Title:An Introduction to Relativistic Processes and the Standard Model of Electroweak Interactions [electronic resource]
Author(s): Carlo M Becchi
Giovanni Ridolfi
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:These lectures are meant to be a reference and handbook for an introductory course in Theoretical Particle Physics, suitable for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students. Their purpose is to reconcile theoreticalrigour and completeness with a careful analysis of more phenomenological aspects of the physics. They aim at filling the gap between quantum field theory textbooks and purely phenomenological treatments of fundamental interactions. Thefirst part provides an introduction to scatt ering in relativistic quantum field theory. Thanks to an original approach to relativistic processes, the relevant computational techniques are derived cleanly and simply in thesemi-classical approximation. The second part contains a detailed presentation of the gauge theory of electroweak interactions with particular focus to the processes of greatest phenomenological interest. The main novelties of thepresent second edition are a more complete discussion of relativistic scattering theory and an expansio n of the study of the corrections to the semi-classical approximation, including important processes in LHC physics. The extensionof the standard model to include neutrino masses and oscillations is also discussed, and updated with new results

Title:Towards the Mathematics of Quantum Field Theory [electronic resource]
Author(s): Frdric Paugam
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The aim of this book is to introduce mathematicians (and, in particular, graduate students) to the mathematical methods of theoretical and experimental quantum field theory, with an emphasis on coordinate-free presentations of themathematical objects in play. This should in turn promote interaction between mathematicians and physicists by supplying a common and flexible language for the good of both communities, even if the mathematical one is the primarytarget. This reference work provides a coheren t and complete mathematical toolbox for classical and quantum field theory, based on categorical and homotopical methods, representing an original contribution to the literature. The firstpart of the book introduces the mathematical methods needed to work with the physicists' spaces of fields, including parameterized and functional differential geometry, functorial analysis, and the homotopical geometric theory ofnon-linear partial differential equations, with applications to general gauge theories. The s econd part presents a large family of examples of classical field theories, both from experimental and theoretical physics, while the thirdpart provides an introduction to quantum field theory, presents various renormalization methods, and discusses the q uantization of factorization algebras. The book is primarily intended for pure mathematicians (and in particulargraduate students) who would like to learn about the mathematics of quantum field theory

Note:The study of quantum fluids, stimulated by the discovery of superfluidity in liquid helium, has experienced renewed interest after the observation of Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) in ultra-cold atomic gases and the observationa new type of quantum fluid with specific characteristics derived from its intrinsic out-of-equilibrium nature. The main objective of this book is to take a snapshot of the state-of-the-art of this fast moving field with a specialemphasis on the hot topics and new trends. Bri nging together the most active specialists of the two areas (atomic and polaritonic quantum fluids), we expect that this book will facilitate the exchange and the collaboration betweenthese two communities working on subjects with very strong analogies

Title:Statistical Approach to Quantum Field Theory [electronic resource] : An Introduction
Author(s): Andreas Wipf
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Over the past few decades the powerful methods of statistical physics and Euclidean quantum field theory have moved closer together, with common tools based on the use of path integrals. The interpretation of Euclidean fieldtheories as particular sys tems of statistical physics has opened up new avenues for understanding strongly coupled quantum systems or quantum field theories at zero or finite temperatures. Accordingly, the first chapters of this bookcontain a self-contained introduction to path in tegrals in Euclidean quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. The resulting high-dimensional integrals can be estimated with the help of Monte Carlo simulations based on Markovprocesses. The most commonly used algorithms are presented in detail so as to prepare the reader for the use of high-performance computers as an experimental tool for this burgeoning field of theoretical physics. Several chaptersare then devoted to an introduction to simple lattice field theories and a variety of spin systems wi th discrete and continuous spins, where the ubiquitous Ising model serves as an ideal guide for introducing the fascinating area ofphase transitions. As an alternative to the lattice formulation of quantum field theories, variants of the flexible renormal ization group methods are discussed in detail. Since, according to our present-day knowledge, all fundamentalinteractions in nature are described by gauge theories, the remaining chapters of the book deal with gauge theories without and with matter. This text is based on course-tested notes for graduate students and, as such, its style isessentially pedagogical, requiring only some basics of mathematics, statistical physics, and quantum field theory. Yet it also contains some more sophisticated concepts w hich may be useful to researchers in the field. Each chapter endswith a number of problems guiding the reader to a deeper understanding of some of the material presented in the main text a

