Quantum Field Theory by Michio Kaku

Book Description

The rise of quantum electrodynamics (QED) made possible a number of excellent textbooks on quantum field theory in the 1960s. However, the rise of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and the Standard Model has made it urgent to have a fully modern textbook for the 1990s and beyond. Building on the foundation of QED, Quantum Field Theory: A Modern Introduction presents a clear and comprehensive discussion of the gauge revolution and the theoretical and experimental evidence which makes the Standard Model the leading theory of subatomic phenomena. The book is divided into three parts: Part I, Fields and Renormalization, lays a solid foundation by presenting canonical quantization, Feynman rules and scattering matrices, and renormalization theory. Part II, Gauge Theory and the Standard Model, focuses on the Standard Model and discusses path integrals, gauge theory, spontaneous symmetry breaking, the renormalization group, and BPHZ quantization. Part III, Non-perturbative Methods and Unification, discusses more advanced methods which now form an essential part of field theory, such as critical phenomena, lattice gauge theory, instantons, supersymmetry, quantum gravity, supergravity, and superstrings.

Future of the Mind by Michio Kaku Future of the Mind, Paperback (February 2015)

Recording memories, mind reading, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis - no longer are these feats of the mind solely the province of overheated science fiction. The author takes us on a tour of the top laboratories around the world to meet the scientists who are already revolutionising the way we think about the brain.

Best American Science Writing by Michio Kaku Best American Science Writing, Paperback (October 2012)

Covers the scientific inquiry-from biochemistry, physics, and astronomy, to genetics, evolutionary theory, and cognition. This title provides a comprehensive overview of the 2012 year's scientific developments.

Physics of the Future by Michio Kaku Physics of the Future, Paperback (March 2012)

We all wish we could predict the future, but most of us don't know enough about the science that makes it possible. This title is a hypothetical journey through the next 100 years of scientific innovation, as told by the scientists who are making it happen.
