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.

Title  Path integrals, hyperbolic spaces and selberg trace formulae 
Author(s)  Christian Grosche 
Edition  2nd. 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2013. 
Description  xvi, 372p. 
Abstract Note  In this second edition, a comprehensive review is given for path integration in two and threedimensional (homogeneous) spaces of constant and nonconstant curvature, including an enumeration of all the corresponding coordinate systems which allow separation of variables in the Hamiltonian and in the path integral. The corresponding path integral solutions are presented as a tabulation. Proposals concerning interbasis expansions for spheroidal coordinate systems are also given. In particular, the cases of nonconstant curvature Darboux spaces are new in this edition. The volume also contains results on the numerical study of the properties of several integrable billiard systems in compact domains (i.e. rectangles, parallelepipeds, circles and spheres) in two and threedimensional flat and hyperbolic spaces. In particular, the discussion of integrable billiards in circles and spheres (flat and hyperbolic space) and in three dimensions are new in comparison to the first edition. In addition, an overview is presented on some recent achievements in the theory of the Selberg trace formula on Riemann surfaces, its super generalization, their use in mathematical physics and string theory, and some further results derived from the Selberg (super) trace formula.

Title  Classical solutions in quantum field theory: Solitons and Instantons in High Energy Physics 
Author(s)  Erick J. Weinberg 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2012. 
Description  xiv, 326p. 
Series  (Cambridge monographs on mathematical physics) 
Abstract Note  Classical solutions play an important role in quantum field theory, high energy physics and cosmology. Realtime soliton solutions give rise to particles, such as magnetic monopoles, and extended structures, such as domain walls and cosmic strings, that have implications for early universe cosmology. Imaginarytime Euclidean instantons are responsible for important nonperturbative effects, while Euclidean bounce solutions govern transitions between metastable states. Written for advanced graduate students and researchers in elementary particle physics, cosmology and related fields, this book brings the reader up to the level of current research in the field. The first half of the book discusses the most important classes of solitons: kinks, vortices and magnetic monopoles. The cosmological and observational constraints on these are covered, as are more formal aspects, including BPS solitons and their connection with supersymmetry. The second half is devoted to Euclidean solutions, with particular emphasis on YangâMills instantons and on bounce solutions.

Title  Dreams that stuff is made of: The Most Astounding Papers on Quantum Physics and How They Shook the Scientific World 
Author(s)  Stephen Hawking (Ed.) 
Publication  Philadelphia, Running Press, 2011. 
Description  xi, 1071p. 
Abstract Note  The Dreams That Stuff Is Made Of compiles the essential works from the scientists who sparked the paradigm shift that changed the face of physics forever, pushing our understanding of the universe on to an entirely new level of comprehension. Gathered in this anthology is the scholarship that shocked and befuddled the scientific world, including works by Niels Bohr, Max Planck, Werner Heisenberg, Max Born, Erwin Schrodinger, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Richard Feynman, as well as an introduction by todayâs most celebrated scientist, Stephen Hawking.

Title  Quantum physics: Illusion or reality? 
Author(s)  Alastair I.M. Rae 
Edition  2nd. 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2012. 
Description  xi, 144p. 
Abstract Note  Quantum physics is believed to be the fundamental theory underlying our understanding of the physical universe. However, it is based on concepts and principles that have always been difficult to understand and controversial in their interpretation. This book aims to explain these issues using a minimum of technical language and mathematics. After a brief introduction to the ideas of quantum physics, the problems of interpretation are identified and explained. The rest of the book surveys, describes and criticises a range of suggestions that have been made with the aim of resolving these problems; these include the traditional, or 'Copenhagen' interpretation, the possible role of the conscious mind in measurement and the postulate of parallel universes. This new edition has been revised throughout to take into account developments in this field over the past fifteen years, including the idea of 'consistent histories' to which a completely new chapter is devoted.
