Einstein's steadfast refusal to accept certain aspects of quantum theory was rooted in his insistence that physics has to be about reality. Accordingly, he once derided as "spooky action at a distance" the notion that two elementary particles far...

A comprehensive collection of problems of varying degrees of difficulty in nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, with answers and completely worked-out solutions. An ideal adjunct to any textbook in quantum mechanics.

Well-organized volume develops ideas of group and representation theory in progressive fashion. Emphasis on finite groups describing symmetry of regular polyhedra and of repeating patterns, plus geometric illustrations.

Comprehensive text provides a detailed treatment of orthogonal polynomials, principal properties of the gamma function, hypergeometric functions, Legendre functions, confluent hypergeometric functions, and Hill's equation.

A comprehensive survey of the methods and theories of linear elasticity, this three-part introductory treatment covers general theory, two-dimensional elasticity, and three-dimensional elasticity. Ideal text for a two-course sequence on elasticity...
