Differential geometry and relativity : a volume in honour of André Lichnerowicz on his 60th birthday by M Cahen( Book )

16 editions published between 1976 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the occasion of the sixtieth birthday of Andre Lichnerowicz a number of his friends, many of whom have been his students or coworkers, decided to celebrate this event by preparing a jubilee volume of contributed articles in the two main fields of research marked by Lichnerowicz's work, namely differential geometry and mathematical physics. Limitations of space and time did not enable us to include papers from all Lichnerowicz's friends nor from all his former students. It was equally impossible to reflect in a single book the great variety of subjects tackled by Lichnerowicz. In spite of these limitations, we hope that this book reflects some of the present trends of fields in which he worked, and some of the subjects to which he contributed in his long - and not yet finished - career. This career was very much marked by the influence of his masters, Elie Cartan who introduced him to research in mathematics, mainly in geometry and its relations with mathematical physics, and Georges Darmois who developed his interest for mechanics and physics, especially the theory of relativity and electromagnetism. This par ticular combination, and his personal talent, made of him a natural scientific heir and continuator of the French mathematical physics school in the tradition of Henri Poincare. Some of his works would even be best qualified by a new field name, that of physical ma thematics: branches of pure mathematics entirely motivated by physics
Quantum mechanics, determinism, causality, and particles : an international collection of contributions in honor of Louis de Broglie on the occasion of the jubilee of his celebrated thesis by M Flato( Book )

21 editions published between 1970 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two important events in the history of physical sciences occurred re cently: the fiftieth anniversary of Quantum Mechanics and the Jubilee of Louis de Broglie's celebrated Thesis. These events occurred in the same period of time when the world honored de Broglie on the occa sion of his eightieth birthday. Some of de Broglie's friends, former students, and some people who used to know him and appreciate his personality decided to prepare an international volume for this cele brated occasion. Such a task was not very easy. It is always simpler to contribute in honor of famous people whose works and impact were great on a tech nical and pragmatic level than to contribute in honor of a person whose achievements were not only dominant in physical sciences themselves, but also had many important implications for the development of the whole branch of philosophy of sciences. Louis de Broglie, the man to whom we owe among other things the most fundamental notion of duality between waves and particles, be longs in a way to the Einsteinian school of thought. He never accepted literally the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. To him it was clear that this interpretation makes quantum mechanics incomplete and highly non-deterministic. He always believed that since the duality between waves and particles was an experimental fact, there should be some manifestation of the Schrodinger wave itself in the realistic world. De Broglie had to struggle much for this idea, which he never gave up

Essays on supersymmetry by Christian Fronsdal( Book )

To our own also needs to be understood. Such unification may also require that the supersymmetry group possess irreducible representations with infinite reductiori on the Poincare subgroup, to accommodate an infinite set of particles. Such possibilities were 5 envisaged long ago and have recently reappeared in Kaluza-Klein . 6 d' . th 7 S . l' th supergraVlty an m superstnng eory. upersymmetry Imp Ies at forces that are mediated by bose exchange must be complemented by forces that are due to the exchange of fermions. The masslessness of neutrinos is suggestive-we continue to favor the idea that neutrinos are fundamental to weak interactions, that they will finally play a more central role than the bit part assigned to them in Weinberg-Salam theory. There seems to be little room for doubting that supersymmetry is badly broken-so where should one be looking for the first tangible manifestations of it? It is remarkable that the successes that can be legitimately claimed for supersymmetry are all in the domain of massless particles and fields. Supergravity is not renormalizable, but it is an improvement (in this respect) over ordinary quantum gravity. Finite super Yang-Mills theories are not yet established, but there is now a strong concensus that they soon will be. In both cases massless fields are involved in an essential way
Quantum theories and geometry by M Cahen( Book )

