Title  Equations in Mathematical Physics : A practical course 
Author(s)  Pikulin, V.P;Pohozaev, Stanislav I 
Publication  Basel, 1. Birkh??user Basel
2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2001. 
Description  VIII, 207 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This handbook is addressed to students of technology institutf's where a course on mathematical physics of relatively reduced volume is offered, as well as to engineers and scientists. The aim of the handbook is to treat (demonstrate) the basic methods for solving the simplest problems of classical mathematical physics. The most basic among the methods considered hrre i8 the superposition method. It allows one, based on particular linearly indepmdent HolutionH (solution "atoms"), to obtain the solution of a given problem. To that end the "Hupply" of solution atoms must be complete. This method is a development of the wellknown method of particular solutions from the theory of ordinar~' differelltial equations. In contrast to the case of ordinary differential equations, where the number of linearly independent 80lutions is always finite, for a linear partial differrntial equation a complete "supply" of solution atoms is always infinite. This infinite set of Holutions may be discrete (for example, for regular boundary vahlP problems in a bounded domain), or form a continuum (for example, in the case of problems in the whole space). In the first case the superposition method reduces to tlH' construction of a series in the indicated solution atoms with unknown coefficipnts, while in the second case the series is replaced by an integral with respect to the corm:iponding parameters (variables). This first step leads us to the general solution of the associated hOlllogeneous equation under the assumption that the set of solution atoms i;; "complete

Title  Controversy and Consensus: Nuclear Beta Decay 1911???1934 
Author(s)  Jensen, Carsten;Aaserud, Finn;Kragh, Helge;R??dinger, Erik;Stuewer, Roger H 
Publication  Basel, 1. Birkh??user Basel
2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2000. 
Description  XVII, 217 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  To all four of us, Carsten was the best possible friend and colleague. To Finn, he was a fellow student in the history of science for several years at the Niels Bohr Institute; to Relge, he was a welcome resource for personal and intellectual interac?? tion in an otherwise less than fertile environment for the history of science; Roger was Carsten's friend and advisor, not least in the development of the dissertation on which the present book is based; and as director of the Niels Bohr Archive, Erik was his main advisor in his historical work. Because he was the person closest to Carsten's work on his Ph. D. dissertation on the history of beta decay, on which the present book is based, it is only fitting that Erik stands as single author of the words in Carsten's memory at the very beginning of this book. Before his untimely death shortly after the completion of the Ph. D. disser?? tation, Carsten had himself plans to develop the dissertation into a book. Being a true perfectionist, he wanted to rework the manuscript substantively, especially with regard to relating it to the broader discussion among historians of science

Description  XXV, 984 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The International Conference on Theoretical Physics, TH2002, took place in Paris from July 22 to 27 in the Conference Center of the UNESCO, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization, under aegis of the IUPAP, the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics and of the French and Euro?? pean Physical Societies, with a large support of several French, European and international Institutions. International and crossdisciplinary, TH2002 welcomed around 1200 partic?? ipants representing all domains of modern theoretical physics. The conference offered a highlevel scientific program, including 18 plenary lectures, 45 general lectures in thematic sessions and 140 more specialized lectures, partly invited and partly selected among proposals received from participants. Around 500 contribu?? tions were also presented as posters. Plenary lectures as well as general thematic lectures were addressed to a general audience of theoricians, not only to specialists. According to our commitments towards UNESCO and other sponsoring insti?? tutions, TH2002 attributed more than 200 fellowships, mostly to scientists from developing countries and Eastern Europe, covering registration fees and, for more than half of them, stay expenses with student type accomodation. Special highlights of the conference included ??? the opening ceremony on July 22, with the participation of Mrs Claudie Haignere, French Minister of Research, and M. Walter Erdelen, General Ad?? joint Director for Sciences at UNESCO. Their opening addresses were espe?? cially appreciated and are reproduced below. This ceremony preceded the first lecture by Professor CohenTannoudji, Physics Nobel prize winner

Title  The Physical Tourist : A Science Guide for the Traveler 
Author(s)  Rigden, John S;Stuewer, Roger H 
Publication  Basel, 1. Birkh??user Basel
2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2009. 
Description  VIII, 251 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Typical travel guides have sections on architecture, art, literature, music and cinema. Rarely are any sciencerelated sites identified. For example, a current travel guide for Germany contains one tidbit on science: Einstein is identified as the most famous citizen of Ulm. By contrast, this travel guide walks a tourist through Berlin and identifies where Max Planck started the quantum revolution, where Einstein lived and gave his early talks on general relativity, and where, across the street, Einstein???s books were burned by the Nazis. Or, if you are walking in Paris, this guide tells you where radioactivity was discovered and where radium was discovered. Scientific discoveries of the past, like art of the past, has shaped life in the 21st century. From this travel guide, a tourist will learn what other guides leave out

