This book provides an innovative and mathematically sound treatment of the foundations of analytical mechanics and the relation of classical mechanics to relativity and quantum theory. It treats time as a transformable coordinate, and so moves the teaching of classical mechanics out of the ninteenth century and into the modern relativistic era. It... more...

Based on a highly regarded lecture course at Moscow State University, this is a clear and systematic introduction to gauge field theory. It is unique in providing the means to master gauge field theory prior to the advanced study of quantum mechanics. Though gauge field theory is typically included in courses on quantum field theory, many of its ideas... more...

Knowledge of the excitation characteristics of matter is decisive for the descriptions of a variety of dynamical processes, which are of significant technological interest. E.g. transport properties and the optical response are controlled by the excitation spectrum. This self-contained work is a coherent presentation of the quantum theory of correlated... more...

During this period Bohr's researches had a double aim: to develop a consistent and adequate quantum theory and to explain the structures and properties of the elements of the periodic system. ``The Correspondence Principle'' contains the papers and manuscripts dealing mainly with the elaboration of the general quantum theory. more...

Aimed at graduate students and researchers working in the spectral theory of Schrodinger operators with either fixed or random potentials in particular, this book establishes criteria for identifying the spectrum. It examines a series of applications to show point spectrum and continuous spectrum in some models of random operators. more...

Quantum mechanics is said to be the most successful physical theory ever. It is, in fact, unique in its success when applied to concrete physical problems. On the other hand, however, it raises profound conceptual problems which are equally unprecedented. Quantum logic, the topic of this volume, can be described as an attempt to cast light on the... more...

Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. But was he right? Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein's general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united in a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined?... more...

The time variability of many natural and social phenomena is not well described by standard methods of data analysis. Nonlinear time series analysis uses chaos theory and nonlinear dynamics to understand such seemingly unpredictable behaviour. Results are applied to real data from physics, biology, medicine, and engineering. more...
