By Bertrand Duplantier,Thomas C. Halsey,Vincent Rivasseau

This 10th quantity within the Poincaré Seminar sequence describes fresh advancements at some of the most hard frontiers in statistical physics - the deeply similar fields of glassy dynamics, specially close to the glass transition, and of the statics and dynamics of granular platforms. those fields are marked through a lively interchange among scan, idea, and numerical stories, all of that are good represented through the best specialists who've contributed articles to this quantity. those articles also are hugely pedagogical, as befits their beginning in lectures to a wide medical audience.  Highlights comprise a Galilean discussion at the suggest box and competing theories of the glass transition, a wide-ranging survey of colloidal glasses, and experimental in addition to theoretical remedies of the rather new box of dense granular flows. This e-book could be of huge common curiosity to either physicists and mathematicians.

Supergravity

Supergravity, including string thought, is without doubt one of the most important advancements in theoretical physics. Written by way of of the main revered employees within the box, this is often the first-ever authoritative and systematic account of supergravity. The booklet begins through reviewing elements of relativistic box idea in Minkowski spacetime.

Localization in Periodic Potentials: From Schrödinger Operators to the Gross–Pitaevskii Equation (London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series)

This e-book offers a finished remedy of the Gross–Pitaevskii equation with a periodic power; specifically, the localized modes supported by way of the periodic strength. It takes the mean-field version of the Bose–Einstein condensation because the start line of research and addresses the lifestyles and balance of localized modes.

Gravitation und Relativität: Eine Einführung in die Allgemeine Relativitätstheorie (De Gruyter Studium) (German Edition)

Die Relativitätstheorie gehört zu den bekanntesten Theorien der Physik. Auch wenn ihre unmittelbaren Auswirkungen auf unser tägliches Leben praktisch vernachlässigbar sind, geht von ihr dennoch eine große Faszination aus. Das vorliegende Buch bahnt physikalisch interessierten Lesern mit grundlegenden Kenntnissen der höheren Mathematik einen anschaulichen und nachvollziehbaren Weg zum Verständnis der Relativitätstheorie.
