Title  Visual differential geometry and forms: A Mathematical Drama in Five Acts 
Author(s)  Tristan Needham 
Publication  USA, Princeton University Press, 2021. 
Description  PB : 584pp 
Abstract Note  An inviting, intuitive, and visual exploration of differential geometry and formsVisual Differential Geometry and Forms fulfills two principal goals. In the first four acts, Tristan Needham puts the geometry back into differential geometry. Using 235 handdrawn diagrams, Needham deploys Newton’s geometrical methods to provide geometrical explanations of the classical results. In the fifth act, he offers the first undergraduate introduction to differential forms that treats advanced topics in an intuitive and geometrical manner.Unique features of the first four acts include: four distinct geometrical proofs of the fundamentally important Global GaussBonnet theorem, providing a stunning link between local geometry and global topology; a simple, geometrical proof of Gauss’s famous Theorema Egregium; a complete geometrical treatment of the Riemann curvature tensor of an nmanifold; and a detailed geometrical treatment of Einstein’s field equation, describing gravity as curved spacetime (General Relativity), together with its implications for gravitational waves, black holes, and cosmology. The final act elucidates such topics as the unification of all the integral theorems of vector calculus; the elegant reformulation of Maxwell’s equations of electromagnetism in terms of 2forms; de Rham cohomology; differential geometry via Cartan’s method of moving frames; and the calculation of the Riemann tensor using curvature 2forms. Six of the seven chapters of Act V can be read completely independently from the rest of the book.Requiring only basic calculus and geometry, Visual Differential Geometry and Forms provocatively rethinks the way this important area of mathematics should be considered and taught.

Title  The Many Faces of Maxwell, Dirac and Einstein Equations : A Clifford Bundle Approach 
Author(s)  Rodrigues, Jr, Waldyr A;Capelas de Oliveira, Edmundo 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 587 p. 14 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is an exposition of the algebra and calculus of differential forms, of the Clifford and SpinClifford bundle formalisms, and of vistas to a formulation of important concepts of differential geometry indispensable for an indepth understanding of spacetime physics. The formalism discloses the hidden geometrical nature of spinor fields. Maxwell, Dirac and Einstein fields are shown to have representatives by objects of the same mathematical nature, namely sections of an appropriate Clifford bundle. This approach reveals unity in diversity and suggests relationships that are hidden in the standard formalisms and opens new paths for research. This thoroughly revised second edition also adds three new chapters: on the Clifford bundle approach to the Riemannian or semiRiemannian differential geometry of branes; on Komar currents in the context of the General Relativity theory; and an analysis of the similarities and main differences between Dirac, Majorana and ELKO spinor fields. The exercises with solutions, the comprehensive list of mathematical symbols, and the list of acronyms and abbreviations are provided for selfstudy for students as well as for classes. From the reviews of the first edition: ???The text is written in a very readable manner and is complemented with plenty of workedout exercises which are in the style of extended examples. ... their book could also serve as a textbook for graduate students in physics or mathematics." (Alberto Molgado, Mathematical Reviews, 2008 k)

Title  Beyond Einstein : Perspectives on Geometry, Gravitation, and Cosmology in the Twentieth Century 
Author(s)  Rowe, David E;Sauer, Tilman;Walter, Scott A 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Birkh??user
2. Springer New York, 2018. 
Description  XXIII, 492 p. 71 illus., 14 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume explores the interplay between mathematical and physical research and the interactions of twentiethcentury scientists within their academic communities. Beginning with Einstein???s general theory of relativity, the authors investigate a series of dramatic discoveries and rival theories in physics that influenced the development of modern differential geometry. Other sections recount the numerous methods, like the resurgence of Weyl geometry, used by geometers to solve the problems revealed by those same innovations in spacetime physics. The effect of general relativity on astronomy is also addressed, namely how astronomers worked through new theories like inflationary cosmology and Phoenix models. By including recent historical research and coupling this work with many disciplines??? unique perspectives, this text provides a rich picture of general relativity and cosmology over the course of the twentieth century. The increased study on the documentation of Einstein???s early scientific work has clarified the history of science for that time and profoundly altered the way scientists view their own work, as this interdisciplinary volume demonstrates

Title  Differential Geometry and Mathematical Physics : Part II. Fibre Bundles, Topology and Gauge Fields 
Author(s)  Rudolph, Gerd;Schmidt, Matthias 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 2017. 
Description  XVI, 830 p. 15 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book is devoted to the study of the geometrical and topological structure of gauge theories. It consists of the following three building blocks:  Geometry and topology of fibre bundles,  Clifford algebras, spin structures and Dirac operators,  Gauge theory. Written in the style of a mathematical textbook, it combines a comprehensive presentation of the mathematical foundations with a discussion of a variety of advanced topics in gauge theory. The first building block includes a number of specific topics, like invariant connections, universal connections, Hstructures and the Postnikov approximation of classifying spaces. Given the great importance of Dirac operators in gauge theory, a complete proof of the AtiyahSinger Index Theorem is presented. The gauge theory part contains the study of YangMills equations (including the theory of instantons and the classical stability analysis), the discussion of various models with matter fields (including magnetic monopoles, the SeibergWitten model and dimensional reduction) and the investigation of the structure of the gauge orbit space. The final chapter is devoted to elements of quantum gauge theory including the discussion of the Gribov problem, anomalies and the implementation of the nongeneric gauge orbit strata in the framework of Hamiltonian lattice gauge theory. The book is addressed both to physicists and mathematicians. It is intended to be accessible to students starting from a graduate level

