Notes on the Quantum Theory of Angular Momentum
Informative review considers the development of fundamental commutation relations for angular momentum components and vector operators. Additional topics include the computation and application of matrix elements of scalar, vector, and tensor operators for deriving useful relations in the theory of magnetic moments, electric quadruple moments, and dipole transition probabilities.$17.99
Tensors, Differential Forms, and Variational Principles
Incisive, self-contained account of tensor analysis and the calculus of exterior differential forms, interaction between the concept of invariance and the calculus of variations. Emphasis is on analytical techniques, with large number of problems, from routine manipulative exercises to technically difficult assignments.$2.99

First Steps in Differential Geometry
Riemannian, Contact, Symplectic
Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics
Differential geometry arguably offers the smoothest transition from the standard university mathematics sequence of the first four semesters in calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations to the higher levels of abstraction and proof encountered at the upper division by mathematics majors. Today it is possible to describe differential geometry as "the study of structures on the tangent$12.99
Introduction to Tensor Calculus, Relativity and Cosmology
Elementary introduction pays special attention to aspects of tensor calculus and relativity that students find most difficult. Contents include tensors in curved spaces and application to general relativity theory; black holes; gravitational waves; application of general relativity principles to cosmology. Numerous exercises. Solution guide available upon request. 1982 edition.$18.99
Introduction to Vector and Tensor Analysis
A broad introductory treatment, this volume examines general Cartesian coordinates, the cross product, Einstein's special theory of relativity, bases in general coordinate systems, maxima and minima of functions of two variables, line integrals, integral theorems, fundamental notions in n-space, Riemannian geometry, algebraic properties of the curvature tensor, and more. 1963 edition.$11.99
Einstein's Relativity, Symmetry, and Space-Time
Six lectures, all regarding the most revolutionary discovery in twentieth-century physics: Einstein's Theory of Relativity. No one--not even Einstein himself--explained these difficult, anti-intuitive concepts more clearly, or with more verve and gusto, than Feynman.$2.99
Quantum Physics: From Illusion to Reality
The double-slit experiment has been widely discussed since the founding of quantum mechanics. Nearly all textbooks on quantum mechanics use the experiment to illustrate the wave-particle duality of light and matter. According to Richard Feynman, the double-slit experiment contains the only mystery of quantum mechanics. After we have unveiled the mystery, we will be able to understand quantum$16.99
Quantum Mechanics in Simple Matrix Form
With this text, basic quantum mechanics becomes accessible to undergraduates with no background in mathematics beyond algebra. Containing more than 100 problems, it provides an easy way to learn part of the quantum language and to employ this new skill in solving problems. 38 figures. 1986 edition.
