Title  Relativistic ManyBody Theory : A New FieldTheoretical Approach 
Author(s)  Lindgren, Ingvar 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVII, 406 p. 151 illus., 5 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This revised second edition of the author???s classic text offers readers a comprehensively updated review of relativistic atomic manybody theory, covering the many developments in the field since the publication of the original title. In particular, a new final section extends the scope to cover the evaluation of QED effects for dynamical processes. The treatment of the book is based upon quantumfield theory, and demonstrates that when the procedure is carried to all orders of perturbation theory, twoparticle systems are fully compatible with the relativistically covariant BetheSalpeter equation. This procedure can be applied to arbitrary openshell systems, in analogy with the standard manybody theory, and it is also applicable to systems with more than two particles. Presently existing theoretical procedures for treating atomic systems are, in several cases, insufficient to explain the accurate experimental data recently obtained, particularly for highly charged ions. The main text is divided into three parts. In Part I, the standard timeindependent and timedependent perturbation procedures are reviewed. This includes a new section at the end of chapter 2 concerning the socalled ???Fockspace procedure??? or ???Coulombonly procedure??? for relativisticQED calculations. This is a procedure on an intermediate level, frequently u sed in recent time by chemists on molecular systems, where a full QED treatment is out of question. Part II describes three methods for QED calculations, a) the standard Smatrix formulation, b) the Twotimes Green???sfunction method, developed by the St Petersburg Atomic Theory group, and c) the Covariantevolution operator (CEO) method, recently developed by the Gothenburg Atomic Theory group. In Part III, the CEO method is combined with electron correlation to arbitrary order to a unified MBPTQED procedure. The new Part IV includes two new chapters dealing with dynamical properties and how QED effects can be evaluated for such processes. This part is much needed as there has been an increasing interest in the study of QED effects for such processes. All methods treated in the book are illustrated with numerical examples, making it a text suitable for advanced students new to the field and a useful reference for established researchers

Title  The Electron Mass and Calcium Isotope Shifts : HighPrecision Measurements of BoundElectron gFactors of Highly Charged Ions 
Author(s)  K??hlerLanges, Florian 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 168 p. 69 illus., 24 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents the first isotopeshift measurement of boundelectron gfactors of highly charged ions and determines the most precise value of the electron mass in atomic mass units, which exceeds the value in the literature by a factor of 13. As the lightest fundamental massive particle, the electron is one of nature???s few central building blocks. A precise knowledge of its intrinsic properties, such as its mass, is mandatory for the most accurate tests in physics  the Quantum Electrodynamics tests that describe one of the four established fundamental interactions in the universe. The underlying measurement principle combines a highprecision measurement of the Larmortocyclotron frequency ratio on a single hydrogenlike carbon ion studied in a Penning trap with very accurate calculations of the socalled boundelectron gfactor. Here, the gfactors of the valence electrons of two lithiumlike calcium isotopes have been measured with relative uncertainties of a few 10^{10}, constituting an as yet unrivaled level of precision for lithiumlike ions. These calcium isotopes provide a unique system across the entire nuclear chart to test the pure relativistic nuclear recoil effect

Title  HighEnergy Atomic Physics 
Author(s)  Drukarev, Evgeny G;Mikhailov, A.I 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 384 p. 55 illus., 5 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This selfcontained text introduces readers to the field of highenergy atomic physics  a new regime of photonatom interactions in which the photon energies significantly exceed the atomic or molecular binding energies, and which opened up with the recent advent of new synchrotron sources. From a theoretical point of view, a smallparameter characteristic of the bound system emerged, making it possible to perform analytic perturbative calculations that can in turn serve as benchmarks for more powerful numerical computations. The first part of the book introduces readers to the foundations of this new regime and its theoretical treatment. In particular, the validity of the smallparameter perturbation expansion and of the lowestorder approximation is critically reviewed. The following chapters then apply these insights to various atomic processes, such as photoionization as a manybody problem, dominant mechanisms for the production of ions at higher energies, Compton scattering and ionization accompanied by creation of ee+ pairs, and the photoionization of endohedral atoms (e.g. fullerene). Last but not least, the computationally challenging transitions in the electron shell during certain types of nuclear decays are investigated in detail

Title  Problems in Quantum Mechanics : with Solutions 
Author(s)  d'Emilio, Emilio;Picasso, Luigi E 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XI, 383 p. 100 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This second edition of an extremely wellreceived book presents more than 250 nonrelativistic quantum mechanics problems of varying difficulty with the aim of providing students didactic material of proven value, allowing them to test their comprehension and mastery of each subject. The coverage is extremely broad, from themes related to the crisis of classical physics through achievements within the framework of modern atomic physics to lively debated, intriguing aspects relating to, for example, the EPR paradox, the AharonovBohm effect, and quantum teleportation. Compared with the first edition, a variety of improvements have been made and additional topics of interest included, especially focusing on elementary potential scattering. The problems themselves range from standard and straightforward ones to those that are complex but can be considered essential because they address questions of outstanding importance or aspects typically overlooked in primers. The book offers students both an excellent tool for independent learning and a readyreference guide they can return to later in their careers

