Quantum Theory

  • Fundamentals of Nuclear Physicsby Noboru Takigawa; Kouhei Washiyama

    Springer Japan 2017; US$ 92.42

    This book introduces the current understanding of the fundamentals of nuclear physics by referring to key experimental data and by providing a theoretical understanding of principal nuclear properties. It primarily covers the structure of nuclei at low excitation in detail. It also examines nuclear forces and decay properties. In addition to fundamentals,... more...

  • Measurement of Quarkonium Polarization to Probe QCD at the LHCby Valentin Knuenz

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 92.42

    This thesis discusses in detail the measurement of the polarizations of all S-wave vector quarkonium states in LHC proton-proton collisions with the CMS detector. Heavy quarkonium states constitute an ideal laboratory to study non-perturbative effects of quantum chromodynamics and to understand how quarks bind into hadrons. The experimental results... more...

  • Quantum Isometry Groupsby Debashish Goswami; Jyotishman Bhowmick

    Springer India 2017; US$ 90.30

    This book offers an up-to-date overview of the recently proposed theory of quantum isometry groups. Written by the founders, it is the first book to present the research on the ?quantum isometry group?, highlighting the interaction of noncommutative geometry and quantum groups, which is a noncommutative generalization of the notion of group of isometry... more...

  • Reasoning About Luckby Vinay Ambegaokar

    Dover Publications 2017; US$ 18.95

    This book introduces college students and other readers to the uses of probability and statistics in the physical sciences, focusing on thermal and statistical physics and touching upon quantum physics. Widely praised as beautifully written and thoughtful, Reasoning About Luck explains concepts in a way that readers can understand and enjoy, even... more...

  • The Electron Mass and Calcium Isotope Shiftsby Florian Köhler-Langes

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 92.42

    This thesis presents the first isotope-shift measurement of bound-electron g-factors of highly charged ions and determines the most precise value of the electron mass in atomic mass units, which exceeds the value in the literature by a factor of 13. As the lightest fundamental massive particle, the electron is one of nature?s few central building... more...

  • A Tour of the Subatomic Zooby Cindy Schwarz

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2017; US$ 27.99

    A Tour of the Subatomic Zoo: A guide to particle physics is a brief and ambitious expedition into the remarkably simple ingredients of all the wonders of nature. With hardly a mathematical formula, Professor Cindy Schwarz clearly explains the language and much of the substance of elementary particle physics for the 99% of students who do not aspire... more...

  • Factorization Algebras in Quantum Field Theory: Volume 1by Kevin Costello; Owen Gwilliam

    Cambridge University Press 2016; US$ 112.00

    This first volume develops factorization algebras with a focus upon examples exhibiting their use in field theory, which will be useful for researchers and graduates. more...

  • Introduction to the Physics of Electroweak Interactionsby S. M. Bilenky

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95

    Introduction to the Physics of Electroweak Interactions is a six-chapter book that first elucidates the deep-inelastic and elastic lepton scattering on nucleons (both cases of polarized and nonpolarized initial particles). Subsequent chapter presents a brief history of the construction of the phenomenological V-A weak interaction Hamiltonian. Other... more...

  • Quantenmechanik für Naturwissenschaftlerby Martin O. Steinhauser

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 20.53

    ?In diesem Lehrbuch erhalten Studierende der Naturwissenschaften einen Einstieg in die Theorie und Methoden der Quantenmechanik. Besonderer Wert wird dabei auf eine didaktische Aufbereitung des Inhalts gelegt, wobei unter anderem sehr viele vollständig gerechnete Beispiele innerhalb der Kapitel, sowie zusätzliche mathematische Ergänzungen als Erklärung... more...

  • Introduction to Topological Quantum Matter & Quantum Computationby Tudor D. Stanescu

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 89.95

    What is "topological" about topological quantum states? How many types of topological quantum phases are there? What is a zero-energy Majorana mode, how can it be realized in a solid state system, and how can it be used as a platform for topological quantum computation? What is quantum computation and what makes it different from classical computation?... more...
