Title  Facts of Matter and Light : Ten Physics Experiments that Shaped Our Understanding of Nature 
Author(s)  Maes, Christian 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XIII, 175 p. 41 illus., 31 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The main aim of this book is to shine a spotlight on key experiments and their crucial importance for advancing our understanding of physics. Physics is an empirical science, and experiments have always been a driving force in the development of our understanding of nature. Facts matter. In that sense, the book attempts to be complementary to the many popularizations of theoretical physics, and to counterbalance the frequent emphasis there on more speculative ideas. Experimental physics is also an essential pillar in physics teaching, as well as helping broader audiences to better understand important concepts, particularly in challenging fields such as relativity or quantum physics, where our common sense intuition often fails. Readers are taken on an historical journey, starting with ???Free Fall??? and culminating in ???Spooky Action at a Distance???. En route they will encounter many important branches of physics, whose main ideas and theoretical description will be given a more empirical meaning. At the end, the reader is invited to reflect on what could be exciting and important directions for fundamental physics. All readers with an undergraduate degree in physical sciences or engineering will enjoy and learn much from this stimulating and original text

Title  Entangled State Representations in Quantum Optics 
Author(s)  Meng, XiangGuo;Wang, JiSuo;Liang, BaoLong 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  IX, 283 p. 24 illus., 20 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book highlights the applications of continuousvariable entangled state representations in the research areas of quantum optics via the integration method within an ordered product of operators (IWOP). As a way to develop the Dirac???s symbolic method, the IWOP method has made the integration of noncommutative operators possible by arranging noncommutable operators within an ordered product symbol. It not only deals with many existent quantum optics problems but also explores new research fields. The book also establishes a theoretical framework for solving important quantum optics subjects by taking full advantage of the entangled state representations. With original methods and detailed descriptions, the book is suitable for researchers, instructors, and students interested in quantum mechanics, quantum optics, and quantum information science

Title  The QuantumLike Revolution : A Festschrift for Andrei Khrennikov 
Author(s)  Plotnitsky, Arkady;Haven, Emmanuel 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XV, 383 p. 36 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Over the last ten years, elements of the formalism of quantum mechanics have been successfully applied beyond physics in areas such as psychology (especially cognition), economics and finance (especially in the formalization of socalled ???decision making???), political science, and molecular biology. An important stream of work along these lines, commonly under the heading of quantumlike modeling, has been published in well regarded scientific journals, and major publishers have devoted entire books to the topic. This Festschrift honors a key figure in this field of research: Andrei Khrennikov, who made momentous contributions to it and to quantum foundations themselves. While honoring these contributions, and in order to do so, this Festschrift orients its reader toward the future rather than focusing on the past: it addresses future challenges and establishes the way forward in both domains, quantumlike modeling and quantum foundations. A while ago, in response to the developments of using the quantum formalism outside of quantum mechanics, the eminent quantum physicist Anton Zeilinger said, ???Why should it be precisely the quantum mechanics formalism? Maybe its generalization would be more adequate?????? This volume responds to this statement by both showing the reasons for the continuing importance of quantum formalism and yet also considering pathways to such generalizations. Khrennikov???s work has been indispensable in establishing the great promise of quantum and quantumlike thinking in shaping the future of scientific research across the disciplines

Title  Relativistic Quantum Invariance 
Author(s)  Ji, ChuengRyong 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  XIII, 245 p. 125 illus., 107 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes the invariant nature of the relativistic quantum field theories utilizing the idea of interpolating the instant form dynamics and the lightfront dynamics. While the lightfront dynamics (LFD) based on the lightfront time was proposed by Dirac in 1949, there has not yet been a salient review on the connection between the LFD and the instant form dynamics (IFD) based on the ordinary time. By reviewing the connection between LFD and IFD using the idea of interpolating the two different forms of the relativistic dynamics, one can learn the distinguished features of each form and how one may utilize those distinguished features in solving the complicated relativistic quantum field theoretic problems more effectively. With the ongoing 12GeV Jefferson Lab experiments, the internal structures of the nucleon and nuclei are vigorously investigated in particular using the physical observables defined in the LFD rather than in the IFD. This book offers a clear demonstration on why and how the LFD is more advantageous than the IFD for the study of hadron physics, illustrating the differences and similarities between these two distinguished forms of the dynamics. It aims at presenting the basic firsthand knowledge of the relativistic quantum field theories, describing why and how the different forms of dynamics (e.g., IFD and LFD) can emerge in them, connecting the IFD and the LFD using the idea of the interpolation, and demonstrating explicit examples of the interpolation in quantum electrodynamics and other field theories. While the level of presentation is planned mainly for the advanced undergraduate students and the beginning graduate students, the topics of the interpolation between the IFD and the LFD are innovative enough for even the experts in the field to appreciate its usefulness
