Title:Relativity and Gravitation [electronic resource] : 100 Years after Einstein in Prague
Author(s): Ji Bik
Tom Ledvinka
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:In early April 1911 Albert Einstein arrived in Prague to become full professor of theoretical physics at the German part of Charles University. It was there, for the first time, that he concentrated primarily on the problem ofgravitation. Before he l eft Prague in July 1912 he had submitted the paper Relativitt und Gravitation: Erwiderung auf eine Bemerkung von M. Abraham in which he remarkably anticipated what a future theory of gravity should looklike. At the occasion of the Einstein-in-Prague cente nary an international meeting was organized under a title inspired by Einstein's last paper from the Prague period: Relativity and Gravitation, 100 Years after Einstein inPrague. The main topics of the conference included: classical relativity, numerical relativity, relativistic astrophysics and cosmology, quantum gravity, experimental aspects of gravitation, and conceptual and historical issues. Theconference attracted over 200 scientists from 31 countries, among them a number of leading experts in the f ield of general relativity and its applications. This volume includes abstracts of the plenary talks and full texts ofcontributed talks and articles based on the posters presented at the conference. These describe primarily original results of the authors . Full texts of the plenary talks are included in the volume General Relativity, Cosmology andAstrophysics--Perspectives 100 Years after Einstein in Prague, eds. J. Bik and T. Ledvinka, published also by Springer Verlag

Title:Quantum Physics of Light and Matter [electronic resource] : A Modern Introduction to Photons, Atoms and Many-Body Systems
Author(s): Luca Salasnich
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The book gives an introduction to the field quantization (second quantization) of light and matter with applications to atomic physics. The first chapter briefly reviews the origins of special relativity and quantum mechanics andthe basic notions of quantum information theory and quantum statistical mechanics. The second chapter is devoted to the second quantization of the electromagnetic field, while the third chapter shows the consequences of the light fieldquantization in the description of electr omagnetic transitions.In the fourth chapter it is analyzed the spin of the electron, and in particular its derivation from the Dirac equation, while the fifth chapter investigates the effects ofexternal electric and magnetic fields on the atomic spectra ( Stark and Zeeman effects). The sixth chapter describes the properties of systems composed by many interacting identical particles by introducing the Hartree-Fock variationalmethod, the density functional theory, and the Born-Oppenheimer approximation. Fin ally, in the seventh chapter it is explained the second quantization of the non-relativistic matter field, i.e. the Schrdinger field, which gives apowerful tool for the investigation of many-body problems and also atomic quantum optics. At the end of each chapter there are several solved problems which can help the students to put into practice the things they learned

Title:Quantum Potential: Physics, Geometry and Algebra [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ignazio Licata
Davide Fiscaletti
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Recently the interest in Bohm realist interpretation of quantum mechanics has grown. The important advantage of this approach lies in the possibility to introduce non-locality ab initio, and not as an unexpected host. Inthis bookthe authors give a de tailed analysis of quantum potential, the non-locality term and its role in quantum cosmology and information. The different approaches to the quantum potential are analysed, starting from the originalattempt to introduce a realism of particles trajectori es (influenced by de Broglies pilot wave) to the recent dynamic interpretation provided by Goldstein, Durr, Tumulka and Zangh, and the geometrodynamic picture, with suggestionabout quantum gravity. Finally we focus on the algebraic reading of Hiley and Bi rkbeck school, that analyse the meaning of the non-local structure of the world, bringing important consequences for the space, time and informationconcepts

Title:Theory of Gravitational Interactions [electronic resource]
Author(s): Maurizio Gasperini
Date:2013
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This reference textbook is an up-to-date and self-contained introduction to the theory of gravitational interactions. The first part of the book follows the traditional presentation of general relativity as a geometric theory ofthe macroscopic gravit ational field. A second, advanced part then discusses the deep analogies (and differences) between a geometric theory of gravity and the gauge theories of the other fundamental interactions. This fills a gap whichis present in the context of the tradition al approach to general relativity, and which usually makes students puzzled about the role of gravity. The necessary notions of differential geometry are reduced to the minimum, leaving moreroom for those aspects of gravitational physics of current phenom enological and theoretical interest, such as the properties of gravitational waves, the gravitational interactions of spinors, and the supersymmetric andhigher-dimensional generalization of the Einstein equations. Theory of Gravitational Interactions will be of particular value to undergraduate students pursuing a theoretical or astroparticle curriculum. It can also be used by thoseteaching related subjects, by PhD students and young researchers working in different scientific sectors but wishing to enlar ge their spectrum of interests, and, in general, by all scholars interested in the modern aspects and problemsof gravitational interaction

