Quantum Theory

  • High-Fidelity Quantum Logic in Ca+by Christopher J. Ballance

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 102.75

    This thesis describes experimental work in the field of trapped-ion quantum computation. It outlines the theory of Raman interactions, examines the various sources of error in two-qubit gates, and describes in detail experimental explorations of the sources of infidelity in implementations of single- and two-qubit gates. Lastly, it presents an experimental... more...

  • Statistical Methods for Data Analysis in Particle Physicsby Luca Lista

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 70.86

    This concise set of course-based notes provides the reader with the main concepts and tools needed to perform statistical analyses of experimental data, in particular in the field of high-energy physics (HEP). First, the book provides an introduction to probability theory and basic statistics, mainly intended as a refresher from readers’ advanced... more...

  • The Quantum Astrologer's Handbookby Michael Brooks

    Scribe Publications Pty Ltd 2017; US$ 20.99

    A book of science like no other, about a scientist like no other. This is a landmark in science writing. It resurrects from the vaults of neglect the polymath Jerome Cardano, a Milanese of the sixteenth century. Who is he? A gambler and blasphemer, inventor and chancer, plagued by demons and anxieties, astrologer to kings, emperors and popes. This... more...

  • Quantum Symmetriesby Uwe Franz; Guillaume Aubrun; Adam Skalski; Roland Speicher

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 35.42

    Providing an introduction to current research topics in functional analysis and its applications to quantum physics, this book presents three lectures surveying recent progress and open problems.  A special focus is given to the role of symmetry in non-commutative probability, in the theory of quantum groups, and in quantum physics. The first lecture... more...

  • Lattice QCD Study for the Relation Between Confinement and Chiral Symmetry Breakingby Takahiro Doi

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 82.67

    This thesis focuses on an unresolved problem in particle and nuclear physics: the relation between two important non-perturbative phenomena in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) – quark confinement and chiral symmetry breaking. The author develops a new analysis method in the lattice QCD, and derives a number of analytical formulae to express the order... more...

  • Formulation of Statistical Mechanics Based on Thermal Pure Quantum Statesby Sho Sugiura

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 82.67

    This thesis introduces the concept of "thermal pure quantum (TPQ) states", which are pure quantum states in equilibrium. The author establishes a new formulation of statistical mechanics based on the TPQ states. This formulation allows us to obtain not only mechanical variables but also thermodynamic variables such as entropy and free energy from... more...

  • Circuit Cavity QED with Macroscopic Solid-State Spin Ensemblesby Stefan Putz

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 102.75

    This thesis combines quantum electrical engineering with electron spin resonance, with an emphasis on unraveling emerging collective spin phenomena. The presented experiments, with first demonstrations of the cavity protection effect, spectral hole burning and bistability in microwave photonics, cover new ground in the field of hybrid quantum systems.... more...

  • Searching for New Physics in b → sℓ+ℓ− Transitions at the LHCb Experimentby Luca Pescatore

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 102.75

    This thesis presents two analyses of semileptonic b → sl+l− decays using Flavour Changing Neutral Currents (FCNCs) to test for the presence of new physics and lepton flavour universality, and the equality of couplings for different leptons, which on the basis of experimental evidence is assumed to hold in the Standard Model, free from uncertainties... more...

  • Routledge Revivals: Science as a Questioning Process (1996)by Nigel Sanitt

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 110.00

    First published in 1996, Science as a Questioning Process evaluates scientific theories through from Darwinian evolution to relativity, and from quantum theory to cosmology. It offers an examination of these theories, in terms of a compromise between resolvable empirical questions, and theoretical questions left unresolved. The book asks questions... more...

  • The Origin of Massby John Iliopoulos

    OUP Oxford 2017; US$ 22.99

    The Origin of Mass is a guided tour of cosmic evolution, from tiny fractions of a second after the Big Bang to the elementary particles that we study in our accelerators today. The guiding principle of this book is a concept of symmetry which, in a profound and fascinating way, seems to determine the structure of the Universe. more...
