Methods of Modern Mathematical Physics
Szegő's theorem and its descendants spectral theory for L2 perturbations of orthogonal polynomials by Barry Simon ( )
15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents a comprehensive overview of the sum rule approach to spectral analysis of orthogonal polynomials, which derives from Gábor Szego's classic 1915 theorem and its 1920 extension. Barry Simon emphasizes necessary and sufficient conditions, and provides mathematical background that until now has been available only in journals. Topics include background from the theory of meromorphic functions on hyperelliptic surfaces and the study of covering maps of the Riemann sphere with a finite number of slits removed. This allows for the first book-length treatment of orthogonal polynomia
Functional integration and quantum physics by Barry Simon ( Book )
23 editions published between 1979 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The main theme of this classic book is the path integral technique and its applications to constructive methods of quantum physics. The central topic is probabilistic foundations of Feynman-Kac formula. Starting with main examples of Gaussian processes, the author presents four different proofs of the Feynman-Kac formula
Trace ideals and their applications by Barry Simon ( Book )
19 editions published between 1979 and 2005 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These expository lectures contain an advanced technical account of a branch of mathematical analysis. In his own lucid and readable style the author begins with a comprehensive review of the methods of bounded operators in a Hilbert space. He then goes on to discuss a wide variety of applications including Fredholm theory and more specifically his own specialty of mathematical quantum theory. included also are an extensive and up-to-date list of references enabling the reader to delve more deeply into this topical subject
Quantum mechanics for Hamiltonians defined as quadratic forms by Barry Simon ( Book )
11 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Convexity : an analytic viewpoint by Barry Simon ( Book )
17 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Convexity of sets and functions are extremely simple notions to define, so it may be somewhat surprising the depth and breadth of ideas that these notions give rise to. It turns out that convexity is central to a vast number of applied areas, including Statistical Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Mathematical Economics, and Statistics,and that many inequalities, including Hl̲der's and Minkowski's inequalities, are related to convexity. An introductory chapter (1) includes a study of regularity properties of convex functions, some inequalities (Hl̲der, Minkowski, and Jensen), the Hahn-Banach theorem as a statement about extending tangents to convex functions, and the introduction of two constructions that will play major roles later in this book: the Minkowski gauge of a convex set and the Legendre transform of a function"--

Functional analysis by Michael Reed ( Book )
29 editions published between 1972 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the first of a multivolume series devoted to an exposition of functional analysis methods in modern mathematical physics. It describes the fundamental principles of functional analysis and is essentially self-contained, although there are occasional references to later volumes. We have included a few applications when we thought that they would provide motivation for the reader. Later volumes describe various advanced topics in functional analysis and give numerous applications in classical physics, modern physics, and partial differential equations
Methods of modern mathematical physics by Michael Reed ( Book )
35 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Quasiclassical methods by Jeffrey Rauch ( Book )
6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The chapters in this volume explore the various aspects of quasiclassical methods such as approximate theories for large Coulomb systems, Schroedinger operator with magnetic wells, ground state energy of heavy molecules in strong magnetic field, and methods with emphasis on coherent states. Included are also mathematical theories dealing with h-pseudodifferential operators, asymptotic distribution of eigenvalues in gaps, a proof of the strong Scott conjecture, Lieb- Thirring inequalities for the Pauli operator, and local trace formulae
Multiparticle quantum scattering with applications to nuclear, atomic, and molecular physics by Donald G Truhlar ( Book )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The topics in this volume include the ideas of mathematicians, physicists and chemists in the area of multiparticle scattering theory. Scattering theory (or collision theory as it is often called) is a fundamental area of theory and computation in both physics and chemistry. The correct formulation of scattering theory for two-body collisions is now well worked out, but systems with three or more particles still present fundamental unmet challenges, both in the formulations of the problem and in the interpretation of computational results. A key issue in the mathematical foundations is asymptotic completeness, which says that any state of a quantum system is a superposition of bound and scattering states. Key issues on the physical side are concerned with boundary conditions, electromagnetic fields, effective potentials and resonances
Spectral analysis, differential equations, and mathematical physics : a festschrift in honor of Fritz Gesztesy's 60th birthday ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
