TitleFoundations of Modern Physics
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.

TitleLost in maths: How Beauty Leads Physics Astray
Author(s)Sabine Hossenfelder
PublicationNew York, Basic Books, 2018.
Descriptionxi, 291p.
Abstract NoteWhether pondering black holes or predicting discoveries at CERN, physicists believe the best theories are beautiful, natural, and elegant, and this standard separates popular theories from disposable ones. This is why, Sabine Hossenfelder argues, we have not seen a major breakthrough in the foundations of physics for more than four decades. The belief in beauty has become so dogmatic that it now conflicts with scientific objectivity: observation has been unable to confirm mindboggling theories, like supersymmetry or grand unification, invented by physicists based on aesthetic criteria. Worse, these "too good to not be true" theories are actually untestable and they have left the field in a cul-de-sac. To escape, physicists must rethink their methods. Only by embracing reality as it is can science discover the truth.

TitleModern classical physics: Optics, Fluids, Plasmas, Elasticity, Relativity, and Statistical Physics
Author(s)Kip S. Thorne ;Roger D. Blandford
PublicationPrinceton , Princeton University Press, 2017.
Descriptionxl, 1511p.
Abstract NoteThis first-year, graduate-level text and reference book covers the fundamental concepts and twenty-first-century applications of six major areas of classical physics that every masters- or PhD-level physicist should be exposed to, but often isn't: statistical physics, optics (waves of all sorts), elastodynamics, fluid mechanics, plasma physics, and special and general relativity and cosmology. this book is designed to broaden the training of physicists. Its six main topical sections are also designed so they can be used in separate courses, and the book provides an invaluable reference for researchers.

TitlePhysics on your feet: Berkely Graduate Exam Questions or Ninety Minutes of Shame but a Ph. D. for the Rest of Your Life!
Author(s)Dmitry Budker;Alexander O. Sushkov;Vasiliki Demas (ill)
PublicationOxford, Oxford University Press, 2015.
Descriptionxiii, 203p.
Abstract NotePhysics on Your Feet gives a collection of physics problems covering the broad range of topics in classical and modern physics that were, or could have been, asked at oral PhD exams at Berkeley. The questions are easy to formulate, but some of them can only be answered using an out-of-the-box approach. Detailed solutions are provided, from which the reader is guaranteed to learn a lot about the physicists' way of thinking. The book is also packed full of cartoons and dry humour to help take the edge off the stress and anxiety surrounding exams. This is a helpful guide to students preparing for their exams, as well as to University lecturers looking for good instructive problems. No exams are necessary to enjoy the book!

TitlePrinciples of physics: From Quantum Field Theory to Classical Mechanics
Author(s)Ni Jun
PublicationNew Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2014.
Descriptionxvi, 426p.
Series(Tsinghua Report and Review in Physics)
Abstract NoteThis book starts from a set of common basic principles to establish the formalisms in all areas of fundamental physics, including quantum field theory, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, general relativity, electromagnetic field, and classical mechanics. Instead of the traditional pedagogic way, the author arranges the subjects and formalisms in a logical-sequential way, i.e. all the formulas are derived from the formulas before them. The formalisms are also kept self-contained. Most of the required mathematical tools are also given in the appendices. Although this book covers all the disciplines of fundamental physics, the book is concise and can be treated as an integrated entity. This is consistent with the aphorism that simplicity is beauty, unification is beauty, and thus physics is beauty. The book may be used as an advanced textbook by graduate students. It is also suitable for physicists who wish to have an overview of fundamental physics.

TitleExtreme physics: Properties and Behavior of Matter at Extreme Conditions
Author(s)Jeff Colvin;Jon Larsen
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2014.
Descriptionxii, 405p.
Abstract NoteMost matter in the Universe, from the deep interior of planets to the core of stars, is at high temperature or high pressure compared to the matter of our ordinary experience. This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the basic physical theory on matter at such extreme conditions and the mathematical modeling techniques involved in numerical simulations of its properties and behavior. Focusing on computational modeling, the book discusses topics such as the basic properties of dense plasmas; ionization physics; the physical mechanisms by which laser light is absorbed in matter; radiation transport in matter; the basics of hydrodynamics and shock-wave formation and propagation; and numerical simulation of radiation-hydrodynamics phenomenology. End-of-chapter exercises allow the reader to test their understanding of the material and introduce additional physics, making this an invaluable resource for researchers and graduate students in this broad and interdisciplinary area of physics.
