    Introduction To General Relativity: Solutions To Problems

    By John Dirk Walecka

    Paperback £38.16

    It is important for every physicist today to have a working knowledge of Einstein's theory of general relativity. Introduction to General Relativity published in 2007 was aimed at first-year graduate students, or advanced undergraduates, in physics. Only a basic understanding of classical lagrangian mechanics is assumed; beyond that, the reader...

    This text covers in detail recent developments in the field of stochastic processes and Random Matrix Theory. Matrix models have been playing an important role in theoretical physics for a long time and are currently also a very active domain of research in mathematics.

    Foundations of Quantum Theory

    By Klaas Landsman

    Hardback Save £6.54 = £38.45

    This book studies the foundations of quantum theory through its relationship to classical physics. This idea goes back to the Copenhagen Interpretation in the original version due to Bohr and Heisenberg, which the author relates to the mathematical formalism of operator algebras originally created by von Neumann. The book therefore...

    Practical Bayesian Inference

    By Coryn A. L. Bailer-Jones

    Paperback £26.30

    This volume introduces the major concepts of probability and statistics and the computational tools students need to extract information from data in the presence of uncertainty. Using a simple and intuitive Bayesian approach, the emphasis throughout is on the principles and showing how these methods can be implemented in practice.
