#### Topological Quantum Field Theory and Four Manifolds

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 89.58The emergence of topological quantum ?eld theory has been one of the most important breakthroughs which have occurred in the context of ma- ematical physics in the last century, a century characterizedbyindependent developments of the main ideas in both disciplines, physics and mathematics, which has concluded with two decades of strong interaction... more...

#### Precisely Predictable Dirac Observables

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 167.23In this book we are attempting to o?er a modi?cation of Dirac’s theory of the electron we believe to be free of the usual paradoxa, so as perhaps to be acceptable as a clean quantum-mechanical treatment. While it seems to be a fact that the classical mechanics, from Newton to E- stein’s theory of gravitation, o?ers a very rigorous concept, free of... more...

#### Quantum Field Theory in a Semiotic Perspective

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 56.13In this essay we discuss epistemological implications of relativistic quantum ?eld theory. The empirical domain of such a theory is formed by phenomena ascribed tosubnuclearparticles, sometimes still calledelementaryparticles. Thislattermoretraditionaldesignationre?ectsthelastingdesireofphysicists to eventually ?nd and isolate irreducible constituents... more...

#### Rigorous Quantum Field Theory

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 103.92Jacques Bros has greatly advanced our present understanding of rigorous quantum field theory through numerous fundamental contributions. The impact of his work is also visible in several articles in this book. Quantum fields are considered as genuine mathematical objects, whose various properties and relevant physical interpretations have to... more...

#### Quantum Information Theory and Quantum Statistics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 63.30This concise and readable book addresses primarily readers with a background in classical statistical physics and introduces quantum mechanical notions as required. Conceived as a primer to bridge the gap between statistical physics and quantum information, it emphasizes concepts and thorough discussions of the fundamental notions and prepares the... more...

This easy-to-follow guide helps you understand this complex subject matter without spending a lot of energy. Quantum Field Theory Demystified covers essential principles such... more...

#### Modern Quantum Field Theory

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 75.00Introduction to field theory for graduates in high energy physics and condensed matter physics. more...

#### Ultracold Quantum Fields

Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 95.56Here is a self-contained introduction to quantum field theory for many-particle systems, using functional methods throughout. It focuses on the behaviour of quantum fluids (quantum gases and liquids), but trapped atomic gases are always used as an example. more...

#### Quantum Statistical Mechanics
