Title  Perturbative Algebraic Quantum Field Theory : An Introduction for Mathematicians 
Author(s)  Rejzner, Kasia 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XI, 180 p. 4 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Perturbative Algebraic Quantum Field Theory (pAQFT), the subject of this book, is a complete and mathematically rigorous treatment of perturbative quantum field theory (pQFT) that doesn???t require the use of divergent quantities. We discuss in detail the examples of scalar fields and gauge theories and generalize them to QFT on curved spacetimes. pQFT models describe a wide range of physical phenomena and have remarkable agreement with experimental results. Despite this success, the theory suffers from many conceptual problems. pAQFT is a good candidate to solve many, if not all of these conceptual problems. Chapters 13 provide some background in mathematics and physics. Chapter 4 concerns classical theory of the scalar field, which is subsequently quantized in chapters 5 and 6. Chapter 7 covers gauge theory and chapter 8 discusses QFT on curved spacetimes and effective quantum gravity. The book aims to be accessible researchers and graduate students interested in the mathematical foundations of pQFT are the intended audience

Title  Symmetries and Integrability of Difference Equations : Lecture Notes of the Abecederian School of SIDE 12, Montreal 2016 
Author(s)  Levi, Decio;Rebelo, Rapha??l;Winternitz, Pavel 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  X, 435 p. 67 illus., 26 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book shows how Lie group and integrability techniques, originally developed for differential equations, have been adapted to the case of difference equations. Difference equations are playing an increasingly important role in the natural sciences. Indeed, many phenomena are inherently discrete and thus naturally described by difference equations. More fundamentally, in subatomic physics, spacetime may actually be discrete. Differential equations would then just be approximations of more basic discrete ones. Moreover, when using differential equations to analyze continuous processes, it is often necessary to resort to numerical methods. This always involves a discretization of the differential equations involved, thus replacing them by difference ones. Each of the nine peerreviewed chapters in this volume serves as a selfcontained treatment of a topic, containing introductory material as well as the latest research results and exercises. Each chapter is presented by one or more early career researchers in the specific field of their expertise and, in turn, written for early career researchers. As a survey of the current state of the art, this book will serve as a valuable reference and is particularly well suited as an introduction to the field of symmetries and integrability of difference equations. Therefore, the book will be welcomed by advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as by more advanced researchers

Title  Superconformal Index on RP2 ?? S1 and 3D Mirror Symmetry 
Author(s)  Tanaka, Akinori 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2016. 
Description  XII, 83 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The author introduces the supersymmetric localization technique, a new approach for computing path integrals in quantum field theory on curved space (time) defined with interacting Lagrangian. The author focuses on a particular quantity called the superconformal index (SCI), which is defined by considering the theories on the product space of two spheres and circles, in order to clarify the validity of socalled threedimensional mirror symmetry, one of the famous duality proposals. In addition to a review of known results, the author presents a new definition of SCI by considering theories on the product space of realprojective space and circles. In this book, he explains the concept of SCI from the point of view of quantum mechanics and gives localization computations by reducing field theoretical computations to manybody quantum mechanics. He applies his new results of SCI with realprojective space to test threedimensional mirror symmetry, one of the dualities of quantum field theory. Realprojective space is known to be an unorientable surface like the Mobius strip, and there are many exotic effects resulting from Z2 holonomy of the surface. Thanks to these exotic structures, his results provide completely new evidence of threedimensional mirror symmetry. The equivalence expected from threedimensional mirror symmetry is transformed into a conjectural nontrivial mathematical identity through the new SCI, and he performs the proof of the identity using a qbinomial formula

Title  Hadamard States from Lightlike Hypersurfaces 
Author(s)  Dappiaggi, Claudio;Moretti, Valter;Pinamonti, Nicola 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  VIII, 106 p. 2 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a rather selfcontained survey of the construction of Hadamard states for scalar field theories in a large class of notable spacetimes, possessing a (conformal) lightlike boundary. The first two sections focus on explaining a few introductory aspects of this topic and on providing the relevant geometric background material. The notions of asymptotically flat spacetimes and of expanding universes with a cosmological horizon are analysed in detail, devoting special attention to the characterization of asymptotic symmetries. In the central part of the book, the quantization of a real scalar field theory on such class of backgrounds is discussed within the framework of algebraic quantum field theory. Subsequently it is explained how it is possible to encode the information of the observables of the theory in a second, ancillary counterpart, which is built directly on the conformal (null) boundary. This procedure, dubbed bulktoboundary correspondence, has the net advantage of allowing the identification of a distinguished state for the theory on the boundary, which admits a counterpart in the bulk spacetime which is automatically of Hadamard form. In the last part of the book, some applications of these states are discussed, in particular the construction of the algebra of Wick polynomials. This book is aimed mainly, but not exclusively, at a readership with interest in the mathematical formulation of quantum field theory on curved backgrounds

