Most widely held works by A Zee
Fearful symmetry : the search for beauty in modern physics by A Zee( Book )

49 editions published between 1986 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the efforts to develop a unified theory of physics, looks at the roles symmetry and beauty have played in scientific research, and considers superstrings and the flow of time
Quantum field theory in a nutshell by A Zee( Book )

31 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A quantum field theory text for the twenty-first century, this book makes the essential tool of modern theoretical physics available to any student who has completed a course on quantum mechanics and is eager to go on." "Without a solid understanding of quantum field theory, no student can claim to have mastered contemporary theoretical physics. Offering a remarkably accessible conceptual introduction, this text will be widely welcomed and used."--Jacket
An old man's toy : gravity at work and play in Einstein's universe by A Zee( Book )

7 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 1,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a brilliant gamol through the history of science and a fascinating glimpse of the physics of the future based around Einstein's revolutionary theory of gravity
Einstein gravity in a nutshell by A Zee( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This unique textbook provides an accessible introduction to Einstein's general theory of relativity, a subject of breathtaking beauty and supreme importance in physics. With his trademark blend of wit and incisiveness, A. Zee guides readers from the fundamentals of Newtonian mechanics to the most exciting frontiers of research today, including de Sitter and anti-de Sitter spacetimes, Kaluza-Klein theory, and brane worlds. Unlike other books on Einstein gravity, this book emphasizes the action principle and group theory as guides in constructing physical theories. Zee treats various topics in a spiral style that is easy on beginners, and includes anecdotes from the history of physics that will appeal to students and experts alike. He takes a friendly approach to the required mathematics, yet does not shy away from more advanced mathematical topics such as differential forms. The extensive discussion of black holes includes rotating and extremal black holes and Hawking radiation. The ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate students, Einstein Gravity in a Nutshell also provides an essential resource for professional physicists and is accessible to anyone familiar with classical mechanics and electromagnetism. It features numerous exercises as well as detailed appendices covering a multitude of topics not readily found elsewhere. Provides an accessible introduction to Einstein's general theory of relativity Guides readers from Newtonian mechanics to the frontiers of modern research Emphasizes symmetry and the Einstein-Hilbert action Covers topics not found in standard textbooks on Einstein gravity Includes interesting historical asides Features numerous exercises and detailed appendices Ideal for students, physicists, and scientifically minded lay readers Solutions manual (available only to teachers) "--
Swallowing clouds by A Zee( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physics professor Zee writes about how to understand the menus in Chinese restaurants, explaining the characters, what they mean, and the colorful stories behind the names of various dishes. Anne Tyler (in the Washington Post) called Swallowing Clouds "a study of the very nature of Chinese culture. Zee has a quirky, personal style that draws the reader in." A. Zee is professor of theoretical physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the author of Fearful Symmetry: The Search for Beauty in Modern Physics and An Old Man's Toy: Gravity at Work and Play in Einstein's Universe
QED : the strange theory of light and matter by Richard P Feynman( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides an introduction to QED (quantum electrodynamics), that part of quantum field theory describing the interactions of light with charged particles. Using everyday language, spatial concepts, visualizations, and his renowned "Feynman diagrams" instead of advanced mathematics, the author communicates both the substance and spirit of QED to the layperson
Unity of forces in the universe by A Zee( Book )

12 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are now closer than ever to the fundamental goal of physics of understanding all physical phenomena as the inevitable consequences of few simple principles. The grand unified theory of the strong, weak and electromagnetic interactions has, among other things, explained the quantization of charge, determined the magnitude of the neutral current, and had dramatic impact on cosmology. This book is designed to bring interested students and researchers rapidly up to the point where they can contribute to this exciting field. A substantial text provides a review of the subject. In particular, several chapters are devoted to cosmology and the theory of galaxy formation. A selection of original papers is reprinted. A brief review of group theory is also provided. It is a must for all students and researchers in the field
Group theory in a nutshell for physicists by A Zee( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although group theory is a mathematical subject, it is indispensable to many areas of modern theoretical physics, from atomic physics to condensed matter physics, particle physics to string theory. In particular, it is essential for an understanding of the fundamental forces. Yet until now, what has been msising is a modern, accessible, and self-contained textbook on the subject written especially for physicists. Group Theory in a Nutshell for Physicists fills this gap, providing a user-friendly and classroom-tested text that focuses on those aspects of group theory physicists most need to know. From the basic intuitive notion of a group, A. Zee takes readers all the way up to how theories based on gauge groups could unify three of the four fundamental forces. He also includes a concise review of the linear algebra needed for group theory, making the book ideal for self-study"--
