The Physics of Stargates: Parallel Universes, Time Travel, and the Enigma of Wormhole Physics

Capa
Eridanus Press, 2010 - 384 páginas
An accessible introduction to modern physics that focuses on wormholes and discusses among other topics their structure, stability, dynamics, operation as time machines, utility as portals to parallel universes, and their implications for the distant future of humanity. Read the wormhole FAQ and the bullet point "principles" scattered throughout to quickly absorb the basics of wormhole physics. Go back and read the interstitial material for greater depth. Written by a physicist with years of experience in gently introducing physics to the mathematically challenged, it also covers the history of wormhole physics and delineates the unsolved problems at the forefront of research.

Sobre o autor (2010)

Enrico Rodrigo is a Caltech physics graduate, who obtained his doctorate in physics at the University of Texas at Austin studying under wormhole pioneer John Wheeler. He taught physics for several years at Arizona State University and at the University of California. His most recently published research has explored wormholes in the context of braneworlds.
