Title  Memory Functions, Projection Operators, and the Defect Technique : Some Tools of the Trade for the Condensed Matter Physicist 
Author(s)  Kenkre, V. M. (Nitant) 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XXII, 374 p. 83 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a graduatelevel introduction to three powerful and closely related techniques in condensed matter physics: memory functions, projection operators, and the defect technique. Memory functions appear in the formalism of the generalized master equations that express the time evolution of probabilities via equations nonlocal in time, projection operators allow the extraction of parts of quantities, such as the diagonal parts of density matrices in statistical mechanics, and the defect technique allows solution of transport equations in which the translational invariance is broken in small regions, such as when crystals are doped with impurities. These three methods combined form an immensely useful toolkit for investigations in such disparate areas of physics as excitation in molecular crystals, sensitized luminescence, charge transport, nonequilibrium statistical physics, vibrational relaxation, granular materials, NMR, and even theoretical ecology. This book explains the three techniques and their interrelated nature, along with plenty of illustrative examples. Graduate students beginning to embark on a research project in condensed matter physics will find this book to be a most fruitful source of theoretical training.

Title  Quantum fDivergences in von Neumann Algebras : Reversibility of Quantum Operations 
Author(s)  Hiai, Fumio 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Nature Singapore, 2021. 
Description  X, 194 p. 139 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Relative entropy has played a significant role in various fields of mathematics and physics as the quantum version of the Kullback???Leibler divergence in classical theory. Many variations of relative entropy have been introduced so far with applications to quantum information and related subjects. Typical examples are three different classes, called the standard, the maximal, and the measured fdivergences, all of which are defined in terms of (operator) convex functions f on (0,???) and have respective mathematical and information theoretical backgrounds. The ??R??nyi relative entropy and its new version called the sandwiched ??R??nyi relative entropy have also been useful in recent developments of quantum information. In the first half of this monograph, the different types of quantum fdivergences and the R??nyitype divergences mentioned above in the general von Neumann algebra setting are presented for study. While quantum information has been developing mostly in the finitedimensional setting, it is widely believed that von Neumann algebras provide the most suitable framework in studying quantum information and related subjects. Thus, the advance of quantum divergences in von Neumann algebras will be beneficial for further development of quantum information. Quantum divergences are functions of two states (or more generally, two positive linear functionals) on a quantum system and measure the difference between the two states. They are often utilized to address such problems as state discrimination, error correction, and reversibility of quantum operations. In the second half of the monograph, the reversibility/sufficiency theory for quantum operations (quantum channels) between von Neumann algebras via quantum fdivergences is explained, thus extending and strengthening Petz' previous work. For the convenience of the reader, an appendix including concise accounts of von Neumann algebras is provided

Title  Exercises and Problems in Mathematical Methods of Physics 
Author(s)  Cicogna, Giampaolo 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  X, 182 p. 8 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents exercises and problems in the mathematical methods of physics with the aim of offering undergraduate students an alternative way to explore and fully understand the mathematical notions on which modern physics is based. The exercises and problems are proposed not in a random order but rather in a sequence that maximizes their educational value. Each section and subsection starts with exercises based on first definitions, followed by groups of problems devoted to intermediate and, subsequently, more elaborate situations. Some of the problems are unavoidably "routine", but others bring to the forenontrivial properties that are often omitted or barely mentioned in textbooks. There are also problems where the reader is guided to obtain important results that are usually stated in textbooks without complete proofs. In all, some 350 solved problems covering all mathematical notions useful to physics are included. While the book is intended primarily for undergraduate students of physics, students of mathematics, chemistry, and engineering, as well as their teachers, will also find it of value.

Title  Exercises and Problems in Mathematical Methods of Physics 
Author(s)  Cicogna, Giampaolo 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XII, 218 p. 9 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is the second edition, whose original mission was to offer a new approach for students wishing to better understand the mathematical tenets that underlie the study of physics. This mission is retained in this book. The structure of the book is one that keeps pedagogical principles in mind at every level. Not only are the chapters sequenced in such a way as to guide the reader down a clear path that stretches throughout the book, but all individual sections and subsections are also laid out so that the material they address becomes progressively more complex along with the reader's ability to comprehend it. This book not only improves upon the first in many details, but it also fills in some gaps that were left open by this and other books on similar topics. The 350 problems presented here are accompanied by answers which now include a greater amount of detail and additional guidance for arriving at the solutions. In this way, the mathematical underpinnings of the relevant physics topics are made as easy to absorb as possible.

Title  Quantum Waveguides 
Author(s)  Exner, Pavel;Kova????k, Hynek 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2015. 
Description  XXII, 382 p. 9 illus., 3 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This monograph explains the theory of quantum waveguides, that is, dynamics of quantum particles confined to regions in the form of tubes, layers, networks, etc. The focus is on relations between the confinement geometry on the one hand and the spectral and scattering properties of the corresponding quantum Hamiltonians on the other. Perturbations of such operators, in particular, by external fields are also considered. The volume provides a unique summary of twenty five years of research activity in this area and indicates ways in which the theory can develop further. The book is fairly selfcontained. While it requires some broader mathematical physics background, all the basic concepts are properly explained and proofs of most theorems are given in detail, so there is no need for additional sources. Without a parallel in the literature, the monograph by Exner and Kovarik guides the reader through this new and exciting field

Title  Hilbert Space Operators in Quantum Physics 
Author(s)  Blank, Jir??;Exner, Pavel;Havl??cek, Miloslav 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2008. 
Description  XVII, 664 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The second edition of this coursetested book provides a detailed and indepth discussion of the foundations of quantum theory as well as its applications to various systems. The exposition is selfcontained; in the first part the reader finds the mathematical background in chapters about functional analysis, operators on Hilbert spaces and their spectral theory, as well as operator sets and algebras. This material is used in the second part to a systematic explanation of the foundations, in particular, states and observables, properties of canonical variables, time evolution, symmetries and various axiomatic approaches. In the third part, specific physical systems and situations are discussed. Two chapters analyze Schr??dinger operators and scattering, two others added in the second edition are devoted to new important topics, quantum waveguides and quantum graphs. Some praise for the previous edition: "I really enjoyed reading this work. It is very well written, by three real experts in the field. It stands quite alone...." John R. Taylor, Professor of Physics and Presidential Teaching Scholar, University of Colorado at Boulder
