3. Quantum mechanics [2020]
 Mécanique quantique. English
 CohenTannoudji, Claude, 1933 author.
 Second edition  Weinheim, Germany : WileyVCH, [2020]
 Description
 Book — 3 volumes (2353 pages) : illustrations ; 25 cm
 Summary

 volume 1. Basic concepts, tools, and applications
 volume 2. Angular momentum, spin, and approximation methods
 volume 3. Fermions, bosons, photons, correlations, and entanglement
(source: Nielsen Book Data)
This new, third volume of CohenTannoudji's groundbreaking textbook covers advanced topics of quantum mechanics such as uncorrelated and correlated identical particles, the quantum theory of the electromagnetic field, absorption, emission and scattering of photons by atoms, and quantum entanglement. Written in a didactically unrivalled manner, the textbook explains the fundamental concepts in seven chapters which are elaborated in accompanying complements that provide more detailed discussions, examples and applications. * Completing the success story: the third and final volume of the quantum mechanics textbook written by 1997 Nobel laureate Claude CohenTannoudji and his colleagues Bernard Diu and Franck Laloe * As easily comprehensible as possible: all steps of the physical background and its mathematical representation are spelled out explicitly * Comprehensive: in addition to the fundamentals themselves, the books comes with a wealth of elaborately explained examples and applications Claude CohenTannoudji was a researcher at the KastlerBrossel laboratory of the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris where he also studied and received his PhD in 1962. In 1973 he became Professor of atomic and molecular physics at the College des France. His main research interests were optical pumping, quantum optics and atomphoton interactions. In 1997, Claude CohenTannoudji, together with Steven Chu and William D. Phillips, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his research on laser cooling and trapping of neutral atoms. Bernard Diu was Professor at the Denis Diderot University (Paris VII). He was engaged in research at the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics and High Energy where his focus was on strong interactions physics and statistical mechanics. Franck Laloe was a researcher at the KastlerBrossel laboratory of the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris. His first assignment was with the University of Paris VI before he was appointed to the CNRS, the French National Research Center. His research was focused on optical pumping, statistical mechanics of quantum gases, musical acoustics and the foundations of quantum mechanics.

 Summary

"We prove LojasiewiczSimon gradient inequalities for coupled YangMills energy functions using Sobolev spaces which impose minimal regularity requirements on pairs of connections and sections. The LojasiewiczSimon gradient inequalities for coupled YangMills energy functions generalize that of the pure YangMills energy function due to the first author (Feehan, 2014) for base manifolds of arbitrary dimension and due to R"ade (1992, Proposition 7.2) for dimensions two and three" Provided by publisher
