Using the fundamental nature of gravity, quantum fluctuations, and energy, Not Just Another Theory reimagines the interaction between all aspects of the physical universe to push towards a unified theory of everything free of the assumptions and gaps currently found in the scientific establishment. Far from rehashing old information, this complete theory of nature starts from the beginning by re-establishing what we know and how we know it to move past contradictory approaches and incompatible theories. It casts the whole universe in a new perspective, from the massive movements of galaxies to the tiny fluctuations of quantum loops. Our understanding of nature will never be the same.
After retiring, Alan Halonen began reading the works of physicist Brian Greene and other prominent writers, but found he questioned much of what he found. This launched him on a journey to understand, critique, and rewrite the predominant assumptions in physics, and to establish a new theory to change the way we understand nature.
He lives in Ontario on the shores of Georgian Bay, with his wife and their two pets.
With an emphasis on geometric interpretation, this masterful and comprehensive book introduces the theory of relativity; describes physical applications, from stars to black holes and gravitational waves; and portrays the field’s frontiers. The book also offers a unique, alternating, two-track pathway through the subject. Material focusing on basic physical ideas is designated as Track 1 and formulates an appropriate one-semester graduate-level course. The remaining Track 2 material provides a wealth of advanced topics instructors can draw on for a two-semester course, with Track 1 sections serving as prerequisites.
This must-have reference for students and scholars of relativity includes a new preface by David Kaiser, reflecting on the history of the book’s publication and reception, and a new introduction by Charles Misner and Kip Thorne, discussing exciting developments in the field since the book’s original publication.
