#### Modern Atomic Physics

CRC Press 2015; US$ 89.95Much of our understanding of physics in the last 30-plus years has come from research on atoms, photons, and their interactions. Collecting information previously scattered throughout the literature, Modern Atomic Physics provides students with one unified guide to contemporary developments in the field. After reviewing metrology and preliminary... more...

#### The Little Book of String Theory

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 19.95 US$ 18.15The Little Book of String Theory offers a short, accessible, and entertaining introduction to one of the most talked-about areas of physics today. String theory has been called the "theory of everything." It seeks to describe all the fundamental forces of nature. It encompasses gravity and quantum mechanics in one unifying theory. But it is unproven... more...

#### Cold and Ultracold Collisions in Quantum Microscopic and Mesoscopic Systems

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 35.00This is a high-level book on cold and ultracold collisions in physics. more...

#### Direct Nuclear Reactions

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 116.00 US$ 105.56This classic volume, reprinted twenty years after it was first published, takes a close look at the theory of direct nuclear reactions. It emphasizes the microscopic aspects of these reactions and their description in terms of the changes induced in the motion of individual nucleons, except where collective motion in nuclei gives a more succinct description. more...

#### Geometry and Physics of Branes

CRC Press 2002; US$ 231.00Branes are solitonic configurations of a string theory that are represented by extended objects in a higher-dimensional space-time. They are essential for a comprehension of the non-perturbative aspects of string theory, in particular, in connection with string dualities. From the mathematical viewpoint, branes are related to several important theories,... more...
