Title: | Formulation of Uncertainty Relation Between Error and Disturbance in Quantum Measurement by Using Quantum Estimation Theory [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Yu Watanabe |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | In this thesis, quantum estimation theory is applied to investigate uncertainty relations between error and disturbance in quantum measurement. The author argues that the best solution for clarifying the attainable bound of theerror and disturbance i s to invoke the estimation process from the measurement outcomes such as signals from a photodetector in a quantum optical system. The error and disturbance in terms of the Fisher information content have beensuccessfully formulated and provide the upper bound of the accuracy of the estimation. Moreover, the attainable bound of the error and disturbance in quantum measurement has been derived. The obtained bound is determined for the firsttime by the quantum fluctuations and correlation functions of the o bservables, which characterize the non-classical fluctuation of the observables. The result provides the upper bound of our knowledge obtained by quantum measurements.The method developed in this thesis will be applied to a broad class of problems related to quantum measurement to build a next-generation clock standard and to successfully detect gravitational waves |

Title: | Gravitational Wave Detection and Data Analysis for Pulsar Timing Arrays [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Rutger Haasteren |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Pulsar timing is a promising method for detecting gravitational waves in the nano-Hertz band. In his prize winning Ph.D. thesis Rutger van Haasteren deals with how one takes thousands of seemingly random timing residuals which aremeasured by pulsar o bservers, and extracts information about the presence and character of the gravitational waves in the nano-Hertz band that are washing over our Galaxy. The author presents a sophisticated mathematical algorithm thatdeals with this issue. His algorithm is probably the most well-developed of those that are currently in use in the Pulsar Timing Array community. In chapter 3, the gravitational-wave memory effect is described. This is one of the firstdescriptions of this interesting effect in relation with pul sar timing, which may become observable in future Pulsar Timing Array projects. The last part of the work is dedicated to an effort to combine the European pulsar timing datasets in order to search for gravitational waves. This study has placed the most s tringent limit to date on the intensity of gravitational waves that are produced by pairs of supermassive black holes dancing around each other in distantgalaxies, as well as those that may be produced by vibrating cosmic strings. Rutger van Haasteren has won the 2011 GWIC Thesis Prize of the Gravitational Wave International Community for his innovative work in various directions of thesearch for gravitational waves by pulsar timing. The work is presented in this Ph.D. thesis |

Title: | Advanced Interferometers and the Search for Gravitational Waves [electronic resource] : Lectures from the First VESF School on Advanced Detectors for Gravitational Waves |
Author(s): |
Massimo Bassan |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The search for gravitational radiation with optical interferometers is gaining momentum worldwide. Beside the VIRGO and GEO gravitational wave observatories in Europe and the two LIGOs in the United States, which have operatedsuccessfully during the past decade, further observatories are being completed (KAGRA in Japan) or planned (ILIGO in India). The sensitivity of the current observatories, although spectacular, has not allowed direct discovery ofgravitational waves. The advanced detectors (Advanc ed LIGO and Advanced Virgo), at present in the development phase, will improve sensitivity by a factor of 10, probing the universe up to 200 Mpc for signal from inspiraling binarycompact stars. This book covers all experimental aspects of the search for g ravitational radiation with optical interferometers. Every facet of the technological development underlying the evolution of advanced interferometers isthoroughly described, from configuration to optics and coatings, and from thermal compensation to susp ensions and controls. All key ingredients of an advanced detector are covered, including the solutions implemented infirst-generation detectors, their limitations, and how to overcome them. Each issue is addressed with special reference to the solution ad opted for Advanced VIRGO, but constant attention is also paid to other strategies, inparticular those chosen for Advanced LIGO |

Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | Gravity, a Geometrical Course presents general relativity (GR) in a systematic and exhaustive way, covering three aspects that are homogenized into a single texture: i) the mathematical, geometrical foundations, exposed ina self consistent contempora ry formalism, ii) the main physical, astrophysical and cosmological applications, updated to the issues of contemporary research and observations, with glimpses on supergravity and superstring theory, iii)the historical development of scientific ideas und erlying both the birth of general relativity and its subsequent evolution. The book is divided in two volumes. Volume One is dedicated to the development of the theory and basicphysical applications. It guides the reader from the foundation of special rel ativity to Einstein field equations, illustrating some basic applications in astrophysics. A detailed account of the historical and conceptualdevelopment of the theory is combined with the presentation of its mathematical foundations. Differentiable manif olds, fibre-bundles, differential forms, and the theory of connections are covered, with a sketchy introduction tohomology and cohomology. (Pseudo)-Riemannian geometry is presented both in the metric and in the vielbein approach. Physical applications inc lude the motions in a Schwarzschild field leading to the classical tests of GR (light-raybending and periastron advance) discussion of relativistic stellar equilibrium, white dwarfs, Chandrasekhar mass limit and polytropes. An entire chapter is devoted to tests of GR and to the indirect evidence of gravitational waveemission. The formal structure of gravitational theory is at all stages compared with that of non gravitational gauge theories, as a preparation to its modern extension, namely supergravity, d iscussed in the second volume. PietroFr is Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Torino, Italy. He has taught General Relativity for 15 years |

Title: | Theory of Gravitational Interactions [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |

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 |

Title: | From Special Relativity to Feynman Diagrams [electronic resource] : A Course of Theoretical Particle Physics for Beginners |

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 |

Note: | This richly illustrated book is unique in bringing Einstein's relativity to a higher level for the non-specialist than has ever been attempted before, using nothing more than grade-school algebra. Bondi's approach with spacetimediagrams is simplified and expanded, clarifying the famous asymmetric aging-of-twins paradox. Einstein's theory of gravity, general relativity, is simplified for the reader using spacetime diagrams. The theory is applied to importanttopics in physics such as gravitational wave s, gravitational collapse and black holes, time machines, the relationship to the quantum world, galactic motions and cosmology |

Note: | This is the updated, widely revised, restructured and expanded third edition of Lna et al.'s successful work Observational Astrophysics. It presents a synthesis on tools and methods of observational astrophysics of the early21st century. Written spec ifically for astrophysicists and graduate students, this textbook focuses on fundamental and sometimes practical limitations on the ultimate performance that an astronomical system may reach, rather thanpresenting particular systems in detail. In little m ore than a decade there has been extraordinary progress in imaging and detection technologies, in the fields of adaptive optics, optical interferometry, in the sub-millimetrewaveband, observation of neutrinos, discovery of exoplanets, to name but a few ex amples. The work deals with ground-based and space-based astronomy and their respective fields. And it also presents the ambitious concepts behind spacemissions aimed for the next decades. Avoiding particulars, it covers the whole of the electromagnetic s pectrum, and provides an introduction to the new forms of astronomy becoming possible with gravitational waves and neutrinos. Italso treats numerical aspects of observational astrophysics: signal processing, astronomical databases and virtual observatorie s |

Note: | As a result of significant research over the past 20 years, black holes are now linked to some of the most spectacular and exciting phenomena in the Universe, ranging in size from those that have the same mass as stars to thesuper-massive objects tha t lie at the heart of most galaxies, including our own Milky Way. This book first introduces the properties of simple isolated holes, then adds in complications like rotation, accretion, radiation, and magneticfields, finally arriving at a basic understan ding of how these immense engines work. Black Hole Astrophysics reviews our current knowledge of cosmic black holes and how they generate the most powerful observed pheonomena in theUniverse highlights the latest, most up-to-date theories and discoverie s in this very active area of astrophysical research demonstrates why we believe that black holes are responsible for important phenomena such as quasars,microquasars and gammaray bursts explains to the reader the nature of the violent and spectacular o utfl ows (winds and jets) generated by black hole accretion |

