Diffusive motion–displacement due to the cumulative effect of irregular fluctuations–has been a fundamental concept in mathematics and physics since Einstein’s work on Brownian motion. It is also relevant to understanding various aspects of quantum theory. This book explains diffusive motion and its relation to both nonrelativistic quantum theory and quantum field theory. It shows how diffusive motion concepts lead to a radical reexamination of the structure of mathematical analysis.
This book provides quick access to quantum mechanics without dealing with a true textbook that demands proper specialized studies in physics (and related mathematics) for about a couple of years. It consists of three parts: basic formalism, formal development, and ontological issues. The 70 figures are a crucial instrument for becoming acquainted in a "representative" way with abstract problems, and the 30 in-section boxes assist readers understand for difficult mathematical problems. The book offers a considerable number of clear and analytical treatments of what are considered the most difficult conceptual problems of the theory.
This lecture notes in physics volume mainly focuses on the semi classical and qu- tum aspects of percolation and breakdown in disordered, composite or granular s- tems. The main reason for this undertaking has been the fact that, of late, there have been a lot of (theoretical) work on quantum percolation, but there is not even a (single) published review on the topic (and, of course, no book).
This thesis presents recent developments in magnetic coupling phenomena of ferrimagnetic rare-earth transition-metal Tb-Fe alloys and coupled systems consisting of ferri-/ferromagnetic heterostructures.
Reflecting the growing volume of published work in this field, researchers will find this book an invaluable source of information on current methods and applications.
This booklet contains solutions to 191 problems in quantum field theory found in the text Student Friendly Quantum Field Theory by Robert D. Klauber.
By incorporating extensive student input and innovative teaching methodologies, this book aims to make the process of learning quantum field theory easier, and thus more rapid, profound, and efficient, for both students and instructors. Comprehensive explanations are favored over conciseness, every step in derivations is included, and ‘big picture’ overviews are provided throughout.Typical student responses indicate how well the text achieves its aim."[This] book … makes quantum field theory much easier to understand!""Thanks for … making quantum field theory clearer!""Awesome.
Presenting an up-to-date report on electronic glasses, this book examines experiments and theories for a variety of disordered materials where electrons exhibit glassy properties. Some interesting mathematical models of idealized systems are also discussed. The authors examine problems in this field, highlighting which issues are currently understood and which require further research. Where appropriate, the authors focus on physical arguments over elaborate derivations. The book provides introductory background material on glassy systems, properties of disordered systems and transport properties so it can be understood by researchers in condensed matter physics who are new to this field.

The theory of water waves has been a source of intriguing and often difficult mathematical problems for at least 150 years. Virtually every classical mathematical technique appears somewhere within its confines. Beginning with the introduction of the appropriate equations of fluid mechanics, the opening chapters of this text consider the classical problems in linear and non-linear water-wave theory.
As the industry environment transforms from a completely regulated setting to a broader, deregulated marketplace, new market participants must understand planning and operations of power systems to effectively participate in markets. This industry overview provides a description of utility operations and traditional planning, and then explains asset management, investment analysis, and risk management within the context of a market environment.
This book presents in a short volume the basics of quantum field theory and many body physics. The first part introduces the perturbative techniques without sophisticated apparatus and applies them to numerous problems including quantum electrodynamics (renormalization), Fermi and Bose gases, the Brueckner theory of nuclear system, liquid Helium and classical systems with noise. The material is clear, illustrative and the important points are stressed to help the reader get the understanding of what is crucial without overwhelming him with unnecessary detours or comments.

Light pollution filters
Neutral density filters for Moon observation
Deep-sky filters, for such objects as galaxies, nebulae and more
Deep-sky objects can be imaged in much greater detail than was possible many years ago.

Die Funktionentheorie ist ein wunderschönes und außerordentlich mächtiges Gebiet der Mathematik. Einige der sehr eindrucksvollen Beispiele dafür sind vermeintlich schwierige Integrale, die sich nach einer Umformung zu Integralen entlang der Wege in der komplexen Ebene mühelos berechnen lassen – sowie extrem komplizierte Differential- und Integralgleichungen, die mit Hilfe ähnlicher Methoden sehr elegant gelöst werden können. Manchmal ist die Anwendung dieser Techniken reine Routine, in vielen Fällen jedoch grenzt sie an Kunst.
