Title  Linear Response Theory : An AnalyticAlgebraic Approach 
Author(s)  De Nittis, Giuseppe;Lein, Max 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  X, 138 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a modern and systematic approach to Linear Response Theory (LRT) by combining analytic and algebraic ideas. LRT is a tool to study systems that are driven out of equilibrium by external perturbations. In particular the reader is provided with a new and robust tool to implement LRT for a wide array of systems. The proposed formalism in fact applies to periodic and random systems in the discrete and the continuum. After a short introduction describing the structure of the book, its aim and motivation, the basic elements of the theory are presented in chapter 2. The mathematical framework of the theory is outlined in chapters 3???5: the relevant von Neumann algebras, noncommutative $L^p$ and Sobolev spaces are introduced; their construction is then made explicit for common physical systems; the notion of isopectral perturbations and the associated dynamics are studied. Chapter 6 is dedicated to the main results, proofs of the Kubo and KuboStreda formulas. The book closes with a chapter about possible future developments and applications of the theory to periodic light conductors. The book addresses a wide audience of mathematical physicists, focusing on the conceptual aspects rather than technical details and making algebraic methods accessible to analysts

Title  A Computational Noncommutative Geometry Program for Disordered Topological Insulators 
Author(s)  Prodan, Emil 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  X, 118 p. 19 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This work presents a computational program based on the principles of noncommutative geometry and showcases several applications to topological insulators. Noncommutative geometry has been originally proposed by Jean Bellissard as a theoretical framework for the investigation of homogeneous condensed matter systems. Recently, this approach has been successfully applied to topological insulators, where it facilitated many rigorous results concerning the stability of the topological invariants against disorder. In the first part of the book the notion of a homogeneous material is introduced and the class of disordered crystals defined together with the classification table, which conjectures all topological phases from this class. The manuscript continues with a discussion of electrons??? dynamics in disordered crystals and the theory of topological invariants in the presence of strong disorder is briefly reviewed. It is shown how all this can be captured in the language of noncommutative geometry using the concept of noncommutative Brillouin torus, and a list of known formulas for various physical response functions is presented. In the second part, auxiliary algebras are introduced and a canonical finitevolume approximation of the noncommutative Brillouin torus is developed. Explicit numerical algorithms for computing generic correlation functions are discussed. In the third part upper bounds on the numerical errors are derived and it is proved that the canonicalfinite volume approximation converges extremely fast to the thermodynamic limit. Convergence tests and various applications concludes the presentation. The book is intended for graduate students and researchers in numerical and mathematical physics

Title  Transport Studies of the Electrical, Magnetic and Thermoelectric properties of Topological Insulator Thin Films 
Author(s)  Zhang, Jinsong 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 116 p. 87 illus., 84 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the transport studies of topological insulator thin films grown by molecular beam epitaxy. Through band structure engineering, the ideal topological insulators, (Bi1???xSbx)2Te3 ternary alloys, are successfully fabricated, which possess truly insulating bulk and tunable conducting surface states. Further transport measurements on these ternary alloys reveal a disentanglement between the magnetoelectric and thermoelectric properties. In magnetically doped topological insulators, the fascinating quantum anomalous Hall effect was experimentally observed for the first time. Moreover, the topologydriven magnetic quantum phase transition was Systematically controlled by varying the strength of the spinorbital coupling. Readers will not only benefit from the description of the technique of transport measurements, but will also be inspired by the understanding of topological insulators

Title  LiebRobinson Bounds for MultiCommutators and Applications to Response Theory 
Author(s)  Bru, J.B;de Siqueira Pedra, W 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  VII, 109 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  LiebRobinson bounds for multicommutators are effective mathematical tools to handle analytic aspects of infinite volume dynamics of nonrelativistic quantum particles with shortrange, possibly timedependent interactions. In particular, the existence of fundamental solutions is shown for those (nonautonomous) C*dynamical systems for which the usual conditions found in standard theories of (parabolic or hyperbolic) nonautonomous evolution equations are not given. In mathematical physics, bounds on multicommutators of an order higher than two can be used to study linear and nonlinear responses of interacting particles to external perturbations. These bounds are derived for lattice fermions, in view of applications to microscopic quantum theory of electrical conduction discussed in this book. All results also apply to quantum spin systems, with obvious modifications. In order to make the results accessible to a wide audience, in particular to students in mathematics with little Physics background, basics of Quantum Mechanics are presented, keeping in mind its algebraic formulation. The C*algebraic setting for lattice fermions, as well as the celebrated LiebRobinson bounds for commutators, are explained in detail, for completeness

