Classical Covariant Fields by Mark Burgess

Book Description

This 2002 book discusses the classical foundations of field theory, using the language of variational methods and covariance. It explores the limits of what can be achieved with purely classical notions, and shows how these have a deep and important connection with the second quantized field theory, which follows on from the Schwinger Action Principle. The book takes a pragmatic view of field theory, focusing on issues which are usually omitted from quantum field theory texts and cataloging results which are often hard to find in the literature. Care is taken to explain how results arise and how to interpret them physically, for graduate students starting out in the field. Many physical examples are provided, making the book an ideal supplementary text for courses on elementary field theory, group theory and dynamical systems. It will also be a valuable reference for researchers already working in these and related areas.

Winnie-the-Pooh Meets the Queen by Mark Burgess Winnie-the-Pooh Meets the Queen, Hardback (November 2016)

Winnie-the-Pooh keeps a very special appointment at Buckingham Palace. "It's the Queen. The Queen is coming." When Winnie-the-Pooh sets off for Buckingham Palace, London with Christopher Robin, Piglet and Eeyore to delivery a special birthday hum to Her Majesty for her 90th birthday, he never dares to imagine that he might actually meet the Queen.

Thinking in Promises by Mark Burgess Thinking in Promises, Paperback (July 2015)

The goal of Promise Theory is to reveal the behavior of a whole from the sum of its parts, taking the point of the parts rather than the whole. In other words, it is a bottom-up constructionist view of the world. Start Thinking in Promises and find out why this discipline works for documenting system behaviors from the bottom-up.

In Search of Certainty by Mark Burgess In Search of Certainty, Paperback (April 2015)

Soon, the world's information infrastructure will reach such a level of scale and complexity that scientists will have to approach it in an entirely new way. In this book, Mark Burgess focuses on the impact of computers and information today.

View from a Hill by Mark Burgess View from a Hill, Paperback (December 2014)

"A View From a Hill" is the complete untold story of The Chameleons and a cautionary tale of music-business trickery from the clever pen of Post-Punk legend Burgess, the band's lead singer.
