Elementary Quantum Mechanics

Author: David S. Saxon
Publisher: Courier Corporation
ISBN: 9780486310411
Release Date: 2013-07-24
Genre: Science

Based on lectures for an undergraduate UCLA course in quantum mechanics, this volume focuses on the formulas of quantum mechanics rather than applications. Widely used in both upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses, it offers a broad self-contained survey rather than in-depth treatments. Topics include the dual nature of matter and radiation, state functions and their interpretation, linear momentum, the motion of a free particle, Schrödinger's equation, approximation methods, angular momentum, and many other subjects. In the interests of keeping the mathematics as simple as possible, most of the book is confined to considerations of one-dimensional systems. A selection of 150 problems, many of which require prolonged study, amplify the text's teachings and an appendix contains solutions to 50 representative problems. This edition also includes a new Introduction by Joseph A. Rudnick and Robert Finkelstein.

Exactly Solved Models in Statistical Mechanics

Author: Rodney J. Baxter
Publisher: Courier Corporation
ISBN: 9780486318172
Release Date: 2013-07-02
Genre: Science

This text explores two-dimensional lattice models in statistical mechanics and illustrates methods for their solution. Comprehensive but concise, it indicates the routes between equations without superfluous details. Author R. J. Baxter is a fellow of the Royal Society of London and the Australian Academy of Science, as well as Emeritus Professor of the Mathematical Sciences Institute at Australian National University, Canberra. Professor Baxter has updated this edition with a new chapter covering recent developments. Starting with a survey of basic statistical mechanics, the treatment proceeds to examinations of the one-dimensional Ising model, the mean field model, the Ising model on the Bethe lattice, and the spherical model. Subsequent chapters address duality and star-triangle transforms of planar Ising models, the square-lattice Ising model, ice-type models, and the square lattice eight-vertex model. Additional topics include the Kagomé lattice eight-vertex model, Potts and Ashkin-Teller models, Corner transfer matrices, hard hexagon and related models, and elliptic functions. Seventy-six figures illuminate the text.

Non Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics

Author: Ilya Prigogine
Publisher: Courier Dover Publications
ISBN: 9780486820408
Release Date: 2017-02-27
Genre: Science

Ilya Prigogine won the 1977 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his contributions to non-equilibrium thermodynamics. This groundbreaking 1962 monograph, written for researchers and graduate students in this field, was his first book-length contribution to this subject. Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in physics and chemistry, the treatment begins with examinations of the Liouville equation, anharmonic solids, and Brownian motion. Subsequent chapters explore weakly coupled gases, scattering theory and short-range forces, distribution functions and their diagrammatic representation, the time dependence of diagrams, the approach to equilibrium in ionized gases, and statistical hydrodynamics. Additional topics include general kinetic equations, general H-theorem, quantum mechanics, and irreversibility and invariants of motion. Appendices, a bibliography, list of symbols, and an index conclude the text.
