Invariants of Homology 3-Spheres (Encyclopaedia of by Nikolai Saveliev,R.V. Gamkrelidze,A. Vassiiev

By Nikolai Saveliev,R.V. Gamkrelidze,A. Vassiiev

The publication offers a scientific exposition of the various principles and techniques within the zone, from algebraic topology of manifolds to invariants bobbing up from quantum box theories. the most issues coated contain: structures and type of homology 3-spheres, Rokhlin invariant, Casson invariant and its extensions, and Floer homology and gauge-theoretical invariants of homology cobordism. some of the themes coated within the e-book seem in monograph shape for the 1st time. The booklet offers a slightly vast evaluate of principles and techniques and gives a complete bibliography. The textual content might be a invaluable resource for either the graduate pupil and researcher in arithmetic and theoretical physics.

Field Theory of Non-Equilibrium Systems

The physics of non-equilibrium many-body platforms is without doubt one of the so much speedily increasing parts of theoretical physics. regularly utilized in the examine of laser physics and superconducting kinetics, those suggestions have extra lately came across purposes within the learn 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 global and has, nonetheless, revolutionized lifestyle, by means of permitting us to construct lasers, atomic clocks utilized in GPS, and semiconductor-based units equivalent to machine pcs and smartphones. the thing of this e-book is to provide a self-contained creation to either points.

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

The 1st quantity (General conception) 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 complicated direction in Quantum Mechanics (the content material of the booklet are the lectures of classes really introduced.

Introduction to Quantum Theory

Considering that its emergence within the early 20th century, quantum thought has develop into the elemental actual paradigm, and is vital to our realizing of the area. supplying a deeper knowing of the microscopic global via quantum concept, this supplementary textual content studies a much wider variety of themes than traditional textbooks.