Note:The basic idea, simple and revolutionary at the same time, to replace the concept of a point particle with a one-dimensional string, has opened up a whole new field of research. Even today, four decades later, its multifacetedconsequences are still n ot fully conceivable. Up to now string theory has offered a new way to viewparticles as different excitations of the same fundamental object.It has celebrated success in discovering the graviton in itsspectrum, and it has naturally led scientists to posit space-times with more than four dimensionswhich in turn has triggered numerous interesting developments in fields as varied as condensed matter physics and pure mathematics.This book collects pedagogical lectures by leading experts in string theory, intr oducing the non-specialist reader to some of the newest developments in the field. The carefully selected topics are at the cutting edge of research instring theory and include new developments in topological strings,AdS/CFT dualities, as well as newly em erging subfields such as doubled field theory and holography in the hydrodynamic regime. The contributions to this book have beenselected and arranged in such a way as to form a self-contained, graduate level textbook

Title:An Invitation to Quantum Field Theory [electronic resource]
Author(s): Luis Alvarez-Gaum
Miguel A Vzquez-Mozo

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides an introduction to Quantum Field Theory (QFT) at an elementary levelwith only special relativity, electromagnetism and quantum mechanics as prerequisites. For this fresh approach to teaching QFT, based onnumerous lectures and cours es given by the authors, a representative sample of topics has been selected containing some of the more innovative, challenging or subtle concepts. They are presented with a minimum of technical details, thediscussion of the main ideas being more importa nt than the presentation of the typically very technical mathematical details necessary to obtain the final results. Special attention is given to the realization of symmetries inparticle physics: global and local symmetries, explicit, spontaneously broke n, and anomalous continuous symmetries, as well as discrete symmetries. Beyond providing an overview of the standard model of the strong, weak andelectromagnetic interactions and the current understanding of the origin of mass, the text enumerates the gen eral features of renormalization theory as well as providing a cursory description of effective field theories and the problemof naturalness in physics. Among the more advanced topics the reader will find are an outline of the first principles derivation of the CPT theorem and the spin-statistics connection. As indicated by the title, the main aim of thistext is to motivate the reader to study QFT by providing a self-contained and approachable introduction to the most exciting and challenging aspects of t his successful theoretical framework

Note:Electroweak and Strong Interaction: Phenomenology, Concepts, Models, begins with relativistic quantum mechanics and some quantum field theory which lay the foundation for the rest of the text. The phenomenology and the physics ofthe fundamental inter actions are emphasized through a detailed discussion of the empirical fundamentals of unified theories of strong, electromagnetic, and weak interactions. The principles of local gauge theories are described both ina heuristic and a geometric framework. Th e minimal standard model of the fundamental interactions is developed in detail and characteristic applications are worked out. Possible signals of physics beyond that model, notably in thephysics of neutrinos are also discussed. Among the applications sc attering on nucleons and on nuclei provide salient examples. Numerous exercises with solutions make the text suitable for advanced courses or individual study. Thiscompletely updated revised new edition contains an enlarged chapter on quantum chromodynami cs and a widely updated chapter on neutrino physics

