    The Pinch Technique and its Applications to Non-Abelian Gauge Theories
  • Author : John M. Cornwall,Joannis Papavassiliou,Daniele Binosi

  • ISBN : 9781139494274

  • Genre : Science
  • Non-Abelian gauge theories, such as quantum chromodynamics (QCD) or electroweak theory, are best studied with the aid of Green's functions that are gauge-invariant off-shell, but unlike for the photon in quantum electrodynamics, conventional graphical constructions fail. The Pinch Technique provides a systematic framework for constructing such Green's functions, and has many useful applications. Beginning with elementary one-loop examples, this book goes on to extend the method to all orders, showing that the Pinch Technique is equivalent to calculations in the background field Feynman gauge. The Pinch Technique Schwinger-Dyson equations are derived, and used to show how a dynamical gluon mass arises in QCD. Applications are given to the center vortex picture of confinement, the gauge-invariant treatment of resonant amplitudes, the definition of non-Abelian effective charges, high-temperature effects, and even supersymmetry. This book is ideal for elementary particle theorists and graduate students.

  • Genre : Science
  • On the 50th anniversary of YangOCoMills theory, this invaluable volume looks back at the developments and achievements in elementary particle physics that ensued from that beautiful idea. During the last five decades, Yang-Mills theory, which is undeniably the most important cornerstone of theoretical physics, has expanded widely. It has been investigated from many perspectives, and many new and unexpected features have been uncovered from this theory. In recent decades, apart from high energy physics, the theory has been actively applied in other branches of physics, such as statistical physics, condensed matter physics, nonlinear systems, etc. This makes the theory an indispensable topic for all who are involved in physics. An international team of experts, each of whom has left his mark on the developments of this remarkable theory, contribute essays or more detailed technical accounts to this volume. These articles highlight the new discoveries from the respective authorsOCO perspectives. The distinguished contributors are: S Adler, F A Bais, C Becchi, M Creutz, A De Rjula, B S DeWitt, F Englert, L D Faddeev, P Hasenfratz, R Jackiw, A Polyakov, V N Popov, R Stora, P van Baal, P van Nieuwenhuizen, S Weinberg, F Wilczek, E Witten, C N Yang. Included in each article are introductory and explanatory remarks by the editor, G OCOt Hooft, who is himself a major player in the development of Yang-Mills theory."

    Gauge Invariance Approach to Acoustic Fields
  • Author : Woon Siong Gan
  • Publisher : Springer
  • Pages : 169
  • ISBN : 9789811387517
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Technology & Engineering
  • This book highlights the symmetry properties of acoustic fields and describes the gauge invariance approach, which can be used to reveal those properties. Symmetry is the key theoretical framework of metamaterials, as has been demonstrated by the successful fabrication of acoustical metamaterials. The book first provides the necessary theoretical background, which includes the covariant derivative, the vector potential, and invariance in coordinate transformation. This is followed by descriptions of global gauge invariance (isotropy), and of local gauge invariance (anisotropy). Sections on time reversal symmetry, reflection invariance, and invariance of finite amplitude waves round out the coverage.

  • Pages : 431
  • ISBN : 9783031103438
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Black holes (Astronomy)
  • This textbook gradually introduces the reader to several topics related to black hole physics with a didactic approach. It starts with the most basic black hole solution, the Schwarzschild metric, and discusses the basic classical properties of black hole solutions as seen by different probes. Then it reviews various theorems about black hole properties as solutions to Einstein gravity coupled to matter fields, conserved charges associated with black holes, and laws of black hole thermodynamics. Next, it elucidates semiclassical and quantum aspects of black holes, which are relevant in ongoing and future research. The book is enriched with many exercises and solutions to assist in the learning. The textbook is designed for physics graduate students who want to start their research career in the field of black holes; postdocs who recently changed their research focus towards black holes and want to get up-to-date on recent and current research topics; advanced researchers intending to teach (or learn) basic and advanced aspects of black hole physics and the associated mathematical tools. Besides general relativity, the reader needs to be familiar with standard undergraduate physics, like thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, and statistical mechanics. Moreover, familiarity with basic quantum field theory in Minkowski space is assumed. The book covers the rest of the needed background material in the main text or the appendices.

