Attention à la morsure mortelle du lézard à tâches jaunes! Stanley Yelnats a hérité de la terrible malédiction familiale qui se transmet depuis l'horrible-abominable-vaurien-d'arrière-arrière-grand-père-voleur-de-cochon. Toujours au mauvais endroit, au mauvais moment. Accusé — injustement — de vol, Stanley est envoyé au Camp du Lac vert, un camp de redressement perdu dans le désert du Texas. Ici, la vie est un enfer pour les mauvais garçons comme lui, X-Ray, Calamar, Zéro et tous les autres. Pourquoi faut-il creuser des trous, toute la journée sous un soleil brûlant?

Winner of the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award! This #1 New York Times bestselling, modern classic in which boys are forced to dig holes day in and day out is now available with a splashy new look. Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather and has since followed generations of Yelnatses. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the boys build character by spending all day, every day digging holes exactly five feet wide and five feet deep. There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. But there are an awful lot of holes. It doesn’t take long for Stanley to realize there’s more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake. The boys are digging holes because the warden is looking for something. But what could be buried under a dried-up lake? Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment—and redemption. Includes a double bonus: an excerpt from Small Steps, the follow-up to Holes, as well as an excerpt from Louis Sachar’s new middle-grade novel, Fuzzy Mud. "A smart jigsaw puzzle of a novel." --The New York Times WINNER OF THE BOSTON GLOBE-HORN BOOK AWARD A NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW NOTABLE CHILDREN'S BOOK SELECTED FOR NUMEROUS BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR AND ALA HONORS From the Paperback edition.

This introduction to the fascinating subject of black holes fills a significant gap in the literature which exists between popular, non-mathematical expositions and advanced textbooks at the research level. It is designed for advanced undergraduates and first year postgraduates as a useful stepping-stone to the advanced literature. The book provides an accessible introduction to the exact solutions of Einstein's vacuum field equations describing spherical and axisymmetric (rotating) black holes. The geometry and physical properties of these spacetimes are explored through the motion of particles and light. The use of different coordinate systems, maximal extensions and Penrose diagrams is explained. The association of the surface area of a black hole with its entropy is discussed and it is shown that with the introduction of quantum mechanics black holes cease to be black and can radiate. This result allows black holes to satisfy the laws of thermodynamics and thus be consistent with the rest of physics. In this new edition the problems in each chapter have been revised and solutions are provided. The text has been expanded to include new material on wormholes and clarify various other issues.

Physicists are pondering on the possibility of simulating black holes in the laboratory by means of various “analog models”. These analog models, typically based on condensed matter physics, can be used to help us understand general relativity (Einstein's gravity); conversely, abstract techniques developed in general relativity can sometimes be used to help us understand certain aspects of condensed matter physics. This book contains 13 chapters — written by experts in general relativity, particle physics, and condensed matter physics — that explore various aspects of this two-way traffic. Contents: Introduction and Survey (M Visser)Acoustic Black Holes in Dilute Bose–Einstein Condensates (L Garay)Slow Light (U Leonhardt)Black Hole and Baby Universe in a Thin Film of 3He-A (T Jacobson & T Koike)Measurability of Dumb Hole Radiation? (W Unruh)Effective Gravity and Quantum Vacuum in Superfluids (G Volovik)Emergent Relativity and the Physics of Black Hole Horizons (G Chapline et al.)Quasi-Gravity in Branes (B Carter)Towards a Collective Treatment of Quantum Gravitational Interactions (R Parentani)Role of Sonic Metric in Relativistic Superfluid (B Carter)Effective Geometry in Nonlinear Field Theory (Electrodynamics and Gravity) (M Novello)Non-Inertial Quantum Mechanical Fluctuations (H Rosu)Phonons and Forces: Momentum versus Pseudomomentum (M Stone)Coda (M Visser)Appendix: Elements of General Relativity (M Visser) Readership: Particle physicists, condensed matter physicists and general relativists.

Written by foremost experts, this short book gives a clear description of the physics of quantum black holes. The reader will learn about quantum black holes in four and higher dimensions, primordial black holes, the production of black holes in high energy particle collisions, Hawking radiation, black holes in models of low scale quantum gravity and quantum gravitational aspects of black holes.

"Black holes are one of the most remarkable predictions of Einstein's general relativity. Now widely accepted by the scientific community, most work has focussed on black holes in our familiar four spacetime dimensions. But in recent years, ideas in brane-world cosmology, string theory, and gauge/gravity duality have all motivated a study of black holes in more than four dimensions, with surprising results. In higher dimensions, black holes exist with exotic shapes and unusual dynamics. Edited by leadingexpert Gary Horowitz, this exciting book is the first devoted to this new field. The major discoveries are explained by the people who made them: RobMyers describes theMyers-Perry solutions that represent rotating black holes in higher dimensions; Ruth Gregory describes the Gregory-Laflamme instability of black strings; and Juan Maldacena introduces gauge/gravity duality, the remarkable correspondence that relates a gravitational theory to nongravitational physics. There are two additional chapters on this duality describing how black holes can be used to describe relativistic fluids and aspects of condensed matter physics"--

A pedagogical introduction to the physics of black holes. The membrane paradigm represents the four-dimensional spacetime of the black hole's "event horizon" as a two-dimensional membrane in three-dimensional space, allowing the reader to understand and compute the behavior of black holes in complex astrophysical environments.
