  • String Theory in a Nutshellby Elias Kiritsis

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 85.00

    This book is the essential new introduction to modern string theory, by one of the world's authorities on the subject. Concise, clearly presented, and up-to-date, String Theory in a Nutshell brings together the best understood and most important aspects of a theory that has been evolving since the early 1980s. A core model of physics that substitutes... more...

  • Gauging What's Realby Richard Healey

    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 34.99

    Gauge theories have provided our most successful representations of the fundamental forces of nature. How, though, do such representations work? Interpretations of gauge theory aim to answer this question. Through understanding how a gauge theory's representations work, we are able to say what kind of world our gauge theories reveal to us.A gauge... more...

  • Understand Physics: Teach Yourselfby Jim Breithaupt

    Hodder & Stoughton 2010; US$ 21.30

    Understand Physics gives you a solid understanding of the key skills and ideas that run through the subject. You will explore the important concepts of force and motion, electricity, light, molecules, matter and space and discover the frontiers of physics. With numerous questions, answers and worked examples throughout, you will feel confident in... more...

  • Understanding Physics: Flashby Jim Breithaupt

    Hodder & Stoughton 2011; US$ 9.26

    The books in this bite-sized new series contain no complicated techniques or tricky materials, making them ideal for the busy, the time-pressured or the merely curious. Understanding Physics is a short, simple and to-the-point guide. In just 96 pages, the reader will learn all the basics, from atoms and molecules to forces, energy and quantum theory.... more...

  • The Science and Technology of Undulators and Wigglersby James A. Clarke

    Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 198.99

    Synchrotron radiation sources are now used routinely by thousands of research scientists and engineers throughout the world to perform experiments in biology, physics, materials science, chemistry and so on. The very best of these sources are based upon the use of undulator and wiggler insertion devices that can enhance the intensity of the radiation... more...

  • The Physics of Warm Nucleiby Helmut Hofmann

    Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 149.99

    This book offers a comprehensive survey of basic elements of nuclear dynamics at low energies and discusses similarities to mesoscopic systems. It addresses systems with finite excitations of their internal degrees of freedom, so that their collective motion exhibits features typical for transport processes in small and isolated systems. The importance... more...

  • In Search Of Schrodinger's Catby John Gribbin

    Transworld 2012; US$ 14.41

    Quantum theory is so shocking that Einstein could not bring himself to accept it. It is so important that it provides the fundamental underpinning of all modern sciences. Without it, we'd have no computers, no science of molecular biology, no understanding of DNA, no genetic engineering. In Search of Schrodinger's Cat tells the complete... more...

  • X-Ray Compton Scatteringby Malcolm Cooper; Peter Mijnarends; Nobuhiro Shiotani

    Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 249.99

    With the development of potent x-ray sources at many synchrotron laboratories worldwide, Compton scattering has become a standard tool for studying electron densities in materials. This book provides condensed matter and materials physicists with an authoritative, up-to-date, and very accessible account of the Compton scattering method, leading to... more...

  • Neutrinoby Frank Close

    Oxford University Press 2010; US$ 12.99

    What are neutrinos? Why does nature need them? What use are they?Neutrinos are perhaps the most enigmatic particles in the universe. Formed in certain radioactive decays, they pass through most matter with ease. These tiny, ghostly particles are formed in millions in the Sun and pass through us constantly. For a long time they were thought to be massless,... more...
