The bestselling French graphic novel about the mind-bending world of quantum physicsFamous explorer Bob and his dog Rick have been around the world and even to the Moon, but their travels through the quantum universe show them the greatest wonders they've ever seen. As they follow their tour guide, the...
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.
This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the electronic and optical properties and potential applications of 2D materials. Presenting the most recent experimental findings of leading experts in the field, it is an ideal reference for students, researchers and practitioners working in nanotechnology, condensed matter physics, and chemistry.
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.

Materials play a key role in our search for solutions to many pressing issues. They underpin industries, are critical for developing new consumer goods, are essential components for medical diagnosis, offer hope for the treatment of currently incurable diseases, and help solve environmental problems. This is a guide to materials...
Relativity theory assumes locality, without accounting for the observer's past history. This book introduces nonlocality, or history dependence, into relativity theory. Inertia and gravitation are deeply tied, suggesting gravity may be nonlocal. The gravitational memory of past events must then be taken into account.