Note: | Today's scientists have at their command a wide range of sensitive and powerful instruments, not only those that capture electromagnetic radiation but also 'telescopes' for cosmic rays, neutrinos, gravitational waves, and darkmatter. Using the vast a mount of observational data produced by this new generation of observatories and telescopes, New Eyes on the Universe shows how some of the outstanding puzzles inherent in our emerging world view might besolved. With color illustrations throughout the tex t, this book is a fascinating exploration of the mysteries that the Universe still contains, such as - What is causing the Universe to blow itself apart? - What could be powering theluminous gamma-ray bursters? - Where is all the matter in the Universe? - Do other Earths exist? - What is the nature of dark matter? New Eyes on the Universe looks at these and other key issues in modern astronomy and cosmology. Itexplains clearly, without recourse to mathematics, why each question is puzzling and worthy of r esearch |

Title: | Beyond Einstein Gravity [electronic resource] : A Survey of Gravitational Theories for Cosmology and Astrophysics |

Note: | Beyond Einsteins Gravity is a graduate level introduction to extended theories of gravity and cosmology, including variational principles, the weak-field limit, gravitational waves, mathematical tools, exact solutions, as wellas cosmological and astr ophysical applications. The book provides a critical overview of the research in this area and unifies the existing literature using a consistent notation. Although the results apply in principle to allalternative gravities, a special emphasis is on scala r-tensor and f(R) theories. They were studied by theoretical physicists from early on, and in the 1980s they appeared in attempts to renormalize General Relativity and in models ofthe early universe. Recently, these theories have seen a new lease of life, in both their metric and metric-affine versions, as models of the present acceleration of the universe without introducing the mysterious and exotic darkenergy. The dark matter problem can also be addressed in extended gravity. These applications are con tributing to a deeper understanding of the gravitational interaction from both the theoretical and the experimental point of view. Anextensive bibliography guides the reader into more detailed literature on particular topics |

Note: | The study of stellar oscillations is the preeminent way to investigate the stability of stars and to interpret their variability. The theory of the linear, isentropic oscillations of isolated gaseous stars, and thus ofcompressible spherically symmetr ic equilibrium configurations, has largely been developed from the viewpoint of the hypothesis of the physical radial pulsations of stars. Written for doctoral students and researchers, this monographaims to provide a systematic and consistent survey of t he fundamentals of the theory of free, linear, isentropic oscillations in spherically symmetric, gaseous equilibrium stars. The first part of the book presents basic concepts andequations, the distinction between spheroidal and toroidal normal modes, the solution of Poissons differential equation for the perturbation of the gravitational potential, and Hamiltons variational principle. The second part isdevoted to the possible existence of waves propagating in the radial direction, the origin and classific ation of normal modes, the completeness of the normal modes, and the relation between the local stability with respect toconvection and the global stability of a star. The third part deals with asymptotic representations of normal modes and with slow peri od changes in rapidly evolving pulsating stars |

Note: | Neutron stars are the most compact astronomical objects in the universe which are accessible by direct observation. Studying neutron stars means studying physics in regimes unattainable in any terrestrial laboratory.Understanding their observed compl ex phenomena requires a wide range of scientific disciplines, including the nuclear and condensed matter physics of very dense matter in neutron star interiors, plasma physics and quantumelectrodynamics of magnetospheres, and the relativistic magneto-hydr odynamics of electron-positron pulsar winds interacting with some ambient medium. Not to mention the test bed neutron stars provide for general relativity theories,and their importance as potential sources of gravitational waves. It is this variety of dis ciplines which, among others, makes neutron star research so fascinating, not only for those who have been working in the field for many yearsbut also for students and young scientists. The aim of this book is to serve as a reference work which not only r eviews the progress made since the early days of pulsar astronomy, but especially focuses on questions such as: Whathave we learned about the subject and how did we learn it?, What are the most important open questions in this area? and What new tools, te lescopes, observations, and calculations are needed to answer these questions?. Allauthors who have contributed to this book have devoted a significant part of their scientific careers to exploring the nature of neutron stars and understanding pulsars. Ev eryone has paid special attention to writing educationalcomprehensive review articles with the needs of beginners, students and young scientists as potential readers in mind. This book will be a valuable source of information for these groups |

