Title: | Scattering Amplitudes in Gauge Theories [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Johannes M Henn Jan C Plefka |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | At the fundamental level, the interactions of elementary particles are described by quantum gauge field theory. The quantitative implications of these interactions are captured by scattering amplitudes, traditionally computedusing Feynman diagrams. I n the past decade tremendous progress has been made in our understanding of and computational abilities with regard to scattering amplitudes in gauge theories, going beyond the traditional textbook approach.These advances build upon on-shell methods that focus on the analytic structure of the amplitudes, as well as on their recently discovered hidden symmetries. In fact, when expressed in suitable variables the amplitudes are much simplerthan anticipated and hidden patterns emerge. These modern methods a re of increasing importance in phenomenological applications arising from the need for high-precision predictions for the experiments carried out at the Large HadronCollider, as well as in foundational mathematical physics studies on the S-matrix in quant um field theory. Bridging the gap between introductory courses on quantum field theory and state-of-the-art research, these concise yetself-contained and course-tested lecture notes are well-suited for a one-semester graduate level course or as a self-st udy guide for anyone interested in fundamental aspects of quantum field theory and its applications. The numerousexercises and solutions included will help readers to embrace and apply the material presented in the main text |

Title: | Renormalization Group Analysis of Equilibrium and Non-equilibrium Charged Systems [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Evgeny Barkhudarov |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This thesis has two parts, each based on an application of the renormalization-group (RG). The first part is an analysis of the d-dimensional Coulomb gas. The goal was to determine if the Wilson RG could provide input intoparticle-in-cell simulations in plasma physics, which are the main family of simulation methods used in this field. The role of the RG was to identify the effect of coarse-graining on the coupling constants as a function of thecut-offs. The RG calculation reproduced established resu lts, but in a more concise form, and showed the effect of the cut-offs on the Debye screening length. The main part of the thesis is the application of the dynamic RG toturbulence in magnetohydrodynamics. After transformation to Elsasser variables, which is a symmetrisation of the original equations, the solution is presented as a functional integral, which includes stirring forces, their conjugatesand functional Jacobian. The coarse-graining of the functional integral is represented as a diagrammatic exp ansion, followed by rescaling, and casting the results into differential equations for the analysis of RG trajectories.Detailed comparisons are made with the Navier-Stokes limit and with previous calculations for MHD |

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 |

Title: | Non-minimal Higgs Inflation and Frame Dependence in Cosmology [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Christian Friedrich Steinwachs |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This thesis explores the idea that the Higgs boson of the Standard Model and the cosmological inflaton are just two manifestations of one and the same scalar field - the Higgs-inflaton. By this unification two energy scales thatare separated by many orders of magnitude are connected, thereby building a bridge between particle physics and cosmology. An essential ingredient for making this model consistent with observational data is a strong non-minimalcoupling to gravity. Predictions for the value of the Higgs mass as well as for cosmological parameters are derived, and can be tested by future experiments. The results become especially exciting in the light of the recently announceddiscovery of the Higgs boson. The model of non-minimal Higgs inflation is also used in a quantum cosmological context to predict initial conditions for inflation. These results can in turn be tested by the detection of primordialgravitational waves. Thepresentation includesall introductory material about cosmology and the S tandard Model that is essential forthe further understanding. It also provides an introduction to the mathematical methods used tocalculate the effective action by heat kernel methods |

Note: | This volume presents, for the very first time, an exhaustive collection of those modern numerical methods specifically tailored for the analysis of Strongly Correlated Systems. Many novel materials, with functional propertiesemerging from macroscopic quantum behaviors at the frontier of modern research in physics, chemistry and material science, belong to this class of systems. Any technique is presented in great detail by its own inventor or by one of theworld-wide recognized main contributors. The exposition has a clear pedagogical cut and fully reports on the most relevant case study where the specific technique showed to be very successful in describing and enlightening the puzzlingphysics of a particular strongly correlated system. The book is i ntended for advanced graduate students and post-docs in the field as textbook and/or main reference, but also for other researchers in the field who appreciate consultinga single, but comprehensive, source or wishes to get acquainted, in a as painless as possible way, with the working details of a specific technique |

