Phillips Computing for Scientists R. J. Barlow and A. R. Barnett Quantum Mechanics aims to teach those parts of the subject which every physicist should know. The object is to display the inherent structure of quantum mechanics, concentrating on general principles and on methods of wide applicability without taking them to their full generality. This book will equip students to follow quantum-mechanical arguments in books and scientific papers, and to cope with simple cases. To bring the subject to life, the theory is applied to the all-important field of atomic physics. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics is assumed. However, it would help most readers to have met some elementary wave mechanics before. Primarily written for students, it should also be of interest to experimental research workers who require a good grasp of quantum mechanics without the full formalism needed by the professional theorist. Quantum Mechanics features: A flow diagram allowing topics to be studied in different orders or omitted altogether. Optional "starred" and highlighted sections containing more advanced and specialized material for the more ambitious reader. Sets of problems at the end of each chapter to help student understanding. Hints and solutions to the problems are given at the end of the book.

Prominence is given to the Gibbs distribution, leading to a simple treatment of quantum statistics and of chemical reactions. Undergraduate students of physics and related sciences will find this a stimulating account of the basic physics and its applications. Only an elementary knowledge of kinetic theory and atomic physics, as well as the rudiments of quantum theory, are presupposed for an understanding of this book. Statistical Physics, Second Edition features: A fully integrated treatment of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. A flow diagram allowing topics to be studied in different orders or omitted altogether. Optional "starred" and highlighted sections containing more advanced and specialised material for the more ambitious reader. Sets of problems at the end of each chapter to help student understanding.

Warum ist E mc2

Author: Brian Cox

ISBN: 9783440152065

Genre: Science

E = mc2 ist die berühmteste Formel der Welt. Mit ihr brachte Einstein es auf den Punkt: Energie und Masse sind zwei Seiten derselben Medaille und die Lichtgeschwindigkeit c ist ihr Wechselkurs. Doch warum besteht dieses so einfache Verhältnis? Wie ist Albert Einstein zu diesem Schluss gekommen? Und welche Folgen für das Verständnis des Universums ergeben sich daraus? Brian Cox, Professor für Physik und in England durch seine Sendungen auf BBC sehr bekannt, hat sich zusammen mit seinem Kollegen Jeff Forshaw, Professor für theoretische Physik, die scheinbar einfache Einstein-Gleichung vorgenommen, um sie mit viel Energie ausführlich und verständlich zu erklären.

Alice im Quantenland

Author: Robert Gilmore
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783322850096
Release Date: 2013-07-01
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Alice sitzt gelangweilt vor dem Fernseher; da fällt ihr Blick auf "Alice im Wunderland", das sie kürzlich gelesen hat. Sie sehnt sich danach, vergleichbare Abenteuer zu erleben, stürzt und fällt in Ohnmacht. In ihrem Traum fällt sie durch den Bildschirm hindurch, wo sie - verkleinert - auf die Elektronen trifft, die als Strahl den Bildschirm zum Leuchten bringen. Das ist erst der Anfang der Geschichte, in der Alice nach und nach die Besonderheiten der Quantenwelt kennenlernt. Sie begegnet Menschen wie Niels Bohr, die sie unter ihre Fittiche nehmen, und steht mit Elektronen und Quarks auf du und du. In dieser neuen Form der Geschichte von Alice beschreibt Robert Gilmore - selbst angesehener Physiker - kenntnisreich und amüsant, welche Besonderheiten uns die Welt der Elektronen und Quarks bietet. Schließlich wird Alice (und damit den Lesern) klargemacht, daß nach 70 Jahren der Forschung auf diesem Gebiet ungelöste Fragen an die Grundlagen der Quantentheorie übriggeblieben sind, die vielleicht nie gelöst werden können. Rezension erschienen in: junge wissenschaft Ausgabe / Band 12Jg., Heft 45, S. 60f Feb. 97 (...) ist es dem Autor in hervorragender Weise gelungen, eine didaktisch äußerst wertvolle Darstellung der Quantenmechanik zu präsentieren(...) (...)erreicht damit einen wesentlich größerenLeserkreis(...) (...)sehr abgerundetes Bild der Quantenphysik(...) (...)in sehr geschickter Weise(...) (...)in sehr prägnanter Form, jedoch in fachlicher Hinsicht völlig korrekt(...) (...)Als besonders gelungen darf man die Übersetzung aus dem englischen Original bezeichnen(...) (...)Sehr lobenswert erwähnt werden muß wohl auch die vom deutschen Übersetzer vorgenommene Aktualisierung beim inzwischen gelungenen Nachweis des top-Quark am Fermilab(...) (...)Der rezensent ist davon überzeugt, daß auch der versierte Physiker dieses Buch mit großem Genuß lesen muß(...)

Release Date: 2012-10-24
Genre: Science

Dank sich stets verbessernder boden- und weltraumgestützter Teleskope stehen der Kosmologie inzwischen Daten zur Verfügung, die Rückschlüsse auf immer frühere Phasen des Universums und Vergleiche mit Modellvorstellungen erlauben. Daher gewinnt die Kosmologie in den Astronomiekursen der Universitäten beständig an Wichtigkeit. Die "Einführung in die Moderne Kosmologie" ist eine anschauliche und leicht verständliche Darstellung moderner kosmologischer Konzepte, die neben zahlreichen Beispielen und Übungsaufgaben auch Hinweise und Endergebnisse enthält, sodass das Erlernte sofort ausprobiert und kontrolliert werden kann. Das Buch ist klar eingeteilt und behandelt in sechs separaten Kapiteln Themen für Fortgeschrittene, darunter relativistische Kosmologie und Neutrino-Kosmologie. Die vorliegende Übersetzung der zweiten Auflage wurde wesentlich ergänzt und erweitert und umfasst neueste Beobachtungsergebnisse sowie zusätzliches Material zur empirischen Kosmologie und Strukturbildung.

Chemical Concepts from Quantum Mechanics

Author: Philip Earis
Publisher:
ISBN: 0854049584
Release Date: 2007-01-01
Genre: Quantum chemistry

Extracting chemical information from modern wave functions and from experimental high-resolution electron densities is a challenging but valuable task. Many chemical concepts have been introduced at an intuitive level, often in the distant past, and hence need to be continuously confronted and scrutinised against a wealth of data obtained from modern computer calculations and increasingly automated X-ray equipment. This new book looks at the issues involved in bridging the expanding gap between widely used chemical concepts and modern accurate physical and computational data on molecules. It offers a valuable insight into research and opinion regarding this topic. Faraday Discussions document a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussion volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned.

Phillips Computing for Scientists R. J. Barlow and A. R. Barnett Written by a physicist, Statistics is tailored to the needs of physical scientists, containing and explaining all they need to know. It concentrates on parameter estimation, especially the methods of Least Squares and Maximum Likelihood, but other techniques, such as hypothesis testing, Bayesian statistics and non-parametric methods are also included. Intended for reasonably numerate scientists it contains all the basic formulae, their derivations and applications, together with some more advanced ones. Statistics features: * Comprehensive coverage of the essential techniques physical scientists are likely to need. * A wealth of examples, and problems with their answers. * Flexible structure and organisation allows it to be used as a course text and a reference. * A review of the basics, so that little prior knowledge is required.
