Quantum Theory

  • The Standard Model in a Nutshellby Dave Goldberg

    Princeton University Press 2017; US$ 85.00 US$ 77.35

    For a theory as genuinely elegant as the Standard Model?the current framework describing elementary particles and their forces?it can sometimes appear to students to be little more than a complicated collection of particles and ranked list of interactions. The Standard Model in a Nutshell provides a comprehensive and uncommonly accessible introduction... more...

  • Can the Laws of Physics Be Unified?by Paul Langacker

    Princeton University Press 2017; US$ 35.00 US$ 31.85

    The standard model of particle physics describes our current understanding of nature's fundamental particles and their interactions, yet gaps remain. For example, it does not include a quantum theory of gravity, nor does it explain the existence of dark matter. Once complete, however, the standard model could provide a unified description of the very... more...

  • From Matter to Lifeby Sara Imari Walker; Paul C. W. Davies; George F. R. Ellis

    Cambridge University Press 2017; US$ 28.00

    This book tackles the most difficult and profound open questions about life and its origins from an information-based perspective. more...

  • Quantum Fuzzby Michael S. Walker

    Prometheus Books 2017; US$ 11.99

    Quantum physics has turned our commonsense notion of reality on its head. This accessible book describes in layperson's terms the strange phenomena that exist at the quantum level--a world of tiny dimensions where nothing is absolutely predictable, where we rethink causality, and information seemingly travels faster than light. The author, a veteran... more...

  • Quantum Information Theoryby Mark M. Wilde

    Cambridge University Press 2017; US$ 72.00

    Introduces many concepts and mathematical tools in quantum information theory, with over 100 pages of new material and exercises. more...

  • New Aspects of Quantum Electrodynamicsby Akitomo Tachibana

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 106.14

    This book presents new aspects of quantum electrodynamics (QED), a quantum theory of photons with electrons, from basic physics to physical chemistry with mathematical rigor. Topics covered include spin dynamics, chemical reactivity, the dual Cauchy problem, and more. Readers interested in modern applications of quantum field theory in nano-, bio-,... more...

  • Quantum Systems under Gravitational Time Dilationby Magdalena Zych

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 92.34

    This thesis introduces a new theoretical tool to explore the notion of time and temporal order in quantum mechanics: the relativistic quantum "clock" framework. It proposes novel thought experiments showing that proper time can display quantum features, e.g. when a  ?clock? runs different proper times in superposition. The resulting new physical... more...

  • From Classical to Quantum Fieldsby Laurent Baulieu; John Iliopoulos; Roland Sénéor

    OUP Oxford 2017; US$ 77.99

    Quantum Field Theory has become the universal language of most modern theoretical physics. This introductory textbook shows how this beautiful theory offers the correct mathematical framework to describe and understand the fundamental interactions of elementary particles. more...

  • Symmetry of Many-Electron Systemsby I. G. Kaplan; Ernest M. Loebl

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 72.95

    Symmetry of Many-Electron Systems discusses the group-theoretical methods applied to physical and chemical problems. Group theory allows an individual to analyze qualitatively the elements of a certain system in scope. The text evaluates the characteristics of the Schrodinger equations. It is proved that some groups of continuous transformation from... more...

  • Gas Lasersby E. W. McDaniel; William L. Nighan

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 72.95

    Applied Atomic Collision Physics, Volume 3: Gas Lasers describes the applications of atomic collision physics in the development of many types of gas lasers. Topics covered range from negative ion formation in gas lasers to high-pressure ion kinetics and relaxation of molecules exchanging vibrational energy. Ion-ion recombination in high-pressure plasmas... more...
