The Legacy of Albert Einstein: A Collection of Essays in Celebration of the Year of Physics
The Legacy of Albert Einstein: A Collection of Essays in Celebration of the Year of Physics
"In this slender volume, about a dozen experts reflect succinctly on a variety of currently interesting topics, from black hole entropy in string theory to the challenge of dark energy. The book should interest primarily graduate students in physics and also some undergraduates ... is a fine reflection of the internationalism of modern science...
Introduction to General Relativity
Introduction to General Relativity
A student-friendly style, over 100 illustrations, and numerous exercises are brought together in this textbook for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in physics and mathematics. Lewis Ryder develops the theory of general relativity in detail. Covering the core topics of black holes, gravitational radiation, and cosmology, he...
Quantum Mechanics
Quantum Mechanics
Why yet another book on quantum mechanics? Quantum mechanics was born in the first quarter of the twentieth century and has received an enormous number of theoretical and experimental confirmations over the years. It is considered to be the fundamental physical paradigm, and has a wide range of applications, from cosmology to chemistry, and from...
Quantum Gravitation: The Feynman Path Integral Approach
Quantum Gravitation: The Feynman Path Integral Approach
The book covers the theory of Quantum Gravitation from the point of view of Feynman path integrals. These provide a manifestly covariant approach in which fundamental quantum aspects of the theory such as radiative corrections and the renormalization group can be systematically and consistently addressed. The path integral method is suitable for...
Path Integrals in Physics Volume 2: Quantum Field Theory, Statistical Physics & Other Modern Applications
Path Integrals in Physics Volume 2: Quantum Field Theory, Statistical Physics & Other Modern Applications
This book covers the fundamentals of path integrals, both the Wiener and Feynman types, and their many applications in physics. It deals with systems that have an infinite number of degrees of freedom. The book discusses the general physical background and concepts of the path integral approach used, followed by the most typical and important...
Great Physicists: The Life and Times of Leading Physicists from Galileo to Hawking
Great Physicists: The Life and Times of Leading Physicists from Galileo to Hawking

Here is a lively history of modern physics, as seen through the lives of thirty men and women from the pantheon of physics.

William H. Cropper vividly portrays the life and accomplishments of such giants as Galileo and Isaac Newton, Marie Curie and Ernest Rutherford, Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr, right up to contemporary figures...

General Relativity (Graduate Texts in Physics)
General Relativity (Graduate Texts in Physics)

This book provides a completely revised and expanded version of the previous classic edition ‘General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics’. In Part I the foundations of general relativity are thoroughly developed, while Part II is devoted to tests of general relativity and many of its applications. Binary pulsars – our...

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...
The Great Design: Particles, Fields, and Creation
The Great Design: Particles, Fields, and Creation
Although modern physics surrounds us and its concepts are constantly referred to in every newspaper, even educated nonscientists find the subject intimidating in the extreme. Most attempts to explain physics to general readers are either obscured by masses of mathematics or gross oversimplifications written by laymen. Here at last is a...
Gauge Field Theories: An Introduction with Applications
Gauge Field Theories: An Introduction with Applications
Over the last two decades a revolution has taken place concerning the way physicists view the fundamental processes taking place in our universe. This revolution has its basis in the belief that all fundamental interactions are associated with a particularly beautiful and powerful kind of quantum field theory-a theory of local gauge fields. This...
Quantum: The Quantum Theory of Particles, Fields and Cosmology (Theoretical and Mathematical Physics)
Quantum: The Quantum Theory of Particles, Fields and Cosmology (Theoretical and Mathematical Physics)
This book gives a new insight into the interpretation of quantum mechanics (stochastic, integral paths, decoherence), a completely new treatment of angular momentum (graphical spin algebra) and an introduction to Fermion fields (Dirac equation) and Boson fields (e.m. and Higgs) as well as an introduction to QED (quantum electrodynamics),...
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)...
