#### Energy And Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 79.00Special Relativity (SR) is essentially grounded on the properties of space-time, i.e. isotropy of space and homogeneity of space and time (as a consequence of the equivalence of inertial frames) and on the Galilei principle of relativity. more...

#### Introduction to Mesoscopic Physics

Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 224.99"Mesoscopic physics" refers to the physics of structures larger than a nanometer (one billionth of a meter) but smaller than a micrometer (one millionth of a meter). This size range is the stage on which the exciting new research on submicroscopic and electronic and mechanical devices is being done. This research often crosses the boundary between... more...

#### The Classical And Quantum Dynamics Of The Multispherical Nanostructures

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 140.00In this book, the issues regarding the theory of optics and quantum optics of spherical multilayered systems are studied. In such systems the spatial scale of layers becomes comparable with the wavelength of radiation, which complicates the analysis of important quantities such as reflectivity and transmission. more...

#### The Electromagnetic Origin Of Quantum Theory And Light (2nd Edition)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 131.00Bell anchored the logic chain begun by Einstein, Rosen, and Podolsky and tested by Aspect et al. , showing that entangled electrons are nonlocal. Feynman showed that free electrons are nonlocal in that they travel between any two points using all possible paths. more...

#### Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots

Wiley 2005; US$ 80.00Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots Second Edition: Theoretical and Computational Physics of Semiconductor Nanostructures provides all the essential information, both theoretical and computational, for complete beginners to develop an understanding of how the electronic, optical and transport properties of quantum wells, wires and dots are calculated.... more...

#### General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 84.00An advanced textbook providing a clear mathematical introduction to general relativity and its physical applications. more...

#### Programming the Universe

Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2006; US$ 16.00Is the universe actually a giant quantum computer? According to Seth Lloyd, the answer is yes. All interactions between particles in the universe, Lloyd explains, convey not only energy but also information?in other words, particles not only collide, they compute. What is the entire universe computing, ultimately? ?Its own dynamical evolution,? he... more...

#### Feynman's Thesis - A New Approach To Quantum Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 15.00Richard Feynman?s never previously published doctoral thesis formed the heart of much of his brilliant and profound work in theoretical physics. Entitled ?The Principle of Least Action in Quantum Mechanics,? its original motive was to quantize the classical action-at-a-distance electrodynamics. Because that theory adopted an overall space?time viewpoint,... more...

#### First-principles Calculations In Real-space Formalism

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 116.00With cutting-edge materials and minute electronic devices being produced by the latest nanoscale fabrication technology, it is essential for scientists and engineers to rely on first-principles (ab initio) calculation methods to fully understand the electronic configurations and transport properties of nanostructures. It is now imperative to introduce... more...

#### Gravity and Strings

Cambridge University Press 1753; US$ 120.00A self-contained pedagogical exposition of the theory of quantum gravity provided by string theory, first published in 2004. more...
