Scattering Amplitudes in Gauge Theory and Gravity

Scattering Amplitudes in Gauge Theory and Gravity Lowest new price: $58.88
Lowest used price: $47.45
List price: $69.99
Author: Henriette Elvang

Providing a comprehensive, pedagogical introduction to scattering amplitudes in gauge theory and gravity, this book is ideal for graduate students and researchers. It offers a smooth transition from basic knowledge of quantum field theory to the frontier of modern research. Building on basic quantum field theory, the book starts with an introduction to the spinor helicity formalism in the context of Feynman rules for tree-level amplitudes. The material covered includes on-shell recursion relations, superamplitudes, symmetries of N=4 super Yang-Mills theory, twistors and momentum twistors, Grassmannians, and polytopes. The presentation also covers amplitudes in perturbative supergravity, 3D Chern-Simons matter theories, and color-kinematics duality and its connection to 'gravity=(gauge theory)x(gauge theory)'. Basic knowledge of Feynman rules in scalar field theory and quantum electrodynamics is assumed, but all other tools are introduced as needed. Worked examples demonstrate the techniques discussed, and over 150 exercises help readers absorb and master the material.

Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness Lowest new price: $11.20
Lowest used price: $6.26
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

Relativity: The Special and the General Theory (Penguin Classics)

Relativity: The Special and the General Theory (Penguin Classics) Lowest new price: $4.29
Lowest used price: $3.49
List price: $15.00
Author: Albert Einstein

An accesible version of Einstein's masterpiece of theory, written by the genius himself

According to Einstein himself, this book is intended "to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics." When he wrote the book in 1916, Einstein's name was scarcely known outside the physics institutes. Having just completed his masterpiece, The General Theory of Relativity—which provided a brand-new theory of gravity and promised a new perspective on the cosmos as a whole—he set out at once to share his excitement with as wide a public as possible in this popular and accessible book.

Here published for the first time as a Penguin Classic, this edition of Relativity features a new introduction by bestselling science author Nigel Calder.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

UNDERSTANDING SPECIAL AND GENERAL RELATIVITY: modern physics Lowest new price: $16.03

Author: Umberto Piacquadio

The English astronomer Sir Arthur Eddington must have jumped when, on May 29, 1919, intent on observing a total eclipse of the sun, he discovered that the man, who four years earlier had published the controversial theory of General Relativity, he was right. Albert Einstein, one of the most famous physicists in history, whose career as a great scientist began in 1905 when, by a half-known employee of the patent office in Bern, he published his first two articles on Restricted Relativity. It is without too many scientific claims that I am going to introduce the reader to the Theory of Relativity Restricted and General which is the theme of this work which however can not be fully grasped without the fundamental mathematical and physical skills that are learned in a high school. With an innovative approach compared to many other educational treatises on the subject, which often neglect the mathematical aspects necessary for a correct understanding of the phenomenon, I will try to deal with the issues, so as to understand mainly the concepts, through rigorous mathematical demonstrations or 'aid of graphs and diagrams. After a brief but indispensable historical and biographical introduction on Albert Einstein I paid particular attention to the thought of Relativity already present in Galileo's observations and I exposed the fundamental works of James Clerk Maxwell, Albert Abraham Michelson, Edward Morley, and Hendrik Antoon Lorentz to reach to the absolutely innovative idea postulated by the Theory of Special Relativity. Once immersed in the new theory, in the second chapter, I analyzed analytically the concepts on the dilation of the times and the contraction of the distances until the solution of the always fascinating paradoxes. Subsequently, the present work focuses on the mass-energy duality (E = mc2) and gravitational mass-inertial mass. There is no lack of "mental experiments" and the use of the Minkowsky diagram in order to better understand the effects of the theory. In the discussion on General Relativity, the themes of the four-dimensional space-time curvature will be addressed, the exposure of the famous Einstein Field Equations, the Gravitational Redshift, the Deflection of Light, the Precession of the Perielion of Mercury and the Gravitational Waves. In conclusion, we can not forget that Albert Einstein, besides being a famous physicist, is very active in various fields of culture becoming one of the most important thinkers of the last century for whom the most cited and curious aphorisms of the illustrious interlude between chapters and paragraphs. I thank all those who have been close to me during the writing of this paper and with the hope of having set up the work so that it can be useful to all those who approach the study of the fascinating Theory of Relativity I am grateful to now who will want to propose improvements or any suggestions.

In this book, we continue to construct, critique, correct, and compactify our views on "The Sinister Universe"; last visited in the paper "On Rotation". In particular, we propose two principles to explain all phenomena; the minimization of work, and the conservation of the three, classical and quantum mechanical, 'first integrals of the motion'; E, L, L_z.


Black Identities: West Indian Immigrant Dreams and American Realities

Black Identities: West Indian Immigrant Dreams and American Realities Lowest new price: $22.00
Lowest used price: $4.63
List price: $32.50
Author: Mary C. Waters

The story of West Indian immigrants to the United States is considered a great success. Many of these adoptive citizens have prospered, including General Colin Powell. But Mary Waters tells a very different story about immigrants from the West Indies, especially their children.

She finds that when the immigrants first arrive, their knowledge of English, their skills and contacts, their self-respect, and their optimistic assessment of American race relations facilitate their integration into the American economic structure. Over time, however, the realities of American race relations begin to swamp their positive cultural values. Persistent, blatant racial discrimination soon undermines the openness to whites the immigrants have when they first arrive. Discrimination in housing channels them into neighborhoods with inadequate city services and high crime rates. Inferior public schools undermine their hopes for their children's future. Low wages and poor working conditions are no longer attractive for their children, who use American and not Caribbean standards to measure success.

Ultimately, the values that gained these first-generation immigrants initial success--a willingness to work hard, a lack of attention to racism, a desire for education, an incentive to save--are undermined by the realities of life in the United States. In many families, the hard-won relative success of the parents is followed by the downward slide of their children. Contrary to long-held beliefs, Waters finds, those who resist Americanization are most likely to succeed economically, especially in the second generation.

Einstein's Theory: A Rigorous Introduction for the Mathematically Untrained Lowest new price: $63.60
Lowest used price: $64.99
List price: $79.95
Author: Øyvind Grøn

This book provides an introduction to the theory of relativity and the mathematics used in its processes. Three elements of the book make it stand apart from previously published books on the theory of relativity.

First, the book starts at a lower mathematical level than standard books with tensor calculus of sufficient maturity to make it possible to give detailed calculations of relativistic predictions of practical experiments. Self-contained introductions are given, for example vector calculus, differential calculus and integrations. Second, in-between calculations have been included, making it possible for the non-technical reader to follow step-by-step calculations. Thirdly, the conceptual development is gradual and rigorous in order to provide the inexperienced reader with a philosophically satisfying understanding of the theory.

The goal of this book is to provide the reader with a sound conceptual understanding of both the special and general theories of relativity, and gain an insight into how the mathematics of the theory can be utilized to calculate relativistic effects.

List price: $69.00
Author: David B. Malament
Brand: Brand: University Of Chicago Press

In Topics in the Foundations of General Relativity and Newtonian Gravitation Theory, David B. Malament presents the basic logical-mathematical structure of general relativity and considers a number of special topics concerning the foundations of general relativity and its relation to Newtonian gravitation theory. These special topics include the geometrized formulation of Newtonian theory (also known as Newton-Cartan theory), the concept of rotation in general relativity, and Gödel spacetime. One of the highlights of the book is a no-go theorem that can be understood to show that there is no criterion of orbital rotation in general relativity that fully answers to our classical intuitions. Topics is intended for both students and researchers in mathematical physics and philosophy of science.
