"This textbook introduces advanced classical electrodynamics using modern mathematical techniques, with an emphasis on physical concepts. Connections to field theory and general relativity are highlighted while the book still serves as the basis for a one- or two-semester course on electrodynamics within the graduate curriculum"--
A concise introduction to string theory explaining central concepts, mathematical tools and recent developments in the field of physics. Covering fundamental concepts including how strings interact with each other, this book is perfect for students with no prior knowledge as well as scholars from other disciplines.
Astronomy has become data-driven in ways that are quantitatively and qualitatively different from the past. At this pivotal time, this volume brings together astronomers involved in surveys and large simulation projects, computer scientists, data scientists, and companies, to fruitfully exchange ideas, methods, software, and technical capabilities.
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.
