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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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....

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...

"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 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,...

**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...**

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...

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--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...

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...

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...