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: | There is significant interest in the Philosophy of Science community to understand the role that effective theories have in the work of forefront science. The ideas of effective theories have been implicit in science for along time, but have only bee n articulated well in the last few decades. Since Wilson's renormalization group revolution in the early 1970's, the science community has come to more fully understand its power, and by the mid-1990's ithad gained its apotheosis. It is still one of the m ost powerful concepts in science, which has direct impact in how one thinks about and formulates theories of nature. It is this power that this Brief sets out to emphasize throughhistorical analysis and current examples |

Note: | Pseudochaotic Kicked Oscillators: Renormalization, Symbolic Dynamics, and Transport presents recent developments in pseudochaos, which is concerned with complex branching behaviors of dynamical systems at the interfacebetween orderly and chaotic moti on. Pseudochaos is characterized by the trapping of orbits in the vicinity of self-similar hierarchies of islands of stability, producing phase-space displacements which increase asymptotically as apower of time. This monograph is a thorough, self-contain ed investigation of a simple one-dimensional model (a kicked harmonic oscillator) which exhibits pseudochaos in its purest form. It is intended for graduate students andresearchers in physics and applied mathematics, as well as specialists in nonlinear dy namics. Dr. John H.

Note: | In this book, the author leads the reader, step by step and without any advanced mathematics, to a clear understanding of the foundations of modern elementary particle physics and cosmology. He also addresses current andcontroversial questions on top ics such as string theory. The book containsgentle introductions to the theories of special and general relativity, and also classical and quantum field theory. The essential aspects of these conceptsare understood with the help of simple calculations for example, the force of gravity as a consequence of the curvature of the space-time. Also treated are the Big Bang, dark matter and dark energy, as well as the presently knowninteractions of elementary particles: electrodynamics, the strong and the weak in teractions including the Higgs boson. Finally, the book sketches as yet speculative theories: Grand Unification theories, supersymmetry, string theory andthe idea of additional dimensions of space-time. Since no higher mathematical or physics expertise is required, the book is also suitable for college and university students at the beginning of their studies. Hobby astronomers andother science enthusiasts seeking a deeper insight than can be found in popular treatments will also appreciate this unique bo ok |

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: | The production of heavy quarks in high-energy experiments offers a rich field to study, both experimentally and theoretically. Due to the additional quark mass, the description of these processes in the framework of perturbativeQCD is much more deman ding than it is for those involving only massless partons. In the last two decades, a large amount of precision data has been collected by the deep inelastic HERA experiment. In order to make full use of thesedata, a more precise theoretical description o f charm quark production in deep inelastic scattering is needed. This work deals with the first calculation of fixed moments of the NNLO heavy flavor corrections to the proton structurefunction F2 in the limit of a small charm-quark mass. The correct trea tment of these terms will allow not only a more precise analysis of the HERA data, but starting from there also a more precise determination of the partondistribution functions and the strong coupling constant, which is an essential input for LHC physics. The complexity of this calculation requires the application and development of technical and mathematical methods, which are alsoexplained here in detail |

Note: | During a century, from the Van der Waals mean field description (1874) of gases to the introduction of renormalization group (RG techniques 1970), thermodynamics and statistical physics were just unable to account for theincredible universality which was observed in numerous critical phenomena. The great success of RG techniques is not only to solve perfectly this challenge of critical behaviour in thermal transitions but to introduce extremely usefultools in a wide field of daily situations where a system exhibits scale invariance. The introduction of scaling, scale invariance and universality concepts has been a significant turn in modern physics and more generally in naturalsciences. Since then, a new physics of scaling laws and critical exponents , rooted in scaling approaches, allows quantitative descriptions of numerous phenomena, ranging from phase transitions to earthquakes, polymer conformations,heartbeat rhythm, diffusion, interface growth and roughening, DNA sequence, dynamical systems, cha os and turbulence. The chapters are jointly written by an experimentalist and a theorist. This book aims at a pedagogical overview,offering to the students and researchers a thorough conceptual background and a simple account of a wide range of applicatio ns. It presents a complete tour of both the formal advances and experimental results associated with the notionof scaling, in physics, chemistry and biology |

