Bell Nonlocality£49.49 Valerio Scarani
9780198788416 Quantum technologies have seen a tremendous upsurge in recent years. Bell nonlocality, one of the most striking discoveries triggered by quantum theory, has been instrumental in this trend. It states that in some situations measurements of physical systems do not reveal preexisting properties, but properties are created by the measurement itself. 

Physics: A Very Short Introduction£8.99 Sidney Perkowitz
9780198813941 Physics encompasses all levels of nature from the subatomic to the cosmic, and underlies much of the technology around us. From modern quantum mechanics to cosmology, digital electronics, and energy production, this book discusses why physics is worth doing and how physicists do it. 

Matter: A Very Short Introduction£8.99 Geoff Cottrell
9780198806547 Geoff Cottrell explores matter, from its familiar forms as solids, liquids, and gases to plasmas, exotic forms of quantum matter, and antimatter. Discussing the origins of matter in the Big Bang, he looks at atoms, energy, mass, and the mysterious forms of dark matter and dark energy. 

Waves: A Very Short Introduction£8.99 Mike Goldsmith
9780198803782 From sound waves to gravitational waves, and from waves of light to crashing rollers on the ocean, Mike Goldsmith explores the fundamental features shared by all waves in the natural world, and considers the range of phenomena resulting from wave motion, including reflection, diffraction, and polarization in light, and beats and echoes in sound.
