Quantum decoherence Poincaré Seminar 2005 by Bertrand Duplantier( )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Poincaré Seminar is held twice a year at the Institute Henri Poincaré in Paris. The goal of this seminar is to provide up-to-date information about general topics of great interest in physics. Both the theoretical and experimental results are covered, with some historical background. Particular care is devoted to the pedagogical nature of the presentation. This volume is devoted to Quantum Decoherence. A broad perspective on the subject is provided by the contributions of W. H. Zurek, H. D. Zeh and E. Joos, together with clean up-to-date presentations of the actual experiments on decoherence both in the mesoscopic systems of atomic physics, by J.M. Raimond and S. Haroche, and in the "quantronic" or condensed matter context, by D. Esteve et al. Further, the question of quantum codes and error corrections is discussed in the contribution of J. Kempe
Quantum many body systems Cetraro, Italy 2010 by Centro internazionale matematico estivo( )
11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book is based on the lectures given at the CIME school "Quantum many body systems" held in the summer of 2010. It provides a tutorial introduction to recent advances in the mathematics of interacting systems, written by four leading experts in the field: V. Rivasseau illustrates the applications of constructive Quantum Field Theory to 2D interacting electrons and their relation to quantum gravity; R. Seiringer describes a proof of Bose-Einstein condensation in the Gross-Pitaevski limit and explains the effects of rotating traps and the emergence of lattices of quantized vortices; J.-P. Solovej gives an introduction to the theory of quantum Coulomb systems and to the functional analytic methods used to prove their thermodynamic stability; finally, T. Spencer explains the supersymmetric approach to Anderson localization and its relation to the theory of random matrices. All the lectures are characterized by their mathematical rigor combined with physical insights

Quantum spaces Poincaré Seminar 2007 by Vincent Rivasseau( )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Poincare Seminar is held twice a year at the Institute Henri Poincare in Paris. The goal of this seminar is to provide up-to-date information about general topics of great interest in physics. Both the theoretical and experimental results are covered, with some historical background. Particular care is devoted to the pedagogical nature of the presentation." "This book starts with an introduction by V. Pasquier on the usefulness of non-commutative geometry, especially in the condensed matter context of the Hall effect. This theme is further developed by A. Polychronakos, who together with L. Susskind introduced the concept of non-commutative fluids." "Jean-Michel Maillet compares the experimental results on one dimensional magnetic chains to the theoretical predictions based on the algebraic Bethe Ansatz and related to quantum group symmetries that he actively developed with many collaborators."--Jacket
Gravitation and experiment Poincaré Seminar 2006 by Thibault Damour( )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book starts with a detailed introduction to general relativity by world expert T. Damour. It includes a review of what may lie beyond by string theorist I. Antoniadis, and collects up-to-date essays on the experimental tests of this theory. Contrary to some beliefs, general relativity is now a theory extremely well confirmed by detailed experiments, including the precise timing of the double pulsar J0737-3039 explained by M. Kramer, member of the team which discovered it in 2003, and satellite missions such as Gravity Probe B described by leading team member J. Mester. The search for dete

Chaos : Poincaré Seminar 2010 by Bertrand Duplantier( )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This twelfth volume in the Poincaré Seminar Series presents a complete and interdisciplinary perspective on the concept of Chaos, both in classical mechanics in its deterministic version, and in quantum mechanics. This book expounds some of the most wide ranging questions in science, from uncovering the fingerprints of classical chaotic dynamics in quantum systems, to predicting the fate of our own planetary system
From peturbative to constructive renormalization by Vincent Rivasseau( Book )
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Poincaré Seminar 2002 : vacuum energy-renormalization by Poincaré Seminar( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Constructive physics results in field theory, statistical mechanics and condensed matter physics : proceedings of the conference held at Palaiseau, France 25-27 July 1994 by Vincent Rivasseau( )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Addressing graduate students and researchers in physics and mathematics, this book fills a gap in the literature. It is an introduction into modern constructive physics, field theory and statistical mechanics and a survey on the most recent research in this field. It presents the main technical tools such as cluster expansion and their implementation in the rigorous renormalization group, and studies physical models in some detail. The reader will find a study of the ultraviolet limit of the Gross-Neveu model, of continuous symmetry breaking and of self-avoiding random walks in statistical mechanics, as well as applications to solid-state physics. Mathematicians will find constructive methods useful for studies in partial differential equations
Poincare Seminar 2003 : Bose-Einstein condensation-entropy by Séminaire Poincaré( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
International Conference on Theoretical Physics : TH-2002, Paris, July 22-27, 2002 by Daniel Iagolnitzer( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Theoretical physics is a vast set of subjects, ideas and methods, with wide and unexpected applications to many interdisciplinary problems. But no general international conference had tried to review in depth this huge and burgeoning field since the Trieste conference in 1968. The International Conference on Theoretical Physics, TH-2002, which took place at the Unesco building, Paris, from July 22 to 27, 2002, addressed this challenge. The reader will find in this book all invited and received contributions to the conference. After the general lectures of Nobel prize winners Anderson and Yang, the contributions by experts cover all aspects of modern theoretical physics ranging from particle physics, string theory, cosmology, statistical and condensed matter physics to dynamical systems and quantum chaos, the physics/biology interface, information theory and quantum computing
International justice and impunity : the case against the United States ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La justice internationale perd toute crédibilité si les Etats puissants continuent à bénéficier d'une totale impunité. Le cas des Etats-Unis est emblématique : politique d'agression, traitements inhumains, détentions illégales, autant de "crimes internationaux" dont les responsables devraient être poursuivis selon la charte de l'ONU et les Conventions de Genève. Voici le constat accablant des faits d'Hiroshima à nos jours, les valeurs à défendre et les actions à mener pour que l'humanité l'emporte sur la barbarie
Biological physics by Bertrand Duplantier( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book contains articles from leading experts in different areas of biological physics. Topics ranging from cell dynamics to the evolution of multicellularity to conscious versus non-conscious evidence accumulation are reviewed and discussed, both from a theoretical and an experimental perspective. Furthermore, current developments of practical applications like magnetic tweezers for the study of DNA replication and brain imaging are presented
