Nonlinear Water Waves
ISBN: 9780122084379 / Angielski / Twarda / 544 str. Wave motion in water is one of the most striking observable phenomena in nature. Throughout the twentieth century, development of the linearized theory of wave motion in fluids and hydrodynamic stability has been steady and significant. In the last three decades there have been remarkable developments in nonlinear dispersive waves in general, nonlinear water waves in particular, and nonlinear instability phenomena. New solutions are now available for waves modulatedin both space and time, which exhibit new phenomena as diverse as solitons, resonant interactions, sideband instability, and...

III: Scattering Theory
ISBN: 9780125850032 / Angielski / Twarda / 463 str. Scattering theory is the study of an interacting system on a scale of time and/or distance which is large compared to the scale of the interaction itself. As such, it is the most effective means, sometimes the only means, to study microscopic nature. To understand the importance of scattering theory, consider the variety of ways in which it arises. First, there are various phenomena in nature (like the blue of the sky) which are the result of scattering. In order to understand the phenomenon (and to identify it as the result of scattering) one must understand the underlying dynamics and its...

Quantum Field Theory and Critical Phenomena
ISBN: 9780198509233 / Angielski / Twarda / 1074 str. The book is an introduction to quantum field theory and renormalization group. It shows that these frameworks are essential for the understanding of phenomena belonging to many different areas of physics, which range from phase transitions in macroscopic systems to the theory of fundamental interactions. This advanced new edition is based on graduate courses and summer schools given by the author over a number of years. Although there are several good textbooks on QFT, this is the first to emphasize the common aspects of particle physics and the theory of critical phenomena in a unified...

From Nonlinearity to Coherence: Universal Features of NonLinear Behaviour in ManyBody Physics
ISBN: 9780198539728 / Angielski / Twarda / 624 str. Nonlinear physics has grown from a collection of exotic examples of nonstandard behavior to an allembracing scientific methodology. Many examples come from condensed matter physics. This book presents a unified view of manybody condensed matter systems as essentially nonlinear structures capable of exhibiting such features as chaos, coherence, solution formation and phase transitions. The book provides an overview of nonlinear phenomena in science, introduces phase transitions and criticality, and includes a comprehensive exposition of methods and results in the analysis of nonlinear...

Geometry of Electromagnetic Systems
ISBN: 9780198591870 / Angielski / Twarda / 256 str. This book examines the close relationship between the physical phenomena of electromagnetism and the geometry of space and time. It starts with the FaradayMaxwell insight that in electromagnetism exists an interconnected dynamical system in which space and time are closely linked with the physical phenomena. An appropriate mathematical basis is given by differential geometry to describe local relationships and topology to describe the system. These tools are introduced in the context of Maxwell's equations in the familiar vector notation, which are greatly simplified by the geometrical...

Quantum Field Theo Point Particle
ISBN: 9780201360790 / Angielski / Miękka / 756 str. The purpose of this book is to introduce string theory without assuming any background in quantum field theory. Part I of this book follows the development of quantum field theory for point particles, while Part II introduces strings. All of the tools and concepts that are needed to quantize strings are developed first for point particles. Thus, Part I presents the main framework of quantum field theory and provides for a coherent development of the generalization and application of quantum field theory for point particles to strings.Part II emphasizes the quantization of the bosonic string....

Gravitation and Modern Cosmology: The Cosmological Constants Problem
ISBN: 9780306440540 / Angielski / Twarda / 228 str. Peter Gabriel Bergmann started his work on general relativity in 1936 when he moved from Prague to the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. Bergmann collaborated with Einstein in an attempt to provide a geometrical unified field theory of gravitation and electromagnetism. Within this program they wrote two articles together: A. Einstein and P. G. Bergmann, Ann. Math. 39, 685 (1938); and A. Einstein, V. Bargmann and P. G. Bergmann, Th. von Karman Anniversary Volume 212 (1941). The search for such a theory was intense in the ten years following the birth of general relativity. In recent...

LowDimensional Topology and Quantum Field Theory
ISBN: 9780306445781 / Angielski / Twarda / 324 str. The motivations, goals and general culture of theoretical physics and mathematics are different. Most practitioners of either discipline have no necessity for most of the time to keep abreast of the latest developments in the other. However on occasion newly developed mathematical concepts become relevant in theoretical physics and the less rigorous theoretical physics framework may prove valuable in understanding and suggesting new theorems and approaches in pure mathematics. Such interdis ciplinary successes invariably cause much rejoicing, as over a prodigal son returned. In recent years...

Optimization Methods in Electromagnetic Radiation
ISBN: 9780387204505 / Angielski / Twarda / 331 str. The subject of antenna design, primarily a discipline within electrical en neering, is devoted to the manipulation of structural elements of and/or the electrical currents present on a physical object capable of supporting such a current. Almost as soon as one begins to look at the subject, it becomes clear that there are interesting mathematical problems which need to be addressed, in the ?rst instance, simply for the accurate modelling of the electromagnetic ?elds produced by an antenna. The description of the electromagnetic ?elds depends on the physical structure and the background...

The school featured lectures by ten speakers, and was attended by nearly 70 students from over 14 countries. A primary goal was to foster interaction and communication between participants from different cultures, both in the layman s sense of the term and in terms of approaches to quantum gravity. We hope that the links formed by students and the school will persist throughout their professional lives, continuing to promote...

Nonlocal Continuum Field Theories
ISBN: 9780387952758 / Angielski / Twarda / 376 str. Nonlocal continuum field theories are concerned with material bodies whose behavior at any interior point depends on the state of all other points in the body  rather than only on an effective field resulting from these points  in addition to its own state and the state of some calculable external field. Nonlocal field theory extends classical field theory by describing the responses of points within the medium by functionals rather than functions (the "constitutive relations" of classical field theory). Such considerations are already well known in solidstate physics, where the nonlocal...

Spectral and Scattering Theory for Wave Propagation in Perturbed Stratified Media
ISBN: 9780387973579 / Angielski / Twarda / 190 str. The propagation of acoustic and electromagnetic waves in stratified media is a subject that has profound implications in many areas of applied physics and in engineering, just to mention a few, in ocean acoustics, integrated optics, and wave guides. See for example Tolstoy and Clay 1966, Marcuse 1974, and Brekhovskikh 1980. As is well known, stratified media, that is to say media whose physical properties depend on a single coordinate, can produce guided waves that propagate in directions orthogonal to that of stratification, in addition to the free waves that propagate as in homogeneous...
