|Interacting Electrons and Quantum Magnetism (Graduate Texts in Contemporary Physics)
Lowest new price: $61.67
Lowest used price: $64.95
List price: $84.95
Author: Assa Auerbach
This book emphasizes the role that electron interactions play in the properties of condensed matter. It teaches the use of the powerful nonperturbative techniques that have become available in the last decades to discuss such topics as mixed valence systems, Kondo systems, heavy electrons, high-temperature copper oxide superconductors, the quantum Hall effect, and low-dimensional isotropic magnets. Mathematical derivations are self contained. Appendices provide standard many-body tools including second quantization, Grassmann variables, generating functionals, linear response, correlation functions, Fermi and Bose coherent-states path integrals, Matsubara representation, and the method of steepest descents. There are guided bibliographies and exercises at the end of each chapter.
|Charge and Energy Transfer Dynamics in Molecular Systems
Lowest new price: $188.10
Lowest used price: $155.99
List price: $205.00
Author: Volkhard May
This 3rd edition has been expanded and updated to account for recent developments, while new illustrative examples as well as an enlarged reference list have also been added. It naturally retains the successful concept of its predecessors in presenting a unified perspective on molecular charge and energy transfer processes, thus bridging the regimes of coherent and dissipative dynamics, and establishing a connection between classic rate theories and modern treatments of ultrafast phenomena.
Among the new topics are:
- Time-dependent density functional theory
- Heterogeneous electron transfer, e.g. between molecules and metal or semiconductor surfaces
- Current flows through a single molecule.
While serving as an introduction for graduate students and researchers, this is equally must-have reading for theoreticians and experimentalists, as well as an aid to interpreting experimental data and accessing the original literature.

|The Electron: New Theory and Experiment (Fundamental Theories of Physics)

List price: $259.00
The stupendous successes of the Dirac equation and quantum electrodynamics have established the electron as the most well understood of the fundamental constituents of matter. Nevertheless, physicists agree that the electron still has secrets to reveal. Moreover, powerful new theoretical and experimental tools for probing those secrets have been sharpened during the last decade. The 1990 Electron Workshop was organized to bring theorists and experimentalists together to discuss their common goal of knowing the electron. These Proceedings describe the present state and future prospects for progress toward that goal. The Electron presents the latest theoretical and experimental work seeking to probe the as yet undiscovered secrets of this particle. The theoretical papers encompass a wide range of views on the electron. Several argue that the zitterbewegung is more than a mathematical peculiarity of the Dirac equation, that it may well be a real physical phenomenon and so worthy of serious study both theoretically and experimentally. Besides generating the electron spin and magnetic moment, the zitterbewegung may be a vital clue to electron structure and self-interaction. Some of the papers employ a radical new formulation of the Dirac theory which reveals a hidden geometric structure in the theory that supports a zitterbewegung interpretation.

|Electron: A Centenary Volume
Lowest new price: $63.47
Lowest used price: $75.16
List price: $75.00
This book marks the centenary of the discovery of the electron by J.J. Thomson in 1897, one of the great turning points in the history of scientific ideas. In this book the discussion moves from the historical context of the discovery of the electron and its basic properties, to the Dirac equation, bonding in condensed matter, Fermi and non-Fermi liquids, quantum order, superconductivity, heavy, coherent and composite electrons, and the role of the electron in the cosmos, with each chapter being written by a leading figure in the field.
|Density-Functional Theory of Atoms and Molecules (International Series of Monographs on Chemistry)
Lowest new price: $117.97
Lowest used price: $74.00
List price: $150.00
Author: Robert G. Parr
This book is a rigorous, unified account of the fundamental principles of the density-functional theory of the electronic structure of matter and its applications to atoms and molecules. Containing a detailed discussion of the chemical potential and its derivatives, it provides an understanding of the concepts of electronegativity, hardness and softness, and chemical reactivity. Both the Hohenberg-Kohn-Sham and the Levy-Lieb derivations of the basic theorems are presented, and extensive references to the literature are included. Two introductory chapters and several appendices provide all the background material necessary beyond a knowledge of elementary quantum theory. The book is intended for physicists, chemists, and advanced students in chemistry.
|Electrons in Solids, Third Edition: An Introductory Survey

Author: Richard H. Bube
This Third Edition of ELECTRONS IN SOLIDS: AN INTRODUCTORY SURVEY, is the result of a thorough re-examination of the entire text, incorporating suggestions and corrections by students and professors who have used the text. Explanations and descriptions have been expanded, and additional information has been added on high Tc superconductors, diamond films, "buckminsterfullerenes," and thin magnetic materials. Adopted by many colleges and universities, this text has proven to be a solid introduction to the electrical, optical and magnetic properties of materials.
* Contains comprehensive coverage of electronic properties in metals, semiconductors, and insulators at a fundamental level
* Stresses the use of wave properties as an integrating theme for the discussion of phonons, photons, and electrons
* Includes a complete set of illustrative problems along with exercises and answers
* Features a careful indication of both Gaussian and SI unit systems
|Positron Beams And Their Applications
Lowest new price: $113.80
Lowest used price: $2,659.15
List price: $121.00
Author: Paul Coleman
This book provides a coherent and comprehensive overview of the generation and application of mono-energetic positron beams. It has been written by acknowledged experts, at a level accessible to graduate students working, or planning to work, with positron beams, and to scientists in other areas who want to know something about the field. The book begins with a brief historical introduction and an overview of how positron beams are generated and transported. A description of the fate of slow positrons in gaseous and condensed matter, with reference to many of the fundamental measurements made possible by the advent of positron beams, is followed by a discussion on applications in the study of solid surfaces, defect profiling in subsurface regions, interfaces and thin films, and the probing of bulk properties in novel ways. The book ends with a look at the future, considering the prospects for intense positron beams and their potential for further research.
