Title:Atomic Spectroscopy and Radiative Processes [electronic resource]
Author(s): Egidio Landi Degl'Innocenti
Date:2014
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book describes the basic physical principles of atomic spectroscopy and the absorption and emission of radiation in astrophysical and laboratory plasmas. It summarizes the basics of electromagnetism and thermodynamics andthen describes in detail the theory of atomic spectra for complex atoms, with emphasis on astrophysical applications. Both equilibrium and non-equilibrium phenomena in plasmas are considered. The interaction between radiation andmatter is described, together with various types o f radiation (e.g., cyclotron, synchrotron, bremsstrahlung, Compton). The basic theory of polarization is explained, as is the theory of radiative transfer for astrophysicalapplications. Atomic Spectroscopy and Radiative Processes bridges the gap between b asic books on atomic spectroscopy and the very specialized publications for the advanced researcher: it will provide under- and postgraduates with aclear in-depth description of theoretical aspects, supported by practical examples of applications
Contents:General laws of the electromagnetic field
Spectrum and polarisation
Radiation from moving charges

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.

Title:History and Evolution of Concepts in Physics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Harry Varvoglis
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Our understanding ofnature, and in particular of physics and the laws governing it, has changed radically since the days of the ancient Greek natural philosophers. This book explains how and why these changes occurred, throughlandmark experiments as well as theories that - for their time - wererevolutionary. The presentation covers Mechanics, Optics, Electromagnetism, Thermodynamics, Relativity Theory, Atomic Physicsand Quantum Physics. The book placesemphasis on ideas and on a qualitative presentati on, rather than on mathematics and equations. Thus, althoughprimarily addressed to those who are studying or have studied science,it can alsobe read by non-specialists. The authorconcludeswith a discussion ofthe evolution and organization of universities, from ancient times until today, and ofthe organization and dissemination of knowledge through scientific publications and conferences

Title:Principles of Astrophysics [electronic resource] : Using Gravity and Stellar Physics to Explore the Cosmos
Author(s): Charles Keeton
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book gives a survey of astrophysics at the advanced undergraduate level. It originates from a two-semester course sequence at Rutgers University that is meant to appeal not only to astrophysics students but also morebroadly to physics and engine ering students. The organization is driven more by physics than by astronomy in other words, topics are first developed in physics and then applied to astronomical systems that can be investigated,rather than the other way around. The first half of the bo ok focuses on gravity. Gravity is the dominant force in many astronomical systems, so a tremendous amount can be learned by studying gravity, motion and mass. The theme inthis part of the book, as well as throughout astrophysics, is using motion to invest igate mass. The goal of Chapters 2-11 is to develop a progressively richer understanding of gravity as it applies to objects ranging from planets andmoons to galaxies and the universe as a whole. The second half uses other aspects of physics to address on e of the big questions. While Why are we here? lies beyond the realm of physics, a closely related question is withinour reach: How did we get here? The goal of Chapters 12-21 is to understand the physics behind the remarkable story of how the Universe, E arth and life were formed. This book assumes familiarity with vector calculus andintroductory physics (mechanics, electromagnetism, gas physics and atomic physics) however, all of the physics topics are reviewed as they come up (and vital aspects of vecto r calculus are reviewed in the Appendix). This volume isaimed at undergraduate students majoring in astrophysics, physics or engineering

Note:Tutorials on Mssbauer Spectroscopy Since the discovery of the Mssbauer Effect many excellent books have been published for researchers and for doctoral and master level students. However, there appears to be no textbookavailable for final year bachel or students, nor for people working in industry who have received only basic courses in classical mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, chemistry and materials science. The challenge of thisbook is to give an introduction to Mssbauer Spectroscop y for this level. The ultimate goal of this book is to give this audience not only a scientific introduction to the technique, but also to demonstrate in an attractive way thepower of Mssbauer Spectroscopy in many fields of science, in order to create int erest among the readers in joining the community of Mssbauer spectroscopists. This is particularly important at times where in many Mssbauerlaboratories succession is at stake

