#### 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...

#### General Relativity and the Einstein Equations

OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 144.99Aimed at researchers in mathematics and physics, this monograph, in which the author overviews the basic ideas in General Relativity, introduces the necessary mathematics and discusses some of the key open questions in the field. 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...

#### 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$ 180.61Overthepastdecade,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...

#### Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 96.00Thoroughly 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...

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 84.00 US$ 76.44Selected 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$ 273.00 US$ 236.60The 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...

#### Advances in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics

Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 250.00This volume continues the tradition of the Advances series. It contains contributions from experts in the field of atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) physics. The articles contain some review material, but are intended to provide a comprehensive picture of recent important developments in AMO physics. Both theoretical and experimental articles are... more...
