About the Series

Frontiers in Physics

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,, to discuss new title ideas.
