#### Advances In Classical Field Theory

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 44.00Classical field theory is employed by physicists to describe a wide variety of physical phenomena. These include electromagnetism, fluid dynamics, gravitation and quantum mechanics. The central entity of field theory is the field which is usually a multi component function of space and time. Those multi component functions are usually grouped together... more...

#### Aspects of Quantum Field Theory in Curved Spacetime

Cambridge University Press 1989; US$ 72.00The theory of quantum fields on curved spacetimes has attracted great attention since the discovery, by Stephen Hawking, of black-hole evaporation. It remains an important subject for the understanding of such contemporary topics as inflationary cosmology, quantum gravity and superstring theory. This book provides, for mathematicians, an introduction... more...

#### Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Field Theory

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 48.00Multi-author volume on the history and philosophy of physics. more...

#### Discrete Gauge Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 86.00This book provides an introduction to topological quantum field theory as well as discrete gauge theory with quantum groups. In contrast to much of the existing literature, the present approach is at the same time intuitive and mathematically rigorous, making extensive use of suitable diagrammatic methods. It provides a highly unified description of... more...

#### Finite Temperature Field Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 61.00This book discusses all three formalisms used in the study of finite temperature field theory, namely the imaginary time formalism, the closed time formalism and thermofield dynamics. Applications of the formalisms are worked out in detail. Gauge field theories and symmetry restoration at finite temperature are among the practical examples discussed... more...

#### From Photons to Higgs

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 21.00This 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### The Infinity Puzzle

Basic Books 2011; US$ 19.99Speculation 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...
