It is this stability question that will occupy us in this book. After four decades of development of this subject, during which most of the basic questions have gradually been answered, it seems appropriate to present a thorough review of the material at this time"--Résumé de l'éditeur+-+6366466705974ocn781681883book20120.76Centro internazionale matematico estivoQuantum many body systems Cetraro, Italy 2010The book is based on the lectures given at the CIME school "Quantum many body systems" held in the summer of 2010.

A unique account of the subject, this book provides a complete, self-contained description of research on the stability of matter problem. It introduces the necessary quantum mechanics to mathematicians, and aspects of functional analysis to physicists. The topics covered include electrodynamics of classical and quantized fields, Lieb-Thirring and other inequalities in spectral theory, inequalities in electrostatics, stability of large Coulomb systems, gravitational stability of stars, basics of equilibrium statistical mechanics, and the existence of the thermodynamic limit. The book is an up-to-date account for researchers, and its pedagogical style makes it suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in mathematical physics+-+6366466705+-+6366466705Fri Mar 21 15:44:10 EDT 2014batch8186
