Perturbative and Non-perturbative Approaches to String Sigma-Models in AdS/CFT

Perturbative and Non-perturbative Approaches to String Sigma-Models in AdS/CFT By Dr. Edoardo Vescovi
English | PDF | 2017 | 246 Pages | ISBN : 3319634194 | 5.56 MB

This thesis introduces readers to the type II superstring theories in the AdS5×S5 and AdS4×CP3 backgrounds. Each chapter exemplifies a different computational approach to measuring observables (conformal dimensions of single-trace operators and expectation values of Wilson loop operators) relevant for two supersymmetric theories: the N=4 super Yang-Mills theory and the N=6 Chern-Simons-matter (ABJM) theory.

Statistical Physics for Electrical Engineering

Statistical Physics for Electrical Engineering By Prof. Neri Merhav
English | PDF | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 143 Pages | ISBN : 3319620622 | 2.33 MB

The main body of this book is devoted to statistical physics, whereas much less emphasis is given to thermodynamics. In particular, the idea is to present the most important outcomes of thermodynamics – most notably, the laws of thermodynamics – as conclusions from derivations in statistical physics.

Foundations of Quantum Mechanics: An Exploration of the Physical Meaning of Quantum Theory By Dr. Travis Norsen
English | PDF | 2017 | 316 Pages | ISBN : 3319658662 | 4.99 MB

Authored by an acclaimed teacher of quantum physics and philosophy, this textbook pays special attention to the aspects that many courses sweep under the carpet. Traditional courses in quantum mechanics teach students how to use the quantum formalism to make calculations. But even the best students - indeed, especially the best students - emerge rather confused about what, exactly, the theory says is going on, physically, in microscopic systems.
