Quantum field theory : from operators to path integrals by Kerson Huang( Book )

34 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 521 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 )

32 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and Polish and held by 513 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)

Fundamental forces of nature : the story of gauge fields by Kerson Huang( Book )

29 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 theoretical physics that contribute to ideas that have shaped our conception of the physical world."--BOOK JACKET

Lectures on statistical physics and protein folding by Kerson Huang( Book )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 248 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
I Ching, the oracle by Kerson Huang( Book )

13 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains a dramatic and revealing translation of this ancient classic into English. The Chinese original is set side-by-side with the translation. Two things set this work apart from other translated versions. First, archeological findings are used to uncover the meaning of passages obscured for thousands of years. Second, it preserves the flavor of the original in a poetic rendition. An introductory part of this book provides the historical and philosophical background to the I Ching. The story is told of the ancient Chinese civilization, pointing out events and figures mentioned in the I Ching. The undisguised face of the I Ching will appeal to the modern reader, who will read it in his or her own individual way, as poetry, as discoverer of self, or as soothsayer. It is in the grand tradition of the I Ching for different people to see different things. To Confucius, who was born in 550 B.C., it was a source of ethics. To Leibnitz, the eighteenth-century inventor of calculus, it was the essence of binary mathematics. To Jung Freud's rival in psychology, it was an explorer of the unconscious. To some Wall Streeters, it predicts the stock market. This second edition includes a new chapter on a historical perspective, and other additions, changes and minor reformatting

A superfluid universe by Kerson Huang( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This interesting book provides the physical and mathematical background for a theory describing the universe as a quantum superfluid, and how dark energy and dark matter arise. Presenting a novel theory spanning many different fields in physics, the key concepts in each field are introduced. The reader is only expected to know the rudiments of condensed matter physics, quantum field theory and general relativity to explore this fascinating new model of dark matter and dark energy as facets of a cosmic superfluid. Readership: Students, researchers, and all readers interested in cosmology"--

Physics and our world : reissue of the proceedings of a symposium in honor of Victor F Weisskopf by Kerson Huang( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 27 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
