Title:Symmetries in Fundamental Physics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Kurt Sundermeyer
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Over the course of the last century it has become clear that both elementary particle physics and relativity theories are based on the notion of symmetries. These symmetries become manifest in that the laws of nature areinvariant under spacetime tran sformations and/or gauge transformations. The consequences of these symmetries were analyzed as early as in 1918 by Emmy Noether on the level of action functionals. Her work did not receive due recognitionfor nearly half a century, but can today be unders tood as a recurring theme in classical mechanics, electrodynamics and special relativity, Yang-Mills type quantum field theories, and in general relativity. As a matter of fact, asshown in this monograph, many aspects of physics can be derived solely from symmetry considerations. This substantiates the statement of E.P. Wigner ... if we knew all the laws of nature, or the ultimate Law of nature, the invarianceproperties of these laws would not furnish us new information. Thanks to Wigner we now also under stand the implications of quantum physics and symmetry considerations: Poincare invariance dictates both the characteristic propertiesof particles (mass, spin, ...) and the wave equations of spin 0, 1/2, 1, ... objects. Further, the work of C.N. Yang and R. Mills reveals the consequences of internal symmetries as exemplified in the symmetry group of elementaryparticle physics. Given this pivotal role of symmetries it is thus not surprising that current research in fundamental physics is to a great degree motivated and inspired by considerations of symmetry. The treatment of symmetries inthis monograph ranges from classical physics to now well-established theories of fundamental interactions, to the latest research on unified theories and quantum gravity

Title:Basic Concepts in Physics [electronic resource] : From the Cosmos to Quarks
Author(s): Masud Chaichian
Hugo Perez Rojas
Anca Tureanu
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Basic Concepts in Physics: From the Cosmos to Quarks is the outcome of the authors' long and varied teaching experience in different countries and for different audiences, and gives an accessible and eminently readableintroduction to all the main ide as of modern physics. The books fresh approach, using a novel combination of historical and conceptual viewpoints, makes it ideal complementary reading to more standard textbooks. The first fivechapters are devoted to classical physics, from planetary mot ion to special relativity, always keeping in mind its relevance to questions of contemporary interest. The next six chapters deal mainly with newer developments in physics,from quantum theory and general relativity to grand unified theories, and the book concludes by discussing the role of physics in living systems. A basic grounding in mathematics is required of the reader, but technicalities areavoided as far as possible thus complex calculations are omitted so long as the essential ideas remain clear. The book is addressed to undergraduate and graduate students in physics and will also be appreciated by many professionalphysicists. It will likewise beof interest to students, researchers and teachers of other natural sciences, as well as to engineers, h igh-school teachers and the curious general reader, who will come to understand what physics isabout and how it describes the different phenomena of Nature. Not only will readers of this book learn much about physics, they will also learn to love it.

Note:The book describes Maxwell's equations first in their integral, directly testable form, then moves on to their local formulation. The first two chapters cover all essential properties of Maxwell's equations, including theirsymmetries and their covari ance in a modern notation. Chapter 3 is devoted to Maxwell theory as a classical field theory and to solutions of the wave equation. Chapter 4 deals with important applications of Maxwell theory. It includestopical subjects such as metamaterials with nega tive refraction index and solutions of Helmholtz' equation in paraxial approximation relevant for the description of laser beams. Chapter 5 describes non-Abelian gauge theories from aclassical, geometric point of view, in analogy to Maxwell theory as a pr ototype, and culminates in an application to the U(2) theory relevant for electroweak interactions. The last chapter 6 gives a concise summary of semi-Riemanniangeometry as the framework for the classical field theory of gravitation. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the Schwarzschild solution of Einstein's equations and the classical tests of general relativity (perihelion precessionof Mercury, and light deflection by the sun). ------ Textbook features: detailed figures, worked examples, problem s and solutions, boxed inserts, highlighted special topics, highlighted important math etc., helpful summaries, appendix,index

Title:From the Universe to the Elementary Particles [electronic resource] : A First Introduction to Cosmology and the Fundamental Interactions
Author(s): Ulrich Ellwanger
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Mechanics is one of the oldest and at the same time newest disciplines, in the sense that there are methods and principles developed first in mechanics but now widely used in almost all branches of physics: electrodynamics,quantum mechanics, classica l and quantum field theory, special and general theory of relativity, etc. More than that, there are some formalisms like Lagrangian and Hamiltonian approaches, which represent the key stone for thedevelopment of the above-mentioned disciplines. During th e last 20-25 years, classical mechanics has undergone an important revival associated with the progress in non-linear dynamics, applications of Noethers theorem and theextension of variational principles in various interdisciplinary sciences (for instance , magnetofluid dynamics). Thus, there ought to exist a book concerned with the applied analytical formalism, first developed in the frame oftheoretical mechanics, which has proved to be one of the most efficient tools of investigation in the entire arena of science. The present book is an outcome of the authors teaching experience over many years in different countriesand for different students studying diverse fields of physics. The book is intended for students at the level of undergraduate and graduate studies in physics, engineering, astronomy, applied mathematics and for researchers working inrelated subjects. We hope that the original presentation and the distribution of the topics, the various applications in many branches of physics and the set of more than 100 proposed problems, shall make this book a comprehensiveand useful tool for students and researchers

