Collection: AEIS
Presentation:

Integrated in the multidisciplinary view of our Academy, this book shows the scientific advances accomplished since Einstein's first works at the beginning of the XXth century in the main two fields of modern Physics, which are General Relativity and Quantum Physics. It is aimed at collecting the most significant scientific results and observations from the end of the XXth century and the beginning of the 3rd Millennium. Despite the present problems of attempts to conciliate them in order to build a unified theory, these two theories show to be very relevant in each of their relative fields of validity. They offer an unimaginably rich view of the world and the universe.
This book comprises four parts:
1) Relativity, Waves of the Universe
2) Particle-Wave Duality in Quantum Physics
3) Waves, Matter and Quantification
4) A new Scientific Revolution on the horizon?
