Title  On Generalised Statistical Equilibrium and Discrete Quantum Gravity 
Author(s)  Kotecha, Isha 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIX, 180 p. 25 illus., 5 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Absolute concepts of time and energy are integral to standard thermal physics, but background independent systems are devoid of them. This thesis explores the foundational question of generalising equilibrium statistical mechanics to background independent systems, and applies the resulting formulation to nonperturbative discrete quantum gravity. It offers a discussion of the rich interface of thermal physics and quantum gravity in this context, providing a broad contextualisation of such topics. This work details how standard tools from manybody physics can be generalised to discrete quantum gravity labelled with graphbased, or dual polyhedral, quanta that are common to various approaches like tensorial group field theory, loop quantum gravity, dynamical triangulations and lattice quantum gravity. It provides a systematic investigation, both conceptual and technical, of quantum gravitational Gibbs states, thermofield double vacuum states, and their application in condensate cosmology to probe questions of Big Bang singularity resolution and geometric inflation

Title  Albert Einstein, Boris Podolsky, Nathan Rosen : Can QuantumMechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete? 
Author(s)  Kiefer, Claus 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Birkh??user
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  VII, 114 p. 7 illus., 3 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The work published by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen (EPR) in 1935 is a classic in modern physics. It discusses, for the first time, the central feature of the quantum theory: entanglement. In general, systems are intertwined with each other in nature; that is, they have only one common, nondivisible state. This fact is responsible for all the oddities commonly associated with quantum theory, including the famous thought experiments with Schr??dinger???s cat and Wigner???s friend. The entanglement of quantum mechanics plays a central role in experiments with atoms and photons (Nobel Prize 2012 for Haroche and Wineland) and the planned construction of quantum computers. This book presents EPR???s original work amplified with a detailed commentary, which examines both the historical context and all aspects of entanglement. In particular, it focuses on the interpretation of quantum theory and its consequences for a basic understanding of nature

Title  Nonclassical Effects and Dynamics of Quantum Observables 
Author(s)  Lakshmibala, S;Balakrishnan, V 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XI, 130 p. 51 illus., 44 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book explores interesting possibilities of extracting information about quantum states from data readily obtained from experiments, such as tomograms and expectation values of appropriate observables. The procedures suggested for identifying nonclassical e???ects such as wave packet revivals, squeezing and entanglement solely from tomograms circumvent detailed state reconstruction. Several bipartite entanglement indicators are de???ned based on tomograms, and their e???cacy assessed in models of atom???eld interactions and qubit systems. Tools of classical ergodic theory such as time series and network analysis are applied to quantum observables treated as dynamical variables. This brings out novel aspects involving di???erent time scales. The book is aimed at researchers in the areas of quantum optics and quantum dynamics

Title  Schr??dinger Theory of Electrons: Complementary Perspectives 
Author(s)  Sahni, Viraht 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVIII, 407 p. 54 illus., 41 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a complementary perspective to Schr??dinger theory of electrons in an electromagnetic field, one that does not appear in any text on quantum mechanics. The perspective, derived from Schr??dinger theory, is that of the individual electron in the sea of electrons via its temporal and stationarystate equations of motion ??? the ???Quantal Newtonian??? Second and First Laws. The Laws are in terms of ???classical??? fields experienced by each electron, the sources of the fields being quantummechanical expectation values of Hermitian operators taken with respect to the wave function. Each electron experiences the external field, and internal fields representative of properties of the system, and a field descriptive of its response. The energies are obtained in terms of the fields. The ???Quantal Newtonian??? Laws lead to physical insights, and new properties of the electronic system are revealed. New mathematical understandings of Schr??dinger theory emerge which show the equation to be intrinsically selfconsistent. Another complimentary perspective to Schr??dinger theory is its manifestation as a local effective potential theory described via Quantal Density Functional theory. This description too is in terms of ???classical??? fields and quantal sources. The theory provides a rigorous physical explanation of the mapping from the interacting system to the local potential theory equivalent. The complementary perspective to stationary ground state Schr??dinger theory founded in the theorems of Hohenberg and Kohn, their extension to the presence of a magnetic field and to the temporal domain ??? Modern Density Functional Theory  is also described. The new perspectives are elucidated by application to analytically solvable interacting systems. These solutions and other relevant wave function properties are derived

Title  Feynman Integrals : A Comprehensive Treatment for Students and Researchers 
Author(s)  Weinzierl, Stefan 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIV, 857 p. 142 illus., 32 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook on Feynman integrals starts from the basics, requiring only knowledge of special relativity and undergraduate mathematics. Feynman integrals are indispensable for precision calculations in quantum field theory. At the same time, they are also fascinating from a mathematical point of view. Topics from quantum field theory and advanced mathematics are introduced as needed. The book covers modern developments in the field of Feynman integrals. Topics included are: representations of Feynman integrals, integrationbyparts, differential equations, intersection theory, multiple polylogarithms, GelfandKapranovZelevinsky systems, coactions and symbols, cluster algebras, elliptic Feynman integrals, and motives associated with Feynman integrals. This volume is aimed at a) students at the master's level in physics or mathematics, b) physicists who want to learn how to calculate Feynman integrals (for whom stateoftheart techniques and computations are provided), and c) mathematicians who are interested in the mathematical aspects underlying Feynman integrals. It is, indeed, the interwoven nature of their physical and mathematical aspects that make Feynman integrals so enthralling

Title  Testing Quantum Theory with HigherOrder Interference in ManyParticle Correlations 
Author(s)  Pleinert, MarcOliver 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XV, 200 p. 62 illus., 55 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The structure of quantum theory permits interference of indistinguishable paths. At the same time, however, it also limits such interference to certain orders and any higherorder interference is prohibited. This thesis develops and studies concepts to test quantum theory with higherorder interference using manyparticle correlations, the latter being generally richer and typically more subtle than singleparticle correlations. It is demonstrated that quantum theory in general allows for interference up to order 2M in Mparticle correlations. Depending on the mutual coherence of the particles, however, the related interference hierarchy can terminate earlier. In this thesis, we show that mutually coherent particles can exhibit interference of the highest orders allowed. We further demonstrate that interference of mutually incoherent particles truncates already at order M+1, although interference of the latter is principally more multifaceted than their coherent counterpart. We introduce two families of manyparticle Sorkin parameters, whose members are expected to be all zero when quantum mechanics holds. As proof of concept, we demonstrate the disparate vanishing of such higherorder interference terms as a function of coherence in experiments with mutually coherent and incoherent sources. Finally, we investigate the influence of exotic kinked or looped quantum paths, which are permitted by Feynman???s path integral approach, in such setups
