Bell Nonlocality

£44.99

Valerio Scarani

9780198788416
Hardback
August 2019

Oxford Graduate Texts

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 pre-existing properties, but properties are created by the measurement itself.

General Relativity: A Concise Introduction

£20.99

Steven Carlip

9780198822165
Paperback
January 2019

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.

£20.99

Prasenjit Saha, Paul A. Taylor

9780198816478
Paperback
June 2018

Working physicists, especially astrophysicists, value `back-of-the-envelope' 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.

In 1905 Albert Einstein produced breakthrough work in three major areas of physics (atoms and Brownian motion, quanta, and the special theory of relativity), followed, in 1916, by the general theory of relativity. This book develops the detail of the papers, including the mathematics, to guide the reader in working through them.

Ta-Pei Cheng

9780199573646
Paperback
November 2009

Oxford Master Series in Physics

This book provides an introduction to Einstein's general theory of relativity. A "physics-first" approach is adopted so that interesting applications come before the more difficult task of solving the Einstein equation. The book includes extensive coverage of cosmology, and is designed to allow readers to study the subject alone.
