Boek cover Particle Physics van Frank Close (Paperback)
A Very Short Introduction
In this compelling introduction to the fundamental particles that make up the universe, Frank Close takes us on a journey into the atom to examine known particles such as quarks, electrons, and the ghostly neutrino. Along the way he provides fascinating insights into how discoveries in particle physics have actually been made, and discusses how our picture of the world has been radically revised in the light of these developments. He concludes by looking ahead to new ideas about the mystery of antimatter, the number of dimensions that there might be in the universe, and to what the next 50...

Boek cover Nothing van Frank Close (Paperback)
A Very Short Introduction
What is 'nothing'? What remains when you take all the matter away? Can empty space - a void - exist? This Very Short Introduction explores the science and the history of the elusive void: from Aristotle who insisted that the vacuum was impossible, via the theories of Newton and Einstein, to our very latest discoveries and why they can tell us extraordinary things about the cosmos. Frank Close tells the story of how scientists have explored the elusive void, and the rich discoveries that they have made there. He takes the reader on a lively and accessible history through ancient ideas and...

Boek cover The Infinity Puzzle van Frank Close (Paperback)
The personalities, politics, and extraordinary science behind the Higgs boson
We are living in a Golden Age of Physics. Forty or so years ago, three brilliant, yet little-known scientists - an American, a Dutchman, and an Englishman - made breakthroughs which later inspired the construction of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva: a 27 kilometre-long machine that cost ten billion dollars, took twenty years to build, and finally discovered a particle consistent with the Higgs boson. The Infinity Puzzle is the inside story of those forty years of research, breakthrough, and endeavour. Peter Higgs, Gerard 't Hooft and James Bjorken were the three scientists...

Boek cover Nuclear Physics van Frank Close (Paperback)
A Very Short Introduction
Nuclear physics began long before the identification of fundamental particles, with J. J. Thomson's discovery of the electron at the end of the 19th century, which implied the existence of a positive charge in the atom to make it neutral. In this Very Short Introduction Frank Close gives an account of how this area of physics has progressed, including the recognition of how heavy nuclei are built up in the cores of stars and in supernovae, the identification of quarks and gluons, and the development of quantum chromodynamics (QCD). Exploring key concepts such as the stability of different...

Boek cover Elementaire Deeltjes 33 -   Niets van Frank Close (Paperback)
Wat is 'niets'? Wat blijft er over als je alle materie weghaalt? Kan leegte bestaan? Dit 'Elementaire Deeltje' verkent de wetenschap en de geschiedenis van begrippen als leegte, ruimte en vacuüm: van Aristoteles die volhield dat het vacuüm niet mogelijk was, via theorieën van Newton en Einstein, naar onze laatste ontdekkingen in deeltjesversnellers. Het laat zien dat vacuüm helemaal niet leeg is, dat het vol is met deeltjes die spontaan ontstaan, wat aanwijzingen oplevert over hoe het heelal is ontstaan. Zou er niets bestaan als er niemand is om het waar te nemen? Waar kwam alles...

Boek cover Antimatter van Frank Close (Paperback)
Antimatter explores a strange mirror world, where particles have identical yet opposite properties to those that make up the familiar matter we encounter everyday; where left becomes right, positive becomes negative; and where, should matter and antimatter meet, the two annihilate in a blinding flash of energy that makes even thermonuclear explosions look feeble by comparison. It is an idea long beloved of science-fiction stories-but here, renowned science writer Frank Close shows that the reality of antimatter is even more fascinating than the fiction itself. We know that once,...
