#### Integrable Quantum Field Theories and Their Applications

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 144.00 US$ 131.04This volume includes several lecture notes on the fundamentals and elementary techniques of integrable field theories and on their applications to low-dimensional physics systems contributed by leading scientists in the respective fields. The main topics covered are various aspects of the thermodynamic Bethe ansatz, form factors, Calogero (and related)... more...

#### Teleparallel Gravity

Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 97.74This is the first book devoted to teleparallel Gravity (TG), an alternative theory for gravitation, which is equivalent to General Relativity (GR). Shows how TG attributes gravitation to torsion, which accounts for gravitation by acting as a force. more...

#### Recent Developments in Quantum Field Theory

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Theoretical particle physicists discuss the present status and, in particular, the latest developments in quantum field theory, in their broadest aspects. This volume contains the main lectures presented at the symposium and reflects the contemporary status of a line of development, one of whose initiators was Niels Bohr. more...

#### How Is Quantum Field Theory Possible?

Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 224.99How can we know the microscopic world without a measurement theory? What are the general conditions of the world that make possible such knowledge? What are the presuppositions of physical theories? This book includes an analysis of quantum field theory, and quantum mechanics and interacting systems are addressed in a unified framework. more...

#### Proceedings Of The Dirac Centennial Symposium

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 112.00 US$ 101.92Paul Adrian Maurice Dirac (1902?84) is one of the icons of modern physics. His work provided the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics. He also made key contributions to quantum field theory and quantum statistical mechanics. He is perhaps best known for formulating the Dirac equation, a relativistic wave equation which described the properties... more...

#### QUANTIZED ALGEBRA AND PHYSICS

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 78.00 US$ 70.98The book aims to survey recent developments in quantum algebras and related topics. Quantum groups were introduced by Drinfeld and Jimbo in 1985 in their work on Yang–Baxter equations. The subject from the very beginning has been an interesting one for both mathematics and theoretical physics. For example, Yangian is a special example of quantum... more...

#### Modern Quantum Field Theory

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 68.00Introduction to field theory for graduates in high energy physics and condensed matter physics. more...

#### An introduction to relativistic processes and the standard model of electroweak interactions

Springer Milan 2008; US$ 38.00The natural framework of high-energy physics is relativistic quantum ?eld theory. This is a complex subject, and it is di?cult to illustrate it in all its aspects within a normal undergraduate course in particle physics, while devoting a su?cient attention to phenomenological aspects. However, in the small-wavelength limit, the semi-classical approximation... more...

#### Quantum Topology and Global Anomalies

World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 76.00 US$ 69.16Anomalies are ubiquitous features in quantum field theories. They can ruin the consistency of such theories and put significant restrictions on their viability, especially in dimensions higher than four. Global gauge and gravitational anomalies are to date, one of the scant powerful and probing tools available to physicists in the pursuit of uniqueness.This... more...

#### Quantum Fields in Curved Space

Cambridge University Press 1984; US$ 74.00This book presents a comprehensive review of the subject of gravitational effects in quantum field theory. Although the treatment is general, special emphasis is given to the Hawking black hole evaporation effect, and to particle creation processes in the early universe. The last decade has witnessed a phenomenal growth in this subject. This is the... more...
