Title  Statistical Physics : A Prelude and Fugue for Engineers 
Author(s)  Piazza, Roberto 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XV, 453 p. 59 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book, provides a general introduction to the ideas and methods of statistical mechanics with the principal aim of meeting the needs of Master???s students in chemical, mechanical, and materials science engineering. Extensive introductory information is presented on many general physics topics in which students in engineering are inadequately trained, ranging from the Hamiltonian formulation of classical mechanics to basic quantum mechanics, electromagnetic fields in matter, intermolecular forces, and transport phenomena. Since engineers should be able to apply physical concepts, the book also focuses on the practical applications of statistical physics to material science and to cuttingedge technologies, with brief but informative sections on, for example, interfacial properties, disperse systems, nucleation, magnetic materials, superfluidity, and ultralow temperature technologies. The book adopts a graded approach to learning, the opening four basiclevel chapters being followed by advanced ???starred??? sections in which special topics are discussed. Its relatively informal style, including the use of musical metaphors to guide the reader through the text, will aid selflearning.

Title  Beyond Classical Physics 
Author(s)  Cunningham, Mark A 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XXI, 358 p. 157 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This undergraduate textbook discusses the nature of the microscopic universe from a modern perspective, based on Einstein's notions of relativity and Noether's proof of the emergence of conservation laws from symmetries of the equations of motion. These ideas drove the development of the Standard Model of particle physics and string theory. The second half of the book explores various aspects of manybody physics, ranging from chemical systems to plasmas to black holes. Like the previous textbook authored by by Mark Cunningham, Neoclassical Physics, this text uses a guided discovery approach of instruction, highlighting the experimental results that drove development of our modern picture of subatomic physics. Many problems utilize Mathematica software to enable students to explore the meaning of different equations in a graphical manner. Students will gain an appreciation of the current state of physical theory, in preparation for more detailed, advanced study as upperclassmen

Title  Skyrmions in Condensed Matter 
Author(s)  Han, Jung Hoon 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XV, 177 p. 25 illus., 14 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book summarizes some of the most exciting theoretical developments in the topological phenomena of skyrmions in noncentrosymmetric magnetic systems over recent decades. After presenting pedagogical backgrounds to the Berry phase and homotopy theory, the author systematically discusses skyrmions in the order of their development, from the GinzburgLandau theory, CP1 theory, LandauLifshitzGilbert theory, and Monte Carlo numerical approaches. Modern topics, such as the skyrmionelectron interaction, skyrmionmagnon interaction, and various generation mechanisms of the skyrmion are examined with a focus on their general theoretical aspects. The book concludes with a chapter on the skyrmion phenomena in the cold atom context. The topics are presented at a level accessible to beginning graduate students without a substantial background in field theory. The book can also be used as a text for those who wish to engage in the physics of skyrmions in magnetic systems, or as an introduction to the various theoretical methods used in studying current condensedmatter systems

Title  Guerrilla Science : Survival Strategies of a Cuban Physicist 
Author(s)  Altshuler, Ernesto 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  X, 147 p. 71 illus., 50 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Full of drama, dedication, and humor, this book narrates the author???s often frustrating experiences working as an experimental physicist in Cuba after the disintegration of the socalled socialist block. Lacking finance and infrastructure, faced with makeshift equipment, unpredictable supplies, and unreliable IT, Altshuler tells how he and his students overcame numerous challenges to make novel and interesting contributions to several fields of science. Along the way, he explains the science  from studies of ant colonies to superconductivity  either qualitatively or quantitatively, but always at a level fully understandable to an undergraduate student of natural sciences or engineering. An even wider audience, however, may skip the technical sections without missing the essence. With numerous anecdotes, photographs and the author???s own delightful cartoons, the book tells a remarkable, and often amusing story of how successful science can be performed against all odds

Title  Nanoscale AFM and TEM Observations of Elementary Dislocation Mechanisms 
Author(s)  Vesel??, Jozef 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 100 p. 86 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis addresses elementary dislocation processes occurring in singlecrystalline alloys based on FeAl, and investigates correspondences between dislocation distribution inside crystals characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and surface patterns observed using atomic force microscopy (AFM). FeAl alloys with different degrees of ordering were prepared and deformed in compression at ambient temperature insitu inside the AFM device. The evolution of slip line structures was captured in the sequences of AFM images and wavy slip bands, while cross slip at the tip of the slip band and homogeneous fine slip lines were also identified. Further, the thesis develops a technique for constructing 3D representations of dislocations observed by TEM without the prohibitive difficulties of tomography, and creates 3D models of dislocation structures. Generally speaking, the thesis finds good agreement between AFM and TEM observations, confirming the value of AFM as a relevant tool for studying dislocations

