Title  Angular Momentum Techniques in Quantum Mechanics

Description  XIV, 242 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  A course in angular momentum techniques is essential for quantitative study of problems in atomic physics, molecular physics, nuclear physics and solid state physics. This book has grown out of such a course given to the students of the M. Sc. and M. Phil. degree courses at the University of Madras. An elementary knowledge of quantum mechanics is an essential prerequisite to undertake this course but no knowledge of group theory is assumed on the part of the readers. Although the subject matter has grouptheoretic origin, special efforts have been made to avoid the gro theoretical language but place emphasis on the algebraic formalism dev oped by Racah (1942a, 1942b, 1943, 1951). How far I am successful in this project is left to the discerning reader to judge. After the publication of the two classic books, one by Rose and the other by Edmonds on this subject in the year 1957, the application of angular momentum techniques to solve physical problems has become so common that it is found desirable to organize a separate course on this subject to the students of physics. It is to cater to the needs of such students and research workers that this book is written. A large number of questions and problems given at the end of each chapter will enable the reader to have a clearer understanding of the subject

Title  Foundations of Modern Physics 
Author(s)  Steven Weinberg 
Publication  Cambridge, Oxford University Press, 2021. 
Description  xiv, 310p. 
Abstract Note  In addition to his groundbreaking research, Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg is known for a series of highly praised texts on various aspects of physics, combining exceptional physical insight with his gift for clear exposition. Describing the foundations of modern physics in their historical context and with some new derivations, Weinberg introduces topics ranging from early applications of atomic theory through thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, transport theory, special relativity, quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, and quantum field theory. This volume provides the basis for advanced undergraduate and graduate physics courses as well as being a handy introduction to aspects of modern physics for working scientists.

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.
