How 200 years of classical physics was turned on its head
Quantum mechanics allows accurate predictions of nature, yet it also uncovers surprises like teleportation and multiple universes. It involves complicated mathematics, yet most general reader texts avoid mathematics. This book uses on high-school level mathematics to provide a deeper understanding of quantum mechanics.
Quarks, Leptons and The Big Bang, Third Edition, is a clear, readable and self-contained introduction to particle physics and related areas of cosmology. It bridges the gap between non-technical popular accounts and textbooks for advanced students. The book concentrates on presenting the subject from the modern perspective of quarks, leptons...
Quantum theory, the soul of theoretical physics, is derived in this book from fundamental principles applicable to any physical system. Explaining how to master the principles, and offering a radically new viewpoint inspired by quantum information, this will be of interest to anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the theory.
Strong Interactions in Spacelike and Timelike Domains: Dispersive Approach provides the theoretical basis for the description of the strong interactions in the spacelike and timelike domains. The book primarily focuses on the hadronic vacuum polarization function, R-ratio of electron-positron annihilation into hadrons, and the Adler function, which govern a variety...
This book provides an overview on nuclear physics and energy production from nuclear fission. the first covers the basics of nuclear forces and properties of nuclei, nuclear collisions, nuclear stability, radioactivity, and provides a detailed discussion of nuclear fission and relevant topics in its application to energy production.
Atomic and Molecular Photoabsorption: Partial Cross Sections is a companion work to Joseph Berkowitz's earlier work, Atomic and Molecular Photoabsorption: Absolute Total Cross Sections, published with Academic Press in 2002. In this work Joseph Berkowitz selected the "best" absolute partial cross sections for the same species as included in the...
The Nonlinear Schrodinger Equation
This volume provides canonical knowledge in atomic physics together with the basics of modern spectroscopy. Starting from the fundamentals of quantum physics, it teaches readers the most important phenomena, models and measuring techniques.
With an emphasis on experimentation and interpretation, this volume introduces lasers and quantum optics. It focuses on the structure of molecules and their spectroscopy as well as on collision physics as the continuum counterpart to bound molecular states.