Title  Quantum Field Theory : A Modern Perspective 
Author(s)  Nair, V. P 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer New York, 2005. 
Description  XIV, 558 p. 100 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Quantum field theory, which started with Paul Dirac???s work shortly after the discovery of quantum mechanics, has produced an impressive and important array of results. Quantum electrodynamics, with its extremely accurate and welltested predictions, and the standard model of electroweak and chromodynamic (nuclear) forces are examples of successful theories. Field theory has also been applied to a variety of phenomena in condensed matter physics, including superconductivity, superfluidity and the quantum Hall effect. The concept of the renormalization group has given us a new perspective on field theory in general and on critical phenomena in particular. At this stage, a strong case can be made that quantum field theory is the mathematical and intellectual framework for describing and understanding all physical phenomena, except possibly for a quantum theory of gravity. Quantum Field Theory: A Modern Perspective presents Professor Nair???s view of certain topics in field theory loosely knit together as it grew out of courses on field theory and particle physics taught at Columbia University and the City College of CUNY. The first few chapters, up to Chapter 12, contain material that generally goes into any course on quantum field theory, although there are a few nuances of presentation which readers may find to be different from other books. This first part of the book can be used for a general course on field theory, omitting, perhaps, the last three sections in Chapter 3, the last two in Chapter 8 and sections 6 and 7 in Chapter 10. The remaining chapters cover some of the more modern developments over the last three decades, involving topological and geometrical features. The introduction given to the mathematical basis of this part of the discussion is necessarily brief and should be accompanied by books on the relevant mathematical topics as indicated in the bibliography. Professor Nair also concentrates on developments pertinent to a better understanding of the standard model. There is no discussion of supersymmetry, supergravity, developments in field theory inspired by string theory, etc. There is also no detailed discussion of the renormalization group. Each of these topics would require a book in its own right to do justice to the topic. Quantum Field Theory: A Modern Perspective serves as a portal to so many more topics of detailed and ongoing research, referring readers to more detailed treatments for many specific topics. The book also contains extensive references, providing readers a more comprehensive perspective on the literature and the historical development of the subject. V. Parameswaran Nair is Professor of Physics at City College of The City University of New York (CUNY). Professor Nair has held Visiting Professorships at The Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics, Rockefeller University, Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Title  Analytic Tools for Feynman Integrals 
Author(s)  Smirnov, Vladimir A 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2012. 
Description  X, 298 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The goal of this book is to describe the most powerful methods for evaluating multiloop Feynman integrals that are currently used in practice.?? This book supersedes the author???s previous Springer book ???Evaluating Feynman Integrals??? and its textbook version ???Feynman Integral Calculus.??? Since the publication of these two books, powerful new methods have arisen and conventional methods have been improved on in essential ways. A further qualitative change is the fact that most of the methods and the corresponding algorithms have now been implemented in computer codes which are often public. In comparison to the two previous books, three new chapters have been added:?? One is on sector decomposition, while the second describes a new method by Lee. The third new chapter concerns the asymptotic expansions of Feynman integrals in momenta and masses, which were described in detail in another Springer book, ???Applied Asymptotic Expansions in Momenta and Masses,??? by the author. This chapter describes, on the basis of papers that appeared after the publication of said book, how to algorithmically discover the regions relevant to a given limit within the strategy of expansion by regions. In addition, the chapters on the method of MellinBarnes representation and on the method of integration by parts have been substantially rewritten, with an emphasis on the corresponding algorithms and computer codes

Title  Geometry of the Fundamental Interactions : On Riemann's Legacy to High Energy Physics and Cosmology 
Author(s)  Maia, M. D 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer New York, 2011. 
Description  IX, 179 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Gravitation, electromagnetics and the two types of nuclear forces constitute the four fundamental forces of nature which regulate our everyday life.?? Amazingly, they are all described by a single idea of the 19th century proposed by Bernhard Riemann, and with the exception of??gravitation, these ideas have been since confirmed by high energy experiments and cosmological observations.?? Geometry of the Fundamental Interactions  On Riemann's Legacy to High Energy Physics and Cosmology is a mathematical narrative of how we have come to agree on such a complex plot of nature, starting with the basic geometrical concepts and ending with hints on the perspective for cosmology. This book originated from lectures given for several years to a mixed audience of mathematicians, physicists, astronomers, engineers, philosophers and sociologists seeking to understand the basics of those interactions and how the concept of Riemann curvature came to occupy such a central position in physics.?? The author takes on the challenge of making the path toward understanding both accessible and interesting to a wide audience

Title  Generators and Relations in Groups and Geometries 
Author(s)  Barlotti, A;Ellers, E.W;Plaumann, P;Strambach, K 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 1991. 
Description  XV, 447 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Every group is represented in many ways as an epimorphic image of a free group. It seems therefore futile to search for methods involving generators and relations which can be used to detect the structure of a group. Nevertheless, results in the indicated direction exist. The clue is to ask the right question. Classical geometry is a typical example in which the factorization of a motion into reflections or, more generally, of a collineation into central collineations, supplies valuable information on the geometric and algebraic structure. This mode of investigation has gained momentum since the end of last century. The tradition of geometricalgebraic interplay brought forward two branches of research which are documented in Parts I and II of these Proceedings. Part II deals with the theory of reflection geometry which culminated in Bachmann's work where the geometric information is encoded in properties of the group of motions expressed by relations in the generating involutions. This approach is the backbone of the classification of motion groups for the classical unitary and orthogonal planes. The axioms in this char?? acterization are natural and plausible. They provoke the study of consequences of subsets of axioms which also yield natural geometries whose exploration is rewarding. Bachmann's central axiom is the three reflection theorem, showing that the number of reflections needed to express a motion is of great importance
