Data Analysis for Scientists and Engineers is a modern, graduatelevel text on data analysis techniques for physical science and engineering students as well as working scientists and engineers. Edward Robinson emphasizes the principles behind various techniques so that practitioners can adapt them to their own problems, or develop new techniques when necessary.
Robinson divides the book into three sections. The first section covers basic concepts in probability and includes a chapter on Monte Carlo methods with an extended discussion of Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling. The second section introduces statistics and then develops tools for fitting models to data, comparing and contrasting techniques from both frequentist and Bayesian perspectives. The final section is devoted to methods for analyzing sequences of data, such as correlation functions, periodograms, and image reconstruction. While it goes beyond elementary statistics, the text is selfcontained and accessible to readers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Specialized mathematical topics are included in an appendix.

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.
