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 |

Title: | Relativistic Dissipative Hydrodynamic Description of the Quark-Gluon Plasma [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Akihiko Monnai |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This thesis presents theoretical and numerical studies on phenomenological description of the quarkgluon plasma (QGP), a many-body system of elementary particles. The author formulates a causal theory of hydrodynamics forsystems with net charges fro m the law of increasing entropy and a momentum expansion method. The derived equation results can be applied not only to collider physics, but also to the early universe and ultra-cold atoms. The authoralso develops novel off-equilibrium hydrodynamic mod els for the longitudinal expansion of the QGP on the basis of these equations. Numerical estimations show that convection and entropy production during the hydrodynamic evolution arekey to explaining excessive charged particle production, recently observe d at the Large Hadron Collider. Furthermore, the analyses at finite baryon density indicate that the energy available for QGP production is larger than the amountconventionally assumed |

Title: | Relativity and Gravitation [electronic resource] : 100 Years after Einstein in Prague |
Author(s): |
Ji Bik Tom Ledvinka |

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

Title: | Many-Electron Approaches in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics [electronic resource] : A Multidisciplinary View |
Author(s): |
Volker Bach Luigi Delle Site |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book provides a broad description of the development and (computational) application of many-electron approaches from a multidisciplinary perspective. In the context of studying many-electron systems Computer Science,Chemistry, Mathematics and P hysics are all intimately interconnected. However, beyond a handful of communities working at the interface between these disciplines, there is still a marked separation of subjects. This book seeks to offera common platform for possible exchanges between the various fields and to introduce the reader to perspectives for potential further developments across the disciplines. The rapid advances of modern technology will inevitably requiresubstantial improvements in the approaches currently used, which will in turn make exchanges between disciplines indispensable. In essence this book is one of the very first attempts at an interdisciplinary approach to themany-electron problem |

Title: | An Introduction to Relativistic Processes and the Standard Model of Electroweak Interactions [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Carlo M Becchi Giovanni Ridolfi |
Date: | 2014 |
Edition: | 2nd ed. 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | These lectures are meant to be a reference and handbook for an introductory course in Theoretical Particle Physics, suitable for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students. Their purpose is to reconcile theoreticalrigour and completeness with a careful analysis of more phenomenological aspects of the physics. They aim at filling the gap between quantum field theory textbooks and purely phenomenological treatments of fundamental interactions. Thefirst part provides an introduction to scatt ering in relativistic quantum field theory. Thanks to an original approach to relativistic processes, the relevant computational techniques are derived cleanly and simply in thesemi-classical approximation. The second part contains a detailed presentation of the gauge theory of electroweak interactions with particular focus to the processes of greatest phenomenological interest. The main novelties of thepresent second edition are a more complete discussion of relativistic scattering theory and an expansio n of the study of the corrections to the semi-classical approximation, including important processes in LHC physics. The extensionof the standard model to include neutrino masses and oscillations is also discussed, and updated with new results |

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

Note: | This book provides a completely revised and expanded version of the previous classic edition General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics. In Part I the foundations of general relativity are thoroughly developed, whilePart II is devoted to tests of general relativity and many of its applications. Binary pulsars our best laboratories for general relativity are studied in considerable detail. An introduction to gravitational lensing theory isincluded as well, so as to make the current literature on the subject accessible to readers. Considerable attention is devoted to the study of compact objects, especially to black holes. This includes a detailed derivation of the Kerrsolution, Israels proof of his uniqueness theorem, and a derivation of the b asic laws of black hole physics. Part II ends with Wittens proof of the positive energy theorem, which is presented in detail, together with the requiredtools on spin structures and spinor analysis. In Part III, all of the differential geometric tools req uired are developed in detail. A great deal of effort went into refining and improving the text for the new edition. New material hasbeen added, including a chapter on cosmology. The book addresses undergraduate and graduate students in physics, astrophys ics and mathematics. It utilizes a very well structured approach, which should help it continue to be a standardwork for a modern treatment of gravitational physics. The clear presentation of differential geometry also makes it useful for work on string t heory and other fields of physics, classical as well as quantum |