Title  Advanced Quantum Mechanics : Materials and Photons 
Author(s)  Dick, Rainer 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XXI, 811 p. 64 illus., 42 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook, now in an expanded third edition, emphasizes the importance of advanced quantum mechanics for materials science and all experimental techniques which employ photon absorption, emission, or scattering. Important aspects of introductory quantum mechanics are covered in the first seven chapters to make the subject selfcontained and accessible for a wide audience. Advanced Quantum Mechanics: Materials and Photons can therefore be used for advanced undergraduate courses and introductory graduate courses which are targeted towards students with diverse academic backgrounds from the Natural Sciences or Engineering. To enhance this inclusive aspect of making the subject as accessible as possible, introductions to Lagrangian mechanics and the covariant formulation of electrodynamics are provided in appendices. This third edition includes 60 new exercises, new and improved illustrations, and new material on interpretations of quantum mechanics. Other special features include an introduction to Lagrangian field theory and an integrated discussion of transition amplitudes with discrete or continuous initial or final states. Once students have acquired an understanding of basic quantum mechanics and classical field theory, canonical field quantization is easy. Furthermore, the integrated discussion of transition amplitudes naturally leads to the notions of transition probabilities, decay rates, absorption cross sections and scattering cross sections, which are important for all experimental techniques that use photon probes

Title  Avalanches in Functional Materials and Geophysics 
Author(s)  Salje, Ekhard K.H;Saxena, Avadh;Planes, Antoni 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVII, 298 p. 171 illus., 80 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides the stateofthe art of the present understanding of avalanche phenomena in both functional materials and geophysics. The main emphasis of the book is analyzing these apparently different problems within the common perspective of outofequilibrium phenomena displaying spatial and temporal complexity that occur in a broad range of scales. Many systems, when subjected to an external force, respond intermittently in the form of avalanches that often span over a wide range of sizes, energies and durations. This is often related to a class of critical behavior characterized by the absence of characteristic scales. Typical examples are magnetization processes, plastic deformation and failure occuring in functional materials. These phenomena share many similarities with seismicity arising from the earth crust failure due to stresses that originate from plate tectonics

Title  Transport and Turbulence in QuasiUniform and Versatile BoseEinstein Condensates 
Author(s)  Guillaume, Gauthier 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XX, 177 p. 70 illus., 68 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Advancing the experimental study of superfluids relies on increasingly sophisticated techniques. This work develops and demonstrates the loading of BoseEinstein condensates (BECs) into nearly arbitrary trapping potentials, with a resolution improved by a factor of seven when compared to reported systems. These advanced control techniques have now been adopted by several cold atoms labs around the world. The book describes how this BEC system was used to study 2D superfluid dynamic. In particular, negative temperature vortex states in a twodimensional quantum fluid were observed. These states were first predicted by Lars Onsager 70 years ago and have significance to 2D turbulence in quantum and classical fluids, longrange interacting systems, and defect dynamics in highenergy physics. These experiments have established dilutegas BECs as the prototypical system for the experimental study of point vortices and their nonequilibrium dynamics. Also presented is a new approach to superfluid circuitry based on classical acoustic circuits, whose conceptual and quantitative superiority over previous lumpedelement models is demonstrated. This approach has established foundational principles of superfluid circuitry that will impact the design of future transport experiments and new generation quantum devices, such as atomtronics circuits and superfluid sensors

Title  Approximate Quantum Markov Chains 
Author(s)  Sutter, David 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  VIII, 118 p. 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is an introduction to quantum Markov chains and explains how this concept is connected to the question of how well a lost quantum mechanical system can be recovered from a correlated subsystem. To achieve this goal, we strengthen the dataprocessing inequality such that it reveals a statement about the reconstruction of lost information. The main difficulty in order to understand the behavior of quantum Markov chains arises from the fact that quantum mechanical operators do not commute in general. As a result we start by explaining two techniques of how to deal with noncommuting matrices: the spectral pinching method and complex interpolation theory. Once the reader is familiar with these techniques a novel inequality is presented that extends the celebrated GoldenThompson inequality to arbitrarily many matrices. This inequality is the key ingredient in understanding approximate quantum Markov chains and it answers a question from matrix analysis that was open since 1973, i.e., if Lieb's triple matrix inequality can be extended to more than three matrices. Finally, we carefully discuss the properties of approximate quantum Markov chains and their implications. The book is aimed to graduate students who want to learn about approximate quantum Markov chains as well as more experienced scientists who want to enter this field. Mathematical majority is necessary, but no prior knowledge of quantum mechanics is required
