#### Condensed Matter Field Theory

Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 152.00A pedagogical introduction to quantum field theory in many-particle physics, this book complements graduate level courses on many-particle theory. more...

#### Relativity Demystified

McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 23.00In Relativity Demystified a physicist explains Einstein's theory of relativity in layman's terms, minus heavy-duty discussion or formal mathematics. Author David McMahon gradually builds up readers' practical skills to a point where they can eventually solve real problems in the field of general relativity. The book offers examples that vary in... more...

#### The Geometry of Special Relativity

CRC Press 2012; US$ 43.95The Geometry of Special Relativity provides an introduction to special relativity that encourages readers to see beyond the formulas to the deeper geometric structure. The text treats the geometry of hyperbolas as the key to understanding special relativity. This approach replaces the ubiquitous ? symbol of most standard treatments with the appropriate... more...

#### The Nature of Space and Time

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 14.95 US$ 13.60Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. But was he right? Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein?s general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united into a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined?... more...

#### Transport in Nanostructures

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 92.00A comprehensive, detailed description of the properties and behaviour of mesoscopic devices. more...

#### Exact Space-Times in Einstein's General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 80.00This book explores concepts within general relativity in the context of the particular space-times in which they arise. more...

#### Practical Relativity

Wiley 2011; US$ 71.95 US$ 62.36The book is intended to serve as lecture material for courses on relativity at undergraduate level. Although there has been much written on special relativity the present book will emphasize the real applications of relativity. In addition, it will be physically designed with the use of box summaries so as to allow easy access of practical results.... more...

#### Space-Time Structure

Cambridge University Press 1985; US$ 36.00In response to repeated requests this classic book on space-time structure by Professor Erwin Schrödinger is now available in the Cambridge Science Classics series. First published in 1950, and reprinted in 1954 and 1960, this lucid and profound exposition of Einstein's 1915 theory of gravitation still provides valuable reading for students and research... more...