Note: | The physics of strongly interacting matter in an external magnetic field is presently emerging as a topic of great cross-disciplinary interest for particle, nuclear, astro- and condensed matter physicists. It is known that strongmagnetic fields are c reated in heavy ion collisions, an insight that has made it possible to study a variety of surprising and intriguing phenomena that emerge from the interplay of quantum anomalies, the topology of non-Abelian gaugefields, and the magnetic field. In particu lar, the non-trivial topological configurations of the gluon field induce a non-dissipative electric current in the presence of a magnetic field. These phenomena have led to an extendedformulation of relativistic hydrodynamics, called chiral magnetohydrod ynamics. Hitherto unexpected applications in condensed matter physics include graphene and topological insulators. Other fields of application includeastrophysics, where strong magnetic fields exist in magnetars and pulsars. Last but not least, an import ant new theoretical tool that will be revisited and which made much of the progress surveyed in this book possible is theholographic principle - the correspondence between quantum field theory and gravity in extra dimensions. Edited and authored by the pi oneers and leading experts in this newly emerging field, this book offers a valuable resource for abroad community of physicists and graduate students |

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

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: | Schecks Quantum Physics presents a comprehensive introductory treatment, ideally suited for a two-semester course. Part One covers the basic principles and prime applications of quantum mechanics, from the uncertaintyrelations to many-body systems. P art Two introduces to relativistic quantum field theory and ranges from symmetries in quantum physics to electroweak interactions. Numerous worked-out examples as well as exercises, with solutions orhints, enables the books use as an accompanying text for courses, and also for independent study. For both parts, the necessary mathematical framework is treated in adequate form and detail. The book ends with appendices coveringmathematical fundamentals and enrichment topics, plus selected biographical notes on pioneers of quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. The new edition was thoroughly revised and now includes new sections on quantization using thepath integral method and on deriving generalized path integrals for bosonic and fermionic fields |

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

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: | Electroweak and Strong Interaction: Phenomenology, Concepts, Models, begins with relativistic quantum mechanics and some quantum field theory which lay the foundation for the rest of the text. The phenomenology and the physics ofthe fundamental inter actions are emphasized through a detailed discussion of the empirical fundamentals of unified theories of strong, electromagnetic, and weak interactions. The principles of local gauge theories are described both ina heuristic and a geometric framework. Th e minimal standard model of the fundamental interactions is developed in detail and characteristic applications are worked out. Possible signals of physics beyond that model, notably in thephysics of neutrinos are also discussed. Among the applications sc attering on nucleons and on nuclei provide salient examples. Numerous exercises with solutions make the text suitable for advanced courses or individual study. Thiscompletely updated revised new edition contains an enlarged chapter on quantum chromodynami cs and a widely updated chapter on neutrino physics |

Note: | Symmetries, coupled with the mathematical concept of group theory, are an essential conceptual backbone in the formulation of quantum field theories capable of describing the world of elementary particles. This primer is anintroduction to and survey of the underlying concepts and structures needed in order to understand and handle these powerful tools. Specifically, in Part I of the book the symmetries and related group theoretical structures of theMinkowskian space-time manifold are analyzed, while Part II examines the internal symmetries and their related unitary groups, where the interactions between fundamental particles are encoded as we know them from the present standardmodel of particle physics. This book, based on several courses given by th e authors, addresses advanced graduate students and non-specialist researchers wishing to enter active research in the field, and having a working knowledge ofclassical field theory and relativistic quantum mechanics. Numerous end-of-chapter problems and their solutions will facilitate the use of this book as self-study guide or as course book for topical lectures |

Note: | Advanced Quantum Mechanics: Materials and Photons is a textbook which emphasizes the importance of advanced quantum mechanics for materials science and all experimental techniques which employ photon absorption, emission, orscattering. Important aspe cts of introductory quantum mechanics are covered in the first seven chapters to make the subject self-contained and accessible for a wide audience. The textbook can therefore be used for advancedundergraduate courses and introductory graduate courses whi ch are targeted towards students with diverse academic backgrounds from the Natural Sciences or Engineering. To enhance this inclusive aspect of making the subject asaccessible as possible, Appendices A and B also provide introductions to Lagrangian mecha nics and the covariant formulation of electrodynamics. Other special features include an introduction to Lagrangian field theory and an integrateddiscussion of transition amplitudes with discrete or continuous initial or final states. Once students have a cquired an understanding of basic quantum mechanics and classical field theory, canonical field quantization is easy.Furthermore, the integrated discussion of transition amplitudes naturally leads to the notions of transition probabilities, decay rates, a bsorption cross sections and scattering cross sections, which are important for all experimentaltechniques that use photon probes. Quantization is first discussed for the Schrdinger field before the relativistic Maxwell, Klein-Gordon and Dirac fields are quantized. Quantized Schrdinger field theory is not only important forcondensed matter physics and materials science, but also provides the easiest avenue to general field quantization and is therefore also useful for students with an interest in nuclear and particle physics. The quantization of theMaxwell field is performed in Coulomb gauge. This is the appropriate and practically most useful quantization procedure in condensed matter physics, chem |

