Computational Atomic Structure: An MCHF Approach

Computational Atomic Structure: An MCHF Approach Lowest new price: $25.34
Lowest used price: $15.34
List price: $115.00
Author: Charlotte Froese-Fischer
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

Computational Atomic Structure: An MCHF Approach deals with the field of computational atomic structure, specifically with the multiconfiguration Hartree-Fock (MCHF) approach and the manner in which this approach is used in modern physics. Beginning with an introduction to computational algorithms and procedures for atomic physics, the book describes the theory underlying nonrelativistic atomic structure calculations (making use of Brett-Pauli corrections for relativistic effects) and details how the MCHF atomic structure software package can be used to this end. The book concludes with a treatment of atomic properties, such as energy levels, electron affinities, transition probabilities, specific mass shift, fine structure, hyperfine-structure, and autoionization. This modern, reliable exposition of atomic structure theory proves invaluable to anyone looking to make use of the authors' MCHF atomic structure software package, which is available publicly via the Internet.

Atoms, Electrons, and Change: A Scientific American Library Book

Atoms, Electrons, and Change: A Scientific American Library Book Lowest new price: $27.00
Lowest used price: $0.49
List price: $32.95
Author: P. W. Atkins
Brand: Freeman

A century and a half ago the pioneering physicist and chemist Michael Faraday delivered a celebrated series of lectures that attempted to explain the inner workings of matter through the chemical history of a candle. "There is no better, there is no more open door by which you can enter into the study of natural philosophy", Faraday told his audience. Now the distinguished chemist P.W. Atkins follows in Faraday's footsteps, using his predecessor's deceptively simple theme to show how far we have come in understanding the remarkable chemical reactions that govern everything from how candles burn to how life functions. While Faraday could say little more than that a chemical reaction changes a substance's appearance and properties, chemists today understand reactions in terms of the rearrangement of atoms and electrons. Atkins - tracing the course of a carbon atom released by a flaming candle - explores the complex forces that operate at the atomic and sub atomic levels to drive these rearrangements.

Rydberg States of Atoms and Molecules

Rydberg States of Atoms and Molecules Lowest used price: $23.23
List price: $145.00

After the development of the tunable laser, experimental studies in Rydberg states of atoms and molecules grew at a remarkable rate. Fundamental questions were resolved, opening doors for more experimental activity and theoretical inquiry. In this comprehensive summary of knowledge of Rydberg states, which was originally published in 1983, Professors Stebbings and Dunning brought together a select collection of experimental and theoretical discussions. Composed of works by the acknowledged leaders in the field, this volume will be of value for anyone with an interest in molecular physics.


MIT Wavelength Tables, Vol. 2: Wavelengths by Element

MIT Wavelength Tables, Vol. 2: Wavelengths by Element Lowest new price: $374.21
Lowest used price: $85.00
List price: $140.00

In 1939 George Harrison published his classic Wavelength Tables "with intensities in arc, spark, or discharge tube of more than 100,000 spectrum lines most strongly emitted by the atomic elements under normal conditions of excitation between 10,000 A. and 2000 A. arranged in order of decreasing wavelengths." The book's major strengths were the comprehensiveness of its coverage and the consistency of the conditions under which measurements were taken. A corrected edition published in 1969 is still available from The MIT Press.

The second volume of M.I.T. Wavelength Tables presents a rearrangement of Harrison's spectrum lines by element rather than by wavelength. It also includes wavelengths in vacuum and corresponding wavenumbers, which are important for theoretical studies.

This reference work will be useful to analytical chemists, atomic spectroscopists, astronomers, and other researchers and students who need accessible and comprehensive summaries of lines emitted by a given element.

Frederick M. Phelps III is an associate professor in the Department of Physics at Central Michigan University.

Einstein and Oppenheimer: The Meaning of Genius

Einstein and Oppenheimer: The Meaning of Genius Lowest new price: $18.40
Lowest used price: $5.97
List price: $29.95
Author: Silvan S. Schweber
Brand: Brand: Harvard University Press

Albert Einstein and J. Robert Oppenheimer, two iconic scientists of the twentieth century, belonged to different generations, with the boundary marked by the advent of quantum mechanics. By exploring how these men differed—in their worldview, in their work, and in their day—this book provides powerful insights into the lives of two critical figures and into the scientific culture of their times. In Einstein’s and Oppenheimer’s philosophical and ethical positions, their views of nuclear weapons, their ethnic and cultural commitments, their opinions on the unification of physics, even the role of Buddhist detachment in their thinking, the book traces the broader issues that have shaped science and the world.

Einstein is invariably seen as a lone and singular genius, while Oppenheimer is generally viewed in a particular scientific, political, and historical context. Silvan Schweber considers the circumstances behind this perception, in Einstein’s coherent and consistent self-image, and its relation to his singular vision of the world, and in Oppenheimer’s contrasting lack of certainty and related non-belief in a unitary, ultimate theory. Of greater importance, perhaps, is the role that timing and chance seem to have played in the two scientists’ contrasting characters and accomplishments—with Einstein’s having the advantage of maturing at a propitious time for theoretical physics, when the Newtonian framework was showing weaknesses.

Bringing to light little-examined aspects of these lives, Schweber expands our understanding of two great figures of twentieth-century physics—but also our sense of what such greatness means, in personal, scientific, and cultural terms.

Atomic, Molecular, & Optical Physics Handbook

Atomic, Molecular, & Optical Physics Handbook Lowest new price: $42.00
Lowest used price: $9.57
List price: $149.00

Here is the first single volume to bridge the many interrelated disciplines of atomic, molecular, and optical physics (AMOP). An invaluable ready reference for many scientists, the Atomic, Molecular, & Optical Physics Handbook offers a broad compendium of key AMOP ideas, formulae, techniques, and results.
To ensure that this ambitious publication covers the most important areas for scientists today, the editor first surveyed members of The American Physical Society's Division of Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics and other leading researchers. Editor Gordon W. F. Drake and an eleven-member Editorial Board arranged the topics by subject and assigned experts to write individual chapters.
Over 100 authors, all leaders in their respective disciplines, contributed. The AMOP Handbook's 88 chapters are divided into seven broad areas: mathematical methods, molecules, scattering experiment, applications, atoms, scattering theory, and quantum optics.
Chapters are extensively cross-referenced to bring out important relationships in different disciplines. They also feature helpful diagrams of apparatus, graphical presentations of data, and tabular material. A comprehensive index of over 4,300 entries makes it easy to find information on any topic.
Physicists, engineers, teachers, and students will find the AMOP Handbook to be both an authoritative resource and an essential guide to the field.
