Black Holes and Time Warps: Einstein's Outrageous Legacy (Commonwealth Fund Book Program) by Kip S. Thorne and Stephen Hawking | out of 5 stars The Little Book of Black Holes is well written, well organized, and enjoyable to read."—Gary Horowitz, University of California, Santa Barbara "This is a really excellent, beautifully written book.

I am not aware of any other book that even approaches a comparably succinct exposition of the physics of black holes."—Sean Hartnoll, Stanford.

This book is about black holes, one of the most intriguing objects of modern theoretical physics and astrophysics. For many years, black holes have been considered as interesting solutions of the Theory of General Relativity with a number of amusing mathematical by: The Little Book of Black Holes is a great review of what is known and not known about black holes.

Be advised though there are graphs and equations in this book and while they don't work through any math, the authors do talk about what the equations mean. It /5.

This article is divided into three parts. First, a systematic derivation of the Hawking radiation is given in three different ways. The information loss problem is then discussed in great detail. The last part contains a concise discussion of black hole thermodynamics.

This article was published as chapter $6$ of the IOP book "Lectures on General Relativity, Cosmology and Author: Badis Ydri. Don't let the name fool you: a black hole is anything but empty space. Rather, it is a great amount of matter packed into a very small area - think of a star ten times more massive than the Sun squeezed into a sphere approximately the diameter of New York City.

The result is a gravitational field so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape. a black hole, and at the critical surface (at RS), it is slowed down infinitely.

•Light emitted close to the critical surface is severely red-shifted (the frequency is lower) and at the critical surface, the redshift is infinite. Black Holes red-shifted red-shifted into oblivion From inside this region no information can escape.

One of the most exciting predictions of Einstein's theory of gravitationisthat there may exist 'black holes': putative objects whose gravitational fields are so strong that no physical bodies and signals can break free of their pull and escape.

Leonard Susskind (/ ˈ s ʌ s k ɪ n d /; born ) is an American physicist, who is a professor of theoretical physics at Stanford University, and founding director of the Stanford Institute for Theoretical research interests include string theory, quantum field theory, quantum statistical mechanics and quantum cosmology.

He is a member of the US National Academy Doctoral advisor: Peter A. Carruthers. This book explores, explains and debunks some common misconceptions about quantum. physics, particle physics, space-time, and Multiverse cosmology.

It seeks to separate. science from pseudoscience. The material is presented in layperson-friendly language, followed by additional technical. sections which explain basic equations and principles. The history of black holes is an evolution both science and imagination. Although the physicist, who coined the term ‘black hole’, was John A.

Wheeler in the s, A. Einstein first predicted the existence of black holes in with his theory of General many years, black holes have been considered as a pure mathematical construction in General. This book is a thorough and up‐to‐date introduction to black hole physics.

It provides a modern and unified overview of all their aspects, physical, mathematical, astrophysical, classical, and quantum. Black holes are the most intriguing objects in the Universe. For many years they have been considered just as interesting solutions of the General Relativity with a number of.

For a black hole of 8 solar masses, for instance, the value of r at which tides become fatal is about km, and the Schwarzschild radius is just 24 km. im reading a book titled black holes and time warps by kip s.

Energy and momentum in flat spacetime; the metric; curvature of spacetime near rotating and nonrotating centers of attraction; trajectories and orbits of particles and light. A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes is a popular-science book on cosmology (the study of the origin and evolution of the universe) by British physicist Stephen Hawking.

It was first published in Hawking wrote the book for readers who have no prior knowledge of the universe and people who are just interested in learning something : Stephen Hawking. The book dives into gravity, black holes, the Big Bang, the nature of time and the search for a grand unifying theory that ties it all together.

In addition to those specific features of black holes that are important for the interpretation of their possible astrophysical manifestations, the theory has revealed a nurober of unexpected characteristics of physical interactions involving black holes. Based on present knowledge of particle physics, the main components of Hawking radiation, for all but the most microscopic black holes, are expected to be photons and gravitons, which would compete on roughly equal terms, depending on the angular momentum of the black hole.

Written by foremost experts, this short book gives a clear description of the physics of quantum black holes. The reader will learn about quantum black holes in four and higher dimensions, primordial black holes, the production of black holes in high energy particle collisions, Hawking radiation, black holes in models of low scale quantum gravity and quantum gravitational.

Her latest, Introduction to General Relativity, Black Holes, and Cosmology, consists of two parts: “Fundamentals” and “Advanced Topics.”Unlike other areas of physics, general relativity needs the mathematics of differential geometry, so Choquet-Bruhat starts with that subject and explains manifolds, tensor fields, metrics, connections, and : David Garfinkle.

Over the last decade the physics of black holes has been revolutionized by developments that grew out of Jacob Bekenstein's realization that black holes have entropy.

Stephen Hawking raised profound issues concerning the loss of information in black hole evaporation and the consistency of quantum mechanics in a world with gravity/5(51).

Book Description: Dive into a mind-bending exploration of the physics of black holes. Black holes, predicted by Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity more than a century ago, have long intrigued scientists and the public with their bizarre and fantastical properties. A new book, well-done and with the same approach as the present course.

Interesting spacetime metrics, such as the Schwarzschild solution relevant in the solar system and black holes, are first explored, and only later derived as solutions to Einstein’s equation.

B.F. Schutz, A First Course in General Relativity (Cambridge, ). The book: The Little Book of Black Holes takes readers deep into the hearts of black holes, offering clear insights into the strange but wonderful physics that explains them, examining black holes both as astrophysical objects in space and as theoretical “laboratories” where physicists can test their understanding of gravitational, quantum, and thermal physics.

Gravity Black Holes and the Very Early Universe Book Summary: Here it is, in a nutshell: the history of one genius’s most crucial work – discoveries that were to change the face of modern physics.

In the early s, Albert Einstein formulated two theories that would forever change the landscape of physics: the Special Theory of Relativity and the General Theory of Relativity. The problem is 40 years of paradoxes as scientists try to understand how black holes seem to break two rules of physics.

Last week. A black hole is a volume from which matter cannot escape. More formally, the coordinate speed of light at the event horizon - the boundary of a black hole - is zero, as measured by a sufficiently separated observer.

Written by foremost experts, this short book gives a clear description of the physics of quantum black holes. The reader will learn about quantum black holes in four and higher dimensions, primordial black holes, the production of black holes in high energy particle collisions, Hawking radiation, black holes in models of low scale quantum gravity and quantum Author: Xavier Calmet.

This Special Issue focuses on black holes as probed for new physics. They might be used at the experimental level: from gravitational waves to direct astronomy. Black holes are now being intensively observed, and could reveal unexpected phenomena. This might also be the case at the purely theoretical level: from the recovery of the Bekenstein.Well I would never suggest you to hop with a Stephen Hawking book in the very beginning!
