From peturbative to constructive renormalization by
Vincent Rivasseau(
)
22 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The last decade has seen striking progress in the subject of renormalization in quantum field theory. The old subject of perturbative renormalization has been revived by the use of powerful methods such as multiscale decompositions; precise estimates have been added to the initial theorems on finiteness of renormalized perturbation theory, with new results on its large order asymptotics. Furthermore, constructive field theory has reached one of its major goals, the mathematically rigorous construction of some renormalizable quantum field theories. For these models one can in particular investigate rigorously the phenomenon of asymptotic freedom, which plays a key role in our current understanding of the interaction among elementary particles. However, until this book, there has been no pedagogical synthesis of these new developments. Vincent Rivasseau, who has been actively involved in them, now describes them for a wider audience. There are, in fact, common concepts at the heart of the progress on perturbative and constructive techniques. Exploiting these similarities, the author uses perturbative renormalization, which is the more widely known and conceptually simpler of the two cases, to explain the less familiar but more mathematically meaningful constructive renormalization.Originally published in 1991.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest printondemand technology to again make available previously outofprint books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

19 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This tenth volume in the Poincaré Seminar Series describes recent developments at one of the most challenging frontiers in statistical physics  the deeply related fields of glassy dynamics, especially near the glass transition, and of the statics and dynamics of granular systems. These fields are marked by a vigorous interchange between experiment, theory, and numerical studies, all of which are well represented by the leading experts who have contributed articles to this volume. These articles are also highly pedagogical, as befits their origin in lectures to a broad scientific audience.¡ Highlights include a Galilean dialogue on the mean field and competing theories of the glass transition, a wideranging survey of colloidal glasses, and experimental as well as theoretical treatments of the relatively new field of dense granular flows. This book should be of broad general interest to both physicists and mathematicians

Biological physics : Poincaré Seminar 2009 by
Bertrand Duplantier(
)
16 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This new volume in the Poincaré Seminar Series, describing recent developments at the interface between physics and biology, is directed towards a broad audience of physicists, biologists, and mathematicians. Both the theoretical and experimental aspects are covered, and particular care is devoted to the pedagogical nature of the presentations. The first survey article, by JeanFrancois Joanny and Jacques Prost, describes the theoretical advances made in the study of "active gels", with applications to liquid crystals and cell motility. Jasper van der Gucht and Cécile Sykes then report on recent advances made with biomimetic model systems in the understanding of cytokinesis. The next article, by Jonathon Howard, presents several molecular models for motor proteins, which are compared with experimental results for kinesin. David Lacoste and Kirone Mallick then show theoretically that similar ratchet models of motor proteins naturally satisfy a fundamental timereversal symmetry, the GallavottiCohen fluctuation relation. JeanFrancois Allemand, David Bensimon and Vincent Croquette and their coauthors describe the latest advances made in the realtime single molecule study of the enzymes involved in DNA replication. Raymond E. Goldstein addresses the problem of understanding, from a physics perspective, the driving forces behind the biological evolution of multicellularity, using Volvocine algae as model organisms. Stanislas Dehaene finally addresses the major challenge of understanding the neuronal mechanism of consciousness, and speculates on the possible theoretical explanations of MRI experiments.

Henri Poincaré, 19122012 : Poincaré Seminar 2012 by
Bertrand Duplantier(
)
21 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This thirteenth volume of the Poincaré Seminar Series, Henri Poincaré, 19122012, is published on the occasion of the centennial of the death of Henri Poincaré in 1912. It presents a scholarly approach to Poincaré's genius and creativity in mathematical physics and mathematics. Its five articles are also highly pedagogical, as befits their origin in lectures to a broad scientific audience. Highlights include "Poincaré's Light" by Olivier Darrigol, a leading historian of science, who uses light as a guiding thread through much of Poincaré 's physics and philosophy, from the application of his superior mathematical skills and the theory of diffraction to his subsequent reflections on the foundations of electromagnetism and the electrodynamics of moving bodies; the authoritative "Poincaré and the ThreeBody Problem" by Alain Chenciner, who offers an exquisitely detailed, hundredpage perspective, peppered with vivid excerpts from citations, on the monumental work of Poincaré on this subject, from the famous (King Oscar's) 1889 memoir to the foundations of the modern theory of chaos in "Les méthodes nouvelles de la mécanique céleste." A profoundly original and scholarly presentation of the work by Poincaré on probability theory is given by Laurent Mazliak in "Poincaré's Odds," from the incidental first appearance of the word "probability" in Poincaré's famous 1890 theorem of recurrence for dynamical systems, to his later acceptance of the unavoidability of probability calculus in Science, as developed to a great extent by Emile Borel, Poincaré's main direct disciple; the article by Francois Béguin, "Henri Poincaré and the Uniformization of Riemann Surfaces," takes us on a fascinating journey through the six successive versions in twentysix years of the celebrated uniformization theorem, which exemplifies the Master's distinctive signature in the foundational fusion of mathematics and physics, on which conformal field theory, string theory and quantum gravity so much depend nowadays; the final chapter, "Harmony and Chaos, On the Figure of Henri Poincaré" by the filmmaker Philippe Worms, describes the homonymous poetical film in which eminent scientists, through mathematical scenes and physical experiments, display their emotional relationship to the often elusive scientific truth and universal "harmony and chaos" in Poincaré's legacy. This book will be of broad general interest to physicists, mathematicians, philosophers of science and historians