    Gauge Theories in the Twentieth Century
  • Author : John C Taylor
  • Publisher : World Scientific
  • Pages : 404
  • ISBN : 9781783261383
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Science
  • By the end of the 1970s, it was clear that all the known forces of nature (including, in a sense, gravity) were examples of gauge theories, characterized by invariance under symmetry transformations chosen independently at each position and each time. These ideas culminated with the finding of the W and Z gauge bosons (and perhaps also the Higgs boson). This important book brings together the key papers in the history of gauge theories, including the discoveries of: the role of gauge transformations in the quantum theory of electrically charged particles in the 1920s; nonabelian gauge groups in the 1950s; vacuum symmetry-breaking in the 1960s; asymptotic freedom in the 1970s. A short introduction explains the significance of the papers, and the connections between them. Contents:Gauge Invariance in ElectromagnetismNon-Abelian Gauge TheoriesGravity as a Gauge TheoryGauge Invariance and SuperconductivitySpontaneous Symmetry Breaking and Particle PhysicsGauge-Fixing in Non-Abelian Gauge TheoriesGauge Identities and UnitarityAsymptotic FreedomMonopoles and Vortex LinesNon-Pertubative ApproachesInstantons and Vacuum StructureThree-Dimensional Gauge Fields and Topological ActionsGauge Theories and Mathematics Readership: Graduate students, researchers and lecturers in mathematical, theoretical, quantum and high energy physics, as well as historians of science. Keywords:Gauge Theory;Boson;Quantum Theory;Mathematical Physics;High Energy PhysicsReviews:“J C Taylor recently edited a collection of original articles on gauge theory, starting with a few pages from Maxwell's ‘Treatise’. The collection is well chosen, and is introduced by an instructive commentary. I find it especially useful since it included translations into English of several articles originally in German.”C N Yang SUNY, Stony Brook “This is a fascinating and valuable collection, especially the earlier papers, some of which are not now well known. John Taylor's introductory commentary provides a clear and concise explanation of the context and significance of the papers.”Tom Kibble Imperial College, London

    The Euclidean Matching Problem
  • Author : Gabriele Sicuro
  • Publisher : Springer
  • Pages : 136
  • ISBN : 9783319465777
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Science
  • This thesis discusses the random Euclidean bipartite matching problem, i.e., the matching problem between two different sets of points randomly generated on the Euclidean domain. The presence of both randomness and Euclidean constraints makes the study of the average properties of the solution highly relevant. The thesis reviews a number of known results about both matching problems and Euclidean matching problems. It then goes on to provide a complete and general solution for the one dimensional problem in the case of convex cost functionals and, moreover, discusses a potential approach to the average optimal matching cost and its finite size corrections in the quadratic case. The correlation functions of the optimal matching map in the thermodynamical limit are also analyzed. Lastly, using a functional approach, the thesis puts forward a general recipe for the computation of the correlation function of the optimal matching in any dimension and in a generic domain.

    Non-Inertial Frames and Dirac Observables in Relativity
  • Author : Luca Lusanna
  • Publisher : Cambridge University Press
  • Pages : N.a
  • ISBN : 9781108574198
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Science
  • Interpreting general relativity relies on a proper description of non-inertial frames and Dirac observables. This book describes global non-inertial frames in special and general relativity. The first part covers special relativity and Minkowski space time, before covering general relativity, globally hyperbolic Einstein space-time, and the application of the 3+1 splitting method to general relativity. The author uses a Hamiltonian description and the Dirac–Bergmann theory of constraints to show that the transition between one non-inertial frame and another is a gauge transformation, extra variables describing the frame are gauge variables, and the measureable matter quantities are gauge invariant Dirac observables. Point particles, fluids and fields are also discussed, including how to treat the problems of relative times in the description of relativistic bound states, and the problem of relativistic centre of mass. Providing a detailed description of mathematical methods, the book is perfect for theoretical physicists, researchers and students working in special and general relativity.

  • Genre : Crafts & Hobbies
  • Take charge of the fit and details of your crocheted garments, with guidance from needle art designer Margaret Hubert! Designers have to create crochet patterns in standard sizes, but very few people's bodies actually match up to those "average" measurements. Customize Your Crochet teaches crocheters how to adjust standard size patterns to fit their unique measurements. The techniques and processes taught in this book are the same ones that designer Margaret Hubert has used for years to teach classes on custom fitting. With this book, individual crocheters can learn to adjust patterns to fit themselves and the others for whom they crochet. But Customize Your Crochet goes beyond a basic, good fit to help the crocheter create a truly custom garment. Maybe you'd like that neckline a little higher, or you'd like a little flare to the sleeves. With this book, you can add individual details and give your crocheted creations personal style. Diagrams and illustrations are used throughout to explain body shapes and make comparing measurements simple. Step-by-step photography shows the details for garment construction, specific increases, decreases and other shaping methods, as well as finishing techniques and embellishments. Jump in and be confident that your next project will match your shape and style to perfection!
