Statistical mechanics : selecta of Elliott H. Lieb by Elliott H Lieb( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Statistical Physics one of the ambitious goals is to derive rigorously, from statistical mechanics, the thermodynamic properties of models with realistic forces. Elliott Lieb is a mathematical physicist who meets the challenge of statistical mechanics head on, taking nothing for granted and not being content until the purported consequences have been shown, by rigorous analysis, to follow from the premises. The present volume contains a selection of his contributions to the field, in particular papers dealing with general properties of Coulomb systems, phase transitions in systems with a continuous symmetry, lattice crystals, and entropy inequalities. It also includes work on classical thermodynamics, a discipline that, despite many claims to the contrary, is logically independent of statistical mechanics and deserves a rigorous and unambiguous foundation of its own. The articles in this volume have been carefully annotated by the editors
Condensed matter physics and exactly soluble models : selecta of Elliott H. Lieb by Elliott H Lieb( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first part of this book contains E. Lieb's fundamental contributions to the mathematical theory of Condensed Matter Physics. Often considered the founding father of the field, E. Lieb demonstrates his ability to select the most important issues and to formulate them as well-defined mathematical problems and, finally, to solve them. The second part presents Lieb's work on integrable models. His groundbreaking articles helped to establish Exactly Soluble Models as a flourishing research field in its own right. The papers collected in this volume have also been carefully annotated by the editors
Waves & distributions by Þórður Jónsson( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quantum many body systems : Cetraro, Italy 2010 by Vincent Rivasseau( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 114 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
Boltzmann's legacy by International Symposium "Boltzmann's Legacy"( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erwin Schrödinger--50 years after by International symposium "Erwin Schrödinger - 50 years after"( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erwin Schrödinger (1887-1961) was an Austrian physicist famous for the equation named after him and which earned him the Nobel Prize in 1933. This book contains lectures presented at the international symposium Erwin Schrödinger - 50 Years After held at the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematical Physics in January 2011 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Schrödinger's death. The text covers a broad spectrum of topics ranging from personal reminiscences to foundational questions of quantum mechanics and historical accounts of Schrödinger's work. Besides the lectures presented at the symposium the volume also contains articles specially written for this occasion. The contributions give an overview of Schrödinger's legacy to the sciences from the standpoint of some of present day's leading scholars in the field. The book addresses students and researchers in mathematics, physics and the history of science
Lineare Funktionale auf der Feldalgebra und ihre Zerlegung in positive Funktionale by Jakob Yngvason( Book )

5 editions published in 1973 in German and Undetermined and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advances in algebraic quantum field theory by Claudio Dappiaggi( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text focuses on the algebraic formulation of quantum field theory, from the introductory aspects to the applications to concrete problems of physical interest. The book is divided in thematic chapters covering both introductory and more advanced topics. These include the algebraic, perturbative approach to interacting quantum field theories, algebraic quantum field theory on curved spacetimes (from its structural aspects to the applications in cosmology and to the role of quantum spacetimes), algebraic conformal field theory, the Kitaev's quantum double model from the point of view of local quantum physics and constructive aspects in relation to integrable models and deformation techniques." -- Back cover
The physics and mathematics of the second law of thermodynamics by Elliott H Lieb( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scaling limits in statistical mechanics and microstructures in continuum mechanics by Errico Presutti( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Collective behavior in systems with many components, blow-ups with emergence of microstructures are proofs of the double, continuum and atomistic, nature of macroscopic systems, an issue which has always intrigued scientists and philosophers. Modern technologies have made the question more actual and concrete with recent, remarkable progresses also from a mathematical point of view. The book focuses on the links connecting statistical and continuum mechanics and, starting from elementary introductions to both theories, it leads to actual research themes. Mathematical techniques and methods from probability, calculus of variations and PDE are discussed at length."--Jacket
Atoms in strong magnetic fields : the high field limit at fixed nuclear charge by Bernhard Baumgartner( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mathematics of the Bose gas and its condensation by Elliott H Lieb( )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book contains a unique survey of the mathematically rigorous results about the quantum-mechanical many-body problem that have been obtained by the authors in the past seven years. It addresses a topic that is not only rich mathematically, using a large variety of techniques in mathematical analysis, but is also one with strong ties to current experiments on ultra-cold Bose gases and Bose-Einstein condensation. The book provides a pedagogical entry into an active area of ongoing research for both graduate students and researchers."--Jacket
There are no causality problems for Fermi's two atom system( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quantum Entropies Dynamics, Information and Complexity by Fabio Benatti( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The leading theme of the book is complexity in quantum dynamics. This issue is addressed by comparison with the classical ergodic, information and algorithmic complexity theories. Of particular importance is the notion of Kolmogorov-Sinai dynamical entropy and of its inequivalent quantum extensions formulated by Connes, Narnhofer and Thirring on one hand and Alicki and Fannes on the other. Their connections with extensions to quantum systems of Kolmogorov-Chaitin-Solomonoff algorithmic complexity theory is also presented. The technical tools employed are those of the algebraic approach to quantum statistical mechanics which offers a unifying view of classical and quantum dynamical systems. Proofs and examples are provided in order to make the presentation self consistent
