  • Telescopes: A Very Short Introductionby Geoff Cottrell

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 7.99 US$ 7.19

    Geoffrey Cottrell describes the rise of telescopes from early optical examples to the sophisticated range of modern telescopes on Earth and in space, opening up the cosmos in views from radio waves to gamma rays. Looking forward, he discusses the possibilities of the new generation of telescopes in construction today. more...

  • Theory of Gravitational Interactionsby Maurizio Gasperini

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 52.85

    This up-to-date, self-contained review of the theory of gravitational interactions presents a traditional introduction, then discuss analogies and differences between a geometric theory of gravity and the gauge theories of the other fundamental interactions. more...

  • On the Heavensby Aristotle

    Dancing Unicorn Books 2016; US$ 1.99

    THE science which has to do with nature clearly concerns itself for the most part with bodies and magnitudes and their properties and movements, but also with the principles of this sort of substance, as many as they may be. For of things constituted by nature some are bodies and magnitudes, some possess body and magnitude, and some are principles... more...

  • Searching for Dark Matter with the ATLAS Detectorby Steven Schramm

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 91.98

    This thesis describes the search for Dark Matter at the LHC in the mono-jet plus missing transverse momentum final state, using the full dataset recorded in 2012 by the ATLAS Experiment.  It is the first time that the number of jets is not explicitly restricted to one or two, thus increasing the sensitivity to new signals.  Instead, a balance... more...

  • Introduction to Cosmologyby Barbara Ryden

    Cambridge University Press 2016; US$ 40.00

    A substantial update of this award-winning and highly regarded cosmology textbook, for advanced undergraduates in physics and astronomy. more...

  • Surveys in Theoretical High Energy Physics - 2by Raghavan Rangarajan; M. Sivakumar

    Springer Singapore 2016; US$ 95.15

    The book presents pedagogical reviews of important topics on high energy physics to the students and researchers in particle physics. The book also discusses topics on the Quark?Gluon plasma, thermal field theory, perturbative quantum chromodynamics, anomalies and cosmology. Students of particle physics need to be well-equipped with basic understanding... more...

  • Aliensby Jim Al-Khalili

    Profile Books 2016; US$ 9.31

    The ALIENS invasion is coming ... It's the biggest question we've ever faced, one that has fascinated generations of humans: do aliens exist? If they did, what would they look like? How would they think? And what would it mean for us if we found them? Here, Professor Jim Al-Khalili blasts off in search of answers. Featuring twenty pieces by top... more...

  • Cosmology Beyond Einsteinby Adam R. Solomon

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 126.87

    This work investigates the theoretical and cosmological implications of modifying Einstein's theory of general relativity. It explores two classes of modifications to gravity: those in which the graviton is given a small mass, and those in which Lorentz invariance is spontaneously broken. It elucidates the nature of cosmological perturbations in theories... more...

  • Shapes and Dynamics of Granular Minor Planetsby Ishan Sharma

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 137.44

    This book develops a general approach that can be systematically refined to investigate the statics and dynamics of deformable solid bodies. These methods are then employed to small bodies in the Solar System. With several space missions underway and more being planned, interest in our immediate neighbourhood is growing. In this spirit, this book... more...

  • Astrophysical Applications of Gravitational Lensingby Evencio Mediavilla; Jose A. Muñoz; Francisco Garzón; Terence J. Mahoney

    Cambridge University Press 2016; US$ 112.00

    This book presents gravitational lensing as an essential tool in astrophysics for tracking dark matter at all scales in the Universe. more...