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

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
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:This book deals with diffraction radiation, which implies the boundary problems of electromagnetic radiation theory. Diffraction radiation is generated when a charged particle moves in a vacuum near a target edge. Diffractionradiation of non-relativi stic particles is widely used to design intense emitters in the cm wavelength range. Diffraction radiation from relativistic charged particles is important for noninvasive beam diagnostics and design of freeelectron lasers based on Smith-Purcell radiation which is diffraction radiation from periodic structures. Different analytical models of diffraction radiation and results of recent experimental studies are presented in this book. Thebook may also serve as guide to classical electrodynamics applications in beam physics and electrodynamics. It can be of great use for young researchers to develop skills and for experienced scientists to obtain new results

Note:Formalism of classical mechanics underlies a number of powerful mathematical methods that are widely used in theoretical and mathematical physics. This book considers the basics facts of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, aswell as related topics, such as canonical transformations, integral invariants, potential motion in geometric setting, symmetries, the Noether theorem and systems with constraints. While in some cases the formalism is developed beyondthe traditional level adopted in the standar d textbooks on classical mechanics, only elementary mathematical methods are used in the exposition of the material. The mathematical constructions involved are explicitly described andexplained, so the book can be a good starting point for the undergradu ate student new to this field. At the same time and where possible, intuitive motivations are replaced by explicit proofs and direct computations, preserving thelevel of rigor that makes the book useful for the graduate students intending to work in one o f the branches of the vast field of theoretical physics. To illustrate how classical-mechanics formalism works in other branches oftheoretical physics, examples related to electrodynamics, as well as to relativistic and quantum mechanics, are included

In this book, plasma kinetic theory isdeveloped in a covari ant (4-tensor) notation, which facilitates generalizations to include all relativistic and electromagnetic effects. Relativistic quantum effects are included by using quantum electrodynamics (QED) to calculate theplasma response 4-tenors. The effects of t he plasma are included in QED by replacing the photon propagator in vacuo by that in the medium, such that the poles of this propagator correspond to the natural wave modes of the medium

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The monograph is devoted to the systematic presentation of the so called dressing method for solving differential equations (both linear and nonlinear) of mathematical physics. The essence of the dressing method consists in ageneration of new non-tri vial solutions of a given equation from (maybe trivial) solution of the same or related equation. The Moutard and Darboux transformations discovered in XIX century as applied to linear equations, the Bcklundtransformation in differential geometry of surfa ces, the factorization method, the Riemann-Hilbert problem in the form proposed by Shabat and Zakharov for soliton equations and its extension in terms of the d-bar formalism comprise themain objects of the book. Throughout the text, a generally sufficien t linear experience of readers is exploited, with a special attention to the algebraic aspects of the main mathematical constructions and to practical rules ofobtaining new solutions. Various linear equations of classical and quantum mechanics are solved by the Darboux and factorization methods. An extension of the classical Darboux transformations to nonlinear equations in 1+1 and 2+1dimensions, as well as its factorization are discussed in detail. The applicability of the local and non-local Riemann-Hil bert problem-based approach and its generalization in terms of the d-bar method are illustrated on variousnonlinear equations

Note:Electromagnetic & Optical Pulse Propagation presents a systematic treatment of the radiation and propagation of transient electromagnetic and optical wave fields (such as those used in ultrawideband radar and communicationssysyems as well as in ultra short pulsed optics) through causal, locally linear media which exhibit both temporal dispersion and absorption. Volume I presents a detailed, rigorous development of the fundamental theory of both time andfrequency-domain electromagnetics, beginning with the classical Maxwell-Lorentz theory of microscopic electromagnetic fields and ist invariance in the special theory of relativity, the correlation of the microscopic and macroscopicfields, and the angular spectrum representation of pulsed radiation field s in causally dispersive media. The theory provides a rigorous framework for applied research treating temporally pulsed wave fields in dielectric, conducting andsemiconducting materials.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Based on the method of canonical transformation of variables and the classical perturbation theory, this innovative book treats the systematic theory of symplectic mappings for Hamiltonian systems and its application to the studyof the dynamics and c haos of various physical problems described by Hamiltonian systems. It develops a new, mathematically-rigorous method to construct symplectic mappings which replaces the dynamics of continuous Hamiltonian systemsby the discrete ones. Applications of the m apping methods encompass the chaos theory in non-twist and non-smooth dynamical systems, the structure and chaotic transport in the stochastic layer, the magnetic field lines in magneticallyconfinement devices of plasmas, ray dynamics in waveguides, etc. The book is intended for postgraduate students and researches, physicists and astronomers working in the areas of plasma physics, hydrodynamics, celestial mechanics,dynamical astronomy, and accelerator physics. It should also be useful for applied mathema ticians involved in analytical and numerical studies of dynamical systems

