Title  Collapse of Metastability : Dynamics of FirstOrder Phase Transition 
Author(s)  Miyashita, Seiji 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  XI, 259 p. 101 illus., 49 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  To understand phenomena in nature, it is important to focus not only on properties of stationary states, but also their changes in time, that is, the dynamics between bistable states. This book reviews the mechanics of firstorder phase transitions and discusses relaxation and collapses of metastable states from various viewpoints, including Kramers' method for the lifetime of metastability, Langer???s analysis on the singularity, effects of thermal fluctuation studied by N??el and Brown, and eigenvalue structures of the transfermatrix for the phase transitions. The book also goes into the mechanics of metastability in quantum systems from the viewpoints of the eigenvalue problem of the Hamiltonian and the Liouvillian for a dynamical process and discusses relations between quantum tunneling processes and metastability therein. Lastly, the coercivity of magnets consisting of an ensemble of grains is reviewed. The book is beneficial for those new in the field as a primer on firstorder phase transition from modern perspectives. The comprehensive content offers overviews of related topics and allows readers to quickly catch up with developments in the field

Title  Perturbative Aspects of the Deconfinement Transition : Beyond the FaddeevPopov Paradigm 
Author(s)  Reinosa, Urko 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVII, 270 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers an original view of the color confinement/deconfinement transition that occurs in nonabelian gauge theories at high temperature and/or densities. It is grounded on the fact that the standard FaddeevPopov gaugefixing procedure in the Landau gauge is incomplete. The proper analysis of the low energy properties of nonabelian theories in this gauge requires, therefore, the extension of the gaugefixing procedure, beyond the FaddeevPopov recipe. The author reviews various applications of one such extension, based on the CurciFerrari model, with a special focus on the confinement/deconfinement transition, first in the case of pure YangMills theory, and then, in a formal regime of Quantum Chromodynamics where all quarks are considered heavy. He shows that most qualitative aspects and also many quantitative features of the deconfinement transition can be accounted for within the model, with only one additional parameter. Moreover, these features emerge in a systematic and controlled perturbative expansion, as opposed to what would happen in a perturbative expansion within the FaddeevPopov model. The book is also intended as a thorough and pedagogical introduction to background field gauge techniques at finite temperature and/or density. In particular, it offers a new and promising view on the way these techniques might be applied at finite temperature. The material aims at graduate students or researchers who wish to deepen their understanding of the confinement/deconfinement transition from an analytical perspective. Basic knowledge of gauge theories at finite temperature is required, although the text is designed in a selfcontained manner, with most concepts and tools introduced when needed. At the end of each chapter, a series of exercises is proposed to master the subject

Title  Complex Media and Percolation Theory 
Author(s)  Sahimi, Muhammad;Hunt, Allen G 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer US, 2021. 
Description  152 illus., 75 illus. in color. eReference : online resource 
Abstract Note  Percolation theory describes the effects of the connectivity of microscopic or smallscale elements of a complex medium to its macroscopic or largescale properties. It also describes the conditions under which there may be a continuously connected path of local elements across the medium. The point at which the path is formed is called the percolation threshold. Percolation theory also predicts that many macroscopic properties of complex media follow universal power laws near the percolation threshold that are independent of many microscopic features of such media. There are many applications of percolation theory across the natural sciences, from porous materials, to composite solids, complex networks, and biological systems. This book presents the essential elements of percolation theory, covers the problem of calculating the exponents that characterize the power laws that the percolation quantities follow near the percolation threshold, provides a clear description of the geometry of percolation clusters of the connected paths, and addresses several variations of percolation theory. In particular, bootstrap percolation, explosive percolation, and invasion percolation are featured, which expand the range of natural systems to which percolation may be applicable. In addition, coverage includes several important applications of percolation theory to a range of phenomena, ranging from electrical conductivity, thermopower, the Hall effect, and photoconductivity of disordered semiconductors, to flow, transport and reaction in porous media, geochemistry, biology, and ecology

