Download Ultracold Quantum Fields by Henk T. C. Stoof PDF

By Henk T. C. Stoof

Ultracold Quantum Fields offers a self-contained advent to quantum box concept for many-particle platforms, utilizing sensible tools all through. the final concentration is at the behaviour of so-called quantum fluids, i.e., quantum gases and drinks, yet trapped atomic gases are continually used for instance. either equilibrium and non-equilibrium phenomena are thought of. to begin with, within the equilibrium case, the correct Hartree-Fock thought for the houses of a quantum fluid within the common part is derived. the focal point then turns to the houses within the superfluid part, and the authors current a microscopic derivation of the Bogoliubov idea of Bose-Einstein condensation and the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer idea of superconductivity. the previous is appropriate to trapped bosonic gases corresponding to rubidium, lithium, sodium and hydrogen, and the latter particularly to the fermionic isotope of atomic lithium. within the non-equilibrium case, a number of issues are mentioned for which a field-theoretical strategy is mainly ideal. Examples are the macroscopic quantum tunnelling of a Bose-Einstein condensate, the part dynamics of bosonic and fermionic superfluids, and their collisionless collective modes.

The booklet relies upon the notes for a lecture path within the masters programme in Theoretical Physics at Utrecht.

Download Division Algebras:: Octonions Quaternions Complex Numbers by Geoffrey M. Dixon PDF

By Geoffrey M. Dixon

I do not be aware of who Gigerenzer is, yet he wrote whatever very smart that I observed quoted in a well-liked modern journal: "Evolution has tuned the way in which we predict to frequencies of co-occurances, as with the hunter who recalls the realm the place he has had the main luck killing game." This sanguine inspiration explains my obsession with the department algebras. each attempt i've got ever made to attach them to physics - to the layout of truth - has succeeded, with my expectancies frequently exceeded. no doubt this robust assertion is coloured by means of a selective reminiscence, however the form of online game I sought, and nonetheless search, turns out to frowst approximately this actual watering gap in droves. I settled down there a few years in the past and feature by no means feIt like Ieaving. This booklet is ready the beasts I chosen for awareness (if you are going to, to ren­ der this metaphor politically right, for instance i used to be a nature photographer), and the type of instruments I needed to enhance to get the type of photographs Iwanted (the instruments that i discovered there have been for my flavor overly summary and theoretical). half thisbook is set those instruments, and a few purposes thereof that are supposed to exhibit their energy. the remaining is dedicated to an indication of the intimate connection among the maths of the department algebras and the traditional version of quarks and leptons with U(l) x SU(2) x SU(3) gauge fields, and the relationship of this version to lO-dimensional spacetime implied by means of the math

Download Lehrbuch der Mathematischen Physik: Quantenmechanik von by Walter Thirring PDF

By Walter Thirring

In der Quantentheorie werden Observable durch Operatoren im Hilbert-Raum dargestellt. Der dafür geeignete mathematische Rahmen sind die Cx - Algebren, welche Matrizen und komplexe Funktionen verallgemeinern. Allerdings benötigt guy in der Physik auch unbeschränkte Operatoren, deren Problematik eigens untersucht werden muß. Dementsprechend werden zunächst mathematische Fragen studiert und dann die Methoden auf atomare Systeme angewandt. Obgleich guy außer dem Wasserstoffatom kaum explizit lösbare Probleme findet, lassen sich nicht nur allgemeine qualitative Fragen, etwa bezüglich des Energiespektrums und Streuverhaltens, beantworten, sondern auch quantitativ kann guy auch für kompliziertere Systeme für meßbare Größen Schranken teils befriedigender Genauigkeit finden. Inhaltsverzeichnis: Einleitung: Die Struktur der Quantentheorie; Größenordnungen atomarer Systeme.- Die mathematische Formulierung der Quantenmechanik: Lineare Räume; Algebren; Darstellungen im Hilbertraum; Einparametrige Gruppen; Unbeschränkte Operatoren und quadratische Formen.- Quantendynamik: Das Weyl-System; Der Drehimpuls; Die Zeitentwicklung; Der Limes t ; Störungstheorie; Stationäre Streutheorie.- Atomare Systeme: Das Wasserstoffatom; Das H-Atom in äußeren Feldern; Heliumartige Atome; Streuung am einfachen Atom; Komplexe Atome; Kernbewegung und einfache Moleküle.
