Mathematical Methods of Many-Body Quantum Field Theory

1st Edition

Detlef Lehmann
September 05, 2019

Mathematical Methods of Many-Body Quantum Field Theory offers a comprehensive, mathematically rigorous treatment of many-body physics. It develops the mathematical tools for describing quantum many-body systems and applies them to the many-electron system. These tools include the formalism of...

Quantum Principles and Particles, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Walter Wilcox
August 27, 2019

This textbook offers a unique introduction to quantum mechanics progressing gradually from elementary quantum mechanics to aspects of particle physics. It presents the microscopic world by analysis of the simplest possible quantum mechanical system (spin 1/2). A special feature is the author’s use...

Waves, Particles and Fields: Introducing Quantum Field Theory

1st Edition

Anthony C. Fischer-Cripps
July 06, 2019

This book fills a gap in the middle ground between quantum mechanics of a single electron to the concept of a quantum field. In doing so, the book is divided into two parts; the first provides the necessary background to quantum theory extending from Planck’s formulation of black body radiation to...

Quantum Mechanics: A Fundamental Approach

1st Edition

K. Kong Wan
June 25, 2019

The mathematical formalism of quantum theory in terms of vectors and operators in infinite-dimensional complex vector spaces is very abstract. The definitions of many mathematical quantities used do not seem to have an intuitive meaning, which makes it difficult to appreciate the mathematical...

Quantum Field Theory: Feynman Path Integrals and Diagrammatic Techniques in Condensed Matter

1st Edition

Lukong Cornelius Fai
June 24, 2019

This book explores quantum field theory using the Feynman functional and diagrammatic techniques as foundations to apply Quantum Field Theory to a broad range of topics in physics. This book will be of interest not only to condensed matter physicists but physicists in a range of disciplines as the...

Dissipative Quantum Mechanics of Nanostructures: Electron Transport, Fluctuations, and Interactions

1st Edition

Andrei D. Zaikin, Dmitry Golubev
May 20, 2019

Continuing miniaturization of electronic devices, together with the quickly growing number of nanotechnological applications, demands a profound understanding of the underlying physics. Most of the fundamental problems of modern condensed matter physics involve various aspects of quantum transport...

Applied Bohmian Mechanics: From Nanoscale Systems to Cosmology

2nd Edition

Xavier Oriols Pladevall, Jordi Mompart
May 16, 2019

Most textbooks explain quantum mechanics as a story where each step follows naturally from the one preceding it. However, the development of quantum mechanics was exactly the opposite. It was a zigzag route, full of personal disputes where scientists were forced to abandon well-established...

Low-Energy Electrons: Fundamentals and Applications

1st Edition