Title:Special Relativity [electronic resource]
Author(s): Valerio Faraoni
Date:2013
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book offers an essential bridge between college-level introductions and advanced graduate-level books on special relativity. It begins at an elementary level, presenting and discussing the basic concepts normally covered incollege-level works, i ncluding the Lorentz transformation. Subsequent chapters introduce the four-dimensional worldview implied by the Lorentz transformations, mixing time and space coordinates, before continuing on to the formalism oftensors, a topic usually avoided in lower- level courses. The books second half addresses a number of essential points, including the concept of causality the equivalence between mass and energy, including applications relativisticoptics and measurements and matter in Minkowski spacetime. The clos ing chapters focus on the energy-momentum tensor of a continuous distribution of mass-energy and its covariant conservation angular momentum a discussion of thescalar field of perfect fluids and the Maxwell field and general coordinates. Every chapter is supplemented by a section with numerous exercises, allowing readers to practice the theory. These exercises constitute an essential part ofthe textbook, and the solutions to approximately half of them are provided in the appendix

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The theoriesdescribing seemingly unrelated areas of physics have surprising analogies that have arousedthe curiosity of scientists and motivatedefforts toidentify reasons for their existence.Comparative study ofphysical theories has revealed the pres ence of a common topological and geometric structure. The Mathematical Structure of Classical and Relativistic Physicsis the first book to analyzethis structure in depth, thereby exposing therelationship between (a) global physical variables and (b) space and time elements such as points, lines, surfaces, instants, and intervals. Combining this relationship with the inner and outer orientation of space and time allows oneto construct a classification diagram for variables, equations, and other theoretical characteristics. The bookis divided into three parts. The first introduces the framework for the above-mentioned classification, methodicallydevelopingageometric and topologicalformulationapplicable to allphysical laws and properties the second applies t his formulation to a detailed study of particle dynamics, electromagnetism, deformable solids, fluid dynamics,heat conduction, and gravitation. The third part further analyses the general structure of the classification diagram for variables and equations of physical theories. Suitable for a diverse audience of physicists, engineers, andmathematicians, The Mathematical Structure of Classical and Relativistic Physics offers a valuable resource for studying the physical world. Written at alevel accessible t o graduate and advanced undergraduatestudents inmathematical physics, the book can be used as a research monograph across various areas of physics, engineering and mathematics, and as a supplemental text for a broad range of upper-level scientific coursew ork

Title:Thermodynamics of Crystalline States [electronic resource]

Edition:2nd ed. 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:Thermodynamics is a well-established discipline of physics for properties of matter in thermal equilibrium with the surroundings. Applying to crystals, however, the laws encounter undefined properties of crystal lattice, whichtherefore need to be det ermined for a clear and well-defined description of crystalline states. Thermodynamics of Crystalline States explores the roles played by order variables and dynamic lattices in crystals in a wholly new way. Thebook begins by clarifying basic concepts for stable crystals. Next, binary phase transitions are discussed to study collective motion of order variables, as described mostly as classical phenomena. New to this edition is theexamination of magnetic crystals, where magnetic symmetry is essential for magnetic phase transitions. The multi-electron system is also discussed theoretically, as a quantum-mechanical example, for superconductivity in metalliccrystals. Throughout the book, the role played by the lattice is emphasized and studied in-depth. Ther modynamics of Crystalline States is an introductory treatise and textbook on mesoscopic phenomena in solid states, constituting abasic subject in condensed matter physics. While this book serves as a guide for advanced students in physics and material sci ence, it can also be useful as a reference for all professionals in related fields. Minoru Fujimoto is authorof Physics of Classical Electromagnetism (Springer, 2007) and The Physics of Structural Phase Transitions (Springer, 2005)

Title:An Invitation to Quantum Field Theory [electronic resource]

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:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The study of classical electromagnetic fields is an adventure. The theory is complete mathematically and we are able to present it as an example of classical Newtonian experimental and mathematical philosophy. There is a set offoundational experiment s, on which most of the theory is constructed. And then there is the bold theoretical proposal of a field-field interaction from James Clerk Maxwell. This textbook presents the theory of classical fields as amathematical structure based solidly on laborat ory experiments. Here the student is introduced to the beauty of classical field theory as a gem of theoretical physics. To keep the discussion fluid, the history is placed in a beginningchapter and some of the mathematical proofs in the appendices. Chapt ers on Greens Functions and Laplaces Equation and a discussion of Faradays Experiment further deepen the understanding. The chapter on Einsteins relativityis an integral necessity to the text. Finally, chapters on particle motion and waves in a dispersive medium complete the picture. High quality diagrams and detailed end-of-chapter questions enhance the learning experience

