Lectures on light : nonlinear and quantum optics using the density matrix / Stephen C. Rand

Sujet(s) : Optique quantique - Optique non linéaire - Matrices densité

This book bridges the gap between introductory quantum mechanics and the research front of modern optics and scientific fields that make use of light. While suitable as a reference for the specialist in quantum optics, it also targets non-specialists from other disciplines who need to understand light and its uses in research. It introduces a single analytic tool, the density matrix, to analyze complex optical phenomena encountered in traditional as well as cross-disciplinary research. It moves swiftly in a tight sequence from elementary to sophisticated topics in quantum optics, including optical tweezers, laser cooling, coherent population transfer, optical magnetism, electromagnetically induced transparency, squeezed light, and cavity quantum electrodynamics. A systematic approach starts with the simplest systems—stationary two-level atoms—then introduces atomic motion, adds more energy levels, and moves on to discuss first-, second-, and third-order coherence effects that are the basis for analyzing new optical phenomena in incompletely characterized systems. Unconventional examples and original problems are used in exploring a mathematical methodology which can tackle virtually any new problem involving light. The steady progression from “simple” to “elaborate” makes the book accessible not only to students from traditional subject areas that make use of light, but also to researchers such as biophysicists using mechanical effects of light; photochemists developing coherent control for rare species detection; biomedical engineers imaging through scattering media; electromechanical engineers working on molecular design of materials for electronics and space; electrical and computer engineers developing schemes for quantum computation, cryptography, frequency references, and the like.

Microhydrodynamics, brownian motion, and complex fluids / Michael D. Graham

Sujet(s) : Hydrodynamique - Mouvement brownien - Fluides complexes - Dynamique des fluides

This is an introduction to the dynamics of fluids at small scales, the physical and mathematical underpinnings of Brownian motion, and the application of these subjects to the dynamics and flow of complex fluids such as colloidal suspensions and polymer solutions. It brings together continuum mechanics, statistical mechanics, polymer and colloid science, and various branches of applied mathematics, in a self-contained and integrated treatment that provides a foundation for understanding complex fluids, with a strong emphasis on fluid dynamics. Students and researchers will find that this book is extensively cross-referenced to illustrate connections between different aspects of the field. Its focus on fundamental principles and theoretical approaches provides the necessary groundwork for research in the dynamics of flowing complex fluids. (Source : Site de l'éditeur)

Quantum information meets quantum matter : from quantum entanglement to topological phases of many-body systems / Bei Zeng, Xie Chen, Duan-Lu Zhou, Xiao-Gang Wen

Sujet(s) : Matière condensée - Intrication quantique

This book approaches condensed matter physics from the perspective of quantum information science, focusing on systems with strong interaction and unconventional order for which the usual condensed matter methods like the Landau paradigm or the free fermion framework break down. Concepts and tools in quantum information science such as entanglement, quantum circuits, and the tensor network representation prove to be highly useful in studying such systems. The goal of this book is to introduce these techniques and show how they lead to a new systematic way of characterizing and classifying quantum phases in condensed matter systems.

Lithospheric discontinuities / Huaiyu Yuan, Barbara Romanowicz

Sujet(s) : Lithosphère - Tectonique

Understanding the origin and evolution of the continental crust continues to challenge Earth scientists. Lithospheric Discontinuities offers a multidisciplinary review of fine scale layering within the continental lithosphere to aid the interpretation of geologic layers. Once Earth scientists can accurately decipher the history, internal dynamics, and evolution of the continental lithosphere, we will have a clearer understanding of how the crust formed, how plate tectonics began, and how our continents became habitable.

The mechanics of earthquakes and faulting / Christopher H. Scholz

Sujet(s) : Sismologie - Failles (géologie) - Séismes

This essential reference for graduate students and researchers provides a unified treatment of earthquakes and faulting as two aspects of brittle tectonics at different timescales. The intimate connection between the two is manifested in their scaling laws and populations, which evolve from fracture growth and interactions between fractures. The connection between faults and the seismicity generated is governed by the rate and state dependent friction laws - producing distinctive seismic styles of faulting and a gamut of earthquake phenomena including aftershocks, afterslip, earthquake triggering, and slow slip events. The third edition of this classic treatise presents a wealth of new topics and new observations. These include slow earthquake phenomena; friction of phyllosilicates, and at high sliding velocities; fault structures; relative roles of strong and seismogenic versus weak and creeping faults; dynamic triggering of earthquakes; oceanic earthquakes; megathrust earthquakes in subduction zones; deep earthquakes; and new observations of earthquake precursory phenomena.

