Title  Bogoliubovde Gennes Method and Its Applications 
Author(s)  Zhu, JianXin 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XI, 188 p. 50 illus., 33 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The purpose of this book is to provide an elementary yet systematic description of the Bogoliubovde Gennes (BdG) equations, their unique symmetry properties and their relation to Green???s function theory. Specifically, it introduces readers to the supercell technique for the solutions of the BdG equations, as well as other related techniques for more rapidly solving the equations in practical applications. The BdG equations are derived from a microscopic model Hamiltonian with an effective pairing interaction and fully capture the local electronic structure through selfconsistent solutions via exact diagonalization. This approach has been successfully generalized to study many aspects of conventional and unconventional superconductors with inhomogeneities ??? including defects, disorder or the presence of a magnetic field ??? and becomes an even more attractive choice when the firstprinciples information of a typical superconductor is incorporated via the construction of a lowenergy tightbinding model. Further, the lattice BdG approach is essential when theoretical results for local electronic states around such defects are compared with the scanning tunneling microscopy measurements. Altogether, these lectures provide a timely primer for graduate students and nonspecialist researchers, while also offering a useful reference guide for experts in the field

Title  The Many Faces of Maxwell, Dirac and Einstein Equations : A Clifford Bundle Approach 
Author(s)  Rodrigues, Jr, Waldyr A;Capelas de Oliveira, Edmundo 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 587 p. 14 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is an exposition of the algebra and calculus of differential forms, of the Clifford and SpinClifford bundle formalisms, and of vistas to a formulation of important concepts of differential geometry indispensable for an indepth understanding of spacetime physics. The formalism discloses the hidden geometrical nature of spinor fields. Maxwell, Dirac and Einstein fields are shown to have representatives by objects of the same mathematical nature, namely sections of an appropriate Clifford bundle. This approach reveals unity in diversity and suggests relationships that are hidden in the standard formalisms and opens new paths for research. This thoroughly revised second edition also adds three new chapters: on the Clifford bundle approach to the Riemannian or semiRiemannian differential geometry of branes; on Komar currents in the context of the General Relativity theory; and an analysis of the similarities and main differences between Dirac, Majorana and ELKO spinor fields. The exercises with solutions, the comprehensive list of mathematical symbols, and the list of acronyms and abbreviations are provided for selfstudy for students as well as for classes. From the reviews of the first edition: ???The text is written in a very readable manner and is complemented with plenty of workedout exercises which are in the style of extended examples. ... their book could also serve as a textbook for graduate students in physics or mathematics."

Title  Oscillations of Disks 
Author(s)  Kato, Shoji 
Publication  Tokyo, Springer Japan, 2016. 
Description  XV, 261 p. 49 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the current state of research on disk oscillation theory, focusing on relativistic disks and tidally deformed disks. Since the launch of the Rossi Xray Timing Explorer (RXTE) in 1996, many highfrequency quasiperiodic oscillations (HFQPOs) have been observed in Xray binaries. Subsequently, similar quasiperiodic oscillations have been found in such relativistic objects as microquasars, ultraluminous Xray sources, and galactic nuclei. One of the most promising explanations of their origin is based on oscillations in relativistic disks, and a new field called discoseismology is currently developing. After reviewing observational aspects, the book presents the basic characteristics of disk oscillations, especially focusing on those in relativistic disks. Relativistic disks are essentially different from Newtonian disks in terms of several basic characteristics of their disk oscillations, including the radial distributions of epicyclic frequencies. In order to understand the basic processes of disk oscillations, studies on binary systems are of importance, as they offer valuable information on wave???wave coupling processes in disk oscillations. Accordingly, some characteristics of oscillations in deformed disks are also presented in this book. The book consists of two parts. Points covered in Part I include, for instance, the basic characteristics of disk oscillations, classification of oscillation modes, and trapping of oscillations. In Part II, the focus is mainly on excitation processes of oscillations, while applications to observations are also discussed

