Title  Quantum fields: From the Hubble to the Planck Scale 
Author(s)  Michael Kachelriess 
Publication  Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2017. 
Description  xv, 528p. 
Abstract Note  cosmology and astroparticle physics, in a coherent framework. The pathintegral approach is employed right from the start, and the use of Green functions and generating functionals is illustrated first in quantum mechanics and then in scalar field theory. Massless spin one and two fields are discussed on an equal footing, and gravity is presented as a gauge theory in close analogy with the Yang–Mills case. Concepts relevant to modern research such as helicity methods, effective theories, decoupling, or the stability of the electroweak vacuum are introduced. Various applications such as topological defects, dark matter, baryogenesis, processes in external gravitational fields, inflation and black holes help students to bridge the gap between undergraduate courses and the research literature.

Title  Quantum divide: Why Schrodinger's Cat is Either Dear or Alive 
Author(s)  Christopher C. Gerry;Kimberley M. Bruno 
Publication  Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2013. 
Description  vii, 201p. 
Abstract Note  Using a selection of key experiments performed over the past 30 years or so, we present a discussion of the strikingly counterintuitive phenomena of the quantum world that defy explanation in terms of everyday "common sense" reasoning, and we provide the corresponding quantum mechanical explanations with a very elementary use of associated formalism. Most, but certainly not all, of the experiments we describe are optical experiments involving a very small number of photons (particles of light). We begin with experiments on the waveparticle duality of electrons, proceed to experiments on the particle nature of light and single photon interference, delayed choice experiments and interactionfree detection, then go on to experiments involving the interference of two photons, quantum entanglement and Bell's Theorem, quantum teleportation, largescale quantum effects and the divide between the classical and quantum worlds, addressing the question as to whether or not there is such a divide.

Title  Quantum field theory: The Why, What and How 
Author(s)  Thanu Padmanabhan 
Publication  Cham, Springer, 2016. 
Description  xvii, 283p. 
Series  (Graduate Texts in Physics) 
Abstract Note  This book describes, in clear terms, the Why, What and the How of Quantum Field Theory. The raison d'etre of QFT is explained by starting from the dynamics of a relativistic particle and demonstrating how it leads to the notion of quantum fields. Nonperturbative aspects and the Wilsonian interpretation of field theory are emphasized right from the start. Several interesting topics such as the Schwinger effect, DaviesUnruh effect, Casimir effect and spontaneous symmetry breaking introduce the reader to the elegance and breadth of applicability of field theoretical concepts. Complementing the conceptual aspects, the book also develops all the relevant mathematical techniques in detail, leading e.g., to the computation of anomalous magnetic moment of the electron and the twoloop renormalisation of the selfinteracting scalar field. It contains nearly a hundred problems, of varying degrees of difficulty, making it suitable for both selfstudy and classroom use.

Title  Mind and reality: The SpaceTime Window 
Author(s)  Wolfram Schommers 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2015. 
Description  xvi, 306p. 
Abstract Note  The relationship between mind and reality is usually perceived as an event that takes place in reality and producing simultaneously an internal image in the mind. So it takes place twice, so to speak, and there is a onetoone correspondence between the two events. Within this conception, matter is embedded in space and time, and can be designated as âcontainerprincipleâ. This monograph emphasizes that the wellknown philosopher Immanuel Kant denied this principle and he stated that reality is principally not recognizable to a human being, and modern biological evolution seems to lead exactly to Kant's point of view. Within the theory of evolution, man's image about reality in mind does not have to be complete and true in the sense of a precise reproduction, and it is relatively easy to recognize that even space and time should not be elements of reality outside. Within this conception, only a certain part of reality, which the human being needs for mastering life, is projected onto space and time, and we come to the socalled âprojection principleâ. Then, spacetime defines the window to reality, leading to a number of exciting and essential questions, some of which are discussed in this monograph.
As is known, current physics is mainly based on the containerprinciple. But this monograph proposes that the projection principle is obviously more suitable and could help to solve openended questions as, for example, in connection with the nature of time, the particlewave duality, the cosmological constant, etc. Regarding the statistical behavior of matter, Einstein's statement "God does not play dice" has to be seen in a new light, but also Feynman's general viewpoint on quantum theory that it cannot be understood by man. However, conventional quantum theory is obviously not a consistent framework as per the projection principle. The term âworld equationâ is critically probed in this monograph.

Title  Einstein and the quantum: The Quest of the Valiant Swabian 
Author(s)  A. Douglas Stone 
Publication  Princeton, Princeton University Press, 2013. 
Description  x, 332p. 
Abstract Note  Einstein and the Quantum reveals for the first time the full significance of Albert Einstein's contributions to quantum theory. Einstein famously rejected quantum mechanics, observing that God does not play dice. But, in fact, he thought more about the nature of atoms, molecules, and the emission and absorption of lightthe core of what we now know as quantum theorythan he did about relativity.
A compelling blend of physics, biography, and the history of science, Einstein and the Quantum shares the untold story of how Einsteinnot Max Planck or Niels Bohrwas the driving force behind early quantum theory. It paints a vivid portrait of the iconic physicist as he grappled with the apparently contradictory nature of the atomic world, in which its invisible constituents defy the categories of classical physics, behaving simultaneously as both particle and wave. And it demonstrates how Einstein's later work on the emission and absorption of light, and on atomic gases, led directly to Erwin SchrÃ¶dinger's breakthrough to the modern form of quantum mechanics. The book sheds light on why Einstein ultimately renounced his own brilliant work on quantum theory, due to his deep belief in science as something objective and eternal.

Title  Structural aspects of quantum field theory Vol. 1 
Author(s)  Gerhard Grensing 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2013. 
Description  xxxii, 849p. 
Abstract Note  This book is devoted to the subject of quantum field theory. It is divided into two volumes. The first can serve as a textbook on the main techniques and results of quantum field theory, while the second treats more recent developments, in particular the subject of quantum groups and noncommutative geometry, and their interrelation.
The first volume is directed at graduate students who want to learn the basic facts about quantum field theory. It begins with a gentle introduction to classical field theory, including the standard model of particle physics, general relativity, and also supergravity. The transition to quantized fields is performed with path integral techniques, by means of which the oneloop renormalization of a selfinteracting scalar quantum field, of quantum electrodynamics, and the asymptotic freedom of quantum chromodynamics is treated. In the last part of the first volume, the application of path integral methods to systems of quantum statistical mechanics is covered. The book ends with a rather detailed investigation of the fractional quantum Hall effect, and gives a stringent derivation of Laughlin's trial ground state wave function as an exact ground state.
