A First Course in String Theory by Barton Zwiebach

By Barton Zwiebach

String thought made comprehensible. Barton Zwiebach is once more devoted to his target of creating string thought available to undergraduates. He provides the most strategies of string concept in a concrete and actual method to increase instinct ahead of formalism, usually via simplified and illustrative examples. entire and thorough in its assurance, this new version now comprises AdS/CFT correspondence and introduces superstrings. it's ideally fitted to introductory classes in string thought for college kids with a heritage in arithmetic and physics. New sections hide strings on orbifolds, cosmic strings, moduli stabilization, and the string idea panorama. Now with virtually three hundred difficulties and routines, with password-protected options for teachers at www.cambridge.org/zwiebach.

Field Theory of Non-Equilibrium Systems

The physics of non-equilibrium many-body platforms is likely one of the so much speedily increasing components of theoretical physics. typically utilized in the research of laser physics and superconducting kinetics, those concepts have extra lately discovered functions within the examine of dynamics of chilly atomic gases, mesoscopic and nano-mechanical structures.

The Quantum World

Quantum physics has, at the one hand, enormously replaced our theoretical description of the actual international and has, nonetheless, revolutionized daily life, through permitting us to construct lasers, atomic clocks utilized in GPS, and semiconductor-based units reminiscent of machine pcs and smartphones. the thing of this booklet is to offer a self-contained advent to either features.

Lectures on the Mathematics of Quantum Mechanics I (Atlantis Studies in Mathematical Physics: Theory and Applications)

The 1st quantity (General idea) differs from so much textbooks because it emphasizes the mathematical constitution and mathematical rigor, whereas being tailored to the instructing the 1st semester of a complicated direction in Quantum Mechanics (the content material of the e-book are the lectures of classes truly introduced.

Introduction to Quantum Theory

When you consider that its emergence within the early 20th century, quantum conception has turn into the basic actual paradigm, and is key to our knowing of the realm. delivering a deeper figuring out of the microscopic international via quantum concept, this supplementary textual content studies a much wider diversity of themes than traditional textbooks.