Note: | Quantization of physical systems requires a correct definition of quantum-mechanical observables, such as the Hamiltonian, momentum, etc., as self-adjoint operators in appropriate Hilbert spaces and their spectral analysis.Though a nave treatment exi sts for dealing with such problems, it is based on finite-dimensional algebra or even infinite-dimensional algebra with bounded operators, resulting in paradoxes and inaccuracies. A propertreatment of these problems requires invoking certain nontrivial n otions and theorems from functional analysis concerning the theory of unbounded self-adjoint operators and the theory of self-adjoint extensions of symmetric operators.Self-adjoint Extensions in Quantum Mechanics begins by considering quantization problem s in general, emphasizing the nontriviality of consistent operator construction by presenting paradoxes of the nave treatment. The necessarymathematical background is then built by developing the theory of self-adjoint extensions. Through examination of v arious quantum-mechanical systems, the authors show how quantization problems associated with the correct definitionof observables and their spectral analysis can be treated consistently for comparatively simple quantum-mechanical systems. Systems that ar e examined include free particles on an interval, particles in a number of potential fieldsincluding delta-like potentials, the one-dimensional Calogero problem, the AharonovBohm problem, and the relativistic Coulomb problem. This well-organized text is m ost suitable for graduate students and postgraduates interested indeepening their understanding of mathematical problems in quantum mechanics beyond the scope of those treated in standard textbooks. The book may also serve as a useful resource for mathema ticians and researchers in mathematical andtheoretical physics |

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

Note: | Newtons classical physics and its underlying ontology are loaded with several metaphysical hypotheses that cannot be justified by rational reasoning nor by experimental evidence. Furthermore, it is well known that some ofthese hypotheses are not cont ained in the great theories of modern physics, such as the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. This book shows that, on the basis of Newtons classical physics and by rational reconstruction, thetheory of relativity as well as quantum mechanics can be obtained by partly eliminating or attenuating the metaphysical hypotheses. Moreover, it is shown that these reconstructions do not require additional hypotheses or newexperimental results |

Note: | Which problems do arise within relativistic enhancements of the Schrdinger theory, especially if one adheres to the usual one-particle interpretation, and to what extent can these problems be overcome? And what is the physicalnecessity of quantum fie ld theories? In many books, answers to these fundamental questions are given highly insufficiently by treating the relativistic quantum mechanical one-particle concept very superficially and instead introducingfield quantization as soon as possible. By co ntrast, this monograph emphasizes relativistic quantum mechanics in the narrow sense: it extensively discusses relativistic one-particle concepts and reveals their problems and limitations,therefore motivating the necessity of quantized fields in a physic ally comprehensible way. The first chapters contain a detailed presentation and comparison of the Klein-Gordon and Dirac theory, always in view of the non-relativistictheory. In the third chapter, we consider relativistic scattering processes and develop the Feynman rules from propagator techniques. This is where the impossibility to get around a quantum field theoretical reasoning is discussed andbasic quantum field theoretical concepts are introduced. This book addresses undergraduate and graduate physi cs students who are interested in a clearly arranged and structured presentation of relativistic quantum mechanics in thenarrow sense and its connection to quantum field theories. Each section contains a short summary and exercises with solutions. A mathe matical appendix rounds up this excellent introductory book on relativistic quantum mechanics |

Note: | Density Functional Theory (DFT) has firmly established itself as the workhorse for the atomic-level simulation of condensed matter phases, pure or composite materials and quantum chemical systems. The present book is a rigorousand detailed introducti on to the foundations up to and including such advanced topics as orbital-dependent functionals and both time-dependent and relativistic DFT. Given the many ramifications of contemporary DFT, this textconcentrates on the self-contained presentation of the basics of the most widely used DFT variants. This implies a thorough discussion of the corresponding existence theorems and effective single particle equations, as well as of keyapproximations utilized in implementations. The formal results are complemen ted by selected quantitative results, which primarily aim at illustrating strengths and weaknesses of a particular approach or functional. DFT forsuperconducting or nuclear and hadronic systems are not addressed in this work. The structure and material co ntained in this book allow for a tutorial and modular self-study approach: the reader will find that all concepts of many-bodytheory which are indispensable for the discussion of DFT - such as the single-particle Greens function or response functions - ar e introduced step by step, rather than just used. The same applies to some basic notions of solid statetheory, as, for instance, the Fermi surface. Also, the language of second quantization is introduced systematically in an Appendix for readers without a formal theoretical physics background |

