Field Theory of Non-Equilibrium Systems

The physics of non-equilibrium many-body platforms is likely one of the such a lot swiftly increasing components of theoretical physics. normally utilized in the research of laser physics and superconducting kinetics, those innovations have extra lately came across functions within the examine of dynamics of chilly atomic gases, mesoscopic and nano-mechanical structures.

The Quantum World

Quantum physics has, at the one hand, greatly replaced our theoretical description of the actual international and has, however, revolutionized way of life, by means of permitting us to construct lasers, atomic clocks utilized in GPS, and semiconductor-based units reminiscent of desktop pcs and smartphones. the item of this e-book is to provide a self-contained creation to either facets.

Lectures on the Mathematics of Quantum Mechanics I (Atlantis Studies in Mathematical Physics: Theory and Applications)

The 1st quantity (General thought) differs from such a lot textbooks because it emphasizes the mathematical constitution and mathematical rigor, whereas being tailored to the educating the 1st semester of a sophisticated path in Quantum Mechanics (the content material of the e-book are the lectures of classes truly added.

Introduction to Quantum Theory

Given that its emergence within the early 20th century, quantum thought has develop into the elemental actual paradigm, and is vital to our knowing of the realm. offering a deeper knowing of the microscopic international via quantum idea, this supplementary textual content reports a much broader diversity of issues than traditional textbooks.
