Cycles of Time : An Extraordinary New View of the Universe (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.315

In Cycles of Time: An Extraordinary New View Of The Universe, author Roger Penrose presents new perspectives about the universe started, and how it will end, all carefully explained in his theory of  ‘conformal cyclic cosmology’.

Summary Of The Book

In Cycles of Time: An Extraordinary New View Of The Universe, readers will acquire an appreciation for the intricate laws of physics which seem to govern our universe. Through an examination of old and new cosmological models, Roger Penrose sets out to prove, that the Big Bang was not the beginning of everything, nor will it be the end to everything.

In this book, Penrose offers a carefully detailed analysis of the second law of thermodynamics, stating that the universe is headed towards a total state of randomness.  Penrose further adds, with the passage of large amounts of time, mass breaks down, distances have no value, and our universe will continue to expand.

Penrose was primarily concerned with what occurred in the universe before the “Big Bang”? He combined conformal geometry with the theory of total randomness, to arrive at his central premise, being the ultimate fate of our randomly expanding universe is the precursor to the formation of a big bang.

In Cycles Of Time: An Extraordinary New View Of The Universe, has received positive reviews from esteemed newspapers such as The Guardian and The Boston Globe, coined it as “a black diamond of a book”.
