Geometry of Constrained Dynamical Systems by John M. Charap

Book Description

Many of the fundamental theories of modern physics can be considered as descriptions of dynamical systems subjected to constraints. The study of these constrained dynamical systems, in particular the problems encountered in formulating them as quantum systems, has many profound links with geometry. These links were explored in the Symposium on Geometry and Gravity, held at the Newton Institute in 1994. This book arose from a conference held during that symposium, and is a collection of papers devoted to problems such as Chern-Simons theory, sigma-models, gauge invariance and loop quantization, general relativity and the notion of time and quantum gravity. They present a lively, varied and topical perspective on this important branch of theoretical physics, from some of the leading authorities in the subject.

Explaining the Universe by John M. Charap Explaining the Universe, Paperback (March 2004)

Offers a view of the physicist's world. Providing a review of the 20th century's transformation of physics, this work checks in on the findings from particle physics, astrophysics, chaos theory, and cosmology. It explains how superstring theory may unite quantum mechanics with general relativity to produce a consistent quantum theory of gravity.
