Fundamental forces of nature the story of gauge fields by Kerson Huang ( )
22 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 1,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gauge fields are the messengers carrying signals between elementary particles, enabling them to interact with each other. Originating at the level of quarks, these basic interactions percolate upwards, through nuclear and atomic physics, through chemical and solid state physics, to make our everyday world go round. This book tells the story of gauge fields, from Maxwell's 1860 theory of electromagnetism to the 1954 theory of Yang and Mills that underlies the Standard Model of elementary particle theory. In the course of the narration, the author introduces people and events in experimental and
Lectures on statistical physics and protein folding by Kerson Huang ( )
17 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book introduces an approach to protein folding from the point ofview of kinetic theory. There is an abundance of data on proteinfolding, but few proposals are available on the mechanism driving theprocess. Here, presented for the first time, are suggestions onpossible research directions, as developed by the author incollaboration with C C Lin
Quantum field theory : from operators to path integrals by Kerson Huang ( Book )
26 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A new, updated and enhanced edition of the classic work, which was welcomed for its general approach and self-sustaining organization of the chapters. Written by a highly respected textbook writer and researcher, this book has a more general scope and adopts a more practical approach than other books. It includes applications of condensed matter physics, first developing traditional concepts, including Feynman graphs, before moving on to such key topics as functional integrals, statistical mechanics and Wilson's renormalization group. The author takes care to explain the connection between the latter and conventional perturbative renormalization. Due to the rapid advance and increase in importance of low dimensional systems, this second edition fills a gap in the market with its added discussions of low dimensional systems, including one-dimensional conductors."--Publisher's website
Introduction to statistical physics by Kerson Huang ( Book )
23 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Written by a world-renowned theoretical physicist, Introduction to Statistical Physics, Second Edition clarifies the properties of matter collectively in terms of the physical laws governing atomic motion. This second edition expands upon the original to include many additional exercises and more pedagogically oriented discussions that fully explain the concepts and applications. The book first covers the classical ensembles of statistical mechanics and stochastic processes, including Brownian motion, probability theory, and the Fokker-Planck and Langevin equations. To illustrate the use of statistical methods beyond the theory of matter, the author discusses entropy in information theory, Brownian motion in the stock market, and the Monte Carlo method in computer simulations. The next several chapters emphasize the difference between quantum mechanics and classical mechanics-the quantum phase. Applications covered include Fermi statistics and semiconductors and Bose statistics and Bose-Einstein condensation. The book concludes with advanced topics, focusing on the Ginsburg-Landau theory of the order parameter and the special kind of quantum order found in superfluidity and superconductivity. Assuming some background knowledge of classical and quantum physics, this textbook thoroughly familiarizes advanced undergraduate students with the different aspects of statistical physics. This updated edition continues to provide the tools needed to understand and work with random processes. (Book Cover)

PHYSICS AND OUR WORLD REISSUE OF THE PROCEEDINGS OF A SYMPOSIUM IN HONOR OF VICTOR F WEISSKOPF by Kerson Huang ( )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the proceedings of a symposium in honor of Victor Weisskopf at MIT, this volume contains papers by leaders of physics at the time, including M Delbrück, M Gell-Mann, H Bethe, T D Lee, B R Mottelson, W K H Panofsky, E Purcell, J Schwinger, S M Ulam, and others. Some papers address problems in the philosophy of physics, and physics and society, that are timeless in nature. But the symposium had a historical significance, in that it took place at a historic juncture of particle physics - the emergence of the Standard Model owing to experiments that point to the existence of quarks. Some of the

A digital optical cellular image processor : theory, architecture, and implementation by Kung-Shiuh Huang ( )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The research detailed in this book has been motivated by the search for a simple parallel digital optical architecture for image processing. The development of a simple unified consistent theory of parallel binary image processing is described and its implementation on digital optical processors is considered. Both theoretical and experimental work are included, and both algorithmic and architectural designs are covered. Also presented are the experimental results of the implementation of a prototype Digital Optical Cellular Image Processor (DOCIP) system used to demonstrate the concept of the