Note: | Black hole gravitohydromagnetics (GHM) is developed from the rudiments to the frontiers of research in this book. GHM describes plasma interactions that combine the effects of gravity and a strong magnetic field, in the vicinity(ergosphere) of a rapi dly rotating black hole. This topic was created in response to the astrophysical quest to understand the central engines of radio loud extragalactic radio sources. The theory describes a torsional tug of warbetween rotating ergospheric plasma and the dist ant asymptotic plasma that extracts the rotational inertia of the black hole. The recoil from the struggle between electromagnetic and gravitational forces near the event horizon ismanifested as a powerful pair of magnetized particle beams (jets) that are ejected at nearly the speed of light. These bipolar jets feed large-scale magnetized plasmoids on scales as large as millions of light years (the radio lobes ofextragalactic radio sources). This interaction can initiate jets that transport energy fluxes exceeding 1047 ergs/s. This second edition of the book is updated throughout and contains a completely new chapter discussing state of theart and results of numerical simulations of ergospheric disk jets occuring in magnetohydrodynamic accretion flows |

Note: | The geometric interpretation of gravitation is one of the major foundations of modern theoretical physics. This primer introduces classical general relativity with emphasis on the clarity of conceptual structure and on the basicmathematical methods t o build up systematically application skills. The wealth of physical phenomena entailed by the Einsteins equations is revealed with the help of specific models describing gravitomagnetism, gravitational waves,cosmology, gravitational collapse and black ho les. End-of-chapter exercises complete the main text. This book is based on class-tested notes for courses that have been held by the author over many years at the University of Bern, whereEinstein worked at the local patent office and where the foundatio ns of special relativity were laid |

Antoniadis, and collects up-to-date essays on the experimental testsof this theory. Contr ary to some beliefs, general relativity is now a theory extremely well confirmed by detailed experiments, including the precise timing of the double pulsar J0737-3039 explained by M. Kramer, member of the teamwhich discovered it in 2003, and satellite mis sions such as Gravity Probe B described by leading team member J. Mester. The search for detecting gravitational waves is also very much under way as reviewed by J.-Y. Vinet |

Note: | The construction of a quantum theory of gravity is the most fundamental challenge confronting contemporary theoretical physics. The different physical ideas which evolved while developing a theory of quantum gravity requirehighly advanced mathematica l methods. This book presents different mathematical approaches to formulate a theory of quantum gravity. It represents a carefully selected cross-section of lively discussions about the issue of quantumgravity which took place at the second workshop Math ematical and Physical Aspects of Quantum Gravity in Blaubeuren, Germany. This collection covers in a unique way aspects of various competing approaches. A unique feature of thebook is the presentation of different approaches to quantum gravity making comp arison feasible. This feature is supported by an extensive index. The book is mainly addressed to mathematicians and physicists who are interested inquestions related to mathematical physics. It allows the reader to obtain a broad and up-to-date overview on a fascinating active research area |

Title: | Compact Objects in Astrophysics [electronic resource] : White Dwarfs, Neutron Stars and Black Holes |

Note: | Compact objects are an important class of astronomical objects in current research. Supermassive black holes play an important role in the understanding of the formation of galaxies in the early Universe. Old white dwarfs arenowadays used to calibrat e the age of the Universe. Mergers of neutron stars and black holes are the sources of intense gravitational waves which will be measured in the next ten years by gravitational wave detectors. Camenzind'sCompact Objects in Astrophysics gives a comprehensi ve introduction and up-to-date overview about the physical processes behind these objects, covering the field from the beginning to most recent results, including all relevantobservations. After a presentation of the taxonomy of compact objects, the basic principles of general relativity are given. The author then discusses in detail the physics and observations of white dwarfs and neutron stars (includingthe most recent equations of state for neutron star matter), the gravitational field of rapidly rotat ing compact objects, rotating black holes (including ray tracing and black hole magnetospheres), gravitational waves, and the newunderstanding of accretion processes by means of the magnetorotational instability of accretion disks. This modern treatise of compact object astrophysics uses the 3+1 split approach to Einstein's equations, and to relativistichydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics. In each chapter problems and solutions help deepen the understanding of the subject. Both advanced students and re searchers will appreciate this book as an advanced textbook and reference on thisfascinating field of astrophysics |