Title  Quantum Gravity : Mathematical Models and Experimental Bounds 
Author(s)  Fauser, Bertfried;Tolksdorf, J??rgen;Zeidler, Eberhard 
Publication  Basel, 1. Birkh??user Basel
2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2007. 
Description  XVI, 336 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The construction of a quantum theory of gravity is the most fundamental challenge confronting contemporary theoretical physics. The different physical ideas which evolved while developing a theory of quantum gravity require highly advanced mathematical methods. This book presents different mathematical approaches to formulate a theory of quantum gravity. It represents a carefully selected crosssection of lively discussions about the issue of quantum gravity which took place at the second workshop "Mathematical and Physical Aspects of Quantum Gravity" in Blaubeuren, Germany. This collection covers in a unique way aspects of various competing approaches. A unique feature of the book is the presentation of different approaches to quantum gravity making comparison feasible. This feature is supported by an extensive index. The book is mainly addressed to mathematicians and physicists who are interested in questions related to mathematical physics. It allows the reader to obtain a broad and uptodate overview on a fascinating active research area.

Title  Einstein, 19052005 : Poincar?? Seminar 2005 
Author(s)  Damour, Thibault;Darrigol, Olivier;Rivasseau, Vincent 
Publication  Basel, 1. Birkh??user Basel
2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2006. 
Description  X, 294 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The Poincar?? Seminar is held twice a year at the Institute Henri Poincar?? in Paris. The goal of this seminar is to provide uptodate information about general topics of great interest in physics. Both the theoretical and experimental results are covered, with some historical background. Particular care is devoted to the pedagogical nature of the presentation. This volume is devoted to Einstein's 1905 papers and their legacy. After a presentation of Einstein's epistemological approach to physics, and the genesis of special relativity, a centenary perspective is offered. The geometry of relativistic spacetime is explained in detail. Single photon experiments are presented, as a spectacular realization of Einstein's light quanta hypothesis. A previously unpublished lecture by Einstein, which presents an illuminating point of view on statistical physics in 1910, at the dawn of quantum mechanics, is reproduced. The volume ends with an essay on the historical, physical and mathematical aspects of Brownian motion.

Title  Quantum Field Theory : Competitive Models 
Author(s)  Fauser, Bertfried;Tolksdorf, J??rgen;Zeidler, Eberhard 
Publication  Basel, 1. Birkh??user Basel
2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2009. 
Description  XIX, 436 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  For more than 70 years, quantum field theory (QFT) can be seen as a driving force in the development of theoretical physics. Equally fascinating is the fruitful impact which QFT had in rather remote areas of mathematics. The present book features some of the different approaches, different physically viewpoints and techniques used to make the notion of quantum field theory more precise. For example, the present book contains a discussion including general considerations, stochastic methods, deformation theory and the holographic AdS/CFT correspondence. It also contains a discussion of more recent developments like the use of category theory and topos theoretic methods to describe QFT. The present volume emerged from the 3rd 'Blaubeuren Workshop: Recent Developments in Quantum Field Theory', held in July 2007 at the Max Planck Institute of Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig/Germany. All of the contributions are committed to the idea of this workshop series: 'To bring together outstanding experts working in the field of mathematics and physics to discuss in an open atmosphere the fundamental questions at the frontier of theoretical physics'

Title  Spacetime, Geometry and Gravitation 
Author(s)  Sharan, Pankaj 
Publication  Basel, 1. Birkh??user Basel
2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2009. 
Description  XIV, 355 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This is an introductory book on the general theory of relativity based partly on lectures given to students of M.Sc. Physics at my university. The book is divided into three parts. The ?rst part is a preliminary course on general relativity with minimum preparation. The second part builds the ma ematical background and the third part deals with topics where mathematics developed in the second part is needed. The ?rst chapter gives a general background and introduction. This is f lowed by an introduction to curvature through Gauss??? Theorema Egregium. This theorem expresses the curvature of a twodimensional surface in terms of intrinsic quantitiesrelatedtothein?nitesimaldistancefunctiononthesurface.Thestudent isintroducedtothemetrictensor,Christo?elsymbolsandRiemanncurvaturet sor by elementary methods in the familiar and visualizable case of two dimensions. This early introduction to geometric quantities equips a student to learn simpler topics in general relativity like the Newtonian limit, red shift, the Schwarzschild solution, precession of the perihelion and bending of light in a gravitational ?eld. Part II (chapters 5 to 10) is an introduction to Riemannian geometry as  quired by general relativity. This is done from the beginning, starting with vectors and tensors. I believe that students of physics grasp physical concepts better if they are not shaky about the mathematics involved
