Quantum Theory

  • First Search for the EMC Effect and Nuclear Shadowing in Neutrino Nuclear Deep Inelastic Scattering at MINERvAby Joel Allen Mousseau

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 94.71

    This thesis details significant improvements in the understanding of the nuclear EMC effect and nuclear shadowing in neutrino physics, and makes substantial comparisons with electron scattering physics. Specifically, it includes the first systematic study of the EMC ratios of carbon, iron and lead to plastic scintillator of neutrinos. The analysis... more...

  • Lattice Quantum Chromodynamicsby Francesco Knechtli; Michael GŁnther; Michael Peardon

    Springer Netherlands 2016; US$ 46.80

    This book provides an overview of the techniques central to lattice quantum chromodynamics, including modern developments.  The book has four chapters. The first chapter explains the formulation of quarks and gluons on a Euclidean lattice. The second chapter introduces Monte Carlo methods and details the numerical algorithms to simulate lattice... more...

  • Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) Based Quantum Computingby Takeji Takui; Lawrence Berliner; Graeme Hanson

    Springer New York 2016; US$ 83.82

    This book addresses electron spin-qubit based quantum computing and quantum information processing with a strong focus on the background and applications to EPR/ESR technique and spectroscopy. It explores a broad spectrum of topics including quantum computing, information processing, quantum effects in electron-nuclear coupled molecular spin systems,... more...

  • Jet Physics at the LHCby Klaus Rabbertz

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 119.75

    This book reviews the latest experimental results on jet physics from proton-proton collisons at the LHC. Jets allow to determine the strong coupling constant over a wide range of energies up the highest ones possible so far, and to constrain the gluon parton distribution of the proton, both of which are important uncertainties on theory predictions... more...

  • Wiley-Schnellkurs Quantenmechanikby Wilhelm Kulisch

    Wiley 2016; US$ 17.50 US$ 15.17

    Quantenmechanik: Der Begriff ist bekannt, aber was verbirgt sich konkret dahinter? Wilhelm Kulisch erklart Ihnen kurz und knapp das Wichtigste zu diesem Thema. Er erlautert Grundlagen zu Operatoren, Wellenfunktionen, Eigenwerten, Eigenvektoren und auch die Schrodingergleichung wird hier besprochen. Dann fahrt der Autor mit Potentialbarrieren, Drehimpulsen,... more...

  • Reality Is Not What It Seemsby Carlo Rovelli

    Penguin Books Ltd 2016; US$ 28.19

    From the best-selling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics comes a new book about the mind-bending nature of the universe What are time and space made of? Where does matter come from? And what exactly is reality? Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. Here he explains... more...

  • Dynamics and Characterization of Composite Quantum Systemsby Manuel Gessner

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 130.64

    This thesis sheds new light on the fascinating properties of composite quantum systems. Quantum systems of different sizes, ranging from small bipartite systems to large many-body ensembles, can be studied with the help of modern quantum optical experiments. These experiments make it possible to observe a broad variety of striking features, including... more...

  • EPFL Lectures on Conformal Field Theory in D ? 3 Dimensionsby Slava Rychkov

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 46.80

    This primer develops Conformal Field Theory (CFT) from scratch, whereby CFT is viewed as any conformally-invariant theory that describes a fixed point of a renormalization group flow in quantum field theory. The book is divided into four lectures: Lecture 1 addresses the physical foundations of conformal invariance, while Lecture 2 examines the constraints... more...

  • Search for Dark Matter Produced in Association with a Higgs Boson Decaying to Two Bottom Quarks at ATLASby Yangyang Cheng

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 94.71

    This thesis reports on the search for dark matter in data taken with the ATLAS detector at CERN?s Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The identification of dark matter and the determination of its properties are among the highest priorities in elementary particle physics and cosmology. The most likely candidate, a weakly interacting massive particle, could... more...

  • Quantum Field Theory IIby E. B. Manoukian

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 76.20

    This book takes a pedagogical approach to explaining quantum gravity, supersymmetry and string theory in a coherent way. It is aimed at graduate students and researchers in quantum field theory and high-energy physics. The first part of the book introduces quantum gravity, without requiring previous knowledge of general relativity (GR). The... more...
