#### Proceedings of the SUNY Institute of Technology Conference on Theoretical High Energy Physics

NRC Research Press 2003; US$ 120.00This proceedings is the result of the second Theoretical High Energy Physics conference held at the SUNY Institute of Technology, in conjunction with Mount Allison University. The conference was held over a 3 week period in June 2002, involving speakers from international universities. more...

#### Direct Nuclear Reactions

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 116.00This 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...

#### Statistical Mechanics Of Membranes And Surfaces

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 52.00This invaluable book explores the delicate interplay between geometry and statistical mechanics in materials such as microemulsions, wetting and growth interfaces, bulk lyotropic liquid crystals, chalcogenide glasses and sheet polymers, using tools from the fields of polymer physics, differential geometry, field theory and critical phenomena. Several... more...

#### QCD as a Theory of Hadrons

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 136.00 US$ 111.52An introduction to the basic theory and recent advances in QCD, for graduates and researchers. 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

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 84.00 US$ 68.88Accessible introduction to string theory for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. more...

#### Finite-Temperature Field Theory

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 54.00 US$ 44.28The 2006 second edition of this book develops techniques for studying relativistic field theory in particle physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. more...

#### Concepts of Particle Physics

Oxford University Press 1987; US$ 29.95 US$ 25.76Enhances the material outlined in the first volume of "Concepts of Particle Physics", presenting it in greater detail. more...

#### Concepts of Particle Physics

Oxford University Press 1986; US$ 224.99 US$ 193.49The second volume of this authoritative work traces the material outlined in the first, but in far greater detail and with a much higher degree of sophistication. The authors begin with the theory of the electromagnetic interaction, and then consider hadronic structure, exploring the accuracy of the quark model by examining the excited states of baryons... more...

#### Nuclear Dynamics in the Nucleonic Regime

CRC Press 2000; US$ 243.00Over the last decade one of the most active areas of research in nuclear physics has been the study of systems of nucleons in various dynamical situations. Heavy-ion collisions at beam energies in the range 30-150 MeV per nucleon, where subnucleaonic degrees of freedom can be considered as frozen, allow such systems to be studied in detail. Nuclear... more...
