The third volume in Leonard Susskind's one-of-a-kind physics series cracks open Einstein's special relativity and field theory In the first two books in his wildly popular The Theoretical Minimum series, world-class physicist Leonard Susskind provided a brilliant first course in classical and quantum mechanics, offering readers not an oversimplified introduction,...
This book offers a detailed and stimulating account of the Lagrangian, or variational, approach to general relativity and beyond. After an introduction to field theories and the variational approach, individual sections focus on the variational approach in relation to special relativity, general relativity, and alternative theories of gravity.
This volume is an introduction to interfacial phenomena. It collects the lecture notes from a one month Summer school in Les Houches. The courses and the notes are intended to be especially useful for master and PhD students as well as young researchers.

Jim Baggott explores how our understanding of the nature of matter, and its fundamental property of mass, has developed, from the ancient Greek view of indivisible atoms to quantum mechanics, dark matter, the Higgs field, and beyond. He shows how the stuff of the universe is proving more elusive and...
This is the second edition of a widely used practical guide to computer simulations of liquids. The technique uses a model for the way molecules interact, to predict how large numbers of them behave in liquid state. This essential introduction to this rapidly growing field is complete with illustrative computer...
The affects, aesthetics, and ethics of voice in the new materialist turn, explored through encounters with creative works in media and the arts. Moved by the Aboriginal understandings of songlines or dreaming tracks, Norie Neumark's Voicetracks seeks to deepen an understanding of voice through listening to a variety of voicing/sound/voice...
Provides a state-of-the-art tool for those studying, teaching, and researching architectural acoustics.
This book is an experimental physics textbook on classical mechanics focusing on the development of experimental skills by means of discussion of different aspects of the experimental setup and the assessment of common issues such as accuracy and graphical representation.
