Martin Reuter, Walter Dittrich, "Classical and Quantum Dynamics: From Classical Paths to Path Integrals, 4th Edition"
ISBN: 3319216767 | 2015 | EPUB | 461 pages | 7 MB
Graduate students who want to become familiar with advanced computational strategies in classical and quantum dynamics will find here both the fundamentals of a standard course and a detailed treatment of the time-dependent oscillator, Chern-Simons mechanics, the Maslov anomaly and the Berry phase, to name a few. Well-chosen and detailed examples illustrate the perturbation theory, canonical transformations, the action principle and demonstrate the usage of path integrals.
This new edition has been revised and enlarged with chapters on quantum electrodynamics, high energy physics, Green’s functions and strong interaction.
