Gravitation (Physics Series)This is a textbook on gravitation physics (Einstein's "general relativity" or "geometrodynamics"). It supplies two tracks through the subject. The first track is focused on the key physical ideas. It assumes, as mathematical prerequisite, only vector analysis and simple partialdifferential equations. It is suitable for a...   Introduction to Quantum Theory"The expertise of Paul shows in the easy transitions made between discussions of theory and experiment, particularly in subjects related to quantum optics." M.C. Ogilvie, Choice Magazine
Providing a deeper understanding of the microscopic world through quantum theory, this supplementary text covers a wider...   

Great Feuds in Mathematics: Ten of the Liveliest Disputes EverMathematical disputes offer indisputable proof that great mathematical minds are calculating in more ways than one. Fueled by greed, jealousy, ambition, and ego, they have plots worthy of a soap opera, pitting brother against brother, father against son, and student against mentor.
In the sixteenth century, Cardano and Tartaglia battled...   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...   Quantum Approach to InformaticsAn essential overview of quantum information
Information, whether inscribed as a mark on a stone tablet or encoded as a magnetic domain on a hard drive, must be stored in a physical object and thus made subject to the laws of physics. Traditionally, information processing such as computation occurred in a framework governed by laws of classical... 

The Physical Tourist: A Science Guide for the TravelerTypical travel guides have sections on architecture, art, literature, music and cinema. Rarely are any sciencerelated sites identified. For example, a current travel guide for Germany contains one tidbit on science: Einstein is identified as the most famous citizen of Ulm. By contrast, this travel guide walks a tourist through Berlin and...     The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Science of EverythingDid you ever wonder how somebody ever figured out all the details of making a cellphone system work? What about those giant MRI machines that can take a picture of your insides without a single incision? Then there is the universe. We think we know at least something about how it started billions of years ago and where it’s going billions of...
