Intermediate Statistical Mechanics by Jayanta Bhattacharjee,Dhruba Banerjee

By Jayanta Bhattacharjee,Dhruba Banerjee

In this new textbook, a few strange purposes are mentioned as well as the standard themes coated in a path on Statistical Physics. Examples are: statistical mechanics of powders, Peierls instability, graphene, Bose-Einstein condensates in a catch, Casimir impact and the quantum corridor influence. Superfluidity and super-conductivity (including the physics of high-temperature superconductors) have additionally been mentioned extensively.

The emphasis at the remedy of those issues is pedagogic, introducing the elemental tenets of statistical mechanics, with huge and thorough dialogue of the postulates, ensembles, and the correct facts. Many typical examples illustrate the microcanonical, canonical and grand canonical ensembles, in addition to the Bose-Einstein and Fermi-Dirac statistics.

A detailed characteristic of this article is the precise presentation of the idea of second-order part transitions and the renormalization team, emphasizing the position of ailment. Non-equilibrium statistical physics is brought through the Boltzmann delivery equation. extra themes lined right here comprise metastability, glassy structures, the Langevin equation, Brownian movement, and the Fokker-Planck equation.

Graduate scholars will locate the presentation effectively obtainable, because the subject matters were taken care of with good deal of care and a focus to detail.

Field Theory of Non-Equilibrium Systems

The physics of non-equilibrium many-body structures is likely one of the such a lot quickly increasing components of theoretical physics. ordinarily utilized in the research of laser physics and superconducting kinetics, those innovations have extra lately chanced on purposes within the research of dynamics of chilly atomic gases, mesoscopic and nano-mechanical platforms.

The Quantum World

Quantum physics has, at the one hand, significantly replaced our theoretical description of the actual global and has, nonetheless, revolutionized lifestyle, by way of permitting us to construct lasers, atomic clocks utilized in GPS, and semiconductor-based units resembling machine desktops and smartphones. the item of this publication is to provide a self-contained creation to either elements.

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

The 1st quantity (General conception) differs from so much textbooks because it emphasizes the mathematical constitution and mathematical rigor, whereas being tailored to the instructing the 1st semester of a sophisticated direction in Quantum Mechanics (the content material of the publication are the lectures of classes really added.

Introduction to Quantum Theory

On account that its emergence within the early 20th century, quantum concept has develop into the basic actual paradigm, and is vital to our figuring out of the realm. supplying a deeper realizing of the microscopic global via quantum conception, this supplementary textual content studies a much broader variety of issues than traditional textbooks.
