Group Theory in Solid State Physics and Photonics: Problem Solving with Mathematica

While group theory and its application to solid state physics is well established, this textbook raises two completely new aspects. First, it provides a better understanding by focusing on problem solving and making extensive use of Mathematica tools to visualize the concepts. Second, it offers a new tool for the photonics commu...

Quantum Field Theory and Condensed Matter: An Introduction (1st Edition)

Providing a broad review of many techniques and their application to condensed matter systems, this book begins with a review of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, before moving onto real and imaginary time path integrals and the link between Euclidean quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. A detailed study of the I...

String Theory Methods for Condensed Matter Physics (1st Edition)

The discovery of a duality between Anti-de Sitter spaces (AdS) and Conformal Field Theories (CFT) has led to major advances in our understanding of quantum field theory and quantum gravity. String theory methods and AdS/CFT correspondence maps provide new ways to think about difficult condensed matter problems. String theory met...

Квантово-статистическая теория твердых тел

Книга посвящена квантовой теории элементарных возбуждений в твердых телах: фононов, поляритонов, плазмонов, квазиэлектронов, экситонов, поляронов, описанию их взаимодействия и проявлению особенностей их поведения в термодинамических и статистических характеристиках твердых тел. Отслеживается влияние размерности системы на законы...

Exactly Solvable Models in Many-Body Theory

The book reviews several theoretical, mostly exactly solvable, models for selected systems in condensed states of matter, including the solid, liquid, and disordered states, and for systems of few or many bodies, both with boson, fermion, or anyon statistics. Some attention is devoted to models for quantum liquids, including sup...

Growth and Characterization of Bulk Superconductor Material (1st Edition)

This book focuses on recently developed crystal growth techniques to grow large and high quality superconducting single crystals. The techniques applied are traveling solvent floating zone (TSFZ) with infrared image furnace, Bridgeman, solution/flux and top seeded solution growth (TSSG) methods. The materials range from cuprates...

Mechanics of Soft Materials (1st Edition)

This book provides a concise introduction to soft matter modelling. It offers an up-to-date review of continuum mechanical description of soft and biological materials from the basics to the latest scientific materials. It includes multi-physics descriptions, such as chemo-, thermo-, electro- mechanical coupling.It derives from ...

Structural Analysis of Metallic Glasses with Computational Homology (1st Edition)

This book introduces the application of computational homology for structural analysis of metallic glasses. Metallic glasses, relatively new materials in the field of metals, are the next-generation structural and functional materials owing to their excellent properties. To understand their properties and to develop novel metall...
