Explaining the Universe
John M Charap
In this fascinating book, John Charap offers a panoramic view of the physicist's world as the twenty-first century opens--a view that is entirely different from the one that greeted the twentieth century. We have learned that the universe is billi...
John M Charap
A notoriously difficult subject, covariant electrodynamics is nonetheless vital for understanding relativistic field theory. John M. Charap's classroom-tested introduction to the mathematical foundations of the topic presents the material in an ap...

Review of the hardback: 'Overall the book is interesting, provides a snapshot of the research in this field and a useful reference tool, that can replace scattered searching through the literature in the journals.' C. Rovelli, Classical & Quantum Gravity
