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

Title:Mathematical Models for Eddy Currents and Magnetostatics [electronic resource] : With Selected Applications
Author(s): Rachid Touzani
Jacques Rappaz
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This monograph addresses fundamental aspects of mathematical modeling and numerical solution methods of electromagnetic problems involving low frequencies, i.e. magnetostatic and eddy current problems which are rarely presented inthe applied mathemat ics literature. In the first part, the authors introduce the mathematical models in a realistic context in view of their use for industrial applications. Several geometric configurations of electric conductorsleading to different mathematical models are c arefully derived and analyzed, and numerical methods for the solution of the obtained problems are given. Related issues such as convergence of the approximations and error estimates arediscussed. The second part of the monograph presents various coupled problems that involve eddy current or magnetostatic problems, in particular magneto-hydrodynamic problems and magnetic shaping problems concerning the melt flow ofelectrically conducting metals, induction heating processes, inductively coupled plasmas and ferromagnetic screening modeling. The presentation of each model comes with numerical illustration from industrial applications

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: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

Title:Special Relativity in General Frames [electronic resource] : From Particles to Astrophysics

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Special relativity is the basis of many fields in modern physics: particle physics, quantum field theory, high-energy astrophysics, etc. This theory is presented here by adopting a four-dimensional point of view from the start.An outstanding feature of the book is that it doesnt restrict itself to inertial frames but considers accelerated and rotating observers. It is thus possible to treat physical effects such as the Thomas precession or the Sagnaceffect in a simple yet precise manner. In the final chapters, more advanced topics like tensorial fields in spacetime, exterior calculus and relativistic hydrodynamics are addressed. In the last, brief chapter the author gives apreview of gravity and shows where it becomes incompatible with Minkowsky spac etime. Well illustrated and enriched by many historical notes, this book also presents many applications of special relativity, ranging from particle physics(accelerators, particle collisions, quark-gluon plasma) to astrophysics (relativistic jets, active galactic nuclei), and including practical applications (Sagnac gyrometers, synchrotron radiation, GPS). In addition, the book providessome mathematical developments, such as the detailed analysis of the Lorentz group and its Lie algebra. The book is suit able for students in the third year of a physics degree or on a masters course, as well as researchers and anyreader interested in relativity. Thanks to the geometric approach adopted, this book should also be beneficial for the study of general relativit y. A modern presentation of special relativity must put forward its essentialstructures, before illustrating them using concrete applications to specific dynamical problems. Such is the challenge (so successfully met!) of the beautiful book by ric Gourgou lhon. (excerpt from the Foreword by ThibaultDamour)

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Brownian dynamics serve as mathematical models for the diffusive motion of microscopic particles of various shapes in gaseous, liquid, or solid environments. The renewed interest in Brownian dynamics is due primarily to their keyrole in molecular and cellular biophysics: diffusion of ions and molecules is the driver of all life. Brownian dynamics simulations are the numerical realizations of stochastic differential equations that model the functions ofbiological micro devices such as protein ionic ch annels of biological membranes, cardiac myocytes, neuronal synapses, and many more. Stochastic differential equations are ubiquitous models in computational physics, chemistry,biophysics, computer science, communications theory, mathematical finance theor y, and many other disciplines. Brownian dynamics simulations of the random motion of particles, be it molecules or stock prices, give rise to mathematicalproblems that neither the kinetic theory of Maxwell and Boltzmann, nor Einsteins and Langevins theori es of Brownian motion could predict. This book takes the readers on a journey that starts with the rigorous definition ofmathematical Brownian motion, and ends with the explicit solution of a series of complex problems that have immediate applications. It is aimed at applied mathematicians, physicists, theoretical chemists, and physiologists who areinterested in modeling, analysis, and simulation of micro devices of microbiology. The book contains exercises and worked out examples throughout

Note:The inverse scattering problem is central to many areas of science and technology such as radar and sonar, medical imaging, geophysical exploration and nondestructive testing. This book is devoted to the mathematical andnumerical analysis of the inve rse scattering problem for acoustic and electromagnetic waves. In this third edition, new sections have been added on the linear sampling and factorization methods for solving the inverse scatteringproblem as well as expanded treatments of iteration metho ds and uniqueness theorems for the inverse obstacle problem. These additions have in turn required an expanded presentation of both transmission eigenvalues and boundary integralequations in Sobolev spaces. As in the previous editions, emphasis has been g iven to simplicity over generality thus providing the reader with an accessible introduction to the field of inverse scattering theory. Review of earliereditions: Colton and Kress have written a scholarly, state of the art account of their view of direct and inverse scattering. The book is a pleasure to read as a graduate text or to dip into at leisure. It suggests a number ofopen problems and will be a source of inspiration for many years to come. SIAM Review, September 1994 This book should be on the desk of any researcher, any student, any teacher interested in scattering theory.Mathematical Intelligencer, June 1994

