Title  Quantum fields: From the Hubble to the Planck Scale 
Author(s)  Michael Kachelriess 
Publication  Oxford University Press 2017. 
Abstract Note  This book introduces quantum field theory, together with its most important applications to cosmology and astroparticle physics, in a coherent framework. The pathintegral approach is employed right from the start, and the use of Green functions and generating functionals is illustrated first in quantum mechanics and then in scalar field theory. Massless spin one and two fields are discussed on an equal footing, and gravity is presented as a gauge theory in close analogy with the Yang–Mills case. Concepts relevant to modern research such as helicity methods, effective theories, decoupling, or the stability of the electroweak vacuum are introduced. Various applications such as topological defects, dark matter, baryogenesis, processes in external gravitational fields, inflation and black holes help students to bridge the gap between undergraduate courses and the research literature.

Title  Relativity in modern physics 
Author(s)  Nathalie Deruelle;JeanPhilippe Uzan 
Publication  Oxford University Press 2018. 
Abstract Note  Newton’s ideas about how to represent space and time, his laws of dynamics, and his theory of gravitation established the conceptual foundation from which modern physics developed. This book offers a modern view of Newtonian theory, emphasizing those aspects needed for understanding quantum and relativistic contemporary physics. In 1905, Albert Einstein proposed a novel representation of space and time, special relativity. The text also presents relativistic dynamics in inertial and accelerated frames, as well as a detailed overview of Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetism, thus providing the background necessary for studying particle and accelerator physics, astrophysics, and Einstein’s theory of general relativity. In 1915, Einstein proposed a new theory of gravitation, general relativity. Finally, the text develops the geometrical framework in which Einstein’s equations are formulated and presents several key applications: black holes, gravitational radiation, and cosmology.

Title  Introduction to cosmology 
Author(s)  Barbara Ryden 
Edition  2nd ed. 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2016. 
Description  xii,264p. 
Abstract Note  his second edition of Introduction to Cosmology is an exciting update of an awardwinning textbook. It is aimed primarily at advanced undergraduate students in physics and astronomy, but is also useful as a supplementary text at higher levels. It explains modern cosmological concepts, such as dark energy, in the context of the Big Bang theory. Its clear, lucid writing style, with a wealth of useful everyday analogies, makes it exceptionally engaging. Emphasis is placed on the links between theoretical concepts of cosmology and the observable properties of the universe, building deeper physical insights in the reader. The second edition includes recent observational results, fuller descriptions of special and general relativity, expanded discussions of dark energy, and a new chapter on baryonic matter that makes up stars and galaxies. It is an ideal textbook for the era of precision cosmology in the accelerating universe.

Title  Modern classical physics: Optics, Fluids, Plasmas, Elasticity, Relativity, and Statistical Physics 
Author(s)  Kip S. Thorne ;Roger D. Blandford 
Publication  Princeton , Princeton University Press, 2017. 
Description  xl, 1511p. 
Abstract Note  This firstyear, graduatelevel text and reference book covers the fundamental concepts and twentyfirstcentury applications of six major areas of classical physics that every masters or PhDlevel 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.

Title  Cosmology for physicists 
Author(s)  David Lyth 
Publication  Boca Raton, CRC Press, 2017. 
Description  xi, 168p. 
Series  (Series in Astronomy and Astrophysics) 
Abstract Note  Written by an awardwinning cosmologist, this brand new textbook provides advanced undergraduate and graduate students with coverage of the very latest developments in the observational science of cosmology. The book is separated into three parts; part I covers particle physics and general relativity, part II explores an account of the known history of the universe, and part III studies inflation. Full treatment of the origin of structure, scalar fields, the cosmic microwave background and the early universe are provided.
Problems are included in the book with solutions provided in a separate solutions manual. More advanced extension material is offered in the Appendix, ensuring the book is fully accessible to students with a wide variety of background experience.

Title  Introduction to general relativity, black holes and cosmology 
Author(s)  Yvonne ChoquetBruhat 
Publication  Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2015. 
Description  xx, 279p. 
Abstract Note  General Relativity is a beautiful geometric theory, simple in its mathematical formulation but leading to numerous consequences with striking physical interpretations: gravitational waves, black holes, cosmological models, and so on.
This introductory textbook is written for mathematics students interested in physics and physics students interested in exact mathematical formulations (or for anyone with a scientific mind who is curious to know more of the world we live in), recent remarkable experimental and observational results which confirm the theory are clearly described and no specialised physics knowledge is required. The mathematical level of Part A is aimed at undergraduate students and could be the basis for a course on General Relativity. Part B is more advanced, but still does not require sophisticated mathematics.
