An creation to Tensors and workforce idea for Physicists presents either an intuitive and rigorous method of tensors and teams and their function in theoretical physics and utilized arithmetic. a specific 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 regularly occurring in physics calculations with the summary yet extra conceptual formula present in many mathematical texts, the paintings should 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.

Creation to Quantum Mechanics is an creation to the ability and style of quantum mechanics. Assuming little within the approach of earlier wisdom, quantum suggestions are rigorously and accurately provided, and explored via a number of purposes and difficulties. many of the tougher points which are crucial for a contemporary appreciation of the topic were incorporated, yet are brought and constructed within the easiest way attainable.
Many scholars locate quantum mechanics conceptually tricky after they first come upon the topic. during this publication, the postulates and key functions of quantum mechanics are good illustrated through a gently selected set of difficulties, whole with specific, step by step ideas. starting with a bankruptcy on orders of value, quite a few themes are then coated, together with the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics, Schrödinger's equation, angular momentum, the hydrogen atom, the harmonic oscillator, spin, time-independent and time-dependent perturbation idea, the variational procedure, multielectron atoms, transitions and scattering.
Trajectory-based formalisms are an intuitively beautiful method of describing quantum techniques simply because they permit using "classical" strategies. starting as an introductory point compatible for college kids, this two-volume monograph provides (1) the basics and (2) the purposes of the trajectory description of easy quantum tactics.
Quantity 2 of the 5-volume Quantum Nanochemistry offers in a balanced demeanour the elemental and complicated techniques, rules, and types in addition to their first and novel combos and purposes in quantum (physical) and chemical concept of atomic constitution. It exposes the atom’s point of view of quantum constructions, spanning its assorted analytical predictions via ancient and in-depth quantum research of the atomic periodicities of the atomic radii, ionization power, electron affinity, electronegativity, and chemical hardness, besides the lately consecrated electrophilicity and chemical action—as the most worldwide reactivity indices are assessed whilst subsequent judging the chemical reactivity via their affiliate rules.
