Introduction to statistical field theory by
E Brézin(
)
19 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Knowledge of the renormalization group and field theory is a key part of physics, and is essential in condensed matter and particle physics. Written for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, this textbook provides a concise introduction to this subject. The textbook deals directly with the loopexpansion of the freeenergy, also known as the background field method. This is a powerful method, especially when dealing with symmetries, and statistical mechanics. In focussing on freeenergy, the author avoids long developments on field theory techniques. The necessity of renormalization then follows"Provided by publisher

Random matrix theory with an external source by
E Brézin(
)
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"We consider Gaussian random matrix models in the presence of a deterministic matrix source. In such models, the correlation functions are known exactly for an arbitrary source and for any size of the matrices. The freedom given by the external source allows for various tunings to different classes of universality. Our main interest here is to use this freedom to compute various topological invariants for surfaces, such as the intersection numbers for curves drawn on a surface of given genus with marked points, or the P¹ GromovWitten invariants. A remarkable duality for the average of characteristic polynomials is essential for obtaining such topological invariants. We have presented most results in several earlier publications, but here we have attempted to present a unified and concise exposition."About This Book, page ix

Dix physiciens répondent à l'appel d'E. Brézin pour présenter leur discipline d'une manière nouvelle : ils n'exposent pas les résultats de la physique comme des dogmes mais ils décrivent les questions qui n'ont pas encore de réponses établies. Ils évoquent les origines du bigbang, l'avenir de l'Univers, la nouvelle révolution quantique qui pourrait bouleverser le monde de l'informatique, etc

Random matrix theory with an external source by
Edouard Brézin(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a first book to show that the theory of the Gaussian random matrix is essential to understand the universal correlations with random fluctuations and to demonstrate that it is useful to evaluate topological universal quantities. We consider Gaussian random matrix models in the presence of a deterministic matrix source. In such models the correlation functions are known exactly for an arbitrary source and for any size of the matrices. The freedom given by the external source allows for various tunings to different classes of universality. The main interest is to use this freedom to compute various topological invariants for surfaces such as the intersection numbers for curves drawn on a surface of given genus with marked points, Euler characteristics, and the GromovWitten invariants. A remarkable duality for the average of characteristic polynomials is essential for obtaining such topological invariants. The analysis is extended to nonorientable surfaces and to surfaces with boundaries

The major accident at Fukushima : seismic, nuclear and medical considerations by
E Brézin(
)
5 editions published in 2012 in English and Multiple languages and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"On March 11, 2011, the NorthEast of Japan was struck by a huge earthquake followed by a major tsunami and a series of accidents that took place at the nuclear power site at Fukushima, with emissions of radioactive elements". This was the message addressed by Prof. Kanazawa, President of the Science Council of Japan (SCJ), only a few days after the catastrophe, to his colleagues Presidents of the Science Academies, adding that he nourished the hope the "the academies would continue in the future to help with the necessary rehabilitation work". The idea arose immediately to set up an ad hoc academic Working Party, with the assigned mission to analyse the events that had taken place in Japan, to make a status report regarding seismic and nuclear risks both in metropolitan France and in overseas territories and to draw conclusions and make recommendations as deemed appropriate to the situation. The academic Working Party comprised three separate subgroups, each dealing with one of the three aspects  seismic, nuclear and medical  of the drama as it unfolded. For each of these components, objects of the three parts of this report, the analysis of observed events in Fukushima was supplemented by a reflection o the strengths and weaknesses of these areas in France, in order to formulate the necessary recommendations and to answer scientific and societal question public arises. Although uncertainties remain and that new information still come each month to enrich the record, the enclosed reports seemed complete enough to be published in the state, after the anniversary of this tragedy that will long continue to challenge us

Applications of random matrices in physics by
E Brézin(
Book
)
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Random matrices are widely and successfully used in physics for almost 6070 years, beginning with the works of Dyson and Wigner. Although it is an old subject, it is constantly developing into new areas of physics and mathematics. It constitutes now a part of the general culture of a theoretical physicist. Mathematical methods inspired by random matrix theory become more powerful, sophisticated and enjoy rapidly growing applications in physics. Recent examples include the calculation of universal correlations in the mesoscopic system, new applications in disordered and quantum chaotic systems, in combinatorial and growth models, as well as the recent breakthrough, due to the matrix models, in two dimensional gravity and string theory and the nonabelian gauge theories. The book consists of the lectures of the leading specialists and covers rather systematically many of these topics. It can be useful to the specialists in various subjects using random matrices, from PhD students to confirmed scientists

Extrait du résumé figurant sur la jaquette : Conférence donnée le 16 Juin 2005 par Edouard BREZIN. La physique et les mathématiques sont étroitement mêlées depuis toujours. Tantôt c'est la première qui conduit à développer les mathématiques impliquées par les lois de la nature, tantôt des structures mathématiques élaborées sans référence au monde extérieur se trouvent être précisément adaptées à la description de phénomènes découverts pourtant postérieurement. C'est là l'efficacité déraisonnable des mathématiques dans les sciences de la nature dont parlait Eugène Wigner. Jamais les interactions entre physique et mathématiques n'ont été plus intenses qu'à notre époque, jamais la description des phénomènes naturels n'a requis des mathématiques aussi savantes qu'aujourd'hui. Pourtant il est important de comprendre la différence de nature entre ces deux disciplines. La physique n'établit pas de théorèmes ; jusqu'à présent elle se contente de modèles dont les capacités à prédire, et la comparaison avec l'expérience établissent la validité, avec une économie dans la description et une précision parfois confondantes. Néanmoins nous savons que tous les modèles dont nous disposons actuellement, toutes les lois, ne sont que des descriptions effectives comme l'on dit aujourd'hui, c'estàdire adaptées aux échelles de temps, de distance, d'énergie avec lesquelles nous observons, mais dont nous savons de manière interne, avant même que des phénomènes nouveaux les aient invalidées, qu'elles sont inaptes à aller beaucoup plus loin. Y aura til une description définitive qui, tel un théorème, s'appliquerait sans limitations? Ce rêve d'une théorie ultime, où la physique rejoindrait les mathématiques, caressé par certains, laisse beaucoup d'autres sceptiques ; quoiqu'il en soit la question ne sera certainement pas tranchée rapidement
