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...

Science and Religion: Understanding the Issues
Science and Religion: Understanding the Issues

From the heliocentric controversy and evolution, to debates on biotechnology and the environment, this book offers a balanced introduction to the key issues in science and religion.

  • A balanced, introductory textbook which fully spans the interface between science and religion, and includes illustrations of scientific...
Fundamental Astronomy
Fundamental Astronomy

Fundamental Astronomy gives a well-balanced and comprehensive introduction to the topics of classical and modern astronomy. While emphasizing both the astronomical concepts and the underlying physical principles, the text provides a sound basis for more profound studies in the astronomical sciences.

The fifth edition of this...

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...
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...
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...
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)...
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...
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,...
Universe or Multiverse?
Universe or Multiverse?

Recent developments in cosmology and particle physics, such as the string landscape picture, have led to the remarkable realization that our universe - rather than being unique - could be just one of many universes. The multiverse proposal helps to explain the origin of the universe and some of its observational features. Since the physical...

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...
Space Science
Space Science

This invaluable book provides an introduction to space science. It brings together the various space science disciplines in one volume, and will benefit a wide audience, particularly students starting their graduate studies. The text presents a unique outlook, which will encourage students to think in broad terms across the whole range of...
