Quantum themes the charms of the microworld by T Padmanabhan( )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Quantum theory is one of the more abstract branches of theoretical physics, yet it makes clear and concrete predictions which are repeatedly verified experimentally. More recently, there has been some confluence between the concepts of microphysics and those of macrophysics. Currently fashionable ideas in cosmology are also deeply linked to concepts from quantum theory, thus piquing greater interest in this subject. This timely book takes stock of what quantum theory has achieved and where it is leading to at present, in a manner understandable to an educated layman. The book describes concepts in a strictly scientific manner without trying to make them sound overly philosophical or "hyping" them up. At the same time, careful explanation of the concepts and details (including the technical terminology) are given in a nonmathematical language for the general reader. In particular, emphasis is given to the specific aspects of quantum theory that interface with gravity and cosmology, so as to keep the book reasonably up to date and focused on a key underlying theme
Theoretical astrophysics by T Padmanabhan( Book )
44 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a clear and authoritative book on all the fundamental physical processes graduate students need for cutting-edge research in astrophysics and cosmology
Structure formation in the universe by T Padmanabhan( Book )
14 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gravity, gauge theories, and quantum cosmology by Jayant Vishnu Narlikar( Book )
9 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cosmology and astrophysics through problems by T Padmanabhan( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The second half uses these concepts to develop modern cosmology and structure formation: topics include the expanding universe, the physics of high redshift objects and the very early universe. This unique self-study textbook will be of key interest to graduate students and researchers in cosmology, astrophysics, relativity and theoretical physics. It is particularly well suited to graduate-level courses
Gravitation : foundations and frontiers by T Padmanabhan( Book )
16 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Covering all aspects of gravitation in a contemporary style, this advanced textbook is ideal for graduate students and researchers in all areas of theoretical physics." "The 'Foundations' section develops the formalism in six chapters, and uses it in the next four chapters to discuss four key applications-spherical spacetimes, black holes, gravitational waves and cosmology. The six chapters in the 'Frontiers' section describe cosmological perturbation theory, quantum fields in curved spacetime, and the Hamiltonian structure of general relativity, among several other advanced topics, some of which are covered in-depth for the first time in a textbook." "The modular structure of the book allows different sections to be combined to suit a variety of courses. More than 225 exercises are included to test and develop the reader's understanding. There are also over 30 projects to help readers make the transition from the book to their own original research."--Jacket
Astronomy in India : a historical perspective by T Padmanabhan( )
10 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
India has a strong and ancient tradition of astronomy, which seamlessly merges with the current activities in Astronomy and Astrophysics in the country. While the younger generation of astronomers and students are reasonably familiar with the current facilities and the astronomical research, they might not have an equally good knowledge of the rich history of Indian astronomy. This particular volume, brought out as a part of the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations of Indian National Science Academy, concentrates on selected aspects of historical development of Indian astronomy in the form of six inv
Gravitation and cosmology : proceedings of the ICGC-95 Conference, held at IUCAA, Pune, India, on December 13-19, 1995 by Sanjeev Dhurandhar( Book )
7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The subjects of general relativity and cosmology have grown significantly in different directions during the last few years. This book, which is the proceedings of the 'International Conference on Gravitation and Cosmology - 95' (ICGC-95) highlights and reviews the current development in these fields. <br/> The book contains fourteen plenary lectures reviewing different areas of quantum and classical gravity, observational cosmology and gravitational radiation. It also includes detailed reports on five workshops dealing with the technical developments which have taken place in these areas during the last few years. This book will be of interest to research workers and graduate students working in the area of gravitation and cosmology
Theoretical astrophysics by T Padmanabhan( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of cosmology and extragalactic astronomy at an advanced level
Physics at the Large Hadron Collider by Amitava Datta( )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In an epoch when particle physics is awaiting a major step forward, the Large Hydron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Geneva will soon be operational. It will collide a beam of high energy protons with another similar beam circulation in the same 27 km tunnel but in the opposite direction, resulting in the production of many elementary particles some never created in the laboratory before. It is widely expected that the LHC will discover the Higgs boson, the particle which supposedly lends masses to all other fundamental particles. In addition, the question as to whether there is some new law of physics at such high energy is likely to be answered through this experiment. The present volume contains a collection of articles written by international experts, both theoreticians and experimentalists, from India and abroad, which aims to acquaint a non-specialist with some basic issues related to the LHC. At the same time, it is expected to be a useful, rudimentary companion of introductory exposition and technical expertise alike, and it is hoped to become unique in its kind. The fact that there is substantial Indian involvement in the entire LHC endeavour, at all levels including fabrication, physics analysis procedures as well as theoretical studies, is also amply brought out in the collection
