Title  General theory of relativity: A Mathematical Approach 
Author(s)  Farook Rahaman 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2021. 
Description  404pp 
Contents Note  The book aims to expound the general theory of relativity with a mathematical point of view. Catering to the needs of postgraduate students and researchers in the field of astrophysics and mathematical physics, it offers the readers a comprehensive understanding of the advanced topics of the subject matter. It specifically discusses the mathematical foundation of tensor calculus, gives a background of geodesics, Einstein's field equations, linearised gravity, spacetime of spherically symmetric distribution of matter and black holes, and particle and photon orbits in spacetime. Apart from the formulation of general relativity, Lie derivatives and its applications, and causality of spacetime are also discussed in detail. Certain preliminary concepts of extrinsic curvature, Lagrangian formalism of general theory of relativity and 3 + 1 decomposition of spacetime are covered and are provided in the book as appendices.

Title  Thermodynamics: Concepts and Applications 
Author(s)  Stephen R. Turns;Laura L. Pauley 
Edition  2nd. ed. 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2020. 
Description  xxxiv, 871p. 
Abstract Note  Fully revised to match the more traditional sequence of course materials, this fullcolor second edition presents the basic principles and methods of thermodynamics using a clear and engaging style and a wealth of endofchapter problems. It includes five new chapters on topics such as mixtures, psychometry, chemical equilibrium, and combustion, and discussion of the Second Law of Thermodynamics has been expanded and divided into two chapters, allowing instructors to introduce the topic using either the cycle analysis in Chapter 6 or the definition of entropy in Chapter 7.

Title  Introduction to turbulent transport of particles, temperature and magnetic fields 
Author(s)  Igor Rogachevskii 
Publication  Cambridge , Cambridge University Press, 2021. 
Description  261p. 
Abstract Note  Turbulence and the associated turbulent transport of scalar and vector fields is a classical physics problem that has dazzled scientists for over a century, yet many fundamental questions remain. Igor Rogachevskii, in this concise book, systematically applies various analytical methods to the turbulent transfer of temperature, particles and magnetic field. Introducing key concepts in turbulent transport including essential physics principles and statistical tools, this interdisciplinary book is suitable for a range of readers such as theoretical physicists, astrophysicists, geophysicists, plasma physicists, and researchers in fluid mechanics and related topics in engineering. With an overview to various analytical methods such as meanfield approach, dimensional analysis, multiscale approach, quasilinear approach, spectral tau approach, pathintegral approach and analysis based on budget equations, it is also an accessible reference tool for advanced graduates, PhD students and researchers.

Title  Astrophysical magnetic fields: From Galaxies to the Early Universe 
Author(s)  Anvar Shukurov;Kandaswamy Subramanian 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2021. 
Description  xiii, 625p. 
Series  (Cambridge Astrophysics Series) 
Abstract Note  Magnetic fields permeate space and affect many major astrophysical phenomena, but they are often ignored due to their perceived complexity. This selfcontained introduction to astrophysical magnetic fields provides both a comprehensive review of the current state of the subject and a critical discussion of the latest research. It presents our knowledge of magnetic fields from the Early Universe, their evolution in cosmic time through to their roles in presentday galaxies, galaxy clusters and the wider intergalactic medium, with attention given to both theory and observations. This volume also contains an extensive introduction into magnetohydrodynamics, numerous worked examples, observational and mathematical techniques and interpretations of the observations. Its review of our current knowledge, with an emphasis on results that are likely to form the basis for future progress, benefits a broad audience of advanced students and active researchers, including those from fields such as cosmology and general relativity.

Title  Atmospheric evolution on inhabited and lifeless worlds 
Author(s)  David C. Catling;James F. Kasting 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2017. 
Description  xiv, 579p. 
Abstract Note  As the search for Earthlike exoplanets gathers pace, in order to understand them, we need comprehensive theories for how planetary atmospheres form and evolve. Written by two wellknown planetary scientists, this text explains the physical and chemical principles of atmospheric evolution and planetary atmospheres, in the context of how atmospheric composition and climate determine a planet's habitability. The authors survey our current understanding of the atmospheric evolution and climate on Earth, on other rocky planets within our Solar System, and on planets far beyond. Incorporating a rigorous mathematical treatment, they cover the concepts and equations governing a range of topics, including atmospheric chemistry, thermodynamics, radiative transfer, and atmospheric dynamics, and provide an integrated view of planetary atmospheres and their evolution. This interdisciplinary text is an invaluable onestop resource for graduatelevel students and researchers working across the fields of atmospheric science, geochemistry, planetary science, astrobiology, and astronomy.
