* Develops new tools to efficiently describe different branches of physics within one mathematical framework
* Gives a clear geometric expression of the symmetry of physical laws
* Useful for researchers and graduate students interested in the many physical applications of bounded symmetric domains
* Will also benefit a wider audience of mathematicians, physicists, and graduate students working in relativity, geometry, and Lie theory

From the reviews:
"The aim of this book is to present the theory of Jordan algebraic structures (Jordan triple systems) and their geometric counterpart, the so-called homogeneous balls, from the point of view of applications ot mathematical physics: special relativity, spinors and foundational quantum mechanics...The (senior) author has made important research contributions to all three areas described above, and the exposition of the theory and the applications is very careful. This makes the book suitable both for experts and non-experts interested in the applications." ---Mathematical Reviews
"This fine book provides a highly original approach to theoretical physics, its contents reflecting the author's and his ollaborators' copious contributions to many branches of mathematics and physics over the past years."(ZENTRALBLATT MATH)
