Title  Characterizing Entanglement and Quantum Correlations Constrained by Symmetry 
Author(s)  Tura i Brugu??s, Jordi 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXV, 237 p. 17 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis focuses on the study and characterization of entanglement and nonlocal correlations constrained under symmetries. It includes original results as well as detailed methods and explanations for a number of different threads of research: positive partial transpose (PPT) entanglement in the symmetric states; a novel, experimentally friendly method to detect nonlocal correlations in manybody systems; the nonequivalence between entanglement and nonlocality; and elemental monogamies of correlations. Entanglement and nonlocal correlations constitute two fundamental resources for quantum information processing, as they allow novel tasks that are otherwise impossible in a classical scenario. However, their elusive characterization is still a central problem in quantum information theory. The main reason why such a fundamental issue remains a formidable challenge lies in the exponential growth in complexity of the Hilbert space as well as the space of multipartite correlations. Physical systems of interest, on the other hand, display symmetries that can be exploited to reduce this complexity, opening the possibility that some of these questions become tractable for such systems

Title  Making Sense of Quantum Mechanics 
Author(s)  Bricmont, Jean 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  X, 331 p. 26 illus., 25 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book explains, in simple terms, with a minimum of mathematics, why things can appear to be in two places at the same time, why correlations between simultaneous events occurring far apart cannot be explained by local mechanisms, and why, nevertheless, the quantum theory can be understood in terms of matter in motion. No need to worry, as some people do, whether a cat can be both dead and alive, whether the moon is there when nobody looks at it, or whether quantum systems need an observer to acquire definite properties. The author???s inimitable and even humorous style makes the book a pleasure to read while bringing a new clarity to many of the longstanding puzzles of quantum physics

Title  The Quantum World : Philosophical Debates on Quantum Physics 
Author(s)  d'Espagnat, Bernard;Zwirn, Herv?? 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVII, 299 p. 11 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  In this largely nontechnical book, eminent physicists and philosophers address the philosophical impact of recent advances in quantum physics. These are shown to shed new light on profound questions about realism, determinism, causality or locality. The participants contribute in the spirit of an open and honest discussion, reminiscent of the time when science and philosophy were inseparable. After the editors??? introduction, the next chapter reveals the strangeness of quantum mechanics and the subsequent discussions examine our notion of reality. The spotlight is then turned to the topic of decoherence. Bohm???s theory is critically examined in two chapters, and the relational interpretation of quantum mechanics is likewise described and discussed. The penultimate chapter presents a proposal for resolving the measurement problem, and finally the topic of loop quantum gravity is presented by one of its founding fathers, Carlo Rovelli. The original presentations and discussions on which this volume is based took place under the auspices of the French ???Acad??mie des Sciences Morales et Politiques???. The book will appeal to everybody interested in knowing how our description of the world is impacted by the results of the most powerful and successful theory that physicists have ever built

Title  Foundations of Quantum Mechanics : An Exploration of the Physical Meaning of Quantum Theory 
Author(s)  Norsen, Travis 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XV, 310 p. 70 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Authored by an acclaimed teacher of quantum physics and philosophy, this textbook pays special attention to the aspects that many courses sweep under the carpet. Traditional courses in quantum mechanics teach students how to use the quantum formalism to make calculations. But even the best students  indeed, especially the best students  emerge rather confused about what, exactly, the theory says is going on, physically, in microscopic systems. This supplementary textbook is designed to help such students understand that they are not alone in their confusions (luminaries such as Albert Einstein, Erwin Schroedinger, and John Stewart Bell having shared them), to sharpen their understanding of the most important difficulties associated with interpreting quantum theory in a realistic manner, and to introduce them to the most promising attempts to formulate the theory in a way that is physically clear and coherent. The text is accessible to students with at least one semester of prior exposure to quantum (or "modern") physics and includes over a hundred engaging endofchapter "Projects" that make the book suitable for either a traditional classroom or for selfstudy.

Title  Relativistic ManyBody Theory : A New FieldTheoretical Approach 
Author(s)  Lindgren, Ingvar 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVII, 406 p. 151 illus., 5 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This revised second edition of the author???s classic text offers readers a comprehensively updated review of relativistic atomic manybody theory, covering the many developments in the field since the publication of the original title. In particular, a new final section extends the scope to cover the evaluation of QED effects for dynamical processes. The treatment of the book is based upon quantumfield theory, and demonstrates that when the procedure is carried to all orders of perturbation theory, twoparticle systems are fully compatible with the relativistically covariant BetheSalpeter equation. This procedure can be applied to arbitrary openshell systems, in analogy with the standard manybody theory, and it is also applicable to systems with more than two particles. Presently existing theoretical procedures for treating atomic systems are, in several cases, insufficient to explain the accurate experimental data recently obtained, particularly for highly charged ions. The main text is divided into three parts. In Part I, the standard timeindependent and timedependent perturbation procedures are reviewed. This includes a new section at the end of chapter 2 concerning the socalled ???Fockspace procedure??? or ???Coulombonly procedure??? for relativisticQED calculations. This is a procedure on an intermediate level, frequently u sed in recent time by chemists on molecular systems, where a full QED treatment is out of question. Part II describes three methods for QED calculations, a) the standard Smatrix formulation, b) the Twotimes Green???sfunction method, developed by the St Petersburg Atomic Theory group, and c) the Covariantevolution operator (CEO) method, recently developed by the Gothenburg Atomic Theory group. In Part III, the CEO method is combined with electron correlation to arbitrary order to a unified MBPTQED procedure. The new Part IV includes two new chapters dealing with dynamical properties and how QED effects can be evaluated for such processes. This part is much needed as there has been an increasing interest in the study of QED effects for such processes. All methods treated in the book are illustrated with numerical examples, making it a text suitable for advanced students new to the field and a useful reference for established researchers

Title  Temporal Quantum Correlations and Hidden Variable Models 
Author(s)  Budroni, Costantino 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 114 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  In this thesis, the main approach to the characterization of the set of classical probabilities, the correlation polytope approach, is reviewed for different scenarios, namely, hidden variable models discussed by Bell (local), Kochen and Specker (noncontextual), and Leggett and Garg (macrorealist). Computational difficulties associated with the method are described and a method to overcome them in several nontrivial cases is presented. For the quantum case, a general method to analyze quantum correlations in the sequential measurement scenario is provided, which allows computation of the maximal correlations. Such a method has a direct application for computation of maximal quantum violations of LeggettGarg inequalities and it is relevant in the analysis of noncontextuality tests. Finally, possible applications of the results for quantum information tasks are discussed

Title  From Chemistry to Consciousness : The Legacy of Hans Primas 
Author(s)  Atmanspacher, Harald;M??llerHerold, Ulrich 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XII, 154 p. 26 illus., 11 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book reflects on the significant and highly original scientific contributions of Hans Primas. A professor of chemistry at ETH Zurich from 1962 to 1995, Primas continued his research activities until his death in 2014. Over these 50 years and more, he worked on the foundations of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, contributed to a number of significant issues in theoretical chemistry, helped to clarify central topics in quantum theory and the philosophy of physics, suggested innovative ways of addressing interlevel relations in the philosophy of science, and introduced cuttingedge approaches in the flourishing young field of scientific studies of consciousness. His work in these areas of research and its continuing impact is described by noted experts, colleagues, and collaborators of Primas. All authors contextualize their contributions to facilitate the mutual dialog between these fields
