Title  Optically Trapped Microspheres as Sensors of Mass and Sound : Brownian Motion as Both Signal and Noise 
Author(s)  Hillberry, Logan Edward 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XVI, 115 p. 44 illus., 39 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis makes significant advances in the use of microspheres in optical traps as highly precise sensing platforms. While optically trapped microspheres have recently proven their dominance in aqueous and vacuum environments, achieving stateoftheart measurements of miniscule forces and torques, their sensitivity to perturbations in air has remained relatively unexplored. This thesis shows that, by uniquely operating in air and measuring its thermallyfluctuating instantaneous velocity, an optically trapped microsphere is an ultrasensitive probe of both mass and sound. The mass of the microsphere is determined with similar accuracy to competitive methods but in a fraction of the measurement time and all while maintaining thermal equilibrium, unlike alternative methods. As an acoustic transducer, the airbased microsphere is uniquely sensitive to the velocity of sound, as opposed to the pressure measured by a traditional microphone. By comparison to stateoftheart commerciallyavailable velocity and pressure sensors, including the world???s smallest measurement microphone, the microsphere sensing modality is shown to be both accurate and to have superior sensitivity at high frequencies. Applications for such highfrequency acoustic sensing include dosage monitoring in proton therapy for cancer and event discrimination in bubble chamber searches for dark matter. In addition to reporting these scientific results, the thesis is pedagogically organized to present the relevant history, theory, and technology in a straightforward way

Title  Entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics : or Why Things Tend to Go Wrong and Seem to Get Worse 
Author(s)  Fleck, Robert 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XI, 130 p. 21 illus., 17 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is a brief and accessible popular science text intended for a broad audience and of particular interest also to science students and specialists. Using a minimum of mathematics, a number of qualitative and quantitative examples, and clear illustrations, the author explains the science of thermodynamics in its full historical context, focusing on the concepts of energy and its availability and transformation in thermodynamic processes. His ultimate aim is to gain a deep understanding of the second law???the increase of entropy???and its rather disheartening message of a universe descending inexorably into chaos and disorder. It also examines the connection between the second law and why things go wrong in our daily lives. Readers will enhance their science literacy and feel more at home on the science side of author C. P. Snow's celebrated twoculture, sciencehumanities divide, and hopefully will feel more at home in the universe knowing that the disorder we deal with in our daily lives is not anyone's fault but Nature's.

Title  Lectures on the Random Field Ising Model : From ParisiSourlas Supersymmetry to Dimensional Reduction 
Author(s)  Rychkov, Slava 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  IX, 64 p. 23 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is about the Random Field Ising Model (RFIM) ??? a paradigmatic spin model featuring a frozen disordering field. The focus is on the secondorder phase transition between the paramagnetic and ferromagnetic phases, and the associated critical exponents. The book starts by summarizing the current knowledge about the RFIM from experiments, numerical simulations and rigorous mathematical results. It then reviews the classic theoretical works from the 1970???s which suggested a property of dimensional reduction ??? that the RFIM critical exponents should be the same as for the ordinary, nondisordered, Ising model of lower dimensionality, and related this an emergent ParisiSourlas supersymmetry. As is now known, these remarkable properties only hold when the spatial dimensionality of the model is larger than a critical dimension. The book presents a method to estimate the critical dimension, using standard tools such as the replica trick and perturbative renormalization group, whose result is in agreement with the numerical simulations. Some more elementary steps in the derivations are left as exercises for the readers. This book is of interest to researchers, PhD students and advanced master students specializing in statistical field theory

Title  NonFourier Heat Conduction : From PhaseLag Models to Relativistic and Quantum Transport 
Author(s)  Zhmakin, Alexander I 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  IX, 422 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a broad and wellstructured overview of various nonFourier heat conduction models. The classical Fourier heat conduction model is valid for most macroscopic problems. However, it fails when the wave nature of the heat propagation becomes dominant and memory or nonlocal spatial effects become significant; e.g., during ultrafast heating, heat transfer at the nanoscale, in granular and porous materials, at extremely high values of the heat flux, or in heat transfer in biological tissues. The book looks at numerous nonFourier heat conduction models that incorporate time nonlocality for materials with memory, such as hereditary materials, including fractional hereditary materials, and/or spatial nonlocality, i.e. materials with a nonhomogeneous inner structure. Beginning with an introduction to classical transport theory, including phaselag, phonon, and thermomass models, the book then looks at various aspects of relativistic and quantum transport, including approaches based on the Landauer formalism as well as the GreenKubo theory of linear response. Featuring an appendix that provides an introduction to methods in fractional calculus, this book is a valuable resource for any researcher interested in theoretical and numerical aspects of complex, nontrivial heat conduction problems

Title  Statistical Methods for Data Analysis : With Applications in Particle Physics 
Author(s)  Lista, Luca 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XXX, 334 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This third edition expands on the original material. Large portions of the text have been reviewed and clarified. More emphasis is devoted to machine learning including more modern concepts and examples. This book provides the reader with the main concepts and tools needed to perform statistical analyses of experimental data, in particular in the field of highenergy physics (HEP). It starts with an introduction to probability theory and basic statistics, mainly intended as a refresher from readers??? advanced undergraduate studies, but also to help them clearly distinguish between the Frequentist and Bayesian approaches and interpretations in subsequent applications. Following, the author discusses Monte Carlo methods with emphasis on techniques like Markov Chain Monte Carlo, and the combination of measurements, introducing the best linear unbiased estimator. More advanced concepts and applications are gradually presented, including unfolding and regularization procedures, culminating in the chapter devoted to discoveries and upper limits. The reader learns through many applications in HEP where the hypothesis testing plays a major role and calculations of lookelsewhere effect are also presented. Many workedout examples help newcomers to the field and graduate students alike understand the pitfalls involved in applying theoretical concepts to actual data

