An Introduction to Macroscopic Quantum Phenomena and Quantum by A. O. Caldeira

By A. O. Caldeira

Reviewing macroscopic quantum phenomena and quantum dissipation, from the phenomenology of magnetism and superconductivity to the presentation of different versions for quantum dissipation, this booklet develops the fundamental fabric essential to comprehend the quantum dynamics of macroscopic variables. Macroscopic quantum phenomena are awarded via numerous examples in magnetism and superconductivity, constructed from common phenomenological techniques to every region. Dissipation clearly performs a major position in those phenomena, and consequently semi-empirical types for quantum dissipation are brought and utilized to the examine of some vital quantum mechanical results. The e-book additionally discusses the relevance of macroscopic quantum phenomena to the regulate of meso- or nanoscopic units, relatively people with strength functions in quantum computation or quantum info. it's excellent for graduate scholars and researchers.

This super winning book/disk package deal is helping scholars to fast dispel the secret at the back of the complicated thoughts fascinated about quantum mechanics. With greater than 2 hundred difficulties, it presents readers with sensible reviews in utilizing such hard-to-visualise recommendations as complicated amplitudes, eigenvalues, and scattering move sections.

Quantum Reality, Relativistic Causality, and Closing the Epistemic Circle: Essays in Honour of Abner Shimony: 73 (The Western Ontario Series in Philosophy of Science)

In July 2006, a tremendous foreign convention was once held on the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Canada, to have a good time the profession and paintings of a awesome guy of letters. Abner Shimony, who's popular for his pioneering contributions to foundations of quantum mechanics, is a physicist in addition to a thinker, and is extremely revered one of the intellectuals of either groups.

Modifications of Einstein's Theory of Gravity at Large Distances (Lecture Notes in Physics)

Within the previous couple of years changed gravity theories were proposed as extensions of Einstein's concept of gravity. Their major motivation is to provide an explanation for the most recent cosmological and astrophysical information on darkish power and darkish topic. The examine of common relativity at small scales has already produced very important effects (cf e.

Characterizing Entanglement and Quantum Correlations Constrained by Symmetry (Springer Theses)

This thesis makes a speciality of the learn and characterization of entanglement and nonlocal correlations limited less than symmetries. It contains unique effects in addition to particular tools and reasons for a few assorted threads of analysis: optimistic partial transpose (PPT) entanglement within the symmetric states; a unique, experimentally pleasant way to become aware of nonlocal correlations in many-body platforms; the non-equivalence among entanglement and nonlocality; and elemental monogamies of correlations.
