#### Coherent Dynamics of Complex Quantum Systems

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2005; US$ 129.00A large number of modern problems in physics, chemistry, and quantum electronics require a consideration of population dynamics in complex multilevel quantum systems. The purpose of this book is to provide a systematic treatment of these questions and to present a number of exactly solvable problems. It considers the different dynamical problems frequently... more...

#### Complex Quantum Systems

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 83.00This volume is based on lectures given during the program Complex Quantum Systems held at the National University of Singapore's Institute for Mathematical Sciences from 17 February to 27 March 2010. It guides the reader through two introductory expositions on large Coulomb systems to five of the most important developments in the field: derivation... more...

#### Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Field Theory

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 48.00Multi-author volume on the history and philosophy of physics. more...

#### Discrete Gauge Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 86.00This book provides an introduction to topological quantum field theory as well as discrete gauge theory with quantum groups. In contrast to much of the existing literature, the present approach is at the same time intuitive and mathematically rigorous, making extensive use of suitable diagrammatic methods. It provides a highly unified description of... more...

#### Dynamics of Complex Quantum Systems

Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 149.00This book gathers together a range of similar problems that can be encountered in different fields of modern quantum physics and that have common features with regard to multilevel quantum systems. more...

#### Field Theory, Disorder and Simulations

World Scientific Publishing Company 1992; US$ 56.00This volume is a collection of lectures and selected papers by Giorgio Parisi on the subjects of Field Theory (perturbative expansions, nonperturbative phenomena and phase transitions), Disordered Systems (mainly spin glasses) and Computer Simulations (lattice gauge theories).The basic problems discussed in the Field Theory section concern the interplay... more...

#### Finite Temperature Field Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 61.00This book discusses all three formalisms used in the study of finite temperature field theory, namely the imaginary time formalism, the closed time formalism and thermofield dynamics. Applications of the formalisms are worked out in detail. Gauge field theories and symmetry restoration at finite temperature are among the practical examples discussed... more...

#### From Photons to Higgs

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 21.00This book presents a brief introduction to the quantum field theory of the Standard Model for quarks and leptons. With minimal use of mathematics, it covers the basics of quantum field theory, local gauge field theory, spontaneous symmetry breaking mechanism, the Higgs mechanism and quantum chromodynamics. From the time when the first edition was published... more...

#### Geometrical and Algebraic Aspects of Nonlinear Field Theory

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Experts in general relativity, particle physics and mathematical physics discuss aspects of their recent research. The main emphasis is on the geometrical and algebraic methods used in solving a wide range of problems. more...

#### How Is Quantum Field Theory Possible?

Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 224.99How can we know the microscopic world without a measurement theory? What are the general conditions of the world that make possible such knowledge? What are the presuppositions of physical theories? This book includes an analysis of quantum field theory, and quantum mechanics and interacting systems are addressed in a unified framework. more...
