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£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. 

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. 

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. 

Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Dynamics£31.49 Peter Mann
9780198822387 The book introduces classical mechanics. It does so in an informal style with numerous fresh, modern and interdisciplinary applications assuming no prior knowledge of the necessary mathematics.
