Principles of cosmology and gravitation by Michael V Berry( Book )

63 editions published between 1976 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 1,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dynamical chaos : proceedings of a Royal Society Discussion Meeting held on 4 and 5 February 1987 by Royal Society (Great Britain)( Book )

38 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The leading scientists who gave these papers under the sponsorship of the Royal Society in early 1987 provide reviews of facets of the subject of chaos ranging from the practical aspects of mirror machines for fusion power to the pure mathematics of geodesics on surfaces of negative curvature. The papers deal with systems in which chaotic conditions arise from initial value problems with unique solutions, as opposed to those where chaos is produced by the introduction of noise from an external source.

Statistics of energy levels without time-reversal symmetry: Aharonov-Bohm chaotic billiards by Michael V Berry( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A planar domain D contains a single line of of magnetic flux $\phi$. Switching on $\phi$ breaks time-reversal symmetry (T) for quantal particles with charge q moving in D, whilst preserving the geometry of classical (billiard) trajectories bouncing off the boundary $\partial$D. If $\partial$D is such that these classical trajectories are chaotic, we predict that T breaking will cause the local statistics of quantal energy levels to change their universality class, from that of the Gaussian orthogonal ensemble (GOE) of random-matrix theory to that of the Gaussian unitary ensemble (GUE). In the semiclassical limit this transition is abrupt; for statistics involving the first N levels, GUE behavior requires that the quantum flux $\alpha$$\equiv$q$\phi$/h>>0.13N^{-1/4}. The special flux $\alpha$=1/2 corresponds to 'false T breaking' and for this case we predict GOE statistics. These predictions are confirmed by numerical computation of spectral statistics for a classically chaotic billiard without symmetry, for which $\partial$D is a cubic conformal image of the unit disc
Quantum states without time-reversal symmetry: wavefront dislocations in a non-integrable Aharonov-Bohm billiard by Michael V Berry( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We display complex wavefunctions $\psi_j$ for the jth eigenstate of a particle moving freely in a domain D (whose reflecting boundary gives classically chaotic motion) threaded by a single line of magnetic flux whose strength (in quantum units) is $\alpha$. The wavefronts (phase contours of $\psi_j$) show the expected dislocation singularities both away from the flux line (where their strength is $\pm$1) and at the flux line (where the strength is the integer closest to $\alpha$). $\psi_5$ shows two dislocations away from the flux line for all $\alpha$, and the birth of a dislocation at the flux line as $\alpha$ passes the value $\frac{1}{2}$. $\psi_50$ shows 43 dislocations, in reasonable agreement with a semiclassical theory based on regarding $\psi_N$ as a complex Gaussian random function, which predicts N dislocations in the asymptotic limit N $\to$ $\infty$

Semiclassical level spacing when regular and chaotic orbits coexist by Michael V Berry( )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We calculate semiclassical limiting level spacing distributions P(S) for systems whose classical energy surface is divided into a number of separate regions in which motion is regular or chaotic. In the calculation it is assumed that the spectrum is the superposition of statistically independent sequences of levels from each of the classical phase-space regions, sequences from regular regions having Poisson distributions and those from irregular regions having Wigner distributions. The formulae for P(S) depend on the sum of the Liouville measures of all the classical regular regions, and on the separate Liouville measures of the significant chaotic regions

Quantum indistinguishability by Michael V Berry( Visual )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Michael Berry, Royal Society Research Professor, University of Bristol, United Kingdom. The quantum physics of identical particles is embodied in the connection between spin and statistics (the Pauli principle). For many decades it has been thought that this can be understood only with ideas from relativity and quantum field theory. But in fact it can be derived from ordinary few-body nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, if this is reformulated to take proper account of the geometry of the indistinguishability of particles. This can be made plausible by conjuring tricks with a belt. The 'Pauli sign' ( -1)²s emerges as a geometric phase factor