The H Boson by
C Bachas(
)
15 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume provides a detailed description of the seminal theoretical construction in 1964, independently by Robert Brout and Francois Englert, and by Peter W. Higgs, of a mechanism for shortrange fundamental interactions, now called the BroutEnglertHiggs (BEH) mechanism. It accounts for the nonzero mass of elementary particles and predicts the existence of a new particle  an elementary massive scalar boson. In addition to this the book describes the experimental discovery of this fundamental missing element in the Standard Model of particle physics. The H Boson, also called the Higgs Boson, was produced and detected in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) of CERN near Geneva by two large experimental collaborations, ATLAS and CMS, which announced its discovery on the 4th of July 2012. This new volume of the Poincaré Seminar Series, The H Boson, corresponds to the nineteenth seminar, held on November 29, 2014, at Institut Henri Po incaré in Paris

Dirac matter by
Séminaire Poincaré(
)
17 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and German and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This fifteenth volume of the Poincare Seminar Series, Dirac Matter, describes the surprising resurgence, as a lowenergy effective theory of conducting electrons in many condensed matter systems, including graphene and topological insulators, of the famous equation originally invented by P.A.M. Dirac for relativistic quantum mechanics. In five highly pedagogical articles, as befits their origin in lectures to a broad scientific audience, this book explains why Dirac matters. Highlights include the detailed "Graphene and Relativistic Quantum Physics", written by the experimental pioneer, Philip Kim, and devoted to graphene, a form of carbon crystallized in a twodimensional hexagonal lattice, from its discovery in 20042005 by the future Nobel prize winners Kostya Novoselov and Andre Geim to the socalled relativistic quantum Hall effect; the review entitled "Dirac Fermions in Condensed Matter and Beyond", written by two prominent theoreticians, Mark Goerbig and Gilles Montambaux, who consider many other materials than graphene, collectively known as "Dirac matter", and offer a thorough description of the merging transition of Dirac cones that occurs in the energy spectrum, in various experiments involving stretching of the microscopic hexagonal lattice; the third contribution, entitled "Quantum Transport in Graphene: Impurity Scattering as a Probe of the Dirac Spectrum", given by Hélène Bouchiat, a leading experimentalist in mesoscopic physics, with Sophie Guéron and Chuan Li, shows how measuring electrical transport, in particular magnetotransport in real graphene devices  contaminated by impurities and hence exhibiting a diffusive regime  allows one to deeply probe the Dirac nature of electrons. The last two contributions focus on topological insulators; in the authoritative "Experimental Signatures of Topological Insulators", Laurent Lévy reviews recent experimental progress in the physics of mercurytelluride samples under strain, which demonstrates that the surface of a threedimensional topological insulator hosts a twodimensional massless Dirac metal; the illuminating final contribution by David Carpentier, entitled "Topology of Bands in Solids: From Insulators to Dirac Matter", provides a geometric description of Bloch wave functions in terms of Berry phases and parallel transport, and of their topological classification in terms of invariants such as Chern numbers, and ends with a perspective on threedimensional semimetals as described by the Weyl equation. This book will be of broad general interest to physicists, mathematicians, and historians of science

Theoretical physics is a vast set of subjects, ideas and methods, with wide and unexpected applications to many interdisciplinary problems. But no general international conference had tried to review in depth this huge and burgeoning field since the Trieste conference in 1968. The International Conference on Theoretical Physics, TH2002, which took place at the Unesco building, Paris, from July 22 to 27, 2002, addressed this challenge. The reader will find in this book all invited and received contributions to the conference. After the general lectures of Nobel prize winners Anderson and Yang, the contributions by experts cover all aspects of modern theoretical physics ranging from particle physics, string theory, cosmology, statistical and condensed matter physics to dynamical systems and quantum chaos, the physics/biology interface, information theory and quantum computing

Justice internationale et impunité, le cas des ÉtatsUnis(
Book
)
4 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La justice internationale perd toute crédibilité si les Etats puissants continuent à bénéficier d'une totale impunité. Le cas des EtatsUnis est emblématique : politique d'agression, traitements inhumains, détentions illégales, autant de "crimes internationaux" dont les responsables devraient être poursuivis selon la charte de l'ONU et les Conventions de Genève. Voici le constat accablant des faits d'Hiroshima à nos jours, les valeurs à défendre et les actions à mener pour que l'humanité l'emporte sur la barbarie

La science et la guerre : la responsabilité des scientifiques(
Book
)
4 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Science rime désormais autant avec progrès qu'avec destruction : ce livre, accessible aux nonspécialistes, décrit les armes mises au point avec l'aide de la science et leur utilisation jusqu'à aujourd'hui, aborde les liens tissés entre scientifiques et militaires, et dresse un bilan des réussites et des échecs du contrôle de l'armement, posant ainsi explicitement la question de la responsabilité des scientifiques et, plus largement, de l'humanité tout entière
