#### Relativity Demystified

McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 23.00In Relativity Demystified a physicist explains Einstein's theory of relativity in layman's terms, minus heavy-duty discussion or formal mathematics. Author David McMahon gradually builds up readers' practical skills to a point where they can eventually solve real problems in the field of general relativity. The book offers examples that vary in... more...

#### Quantum Physics for Scientists and Technologists

Wiley 2011; US$ 139.00 US$ 120.47Quantum Physics for Scientists and Technologists is a self-contained, comprehensive review of this complex branch of science. The book demystifies difficult concepts and views the subject through non-physics fields such as computer science, biology, chemistry, and nanotechnology. It explains key concepts and phenomena in the language of non-physics... more...

#### The Geometry of Special Relativity

CRC Press 2012; US$ 43.95The Geometry of Special Relativity provides an introduction to special relativity that encourages readers to see beyond the formulas to the deeper geometric structure. The text treats the geometry of hyperbolas as the key to understanding special relativity. This approach replaces the ubiquitous ? symbol of most standard treatments with the appropriate... more...

#### The Nature of Space and Time

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 14.95 US$ 13.60Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. But was he right? Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein?s general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united into a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined?... more...

#### The Flow Equation Approach to Many-Particle Systems

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 182.76Overthepastdecade,the?owequationmethodhasdevelopedintoanewv- satile theoretical approach to quantum many-body physics. Its basic concept was conceived independently by Wegner [1] and by G lazek and Wilson [2, 3]: the derivation of a unitary ?ow that makes a many-particle Hamiltonian - creasingly energy-diagonal. This concept can be seen as a generalization... more...
