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)...
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,...
Iconology, Neoplatonism, and the Arts in the Renaissance (Routledge Research in Art History)
Iconology, Neoplatonism, and the Arts in the Renaissance (Routledge Research in Art History)

The mid-twentieth century saw a change in paradigms of art history: iconology. The main claim of this novel trend in art history was that renowned Renaissance artists (such as Botticelli, Leonardo, or Michelangelo) created imaginative syntheses between their art and contemporary cosmology, philosophy, theology, and...

The High Energy Universe: Ultra-High Energy Events in Astrophysics and Cosmology
The High Energy Universe: Ultra-High Energy Events in Astrophysics and Cosmology

In the last two decades, cosmology, particle physics, high energy astrophysics and gravitational physics have become increasingly interwoven. The intense activity taking place at the intersection of these disciplines is constantly progressing, with the advent of major cosmic ray, neutrino, gamma ray and gravitational wave observatories for...

Practical Relativity: From First Principles to the Theory of Gravity
Practical Relativity: From First Principles to the Theory of Gravity

The book is intended to serve as lecture material for courses on relativity at undergraduate level. Although there has been much written on special relativity the present book will emphasize the real applications of relativity. In addition, it will be physically designed with the use of box summaries so as to allow easy access of practical...

Understanding the Universe: From Quarks to the Cosmos
Understanding the Universe: From Quarks to the Cosmos

Lincoln's humor and personal tales do much to convey the flavor of modern particle physics research. -- Symmetry

The Big Bang, the birth of the universe, was a singular event. All of the matter of the universe was concentrated at a single point, with temperatures so high that even the familiar protons and

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...

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...

The Big and the Small - From Microcosm to the Macrocosm: The Facinating Link Between Particle Physics and Cosmology
The Big and the Small - From Microcosm to the Macrocosm: The Facinating Link Between Particle Physics and Cosmology
This book is the second part of the two-volume set entitled The Big and the Small. The first volume, Journey into the Microcosm: The Story of Elementary Particles, dealt essentially with the small, i.e., elementary particles. The present volume first takes the reader to the other extreme, the big or the cosmos, and then wraps up...
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...