Title  Enhanced Polarisation Control and Extreme Electric Fields : Advances in Terahertz Spectroscopy Applied to Anisotropic Materials and Magnetic Phase Transitions 
Author(s)  Mosley, Connor Devyn William 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XV, 115 p. 44 illus., 43 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis reports advances in terahertz timedomain spectroscopy, relating to the development of new techniques and components that enhance the experimentalist???s control over the terahertz polarisation state produced by photoconductive emitters. It describes how utilising the dynamic magnetoelectric response at THz frequencies, in the form of electromagnons, can probe material properties at a transition between two magnetically ordered phases. Additionally, preliminary investigations into the properties of materials exposed to extreme terahertz optical electric fields are reported. The work presented in this thesis may have immediate impacts on the study of anisotropic media at THz frequencies, with photoconductive emitters and detectors being the most commonly used components for commercially available terahertz spectroscopy and imaging systems, and by providing a new way to study the nature of magnetic phase transitions in multiferroics. In the longer term the increased understanding of multiferroics yielded by ultrafast spectroscopic methods, including terahertz timedomain spectroscopy, may help develop new magnetoelectric and multiferroic materials for applications such as spintronics

Title  Spin Glasses : Criticality and Energy Landscapes 
Author(s)  Baity Jesi, Marco 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XXIX, 221 p. 71 illus., 24 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis addresses the surprising features of zerotemperature statics and dynamics of several spin glass models, including correlations between soft spins that arise spontaneously during avalanches, and the discovery of localized states that involve the presence of twolevel systems. It also presents the only detailed historiographical research on the spin glass theory. Despite the extreme simplicity of their definition, spin glasses display a wide variety of nontrivial behaviors that are not yet fully understood. In this thesis the author sheds light on some of these, focusing on both the search for phase transitions under perturbations of Hamiltonians and the zerotemperature properties and responses to external stimuli. After introducing spin glasses and useful concepts on phase transitions and numerics, the results of two massive Monte Carlo campaigns on threedimensional systems are presented: The first of these examines the de Almeida???Thouless transition, and proposes a new finitesize scaling ansatz, which accelerates the convergence to the thermodynamic limit. The second reconstructs the phase diagram of the Heisenberg spin glass with random exchange anisotropy.

Title  Defect Evolution in Cosmology and Condensed Matter : Quantitative Analysis with the VelocityDependent OneScale Model 
Author(s)  Martins, C.J.A.P 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  IX, 118 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book sheds new light on topological defects in widely differing systems, using the VelocityDependent OneScale Model to better understand their evolution. Topological defects ??? cosmic strings, monopoles, domain walls or others  necessarily form at cosmological (and condensed matter) phase transitions. If they are stable and longlived they will be fossil relics of higherenergy physics. Understanding their behaviour and consequences is a key part of any serious attempt to understand the universe, and this requires modelling their evolution. The velocitydependent onescale model is the only fully quantitative model of defect network evolution, and the canonical model in the field. This book provides a review of the model, explaining its physical content and describing its broad range of applicability

Title  Theoretical Study on Correlation Effects in Topological Matter 
Author(s)  Isobe, Hiroki 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2017. 
Description  XII, 136 p. 46 illus., 41 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis elucidates electron correlation effects in topological matter whose electronic states hold nontrivial topological properties robust against small perturbations. In addition to a comprehensive introduction to topological matter, this thesis provides a new perspective on correlated topological matter. The book comprises three subjects, in which electron correlations in different forms are considered. The first focuses on Coulomb interactions for massless Dirac fermions. Using a perturbative approach, the author reveals emergent Lorentz invariance in a lowenergy limit and discusses how to probe the Lorentz invariance experimentally. The second subject aims to show a principle for synthesizing topological insulators with common, light elements. The interplay between the spin???orbit interaction and electron correlation is considered, and Hund's rule and electron filling are consequently found to play a key role for a strong spin???orbit interaction important for topological insulators. The last subject is classification of topological crystalline insulators in the presence of electron correlation. Unlike noninteracting topological insulators, such two and threedimensional correlated insulators with mirror symmetry are demonstrated to be characterized, respectively, by the Z4 and Z8 group by using the bosonization technique and a geometrical consideration
