About this book

This book highlights selected contributions presented at the 15th annual international symposium Frontiers of Fundamental Physics (FFP15), with the aim of informing readers about the most important recent advances in fundamental physics and physics education research. The FFP series offers a platform for physicists from around the world to present their latest theories and findings. The latest symposium was held in Orihuela, Spain and covered diverse fields of research, including gravitation, astronomy and astrophysics, physics of complex systems, high-energy physics, and mathematical physics. Considerable attention was also paid to physics education research, teacher education in physics, and the popularization of physics. In a knowledge-based society, research into fundamental physics plays a vital role in both the advancement of human knowledge and the development of new technologies. Presenting valuable new peer-reviewed contributions submitted from 15 countries, this book will appeal to a broad audience of scholars and researchers.


About the authors

B.G. Sidharth is a physicist best known for his pioneering work on dark energy (an accelerating universe) and two-dimensional material. Aside from these aspects, his work has chiefly focused on high-energy physics. He has a number of books to his credit, and over 200 papers in leading physics journals. He is Director of the B.M. Birla Science Centre in Hyderabad, India.

Jesús Carnicer Murillo is an associated professor at the Department of Statistics, Mathematics, and Computer Science, Miguel Hernández University of Elche; Pedagogic Director of the Didactic, Interactive, and Science Museum of Orihuela (MUDIC-VBS-CV); and a secondary school teacher for physics and chemistry. His research mainly focuses on science education and in particular science teacher education, producing contributions at both the international and the popular level.

Marisa Michelini is a full professor of physics education at Udine University, Italy, where she is Rector Delegate for Didactic Innovation and heads the Physics Education Research Unit (URDF). She is President of the International Physics Education Research Group (GIREP), and a committee member of the Multimedia Physics Teaching and Learning (MPTL) and Physics Education Divisions of the European Physics Society (EPS-PED). She is also Director of the Italian University Consortium on Education and Guidance (GEO) and an honorary member of the Italian Association for Physics Teaching (AIF). She has carried out five EU, ten national, and eight regional projects on physics education and teacher education and has authored more than 600 publications in books and peer-reviewed journals.

Carmen Perea holds a degree in Mathematics from the University of Valencia and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Alicante. She is currently a professor at the Department of Statistics, Mathematics, and Computer Science at Miguel Hernández University of Elche and Director-Manager of the Didactic, Interactive, and Science Museum of Orihuela (MUDIC-VBS-CV). Her research activities are in the field of linear algebra in general and more specifically in the application of control theory to convolutional codes. In addition to a number of articles in this field published in international journals, she has written articles on education and mathematical dissemination.
