Fundamentals in nuclear physics : from nuclear structure to cosmology by J. L Basdevant( Book )

23 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and German and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This course explores nuclear physics and its applications ranging from the structure of nuclei and their reactions, to astrophysics and cosmology. The physics is introduced with arguments based on simple ideas such as the empirical structure of nuclear forces and its interplay with the Pauli principle and Coulomb repulsion. The book then develops elementary nuclear models and illustrates nuclear systematics with experimental data. Reactions and decays are discussed both phenomenologically and from the point of view of fundamental electro-weak interaction theory. The discussions of fission and fusion emphasize nuclear energy production. This leads directly into nuclear astrophysics and nucleosynthesis. The book ends with a presentation of the latest ideas about cosmology. As a primer this course will lay the foundations for more specialized subjects within the vast domain of nuclear physics as a whole." "This book emerged from a series of tropical courses the authors delivered at the Ecole Polytechnique and will be useful for advanced undergraduates and for scientists in a variety of fields."--Jacket

Lectures on quantum mechanics by J. L Basdevant( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beautifully illustrated and engagingly written, Lectures on Quantum Mechanics presents theoretical physics with a breathtaking array of examples and anecdotes. Basdevant's style is clear and stimulating, in the manner of a brisk classroom lecture that students can follow with ease and enjoyment. Here is a sample of the book's style, from the opening of Chapter 1: "If one were to ask a passer-by to quote a great formula of physics, chances are that the answer would be 'E = mc2'. Nevertheless, the formula 'E=hV' which was written in the same year 1905 by the same Albert Einstein, and which started quantum theory, concerns their daily life considerably more. In fact, of the three watershed years for physics toward the beginning of the 20th century - 1905: the Special Relativity of Einstein, Lorentz and Poincaré; 1915: the General Relativity of Einstein, with its extraordinary reflections on gravitation, space and time; and 1925: the full development of Quantum Mechanics - it is surely the last which has the most profound implications for the development of science and technology. There is no way around it: all physics is quantum, from elementary particles, to stellar physics and the Big Bang, not to mention semiconductors and solar cells." A graduate of the Ecole Normale Superieure, Jean-Louis Basdevant is Professor and former Chair of the Department of Physics at the Ecole Polytechnique, and Director of Research for the CNRS. Specializing in the theoretical physics of elementary particles, quantum field theory and astrophysics, Prof. Basdevant works in the Leprince-Ringuet Laboratory at the Ecole Polytechnique
Variational principles in physics by J. L Basdevant( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The heart of this book is devoted to the analytical mechanics of Lagrange and Hamilton, the basic tools of any physicist. Professor Basdevant also offers simple but rich first impressions of Einstein's General Relativity, Feynman's Quantum Mechanics, and more revealing and amazing interconnections between various fields of physics."--Jacket
Exercices pour le Cours de physique de Feynman : 900 exercices corrigés by Richard P Feynman( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combined into one volume for the first time, the updated and clarified Exercises for the Feynman Lectures on Physics provides comprehensive, hands-on practice in all the most important areas of physics{u2014}from Newtonian mechanics through the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. A perfect complement to The Feynman Lectures on Physics, these exercises have all been assigned in Caltech{u2019}s mandatory two-year introductory physics course, either when Richard Feynman was teaching it, or during the nearly two decades that followed when The Feynman Lectures on Physics was used as the textbook. With this modern, easy-to-use volume, students of physics will have a chance to apply what they have learned in the Lectures and to enhance and reinforce the concepts taught by the inimitable Richard Feynman

Lectures on quantum mechanics : with problems, exercises and their solutions by J. L Basdevant( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new edition of this remarkable text offers the reader a conceptually strong introduction to quantum mechanics, but goes beyond this to present a fascinating tour of modern theoretical physics. Beautifully illustrated and engagingly written, it starts with a brief overview of diverse topics across physics including nanotechnology, statistical physics, materials science, astrophysics, and cosmology. The core of the book covers both established and emerging aspects of quantum mechanics. A concise introduction to traditional quantum mechanics covers the Schrödinger equation, Hilbert space, the algebra of observables, hydrogen atom, spin and Pauli principle. Modern features of the field are presented by exploring entangled states, Bell's inequality, quantum cryptography, quantum teleportation and quantum mechanics in the universe. This new edition has been enchanced through the addition of numerous problems with detailed solutions, an introduction to the mathematical tools needed and expanded discussion of the state-of-the-art in applications of quantum mechanics. Reviews of the 1st Edition: "This stimulating book on quantum mechanics documents many of the lively introduetory lectures given by Jean-Louis Basdevant during the past 25 years ... written in a very engaging manner with regular mention of interesting applications and events and personages in the history of quantum mechanics & n insightful discussion is given of the methodology involved in the construction of quantum theory & (Howard E. Brandt, Mathematical Reviews) "The strength of the book lies in Bedevant's obvious talent as a lecturer. He is engaging and interesting and uses a wide variety of examples and sources. & These are interesting lectures and would be useful to anyone interested in an advanced introduction, or a review, of the topic." (E. Kincanon, CHOICE) "This textbook presents theoretical physics with a breathtaking array of examples and anecdotes. The author's style is clear and stimulating, in the manner of a brisk classroom lecture that students can follow with ease and enjoyment. The book is written in physical language, without the excessive mathematics." (Vladimir Dzhunushaliev, Zentralblatt MATH)
Particle physics : Cargèse 1985 by Maurice Lévy( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1989 Cargese Summer Institute on Particle Physics was organized by the Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris (M. Levy and J.-L. Basdevant), CERN (M. Jacob), the Universite Catholique de Louvain (D. Speiser and J. Weyers) and the Katholieke Universiteit te Leuven (R. Gastmans), which, since 1975, have joined their efforts and worked in common. It was the twenty-sixth Summer Institute held at Cargese and the tenth organized by the two Institutes of Theoretical Physics at Leuven and Louvain-la-Neuve. The 1989 school centered on the following topics - new experimental results - strings, superstrings and conformal field theory - lattice approximations. Of the many new experimental results, we would like to mention especially those from SLAC presented by Professor G. Feldman. On the other hand, we had the tantalizing knowledge that LEP would begin to operate only right after the end of the school! For this we received ample replacement: Professor J. Steinberger summed up all major CP violation experiments done to date and commented upon them. The reader will find also various other most interesting contributions, for instance on high energy ion beams. Once more theoreticians and experimentalists (this time more than usual) came together to discuss high energy particle physics
