Maurizio Gasperini

Terms such as "expanding Universe", "big bang", and "initial singularity", are nowadays part of our common language. The idea that the Universe we observe today originated from an enormous explosion (big bang) is now well known and widely accepted, at all levels, in modern popular culture. But what happens to the Universe before the big bang? And would it make any sense at all to ask such a question? In fact, recent progress in theoretical physics, and in particular in String Theory, suggests answers to the above questions, providing us with mathematical tools able in principle to reconstruct the history of the Universe even for times before the big bang. In the emerging cosmological scenario the Universe, at the epoch of the big bang, instead of being a "new born baby" was actually a rather "aged" creature in the middle of its possibly infinitely enduring evolution. The aim of this book is to convey this picture in non-technical language accessibile also to non-specialists. The author, himself a leading cosmologist, draws attention to ongoing and future observations that might reveal relics of an era before the big bang.

Daniel Weber

The Universe Inside is an exploration of the reinterpretation of reality. It challenges basic assumptions about life that may not be serving our best interests. It considers ideas such as: God exists but did not create the universe; our spirit exists but is not in our body; and how could a loving God allow some terrible injustice to occur? Human origins are also re-examined with new interpretations of ancient writings. The intention of the book is not to define truth but to help us access the Voice of Truth that has always been inside us.

Alexander Marchand

Have you ever contemplated the cause of the universe beyond simply attributing it to God or The Big Bang? If so, in that causal contemplation, have you ever entertained the idea that the universe is but a dream? Which is to say, have you ever considered that the cause of the universe is that you dreamt it up? At first glance, the idea that you dreamt up the universe perhaps seems implausible. However, what if you really took that idea seriously and followed it to its logical conclusion? What would you discover? Well, this book answers that question. Using the unique form of a graphic novel, artist and writer Alexander Marchand takes you on an artistic, humorous, irreverent, and extremely informative romp through the advanced, nondualistic metaphysics of the contemporary spiritual document known as A Course in Miracles. In the end, you ll not only have a coherent picture of the true nature of the universe and existence, but you ll also have essential, practical knowledge of what you ll need to do to if you are ready to wake up.

K. C. Cole

From the acclaimed Los Angeles Times science writer, a wise, witty, and elegant study of how math provides practical solutions to everyday problems. Are the secrets of the universe written in words—or is it all about the digits? K.C. Cole follows up her paean to the power of physics, Sympathetic Vibrations, with this engaging and accessible guide to the might and majesty of mathematics. The Universe and the Teacup uses relatable examples, humorous prose, and whimsical line drawings to demonstrate math’s ability to “translate the complexity of the world into manageable patterns.” Cole shows how mathematical concepts illuminate everything from human risk-taking behavior to astronomical investigation, game theory to logic problems—not to mention the very structure of the universe itself. Brimming with trivia stressing the importance of math throughout history, this is a book both math nerds and the “innumerate” everyday person can enjoy in equal measure. “Cole writes clearly, simply and vividly,” noted The New York Times. “She so obviously likes mathematics, the reader can't help liking it too.” Filled with “a thousand fascinating facts and shrewd observations (Martin Gardner, Los Angeles Times), this book demonstrates how the truth and beauty of everything, from relativity to rainbows, is all in the numbers.

Dave Goldberg

“A great read… Goldberg is an excellent guide.”—Mario Livio, bestselling author of The Golden Ratio Physicist Dave Goldberg speeds across space, time and everything in between showing that our elegant universe—from the Higgs boson to antimatter to the most massive group of galaxies—is shaped by hidden symmetries that have driven all our recent discoveries about the universe and all the ones to come. Why is the sky dark at night? If there is anti-matter, can there be anti-people? Why are past, present, and future our only options? Saluting the brilliant but unsung female mathematician Emmy Noether as well as other giants of physics, Goldberg answers these questions and more, exuberantly demonstrating that symmetry is the big idea—and the key to what lies ahead. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Oli Usher,Lars Lindberg Christensen

Designed with large images and distraction-free layouts to increase the impact of Hubble’s imagery, this book gives the reader a guided tour of the cosmos through the eyes of the Hubble Space Telescope. Before Hubble was launched in 1990, no exoplanet had ever been observed, dark energy was unknown, the age of the universe was a mystery, and the most distant objects observed were just halfway back in time to the Big Bang. Hubble has been the centerpiece in a revolution in astronomy, as well as giving the public a visceral connection to the Universe through its stunning images. The images that have been selected here explore key themes in recent astronomy, including planetary science, cosmology and stellar evolution, explaining Hubble’s contributions to our understanding of the universe. Hubble's unique images – some never published before – are presented together with a mix of cutting-edge science that highlights the key discoveries of the past few years and how they fit into Hubble’s growing list of scientific achievements. It is an unforgettable view of our amazing universe.

United Nations Conference on Trade and Development

This publication is part of a new series of current studies on foreign direct investment and development. The series aims to contribute to a better understanding of how transnational corporations (TNCs) and their activities impact on development. This study quantifies and analyses the past and current trends on the degree of internationalisation of the largest TNCs as well as TNCs from developing economies. It shows how some developing economies have emerged as significant actors in international production. Firms from the United States and Germany and firms in the pharmaceutical industry dominate the top of the list of the most transnational TNCs. The United Kingdom and the Netherlands are the locations most favoured by the largest TNCs, and Brazil and Mexico from the developing economies are also among the top hosts.
