#### The Black Hole War

Little, Brown and Company 2008; US$ 9.99What happens when something is sucked into a black hole? Does it disappear? Three decades ago, a young physicist named Stephen Hawking claimed it did-and in doing so put at risk everything we know about physics and the fundamental laws of the universe. Most scientists didn't recognize the import of Hawking's claims, but Leonard Susskind and Gerard... more...

#### Nonequilibrium Quantum Field Theory

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 88.00Reference for graduate students and researchers in particle physics, gravitation, cosmology, atomic-optical and condensed matter physics. more...

#### On the Emergence Theme of Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 84.00The book surveys mathematical relations between classical and quantum mechanics, gravity, time and thermodynamics from various points of view and many sources (with appropriate attribution). The emergence theme is developed with an emphasis on the meaning via mathematics. A background theme of Bohemian mechanics and connections to the quantum equivalence... more...

#### Efficient Quadrature Rules for Illumination Integrals

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2015; US$ 36.00Rendering photorealistic images is a costly process which can take up to several days in the case of high quality images. In most cases, the task of sampling the incident radiance function to evaluate the illumination integral is responsible for an important share of the computation time. Therefore, to reach acceptable rendering times, the illumination... more...

#### Quantum Metrology

Wiley 2015; US$ 190.00The International System of Units (SI) is the world's most widely used system of measurement, used every day in commerce and science, and is the modern form of the metric system. It currently comprises the meter (m), the kilogram (kg), the second (s), the ampere (A), the kelvin (K), the candela (cd) and the mole (mol)). The system is changing though,... more...

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

Springer 2006; US$ 179.00This self-contained monograph addresses the flow equation approach to many-particle systems. The flow equation approach consists of a sequence of infinitesimal unitary transformations and is conceptually similar to renormalization and scaling methods. Flow equations provide a framework for analyzing Hamiltonian systems where these conventional many-body... more...

#### Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 108.00Thoroughly revised and updated introduction to special and general relativity, with exercises and extensive bibliography. more...

#### Exact Space-Times in Einstein's General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 80.00This book explores concepts within general relativity in the context of the particular space-times in which they arise. more...

#### Selected Topics in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 136.00Selected Topics in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology contains a collection of papers in the subfields of scanning probe microscopy, nanofabrication, functional nanoparticles and nanomaterials, molecular engineering and bionanotechnology. Written by experts in their respective fields, it is intended for a general scientific readership who may be non-specialists... more...

#### Multidimensional Quantum Dynamics

Wiley 2009; US$ 265.00The first book dedicated to this new and powerful computational method begins with a comprehensive description of MCTDH and its theoretical background. There then follows a discussion of recent extensions of MCTDH, such as the treatment of identical particles, leading to the MCTDHF and MCTDHB methods for fermions and bosons. The third section presents... more...
