The Future of Theoretical Physics and Cosmology: Celebrating Stephen Hawking's Contributions to Physics
G. W. Gibbons, E. P. S. Shellard, S. J. Rankin
Cambridge University Press, Oct 23, 2003 - Science - 879 pages
Based on lectures given in honor of Stephen Hawking's 60th birthday, this book comprises contributions from the world's leading theoretical physicists. It begins with a introductory section with popular-level lectures and then goes on to provide a critical evaluation of more advanced subjects in modern cosmology and theoretical physics. Topics covered include the origin of the universe, warped spacetime, cosmological singularities, quantum gravity, black holes, string theory, quantum cosmology and inflation. This book provides a fascinating overview of the wide variety of subject areas to which Stephen Hawking has contributed.
