#### Discrete Gauge Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 91.00This 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...

#### Proceedings Of The Dirac Centennial Symposium

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 112.00Paul Adrian Maurice Dirac (1902?84) is one of the icons of modern physics. His work provided the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics. He also made key contributions to quantum field theory and quantum statistical mechanics. He is perhaps best known for formulating the Dirac equation, a relativistic wave equation which described the properties... more...

#### 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...

#### Precisely Predictable Dirac Observables

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 219.00In this book we are attempting to o?er a modi?cation of Dirac?s theory of the electron we believe to be free of the usual paradoxa, so as perhaps to be acceptable as a clean quantum-mechanical treatment. While it seems to be a fact that the classical mechanics, from Newton to E- stein?s theory of gravitation, o?ers a very rigorous concept, free of... more...

#### Quantum Field Theory in a Semiotic Perspective

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; Not AvailableIn this essay we discuss epistemological implications of relativistic quantum ?eld theory. The empirical domain of such a theory is formed by phenomena ascribed tosubnuclearparticles, sometimes still calledelementaryparticles. Thislattermoretraditionaldesignationre?ectsthelastingdesireofphysicists to eventually ?nd and isolate irreducible constituents... more...

#### Rigorous Quantum Field Theory

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 139.00Jacques Bros has greatly advanced our present understanding of rigorous quantum field theory through numerous fundamental contributions. The impact of his work is also visible in several articles in this book. Quantum fields are considered as genuine mathematical objects, whose various properties and relevant physical interpretations have to... more...

#### Quantum Information Theory and Quantum Statistics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 89.95This concise and readable book addresses primarily readers with a background in classical statistical physics and introduces quantum mechanical notions as required. Conceived as a primer to bridge the gap between statistical physics and quantum information, it emphasizes concepts and thorough discussions of the fundamental notions and prepares the... more...