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

Title:Relativistic Dynamics of a Charged Sphere [electronic resource] : Updating the Lorentz-Abraham Model
Author(s): Arthur Yaghjian
Date:2006
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This is a remarkable book. [] A fresh and novel approach to old problems and to their solution. Fritz Rohrlich, Professor Emeritus of Physics, Syracuse University This book takes a fresh, systematic approach todetermining the equation of motion for t he classical model of the electron introduced by Lorentz more than 100 years ago. The original derivations of Lorentz, Abraham, Poincar and Schott are modified and generalized for the chargedinsulator model of the electron to obtain an equation of motion consistent with causal solutions to the Maxwell-Lorentz equations and the equations of special relativity. The solutions to the resulting equation of motion are free ofpre-acceleration and runaway behavior. Binding forces and a total stressmomentumenergy tensor are derived for the charged insulator model. Appendices provide simplified derivations of the self-force and power at arbitraryvelocity. In this Second Edition, the method used for eliminating the noncausal pre-acceleration from the equation of mot ion has been generalized to eliminate pre-deceleration as well. The generalized method is applied to obtain thecausal solution to the equation of motion of a charge accelerating in a uniform electric field for a finite time interval. Alternative derivatio ns of the Landau-Lifshitz approximation are given as well as necessary and sufficientconditions for the Landau-Lifshitz approximation to be an accurate solution to the exact Lorentz-Abraham-Dirac equation of motion. The book is a valuable resource for stu dents and researchers in physics, engineering, and the history ofscience

Note:This book offers a modern updated review on the most important activities in today dynamical systems and statistical mechanics by some of the best experts in the domain. It gives a contemporary and pedagogical view on theories ofclassical and quantum chaos and complexity in hamiltonian and ergodic systems and their applications to anomalous transport in fluids, plasmas, oceans and atom-optic devices and to control of chaotic transport. The book is issued fromlecture notes of the International Summer School on Chaotic Dynamics and Transport in Classical and Quantum Systems held in Cargse (Corsica) 18th to the 30th August 2003. It reflects the spirit of the School to provide lecturesat the post-doctoral level on basic concepts and tools. The first part concerns ergodicity and mixing, complexity and entropy functions, SRB measures, fractal dimensions and bifurcations in hamiltonian systems. Then, models ofdynamical evolutions of transport processes in classical and quantum systems have been largely expl ained. The second part concerns transport in fluids, plasmas and reacting media. On the other hand, new experiments of cold opticallytrapped atoms and electrodynamics cavity have been thoroughly presented. Finally, several papers bear on synchronism and c ontrol of chaos. The target audience of the proceedings are physicists, mathematicians and all scientistsinvolved in Chaos and Dynamical Systems Theory and their fundamental applications in Physics and in the Science of Complex and Nonlinear phenomena

Title:Vavilov-Cherenkov and Synchrotron Radiation [electronic resource] : Foundations and Applications
Author(s): G. N Afanasiev
Date:2005
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The theory of the Vavilov-Cherenkov radiation observed by Cherenkov in 1934 was created by Tamm, Frank and Ginsburg who associated the observed blue light with the uniform charge motion of a charge at a velocity greater than thevelocity of light in t he medium. On the other hand, Vavilov, Cherenkov's teacher, attributed the observed blue light to the deceleration of electrons. This has given rise to the appearance of papers in which the radiation of a chargeuniformly moving in a finite space interval was related to the Bremsstrahlung arising at the end points of the motion interval. This monograph is intended for students of the third year and higher, for postgraduates, for professionalscientists (both experimentalists and theoreticians) dealing with Vavilov-Cherenkov and synchrotron radiation. An acquaintance with the three volumes of the Landau and Lifshitz course (Quantum Mechanics, Classical Field Theory andMacroscopic Electrodynamics) is sufficient for understanding the text
