#### Angular Momentum in Quantum Physics

Cambridge University Press 1984; US$ 120.00This 1985 text develops the theory of angular momentum from the viewpoint of a fundamental symmetry in nature. more...

#### Special Relativity

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 29.00 US$ 26.39This book provides a thorough discussion of the concepts and main consequences of special relativity. Treated in detail are the Lorentz transformations, their kinematical consequences (the so-called paradoxes), relativistic mechanics, electrodynamics as an example of a relativistic field theory, and the principal features of relativistic hydrodynamics.... more...

#### The Special Theory of Relativity for Mathematics Students

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 76.00 US$ 69.16One of the problems facing mathematics and physics is that mathematicians and physicists speak languages that the others find hard to understand. These notes take a fundamental part of physics, the special theory of relativity and describe it in terms that can be understood by mathematics students who have studied the two basic undergraduate topics,... more...

#### Principles of Optics

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 84.00Principles of Optics is one of the classic science books of the twentieth century, and probably the most influential book in optics published in the past 40 years. The new edition is the first ever thoroughly revised and expanded edition of this standard text. Among the new material, much of which is not available in any other optics text, is a section... more...

#### Quantum Theory of Angular Momentum

World Scientific Publishing Company 1988; US$ 45.00 US$ 40.95This is the most complete handbook on the quantum theory of angular momentum. Containing basic definitions and theorems as well as relations, tables of formula and numerical tables which are essential for applications to many physical problems, the book is useful for specialists in nuclear and particle physics, atomic and molecular spectroscopy, plasma... more...

#### The Physics of the Standard Model and Beyond

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 102.00 US$ 92.82This book provides a unified description of elementary particle interactions and the underlying theories, namely the Standard Model and beyond. The authors have aimed at a concise presentation but have taken care that all the basic concepts are clearly described. Written primarily for graduate students in theoretical and experimental particle physics... more...

#### Differential Geometry and Kinematics of Continua

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 54.00 US$ 49.14This book provides definitions and mathematical derivations of fundamental relationships of tensor analysis encountered in nonlinear continuum mechanics and continuum physics, with a focus on finite deformation kinematics and classical differential geometry. Of particular interest are anholonomic aspects arising from a multiplicative decomposition... more...

#### Nonrelativistic Quantum X-Ray Physics

Wiley 2014; US$ 140.00 US$ 121.33Providing a solid theoretical background in photon-matter interaction, Nonrelativistic Quantum X-Ray Physics enables readers to understand experiments performed at XFEL-facilities and x-ray synchrotrons. As a result, after reading this book, scientists and students will be able to outline and perform calculations of some important x-ray-matter interaction... more...

#### Magnetohydrodynamic Turbulence

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 46.00Introduction to and modern account of magnetohydrodynamic turbulence, with astrophysical applications. more...
