Quantum Theory

  • 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...

  • The Universal Coefficient Theorem and Quantum Field Theoryby Andrei-Tudor Patrascu

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.71

    This thesis describes a new connection between algebraic geometry, topology, number theory and quantum field theory. It offers a pedagogical introduction to algebraic topology, allowing readers to rapidly develop basic skills, and it also presents original ideas to inspire new research in the quest for dualities. Its ambitious goal is to construct... more...

  • From QCD Flux Tubes to Gravitational S-matrix and Backby Victor Gorbenko

    Springer International Publishing 2016; Not Available

    This thesis studies various aspects of non-critical strings both as an example of a non-trivial and solvable model of quantum gravity and as a consistent approximation to the confining flux tube in quantum chromodynamics (QCD). It proposes and develops a new technique for calculating the finite volume spectrum of confining flux tubes. This technique... more...

  • Higgs, Supersymmetry and Dark Matter After Run I of the LHCby Béranger Dumont

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.71

    This work was nominated as an outstanding PhD thesis by the LPSC, Université Grenoble Alpes, France. The LHC Run 1 was a milestone in particle physics, leading to the discovery of the Higgs boson, the last missing piece of the so-called "Standard Model" (SM), and to important constraints on new physics, which challenge popular theories like weak-scale... more...

  • Lectures on Quantum Mechanicsby Jean-Louis Basdevant

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 78.61

    Beautifully illustrated and engagingly written, Twelve Lectures in Quantum Mechanics presents theoretical physics with a breathtaking array of examples and anecdotes. more...

  • From Chemistry to Consciousnessby Harald Atmanspacher; Ulrich Müller-Herold

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 78.61

    This book reflects on the significant and highly original scientific contributions of Hans Primas. A professor of chemistry at ETH Zurich from 1962 to 1995, Primas continued his research activities until his death in 2014. Over these 50 years and more, he worked on the foundations of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, contributed to a number... more...

  • Blackbody Radiationby Sean M. Stewart; R. Barry Johnson

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 189.95

    Shelving Guide: Electrical Engineering In 1900 the great German theoretical physicist Max Planck formulated a correct mathematical description of blackbody radiation. Today, understanding the behavior of a blackbody is of importance to many fields including thermal and infrared systems engineering, pyrometry, astronomy, meteorology, and illumination.... more...

  • Quantum Nonlocality and Realityby Mary Bell; Shan Gao

    Cambridge University Press 2016; US$ 124.00 US$ 101.68

    A collaboration between distinguished physicists and philosophers of physics, this important anthology surveys the deep implications of Bell's nonlocality theorem. more...

  • Fashion, Faith, and Fantasy in the New Physics of the Universeby Roger Penrose

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 29.95 US$ 23.96

    What can fashionable ideas, blind faith, or pure fantasy possibly have to do with the scientific quest to understand the universe? Surely, theoretical physicists are immune to mere trends, dogmatic beliefs, or flights of fancy? In fact, acclaimed physicist and bestselling author Roger Penrose argues that researchers working at the extreme frontiers... more...

  • Group Theory of Chemical Elementsby Abram I. Fet; Vladimir Slepkov

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 134.73

    In this monograph, group-theoretical approaches are used to build a system of hadrons and qualitatively describe the properties of chemical compounds. This serves as a complement to numerically and approximately solve the many-electron Schrödinger equation, in order to understand the behavior of chemical elements. Besides general theory, specific... more...
