A Universe of Atoms, An Atom in the Universe by Mark P. Silverman

By Mark P. Silverman

jThis completely up to date and revised textual content includes a number of well-written essays in accordance with Silvermans paintings on quite a lot of themes, together with: quantum mechanics, together with atomic and nuclear physics, electromagnetism and optics, gravity, thermodynamics, and the physics of fluids. providing a private odyssey in physics, Silverman investigates techniques for which no visualizable mechanism may be given, or that appear to violate primary actual legislation (but do not). The discussions use little arithmetic, and someone with a bit university physics can be capable of learn the booklet with excitement.

-Engagingly written -Easily comprehensible via either the final reader and the professional physicist -Covers a variety of topics from "hot" themes in modern physics to much less well known yet refined and interesting concerns in physics -Discusses actual actual structures whose habit provokes, surprises and demanding situations the mind's eye -This moment variation is newly revised and updated

Quantum Mechanics in Chemistry (Dover Books on Chemistry)

Meant for graduate and complicated undergraduate scholars, this article explores quantum mechanical ideas from the point of view of chemistry and fabrics technology. Dynamics, symmetry, and formalism are emphasised. An preliminary overview of simple innovations from introductory quantum mechanics is through chapters interpreting symmetry, rotations, and angular momentum addition.

Quantum Mind and Social Science: Unifying Physical and Social Ontology

There's an underlying assumption within the social sciences that attention and social lifestyles are eventually classical physical/material phenomena. during this groundbreaking e-book, Alexander Wendt demanding situations this assumption by means of presenting that cognizance is, in truth, a macroscopic quantum mechanical phenomenon.

Back-of-the-Envelope Quantum Mechanics:With Extensions to Many-Body Systems and Integrable PDEs

Dimensional and order-of-magnitude estimates are practiced by way of virtually everyone yet taught virtually nowhere. while physics scholars have interaction of their first theoretical study undertaking, they quickly study that precisely solvable difficulties belong basically to textbooks, that numerical types are lengthy and source eating, and that “something else” is required to speedy achieve perception into the method they will examine.

Intersection Spaces, Spatial Homology Truncation, and String Theory (Lecture Notes in Mathematics)

Intersection cohomology assigns teams which fulfill a generalized kind of Poincaré duality over the rationals to a stratified singular area. This monograph introduces a mode that assigns to definite sessions of stratified areas mobile complexes, referred to as intersection areas, whoseordinary rational homology satisfies generalized Poincaré duality.
