 Summary

"Dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens (16291695) left an indelible mark on the fields of mathematics, physics, astronomy, and geophysics. Despite his groundbreaking contributions, history has often overlooked his pivotal role. While two of the most famous achievements in physics are Newton's theory of gravity and Einstein's general theory of relativity, less wellknown is that Huygens provided central elements to these theories. This book stands to correct that deficit. For example, we show how Huygens used symmetry arguments to derive conservation laws for momentum and for energy, and what Einstein later called the principle of equivalence to derive the formula for centrifugal force. In 1689, Huygens visited Newton. Together, they walked the streets of London. Newton had recently finished his masterpiece, Principia, expounding his laws of motion and the law of universal gravitation. Huygens had essentially completed his life's work by then, building on Archimedes, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo, Descartes, Fermat, Pascal and his own ingenuity. He had established fame as an instrument maker (telescope, pendulum clock, planetarium). He had invented the 31 tone system. He had pioneered the first principles of remote sensing. He had discovered the rings of Saturn. He had formulated the wave theory of light. What would walking with Christiaan reveal? This book gives the result in nine chapters, namely: spontaneous order, the speed of light, Huygens' principle, the telescope, the pendulum clock, HuygensFresnel principle, special relativity, centrifugal force, and curvature. In addition, there is a chapter titled What Huygens could have written on diffraction, and a chapter titled Huygens and Geophysics. Mentally walking with Christiaan, browsing his collected works  a true treasure trove for puzzle enthusiasts  and rethinking his ideas creates a vivid impression of scientific life in the 17th century, an appreciation that it is remarkably similar to ours, and an understanding of Huygens' significant and lasting contributions to science."

 Summary

The 1st International Conference on Pure and Applied Physics (ICPAP 2021) was held from the 6th to the 9th of December, 2021. The ICPAP was organized online by the National Committee of Physics (NCP) at the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology (ASRT) in Egypt due to the worldwide pandemic circumstances of COVID19. The conference was sponsored by the ASRT and endorsed by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP). The members of the international scientific committee of the conference have determined the scientific and technical contents, given the broad field of interest. Besides the fundamental physics research, there were also physics applications presented in different meeting sessions. Namely, in industry, medicine, biology, environment, nuclear and radiation physics, plasma physics, and photonics, presented and discussed in several original plenaries, invited, and regular presentations.

 Summary

The International Symposium on Physics and Applications, ISPA, is an annual symposium organized by Department of Physics, Faculty of Sciences and Data Analytics, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember, Indonesia. Following the success of the 1st ISPA in 2020, the 2nd ISPA aimed to be a platform in exchanging ideas and discussions among physicists particularly in Indonesia and more broadly at the international level. These proceedings contain papers that describe the state of the art for physics and its applications written by prominent students, scientists, and engineers active in the field, addressing the research topics of theoretical physics, modelling, and computational physics; laser and optoelectronics; instrumentations and acoustics; earth sciences and geophysics; bio and medical physics; and material physics.
