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  Particles and quantum fields 
Author(s)  Hagen Kleinert 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2016. 
Description  xxxv, 1591p. 
Abstract Note  This is an introductory book on elementary particles and their interactions. It starts out with manybody Schrödinger theory and second quantization and leads, via its generalization, to relativistic fields of various spins and to gravity. The text begins with the best known quantum field theory so far, the quantum electrodynamics of photon and electrons (QED). It continues by developing the theory of strong interactions between the elementary constituents of matter (quarks). This is possible due to the property called asymptotic freedom. On the way one has to tackle the problem of removing various infinities by renormalization. The divergent sums of infinitely many diagrams are performed with the renormalization group or by variational perturbation theory (VPT). The latter is an outcome of the FeynmanKleinert variational approach to path integrals discussed in two earlier books of the author, one representing a comprehensive treatise on path integrals, the other dealing with critial phenomena. Unlike ordinary perturbation theory, VPT produces uniformly convergent series which are valid from weak to strong couplings, where they describe critical phenomena.

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.
