#### Quantum Field Theory

Wiley 2013; US$ 57.00Following 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...

#### The Ultimate Constituents of the Material World

De Gruyter 2010; US$ 168.00Today, quantum field theory (QFT)?the mathematical and conceptual framework for contemporary elementary particle physics?is the best starting point for analysing the fundamental building blocks of the material world. QFT if taken seriously in its metaphysical implications yields a picture of the world that is at variance with central classical... more...

#### Quantum Fields in Curved Space

Cambridge University Press 1982; US$ 72.00This 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...

#### 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...

#### The Quantum Rules

Skyhorse Publishing 2015; US$ 16.99Learn how quantum physics affects your daily life and learn practical ways to put that knowledge to good use! Ever feel guilty that you always seem to seek the easiest and shortest way to accomplish something? And why is it so satisfying to drive along a road hitting every green light as if by magic? The Quantum Rules applies the laws of physics... more...

#### New Developments in Quantum Field Theory

Springer 1998; US$ 185.00Comprising the proceedings of the NATO Scientific and Environmental Affairs Division-sponsored workshop addressing recent developments in quantum field theory, this volume contains 27 contributions covering such topics as quantized theories of gravity; string theory; conformal field theory; cosmolog more...

#### A Story Of Light

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 92.00This book presents the essential aspects of relativistic quantum field theory, with minimal use of mathematics. It covers the development of quantum field theory from the original quantization of electromagnetic field to the gauge field theory of interactions among quarks and leptons. more...

#### Quantum-Statistical Models of Hot Dense Matter

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 209.00In the processes studied in contemporary physics one encounters the most diverse conditions: temperatures ranging from absolute zero to those found in the cores of stars, and densities ranging from those of gases to densities tens of times larger than those of a solid body. Accordingly, the solution of many problems of modern physics requires an increasingly... more...

#### Introduction to Quantum Field Theory

CRC Press 2000; US$ 172.95This text explains the features of quantum and statistical field systems that result from their field-theoretic nature and are common to different physical contexts. It supplies the practical tools for carrying out calculations and discusses the meaning of the results. The central concept is that of effective action (or free energy), and the main technical... 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...
