Paul Dirac : the man and his work by
Abraham Pais(
Book
)
12 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac was one of the founders of quantum theory. He is numbered alongside Newton, Maxwell and Einstein as one of the greatest physicists of all time. Together the lectures in this volume, originally presented on the occasion of the dedication ceremony for a plaque commemorating Dirac in Westminster Abbey, give a unique insight into the relationship between Dirac's character and his scientific achievements. The text begins with the dedication address given by Stephen Hawking at the ceremony. Then Abraham Pais describes Dirac as a person and his approach to his work. Maurice Jacob explains how Dirac was led to introduce the concept of antimatter, and its central role in modern particle physics and cosmology, followed by an account by David Olive of the origin and enduring influence of Dirac's work on magnetic monopoles. Finally, Sir Michael Atiyah explains the deep and widespread significance of the Dirac equation in mathematics

Introduction to Quantum Fields on a Lattice by
Jan Smit(
)
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation This book provides a concrete introduction to quantum fields on a lattice: a precise and nonperturbative definition of quantum field theory obtained by replacing the spacetime continuum by a lattice. Topics covered include quark confinement, chiral symmetry breaking in QCD, quantized nonabelian gauge fields, scaling and universality. The author also discusses the results of simulations on computers

Lattice models of polymers by
Carlo Vanderzande(
)
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides an introduction to lattice models of polymers. This is an important topic both in the theory of critical phenomena and the modelling of polymers. The first two chapters introduce the basic theory of random, directed and selfavoiding walks. The next two chapters develop and expand this theory to explore the selfavoiding walk in both two and three dimensions. Following chapters describe polymers near a surface, dense polymers, selfinteracting polymers and branched polymers. The book closes with discussions of some geometrical and topological properties of polymers, and of selfavoiding surfaces on a lattice. The volume combines results from rigorous analytical and numerical work to give a coherent picture of the properties of lattice models of polymers. This book will be valuable for graduate students and researchers working in statistical mechanics, theoretical physics and polymer physics. It will also be of interest to those working in applied mathematics and theoretical chemistry

Knots and Feynman diagrams by
Dirk Kreimer(
)
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book provides an accessible and uptodate introduction to how knot theory and Feynman diagrams can be used to illuminate problems in quantum field theory." "Beginning with a summary of key ideas from perturbative quantum field theory and an introduction to the Hopf algebra structure of renormalization, early chapters discuss the rationality of ladder diagrams and simple link diagrams. The necessary basics of knot theory are then presented and the number theoretic relationship between the topology of Feynman diagrams and knot theory is explored. Later chapters discuss fourterm relations motivated by the discovery of Vassiliev invariants in knot theory and draw a link to algebraic structures recently observed in noncommutative geometry. Detailed references are included." "Dealing with material at perhaps the most productive interface between mathematics and physics, the book will not only be of considerable interest to theoretical and particle physicists, but also to many mathematicians."BOOK JACKET