11 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the text of most of the lectures which were de livered at the Meeting Quantum Theories and Geometry which was held at the Fondation Les Treilles from March 23 to March 27, 1987. The general aim of this meeting was to bring together mathemati cians and physicists who have worked in this growing field of contact between the two disciplines, namely this region where geometry and physics interact creatively in both directions. It 1S the strong belief of the organizers that these written con tributions will be a useful document for research people workin~ 1n geometry or physics. Three lectures were devoted to the deformation approach to quantum mechanics which involves a modification of both the associative and the Lie structure of the algebra of functions on classical phase space. A. Lichnerowicz shows how one can view classical and quantum statistical mechanics in terms of a deformation with a parameter inversely propor tional to temperature. S. Gutt reviews the physical background of star products and indicates their applications in Lie groups representa tion theory and in harmonic analysis. D. Arnal gives a rigorous theory Vll viii PREFACI of the star exponential in the case of the Heisenberg group and shows how this can be extended to arbitrary nilpotent groups

Physics on manifolds : proceedings of the international colloquium in honour of Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat, Paris, June 3-5, 1992 by M Flato( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of the geometry of manifolds in space-time physics, and that of functional analysis in quantum mechanics and quantum field theory have become increasingly important. This is particularly true in the study of the global behaviour of solutions of differential systems on manifolds, and their implications to general relativity.<br/> Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat has contributed much to this exciting area of mathematical physics, and her work on the existence of solutions to Einstein's equations on differential manifolds of a general type has subsequently stimulated and inspired much important research. She has also played a pioneering role in the study of global problems, especially in gauge field theory and supergravity, and in the development of a theory of asymptotic gravitational and electromagnetic waves.<br/> The various contributions appearing in this volume, authored by eminent scientists, illustrate the latest developments in the many areas of contemporary physics which have greatly benefited from Choquet-Bruhat's work and influence.<br/> For mathematical physicists with an interest in relativity, quantum mechanics and field theory. <br/>
Conférence Moshé Flato 1999 : quantization, deformations, and symmetries by Conférence Moshé Flato( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and French and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conférence Moshé Flato 1999 : quantization, deformations, and symmetries by Giuseppe Dito( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These two volumes constitute the Proceedings of the `Conférence Moshé Flato, 1999'. Their spectrum is wide but the various areas covered are, in fact, strongly interwoven by a common denominator, the unique personality and creativity of the scientist in whose honor the Conference was held, and the far-reaching vision that underlies his scientific activity. With these two volumes, the reader will be able to take stock of the present state of the art in a number of subjects at the frontier of current research in mathematics, mathematical physics, and physics. Volume I is prefaced by reminiscences of and tributes to Flato's life and work. It also includes a section on the applications of sciences to insurance and finance, an area which was of interest to Flato before it became fashionable. The bulk of both volumes is on physical mathematics, where the reader will find these ingredients in various combinations, fundamental mathematical developments based on them, and challenging interpretations of physical phenomena. Audience: These volumes will be of interest to researchers and graduate students in a variety of domains, ranging from abstract mathematics to theoretical physics and other applications. Some parts will be accessible to proficient undergraduate students, and even to persons with a minimum of scientific knowledge but enough curiosity

Quantum scattering theory for several particle systems by S. P Merkurʹev( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is devoted to the quantum mechanical problem of the scattering of N -particles. This has long been a traditional and difficult problem of mathematical physics and its quantum analogue has many interesting applications in atomic and nuclear physics. It is also an interesting problem from a mathematical point of view. The book has seven chapters. Chapter 1 deals with the basic dynamical concepts, and wave and scattering operators are defined and their general properties are described. Chapter 2 considers the stationary formalism of scattering theory. The method of integral equations is the subject of Chapter 3. Chapters 4 and 5 are devoted to the study of wave equations in configuration space. Chapter 6 covers some problems in the mathematical foundation of scattering theory, and the final chapter discusses a number of applications of stationary scattering theory. The book concludes with comments on the existing literature and a bibliography. For researchers in mathematics and mathematical physics interested in quantum mechanical scattering theory
