Title  Instabilities in Field Theory : A Primer with Applications in Modified Gravity 
Author(s)  Delhom, Adri??;Jim??nez Cano, Alejandro;Maldonado Torralba, Francisco Jos?? 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XI, 71 p. 3 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the most common types of instabilities arising in classical field theories, namely tachyonic, Laplacian, ghostlike or strong coupling instabilities, also commenting on their quantum implications. The authors provide a detailed account on the Ostrogradski theorem and its implications for higherorder timederivative field theories. After presenting the general concepts and formalism, they dive into its applications to particular field theories, using mainly modified gravity theories as examples. The book is intended for advanced undergraduate/graduate students, but can also be useful for researchers, for having a unified exposition of general results on instabilities in field theory and examples of their applications

Title  Relativistic and NonRelativistic Quantum Mechanics : Both at Once 
Author(s)  Grave de Peralta, Luis;Fern??ndez Lozada, Maricela;Farooq, Hira;Eichman, Gage;Singh, Abhishek;Prime, Gabrielle 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XI, 170 p. 52 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Currently, relativistic quantum mechanics is considered an advanced topic only accessible to students who have already received considerable training in nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. However, the authors believe that they have found an excellent pedagogic approach for simultaneously introducing both topics. This book is considered an Introductory Quantum Mechanics textbook that presents relativistic quantum mechanics to interested learners with no previous knowledge of it. The authors avoid utilization of the wellknown Lorentz invariant equations. Additionally, they only refer to the KleinGordon and Dirac equations to justify the use of the PovedaPoirierGrave de Peralta (PPGP) equations, upon which this book is solely based (while sporadically referring to wellknown results obtained using the KleinGordon and Dirac equations to avoid unnecessary complications in an introductory book). There also exist two complementary Schr??dingerlike and Paulilike PPGP equations, thesolutions of which are identical to the respective solutions of the KleinGordon and Dirac equations associated with negative kinetic energies. These equations??? relation to the existence of antiparticles is discussed. The intended readership is undergraduate physics, chemistry, and engineering students with no previous knowledge of quantum mechanics, as well as graduate students and professionals interested in the subject

Title  Facts of Matter and Light : Ten Physics Experiments that Shaped Our Understanding of Nature 
Author(s)  Maes, Christian 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XIII, 175 p. 41 illus., 31 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The main aim of this book is to shine a spotlight on key experiments and their crucial importance for advancing our understanding of physics. Physics is an empirical science, and experiments have always been a driving force in the development of our understanding of nature. Facts matter. In that sense, the book attempts to be complementary to the many popularizations of theoretical physics, and to counterbalance the frequent emphasis there on more speculative ideas. Experimental physics is also an essential pillar in physics teaching, as well as helping broader audiences to better understand important concepts, particularly in challenging fields such as relativity or quantum physics, where our common sense intuition often fails. Readers are taken on an historical journey, starting with ???Free Fall??? and culminating in ???Spooky Action at a Distance???. En route they will encounter many important branches of physics, whose main ideas and theoretical description will be given a more empirical meaning. At the end, the reader is invited to reflect on what could be exciting and important directions for fundamental physics. All readers with an undergraduate degree in physical sciences or engineering will enjoy and learn much from this stimulating and original text

Title  Mathematical Aspects of Paradoxes in Cosmology : Can Mathematics Explain the Contemporary Cosmological Crisis? 
Author(s)  K??????ek, Michal;Somer, Lawrence 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XVI, 264 p. 84 illus., 70 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a mathematical and numerical analysis of many problems which lead to paradoxes in contemporary cosmology, in particular, the existence of dark matter and dark energy. It is shown that these hypothetical quantities arise from excessive extrapolations of simple mathematical models to the whole physical universe. Written in a completely different style to most books on General Relativity and cosmology, the important results take the form of mathematical theorems with precise assumptions and statements. All theorems are followed by a corresponding proof, or an exact reference to the proof. Some nonstandard topics are also covered, including violation of the causality principle in Newtonian mechanics, a critical mathematical and numerical analysis of Mercury's perihelion shift, inapplicability of Einstein's equations to the classical twobody problem due to computational complexity, nonuniqueness of the notion of universe, the topology of the universe, variousdescriptions of a hypersphere, regular tessellations of hyperbolic spaces, local Hubble expansion of the universe, neglected gravitational redshift in the detection of gravitational waves, and the possible distribution of mass inside a black hole. The book also dispels some myths appearing in the theory of relativity and in contemporary cosmology. For example, although the hidden assumption that Einstein's equations provide a good description of the evolution of the whole universe is considered to be obvious, it is just a null hypothesis which has not been verified by any experiment, and has only been postulated by excessive extrapolations of many orders of magnitude

Title  The Physics of Planet Earth and Its Natural Wonders 
Author(s)  Livanov, Dmitry 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  X, 297 p. 250 illus., 244 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  From earthquakes to the northern lights and tsunamis to glacier movement, the author explains thousands of phenomena in the world around us. All of this is done using language that is simple and understandable, and at the same time this book does not try to deceive the reader, as materials of this nature often do, but uses exact physical formulas where they are needed. This book serves as an invaluable reference for physics teachers and should inspire high school students to study physics. Many of them will very likely be able to understand that riveting events and phenomena lie behind those very same formulas that just yesterday seemed so boring. This is an excellent and unique way of easily submerging oneself into the world of science and a nonstop intellectual challenge that lures the reader in much more than any game of chess.

Title  Gravitational Waves from a Quantum Field Theory Perspective 
Author(s)  Mohanty, Subhendra 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XV, 266 p. 34 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book treats the subject of gravitational waves (GWs) production in binary stars or blackholes and in the early universe, using tools of quantum field theory which are familiar to graduate students and researchers in particle physics. A special focus is given to the generation of templates of gravitational wave signals from Feynman diagram calculations of transition amplitudes, which interests active researchers in GWs. The book presents field theory concepts, like supersymmetry realized in spinning binaries and softgraviton theorems, that can have practical applications in novel GW signals, like the memory effect. The book also aims at specialists in both GWs and particle physics addressing cosmological models of phase transition and inflation that can be tested in observations at terrestrial and space based interferometers, pulsar timing arrays, and the cosmic microwave anisotropy observations

Title  Special Relativity for the Enthusiast 
Author(s)  Strohm, Thomas 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XVI, 344 p. 149 illus., 137 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook introduces special relativity with a focus on a profound understanding of the physics behind the theory. The main part of the book is targeted to undergraduates, for physics education, for undergraduate students in natural sciences in general, and even to interested laypersons. To serve these target groups, the book uses only basic mathematics and, in contrast to many other introductions to special relativity, the book is based on a pedagogical approach that relies on geometry and spacetime diagrams to make the surprising predictions of the theory particularly clear. Special relativity is a geometric theory, and spacetime diagrams are an efficient and easily understandable way to comprehend its implications. The textbook, however, is also suitable for advanced students and enthusiasts that already learned the basics of the special theory of relativity and want to know more. Special digression sections provide plenty of interesting material. Carefully selected problems with solutions and indepth explanations for all key experiments help deepen the knowledge
