#### From Classical to Quantum Mechanics

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 66.00This 2004 textbook provides a pedagogical introduction to the formalism, foundations and applications of quantum mechanics. more...

#### Feynman's Thesis - A New Approach To Quantum Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 15.00 US$ 13.65Richard Feynman?s never previously published doctoral thesis formed the heart of much of his brilliant and profound work in theoretical physics. Entitled ?The Principle of Least Action in Quantum Mechanics,? its original motive was to quantize the classical action-at-a-distance electrodynamics. Because that theory adopted an overall space?time viewpoint,... more...

#### First-principles Calculations In Real-space Formalism

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 116.00 US$ 105.56With cutting-edge materials and minute electronic devices being produced by the latest nanoscale fabrication technology, it is essential for scientists and engineers to rely on first-principles (ab initio) calculation methods to fully understand the electronic configurations and transport properties of nanostructures. It is now imperative to introduce... more...

#### Finite Size Effects In Correlated Electron Models

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 153.00 US$ 139.23The book presents exact results for one-dimensional models (including quantum spin models) of strongly correlated electrons in a comprehensive and concise manner. It incorporates important results related to magnetic and hybridization impurities in electron hosts and contains exact original results for disordered ensembles of impurities in interacting... more...

#### Weak Scale Supersymmetry

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 62.00A comprehensive, practical and accessible 2006 introduction to supersymmetry for particle physicists and graduate students. more...

#### Quantum Theory as an Emergent Phenomenon

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 46.00This 2004 book develops an approach to the conceptual foundations of quantum mechanics. more...

#### Gravitation

CRC Press 2004; US$ 231.00Although gravity is the dominant force of nature at large distances (from intermediate scales to the Hubble length), it is the weakest of forces in particle physics, though it is believed to become important again at very short scales (the Planck length). The conditions created in particle accelerators are similar to those at the time of the early... more...

#### Mathematical Methods of Many-Body Quantum Field Theory

CRC Press 2004; US$ 154.95Mathematical Methods of Many-Body Quantum Field Theory offers a comprehensive, mathematically rigorous treatment of many-body physics. It develops the mathematical tools for describing quantum many-body systems and applies them to the many-electron system. These tools include the formalism of second quantization, field theoretical perturbation theory,... more...

#### Density-Functional Theory of Atoms and Molecules

Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 55.00Provides an account of the fundamental principles of the density-functional theory of the electronic structure of matter and its applications to atoms and molecules. This book contains a discussion of the chemical potential and its derivatives. It is intended for physicists, chemists, and advanced students in chemistry. more...

#### Advances in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics

Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 250.00This volume continues the tradition of the Advances series. It contains contributions from experts in the field of atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) physics. The articles contain some review material, but are intended to provide a comprehensive picture of recent important developments in AMO physics. Both theoretical and experimental articles are... more...
