Mathematical Physics
A Primer on Scientific Programming with Python (Texts in Computational Science and Engineering)
Lowest new price: $59.75
Lowest used price: $60.75
List price: $89.99
Author: Hans Petter Langtangen
Brand: Langtangen Hans Petter

The book serves as a first introduction to computer programming of scientific applications, using the highlevel Python language. The exposition is example and problemoriented, where the applications are taken from mathematics, numerical calculus, statistics, physics, biology and finance. The book teaches "Matlabstyle" and procedural programming as well as objectoriented programming. High school mathematics is a required background and it is advantageous to study classical and numerical onevariable calculus in parallel with reading this book. Besides learning how to program computers, the reader will also learn how to solve mathematical problems, arising in various branches of science and engineering, with the aid of numerical methods and programming. By blending programming, mathematics and scientific applications, the book lays a solid foundation for practicing computational science. From the reviews: Langtangen … does an excellent job of introducing programming as a set of skills in problem solving. He guides the reader into thinking properly about producing program logic and data structures for modeling realworld problems using objects and functions and embracing the objectoriented paradigm. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. F. H. Wild III, Choice, Vol. 47 (8), April 2010 Those of us who have learned scientific programming in Python ‘on the streets’ could be a little jealous of students who have the opportunity to take a course out of Langtangen’s Primer.” John D. Cook, The Mathematical Association of America, September 2011 This book goes through Python in particular, and programming in general, via tasks that scientists will likely perform. It contains valuable information for students new to scientific computing and would be the perfect bridge between an introduction to programming and an advanced course on numerical methods or computational science. Alex Small, IEEE, CiSE Vol. 14 (2), March /April 2012 “This fourth edition is a wonderful, inclusive textbook that covers pretty much everything one needs to know to go from zero to fairly sophisticated scientific programming in Python…” Joan Horvath, Computing Reviews, March 2015

Lowest new price: $65.02
Lowest used price: $65.23
List price: $94.99
Author: Mehran Kardar
Brand: imusti

Statistical physics has its origins in attempts to describe the thermal properties of matter in terms of its constituent particles, and has played a fundamental role in the development of quantum mechanics. Based on lectures taught by Professor Kardar at MIT, this textbook introduces the central concepts and tools of statistical physics. It contains a chapter on probability and related issues such as the central limit theorem and information theory, and covers interacting particles, with an extensive description of the van der Waals equation and its derivation by mean field approximation. It also contains an integrated set of problems, with solutions to selected problems at the end of the book and a complete set of solutions is available to lecturers on a password protected website at www.cambridge.org/9780521873420. A companion volume, Statistical Physics of Fields, discusses nonmean field aspects of scaling and critical phenomena, through the perspective of renormalization group.

A Most Incomprehensible Thing: Notes Towards a Very Gentle Introduction to the Mathematics of Relativity
Lowest new price: $14.99
Lowest used price: $18.02
List price: $14.99
Author: Peter Collier

A clear and enjoyable guide to the mathematics of relativity – THE AMAZON BESTSELLER To really understand relativity – one of the cornerstones of modern physics – you have to get to grips with the mathematics. This userfriendly selfstudy guide is aimed at the general reader who is motivated to tackle that not insignificant challenge. The book is written using straightforward and accessible language, with clear derivations and explanations as well as numerous fully solved problems. For those with minimal mathematical background, the first chapter provides a crash course in foundation mathematics. The reader is then taken gently by the hand and guided through a wide range of fundamental topics, including Newtonian mechanics; the Lorentz transformations; tensor calculus; the Einstein field equations; the Schwarzschild solution (which gives a good approximation of the spacetime of our Solar System); simple black holes and relativistic cosmology. Following the historic 2015 LIGO (Laser Interferometer GravitationalWave Observatory) detection, there is now an additional chapter on gravitational waves, ripples in the fabric of spacetime that potentially provide a revolutionary new way to study the universe.
Special relativity helps explain a huge range of nongravitational physical phenomena and has some strangely counterintuitive consequences. These include time dilation, length contraction, the relativity of simultaneity, massenergy equivalence and an absolute speed limit. General relativity, the leading theory of gravity, is at the heart of our understanding of cosmology and black holes.
Understand even the basics of Einstein's amazing theory and the world will never seem the same again.
