Julian Schwinger Centennial Conference: Proceedings of the Julian Schwinger Centennial Conference Julian Schwinger Centennial Conference National University of Singapore, 7 – 12 February 2018 

The Julian Schwinger Centennial Conference of 2018 assembled many of Schwinger’s students, colleagues, and friends to celebrate this towering figure of twentieth century physics one hundred years after his birth. This proceedings volume collects talks delivered on this occasion. They cover a wide range of…

Non-perturbative Renormalization Group Approach to Some Out-of-Equilibrium Systems: Diffusive Epidemic Process and Fully Developed Turbulence (Springer Theses) 

This thesis presents the application of non-perturbative, or functional, renormalization group to study the physics of critical stationary states in systems out-of-equilibrium. Two different systems are thereby studied. The first system is the diffusive epidemic process, a stochastic process which models the propagation of an…

Introduction to the Mathematical Structure of Quantum Mechanics, An: A Short Course for Mathematicians (2nd Edition) (Advanced Series in Mathematical Physics) Ed 2 

The second printing contains a critical discussion of Dirac derivation of canonical quantization, which is instead deduced from general geometric structures. This book arises out of the need for Quantum Mechanics (QM) to be part of the common education of mathematics students. The mathematical structure…

Theory and Simulation Methods for Electronic and Phononic Transport in Thermoelectric Materials (SpringerBriefs in Physics) 

This book introduces readers to state-of-the-art theoretical and simulation techniques for determining transport in complex band structure materials and nanostructured-geometry materials, linking the techniques developed by the electronic transport community to the materials science community. Starting from the semi-classical Boltzmann Transport Equation method for complex…

Advanced Quantum Mechanics 

Renowned physicist and mathematician Freeman Dyson is famous for his work in quantum mechanics, nuclear weapons policy and bold visions for the future of humanity. In the 1940s, he was responsible for demonstrating the equivalence of the two formulations of quantum electrodynamics Richard Feynman’s diagrammatic…
