#### The Special Theory of Relativity bound with Relativity: A Very Elementary Exposition

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00The Special Theory of Relativity: Based on a short course of lectures delivered in the late 1930s, this short book presents the theory of Special Relativity by formulating a redefinition of the measurement of length, and thus will appeal to students of physics who wish to think through Einstein?s thought without the encumbrance of quasi-scientific... more...

#### Introduction to Quantum Field Theory

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 164.95This text explains the features of quantum and statistical field systems that result from their field-theoretic nature and are common to different physical contexts. It supplies the practical tools for carrying out calculations and discusses the meaning of the results. The central concept is that of effective action (or free energy), and the main technical... more...

#### Particle Penetration and Radiation Effects Volume 2

Springer 2014; US$ 229.00This book represents volume 2 of a 3-volume monograph on Particle Penetration and Radiation Effects. While volume 1 addressed the basic theory of scattering and stopping of swift point charges, i.e., protons, antiprotons and alpha particles, the present volume focuses on ions heavier than helium as well as molecules and clusters over an energy range... more...

#### Space-Time Foliation in Quantum Gravity

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00In this thesis, the author considers quantum gravity to investigate the mysterious origin of our universe and its mechanisms. He and his collaborators have greatly improved the analyticity of two models: causal dynamical triangulations (CDT) and n-DBI gravity, with the space-time foliation which is one common factor shared by these two separate models.?In... more...

#### Collective Atom–Light Interactions in Dense Atomic Vapours

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00The propagation of light in 'dense media' where dipole-dipole interactions play a role is a fundamental topic that was first studied in the work of Clausius, Mossotti, Lorenz and Lorentz in the latter half of the nineteenth century. However, until recently there remained some areas of controversy: for example, whereas the Lorentz model for... more...

#### Efficient Implementation of High-Order Accurate Numerical Methods on Unstructured Grids

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00This thesis focuses on the development of high-order finite volume methods and discontinuous Galerkin methods, and presents possible solutions to a number of important and common problems encountered in high-order methods, such as the shock-capturing strategy and curved boundary treatment, then applies these methods to solve compressible flows. more...

#### Canonical Quantum Gravity

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 166.00This book aims to present a pedagogical and self-consistent treatment of the canonical approach to Quantum Gravity, starting from its original formulation to the most recent developments in the field. We start with an innovative and enlightening introduction to the formalism and concepts on which General Relativity has been built, giving all the information... more...

#### The Handbook of Graphene Electrochemistry

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00Graphene has grasped the attention of academia and industry world-wide due its unique structure and reported advantageous properties. This was reflected via the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics being awarded for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene. One particular area in which graphene has been extensively explored... more...

#### Crystal Symmetry, Lattice Vibrations, and Optical Spectroscopy of Solids

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 127.00This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the two fundamental aspects of a solid that determine its physical properties: lattice structure and atomic vibrations (phonons). The elements of group theory are extensively developed and used as a tool to show how the symmetry of a solid and the vibrations of the atoms in the solid lead to the physical... more...

#### Dynamics and Relativity

Wiley 2014; US$ 170.00A new title in the Manchester Physics Series, this introductory text emphasises physical principles behind classical mechanics and relativity. It assumes little in the way of prior knowledge, introducing relevant mathematics and carefully developing it within a physics context. Designed to provide a logical development of the subject, the book is divided... more...
