By Jürgen Jost
"Geometry and Physics" addresses mathematicians eager to comprehend sleek physics, and physicists eager to research geometry. It offers an advent to trendy quantum box conception and comparable parts of theoretical high-energy physics from the viewpoint of Riemannian geometry, and an advent to fashionable geometry as wanted and used in smooth physics. Jürgen Jost, a widely known study mathematician and complicated textbook writer, additionally develops vital geometric options and strategies that may be used for the buildings of physics. specifically, he discusses the Lagrangians of the normal version and its supersymmetric extensions from a geometrical perspective.
