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:From Special Relativity to Feynman Diagrams [electronic resource] : A Course of Theoretical Particle Physics for Beginners
Author(s): Riccardo D'Auria
Mario Trigiante
Date:2012
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This books aims at filling a gap between the basics courses of classical and quantum mechanics and advanced courses of (relativistic) quantum mechanics and field theory. Particular emphasis is given to the role of symmetry inmodern theoretical physic s. For this reason this book is particularly suited to those students who are interested in a deeper knowledge of modern developments in elementary particle physics and relativity, even if they choose not tospecialize in this branch of research. This targ et of readers includes, besides experimental and applied physicists, also those engineers who need advanced notions of theoretical high energy physics, in view of future research activityin the field theory approach to condensed matter, in accelerator phy sics and in all those modern technology sectors which require a more advanced and sophisticated theoretical physics background. Courses motivated by these objectivesare present in several polytechnic institutes around the world. The last chapters of this book, in particular, are of particular importance to those engineers who plan to work in high energy physics research centres, like LHC at CERN,or to collaborate to experiments on the revelation of gravitational waves. As far as engineering is concerned, it is important to stress that elementary Special and General Relativity courses are often absent in their curricula

Victor Yarzhemsky
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The aim of this book is to present highly accurate and extensive theoretical Atomic data and to give a survey of selected calculational methods for atomic physics, used to obtain these data. The book presents the results ofcalculations of cross secti ons and probabilities of a broad variety of atomic processes with participation of photons and electrons, namely on photoabsorption, electron scattering and accompanying effects. Included are data forphotoabsorption and electron scattering cross-sections and probabilities of vacancy decay formed for a large number of atoms and ions. Attention is also given to photoionization and vacancy decay in endohedrals and to positron-atomscattering. The book is richly illustrated. The methods used are one-electron H artree-Fock and the technique of Feynman diagrams that permits to include many-electron correlations. This is done in the frames of the Random Phaseapproximation with exchange and the many-body perturbation theory. Newly obtained and previously collected atomic data are presented. The atomic data are useful for investigating the electronic structure and physical processes insolids and liquids, molecules and clusters, astronomical objects, solar and planet atmospheres and atomic nucleus. Deep understanding of chemical reactions and processes is reached by deep and accurate knowledge of atomic structure andprocesses with participation of atoms. This book is useful for theorists performing research in different domains of contemporary physics, chemistry and biology, technologists working on production of new materials and forexperimentalists performing research in the field of photon and electron interaction with atoms, molecules, solid bodies and liquids

Title:An Invitation to Quantum Field Theory [electronic resource]
Author(s): Luis Alvarez-Gaum
Miguel A Vzquez-Mozo
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides an introduction to Quantum Field Theory (QFT) at an elementary levelwith only special relativity, electromagnetism and quantum mechanics as prerequisites. For this fresh approach to teaching QFT, based onnumerous lectures and cours es given by the authors, a representative sample of topics has been selected containing some of the more innovative, challenging or subtle concepts. They are presented with a minimum of technical details, thediscussion of the main ideas being more importa nt than the presentation of the typically very technical mathematical details necessary to obtain the final results. Special attention is given to the realization of symmetries inparticle physics: global and local symmetries, explicit, spontaneously broke n, and anomalous continuous symmetries, as well as discrete symmetries. Beyond providing an overview of the standard model of the strong, weak andelectromagnetic interactions and the current understanding of the origin of mass, the text enumerates the gen eral features of renormalization theory as well as providing a cursory description of effective field theories and the problemof naturalness in physics. Among the more advanced topics the reader will find are an outline of the first principles derivation of the CPT theorem and the spin-statistics connection. As indicated by the title, the main aim of thistext is to motivate the reader to study QFT by providing a self-contained and approachable introduction to the most exciting and challenging aspects of t his successful theoretical framework

Title:Topics and Methods in Condensed Matter Theory [electronic resource] : From Basic Quantum Mechanics to the Frontiers of Research
Author(s): Michele Cini
Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides material for courses in theoretical physics for undergraduate and graduate students specializing in condensed matter, including experimentalists who want a thorough theoretical background the advanced partshould be of interest to r esearch workers too. A good first course in quantum mechanics is assumed. Here a variety of many-body phenomena in condensed matter are discussed, with special attention paid to the understanding of strongcorrelation effects. This requires a variety of th eoretical tools (diagram expansions, groups, recursion methods and more). The text, which arose naturally from teaching, is eminently readable and the mathematical treatments areexplained in enough detail to be followed easily. Proofs of all the relevant theorems are provided, but the main emphasis is always on the physical meaning or applicability of the results. Many examples are provided for illustrationand also serve as worked problems

Date:2006
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:These notes are designed as a guide-line for a course in Elementary Particle Physics for undergraduate students. The purpose is providing a rigorous and self-contained presentation of the theoretical framework and of thephenomenological aspects of th e physics of interactions among fundamental constituents of matter. The first part of the volume is devoted to the description of scattering processes in the context of relativistic quantum field theory.The use of the semi-classical approximation allows u s to illustrate the relevant computation techniques in a reasonably small amount of space. Our approach to relativistic processes is original in many respects. The second partcontains a detailed description of the construction of the standard model of ele ctroweak interactions, with special attention to the mechanism of particle mass generation. The extension of the standard model to include neutrino massesis also described. We have included a number of detailed computations of cross sections and decay rat es of pedagogical and phenomenological relevance
