Title  PseudoBosons and Their Coherent States 
Author(s)  Bagarello, Fabio 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XI, 201 p. 5 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is based on the analysis of canonical commutation relations (CCRs) and their possible deformations. In light of the recent interest on PTquantum mechanics, the author presents a special deformed version of the CCRs, and discusses the consequences of this deformation both from a mathematical side, and for its possible applications to physics. These include the analysis of several non selfadjoint Hamiltonians, a novel view to the position and momentum operators, and a general approach to compute path integrals and transition probabilities using the socalled bicoherent states. The book is meant for researchers and is also suited for advanced students. It can be used as a gentle introduction to some delicate aspects in functional analysis and in quantum mechanics for non selfadjoint observables

Title  An Introduction to Covariant Quantum Mechanics 
Author(s)  Jany??ka, Josef;Modugno, Marco 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVIII, 838 p. 10 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book deals with an original contribution to the hypothetical missing link unifying the two fundamental branches of physics born in the twentieth century, General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. Namely, the book is devoted to a review of a "covariant approach" to Quantum Mechanics, along with several improvements and new results with respect to the previous related literature. The first part of the book deals with a covariant formulation of Galilean Classical Mechanics, which stands as a suitable background for covariant Quantum Mechanics. The second part deals with an introduction to covariant Quantum Mechanics. Further, in order to show how the presented covariant approach works in the framework of standard Classical Mechanics and standard Quantum Mechanics, the third part provides a detailed analysis of the standard Galilean spacetime, along with three dynamical classical and quantum examples. The appendix accounts for several nonstandard mathematical methods widely used in the body of the book

Title  Timeless Quantum Mechanics and the Early Universe 
Author(s)  Chataignier, Leonardo 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XX, 242 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book is based on the author's PhD thesis, which deals with the concept of time in quantum gravity and its relevance for the physics of the early Universe. It presents a consistent and complete new relational formulation of quantum gravity (more specifically, of quantum mechanics models with diffeomorphism invariance), which is applied to potentially observable cosmological effects. The work provides answers to the following questions: How can the dynamics of quantum states of matter and geometry be defined in a diffeomorphisminvariant way? What is the relevant space of physical states and which operators act on it? How are the quantum states related to probabilities in the absence of a preferred time? The answers can provide a further part of the route to constructing a fundamental theory of quantum gravity. The book is wellsuited to graduate students as well as professional researchers in the fields of general relativity and gravitation, cosmology, and quantum foundations

Title  Interplay of Quantum Mechanics and Nonlinearity : Understanding SmallSystem Dynamics of the Discrete Nonlinear Schr??dinger Equation 
Author(s)  Kenkre, V. M. (Nitant) 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXVI, 310 p. 114 illus., 34 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents an indepth study of the discrete nonlinear Schr??dinger equation (DNLSE), with particular emphasis on spatially small systems that permit analytic solutions. In many quantum systems of contemporary interest, the DNLSE arises as a result of approximate descriptions despite the fundamental linearity of quantum mechanics. Such scenarios, exemplified by polaron physics and BoseEinstein condensation, provide application areas for the theoretical tools developed in this text. The book begins with an introduction of the DNLSE illustrated with the dimer, development of fundamental analytic tools such as elliptic functions, and the resulting insights into experiment that they allow. Subsequently, the interplay of the initial quantum phase with nonlinearity is studied, leading to novel phenomena with observable implications in fields such as fluorescence depolarization of stick dimers, followed by analysis of more complex and/or larger systems. Specific examples analyzed in the book include the nondegenerate nonlinear dimer, nonlinear trapping, rotational polarons, and the nonadiabatic nonlinear dimer. Phenomena treated include strong carrierphonon interactions and BoseEinstein condensation. This book is aimed at researchers and advanced graduate students, with chapter summaries and problems to test the reader???s understanding, along with an extensive bibliography. The book will be essential reading for researchers in condensed matter and lowtemperature atomic physics, as well as any scientist who wants fascinating insights into the role of nonlinearity in quantum physics

Title  Heisenberg???s Uncertainty Principle and the Electron Statistics in Quantized Structures 
Author(s)  Ghatak, Kamakhya Prasad;Mitra, Madhuchhanda;Biswas, Arindam 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  XXVI, 234 p. 133 illus., 63 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book highlights the importance of Electron Statistics (ES), which occupies a singular position in the arena of solid state sciences, in heavily doped (HD) nanostructures by applying Heisenberg???s Uncertainty Principle directly without using the complicated DensityofStates function approach as given in the literature. The materials considered are HD quantum confined nonlinear optical, IIIV, IIVI, IVVI, GaP, Ge, PtSb2, stressed materials, GaSb, Te, IIV, Bi2Te3, lead germanium telluride, zinc and cadmium diphosphides, and quantum confined IIIV, IVVI, IIVI and HgTe/CdTe superlattices with graded interfaces and effective mass superlattices. The presence of intense light waves in optoelectronics and strong electric field in nanodevices change the band structure of materials in fundamental ways, which have also been incorporated in the study of ES in HD quantized structures of optoelectronic compounds that control the studies of the HD quantum effect devices under strong fields. The influence of magnetic quantization, magneto size quantization, quantum wells, wires and dots, crossed electric and quantizing fields, intense electric field, and light waves on the ES in HD quantized structures and superlattices are discussed. The content of this book finds six different applications in the arena of nanoscience and nanotechnology and the various ES dependent electronic quantities, namely the effective mass, the screening length, the Einstein relation and the elastic constants have been investigated. This book is useful for researchers, engineers and professionals in the fields of Applied Sciences, solid state and materials science, nanoscience and technology, condensed matter physics, and allied fields, including courses in semiconductor nanostructures

