Fat Manifolds and Linear ConnectionsThe theory of connections is central not only in pure mathematics (differential and algebraic geometry), but also in mathematical and theoretical physics (general relativity, gauge fields, mechanics of continuum media). The nowstandard approach to this subject was proposed by Ch. Ehresmann 60 years ago, attracting first mathematicians and...     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... 

A Relativist's Toolkit: The Mathematics of BlackHole Mechanics'... an elegant, thoughtful, useful and altogether commendable publication.' Contemporary Physics 'The author puts emphasis on training the readers and equipping them with the relevant skills of a working relativist. The text reaches a high pedagogical standard ... In this way the author succeeds in closing a gap in the existing text book...   Scaling, Fractals and Wavelets
Scaling is a mathematical transformation that enlarges or diminishes objects. The technique is used in a variety of areas, including finance and image processing. This book is organized around the notions of scaling phenomena and scale invariance. The various stochastic models commonly used to describe scaling ? selfsimilarity, longrange...   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... 


The Great Design: Particles, Fields, and CreationAlthough 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...   Elements of Quantum Information'Elements of Quantum Information' introduces the reader to the fascinating field of quantum information processing, which lives on the interface between computer science, physics, mathematics, and engineering. This interdisciplinary branch of science thrives on the use of quantum mechanics as a resource for high potential modern applications. With...   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...
