Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

The thought that humans might one day be able to harness time, traveling freely from one age to another, has been a fixture of science fiction for years. Science fact is beginning to catch up to the long-held dream: in this entertaining survey, researcher-writer Clifford Pickover observes that current theories of physics support--or at least do not rule out--the possibilities of time travel.

In chapters that mix whimsical science-fiction scenarios with brief essays on matters of fact, Pickover takes a leisurely stroll through various chrono-cosmological theories and discusses their attendant virtues, flaws, and inherent paradoxes. One modern notion, Kurt Gödel's addendum to Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, posits a rotating universe in which it is possible for a traveler to move between states of time and return to the present (assuming, of course, that there is such a thing as the present); the theory depends on a universe that rotates slowly, which seems not to be the case, but, as Pickover points out, it nevertheless provides a mathematical basis for time travel--which, he suggests, is a fine and worthy start. Pickover peppers his well-illustrated text with learned asides on such matters as light-cone diagrams, rocket clocks, string theory, parallel universes, and other topics real and speculative. What he turns up in the course of his narrative is fascinating--and fuel for anyone who entertains dreams of interdimensional wandering. --Gregory McNamee

Pressestimmen

"Pickover...stretches the limits of computers, art, and thought."--Los Angeles Times
"Only Clifford Pickover would think of mixing time travel and music. Gripping, clear -- this book could well be his best yet! A must buy for all wannabe time travelers."-- Ian Stewart, Scientific American
"The irrepressible and prolific Clifford Pickover... romps joyously through at least four perfectly respectable scientific routes to time travel: relatively, particle physics, quantum mechanics and psychology."--New Scientist
"How to travel through time is no simple matter, nor is explaining it, but Pickover rises to the challenge in many ways....The imaginative and humorous approach makes a difficult subject palatable."--Publishers Weekly

Dr. Pickover has written an entertaining account of time travel. The book may be enjoyed by a scientist or an ordinary reader. In keeping with his unique thought process Pickover has appended a section of comments provided by friends, in effect a set of book reviews. One comment - "The relativistic metric is hyperbolic" can only be appreciated by a physicist. Pickover is indeed a world-class science writer. Any of his books is worth reading. It is a surprise that he did not make himself a subject of his book titled "Strange Brains and Genius; The Secret Lives of Eccentric Scientists and Madmen".

I am completely sure that every kind of reader will get pleasure from this book; furthermore, I guarantee that any reader will recover his/her lost faith in time travel. If you saw "Contact" (the movie), or you often read science-fiction novels or even if you just want to enjoy a good and productive reading, you are strongly advised to buy and read this excellent and fascinating book. "Time: A Traveler's Guide" was written in the same clear, precise and funny way as "Black Holes: A Traveler's Guide" was done in its opportunity. The book now featured by Dr. Pickover will let you discover the "science behind the science-fiction" about the main topic by means of a science-fiction story plenty of funny dialogs, diagrams, formulas and graphics that make the information, and the book in general, a delight to read. You will NOT need vast knowledge in physics or mathematics to understand the ideas, and furthermore, to realize that time travel is possible. The book also offers a great deal of information about the special and the general theory of relativity besides spacetime physics. I also recommend Pickover's book about Black Holes as an excellent complement because that book is one of the best text in this topic and you will see that black holes could serve (in a far but possible future) to travel through time. Sincerely, buy the book and you will see that every page you read becomes a piece of your renovated faith in a dream as beautiful as paradoxical, TIME TRAVEL!

Hi, I notice Publisher's Weekly said about the book, "If you thought time travel was just for science fiction nuts, think again. As Pickover demonstrates, time travel is not the stuff of Asimovian dreams, it being theoretically possible. Of course, how to travel through time is is no simple matter, nor is explaining it, but Pickover rises to the challenge in many ways. Despite the popular tone, Pickover does not shy away from the mathematics of time travel. (He even includes an appendix of programmable algorithms.) A careful reader with some basic science should be able to follow Pickover chapter by chapter . The imaginative and humorous approach makes a difficult subject palatable -- and gives a plug for Chopin at the same time."

Once again, Clifford Pickover has taken tough concepts in physics, mathematics and philosophy and made them available and enjoyable to all. This time with Time: A Traveler's Guide.
As in previous works, Pickover places the reader into the story. The reader along with his companions perform many experiments and mental excercises. The actions of the characters and the experiments themselves are then explained in sections called "The Science Behind the Science Fiction". This makes the book enjoyable for anyone interested in time and time travel. And of course, Pickover includes computer algorithms at the end of the book for us computer junkies!
An excellent book for anyone wishing to travel through time!

Once again, Clifford Pickover has taken tough concepts in physics, mathematics and philosophy and made them tangible to the common reader. This time, he guides the reader through a plethora of mind stretching ideas dealing with time and time travel.
Like other books by Cliff, Time: a Traveler's Guide is written in such a way that anyone with an interest in time and time travel (from one who considers him or herself weak in physics to one who may have a PhD in a science) will enjoy this book. And of course, the computer experiments at the back of the book especially appeal to us computer junkies!
A must read for anyone considering traveling through time!
