Title  Introduction to the Physics of Matter : Basic atomic, molecular, and solidstate physics 
Author(s)  by Nicola Manini 
Description  XI, 276 p. 165 illus., 59 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers an uptodate, compact presentation of basic topics in the physics of matter, from atoms to molecules to solids, including elements of statistical mechanics. The adiabatic separation of the motion of electrons and nuclei in matter and its spectroscopic implications are outlined for molecules and recalled regularly in the study of the dynamics of gases and solids. Numerous experiments are described and more than 160 figures give a clear visual impression of the main concepts. Sufficient detail of mathematical derivations is provided to enable students to follow easily. The focus is on presentday understanding and especially on phenomena fitting various independentparticle models. The historical development of this understanding, and phenomena such as magnetism and superconductivity, where interparticle interactions and nonadiabatic effects play a crucial role, are mostly omitted. A final outlook section stimulates the curiosity of the reader to pursue the study of such advanced topics in graduate courses

Title  Mind and reality: The SpaceTime Window 
Author(s)  Wolfram Schommers 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2015. 
Description  xvi, 306p. 
Abstract Note  The relationship between mind and reality is usually perceived as an event that takes place in reality and producing simultaneously an internal image in the mind. So it takes place twice, so to speak, and there is a onetoone correspondence between the two events. Within this conception, matter is embedded in space and time, and can be designated as âcontainerprincipleâ. This monograph emphasizes that the wellknown philosopher Immanuel Kant denied this principle and he stated that reality is principally not recognizable to a human being, and modern biological evolution seems to lead exactly to Kant's point of view. Within the theory of evolution, man's image about reality in mind does not have to be complete and true in the sense of a precise reproduction, and it is relatively easy to recognize that even space and time should not be elements of reality outside. Within this conception, only a certain part of reality, which the human being needs for mastering life, is projected onto space and time, and we come to the socalled âprojection principleâ. Then, spacetime defines the window to reality, leading to a number of exciting and essential questions, some of which are discussed in this monograph.
As is known, current physics is mainly based on the containerprinciple. But this monograph proposes that the projection principle is obviously more suitable and could help to solve openended questions as, for example, in connection with the nature of time, the particlewave duality, the cosmological constant, etc. Regarding the statistical behavior of matter, Einstein's statement "God does not play dice" has to be seen in a new light, but also Feynman's general viewpoint on quantum theory that it cannot be understood by man. However, conventional quantum theory is obviously not a consistent framework as per the projection principle. The term âworld equationâ is critically probed in this monograph.

Title  Quantum state transfer and network engineering 
Author(s)  Georgios M. Nikolopoulos (ed.);Igor Jex (ed.) 
Description  1 online resource (x, 250 pages) : illustrations (some color) 
Abstract Note  Faithful communication is a necessary precondition for largescale quantum information processing and networking, irrespective of the physical platform. Thus, the problems of quantumstate transfer and quantumnetwork engineering have attracted enormous interest over the last years, and constitute one of the most active areas of research in quantum information processing. The present volume introduces the reader to fundamental concepts and various aspects of this exciting research area, including links to other related areas and problems. The implementation of statetransfer schemes and the engineering of quantum networks are discussed in the framework of various quantum optical and condensed matter systems, emphasizing the interdisciplinary character of the research area. Each chapter is a review of theoretical or experimental achievements on a particular topic, written by leading scientists in the field. The volume aims at both newcomers as well as experienced researchers 
Contents Note  Spin Chains as Data Buses, Logic Buses and Entanglers  Communication in Engineered Quantum Networks  Dual and Multirail Encoding  Quantum State Transfer with Limited Resources  Robustness of Spinchain Statetransfer Schemes  Implementation of State Transfer Hamiltonians in Spin Chains with Magnetic Resonance Techniques  State Transfer Hamiltonians in Photonic Lattices

Title  Relativistic manybody theory : a new fieldtheoretical approach 
Author(s)  Ingvar Lindgren 
Publication  New York, Springer, 2011. 
Description  1 online resource (xviii, 365 p.) 
Abstract Note  This book gives a comprehensive account of relativistic manybody perturbation theory, based upon field theory. After some introductory chapters about timeindependent and time dependent manybody perturbation theory (MBPT), the standard techniques of Smatrix and Green's functions are reviewed. Next, the newly introduced covariantevolutionoperator method is described, which can be used, like the Smatrix method, for calculations in quantum electrodynamics (QED). Unlike the Smatrix method, this has a structure that is similar to that of MBPT and therefore can serve as basis for a unified th
