even the nuclear force, supposedly the strongest of all forces, cannot resist the crush of gravity.

  • 6. Implosion to What?
    in which all the armaments of theoretica physics cannot ward off the conclusion implosion produces black holes

  • 7. The Golden Age
    in which black holes are found to spin pulsate, store energy and relase it and have no hair.

  • 8. The Search
    in which a method to search for black holes in the sky is proposed and pursued and succeeds (probably)

  • 9. Serendipity
    in which astronomers are forces to conclude without any prior predictions, that black holes a millionfold heavier than the Sun inhabit the cores of galaxies (probably)

  • 10. Ripples of Curvature
    in which gravitational waves carry to Earth encoded symphonies of black holes colliding and physics devise instruments to monitor the waves and decipher their symphonies.

  • 11. What Is Reality?
    in which space time is viewed as curved on Sundays and flat on Mondays, and horizons are made from vacuum on sundays and charge on Mondays, but Sunday's experiments and Monday's experiments agree in all details

  • 12. Black Holes Evaporate
    in which a black-hole horizon is clothed in an atmosphere of radiation and hot particles that slowly evaporate, and the hole shrinks and then explodes.

  • 13. Inside Black Holes
    in which physicists, wrestling with Einstein's equation, seek the secret of what is inside a black hole, a route into another universe? a singularity with infinite tidal gravity? the end of space and time, and birth of quantum foam?

  • 14. Wormholes and Time Machines
    in which the author seeks insight into physical laws of asking can hightly advanced civilizations build wormholes through hyperspace for rapid interstellar travel and machines traveling backword in time?

  • Epilogue
    an overview of Einstein's legacy, past and future, and an update on several central characters

  • Acknowledgments
    my debts of gratitude to friends and colleagues who influenced this book.

  • Characters
    a list of characters who appear significantly at several different places in the book

  • Chronology
    a chronology of events, insights and discoveries

  • Glossary
    definitions of exotic terms

  • Notes
    what makes me confident of what I say?