Title  Stochastic Mechanics : The Unification of Quantum Mechanics with Brownian Motion 
Author(s)  Kuipers, Folkert 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  IX, 125 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Stochastic mechanics is a theory that holds great promise in resolving the mathematical and interpretational issues encountered in the canonical and path integral formulations of quantum theories. It provides an equivalent formulation of quantum theories, but substantiates it with a mathematically rigorous stochastic interpretation by means of a stochastic quantization prescription. The book builds on recent developments in this theory, and shows that quantum mechanics can be unified with the theory of Brownian motion in a single mathematical framework. Moreover, it discusses the extension of the theory to curved spacetime using second order geometry, and the induced It?? deformations of the spacetime symmetries. The book is selfcontained and provides an extensive review of stochastic mechanics of the single spinless particle. The book builds up the theory on a step by step basis. It starts, in chapter 2, with a review of the classical particle subjected to scalar and vector potentials. In chapter 3, the theory is extended to the study of a Brownian motion in any potential, by the introduction of a Gaussian noise. In chapter 4, the Gaussian noise is complexified. The result is a complex diffusion theory that contains both Brownian motion and quantum mechanics as a special limit. In chapters 5, the theory is extended to relativistic diffusion theories. In chapter 6, the theory is further generalized to the context of pseudoRiemannian geometry. Finally, in chapter 7, some interpretational aspects of the stochastic theory are discussed in more detail. The appendices concisely review relevant notions from probability theory, stochastic processes, stochastic calculus, stochastic differential geometry and stochastic variational calculus. The book is aimed at graduate students and researchers in theoretical physics and applied mathematics with an interest in the foundations of quantum theory andBrownian motion. The book can be used as reference material for courses on and further research in stochastic mechanics, stochastic quantization, diffusion theories on curved spacetimes and quantum gravity

Title  The PoissonBoltzmann Equation : An Introduction 
Author(s)  Blossey, Ralf 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XIV, 101 p. 20 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This brief book introduces the PoissonBoltzmann equation in three chapters that build upon one another, offering a systematic entry to advanced students and researchers. Chapter one formulates the equation and develops the linearized version of DebyeH??ckel theory as well as exact solutions to the nonlinear equation in simple geometries and generalizations to higherorder equations. Chapter two introduces the statistical physics approach to the PoissonBoltzmann equation. It allows the treatment of fluctuation effects, treated in the loop expansion, and in a variational approach. First applications are treated in detail: the problem of the surface tension under the addition of salt, a classic problem discussed by Onsager and Samaras in the 1930s, which is developed in modern terms within the loop expansion, and the adsorption of a charged polymer on a likecharged surface within the variational approach. Chapter three finally discusses the extension of PoissonBoltzmann theory to explicit solvent. This is done in two ways: on the phenomenological level of nonlocal electrostatics and with a statistical physics model that treats the solvent molecules as molecular dipoles. This model is then treated in the meanfield approximation and with the variational method introduced in Chapter two, rounding up the development of the mathematical approaches of PoissonBoltzmann theory. After studying this book, a graduate student will be able to access the research literature on the PoissonBoltzmann equation with a solid background.

Title  Heisenberg???s Uncertainty Principle and the Electron Statistics in Quantized Structures 
Author(s)  Ghatak, Kamakhya Prasad;Mitra, Madhuchhanda;Biswas, Arindam 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  XXVI, 234 p. 133 illus., 63 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book highlights the importance of Electron Statistics (ES), which occupies a singular position in the arena of solid state sciences, in heavily doped (HD) nanostructures by applying Heisenberg???s Uncertainty Principle directly without using the complicated DensityofStates function approach as given in the literature. The materials considered are HD quantum confined nonlinear optical, IIIV, IIVI, IVVI, GaP, Ge, PtSb2, stressed materials, GaSb, Te, IIV, Bi2Te3, lead germanium telluride, zinc and cadmium diphosphides, and quantum confined IIIV, IVVI, IIVI and HgTe/CdTe superlattices with graded interfaces and effective mass superlattices. The presence of intense light waves in optoelectronics and strong electric field in nanodevices change the band structure of materials in fundamental ways, which have also been incorporated in the study of ES in HD quantized structures of optoelectronic compounds that control the studies of the HD quantum effect devices under strong fields. The influence of magnetic quantization, magneto size quantization, quantum wells, wires and dots, crossed electric and quantizing fields, intense electric field, and light waves on the ES in HD quantized structures and superlattices are discussed. The content of this book finds six different applications in the arena of nanoscience and nanotechnology and the various ES dependent electronic quantities, namely the effective mass, the screening length, the Einstein relation and the elastic constants have been investigated. This book is useful for researchers, engineers and professionals in the fields of Applied Sciences, solid state and materials science, nanoscience and technology, condensed matter physics, and allied fields, including courses in semiconductor nanostructures