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Expanding on the concept of the authors previous book ElectroweakProcesses in External Electromagnetic Fields, this new book systematically describes the investigation methods for the effects of external active media,both strong electromagnetic field s and hot dense plasma, in quantum processes. Solving the solar neutrino puzzle in a unique experiment conducted with the help of the heavy-waterdetector at the Sudbery Neutrino Observatory, alongwith another neutrino experiments, brings to the fore elect roweak physics in anactive external medium. It is effectively demonstrated that processes of neutrino interactions with active media of astrophysical objects may lead, undersome physical conditions, to such interesting effects as neutrino-driven shockwave revival in a supernova explosion, acherry stone shooting mechanism for pulsar natal kick, and aneutrino pulsar. It is also shown how poorestimates of particledispersion in external active media sometimes lead to confusion. Thebook will appeal to graduate and post-graduate students of theoreticalphysics with a prior understanding of Quantum Field Theory (QFT) andthe Standard Model of Electroweak Interactions, as well asto specialists in QFT who want to know more about the problems ofquantum phenomena in h ot dense plasma and external electromagnetic fields

Note:It has often been claimed that without drastic conceptual innovations a genuine explanation of quantum interference effects and quantum randomness is impossible. This book concerns Bohmian mechanics, a simple particle theory thatis a counterexample t o such claims. The gentle introduction and other contributions collected here show how the phenomena of non-relativistic quantum mechanics, from Heisenberg's uncertainty principle to non-commuting observables,emerge from the Bohmian motion of particles, t he natural particle motion associated with Schrdinger's equation. This book will be of value to all students and researchers in physics with an interest in the meaning of quantum theoryas well as to philosophers of science

Title:Quantum Plasmadynamics [electronic resource] : Magnetized Plasmas
Author(s): Donald Melrose
Date:2013
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:The covariant (4-tensor) theory for relativistic quantum plasmas presented in the first volume is generalized to magnetized plasma in this second volume. The firstfour chapters areconcerned with classical theory, includingcovariant forms of cold-plas ma, MHD and kinetic theory and the theory of gyromagnetic emission. The response 4-tensor for an arbitrary distribution is evaluated, using both the forward-scattering and Vlasov methods, applied to arelativistic thermal distribution and used to discuss w ave dispersion in relativistic magnetized plasmas. In the second half of the book, solutions of Dirac's equation for a magnetized electron are used to develop a magnetizedversion of QED. This form of QED is applied to gyromagnetic processes, the response of the magnetized vacuum and the response of a magnetized electron gas. The theory has a potentially wide range of applications, such as super-strongmagnetic fields in pulsars, high-powered lasers and spin-dependence in a laboratory electron gas

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Topological insulatorsare insulating in the bulk, but process metallic states around its boundary owing to the topological origin of the band structure. The metallic edge or surface states are immune to weak disorder orimpurities, and robust against the deformation of the system geometry. This book, Topological insulators, presents a unified description of topological insulators from one to three dimensions based on the modified Dirac equation. Aseries of solutions of the bound states near the bounda ry are derived, and the existing conditions of these solutions are described. Topological invariants and their applications to a variety of systems from one-dimensionalpolyacetalene, to two-dimensional quantum spin Hall effect and p-wave superconductors, and three-dimensional topological insulators and superconductors or superfluids are introduced, helping readers to better understand thisfascinating new field. This book is intended for researchers and graduate students working in the field of topological insulators and related areas. Shun-Qing Shen is a Professor at the Department of Physics, the University of HongKong, China

Title:Wave Equations in Higher Dimensions [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Higher dimensional theories have attracted much attention because they make it possible to reduce much of physics in a concise, elegant fashion that unifies the two great theories of the 20th century: Quantum Theory andRelativity. This book provides an elementary description of quantum wave equations in higher dimensions at an advanced level so as to put all current mathematical and physical concepts and techniques at the readers disposal. Acomprehensive description of quantum wave equations in highe r dimensions and their broad range of applications in quantum mechanics is provided, which complements the traditional coverage found in the existing quantum mechanicstextbooks and gives scientists a fresh outlook on quantum systems in all branches of phy sics. In Parts I and II the basic properties of the SO(n) group are reviewed and basic theories and techniques related to wave equations in higherdimensions are introduced. Parts III and IV cover important quantum systems in the framework of non-relativis tic and relativistic quantum mechanics in terms of the theories presented in Part II. In particular, the Levinson theorem andthe generalized hypervirial theorem in higher dimensions, the Schrdinger equation with position-dependent mass and the Kaluza-Klei n theory in higher dimensions are investigated. In this context, the dependence of the energy levels onthe dimension is shown. Finally, Part V contains conclusions, outlooks and an extensive bibliography