Title:Advanced Quantum Mechanics [electronic resource] : Materials and Photons

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Advanced Quantum Mechanics: Materials and Photons is a textbook which emphasizes the importance of advanced quantum mechanics for materials science and all experimental techniques which employ photon absorption, emission, orscattering. Important aspe cts of introductory quantum mechanics are covered in the first seven chapters to make the subject self-contained and accessible for a wide audience. The textbook can therefore be used for advancedundergraduate courses and introductory graduate courses whi ch are targeted towards students with diverse academic backgrounds from the Natural Sciences or Engineering. To enhance this inclusive aspect of making the subject asaccessible as possible, Appendices A and B also provide introductions to Lagrangian mecha nics and the covariant formulation of electrodynamics. Other special features include an introduction to Lagrangian field theory and an integrateddiscussion of transition amplitudes with discrete or continuous initial or final states. Once students have a cquired an understanding of basic quantum mechanics and classical field theory, canonical field quantization is easy.Furthermore, the integrated discussion of transition amplitudes naturally leads to the notions of transition probabilities, decay rates, a bsorption cross sections and scattering cross sections, which are important for all experimentaltechniques that use photon probes. Quantization is first discussed for the Schrdinger field before the relativistic Maxwell, Klein-Gordon and Dirac fields are quantized. Quantized Schrdinger field theory is not only important forcondensed matter physics and materials science, but also provides the easiest avenue to general field quantization and is therefore also useful for students with an interest in nuclear and particle physics. The quantization of theMaxwell field is performed in Coulomb gauge. This is the appropriate and practically most useful quantization procedure in condensed matter physics, chem

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book addresses the confinement problem, which quite generally deals with the behavior of non-abelian gauge theories, and the force which is mediated by gauge fields, at large distances.The word confinement in thecontext of hadronic physics origi nally referred to the fact that quarks and gluons appear to be trapped inside mesons and baryons, from which they cannot escape. There are other, and possibly deeper meanings that can be attached to theterm, and these will be explored in this book. Althou gh the confinement problem is far from solved, much is now known about the general features of the confining force, and there are a number of very well motivated theories ofconfinement which are under active investigation. This volume gives a both pedagog ical and concise introduction and overview of the main ideas in this field, their attractive features, and, as appropriate, their shortcomings

Title:Geometry of the Fundamental Interactions [electronic resource] : On Riemann's Legacy to High Energy Physics and Cosmology

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Gravitation, electromagnetics and the two types of nuclear forces constitute the four fundamental forces of nature which regulate our everyday life. Amazingly, they are all described by a single idea of the 19th century proposedby Bernhard Riemann, a nd with the exception ofgravitation, these ideas have been since confirmed by high energy experiments and cosmological observations. Geometry of the Fundamental Interactions - On Riemann's Legacy to HighEnergy Physics and Cosmology is a mathematical narra tive of how we have come to agree on such a complex plot of nature, starting with the basic geometrical concepts and ending with hints on the perspective for cosmology. This bookoriginated from lectures given for several years to a mixed audience of mathe maticians, physicists, astronomers, engineers, philosophers and sociologists seeking to understand the basics of those interactions and how the concept ofRiemann curvature came to occupy such a central position in physics. The author takes on the challeng e of making the path toward understanding both accessible and interesting to a wide audience

The thesisattacks major challenges of the field: it proposes and analyzes experimental protocols to create new and interesting states of matter and introduces theoretical techniques to describe probes of these states. The phenomenaconsidered include the fractional quantum Hall effect, spectrosco py of strongly correlated states, and quantum criticality, among others. The thesis also clarifies experiments on disordered quantum solids, which display a variety ofexotic phenomena and are candidates to exhibit so-called supersolidity. It collects expe rimental results and constrains their interpretation through theoretical considerations. This Doctoral Thesis has been accepted by CornellUniversity, Ithaca, USA

