The Casimir Effect, 9789810243975 (9810243979), World Scientific Publishing, 2001
"... the book is very comprehensive, clearly written and filled with wonderful physics." -- CERN Courier, Mar 2002

"Milton's attractively slim book will guide the serious beginner and its analytical rigor should also attract experienced theorists" -- Physics Today, Jan 2003

"Provides an outstanding review of the present state of the theory and applications of Casmir effects to diverse problems." -- American Journal of Physics, Jan 2003

Milton surveys the field while emphasizing the Green's function technique in concrete calculations. -- Zentralblatt MATH

The book belongs on the shelf of anyone who wishes to make practical calculations involving the Casimir effect. -- Mathematical Reviews, 2003

In its simplest manifestation, the Casimir effect is a quantum force of attraction between two parallel uncharged conducting plates. More generally, it refers to the interaction - which may be either attractive or repulsive - between material bodies due to quantum fluctuations in whatever fields are relevant. It is a local version of the van der Waals force between molecules. Its sweep ranges from perhaps its being the origin of the cosmological constant to its being responsible for the confinement of quarks. This monograph develops the theory of such forces, based primarily on physically transparent Green's function techniques, and makes applications from quarks to the cosmos, as well as observable consequences in condensed matter systems. It is aimed at graduate students and researchers in theoretical physics, quantum field theory, and applied mathematics.
