Introduction To The Physics Of Gyrotrons

Gregory Nusinovich is recognized as one of the world's leading experts on gyrotrons, and his book is a substantial and stimulating piece of work that makes a distinct and very original contribution to the field. This book will be of interest to undergraduate and graduate students as well as to those who develop gyrotrons or who use them in various applications. It should also appeal to plasma physicists interested in charged-particle...

How Schrodinger’s Cat Escaped The Box

This book attempts to explain the core of physics, the origin of everything and anything. It explains why physics at the most fundamental level, and especially quantum mechanics, has moved away from naïve realism towards abstraction, and how this means that we can begin to answer some of the most fundamental questions which trouble us all, about space, time, matter, etc. It provides an original approach based on symmetry which will b...
