    Description de "The Life of the Cosmos"

    Cosmologist Lee Smolin offers a startling new theory of the universe that is at once elegant, comprehensive, and radically different from anything proposed before. In The Life of the Cosmos, Smolin cuts the Gordian knot of cosmology with a simple, powerful idea: "The underlying structure of our world, " he writes, "is to be found in the logic of evolution." Today's physicists have overturned Newton's view of the universe, yet they continue to cling to an understanding of reality not unlike Newton's own - as a clock, an intricate mechanism, governed by laws which are mathematical and eternally true. Smolin argues that the laws of nature we observe may be in part the result of a process of natural selection which took place before the big bang. Smolin's ideas are based on recent developments in cosmology, quantum theory, relativity and string theory, yet they offer, at the same time, an unprecedented view of how these developments may fit together to form a new theory of cosmology. From this perspective, the lines between the simple and the complex, the fundamental and the emergent, and even between the biological and the physical are redrawn. The result is a framework that illuminates many intractable problems, from the paradoxes of quantum theory and the nature of space and time to the problem of constructing a final theory of physics. As he argues for this new view, Smolin introduces the reader to recent developments in a wide range of fields, from string theory and quantum gravity to evolutionary theory the structure of galaxies. He examines the philosophical roots of controversies in the foundations of physics, and shows how they may be transformed as science moves towardunderstanding the universe as an interrelated, self-constructed entity, within which life and complexity have a natural place, and in which "the occurrence of novelty, indeed the perpetual birth of novelty, can be understood."

    Rien ne va plus en physique !

    Depuis quelques décennies, une théorie merveilleuse enthousiasme les physiciens : la théorie des cordes, qui stipule (en bref) que les particules élémentaires - électrons, quarks, etc. - ne seraient pas ponctuelles mais semblables à de minuscules cordes vibrantes : chaque vibration [....]...

    Rien ne va plus en physique ! : L'échec de la théorie des cordes

    " La théorie des cordes n'a pas tenu ses promesses ", affirme Lee Smolin qui fut pourtant lui-même partisan de cette approche. En effet, après plus de vingt ans de mobilisation des esprits et des crédits de recherche, parfois au détriment d'autres domaines de la physique, la théorie des cordes...

    Three Roads to Quantum Gravity

    It's difficult, writes Lee Smolin in this lucid overview of modern physics, to talk meaningfully about the big questions of space and time, given the limitations of our technology and perceptions. It's more difficult still given some of the contradictions and inconsistencies that obtain between quan...

    The Trouble with Physics: The Rise of String Theory, the Fall of a Science and What Comes Next

    The Trouble with Physics is a groundbreaking account of the state of modern physics: of how we got from Einstein and Relativity through quantum mechanics to the strange and bizarre predictions of string theory, full of unseen dimensions and multiple universes. Lee Smolin not only provides a brillian...
