New book

Dramatic and lucid accounts of six monumental breakthroughs in physics—Newton's universal laws of motion and gravitation, electromagnetism, relativity, quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, and string theory—each told from the viewpoint of a (fictional) witness to the events. A tour de force of science made accessible.
Tasneem Zehra is a Pakistani theoretical physicist. She obtained her PhD in theoretical physics from Stockholm University in 2003, after which she went to Harvard University for a two-year postdoctoral research position. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

This volume is mainly concerned with a systematic development of the theory of plasmas, the authority being firmly rooted in the pioneering work of Landau. Corresponding results are also given for partially ionized plasmas, relativistic plasmas, degenerate or non-ideal plasmas and solid state plasmas.

Quantum field theory remains among the most important tools in defining and explaining the microscopic world. Recent years have witnessed a blossoming of developments and applications that extend far beyond the theory's original scope. This comprehensive text offers a balanced treatment, providing students with both a formal presentation and numerous practical examples of calculations.This two-part approach begins with the standard quantization of electrodynamics, culminating in the perturbative renormalization. The second part comprises functional methods, relativistic bound states, broken sy
