#### Schwinger's Quantum Action Principle

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99Starting from the earlier notions of stationary action principles, these tutorial notes shows how Schwinger?s Quantum Action Principle descended from Dirac?s formulation, which independently led Feynman to his path-integral formulation of quantum mechanics. Part I brings out in more detail the connection between the two formulations, and applications... more...

#### The Bumpy Road

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99This book examines the different areas of knowledge, traditions, and conceptual resources that contributed to the building of Max Planck?s theory of radiation. It presents an insightful comparative analysis that not only sheds light upon a fundamental chapter in the history of modern physics, but also enlarges our understanding of how theoreticians... more...

#### Physics from Symmetry

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 49.99This is a textbook that derives the fundamental theories of physics from symmetry. It starts by introducing, in a completely self-contained way, all mathematical tools needed to use symmetry ideas in physics. Thereafter, these tools are put into action and by using symmetry constraints, the fundamental equations of Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Field... more...

#### Continuous and Distributed Systems II

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 179.00As in the previous volume on the topic, the authors close the gap between abstract mathematical approaches, such as applied methods of modern algebra and analysis, fundamental and computational mechanics, nonautonomous and stochastic dynamical systems, on the one hand and practical applications in nonlinear mechanics, optimization, decision making... more...

#### The Functional Analysis of Quantum Information Theory

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 49.99This book provides readers with a concise introduction to current studies on operator-algebras and their generalizations, operator spaces and operator systems, with a special focus on their application in quantum information science. This basic framework for the mathematical formulation of quantum information can be traced back to the mathematical... more...

#### The Unknown as an Engine for Science

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 69.99This book explores the limits of our knowledge. The author shows how uncertainty and indefiniteness not only define the borders confining our understanding, but how they feed into the process of discovery and help to push back these borders. Starting with physics the author collects examples from economics, neurophysiology, history, ecology and philosophy.... more...

#### Statistische Datenanalyse

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 29.99Dieses Buch behandelt die statistische Datenanalyse, mit der jeder Physikstudent spätestens seit dem ersten Physikpraktikum konfrontiert wird: Fehlerrechnung, Gauß-Verteilung, Zählstatistik mit Binomial- und Poisson-Verteilung. Es wird sowohl Grundwissen behandelt, welches zum Verständnis statistischer Aussagen notwendig ist, als auch Rezepte und... more...

#### Fourier Transformation for Pedestrians

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 59.99This book is an introduction to Fourier Transformation with a focus on signal analysis, based on the first edition. It is well suited for undergraduate students in physics, mathematics, electronic engineering as well as for scientists in research and development. It gives illustrations and recommendations when using existing Fourier programs and thus... more...

#### Real-Time Visual Effects for Game Programming

Springer Singapore 2015; US$ 129.00This book introduces the latest visual effects (VFX) techniques that can be applied to game programming. The usefulness of the physicality-based VFX techniques, such as water, fire, smoke, and wind, has been proven through active involvement and utilization in movies and images. However, they have yet to be extensively applied in the game industry,... more...

#### Tensors for Physics

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 89.99This book presents the science of tensors in a didactic way. The various types and ranks of tensors and the physical basis is presented. Cartesian Tensors are needed for the description of directional phenomena in many branches of physics and for the characterization the anisotropy of material properties. The first sections of the book provide an introduction... more...
