Title  Quantum fields: From the Hubble to the Planck Scale 
Author(s)  Michael Kachelriess 
Publication  Oxford University Press 2017. 
Abstract Note  This book introduces quantum field theory, together with its most important applications to cosmology and astroparticle physics, in a coherent framework. The pathintegral approach is employed right from the start, and the use of Green functions and generating functionals is illustrated first in quantum mechanics and then in scalar field theory. Massless spin one and two fields are discussed on an equal footing, and gravity is presented as a gauge theory in close analogy with the Yang–Mills case. Concepts relevant to modern research such as helicity methods, effective theories, decoupling, or the stability of the electroweak vacuum are introduced. Various applications such as topological defects, dark matter, baryogenesis, processes in external gravitational fields, inflation and black holes help students to bridge the gap between undergraduate courses and the research literature.

Title  Signatures of the artist: The Vital Imperfections That Make Our Universe Habitable 
Author(s)  Steven E. Vigdor 
Publication  Oxford University Press 2018. 
Abstract Note  This book provides a nonmathematical survey of the past halfcentury of research in particle physics, nuclear physics, and cosmology bearing on the physical conditions that allow our universe to support the development of structure and the origins of life. These conditions rely on a surprising number of tiny imperfections—deviations from perfect symmetry (i.e., symmetry violations), homogeneity, or predictability—that seem mysteriously finetuned. The emphasis here is on the intricate tapestry of elegant experiments that have revealed and quantified these imperfections, as well as on theoretical efforts to understand how the imperfections arose in the infant universe. Among the topics covered are: the dominance of matter over antimatter (i.e., matter–antimatter asymmetry); the existence and intermixing of three generations of quarks and leptons; the stability of hydrogen and synthesis of other elements essential for life; the longevity and energy budget of the universe; the remaining mysteries surrounding dark matter, dark energy, and the postulated inflationary expansion of space in the infant universe; the fundamental role of randomness in quantum mechanics, in generating the first biomolecules and in biological evolution; the apparent perching of the vacuum state in our universe on the edge between stability and metastability; and philosophical questions, including the possibility of a multiverse, surrounding the interpretation of a universe that exhibits such finetuning. On all of these issues, the book clarifies what we know and how we know it, as distinct from what we speculate and how we might test it.

Title  Cosmology for physicists 
Author(s)  David Lyth 
Publication  Boca Raton, CRC Press, 2017. 
Description  xi, 168p. 
Series  (Series in Astronomy and Astrophysics) 
Abstract Note  Written by an awardwinning cosmologist, this brand new textbook provides advanced undergraduate and graduate students with coverage of the very latest developments in the observational science of cosmology. The book is separated into three parts; part I covers particle physics and general relativity, part II explores an account of the known history of the universe, and part III studies inflation. Full treatment of the origin of structure, scalar fields, the cosmic microwave background and the early universe are provided.
Problems are included in the book with solutions provided in a separate solutions manual. More advanced extension material is offered in the Appendix, ensuring the book is fully accessible to students with a wide variety of background experience.

Title  Knots, braids, and mobius stripe: Particle Physics and the Geometry of Elementarity: An Alternative View 
Author(s)  Jack Avrin 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2015. 
Description  xx, 332p. 
Series  (Series on Knots and Everything) 
Abstract Note  Elementary particles in this book exist as Solitons inandof the fabric of spacetime itself. As such they are characterized by their geometry, that is their topology and configuration which lead directly to their physical attributes and behavior as well as to a simplification and reduction of assumptions and the importation of parameter values. The emphasis of the book is thus on that geometry, the algebraic geometry associated with taxonomical issues and the differential geometry that determines the physics as well as on simplifying the results. In itself, however, the process of assembling and developing what eventually went into the book has been a singularly rewarding journey. Along the way some fascinating insights and connections to known physical attributes and theories emerge, some predictable but others unbidden and even unanticipated. The book is intended to summarize that journey in a way that, readers with a range of backgrounds will find interesting and provocative. Connections to other physical theories and subjects are also discussed. A most gratifying development is the emergence of a unifying principle underlying the epistemological structure of not only the elementary particles but of such diverse fields as Radar, Quantum mechanics, Biology, Cosmology and the Philosophy of science.

Title  Fundamental constants: A Mystery of Physics 
Author(s)  Harald Fritzsch;Gregory Stodolsky (tr.) 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2009. 
Description  xviii,195p. 
Abstract Note  The speed of light, the fine structure constant, and Newton's constant of gravity â these are just three among the many physical constants that define our picture of the world. Where do they come from? Are they constant in time and across space? In this book, physicist and author Harald Fritzsch invites the reader to explore the mystery of the fundamental constants of physics in the company of Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, and a modernday physicist. The conversation that the three scientists are imagined to have provides an entertaining introduction to the constants and covers topics ranging from atomic, nuclear, and particle physics to astrophysics and cosmology.
