Quantum Arrangements: Contributions in Honor of Michael Horne by Gregg Jaeger
English | PDF,EPUB | 2021 | 205 Pages | ISBN : 3030773663 | 17.2 MB

This book presents a collection of novel contributions and reviews by renowned researchers in the foundations of quantum physics, quantum optics, and neutron physics. It is published in honor of Michael Horne, whose exceptionally clear and groundbreaking work in the foundations of quantum mechanics and interferometry, both of photons and of neutrons, has provided penetrating insight into the implications of modern physics for our understanding of the physical world.

Making Sense of Quantum Mechanics by Bricmont, Jean
English | PDF | 2016 | 335 Pages | ISBN : 3319258877 | 4.3 MB

This book explains, in simple terms, with a minimum of mathematics, why things can appear to be in two places at the same time, why correlations between simultaneous events occurring far apart cannot be explained by local mechanisms, and why, nevertheless, the quantum theory can be understood in terms of matter in motion. No need to worry, as some people do, whether a cat can be both dead and alive, whether the moon is there when nobody looks at it, or whether quantum systems need an observer to acquire definite properties. The author’s inimitable and even humorous style makes the book a pleasure to read while bringing a new clarity to many of the longstanding puzzles of quantum physics.

Quantum Mechanics, 4th Edition by Franz Schwabl
English | PDF | 2007 | 425 Pages | ISBN : 3540719326 | 6.9 MB

This represents the introductory course which would precede and so complements the author's book on Advanced Quantum Mechanics. The new edition has been up-dated and thoroughly revised throughout and now includes many new or newly drawn figures which will facilitate an easier understanding of subtle topics. The book meets students' needs in providing detailed mathematical steps along the way, with worked examples and applications throughout the text, and many problems for the reader at the end of each chapter.

An Introduction to the Evolution of Single and Binary Stars by Matthew Benacquista
English | PDF | 2013 | 262 Pages | ISBN : 1441999906 | 4.4 MB

An Introduction to the Evolution of Single and Binary Stars provides physicists with an understanding of binary and single star evolution, beginning with a background and introduction of basic astronomical concepts. Although a general treatment of stellar structure and evolution is included, the text stresses the physical processes that lead to stellar mass compact object binaries that may be sources of observable gravitational radiation.

Mind, Matter and Quantum Mechanics by Henry P. Stapp
English | PDF | 2004 | 297 Pages | ISBN : 3662053713 | 28.9 MB

"Scientists other than quantum physicists often fail to comprehend the enormity of the conceptual change wrought by quantum theory in our basic conception of the nature of matter," writes Henry Stapp. Stapp is a leading quantum physicist who has given particularly careful thought to the implications of the theory that lies at the heart of modern physics.

The Emerging Physics of Consciousness by Jack A. Tuszynski
English | PDF | 2006 | 500 Pages | ISBN : 3540238905 | 8 MB

Consciousness remains one of the major unsolved problems in science. How do the feelings and sensations making up conscious experience arise from the concerted actions of nerve cells and their associated synaptic and molecular processes? Can such feelings be explained by modern science, or is there an entirely different kind of explanation needed?

The Picture Book of Quantum Mechanics, Second Edition by Siegmund Brandt
English | PDF | 1995 | 442 Pages | ISBN : 1468402358 | 32.1 MB

In studying classical mechanics, students are often helped by the fact that intuitions developed in everday life can give one a good idea of the behavior of the idealized objects dealt with in introductory courses. In addition, equations encountered are sufficiently simple to solve even in relatively complex situations that students can further develop their intution by solving problems.

Now in its 2nd edition, Quantum Mechanics on the PC presents the most up-to-date approach to elementary quantum mechanics. It is based on the interactive program Interquanta, which runs on MS-DOS either with or without coprocessor (two separate versions included on a 3 1/2'' diskette).

Quantum Mechanics of Fundamental Systems: The Quest for Beauty and Simplicity: Claudio Bunster Festschrift by Jorge Zanelli
English | PDF | 300 Pages | ISBN : 0387874984 | 3.6 MB

In life and work, Claudio Bunster (formerly Teitelboim) prefers extreme challenges. Bunster, a physicist who contemplates brain-warping theories of space and time, returned to his native Chile from the United States precisely when most intellectuals would have stayed clear— during the middle of the Pinochet dictatorship (K. Mossman, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences)

Quantum Theory for Mathematicians by Brian C. Hall
English | EPUB | 2013 | 566 Pages | ISBN : 146147115X | 6.57 MB

Although ideas from quantum physics play an important role in many parts of modern mathematics, there are few books about quantum mechanics aimed at mathematicians. This book introduces the main ideas of quantum mechanics in language familiar to mathematicians. Readers with little prior exposure to physics will enjoy the book's conversational tone as they delve into such topics as the Hilbert space approach to quantum theory; the Schrödinger equation in one space dimension; the Spectral Theorem for bounded and unbounded self-adjoint operators; the Stone–von Neumann Theorem; the Wentzel–Kramers–Brillouin approximation; the role of Lie groups and Lie algebras in quantum mechanics; and the path-integral approach to quantum mechanics.
