Title  Primer for Point and Space Groups 
Author(s)  Liboff, Richard 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2004. 
Description  XIV, 220 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This text stems from a course I have taught a number of times, attended by students of material science, electrical engineering, physics, chemistry, physical chemistry and applied mathematics. It is intended as an intro?? ductory discourse to give the reader a first encounter with group theory. The work concentrates on point and space groups as these groups have the principal application in technology. Here is an outline of the salient features of the chapters. In Chapter 1, basic notions and definitions are introduced including that of Abelian groups, cyclic groups, Sylow's theorems, Lagrange's subgroup theorem and the rearrangement theorem. In Chapter 2, the concepts of classes and direct products are discussed. Applications of point groups to the Platonic solids and nonregular dual polyhedra are described. In Chapter 3, matrix representation of operators are introduced leading to the notion of irreducible representations ('irreps'). The Great Orthogonal?? ity Theorem (GOT) is also introduced, followed by six important rules relating to dimensions of irreps. Schur's lemma and character tables are described. Applications to quantum mechanics are discussed in Chapter 4 including descriptions of the rotation groups in two and three dimensions, the symmetric group, Cayley's theorem and Young diagrams. The relation of degeneracy of a quantum state of a system to dimensions of irreps of the group of symmetries of the system are discussed, as well as the basis properties of related eigenfunctions

Title  Symmetry Rules : How Science and Nature Are Founded on Symmetry 
Author(s)  Rosen, Joseph 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2008. 
Description  XIV, 305 p. 86 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  When we use science to describe and understand the world around us, we are in essence grasping nature through symmetry. In fact, modern theoretical physics suggests that symmetry is a, if not the, foundational principle of nature. Emphasizing the concepts, this book leads the reader coherently and comprehensively into the fertile field of symmetry and its applications. Among the most important applications considered are the fundamental forces of nature and the Universe. It is shown that the Universe cannot possess exact symmetry, which is a principle of fundamental significance. Curie's principle  which states that the symmetry of the effect is at least that of the cause  features prominently. An introduction to group theory, the mathematical language of symmetry, is included. This book will convince all interested readers of the importance of symmetry in science. Furthermore, it will serve as valuable background reading for all students in the physical sciences

Title  Metodi matematici della Fisica 
Author(s)  Cicogna, Giampaolo 
Publication  Milano, Springer Milan, 2015. 
Description  X, 258 pagg. 22 figg : online resource 
Abstract Note  Questo libro trae la sua origine dagli appunti preparati per le lezioni di Metodi Matematici della Fisica tenute al Dipartimento di Fisica dell'Universit?? di Pisa, e via via sistemati, raffinati e aggiornati nel corso di molti anni di insegnamento. L'intento generale ?? di fornire una presentazione per quanto possibile semplice e diretta dei metodi matematici basilari e rilevanti per la Fisica. Anche allo scopo di mantenere questo testo entro i limiti di un manuale di dimensioni contenute e di agevole consultazione, sono stati spesso sacrificati i dettagli tecnici delle dimostrazioni matematiche (o anzi le dimostrazioni per intero) e anche i formalismi eccessivi, che tendono a nascondere la vera natura dei problemi. Al contrario, si ?? cercato di evidenziare ??? per quanto possibile ??? le idee sottostanti e le motivazioni che conducono ai diversi procedimenti. L'obiettivo principale e quello di mettere in condizione chi ha letto questo libro di acquisire gli strumenti adatti e le conoscenze di base che gli permettano di affrontare senza difficolt?? anche testi pi?? avanzati e impegnativi. Questa nuova Edizione conserva la struttura generale della prima Edizione, ma ?? arricchita dall'inserimento di numerosi esempi (e controesempi), con nuove osservazioni e chiarimenti su tutti gli argomenti proposti: Serie di Fourier, Spazi di Hilbert, Operatori lineari, Funzioni di Variabile complessa, Trasformate di Fourier e di Laplace, Distribuzioni. Inoltre, le prime nozioni della Teoria dei Gruppi, delle Algebre di Lie e delle Simmetrie in Fisica (che erano confinate in una Appendice nella Prima Edizione) vengono ora proposte in una forma sensibilmente ampliata, con vari esempi in vista delle applicazioni alla Fisica. In particolare, due nuovi Capitoli sono dedicati allo studio delle propriet?? di simmetria dell'atomo di idrogeno e dell'oscillatore armonico in Meccanica Quantistica

Title  Line Groups in Physics : Theory and Applications to Nanotubes and Polymers 
Author(s)  Damnjanovic, Milan;Milosevic, Ivanka 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2010. 
Description  XII, 200 p. 38 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume gives a detailed and uptodate overview of the line groups, the groups that describe the symmetry of quasione dimensional crystals. Nanotubes, nanowires, nanosprings, nanorods, and polymers are examples remarkable enough to have kept nanoscience as a leading field within material science and solid state physics for more than fifteen years now. The authors present the mathematical foundations, including classifications of the line groups, quasi onedimensional crystals and quantum numbers, together with important applications. Extensive illustrations related to the physics of nanotubes make the book essential reading in this field above all. The book clearly demonstrates how symmetry is a most profound property of nature and contains valuable results that are published here for the first time

Title  Tensorial Methods and Renormalization in Group Field Theories 
Author(s)  Carrozza, Sylvain 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2014. 
Description  XV, 226 p. 51 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The main focus of this thesis is the mathematical structure of Group Field Theories (GFTs) from the point of view of renormalization theory. Such quantum field theories are found in approaches to quantum gravity related, on the one hand, to Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG) and, on the other, to matrix and tensor models. Background material on these topics, including conceptual and technical aspects, are introduced in the first chapters. The work then goes on to explain how the standard tools of Quantum Field Theory can be generalized to GFTs, and exploited to study the large cutoff behaviour and renormalization group transformations of the latter. Among the new results derived in this context are a proof of renormalizability of a threedimensional GFT with gauge group SU(2), which opens the way to applications of the formalism to quantum gravity

