Fundamental forces of nature : the story of gauge fields by
Kerson Huang(
)
29 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 1,830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book tells the story of gauge fields, from Maxwell's 1860 theory of electromagnetism to the 1954 theory of Yang and Mills that underlies the Standard Model of elementary particle theory. In the course of the narration, the author introduces people and events in experimental and theoretical physics that contribute to ideas that have shaped our conception of the physical world."BOOK JACKET

Quantum field theory : from operators to path integrals by
Kerson Huang(
Book
)
33 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Quantum field theory is frequently approached from the perspective of particle physics. This book adopts a more general point of view and includes applications of condensed matter physics. Written by a highly respected writer and researcher, it first develops traditional concepts, including Feynman graphs, before moving on to key topics such as functional integrals statistical mechanics, and Wilson's renormalization group. The connection between the latter and conventional perturbative renormalization is explained."BOOK JACKET. "Quantum Field Theory is an exceptional textbook for graduate students familiar with advance quantum mechanics as well as physicists with an interest in theoretical physics."BOOK JACKET

Introduction to statistical physics by
Kerson Huang(
Book
)
36 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and Polish and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Written by a worldrenowned theoretical physicist, Introduction to Statistical Physics, Second Edition clarifies the properties of matter collectively in terms of the physical laws governing atomic motion. This second edition expands upon the original to include many additional exercises and more pedagogically oriented discussions that fully explain the concepts and applications. The book first covers the classical ensembles of statistical mechanics and stochastic processes, including Brownian motion, probability theory, and the FokkerPlanck and Langevin equations. To illustrate the use of statistical methods beyond the theory of matter, the author discusses entropy in information theory, Brownian motion in the stock market, and the Monte Carlo method in computer simulations. The next several chapters emphasize the difference between quantum mechanics and classical mechanicsthe quantum phase. Applications covered include Fermi statistics and semiconductors and Bose statistics and BoseEinstein condensation. The book concludes with advanced topics, focusing on the GinsburgLandau theory of the order parameter and the special kind of quantum order found in superfluidity and superconductivity. Assuming some background knowledge of classical and quantum physics, this textbook thoroughly familiarizes advanced undergraduate students with the different aspects of statistical physics. This updated edition continues to provide the tools needed to understand and work with random processes. (Book Cover)

I Ching, the oracle by
Kerson Huang(
)
15 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book contains a dramatic and revealing translation of this ancient classic into English. The Chinese original is set sidebyside with the translation. Two things set this work apart from other translated versions. First, archeological findings are used to uncover the meaning of passages obscured for thousands of years. Second, it preserves the flavor of the original in a poetic rendition. An introductory part of this book provides the historical and philosophical background to the I Ching. The story is told of the ancient Chinese civilization, pointing out events and figures mentioned in the I Ching. The undisguised face of the I Ching will appeal to the modern reader, who will read it in his or her own individual way, as poetry, as discoverer of self, or as soothsayer. It is in the grand tradition of the I Ching for different people to see different things. To Confucius, who was born in 550 B.C., it was a source of ethics. To Leibnitz, the eighteenthcentury inventor of calculus, it was the essence of binary mathematics. To Jung Freud's rival in psychology, it was an explorer of the unconscious. To some Wall Streeters, it predicts the stock market. This second edition includes a new chapter on a historical perspective, and other additions, changes and minor reformatting

A superfluid universe by
Kerson Huang(
Book
)
11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This interesting book provides the physical and mathematical background for a theory describing the universe as a quantum superfluid, and how dark energy and dark matter arise. Presenting a novel theory spanning many different fields in physics, the key concepts in each field are introduced. The reader is only expected to know the rudiments of condensed matter physics, quantum field theory and general relativity to explore this fascinating new model of dark matter and dark energy as facets of a cosmic superfluid. Readership: Students, researchers, and all readers interested in cosmology"

"Professor Kerson Huang was a well respected theoretical physicist, who was also well versed in English and Chinese literature. He was born in Nanning, China, on 15 March 1928, and he was a fellow at the IAS, Princeton, from 19551957 before joining the faculty of MIT. He remained there until he retired from teaching in 1999. His research in theoretical physics included works on BoseEinstein condensation and quantum field theory. In his long and illustrious career, Prof Huang has worked with many prominent physicists. In 1957, he published a theory known as the hardsphere model for Bose gases with Nobel Laureates ChenNing Yang and TsungDao Lee. With Noble Laureate Steven Weinberg, he studied the ultimate temperature and the thermodynamics of early universe. While he was at Princeton, he also worked with atomic bomb developer J Robert Oppenheimer. In recently years, Prof Huang had been a visiting professor at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and worked on both biophysics and quantum cosmology. This memorial volume is dedicated to Prof Huang who passed away peacefully at home on September 1, 2016 at the age of 88. The volume features the recollections of Prof Huang by his former colleagues and students, including Profs ChenNing Yang, Bailin Hao, as well as their reflections on Prof Huang's achievements in the various subdivisions of physics"