Note: | Based on a course given at Oxford over many years, this book is a short and concise exposition of the central ideas of general relativity. Although the original audience was made up of mathematics students, the focus is on thechain of reasoning that leads to the relativistic theory from the analysis of distance and time measurements in the presence of gravity, rather than on the underlying mathematical structure. The geometric ideas - which are central tothe understanding of the nature of gravity - a re introduced in parallel with the development of the theory, the emphasis being on laying bare how one is led to pseudo-Riemannian geometry through a natural process of reconciliation ofspecial relativity with the equivalence principle. At centre stage a re the local inertial coordinates set up by an observer in free fall, in which special relativity is valid over short times and distances. In more practical terms,the book is a sequel to the author's Special Relativity in the same series, with some overla p in the treatment of tensors. The basic theory is presented using techniques, such as phase-plane analysis, that will already be familiar tomathematics undergraduates, and numerous problems, of varying levels of difficulty, are provided to test understan ding. The latter chapters include the theoretical background to contemporary observational tests - in particular thedetection of gravitational waves and the verification of the Lens-Thirring precession - and some introductory cosmology, to tempt the reade r to further study. While primarily designed as an introduction for final-year undergraduatesand first-year postgraduates in mathematics, the book is also accessible to physicists who would like to see a more mathematical approach to the ideas |

Note: | This monograph presents a self contained mathematical treatment of the initial value problem for shock wave solutions of the Einstein equations in General Relativity. The first two chapters provide background for the introductionof a locally intertia l Glimm Scheme, a non-dissipative numerical scheme for approximating shock wave solutions of the Einstein equations in spherically symmetric spacetimes. What follows is a careful analysis of this scheme providing aproof of the existence of (shock wave) so lutions of the spherically symmetric Einstein equations for a perfect fluid, starting from initial density and velocity profiles that are only locally of bounded total variation. The book coversthe initial value problems for Einstein's gravitational field equations with fluid sources and shock wave initial data. It has a clearly outlined goal: proving a certain local existence theorem. Concluding remarks are added andcommentary is provided throughout. The book will be useful to graduate students and resea rchers in mathematics and physics |

Note: | This book offers a succinct and self-contained treatment of general relativity and its application to neutron stars, black holes, gravitational waves and cosmology, at an intermediate level. The required mathematical concepts areintroduced informally , following geometrical intuition as much as possible. The approach is theoretical, but there is ample discussion of observational aspects and instrumental issues where appropriate. Topical issues such as theGravity Probe B mission, and the physics of int erferometer detectors of gravitational waves and the angular power spectrum of the Cosmic Microwave Background are included. The book is written for advanced undergraduates and beginninggraduate students in (astro)physics. The reader is assumed to be fami liar with linear algebra and analysis, ordinary differential equations, special relativity, and basic thermal physics, but prior knowledge of differential geometryand general relativity is not required. Containing 140 exercises with extensive hints for th eir solution this book is ideally suited for a lecture course. The author is a senior scientist at the SRON Netherlands Institute for SpaceResearch and teaches regularly at the University of Utrecht |

Note: | Spurred by the current development of numerous large-scale projects for detecting gravitational radiation, with the aim to open a completely new window to the observable Universe, numerical relativity has become a major field ofresearch over the past years. Indeed, numerical relativity is the standard approach when studying potential sources of gravitational waves, where strong fields and relativistic velocities are part of any physical scenario. This bookcan be considered a primer for both graduate students and non-specialist researchers wishing to enter the field. Starting from the most basic insights and aspects of numerical relativity, Elements of Numerical Relativity developscoherent guidelines for the reliable and convenient selection of each o f the following key aspects: evolution formalism, gauge, initial and boundary conditions as well as various numerical algorithms. The tests and applicationsproposed in this book can be performed on a standard PC |
