#### The Little Book of String Theory

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 19.95 US$ 18.15The Little Book of String Theory offers a short, accessible, and entertaining introduction to one of the most talked-about areas of physics today. String theory has been called the "theory of everything." It seeks to describe all the fundamental forces of nature. It encompasses gravity and quantum mechanics in one unifying theory. But it is unproven... more...

#### Cold and Ultracold Collisions in Quantum Microscopic and Mesoscopic Systems

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 35.00This is a high-level book on cold and ultracold collisions in physics. more...

#### Direct Nuclear Reactions

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 116.00 US$ 105.56This classic volume, reprinted twenty years after it was first published, takes a close look at the theory of direct nuclear reactions. It emphasizes the microscopic aspects of these reactions and their description in terms of the changes induced in the motion of individual nucleons, except where collective motion in nuclei gives a more succinct description. more...

#### Geometry and Physics of Branes

CRC Press 2002; US$ 231.00Branes are solitonic configurations of a string theory that are represented by extended objects in a higher-dimensional space-time. They are essential for a comprehension of the non-perturbative aspects of string theory, in particular, in connection with string dualities. From the mathematical viewpoint, branes are related to several important theories,... more...

#### The Standard Model

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 62.00This 2006 book uses the standard model as a vehicle for introducing quantum field theory. more...

#### An Introduction to the Standard Model of Particle Physics

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 68.00The second edition of an introductory graduate textbook on the Standard Model of particle physics. more...

#### Brane-localized Gravity

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 94.00 US$ 85.54This timely and valuable book provides a detailed pedagogical introduction and treatment of the brane-localized gravity program of Randall and Sundrum, in which gravitational signals are able to localize around our four-dimensional world in the event that it is a brane embedded in an infinitely-sized, higher dimensional anti-de Sitter bulk space.
