Topics in Atomic Physics by Charles E. Burkhardt

By Charles E. Burkhardt

The learn of atomic physics propelled us into the quantum age within the early 20th century and carried us into the twenty-first century with a wealth of latest and, in certain cases, unexplained phenomena. Topics in Atomic Physics presents a origin for college kids to start examine in sleek atomic physics. it might probably additionally function a reference since it comprises fabric that's not simply positioned in different sources.

A distinguishing function is the thorough exposition of the quantum mechanical hydrogen atom utilizing either the normal formula and another remedy now not often present in textbooks. the choice remedy exploits the preeminent nature of the natural Coulomb capability and areas the Lenz vector operator on an equivalent footing with different operators comparable to classically conserved amounts. a few tough to discover proofs and derivations are incorporated as is improvement of operator formalism that enables facile resolution of the Stark influence in hydrogen.

Discussion of the classical hydrogen atom is usually offered. utilizing the correspondence precept this offers a transition from classical to quantum suggestions. it's also tailored to describing definite features of multi-electron atoms.

The ebook is meant for graduate scholars who've had introductory quantum mechanics, yet undergraduates who've had this kind of path may also reap the benefits of it. There are greater than 80 difficulties on the ends of chapters with all solutions given. a close ideas guide, occasionally giving a couple of answer, is offered to instructors.


Charles E. Burkhardt earned his Ph.D. in experimental atomic physics at Washington collage in St. Louis in 1985. he's Professor of Physics at Florissant Valley neighborhood collage in St. Louis. Jacob J. Leventhal earned his Ph.D. in experimental atomic physics on the collage of Florida in 1965. he's Curators' Professor on the college of Missouri – St. Louis. they've got collaborated on experimental atomic physics considering that 1980, publishing a number of papers in study and educating journals.

Isotope-Based Quantum Information by Vladimir G. Plekhanov

By Vladimir G. Plekhanov

The current booklet offers to the most rules and methods of the fast progressing box of quantum info and quantum computation utilizing isotope - combined fabrics. It begins with an advent to the isotope physics after which describes of the isotope - established quantum details and quantum computation. the facility to control and keep an eye on electron and/or nucleus spin in semiconductor units offers a brand new path to extend the features of inorganic semiconductor-based electronics and to layout cutting edge units with capability program in quantum computing. one of many significant demanding situations in the direction of those targets is to boost semiconductor-based platforms and architectures during which the spatial distribution of spins and their homes might be managed. for example, to do away with electron spin decoherence as a result of hyperfine interplay because of nuclear spin history, isotopically managed units are wanted (i.e., nuclear spin-depleted). In different rising ideas, the regulate of the spatial distribution of isotopes with nuclear spins is a prerequisite to enforce the quantum bits (or qbits). accordingly, sturdy semiconductor isotopes are vital components within the improvement of solid-state quantum info. There should not simply diverse algorithms of quantum computation mentioned but additionally the various versions of quantum desktops are offered. With quite a few illustrations this small ebook is of significant curiosity for undergraduate scholars taking classes in mesoscopic physics or nanoelectronics in addition to quantum details, and educational and commercial researches operating during this box.

The Nuclear Many-Body Problem by Ring, P. and Schuck, P.

By Ring, P. and Schuck, P.

This long-standing introductory textual content completely describes nuclear many-body concept, with an emphasis on method and the technical points of the theories which have been used to explain the nucleus. Now to be had in a cheaper softcover version, the unique contents of "The Nuclear Many-Body challenge” offered this is meant for college kids with easy wisdom of quantum mechanics and a few figuring out of nuclear phenomena. From the stories – "Its scope and complexity are appropriate for simple examining through starting scholars of nuclear conception. With a crisp and concise variety, the authors quick boost the shell-model method of the nuclear many-body challenge and as a consequence commit greater than a 3rd of the textual content to Hartree-Fock and comparable models...” - Physics this day

Ultracold Quantum Fields by Henk T. C. Stoof

By Henk T. C. Stoof

Ultracold Quantum Fields presents a self-contained advent to quantum box idea for many-particle structures, utilizing practical tools all through. the final concentration is at the behaviour of so-called quantum fluids, i.e., quantum gases and drinks, yet trapped atomic gases are constantly used for example. either equilibrium and non-equilibrium phenomena are thought of. to begin with, within the equilibrium case, definitely the right Hartree-Fock idea for the homes of a quantum fluid within the basic section is derived. the point of interest then turns to the houses within the superfluid part, and the authors current a microscopic derivation of the Bogoliubov idea of Bose-Einstein condensation and the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer concept of superconductivity. the previous is acceptable to trapped bosonic gases akin to rubidium, lithium, sodium and hydrogen, and the latter particularly to the fermionic isotope of atomic lithium. within the non-equilibrium case, a couple of themes are mentioned for which a field-theoretical strategy is mainly proper. Examples are the macroscopic quantum tunnelling of a Bose-Einstein condensate, the part dynamics of bosonic and fermionic superfluids, and their collisionless collective modes.

The booklet is predicated upon the notes for a lecture direction within the masters programme in Theoretical Physics at Utrecht.
