Description : This volume contains some of Bogolubov's papers on quantum field theory and the theory of elementary particles. The work undertaken by the author in the 1950s gave rise to some entirely new concepts, which include his suggestion that an appropriate mathematical method for quantum field theory should involve distributions, and his dismissal of his contemporaries' view of divergences as a problem. Also included in this collection are Bogolubov's proof of the theorem that the scattering matrix is determined in each order of peturbation theory up to quasi-local operators, together with his formulation of the method of the renormalization group in quantum field theory

Description : Lawyer, philosopher, statesman and defender of Rome's Republic, Cicero was a master of eloquence, and his pure literary and oratorical style and strict sense of morality have been a powerful influence on European literature and thought for over two thousand years in matters of politics, philosophy, and faith. This selection demonstrates the diversity of his writings, and includes letters to friends and statesmen on Roman life and politics; the vitriolic Second Philippic Against Antony; and his two most famous philosophical treatises, On Duties and On Old Age - a celebration of his own declining years. Written at a time of brutal political and social change, Cicero's lucid ethical writings formed the foundation of the Western liberal tradition in political and moral thought that continues to this day.
