Solid state physics of finite systems : metal clusters, fullerenes, atomic wires by R. A Broglia( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book surveys the physics of the quantum, finite many-body systems that are the basis of nanostructures such as fullerenes and metal clusters. The ab-initio techniques for describing the single-particle motion (electrons) and the collective degrees of freedom (plasmons and phonons) and their interaction are discussed in detail and applied to the study of phenomena such as the electromagnetic response and superconductivity of these systems. Built around current research and drawing upon lectures given to advanced undergraduates, the book will interest students, young researchers and practitioners in the fields of solid-state and atomic physics and physical chemistry. TOC:Introduction.- Overview.- Electronic Structure.- Electronic Response to Time-Dependent Perturbations.- Applications to Carbon Structures.- The Harmonic Approximation and Phonons.- The Car-Parrinello Method.- Electron-Phonon Interaction.- Pairing in Atomic Aggregates

The response of nuclei under extreme conditions by R. A Broglia( Book )

10 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, a new field of nuclear research has been opened through the possibility of studying nuclei wi\h very large values of angular momentum, temperature, pressure and number of particles. This development has been closely associated with heavy ion reactions, since collisions between two heavy nuclei are especially effective in producing metastable compound systems with large angular momentum, and in transferring energy which is distributed over the whole nuclear volume. Under the strain of temperature and of the Coriolis and centrifugal forces, the nucleus displays structural changes which can be interpreted in terms of pairing and shape phase transit ions. This was the subject of the lectures of J.D. Garrett, P.J. Twin and S. Levit. While the rotational motion is, at zero temperature un damped, the width of giant resonances indicate that the nucleus only oscillates through few periods before the motion is damp ed by particle decay, and through coupling to the compound nucleus. Temperature and angular momentum influence in an im portant way the properties of both giant resonances and rotatio nal motion. These subjects were developed by K. Snover, and by P.F. Bortignon and R.A. Broglia, as well as by A. Bracco, A. Dellafiore and F. Matera

One of the great unsolved problems of science and also physics is the prediction of the three dimensional structure of a protein from its amino acid sequence: the folding problem. It may be stated that the deep connection existing between physics and protein folding is not so much, or in any case not only, through physical methods (experimental: X-rays, NMR, etc, or theoretical: statistical mechanics, spin glasses, etc), but through physical concepts. In fact, protein folding can be viewed as an emergent roperty not contained neither in the atoms forming the protein nor in the forces acting among them, in a similar way as superconductivity emerges as an unexpected coherent phenomenon taking place on a sea of electrons at low temperature. Already much is kown about the protein folding problem, thanks, among other things, to protein engineering experiments as well as from a variety of theoretical inputs: inverse folding problem, funnel-like energy landscapes (Peter Wolynes), helix-coil transitions, etc. Altough quite different in appearance, the fact that the variety of models can account for much of the experimental?ndings is likely due to the fact that they contain much of the same (right) physics. A physics which is related to the important role played y selected highly conserved, "hot", amino acids which participate to the stability of independent folding units which, upon docking, give rise to a (post-critical) folding nucleus lying beyond the highest maximum of the free energy associated to the proces

Fifty years of nuclear BCS : pairing in finite systems by Vladimir Zelevinsky( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This unique volume reviews more than fifty years of theoretical and experimental developments of the concept that properties of atomic nuclei up to a great extent are defined by the pair correlations of nuclear constituents -- protons and neutrons. Such correlations in condensed matter are responsible for quantum phenomena on a macroscopic level -- superfluidity and superconductivity. After introducing Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) theory of superconductivity of metals, it became clear that atomic nuclei have properties of superfluid drops, and practically all features of nuclei strongly depend on the pair correlations. Presenting a comprehensive overview of the progress of nuclear science, the contributions from leading physicists around the world, cover the whole spectrum of studies in nuclear physics and physics of other small systems. With the most updated information written in an accessible way, the volume will serve as an irreplaceable source of references covering many years of development and insight into several new problems at the frontiers of science. It will be useful not only for physicists working in nuclear and condensed matter physics, astrophysicists, chemists and historians of science, but will also help students understand the current status and perspectives for the future."--Publisher

Heavy ion reactions : the elementary processes, part I and II by R. A Broglia( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combining elastic and inelastic processes with transfer reactions, this two-part volume explores how these events affect heavy ion collisions. Special attention is given to processes involving the transfer of two nucleons, which are specific for probing pairing correlations in nuclei. This novel treatment provides, together with the description of surface vibration and rotations, a unified picture of heavy ion reactions in terms of the elementary modes of nuclear excitation. Heavy Ion Reactions is essential reading for beginning graduate students as well as experienced researchers
Nuclear superfluidity : pairing in finite systems by D. M Brink( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nuclear Superfluidity is the first modern text devoted exclusively to pair correlations in nuclei. - It begins by exploring pair correlations in a variety of systems, including superconductivity in metals at low temperatures and superfluidity in liquid [superscript 3]He and in neutron stars. - The book goes on to introduce basic theoretical methods, symmetry breaking and symmetry restoration in finite many-body systems. - "This book will be essential reading for researchers and students in both experimental and theoretical nuclear physics, and related research fields such as metal clusters, fullerenes and quantum dots."--Jacket
