#### Statistical Mechanics

Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 72.95Statistical Mechanics discusses the fundamental concepts involved in understanding the physical properties of matter in bulk on the basis of the dynamical behavior of its microscopic constituents. The book emphasizes the equilibrium states of physical systems. The text first details the statistical basis of thermodynamics, and then proceeds to discussing... more...

#### Foundations of Statistical Mechanics

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95International Series of Monographs in Natural Philosophy, Volume 22: Foundations of Statistical Mechanics: A Deductive Treatment presents the main approaches to the basic problems of statistical mechanics. This book examines the theory that provides explicit recognition to the limitations on one's powers of observation. Organized into six chapters,... more...

#### Fundamental Problems in Statistical Mechanics, VIII

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95In keeping with the tradition of previous summer schools on fundamental problems in statistical mechanics, this book contains in depth treatemnts of topics of current interest in statistical mechanics and closely related fields. The topics covered include: dynamical impurity problems, quantum phase transitions, vortex liquids and glasses, quasicrystals... more...

#### Interferometry with Interacting Bose-Einstein Condensates in a Double-Well Potential

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 102.75This thesis demonstrates a full Mach–Zehnder interferometer with interacting Bose–Einstein condensates confined on an atom chip. It relies on the coherent manipulation of atoms trapped in a magnetic double-well potential, for which the author developed a novel type of beam splitter. Particle-wave duality enables the construction of interferometers... more...

#### Artificial Gauge Fields with Ultracold Atoms in Optical Lattices

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 102.75This work reports on the generation of artificial magnetic fields with ultracold atoms in optical lattices using laser-assisted tunneling, as well as on the first Chern-number measurement in a non-electronic system. It starts with an introduction to the Hofstadter model, which describes the dynamics of charged particles on a square lattice subjected... more...

#### Bayesian Methods for Repeated Measures

CRC Press 2015; US$ 64.95Analyze Repeated Measures Studies Using Bayesian Techniques Going beyond standard non-Bayesian books, Bayesian Methods for Repeated Measures presents the main ideas for the analysis of repeated measures and associated designs from a Bayesian viewpoint. It describes many inferential methods for analyzing repeated measures in various scientific... more...

#### Dynamics Near Quantum Criticality in Two Space Dimensions

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 82.67This work addresses dynamical aspects of quantum criticality in two space dimensions. It probes two energy scales: the amplitude (Higgs) mode, which describes fluctuations of the order parameter amplitude in the broken symmetry phase and the dual vortex superfluid stiffness. The results demonstrate that the amplitude mode can be probed arbitrarily... more...

#### Efficient Quadrature Rules for Illumination Integrals

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2015; US$ 36.00Rendering photorealistic images is a costly process which can take up to several days in the case of high quality images. In most cases, the task of sampling the incident radiance function to evaluate the illumination integral is responsible for an important share of the computation time. Therefore, to reach acceptable rendering times, the illumination... more...

#### Non-equilibrium Dynamics of One-Dimensional Bose Gases

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 102.75This work presents a series of experiments with ultracold one-dimensional Bose gases, which establish said gases as an ideal model system for exploring a wide range of non-equilibrium phenomena. With the help of newly developed tools, like full distributions functions and phase correlation functions, the book reveals the emergence of thermal-like transient... more...
