Quantum Field Theory in Curved Spacetime: Quantized Fields and Gravity (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics)

Quantum Field Theory in Curved Spacetime: Quantized Fields and Gravity (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics) Lowest new price: $80.90
Lowest used price: $86.24
List price: $108.00
Author: Leonard Parker

This book develops quantum field theory in curved spacetime in a pedagogical style, suitable for graduate students. The authors present detailed, physically motivated, derivations of cosmological and black hole processes in which curved spacetime plays a key role. They explain how such processes in the rapidly expanding early universe leave observable consequences today, and how in the context of evaporating black holes, these processes uncover deep connections between gravitation and elementary particles. The authors also lucidly describe many other aspects of free and interacting quantized fields in curved spacetime.

The Problem of Time: Quantum Mechanics Versus General Relativity (Fundamental Theories of Physics)

The Problem of Time: Quantum Mechanics Versus General Relativity (Fundamental Theories of Physics) Lowest new price: $106.86
Lowest used price: $120.90
List price: $149.00
Author: Edward Anderson

This book is a treatise on time and on background independence in physics. It first considers how time is conceived of in each accepted paradigm of physics: Newtonian, special relativity, quantum mechanics (QM) and general relativity (GR).  Substantial differences are moreover uncovered between what is meant by time in QM and in GR. These differences jointly source the Problem of Time: Nine interlinked facets which arise upon attempting concurrent treatment of the QM and GR paradigms, as is required in particular for a background independent theory of quantum gravity.  A sizeable proportion of current quantum gravity programs - e.g. geometrodynamical and loop quantum gravity approaches to quantum GR, quantum cosmology, supergravity and M-theory - are background independent in this sense. This book's foundational topic is thus furthermore of practical relevance in the ongoing development of quantum gravity programs. 

This book shows moreover that eight of the nine facets of the Problem of Time already occur upon entertaining background independence in classical (rather than quantum) physics. By this development, and interpreting shape theory as modelling background independence, this book further establishes background independence as a field of study.  Background independent mechanics, as well as minisuperspace (spatially homogeneous) models of GR and perturbations thereabout are used to illustrate these points. As hitherto formulated, the different facets of the Problem of Time greatly interfere with each others' attempted resolutions. This book explains how, none the less, a local resolution of the Problem of Time can be arrived at after various reconceptualizations of the facets and reformulations of their mathematical implementation.  Self-contained appendices on mathematical methods for basic and foundational quantum gravity are included. Finally, this book outlines how supergravity is refreshingly different from GR as a realization of background independence, and what background independence entails at the topological level and beyond.

Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness

Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness Lowest new price: $12.59
Lowest used price: $8.50
List price: $16.95
Author: Jim Keith
Brand: Brand: Adventures Unlimited Pr

Conspiracy expert Keith's latest book on mind control, Project Monarch, and mass manipulation. Keith says that here stands the New Man. His conception of reality is a dance of electronic images fired into his forebrain, a gossamer construction of his masters, designed so that he will not under any circumstances perceive the actual. His happiness is delivered to him through a tube or an electronic connection. His God lurks behind an electronic curtain; when the curtain is pulled away we find the CIA sorcerer, the media manipulator Chapters on the CIA, Tavistock, Jolly West and the Violence Centre, Guerrilla Mindwar, Brice Taylor, other recent victims, more.

Features:

  • From the first stirrings of the psychological and technological control of humanity at the turn of this century, to the creation of an education system intended to dumb students down rather than teach them
  • From the creation of the CIA and secret societies of the elite, to mass drugging of the population
  • From the use of subliminal persuasion to the creation of cults of control
  • Finally, to the invention of top secret mind control devices with capabilities far beyond anything that the media has ever revealed to an unsuspecting public

Cosmology and Particle Astrophysics (Springer Praxis Books in Astrophysics and Astronomy (Hardcover))

Cosmology and Particle Astrophysics (Springer Praxis Books in Astrophysics and Astronomy (Hardcover)) Lowest used price: $49.95
List price: $104.00
Author: Lars Bergström

Combining the expertise of a leading experimentalist and a foremost theorist, this textbook presents all relevant aspects of both observational cosmology and related theoretical concepts. In addition to the more descriptive sections where the reader is able to get the flavor of the subject without needing to follow every step involved, some chapters contain optional more technical parts. The book is self-contained and requires no prior knowledge other than basic undergraduate mathematics and physics. This and the inclusion of worked examples, end-of-chapter summaries, and problems (with answers) in each chapter make this book an excellent introduction to particle astrophysics for advanced undergraduate students. The second edition includes the newest developments on the cosmic microwave background anisotropy, the measurement of the Hubble constant, gravitational lensing experiments and neutrino oscillations.


Gravity

Gravity Lowest new price: $4.96
Lowest used price: $4.08
List price: $8.95
Author: George Gamow

A distinguished physicist and teacher, George Gamow also possessed a special gift for making the intricacies of science accessible to a wide audience. In Gravity, he takes an enlightening look at three of the towering figures of science who unlocked many of the mysteries behind the laws of physics: Galileo, the first to take a close look at the process of free and restricted fall; Newton, originator of the concept of gravity as a universal force; and Einstein, who proposed that gravity is no more than the curvature of the four-dimensional space-time continuum.
Graced with the author's own drawings, both technical and fanciful, this remarkably reader-friendly book focuses particularly on Newton, who developed the mathematical system known today as the differential and integral calculus. Readers averse to equations can skip the discussion of the elementary principles of calculus and still achieve a highly satisfactory grasp of a fascinating subject.
Starting with a chapter on Galileo’s pioneering work, this volume devotes six chapters to Newton's ideas and other subsequent developments and one chapter to Einstein, with a concluding chapter on post-Einsteinian speculations concerning the relationship between gravity and other physical phenomena, such as electromagnetic fields.

Relativity Matters: From Einstein's EMC2 to Laser Particle Acceleration and Quark-Gluon Plasma Lowest new price: $63.13
Lowest used price: $76.48
List price: $89.99
Author: Johann Rafelski

Rafelski presents Special Relativity in a language deemed accessible to students without any topical preparation - avoiding the burden of geometry, tensor calculus, and space-time symmetries – and yet advancing in highly contemporary context all the way to research frontiers. Special Relativity is presented such that nothing remains a paradox or just apparent, but rather is explained.

A text of similar character, content, and scope, has not been available before. This textbook describes Special Relativity when rigid material bodies are introduced describing the reality of body contraction; it shows the relevance of acceleration and the necessary evolution of the theoretical framework when acceleration is critical. This book also presents the evolving views of Einstein about the aether.

In addition to a careful and elementary introduction to relativity complete with exercises, worked examples and many discussions, this volume connects to current research topics so that readers can explore Special Relativity from the foundation to the frontier.
