The concept of phase space plays a decisive role in the study of the transition from classical to quantum physics. This is particularly the case in areas such as nonlinear dynamics and chaos, geometric quantization and the study of the various semiclassical theories, which are the setting of the present volume. Much of the content is devoted to the study of the Wigner distribution. This volume gives the first complete survey of the progress made by both mathematicians and physicists. It will serve as an excellent reference for further research

Theory and applications of the Poincaré group by

12 editions published between 1986 and 2000 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Special relativity and quantum mechanics, formulated early in the twentieth century, are the two most important scientific languages and are likely to remain so for many years to come. In the 1920's, when quantum mechanics was developed, the most pressing theoretical problem was how to make it consistent with special relativity. In the 1980's, this is still the most pressing problem. The only difference is that the situation is more urgent now than before, because of the significant quantity of experimental data which need to be explained in terms of both quantum mechanics and special relativity. In unifying the concepts and algorithms of quantum mechanics and special relativity, it is important to realize that the underlying scientific language for both disciplines is that of group theory. The role of group theory in quantum mechanics is well known. The same is true for special relativity. Therefore, the most effective approach to the problem of unifying these two important theories is to develop a group theory which can accommodate both special relativity and quantum mechanics. As is well known, Eugene P. Wigner is one of the pioneers in developing group theoretical approaches to relativistic quantum mechanics. His 1939 paper on the inhomogeneous Lorentz group laid the foundation for this important research line. It is generally agreed that this paper was somewhat ahead of its time in 1939, and that contemporary physicists must continue to make real efforts to appreciate fully the content of this classic work

Phase space picture of quantum mechanics : group theoretical approach by
Y. S Kim(
Book
)
15 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book covers the theory and applications of the Wigner phase space distribution function and its symmetry properties. The book explains why the phase space picture of quantum mechanics is needed, in addition to the conventional Schrödinger or Heisenberg picture. It is shown that the uncertainty relation can be represented more accurately in this picture. In addition, the phase space picture is shown to be the natural representation of quantum mechanics for modern optics and relativistic quantum mechanics of extended objects

Physics of the Lorentz group by
Sibel Bașkal(
)
8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book explains the Lorentz mathematical group in a language familiar to physicists. While the threedimensional rotation group is one of the standard mathematical tools in physics, the Lorentz group of the fourdimensional Minkowski space is still very strange to most presentday physicists. It plays an essential role in understanding particles moving at close to light speed and is becoming the essential language for quantum optics, classical optics, and information science. The book is based on papers and books published by the authors on the representations of the Lorentz group based on harmonic oscillators and their applications to highenergy physics and to Wigner functions applicable to quantum optics. It also covers the twobytwo representations of the Lorentz group applicable to ray optics, including cavity, multilayer and lens optics, as well as representations of the Lorentz group applicable to Stokes parameters and the Poincaré sphere on polarization optics

New perspectives on Einstein's E=mc² by
Y. S Kim(
)
7 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Einstein's energymomentum relation is applicable to particles of all speeds, including the particle at rest and the massless particle moving with the speed of light. If one formula or formalism is applicable to all speeds, we say it is "Lorentzcovariant." As for the internal spacetime symmetries, there does not appear to be a clear way to approach this problem. For a particle at rest, there are three spin degrees of freedom. For a massless particle, there are helicity and gauge degrees of freedom. The aim of this book is to present one Lorentzcovariant picture of these two different spacetime symmetries. Using the same mathematical tool, it is possible to give a Lorentzcovariant picture of GellMann's quark model for the proton at rest and Feynman's parton model for the fastmoving proton. The mathematical formalism for these aspects of the Lorentz covariance is based on twobytwo matrices and harmonic oscillators which serve as two basic scientific languages for many different branches of physics. It is pointed out that the formalism presented in this book is applicable to various aspects of optical sciences of current interest"

Special Relativity and Quantum Theory : a Collection of Papers on the Poincaré Group by
M. E Noz(
)
3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Special relativity and quantum mechanics are likely to remain the two most important languages in physics for many years to come. The underlying language for both disciplines is group theory. Eugene P. Wigner's 1939 paper on the Unitary Representations of the Inhomogeneous Lorentz Group laid the foundation for unifying the concepts and algorithms of quantum mechanics and special relativity. In view of the strong current interest in the spacetime symmetries of elementary particles, it is safe to say that Wigner's 1939 paper was fifty years ahead of its time. This edited volume consists of Wigner's 1939 paper and the major papers on the Lorentz group published since 1939. . This volume is intended for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in physics and mathematics, as well as mature physicists wishing to understand the more fundamental aspects of physics than are available from the fashionoriented theoretical models which come and go. The original papers contained in this volume are useful as supplementary reading material for students in courses on group theory, relativistic quantum mechanics and quantum field theory, relativistic electrodynamics, general relativity, and elementary particle physics. This reprint collection is an extension of the textbook by the present editors entitled "Theory and Applications of the Poincare Group." Since this book is largely based on the articles contained herein, the present volume should be viewed as a reading for the previous work. continuation of and supplementary We would like to thank Professors J. Bjorken, R. Feynman, R. Hofstadter, J

AAA fuels handbook(
)
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
PART A of this handbook is for metal alloy fuels. The metal alloy of transuranic elements (i.e., Pu, Np, Am, Cm, etc) in Zr, designated as TRUZr, is one of the primary candidate fuel types for the AAA system. The data found in the literature were critically reviewed and assessed to provide the recommended ones. For the convenience of the user, most of the materials properties are given in model correlations; performance models are also provided in mathematical formulas. Tabulations were made in case where these were judged to allow more flexibility for the user. The information for the materials properties of the TRUZr alloy, however, is extremely scarce in general. Therefore, where no data exists, the values and models based on theoretical estimations and extrapolations from the UZr and UPuZr data are inevitably recommended. The justifications for this will be possible when sufficient measured data are available in the future. In this respect, this part is subject to modification whenever new data or better methods of deduction become available. The purpose of PART B is to provide the best available fuel materials properties and performance models of the (Pu, Zr)N and (TRU, Zr)N solidsolution fuels for fuel design and safety calculation of the Advanced Accelerator Assisted (AAA) system. PART B parallels PART A, Metal Alloy Fuels, in form and topics. The solid solution of the mononitrides of transuranic elements (i.e., Pu, Np, Am, Cm, etc) with zirconium mononitride, designated as (TRU, Zr)N, is one of the primary candidate fuel types for the AAA system, together with metallic TRUZr alloy fuels studied in Argonne National Laboratory. The data found in the literature were critically reviewed and assessed to provide the recommended ones. For the convenience of the user, most of the materials properties are given in model correlations; performance models are also provided in mathematical formulas. Tabulations were made in some cases where these were regarded to allow more flexibility for the user. The information for the materials properties of (Pu, Zr)N and (TRU, Zr)N, however, is in many cases nonexistent in general. Therefore, where no data exists, the values and models based on theoretical estimations are made. Extrapolations from the similar ceramic materials such as (U, Pu)C and (U, Pu)N, which have relatively more data, are inevitably relied upon. The justifications for this will be possible only when sufficient measured data become available in the future
