#### 100 Years Of Gravity And Accelerated Frames

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 158.00 US$ 137.46This collection of papers presents ideas and problems arising over the past 100 years regarding classical and quantum gravity, gauge theories of gravity, and spacetime transformations of accelerated frames. Both Einstein's theory of gravity and the Yang?Mills theory are gauge invariant. The invariance principles in physics have transcended both kinetic... more...

#### 100 Years Of Relativity

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 79.00 US$ 68.73Thanks to Einstein's relativity theories, our notions of space and time underwent profound revisions about a 100 years ago. The resulting interplay between geometry and physics has dominated all of fundamental physics since then. This volume contains contributions from leading researchers, worldwide, who have thought deeply about the nature and consequences... more...

#### 100 Years of Planck's Quantum

World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 152.00 US$ 132.24This invaluable book takes the reader from Planck's discovery of the quantum in 1900 to the most recent interpretations and applications of nonrelativistic quantum mechanics.The introduction of the quantum idea leads off the prehistory of quantum mechanics, featuring Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Compton, and de Broglie's immortal contributions.... more...

#### 150 Years of Quantum Many-Body Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 144.00 US$ 125.28In July 2000 a conference was held to honour the 65th birthdays of four of the leading international figures in the field of quantum many-body theory. The joint research careers of John Clark, Alpo Kallio, Manfred Ristig and Sergio Rosati total some 150 years, and this festschrift celebrated their achievements. These cover a remarkably wide spectrum.... more...
