Le Demi Monde Tome 3 t
Il y a huit mille ans, le Déluge a détruit l’empire des Lilithi, dispersant dans notre monde la race de super-guerriers connus sous le nom de Grigori. Ils sont restés cachés jusqu’à aujourd’hui, mais l’existence du Demi-Monde a changé la donne. À présent, ils sont en mesure de prendre le contrôle du Monde Réel et d’en exterminer le genre humain. Trois jeunes femmes pourraient déjouer leurs plans : Norma Williams, piégée dans le cauchemar d’un des Secteurs les plus violents de la ville ; Ella Thomas, réduite en esclavage par l’esprit de Lilith ressuscitée ; et Trixie Dashwood, consumée par sa haine pour Heydrich. Encore faut-il qu’elles parviennent à vaincre leurs démons respectifs...

A First Course in Loop Quantum Gravity
This book provides an accessible introduction to loop quantum gravity and some of its applications, at a level suitable for undergraduate students and others with only a minimal knowledge of college level physics. In particular it is not assumed that the reader is familiar with general relativity and only minimally familiar with quantum mechanics and Hamiltonian mechanics. Most chapters end with problems that elaborate on the text, and aid learning. Applications such as loop quantum cosmology, black hole entropy and spin foams are briefly covered. The text is ideally suited for an undergraduate course in the senior year of a physics major. It can also be used to introduce undergraduates to general relativity and quantum field theory as part of a 'special topics' type of course.
A Fire in the Sun
In a world filled with so many puppets, strings tend to get tangled. In this follow-up to the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel When Gravity Fails, the Budayeen is still a very dangerous place, a high-tech Arabian ghetto where power and murder go hand in hand. Marid Audran used to be a low-level street hustler, relying on his wits and independence. Now he’s a cop planted in the force by Friedlander Bey, the powerful “godfather” of the Budayeen. Marid is supposed to simply be Bey’s envoy into the police, but as a series of grisly murders piles up—children, prostitutes, a fellow officer—he is drawn deeper and deeper into the city’s chaos. Would Marid give up all his newfound money and power to get out of this mess? Absolutely. If only he could. But answers are never that easy and choices are never completely one’s own in the Budayeen.
