TitleEinstein Gravity in a Nutshell
Author(s)A. Zee
PublicationPrinceton, Princeton University Press, 2013.
Descriptionxxii, 866p.
Abstract NoteThis unique textbook provides an accessible introduction to Einstein's general theory of relativity, a subject of breathtaking beauty and supreme importance in physics. With his trademark blend of wit and incisiveness, A. Zee guides readers from the fundamentals of Newtonian mechanics to the most exciting frontiers of research today, including de Sitter and anti-de Sitter spacetimes, Kaluza-Klein theory, and brane worlds. Unlike other books on Einstein gravity, this book emphasizes the action principle and group theory as guides in constructing physical theories. Zee treats various topics in a spiral style that is easy on beginners, and includes anecdotes from the history of physics that will appeal to students and experts alike. He takes a friendly approach to the required mathematics, yet does not shy away from more advanced mathematical topics such as differential forms. The extensive discussion of black holes includes rotating and extremal black holes and Hawking radiation. The ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate students, Einstein Gravity in a Nutshell also provides an essential resource for professional physicists and is accessible to anyone familiar with classical mechanics and electromagnetism. It features numerous exercises as well as detailed appendices covering a multitude of topics not readily found elsewhere.

TitleSleeping beauties in theoretical physics: 26 Surprising Insights
Author(s)Thanu Padmanabhan
PublicationCham, Springer, 2015.
Descriptionxvi, 302p.
Series(Lecture Notes in Physics)
Abstract NoteThis book addresses a fascinating set of questions in theoretical physics which will both entertain and enlighten all students, teachers and researchers and other physics aficionados. These range from Newtonian mechanics to quantum field theory and cover several puzzling issues that do not appear in standard textbooks. Some topics cover conceptual conundrums, the solutions to which lead to surprising insights; some correct popular misconceptions in the textbook discussion of certain topics; others illustrate deep connections between apparently unconnected domains of theoretical physics; and a few provide remarkably simple derivations of results which are not often appreciated. The connoisseur of theoretical physics will enjoy a feast of pleasant surprises skilfully prepared by an internationally acclaimed theoretical physicist. Each topic is introduced with proper background discussion and special effort is taken to make the discussion self-contained, clear and comprehensible to anyone with an undergraduate education in physics.
Contents NoteThe Grand Cube of Theoretical Physics; The Emergence of Classical Physics; Orbits of Planets are Circles!; The Importance of being Inverse-square; Potential surprises in Newtonian Gravity; Lagrange and his Points; Getting the most of it!; Surprises in Fluid Flows; Isochronous Curiosities: Classical and Quantum; Logarithms of Nature; Curved Spacetime for pedestrians; Black hole is a Hot Topic; Thomas and his Precession; When Thomas met Foucault; The One-body Problem; The Straight and Narrow Path of Waves; If Quantum Mechanics is the Paraxial Optics, then …; Make it Complex to Simplify; Nothing matters a lot; Radiation: Caterpillar becomes Butterfly; Photon: Wave and/or Particle; Angular Momentum without Rotation; Ubiquitous Random Walk; More on Random Walks: Circuits and a Tired Drunkard; Gravitational Instability of the Isothermal Sphere; Gravity bends electric field lines
