Foundations of Modern Physics
In addition to his groundbreaking research, Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg is known for a series of highly praised texts on various aspects of physics, combining exceptional physical insight with his gift for clear exposition. Describing the foundations of modern physics in their historical context and with some new derivations, Weinberg...   Mechanistic Images in Geometric Form: Heinrich Hertz's Principles of MechanicsThis book gives an analysis of Hertz's posthumously published Principles of Mechanics in its philosophical, physical and mathematical context. In a period of heated debates about the true foundation of physical sciences, Hertz's book was conceived and highly regarded as an original and rigorous foundation for a mechanistic research program....   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... 

  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)...   

Exploring Black Holes: Introduction to General RelativityA concise, direct examination of general relativity and black holes, Exploring Black Holes provides tools that motivate tools that motivate readers to become active participants in carrying out their own investigations about curved spacetime near earth and black holes. The authors use calculus and algebra to make general relativity...     Foundations of Quantum Theory (International School of Physics enrico Fermi )
This volume provides a summary of the lectures presented at the International School of Physics "Enrico Fermi" on the Foundations of Quantum Theory, organized by the Italian Physical Society in Varenna, Italy from 813 July 2016, in collaboration with the Wilhelm und Else HeraeusStiftung. It was the first "Enrico Fermi"...
