  • Statistical Physics and Thermodynamics by Jochen Rau
    Statistical Physics and Thermodynamics (English, Paperback) Jochen Rau

    Statistical physics and thermodynamics describe the behaviour of systems on the macroscopic scale. Their methods are applicable to a wide range of phenomena, from neutron stars to heat engines, or from chemical reactions to phase transitions. The pertinent laws are among the most universal ones of all laws of physics.

  • Why More Is Different by Brigitte Falkenburg
    Why More Is Different (English, Hardback) Brigitte Falkenburg

    The physics of condensed matter, in contrast to quantum physics or cosmology, is not traditionally associated with deep philosophical questions. However, as science - largely thanks to more powerful computers - becomes capable of analysing and modelling ever more complex many-body systems, basic questions of philosophical relevance arise.

  • Time and Chance by David Z. Albert
    Time and Chance (English, Paperback) David Z. Albert

    This study is an attempt to get to the root of the tension between the best scientific pictures of the physical structure of the world and the everyday, empirical experience of it. This book examines the problem of the direction of time - the notion that whatever can happen, can happen backwards.

  • From Strange Simplicity to Complex Familiarity by Manfred Eigen
    From Strange Simplicity to Complex Familiarity (English, Hardback) Manfred Eigen

    This book presents a vivid argument for the almost lost idea of a unity of all natural sciences. This unity engenders the "complex familiarity" of the world in which we live and which can be described in "strangely simple" theoretical terms, leading to surprising new insights into the mysterious phenomenon of life.
