Electrodynamics by Fulvio Melia

Book Description

Practically all of modern physics deals with fields functions of space (or spacetime) that give the value of a certain quantity, such as the temperature, in terms of its location within a prescribed volume. Electrodynamics is a comprehensive study of the field produced by (and interacting with) charged particles, which in practice means almost all matter. Fulvio Melia's "Electrodynamics" offers a concise, compact, yet complete treatment of this important branch of physics. Unlike most of the standard texts, "Electrodynamics" neither assumes familiarity with basic concepts nor ends before reaching advanced theoretical principles. Instead this book takes a continuous approach, leading the reader from fundamental physical principles through to a relativistic Lagrangian formalism that overlaps with the field theoretic techniques used in other branches of advanced physics. Avoiding unnecessary technical details and calculations, "Electrodynamics" will serve both as a useful supplemental text for graduate and advanced undergraduate students and as a helpful overview for physicists who specialize in other fields."

Cracking the Einstein Code by Fulvio Melia Cracking the Einstein Code, Hardback (August 2009)

Cambridge graduate Roy Kerr solved the mathematical code - represented by six interlocking equations - of Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity in 1963. This title offers an account of the events leading up to Kerr's great discovery. It reveals the history behind the search for the real world solution to Einstein's field equations.

High-Energy Astrophysics by Fulvio Melia High-Energy Astrophysics, Paperback (January 2009)

High-energy astrophysics involves the study of exceedingly dynamic and energetic phenomena occurring near the most extreme celestial objects known to exist, such as black holes, neutron stars, white dwarfs, and supernova remnants. This title introduces topics at the forefront of research, including relativistic particles, and energetic radiation.

Galactic Supermassive Black Hole by Fulvio Melia Galactic Supermassive Black Hole, Paperback (March 2007)

The closest galactic nucleus in the universe, Sagittarius A* can provide us with a realistic expectation of learning about the physics of strong gravitational fields. This book provides an overview of the ideas and discoveries pertaining to the supermassive black hole at the galactic center known as Sagittarius A*.

Edge of Infinity by Fulvio Melia Edge of Infinity, Hardback (September 2003)

Answers to some of the most intriguing questions now being asked about black holes.
