Title  The Interaction of Spin with Gravity in Particle Physics : Low Energy Quantum Gravity 
Author(s)  Lambiase, Gaetano;Papini, Giorgio 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XV, 190 p. 12 illus., 7 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book seeks to present a new way of thinking about the interaction of gravitational fields with quantum systems. Despite the massive amounts of research and experimentation, the myriad meetings, seminars and conferences, all of the articles, treatises and books, and the seemingly endless theorization, quantization and just plain speculation that have been engaged in regarding our evolving understanding of the quantum world, that world remains an enigma, even to the experts. The usefulness of general relativity in this regard has proven to be imperfect at best, but there is a new approach. We do not simply have to accept the limitations of Einstein's most celebrated theorem in regard to quantum theory; we can also embrace them, and thereby utilize them, to reveal new facts about the behavior of quantum systems within inertial and gravitational fields, and therefore about the very structure of space???time at the quantum level. By taking existing knowledge of the essential functionality of spin (along with the careful identification of the omnipresent inertial effects) and applying it to the quantum world, the book gives the reader a much clearer picture of the difference between the classical and quantum behaviors of a particle, shows that Einstein's ideas may not be as incompatible within this realm as many have come to believe, sparks new revelations of the way in which gravity affects quantum systems and brings a new level of efficiency???quantum efficiency, if you will???to the study of gravitational theory

Title  Don't Be Afraid of Physics : Quantum Mechanics, Relativity and Cosmology for Everyone 
Author(s)  Barrett, Ross;Delsanto, Pier Paolo 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XVIII, 293 p. 79 illus., 48 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  With the aid of entertaining short stories, anecdotes, lucid explanations and straightforward figures, this book challenges the perception that the world of physics is inaccessible to the nonexpert. Beginning with Neanderthal man, it traces the evolution of human reason and understanding from paradoxes and optical illusions to gravitational waves, black holes and dark energy. On the way, it provides insights into the mindboggling advances at the frontiers of physics and cosmology. Unsolved problems and contradictions are highlighted, and contentious issues in modern physics are discussed in a nondogmatic way in a language comprehensible to the nonscientist. It has something for everyone

Title  Local Quantum Measurement and Relativity 
Author(s)  Beck, Christian 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XIII, 392 p. 13 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book treats various aspects of the quantum theory of measurement, partially in a relativistic framework. Measurement(like) processes in quantum theory are identified and analysed; and the quantum operator formalism is derived in full generality without postulating operators as observables. Consistency conditions are derived, expressing the requirement of Lorentzframe independence of outcomes of spacelike separated measurements and implying the impossibility of using quantum nonlocality to send signals faster than light. Local commutativity is scrutinized. The localization problem of relativistic quantum theory is studied, including comprehensive derivation of the theorems of Hegerfeld, Malament and ReehSchlieder. Finally, the quantum formalism is derived from the dynamics of particles with definite positions in Bohmian mechanics

Title  Foundations of Modern Physics 
Author(s)  Steven Weinberg 
Publication  Cambridge, Oxford University Press, 2021. 
Description  xiv, 310p. 
Abstract Note  In addition to his groundbreaking research, Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg is known for a series of highly praised texts on various aspects of physics, combining exceptional physical insight with his gift for clear exposition. Describing the foundations of modern physics in their historical context and with some new derivations, Weinberg introduces topics ranging from early applications of atomic theory through thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, transport theory, special relativity, quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, and quantum field theory. This volume provides the basis for advanced undergraduate and graduate physics courses as well as being a handy introduction to aspects of modern physics for working scientists.

Title  Relativity in modern physics 
Author(s)  Nathalie Deruelle;JeanPhilippe Uzan 
Publication  Oxford University Press 2018. 
Abstract Note  Newton’s ideas about how to represent space and time, his laws of dynamics, and his theory of gravitation established the conceptual foundation from which modern physics developed. This book offers a modern view of Newtonian theory, emphasizing those aspects needed for understanding quantum and relativistic contemporary physics. In 1905, Albert Einstein proposed a novel representation of space and time, special relativity. The text also presents relativistic dynamics in inertial and accelerated frames, as well as a detailed overview of Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetism, thus providing the background necessary for studying particle and accelerator physics, astrophysics, and Einstein’s theory of general relativity. In 1915, Einstein proposed a new theory of gravitation, general relativity. Finally, the text develops the geometrical framework in which Einstein’s equations are formulated and presents several key applications: black holes, gravitational radiation, and cosmology.

Title  Introduction to cosmology 
Author(s)  Barbara Ryden 
Edition  2nd ed. 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2016. 
Description  xii,264p. 
Abstract Note  his second edition of Introduction to Cosmology is an exciting update of an awardwinning textbook. It is aimed primarily at advanced undergraduate students in physics and astronomy, but is also useful as a supplementary text at higher levels. It explains modern cosmological concepts, such as dark energy, in the context of the Big Bang theory. Its clear, lucid writing style, with a wealth of useful everyday analogies, makes it exceptionally engaging. Emphasis is placed on the links between theoretical concepts of cosmology and the observable properties of the universe, building deeper physical insights in the reader. The second edition includes recent observational results, fuller descriptions of special and general relativity, expanded discussions of dark energy, and a new chapter on baryonic matter that makes up stars and galaxies. It is an ideal textbook for the era of precision cosmology in the accelerating universe.