Title  Predictability of Chaotic Dynamics : A Finitetime Lyapunov Exponents Approach 
Author(s)  Vallejo, Juan C;Sanjuan, Miguel A. F 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XV, 136 p. 47 illus., 22 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is primarily concerned with the computational aspects of predictability of dynamical systems ??? in particular those where observation, modeling and computation are strongly interdependent. Unlike with physical systems under control in laboratories, for instance in celestial mechanics, one is confronted with the observation and modeling of systems without the possibility of altering the key parameters of the objects studied. Therefore, the numerical simulations offer an essential tool for analyzing these systems. With the widespread use of computer simulations to solve complex dynamical systems, the reliability of the numerical calculations is of everincreasing interest and importance. This reliability is directly related to the regularity and instability properties of the modeled flow. In this interdisciplinary scenario, the underlying physics provide the simulated models, nonlinear dynamics provides their chaoticity and instability properties, and the computer sciences provide the actual numerical implementation. This book introduces and explores precisely this link between the models and their predictability characterization based on concepts derived from the field of nonlinear dynamics, with a focus on the finitetime Lyapunov exponents approach. The method is illustrated using a number of wellknown continuous dynamical systems, including the Contopoulos, H??nonHeiles and R??ssler systems. To help students and newcomers quickly learn to apply these techniques, the appendix provides descriptions of the algorithms used throughout the text and details how to implement them in order to solve a given continuous dynamical system

Title  LQG for the Bewildered : The SelfDual Approach Revisited 
Author(s)  Vaid, Deepak;BilsonThompson, Sundance 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  IX, 138 p. 16 illus., 4 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This primer offers a concise introduction to Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG)  a theoretical framework for uniting Quantum Mechanics (QM) with General Relativity (GR). The emphasis is on the physical aspects of the framework and its historical development in terms of selfdual variables, still most suited for a first, pedagogical encounter with LQG. The text starts by reviewing GR and the very basics of Quantum Field Theory (QFT), and then explains in a concise and clear manner the steps leading from the EinsteinHilbert action for gravity to the construction of the quantum states of geometry, known as spinnetworks, and which provide the basis for the kinematical Hilbert space of quantum general relativity. Along the way the various associated concepts of tetrads, spinconnection and holonomies are introduced. Having thus provided a minimal introduction to the LQG framework, some applications to the problems of black hole entropy and of quantum cosmology are briefly surveyed. Last but not least, a list of the most common criticisms of LQG is presented, which are then tackled one by one in order to convince the reader of the physical viability of the theory. A set of appendices provides accessible introductions to several key notions such as the PeterWeyl theorem, duality of differential forms and Regge calculus, among others. The presentation is aimed at graduate students and researchers who have some familiarity with the tools of QM and GR, but are intimidated by the technicalities required to browse through the existing LQG literature. This primer aims at making the formalism appear a little less bewildering to the uninitiated and helps lower the barrier for entry into the field

Author(s)  Timberlake, Todd Keene;Mixon, J. Wilson 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2016. 
Description  XI, 258 p. 156 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book guides undergraduate students in the use of Maxima???a computer algebra system???in solving problems in classical mechanics. It functions well as a supplement to a typical classical mechanics textbook. When it comes to problems that are too difficult to solve by hand, computer algebra systems that can perform symbolic mathematical manipulations are a valuable tool. Maxima is particularly attractive in that it is opensource, multipleplatform software that students can download and install free of charge. Lessons learned and capabilities developed using Maxima are easily transferred to other, proprietary software

Title  Chaos Detection and Predictability 
Author(s)  Skokos, Charalampos (Haris);Gottwald, Georg A;Laskar, Jacques 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016. 
Description  XI, 269 p. 122 illus., 44 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Distinguishing chaoticity from regularity in deterministic dynamical systems and specifying the subspace of the phase space in which instabilities are expected to occur is of utmost importance in as disparate areas as astronomy, particle physics and climate dynamics. To address these issues there exists a plethora of methods for chaos detection and predictability. The most commonly employed technique for investigating chaotic dynamics, i.e. the computation of Lyapunov exponents, however, may suffer a number of problems and drawbacks, for example when applied to noisy experimental data. In the last two decades, several novel methods have been developed for the fast and reliable determination of the regular or chaotic nature of orbits, aimed at overcoming the shortcomings of more traditional techniques. This set of lecture notes and tutorial reviews serves as an introduction to and overview of modern chaos detection and predictability techniques for graduate students and nonspecialists. The book covers theoretical and computational aspects of traditional methods to calculate Lyapunov exponents, as well as of modern techniques like the Fast (FLI), the Orthogonal (OFLI) and the Relative (RLI) Lyapunov Indicators, the Mean Exponential Growth factor of Nearby Orbits (MEGNO), the Smaller (SALI) and the Generalized (GALI) Alignment Index and the ???01??? test for chaos
