#### Mathematical Methods of Many-Body Quantum Field Theory

CRC Press 2004; US$ 154.95Mathematical Methods of Many-Body Quantum Field Theory offers a comprehensive, mathematically rigorous treatment of many-body physics. It develops the mathematical tools for describing quantum many-body systems and applies them to the many-electron system. These tools include the formalism of second quantization, field theoretical perturbation theory,... more...

#### Weak Scale Supersymmetry

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 60.00A comprehensive, practical and accessible 2006 introduction to supersymmetry for particle physicists and graduate students. more...

#### Gravitation

CRC Press 2004; US$ 231.00Although gravity is the dominant force of nature at large distances (from intermediate scales to the Hubble length), it is the weakest of forces in particle physics, though it is believed to become important again at very short scales (the Planck length). The conditions created in particle accelerators are similar to those at the time of the early... more...

#### The Quantum Physicists

Oxford University Press 1970; US$ 59.99And an introduction to their physics. more...

#### Out of the Crystal Maze

Oxford University Press 1992; US$ 279.99This landmark work chronicles the origin and evolution of solid state physics, which grew to maturity between 1920 and 1960. The book examines the early roots of the field in industrial, scientific and artistic efforts and traces them through the 1950s, when many physicists around the world recognized themselves as members of a distinct subfield of... more...

#### Quaternionic Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Fields

Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 279.99It has been known since the 1930s that quantum mechanics can be formulated in quaternionic as well as complex Hilbert space. But systematic work on the quaternionic extension of standard quantum mechanics has scarcely begun. Authored by a world-renowned theoretical physicist, this book signals a major conceptual advance and gives a detailed development... more...

#### An Introduction to General Relativity and Cosmology

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 56.00This 2006 book is a thorough introduction to general relativity for advanced students, including complete derivations of important results. more...

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

Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 250.00Benjamin Bederson contributed to the world of physics in many areas: in atomic physics, where he achieved renown by his scattering and polarizability experiments, as the Editor-in-Chief for the American Physical Society, where he saw the introduction of electronic publishing and a remarkable growth of the APS journals, with ever increasing world-wide... more...

#### Density-Functional Theory of Atoms and Molecules

Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 55.00Provides an account of the fundamental principles of the density-functional theory of the electronic structure of matter and its applications to atoms and molecules. This book contains a discussion of the chemical potential and its derivatives. It is intended for physicists, chemists, and advanced students in chemistry. more...

#### Quantentheorie

De Gruyter 2006; US$ 56.00Gives attention to the conceptual fundamentals of quantum theory and, inter alia, to the quantum mechanical measurement process and Bell's inequalities. This textbook for students of physics is geared towards the content of a two-semester course of lectures on quantum theory. more...
