The Casimir effect : physical manifestations of zero-point energy by K. A Milton( )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 1,726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Casimir effect is a quantum force of attraction between two parallel uncharged conducting plates. More generally, it refers to the interaction between material bodies due to quantum fluctuations in whatever fields are relevant
Proceedings of the Ninth Conference on Quantum Field Theory Under the Influence of External Conditions (QFEXT09) : devoted to the Centenary of H.B.G. Casimir, University of Oklahoma, USA, 21-25 September 2009 by Conference on Quantum Field Theory Under the Influence of External Conditions( )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

QFEXT is the leading international conference held every two years, highlighting progress in quantum vacuum energy phenomena, the Casimir effect, and related topics, both experimentally and theoretically. This proceedings volume, featuring contributions from many of the key players in the field, serves as a definitive source of information on this subject, which is playing an increasingly important role in nanotechnology and in understanding fundamental issues in physics such as renormalization and in the search for new physics including fifth forces and dark energy
A quantum legacy : seminal papers of Julian Schwinger by Julian Schwinger( )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Julian Schwinger (1918-94) contributed to a broad range of topics in theoretical physics, from classical electrodynamics to quantum mechanics. This volume includes many of his most important papers
Classical electrodynamics by Julian Schwinger( )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text for the graduate classical electrodynamics course was left unfinished upon Julian Schwinger's death in 1994, but was completed by his coauthors, who have brilliantly recreated the excitement of Schwinger's novel approach. Classical Electrodynamics captures Schwinger's inimitable lecturing style, in which everything flows inexorably from what has gone before. An essential resource for both physicists and their students, the book includes a "Reader's Guide", which describes the major themes in each chapter, suggests a possible path through the book, and identifies topics for inclusion
Electromagnetic radiation : variational methods, waveguides and accelerators : including seminal papers of Julian Schwinger by K. A Milton( )

28 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a graduate level textbook on the theory of electromagnetic radiation and its application to waveguides, transmission lines, accelerator physics and synchrotron radiation. It has grown out of lectures and manuscripts by Julian Schwinger prepared during the war at MIT's Radiation Laboratory, updated with material developed by Schwinger at UCLA in the 1970s and 1980s, and by Milton at the University of Oklahoma since 1994. The book includes a great number of straight-forward and challenging exercises and problems. It is addressed to students in physics, electrical engineering, and applied mathematics seeking a thorough introduction to electromagnetism with emphasis on radiation theory and its applications. A hardcover edition containing additionally the reprints of more than 15 papers by Schwinger on these topics is available separately. Book jacket."--Jacket
Climbing the mountain : the scientific biography of Julian Schwinger by K. A Milton( Book )

26 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Julian Schwinger was one of the leading theoretical physicists of the twentieth century. His contributions are as important, and as pervasive, as those of Richard Feynman, with whom (and with Sin-itiro Tomonaga) he shared the 1965 Nobel Prize for Physics. Yet, while Feynman is universally recognized as a cultural icon, Schwinger is little known even to many within the physics community. This biography aims to describe Schwinger's life and research contributions to a wider audience." "This biography describes the many strands of his research life, while tracing the personal life of this private and gentle genius."--Jacket

Selected papers (1937-1976) of Julian Schwinger by Julian Schwinger( Book )

10 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schwinger's quantum action principle : from Dirac's formulation through Feynman's path integrals, the Schwinger-Keldysh Method, quantum field theory, to source theory by K. A Milton( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting from the earlier notions of stationary action principles, these tutorial notes shows how Schwinger's Quantum Action Principle descended from Dirac's formulation, which independently led Feynman to his path-integral formulation of quantum mechanics. Part I brings out in more detail the connection between the two formulations, and applications are discussed. Then, the Keldysh-Schwinger time-cycle method of extracting matrix elements is described. Part II will discuss the variational formulation of quantum electrodynamics and the development of source theory
