Title  Gravity and the Quantum: Pedagogical Essays on Cosmology, Astrophysics, and Quantum Gravity 
Author(s)  Jasjeet Singh Bagla (ed.);Sunu Engineer (ed.) 
Publication  Switzerland, Springer, 2017. 
Description  XII, 494 p. 54 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a compilation of indepth articles and reviews on key topics within gravitation, cosmology and related issues. It is a celebratory volume dedicated to Prof. Thanu Padmanabhan ("Paddy"), the renowned relativist and cosmologist from IUCAA, India, on the occasion of his 60th birthday. The authors, many of them leaders of their fields, are all colleagues, collaborators and former students of Paddy, who have worked with him over a research career spanning more than four decades. Paddy is a scientist of diverse interests, who attaches great importance to teaching. With this in mind, the aim of this compilation is to provide an accessible pedagogic introduction to, and overview of, various important topics in cosmology, gravitation and astrophysics. As such it will be an invaluable resource for scientists, graduate students and also advanced undergraduates seeking to broaden their horizons

Title  Quantum field theory: The Why, What and How 
Author(s)  Thanu Padmanabhan 
Publication  Cham, Springer, 2016. 
Description  xvii, 283p. 
Series  (Graduate Texts in Physics) 
Abstract Note  This book describes, in clear terms, the Why, What and the How of Quantum Field Theory. The raison d'etre of QFT is explained by starting from the dynamics of a relativistic particle and demonstrating how it leads to the notion of quantum fields. Nonperturbative aspects and the Wilsonian interpretation of field theory are emphasized right from the start. Several interesting topics such as the Schwinger effect, DaviesUnruh effect, Casimir effect and spontaneous symmetry breaking introduce the reader to the elegance and breadth of applicability of field theoretical concepts. Complementing the conceptual aspects, the book also develops all the relevant mathematical techniques in detail, leading e.g., to the computation of anomalous magnetic moment of the electron and the twoloop renormalisation of the selfinteracting scalar field. It contains nearly a hundred problems, of varying degrees of difficulty, making it suitable for both selfstudy and classroom use.

Title  Theory of thirdorder differntial equations 
Author(s)  Seshadev Padhi;Smita Pati 
Publication  New Delhi, Springer, 2014. 
Description  xv, 505p. 
Abstract Note  This book discusses the theory of thirdorder differential equations. Most of the results are derived from the results obtained for thirdorder linear homogeneous differential equations with constant coefficients. M. Gregus, in his book written in 1987, only deals with thirdorder linear differential equations. These findings are old, and new techniques have since been developed and new results obtained. 
Contents Note  Chapter 1 introduces the results for oscillation and nonoscillation of solutions of thirdorder linear differential equations with constant coefficients, and a brief introduction to delay differential equations is given. The oscillation and asymptotic behavior of nonoscillatory solutions of homogeneous thirdorder linear differential equations with variable coefficients are discussed in Ch. 2. The results are extended to thirdorder linear nonhomogeneous equations in Ch. 3, while Ch. 4 explains the oscillation and nonoscillation results for homogeneous thirdorder nonlinear differential equations. Chapter 5 deals with the ztype oscillation and nonoscillation of thirdorder nonlinear and nonhomogeneous differential equations. Chapter 6 is devoted to the study of thirdorder delay differential equations. Chapter 7 explains the stability of solutions of thirdorder equations. Some knowledge of differential equations, analysis and algebra is desirable, but not essential, in order to study the topic.

Title  Statistical methods for astronomical data analysis 
Author(s)  Asis Kumar Chattopadhyay;Tanuka Chattopadhyay 
Publication  New York, Springer, 2014. 
Description  xiii, 349p. 
Series  (Springer Series in Astrostatistics) 
Abstract Note  This book introduces 'Astrostatistics' as a subject in its own right with rewarding examples, including work by the authors with galaxy and Gamma Ray Burst data to engage the reader. This includes a comprehensive blending of Astrophysics and Statistics. The first chapter's coverage of preliminary concepts and terminologies for astronomical phenomenon will appeal to both Statistics and Astrophysics readers as helpful context. Statistics concepts covered in the book provide a methodological framework. A unique feature is the inclusion of different possible sources of astronomical data, as well as software packages for converting the raw data into appropriate forms for data analysis. Readers can then use the appropriate statistical packages for their particular data analysis needs. The ideas of statistical inference discussed in the book help readers determine how to apply statistical tests. The authors cover different applications of statistical techniques already developed or specifically introduced for astronomical problems, including regression techniques, along with their usefulness for data set problems related to size and dimension. Analysis of missing data is an important part of the book because of its significance for work with astronomical data. Both existing and new techniques related to dimension reduction and clustering are illustrated through examples. There is detailed coverage of applications useful for classification, discrimination, data mining and time series analysis. Later chapters explain simulation techniques useful for the development of physical models where it is difficult or impossible to collect data. Finally, coverage of the many R programs for techniques discussed makes this book a fantastic practical reference. Readers may apply what they learn directly to their data sets in addition to the data sets included by the authors.

Title  Laser guide star adaptive optics for astronomy: Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute Cargese, France September 29  October 10, 1997 
Author(s)  N. Ageorges (ed.);C. Dainty (ed.) 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Kluwer Academic Publishers
2. Springer, 2000. 
Description  xxiii, 340p. 
Series  (NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series C: Mathematical and Physical Sciences) 
Abstract Note  Adaptive optics allows the theoretical limit of angular resolution to be achieved from a large telescope, despite the presence of turbulence. Thus an eight meter class telescope, such as one of the four in the Very Large Telescope operated by ESO in Chile, will in future be routinely capable of an angular resolution of almost 0.01 arcsec, compared tot he present resolution of about 0.5 arcsec for conventional imaging in good condition.
All the world's major telescopes either have adaptive optics or are in the process of building AO systems. It turns out that a reasonable fraction of the sky can be observed using adaptive optics, with moderately good imaging quality, provided imaging in done in the near IR. To move out of the near IR, with its relatively poor angular resolution, astronomers need a laser guide star. There is a layer of Na atoms at approximately 90 km altitude that can be excited by a laser to produce such a source, or Rayleigh scattering can be employed lower in the atmosphere. But the production and use of laser guide stars is not trivial, and the key issues determining their successful implementation are discussed here, including the physics of the Na atom, the cone effect, tilt determination, sky coverage, and numerous potential astronomical applications.
