Title  Theoretical physics in your face: Selected correspondence of Sidney Coleman 
Author(s)  Aaron S Wright (ed.);Diana Coleman (ed.);David Kaiser (ed.) 
Publication  New Jersey, USA, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2023. 
Description  478 p. 
Abstract Note  Sidney Coleman (19372007) was a renowned theoretical physicist, who taught for more than forty years at Harvard University. He contributed critical work on quantum field theory, highenergy particle physics, and cosmology. He was also a remarkably effective teacher who introduced generations of physicists to quantum field theory, mentoring several leading members in the field. His sense of humor and wit became legendary. This selection of his previously unpublished correspondence illuminates changes in theoretical physics and in academic life over the course of Coleman's illustrious career.
The letters show the depth of Coleman's activities and interests, including scinece fiction, space travel, and the US counter culture.
The volume also includes Coleman's legendary lecture "Quantum Mechanics in Your Face."

Title  Problems and solutions on optics 
Author(s)  Swee Cheng Lim (ed.);Choy Heng Lai (ed.);Leong Chuan Kwek (ed.) 
Edition  2nd ed. 
Publication  Singapore, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2019. 
Description  225p. 
Series  (Major American Universities Ph.D. Qualifying Questions and Solutions  Physics) 
Abstract Note  This volume is a compilation of carefully selected questions at the PhD qualifying exam level, including many actual questions from Columbia University, University of Chicago, MIT, State University of New York at Buffalo, Princeton University, University of Wisconsin and the University of California at Berkeley over a twentyyear period. Topics covered in this book include geometrical optics, quantum optics, and wave optics.
This latest edition has been updated with more problems and solutions, bringing the total to over 200 problems. The original problems have been modernized, and outdated questions removed, placing emphasis on those that rely on calculations. The problems range from fundamental to advanced in a wide range of topics on optics, easily enhancing the student's knowledge through workable exercises. Simpletosolve problems play a useful role as a first check of the student's level of knowledge whereas difficult problems will challenge the student's capacity on finding the solutions.

Title  Mathematical methods for physicists 
Author(s)  Danilo Babusci ;Giuseppe Dattoli;Silvia Licciardi;Elio Sabia 
Publication  Singapore, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2019. 
Description  xiv, 463p. 
Abstract Note  The book covers different aspects of mathematical methods for Physics. It is designed for graduate courses but a part of it can also be used by undergraduate students. The leitmotiv of the book is the search for a common mathematical framework for a wide class of apparently disparate physical phenomena. An important role, within this respect, is provided by a nonconventional formulation of special functions and polynomials. The proposed methods simplify the understanding of the relevant technicalities and yield a unifying view to their applications in Physics as well as other branches of science.
The chapters are not organized through the mathematical study of specific problems in Physics, rather they are suggested by the formalism itself. For example, it is shown how the matrix formalism is useful to treat ray Optics, atomic systems evolution, QED, QCD and Feynman diagrams. The methods presented here are simple but rigorous. They allow a fairly substantive tool of analysis for a variety of topics and are useful for beginners as well as the more experienced researchers.

Title  Mathematics of planet earth: A Primer 
Author(s)  Dan Crisan (ed.) 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2017. 
Description  xx, 350p. 
Series  (Advanced Textbooks in Mathematics) 
Abstract Note  Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE) was started and continues to be consolidated as a collaboration of mathematical science organisations around the world. These organisations work together to tackle global environmental, social and economic problems using mathematics.
This textbook introduces the fundamental topics of MPE to advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics, physics and engineering while explaining their modern usages and operational connections. In particular, it discusses the links between partial differential equations, data assimilation, dynamical systems, mathematical modelling and numerical simulations and applies them to insightful examples.
The text also complements advanced courses in geophysical fluid dynamics (GFD) for meteorology, atmospheric science and oceanography. It links the fundamental scientific topics of GFD with their potential usage in applications of climate change and weather variability. The immediacy of examples provides an excellent introduction for experienced researchers interested in learning the scope and primary concepts of MPE.

Title  Modified gravity: Progresses and Outlook of Theories, Numerical Techniques and Observational Tests 
Author(s)  Baojiu Li (ed.);Kazuya Koyama (ed.) 
Publication  Singapore, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2019. 
Description  x, 313p. 
Abstract Note  Modified gravity theories have been a main focus of theoretical cosmology research in the past decade or so, and have been quickly developing into a mature research field that attracts attention, interest and effort from both theoretical and observational cosmologists. To be prepared for fully exploiting the future observational data, and to provide a guidance for people who are new to this field, it is useful to have a comprehensive review to summarise the current state of knowledge and to foresee the future developments.
This book presents expert reviews on different topics in the field, which are then coordinated and organised in a selfconsistent and selfcontained manner. It is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in the frontier research of gravity theories.
