Die Physik ist bei der Jagd nach der Weltformel in eine Sackgasse geraten. Der Autor zeichnet nach, wie die theoretische Physik vom Weg abkam und nun mit immer größeren Spekulationsblasen in die Esoterik abdriftet. Witzig-bissig und mit unterhaltsamen Anekdoten, aber auch fundiert bis ins Detail nimmt er die heutige Physik aufs Korn und erinnert an die unbeantworteten Fragen, die die wirklichen Größen der Physik bewegt haben. Trotz oder gerade wegen der kritischen Töne ein faszinierendes und nachdenklich machendes Plädoyer für die Wissenschaft.

Does This Year's Nobel Prize In Physics Make Einstein Turn In His Grave?The Higgs Fake – How Particle Physicists Fooled the Nobel Committee is a merciless critique of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and of the theoretical model on which the world's most expensive experiment is based. Unzicker, a German physicist and award-winning science writer, argues that the reaction of the Swedish Academy to last year's discovery appears to be a result of being beguiled by CERN's attempts to justify the billions of dollars of public money being spent.The book starts off by claiming that the greatest physicists such as Einstein, Dirac of Schrödinger would have considered the “discovery” of the Higgs particle ridiculous. The reasons, according to the author, are that: “1) the so-called standard model has grown unbelievably complicated, 2) none of the great riddles of physics that have persisted for a century have been solved, 3) history suggests that the current model is a dead end, 4) with their ever-more intricate experimental techniques, particle physicists are fooling themselves with alleged results, 5) scientific convictions in the community are established by blind faith in expert opinions, group-think and parroting, and 6) the data analysis in its complexity cannot be overseen by anybody.”Unzicker gives a historical survey of the field, and concludes that particle physics, as practiced since 1930, is “a futile enterprise in its entirety.” The book is peppered with a series of funny quotes from famous philosophers and scientists. In the last section, “Antidotes,” he specifically attacks “the overstated claims by famous physicists such as Rolf-Dieter Heuer, Michio Kaku, Lisa Randall, Sean Carroll, Brian Cox and Jim Al-Khalili.” At the end, Unzicker lists questions that he would like to be asked to particle physicists at press conferences, hearings and discussions.Unzicker's books have been praised as “well-grounded, sound, [and] informed,” and as “vehement pleading for physics as a natural science, in its best tradition,” but also dismissed by particle physicists as an “incoherent rant” and “time-wasting nonsense.” The new book, written in an even more explicit and provocative tone, is likely to upset the high energy physics community.Praise for previous books of the author:The assertion that “science means, after all, not being a sucker” is well worth taking to heart. – Publishersweekly A broad dismissal of modern theoretical physicists…Unzicker also targets the massive expenditures of funds on high-energy particle accelerators. – Kirkus ReviewsUnzicker dares to think outside the mainstream. A refreshing and provoking book... – Prof. Hans Volker Klapdor-Kleingrothaus, University of Heidelberg Timely needed revision of contemporary physics´ idiocies. – Prof. Antonio Ruiz de Elvira, University of Alcalá de Henares A passionate and profound search for scientific truth. Unzicker's questions to particle physicists at CERN are justified. PD Peter Thirolf, nuclear physicist at Munich University.A major contribution to physics... Unzicker is pointing out that the emperor is naked... The establishment scientists will curse and moan. – Edwin E Klingman, author, former NASA Research Physicist

This book covers all aspects of inertial navigation systems (INS), including the sensor technology and the estimation of instrument errors, as well as their integration with the Global Positioning System (GPS) for geodetic applications. Complete mathematical derivations are given. Both stabilized and strapdown mechanizations are treated in detail. Derived algorithms to process sensor data and a comprehensive explanation of the error dynamics provide not only an analytical understanding but also a practical implementation of the concepts. A self-contained description of GPS, with emphasis on kinematic applications, is one of the highlights in this book. The text is of interest to geodesists, including surveyors, mappers, and photogrammetrists; to engineers in aviation, navigation, guidance, transportation, and robotics; and to scientists involved in aerogeophysics and remote sensing.