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

Note:The Lorenz-Mie theory, describing the interaction between a homogeneous sphere and an electromagnetic plane wave, is likely to be one of the most famous theories in light scattering. But, with the advent of lasers and theirincreasing development in v arious fields, it has become too old-fashioned to meet most of the modern requisites. The book deals with generalized Lorenz-Mie theories when the illuminating beam is an electromagnetic arbitrary shapedbeam, relying on the method of separation of variabl es. A particular emphasis is stressed on the case of the homogeneous sphere but other regular particles are considered too. An extensive discussion of the methods available to theevaluation of beam shape coefficients describing the illuminating beam is pr ovided, and several methods are discussed. Applications concern many fields such as optical particle sizing and, more generally, optical particlecharacterization, morphology-dependent resonances, or mechanical effects of light for optical trapping, optica l tweezers and optical stretchers. Various computer programs relevant to the contents of the book are furthermore provided

Title:Partial Differential Equations I [electronic resource] : Basic Theory
Author(s): Michael E Taylor
Date:2011
Edition:2
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 first of three volumes on partial differential equations, this one introduces basic examples arising in continuum mechanics, electromagnetism, complex analysis and other areas, and develops a number of tools for theirsolution, in particular Fouri er analysis, distribution theory, and Sobolev spaces. These tools are then applied to the treatment of basic problems in linear PDE, including the Laplace equation, heat equation, and wave equation, as wellas more general elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbol ic equations. The book is targeted at graduate students in mathematics and at professional mathematicians with an interest in partial differential equations, mathematical physics,differential geometry, harmonic analysis, and complex analysis. In this seco nd edition, there are seven new sections including Sobolev spaces on rough domains, boundary layer phenomena for the heat equation, the space ofpseudodifferential operators of harmonic oscillator type, and an index formula for elliptic systems of such ope rators. In addition, several other sections have been substantially rewritten, and numerous others polished to reflectinsights obtained through the use of these books over time. Michael E. Taylor is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of North Ca rolina, Chapel Hill, NC. Review of first edition: These volumes will be read by severalgenerations of readers eager to learn the modern theory of partial differential equations of mathematical physics and the analysis in which this theory is rooted.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Drawing examples from mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, economics, medicine, politics, and sports, this book illustrates how nonlinear dynamics plays a vital role in our world. Examples cover a wide rangefrom the spread and possi ble control of communicable diseases, to the lack of predictability in long-range weather forecasting, to competition between political groups and nations. After an introductory chapter that explores what itmeans to be nonlinear, the remainder of Part I c overs nonlinear mathematical concepts such as fixed points, limit cycles, fractals, chaos, bifurcations, and solitons, and nonlinear diagnostic tools such as fixed point analysis,bifurcation diagrams, and Lyapunov exponents, to name a few. Part II of the text presents illustrative examples of nonlinear dynamics that are highly relevant to the contemporary world. At the end of each chapter, a wide variety ofproblems are presented which extend the ideas developed in the chapter as well as allow the reader t o explore other aspects of our nonlinear world. The mathematical level of the text assumes good working knowledge of basic calculus andprior exposure to ordinary differential equations and the wave and diffusion equations. The book may be used at the unde rgraduate or graduate level to prepare science and engineering students for problems in the real world or forself-study by practicing scientists and engineers. The more casual reader can simply read the book for intellectual enjoyment

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The vast majority of particles in particle physics are today considered to be bound states of other particles. All forms of binding energy and kinetic energy in such a state have to be included in its inertial mass. This bookrevives the classical exp lanation for this in the case of electromagnetic interactions. But it is also a reminder of the many benefits of this classical understanding that are simply dropped in modern accounts of inertia. This is abook for the motivated student who feels it is us eful to remember where our theories come from. There is also a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in particle physics

