In 1966, E.H. Lieb and D.C. r1attis published a book on "Mathematical Physics in One Dimension" [Academic Press, New York and London] which is much more than just a collection of reprints and which in fact marked the beginnings of the rapidly growing interest in onedimensional problems and materials in the 1970's. In their Foreword, Lieb and r~attis made the observation that " ... there now exists a vast literature on this subject, albeit one which is not indexed under the topic "one dimension" in standard indexing journals and which is therefore hard to research ... ". Today, the situation is even worse, and we hope that these Proceedings will be a valuable guide to some of the main current areas of onedimensional physics. From a theoretical point of view, onedimensional problems have always been very attractive. Many nontrivial models are soluble in one dimension, while they are only approximately understood in three dimensions. Therefore, the corresponding exact solutions serve as a useful test of approximate ma thematical methods, and certain features of the onedimensional solution re main relevant in higher dimensions. On the other hand, many important phe nomena are strongly enhanced, and many concepts show up especially clearly in onedimensional or quasi onedimensional systems. Among them are the ef fects of fluctuations, of randomness, and of nonlinearity; a number of in teresting consequences are specific to one dimension.

The Oxford Solid State Basics
Lowest new price: $30.27
Lowest used price: $33.84
List price: $49.95
Author: Steven H. Simon
Brand: imusti

The study of solids is one of the richest, most exciting, and most successful branches of physics. While the subject of solid state physics is often viewed as dry and tedious this new book presents the topic instead as an exciting exposition of fundamental principles and great intellectual breakthroughs. Beginning with a discussion of how the study of heat capacity of solids ushered in the quantum revolution, the author presents the key ideas of the field while emphasizing the deep underlying concepts.
The book begins with a discussion of the Einstein/Debye model of specific heat, and the Drude/Sommerfeld theories of electrons in solids, which can all be understood without reference to any underlying crystal structure. The failures of these theories force a more serious investigation of microscopics. Many of the key ideas about waves in solids are then introduced using one dimensional models in order to convey concepts without getting bogged down with details. Only then does the book turn to consider real materials.
Chemical bonding is introduced and then atoms can be bonded together to crystal structures and reciprocal space results. Diffraction experiments, as the central application of these ideas, are discussed in great detail. From there, the connection is made to electron wave diffraction in solids and how it results in electronic band structure. The natural culmination of this thread is the triumph of semiconductor physics and devices.
The final section of the book considers magnetism in order to discuss a range of deeper concepts. The failures of band theory due to electron interaction, spontaneous magnetic orders, and mean field theories are presented well. Finally, the book gives a brief exposition of the Hubbard model that undergraduates can understand.
The book presents all of this material in a clear fashion, dense with explanatory or just plain entertaining footnotes. This may be the best introductory book for learning solid state physics. It is certainly the most fun to read.

Quantum Ising Phases and Transitions in Transverse Ising Models (Lecture Notes in Physics)
Lowest new price: $77.30
Lowest used price: $83.79
List price: $89.95
Author: Sei Suzuki
Brand: Brand: Springer

Quantum phase transitions, driven by quantum fluctuations, exhibit intriguing features offering the possibility of potentially new applications, e.g. in quantum information sciences. Major advances have been made in both theoretical and experimental investigations of the nature and behavior of quantum phases and transitions in cooperatively interacting manybody quantum systems. For modeling purposes, most of the current innovative and successful research in this field has been obtained by either directly or indirectly using the insights provided by quantum (or transverse field) Ising models because of the separability of the cooperative interaction from the tunable transverse field or tunneling term in the relevant Hamiltonian. Also, a number of condensed matter systems can be modeled accurately in this approach, hence granting the possibility to compare advanced models with actual experimental results. This work introduces these quantum Ising models and analyses them both theoretically and numerically in great detail. With its tutorial approach the book addresses above all young researchers who wish to enter the field and are in search of a suitable and selfcontained text, yet it will also serve as a valuable reference work for all active researchers in this area.

The paradigm of dark matter has been one of the key developments at the interface between cosmology and elementary particle physics in the past century, and one of the foundational blocks of the Standard Cosmological Model. This book offers a brand new perspective within this complex field: building and testing particle physics models for cosmological dark matter. Chapters are organized to give a clear understanding of key research directions and methods within the field. The discussion is interspersed with several suggested problems, which question understanding and provide firsthand experience in transferring knowledge into practice. Appendices are also provided to summarize physical principles, in order to enable the building of a quantitative and wellfounded understanding of particle models for dark matter. Rather than a review, key facts and findings are presented from the bottom up, separated and broken down into approachable sections and classroombased discussions. This is essential reading for anyone interested in the quest for understanding the microscopic nature of dark matter as it manifests itself in particle physics experiments, cosmological observations, and highenergy astrophysical phenomena. This highly interdisciplinary book is a primer for cosmologists and astrophysicists interested in building an understanding of particle models for dark matter, as well as for particle physicists interested in earlyuniverse cosmology and highenergy astrophysics.
