Title  The gravitational millionbody problem 
Author(s)  Douglas Heggie, Piet Hut 
Description  1 online resource (xiv, 357 pages) : digital, PDF file(s) 
Abstract Note  The globular star clusters of the Milky Way contain hundreds of thousands of stars held together by gravitational interactions, and date from the time when the Milky Way was forming. This 2003 text describes the theory astronomers need for studying globular star clusters. The gravitational millionbody problem is an idealised model for understanding the dynamics of a cluster with a million stars. After introducing the millionbody problem from various viewpoints, the book systematically develops the tools needed for studying the millionbody problems in nature, and introduces the most important theoretical models. Including a comprehensive treatment of fewbody interactions, and developing an intuitive but quantitative understanding of the threebody problem, the book introduces numerical methods, relevant software, and current problems. Suitable for graduate students and researchers in astrophysics and astronomy, this text also has important applications in the fields of theoretical physics, computational science and mathematics

Title  Exploring the invisible universe: From Black Holes to Superstrings 
Author(s)  Belal E. Baaquie;Frederick H. Willeboordse 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2015. 
Description  xvi, 471p. 
Abstract Note  Book covers the gamut of topics in advanced modern physics and provides extensive and well substantiated answers to these questions and many more. Discussed in a nontechnical, yet also nontrivial manner, are topics dominated by invisible things  such as Black Holes and Superstrings as well as Fields, Gravitation, the Standard Model, Cosmology, Relativity, the Origin of Elements, Stars and Planetary Evolution, and more. Just giving the answer, as so many books do, is really not telling anything at all. To truly answer the "why" questions of nature, one needs to follow the chain of reasoning that scientists have used to come to the conclusions they have. This book does not shy away from difficulttoexplain topics by reducing them to oneline answers and power phrases suitable for a popular talk show. The explanations are rigorous and straight to the point. This book is rarely mathematical without being afraid, however, to use elementary mathematics when called for. In order to achieve this, a large number of detailed figures, specially developed for this book and found nowhere else, convey insights that otherwise might either be inaccessible or need lengthy and difficulttofollow explanations.

Title  General relativity workbook 
Author(s)  Thomas A. Moore 
Publication  Mill valley, University Science Books, 2013. 
Description  xx, 476p. 
Abstract Note  A General Relativity Workbook is a textbook intended to support a onesemester upper division undergraduate course on general relativity. Through its unique workbookbased design, it enables students to develop a solid mastery of both the physics and the supporting tensor calculus by pushing (and guiding) them to work through the implications. Each chapter, which is designed to correspond to one class session, involves a short overview of the concepts without obscuring derivations or details, followed by a series of boxes that guide students through the process of working things out for themselves. This activelearning approach enables students to develop a more secure mastery of the material than more traditional approaches. More than 350 homework problems support further learning. This book more strongly emphasizes the physics than many of its competitors, and while it provides students a full grounding in the supporting mathematics (unlike certain other competitors), it introduces the mathematics gradually and in a completely physical context.

Title  Nonequilibrium quantum field theory 
Author(s)  Esteban A. Calzetta;BeiLok B. Hu 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2009. 
Description  xv, 353p. 
Abstract Note  Bringing together the key ideas from nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and powerful methodology from quantum field theory, this book captures the essence of nonequilibrium quantum field theory. Beginning with the foundational aspects of the theory, the book presents important concepts and useful techniques, discusses issues of basic interest, and shows how thermal field, linear response, kinetic theories and hydrodynamics emerge. It also illustrates how these concepts and methodology are applied to current research topics including nonequilibrium phase transitions, thermalization in relativistic heavy ion collisions, the nonequilibrium dynamics of BoseEinstein condensation, and the generation of structures from quantum fluctuations in the early Universe. Divided into five parts, with each part addressing a particular stage in the conceptual and technical development of the subject, this selfcontained book is a valuable reference for graduate students and researchers in particle physics, gravitation, cosmology, atomicoptical and condensed matter physics.
