Analytical Mechanics

Professor Nivaldo A. Lemos takes part in a Q&A "It is hoped that, besides imparting the fundamental notions of analytical mechanics to fill the needs of most students, the book may prepare and persuade some readers to immerse themselves more deeply in, what I believe to be, a beautiful subject."


Quantum Field Theory for Economics and Finance

Author Belal Baaquie discusses his new book: Quantum Field Theory for Economics and Finance: "Quantum field theory (QFT) has been my primary domain of research. I was inspired to look beyond its applications in physics by the work of K. G. Wilson, who applied QFT to the classical phenomenon of phase transitions. I was convinced that uncertainty in the social sciences could also be similarly modeled by QFT".
