Zero to Infinity: The Foundations of Physics, by Peter Rowlands, 
Univ. of Liverpool

You can download the first chapter for free.


Promo description: Unique in its field, this book uses a methodology 
that is entirely new, creating the simplest and most abstract 
foundations for physics to date. The author proposes a fundamental 
description of process in a universal computational rewrite system, 
leading to an irreducible form of relativistic quantum mechanics from 
a single operator. This is not only simpler, and more fundamental, 
but also seemingly more powerful than any other quantum mechanics 
formalism available. The methodology finds immediate applications in 
particle physics, theoretical physics and theoretical computing. In 
addition, taking the rewrite structure more generally as a 
description of process, the book shows how it can be applied to 
large-scale structures beyond the realm of fundamental physics.
