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  A Simplified Approach to the Classical Laminate Theory of Composite Materials : Application of Bar and Beam Elements 
Author(s)  ??chsner, Andreas 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XII, 122 p. 64 illus., 27 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a systematic introduction to composite materials, which are obtained by a layerwise stacking of onedimensional bar/beam elements. Each layer may have different mechanical properties but each single layer is considered as isotropic. The major idea is to provide a simplified theory to easier understand the classical twodimensional laminate theory for composites based on laminae with unidirectional fibers. In addition to the elastic behavior, failure is investigated based on the maximum stress, maximum strain, TsaiHill, and the TsaiWu criteria. Partial differential equations lay the foundation to mathematically describe the mechanical behavior of any classical structural member known in engineering mechanics, including composite materials. The socalled classical laminate theory provides a simplified stress analysis, and a subsequent failure analysis, without the solution of the system of coupled differential equations for the unknown displacements. Theprocedure provides the solution of a statically indeterminate system based on a generalized stress???strain relationship under consideration of the constitutive relationship and the definition of the socalled stress resultants. This laminate theory is typically provided for twodimensional plane problems, where the basic structural element is a simple superposition of a classical plane elasticity element with a thin plate element under the consideration of an orthotropic constitutive law. This twodimensional approach and the underlying advanced continuum mechanical modeling might be very challenging for some students, particularly at universities of applied sciences. Thus, a reduced approach, the socalled simplified classical laminate theory, has been developed. The idea is to use solely isotropic onedimensional elements, i.e., a superposition of bar and beam elements, to introduce the major calculation steps of the classical laminate theory. Understanding this simplified theory is much easier and the final step it to highlight the differences when moving to the general twodimensional case

Title  The Probability Integral : Its Origin, Its Importance, and Its Calculation 
Author(s)  Nahin, Paul J 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XXX, 189 p. 34 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book tells the story of the probability integral, the approaches to analyzing it throughout history, and the many areas of science where it arises. The socalled probability integral, the integral over the real line of a Gaussian function, occurs ubiquitously in mathematics, physics, engineering and probability theory. Stubbornly resistant to the undergraduate toolkit for handling integrals, calculating its value and investigating its properties occupied such mathematical luminaries as De Moivre, Laplace, Poisson, and Liouville. This book introduces the probability integral, puts it into a historical context, and describes the different approaches throughout history to evaluate and analyze it. The author also takes entertaining diversions into areas of math, science, and engineering where the probability integral arises: as well as being indispensable to probability theory and statistics, it also shows up naturally in thermodynamics and signal processing. Designed to be accessibleto anyone at the undergraduate level and above, this book will appeal to anyone interested in integration techniques, as well as historians of math, science, and statistics

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  Problems and Solutions on Vector Spaces for Physicists : From Part I in Mathematical Physics???A Modern Introduction to Its Foundations 
Author(s)  Scott, Robert B 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XV, 178 p. 2 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers supporting material for the comprehensive textbook Mathematical Physics???A Modern Introduction to Its Foundations authored by Sadri Hassani. The book covers mathematical preliminaries and all of Part I in Hassani???s textbook. The subjects covered here include the key topics necessary for physicists to form a solid mathematical foundation: vectors and linear maps, algebras, operators, matrices, and spectral decomposition. In particular, the vector space concept is a central unifying theme in later chapters of Hassani???s textbook. Detailed solutions are provided to one third of the endofchapter exercises in the first six chapters of his text. The present volume helps upperundergraduate and early postgraduate physics students deepen their understanding of the mathematics that they encounter in physics, learn physics more efficiently, and use mathematics with more confidence and creativity. The content is thus presented rigorously but remains accessible tophysics students. New exercises are also proposed, some with solutions, some without, so that the total number of unsolved exercises remains unchanged. They are chosen to help explain difficult concepts, amplify key points in Hassani's textbook, or make further connections with applications in physics. Taken together with Hassani's work, the two form a selfcontained set and the solutions make detailed reference to Hassani's text. The solutions also refer to other mathematics and physics textbooks, providing entry points to further literature that finds a useful place in the physicist's personal library

Title  Quantum Mechanics : Axiomatic Approach and Understanding Through Mathematics 
Author(s)  Das, Tapan Kumar 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  XV, 314 p. 37 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a clear understanding of quantum mechanics (QM) by developing it from fundamental postulates in an axiomatic manner, as its central theme. The target audience is physics students at master???s level. It avoids historical developments, which are piecemeal, not logically well knitted, and may lead to misconceptions. Instead, in the present approach all of QM and all its rules are developed logically starting from the fundamental postulates only and no other assumptions. Specially noteworthy topics have been developed in a smooth contiguous fashion following the central theme. They provide a new approach to understanding QM. In most other texts, these are presented as disjoint separate topics. Since the reader may not be acquainted with advanced mathematical topics like linear vector space, a number of such topics have been presented as ???mathematical preliminary.??? Standard topics, viz. derivation of uncertainty relations, simple harmonic oscillator by operator method,bound systems in one and three dimensions, angular momentum, hydrogenlike atom, and scattering in one and three dimensions, are woven into the central theme. Advanced topics like approximation methods, spin and generalized angular momenta, addition of angular momenta, and relativistic quantum mechanics have been reserved for Volume II

Title  The Pursuit of Reality : Narrative History of the Quantum and the Great Minds That Made it 
Author(s)  Bay??n, Sel??uk ?? 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  IX, 228 p. 55 illus., 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  In a highly accessible style, this book presents a narrative history of the quantum theory with the new developments that intrigue all inquisitive minds. Quantum theory is counterintuitive and sometimes downright weird. Even Nobel Laureate physicists like Richard Feynman admit that they do not understand it. Yet, so far, there is not a shred of experimental data that conflicts with its predictions. Its effect on our lives is bound to increase with the quantum information era ushered in by the great Bohr???Einstein debate. Tantalizing applications of quantum information like teleportation, spyproof communication, superfast quantum computers, and more are going to influence our lives and change our beliefs about the nature of physical reality. This book takes the reader on an exhilarating journey through the intellectual history of quantum that is turning out to be more surprising every day
