Mathematical Physics
Sync: The Emerging Science of Spontaneous Order
Lowest new price: $16.36
Lowest used price: $1.71
List price: $30.99
Author: Steven Strogatz
Brand: Brand: Hyperion

At the heart of the universe is a steady, insistent beat, the sound of cycles in sync. Along the tidal rivers of Malaysia, thousands of fireflies congregate and flash in unison; the moon spins in perfect resonance with its orbit around the earth; our hearts depend on the synchronous firing of ten thousand pacemaker cells. While the forces that synchronize the flashing of fireflies may seem to have nothing to do with our heart cells, there is in fact a deep connection.
Synchrony is a science in its infancy, and Strogatz is a pioneer in this new frontier in which mathematicians and physicists attempt to pinpoint just how spontaneous order emerges from chaos. From underground caves in Texas where a French scientist spent six months alone tracking his sleepwake cycle, to the home of a Dutch physicist who in 1665 discovered two of his pendulum clocks swinging in perfect time, this fascinating book spans disciplines, continents, and centuries. Engagingly written for readers of books such as Chaos and The Elegant Universe, Sync is a tourdeforce of nonfiction writing.

Quantum Gravity (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics)
Lowest new price: $73.01
Lowest used price: $94.65
List price: $93.00
Author: Carlo Rovelli
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

Quantum gravity poses the problem of merging quantum mechanics and general relativity, the two great conceptual revolutions in the physics of the twentieth century. The loop and spinfoam approach, presented in this book, is one of the leading research programs in the field. The first part of the book discusses the reformulation of the basis of classical and quantum Hamiltonian physics required by general relativity. The second part covers the basic technical research directions. Appendices include a detailed history of the subject of quantum gravity, hardtofind mathematical material, and a discussion of some philosophical issues raised by the subject. This fascinating text is ideal for graduate students entering the field, as well as researchers already working in quantum gravity. It will also appeal to philosophers and other scholars interested in the nature of space and time.

Fourier Series (Mathematical Association of America Textbooks)
Lowest new price: $35.00
Lowest used price: $2.49
List price: $50.00
Author: Rajendra Bhatia

This is a concise introduction to Fourier series covering history, major themes, theorems, examples, and applications. It can be used for self study, or to supplement undergraduate courses on mathematical analysis. Beginning with a brief summary of the rich history of the subject over three centuries, the reader will appreciate how a mathematical theory develops in stages from a practical problem (such as conduction of heat) to an abstract theory dealing with concepts such as sets, functions, infinity, and convergence. The abstract theory then provides unforeseen applications in diverse areas. Exercises of varying difficulty are included throughout to test understanding. A broad range of applications are also covered, and directions for further reading and research are provided, along with a chapter that provides material at a more advanced level suitable for graduate students.


Data Reduction and Error Analysis for the Physical Sciences
Lowest new price: $60.25
Lowest used price: $54.19
List price: $74.75
Author: Philip R. Bevington
Brand: McGraw Hill

The purpose of this book is to provide an introduction to the concepts of statistical analysis of data for students at the undergraduate and graduate level, and to provide tools for data reduction and error analysis commonly required in the physical sciences. The presentation is developed from a practical point of view, including enough derivation to justify the results, but emphasizing methods of handling data more than theory. This text provides a variety of numerical and graphical techniques. Computer programs that support these techniques will be available on an accompanying website in both Fortran and C++.

Time Traveler: A Scientist's Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality
Lowest new price: $29.50
Lowest used price: $3.00
List price: $24.95
Author: Dr. Ronald L. Mallett
Brand: Brand: Thunder's Mouth Press

This is the dramatic and inspirational firstperson story of theoretical physicist, Dr. Ronald Mallett, who recently discovered the basic equations for a working time machine that he believes can be used as a transport vehicle to the past.
Combining elements of Rocket Boys and Elegant Universe, Time Traveler follows Mallett's discovery of Einstein's work on spacetime, his study of Godel's work on a solution of Einstein's equation that might allow for time travel, and his own research in theoretical physics spanning thirty years that culminated in his recent discovery of the effects of circulating laser light and its application to time travel.
The foundation for Mallett's historic timetravel work is Einstein's theory of general relativity, a sound platform for any physicist. Through his years of reading and studying Einstein, Mallett became a buff well before he had any notion of the importance of the grand old relativist's theories to his own career. One interesting subtext to the story is Mallett's identification with, and keen interest in, Einstein. Mallett provides easytounderstand explanations of the famous physicist's seminal work.