Title  An Introduction to Integrable Techniques for OneDimensional Quantum Systems 
Author(s)  Franchini, Fabio 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XII, 180 p. 17 illus., 11 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book introduces the reader to basic notions of integrable techniques for onedimensional quantum systems. In a pedagogical way, a few examples of exactly solvable models are worked out to go from the coordinate approach to the Algebraic Bethe Ansatz, with some discussion on the finite temperature thermodynamics. The aim is to provide the instruments to approach more advanced books or to allow for a critical reading of research articles and the extraction of useful information from them. We describe the solution of the anisotropic XY spin chain; of the LiebLiniger model of bosons with contact interaction at zero and finite temperature; and of the XXZ spin chain, first in the coordinate and then in the algebraic approach. To establish the connection between the latter and the solution of two dimensional classical models, we also introduce and solve the 6vertex model. Finally, the low energy physics of these integrable models is mapped into the corresponding conformal field theory. Through its style and the choice of topics, this book tries to touch all fundamental ideas behind integrability and is meant for students and researchers interested either in an introduction to later delve in the advance aspects of Bethe Ansatz or in an overview of the topic for broadening their culture

Title  Holographic Entanglement Entropy 
Author(s)  Rangamani, Mukund;Takayanagi, Tadashi 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  IX, 246 p. 133 illus., 66 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a comprehensive overview of developments in the field of holographic entanglement entropy. Within the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence, it is shown how quantum entanglement is computed by the area of certain extremal surfaces. The general lessons one can learn from this connection are drawn out for quantum field theories, manybody physics, and quantum gravity. An overview of the necessary background material is provided together with a flavor of the exciting open questions that are currently being discussed. The book is divided into four main parts. In the first part, the concept of entanglement, and methods for computing it, in quantum field theories is reviewed. In the second part, an overview of the AdS/CFT correspondence is given and the holographic entanglement entropy prescription is explained. In the third part, the timedependence of entanglement entropy in outofequilibrium systems, and applications to many body physics are explored using holographic methods. The last part focuses on the connection between entanglement and geometry. Known constraints on the holographic map, as well as, elaboration of entanglement being a fundamental building block of geometry are explained. The book is a useful resource for researchers and graduate students interested in string theory and holography, condensed matter and quantum information, as it tries to connect these different subjects linked by the common theme of quantum entanglement

Title  Nonlinear Systems, Vol. 2 : Nonlinear Phenomena in Biology, Optics and Condensed Matter 
Author(s)  Archilla, Juan F. R;Palmero, Faustino;Lemos, M. Carmen;S??nchezRey, Bernardo;CasadoPascual, Jes??s 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XIX, 340 p. 144 illus., 95 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents an overview of the most recent advances in nonlinear science. It provides a unified view of nonlinear properties in many different systems and highlights many?? new developments. While volume 1 concentrates on mathematical theory and computational techniques and challenges, which are essential for the study of nonlinear science, this second volume deals with nonlinear excitations in several fields. These excitations can be localized and transport energy and matter in the form of breathers, solitons, kinks or quodons with very different characteristics, which are discussed in the book. They can also transport electric charge, in which case they are known as polarobreathers or solectrons. Nonlinear excitations can influence function and structure in biology, as for example, protein folding. In crystals and other condensed matter, they can modify transport properties, reaction kinetics and interact with defects. There are also engineering applications in electric lattices, Josephson junction arrays, waveguide arrays, photonic crystals and optical fibers. Nonlinear excitations are inherent to BoseEinstein Condensates, constituting an excellent benchmark for testing their properties and providing a pathway for future discoveries in fundamental physics.??
