4 Baggott, Jim & Peter Atkins Beyond Measure Modern Physics, Philosophy, and the Meaning of Quantum Theory
New York Oxford University Press, USA 2004 0198529279 / 9780198529279 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
As new, text unmarked, glossy pictorial paper covered boards ; 9.61 X 6.69 X 1.10 inches; 400 pages; " The meaning of Quantum Theory introduces science students to the theory's fundamental conceptual and philosophical problems, and the basis of its non-understandability. It does this with the barest minimum of jargon and very little mathematics in the main text. Readers wishing to delve more deeply into the theory's mathematical subtleties can do so in an extended series of appendices. The book brings the reader up to date with the results of new experimental tests of quantum weirdness and reviews the latest thinking on alternative interpretations, the frontiers of quantum cosmology, quantum gravity and potential application of this weirdness in computing, cryptography and teleportation."

DJ shows very light shelf wear.; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. Text unmarked.; 9.20 X 6.30 X 0.80 inches; 190 pages; " Balibar examines twelve problems spanning the frontiers of physics, and he devotes a chapter to each issue. He looks at chaos theory, cosmology, fluid mechanics, and climatology. He explains how we discovered the age of the Earth, how we know the Universe is expanding ever more rapidly, and why the spiral patterns of pinecones and sunflowers are related to the Golden Ratio in mathematics. He scrutinizes how the collective behavior of atoms leads to such amazing results as lasers, superconductors, or superfluids. As Balibar invites us to appreciate the physics hidden within the sights and sounds of the natural world, he also recounts the experiences of his childhood and career that were pivotal to his lifelong passion for science.Written for general readers, The Atom and the Apple explores fascinating aspects of our world, and demonstrates why the pursuit of scientific knowledge is well worth everyone's time, regardless of scientific background."

Columbus, OH Battelle Press 2000 1574770829 / 9781574770827 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Glossy, paper covered, illustrated boards show slight wear.; A bright, solid book.; B&W Illustrations; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 271 pages; "The authors, all of whom are Ukrainian and Russian scientists involved with Chornobyl nuclear power plant since the April 1986 accident, present a comprehensive review of the accident. In addition, they present a risk assessment of the remains of the destroyed reactor and its surrounding shelter, Chornobyl radioactive waste storage and disposal sites, and environmental contamination in the region. The authors explore such questions as the risks posed by a collapse of the shelter, radionuclide migration from storage and disposal facilities in the exclusion zone, and transfer from soil to vegetation and its potential regional impact. The answers to these questions provide a scientific basis for the development of countermeasures against the Chornobyl accident in particular and the mitigation of environmental radioactive contamination in general. They also provide an important basis for understanding the human health and ecological risks posed by the accident."

London Imperial College Press 2013 1848167261 / 9781848167261 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Slight wear to pictorial boards, light spotting on page fore edges. ; Illustrated boards are clean and crisp, text unmarked. ; Classification of Gauge Theories of Gravity; Square 4to 9" - 11" tall; 635 pages; Foreword by: T W B Kibble, FRS "In the last five decades, the gauge approach to gravity has represented a research area of increasing importance for our understanding of the physics of fundamental interactions. A full clarification of the gauge dynamics of gravity is expected to be the last missing link to the hidden structure of a consistent unification of all the fundamental interactions, based on the gauge principle. The aim of the present volume, with commentaries by Milutin Blagojevi and Friedrich W Hehl, is to introduce graduate and advanced undergraduate students of theoretical or mathematical physics, or any other interested researcher, to the field of classical gauge theories of gravity.This is not just an ordinary reprint volume; it is a guide to the literature on gauge theories of gravity. The reader is encouraged first to study the introductory commentaries and to become familiar with the basic content of the reprints and related ideas, then he/she can choose to read a specific reprint or reprints, and after that he/she should return again to the text and explore the additional literature, etc. The interaction is intended to be more complex than just starting with commentaries and ending with reprints." Readership: Advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers in physics, general relativity, and quantum gravity.

