ChiSquared Data Analysis and Model Testing for Beginners£20.99 Carey Witkov, Keith Zengel
9780198847151 Recent groundbreaking discoveries in physics have relied on chisquared analysis and model testing. This is the first book to make this data analysis method accessible to students in introductory physics lab courses and others who need to learn this method, such as beginning researchers in astrophysics and beginners in data science. 

Concepts of Elementary Particle Physics£31.49 Michael E. Peskin
9780198812197 Oxford Master Series in Physics This particle physics textbook for senior undergraduates and early graduates explains the Standard Model of particle physics, both the theory and its experimental basis. The point of view is thoroughly modern. Theory relevant to the experiments is developed in detail but in a simplified way without needing full knowledge of quantum field theory. 

Quantum 20/20: Fundamentals, Entanglement, Gauge Fields, Condensates and Topology£31.49 Ian R. Kenyon
9780198808367 This textbook for upperlevel undergraduates covers the fundamentals and incorporates key themes of quantum physics. Major themes include boson condensation and fermion exclusivity, entanglement, quantum field theory, measurement precision set by quantum mechanics, and topology. 

Bell Nonlocality£44.99 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. 

General Relativity: A Concise Introduction£20.99 Steven Carlip
9780198822165 This is a short textbook on general relativity and gravitation aimed at readers with a broad range of interests in physics, from cosmology to high energy physics to condensed matter. The approach is "physics first": readers move quickly to the calculation of observational predictions and only then return to mathematical foundations. 

General Relativity: A Concise Introduction£41.99 Steven Carlip
9780198822158 This is a short textbook on general relativity and gravitation aimed at readers with a broad range of interests in physics, from cosmology to high energy physics to condensed matter. The approach is "physics first": readers move quickly to the calculation of observational predictions and only then return to mathematical foundations. 

The Astronomers' Magic Envelope: An Introduction to Astrophysics Emphasizing General Principles and Orders of Magnitude£20.99 Prasenjit Saha, Paul A. Taylor
9780198816478 Working physicists, especially astrophysicists, value `backoftheenvelope' calculations — short elegant computations or arguments that start from general principles and lead to interesting results. This book guides advanced undergraduates and lower graduates on how to understand astrophysics using general principles and concise calculations. 

The Elements of Relativity£26.49 David M. Wittman
9780199658640 This undergraduate textbook introduces relativity to a nontechnical audience. The "thinking tools" approach allows readers to understand at a much deeper level than popular treatments, and endofchapter problems (always lacking in popular books) help build and cement that understanding. 

Gravity!: The Quest for Gravitational Waves£20.99 Pierre BinĂ©truy
9780198796510 What force do the Big Bang, the expansion of the Universe, dark matter and dark energy, black holes, and gravitational waves all have in common? This book uncovers gravity as a key to understanding these fascinating phenomena that have so captivated public interest in recent years, including the recent confirmation of gravitational waves. 

A College Course on Relativity and Cosmology£30.99 TaPei Cheng
