## Why the Universe Exists

### By New Scientist

Why The Universe Exists takes you deep into the world of particle physics to explore how the universe functions at the smallest scales.

## How To Understand E =mc2

### By Christophe Galfard

It is the most famous equation in the world, and yet most of us do not know its significance. Leading theoretical physicist Christophe Galfard, who was trained by Stephen Hawking, explains it all in a way that is accessible and pertinent to the world in which we live in.

## Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union Symposia

IAU Symposium 329 covers the impact of massive stars, which is felt across many areas of astrophysics, as they are tools to interpret the conditions and processes in different environments. In parallel, new observational data help constrain our theoretical models of massive star birth, evolution and death.

## Guide To Mathematical Methods For Physicists, A: With Problems And Solutions

### By Michela Petrini

Mathematics plays a fundamental role in the formulation of physical theories. This textbook provides a self-contained and rigorous presentation of the main mathematical tools needed in many fields of Physics, both classical and quantum. It covers topics t

## Geometry of Quantum States

### By Ingemar Bengtsson

The second edition of a book that has become a standard reference for researchers working on geometric aspects of quantum entanglement and quantum theory of information. Its comprehensive style makes it suitable for students of physics, information science, and mathematics wishing to learn more about quantum mechanics and quantum entanglement.

## Operator Approximant Problems Arising from Quantum Theory

### By Philip Maher

This book offers an account of a number of aspects of operator theory, mainly developed since the 1980s, whose problems have their roots in quantum theory. The research presented is in non-commutative operator approximation theory or, to use Halmos' terminology, in operator approximants.

## Lasers For Scientists And Engineers

### By L. Wilmer Anderson

Since the invention of the laser, the variety of lasers and their uses have grown at a phenomenal rate. Scientists and engineers have at their disposal an enormous array of sophisticated laser equipments with the possibility of carrying out experiments that were inconceivable only a few decades ago. Lasers for...

## Introduction To General Relativity: Solutions To Problems

### By John Dirk Walecka

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...

## Introduction to Accelerator Dynamics

### By Stephen Peggs

This introductory text presents a detailed account of the field of accelerator physics, including particle acceleration, collision and beam dynamics, and the important engineering considerations inherent in the effective construction and operation of particle accelerators. It is appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, accelerator scientists, and engineers.