Note: | Casimir effects serve as primary examples of directly observable manifestations of the nontrivial properties of quantum fields, and as such are attracting increasing interest from quantum field theorists, particle physicists, andcosmologists. Further more, though very weak except at short distances, Casimir forces are universal in the sense that all material objects are subject to them. They are thus also an increasingly important part of the physics ofatom-surface interactions, while in nanotechnolog y they are being investigated not only as contributors to stiction but also as potential mechanisms for actuating micro-electromechanical devices. While the field of Casimirphysics is expanding rapidly, it has reached a level of maturity in some importan t respects: on the experimental side, where most sources of imprecision in force measurements have been identified as well as on the theoretical side,where, for example, semi-analytical and numerical methods for the computation of Casimir forces between b odies of arbitrary shape have been successfully developed. This book is, then, a timely and comprehensive guide to the essence ofCasimir (and Casimir-Polder) physics that will have lasting value, serving the dual purpose of an introduction and reference t o the field. While this volume is not intended to be a unified textbook, but rather a collection of largelyindependent chapters written by prominent experts in the field, the detailed and carefully written articles adopt a style that should appeal to non- specialist researchers in the field as well as to a broader audience of graduatestudents |

Note: | Some major developments of physics in the last three decades are addressed by highly qualified specialists in different specific fields. They include renormalization problems in QFT, vacuum energy fluctuations and the Casimireffect in different confi gurations, and a wealth of applications. A number of closely related issues are also considered. The cosmological applications of these theories play a crucial role and are at the very heart of the book inparticular, the possibility to explain in a unifie d way the whole history of the evolution of the Universe: from primordial inflation to the present day accelerated expansion. Further, a description of the mathematical backgroundunderlying many of the physical theories considered above is provided. This includes the uses of zeta functions in physics, as in the regularization problems in QFT already mentioned, specifically in curved space-time, and in Casimirproblems as |

Note: | Modern techniques from quantum field theory are applied in this work to the description of ultracold quantum gases. This leads to a unified description of many phenomena including superfluidity for bosons and fermions, classicaland quantum phase tran sitions, different dimensions, thermodynamic properties and few-body phenomena as bound state formation or the Efimov effect. The non-perturbative treatment with renormalization group flow equations can accountfor all known limiting cases by solving one s ingle equation. It improves previous results quantitatively and brings qualitatively new insights. As an example, new quantum phase transitions are found for fermions with three spin states.Ultracold atomic gases can be seen as an interesting model for fe atures of high energy physics and for condensed matter theory. The research reported in this thesis helps to solve the difficult complexity problem in modern theoreticalphysics |

Note: | Aside from the obvious statement that it should be a theory capable of unifying general relativity and quantum field theory, not much is known about the true nature of quantum gravity. New ideas - and there are many of them forthis is an exciting fie ld of research - often diverge to a degree where it seems impossible to decide in which of the many possible direction(s) the ongoing developments should be further sustained. The division of the book in two(overlapping) parts reflects the duality between the physical vision and the mathematical construction. The former is represented by tutorial reviews on non-commutative geometry, on space-time discretization and renormalization and ongauge field path integrals. The latter one by lectures on cohomology, on stochastic geometry and on mathematical tools for the effective action in quantum gravity. The book will benefit everyone working or entering the field of quantumgravity research |

Note: | This book, based on a graduate course given by the authors, is a pedagogic and self-contained introduction to the renormalization group with special emphasis on the functional renormalization group. The functional renormalizationgroup is a modern for mulation of the Wilsonian renormalization group in terms of formally exact functional differential equations for generating functionals. In Part I the reader is introduced to the basic concepts of therenormalization group idea, requiring only basic knowle dge of equilibrium statistical mechanics. More advanced methods, such as diagrammatic perturbation theory, are introduced step by step. Part II then gives a self-containedintroduction to the functional renormalization group. After a careful definition of various types of generating functionals, the renormalization group flow equations for these functionals are derived. This procedure is shown toencompass the traditional method of the mode elimination steps of the Wilsonian renormalization group procedure. Then, approximate solutions of these flow equations using expansions in powers of irreducible vertices or in powers ofderivatives are given. Finally, in Part III the exact hierarchy of functional renormalization group flow equations for the irreducible v ertices is used to study various aspects of non-relativistic fermions, including the so-calledBCS-BEC crossover, thereby making the link to contemporary research topics |

