#### Testing Quantum Mechanics on New Ground

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 47.00Simple accounts of experiments which test the counterintuitive and bizarre consequences of quantum theory. more...

#### The Non-Local Universe

Oxford University Press, USA 2001; US$ 19.99Classical physics states that physical reality is local, or that a measurement at one point in space cannot cannot influence what occurs at another beyond a fairly short distance. Until recently this seemed like an immutable truth in nature. However, in 1997 experiments were conducted in which light particles (photons) originated under certain conditions... more...

#### A First Course in General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 72.00Second edition of a widely-used textbook providing the first step into general relativity for undergraduate students with minimal mathematical background. more...

#### Introduction to Surface and Superlattice Excitations

Cambridge University Press 1989; US$ 138.00An introduction to the properties of wavelike excitations associated with surfaces and interfaces. The emphasis is on acoustic, optic, and magnetic excitations, and, apart from one section on liquid surfaces, the text concentrates on solids. The important topic of superlattices is also discussed, in which the different kinds of excitation are considered... more...

#### Laser Surface Modification and Adhesion

Wiley 2014; US$ 195.00The book provides a unique overview on laser techniques and applications for the purpose of improving adhesion by altering surface chemistry and topography/morphology of the substrate. It details laser surface modification techniques for a wide range of industrially relevant materials (plastics, metals, ceramics, composites) with the aim to improve... more...

#### Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativity

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativity provides readers with a coherent path to understanding relativity. Requiring little more than calculus and some linear algebra, it helps readers learn just enough differential geometry to grasp the basics of general relativity. The book contains two intertwined but distinct halves. ... more...

#### Measurement of the Inclusive Electron Cross-Section from Heavy-Flavour Decays and Search for Compressed Supersymmetric Scenarios with the ATLAS Experiment

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00The first part of this thesis presents the measurement of the inclusive cross-section for electron production from heavy-flavour decays in the electron transverse momentum range 7 GeV< pT< 26 GeV using 1.3 pb?1 of 7 TeV proton-proton collision data collected by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider in 2010. The measured value of the... more...

#### Introduction to General Relativity, Black Holes and Cosmology

Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 43.99General Relativity is a beautiful geometric theory, simple in its mathematical formulation but leading to numerous consequences with striking physical interpretations: gravitational waves, black holes, cosmological models, and so on. This introductory textbook is written for mathematics students interested in physics and physics students interested... more...

#### Frontiers of Fundamental Physics

Springer 2007; US$ 239.00The Sixth International Symposium "Frontiers of Fundamental and Computational Physics", Udine, Italy, 26-29 September 2004, aimed at providing a platform for a range of physicists to meet and share thoughts on the trends in cross-disciplinary research areas. This book contains contributions by Nobel Laureates Leon N Cooper and Gerard t Hooft. more...
