#### Gauge Fields

World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 52.00 US$ 47.32This volume reviews the most recent progress on new exact solutions of the Yang-Mills SU(2) gauge field equations. In order to have a better understanding of the physical meaning of the Yang-Mills fields, the motion of a particle in these fields, first in general and then, in particular fields were discussed. more...

#### Gravitation: Sl(2,C) Gauge Theory and Conservation Laws

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 39.00 US$ 35.49This monograph gives a comprehensive presentation of the SL(2,C) Gauge Theory of Gravitation along with some recent developments in the problem of Conservation Laws in General Relativity. Emphasis is put on quadratic Lagrangians which yield the Einstein field equations, as compared with Hilbert's original linear Langrangian, thus gravitation... more...

#### Some Elementary Gauge Theory Concepts

World Scientific Publishing Company 1993; US$ 29.00 US$ 26.39Gauge theory, which underlies modern particle physics as well as the theory of gravity, and hence all of physics as we know it today, is itself based on a few fundamental concepts, the consequences of which are often as beautiful as they are deep. Unfortunately, in view of the pressure to cover aspects of the theory that are necessary for its many... more...

#### Nuclear Physics

Wiley 2013; US$ 67.00 US$ 60.30This title provides the latest information on nuclear physics. Based on a course entitled Applications of Nuclear Physics. Written from an experimental point of view this text is broadly divided into two parts, firstly a general introduction to Nuclear Physics and secondly its applications. * Includes chapters on practical examples and problems *... more...

#### Gauge Theories of the Strong, Weak, and Electromagnetic Interactions

Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 82.50 US$ 75.08This completely revised and updated graduate-level textbook is an ideal introduction to gauge theories and their applications to high-energy particle physics, and takes an in-depth look at two new laws of nature--quantum chromodynamics and the electroweak theory. From quantum electrodynamics through unified theories of the interactions among leptons... more...

#### Lattice Gauge Theories and Monte Carlo Simulations

World Scientific Publishing Company 1983; US$ 59.00 US$ 53.69This volume is the most up-to-date review on Lattice Gauge Theories and Monte Carlo Simulations. It consists of two parts. Part one is an introductory lecture on the lattice gauge theories in general, Monte Carlo techniques and on the results to date. Part two consists of important original papers in this field. These selected reprints involve the... more...

#### Gauge Theories, Applied Supersymmetry and Quantum Gravity II

World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 124.00 US$ 112.84This volume contains the proceedings of a meeting held at Imperial College which is devoted to recent developments in string theory, supersymmetry and quantum gravity. The volume comprises two different sections. The first consists of five pedagogical reviews by prominent physicists, covering the currently important subjects of supermembranes, duality,... more...

#### Lattice Gauge Theories

World Scientific Publishing Company 1992; US$ 43.00 US$ 39.13This book introduces a large number of topics in lattice gauge theories, including analytical as well as numerical methods. It provides young physicists with the theoretical background and basic computational tools in order to be able to follow the extensive literature on the subject, and to carry out research on their own. Whenever possible, the basic... more...

#### Itep Lectures on Particle Physics and Field Theory (In 2 Vols)

World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 102.00 US$ 92.82This book traces the development of ideas about the origin of the Solar System from ancient times to the present day. A survey of more modern ideas, covering the last 200 years or so, highlights the difficulties experienced by theories and also points the way towards the development of a more successful theory. In particular, the current “standard... more...

#### Space-Time-Matter

World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 26.00 US$ 23.66Einstein endorsed the view of Kaluza that gravity could be combined with electromagnetism if the dimensionality of the world is extended from 4 to 5. Klein applied this idea to quantum theory, laying a basis for the various modern versions of string theory. Recently, work by a group of researchers has resulted in a coherent formulation of 5D relativity,... more...