Note: | This book is the third of a three-volume series written by the same author that aims to deliver a comprehensive and self-contained account of the vast field of solid-state physics. It goes far beyond most classic texts in thepresentation of the prope rties of solids and experimentally observed phenomena, along with the basic concepts and theoretical methods used to understand them and the essential features of various experimental techniques. The firstvolume deals with the atomic and magnetic structur e and dynamics of solids, the second with those electronic properties that can be understood in the one-particle approximation, and the third with the effects due to interactions andcorrelations between electrons. In the present volume the electronelectro n interaction is treated first in the HartreeFock approximation. The density-functional theory is introduced to account for correlation effects. Theresponse to external perturbations is discussed in the framework of linear response theory. Landaus Fermi-l iquid theory is followed by the theory of Luttinger liquids. The subsequent chapters are devoted to electronic phases withbroken symmetry: to itinerant magnetism, to spin- and charge-density waves and their realizations in quasi-one-dimensional materials, as well as to the microscopic theory of superconductivity. An overview is given of the physics ofstrongly correlated systems. The last chapter covers selected problems in the physics of disordered systems. The text provides material for upper-level under graduate and graduate courses. It will also be a valuable reference forresearchers in the field of condensed matter physics |

Note: | Spin wave theory of magnetism and BCS theory of superconductivity are typical theories of the time before renormalization group (RG) theory. The two theories consider atomistic interactions only and ignore the energy degrees offreedom of the continuo us (infinite) solid. Since the pioneering work of Kenneth G. Wilson (Nobel Prize of physics in 1982) we know that the continuous solid is characterized by a particular symmetry: invariance with respect totransformations of the length scale. Associated wit h this symmetry are particular field particles with characteristic excitation spectra. In diamagnetic solids these are the well known Debye bosons. This book reviews experimental workon solid state physics of the last five decades and shows in a phenomeno logical way that the dynamics of ordered magnets and conventional superconductors is controlled by the field particles of the infinite solid and not by magnons andCooper pairs, respectively. In the case of ordered magnets the relevant field particles are called GSW bosons after Goldstone, Salam and Weinberg and in the case of superconductors the relevant field particles are called SC bosons. Onecan imagine these bosons as magnetic density waves or charge density waves, respectively. Crossover from atomist ic exchange interactions to the excitations of the infinite solid occurs because the GSW bosons have generally lowerexcitation energies than the atomistic magnons. According to the principle of relevance the dynamics is governed by the excitations with th e lowest energy. The non relevant atomistic interactions with higher energy are practicallyunimportant for the dynamics |

Note: | While basic features of polarons were well recognized a long time ago and have been described in a number of review papers and textbooks, interest in the role of electron-phonon interactions and polaron dynamics in contemporarymaterials has recently gone through a vigorous revival. Electron-phonon interactions have been shown to be relevant in high-temperature superconductors and colossal magnetoresistance oxides, and transport through nanowires and quantumdots also often depends on vibronic displace ments of ions. The continued interest in polarons extends beyond physical description of advanced materials. The field has been a testing ground for analytical, semi-analytical, and numericaltechniques, such as path integrals, strong-coupling perturbation expansion, advanced variational, exact diagonalization, density-matrix renormalization group, dynamic mean-field, and quantum Monte Carlo techniques. Single andmulti-polaron theories have offered a new insight in our understanding of high-temperature sup erconductivity, colossal magnetoresistance, and the correlated transport through molecular quantum dots. This book reviews some recentdevelopments in the field of polarons, starting with the basics and covering a number of active directions of research |

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' |

Note: | This concise text introduces techniques from quantum mechanics, especially scattering theory, to compute the effects of an external background on a quantum field in general, and on the properties of the quantum vacuum inparticular. This approach can be succesfully used in an increasingly large number of situations, ranging from the study of solitons in field theory and cosmology to the determination of Casimir forces in nano-technology. The methodintroduced and applied in this book is shown to give a n unambiguous connection to perturbation theory, implementing standard renormalization conditions even for non-perturbative backgrounds. It both gives new theoretical insights, forexample illuminating longstanding questions regarding Casimir stresses, and also provides an efficient analytic and numerical tool well suited to practical calculations. Last but not least, it elucidates in a concrete context many ofthe subtleties of quantum field theory, such as divergences, regularization and renormalization, by connecting them to more familiar results in quantum mechanics. While addressed primarily at young researchers entering the field andnonspecialist researchers with backgrounds in theoretical and mathematical physics, introductory chapters on the theoret ical aspects of the method make the book self-contained and thus suitable for advanced graduate students |

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 |

Title: | Turbulence and Diffusion [electronic resource] : Scaling Versus Equations |

