#### Condensed Matter Field Theory

Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 152.00 US$ 124.64A pedagogical introduction to quantum field theory in many-particle physics, this book complements graduate level courses on many-particle theory. more...

#### Concepts of Highly Excited Electronic Systems

Wiley 2006; US$ 170.00 US$ 147.33Knowledge of the excitation characteristics of matter is decisive for the descriptions of a variety of dynamical processes, which are of significant technological interest. E.g. transport properties and the optical response are controlled by the excitation spectrum. This self-contained work is a coherent presentation of the quantum theory of correlated... more...

#### Quantum Fluctuations Of Spacetime

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 109.00Three key aspects of quantum gravity are considered in this book: phenomenology, potential experimental aspects and foundational theory. The phenomenology is the treatment of metric quantum fluctuations as torsional curves that deviate from classical expectations. This leads to possible experimental configurations that may detect such fluctuations.... more...

#### Determining Spectra in Quantum Theory

Birkhäuser Boston 2006; US$ 169.00Themainobjectiveofthisbookistogiveacollectionofcriteriaavailablein the spectral theory of selfadjoint operators, and to identify the spectrum and its components in the Lebesgue decomposition. Many of these criteria were published in several articles in di?erent journals. We collected them, added some and gave some overview that can serve as a platform... more...

#### Quantum Mechanics with Basic Field Theory

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 108.00 US$ 88.56An organized, detailed approach to quantum mechanics, ideal for a two-semester graduate course on the subject. more...

#### Handbook of Quantum Logic and Quantum Structures

Elsevier Science 2009; US$ 225.00Quantum mechanics is said to be the most successful physical theory ever. It is, in fact, unique in its success when applied to concrete physical problems. On the other hand, however, it raises profound conceptual problems that are equally unprecedented. Quantum logic, the topic of this volume, can be described as an attempt to cast light on the... more...

#### The Nature of Space and Time

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 14.95 US$ 11.96Einstein 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...

#### String Theory For Dummies

Wiley 2009; US$ 21.99 US$ 17.59A clear, plain-English guide to this complex scientific theory String theory is the hottest topic in physics right now, with books on the subject (pro and con) flying out of the stores. String Theory For Dummies offers an accessible introduction to this highly mathematical "theory of everything," which posits ten or more dimensions in an attempt... more...

#### Nonlinear Time Series Analysis

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 72.00 US$ 59.04New edition of a successful advanced text on nonlinear time series analysis. more...

#### Basic Aspects of the Quantum Theory of Solids

Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 80.00 US$ 65.60Presents the main concepts and essential theoretical methods of the modern quantum theory of solids for graduate students and researchers. more...
