Bell Nonlocality£44.99 Valerio Scarani
9780198788416 Quantum technologies have seen a tremendous upsurge in recent years. Bell nonlocality, one of the most striking discoveries triggered by quantum theory, has been instrumental in this trend. It states that in some situations measurements of physical systems do not reveal preexisting properties, but properties are created by the measurement itself. 

Physics: A Very Short Introduction£8.99 Sidney Perkowitz
9780198813941 Physics encompasses all levels of nature from the subatomic to the cosmic, and underlies much of the technology around us. From modern quantum mechanics to cosmology, digital electronics, and energy production, this book discusses why physics is worth doing and how physicists do it. 

Matter: A Very Short Introduction£8.99 Geoff Cottrell
9780198806547 Geoff Cottrell explores matter, from its familiar forms as solids, liquids, and gases to plasmas, exotic forms of quantum matter, and antimatter. Discussing the origins of matter in the Big Bang, he looks at atoms, energy, mass, and the mysterious forms of dark matter and dark energy. 

General Relativity: A Concise Introduction£20.99 Steven Carlip
9780198822165 This is a short textbook on general relativity and gravitation aimed at readers with a broad range of interests in physics, from cosmology to high energy physics to condensed matter. The approach is "physics first": readers move quickly to the calculation of observational predictions and only then return to mathematical foundations. 

General Relativity: A Concise Introduction£41.99 Steven Carlip
9780198822158 This is a short textbook on general relativity and gravitation aimed at readers with a broad range of interests in physics, from cosmology to high energy physics to condensed matter. The approach is "physics first": readers move quickly to the calculation of observational predictions and only then return to mathematical foundations. 

Waves: A Very Short Introduction£8.99 Mike Goldsmith
9780198803782 From sound waves to gravitational waves, and from waves of light to crashing rollers on the ocean, Mike Goldsmith explores the fundamental features shared by all waves in the natural world, and considers the range of phenomena resulting from wave motion, including reflection, diffraction, and polarization in light, and beats and echoes in sound. 

AntimatterSecond Edition £8.99 Frank Close
9780198831914 Frank Close explores the strange mirror world of antimatter, revealing that reality is even more fascinating than the scifi stories suggest. Explaining the science behind one of physics' most extraordinary discoveries, he shows how, through understanding antimatter, we can shed light on some of the deepest mysteries of the universe. 

Relativity in Modern Physics£58.00 Nathalie Deruelle, JeanPhilippe Uzan, Patricia de ForcrandMillard
9780198786399 This comprehensive textbook on relativity integrates Newtonian physics, special relativity and general relativity into a single book. It emphasizes the deep underlying principles common to them all, yet explains how they are applied in different ways in these three contexts. 

The Astronomers' Magic Envelope: An Introduction to Astrophysics Emphasizing General Principles and Orders of Magnitude£20.99 Prasenjit Saha, Paul A. Taylor
9780198816478 Working physicists, especially astrophysicists, value `backoftheenvelope' calculations — short elegant computations or arguments that start from general principles and lead to interesting results. This book guides advanced undergraduates and lower graduates on how to understand astrophysics using general principles and concise calculations. 

The Elements of Relativity£26.49 David M. Wittman
9780199658640 This undergraduate textbook introduces relativity to a nontechnical audience. The "thinking tools" approach allows readers to understand at a much deeper level than popular treatments, and endofchapter problems (always lacking in popular books) help build and cement that understanding. 

Gravity!: The Quest for Gravitational Waves£20.99 Pierre Binétruy
9780198796510 What force do the Big Bang, the expansion of the Universe, dark matter and dark energy, black holes, and gravitational waves all have in common? This book uncovers gravity as a key to understanding these fascinating phenomena that have so captivated public interest in recent years, including the recent confirmation of gravitational waves. 

The Black Book of Quantum Chromodynamics: A Primer for the LHC Era£58.00 John Campbell, Joey Huston, Frank Krauss
9780199652747 This book provides an indepth introduction to the particle physics of current and future experiments at particle accelerators. The book will provide the reader with an overview of practically all aspects of the strong interaction necessary to understand and appreciate modern particle phenomenology at the energy frontier. 

A Dictionary of ScienceSeventh Edition £12.99 Jonathan Law
9780198738374 This bestselling dictionary contains more than 9,500 entries on all aspects of chemistry, physics, biology (including human biology), earth sciences, computer science, and astronomy. With clear and concise definitions and recommended web links for many entries, this AZ is a reliable reference work for science students as well as nonscientists. 

Gravity: A Very Short Introduction£8.99 Timothy Clifton
9780198729143 Gravity is the most immediately familiar of the four fundamental forces of nature, and its effects dominate many of the phenomena commonly observed. Timothy Clifton looks at the development of our understanding of gravity, from Newton's apple to gravitational waves and efforts such as string theory to combine gravity with quantum mechanics. 

From Classical to Quantum Fields£53.00 Laurent Baulieu, John Iliopoulos, Roland Sénéor
