Title  Water : Basic Science 
Author(s)  Meng, Sheng;Wang, Enge 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  VIII, 335 p. 185 illus., 141 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book highlights the fundamentals for understanding the essential problems and latest progresses in basic water science. Water is the most abundant, fundamental and important matter in nature. Arguably it is also the material that human beings study the most but misunderstand the most. Compared with the environmental science and engineering research activities on water resources, water pollution and water usage closely related to social problems at the macro level, basic scientific research on water at the molecular level has just emerged, the impact of which is not fully recognized yet. This book is devoted to introducing some important advances in the field of basic water science in past decades, with a particular emphasis on recent results on water and the interactions between water and solid surfaces at the molecular level. Starting from introducing concepts and popular theoretical and experimental methods for basic water research, this book mainly focuses on the atomic composition, electronic structure, and physicochemical properties of water molecules, water clusters and water layers (including surface water layers and water surface layers), rules for water adsorption on metals, oxides, and other typical solid surfaces such as salt, as well as the microscopic processes and mechanisms of water diffusion, wetting, decomposition and phase transformations under a variety of conditions. It is a good reference book for students and researchers in waterrelated science

Title  Modern Physics : Introduction to Statistical Mechanics, Relativity, and Quantum Physics 
Author(s)  Salasnich, Luca 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  X, 194 p. 10 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers an introduction to statistical mechanics, special relativity, and quantum physics. It is based on the lecture notes prepared for the onesemester course of "Quantum Physics" belonging to the Bachelor of Science in Material Sciences at the University of Padova. The first chapter briefly reviews the ideas of classical statistical mechanics introduced by James Clerk Maxwell, Ludwig Boltzmann, Willard Gibbs, and others. The second chapter is devoted to the special relativity of Albert Einstein. In the third chapter, it is historically analyzed the quantization of light due to Max Planck and Albert Einstein, while the fourth chapter discusses the Niels Bohr quantization of the energy levels and the electromagnetic transitions. The fifth chapter investigates the Schrodinger equation, which was obtained by Erwin Schrodinger from the idea of Louis De Broglie to associate to each particle a quantum wavelength. Chapter Six describes the basic axioms of quantum mechanics, which were formulated in the seminal books of Paul Dirac and John von Neumann. In chapter seven, there are several important application of quantum mechanics: the quantum particle in a box, the quantum particle in the harmonic potential, the quantum tunneling, the stationary perturbation theory, and the timedependent perturbation theory. Chapter Eight is devoted to the study of quantum atomic physics with special emphasis on the spin of the electron, which needs the Dirac equation for a rigorous theoretical justification. In the ninth chapter, it is explained the quantum mechanics of many identical particles at zero temperature, while in Chapter Ten the discussion is extended to many quantum particles at finite temperature by introducing and using the quantum statistical mechanics. The four appendices on Dirac delta function, complex numbers, Fourier transform, and differential equations are a useful mathematical aid for the reader

Title  Probing NonEquilibrium Dynamics in TwoDimensional Quantum Gases 
Author(s)  Chen, ChengAn 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIII, 148 p. 188 illus., 131 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis explores the physics of nonequilibrium quantum dynamics in homogeneous twodimensional (2D) quantum gases. Ultracold quantum gases driven out of equilibrium have been prominent platforms for studying quantum manybody physics. However, probing nonequilibrium dynamics in conventionally trapped, inhomogeneous atomic quantum gases has been a challenging task because coexisting mass transport and spreading of quantum correlations often complicate experimental analyses. In this work, the author solves this technical hurdle by producing ultracold cesium atoms in a quasi2D optical box potential. The exquisite optical trap allows one to remove density inhomogeneity in a degenerate quantum gas and control its dimensionality. The author also details the development of a highresolution, in situ imaging technique to monitor the evolution of collective excitations and quantum transport down to atomic shotnoise, and at the length scale of elementary collective excitations. Meanwhile, tunable Feshbach resonances in ultracold cesium atoms permit precise and dynamical control of interactions with high temporal and even spatial resolutions. By employing these stateoftheart techniques, the author performed interaction quenches to control the generation and evolution of quasiparticles in quantum gases, presenting the first direct measurement of quantum entanglement between interaction quench generated quasiparticle pairs in an atomic superfluid. Quenching to attractive interactions, this work shows stimulated emission of quasiparticles, leading to amplified density waves and fragmentation, forming 2D matterwave Townes solitons that were previously considered impossible to form in equilibrium due to their instability. This thesis unveils a set of scaleinvariant and universal quench dynamics and provides unprecedented tools to explore quantum entanglement transport in a homogenous quantum gas

Title  Few Body Dynamics, Efimov Effect and Halo Nuclei 
Author(s)  Bhasin, Vidya Sagar;Mazumdar, Indranil 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XVII, 127 p. 38 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents an overview of the different fewbody techniques developed in nuclear physics and their applications to explore the structural properties of neutronrich unstable nuclei, the socalled halo nuclei. Formal theory of two and threebody scattering are discussed in a compact and abridged form to initiate the beginners who want to investigate the problems of halo nuclei within the framework of threebody models. Readers gain indepth knowledge about the methods involved to solve the two and threebody scattering problem and a special focus is put on the Faddeev approach. In this sense, the authors address both the graduate students and senior researchers. Subsequently, a detailed analysis of the Efimov effect in threebody systems is presented and the search for the effect in atomic nuclei, both Borromean and nonBorromean is addressed. The book also presents a detailed account of how to analyze, within the framework of a 3body approach and using realistic short range forces, the structural properties of halo nuclei. Finally, the authors discuss the recent progress in effective field theory by setting up the integral equations for 3body scattering and applying it to study low energy scattering of neutrons off halo nuclear targets