Title  Symmetry Theory in Molecular Physics with Mathematica : A new kind of tutorial book 
Author(s)  McClain, William 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2008. 
Description  XV, 689 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Prof. McClain has indeed produced "a new kind of tutorial book." It is written using the logic engine Mathematica, which permits concrete exploration and development of every concept involved in Symmetry Theory. The book may be read in your hand, or on a computer screen with Mathematica running behind it. It is intended for students of chemistry and molecular physics who need to know mathematical group theory and its applications, either for their own research or for understanding the language and concepts of their field. The book has three major parts: Part I begins with the most elementary symmetry concepts, showing how to express them in terms of matrices and permutations. These are then combined into mathematical groups. Many chemically important point groups are constructed and kept in a Mathematica package for easy reference. No other book gives such easy access to the groups themselves. The automated group construction machinery allows you to tabulate new groups that may be needed in research, such as permutation groups that describe flexible molecules. In Part II, mathematical group theory is presented with motivating questions and experiments coming first, and theorems that answer those questions coming second. You learn to make representations of groups based on any set of symmetric objects, and then to make Mathematica operators that carry out rep construction as a single call. Automated construction of representations is offered by no other book. Part II follows a reconstructed trail of questions, clues and solid results that led Issai Schur to a complete proof of the Great Orthogonality. In Part III, the projection operators that flow from the Great Orthogonality are automated and applied to chemical and spectroscopic problems, which are now seen to fall within a unified intellectual framework. The topics include chemical bonding in symmetric molecules, molecular vibrations and rigorous reasoning about quantum mechanical matrix elements. As a concrete example of the enormous power of the automated projectors, the tensor operators for two and three photon processes are projected under all tabulated groups. All the machinery presented is general, and will work with new groups that you may construct. Finally, there is machinery that accepts as input the multiplication table of any group and returns as output its character table. This will be of great use to spectroscopists who deal with flexible molecules belonging to permutation groups, which are too numerous even for a Mathematica package

Title  An Introduction to NonAbelian Discrete Symmetries for Particle Physicists 
Author(s)  Ishimori, Hajime;Kobayashi, Tatsuo;Ohki, Hiroshi;Okada, Hiroshi;Shimizu, Yusuke;Tanimoto, Morimitsu 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2012. 
Description  XII, 283 p. 8 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  These lecture notes provide a tutorial review of nonAbelian discrete groups and show some applications to issues in physics where discrete symmetries constitute an important principle for model building in particle physics. ??While Abelian discrete symmetries are often imposed in order to control couplings for particle physics  in particular model building beyond the standard model ?? nonAbelian discrete symmetries have been applied to understand the threegeneration flavor structure in particular. ??Indeed, nonAbelian discrete symmetries are considered to be the most attractive choice for the flavor sector: model builders have tried to derive experimental values of quark and lepton masses, and mixing angles by assuming nonAbelian discrete flavor symmetries of quarks and leptons, yet, lepton mixing has already been intensively discussed in this context, as well. The possible origins of the nonAbelian discrete symmetry for flavors is another topic of interest, as they can arise from an underlying theory  e.g. the string theory or compactification via orbifolding ??? thereby providing a possible bridge between the underlying theory and the corresponding lowenergy sector of particle physics. ??This text explicitly introduces and studies the grouptheoretical aspects of many concrete groups and shows how to derive conjugacy classes, characters, representations, and tensor products for these groups (with a finite number) when algebraic relations are given, thereby enabling readers to apply this to other groups of interest

Title  Group Theory : Application to the Physics of Condensed Matter 
Author(s)  Dresselhaus, Mildred S;Dresselhaus, Gene;Jorio, Ado 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2008. 
Description  XV, 582 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Every process in physics is governed by selection rules that are the consequence of symmetry requirements. The beauty and strength of group theory resides in the transformation of many complex symmetry operations into a very simple linear algebra. This concise and classtested book has been pedagogically tailored over 30 years MIT and 2 years at the University Federal of Minas Gerais (UFMG) in Brazil. The approach centers on the conviction that teaching group theory in close connection with applications helps students to learn, understand and use it for their own needs. For this reason, the theoretical background is confined to the first 4 introductory chapters (68 classroom hours). From there, each chapter develops new theory while introducing applications so that the students can best retain new concepts, build on concepts learned the previous week, and see interrelations between topics as presented. Essential problem sets between the chapters also aid the retention of the new material and for the consolidation of material learned in previous chapters. The text and problem sets have proved a useful springboard for the application of the basic material presented here to topics in semiconductor physics, and the physics of carbonbased nanostructures

Abstract Note  Questo testo trae la sua origine da miei vecchi appunti, preparati per il corso di Metodi Matematici della Fisica e via via sistemati, raffinati e aggiornati nel corso di molti anni di insegnamento. L'obiettivo???? stato sempre quello di fornire una presentazione per quanto possibile semplice e diretta dei metodi matematici rilevanti per la Fisica: serie di Fourier, spazi di Hilbert, operatori lineari, funzioni di variabile complessa, trasformata di Fourier e di Laplace, distribuzioni. Oltre a questi argomenti di base, viene presentata, in Appendice, una breve introduzione alle prime nozioni di teoria dei gruppi, delle algebre di Lie e delle simmetrie in vista delle loro applicazioni alla Fisica.
