Concepts in solids ; lectures on the theory of solids by P. W Anderson( Book )

81 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in English and French and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These lecture notes constitute a course on a number of central concepts of solid state physics - classification of solids, band theory, the developments in one-electron band theory in the presence of perturbation, effective Hamiltonian theory, elementary excitations and the various types of collective elementary excitation (excitons, spin waves and phonons), the Fermi liquid, ferromagnetic spin waves, antiferromagnetic spin waves and the theory of broken symmetry. The book can be used in conjunction with a survey course in solid state physics, or as the basis of a first graduate-level course. It can be read by anyone who has had basic grounding in quantum mechanics
Basic notions of condensed matter physics by P. W Anderson( Book )

49 editions published between 1983 and 2018 in English and Japanese and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This book] is an accessible introduction to some of the most signicant concepts in the physics of condensed matter. The general principles of many-body physics and perturbation theory are emphasized, providing supportive mathematical structure. This text is an expansion and restatement of the second half of Nobel laureate Philip Anderson's classic Concepts in Solids"--Page [4] of cover
A man called Horse( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An English aristocrat is taken prisoner by a tribe of American Sioux Indians and given to the chief's aging mother as a servant. Gradually, he embraces the tribe's way of life and falls in love with the chief's sister. The constant threat of ambush by a rival tribe and rigors of survival now fill the days of this man called "Horse." He is eventually given a chance to prove his worthiness and be accepted into the tribe. But in order to be accepted with honor as an equal within the tribe, he must endure the Sun Vow
The economy as an evolving complex system : the proceedings of the Evolutionary Paths of the Global Economy Workshop, held September, 1987 in Santa Fe, New Mexico by Evolutionary Paths of the Global Economy Workshop( Book )

38 editions published between 1988 and 2018 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses a conceptual framework incorporating a more appropiate mathematics, with a greatly strengthened capacity to deal simultaneously with many variables, nonlinearity, and dynamics. Presents techniques for nonlinear dynamics and the study of adaptive paths with th aims of encouraging the use of such techniques to understand the complex and chaotic developments in the worldwide economy
A career in theoretical physics by P. W Anderson( Book )

27 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theory of ferroelectric behaviour of barium titanate. Use of stochastic methods in line broadening problems. Theory of dirty superconductors
The theory of superconductivity in the high-Tc cuprates by P. W Anderson( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is P.W. Anderson's long-awaited full presentation of his theory of high-T[subscript c] superconductivity in the cuprates. The fundamental insight contained in the book is that the conditions for validity of the renormalized quasiparticle theory of metals ("Fermi Liquid Theory") are much more restrictive than had been thought, and are not satisfied in the CuO[subscript 2] planes of high-T[subscript c] materials (among, probably, many other examples). This requires a new state of matter to be invented, new transport theories, and new mechanisms for superconductivity
More and different : notes from a thoughtful curmudgeon by P. W Anderson( Book )

17 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philip Anderson was educated at University High School in Urbana, Illinois, at Harvard (BS 1943, PhD 1949), and further educated at Bell Laboratories, where his career (1949-1984) coincided with the greatest period of that remarkable institution. Starting in 1967, he shared his time with Cambridge University (until 1975) and then with Princeton, where he continued full time as Joseph Henry Professor until 1997. As an emeritus he remains active in research, and at press time he was involved in several scientific controversies about high profile subjects, in which his point of view, though unpopular at the moment, is likely to prevail eventually. His colleagues have made him one of the two physicists most often cited in the scientific literature, for several decades. His work is characterized by mathematical simplicity combined with conceptual depth, and by profound respect for experimental findings. He has explored areas outside his main discipline, the quantum theory of condensed matter (for which he won the 1977 Nobel Prize), on several occasions: his paper on what is now called the "Anderson-Higgs mechanism" was a main source for Peter Higgs' elucidation of the boson; a crucial insight led to work on the dynamics of neutron stars (pulsars); and his concept of the spin glass led far afield, to developments in practical computer algorithms and neural nets, and eventually to his involvement in the early years of the Santa Fe Institute and his co-leadership with Kenneth Arrow of two influential workshops on economics at that institution. His writing career started with a much-quoted article in Science titled "More is Different" in 1971; he was an occasional columnist for Physics Today in the 1980s and 1990s. He was more recently a reviewer of science and science-related books for the Times (London) Higher Education Supplement as well as an occasional contributor to Science, Nature, and other journals
Einstein : a hundred years of relativity by Andrew Robinson( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and French and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the book explains clearly, Einstein's dramatic papers of 1905 overthrew the Newtonian worldview and revolutionized our understanding of space, time, energy, matter, and light. His work had impact far beyond the field of physics, playing a leading role in the century's technological advances and influencing modernism in every field. Except for his last interview that was previously published, all the essays here are original works written especially for this book. The photographs draw on an exceptional archive Einstein bequeathed to Hebrew University in Jerusalem. --
50 years of Anderson localization( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique volume celebrates the five decades of the impact of Anderson localization on modern physics. In addition to the historical perspective on its origin, it provides a comprehensive description of the experimental and theoretical aspects of Anderson localization
Mobility characteristics of U.S. medical school faculty by P. W Anderson( Book )

6 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even though each medical school has its own unique qualities that distinguish it from another, differences can be examined in terms of faculty and school characteristics. Two general questions are pursued in the present report: (1) What are the mobility patterns of medical school faculty members as revealed through an analysis of faculty characteristics? (2) What are the mobility patterns of medical school faculty members as revealed through an analysis of institutional characteristics? To answer these questions medical school faculty are divided into four groups--new hires; transfers; stayers, and leavers--on the basis of mobility status. Medical school faculty in the four mobility status groups are then compared in terms of the following characteristics: age, sex, country of training, academic rank, nature of employment. Also included are two characteristics of the medical schools--ownership and age. (Author/KE)
A preliminary analysis of differential characteristics between high and low mobile medical school faculty by P. W Anderson( Book )

Institutional variables related to high faculty attrition by P. W Anderson( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The retention of qualified faculty is an important factor in maintaining the identity and professional climate of a medical school. In studying faculty mobility from the institutional point of view, data on faculty attrition is closely examined. A faculty coefficient for each medical school was determined by the ratio of the number of salaried faculty in the school that year. Twenty-seven variables were selected to predict faculty attrition. These variables fall into four broad categories: size of institution, faculty variables, financial variables, and miscellaneous variables. The most notable finding reflects the low correlation of the 27 institutional predictor variables with the criterion. It may be that other institutional variables were not included in the present study that related to faculty attrition, or that few variables capture the variance in common among medical schools regarding faculty attrition. The age of the institution and percent of foreign medical graduates on staff were effective independently in predicting high faculty attrition. (Author/KE)
PWA90 : a lifetime of emergence by Premi Chandra( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a remarkable career spanning more than six decades, Philip W. Anderson has made many fundamental contributions to physics. As codified in his oft-quoted phrase "More is Different", Anderson has been the most forceful and persuasive proponent of the radical, but now ubiquitous, viewpoint of emergent phenomena: truly fundamental concepts that can and do emerge from studies of Nature at each layer of complexity or energy scale. Anderson's ideas have also extended deeply into other areas of physics, including the Anderson-Higgs mechanism and the dynamics of pulsars. PWA90: A Lifetime of Emergence is a volume of original scientific essays and personal reminiscences of Philip W Anderson by experts in the field, that were presented as part of "PWA90: Emergent Frontiers of Condensed Matter" meeting held at Princeton in December 2013 to highlight Anderson's contributions to physics"--