Title:Topology, Geometry and Gauge fields [electronic resource] : Interactions
Author(s): Gregory L Naber
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume is intended to carry on the program, initiated in Topology, Geometry, and Gauge Fields: Foundations (Springer, 2010), of exploring the interrelations between particle physics and topology that arise from their sharednotion of a gauge fiel d. The text begins with a synopsis of the geometrical background assumed of the reader (manifolds, Lie groups, bundles, connections, etc.). There follows a lengthy, and somewhat informal discussion of a numberof the most basic of the classical gauge theor ies arising in physics, including classical electromagnetic theory and Dirac monopoles, the Klein-Gordon and Dirac equations and SU(2) Yang-Mills-Higgs theory. The real purpose here is towitness such things as spacetime manifolds, spinor structures, de Rh am cohomology, and Chern classes arise of their own accord in meaningful physics. All of these are then developed rigorously in the remaining chapters. With theprecise definitions in hand, one can, for example, fully identify magnetic charge and instanton number with the Chern numbers of the bundles on which the charge and instanton live, and uncover the obstruction to the existence of aspinor structure in the form of the second Stiefel-Whitney class. This second edition of the book includes, in an Append ix, a much expanded sketch of Seiberg-Witten gauge theory, including a brief discussion of its origins in physicsand its implications for topology. To provide the reader with the opportunity to pause en route and join in the fun, there are 228 exercises, each an integral part of the development and each located at precisely the point at whichit can be solved with optimal benefit. Reviews of first edition: Nabers goal is not to teach a sterile course on geometry and topology, but rather to enable us to see the subject in action, through gauge theory.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This is a book on topology and geometry, and like any book on subjects as vast as these, it has a point of view that guided the selection of topics. The authors point of view is that the rekindled interest that mathematics andphysics have shown in ea ch other of late should be fostered, and that this is best accomplished by allowing them to cohabit. The goal is to weave together rudimentary notions from the classical gauge theories of physics and thetopological and geometrical concepts that became the mathematical models of these notions. The reader is assumed to have a minimal understanding of what an electromagnetic field is, a willingness to accept a few of the more elementarypronouncements of quantum mechanics, and a solid background in real analy sis and linear algebra with some of the vocabulary of modern algebra. To such a reader we offer an excursion that begins with the definition of a topologicalspace and finds its way eventually to the moduli space of anti-self-dual SU(2)-connections on S4 w ith instanton number -1. This second edition of the book includes a new chapter on singular homology theory and a new appendix outliningDonaldsons beautiful application of gauge theory to the topology of compact, simply connected , smooth 4-manifolds with definite intersection form. Reviews of the first edition: It is unusual to find a book so carefully tailoredto the needs of this interdisciplinary area of mathematical physicsNaber combines a deep knowledge of his subject with an excellent informal writi ng style. (NZMS Newsletter) ...this book should be very interesting formathematicians and physicists (as well as other scientists) who are concerned with gauge theories. (ZENTRALBLATT FUER MATHEMATIK) The book is well written and the examples do a great s ervice to the reader. It will be a helpfulcompanion to anyone teaching or studying gauge theory (Mathematical Reviews)

Title:Modern Differential Geometry in Gauge Theories [electronic resource] : YangMills Fields, Volume II

Edition:1
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Differential geometry, in the classical sense, is developed through the theory of smooth manifolds. Modern differential geometry from the authors perspective is used in this work to describe physical theories of a geometriccharacter without using any notion of calculus (smoothness). Instead, an axiomatic treatment of differential geometry is presented via sheaf theory (geometry) and sheaf cohomology (analysis). Using vector sheaves, in place of bundles,based on arbitrary topological spaces, this uniq ue approach in general furthers new perspectives and calculations that generate unexpected potential applications. Modern Differential Geometry in Gauge Theories is a two-volume researchmonograph that systematically applies a sheaf-theoretic approach to s uch physical theories as gauge theory. Beginning with Volume 1, the focus is on Maxwell fields. All the basic concepts of this mathematical approach are formulatedand used thereafter to describe elementary particles, electromagnetism, and geometric prequa ntization. Maxwell fields are fully examined and classified in the language of sheaf theory and sheaf cohomology. Continuing in Volume 2, thissheaf-theoretic approach is applied to YangMills fields in general. The text contains a wealth of detailed and ri gorous computations and will appeal to mathematicians and physicists, along with advanced undergraduate and graduatestudents, interested in applications of differential geometry to physical theories such as general relativity, elementary particle physics and quantum gravity

