Szegő's theorem and its descendants : spectral theory for L² perturbations of orthogonal polynomials by Barry Simon( )

27 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a comprehensive overview of the sum rule approach to spectral analysis of orthogonal polynomials, which derives from Gábor Szego's classic 1915 theorem and its 1920 extension. Barry Simon emphasizes necessary and sufficient conditions, and provides mathematical background that until now has been available only in journals. Topics include background from the theory of meromorphic functions on hyperelliptic surfaces and the study of covering maps of the Riemann sphere with a finite number of slits removed. This allows for the first book-length treatment of orthogonal polynomials for measures supported on a finite number of intervals on the real line. In addition to the Szego and Killip-Simon theorems for orthogonal polynomials on the unit circle (OPUC) and orthogonal polynomials on the real line (OPRL), Simon covers Toda lattices, the moment problem, and Jacobi operators on the Bethe lattice. Recent work on applications of universality of the CD kernel to obtain detailed asymptotics on the fine structure of the zeros is also included. The book places special emphasis on OPRL, which makes it the essential companion volume to the author's earlier books on OPUC
Quantum mechanics for Hamiltonians defined as quadratic forms by Barry Simon( )

27 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in English and held by 1,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is our purpose in this monograph to present a complete, rigorous mathematical treatment of two body quantum mechanics for a wider class of potentials than is normally treated in the literature. work: At the same time, we will review the theory of the "usual" Kato classes, although no at Ư tempt has been made to make this review exhaustive or complete. The scope of what we present is best delineated by stating the limits of this we take for granted the standard Hilbert space formalism, and our main goal is to prove forward dispersion relations from first principles. For example we do not assume the Lippman-Schwinger equation but prove it within the framework of time-dependent scattering theory."--Introduction
Methods of modern mathematical physics by Michael Reed( Book )

64 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first of a multivolume series devoted to an exposition of functional analysis methods in modern mathematical physics. It describes the fundamental principles of functional analysis and is essentially self-contained, although there are occasional references to later volumes. We have included a few applications when we thought that they would provide motivation for the reader. Later volumes describe various advanced topics in functional analysis and give numerous applications in classical physics, modern physics, and partial differential equations." --Publisher description

Convexity : an analytic viewpoint by Barry Simon( )

26 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Convexity of sets and functions are extremely simple notions to define, so it may be somewhat surprising the depth and breadth of ideas that these notions give rise to. It turns out that convexity is central to a vast number of applied areas, including Statistical Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Mathematical Economics, and Statistics, and that many inequalities, including Hölder's and Minkowski's inequalities, are related to convexity. An introductory chapter (1) includes a study of regularity properties of convex functions, some inequalities (Hölder, Minkowski, and Jensen), the Hahn-Banach theorem as a statement about extending tangents to convex functions, and the introduction of two constructions that will play major roles later in this book: the Minkowski gauge of a convex set and the Legendre transform of a function"--

Schrödinger operators, with applications to quantum mechanics and global geometry by H. L Cycon( Book )

14 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in English and Russian and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A complete understanding of Schrödinger operators is a necessary prerequisite for unveiling the physics of nonrelativistic quanturn mechanics. Furthermore recent research shows that it also helps to deepen our insight into global differential geometry. This monograph written for both graduate students and researchers summarizes and synthesizes the theory of Schrödinger operators emphasizing the progress made in the last decade by Lieb, Enss, Witten and others. Besides general properties, the book covers, in particular, multiparticle quantum mechanics including bound states of Coulomb systems and scattering theory, quantum mechanics in constant electric and magnetic fields, Schrödinger operators with random and almost periodic potentials and, finally, Schrödinger operator methods in differential geometry to prove the Morse inequalities and the index theorem
Orthogonal polynomials on the unit circle by Barry Simon( Book )

24 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-part book is a comprehensive overview of the theory of probability measures on the unit circle, viewed especially in terms of the orthogonal polynomials defined by those measures. A major theme involves the connections between the Verblunsky coefficients (the coefficients of the recurrence equation for the orthogonal polynomials) and the measures, an analog of the spectral theory of one-dimensional Schrödinger operators. Among the topics discussed along the way are the asymptotics of Toeplitz determinants (Szegő's theorems), limit theorems for the density of the zeros of orthogonal polynomials, matrix representations for multiplication by z (CMV matrices), periodic Verblunsky coefficients from the point of view of meromorphic functions on hyperelliptic surfaces, and connections between the theories of orthogonal polynomials on the unit circle and on the real line

Multiparticle quantum scattering with applications to nuclear, atomic, and molecular physics by Donald G Truhlar( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topics in this volume include the ideas of mathematicians, physicists and chemists in the area of multiparticle scattering theory. Scattering theory (or collision theory as it is often called) is a fundamental area of theory and computation in both physics and chemistry. The correct formulation of scattering theory for two-body collisions is now well worked out, but systems with three or more particles still present fundamental unmet challenges, both in the formulations of the problem and in the interpretation of computational results. A key issue in the mathematical foundations is asymptotic completeness, which says that any state of a quantum system is a superposition of bound and scattering states. Key issues on the physical side are concerned with boundary conditions, electromagnetic fields, effective potentials and resonances

63 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Methods of Modern Mathematical Physics, Volume I: Functional Analysis discusses the fundamental principles of functional analysis in modern mathematical physics. This book also analyzes the influence of mathematics on physics, such as the Newtonian mechanics used to interpret all physical phenomena. Organized into eight chapters, this volume starts with an overview of the functional analysis in the study of several concrete models. This book then discusses how to generalize the Lebesgue integral to work with functions on the real line and with Borel sets. This text also explores the proper
Trace ideals and their applications by Barry Simon( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a second edition of a well-known book on the theory of trace ideals in the algebra of operators in a Hilbert space. Because of the theory's many different applications, the book was widely used and much in demand. For this second edition, the author has added four chapters on the closely related theory of rank one perturbations of self-adjoint operators. He has also included a comprehensive index and an addendum describing some developments since the original notes were published."--BOOK JACKET
