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

TitleCourse in theoretical physics
Author(s)P. J. Shepherd
PublicationChichester, John Wiley and Sons, 2013.
Descriptionxvi, 465p.
Abstract NoteThis book is a comprehensive account of five extended modules covering the key branches of twentieth-century theoretical physics, taught by the author over a period of three decades to students on bachelor and master university degree courses in both physics and theoretical physics. The modules cover nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, thermal and statistical physics, many-body theory, classical field theory (including special relativity and electromagnetism), and, finally, relativistic quantum mechanics and gauge theories of quark and lepton interactions, all presented in a single, self-contained volume.

TitleUnder the spell of Landau: When Theortical Physics was Shaping Destinies
Author(s)Mikhail Shifman (ed.)
PublicationNew Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2013.
Descriptionxxii, 537p.
Abstract NoteThis invaluable collection of memoirs and reviews on scientific activities of the most prominent theoretical physicists belonging to the Landau School — Landau, Migdal, Zeldovich, Smorodinsky, Ter-Martirosyan, Kirzhnits, Gribov, Larkin and Anselm — are being published in English for the first time. The main goal is to acquaint readers with the life and work of outstanding Soviet physicists who, to a large extent, shaped theoretical physics in the 1950s–70s. Many intriguing details have remained unknown beyond the “Iron Curtain” which was dismantled only with the fall of the USSR.

TitleEinstein and Oppenheimer: The meaning of genius
Author(s)Silvan S. Schweber
PublicationCambridge, Harvard University Press, 2008.
Descriptionxiv, 412p.
Abstract NoteAlbert Einstein and J. Robert Oppenheimer, two iconic scientists of the twentieth century, belonged to different generations, with the boundary marked by the advent of quantum mechanics. By exploring how these men differed—in their worldview, in their work, and in their day—this book provides powerful insights into the lives of two critical figures and into the scientific culture of their times. In Einstein’s and Oppenheimer’s philosophical and ethical positions, their views of nuclear weapons, their ethnic and cultural commitments, their opinions on the unification of physics, even the role of Buddhist detachment in their thinking, the book traces the broader issues that have shaped science and the world.