Author(s): Roger Boudet
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book continues the fundamental work of Arnold Sommerfeld and David Hestenes formulating theoretical physics in terms of Minkowski space-time geometry. We see how the standard matrix version of the Dirac equation can bereformulated in terms of a real space-time algebra, thus revealing a geometric meaning for the number i in quantum mechanics. Next, it is examined in some detail how electroweak theory can be integrated into the Dirac theory andthis way interpreted in terms of space-time geometry. Finally, some implications for quantum electrodynamics are considered.The presentation of real quantum electromagnetism is expressed in an addendum. The book covers both the use ofthe complex and the real languages and allows the reader acquainted with th e first language to make a step by step translation to the second one

Title:Relativistic Many-Body Theory [electronic resource] : A New Field-Theoretical Approach
Author(s): Ingvar Lindgren
Date:2011
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:Relativistic Many-Body Theory treats for the first time the combination of relativistic atomic many-body theory with quantum-electrodynamics (QED) in a unified manner. This book can be regarded as a continuation of thebook by Lindgren and Morrison, Atomic Many-Body Theory (Springer 1986), which deals with the non-relativistic theory of many-electron systems, describing several means of treating the electron correlation to essentially all orders ofperturbation theory. The treatment of the present bo ok is based upon quantum-field theory, and demonstrates that when the procedure is carried to all orders of perturbation theory, two-particle systems are fully compatible with therelativistically covariant Bethe-Salpeter equation. This procedure can be ap plied to arbitrary open-shell systems, in analogy with the standard many-body theory, and it is also applicable to systems with more than two particles.Presently existing theoretical procedures for treating atomic systems are, in several cases, insufficie nt to explain the accurate experimental data recently obtained, particularly for highly charged ions. This shortcoming is expectedto be due to omission of combined QED-correlational effects, included in the new unified procedure. All methods treated in Re lativistic Many-Body Theory are illustrated with numerical examples. The main text is divided into threeparts. In Part I, the standard time-independent and time-dependent perturbation procedures are reviewed. Part II describes three methods for QED calcul ations, a) the standard S-matrix formulation, b) the Two-times Greens-functionmethod, developed by the St Petersburg Atomic Theory group, and c) the Covariant-evolution-operator (CEO) method, recently developed by the Gothenburg Atomic Theory group. In Pa rt III, the CEO method is combined with electroncorrelation to arbitrary order to a unified MBPT-QED procedure. In this procedure the electron correlation can be included to high order, and

Note:When one approaches the study of the quantal relativistic theory of the electron, one may be surprised by the gap which lies between the frame of the experiments, i.e. the real geometry of the space and time, and the abstractionof the complex matrice s and spinors formalism employed in the presentation of the theory. This book uses a theory of the electron, introduced by David Hestenes, in which the mathematical language is the same as the one of the geometryof the space and time. Such a language not only allows one to find again the well known results concerning the one-electron atoms theory but furthermore leads easily to the resolution of problems considered for a long time withoutsolution

Title:Precisely Predictable Dirac Observables [electronic resource]
Author(s): Heinz Otto Cordes
Date:2007
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This work presents a Clean Quantum Theory of the Electron, based on Diracs equation. Clean in the sense of a complete mathematical explanation of the well known paradoxes of Diracs theory, and a connection toclassical theory, including the motion of a magnetic moment (spin) in the given field, all for a charged particle (of spin ) moving in a given electromagnetic field. This theory is relativistically covariant, and it may be regardedas a mathematically consistent quantum-mechanical generalization o f the classical motion of such a particle, la Newton and Einstein. Normally, our fields are time-independent, but also discussed is the time-dependent case, whereslightly different features prevail. A Schroedinger particle, such as a light quantum, exper iences a very different (time-dependent) Precise Predictablity of Observables. An attempt is made to compare both cases. There is notthe Heisenberg uncertainty of location and momentum rather, location alone possesses a built-in uncertainty of measurement . Mathematically, our tools consist of the study of a pseudo-differential operator (i.e. an observable)under conjugation with the Dirac propagator: such an operator has a symbol approximately propagating along classical orbits, while taking its spin along . This is correct only if the operator is precisely predictable, thatis, it must approximately commute with the Dirac Hamiltonian, and, in a sense, will preserve the subspaces of electronic and positronic states of the underlying Hilbert space. Audience: Theoretical Physicists, specifically in QuantumMechanics. Mathematicians, in the fields of Analysis, Spectral Theory of Self-adjoint differential operators, and Elementary Theory of Pseudo-Differential Operators

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents a unified approach to modern relativistic theory of the electronic structure of atoms and molecules which will provide experimental and theoretical scientists and graduate students with a range of powerfulcomputational tools for a growing range of physical, chemical, technological and biochemical applications. Starting from its foundations in quantum electrodynamics, the book contains a careful account of relativistic atomic andmolecular structure based on Dirac's relativistic Hami ltonian, and the numerical algorithms implemented by modern computer programs. The relativistic atomic structure code GRASP, which can compute atomic energy levels, radiativetransition rates and other atomic properties using the multiconfigurational Dirac -Hartree-Fock or relativistic configuration interaction methods, is reviewed along with the relativistic R-matrix code DARC, which is used for the highprecision modelling of the interactions of atoms and ions with photons and electrons. The recently devel oped BERTHA relativistic molecular structure code, the first to exploit fully the symmetry properties of Dirac 4-component spinors,provides a new resource for studying the properties of molecules, atomic clusters and other materials, especially those cont aining heavy elements for which a relativistic model is essential

