Einstein's Unification
Introduction 1. Formulating the gravitational field equations 2. On the method of theoretical physics 3. Unification and field theory 4. Experiment and experience 5. The method as directive:Expand
Emergence in Holographic Scenarios for Gravity
‘Holographic’ relations between theories have become an important theme in quantum gravity research. These relations entail that a theory without gravity is equivalent to a gravitational theory withExpand
Reactionaries and Einstein’s Fame: “German Scientists for the Preservation of Pure Science,” Relativity, and the Bad Nauheim Meeting
Two important and unpleasant events occurred in Albert Einstein’s life in 1920: That August an antirelativity rally was held in the large auditorium of the Berlin Philharmonic, and a few weeks laterExpand
Numerical optimization of actuator trajectories for ITER hybrid scenario profile evolution
Optimal actuator trajectories for an ITER hybrid scenario ramp-up are computed using a numerical optimization method. For both L-mode and H-mode scenarios, the time trajectory of plasma current, ECExpand
Introduction : Cold War Science and the Transatlantic Circulation of Knowledge
PART 1 Secrecy and Science 1 Scientists, Secrecy, and Scientific Intelligence: The Challenges of International Science in Cold War America Ronald E. Doel 2 A 'Need-To-Know-More' Criterion? ScienceExpand
Einstein and the Kaluza–Klein particle
Abstract In his search for a unified field theory that could undercut quantum mechanics, Einstein considered five-dimensional classical Kaluza–Klein theory. He studied this theory most intensivelyExpand
The interpretation of the Einstein-Rupp experiments and their influence on the history of quantum mechanics
The Einstein-Rupp experiments were proposed in 1926 to study the wave versus particle nature of light. Einstein presented a theoretical analysis of these experiments to the Berlin Academy togetherExpand
On the history of the quantum: Introduction to the HQ2 special issue
The historiography of quantum theory exhibits a period of intense activity that started in the 1960s, with the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics project, and continued with the work ofExpand
Emil Rupp, Albert Einstein and the canal ray experiments on wave-particle duality: Scientific fraud and theoretical bias
In 1926, Emil Rupp published a number of papers on the interference properties of light emitted by canal ray sources. These articles, particularly one paper that came into being in closeExpand
