Causal Physics: Photons by Non-Interactions of Waves

Chandrasekhar Roychoudhuri
October 12, 2017

Causal Physics: Photons by Non Interactions of Waves redefines the mathematical Superposition Principle as an operational Superposition Effect; which is the measurable physical transformation experienced by a detector due to stimulations induced by multiple waves simultaneously acting on the...

An Introduction to Quantum Fluids

Phuong Mai Dinh, Jesus Navarro, Eric Suraud
September 22, 2017

What do atomic nuclei, neutron stars, a domestic power supply, and the stunning colors of stained glass in cathedrals all have in common? The answer lies in the unifying concept of quantum fluids, which allows us to understand the behavior and properties of these different systems in simple terms....

An Introduction to Gauge Theories

Nicola Cabibbo, Luciano Maiani, Omar Benhar
July 11, 2017

Written by world-leading experts in particle physics, this new book from Luciano Maiani and Omar Benhar, with contributions from the late Nicola Cabibbo, is based on Feynman’s path integrals. Key elements of gauge theories are described—Feynman diagrams, gauge-fixing, Faddeev-Popov ghosts—as well...

March 29, 2017

Quantum Optics for Engineers provides a transparent and methodical introduction to quantum optics via the Dirac's bra–ket notation with an emphasis on practical applications and basic aspects of quantum mechanics such as Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and Schrodinger's equation. Self-contained...

Quantum Effects in Tribology

Dmitry Nikolaevich Lyubimov, Kirill Nikolaevich Dolgopolov
January 11, 2017

Quantum Effects in Tribology is devoted to the study of quantum foundations of materials friction interaction and evolutionary formation of tribosystem’s operating parameters. At the start of the book, large consideration is given to the analysis of the existing diversity of friction, wear, and...

Introduction to Topological Quantum Matter & Quantum Computation

Tudor D. Stanescu
December 07, 2016

What is "topological" about topological quantum states? How many types of topological quantum phases are there? What is a zero-energy Majorana mode, how can it be realized in a solid state system, and how can it be used as a platform for topological quantum computation? What is quantum computation...
