Exploring the Quantum: Atoms, Cavities, and Photons (Oxford Graduate Texts) Lowest new price: $60.00
Lowest used price: $19.07
List price: $105.00
Author: Serge Haroche

The counter-intuitive aspects of quantum physics have been for long illustrated by thought experiments, from Einstein's photon box to Schródinger's cat. These experiments have now become real, with single particles--electrons, atoms or photons--directly unveiling the weird features of the quantum. State superpositions, entanglement and complementarity define a novel quantum logic which can be harnessed for information processing, raising great hopes for applications. This book describes a class of such thought experiments made real. Juggling with atoms and photons confined in cavities, ions or cold atoms in traps, is here an incentive to shed a new light on the basic concepts of quantum physics. Measurement processes and decoherence at the quantum-classical boundary are highlighted. This volume, which combines theory and experiments, will be of interest to students in quantum physics, teachers seeking illustrations for their lectures and new problem sets, researchers in quantum optics and quantum information.

The ability to produce durable low-friction surfaces and lubricant fluids has become an important factor in the miniaturization of moving components in many technological devices, e.g., magnetic storage, recording systems, miniature motors and many aerospace components. This book will be useful to physicists, chemists, materials scientists, and engineers who need to understand sliding friction. This second edition covers several new topics including friction on superconductors, simulations of the layering transition, nanoindentation, wear in combustion engines, rolling and sliding of carbon nanotubes, and the friction dynamics of granular materials.

Lowest used price: $42.80
List price: $70.00
Author: John Singleton
Brand: imusti

This latest text in the new Oxford Master Series in Physics provides a much need introduction to band theory and the electronic properties of materials. Written for students in physics and material science, the book takes a pedagogical approach to the subject through the extensive use of illustrations, examples and problem sets. The author draws on his extensive experience teaching band theory to provide the reader with a thorough understanding of the field. Considerable attention is paid to the vocabulary and quantum-mechanical training necessary to learn about the electronic, optical and structural properties of materials in science and technology. The text also offers several chapters on the newest experimental techniques used to study band structure. Concise yet rigorous, it fills a long overdue gap between student texts and current research activities.

"A well-written text . . . should find a wide readership, especially among graduate students." — Dr. J. I. Pankove, RCA.
The field of solid state theory, including crystallography, semi-conductor physics, and various applications in chemistry and electrical engineering, is highly relevant to many areas of modern science and industry. Professor Harrison's well-known text offers an excellent one-year graduate course in this active and important area of research. While presenting a broad overview of the fundamental concepts and methods of solid state physics, including the basic quantum theory of solids, it surpasses more theoretical treatments in its practical coverage of physical applications. This feature makes the book especially useful to specialists in other fields who many encounter solid state problems in their own work. At least one year of quantum mechanics is required; however, the author introduces more advanced methods as needed.
Because virtually all of the properties of solids are determined by the valence electrons, the author devotes the first third of the book to electron states, including solid types and symmetry, band structure, electron dynamics, the self-consistent-field approximation, energy-band calculations, semi-conductor and semi-metal bands, impurity states, the electronic structure of liquids, and other topics. Dr. Harrison then turns to a more systematic treatment of the electronic properties of solids, focusing on thermodynamic properties, transport properties (including the Boltzmann equation), semi-conductor systems, screening, optical properties, the Landau theory of Fermi liquids, and amorphous semi-conductors.
In the final two chapters, Professor Harrison offers a cogent treatment of lattice vibrations and atomic properties and cooperative phenomena (magnetism and superconductivity). In addition to traditional background information, the book features penetrating discussions of such currently active problems as the Mott transition, the electronic structure of disordered systems, tunneling the Kondo effect, and fluctuation near critical points. In an important sense, the entire text constitutes a major vehicle for the clarification of quantum mechanics, resulting from, among other factors, a comparison of the semi-classical (Boltzmann equation) treatment of screening and the corresponding quantum (Liouville equation) treatment.

Lowest used price: $61.74
List price: $69.95
Brand: OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS ACADEM

Over the last decade new experimental tools and theoretical concepts are providing new insights into collective nonequilibrium behavior of quantum systems. The exquisite control provided by laser trapping and cooling techniques allows us to observe the behavior of condensed bose and degenerate Fermi gases under nonequilibrium drive or after `quenches' in which a Hamiltonian parameter is suddenly or slowly changed. On the solid state front, high intensity short-time pulses and fast (femtosecond) probes allow solids to be put into highly excited states and probed before relaxation and dissipation occur. Experimental developments are matched by progress in theoretical techniques ranging from exact solutions of strongly interacting nonequilibrium models to new approaches to nonequilibrium numerics. The summer school `Strongly interacting quantum systems out of equilibrium' held at the Les Houches School of Physics as its XCIX session was designed to summarize this progress, lay out the open questions and define directions for future work. This books collects the lecture notes of the main courses given in this summer school.
