Title  The Matrix Perturbation Method in Quantum Mechanics 
Author(s)  SotoEguibar, Francisco;VillegasMart??nez, Braulio Misael;MoyaCessa, H??ctor Manuel 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XV, 190 p. 39 illus., 34 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides an alternative approach to timeindependent perturbation theory in nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. It allows easy application to any initial condition because it is based on an approximation to the evolution operator and may also be used on unitary evolution operators for the unperturbed Hamiltonian in the case where the eigenvalues cannot be found. This flexibility sets it apart from conventional perturbation theory. The matrix perturbation method also gives new theoretical insights; for example, it provides corrections to the energy and wave function in one operation. Another notable highlight is the facility to readily derive a general expression for the normalization constant at mth order, a significant difference between the approach within and those already in the literature. Another unique aspect of the matrix perturbation method is that it can be extended directly to the Lindblad master equation. The first and secondorder corrections are obtained for this equation and the method is generalized for higher orders. An alternative form of the Dyson series, in matrix form instead of integral form, is also obtained. Throughout the book, several benchmark examples and practical applications underscore the potential, accuracy and good performance of this novel approach. Moreover, the method's applicability extends to some specific timedependent Hamiltonians. This book represents a valuable addition to the literature on perturbation theory in quantum mechanics and is accessible to students and researchers alike

Title  Exploring Quantum Contextuality with Photons 
Author(s)  Liu, ZhengHao 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  XXI, 156 p. 63 illus., 52 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis highlights research explorations in quantum contextuality with photons. Quantum contextuality is one of the most intriguing and peculiar predictions of quantum mechanics. It is also a cornerstone in modern quantum information science. It is the origin of the famous quantum nonlocality and various nonclassical paradoxes. It is also a resource for many quantum information processing tasks and even universal quantum computing. Therefore, the study of quantum contextuality not only advances the comprehension of the foundations of quantum physics, but also facilitates the practical applications of quantum information technology. In the last fifteen years, the study of quantum contextuality has developed from a purely theoretical level to a stage where direct experimental tests become amenable. However, the experimental research on contextuality at the current stage largely focuses on direct validations of some most famous predictions of contextuality, while other forms of contextuality and its practical applications in quantum information science are rarely involved. The research in this thesis is committed to bridge this gap from two directions: (1) to construct and test stronger forms of contextuality and relieve the requirements of contextuality experiments on experimental platforms, and (2) to explore the connections between contextuality and the other concepts in quantum information science and directly demonstrate the application of contextuality in broader scenarios. Specifically, the thesis have discussed the research topics about the relationship between quantum contextuality and nonlocality, the ???allversusnothing??? paradoxes from quantum contextuality, the ore and postselection paradoxes from quantum contextuality, and the topological protection and braiding dynamics of quantum contextuality in quasiparticle systems

Title  The Probability Integral : Its Origin, Its Importance, and Its Calculation 
Author(s)  Nahin, Paul J 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XXX, 189 p. 34 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book tells the story of the probability integral, the approaches to analyzing it throughout history, and the many areas of science where it arises. The socalled probability integral, the integral over the real line of a Gaussian function, occurs ubiquitously in mathematics, physics, engineering and probability theory. Stubbornly resistant to the undergraduate toolkit for handling integrals, calculating its value and investigating its properties occupied such mathematical luminaries as De Moivre, Laplace, Poisson, and Liouville. This book introduces the probability integral, puts it into a historical context, and describes the different approaches throughout history to evaluate and analyze it. The author also takes entertaining diversions into areas of math, science, and engineering where the probability integral arises: as well as being indispensable to probability theory and statistics, it also shows up naturally in thermodynamics and signal processing. Designed to be accessibleto anyone at the undergraduate level and above, this book will appeal to anyone interested in integration techniques, as well as historians of math, science, and statistics

Title  NonFourier Heat Conduction : From PhaseLag Models to Relativistic and Quantum Transport 
Author(s)  Zhmakin, Alexander I 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  IX, 422 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a broad and wellstructured overview of various nonFourier heat conduction models. The classical Fourier heat conduction model is valid for most macroscopic problems. However, it fails when the wave nature of the heat propagation becomes dominant and memory or nonlocal spatial effects become significant; e.g., during ultrafast heating, heat transfer at the nanoscale, in granular and porous materials, at extremely high values of the heat flux, or in heat transfer in biological tissues. The book looks at numerous nonFourier heat conduction models that incorporate time nonlocality for materials with memory, such as hereditary materials, including fractional hereditary materials, and/or spatial nonlocality, i.e. materials with a nonhomogeneous inner structure. Beginning with an introduction to classical transport theory, including phaselag, phonon, and thermomass models, the book then looks at various aspects of relativistic and quantum transport, including approaches based on the Landauer formalism as well as the GreenKubo theory of linear response. Featuring an appendix that provides an introduction to methods in fractional calculus, this book is a valuable resource for any researcher interested in theoretical and numerical aspects of complex, nontrivial heat conduction problems

Title  Problems and Solutions on Vector Spaces for Physicists : From Part I in Mathematical Physics???A Modern Introduction to Its Foundations 
Author(s)  Scott, Robert B 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XV, 178 p. 2 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers supporting material for the comprehensive textbook Mathematical Physics???A Modern Introduction to Its Foundations authored by Sadri Hassani. The book covers mathematical preliminaries and all of Part I in Hassani???s textbook. The subjects covered here include the key topics necessary for physicists to form a solid mathematical foundation: vectors and linear maps, algebras, operators, matrices, and spectral decomposition. In particular, the vector space concept is a central unifying theme in later chapters of Hassani???s textbook. Detailed solutions are provided to one third of the endofchapter exercises in the first six chapters of his text. The present volume helps upperundergraduate and early postgraduate physics students deepen their understanding of the mathematics that they encounter in physics, learn physics more efficiently, and use mathematics with more confidence and creativity. The content is thus presented rigorously but remains accessible tophysics students. New exercises are also proposed, some with solutions, some without, so that the total number of unsolved exercises remains unchanged. They are chosen to help explain difficult concepts, amplify key points in Hassani's textbook, or make further connections with applications in physics. Taken together with Hassani's work, the two form a selfcontained set and the solutions make detailed reference to Hassani's text. The solutions also refer to other mathematics and physics textbooks, providing entry points to further literature that finds a useful place in the physicist's personal library
