Geometry, Topology and Physics, Second Edition (Graduate Student Series in Physics)

Buy
This book provides an introduction to the ideas and techniques of differential geometry and topology. It starts with a brief survey of quantum field theory, gauge theory, general relativity, vector spaces, and topology. Using many illustrations, exercises, and problems, the author demonstrates more elaborate concepts of topology and geometry, including fiber bundles, characteristic classes, and index theorems. New to this second edition is the proof of the index theorem in terms of supersymmetric quantum mechanics. The final two chapters examine anomalies in gauge field theories and the analysis of Polakov's bosonic string theory from the geometrical point of view.

…a very impressive book.
-Australian and New Zealand Physicists

The clarity of the presentation is enhanced by explicit calculations and diagrams; the proof of a theorem is given only when it is instructive and not very technical. There is also a large number of exercises and problems, and last but not least, an index … superb layout…
- Zentralblatt fur Mathematick un ihre Grenzgebiete

I believe that the book will not only boost modernization of the traditional courses of theoretical physics but will prompt the specialist in topology and differential geometry to have a closer look at the applications. So I welcome this second edition.

Développement d'applications avec Objective CAML

The desire to write a book on Objective Caml sprang from the authors' pedagogical experience in teaching programming concepts through the Objective Caml language. The students in various majors and the engineers in continuing education at Pierre and Marie Curie University have, through their dynamism and their critiques, caused our...

Understanding Atmospheric Dispersion of Accidental Releases
Understanding Atmospheric Dispersion of Accidental Releases
As introduction to the subject of this document, dispersion from accidental releases encompasses many different aspects. It includes the methods of classical air pollution modeling used in estimating the dispersion of dilute air pollutants, but also encompasses the more complex physics of dense-vapor and high-momentum releases, boiling and...
