#### From Photons to Higgs

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 81.00This book presents a brief introduction to the quantum field theory of the Standard Model for quarks and leptons. With minimal use of mathematics, it covers the basics of quantum field theory, local gauge field theory, spontaneous symmetry breaking mechanism, the Higgs mechanism and quantum chromodynamics. From the time when the first edition was published... more...

#### Portrait of Gunnar Källén

Springer 2013; US$ 99.00Wolfgang Pauli referred to him as 'my discovery,' Robert Oppenheimer described him as 'one of the most gifted theorists' and Niels Bohr found him enormously stimulating. Who was the man in question, Gunnar Kallen (1926-1968)" His appearance in the physics sky was like a shooting star. His contributions to the scientific debate... more...

#### Fundamental Problems in Quantum Field Theory

Bentham Science Publishers 2013; US$ 39.00Quantum physics is based on four fundamental interactions of electromagnetic, weak, gravitational and strong forces. All the interactions are expressed in terms of fermion and boson fields which can describe the quantum states of electrons, nucleons and photons in atoms or nuclei. Correct behaviors of these particles can now be described by the basic... more...

#### Quantum Field Theory

Wiley 2013; US$ 55.00Following on from the successful first (1984) and revised (1993) editions, this extended and revised text is designed as a short and simple introduction to quantum field theory for final year physics students and for postgraduate students beginning research in theoretical and experimental particle physics. The three main objectives of the book are... more...

#### Structural Aspects of Quantum Field Theory (In 2 Volumes)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 257.00This book is devoted to the subject of quantum field theory. It is dividedinto two volumes. The first can serve as a textbook on the main techniques and results of quantum field theory, while the second treats more recent developments, in particular the subject of quantum groups and noncommutative geometry, and their interrelation.The first volume... more...

#### Geometrical and Algebraic Aspects of Nonlinear Field Theory

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Experts in general relativity, particle physics and mathematical physics discuss aspects of their recent research. The main emphasis is on the geometrical and algebraic methods used in solving a wide range of problems. more...

#### Teleparallel Gravity

Springer 2012; US$ 129.00Teleparallel Gravity (TG) is an alternative theory for gravitation, which is equivalent to General Relativity (GR). However, it is conceptually different. For example in GR geometry replaces the concept of force, and the trajectories are determined by geodesics. TG attributes gravitation to torsion, which accounts for gravitation by acting as a force.... more...

#### Theory of Interacting Quantum Fields

De Gruyter 2012; US$ 196.00This monograph is devoted to the systematic and encyclopedic presentation of the foundations of quantum field theory. It represents mathematical problems of the quantum field theory with regardto the new methods of the constructive and Euclidean field theory formed for the last thirty years of the 20th century on the basis of rigorous mathematical... more...

#### The Thermodynamics of Quantum Yang-mills Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 166.00This book aims to provide advanced students and researchers with the text on a nonperturbative, thermodynamically grounded, and largely analytical approach to four-dimensional Quantum Gauge Theory. The terrestrial, astrophysical, and cosmological applications, mostly within the realm of low-temperature photon physics, are treated. more...

#### The Infinity Puzzle

Basic Books 2011; US$ 28.99Speculation is rife that by 2012 the elusive Higgs boson will be found at the Large Hadron Collider. If found, the Higgs boson would help explain why everything has mass. But there?s more at stake?what we?re really testing is our capacity to make the universe reasonable. Our best understanding of physics is predicated on something known as quantum... more...
