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...

#### Quantum Field Theory

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 80.00Textbook on elementary particles for graduate students studying quantum field theory and elementary particle theory. more...

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 78.00Comprehensive graduate text on subject of importance in condensed matter physics, electrical engineering and quantum chemistry. more...

#### Introduction to Surface and Superlattice Excitations

Cambridge University Press 1989; US$ 112.00An 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...

#### Quantum Theory and Reality

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 116.76The Tum of the Tide During centuries physicists were supposed to be studying the physical world. Since the turn of the century this assumption has often been challenged as naive: it was proclaimed that physics is not about the external world but about observers and their manipUlations: that it is meaningless to talk of anything else than observation... more...
