Renormalization Group
Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1995.
Maroon cloth, pp (143). Small abrasion to inner edge of front cover and spine edge, else a fine copy, no owner marks. Physics Notes No. 1. Scaling and self-similarity ideas and methods in theoretical physics have, in the last twenty-five years, coalesced into renormalization-group methods. This book analyzes, from a single perspective, some of the most important applications: the critical-point theory in classical statistical mechanics, the scalar quantum field theories in two and three space-time dimensions, and Tomonaga's theory of the ground state of one-dimensional Fermi systems.

Brodie, Ivor; Muray, Julius J.
The Physics of Microfabrication
New York: Plenum Press, 1987.
Fourth printing. Blue boards. pp 503, indexed. Fine copy, no owner marks, in VG jacket. The Physical Electronics Department of SRI International (formerly Stanford Research Institute) has been pioneering the development of devices fabricated to submicron tolerances for well over 20 years. In 1961, a landmark paper on electron-beam lithography and its associated technologies was published by K. R. Shoulderst (then at SRI), which set the stage for our subsequent efforts in this field. He had the foresight to believe that the building of such small devices was actually within the range of human capabilities. As a result of this initial momentum, our experience in the technologies associated with microfabrication has become remarkably comprehensive, despite the relatively small size of our research activity. We have frequently been asked to deliver seminars or provide reviews on various aspects of micro­ fabrication. These activities made us aware of the need for a comprehensive overview of the physics of microfabrication. We hope that this book will fill that need. In print (2017) at USD 319.00. 1.5 kg parcel.

"This book is intended to assist those who have not specialised in this branch of science, to make themselves familiar with modern X-ray physics. To this end a somewhat new treatment has been adopted. A well-illustrated chapter on X-ray spectographs increases the value of the work." - jacket. Maurice de Broglie was the elder brother of Louis de Broglie. They sometimes collaborated and co-authored a paper in 1921. Louis built on their shared research, but he was a theoretical physicist whereas Maurice was an experimental physicist. Louis was the first to postulate the wave-partical duality of matter, in 1924, and he won a Nobel Prize in 1929. Maurice did important work on in the study of X-ray diffraction and spectroscopy (he invented X-ray spectroscopy). In 1942 he assumed the Chair of Physics in the Collège de France and was elected to the Royal Society in London in 1940, having received their Hughes Medal in 1928 for his work on X-ray spectra. A superior copy of an important physics book.

Dunne, Gerald
Self-Dual Chern-Simons Theories
Berlin: Springer, 1995.
Yellow and orange boards. pp 217. Lecture Notes in Physics Monographs series. Fine copy, no owner marks. Self-dual Chern-Simons theories form a new class of self-dual gauge theories and provide a field theoretical formulation of anyonic excitations in planar (i.e., two-space-dimensional) systems. Much of the recent attention of these theories is due to the surprising and novel ways in which they differ from the standard Maxwell, or Yang-Mills, gauge theories. These Chern-Simons theories are particular to planar systems and have therefore received added research impetus from recent experimental and theoretical breakthroughs in actual planar condensed-matter systems, such as the quantum Hall effect. This book gives a pedagogical introduction to the basic properties of the "self-dual" Chern-Simons theories, concluding with an overview of more advanced results and an extensive bibliography. Such models possess Bogomol'nyi energy bounds, topological charges, vortex solutions, and supersymmetric extensions, features which are familiar from other well-known self-dual systems such as instantons, monopoles, and vortices. This book is intended mainly for graduate students having some familiarity with gauge theory, but will also be of interest to researchers in related fields.

Freund, Peter G. O.
Introduction to Supersymmetry
Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1986.
Blue boards. pp 152, indexed. Fine in fine jacket, no owner marks. Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics series. Just as ordinary symmetries relate various forms of matter to each other, and various basic forces to each other, so the novel concept of supersymmetry relates (Fermi) matter to (Bose) force. It is the aim of this book to provide a brief introductory description of the new physical and mathematical ideas involved in formulating supersymmetric theories. The book starts with a physical motivation of supersymmetry, a presentation of the mathematics of Lie superalgebras, supergroups and superspace. Techniques for constructing manifestly globally supersymmetric field theories are given, using the superfield formalism. To allow for a clear flow of ideas, the basic ideas and techniques are worked out in low space dimensionalities where the formulae do not obscure the concepts. Generalizations to four space-time dimensions are then readily come by. Some quantum aspects are discussed. Possible phenomenological applications are not emphasized. Supergravities, locally supersymmetric theories are then considered in 4 and 11 dimensions, in component formalism. An introduction to supersymmetry will be of interest to postgraduate students and researchers in theoretical and particle physics, especially those working in quantum field theory, quantum gravity, general relativity and supergravity. The book will also be of interest to mathematicians with an interest in theoretical physics.
