Title  Grobner bases: A Computational Approach to Commutative Algebra 
Author(s)  Thomas Becker;Volker Weispfenning 
Publication  New York, SpringerVerlag, 1993. 
Description  xxii, 574p. 
Series  (Graduate Texts in Mathematics) 
Abstract Note  The origins of the mathematics in this book date back more than two thou sand years, as can be seen from the fact that one of the most important algorithms presented here bears the name of the Greek mathematician Eu clid. The word "algorithm" as well as the key word "algebra" in the title of this book come from the name and the work of the ninthcentury scientist Mohammed ibn Musa alKhowarizmi, who was born in what is now Uzbek istan and worked in Baghdad at the court of Harun alRashid's son. The word "algorithm" is actually a westernization of alKhowarizmi's name, while "algebra" derives from "aljabr," a term that appears in the title of his book Kitab aljabr wa'l muqabala, where he discusses symbolic methods for the solution of equations. This close connection between algebra and al gorithms lasted roughly up to the beginning of this century; until then, the primary goal of algebra was the design of constructive methods for solving equations by means of symbolic transformations. During the second half of the nineteenth century, a new line of thought began to enter algebra from the realm of geometry, where it had been successful since Euclid's time, namely, the axiomatic method.

Title  Springer handbook of spacetime 
Author(s)  Abhay Ashtekar (ed.);Vesselin Petkov (ed.) 
Publication  Berlin, SpringerVerlag, 2014. 
Description  xxvi, 887p. : With 190 figures adn 9 Tables 
Abstract Note  The Springer Handbook of Spacetime is dedicated to the groundbreaking paradigm shifts embodied in the two relativity theories, and describes in detail the profound reshaping of physical sciences they ushered in. It includes in a single volume chapters on foundations, on the underlying mathematics, on physical and astrophysical implications, experimental evidence and cosmological predictions, as well as chapters on efforts to unify general relativity and quantum physics. The Handbook can be used as a desk reference by researchers in a wide variety of fields, not only by specialists in relativity but also by researchers in related areas that either grew out of, or are deeply influenced by, the two relativity theories: cosmology, astronomy and astrophysics, high energy physics, quantum field theory, mathematics, and philosophy of science. It should also serve as a valuable resource for graduate students and young researchers entering these areas, and for instructors who teach courses on these subjects. 
Contents Note  The Handbook is divided into six parts. Part A: Introduction to Spacetime Structure. Part B: Foundational Issues. Part C: Spacetime Structure and Mathematics. Part D: Confronting Relativity theories with observations. Part E: General relativity and the universe. Part F: Spacetime beyond Einstein.

Title  Special theory of relativity: A Mathematical Exposition 
Author(s)  Anadijiban Das 
Publication  New York, SpringerVerlag, 1993. 
Description  xii, 214p. 
Series  (Universitext) 
Abstract Note  Based on courses taught at the University of Dublin, Carnegie Mellon University, and mostly at Simon Fraser University, this book presents the special theory of relativity from a mathematical point of view. It begins with the axioms of the Minkowski vector space and the flat spacetime manifold. Then it discusses the kinematics of special relativity in terms of Lorentz tranformations, and treats the group structure of Lorentz transformations. Extending the discussion to spinors, the author shows how a unimodular mapping of spinor (vector) space can induce a proper, orthochronous Lorentz mapping on the Minkowski vector space. The second part begins with a discussion of relativistic particle mechanics from both the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian points of view. The book then turns to the relativistic (classical) field theory, including a proof of Noether's theorem and discussions of the KleinGordon, electromagnetic, Dirac, and nonabelian gauge fields. The final chapter deals with recent work on classical fields in an eightdimensional covariant phase space.

Title  Primer on scientific programming with python 
Author(s)  Hans Petter Langtangen 
Edition  3rd 
Publication  Berlin, SpringerVerlag, 2012. 
Description  xxxii, 792p. 
Series  (Texts in Computational Science and Engineering) 
Abstract Note  The book serves as a first introduction to computer programming of scientific applications, using the highlevel Python language. The exposition is example and problemoriented, where the applications are taken from mathematics, numerical calculus, statistics, physics, biology, and finance. The book teaches "Matlabstyle" and procedural programming as well as objectoriented programming. High school mathematics is a required background, and it is advantageous to study classical and numerical onevariable calculus in parallel with reading this book. Besides learning how to program computers, the reader will also learn how to solve mathematical problems, arising in various branches of science and engineering, with the aid of numerical methods and programming. By blending programming, mathematics and scientific applications, the book lays a solid foundation for practicing computational science.
