By Igor Herbut

serious phenomena is without doubt one of the most fun components of recent physics. This 2007 booklet offers an intensive yet fiscal creation into the rules and strategies of the speculation of severe phenomena and the renormalization staff, from the point of view of recent condensed subject physics. Assuming uncomplicated wisdom of quantum and statistical mechanics, the booklet discusses part transitions in magnets, superfluids, superconductors, and gauge box theories. specific recognition is given to subject matters reminiscent of gauge box fluctuations in superconductors, the Kosterlitz-Thouless transition, duality variations, and quantum section transitions - all of that are on the leading edge of physics study. This e-book comprises various difficulties of various levels of hassle, with recommendations. those difficulties supply readers with a wealth of fabric to check their knowing of the topic. it really is perfect for graduate scholars and more matured researchers within the fields of condensed subject physics, statistical physics, and many-body physics.

The Language of Physics: The Calculus and the Development of Theoretical Physics in Europe, 1750–1914

This paintings is the 1st particular exam of the major function that arithmetic has performed within the improvement of theoretical physics and should certainly problem the extra traditional money owed of its ancient improvement. even if arithmetic has lengthy been considered as the "language" of physics, the connections among those autonomous disciplines were way more advanced and intimate than earlier narratives have proven.

Mathematics for Physics: A Guided Tour for Graduate Students

An engagingly-written account of mathematical instruments and concepts, this publication offers a graduate-level creation to the math utilized in study in physics. the 1st half the booklet specializes in the conventional mathematical equipment of physics – differential and necessary equations, Fourier sequence and the calculus of diversifications.

Theory of Linear Physical Systems: Theory of physical systems from the viewpoint of classical dynamics, including Fourier methods (Dover Books on Physics)

An eminent electric engineer and authority on linear process idea takes upper-level undergraduates and graduate scholars past the common introductory circuits path, delivering them with extra history for knowing complicated community synthesis. This refined treatise broadens scholars' realizing of the topological and algebraic kinfolk for constructing equilibrium equations and adjustments among units of variables.

Turbulence in Magnetohydrodynamics (De Gruyter Studies in Mathematical Physics)

Magnetohydrodynamics describes dynamics in electrically conductive fluids. those ensue in our surroundings in addition to in our surroundings and magnetosphere, and play a job within the sun's interplay with our planet. often those phenomena contain turbulences, and hence are very hard to appreciate and calculate.
