By Christopher Mudry

the purpose of this ebook is to introduce a graduate pupil to chose innovations in condensed subject physics for which the language of box conception is ideal. The examples thought of during this ebook are these of superfluidity for weakly interacting bosons, collinear magnetism, and superconductivity. Quantum section transitions also are taken care of within the context of quantum dissipative junctions and interacting fermions restricted to one-dimensional place house. the fashion of presentation is adequately special and accomplished that it simply presumes familiarity with undergraduate physics.Contents:

  • Bosons:

    • The Harmonic Crystal
    • Bogoliubov thought of a Dilute Bose Gas
    • Non-Linear-Sigma Models
    • Kosterlitz–Thouless Transition

  • Fermions:

    • Non-Interacting Fermions
    • Jellium version for Electrons in a Solid
    • Superconductivity within the Mean-Field and Random-Phase Approximations
    • A unmarried Dissipative Josephson Junction
    • Abelian Bosonization in Two-Dimensional house and Time

Readership: Graduate scholars and researchers drawn to box idea in condensed subject physics.
Key Features:

  • The booklet teaches very important strategies in physics in an in depth and self-contained method utilizing a contemporary language (quantum box idea) that's compact, dependent, and regular in current research
  • The ebook introduces quantum box conception by way of deriving vital techniques in condensed topic physics

Path Integrals in Quantum Mechanics, Statistics, Polymer Physics, and Financial Markets

This can be the 5th, elevated variation of the great textbook released in 1990 at the conception and functions of course integrals. it's the first publication to explicitly resolve course integrals of a large choice of nontrivial quantum-mechanical structures, specifically the hydrogen atom. The options were made attainable via significant advances.

Quantum Mind: The Edge Between Physics and Psychology (Deep Democracy Classics Series)

Arnold Mindell is the founding father of a brand new tuition of remedy referred to as Process-Oriented Psychology and is understood in the course of the international for his leading edge synthesis of goals, bodywork, Jungian remedy, crew approach, attention stories, shamanism, quantum physics, and small and big team clash answer.

Finite Quantum Electrodynamics: The Causal Approach, Third Edition (Dover Books on Physics)

During this vintage textual content for complicated undergraduates and graduate scholars of physics, writer Günter Scharf rigorously analyzes the position of causality in quantum electrodynamics. His procedure bargains complete proofs and precise calculations of scattering techniques in a mathematically rigorous demeanour. This 3rd version includes Scharf's revisions and corrections plus a short new Epilogue on gauge invariance of quantum electrodynamics to all orders.

Quantum Stochastics (Cambridge Series in Statistical and Probabilistic Mathematics)

The classical chance conception initiated by way of Kolmogorov and its quantum counterpart, pioneered through von Neumann, have been created at concerning the similar time within the Nineteen Thirties, yet improvement of the quantum thought has trailed a ways at the back of. even supposing hugely beautiful, the quantum concept has a steep studying curve, requiring instruments from either chance and research and a facility for combining the 2 viewpoints.