Title:The Physics of Solids [electronic resource] Essentials and Beyond
Author(s): Eleftherios N Economou
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This textbook emphasizes a few fundamental principles and extracts from them a wealth of information. This approach also unifies an enormous and diverse subject which seems to consist of too many disjoint pieces. The book startswith the absolute mini mum of formal tools, emphasizes the basic principles, and employs physical reasoning ( a little thinking and imagination to quote R. Feynman) to obtain results. Continuous comparison with experimental dataleads naturally to a gradual refinement of the con cepts and to more sophisticated methods. After the initial overview with an emphasis on the physical concepts and the derivation of results by dimensional analysis, The Physics ofSolids deals with the Jellium Model (JM) and the Linear Combination of Atomi c Orbitals (LCAO) approaches to solids and introduces the basic concepts and information regarding metals and semiconductors. The remainder, constitutingenrichment and elective material, re-examines the model under more realistic assumptions as well as ne w, more advanced subjects. While prerequisites include quantum mechanics, electromagnetism, and statistical physics, appendicessummarizing these subjects are included to make the book more self-contained. The basic text is enhanced with worked problems, c opious illustrations, chapter-end exercises and summaries. The approach, which emphasizes the underlyingphysical concepts, unifies to some extent a subject that can seem too diverse and consisting of too many disjoint pieces, requires from students less m emorizing of facts and formalisms but more thinking

Date:2010
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:Thermodynamics is a well-established discipline of physics for properties of matter in thermal equilibrium surroundings. Applying to crystals, however, the laws encounter undefined properties of crystal lattices, which thereforeneed to be determined for a clear and well-defined description of crystalline states. Thermodynamics of Crystalline States explores the roles played by order variables and dynamic lattices in crystals in a wholly new way. This book isdivided into three parts. The book begins b y clarifying basic concepts for stable crystals. Next, binary phase transitions are discussed to study collective motion of order variables, as described mostly as classical phenomena. In thethird part, the multi-electron system is discussed theoretically , as a quantum-mechanical example, for the superconducting state in metallic crystals. Throughout the book, the role played by the lattice is emphasized and examinedin-depth. Thermodynamics of Crystalline States is an introductory treatise and textbook on mesoscopic phenomena in solid states, constituting a basic subject in condensed matter physics. While this book serves as an invaluable guidefor advanced students in physics and engineering, it can also be useful as a reference for all professionals in r elated fields. Minoru Fujimoto is author of Physics of Classical Electromagnetism (Springer, 2007) and The Physics ofStructural Phase Transitions (Springer, 2005)

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:In the introduction accelerator-based light sources are considered and a comparison is made between free-electron lasers and conventional quantum lasers. The motion and radiation of relativistic electrons in undulator magnets isdiscussed. The princip le of a low-gain free-electron laser is explained and the pendulum equations are introduced that characterize the electron dynamics in the field of a light wave. The differential equations of the high-gain FEL arederived from the Maxwell equations of elec trodynamics. Analytical and numerical solutions of the FEL equations are presented and important FEL parameters are defined, such as gain length, FEL bandwidth and saturation power. A detailednumerical study of the all-important microbunching process is p resented. The mechanism of Self Amplified Spontaneous Emission is described theoretically and illustrated with numerous experimental results. Three-dimensional effects suchas betatron oscillations and optical diffraction are addressed and their impact on the FEL performance is analyzed. The worlds first soft X-ray FEL, the user facility FLASH at DESY, is described in some detail in order to give animpression of the complexity of such an accelerator-based light source. Finally, the physical and technologic al challenges of X-ray FELs are addressed while some of the more involved calculations are put into the appendices, where alsosupplementary material can be found

Note:Just like the periodical crystalline potential in solid state crystals determines their properties for the conduction of electrons, the periodical structuring of photonic crystals leads to envisioning the possibility of achievinga control of the phot on flux in dielectric and metallic materials. The use of photonic crystals as cages for storing, filtering or guiding light at the wavelength scale paves the way to the realization of optical and optoelectronicdevices with ultimate properties and dimensio ns. This will contribute towards meeting the demands for greater miniaturization imposed by the processing of an ever increasing number of data. Photonic Crystals will provide students andresearchers from different fields with the theoretical background r equired for modelling photonic crystals and their optical properties, while at the same time presenting the large variety of devices, ranging from optics to microwaves,where photonic crystals have found application. As such, it aims at building bridges be tween optics, electromagnetism and solid state physics. Photonic Crystals was written by six specialists of nanophotonics, with the contribution ofa specialist in optical fibres. This second edition was prepared to include the most recent developments of two-dimensional photonic crystal devices, as well as some of the last results reported on metamaterials. The work wascoordinated by Jean-Michel Lourtioz, head of the Institut d'lectronique Fondamentale in Orsay
