From Atoms to Higgs Bosons: Voyages in Quasi Space-Time

1st Edition

Chary Rangacharyulu, Christopher J. A. Polachic
February 28, 2019

For millennia, natural philosophers and scientists have been actively engaged in the reductionist quest to specify the fundamental building blocks of matter and discern the dynamics of physical reality. During the last one hundred years, physicists have intensified this search, probing the deep...

The Road to Einstein's Relativity: Following in the Footsteps of the Giants

1st Edition

David Lyth
January 25, 2019

Expertly guided by renowned cosmologist Dr. David Lyth, learn about the pioneering scientists whose work provided the foundation for Einstein’s formulation of his theories of relativity, and about Einstein's groundbreaking life and work as well. This highly readable and accessible panorama of the...

Universe Dynamics: The Least Action Principle and Lagrange’s Equations

1st Edition

Jacques Vanier, Cipriana Tomescu (Mandache)
January 22, 2019

Brought together in one focused and exclusive treatment, this book provides an elementary introduction to the important role and use of the least action principle and the resulting Lagrange’s equations in the analysis of the laws that govern the universe. It is an ideal complimentary resource to...

Dynamical Systems: Theories and Applications

1st Edition

Zeraoulia Elhadj
January 22, 2019

Chaos is the idea that a system will produce very different long-term behaviors when the initial conditions are perturbed only slightly. Chaos is used for novel, time- or energy-critical interdisciplinary applications. Examples include high-performance circuits and devices, liquid mixing, chemical...

Operational Procedures Describing Physical Systems

1st Edition

Marciel Agop, Ioan Merches
October 02, 2018

The authors examine topics in modern physics and offer a unitary and original treatment of the fundamental problems of the dynamics of physical systems, as well as a description of the nuclear matter within a framework of general relativity. They show that some physical phenomena studied at two...

The Dynamical Projectors Method: Hydro and Electrodynamics

1st Edition

Sergey Leble, Anna Perelomova
March 27, 2018

The dynamical projectors method proves to reduce a multicomponent problem to the simplest one-component problem with its solution determined by specific initial or boundary conditions. Its universality and application in many different physical problems make it particularly useful in hydrodynamics,...

Understanding Optics with Python

1st Edition

Vasudevan Lakshminarayanan, Hassen Ghalila, Ahmed Ammar, L. Srinivasa Varadharajan
February 16, 2018

Optics is an enabling science that forms a basis for our technological civilization. Courses in optics are a required part of the engineering or physics undergraduate curriculum in many universities worldwide. The aim of Understanding Optics with Python is twofold: first, to describe certain basic...

Supersymmetry Beyond Minimality: From Theory to Experiment

1st Edition

Shaaban Khalil, Stefano Moretti
December 18, 2017

Supersymmetry (SUSY) is one of the most important ideas ever conceived in particle physics. It is a symmetry that relates known elementary particles of a certain spin to as yet undiscovered particles that differ by half a unit of that spin (known as Superparticles). Supersymmetric models now stand...

Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering

1st Edition

Mattias Blennow
December 18, 2017

Suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this new textbook contains an introduction to the mathematical concepts used in physics and engineering. The entire book is unique in that it draws upon applications from physics, rather than mathematical examples, to ensure students are...

Subtlety in Relativity

1st Edition

Sanjay Moreshwar Wagh
December 13, 2017

Subtlety in Relativity is the only book that has been written after the author’s discovery of a new way in which wave phenomena occur—the emission origin of waves. This drastically changes most issues of the old debate over the world being either deterministic or probabilistic. The emission origin...

A Concise Handbook of Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering Sciences

1st Edition

Andrei D. Polyanin, Alexei I. Chernoutsan
November 13, 2017

A Concise Handbook of Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering Sciences takes a practical approach to the basic notions, formulas, equations, problems, theorems, methods, and laws that most frequently occur in scientific and engineering applications and university education. The authors pay special...

The Standard Model and Beyond

2nd Edition

Paul Langacker
July 06, 2017

This new edition of The Standard Model and Beyond presents an advanced introduction to the physics and formalism of the standard model and other non-abelian gauge theories. It provides a solid background for understanding supersymmetry, string theory, extra dimensions, dynamical symmetry breaking,...