Note:For more than 70 years, quantum field theory (QFT) can be seen as a driving force in the development of theoretical physics. Equally fascinating is the fruitful impact which QFT had in rather remote areas of mathematics. Thepresent book features some of the different approaches, different physically viewpoints and techniques used to make the notion of quantum field theory more precise. For example, the present book contains a discussion including generalconsiderations, stochastic methods, deformation theory and the holographic AdS/CFT correspondence. It also contains a discussion of more recent developments like the use of category theory and topos theoretic methods to describe QFT.The present volume emerged from the 3rd 'Blaubeuren Workshop: Recent Developments in Quantum Field Theory', held in July 2007 at the Max Planck Institute of Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig/Germany. All of the contributions arecommitted to the idea of this workshop series: 'To bring together outstanding experts worki ng in the field of mathematics and physics to discuss in an open atmosphere the fundamental questions at the frontier of theoretical physics'

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:By definition, gauge theories - among the cornerstones of fundamental theoretical physics - involve more degrees of freedom than required by the underlying physics. The unphysical degrees of freedom must be shown not to yieldunwarranted effects at ev ery step in the formalism where explicit Lorentz covariance is required. The present work presents, in a rigorous way, a consistent formulation for the handling of noncovariant gauges in the quantization andrenormalization of gauge theories. Though the pa th integral method is very convenient for the proof of unitarity and renormalizability of gauge theories, the canonical formalism is eventually necessary to expose the issues in aself-consistent way. These notes are written as an introduction to postgradu ate students, lecturers and researchers in the field and assume prior knowledge of quantum field theory

Note:Feynman path integrals, suggested heuristically by Feynman in the 40s, have become the basis of much of contemporary physics, from non-relativistic quantum mechanics to quantum fields, including gauge fields, gravitation,cosmology. Recently ideas bas ed on Feynman path integrals have also played an important role in areas of mathematics like low-dimensional topology and differential geometry, algebraic geometry, infinite-dimensional analysis andgeometry, and number theory. The 2nd edition of LNM 523 i s based on the two first authors' mathematical approach of this theory presented in its 1st edition in 1976. To take care of the many developments since then, an entire newchapter on the current forefront of research has been added. Except for this new ch apter and the correction of a few misprints, the basic material and presentation of the first edition has been maintained. At the end of each chapterthe reader will also find notes with further bibliographical information

Note:Jacques Bros has greatly advanced our present understanding of rigorous quantum field theory through numerous fundamental contributions. This book arose from an international symposium held in honour of Jacques Bros on theoccasion of his 70th birthda y, at the Department of Theoretical Physics of the CEA in Saclay, France. The impact of the work of Jacques Bros is evident in several articles in this book. Quantum fields are regarded as genuinemathematical objects, whose various properties and relevant physical interpretations must be studied in a well-defined mathematical framework. The key topics in this volume include analytic structures of Quantum Field Theory (QFT),renormalization group methods, gauge QFT, stability properties and extension of the axiomatic framework, QFT on models of curved spacetimes, QFT on noncommutative Minkowski spacetime.

The purpose is providing a rigorous and self-contained presentation of the theoretical framework and of thephenomenological aspects of th e physics of interactions among fundamental constituents of matter. The first part of the volume is devoted to the description of scattering processes in the context of relativistic quantum field theory.The use of the semi-classical approximation allows u s to illustrate the relevant computation techniques in a reasonably small amount of space. Our approach to relativistic processes is original in many respects. The second partcontains a detailed description of the construction of the standard model of ele ctroweak interactions, with special attention to the mechanism of particle mass generation. The extension of the standard model to include neutrino massesis also described. We have included a number of detailed computations of cross sections and decay rat es of pedagogical and phenomenological relevance

Title:Modern Differential Geometry in Gauge Theories [electronic resource] : Maxwell Fields, Volume I
Author(s): Anastasios Mallios
Date:2006
Publisher:Boston, MA : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Differential geometry, in the classical sense, is developed through the theory of smooth manifolds. Modern differential geometry from the authors perspective is used in this work to describe physical theories of a geometriccharacter without using any notion of calculus (smoothness). Instead, an axiomatic treatment of differential geometry is presented via sheaf theory (geometry) and sheaf cohomology (analysis). Using vector sheaves, in place of bundles,based on arbitrary topological spaces, this uniq ue approach in general furthers new perspectives and calculations that generate unexpected potential applications. Modern Differential Geometry in Gauge Theories is a two-volume researchmonograph that systematically applies a sheaf-theoretic approach to s uch physical theories as gauge theory. Beginning with Volume 1, the focus is on Maxwell fields. All the basic concepts of this mathematical approach are formulatedand used thereafter to describe elementary particles, electromagnetism, and geometric prequa ntization. Maxwell fields are fully examined and classified in the language of sheaf theory and sheaf cohomology. Continuing in Volume 2, thissheaf-theoretic approach is applied to YangMills fields in general. The text contains a wealth of detailed and ri gorous computations and will appeal to mathematicians and physicists, along with advanced undergraduate and graduatestudents, interested in applications of differential geometry to physical theories such as general relativity, elementary particle physics and quantum gravity

