Author(s)Steven Weinberg
PublicationCambridge, Oxford University Press, 2021.
Descriptionxiv, 310p.
Abstract NoteIn addition to his ground-breaking 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.

TitlePhysical world: An Inspirational Tour of Fundamental Physics
Author(s)Nicholas Manton;Nicholas Mee
PublicationOxford University Press 2017.
Abstract NoteThe 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 4-dimensional 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 atomic-scale 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.

TitlePhysics of ice
Author(s)Victor F. Petrenko;Robert W. Whitworth
PublicationOxford University Press 2002.
Abstract NoteIce is one of the most abundant and environmentally important materials on Earth, and its unique and intriguing physical properties present fascinating areas of study. This book takes as its subject the physics of ice: the properties of the material itself and the ways in which these properties are interpreted in terms of water molecules and crystalline structure. Although ice has a simple crystal structure its hydrogen bonding results in unique properties, which continue to be the subject of active research. An understanding of these properties is essential in fields such as glaciology, ice mechanics, ice adhesion, the dating of ice cores in Antarctica and Greenland, meteorology, thunderstorm electricity, and the study of comets or the icy moons of the outer planets in the solar system. In this book the physical principles underlying the properties of ice are carefully developed. Much work on important topics such as the current understanding of the electrical, mechanical, and surface properties of ice, or the occurrence of many different crystalline phases, are developed.

TitlePhysics of solids
Author(s)J. B. Ketterson
PublicationOxford University Press 2016.
Abstract NoteThis text covers the basic physics of the solid state starting at an elementary level and advancing, in stages. In addition to treating the fundamental elastic, electrical, thermal, magnetic, structural, electronic, transport, optical, mechanical, and compositional properties, the text also discusses topics like superfluidity and superconductivity, along with special topics such as strongly correlated systems, high temperature superconductors, the quantum Hall effects, and graphene. Particular emphasis is given to so-called first principles calculations utilizing modern density functional theory, which for many systems now allow accurate calculations of the electronic, magnetic, and thermal properties.

TitleRoad to relativity: The History and Meaning of Einstein's "The Foundation of General Relativity", Featuring the Original Manuscript of Einstein's Masterpiece
Author(s)Hanoch Gutfreund;Jurgen Renn
PublicationPrinceton University Press 2017.
DescriptionPrinceton Scholarship Online - Oxford University Press
Abstract NoteThis richly annotated facsimile edition of “The Foundation of General Relativity” introduces a new generation of readers to Albert Einstein's theory of gravitation. Written in 1915, this remarkable document is a watershed in the history of physics and an enduring testament to the elegance and precision of Einstein's thought. Presented here is a beautiful facsimile of Einstein's original handwritten manuscript, along with its English translation and an insightful page-by-page commentary that places the work in historical and scientific context. The concise introduction traces Einstein's intellectual odyssey from the special to the general theory of relativity, and the chapter "The Charm of a Manuscript" provides a delightful meditation on the varied afterlife of Einstein's text. The book also includes a biographical glossary of the figures discussed in the book, a comprehensive bibliography, suggestions for further reading, and numerous photos and illustrations throughout.

TitleMichelson-Morley experiments: An Enigma for Physics and the History of Science
Author(s)Maurizio Consoli;Alessandro Pluchino
PublicationNew Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2019.
Descriptionxii, 181p.
Abstract NoteIn 1887, Michelson and Morley tried to observe in laboratory the "ether drift" by measuring a small difference in the velocity of two perpendicular light beams. The result of their measurements, however, was much smaller than the classical prediction and interpreted as a "null result". This was crucial to stimulate the first pioneering formulations of relativity and, as such, it represents a fundamental step in the history of science. Since then, many repetitions of that original experiment have been performed with better and better sensitivity and the standard conclusion has been always the same: no genuine ether drift has ever been detected. However, in the authors' new scheme, the small irregular residuals observed in laboratory show surprising correlations with the direct observations of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) with satellites in space. This opens the possibility of finally linking the CMB to a fundamental reference frame for relativity, with substantial implications for the interpretation of non-locality in the quantum theory. The importance of the issue would require new dedicated experimental tests and significant improvements in the data analysis. Otherwise, without such more stringent checks, these crucial experiments will remain forever as an enigma for physics and the history of science. The book illustrates the many facets of this research together with historical accounts on some leading scientists involved in these measurements.

TitleThe beauty of physics : patterns, principles, and perspectives
Author(s)A.R.P. Rau
Description1 online resource (xii, 219 pages) : illustrations (black and white)
Abstract NoteThis title is about ideas and themes in physics. A small set of them apply over broad areas of physics, and in that wide reach lies some of the power, beauty, and attraction of the subject. Many metaphors from ordinary language or other disciplines have been adopted by physicists, albeit with a specific and distinct flavour. The selection of topics reflects the author's own four-decade career in research physics and his resultant perspective on the subject
