Mad About Modern Physics : Braintwisters, Paradoxes, and Curiosities
Mad About Modern Physics : Braintwisters, Paradoxes, and Curiosities
This book of almost 250 puzzles begins where our first book, Mad
About Physics: Braintwisters, Paradoxes, and Curiosities (2001)
ended—with the physics of the late nineteenth and early twentieth
centuries. The Michelson-Morley experiment of 1887, the
challenges posed by atomic spectra and blackbody radiation, the...
A Course in Theoretical Physics
A Course in Theoretical Physics

This book is a comprehensive account of five extended modulescovering the key branches of twentieth-century theoretical physics,taught by the author over a period of three decades to students onbachelor and master university degree courses in both physics andtheoretical physics.

The modules cover nonrelativistic quantum mechanics,...

Tensors: The Mathematics of Relativity Theory and Continuum Mechanics
Tensors: The Mathematics of Relativity Theory and Continuum Mechanics
This book emerged from courses taught at the University College of Dublin, Carnegie-Mellon University and mostly at Simon Fraser University. This is a modern introduction to the theory of tensor algebra and tensor analysis. It discusses tensor algebra in Chapters 1 and 2. Differential manifold is introduced in Chapter 3. Tensor analysis,...
Einstein, Physics and Reality
Einstein, Physics and Reality

Albert Einstein was one of the principal founders of the quantum and relativity theories. Until 1925, when the Bose-Einstein statistics was discovered, he made great contributions to the foundations of quantum theory. However, after the discovery of quantum mechanics by Heisenberg and wave mechanics by Schrodinger, with the consequent...

The Legacy of Albert Einstein: A Collection of Essays in Celebration of the Year of Physics
"In this slender volume, about a dozen experts reflect succinctly on a variety of currently interesting topics, from black hole entropy in string theory to the challenge of dark energy. The book should interest primarily graduate students in physics and also some undergraduates ... is a fine reflection of the internationalism of modern science...
Time: From Earth Rotation to Atomic Physics
Time: From Earth Rotation to Atomic Physics

Everyday use of time in one form or another is a common experience for everyone throughout their lives. The availability of a means to measure the passage of time with the required accuracy is taken for granted. However, the concepts on which those time scales are based and the requirements for accuracy in many applications can be both...

String Theory For Dummies
String Theory For Dummies

Why are scientists so excited about string theory? Because string theory is the most likely candidate for a successful theory of quantum gravity — a theory that scientists hope will unite two major physical laws of the universe into one. Right now, these laws (quantum physics and general relativity) describe two totally different types...

Quantum Physics: A Text for Graduate Students
Quantum Physics: A Text for Graduate Students
This text develops quantum theory from its basic assumptions, beginning with statics, followed by dynamics and details of applications and the needed computational techniques. The discussion is based on the view that the fundamental entities of the universe are not particles but fields, with the observed particles arising as their quanta. Quantum...

Scaling, Fractals and Wavelets
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 ? self-similarity, long-range...

Quantum Computer Science: An Introduction
Quantum Computer Science: An Introduction
In the 1990's it was realized that quantum physics has some spectacular applications in computer science. This book is a concise introduction to quantum computation, developing the basic elements of this new branch of computational theory without assuming any background in physics. It begins with an introduction to the quantum theory from a...
