#### Introduction to the Replica Theory of Disordered Statistical Systems

Cambridge University Press 2000; US$ 58.00An introductory book on the statistical mechanics of disordered systems, ideal for graduates and researchers. more...

#### Introduction to Quantum Fields on a Lattice

Cambridge University Press 2002; US$ 56.00Clear and pedagogical introduction to quantum fields on a lattice, for advanced undergraduates and graduates. more...

#### Discrete Integrable Systems

Springer 2010; US$ 179.00This book is devoted to Quisped, Roberts, and Thompson (QRT) maps, considered as automorphisms of rational elliptic surfaces. The theory of QRT maps arose from problems in mathematical physics, involving difference equations. The application of QRT maps to these and other problems in the literature, including Poncelet mapping and the elliptic billiard,... more...

#### Separable Boundary-Value Problems in Physics

Wiley 2011; US$ 145.00 US$ 125.67Innovative developments in science and technology require a thorough knowledge of applied mathematics, particularly in the field of differential equations and special functions. These are relevant in modeling and computing applications of electromagnetic theory and quantum theory, e.g. in photonics and nanotechnology. The problem of solving partial... more...

#### Lectures on Advanced Mathematical Methods for Physicists

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 78.00 US$ 70.98This book presents a survey of Topology and Differential Geometry and also, Lie Groups and Algebras, and their Representations. The first topic is indispensable to students of gravitation and related areas of modern physics, (including string theory) while the second has applications in gauge theory and particle physics, integrable systems and nuclear... more...

#### Quantum Theory of Condensed Matter

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 37.00 US$ 33.67Ever since 1911, the Solvay Conferences have shaped modern physics. The 24th edition chaired by Bertrand Halperin did not break the tradition. Held in October 2008, it gathered in Brussels most of the leading figures working on the quantum theory of condensed matter, addressing some of the most profound open problems in the field. The proceedings contain... more...

#### XVIth International Congress on Mathematical Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 142.00 US$ 129.22The International Congress on Mathematical Physics is the flagship conference in this exciting field. Convening every three years, it gives a survey on the progress achieved in all branches of mathematical physics. It also provides a superb platform to discuss challenges and new ideas. The present volume collects material from the XVIth ICMP which... more...

#### Perspectives on Supersymmetry II

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 55.00 US$ 50.05Supersymmetry is at an exciting stage of development. It extends the Standard Model of particle physics into a more powerful theory that both explains more and allows more questions to be addressed. Most importantly, it opens a window for studying and testing fundamental theories at the Planck scale. Experimentally we are finally entering the intensity... more...

#### Dynamical Symmetry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 46.00 US$ 41.86Whenever systems are governed by continuous chains of causes and effects, their behavior exhibits the consequences of dynamical symmetries, many of them far from obvious. "Dynamical Symmetry" introduces the reader to Sophus Lie's discoveries of the connections between differential equations and continuous groups that underlie this observation.... more...

#### Group Theory and Hopf Algebras

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 70.00 US$ 63.70This book is addressed to graduate students and research workers in theoretical physics who want a thorough introduction to group theory and Hopf algebras. It is suitable for a one-semester course in group theory or a two-semester course which also treats advanced topics. Starting from basic definitions, it goes on to treat both finite and Lie groups... more...