Title  Molecular Symmetry, SuperRotation, and Semiclassical Motion : New Ideas for Solving Old Problems 
Author(s)  Schmiedt, Hanno 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  IX, 171 p. 29 illus., 25 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a range of fundamentally new approaches to solving problems involving traditional molecular models. Fundamental molecular symmetry is shown to open new avenues for describing molecular dynamics beyond standard perturbation techniques. Traditional concepts used to describe molecular dynamics are based on a few fundamental assumptions, the ballandstick picture of molecular structure and the respective perturbative treatment of different kinds of couplings between otherwise separate motions.?? The book points out the conceptual limits of these models and, by focusing on the most essential idea of theoretical physics, namely symmetry, shows how to overcome those limits by introducing fundamentally new concepts. The book begins with an introduction to molecular symmetry in general, followed by a discussion of nuclear spin symmetry. Here, a new correlation between identical particle exchange and spin angular momentum symmetry of nuclei is exhibited. The central part of the book is the discussion of extremely floppy molecules, which are not describable in the framework of traditional theories. The book introduces a fundamentally new approach to describing the molecular dynamics of these molecules  the superrotor model, which is based on a fivedimensional symmetry that has never been observed in molecules before. By applying the superrotor theory to the prototype of floppy molecules, protonated methane, this model can consistently predict the symmetry and energy of lowenergy states, which were characterized experimentally only a few years ago. The theoretical predictions agree with the experimental results, which makes the prospect of further developing the superrotor theory and applying it to other molecules a promising one. In the final section, the book also covers the topic of ultrafast rotations, where usual quantum calculations reach their natural limits. A semiclassical method for determining rotational energies, developed in the early 1990s, is shown to be attachable to quantum calculations of the vibrational states. This new combined method is suitable for efficiently calculating rovibrational energies, even for molecular states with large angular momentum.??

Title  Dualities, Helicity Amplitudes, and Little Conformal Symmetry 
Author(s)  Colwell, Kitran Macey M 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XV, 107 p. 15 illus., 5 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis develops two exciting areas of particle physics research. It applies the recent new insights??about the usefulness of helicity amplitudes in understanding gauge theory to the longstanding effort to understand theories with both electric and magnetic charges. It is known that for some??supersymmetric theories there is an exact duality that relates two descriptions of the physics, one where??the electric charges are weakly coupled and another where the electric charges are strongly coupled. The calculations in this thesis suggest that this duality can also hold in the lowenergy limit of nonsupersymmetric??gauge theories. The idea of addressing the hierarchy problem of the standard model??Higgs mechanism using conformal symmetry is also explored. Analogously to ???Little Higgs??? models,??where divergences are cancelled only at oneloop order, models are studied that have infrared conformal??fixed points which related gauge and Yukawa couplings, allowing for a cancellation between seemingly??unrelated quantum loop diagrams

Title  The Generalized Multipole Technique for Light Scattering : Recent Developments 
Author(s)  Wriedt, Thomas;Eremin, Yuri 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVI, 249 p. 103 illus., 41 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the Generalized Multipole Technique as a fast and powerful theoretical and computation tool to simulate light scattering by nonspherical particles. It also demonstrates the considerable potential of the method. In recent years, the concept has been applied in new fields, such as simulation of electron energy loss spectroscopy and has been used to extend other methods, like the nullfield method, making it more widely applicable. The authors discuss particular implementations of the GMT methods, such as the Discrete Sources Method (DSM), Multiple Multipole Program (MMP), the Method of Auxiliary Sources (MAS), the Filamentary Current Method (FCM), the Method of Fictitious Sources (MFS) and the NullField Method with Discrete Sources (NFMDS). The Generalized Multipole Technique is a surfacebased method to find the solution of a boundaryvalue problem for a given differential equation by expanding the fields in terms of fundamental or other singular solutions of this equation. The amplitudes of these fundamental solutions are determined from the boundary condition at the particle surface. Electromagnetic and light scattering by particles or systems of particles has been the subject of intense research in various scientific and engineering fields, including astronomy, optics, meteorology, remote sensing, optical particle sizing and electromagnetics, which has led to the development of a large number of modelling methods based on the Generalized Multipole Technique for quantitative evaluation of electromagnetic scattering by particles of various shapes and compositions. The book describes these methods in detail

Title  High Precision Optical Spectroscopy and Quantum State Selected Photodissociation of Ultracold 88Sr2 Molecules in an Optical Lattice 
Author(s)  McDonald, Mickey 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVII, 183 p. 60 illus., 57 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis unites the fields of optical atomic clocks and ultracold molecular science, laying the foundation for optical molecular measurements of unprecedented precision. Building upon optical manipulation techniques developed by the atomic clock community, this work delves into attaining surgical control of molecular quantum states. The thesis develops two experimental observables that one can measure with opticallatticetrapped ultracold molecules: extremely narrow optical spectra, and angular distributions of photofragments that are ejected when the diatomic molecules are dissociated by laser light pulses. The former allows molecular spectroscopy approaching the level of atomic clocks, leading into molecular metrology and tests of fundamental physics. The latter opens the field of ultracold chemistry through observation of quantum effects such as matterwave interference of photofragments and tunneling through reaction barriers. The thesis also describes a discovery of a new method of thermometry that can be used near absolute zero temperatures for particles lacking cycling transitions, solving a longstanding experimental problem in atomic and molecular physics