The Picture Book of Quantum Mechanics, Brandt, Siegmund &  Hans D. Dahmen
11 Brandt, Siegmund & Hans D. Dahmen The Picture Book of Quantum Mechanics
New York Springer-Verlag 1995 0387943803 / 9780387943800 Second Edition Hardcover Very Good+ with No dust jacket as issued 
A bright, solid book. As new, text unmarked ; B&W Illustrations; 9.30 X 6.30 X 1.20 inches; 423 pages; "In studying classical mechanics, students are often helped by the fact that intuitions developed in everday life can give one a good idea of the behavior of the idealized objects dealt with in introductory courses. In addition, equations encountered are sufficiently simple to solve even in relatively complex situations that students can further develop their intution by solving problems. In learning quantum theory, however, intutions developed for the classical world fail, and the equations to be solved are sufficiently complex that they can readily be solved without a computer only for the simplest situations. This book represents an attempt to jump the hurdle to an intuitive understanding of wave mechanics by using illustrations profusely to present the time evolution and parameter dependence of wave functions in a wide variety of situations. Most of the illustrations are computer-generated solutions of the Schr dinger equation for one- and three-dimensional systems. The situations discussed range from the simple particle in a box through resonant scattering in one dimension to the hydrogen atom and Regge classification of resonant scattering. This edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded to include a discussion of spin and magnetic resonance."

New Jersey World Scientific Publishing Company 2001 9810246544 / 9789810246549 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good- dust jacket 
Light wear to book, bump head of spine, tear base of DJ spine ; DJ in Mylar, bright, solid book ; B&W Illustrations; 1.3 x 8.6 x 6.3 Inches; 456 pages; Nuclear structure physics is undergoing a major revival, full of activities and excitement. On the experimental side, this is being made possible by advances in detector technology and accelerator capabilities that give access to data and nuclei (especially exotic nuclei far from stability) never before accessible. On the theoretical side, new concepts, ideas and computational techniques are advancing our understanding of effective interactions, nucleonic correlations, and symmetries of structure. This volume covers a broad range of topics on nuclear structure, including: collective excitations; proton-neutron excitation modes; phase transitions; signatures of structure; isospin; structure at both high- and low-angular momenta; recent developments in nuclear theory; the vast new realm of exotic nuclei far from the valley of stability; and the latest technological advances of detectors and facilities which will lead this branch of physics into the future.

New York North Holland 1989 0444870717 / 9780444870711 First American Edition Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Blue cloth boards show light shelf wear, small bumps, slight spotting of page fore edges. ; A bright, solid book.; 9.40 X 6.50 X 1.10 inches; 449 pages; "This second, companion volume contains 92 applications developing concepts and theorems presented or mentioned in the first volume. Introductions to and applications in several areas not previously covered are also included such as graded algebras with applications to Clifford algebras and (S)pin groups, Weyl Spinors, Majorana pinors, homotopy, supersmooth mappings and Berezin integration, Noether's theorems, homogeneous spaces with applications to Stiefel and Grassmann manifolds, cohomology with applications to (S)pin structures, Bäcklund transformations, Poisson manifolds, conformal transformations, Kaluza-Klein theories, Calabi-Yau spaces, universal bundles, bundle reduction and symmetry breaking, Euler-Poincaré characteristics, Chern-Simons classes, anomalies, Sobolev embedding, Sobolev inequalities, Wightman distributions and Schwinger functions.The material included covers an unusually broad area and the choice of problems is guided by recent applications of differential geometry to fundamental problems of physics as well as by the authors' personal interests. Many mathematical tools of interest to physicists are presented in a self-contained manner, or are complementary to material already presented in part I. All the applications are presented in the form of problems with solutions in order to stress the questions the authors wished to answer and the fundamental ideas underlying applications. The answers to the solutions are explicitly worked out, with the rigor necessary for a correct usage of the concepts and theorems used in the book. This approach also makes part I accessible to a much larger audience."
