Density-functional theory of atoms and molecules by Robert G. Parr

By Robert G. Parr

This booklet is a rigorous, unified account of the elemental rules of the density-functional conception of the digital constitution of subject and its functions to atoms and molecules. Containing a close dialogue of the chemical strength and its derivatives, it offers an figuring out of the options of electronegativity, hardness and softness, and chemical reactivity. either the Hohenberg-Kohn-Sham and the Levy-Lieb derivations of the fundamental theorems are offered, and vast references to the literature are incorporated. introductory chapters and a number of other appendices offer the entire heritage fabric useful past a data of simple quantum concept.

Under the spell of the gauge principle

Few humans learning Gauge box conception have to be confident of the significance of the paintings of 't Hooft. This quantity incorporates a number of articles and evaluation themes overlaying his famous experiences at the renormalization of non-Abelian gauge theorems, topological phenomena in gauge box concept and ideas at the function of black holes in quantum gravity.

Field Theory, Quantum Gravity and Strings II

The current quantity box idea, Quantum Gravity and Strings, II includes for the lectures introduced in 1985/86 at a joint seminar of the DAPHE observatory at Meudon and the LPTHE collage Paris VI. This set of lectures comprises chosen issues of present curiosity in box and particle idea, cosmology and statistical mechanics.

Problem Book in Quantum Field Theory (2007)(2nd ed.)(en)(256s)

The matter publication in Quantum box idea comprises approximately two hundred issues of strategies or tricks that support scholars to enhance their realizing and enhance abilities invaluable for pursuing the topic. It offers with the Klein-Gordon and Dirac equations, classical box concept, canonical quantization of scalar, Dirac and electromagnetic fields, the tactics within the lowest order of perturbation thought, renormalization and regularization.
