#### The Little Book of String Theory

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 19.95The 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... more...

#### Particles and Fundamental Interactions

Springer 2011; US$ 89.95The book provides theoretical and phenomenological insights on the structure of matter, presenting concepts and features of elementary particle physics and fundamental aspects of nuclear physics. Starting with the basics (nomenclature, classification, acceleration techniques, detection of elementary particles), the properties of fundamental interactions... more...

#### Particles and Fundamental Interactions: Supplements, Problems and Solutions

Springer 2012; US$ 59.95This volume is an exercises and solutions manual that complements the book "Particles and Fundamental Interactions" by Sylvie Braibant, Giorgio Giacomelli, and Maurizio Spurio. It aims to give additional intellectual stimulation for students in experimental particle physics. It will be a helpful companion in the preparation of a written... more...

#### Basic Concepts of String Theory

Springer 2012; US$ 99.00The purpose of this book is to thoroughly prepare the reader for research in string theory at an intermediate level. As such it is not a compendium of results but intended as textbook in the sense that most of the material is organized in a pedagogical and self-contained fashion. Beyond the basics, a number of more advanced topics are introduced, such... more...

#### Supercomputing, Collision Processes, and Applications

Springer 1999; US$ 193.00A survey of recent developments in many areas of atomic and molecular collision physics, applications, and scientific disciplines in which supercomputers play a central role. The work also logs 40 years' scientific contributions by Professor P.G. Burke, up to his retirement in 1998. more...

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

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 60.00High-level book on cold and ultracold collisions in physics. 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...

#### A First Course in String Theory
