The Absolute Differential Calculus (Calculus of Tensors)
Written by a towering figure of 20th-century mathematics, this classic examines the mathematical material necessary for a grasp of relativity theory. Levi-Civita's thorough treatment of introductory theories provides the basis for his discussions of fundamental quadratic forms and absolute differential calculus. Concluding chapters address physical applications. 1926 edition.$199.99
The Absolute Differential Calculus: Calculus of Tensors
A chief requirement in the study of relativity is absolute differential calculus, which Einstein used to mathematically develop his ideas. This classic was written by a founder in the field, offering a clear, detailed exposition. It examines introductory theories, the fundamental quadratic form and the absolute differential calculus, and physical applications. 1926 edition.$15.95
The Philosophy of Space and Time
A brilliantly clear and penetrating exposition of developments in physical science and mathematics brought about by the advent of non-Euclidean geometries, including in-depth coverage of the foundations of geometry, the theory of time, Einstein's theory of relativity and its consequences, other key topics.$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.$12.95
Lectures on Partial Differential Equations
Graduate-level exposition by noted Russian mathematician offers rigorous, transparent, highly readable coverage of classification of equations, hyperbolic equations, elliptic equations and parabolic equations. Wealth of commentary and insight invaluable for deepening understanding of problems considered in text. Translated from the Russian by A. Shenitzer.$15.19
A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion
The Essential Scientific Works of Albert Einstein
With commentary by the greatest physicist of our time, Stephen Hawking, this anthology has garnered impressive reviews. PW has called it a gem of a collection” while New Scientist magazine notes the thrill of reading Einstein’s own words.” From the writings that revealed the famous Theory of Relativity, to other papers that shook the scientific world of the 20th century, A Stubbornly Persistent$64.59
Lie Groups, Physics, and Geometry
An Introduction for Physicists, Engineers and Chemists
Describing many of the most important aspects of Lie group theory, this book presents the subject in a 'hands on' way. Rather than concentrating on theorems and proofs, the book shows the applications of the material to physical sciences and applied mathematics. Many examples of Lie groups and Lie algebras are given throughout the text. The relation between Lie group theory and algorithms for$12.99
Mathematics for Quantum Chemistry
This concise volume offers undergraduates an introduction to mathematical formalism in problems of molecular structure and motion. The main topics cover the calculus of orthogonal functions, algebra of vector spaces, and Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulation of classical mechanics and applications to molecular motion. Answers to problems. 1966 edition.$32.39
The Special Theory of Relativity
Based on his famous final year undergraduate lectures on theoretical physics at Birkbeck College, Bohm presents the theory of relativity as a unified whole, making clear the reasons which led to its adoption and explaining its basic meaning. With clarity and grace, he also reveals the limited truth of some of the "common sense" assumptions which make it difficult for us to appreciate its full
