An Introduction to Tensors and Group Theory for Physicists by Nadir Jeevanjee

By Nadir Jeevanjee

An creation to Tensors and crew concept for Physicists offers either an intuitive and rigorous method of tensors and teams and their function in theoretical physics and utilized arithmetic. a selected goal is to demystify tensors and supply a unified framework for realizing them within the context of classical and quantum physics. Connecting the part formalism widespread in physics calculations with the summary yet extra conceptual formula present in many mathematical texts, the paintings could be a welcome boost to the literature on tensors and team theory. Advanced undergraduate and graduate scholars in physics and utilized arithmetic will locate readability and perception into the topic during this textbook.

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

Are you interested in how and why the universe of the massive and small behave the best way they do? have you ever even questioned why good judgment doesn't follow to the quantum mechanical international of subatomic debris or how three-d house should be present process a spatial growth in universe inclusive of basically 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 will depend on the coherent manipulation of atoms trapped in a magnetic double-well strength, for which the writer built a unique form of beam splitter. Particle-wave duality permits the development of interferometers for topic waves, which enhance optical interferometers in precision size units, either for technological functions and basic assessments.
