#### Deformed Spacetime

Springer 2007; US$ 249.00This volume provides a detailed discussion of the mathematical aspects and the physical applications of a new geometrical structure of space-time, based on a generalization ("deformation") of the usual Minkowski space, as supposed to be endowed with a metric whose coefficients depend on the energy. Such a formalism (Deformed Special Relativity,... more...

#### General Relativistic Dynamics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 91.00This book brings Einstein's general relativity into action in new ways at scales ranging from the tiny Planck scale to the scale of immense galactic clusters. It presents the case that Einstein's theory of gravity can describe the observed dynamics of galaxies without invoking the unknown “dark matter” required in models based on... more...

#### Special Relativity and Motions Faster than Light

Wiley 2008; US$ 89.00While the theory of special relativity is often associated with the idea of traveling faster than light, this book shows that in all these cases subtle forces of nature conspire to prevent these motions being harnessed to send signals faster than the speed of light. The author tackles these topics both conceptually, with minimal or no mathematics,... more...

#### Rotating Fields in General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 1985; US$ 36.00The aim of this book is to introduce the reader to research work on a particular aspect of rotating fields in general relativity. more...

#### Directions in General Relativity: Volume 1

Cambridge University Press 1993; US$ 78.00Proceedings of the International Symposium on General Relativity, University of Maryland, March 1993. more...

#### Special Relativity

Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 16.99Special relativity provides the foundations of our knowledge of space and time. Without it, our understanding of the world, and its place in the universe, would be unthinkable. This book gives a concise, elementary, yet exceptionally modern, introduction to special relativity. It is a gentle yet serious 'first encounter', in that it conveys... more...

#### Albert Einstein Memorial Lectures

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 101.00This volume consists of a selection of the Albert Einstein Memorial Lectures presented annually at the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities. Delivered by eminent scientists and scholars, including Nobel laureates, they cover a broad spectrum of subjects in physics, chemistry, life science, mathematics, historiography and social issues. This distinguished... more...

#### The Geometry of Special Relativity - a Concise Course

Springer 2012; US$ 49.95#### Quantum Physics Without Quantum Philosophy

Springer 2012; US$ 149.00It has often been claimed that without drastic conceptual innovations a genuine explanation of quantum interference effects and quantum randomness is impossible. This book concerns Bohmian mechanics, a simple particle theory that is a counterexample to such claims. The gentle introduction and other contributions collected here show how the phenomena... more...

#### BLACK HOLES, COSMOLOGY AND EXTRA DIMENSIONS

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 176.00Assuming foundational knowledge of special and general relativity, this book guides the reader on issues surrounding black holes, wormholes, cosmology, and extra dimensions. Its first part is devoted to local strong field configurations (black holes and wormholes) in general relativity and the most relevant of alternative theories: scalar–tensor,... more...
