Title  Gauge Invariance and Weylpolymer Quantization 
Author(s)  Strocchi, Franco 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  X, 97 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book gives an introduction to Weyl nonregular quantization suitable for the description of physically interesting quantum systems, where the traditional DiracHeisenberg quantization is not applicable.?? The latter implicitly assumes that the canonical variables describe observables, entailing necessarily the regularity of their exponentials (Weyl operators). However, in physically interesting cases  typically in the presence of a gauge symmetry  nonobservable canonical variables are introduced for the description of the states, namely of the relevant representations of the observable algebra. In general, a gauge invariant ground state defines a nonregular representation of the gauge dependent Weyl operators, providing a mathematically consistent treatment of familiar quantum systems  such as the electron in a periodic potential (Bloch electron), the Quantum Hall electron, or the quantum particle on a circle  where the gauge transformations are, respectively, the lattice translations, the magnetic translations and the rotations of 2??. Relevant examples are also provided by quantum gauge field theory models, in particular by the temporal gauge of Quantum Electrodynamics, avoiding the conflict between the Gauss law constraint and the DiracHeisenberg canonical quantization. The same applies to Quantum Chromodynamics, where the nonregular quantization of the temporal gauge provides a simple solution of the U(1) problem and a simple link between the vacuum structure and the topology of the gauge group. Last but not least, Weyl nonregular quantization is briefly discussed from the perspective of the socalled polymer representations proposed for Loop Quantum Gravity in connection with diffeomorphism invariant vacuum states

Title  Ensembles on Configuration Space : Classical, Quantum, and Beyond 
Author(s)  Hall, Michael J. W;Reginatto, Marcel 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIV, 280 p. 3 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes a promising approach to problems in the foundations of quantum mechanics, including the measurement problem. The dynamics of ensembles on configuration space is shown here to be a valuable tool for unifying the formalisms of classical and quantum mechanics, for deriving and extending the latter in various ways, and for addressing the quantum measurement problem. A description of physical systems by means of ensembles on configuration space can be introduced at a very fundamental level: the basic building blocks are a configuration space, probabilities, and Hamiltonian equations of motion for the probabilities. The formalism can describe both classical and quantum systems, and their thermodynamics, with the main difference being the choice of ensemble Hamiltonian. Furthermore, there is a natural way of introducing ensemble Hamiltonians that describe the evolution of hybrid systems; i.e., interacting systems that have distinct classical and quantum sectors, allowing for consistent descriptions of quantum systems interacting with classical measurement devices and quantum matter fields interacting gravitationally with a classical spacetime

Title  Operational Symmetries : Basic Operations in Physics 
Author(s)  Saller, Heinrich 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XI, 574 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes the endeavour to relate the particle spectrum with representations of operational electroweak spacetime, in analogy to the atomic spectrum as characterizing representations of hyperbolic space. The spectrum of hyperbolic position space explains the properties of the nonrelativistic atoms; the spectrum of electroweak spacetime is hoped to explain those of the basic interactions and elementary particles. In this book, the theory of operational symmetries is developed from the numbers, from Plato???s and Kepler???s symmetries over the simple Lie groups to their applications in nonrelativistic, special relativistic and general relativistic quantum theories with the atomic spectrum for hyperbolic position and, in first attempts, the particle spectrum for electroweak spacetime. The standard model of elementary particles and interactions is characterized by a symmetry group. In general, as initiated by Weyl and stressed by Heisenberg, quantum theory can be built as a theory of operation groups and their unitary representations. In such a framework, time, position and spacetime is modeled by equivalence classes of symmetry groups. For a unification on this road, the quest is not for a final theory with a basic equation for basic particles, but for the basic operation group and its representations.

