Path Integrals: New Trends and Perspectives by Wolfhard Janke, Axel Pelster

By Wolfhard Janke, Axel Pelster

This court cases quantity comprises chosen talks and poster shows from the ninth foreign convention on course Integrals - New traits and views, which came about on the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of advanced structures in Dresden, Germany, throughout the interval September 23-28, 2007. carrying on with the well-developed culture of the convention sequence, the current prestige of either the various strategies of direction indispensable calculations and their various purposes to many fields of physics and chemistry is reviewed. this is often mirrored commonly themes during this quantity, which variety from extra conventional fields akin to basic quantum physics and quantum or statistical box concept via technical elements like Monte Carlo simulations to extra glossy functions within the realm of quantum gravity and astrophysics, condensed subject physics with topical topics corresponding to Bose-Einstein condensation or quantum wires, biophysics and econophysics. All articles are effectively tied jointly through the typical approach to course integration; for that reason, specified methodological developments in a single subject should be transferred to different subject matters.

The various specialists belong explicitly or implicitly to some organization of their specialty. That gets compounded by the competition among universities and laboratories aiming at establishing a general class system in physics. The periodic worldwide ranking by an Anglo-Saxon outfit comes out with a long list where the Physics Department of highest rank in Germany gets number 200! Life in the physics departments of the universities will change. Many professors will have to concentrate on teaching, and on reorienting their field of research.

1. ” is the title of a very famous novel by the Polish writer Hendryk Sienkiewicz who got the Nobel Prize of Literature in 1905, partially for this work. Hollywood then made probably more than one very successful movie, but I neither have read the book nor seen the movie. The title comes directly from the Gospel of St. John. ” The title of this paper has been used already in a talk I was invited to present 4 years ago in Valencia, Spain, for a general audience of scientists. It was then translated into Catalan by a colleague, J.
