This book reveals the results obtained in recent years by the author in relativistic physics.  The recently increased conviction about the conventional definition of relativistic simultaneity has opened the doors to new ideas, in spite of the fact that research has shown that simultaneity in the physical reality exists and is not at all conventional.  If the coefficient of the space variable x in the Lorentz, or other transformation of time (we call it e1) had a convetional nature it should be possible to modify it without touching the empirical predictions of the theory.  Given that Einstein's principle of relativity leads necessarily to the Lorentz transformations, and thus also to a fixed value of e1, such a modification would imply a reformation of the relativistic idea itself.  With respect to the idealized initial picture, the concrete development of research has produced some exciting novelties.  Several phenomena, in particular those taking place on accelerating systems (Sagnac effect, and all that) converge in a strong indication of the value e1 = 0.  This implies absolute simultaneity and a new type of space and time transformations, which we call "inertial".  We give six proofs of absolute simultaneity, which are essentially independent of one another.  In order to make their identification easy, the six chapters in which these proofs are given have equality e1 = 0 already in the title.  The cosmological consequences of the new structure of space and time go against the big bang model.  After our results relativism, although weakened, is not dead, but survives in milder forms.

This book ushers in a new era of experimental and theoretical investigations into collective processes, structure formation, and self-organization of nuclear matter. It reports the results of experiments wherein for the first time the nuclei constituting our world (those displayed in Mendeleev's table as well as the super-heavy ones) have been artificially created. Pioneering breakthroughs are described, achieved at the ?Proton-21? Laboratory, Kiev, Ukraine, in a variety of new physical and technological directions.

A detailed description of the main experiments, their analyses, and the interpretation of copious experimental data are given, along with the methodology governing key measurements and the processing algorithms of the data that empirically confirm the occurrence of macroscopic self-organizing processes leading to the nuclear transformations of various materials. The basic concepts underlying the initiation of self-sustaining collective processes that result in the formation of nuclear structures are also examined.

How to realize nucleosynthesis of stable nuclei in the laboratory? Why are metallic meteorites of iron or nickel-iron? Could the iron be nuclear fuel and could an iron star blow up as a supernova? And what could be the energy source of such an explosion? Is it possible to obtain nuclear energy from any terrestrial substance without producing radioactivity? Do super-heavy (Migdal's) nuclei exist, and is it possible to synthesize them in the laboratory? What physical mechanisms could one use to control nuclear transformations and particularly the sign of the overall energy balance involved?

Answers to these and other intriguing questions are to be found in this book.

La Natura del Tempo, edited by F. Selleri, is a many authored book focussing on QM and Relativity paradoxes, suggesting solutions based on Statistical Mechanics, Ether as prefered reference system and superluminal signals.  It covers a broad spectrum of subjects from microphysics to Cosmology.  Each author developed a topic.  F. Selleri inspired the subjects, collected the contributions, and edited the book.  It is not related to any Conference, but represents a strong contributions to an alternative view of Modern Physics.  Due to its large sale, it should be translated into English.  Not an easy job at 350 pages. - Michele Barone

This text is the first exhaustive treatise on the Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen (EPR) Paradox - the incompatibility, at empirical level, between local realism and the existing quantum theory. The volume collates all the data and thought on the Paradox, from its original formulation in 1935, to some very recent theoretical developments. The authors devote an entire chapter to the EPR Paradox for pairs of neutral kaons. In addition, their text provides 6 different proofs of Bell's Theorem, about 150 references to the literature, and 74 illustrations.

The Olympia conference Frontiers of Fundamental Physics was a gathering of about a hundred scientists who carry on research in conceptually important areas of physical science (they do "fundamental physics").  Most of them were physicists, but also historians and philosphers of science were well represented.  An important fraction of the participants could be considered "heretical" because they disagreed with the validity of one or several fundamental assumptions of modern physics.  Common to all participants was an excellent scientific level coupled with a remarkable intellectula honesty: we are proud to present to the readers this certainly unique book.

Alternative ways of considering fundamental matters should of course be vitally important for the progress of science, unless one wanted to admit that physics at the end of the XXth century has already obtained the final truth, a very unlikely possibility even if one accepted the doubtful idea of the existence of a "final" truth.  The merits of the Olympia conference should therefore not be judged a priori in a positive or in a negative way depending on one's refusal or acceptance, respectively, of basic principles of contemporary sience, but considered after reading the actual new proposals and evidence there presented.  They seem very important to us... - From the Preface.

This book is an expanded version of Selleri's Die Debatte um die Quantentheorie, and is devoted to the most foundamental themes of Quantum Physics: acausality, wave-particle duality, Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox, and so on. Several paradoxes have plagued quantum physics since its beginnings, the easiest of which to solve are the paradoxes of completeness (Schrodinger's cat, Wigner's friend, de Broglie's box, etc.). At a deeper level is the paradox of wave-particle duality whose solution probaily requires the Einstein-de Broglie picture of atomic systems. The most difficult of them all is the EPR paradox (incompatibility between local realism and quantum theory). The book shows that experimental research can, in principle, solve paradoxes such as EPR and wave-particle duality but the experiments performed on Bell-type inequalities have instead left the conceptual situation fundamentally unmodified.

Rewiews of "Quantum Paradoxes and Physical Reality":

"This volume is major contribution to the literature on the foundations of quantum physics. It should be an important reference book in the field for years to come." - Alastair I.M. Rae, Found. Physics, Vol. 23, p. 133 (1993).

"I strongly recommend the reading of Selleri's book, not only because of its technical interest, but also for seeing how the inevitable perplexities of any other quantum theorist are viewed by a declared partisan of realism." (Transl. from French) - Olivier Costa de Beauregard, Ann. Fond. L. de Broglie, Vol. 15, p. 239 (1991).

"Professor Selleri is almost uniquely qualified - a true skeptic who nonetheless has a deep grasp of the 'Copenhagen interpretation'. If you add to this an unflagging intellectual honesty and a basic sense of fairness, you can appreciate what a special document this book is." - Daniel Greenberger, Physics Essays, Vol. 4, p. 436 (1991).

"Selleri has written with rigor and clarity a superb book which is understandable and informative for every one interested in quantum mechanics." - Max Jammer, Found. Physics, vol. 21, p. 1335 (1991).

"Selleri has also achieved a part of what Einstein had in mind: to find a possibility to conceive causal and real processes as the foundation of statistical quantum theory without falling into logical contradictions." (Transl. from German) - Erwin Kerkenberg, Jour. Gen. Phil. Science, Vol. 22, p. 177 (1991).

"On reading these pages one is overcome with the impression that the 'Copenhagen interpretation' is not the only possible one. I do belive that this book makes us understand the essence of quantum mechanics, an understanding that is never available in regular textbooks of physics." (Trasl. from Japanese) - Mikio Namiki, Butsuri, Vol. 53, p. 795 (1991).

"In this work Professor Franco Selleri of the University of Bari turns in a remarkable virtuoso performance in which historically and philosophically sensitive discussion accompanies a careful and thorough presentation of the requisite technical details." - James Cushing, Am. Jour. of Physics, Vol. 58, p. 797 (1990).

"The work described here is a fascinating story, documented with meticulous details, of human inquiry into some of the most intriguing fundamental questions of science." - Dipankar Home, 2001, Vol. Nov. 1990, p. 37.
