Title  Physical world: An Inspirational Tour of Fundamental Physics 
Author(s)  Nicholas Manton;Nicholas Mee 
Publication  Oxford University Press 2017. 
Abstract Note  The book is an inspirational survey of fundamental physics, emphasizing the use of variational principles. Chapter 1 presents introductory ideas, including the principle of least action, vectors and partial differentiation. Chapter 2 covers Newtonian dynamics and the motion of mutually gravitating bodies. Chapter 3 is about electromagnetic fields as described by Maxwell’s equations. Chapter 4 is about special relativity, which unifies space and time into 4dimensional spacetime. Chapter 5 introduces the mathematics of curved space, leading to Chapter 6 covering general relativity and its remarkable consequences, such as the existence of black holes. Chapters 7 and 8 present quantum mechanics, essential for understanding atomicscale phenomena. Chapter 9 uses quantum mechanics to explain the fundamental principles of chemistry and solid state physics. Chapter 10 is about thermodynamics, which is built around the concepts of temperature and entropy. Various applications are discussed, including the analysis of black body radiation that led to the quantum revolution. Chapter 11 surveys the atomic nucleus, its properties and applications. Chapter 12 explores particle physics, the Standard Model and the Higgs mechanism, with a short introduction to quantum field theory. Chapter 13 is about the structure and evolution of stars and brings together material from many of the earlier chapters. Chapter 14 on cosmology describes the structure and evolution of the universe as a whole. Finally, Chapter 15 discusses remaining problems at the frontiers of physics, such as the interpretation of quantum mechanics, and the ultimate nature of particles. Some speculative ideas are explored, such as supersymmetry, solitons and string theory.

Quantum Weirdness
William J. Mullin
Abstract
The predictions of quantum mechanics and their interpretation lead to many surprises, for example, the ability to detect the characteristics of an object without ever probing it in any way, via “interactionfree measurement,” the ability of a particle to tunnel through an energetically forbidden region, or teleportation of an atom. Quantum mechanics often seems downright bizarre, which is why it can be described as having “quantum weirdness.” The book starts with a discussion of the basic physics of waves and then introduces the fundamentals of quantum mechanics, including the wave function, superposition, entanglement, Bell’s theorem, the four forces, matter waves, bosons, fermions, etc., and applications to effects such as Bose–Einstein condensation, quantum computing, and much more. It also discusses the various world views that have been proposed to understand what the mathematics of quantum mechanics means. This includes some very recent advances, for example, quantum Bayesianism and measurements of the reality of the wave function. Quantum mechanics is a subtle subject that involves some complicated mathematics—calculus, partial differential equations, the theory of Hilbert spaces, etc.—for complete understanding. In order to give a deeper grasp of quantum mechanics than most texts for a general audience, this book treats the subject mathematically, but only at the level of highschool algebra and trigonometry. Thus, readers with that level of mathematics can learn much about this fundamental science of all nature. An appendix covers some useful background in classical physics, such as momentum and energy.

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  Symmetries in quantum mechanics: From Angular Momentum to Supersymmetry 
Author(s)  Masud Chaichian;Rolf Hagedorn 
Publication  New York, Taylor and Francis, 1994. 
Description  xiv, 303p. 
Series  (Graduate Student Series in Physics) 
Abstract Note  Symmetries in Quantum Mechanics: From Angular Momentum to Supersymmetry (PBK) provides a thorough, didactic exposition of the role of symmetry, particularly rotational symmetry, in quantum mechanics. The bulk of the book covers the description of rotations (geometrically and grouptheoretically) and their representations, and the quantum theory of angular momentum. Later chapters introduce more advanced topics such as relativistic theory, supersymmetry, anyons, fractional spin, and statistics. With clear, indepth explanations, the book is ideal for use as a course text for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students in physics and those specializing in theoretical physics. It is also useful for researchers looking for an accessible introduction to this important area of quantum theory.
