内容概要
This book is about only one approach to the subject - loop quantum gravity. It is a subject of considerable technical difficulty, and the literature devoted to it is a formidable one. This feature alone has hindered the cross-fertilization which is, as delineated above, so essential for progress. However, within these pages one will find a much more accessible description of the subject, put forward by one of its leading architects and deepest thinkers. The existence of such a fine book will allow this important subject, quite likely to contribute significantly to the unknown ultimate theory, to be assimilated by a much larger community of the-orists. If this does indeed come to pass, its publication will become one of the most important developments in this very active subfield since its onset.

《量子引力》由世界圖書出版公司出版。Quantum gravity poses the problem of merging quantum mechanics and general relativity, the two great conceptual revolutions in the physics of the twentieth century. The loop and spinfoam approach, presented in this book, is one of the leading research programs in the field. The first part of the book discusses the reformulation of the basis of classical and quantum Hamiltonian physics required by general relativity. The second part covers the basic technical research directions. Appendices include a detailed history of the subject of quantum gravity, hard-to-find mathematical material, and a discussion of some philosophical issues raised by the subject. This fascinating text is ideal for graduate students entering the field, as well as researchers already working in quantum gravity. It will also appeal to philosophers and other scholars interested in the nature of space and time.

评论与打分
  •     這本書很有深度,但很有趣
  •     這種巨著……還是英文的……學完我就成仙了~~
  •     天才制作!
  •     外國貨就是不一樣。中國人二十年內是寫不出這樣的書的。可能確實跟智商有關。
  •     思想+物理
  •     這次買的幾本書,《量子引力》有霉味,《大設計》有腳印,實在是。不退貨了,自己退出。
  •     非常有深度的書籍;他最強調的觀點就是相對主義或者關系主義的觀念的重要性,為了貫徹這一觀念,rovelli勇敢地重構了經典物理和量子物理,非常精彩!量子引力本身是非常數學化的領域,人們更多的是討論數學結構的自洽性,卻忽略物理的討論(當然也許是因為這個問題更加困難,而尚沒有正確理解),但本書花了大篇幅討論物理原理。值得推薦給所有對物理學特別是對時空理論感興趣的人
  •     不過不推薦對相關內容感興趣的人看,一是比較專業,二是國際上一些專家對本書作者有一些非議,認為有走火入魔之嫌
  •     作者是這方面的專家
  •     買的第一本書,還沒看不過大致翻翻感覺超級喜歡
  •     內容非常好,作者是這方面的共同奠基人,所以非常權威,至于紙張其實沒那麼差,估計是因為出版社減少成本,其實也難免,這些圖書引進費用是很貴的,尤其在國外售價不便宜,所以就別抱怨了
  •     目前關于量子引力論的研究,都有點入魔的。象超弦、圈量子論等,都在證明上帝是宇宙的制造者。所以,對科學與宗教有興趣者,都應該看看這本書。看不懂沒關系,因為全世界也沒人敢說自己懂得量子引力的。
