Facing up : science and its cultural adversaries by Steven Weinberg ( Book )
18 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Each of these essays, which span fifteen years, struggles in one way or another with the necessity of facing up to the discovery that the laws of nature are impersonal, with no hint of a special status for human beings. Defending the spirit of science against its cultural adversaries, these essays express a viewpoint that is reductionist, realist, and devoutly secular. Each is preceded by a new introduction that explains its provenance and, if necessary, brings it up to date. Together, they afford the general reader the unique pleasure of experiencing the superb sense, understanding, and knowledge of one of the most interesting and forceful scientific minds of our era."--BOOK JACKET
Dark matter in the universe by Jerusalem Winter School for Theoretical Physics ( )
13 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If standard gravitational theory is correct, then most of the matter in the universe is in an unidentified form which does not emit enough light to have been detected by current instrumentation. This book is the second edition of the lectures given at the 4th Jerusalem Winter School for Theoretical Physics, with new material added. The lectures are devoted to the "missing matter" problem in the universe, the search to understand dark matter

Cosmology by Steven Weinberg ( )
15 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a uniquely comprehensive and detailed treatment of the theoretical and observational foundations of modern cosmology, by a Nobel Laureate in Physics. It gives up-to-date and self contained accounts of the theories and observations that have made the past few decades a golden age of cosmology
The quantum theory of fields by Steven Weinberg ( Book )
43 editions published between 1966 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this third volume of 'The Quantum Theory Of Fields' Weinberg offers a comprehensive introduction to supersymmetry, covering a broad range of topics including supersymmetric algebras, supersymmetric field theories, extended supersymmetry, supergraphs, and theories of supersymmetry in higher dimension
Statistical mechanics of membranes and surfaces by David R Nelson ( )
9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This invaluable book explores the delicate interplay between geometry and statistical mechanics in materials such as microemulsions, wetting and growth interfaces, bulk lyotropic liquid crystals, chalcogenide glasses and sheet polymers, using tools from the fields of polymer physics, differential geometry, field theory and critical phenomena. Several chapters have been updated relative to the classic 1989 edition. Moreover, there are now three entirely new chapters on effects of anisotropy and heterogeneity, on fixed connectivity membranes and on triangulated surface models of fluctuating me
The creation of the universe by Timothy Ferris ( Visual )

Lectures on quantum mechanics by Steven Weinberg ( Book )
15 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg combines his exceptional physical insight with his gift for clear exposition to provide a concise introduction to modern quantum mechanics. Ideally suited to a one-year graduate course, this textbook is also a useful reference for researchers. Readers are introduced to the subject through a review of the history of quantum mechanics and an account of classic solutions of the Schrödinger equation, before quantum mechanics is developed in a modern Hilbert space approach. The textbook covers many topics not often found in other books on the subject, including alternatives to the Copenhagen interpretation, Bloch waves and band structure, the Wigner-Eckart theorem, magic numbers, isospin symmetry, the Dirac theory of constrained canonical systems, general scattering theory, the optical theorem, the 'in-in' formalism, the Berry phase, Landau levels, entanglement and quantum computing. Problems are included at the ends of chapters, with solutions available for instructors at www.cambridge.org/9781107028722"--
