The Global Approach to Quantum Field Theory: 2-Volume Set (International Series of Monographs on Physics) Lowest new price: $295.75
Lowest used price: $433.44
List price: $320.00
Author: Bryce DeWitt

This new volume takes a complete look at how classical field theory, quantum mechanics and quantum field theory are interrelated. It takes a global approach and discusses the importance of quantization by relating it to different theories such as tree amplitude and conservation laws. There are special chapters devoted to Euclideanization and renormalization, space and time inversion and the closed-time-path formalism.

"A great delight to read." — Physics Today
Among the most fertile areas of modern physics, many-body theory has produced a wealth of fundamental results in all areas of the discipline. Unfortunately the subject is notoriously difficult and, until the publication of this book, most treatments of the topic were inaccessible to the average experimenter or non-specialist theoretician.
The present work, by contrast, is well within the grasp of the nonexpert. It is intended primarily as a "self-study" book that introduces one aspect of many-body theory, i.e. the method of Feynman diagrams. The book also lends itself to use as a reference in courses on solid state and nuclear physics which make some use of the many-body techniques. And, finally, it can be used as a supplementary reference in a many-body course.
Chapters 1 through 6 provide an introduction to the major concepts of the field, among them Feynman diagrams, quasi-particles and vacuum amplitudes. Chapters 7 through 16 give basic coverage to topics ranging from Dyson's equation and the ladder approximation to Fermi systems at finite temperature and superconductivity. Appendixes summarize the Dirac formalism and include a rigorous derivation of the rules for diagrams. Problems are provided at the end of each chapter and solutions are given at the back of the book.
For this second edition, Dr. Mattuck, formerly of the H. C. Orsted Institute and the University of Copenhagen, added to many chapters a new section showing in mathematical detail how typical many-body calculations with Feynman diagrams are carried out. In addition, new exercises were included, some of which gave the reader the opportunity to carry out simpler many-body calculations himself.  new chapter on the quantum field theory of phase transitions rounds out this unusually clear, helpful and informative guide to the physics of the many-body problem.

Author: Simon Ramo
Brand: Simon Ramo

This comprehensive revision begins with a review of static electric and magnetic fields, providing a wealth of results useful for static and time-dependent fields problems in which the size of the device is small compared with a wavelength. Some of the static results such as inductance of transmission lines calculations can be used for microwave frequencies. Familiarity with vector operations, including divergence and curl, are developed in context in the chapters on statics. Packed with useful derivations and applications.

Lowest used price: $30.50
List price: $91.99
Author: Joseph Polchinski
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

Volume 2: Superstring Theory and Beyond, begins with an introduction to supersymmetric string theories and goes on to a broad presentation of the important advances of recent years. The book first introduces the type I, type II, and heterotic superstring theories and their interactions. It then goes on to present important recent discoveries about strongly coupled strings, beginning with a detailed treatment of D-branes and their dynamics, and covering string duality, M-theory, and black hole entropy, and discusses many classic results in conformal field theory. The final four chapters are concerned with four-dimensional string theories, and have two goals: to show how some of the simplest string models connect with previous ideas for unifying the Standard Model; and to collect many important and beautiful general results on world-sheet and spacetime symmetries.

Universal Laws Never Before Revealed: Keely's Secrets : Understanding and Using the Science of Sympathetic Vibration Lowest new price: $19.95
Lowest used price: $23.87
List price: $19.95
Author: Dale Pond

One hundred years ago, scientist/inventor/philospher John Keely built various devices that were able to overcome gravity, tunnel through rock using a hend-held device, use acoustics to power engines, and create superconductivity by using wires made of gold, silver and platinum. Almost lost, this book compiles ten years of research by the editor/author that explains the technology used. Understandable to the laymen and useful to the most advanced researcher, the physics of sympathetic vibrations is the unification of many different scientific, engineering and philosophical disciplines into a new paradigm. This science demonstrates the commonality that underlies all phenomena vibration! This book will be fascinating to both laymen and the most advanced scientists. Maybe you will be the one to be able to duplicate some of the incredible machines that John Keely developed which were all but lost for a hundred years. This monumental work contains the mathematics and basic principles which can usher in a new awareness as well as new sources of energy.

Water Wave Mechanics for Engineers & Scientists (Advanced Series on Ocean Engineering-Vol2) (v. 2) Lowest new price: $39.93
Lowest used price: $32.51
List price: $49.00
Author: Robert G. Dean
Brand: Brand: World Scientific Pub Co Inc

This book is intended as an introduction to classical water wave theory for the college senior or first year graduate student. The material is self-contained; almost all mathematical and engineering concepts are presented or derived in the text, thus making the book accessible to practicing engineers as well.The book commences with a review of fluid mechanics and basic vector concepts. The formulation and solution of the governing boundary value problem for small amplitude waves are developed and the kinematic and pressure fields for short and long waves are explored. The transformation of waves due to variations in depth and their interactions with structures are derived. Wavemaker theories and the statistics of ocean waves are reviewed. The application of the water particle motions and pressure fields are applied to the calculation of wave forces on small and large objects. Extension of the linear theory results to several nonlinear wave properties is presented. Each chapter concludes with a set of homework problems exercising and sometimes extending the material presented in the chapter. An appendix provides a description of nine experiments which can be performed, with little additional equipment, in most wave tank facilities.
