"Vom Universum zu den Elementarteilchen" par Ulrich Ellwanger, édité chez Springer

Ulrich Ellwanger, professeur à l’Université Paris-Sud 11 et chercheur au Laboratoire de Physique Théorique d’Orsay, vient de publier un livre chez Springer : "Vom Universum zu den Elementarteilchen".

From the Universe to the Elementary Particles : A first introduction to cosmology and the fundamental interactions

The book contains elementary introductions to the theories of special and general relativity, and also classical and quantum field theory. The essential aspects of these concepts are understood with the help of simple calculations ; for example, the force of gravity as a consequence of the curvature of the space-time.

Also treated are the Big Bang, dark matter and dark energy, as well as the currently known interactions of elementary particles : electrodynamics, the strong and the weak interactions including the Higgs boson. Finally, the book sketches as yet speculative theories : Grand Unification Theories, Supersymmetry, String Theory and the idea of extra dimensions of space-time. Since no higher mathematical or physics expertise is required, the book is also suitable for college and university students at the beginning of their studies.
