Title Review

Which are the fundamental particles which constitute the Universe? What are the laws that govern their dynamics? What is ‘space’ and what is ‘time’? These are some of the questions that the theory of atomism tries to answer. Beginning with early atomism: Indian, Greek, and others, nearly thirty articles here highlight how our current understanding of ‘reality has come about. They highlight the landmark contributions of Galileo, Kepler, Newton, Maxwell, Boltzmann, Gibbs, Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Bose, C.V. Raman, and many others; besides spelling out Dark Universe, the Hot Big Bang, and Time, Space and Our Universe.

J. Pasupathy is firmer Professor, Chairman (Centre of Theoretical Studies) and, finally, Dean of Science Faculty, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. He retired as Honorary Professor in 2007.
