Cosmology for the Curious
Lowest new price: $27.17
Lowest used price: $20.45
List price: $39.99
Author: Delia Perlov

This book is a gentle introduction for all those wishing to learn about modern views of the cosmos. Our universe originated in a great explosion – the big bang. For nearly a century cosmologists have studied the aftermath of this explosion: how the universe expanded and cooled down, and how galaxies were gradually assembled by gravity. The nature of the bang itself has come into focus only relatively recently. It is the subject of the theory of cosmic inflation, which was developed in the last few decades and has led to a radically new global view of the universe. Students and other interested readers will find here a nontechnical but conceptually rigorous account of modern cosmological ideas  describing what we know, and how we know it. One of the book's central themes is the scientific quest to find answers to the ultimate cosmic questions: Is the universe finite or infinite? Has it existed forever? If not, when and how did it come into being? Will it ever end? The book is based on the undergraduate course taught by Alex Vilenkin at Tufts University. It assumes no prior knowledge of physics or mathematics beyond elementary high school math. The necessary physics background is introduced as it is required. Each chapter includes a list of questions and exercises of varying degree of difficulty.

Quantum Field Theory and Gravity: Conceptual and Mathematical Advances in the Search for a Unified Framework
Lowest new price: $99.00
Lowest used price: $90.00
List price: $119.99

One of the most challenging problems of contemporary theoretical physics is the mathematically rigorous construction of a theory which describes gravitation and the other fundamental physical interactions within a common framework. The physical ideas which grew from attempts to develop such a theory require highly advanced mathematical methods and radically new physical concepts. This book presents different approaches to a rigorous unified description of quantum fields and gravity. It contains a carefully selected crosssection of lively discussions which took place in autumn 2010 at the fifth conference "Quantum field theory and gravity  Conceptual and mathematical advances in the search for a unified framework" in Regensburg, Germany. In the tradition of the other proceedings covering this series of conferences, a special feature of this book is the exposition of a wide variety of approaches, with the intention to facilitate a comparison. The book is mainly addressed to mathematicians and physicists who are interested in fundamental questions of mathematical physics. It allows the reader to obtain a broad and uptodate overview of a fascinating active research area.


LQG for the Bewildered: The SelfDual Approach Revisited
Lowest new price: $69.22
Lowest used price: $75.75
List price: $89.99
Author: Deepak Vaid

This primer offers a concise introduction to Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG)  a theoretical framework for uniting Quantum Mechanics (QM) with General Relativity (GR). The emphasis is on the physical aspects of the framework and its historical development in terms of selfdual variables, still most suited for a first, pedagogical encounter with LQG. The text starts by reviewing GR and the very basics of Quantum Field Theory (QFT), and then explains in a concise and clear manner the steps leading from the EinsteinHilbert action for gravity to the construction of the quantum states of geometry, known as spinnetworks, and which provide the basis for the kinematical Hilbert space of quantum general relativity. Along the way the various associated concepts of tetrads, spinconnection and holonomies are introduced. Having thus provided a minimal introduction to the LQG framework, some applications to the problems of black hole entropy and of quantum cosmology are briefly surveyed. Last but not least, a list of the most common criticisms of LQG is presented, which are then tackled one by one in order to convince the reader of the physical viability of the theory. A set of appendices provides accessible introductions to several key notions such as the PeterWeyl theorem, duality of differential forms and Regge calculus, among others. The presentation is aimed at graduate students and researchers who have some familiarity with the tools of QM and GR, but are intimidated by the technicalities required to browse through the existing LQG literature. This primer aims at making the formalism appear a little less bewildering to the uninitiated and helps lower the barrier for entry into the field.

