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.

Title  Modern classical physics: Optics, Fluids, Plasmas, Elasticity, Relativity, and Statistical Physics 
Author(s)  Kip S. Thorne ;Roger D. Blandford 
Publication  Princeton , Princeton University Press, 2017. 
Description  xl, 1511p. 
Abstract Note  This firstyear, graduatelevel text and reference book covers the fundamental concepts and twentyfirstcentury applications of six major areas of classical physics that every masters or PhDlevel physicist should be exposed to, but often isn't: statistical physics, optics (waves of all sorts), elastodynamics, fluid mechanics, plasma physics, and special and general relativity and cosmology. this book is designed to broaden the training of physicists. Its six main topical sections are also designed so they can be used in separate courses, and the book provides an invaluable reference for researchers.

Title  Essential radio astronomy 
Author(s)  James J. Condon ;Scott M. Ransom 
Publication  Princeton, Princeton University Press, 2016. 
Description  x, 363p. 
Series  (Princeton Series in Modern Observational Astronomy) 
Abstract Note  Essential Radio Astronomy is the only textbook on the subject specifically designed for a onesemester introductory course for advanced undergraduates or graduate students in astronomy and astrophysics.
It starts from first principles in order to fill gaps in students' backgrounds, make teaching easier for professors who are not expert radio astronomers, and provide a useful reference to the essential equations used by practitioners.
This unique textbook reflects the fact that students of multiwavelength astronomy typically can afford to spend only one semester studying the observational techniques particular to each wavelength band.
Essential Radio Astronomy presents only the most crucial conceptssuccinctly and accessibly. It covers the general principles behind radio telescopes, receivers, and digital backends without getting bogged down in engineering details.
Emphasizing the physical processes in radio sources, the book's approach is shaped by the view that radio astrophysics owes more to thermodynamics than electromagnetism.
Proven in the classroom and generously illustrated throughout, Essential Radio Astronomy is an invaluable resource for students and researchers alike.

Title  Introduction to general relativity, black holes and cosmology 
Author(s)  Yvonne ChoquetBruhat 
Publication  Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2015. 
Description  xx, 279p. 
Abstract Note  General Relativity is a beautiful geometric theory, simple in its mathematical formulation but leading to numerous consequences with striking physical interpretations: gravitational waves, black holes, cosmological models, and so on.
This introductory textbook is written for mathematics students interested in physics and physics students interested in exact mathematical formulations (or for anyone with a scientific mind who is curious to know more of the world we live in), recent remarkable experimental and observational results which confirm the theory are clearly described and no specialised physics knowledge is required. The mathematical level of Part A is aimed at undergraduate students and could be the basis for a course on General Relativity. Part B is more advanced, but still does not require sophisticated mathematics.

Title  College course on relativity and cosmology 
Author(s)  TaPei Cheng 
Publication  Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2015. 
Description  xii, 292p. 
Abstract Note  This advanced undergraduate text introduces Einstein's general theory of relativity. The topics covered include geometric formulation of special relativity, the principle of equivalence, Einstein's field equation and its sphericalsymmetric solution, as well as cosmology. An emphasis is placed on physical examples and simple applications without the full tensor apparatus. It begins by examining the physics of the equivalence principle and looks at how it inspired Einstein's idea of curved spacetime as the gravitational field. At a more mathematically accessible level, it provides a metric description of a warped space, allowing the reader to study many interesting phenomena such as gravitational time dilation, GPS operation, light deflection, precession of Mercury's perihelion, and black holes. Numerous modern topics in cosmology are discussed from primordial inflation and cosmic microwave background to the dark energy that propels an accelerating universe.

Title  Einstein's physics: Atoms, Quanta, and Relativity Derived, Explained, and Appraised 
Author(s)  TaPei Cheng 
Publication  Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2013. 
Description  xx, 350p. 
Abstract Note  This is a physics book with material presented in the historical context. We do not stop at Einstein's discovery, but carry the discussion onto some of the later advances: Bell's theorem, quantum field theory, gauge theories and KaluzaKlein unification in a spacetime with an extra spatial dimension.
Accessibility of the material to a modernday reader is the goal of our presentation. Although the book is written with primarily a physics readership in mind (it can also function as a textbook), enough pedagogical support material is provided that anyone with a solid background in introductory physics can, with some effort, understand a good part of this presentation.
