Title  LQG for the Bewildered : The SelfDual Approach Revisited 
Author(s)  Vaid, Deepak;BilsonThompson, Sundance 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. 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

Title  The Electron Mass and Calcium Isotope Shifts : HighPrecision Measurements of BoundElectron gFactors of Highly Charged Ions 
Author(s)  K??hlerLanges, Florian 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. 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  A Computational Noncommutative Geometry Program for Disordered Topological Insulators 
Author(s)  Prodan, Emil 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  X, 118 p. 19 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This work presents a computational program based on the principles of noncommutative geometry and showcases several applications to topological insulators. Noncommutative geometry has been originally proposed by Jean Bellissard as a theoretical framework for the investigation of homogeneous condensed matter systems. Recently, this approach has been successfully applied to topological insulators, where it facilitated many rigorous results concerning the stability of the topological invariants against disorder. In the first part of the book the notion of a homogeneous material is introduced and the class of disordered crystals defined together with the classification table, which conjectures all topological phases from this class. The manuscript continues with a discussion of electrons??? dynamics in disordered crystals and the theory of topological invariants in the presence of strong disorder is briefly reviewed. It is shown how all this can be captured in the language of noncommutative geometry using the concept of noncommutative Brillouin torus, and a list of known formulas for various physical response functions is presented. In the second part, auxiliary algebras are introduced and a canonical finitevolume approximation of the noncommutative Brillouin torus is developed. Explicit numerical algorithms for computing generic correlation functions are discussed. In the third part upper bounds on the numerical errors are derived and it is proved that the canonicalfinite volume approximation converges extremely fast to the thermodynamic limit. Convergence tests and various applications concludes the presentation. The book is intended for graduate students and researchers in numerical and mathematical physics

Title  Refined Ray Tracing inside Single and DoubleCurvatured Concave Surfaces 
Author(s)  Choudhury, Balamati;Jha, Rakesh Mohan 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2016. 
Description  XXIV, 61 p. 17 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes the ray tracing effects inside different quadric surfaces. Analytical surface modeling is a priori requirement for electromagnetic (EM) analysis over aerospace platforms. Although numericallyspecified surfaces and even nonuniform rational basis spline (NURBS) can be used for modeling such surfaces, for most practical EM applications, it is sufficient to model them as quadric surface patches and the hybrids thereof. It is therefore apparent that a vast majority of aerospace bodies can be conveniently modeled as combinations of simpler quadric surfaces, i.e. hybrid of quadric cylinders and quadric surfaces of revolutions. Hence the analysis of geometric ray tracing inside is prerequisite to analyzing the RF buildup. This book, describes the ray tracing effects inside different quadric surfaces such as right circular cylinder, general paraboloid of revolution (GPOR), GPOR frustum of different shaping parameters and the corresponding visualization of the raypath details. Finally ray tracing inside a typical space module, which is a hybrid of a finite segment of right circular cylinder and a frustum of GPOR is analyzed for practical aerospace applications

Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. 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

Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 452 p. 103 illus., 40 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This interdisciplinary work on condensed matter physics, the continuum mechanics of novel materials, and partial differential equations, discusses the mathematical theory of elasticity and hydrodynamics of quasicrystals, as well as its applications. By establishing new partial differential equations of higher order and their solutions under complicated boundary value and initial value conditions, the theories developed here dramatically simplify the solution of complex elasticity problems. Comprehensive and detailed mathematical derivations guide readers through the work. By combining theoretical analysis and experimental data, mathematical studies and practical applications, readers will gain a systematic, comprehensive and indepth understanding of condensed matter physics, new continuum mechanics and applied mathematics. This new edition covers the latest developments in quasicrystal studies. In particular, it pays special attention to the hydrodynamics, softmatter quasicrystals, and the Poisson bracket method and its application in deriving hydrodynamic equations. These new sections make the book an even more useful and comprehensive reference guide for researchers working in Condensed Matter Physics, Chemistry and Materials Science

Title  The c and aTheorems and the Local Renormalisation Group 
Author(s)  Shore, Graham 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  VII, 102 p. 5 illus., 3 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The Zamolodchikov ctheorem has led to important new insights in the understanding of the Renormalisation Group (RG) and the geometry of the space of QFTs. The present primer introduces and reviews the parallel developments of the search for a higherdimensional generalisation of the ctheorem and of the Local RG (LRG). The idea of renormalisation with positiondependent couplings, running under local Weyl scaling, is traced from its early realisations to the elegant modern formalism of the LRG. The key r??le of the associated Weyl consistency conditions in establishing RG flow equations for the coefficients of the trace anomaly in curved spacetime, and their relation to the ctheorem and fourdimensional atheorem, is explained in detail. A number of different derivations of the ctheorem in two dimensions are presented and subsequently generalised to four dimensions. The obstructions to establishing monotonic Cfunctions related to the trace anomaly coefficients in four dimensions are explained. The possibility of deriving an atheorem for the coefficient of the EulerGaussBonnet density is explored, initially by formulating the QFT on maximally symmetric spaces. Then the formulation of the weak atheorem using a dispersion relation for fourpoint functions is presented. Finally, the application of the LRG to the issue of limit cycles in theories with a global symmetry is described, shedding new light on the geometry of the space of couplings in QFT

Title  From Newton to Mandelbrot : A Primer in Theoretical Physics 
Author(s)  Stauffer, Dietrich;Stanley, H. Eugene;Lesne, Annick 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 270 p. 84 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook takes the reader on a tour of the most important landmarks of theoretical physics: classical, quantum, and statistical mechanics, relativity, electrodynamics, as well as the most modern and exciting of all: elementary particles and the physics of fractals. The second edition has been supplemented with a new chapter devoted to concise though complete presentation of dynamical systems, bifurcations and chaos theory. The treatment is confined to the essentials of each area, presenting all the central concepts and equations at an accessible level. Chapters 1 to 4 contain the standard material of courses in theoretical physics and are supposed to accompany lectures at the university; thus they are rather condensed. They are supposed to fill one year of teaching. Chapters 5 and 6, in contrast, are written less condensed since this material may not be part of standard lectures and thus could be studied without the help of a university teacher. An appendix on elementary particles lies somewhere in between: It could be a summary of a much more detailed course, or studied without such a course. Illustrations and numerous problems round off this unusual textbook. It will ideally accompany the students all along their course in theoretical physics and prove indispensable in preparing and revising the exams. It is also suited as a reference for teachers or scientists from other disciplines who are interested in the topic
