#### The Correspondence Principle (1918 - 1923)

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95During this period Bohr's researches had a double aim: to develop a consistent and adequate quantum theory and to explain the structures and properties of the elements of the periodic system. ``The Correspondence Principle'' contains the papers and manuscripts dealing mainly with the elaboration of the general quantum theory. more...

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

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

#### Condensed Matter Field Theory

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

#### Quantum Mechanics with Basic Field Theory

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

#### String Theory For Dummies

Wiley 2009; US$ 21.99 US$ 19.50A 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...

#### 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...

#### Classical Theory of Gauge Fields

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 130.00 US$ 118.30Based on a highly regarded lecture course at Moscow State University, this is a clear and systematic introduction to gauge field theory. It is unique in providing the means to master gauge field theory prior to the advanced study of quantum mechanics. Though gauge field theory is typically included in courses on quantum field theory, many of its ideas... more...

#### Determining Spectra in Quantum Theory

Birkhäuser Boston 2006; US$ 124.07Themainobjectiveofthisbookistogiveacollectionofcriteriaavailablein 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...

#### 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...