Title:Nonlinear Optics and Laser Emission through Random Media [electronic resource]
Author(s): Viola Folli
Date:2012
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Disorder is everywhere, inherently present in nature, and is commonly believed to be a synonymous with disturbance. As a consequence, the methodical and customary study of the dynamics of the electromagnetic field, both in thelinear and nonlinear opt ical regimes, leans to rule out it from the treatment. On the other hand, nonlinearity enriches the physical disciplines and brings them closer to reality with respect to the linear approximation. Nonlinearityallows to stimulate a wide and rich ensemble o f optical responses that beautifies the role of matter in the active processes with electromagnetic fields. Independently of each other, both of these mechanisms foster localization oflight. What happens when light enlightens their synergistic interaction ? When pushed together, light, disorder and nonlinearity make new and intriguing phenomena emerge. This text provides a comprehensive investigation of the role ofdisorder in the nonlinear optical propagation both in transparent media and lasers. Eventuall y, disorder promotes and enhances complex nonlinear dynamics opening new perspectives in applied research driven by the processes oflocalization of the electromagnetic field. The first experimental study of laser emission in granular media unveils how ran domness magnifies and largely affect laser-matter interactions. Viola Folli in her research work touches anddeepens the leading milestones of the new science named Complex Photonics

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book describes Maxwell's equations first in their integral, directly testable form, then moves on to their local formulation. The first two chapters cover all essential properties of Maxwell's equations, including theirsymmetries and their covari ance in a modern notation. Chapter 3 is devoted to Maxwell theory as a classical field theory and to solutions of the wave equation. Chapter 4 deals with important applications of Maxwell theory. It includestopical subjects such as metamaterials with nega tive refraction index and solutions of Helmholtz' equation in paraxial approximation relevant for the description of laser beams. Chapter 5 describes non-Abelian gauge theories from aclassical, geometric point of view, in analogy to Maxwell theory as a pr ototype, and culminates in an application to the U(2) theory relevant for electroweak interactions. The last chapter 6 gives a concise summary of semi-Riemanniangeometry as the framework for the classical field theory of gravitation. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the Schwarzschild solution of Einstein's equations and the classical tests of general relativity (perihelion precessionof Mercury, and light deflection by the sun). ------ Textbook features: detailed figures, worked examples, problem s and solutions, boxed inserts, highlighted special topics, highlighted important math etc., helpful summaries, appendix,index

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents a logically more complete form of macroscopic Maxwell equations than the conventional ones by applying long wavelength approximation to microscopic nonlocal theory. This scheme requires only one susceptibilitytensor describing elec tric and magnetic polarizations together with their mutual interference. The quantum mechanical expression of the susceptibility covers both chiral and achiral symmetry. Only in the absence of chiral symmetry,this reduces to the conventional form, under t he additional condition of using magnetic susceptibility defined with respect to, not H, but B. This scheme solves various problems inherent to the conventional scheme of Maxwellequations

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

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Intended to follow the usual introductory physics courses, this book has the unique feature of addressing the mathematical needs of sophomores and juniors in physics, engineering and other related fields. Many original, lucid,and relevant examples fr om the physical sciences, problems at the ends of chapters, and boxes to emphasize important concepts help guide the student through the material. Beginning with reviews of vector algebra and differential andintegral calculus, the book continues with infi nite series, vector analysis, complex algebra and analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations. Discussions of numerical analysis, nonlinear dynamics and chaos, and the Diracdelta function provide an introduction to modern topics in mathematical physics. This new edition has been made more user-friendly through organization into convenient, shorter chapters. Also, it includes an entirely new section onProbability and plenty of new material on tensors and integral transforms. Some praise for the p revious edition: The book has many strengths. For example: Each chapter starts with a preamble that puts the chapters in context. Often,the author uses physical examples to motivate definitions, illustrate relationships, or culminate the development of pa rticular mathematical strands. The use of Maxwell's equations to cap the presentation of vector calculus, adiscussion that includes some tidbits about what led Maxwell to the displacement current, is a particularly enjoyable example. Historical touches li ke this are not isolated cases the book includes a large number of notes on people andideas, subtly reminding the student that science and mathematics are continuing and fascinating human activities. --Physics Today Very well written (i.e., extremely read able), very well targeted (mainly to an average student ofphysics at a point of just leaving his/her sophomore level) and very well concentrated (to an author's apparently beloved subject of PDE's w

Note:Granular matter displays a variety of peculiarities that distinguish it from other appearances studied in condensed matter physics and renders its overall mathematical modelling somewhat arduous. Prominent directions in themodelling granular flows ar e analyzed from various points of view. Foundational issues, numerical schemes and experimental results are discussed.