Note: | Studying and using light or photons to image and then to control and transmit molecular information is among the most challenging and significant research fields to emerge in recent years. One of the fastest growing areasinvolves research in the temp oral imaging of quantum phenomena, ranging from molecular dynamics in the femto (10-15s) time regime for atomic motion to the atto (10-18s) time scale of electron motion. In fact, the attosecondrevolution is now recognized as one of the most important rec ent breakthroughs and innovations in the science of the 21st century. A major participant in the development of ultrafast femto and attosecond temporal imaging ofmolecular quantum phenomena has been theory and numerical simulation of the nonlinear, non-pe rturbative response of atoms and molecules to ultrashort laser pulses. Therefore, imaging quantum dynamics is a new frontier of sciencerequiring advanced mathematical approaches for analyzing and solving spatial and temporal multidimensional partial diffe rential equations such as Time-Dependent Schroedinger Equations (TDSE) andTime-Dependent Dirac equations (TDDEsfor relativistic phenomena). These equations are also coupled to the photons in Maxwell's equations for collective propagation effects. Inversio n of the experimental imaging data of quantum dynamics presents new mathematical challengesin the imaging of quantum wave coherences on subatomic (subnanometer) spatial dimensions and multiple timescales from atto to femto and even nanoseconds.In Quantum Dynamic Imaging: Theoretical and Numerical Methods,leadingresearchers discuss these exciting state-of-the-art developments and theirimplications for R&D in view of the promise of quantum dynamic imagingscience as the essential tool for controlling matter at the molecular level. Presentsthe latest research results in ultrafast imaging of quantum phenomena Demonstrates the wide-ranging potential of quantum dynamic imaging for R&D in areas as |

Title: | Relativistic Many-Body Theory [electronic resource] : A New Field-Theoretical Approach |

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

Note: | Operational Spacetime: Interactions and Particles provides readers with a basic understanding of the mutual conditioning of spacetime and interactions and matter. The spacetime manifold will be looked at to be a reservoir for theparametrization of op eration Lie groups or subgroup classes of Lie groups. With basic operation groups or Lie algebras, all physical structures can be interpreted in terms of corresponding realizations or representations. Physicalproperties are related eigenvalues or invarian ts. As an explicit example, an operational spacetime is proposed, called electroweak spacetime, parametrizing the classes of the internal hypercharge-isospin group in the general lineargroup in two complex dimensions, i.e., the Lorentz cover group, extend ed by the causal (dilation) and phase group. Its representations and invariants will be investigated with the aim to connect them, qualitatively and numerically,with the properties of interactions and particles as arising in the representations of its tan gent Minkowski spaces.

Note: | The Multiversal book series is equally unique, providing book-length extensions of the lectures with enough additional depth for those who truly want to explore these fields, while also providing the kind of clarity that isappropriate for interested lay people to grasp the general principles involved. -Lawrence M. Krauss The aim of this book is to continue to raise public awareness in the exciting field of theoretical physics and cosmology. It coversthe latest theories at a level not weighed down by highly mathematical equations. Each chapter is written by a leading expert who is presently researching and lecturing on the topics. Extra Dimensions in Space and Time has two mainfeatures that differentiate it from all other books written about the topic : The first feature is the coverage of extra dimensions in time (Two-Time physics), which has not been covered in earlier books. All other books on the topicfocus on extra spatial dimensions. The second feature deals with level of presentation. The materi al is presented in a non-technical language followed by additional technical sections (in the form of appendices or footnotes) thatexplain the basic equations and formulas in the theories. This feature is very attractive to readers who want to learn more about the theories involved beyond the basic description for a layperson.

Note: | This textbook on Quantum Electrodynamics is a thorough introductory text providing all necessary mathematical tools together with many examples and worked problems. In their presentation of the subject the authors adopt aheuristic approach based on t he propagator formalism. The latter is introduced in the first two chapters in both its nonrelativistic and relativistic versions. Subsequently, a large number of scattering and radiation processesinvolving electrons, positrons, and photons are introduced and their theoretical treatment is presented in great detail. Higher order processes and renormalization are also included. The book concludes with a discussion of two-particlestates and the interaction of spinless bosons. This completely revised and cor rected new edition provides several additions to enable deeper insight in formalism and application of quantum electrodynamics |

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: | 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 |
