Quantum theory : concepts and methods by
Asher Peres(
Book
)
44 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book will be useful to anyone who wants to understand the use of quantum theory for the description of physical processes. It is a graduate level text, ideal for independent study, and includes numerous figures, exercises, bibliographical references, and even some computer programs. The first chapters introduce formal tools: the mathematics are precise, but not excessively abstract. The physical interpretation too is rigorous. It makes no use of the uncertainty principle of other illdefined notions. The central part of the book is devoted to Bell's theorem and to the KochenSpecker theorem. It is here that quantum phenomena depart most radically from classical physics. There has recently been considerable progress on these issues, and the latest developments have been included. The final chapters discuss further topics of current research: spacetime symmetries, quantum thermodynamics and information theory, semiclassical methods, irreversibility, quantum chaos, and especially the measuring process. In particular, it is shown how modern techniques allow the extraction of more information from a physical system than traditional measurement methods. For physicists, mathematicians and philosophers of science with an interest in the applications and foundations of quantum theory. The volume is suitable as a supplementary graduate textbook

Frequency of B cells in normal mice which recognize self proteins by M. C Carlan(
)
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The mechanism whereby the immune system avoids selfaggression is one of the central issues of Immunology. The discovery of natural autoantibodies, mainly of IgM isotype, and of idiotypic interactions between antibodies indicates that elements of the immune system interact with self constituents and with themselves. Results of studies with soluble antibodies have indicated that the pool of circulating IgM represents the end result of a highly selective process of B cell activation and differentiation by self proteins resulting in the formation of a network. The objective of the present work was to determine the frequency of selfreacting B cells in normal mice. We were able to detect B cells that recognize self proteins present in extracts of different organs in normal adult, 23month old, BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice with an ELISA spot assay. About 1 per cent of total IgMsecreting cells among small, LPSstimulated spleen cells reacted with organ extracts, whereas among large spleen cells the frequency was 5 to 10 fold lower. Immunization induced an increase in the frequency of IgMsecreting cells. The present results provide cellular evidence for the results of studies done at the serological level. The physiological role of these selfrecognizing cells, as well as their participation in autoimmune processes, remain to be established. (AU)

Commutation relations for electromagnetic potentials(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Given the known (gaugeindependent) value of F sub ab (x), F sub cd (y), we derive the most general expression for the commutator A sub a (X), A sub b (y). The latter contains four arbitrary functions N sub a (x, y), which, if suitably chosen, may yield the Coulomb gauge, the Feynman gauge, the Landau gauge, etc. It is however impossible to go over from one value of N sub a (x, y) to another by means of an operator gauge transformation, unless the difference between both values of N sub a satisfies some differential relations

In this article, it is shown that Schwinger's formula for (T(00) (x), T(00) (y)) cannot be generalized, in a covariant fashion, to the other components of the energymomentum tensor. (Author)

ANOMALOUS SPINOR EQUATIONS(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Twocomponent anomalous spinor equations, describing particles of nonvanishing mass, are derived from a generally covariant Lagrangian principle. Some properties of the solutions are discussed, and some difficulties are pointed out. (Author)

MACROSCOPIC BODIES IN QUANTUM THEORY(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
It is shown that if the wavefunction of a massive body is u= c sub n u sub n where the sub n are macroscopically distinguishable states, then the observation of interferences between the various u sub n requires inconceivable laboratory conditions (e.g., the experiment may last longer than the lifetime of the universe). It is therefore proposed to interpret c sub n u sub n as a mixture of states, and not as a superposition. This new interpretation of wavefunctions is consistent with experience and is free from the paradoxical features of the 'orthodox' measurement theory. (Author)
