Reviews
FROM THE REVIEWS:
MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
"The presentation is clear and readable. The book gives an excellent overview of the phenomena which characterize a direction of time like radiation, thermodynamics, quantum indeterminism and the structure of black holes.”
SCIENCE MAGAZINE
"…I recommend this book to those willing to devote serious effort to learning part of the subject.”
AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICS
"…an excellent summary of what is known at present about this fascinating mystery.”
FROM THE REVIEWS:
ZENTRALBLATT MATH
"The book contains an impressive (we’d say exhaustive) list of references: almost 300 titles (papers and books)…We have to mention the high scientific value of the book, its rigorous welldocumented discussion of the subject, refinement and subtlety of its reasonings. We strongly recommend it to students and specialists in various fields of theoretical physics.”