Title:From Hyperbolic Systems to Kinetic Theory [electronic resource] : A Personalized Quest
Author(s): Luc Tartar
Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Equations of state are not always effective in continuum mechanics. Maxwell and Boltzmann created a kinetic theory of gases, using classical mechanics. How could they derive the irreversible Boltzmann equation from a reversibleHamiltonian framework? By using probabilities, which destroy physical reality! Forces at distance are non-physical as we know from Poincar's theory of relativity. Yet Maxwell and Boltzmann only used trajectories like hyperbolas,reasonable for rarefied gases, but wrong without b ound trajectories if the mean free path between collisions tends to 0. Tartar relies on his H-measures, a tool created for homogenization, to explain some of the weaknesses, e.g.from quantum mechanics: there are no particles, so the Boltzmann equation and the second principle, can not apply. He examines modes used by energy, proves which equation governs each mode, and conjectures that the result will notlook like the Boltzmann equation, and there will be more modes than those indexed by velocity!

Edmundo Capelas Oliveira
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 is a thoughtful exposition of the algebra and calculus of differential forms, the Clifford and Spin-Clifford bundles formalisms with emphasis in calculation procedures, and vistas to a formulation of some importantconcepts of differential g eometry necessary for a deep understanding of spacetime physics. The formalism discloses the hidden geometrical nature of spinor fields. Maxwell, Dirac and Einstein fields, which were originally consideredobjects of a very different mathematical nature, a re shown to have representatives as objects of the same mathematical nature, i.e. as sections of an appropriate Clifford bundle. This approach reveals unity in the diversity and alsothe many faces of the equations satisfied by those fields. Moreover, it s uggests relationships which are hidden in the standard formalisms and new paths for research. Some foundational issues of relativistic field theories, inparticular the one concerning the conditions for the existence of the conservation laws of energy-mome ntum and angular momentum in spacetime theories and many misconceptions concerning this issue is analyzed in details. The book willbe useful as reference book for researchers and advanced students of theoretical physics and mathematics. Calculation proced ures are illustrated by many exercises solved in detail, using the tricks of the trade. Furthermore thereaders will appreciate the comprehensive list of mathematical symbols as well as a list of acronyms and abbreviations

Note:The IMA Hot Topics workshop on compatible spatialdiscretizations was held May 11-15, 2004 at the University of Minnesota. The purpose of the workshop was to bring together scientists at the forefront of the research in thenumerical solution of PDEs t o discuss recent advances and novel applications of geometrical and homological approaches to discretization. This volume contains original contributions based on the material presented at the workshop. Aunique feature of the collection is the inclusion o f work that is representative of the recent developments in compatible discretizations across a wide spectrum of disciplines in computational science. Compatible spatialdiscretizations are those that inherit or mimic fundamental properties of the PDE such as topology, conservation, symmetries, and positivity structures and maximum principles. The papers in the volume offer a snapshot of the currenttrends and developments in compatible spatial discretizations. The reader will find valuable insights on spat ial compatibility from several different perspectives and important examples of applications compatible discretizations incomputational electromagnetics, geosciences, linear elasticity, eigenvalue approximations and MHD. The contributions collected in thi s volume will help to elucidate relations between different methods and concepts and to generallyadvance our understanding of compatible spatial discretizations for PDEs.

Title:Relativistic Quantum Mechanics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Hartmut M Pilkuhn
Date:2005
Edition:Second Edition
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this book, quantum mechanics is developed from the outset on a relativistic basis, using the superposition principle, Lorentz invariance and gauge invariance. Nonrelativistic quantum mechanics as well as classical relativisticmechanics appear as s pecial cases. They are the sources of familiar names such as orbital angular momentum, spin-orbit coupling and magnetic moment for operators of the relativistic quantum formalism. The theory ofbinaries, in terms of differential equations, is treated for t he first time in this book. These have the mathematical structure of the corresponding one-body equations (Klein-Gordon for two spinless particles, Dirac for two spinorparticles) with a relativistically reduced mass. They allow the calculation of radiativ e corrections via the vector potential operator. This second edition of the successful textbook adds various new sections on relativistic quantumchemistry and on the relativistic treatment of the proton in hydrogen. Others chapters have been expanded, e.g . on hyperfinite interactions, or carefully revisited