Title:Isodual Theory of Antimatter [electronic resource] : with applications to Antigravity, Grand Unification and Cosmology

Note:Antimatter, already conjectured by A. Schuster in 1898, was actually predicted by P.A.M. Dirac in the late 19-twenties in the negative-energy solutions of the Dirac equation. Its existence was subsequently confirmed via theWilson chamber and became a n established part of theoretical physics. Dirac soon discovered that particles with negative energy do not behave in a physically conventional manner, and he therefore developed his hole theory. Thisrestricted the study of antimatter to the sole level of second quantization. As a result antimatter created a scientific imbalance, because matter was treated at all levels of study, while antimatter was treated only at the level ofsecond quantization. In search of a new mathematics for the resolution of this imbalance the author conceived what we know today as Santillis isodual mathematics, which permitted the construction of isodual classical mechanics,isodual quantization and isodual quantum mechanics. The scope of this monograph is to show that our classi cal, quantum and cosmological knowledge of antimatter is at its beginning with much yet to be discovered, and that a commitmentto antimatter by experimentalists will be invaluable to antimatter science

Title:Atomic Spectroscopy: Introduction to the Theory of Hyperfine Structure [electronic resource]
Author(s): Anatoli Andreev
Date:2006
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Atomic Spectroscopy provides a comprehensive discussion on the general approach to the theory of atomic spectra, based on the use of the Lagrangian canonical formalism. This approach is developed and applied to explain thehydrogenic hyperfine structu re associated with the nucleus motion, its finite mass, and spin. The non-relativistic or relativistic, spin or spin-free particle approximations can be used as a starting point of general approach. Thespecial attention is paid to the theory of Lamb shift formation. The formulae for hydrogenic spectrum including the account of Lamb shift are written in simple analytical form. The book is of interest to specialists, graduate andpostgraduate students, who are involved into the experimental and theoretical r esearch in the field of modern atomic spectroscopy

Note:The widely used theoretical models for calculating properties of hot dense matter are studied in this book. Calculations using the presented formulas and algorithms are illustrated by plots, tables, and also are compared withexperimental results. The purpose is to help understanding atomic physics in hot plasma and in developing efficient and robust computer codes for calculating opacity and equations of state for arbitrary material in a wide range oftemperatures and densities. Key features: - compli cated problems of atomic physics are clearly presented - most parts of the book are accessible to students - models are reduced to formulas and algorithms - emphasis on computationalaspects of the models, in particular on the computation of opacity and th e equations of state for high-temperature plasmas

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Advanced Quantum Mechanics, the second volume on quantum mechanics by Franz Schwabl, discusses nonrelativistic multi-particle systems, relativistic wave equations and relativistic fields. Characteristic of Schwabls work, thisvolume features a compell ing mathematical presentation in which all intermediate steps are derived and where numerous examples for application and exercises help the reader to gain a thorough working knowledge of the subject. Thetreatment of relativistic wave equations and their symmetries and the fundamentals of quantum field theory lay the foundations for advanced studies in solid-state physics, nuclear and elementary particle physics. This text extends andcomplements Schwabls introductory Quantum Mechanics, which covers nonrel ativistic quantum mechanics and offers a short treatment of the quantization of the radiation field. New material has been added to this third edition ofAdvanced Quantum Mechanics on Bose gases, the Lorentz covariance of the Dirac equation, and the hole t heory in the chapter Physical Interpretation of the Solutions to the Dirac Equation.

Title:Advanced Visual Quantum Mechanics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Bernd Thaller
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:Advanced Visual Quantum Mechanics is a systematic effort to investigate and to teach quantum mechanics with the aid of computer-generated animations. It is a self-contained textbook that combines selected topics from atomicphysics (spherical symmetry , the hydrogen atom, and particles with spin) with an introduction to quantum information theory (qubits, EPR paradox, teleportation, quantum computers). It explores relativistic quantum mechanics and thestrange behavior of Dirac equation solutions. A ser ies of appendices covers important topics from perturbation and scattering theory. The book places an emphasis on ideas and concepts, with a fair to moderate amount of mathematicalrigor. Though this book stands alone, it can also be paired with Thaller Vi sual Quantum Mechanics to form a comprehensive course in quantum mechanics. The software for the first book earned the European Academic Software Award 2000 foroutstanding innovation in its field