Title  Towards a Theory of Spacetime Theories 
Author(s)  Lehmkuhl, Dennis;Schiemann, Gregor;Scholz, Erhard 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Birkh??user
2. Springer New York, 2017. 
Description  VIII, 335 p. 7 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This contributed volume is the result of a July 2010 workshop at the University of Wuppertal Interdisciplinary Centre for Science and Technology Studies which brought together worldwide experts from physics, philosophy and history, in order to address a set of questions first posed in the 1950s: How do we compare spacetime theories? How do we judge, objectively, which is the ???best??? theory? Is there even a unique answer to this question? The goal of the workshop, and of this book, is to contribute to the development of a metatheory of spacetime theories. Such a metatheory would reveal insights about specific spacetime theories by distilling their essential similarities and differences, deliver a framework for a class of theories that could be helpful as a blueprint to build other metatheories, and provide a higher level viewpoint for judging which theory most accurately describes nature. But rather than drawing a map in broad strokes, the focus is on particularly rich regions in the ???space of spacetime theories.??? This work will be of interest to physicists, as well as philosophers and historians of science working with or interested in General Relativity and/or Space, Time and Gravitation more generally

Title  One Hundred Years of Gauge Theory : Past, Present and Future Perspectives 
Author(s)  De Bianchi, Silvia;Kiefer, Claus 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XII, 313 p. 28 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a multidisciplinary guide to gauge theory and gravity, with chapters by the world???s leading theoretical physicists, mathematicians, historians and philosophers of science. The contributions from theoretical physics explore e.g. the consistency of the unification of gravitation and quantum theory, the underpinnings of experimental tests of gauge theory and its role in shedding light on the relationship between mathematics and physics. In turn, historians and philosophers of science assess the impact of Weyl???s view on the philosophy of science. Graduate students, lecturers and researchers in the fields of history of science, theoretical physics and philosophy of science will benefit from this book by learning about the role played by Weyl???s RaumZeitMaterie in shaping several modern research fields, and by gaining insights into the future prospects of gauge theory in both theoretical and experimental physics. Furthermore, the book facilitates interdisciplinary exchange and conceptual innovation in tackling fundamental questions about our deepest theories of physics.

Title  A Mathematical Journey to Relativity : Deriving Special and General Relativity with Basic Mathematics 
Author(s)  Boskoff, WladimirGeorges;Capozziello, Salvatore 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XXII, 397 p. 44 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book opens with an axiomatic description of Euclidean and nonEuclidean geometries. Euclidean geometry is the starting point to understand all other geometries and it is the cornerstone for our basic intuition of vector spaces. The generalization to nonEuclidean geometry is the following step to develop the language of Special and General Relativity. These theories are discussed starting from a full geometric point of view. Differential geometry is presented in the simplest way and it is applied to describe the physical world. The final result of this construction is deriving the Einstein field equations for gravitation and spacetime dynamics. Possible solutions, and their physical implications are also discussed: the Schwarzschild metric, the relativistic trajectory of planets, the deflection of light, the black holes, the cosmological solutions like de Sitter, FriedmannLema??treRobertsonWalker, and G??del ones. Some current problems like dark energy are also scketched. The book is selfcontained and includes details of all proofs. It provides solutions or tips to solve problems and exercises. It is designed for undergraduate students and for all readers who want a first geometric approach to Special and General Relativity

Title  Classical and Quantum Physics : 60 Years Alberto Ibort Fest Geometry, Dynamics, and Control 
Author(s)  Marmo, G;Mart??n de Diego, David;Mu??oz Lecanda, Miguel 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XXVI, 374 p. 46 illus., 14 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This proceedings is based on the interdisciplinary workshop held in Madrid, 59 March 2018, dedicated to Alberto Ibort on his 60th birthday. Alberto has great and significantly contributed to many fields of mathematics and physics, always with highly original and innovative ideas. Most of Albertos???s scientific activity has been motivated by geometric ideas, concepts and tools that are deeply related to the framework of classical dynamics and quantum mechanics. Let us mention some of the fields of expertise of Alberto Ibort: Geometric Mechanics; Constrained Systems; Variational Principles; Multisymplectic structures for field theories; Super manifolds; Inverse problem for Bosonic and Fermionic systems; Quantum Groups, Integrable systems, BRST Symmetries; Implicit differential equations; YangMills Theories; BiHamiltonian Systems; Topology Change and Quantum Boundary Conditions; Classical and Quantum Control; Orthogonal Polynomials; Quantum Field Theory and Noncommutative Spaces; Classical and Quantum Tomography; Quantum Mechanics on phase space; WignerWeyl formalism; LieJordan Algebras, Classical and Quantum; QuantumtoClassical transition; Contraction of Associative Algebras; contact geometry, among many others. In each contribution, one may find not only technical novelties but also completely new way of looking at the considered problems. Even an experienced reader, reading Alberto's contributions on his field of expertise, will find new perspectives on the considered topic. His enthusiasm is happily contagious, for this reason he has had, and still has, very bright students wishing to elaborate their PhD thesis under his guidance.What is more impressive, is the broad list of rather different topics on which he has contributed