Title  Entropy, Divergence, and Majorization in Classical and Quantum Thermodynamics 
Author(s)  Sagawa, Takahiro 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  X, 149 p. 11 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Rich informationtheoretic structure in outofequilibrium thermodynamics exists in both the classical and quantum regimes, leading to the fruitful interplay among statistical physics, quantum information theory, and mathematical theories such as matrix analysis and asymptotic probability theory. The main purpose of this book is to clarify how information theory works behind thermodynamics and to shed modern light on it. The book focuses on both purely informationtheoretic concepts and their physical implications. From the mathematical point of view, rigorous proofs of fundamental properties of entropies, divergences, and majorization are presented in a selfcontained manner. From the physics perspective, modern formulations of thermodynamics are discussed, with a focus on stochastic thermodynamics and resource theory of thermodynamics. In particular, resource theory is a recently developed field as a branch of quantum information theory to quantify ???useful resources??? and has an intrinsic connection to various fundamental ideas of mathematics and information theory. This book serves as a concise introduction to important ingredients of the informationtheoretic formulation of thermodynamics.

Title  Quantum Network with Multiple Cold Atomic Ensembles 
Author(s)  Jing, Bo 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  XVI, 188 p. 88 illus., 82 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book highlights the novel research in quantum memory networking, especially quantum memories based on cold atomic ensembles. After discussing the frontiers of quantum networking research and building a DLCZtype quantum memory with cold atomic ensemble, the author develops the ring cavity enhanced quantum memory and demonstrates a filterfree quantum memory, which significantly improves the photonatom entanglement. The author then realizes for the first time the GHZtype entanglement of three separate quantum memories, a building block of 2D quantum repeaters and quantum networks. The author also combines quantum memories and timeresolved measurements, and reports the first multiple interference of three single photons with different colors. The book is of good reference value for graduate students, researchers, and technical personnel in quantum information sciences

Title  A First Course on Symmetry, Special Relativity and Quantum Mechanics : The Foundations of Physics 
Author(s)  Kunstatter, Gabor;Das, Saurya 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXXI, 391 p. 94 illus., 82 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides an indepth and accessible description of special relativity and quantum mechanics which together form the foundation of 21st century physics. A novel aspect is that symmetry is given its rightful prominence as an integral part of this foundation. The book offers not only a conceptual understanding of symmetry, but also the mathematical tools necessary for quantitative analysis. As such, it provides a valuable precursor to more focused, advanced books on special relativity or quantum mechanics. Students are introduced to several topics not typically covered until much later in their education.These include spacetime diagrams, the action principle, a proof of Noether's theorem, Lorentz vectors and tensors, symmetry breaking and general relativity. The book also provides extensive descriptions on topics of current general interest such as gravitational waves, cosmology, Bell's theorem, entanglement and quantum computing. Throughout the text, every opportunity is taken to emphasize the intimate connection between physics, symmetry and mathematics.The style remains light despite the rigorous and intensive content. The book is intended as a standalone or supplementary physics text for a one or two semester course for students who have completed an introductory calculus course and a firstyear physics course that includes Newtonian mechanics and some electrostatics. Basic knowledge of linear algebra is useful but not essential, as all requisite mathematical background is provided either in the body of the text or in the Appendices. Interspersed through the text are well over a hundred worked examples and unsolved exercises for the student

Title  Modern Physics : Introduction to Statistical Mechanics, Relativity, and Quantum Physics 
Author(s)  Salasnich, Luca 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  X, 194 p. 10 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers an introduction to statistical mechanics, special relativity, and quantum physics. It is based on the lecture notes prepared for the onesemester course of "Quantum Physics" belonging to the Bachelor of Science in Material Sciences at the University of Padova. The first chapter briefly reviews the ideas of classical statistical mechanics introduced by James Clerk Maxwell, Ludwig Boltzmann, Willard Gibbs, and others. The second chapter is devoted to the special relativity of Albert Einstein. In the third chapter, it is historically analyzed the quantization of light due to Max Planck and Albert Einstein, while the fourth chapter discusses the Niels Bohr quantization of the energy levels and the electromagnetic transitions. The fifth chapter investigates the Schrodinger equation, which was obtained by Erwin Schrodinger from the idea of Louis De Broglie to associate to each particle a quantum wavelength. Chapter Six describes the basic axioms of quantum mechanics, which were formulated in the seminal books of Paul Dirac and John von Neumann. In chapter seven, there are several important application of quantum mechanics: the quantum particle in a box, the quantum particle in the harmonic potential, the quantum tunneling, the stationary perturbation theory, and the timedependent perturbation theory. Chapter Eight is devoted to the study of quantum atomic physics with special emphasis on the spin of the electron, which needs the Dirac equation for a rigorous theoretical justification. In the ninth chapter, it is explained the quantum mechanics of many identical particles at zero temperature, while in Chapter Ten the discussion is extended to many quantum particles at finite temperature by introducing and using the quantum statistical mechanics. The four appendices on Dirac delta function, complex numbers, Fourier transform, and differential equations are a useful mathematical aid for the reader
