Introduction to the AdS/CFT Correspondence by Horaƫiu Năstase

By Horaƫiu Năstase

supplying a pedagogical creation to the swiftly constructing box of AdS/CFT correspondence, this can be one of many first texts to supply an obtainable advent to the entire worthwhile suggestions had to have interaction with the equipment, instruments and purposes of AdS/CFT. with no assuming something past an introductory direction in quantum box thought, it starts off through guiding the reader throughout the easy strategies of box thought and gauge conception, normal relativity, supersymmetry, supergravity, string conception and conformal box conception, sooner than relocating directly to provide a transparent and rigorous account of AdS/CFT correspondence. the ultimate part discusses the extra specialized functions, together with QCD, quark-gluon plasma and condensed topic. This publication is self-contained and learner-focused, that includes quite a few routines and examples. it's crucial interpreting for either scholars and researchers around the fields of particle, nuclear and condensed subject physics.

Quantenmechanik und ihre Anwendungen (Springer-Lehrbuch) (German Edition)

 Das Buch bietet dem Leser eine leicht verständliche und anschauliche Einführung in die nichtrelativistische Quantenmechanik und behandelt einige ihrer wesentlichen Anwendungen. Der dargebotene Stoff umfaßt alle Grundlagen und Anwendungen der Quantenmechanik, die jeder Physik Studierende beherrschen sollte, um weiterführende Vorlesungen besuchen zu können.

How Physics Confronts Reality:Einstein was Correct, but Bohr Won the Game

This publication remembers, for nonscientific readers, the heritage of quantum mechanics, the details of its interpretation, and Einstein's objections to it, including the responses engendered via his arguments. preferred discussions at the unusual points of quantum mechanics forget about the elemental undeniable fact that Einstein used to be right in his insistence that the idea doesn't without delay describe truth.

Primer of Quantum Mechanics (Dover Books on Physics)

What does quantum mechanics let us know in regards to the key version actual platforms of nature? the writer of this extremely popular textual content explores this question in a conceptual demeanour, fusing mathematical and philosophical parts to provide actual imagery that heavily parallels the math. starting with an outline that discusses the basis and layout for the research, the textual content proceeds with an exam of the classical quantum bead on a music: its states and representations; its size spectra as operator eigenvalues; the harmonic oscillator: certain bead in a symmetric strength box; and the bead in a round shell.

Theoretische Physik: Relativistische Quantenmechanik, Quantenfeldtheorie und Elementarteilchentheorie (German Edition)

Von der zunächst in zwei umfangreichen Bänden erschienenen Theoretischen Physik von Eckhard Rebhan werden hiermit nach der Mechanik, der Elektrodynamik und der Quantenmechanik auch die Relativistische Quantenmechanik, die Quantenfeldtheorie und die Elementarteilchentheorie zusammen in einem dünneren Einzelband vorgelegt.
