Quantum theory

  • Basic Aspects of the Quantum Theory of Solidsby Daniel I. Khomskii

    Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 72.00

    Presents the main concepts and essential theoretical methods of the modern quantum theory of solids for graduate students and researchers. more...

  • Classical Theory of Gauge Fieldsby Stephen S. Wilson; Valery Rubakov

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 115.00

    Based on a highly regarded lecture course at Moscow State University, this is a clear and systematic introduction to gauge field theory. It is unique in providing the means to master gauge field theory prior to the advanced study of quantum mechanics. Though gauge field theory is typically included in courses on quantum field theory, many of its ideas... more...

  • Concepts of Highly Excited Electronic Systemsby Jamal Berakdar

    Wiley 2006; US$ 170.00

    Knowledge of the excitation characteristics of matter is decisive for the descriptions of a variety of dynamical processes, which are of significant technological interest. E.g. transport properties and the optical response are controlled by the excitation spectrum. This self-contained work is a coherent presentation of the quantum theory of correlated... more...

  • Condensed Matter Field Theoryby Alexander Altland; Ben D. Simons

    Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 82.00

    Pedagogical introduction to quantum field theory in many-particle physics, this book complements graduate level courses on many-particle theory. more...

  • The Correspondence Principle (1918 - 1923)by J.R. Nielsen

    Elsevier Science 1976; US$ 93.95

    During this period Bohr's researches had a double aim: to develop a consistent and adequate quantum theory and to explain the structures and properties of the elements of the periodic system. ``The Correspondence Principle'' contains the papers and manuscripts dealing mainly with the elaboration of the general quantum theory. more...

  • Determining Spectra in Quantum Theoryby Michael Demuth; Maddaly Krishna

    Springer 2006; US$ 169.00

    Aimed at graduate students and researchers working in the spectral theory of Schrodinger operators with either fixed or random potentials in particular, this book establishes criteria for identifying the spectrum. It examines a series of applications to show point spectrum and continuous spectrum in some models of random operators. more...

  • Handbook of Quantum Logic and Quantum Structuresby Kurt Engesser; Dov M. Gabbay; Daniel Lehmann

    Elsevier Science 2009; US$ 225.00

    Quantum mechanics is said to be the most successful physical theory ever. It is, in fact, unique in its success when applied to concrete physical problems. On the other hand, however, it raises profound conceptual problems that are equally unprecedented. Quantum logic, the topic of this volume, can be described as an attempt to cast light on the... more...

  • The Nature of Space and Timeby Stephen Hawking; Roger Penrose

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 14.95

    Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. But was he right? Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein's general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united in a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined?... more...

  • Nonlinear Time Series Analysisby Holger Kantz; Thomas Schreiber

    Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 69.00

    The time variability of many natural and social phenomena is not well described by standard methods of data analysis. Nonlinear time series analysis uses chaos theory and nonlinear dynamics to understand such seemingly unpredictable behaviour. Results are applied to real data from physics, biology, medicine, and engineering. more...

  • Quantum Fluctuations Of Spacetimeby Lawrence B Crowell

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 176.00

    Three key aspects of quantum gravity are considered in this book: phenomenology, potential experimental aspects and foundational theory. The phenomenology is the treatment of metric quantum fluctuations as torsional curves that deviate from classical expectations. This leads to possible experimental configurations that may detect such fluctuations.... more...