Jaghm N S Mulakhkha

This book provides the only critical edition and English translation of Maḥmūd al-Jaghmīnī’s al-Mulakhkhaṣ fī al-hayʾa al-basīṭa, the most widely circulated Arabic treatise on Ptolemaic astronomy ever written. Composed in the early 13th century, this introductory textbook played a crucial role in the teaching, dissemination, and institutional instruction of Islamic astronomy well into the 19th century (and beyond). Establishing the base text is a fundamental prerequisite for gaining insights into what was considered an elementary astronomical textbook in Islam and also for understanding the extensive commentary tradition that built upon it. Within this volume, the Mulakhkhaṣ is situated within the broader context of the genre of literature termed ʿilm al-hayʾa, which has become the subject of intensive research over the past 25 years. In so doing, it provides a survey of summary accounts of theoretical astronomy of Jaghmīnī’s predecessors, both Ancient and Islamic, which could have served as potential sources for the Mulakhkhaṣ. Jaghmīnī’s dates (which until now remained unsettled) are established, and it is definitively shown that he composed not only the Mulakhkhaṣ but also other scientific treatises, including the popular medical treatise al-Qānūnča, during a period that has been deemed one of scientific decline and stagnation in Islamic lands. The book will be of particular interest to scholars engaged in the study of Islamic theoretical astronomy, but is accessible to a general readership interested in learning what constituted an introduction to Ptolemaic astronomy in Islamic lands.

This book gives a challenging point of view about science and its history/philosophy/sociology. Science is in decline. After centuries of great achievements, the exhaustion of new forms and fatigue have reached our culture in all of its manifestations including the pure sciences. Our society is saturated with knowledge which does not offer people any sense in their lives. There is a loss of ideals in the search for great truths and a shift towards an anodyne specialized industry whose main goal is the sustenance and procreation of an endogamic professional caste. A wide audience of educated people interested in these topics will most likely respond to the ideas expressed here as things they have thought about or observed, but have not dared to say out loud.

In der Physik herrschen scheinbar goldene Zeiten. Raumsonden erforschen den Kosmos, Teilchenbeschleuniger den Urknall. Doch keine Disziplin treibt so seltsame Blüten: Spekulationen über Paralleluniversen etwa oder die String-Theorie, die mit Wissenschaft nicht mehr viel zu tun haben. Gleichzeitig sind grundlegende Fragen der Physik wie die nach der Masse noch immer unbeantwortet. Doch statt Lösungsansätze von Einstein oder Dirac aufzugreifen, verwendet man lieber Milliarden auf die Suche nach neuen Teilchen und mutmaßt über verborgene Dimensionen. Alexander Unzicker liest der Physik die Leviten - und weist ihr den Weg aus dem Labyrinth, in dem sie sich verlaufen hat. Seine fundierte und packende Analyse beweist, dass die derzeitigen Theorien dem Kosmos mit seinen unendlichen Weiten nicht gerecht werden. "Sie haben ein großartiges und aufregendes Buch geschrieben, das mich fasziniert hat. Ihr Kenntnisreichtum und Ihre Gedankentiefe, abseits des Mainstream neu anzusetzen, haben mich sehr beeindruckt. Es ist wunderbar, dass Sie so einen Impuls ausgesendet haben." Prof. Dieter B. Herrmann, Urania Berlin "Spannend, klar geschrieben - und notwendig. Das Buch erfüllt in dem dialektischen Prozess, der Wissenschaft sein sollte, eine lange überfällige Rolle." Raoul Schrott "Eine Analyse mit beeindruckenden Kenntnissen." Prof. Ernst Peter Fischer "Das Buch deckt die fundamentalen Probleme der Kosmologie auf. Nach der Lektüre müsste jedem klar sein, dass die Physik in einer tiefen Krise steckt." Prof. Pavel Kroupa, Universität Bonn "Eine leidenschaftliche und fundierte Suche nach der physikalischen Wahrheit - insbesondere der Teilchenphysik am CERN stellt Unzicker berechtigte kritische Fragen." PD Peter Thirolf, Universität München
