Title  Mass and motion in general relativity 
Author(s)  Luc Blanchet (ed.);Alessandro Spallicci (ed.);Bernard Whiting (ed.) 
Publication  New York, Springer, 2011. 
Description  xviii, 624p. 
Series  (Fundamental Theories of Physics) 
Abstract Note  Provides a multifaceted approach to mass and motion that is given by the worldâs leading scientists. Presents a focused and coherent overview of the theoretical and experimental state of the art on the basic foundations and tests of gravity theories
From the infinitesimal scale of particle physics to the cosmic scale of the universe, research is concerned with the nature of mass. While there have been spectacular advances in physics during the past century, mass still remains a mysterious entity at the forefront of current research. Our current perspective on gravitation has arisen over millennia, through the contemplation of falling apples, lift thought experiments and notions of stars spiraling into black holes. In this volume, the worldâs leading scientists offer a multifaceted approach to mass by giving a concise and introductory presentation based on insights from their respective fields of research on gravity. The main theme is mass and its motion within general relativity and other theories of gravity, particularly for compact bodies. Within this framework, all articles are tied together coherently, covering postNewtonian and related methods as well as the selfforce approach to the analysis of motion in curved spacetime, closing with an overview of the historical development and a snapshot on the actual state of the art.
All contributions reflect the fundamental role of mass in physics, from issues related to Newtonâs laws, to the effect of selfforce and radiation reaction within theories of gravitation, to the role of the Higgs boson in modern physics. Highprecision measurements are described in detail, modified theories of gravity reproducing experimental data are investigated as alternatives to dark matter, and the fundamental problem of reconciling any theory of gravity with the physics of quantum fields is addressed. Auxiliary chapters set the framework for theoretical contributions within the broader context of experimental physics.

Contents Note  The book is based upon the lectures of the CNRS School on Mass held in OrlÃ©ans, France, in June 2008.

Title  Group theory for the standard model of particle physics and beyond 
Author(s)  Ken J. Barnes 
Publication  Boca Raton, CRC Press, 2010. 
Description  xiii, 241p. 
Series  (Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation) 
Abstract Note  Based on the authorâs wellestablished courses, Group Theory for the Standard Model of Particle Physics and Beyond explores the use of symmetries through descriptions of the techniques of Lie groups and Lie algebras. The text develops the models, theoretical framework, and mathematical tools to understand these symmetries.
After linking symmetries with conservation laws, the book works through the mathematics of angular momentum and extends operators and functions of classical mechanics to quantum mechanics. It then covers the mathematical framework for special relativity and the internal symmetries of the standard model of elementary particle physics. In the chapter on Noetherâs theorem, the author explains how Lagrangian formalism provides a natural framework for the quantum mechanical interpretation of symmetry principles. He then examines electromagnetic, weak, and strong interactions; spontaneous symmetry breaking; the elusive Higgs boson; and supersymmetry. He also introduces new techniques based on extending spaceâtime into dimensions described by anticommuting coordinates.
Designed for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in physics, this text provides succinct yet complete coverage of the group theory of the symmetries of the standard model of elementary particle physics. It will help students understand current knowledge about the standard model as well as the physics that potentially lies beyond the standard model.