Title  Characterizing Entanglement and Quantum Correlations Constrained by Symmetry 
Author(s)  Tura i Brugu??s, Jordi 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXV, 237 p. 17 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis focuses on the study and characterization of entanglement and nonlocal correlations constrained under symmetries. It includes original results as well as detailed methods and explanations for a number of different threads of research: positive partial transpose (PPT) entanglement in the symmetric states; a novel, experimentally friendly method to detect nonlocal correlations in manybody systems; the nonequivalence between entanglement and nonlocality; and elemental monogamies of correlations. Entanglement and nonlocal correlations constitute two fundamental resources for quantum information processing, as they allow novel tasks that are otherwise impossible in a classical scenario. However, their elusive characterization is still a central problem in quantum information theory. The main reason why such a fundamental issue remains a formidable challenge lies in the exponential growth in complexity of the Hilbert space as well as the space of multipartite correlations. Physical systems of interest, on the other hand, display symmetries that can be exploited to reduce this complexity, opening the possibility that some of these questions become tractable for such systems

Title  Quantum Theory and Statistical Thermodynamics : Principles and Worked Examples 
Author(s)  Hertel, Peter 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 368 p. 27 illus., 17 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook presents a concise yet detailed introduction to quantum physics. Concise, because it condenses the essentials to a few principles. Detailed, because these few principles ??? necessarily rather abstract ??? are illustrated by several telling examples. A fairly complete overview of the conventional quantum mechanics curriculum is the primary focus, but the huge field of statistical thermodynamics is covered as well. The text explains why a few key discoveries shattered the prevailing broadly accepted classical view of physics. First, matter appears to consist of particles which, when propagating, resemble waves. Consequently, some observable properties cannot be measured simultaneously with arbitrary precision. Second, events with single particles are not determined, but are more or less probable. The essence of this is that the observable properties of a physical system are to be represented by noncommuting mathematical objects instead of real numbers. Chapters on exceptionally simple, but highly instructive examples illustrate this abstract formulation of quantum physics. The simplest atoms, ions, and molecules are explained, describing their interaction with electromagnetic radiation as well as the scattering of particles. A short introduction to many particle physics with an outlook on quantum fields follows. There is a chapter on maximally mixed states of very large systems, that is statistical thermodynamics. The following chapter on the linear response to perturbations provides a link to the material equations of continuum physics. Mathematical details which would hinder the flow of the main text have been deferred to an appendix. The book addresses university students of physics and related fields. It will attract graduate students and professionals in particular who wish to systematize or refresh their knowledge of quantum physics when studying specialized texts on solid state and materials physics, advanced optics, and other modern fields

Title  Artificial Gauge Fields with Ultracold Atoms in Optical Lattices 
Author(s)  Aidelsburger, Monika 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 172 p. 76 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This work reports on the generation of artificial magnetic fields with ultracold atoms in optical lattices using laserassisted tunneling, as well as on the first Chernnumber measurement in a nonelectronic system. It starts with an introduction to the Hofstadter model, which describes the dynamics of charged particles on a square lattice subjected to strong magnetic fields. This model exhibits energy bands with nonzero topological invariants called Chern numbers, a property that is at the origin of the quantum Hall effect. The main part of the work discusses the realization of analog systems with ultracold neutral atoms using laserassistedtunneling techniques both from a theoretical and experimental point of view. Staggered, homogeneous and spindependent flux distributions are generated and characterized using twodimensional optical superlattice potentials. Additionally their topological properties are studied via the observation of bulk topological currents. The experimental techniques presented here offer a unique setting for studying topologically nontrivial systems with ultracold atoms

Title  Multispecies Systems in Optical Lattices : From Orbital Physics in Excited Bands to Effects of Disorder 
Author(s)  Pinheiro, Fernanda 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 126 p. 44 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This highly interdisciplinary thesis covers a wide range of topics relating to the interface of cold atoms, quantum simulation, quantum magnetism and disorder. With a selfcontained presentation, it provides a broad overview of the rapidly evolving area of cold atoms and is of interest to both undergraduates and researchers working in the field. Starting with a general introduction to the physics of cold atoms and optical lattices, it extends the theory to that of systems with different multispecies atoms. It advances the theory of manybody quantum systems in excited bands (of optical lattices) through an extensive study of the properties of both the meanfield and strongly correlated regimes. Particular emphasis is given to the context of quantum simulation, where as shown here, the orbital degree of freedom in excited bands allows the study of exotic models of magnetism not easily achievable with the previous alternative systems. In addition, it proposes a new model Hamiltonian that serves as a quantum simulator of various disordered systems in different symmetry classes that can easily be reproduced experimentally. This is of great interest, especially for the study of disorder in 2D quantum systems.