Quantum Relativity: A Synthesis of the Ideas of Einstein and Heisenberg (Theoretical and Mathematical Physics)
Lowest new price: $106.55
Lowest used price: $128.87
List price: $119.99
Author: David R. Finkelstein
Brand: Brand: Springer

Over the past years the author has developed a quantum language going beyond the concepts used by Bohr and Heisenberg. The simple formal algebraic language is designed to be consistent with quantum theory. It differs from natural languages in its epistemology, modal structure, logical connections, and copulatives. Starting from ideas of John von Neumann and in part also as a response to his fundamental work, the author bases his approach on what one really observes when studying quantum processes. This way the new language can be seen as a clue to a deeper understanding of the concepts of quantum physics, at the same time avoiding those paradoxes which arise when using natural languages. The work is organized didactically: The reader learns in fairly concrete form about the language and its structure as well as about its use for physics.

The Little Book of Black Holes (Science Essentials)
Lowest new price: $5.00
Lowest used price: $7.65
List price: $19.95
Author: Steven S. Gubser

Dive into a mindbending exploration of the physics of black holes Black holes, predicted by Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity more than a century ago, have long intrigued scientists and the public with their bizarre and fantastical properties. Although Einstein understood that black holes were mathematical solutions to his equations, he never accepted their physical reality―a viewpoint many shared. This all changed in the 1960s and 1970s, when a deeper conceptual understanding of black holes developed just as new observations revealed the existence of quasars and Xray binary star systems, whose mysterious properties could be explained by the presence of black holes. Black holes have since been the subject of intense research―and the physics governing how they behave and affect their surroundings is stranger and more mindbending than any fiction. After introducing the basics of the special and general theories of relativity, this book describes black holes both as astrophysical objects and theoretical “laboratories” in which physicists can test their understanding of gravitational, quantum, and thermal physics. From Schwarzschild black holes to rotating and colliding black holes, and from gravitational radiation to Hawking radiation and information loss, Steven Gubser and Frans Pretorius use creative thought experiments and analogies to explain their subject accessibly. They also describe the decadeslong quest to observe the universe in gravitational waves, which recently resulted in the LIGO observatories’ detection of the distinctive gravitational wave “chirp” of two colliding black holes―the first direct observation of black holes’ existence. The Little Book of Black Holes takes readers deep into the mysterious heart of the subject, offering rare clarity of insight into the physics that makes black holes simple yet destructive manifestations of geometric destiny.

GRAVITY CONTROL with Present Technology
Lowest new price: $14.50
Lowest used price: $14.44
List price: $14.95
Author: Dr. Frederick Alzofon

The Holy Grail of physics, gravity control, from theory to applied technology, will be found inside this volume. The inventor was Dr. Frederick Alzofon (19192012), a physicist with a worldclass reputation in optics and heat conduction who studied particle physics with J. Robert Oppenheimer and David Bohm, relativity and the scientific method with Victor Lenzen, and applied mathematics with Griffith C. Evans at Cal Berkeley in the 1940s and 1950s. Alzofon's theory has the virtue of being visualizable and simple enough to communicate with some oldfashioned handwaving and sketches on a paper napkin. You will find the "paper napkin" lecture here, as well as the advanced physics you would expect. You will also find experimental proof. The first half of the book considers the implications of the technology for humanity: the conquest of space, a total revamp of terrestrial transportation, and a second Industrial Revolution. It will also reduce the causes of global warming, while drawing the fossilfuel industry as early adopters. Entrepreneurs and engineers should find this part of the book most appealing. The second half of the book dives into the nuts and bolts of the theory and technology. Nothing is withheld. Flash: Nothing is secret either  the technology has been around in full public view since 1981. Why mainstream science ignored it is one of the themes of the book. In contrast to other books on the topic of "antigravity," this one delivers the goods in terms of known physical science. If you're not a scientist or an engineer, you will not feel left out. The theme of the book is accessible to all, and it's a popular one: hope for humanity. But here, the hope is based on a worldtransforming technology. The time is ripe for a paradigm shift, and this book points the way. This volume is an update of an earlier book by the same author, How to Build a Flying Saucer (And Save the Planet), occasioned by the publication of The TopTen UFO Riddles. The current volume focuses on the science of gravity control, with new chapters on the scientific method and a program to research and develop the technology.
