#### Einstein's Dice and Schrödinger's Cat

Basic Books 2015; US$ 27.99When the fuzzy indeterminacy of quantum mechanics overthrew the orderly world of Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Erwin Schrödinger were at the forefront of the revolution. Neither man was ever satisfied with the standard interpretation of quantum mechanics, however, and both rebelled against what they considered the most preposterous aspect of quantum... more...

#### Gravity

Gerald Duckworth & Co 2012; US$ 8.74Physicists will tell you that four forces control the universe. Of these, gravity may the most obvious, but it is also the most mysterious. Newton managed to predict the force of gravity but couldn't explain how it worked at a distance. Then Einstein picked up on the simple premise that gravity and acceleration are interchangeable to devise his mind-bending... more...

#### Die Lebendige Masse

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 40.58Dieser Buchtitel ist Teil des Digitalisierungsprojekts Springer Book Archives mit Publikationen, die seit den Anfängen des Verlags von 1842 erschienen sind. Der Verlag stellt mit diesem Archiv Quellen für die historische wie auch die disziplingeschichtliche Forschung zur Verfügung, die jeweils im historischen Kontext betrachtet werden müssen. Dieser... more...

#### Introduction to the Physics of Matter

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 44.92This book offers an up-to-date, compact presentation of basic topics in the physics of matter, from atoms to molecules to solids, including elements of statistical mechanics. The adiabatic separation of the motion of electrons and nuclei in matter and its spectroscopic implications are outlined for molecules and recalled regularly in the study of the... more...

#### Bryce DeWitt's Lectures on Gravitation

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 67.38Written with clarity and authority, and edited by DeWitt?s former student Steven Christensen, these timeless lecture notes, containing material not found elsewhere, are a gem to be discovered or re-discovered by anyone interested in gravitational physics. more...

#### Fundamentals of Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 89.85This book offers systematic coverage of recent developments in time-dependent density functional theory, including basic concepts, and contemporary applications from real-time coupled-electron-ion dynamics, to excited-state dynamics and molecular transport. more...

#### N=2 Supersymmetric Dynamics for Pedestrians

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 44.92Understanding the dynamics of gauge theories is crucial, given the fact that all known interactions are based on the principle of local gauge symmetry. Beyond the perturbative regime, however, this is a notoriously difficult problem. Requiring invariance under supersymmetry turns out to be a suitable tool for analyzing supersymmetric gauge theories... more...

#### Non-perturbative Description of Quantum Systems

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 67.38This book introduces systematically the operator method for the solution of the Schrödinger equation. This method permits to describe the states of quantum systems in the entire range of parameters of Hamiltonian with a predefined accuracy. The operator method is unique compared with other non-perturbative methods due to its ability to deliver in zeroth... more...

#### Spectra and Dynamics of Small Molecules

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 33.69These seven lectures are intended to serve as an introduction for beginning graduate students to the spectra of small molecules. The author succeeds in illustrating the concepts by using language and metaphors that capture and elegantly convey simple insights into dynamics that lie beyond archival molecular constants. The lectures can simultaneously... more...

#### Integration - A Functional Approach

Springer Basel 2010; US$ 52.78This volume covers Lebesgue integration and its generalizations from Daniell's point of view, modified by the use of seminorms. The integration of functions, as opposed to the measuring of sets, is posited as the main purpose of measure theory. more...