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Operational Quantum Theory II is a distinguished work on quantum theory at an advanced algebraic level. The classically oriented hierarchy with objects such as particles as the primary focus, and interactions of the objects as thesecondary focus is r eversed with the operational interactions as basic quantum structures. Quantum theory, specifically relativistic quantum field theory is developed the theory of Lie group and Lie algebra operations acting on bothfinite and infinite dimensional vector spac es. This book deals with the operational concepts of relativistic space time, the Lorentz and Poincar group operations and their unitary representations, particularly the elementaryarticles. Also discussed are eigenvalues and invariants for non-compact op erations in general as well as the harmonic analysis of noncompact nonabelian Lie groups and their homogeneous spaces. In addition to the operational formulationof the standard model of particle interactions, an attempt is made to understand the particle spectrum with the masses and coupling constants as the invariants and normalizations of a tangent representation structure of a anhomogeneous space time model. Operational Quantum Theory II aims to understand more deeply on an operational basis what one i s working with in relativistic quantum field theory, but also suggests new solutions to previously unsolvedproblems

Note:Spurred by the current development of numerous large-scale projects for detecting gravitational radiation, with the aim to open a completely new window to the observable Universe, numerical relativity has become a major field ofresearch over the past years. Indeed, numerical relativity is the standard approach when studying potential sources of gravitational waves, where strong fields and relativistic velocities are part of any physical scenario. This bookcan be considered a primer for both graduate students and non-specialist researchers wishing to enter the field. Starting from the most basic insights and aspects of numerical relativity, Elements of Numerical Relativity developscoherent guidelines for the reliable and convenient selection of each o f the following key aspects: evolution formalism, gauge, initial and boundary conditions as well as various numerical algorithms. The tests and applicationsproposed in this book can be performed on a standard PC

Title:Quantum Field Theory [electronic resource] : A Modern Perspective
Author(s): V Parameswaran Nair
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Quantum field theory, which started with Paul Diracs work shortly after the discovery of quantum mechanics, has produced an impressive and important array of results. Quantum electrodynamics, with its extremely accurate andwell-tested predictions, an d the standard model of electroweak and chromodynamic (nuclear) forces are examples of successful theories. Field theory has also been applied to a variety of phenomena in condensed matter physics, includingsuperconductivity, superfluidity and the quantum Hall effect. The concept of the renormalization group has given us a new perspective on field theory in general and on critical phenomena in particular. At this stage, a strong case canbe made that quantum field theory is the mathematical and intellectua l framework for describing and understanding all physical phenomena, except possibly for a quantum theory of gravity. Quantum Field Theory: A Modern Perspectivepresents Professor Nairs view of certain topics in field theory loosely knit together as it gre w out of courses on field theory and particle physics taught at Columbia University and the City College of CUNY. The first few chapters,up to Chapter 12, contain material that generally goes into any course on quantum field theory, although there are a f ew nuances of presentation which readers may find to be different from other books. This first part of the book canbe used for a general course on field theory, omitting, perhaps, the last three sections in Chapter 3, the last two in Chapter 8 and section s 6 and 7 in Chapter 10. The remaining chapters cover some of the more modern developments overthe last three decades, involving topological and geometrical features. The introduction given to the mathematical basis of this part of the discussion is neces sarily brief and should be accompanied by books on the relevantmathematical topics as indicated in the bibliography. Professor Nair also concentrates on developments pertinent to a better understa
