Quantum Theory

  • Foundations of Quantum Mechanicsby Travis Norsen

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 50.55

    Authored by an acclaimed teacher of quantum physics and philosophy, this textbook pays special attention to the aspects that many courses sweep under the carpet. Traditional courses in quantum mechanics teach students how to use the quantum formalism to make calculations. But even the best students - indeed,  especially  the best students - emerge... more...

  • The Anomalous Magnetic Moment of the Muonby Friedrich Jegerlehner

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 129.32

    This research monograph covers extensively the theory of the muon anomalous magnetic moment and provides estimates of the theoretical uncertainties. The muon anomalous magnetic moment is one of the most precisely measured quantities in elementary particle physics and provides one of the most stringent tests of relativistic quantum field theory as a... more...

  • Perturbative and Non-perturbative Approaches to String Sigma-Models in AdS/CFTby Edoardo Vescovi

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 102.28

    This thesis introduces readers to the type II superstring theories in the AdS5×S5 and AdS4×CP3 backgrounds. Each chapter exemplifies a different computational approach to measuring observables (conformal dimensions of single-trace operators and expectation values of Wilson loop operators) relevant for two supersymmetric theories: the N=4 super Yang-Mills... more...

  • Quantum Theory and Statistical Thermodynamicsby Peter Hertel

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 70.53

    This textbook presents a concise yet detailed introduction to quantum physics. Concise, because it condenses the essentials to a few principles. Detailed, because these few principles –  necessarily rather abstract – are illustrated by several telling examples. A fairly complete overview of the conventional quantum mechanics curriculum is the primary... more...

  • Search for Sterile Neutrinos with the MINOS Long-Baseline Experimentby Ashley Michael Timmons

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 102.28

    This thesis highlights data from MINOS, a long-baseline accelerator neutrino experiment, and details one of the most sensitive searches for the sterile neutrino ever made. Further, it presents a new analysis paradigm to enable this measurement and a comprehensive study of the myriad systematic uncertainties involved in a search for a few-percent effect,... more...

  • Tensor Network States and Effective Particles for Low-Dimensional Quantum Spin Systemsby Laurens Vanderstraeten

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 102.28

    This thesis develops new techniques for simulating the low-energy behaviour of quantum spin systems in one and two dimensions. Combining these developments, it subsequently uses the formalism of tensor network states to derive an effective particle description for one- and two-dimensional spin systems that exhibit strong quantum correlations. These... more...

  • Quantenchemieby Michael Springborg

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 45.99

    Vielen Studienanfängern der Chemie macht vor allem die Physikalische Chemie große Probleme. Dass Chemie nicht nur in Labors stattfi ndet, sondern sich auch mit mathematischen und physikalischen Formulierungen beschäftigt, stellt die Studierenden vor große Herausforderungen. Diesen Schwierigkeiten begegnet das vorliegende Buch, indem es schrittweise... more...

  • The Story of Light Scienceby Dennis F. Vanderwerf

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 67.01

    This book traces the evolution of our understanding and utilization of light from classical antiquity and the early thoughts of Pythagoras to the present time.   From the earliest recorded theories and experiments to the latest applications in photonic communication and computation, the ways in which light has been put to use are numerous and astounding. ... more...

  • Search for Flavor-Changing Neutral Current Top Quark Decays t → Hq, with H → bb̅ , in pp Collisions at √s = 8 TeV with the ATLAS Detectorby Shota Tsiskaridze

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 102.28

    This PhD thesis focuses on the search for flavor-changing neutral currents in the decay of a top quark to an up-type quark (q = u, c) and the Standard Model Higgs boson, where the Higgs boson decays to bb. Further, the thesis presents the combination of this search for top quark pair events with other ATLAS searches – in the course of which the most... more...

  • Effective Field Theories for Heavy Majorana Neutrinos in a Thermal Bathby Simone Biondini

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 102.28

    In this thesis we discuss the construction of an effective field theory (EFT) for non-relativistic Majorana fermions, show how to use it to calculate observables in a thermal medium, and derive the effects of these thermal particles on the CP asymmetry.  The methods described in this thesis allow a systematic and effective description of the non-relativistic... more...
