Part one focuses on the special theory and begins with the study of relativistic kinematics from three points of view: the physical (the classic gedanken experiments), the algebraic (the Lorentz transformations), and the graphic (the Minkowski diagrams). Part one concludes with chapters on relativistic dynamics and electrodynamics.
Part two begins with a chapter introducing differential geometry to set the mathematical background for general relativity. The physical basis for the theory is begun in the chapter on uniform accelerations.
Subsequent chapters cover rotation, the electromagnetic field, and material media. A second chapter on differential geometry provides the background for Einstein's gravitational-field equation(less)
In her presence, Tara sinks into the blissful torpor of home, atonce her dreamy old self, but careful as ever around her older sister. For at theheart of this reunion are numerous tensions: their autistic brother Baba isincreasingly unquiet; Bim has not spoken to their other brother, Raja, for yearsand refuses to go to his daughters wedding; Tara feels the persistent guilt ofhaving, like the others, abandoned her.
Spanning the post-independence yearsfrom the 40s to the 80s, the sisters recall the death of Gandhi along with thoseof their parents, Rajas infatuation with their neighboring Muslim family andthe violence of Partition. For here is the tale of both(less)
As Emilie unravels the story, she too embarks on her own journey of discovery, realising that the chateau may provide clues to her own difficult past and finally unlock the future.The past: London 1943.
A young office clerk, Constance Carruthers, is drafted into the SOE, arriving in occupied Paris during the climax of the conflict. Separated from her contact in her very first hours in France, she stumbles into the heart of a wealthy family who are caught up in a deadly game of secrets and lies.
Forced to surrender her identity and all ties to her homeland(less)
It would be like hearing Christopher Columbus on the New World.Hawking presents a series of seven lec-tures--covering everything from big bang to black holes to string theory--that capture not only the brilliance of Hawking's mind but his characteristic wit as well.
Of his research on black holes, which absorbed him for more than a decade, he says, "It might seem a bit like looking for a black cat in a coal cellar."Hawking begins with a history of ideas about the universe, from Aristotle's determination that the Earth is round to Hubble's discovery, over 2000 years later, that the universe is epanding.
Using that as a launching pad, he eplores the reaches of modern physics, including theories(less)
General Relativity or The General Theory of Relativity is the geometric theory of Gravitation published by Albert Einstein in 1916 and is also the current definition of Gravitation in Modern Physics. Until now, this was considered to be out of reach of undergraduate students because of the advanced mathematics required for in-depth understanding of the theory.
Some of the concepts covered in this book are Space and Time in Newtonian Physics and Special Relativity (which includes Gravitational Physics and Newtonian Physics), The Curved Spacetimes of General Relativity (which includes Gravity as Geometry, Black Holes, Cosmological Models, and Solar System Tests), and The Einstein Equation (which includes Curvature and the Einstein Equation and Gravitational Wave Emission). Examples are given before the derivations in the book(less)

"As is known to Sanskrit Bana is very affluent in his diction, style and employment of figures of speech. Rightly goes the saying banocchistam jagat sarvam.
Though Bana at times, appears to be too ornate and verbose, his style is always mellifluous and his writing enriched in allusions and cultural ideals to all time of all people. At the same time his good style, marked by long compounds and lofty imaginations, can never be lost sight off.
The present work has highlighted the merits of Bhanucandra as commentator of Bana's Kadambari. And has given a critical analysis of Bana's style and diction and also the erudite scholarship of Bhanu, who has left on word unturned to find out the sources of Bana's usage(less)
Manifestation of this has already been felt in Bali, Delhi, Bangkok and Dhaka itself, as fundamentalist forces seek not only to further the 'clash of civilizations', but also systematically purge all forms of opposition to their agenda. A plethora of Islamist groups and personalities such as Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islam, Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh, Jagrata Muslim Janata Bangladesh and 'Bangla Bhai' have begun to undertake action in close concert with groups such as the al-Qaeda, the Jemaah Islamiah and the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen(less)
In an account that is part history, part memoir, Habibullah draws on his long personal experience in the state administration to trace the missteps of the Indian government, the greed of entrenched Kashmiri elites, the state s religious politics, the inevitable polarization of communities and the ubiquitous political intrigue that repeatedly undermined hopes of tranquillity. Unlike many others who have written on the subject, Habibullah gives even-handed treatment to both Indian and Pakistani perspectives, but keeps the Kashmiri(less)

International biological security - Is it achievable? Appendices. Select Bibliography.
"In the wake of 9/11 the threat of biological terrorism and sabotage has been thrust to the forefront of public consciousness. However, this is far from being a new phenomenon.
From World War II onwards, the Cold War powers devoted considerable resources to developing what became known in the military as 'bugs and gas'. This groundbreaking new study lifts the lid on the top-secret department 12 of Directorate S (Special Operations) - the elite inner core of the KGB first chief directorate and its successor, the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service.
During the 1980s and early 1990s the department was charged with the encouragement of biological espionage, planning and preparation of acts(less)
From the murky details of the 'election rigging cells' that Bhutto was on the brink of exposing, inside information about her 'designated killers', the dubious security cover, the wanton destruction of evidence at the crime scene, the cover-up that began soon after the murder, the scapegoats, the arbitrary arrests and the compromised investigations, to the outright deceptions of various military top brass and even members of her own party, the book reveals it all. Other highlights(less)
