Quantum Mechanics of Fundamental Systems: The Quest for Beauty and Simplicity: Claudio Bunster Festschrift
Quantum Mechanics of Fundamental Systems: The Quest for Beauty and Simplicity: Claudio Bunster Festschrift
This is a collection of contributed papers by former collaborators and colleagues of Claudio Bunster (formerly Teitelboim). The topics include General Relativity, Quantum Gravity, String Theory; from historical reviews to current research; from mathematical structures underlying the fundamental interactions, to cosmological scenarios describing the...
Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics: The Strange Theory of Light in a Box
Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics: The Strange Theory of Light in a Box

What happens to light when it is trapped in a box?

Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics addresses a fascinating question in physics: what happens to light, and in particular to its interaction with matter, when it is trapped inside a box? With the aid of a model-building approach, readers discover the answer to this question and come to...

The Nine Numbers of the Cosmos
The Nine Numbers of the Cosmos
"Drawing upon Descartes's saying, 'What do I know?' Rowan-Robinson asks what we know about the universe. In answer, he has come up with nine numbers that summarize our current understanding of the cosmos. . . . The numbers Rowan-Robinson presents are grounded in scientific research, although more than a little speculation was used in deriving...

Approaches to Quantum Gravity: Toward a New Understanding of Space, Time and Matter
Approaches to Quantum Gravity: Toward a New Understanding of Space, Time and Matter

The theory of quantum gravity promises a revolutionary new understanding of gravity and spacetime, valid from microscopic to cosmological distances. Research in this field involves an exciting blend of rigorous mathematics and bold speculations, foundational questions and technical issues. Containing contributions from leading researchers in...

The Artful Universe Expanded
The Artful Universe Expanded
Our love of art, writes John Barrow, is the end product of millions of years of evolution. How we react to a beautiful painting or symphony draws upon instincts laid down long before humans existed. Now, in this enhanced edition of the highly popular The Artful Universe, Barrow further explores the close ties between our aesthetic appreciation and...
Quantum Cosmology and Baby Universes
Quantum Cosmology and Baby Universes
Quantum gravity is notoriously a subject where problems vastly outnumber results. This is no surprise at short distances, on the order of the Planck length, where most of us expect quantum fluctuations in the metric to cause space-time itself to lose its meaning and gravity to be subsumed (along with the other so-called fundamental interactions)...
The Cosmic Microwave Background
The Cosmic Microwave Background
The cosmic microwave background (CMB) is the radiation left over from the Big Bang. Recent analysis of the fluctuations in this radiation has given us valuable insights into our Universe and its parameters. Examining the theory of CMB and recent developments, this textbook starts with a brief introduction to modern cosmology and its main successes,...
The Casimir Effect
The Casimir Effect
"... the book is very comprehensive, clearly written and filled with wonderful physics." -- CERN Courier, Mar 2002

"Milton's attractively slim book will guide the serious beginner and its analytical rigor should also attract experienced theorists" -- Physics Today, Jan 2003

An Introduction to Modern Cosmology
An Introduction to Modern Cosmology
An Introduction to Modern Cosmology Second Edition is an accessible account of modern cosmological ideas.  The Big Bang Cosmology is explored, looking at its observational successes in explaining the expansion and age of the universe, the existence and properties of the cosmic microwave background, and the origin of the light elements...
Epistemology and Probability: Bohr, Heisenberg, Schr?dinger, and the Nature of Quantum-Theoretical Thinking
Epistemology and Probability: Bohr, Heisenberg, Schr?dinger, and the Nature of Quantum-Theoretical Thinking

The book offers an exploration of the relationships between epistemology and probability in the work of Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schrödinger; in quantum mechanics; and in modern physics as a whole. It also considers the implications of these relationships and of quantum theory itself for our understanding of the nature of...

Relativity: Special, General, and Cosmological
Relativity: Special, General, and Cosmological

Relativistic cosmology has in recent years become one of the most exciting and active branches of current research. In conference after conference the view is expressed that cosmology today is where particle physics was forty years ago, with major discoveries just waiting to happen. Also gravitational wave detectors, presently under...
