Cosmology and astrophysics through problems by T Padmanabhan( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 300 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
Gravity, gauge theories, and quantum cosmology by Jayant Vishnu Narlikar( Book )
10 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 291 libraries worldwide
An invitation to astrophysics by T Padmanabhan( Book )
19 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 277 libraries worldwide
Gravitation : foundations and frontiers by T Padmanabhan( Book )
17 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 214 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
Gravitation and cosmology : proceedings of the ICGC-95 Conference, held at IUCAA, Pune, India, on December 13-19, 1995 by Sanjeev Dhurandhar( Book )
8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 131 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. 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
Quantum themes : the charms of the microworld by T Padmanabhan( Book )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 105 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 attracting greater interest in this subject. This 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."--Jacket
Stars and stellar systems by T Padmanabhan( Book )
17 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 53 libraries worldwide
This authoritative text guides graduate students and researchers through the key physical processes governing stars and stellar systems
Theoretical astrophysics by T Padmanabhan( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
This volume provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of cosmology and extragalactic astronomy at an advanced level
Sleeping beauties in theoretical physics : 26 surprising insights by T Padmanabhan( Book )
4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
This book addresses a fascinating set of questions in theoretical physics which will both entertain and enlighten all students, teachers and researchers and other physics aficionados. These range from Newtonian mechanics to quantum field theory and cover several puzzling issues that do not appear in standard textbooks. Some topics cover conceptual conundrums, the solutions to which lead to surprising insights; some correct popular misconceptions in the textbook discussion of certain topics; others illustrate deep connections between apparently unconnected domains of theoretical physics; and a few provide remarkably simple derivations of results which are not often appreciated. The connoisseur of theoretical physics will enjoy a feast of pleasant surprises skilfully prepared by an internationally acclaimed theoretical physicist. Each topic is introduced with proper background discussion and special effort is taken to make the discussion self-contained, clear and comprehensible to anyone with an undergraduate education in physics

A l'occasion des célébrations du jubilé de platine de l'Académie nationale des sciences de l'Inde, l'ouvrage propose une rétrospective historique de l'histoire de l'astronomie indienne en six chapitres éclairant chacun un développement particulier de cette science. Les deux premiers chapitres, par Balachandra Rao et M.S. Sriram, couvrent l'astronomie ancienne et le développement du calcul dans un texte ancien du Kerala, la Gaṇita-Yuktibhāṣā de Jyeṣṭhadeva (c.1530). Les quatre chapitres suivants (par B.V. Sreekantam, Siraj Hasan, Govind Swarup et Jayant Narlikar) traitent de l'histoire contemporaine de l'astronomie indienne (spatiale, optique, radio, astrophysique)
