Product description

Review

'… the authors are to be congratulated on producing a timely work that should help to stimulate interest in this fascinating branch of theoretical physics.' Nature

'This book is a clear and cogent introduction to a partially charted territory that has already proved remarkably fertile. The cultivation of new ideas should be greatly aided by providing graduate students with this coordinated textbook.' The Times Higher Education Supplement --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

A comprehensive review of gravitational effects in quantum field theory, with special emphasis given to the Hawking black hole evaporation effect, and to particle creation processes in the early universe. All the major technical results are presented, and the theory is developed carefully from first principles. Everything that students or researchers need to embark upon calculations involving quantum effects of gravity. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
