Title  Welcome to the universe: The Problem Book 
Author(s)  Neil DeGrasse Tyson;Michael A. Strauss;J. Richard Gott 
Publication  Princeton, Princeton University Press, 2017. 
Description  xxv, 235p. 
Abstract Note  Welcome to the Universe is a personal guided tour of the cosmos by three of today's leading astrophysicists. Inspired by the enormously popular introductory astronomy course that Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michael A. Strauss, and J. Richard Gott taught together at Princeton, this book covers it allfrom planets, stars, and galaxies to black holes, wormholes, and time travel. Describing the latest discoveries in astrophysics, the informative and entertaining narrative propels you from our home solar system to the outermost frontiers of space. How do stars live and die? Why did Pluto lose its planetary status? What are the prospects of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe? How did the universe begin? Why is it expanding and why is its expansion accelerating? Is our universe alone or part of an infinite multiverse? Answering these and many other questions, the authors open your eyes to the wonders of the cosmos, sharing their knowledge of how the universe works. Breathtaking in scope and stunningly illustrated throughout, Welcome to the Universe is for those who hunger for insights into our evolving universe that only worldclass astrophysicists can provide.

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  Einstein Gravity in a Nutshell 
Author(s)  A. Zee 
Publication  Princeton, Princeton University Press, 2013. 
Description  xxii, 866p. 
Abstract Note  This unique textbook provides an accessible introduction to Einstein's general theory of relativity, a subject of breathtaking beauty and supreme importance in physics. With his trademark blend of wit and incisiveness, A. Zee guides readers from the fundamentals of Newtonian mechanics to the most exciting frontiers of research today, including de Sitter and antide Sitter spacetimes, KaluzaKlein theory, and brane worlds. Unlike other books on Einstein gravity, this book emphasizes the action principle and group theory as guides in constructing physical theories. Zee treats various topics in a spiral style that is easy on beginners, and includes anecdotes from the history of physics that will appeal to students and experts alike. He takes a friendly approach to the required mathematics, yet does not shy away from more advanced mathematical topics such as differential forms. The extensive discussion of black holes includes rotating and extremal black holes and Hawking radiation. The ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate students, Einstein Gravity in a Nutshell also provides an essential resource for professional physicists and is accessible to anyone familiar with classical mechanics and electromagnetism. It features numerous exercises as well as detailed appendices covering a multitude of topics not readily found elsewhere.

Title  Leonhard Euler: Mathematical Genius in the Enlightenment 
Author(s)  Ronald S. Calinger 
Publication  Princeton, Princeton University Press, 2016. 
Description  xvii, 669 
Abstract Note  This is the first fullscale biography of Leonhard Euler (170783). one of the greatest mathematicians and theoretical physicists of all time. In this comprehensive and authoritative account, Ronald Calinger connects the story of Euler's eventful life to the astonishing achievements that Drawing chiefly on Euler's massive published works and correspondence.
which fill more than eighty volumes so far. place him in the company of Archimedes, Newton, and Gauss. this biography sets Euler's work in its multilayered contextpersonal, intellectual, institutional, political, cultural, religious, and social, It is a story of nearly incessant accomplishment, from Euler's fundamental contributions to almost every area of pure and applied mathematicsespecially calculus, number theory,
notation, optics, and celestial, rational, and fluid mechanicsto his advancements in shipbuilding, telescopes, ballistics, cartography, chronology, and music theory.

Title  Essential radio astronomy 
Author(s)  James J. Condon ;Scott M. Ransom 
Publication  Princeton, Princeton University Press, 2016. 
Description  x, 363p. 
Series  (Princeton Series in Modern Observational Astronomy) 
Abstract Note  Essential Radio Astronomy is the only textbook on the subject specifically designed for a onesemester introductory course for advanced undergraduates or graduate students in astronomy and astrophysics.
It starts from first principles in order to fill gaps in students' backgrounds, make teaching easier for professors who are not expert radio astronomers, and provide a useful reference to the essential equations used by practitioners.
This unique textbook reflects the fact that students of multiwavelength astronomy typically can afford to spend only one semester studying the observational techniques particular to each wavelength band.
Essential Radio Astronomy presents only the most crucial conceptssuccinctly and accessibly. It covers the general principles behind radio telescopes, receivers, and digital backends without getting bogged down in engineering details.
Emphasizing the physical processes in radio sources, the book's approach is shaped by the view that radio astrophysics owes more to thermodynamics than electromagnetism.
Proven in the classroom and generously illustrated throughout, Essential Radio Astronomy is an invaluable resource for students and researchers alike.

Title  From dust to life: The Origin and Evolution of Our Solar System 
Author(s)  Jonh Chambers;Jacqueline Mitton 
Publication  Princeton, Princeton University Press, 2014. 
Description  xvi, 299p. 
Abstract Note  The birth and evolution of our solar system is a tantalizing mystery that may one day provide answers to the question of human origins. This book tells the remarkable story of how the celestial objects that make up the solar system arose from common beginnings billions of years ago, and how scientists and philosophers have sought to unravel this mystery down through the centuries, piecing together the clues that enabled them to deduce the solar system's layout, its age, and the most likely way it formed.
Drawing on the history of astronomy and the latest findings in astrophysics and the planetary sciences, John Chambers and Jacqueline Mitton offer the most uptodate and authoritative treatment of the subject available. They examine how the evolving universe set the stage for the appearance of our Sun, and how the nebulous cloud of gas and dust that accompanied the young Sun eventually became the planets, comets, moons, and asteroids that exist today. They explore how each of the planets acquired its unique characteristics, why some are rocky and others gaseous, and why one planet in particularour Earthprovided an almost perfect haven for the emergence of life.
From Dust to Life is a mustread for anyone who desires to know more about how the solar system came to be. This enticing book takes readers to the very frontiers of modern research, engaging with the latest controversies and debates. It reveals how ongoing discoveries of fardistant extrasolar planets and planetary systems are transforming our understanding of our own solar system's astonishing history and its possible fate.