Oleg G Bakunin |

Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This book is an introduction to the multidisciplinary field of anomalous diffusion in complex systems, with emphasis on the scaling approach as opposed to techniques based on the quantitative analysis of underlying transportequations. Typical example s of such systems are turbulent plasmas, convective rolls, zonal flow systems and stochastic magnetic fields. From the more methodological point of view, the approach relies on the general use of correlationsestimates, quasilinear equations and continuous time random walk techniques. Yet, the mathematical descriptions are not meant to become a fixed set of recipes but rather develop and strengthen the reader's physical intuition andunderstanding on the underlying mechanisms involved. Most of the material stems from class-tested lectures, where graduate students where assumed to have a working knowledge of classical physics, fluid dynamics and plasma physics butotherwise no prior knowledge of the subject matter is assumed from the side of the reader |

Note: | This book is based on some of the lectures during the Pacific Institute of Theoretical Physics (PITP) summer school on Quantum Magnetism, held during June 2006 in Les Houches, in the French Alps. The school was funded jointlyby NATO, the CNRS, and PI TP, and entirely organized by PITP. Magnetism is a somewhat peculiar research field. It clearly has a quantum-mechanical basis the microsopic exchange interactions arise entirely from the exclusionprinciple, in conjunction with respulsive interactions be tween electrons. And yet until recently the vast majority of magnetism researchers and users of magnetic phenomena around the world paid no attention to these quantum-mechanicalroots. Thus, eg., the huge ($400 billion per annum) industry which manufacture s hard discs, and other components in the information technology sector, depends entirely on room-temperature properties of magnets - yet at the macroscopicor mesoscopic scales of interest to this industry, room-temperature magnets behave entirely classic ally. This situation has now begun to change, and the quantum collective properties of magnetic systems, for so long of interest only toa few, have begun to move to centre stage. There are several reasons for this. One is the increasing use of low tempera tures in industrial and applied research labs, and the recognition that the low-T properties of many new magneticmaterials are of great potential use in future devices. Another is the emergence of nanoscience, and its offshoot nanotechnology, as an import ant new discipline the majority of high-tech applications of nanotechnology so farenvisaged will also be low-temperature ones. All this has meant that collective quantum phenomena, occurring at low T in quantum dots, magnetic molecules, and nanoscopic co nductors, have suddenly become interesting to more than justpure physics researchers.

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.

Note: | The relation between mathematics and physics has a long history, in which the role of number theory and of other more abstract parts of mathematics has recently become more prominent. More than ten years after a first meeting in1989 between number th eorists and physicists at the Centre de Physique des Houches, a second 2-week event focused on the broader interface of number theory, geometry, and physics. This book is the result of that exciting meeting, andcollects, in 2 volumes, extended versions of the lecture courses, followed by shorter texts on special topics, of eminent mathematicians and physicists. The present volume has three parts: Conformal Field Theories, Discrete Groups,Renomalization. The companion volume is subtitled: On Random Matrice s, Zeta Functions and Dynamical Systems (Springer, 3-540-23189-7) |

Note: | This text gives a detailed account of various techniques that are used in the study of dynamics of continuous systems, near as well as far from equilibrium. The analytic methods covered include diagrammatic perturbation theory,various forms of the re normalization group and self-consistent mode coupling. Dynamic critical phenomena near a second order phase transition, phase ordering dynamics, dynamics of surface growth and turbulence form the backbone of thebook. Applications to a wide variety of syst ems (e.g. magnets, ordinary fluids, superfluids) are provided covering diverse transport properties (diffusion, sound). It is unique in that it gives a detailed description of perturbationtheory for nonlinear continuous systems, it focuses on techniques w hich can be applied to problems ranging from near equilibrium dynamics to fully developed turbulence, and it provides a discussion of physical properties (e.g. criticalultrasonics) that are generally not covered in text books. Audience: Beginning graduate students, senior undergraduates, researchers |

Note: | The completely revised new edition of the classical book on Statistical Mechanics covers the basic concepts of equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical physics. In addition to a deductive approach to equilibrium statistics andthermodynamics based on a single hypothesis - the form of the microcanonical density matrix - this book treats the most important elements of non-equilibrium phenomena. Intermediate calculations are presented in complete detail.Problems at the end of each chapter help student s to consolidate their understanding of the material. Beyond the fundamentals, this text demonstrates the breadth of the field and its great variety of applications. Modern areas such asrenormalization group theory, percolation, stochastic equations of mo tion and their applications to critical dynamics, kinetic theories, as well as fundamental considerations of irreversibility, are discussed. The text will be usefulfor advanced students of physics and other natural sciences a basic knowledge of quantum me chanics is presumed |
