String Theory in a Nutshell
Lowest new price: $42.00
Lowest used price: $20.00
List price: $97.50
Author: Elias Kiritsis
Brand: Brand: Princeton University Press

This book is the essential new introduction to modern string theory, by one of the world's authorities on the subject. Concise, clearly presented, and uptodate, String Theory in a Nutshell brings together the best understood and most important aspects of a theory that has been evolving since the early 1980s. A core model of physics that substitutes onedimensional extended "strings" for zerodimensional pointlike particles (as in quantum field theory), string theory has been the leading candidate for a theory that would successfully unify all fundamental forces of nature, including gravity. Starting with the basic definitions of the theory, Elias Kiritsis guides readers through classic and modern topics. In particular, he treats perturbative string theory and its Conformal Field Theory (CFT) tools in detail while also developing nonperturbative aspects and exploring the unity of string interactions. He presents recent topics including black holes, their microscopic entropy, and the AdS/CFT correspondence. He also describes matrix model tools for string theory. In all, the book contains nearly five hundred exercises for the graduatelevel student, and works as a selfcontained and detailed guide to the literature. String Theory in a Nutshell is the staple onevolume reference on the subject not only for students and researchers of theoretical highenergy physics, but also for mathematicians and physicists specializing in theoretical cosmology and QCD.

Gauge Theory of Elementary Particle Physics (Oxford science publications)
Lowest new price: $243.36
Lowest used price: $95.00
List price: $65.00
Author: TaPei Cheng

This is a practical introduction to the principal ideas in gauge theory and their applications to elementary particle physics, explaining technique and methodology with simple exposition backed up by many illustrative examples. Derivations, some of well known results, are presented in sufficient detail to make the text accessible to readers entering the field for the first time. The book focuses on the strong interaction theory of quantum chromodynamics and the electroweak interaction theory of Glashow, Weinberg, and Salam, as well as the grand unification theory, exemplified by the simplest SU(5) model.

Superstring Theory: Loop Amplitudes, Anomalies and Phenomenology, Vol. 2 (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics)
Lowest new price: $57.57
Lowest used price: $56.45
List price: $67.00
Author: Michael B. Green
Brand: Cambridge University Press

Twentyfive years ago, Michael Green, John Schwarz, and Edward Witten wrote two volumes on string theory. Published during a period of rapid progress in this subject, these volumes were highly influential for a generation of students and researchers. Despite the immense progress that has been made in the field since then, the systematic exposition of the foundations of superstring theory presented in these volumes is just as relevant today as when first published. Volume 2 is concerned with the evaluation of oneloop amplitudes, the study of anomalies and phenomenology. It examines the low energy effective field theory analysis of anomalies, the emergence of the gauge groups E8 x E8 and SO(32) and the fourdimensional physics that arises by compactification of six extra dimensions. Featuring a new Preface setting the work in context in light of recent advances, this book is invaluable for graduate students and researchers in high energy physics and astrophysics, as well as mathematicians.

The Standard Theory of Particle Physics: Essays to Celebrate CERN's 60th Anniversary (Advanced Series on Directions in High Energy Physics)
Lowest new price: $140.13
Lowest used price: $174.06
List price: $162.00
Author: Luciano Maiani

The book gives a quite complete and uptodate picture of the Standard Theory with an historical perspective, with a collection of articles written by some of the protagonists of present particle physics. The theoretical developments are described together with the most uptodate experimental tests, including the discovery of the Higgs Boson and the measurement of its mass as well as the most precise measurements of the top mass, giving the reader a complete description of our present understanding of particle physics.
Readership: Graduate students and researchers in particle physics.

Despite the immense progress that has been made in the field since then, the systematic exposition of the foundations of superstring theory presented in these volumes is just as relevant today as when first published. A selfcontained introduction to superstrings, Volume 1 begins with an elementary treatment of the bosonic string, before describing the incorporation of additional degrees of freedom: fermionic degrees of freedom leading to supersymmetry and internal quantum numbers leading to gauge interactions. A detailed discussion of the evaluation of treeapproximation scattering amplitudes is also given. Featuring a new Preface setting the work in context in light of recent advances, this book is invaluable for graduate students and researchers in general relativity and elementary particle theory.

Lectures On Phase Transitions And The Renormalization Group (Frontiers in Physics)
Lowest new price: $77.25
Lowest used price: $56.66
List price: $80.00
Author: Nigel Goldenfeld
Brand: Nigel Goldenfeld

Covering the elementary aspects of the physics of phases transitions and the renormalization group, this popular book is widely used both for core graduate statistical mechanics courses as well as for more specialized courses. Emphasizing understanding and clarity rather than technical manipulation, these lectures demystify the subject and show precisely "how things work." Goldenfeld keeps in mind a reader who wants to understand why things are done, what the results are, and what in principle can go wrong. The book reaches both experimentalists and theorists, students and even active researchers, and assumes only a prior knowledge of statistical mechanics at the introductory graduate level.Advanced, neverbeforeprinted topics on the applications of renormalization group far from equilibrium and to partial differential equations add to the uniqueness of this book.

The Quantum Theory of Fields 3 Volume Paperback Set (V. 13)
Lowest new price: $126.32
Lowest used price: $165.45
List price: $170.00
Author: Steven Weinberg
Brand: Steven Weinberg

Available for the first time in paperback, The Quantum Theory of Fields is a selfcontained, comprehensive, and uptodate introduction to quantum field theory from Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg. The first volume introduces the foundations of quantum field theory, the second volume examines modern applications, and finally, the third volume presents supersymmetry, an area of theoretical physics likely to be at the center of progress in the physics of elementary particles and gravitation. The development is fresh and logical throughout, with each step carefully motivated by what has preceded. The presentation of modern mathematical methods is interwoven with accounts of applications in both elementary particle and condensed matter physics. The three volumes contain much original material, and are enhanced with examples and insights drawn from the author's experience as a leader of elementary particle research.