Title  The Quantum Handshake : Entanglement, Nonlocality and Transactions 
Author(s)  Cramer, John G 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XXV, 218 p. 90 illus., 34 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book shines bright light into the dim recesses of quantum theory, where the mysteries of entanglement, nonlocality, and wave collapse have motivated some to conjure up multiple universes, and others to adopt a "shut up and calculate" mentality. After an extensive and accessible introduction to quantum mechanics and its history, the author turns attention to his transactional model. Using a quantum handshake between normal and timereversed waves, this model provides a clear visual picture explaining the baffling experimental results that flow daily from the quantum physics laboratories of the world. To demonstrate its powerful simplicity, the transactional model is applied to a collection of counterintuitive experiments and conceptual problems

Title  Tensor Network States and Effective Particles for LowDimensional Quantum Spin Systems 
Author(s)  Vanderstraeten, Laurens 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIII, 219 p. 54 illus., 48 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis develops new techniques for simulating the lowenergy behaviour of quantum spin systems in one and two dimensions. Combining these developments, it????subsequently uses the formalism of tensor network states to derive an effective particle description for one and twodimensional spin systems that exhibit strong quantum correlations. These techniques arise from the combination of two themes in manyparticle physics: (i) the concept of quasiparticles as the effective lowenergy degrees of freedom in a condensedmatter system, and (ii) entanglement as the characteristic feature for describing quantum phases of matter. Whereas the former gave rise to the use of effective field theories for understanding manyparticle systems, the latter led to the development of tensor network states as a description of the entanglement distribution in quantum lowenergy states

Title  TwentyFirst Century Quantum Mechanics: Hilbert Space to Quantum Computers : Mathematical Methods and Conceptual Foundations 
Author(s)  Fano, Guido;Blinder, S M 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVI, 271 p. 142 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is designed to make accessible to nonspecialists the still evolving concepts of quantum mechanics and the terminology in which these are expressed. The opening chapters summarize elementary concepts of twentieth century quantum mechanics and describe the mathematical methods employed in the field, with clear explanation of, for example, Hilbert space, complex variables, complex vector spaces and Dirac notation, and the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. After detailed discussion of the Schr??dinger equation, subsequent chapters focus on isotropic vectors, used to construct spinors, and on conceptual problems associated with measurement, superposition, and decoherence in quantum systems. Here, due attention is paid to Bell???s inequality and the possible existence of hidden variables. Finally, progression toward quantum computation is examined in detail: if quantum computers can be made practicable, enormous enhancements in computing power, artificial intelligence, and secure communication will result. This book will be of interest to a wide readership seeking to understand modern quantum mechanics and its potential applications

Title  Problems in Quantum Mechanics : with Solutions 
Author(s)  d'Emilio, Emilio;Picasso, Luigi E 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XI, 383 p. 100 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This second edition of an extremely wellreceived book presents more than 250 nonrelativistic quantum mechanics problems of varying difficulty with the aim of providing students didactic material of proven value, allowing them to test their comprehension and mastery of each subject. The coverage is extremely broad, from themes related to the crisis of classical physics through achievements within the framework of modern atomic physics to lively debated, intriguing aspects relating to, for example, the EPR paradox, the AharonovBohm effect, and quantum teleportation. Compared with the first edition, a variety of improvements have been made and additional topics of interest included, especially focusing on elementary potential scattering. The problems themselves range from standard and straightforward ones to those that are complex but can be considered essential because they address questions of outstanding importance or aspects typically overlooked in primers. The book offers students both an excellent tool for independent learning and a readyreference guide they can return to later in their careers

Title  Applied Research of Quantum Information Based on Linear Optics 
Author(s)  Xu, Xiaoye 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016. 
Description  XXIII, 126 p. 48 illus., 17 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis reports on outstanding work in two main subfields of quantum information science: one involves the quantum measurement problem, and the other concerns quantum simulation. The thesis proposes using a polarizationbased displaced Sagnactype interferometer to achieve partial collapse measurement and its reversal, and presents the first experimental verification of the nonlocality of the partial collapse measurement and its reversal. All of the experiments are carried out in the linear optical system, one of the earliest experimental systems to employ quantum communication and quantum information processing. The thesis argues that quantum measurement can yield quantum entanglement recovery, which is demonstrated by using the frequency freedom to simulate the environment. Based on the weak measurement theory, the author proposes that white light can be used to precisely estimate phase, and effectively demonstrates that the imaginary part of the weak value can be introduced by means of weak measurement evolution. Lastly, a nineorder polarizationbased displaced Sagnactype interferometer employing bulk optics is constructed to perform quantum simulation of the LandauZener evolution, and by tuning the system Hamiltonian, the first experiment to research the KibbleZurek mechanism in nonequilibrium kinetics processes is carried out in the linear optical system
