About the Series

This long-standing, widely respected series was founded in 1961 in an effort to put forward coherent works that summarize developments in the most active and interesting areas of physics. It continues to serve that need, including textbooks, monographs, lecture notes, and professional manuals that aid in offering synthetic, authoritative accounts of the present state of the art in key subject areas of wide interest to physicists. The caliber of authors published in the series speaks to the high standards of its publication: R. P. Feynman, D. Pines, L. P. Kadanoff, R. Hofstadter, J. Schwinger, and many others.

New books in the series are commissioned by invitation. Authors are also welcome to contact the publisher, Lou Chosen, Executive Editor, [email protected], to discuss new title ideas.

Introduction To Ultrahigh Energy Cosmic Ray Physics

Introduction To Ultrahigh Energy Cosmic Ray Physics

2nd Edition

Forthcoming

Pierre Sokolsky, Gordon Thomson
October 27, 2020

This revised edition provides an up-to-date summary of the field of ultra-high energy cosmic rays, dealing with their origin, propagation, and composition,. The authors reflect the enormous strides made since the first edition in the realm of experimental work, in particular the use of vastly ...

Are There Really Neutrinos? An Evidential History

Are There Really Neutrinos?: An Evidential History

2nd Edition

Allan D. Franklin, Alysia D. Marino
February 28, 2020

This intriguing and accessible book examines the experiments on neutrino oscillations. It argues that this history gives us good reason to believe in the existence of neutrinos, a particle that interacts so weakly with matter that its interaction length is measured in light years of lead. Yet, the ...

Classical Electrodynamics

Classical Electrodynamics

1st Edition

Julian Schwinger, Lester L. Deraad Jr., Kimball Milton, Wu-Yang Tsai
September 11, 1998

Classical Electrodynamics captures Schwinger's inimitable lecturing style, in which everything flows inexorably from what has gone before. Novel elements of the approach include the immediate inference of Maxwell's equations from Coulomb's law and (Galilean) relativity, the use of action and ...

Statistical Physics of Dense Plasmas Elementary Processes and Phase Transitions

Statistical Physics of Dense Plasmas: Elementary Processes and Phase Transitions

1st Edition

Setsuo Ichimaru
December 17, 2018

This authoritative text offers a complete overview on the statistical mechanics and electrodynamics of physical processes in dense plasma systems. The author emphasizes laboratory-based experiments and astrophysical observations of plasma phenomena, elucidated through the fundamentals. The coverage...

Feynman Lectures On Computation

Feynman Lectures On Computation

1st Edition

Richard P. Feynman
July 07, 2000

When, in 1984?86, Richard P. Feynman gave his famous course on computation at the California Institute of Technology, he asked Tony Hey to adapt his lecture notes into a book. Although led by Feynman, the course also featured, as occasional guest speakers, some of the most brilliant men in science ...

Introduction To Ultrahigh Energy Cosmic Ray Physics

Introduction To Ultrahigh Energy Cosmic Ray Physics

1st Edition

Pierre Sokolsky
January 30, 2004

Cosmic ray physics has recently attracted a great deal of attention from the high energy physics community because of the discovery of new sources and the advent of new techniques. The result of a series of lectures prepared for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, this book is a general...

The Field Theoretic Renormalization Group in Critical Behavior Theory and Stochastic Dynamics

The Field Theoretic Renormalization Group in Critical Behavior Theory and Stochastic Dynamics

1st Edition

A.N. Vasil'ev
April 28, 2004

This volume provides a general field-theoretical picture of critical phenomena and stochastic dynamics and helps readers develop a practical skill for calculations. This education on the practical skill sets this book apart: it is the first to give a full technical introduction to the field. Both ...

Computational Plasma Physics With Applications To Fusion And Astrophysics

Computational Plasma Physics: With Applications To Fusion And Astrophysics

1st Edition

Toshi Tajima
February 13, 2004

The physics of plasmas is an extremely rich and complex subject as the variety of topics addressed in this book demonstrates. This richness and complexity demands new and powerful techniques for investigating plasma physics. An outgrowth from his graduate course teaching, now with corrections, ...

Statistical Plasma Physics, Volume I Basic Principles

Statistical Plasma Physics, Volume I: Basic Principles

1st Edition

Setsuo Ichimaru
February 13, 2004

Plasma physics is an integral part of statistical physics, complete with its own basic theories. Designed as a two-volume set, Statistical Plasma Physics is intended for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses on plasma and statistical physics, and as such, its presentation is ...

Statistical Plasma Physics, Volume II Condensed Plasmas

Statistical Plasma Physics, Volume II: Condensed Plasmas

1st Edition

Setsuo Ichimaru
February 13, 2004

The aim of this book is to elucidate a number of basic topics in physics of dense plasmas that interface with condensed matter physics, atomic physics, nuclear physics, and astrophysics. The different plasmas examined here include astrophysical dense plasmas - like those found in the interiors, ...

The Framework Of Plasma Physics

The Framework Of Plasma Physics

1st Edition

Richard D. Hazeltine, Francois L. Waelbroeck
January 23, 2004

This book provides an excellent introduction to the fundamental physics of plasmas, which comprise most of the matter in the universe. It is based on lectures that were used for an introductory plasma course at the graduate level....

Plate Tectonics An Insider's History Of The Modern Theory Of The Earth

Plate Tectonics: An Insider's History Of The Modern Theory Of The Earth

1st Edition

Naomi Oreskes
February 07, 2003

This book provides an overview of the history of plate tectonics, including in-context definitions of the key terms. It explains how the forerunners of the theory and how scientists working at the key academic institutions competed and collaborated until the theory coalesced....
