Quantum Chemistry: A Concise Introduction

by Ajit J Thakkar

This book is designed to help the non-specialist user of spectroscopic measurements and electronic structure computations to achieve a basic understanding of the underlying concepts of quantum chemistry. The...

Quantum Information in Gravitational Fields

by Marco Lanzagorta

One of the major scientific thrusts in recent years has been to try to harness quantum phenomena to increase dramatically the performance of a wide variety of classical information processing devices. In particular,...

AdS/CFT Correspondence in Condensed Matter

by Antonio S.T. Pires

The goal of this text is to introduce, in a very elementary way, the concept of anti-de Sitter/Conformal Field Theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence to condensed matter physicists. This theory relates a gravity theory...

Topics in Advanced Quantum Mechanics

by Barry R. Holstein

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...

Quantum Physics

by Serge Haroche & Liz Libbrecht

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...

Hidden Worlds in Quantum Physics

by Gerard Gouesbet & Jean Bricmont

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...

The Quantum Mechanics of Many-Body Systems: Second Edition

by D.J. Thouless

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,...

The Recursive Universe: Cosmic Complexity and the Limits of Scientific Knowledge

by William Poundstone

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...

Variational Methods for Eigenvalue Problems: An Introduction to the Methods of Rayleigh, Ritz, Weinstein, and Aronszajn

by S. H. Gould

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....

Geometry, Relativity and the Fourth Dimension

by Rudolf Rucker

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...

Thirty Years that Shook Physics: The Story of Quantum Theory

by George Gamow

Lucid, accessible introduction to the influential theory of energy and matter features careful explanations of Dirac's anti-particles, Bohr's model of the atom, and much more. Numerous drawings. 1966 edition....

Observer effect

by Massimiliano Sassoli de Bianchi

According to the orthodox interpretation of quantum mechanics, no phenomenon can be such if not first observed, and reality cannot exist in the absence of observation. To this paradoxical conclusion, known as...

The Bit and the Pendulum: From Quantum Computing to M Theory--The New Physics of Information

by Tom Siegfried

"Funny, clear, deep, and right on target. [Siegfried] lets us get a handle on ideas that are essential for understanding the evolving world."

-K. C. Cole, author of The Universe and the Teacup

"An eager, ambitious...

The Dancing Wu Li Masters

by Gary Zukav

“The most exciting intellectual adventure I've been on since reading Robert Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.”

—Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times

Gary Zukav’s timeless, humorous,...

In Search of the Multiverse: Parallel Worlds, Hidden Dimensions, and the Ultimate Quest for the Frontiers of Reality

by John Gribbin

Critical acclaim for John Gribbin

"The master of popular science."

-Sunday Times (London)

"Gribbin explains things very well indeed, and there's not an equation in sight."

-David Goodstein, The New York Times Book...

QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter

by Richard P. Feynman & A. Zee

Celebrated for his brilliantly quirky insights into the physical world, Nobel laureate Richard Feynman also possessed an extraordinary talent for explaining difficult concepts to the general public. Here Feynman...

Dance of the Photons

by Anton Zeilinger

Einstein's steadfast refusal to accept certain aspects of quantum theory was rooted in his insistence that physics has to be about reality. Accordingly, he once derided as "spooky action at a distance" the notion...

The Physics of Neutrinos

by Vernon Barger, Danny Marfatia & Kerry Whisnant

The physics of neutrinos--uncharged elementary particles that are key to helping us better understand the nature of our universe--is one of the most exciting frontiers of modern science. This book provides a...

Beyond the Dynamical Universe

by Michael Silberstein, W. M. Stuckey & Timothy McDevitt

Theoretical physics and foundations of physics have not made much progress in the last few decades. Whether we are talking about unifying general relativity and quantum field theory (quantum gravity), explaining...

Decoding Reality

by Vlatko Vedral

For a physicist, all the world is information. The Universe and its workings are the ebb and flow of information. We are all transient patterns of information, passing on the recipe for our basic forms to future...
