#### Probing Correlated Quantum Many-Body Systems at the Single-Particle Level

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00How much knowledge can we gain about a physical system and to what degree can we control it? In quantum optical systems, such as ion traps or neutral atoms in cavities, single particles and their correlations can now be probed in a way that is fundamentally limited only by the laws of quantum mechanics. In contrast, quantum many-body systems pose... more...

#### The Few Body Problem

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 31.95The Few Body Problem covers the proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on the Few Body Problem, held in Eugene, Oregon, USA on August 17-23, 1980. The book focuses on relativistic and particle physics, intermediate energy physics, nuclear, atomic, and molecular physics, and chemistry. The selection first offers information on nucleon-nucleon... more...

#### Luttinger Model

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 127.00The Luttinger Model is the only model of many-fermion physics with legitimate claims to be both exactly and completely solvable. In several respects it plays the same role in many-body theory as does the 2D Ising model in statistical physics. Interest in the Luttinger model has increased steadily ever since its introduction half a century ago. The... more...

#### Entanglement Between Noncomplementary Parts of Many-Body Systems

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 139.00Located at the nexus of condensed matter theory and quantum information theory, this thesis examines entanglement, the purely quantum mechanical part of correlations, in many-body systems, and in doing so employs both numerical and analytical techniques. more...

#### Nuclear Collective Motion

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 116.00The two most important developments in nuclear physics were the shell model and the collective model. The former gives the formal framework for a description of nuclei in terms of interacting neutrons and protons. The latter provides a very physical but phenomenological framework for interpreting the observed properties of nuclei. A third approach,... more...

#### Brillouin-Wigner Methods for Many-Body Systems

Springer Netherlands 2009; US$ 359.00Brillouin-Wigner Methods for Many-Body Systems gives an introduction to many-body methods in electronic structure theory for the graduate student and post-doctoral researcher. It provides researchers in many-body physics and theoretical chemistry with an account of Brillouin-Wigner methodology as it has been developed in recent years to handle the... more...

#### Quantum Many-particle Systems

Westview Press 2008; US$ 43.99This book explains the fundamental concepts and theoretical techniques used to understand the properties of quantum systems having large numbers of degrees of freedom. A number of complimentary approaches are developed, including perturbation theory; nonperturbative approximations based on functional integrals; general arguments based on order parameters,... more...

#### Recent Progress in Many-Body Theories

World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 288.00This volume contains the main contributions to the 14th International Conference on Recent Progress in Many-Body Theories (RPMBT14) held at the Technical University of Catalonia, Spain, in July 2007. This conference, which was first held in Trieste in 1979, is devoted to new developments in the field of many-body theories, which are being applied and... more...

#### New Aspects of Plasma Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 333.00The “2007 ICTP Summer College on Plasma Physics'' was held at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy, during the period 30 July to 24 August 2007. The purpose of the summer college was to provide training for young scientists from all over the world, mainly from third world countries, and... more...

#### Computational Many-particle Physics

Springer 2007; US$ 139.00Complicated many-particle problems abound in nature and in research alike. Plasma physics, for example, or statistical and condensed matter physics are all heavily dependent on efficient methods for solving such problems. Addressing graduate students and young researchers, this book presents an overview and introduction to state-of-the-art numerical... more...
