This introductory text emphasizes Feynman's development of path integrals and its application to wave theory for particles. Suitable for undergraduate and graduate students of physics, the well-written, clear,...

Your memories and feelings could be stored in matter based on non-physical atoms. This book takes the unique approach of recognizing that mental and spiritual phenomena can be observed in the same way that scientists...

A wide-ranging collection of problems and solutions related to quantum mechanics, this text will be useful to students pursuing an advanced degree in physics. Topics include one-dimensional motion, tunnel effect,...

This graduate-level text offers a systematic presentation of the path integral approach to calculating transition elements, partition functions, and source functionals. Topics include Grassmann variables, field...

Introductory text for graduate students in physics taking a year-long course in quantum mechanics in which the third quarter is devoted to relativistic wave equations and field theory. Answers to selected problems....

The third edition of this classic graduate-level physics text covers relativistic quantum mechanics, field quantization, causal perturbation theory, properties of the S-matrix, and considerations of other electromagnetic...

This graduate-level text explores propagator methods, scattering theory, charged particle interactions and their applications, alternate approximate methods, and the Klein-Gordon and Dirac equations. Problems...

From the infinitely small to the infinitely big, covering over 60 spatial orders of magnitude, quantum theory is used as much to describe the still largely mysterious vibrations of the microscopic strings that...

Authoritative text emphasizes history and philosophical foundations in a manner interesting to lay readers as well as students and professionals. Topics include hidden-variable and causal theories and pilot...

This treatment addresses problems and solutions related to nuclear and atomic physics, electron theory of metals, other areas. Topics include variational methods, perturbation theory, statistical mechanics,...

Fascinating journey explores key concepts in information theory in terms of Conway's "Game of Life" program. Topics include the limits of knowledge, paradox of complexity, Maxwell's demon, Big Bang theory, much...

This volume focuses on the formulas of quantum mechanics rather than on applications. Topics include the dual nature of matter and radiation, state functions, linear momentum, motion of a free particle, and...

Based on a Cal Tech introductory course for advanced undergraduates in applied physics, this text explores a wide range of topics culminating in semiconductor transistors and lasers. 1982 edition.

Purely mathematical treatment offers simple exposition of general theory of variational methods with special reference to the vibrating plate. No math beyond basic calculus. Includes exercises. 1957 edition....

Exposition of fourth dimension, concepts of relativity as Flatland characters continue adventures. Topics include curved space time as a higher dimension, special relativity, and shape of space-time. Includes...
