Most widely held works by Siddhartha Sen
Topology and geometry for physicists by Charles Nash( Book )

33 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and German and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by physicists for physics students, this text introduces geometrical and topological methods in theoretical physics and applied mathematics. It assumes no detailed background in topology or geometry, and it emphasizes physical motivations. Topics include differential forms, homotopy, homology, cohomology, fiber bundles, connection and covariant derivatives, and Morse theory. Thoroughly recommended.? Physics Bulletin. 1983 edition
Elements of statistical mechanics : with an introduction to quantum field theory and numerical simulation by I Sachs( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elements of Statistical Mechanics provides a concise, self-contained introduction to the key concepts and tools of statistical mechanics including advanced topics such as numerical methods and non-relativistic quantum field theory."--Jacket
Many-body physics, topology and geometry by Siddhartha Sen( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book explains concepts and ideas of mathematics and physics that are relevant for advanced students and researchers of condensed matter physics. With this aim, a brief intuitive introduction to many-body theory is given as a powerful qualitative tool for understanding complex systems. The important emergent concept of a quasiparticle is then introduced as a way to reduce a many-body problem to a single particle quantum problem. Examples of quasiparticles in graphene, superconductors, superfluids and in a topological insulator on a superconductor are discussed. The mathematical idea of self-adjoint extension, which allows short distance information to be included in an effective long distance theory through boundary conditions, is introduced through simple examples and then applied extensively to analyse and predict new physical consequences for graphene. The mathematical discipline of topology is introduced in an intuitive way and is then combined with the methods of differential geometry to show how the emergence of gapless states can be understood. Practical ways of carrying out topological calculations are described."--

Role of Indian NGO's in housing and development : a critical appraisal by Siddhartha Sen( )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation examines the nature of Indian nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) involved in housing, and their impact on the living environment of urban slums, using 28 cases. The findings indicate that slums are not only pervasive, but perhaps even growing in India. An analysis of the literature establishes that Indians have traditionally formed NGOs to respond to needs that governments and the private sector have been unwilling or unable to provide. NGOs have also cooperated with the Indian central government to implement policies or to show innovative and alternative ways of program and policy implementation. At the same time, they have opposed government policies that they believed did not serve the best interests of the poor. Currently, the government has legitimized NGOs through increased governmental funding, and set distinct roles for them in development and housing. Despite this long history of NGO involvement in India, housing NGOs were found to be a relatively recent development that, until now, has not been investigated in a systematic manner. The study then analyzes 12 cases out of the 28 that were studied. Of these, four cases are analyzed in-depth and eight are presented to illustrate the richness and variety of NGO involvement in Indian urban slums. From the analysis of the case study material there emerges a portrait of Indian NGOs as resourceful and effective providers of important services in slum community. Despite such resourcefulness and innovation, the problems that NGOs seek to address persist, suggesting that housing NGOs may be a part of a comprehensive solution but not sufficiently powerful in and of themselves to ameliorate slum housing. The missing ingredients can rest in the hands of a duly elected government, although the government alone cannot be held responsible for the housing imbalance and shortage that exists in India today. The study points out that there are at least six different explanations of why slums continue to exist in India. Having described all the shortcomings of both the housing NGOs and the government, the study attempts to suggest comprehensive solutions to the problem of slum housing. The study concludes with implications for future research