Volcanoes of the Azores : revealing the geological secrets of the Central Northern Atlantic Islands / Ulrich Kueppers, Christoph Beier, editors

Sujet(s) : Volcans

The Azores archipelago consists of nine islands that emerge from the Azores Plateau in the Central Northern Atlantic, situated within the triple junction of the American, Eurasian and African lithosphere plates. Subaerial volcanic activity has been well known since the Pliocene and continues today, with several well-documented eruptions since the settlement of the islands in the fifteenth century. The origin of the Azores Plateau has been a matter of scientific debate and thus this book provides the first comprehensive overview of geological features in the Azores from volcanological, geochemical, petrological, paleontological, structural and hydrological perspectives (Source : Site de l'éditeur)

Geomorphology of proglacial systems : landform and sediment dynamic in recently deglaciated Alpine landscapes / Tobias Heckmann, David Morche, editors

Sujet(s) : Géomorphologie glaciaire

This book discusses the recession of alpine glaciers since the end of the Little Ice Age (LIA), which has been accelerating in the past decades. It provides an overview of the research in the field, presenting definitions and information about the different proglacial areas and systems. A number of case studies are from the PROSA project group which encompasses the expertise of geomorphologists, geologists, glaciologists and geodesists. The PROSA joint project (High-resolution measurements of morphodynamics in rapidly changing PROglacial Systems of the Alps) is determined to tackle the problems of geomorphic activity on sediment export through a quantification of sediment fluxes effected by the aforementioned geomorphic processes within the forefield of the Gepatschferner glacier (Central Alps, Austria).

The history of research on chemical periodic processes / Alexander Pechenkin

Sujet(s) : Classification périodique des éléments -- Histoire

This book offers a survey of the historic development of selected areas of chemistry and chemical physics, discussing in detail the European, American and Russian approaches to the development of chemistry. Other key topics include the kinetics and non-linear thermodynamics of chemical reactions and mathematical modeling, which have found new applications in the theory of dynamical systems. The first observations of the periodicity of chemical reactions were lost in the mist of time. In the second half of the 19th century, the phenomenon of chemical periodicity was studied in relation to electrochemistry, solutions and colloids. Discovered in the late 19th century, Liesegang rings are still enigmatic and remain attractive for researchers. However, the discovery of the Belousov–Zhabotinsky reaction marked the successful culmination of the efforts to find a true chemical oscillatory reaction. The book investigates chemical phenomena that were neglected in the past, but have been rediscovered, placing them into a new conceptual framework. For example, it notes that William Bray, who discovered the first oscillatory homogeneous reaction in 1921, was influenced by the first bio-mathematicians who predicted chemical oscillations in homogeneous systems.

Classical methods in structure elucidation of natural products / R. W. Hoffmann

Sujet(s) : Produits naturels -- Spectres

The structures of many natural products are given in standard textbooks on organic chemistry as 'established facts'. Yet for those natural products whose structures were determined between 1860 and 1960 by classical chemical methods, the lines of evidence are frequently buried under any number of investigations that led to dead ends and to revised structure assignments. Since very little is known about the structure clarification of these products at present, this volume serves to shed light once again on the achievements of previous generations of chemists, who worked with minimal experimental tools.

Histoire des sciences de la vie / Pascal Duris, Gabriel Gohau

Sujet(s) : Sciences de la vie

Cette histoire des sciences de la vie est nouvelle, non par son sujet, mais par son approche. En effet, l’habituel récit chronologique plus ou moins triomphaliste d’une science faite cède ici la place à une réflexion thématique sur le lent travail de la science en train de se faire.
L’ambition des auteurs est de permettre ainsi au lecteur de comprendre comment se sont forgés les concepts fondamentaux de la biologie (espèce, évolution, fécondation, cellule, chromosome, réflexe, hormone, etc.) et comment une méthode expérimentale s’est progressivement imposée dans les sciences du vivant. Pour cela, l’ouvrage explore successivement l’histoire de la classification des espèces et des théories de l’évolution, celle des théories de la génération, de la théorie cellulaire et de l’émergence de la biologie moléculaire et, enfin, l’histoire des idées sur les grandes fonctions de l’organisme.

Bioinformatique : cours et applications / Gilbert Deléage

Sujet(s) : Bioinformatique - Séquençage des acides nucléiques

La bioinformatique est une « interdiscipline » à la frontière de la biologie, de l’informatique et des mathématiques. Elle a pour but d'intégrer des données d’origines très diverses pour modéliser les systèmes vivants afin de comprendre et prédire leurs comportements (analyse du génome, modélisation de l'évolution d'une population animale dans un environnement donné, modélisation moléculaire, reconstruction d'arbres phylogénétiques…).
Ce livre aborde de manière simple les taches courantes en bioinformatique qu’un biologiste/biochimiste doit savoir traiter par lui-même sans avoir recours au spécialiste. Conçu de manière à faciliter la compréhension des approches, méthodes, algorithmes et implémentations les plus courantes en bioinformatique moléculaire et structurale, ce livre leur permettra d’éviter les pièges classiques et de répondre aux questions usuelles : comment chercher dans les banques de données biologiques ? Peut-on reconstruire l’histoire évolutive des espèces grâce aux séquences biologiques? Quelle peut être la fonction d’une protéine ? Comment construire un modèle 3D de protéine?...
Chaque chapitre se termine par une série de QCM corrigés.
Dans cette seconde édition, le chapitre sur les bases de données a été entièrement mis à jour et un cas pratique détaillé supplémentaire a été ajouté. (Source : Site de l'éditeur)
