A Physicist's View of Matter and Mind by Chandre Dharma-wardana

By Chandre Dharma-wardana

This is a hugely interdisciplinary ebook straddling physics and intricate structures akin to residing organisms. The presentation is from the point of view of physics, in a fashion obtainable to these drawn to clinical wisdom built-in inside of its socio-cultural and philosophical backgrounds. key parts of human knowing, particularly physics and awake advanced platforms, are offered in basic language. An not obligatory technical presentation is additionally given in parallel the place it really is needed.

Contents:

  • Part I. the character of actual Law:
    • A Bird's Eye View of Our Quest
    • An Epistemic Hunt for clinical Truth
    • The legislation of Nature and the Supremacy of Symmetry
    • Maxwell's Magical Trinity — electrical energy, Magnetism and Light
    • The thought of Relativity
    • The Quantum international and 'Reality'
    • Entanglement, size and Quantum Paradoxes
    • Many Particle platforms and the Classical Limit
    • Energy, Entropy and Emergent Properties
  • Part II. advanced platforms and Consiousness:
    • Bio-Molecules, the Sub-Slime of Astrochemistry
    • The mobilephone because the easy Unit of Life
    • Specialized Cells for Sight, perception, and Information
    • Exotic, Quantum reasons of Consciousness
    • Addressing the Enigmatic Questions

Readership: normal viewers with curiosity in physics and intricate structures biology in addition to technological know-how academics.

Simple Models of Many-Fermion Systems

The aim of this publication is to supply a pedestrians path to the physics of many-particle platforms. the cloth is built alongside basic and frequent versions which permit to light up the elemental mechanisms past every one procedure and which practice to huge number of platforms in numerous parts of physics and chemistry.

Rotations, Quaternions, and Double Groups (Dover Books on Mathematics)

This article provides a constant description of the geometric and quaternionic remedy of rotation operators. Covers the basics of symmetries, matrices, and teams and provides a primer on rotations and rotation matrices. additionally explores rotations and angular momentum, tensor bases, the bilinear transformation, projective representations, extra.

The Imagineer's Chronicles Vol. 5 – 2014: A Journey through Four Spatial Dimensions

Are you interested in how and why the universe of the large and small behave the way in which they do? have you ever even questioned why good judgment doesn't practice to the quantum mechanical global of subatomic debris or how three-d area may be present process a spatial growth in universe which include purely 4 dimensional space-time?

Interferometry with Interacting Bose-Einstein Condensates in a Double-Well Potential (Springer Theses)

This thesis demonstrates an entire Mach–Zehnder interferometer with interacting Bose–Einstein condensates restricted on an atom chip. It is dependent upon the coherent manipulation of atoms trapped in a magnetic double-well capability, for which the writer built a unique form of beam splitter. Particle-wave duality allows the development of interferometers for subject waves, which enhance optical interferometers in precision size units, either for technological functions and primary checks.
