Quantum Kinetic Theory by Michael Bonitz

By Michael Bonitz

This ebook offers quantum kinetic concept in a accomplished approach. the focal point is on density operator tools and on non-equilibrium eco-friendly capabilities. the speculation permits to carefully deal with nonequilibrium dynamics in quantum many-body platforms. Of specific curiosity are ultrafast strategies in plasmas, condensed topic and trapped atoms which are influenced via speedily constructing experiments with brief pulse lasers and unfastened electron lasers. to explain those experiments theoretically, the main robust strategy is given via non-Markovian quantum kinetic equations which are mentioned intimately, together with computational features.

Statistical Physics of Non-Thermal Phase Transitions: From by Sergey G. Abaimov

By Sergey G. Abaimov

This publication addresses the appliance of equipment utilized in statistical physics to complicated systems—from uncomplicated phenomenological analogies to extra advanced points, similar to correlations, fluctuation-dissipation theorem, the concept that of unfastened power, renormalization staff method and scaling. Statistical physics features a well-developed formalism that describes section transitions. it's important to use this formalism for harm phenomena to boot. Fractals, the Ising version, percolation, harm mechanics, fluctuations, unfastened strength formalism, renormalization workforce, and scaling, are many of the issues lined in Statistical Physics of section Transitions.

Condensed matter physics by Michael P. Marder

By Michael P. Marder

A latest, unified remedy of condensed topic physics This new paintings offers for the 1st time in many years a sweeping overview of the complete box of condensed subject physics. It consolidates new and vintage subject matters from disparate resources, educating "not simply concerning the potent lots of electrons in semiconductor crystals and band thought, but in addition approximately quasicrystals, dynamics of part separation, why rubber is extra floppy than metal, electron interference in nanometer-sized channels, and the quantum corridor effect." Six significant parts are covered---atomic constitution, digital constitution, mechanical homes, electron delivery, optical homes, and magnetism. yet instead of defining the sector by way of specific fabrics, the writer specializes in the best way condensed topic physicists method actual difficulties, combining phenomenology and microscopic arguments with details from experiments. For graduate scholars and pros, researchers and engineers, utilized mathematicians and fabrics scientists, Condensed topic Physics presents: * a thrilling choice of new subject matters from the previous twenty years. * an intensive remedy of vintage issues, together with band idea, shipping idea, and semiconductor physics. * Over three hundred figures, incorporating many photographs from experiments. * widespread comparability of concept and scan, either after they agree and while difficulties are nonetheless unsolved. * greater than 50 tables of knowledge and a close index. * abundant end-of-chapter difficulties, together with computational routines. * Over one thousand references, either fresh and traditionally major.

Magnetic Oscillations in Metals by D. Shoenberg

By D. Shoenberg

It is only over eighty years in the past impressive oscillatory box dependence used to be found within the magnetic behaviour of bismuth at low temperatures. This publication was once first released in 1984 and provides a scientific account of the character of the oscillations, of the experimental recommendations for his or her learn and in their reference to the digital constitution of the steel involved. even supposing the most emphasis is at the oscillations themselves and their many peculiarities, instead of at the conception of the digital constitution they exhibit, adequate examples are given intimately to demonstrate the type of info that has been bought and the way this knowledge has the same opinion with theoretical prediction.
