Imagining the Tenth Dimension: A New Way of Thinking About Time and Space
Reality, today's physicists tell us, is created by the vibrations of exquisitely tiny superstrings in ten spatial dimensions. Ten dimensions? Most of us have barely gotten used to the idea that there are four.
Using simple geometry and an easygoing writing style, author Rob Bryanton starts with the lower dimensions that we are...   Foundations of Modern Cosmology
Recent discoveries in astronomy, especially those made with data collected by satellites such as the Hubble Space Telescope and the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, have revolutionized the science of cosmology. These new observations offer the possibility that some longstanding mysteries in cosmology might be answered, including such...   Eureka!: Physics of Particles, Matter and the Universe"... a concise, authoritative, well written review of physics, in all of its branches from Newton to Hawking ... has a truly excellent glossary ..."  Australian & New Zealand Physicist
"... sets out the basic ideas of physics in a readable style which will commend itself to the general reader, highschool... 

Introduction to General RelativityA studentfriendly 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...   McGrawHill Concise Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, Fifth EditionThoroughly revised and updated, this new edition is based on the content of the worldrenowned McGrawHill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, Ninth Edition, the most widely used science reference of its kind. Readers will find concise, authoritative, and uptodate articles on every major field of science and technology  by...   An Introduction to Tensor Calculus, Relativity and CosmologyThis elementary introduction pays special attention to aspects of tensor calculus and relativity that students tend to find most difficult. Its use of relatively unsophisticated mathematics in the early chapters allows readers to develop their confidence within the framework of Cartesian coordinates before undertaking the theory of tensors in... 

Essentials of Mathematical Methods in Science and EngineeringA complete introduction to the multidisciplinary applications of mathematical methods
In order to work with varying levels of engineering and physics research, it is important to have a firm understanding of key mathematical concepts such as advanced calculus, differential equations, complex analysis, and introductory mathematical...   Analytical Geometry of Three Dimensions (Dover Books on Mathematics)
Brief but rigorous, this text is geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students. It covers the coordinate system, planes and lines, spheres, homogeneous coordinates, general equations of the second degree, quadric in Cartesian coordinates, and intersection of quadrics.
Mathematician, physicist, and astronomer, William...   The Fundamental Constants: A Mystery of PhysicsThe speed of light, the fine structure constant, and Newton's constant of gravity  these are just three among the many physical constants that define our picture of the world. Where do they come from? Are they constant in time and across space? In this book, physicist and author Harald Fritzsch invites the reader to explore the mystery of the...
