The Absolute Differential Calculus (Calculus of Tensors)
Written by a towering figure of twentieth-century mathematics, this classic examines the mathematical background necessary for a grasp of relativity theory. Tullio Levi-Civita provides a thorough treatment of the introductory theories that form the basis for discussions of fundamental quadratic forms and absolute differential calculus, and he further explores physical applications.Part one opens$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.$27.95
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.$18.95
Introduction to Vector and Tensor Analysis
This broad introduction to vector and tensor analysis is designed for the advanced undergraduate or graduate student in mathematics, physics, and engineering as well as for the practicing engineer or physicist who needs a theoretical understanding of these essential mathematical tools. In recent years, the vector approach has found its way even into writings on aspects of biology, economics, and$18.09
The Special Theory of Relativity
In these inspiring lectures David Bohm explores Albert Einstein’s celebrated Theory of Relativity that transformed forever the way we think about time and space. Yet for Bohm the implications of the theory were far more revolutionary both in scope and impact even than this. Stepping back from dense theoretical and scientific detail in this eye-opening work, Bohm describes how the notion of$12.95
An Introduction to Linear Algebra and Tensors
The present book, a valuable addition to the English-language literature on linear algebra and tensors, constitutes a lucid, eminently readable and completely elementary introduction to this field of mathematics. A special merit of the book is its free use of tensor notation, in particular the Einstein summation convention. The treatment is virtually self-contained. In fact, the mathematical$9.95
Mathematics for Quantum Mechanics
An Introductory Survey of Operators, Eigenvalues, and Linear Vector Spaces
Advanced undergraduates and graduate students studying quantum mechanics will find this text a valuable guide to mathematical methods. Emphasizing the unity of a variety of different techniques, it is enduringly relevant to many physical systems outside the domain of quantum theory.Concise in its presentation, this text covers eigenvalue problems in classical physics, orthogonal functions and$30.59
From Financial Crisis to Stagnation
The Destruction of Shared Prosperity and the Role of Economics
The US economy today is confronted with the prospect of extended stagnation. This book explores why. Thomas I. Palley argues that the Great Recession and destruction of shared prosperity is due to flawed economic policy over the past thirty years. One flaw was the growth model adopted after 1980 that relied on debt and asset price inflation to fuel growth instead of wages. A second flaw was the$26.95
Fundamentals of Mathematical Physics
Indispensable for students of modern physics, this text provides the necessary background in mathematics for the study of electromagnetic theory and quantum mechanics. Clear discussions explain the particulars of vector algebra, matrix and tensor algebra, vector calculus, functions of a complex variable, integral transforms, linear differential equations, and partial differential equations. This$14.95
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.
