Collider: The Search for the World's Smallest Particles"Paul Halpern is a gifted writer who brings science and scientists alive. This is a wonderful introduction to the world of highenergy physics, where gigantic machines and tiny particles meet." ”Kenneth Ford, retired director of the American Institute of Physics and author of The Quantum World: Quantum Physics for Everyone...   Quantum Gravitation: The Feynman Path Integral ApproachThe 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...   Quantum Cosmology and Baby UniversesQuantum 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 spacetime itself to lose its meaning and gravity to be subsumed (along with the other socalled fundamental interactions)... 

    The Cosmic Microwave BackgroundThe 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,...
