The Road to Reality, Roger Penrose
Publisher:; Knopf (February 22, 2005)
ISBN10: 0679454438
ISBN13: 9780679454434
Roger Penrose’s book ”The
Road to Reality”, A Complete Guide to the Laws of the Universe, the Sunday
times and New York times and others: stated that, it is one of the top ten
best seller of the world’s most original thinkers. It is a complete comprehensive mathematical
background of the fundamentals of relativity and quantum physics, and covers
important aspects of classical physics, relativity, quantum physics, and
quantum field theory. As the Amazon review: If Albert Einstein and Isaac
Newton were alive, they would have it in their bookshelf.

This book covers important topics of the
condensed matter physics such as; basic quantum field techniques; path
integral, Feynman diagrams, Landau Fermi liquid theory, theory of strongly
fluctuating correlated systems (spin systems) . nonperturbative techniques, theory of integrable systems, and the physics of the world of one
spatial dimension.
Dynamics
of Biological Systems
di Michael Small, CRC Press,
Taylor & Francis,2012:
"From the spontaneous rapid firing of cortical
neurons to the spatial diffusion of disease epidemics, biological systems
exhibit rich dynamic behaviour over a vast range of
time and space scales. Unifying many of these diverse phenomena, Dynamics of
Biological Systems provides the computational and mathematical platform from
which to understand the underlying processes of the phenomena"

"Quick and brilliant, Micheael
Small book is
excellent for introducing the reader into the world of agents and networks,
providing all the basic tools”.
Introduction to Random Time and Quantum Randomness
by Kai Lai Chung (Stanford University, USA)
& JeanClaude Zambrini (Universidade
de Lisboa, Portugal)
(New Edition), World Scientific
“I recommend them to all readers who take
pleasure from an informal style of presentation, where an introductory
description to rather advanced probabilistic concepts is ornamented with
personal memories, anecdotes and reflections plus harsh comments on competing
or outdated viewpoints.”
Zentralblatt MATH
“This is a quite unusual and highly
stimulating book, written by two masters of their fields. While directed
primarily towards talented, broadminded and ambitious younger students of stochastics or mathematical physics, many more senior
researchers will find points of considerable interest in the expositions.”
Short Book Reviews
‘Invitation to Contemporary Physics
2nd Edition. World Scientific
by Q HoKim (Université
Laval, Canada), N Kumar (Raman Research Institute, India), & C S Lam
(McGill University, Canada)
“This is a very entertaining book, much like an extended banquet with a
choice of intellectual delicacies. Not to be consumed in one sitting, but
savored over many readings. The book addresses many of the most exciting
topics of the day: quantum computation, Bose–Einstein condensation,
cosmology, and nanotechnology. The presentation is engaging and smooth, and
the book is very enlightening and informative.”

A New Perspective on Relativity
An Odyssey in NonEuclidean Geometries,
World Scientific
by Bernard H Lavenda
(Universita' degli Studi di Camerino,
Italy)
"Lavenda's
book is the most comprehensive and subtle analysis of the relationship
between physics and geometry that led to the relativistic description of the
mechanics and gravity. And even for their most common misconceptions. A
must!"
