♦ Description : “This is the first book Stephen Hawking has written for the general public. He exposes, in a language accessible to all, the most recent discoveries of astrophysicists. Tracing the great theories of the cosmos from Galileo to Einstein, recounting the latest discoveries in cosmology, explaining the nature of black holes, he then proposes to meet the greatest challenge of modern science: the search for a theory to reconcile general relativity and quantum mechanics. Stephen Hawking has been fighting for over twenty years against a very serious neurological disease. Despite this handicap, he devoted his life to trying to unlock the secrets of the universe and to share his discoveries. A fascinating book.”

Author Biography

Biography

Stephen Hawking”

Stephen William Hawking – is a British theoretical physicist and cosmologist. After obtaining his B.A. at Oxford in 1962, he stayed to study astronomy. He left Oxford, with honors, for Trinity Hall where he participated in the study of theoretical astronomy and theoretical cosmology. In 1965, he married Jane Wilde (1944), a linguistics student. They had three children: Robert (1967), Lucy (1969), and Timothy (1979). The couple separated in 1991.

Almost as soon as he arrived in Cambridge in 1965, he began to develop the symptoms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Charcot’s disease). During his first two years in Cambridge, he did not stand out, but after stabilizing his illness and with the help of his doctoral tutor, William Dennis Sciama, he returned to work on his doctoral dissertation. After receiving his doctorate in 1966, Stephen became a researcher at Gonville and Caius College (Cambridge). The study of singularities, a recent physical and astronomical concept, allows the researcher to develop different theories, which will later lead him from the Big Bang to black holes. All this work will lead him to develop a fascinating cosmological model in 1983, universally known today as the Hartle-Hawking model.

Hawking’s work was done despite the worsening paralysis caused by ALS. He was a professor of mathematics at the University of Cambridge from 1980 to 2009. In 1995, Hawking married his nurse, Elaine Mason. In October 2006, he filed for divorce. Stephen Hawking is known for his contributions in the fields of cosmology and quantum gravity, especially in the context of black holes. His success is also linked to his popular science books, such as the bestseller “A Brief History of Time” (A Brief History of Time, 1988), which remained on the Sunday Times bestseller list for 237 consecutive weeks and translated into more than 35 languages.

He is a world-renowned theoretical physicist whose scientific career spans more than 40 years. His books and public appearances have made him a university celebrity. In 2007, he wrote a book, with his daughter Lucy, “George and the Secrets of the Universe”, first volume of the series “Georges” that he wrote with her.”

Description : In this compelling memoir, Jane Hawking, Stephen Hawking's first wife, relates the inside story of their extraordinary marriage. As Stephen's academic renown soared, his body was collapsing under the assaults of motor-neuron disease, and Jane's candid account of trying to balance his twenty-four-hour care with the needs of their growing family will be inspirational to anyone dealing with family illness. The inner strength of the author and the self-evident character and achievements of her husband make for an incredible tale that is always presented with unflinching honesty; the author's candour is no less evident when the marriage finally ends in a high-profile meltdown, with Stephen leaving Jane for one of his nurses, while Jane goes on to marry an old family friend.In this exceptionally open, moving and often funny memoir, Jane Hawking confronts not only the acutely complicated and painful dilemmas of her first marriage, but also the fault lines exposed in a relationship by the pervasive effects of fame and wealth. The result is a book about optimism, love and change that will resonate with readers everywhere.

Description : Stephen Hawking was recognized as one of the greatest minds of our time and a figure of inspiration after defying his ALS diagnosis at age twenty-one. He is known for both his breakthroughs in theoretical physics as well as his ability to make complex concepts accessible for all, and was beloved for his mischievous sense of humor. At the time of his death, Hawking was working on a final project: a book compiling his answers to the "big" questions that he was so often posed--questions that ranged beyond his academic field. Within these pages, he provides his personal views on our biggest challenges as a human race, and where we, as a planet, are heading next. Each section will be introduced by a leading thinker offering his or her own insight into Professor Hawking's contribution to our understanding. The book will also feature a foreword from Academy Award winning actor Eddie Redmayne, who portrayed Hawking in the film The Theory of Everything, and an afterword by Hawking's daughter, Lucy Hawking, as well as personal photographs and additional archival material.

Description : "If Ms. Frizzle were a physics student of Stephen Hawking, she might have written THE UNIVERSE IN YOUR HAND, a wild tour through the reaches of time and space, from the interior of a proton to the Big Bang to the rough suburbs of a black hole. It's friendly, excitable, erudite, and cosmic." —Jordan Ellenberg, New York Times besteselling author of How Not To Be Wrong Quantum physics, black holes, string theory, the Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy, parallel universes: even if we are interested in these fundamental concepts of our world, their language is the language of math. Which means that despite our best intentions of finally grasping, say, Einstein's Theory of General Relativity, most of us are quickly brought up short by a snarl of nasty equations or an incomprehensible graph. Christophe Galfard's mission in life is to spread modern scientific ideas to the general public in entertaining ways. Using his considerable skills as a brilliant theoretical physicist and successful young adult author, The Universe in Your Hand employs the immediacy of simple, direct language to show us, not explain to us, the theories that underpin everything we know about our universe. To understand what happens to a dying star, we are asked to picture ourselves floating in space in front of it. To get acquainted with the quantum world, we are shrunk to the size of an atom and then taken on a journey. Employing everyday similes and metaphors, addressing the reader directly, and writing stories rather than equations renders these astoundingly complex ideas in an immediate and visceral way. Utterly captivating and entirely unique, The Universe in Your Hand will find its place among other classics in the field.

Description : Spéculations ou rêves de physiciens, les trous noirs ? Il n’en est rien, ils existent bel et bien. Ils sont invisibles ; et pourtant, ils se montrent partout. On ne cesse de parler de ceux qu’on a découverts çà et là ; il paraît même qu’il y en aurait un au centre de notre galaxie. On a aussi essayé de nous faire peur en évoquant les tout petits qui, créés dans les accélérateurs de particules, viendraient nous engouffrer !Que représentent-ils dans notre monde ? Comment les détecter ? Que sait-on de leur nature ?Sans mathématiques ni envolées théoriques ou poétiques, ce livre lève le voile sur les mystères qui entourent l’une des sources d’énergie les plus puissantes et les plus spectaculaires de l’Univers.
