Semiclassical Physics - CRC Press Book. This book attempts to convey to the reader that semiclassical physics can be fun, as well as useful for understanding quantum fluctuations in interacting many-body systems. It presents applications to finite fermion systems in diverse areas of physics. Semiclassical physics, or simply semiclassical refers to a theory in which one part of a system is described quantum-mechanically whereas the other is treated classically. For example, external fields will be constant, or when changing will be classically described.

Heller centers his book on the semiclassical physics of a few continuous degrees of freedom. He is an acknowledged grand master in that area and is known for discovering the mysterious and deep phenomenon called scarring—the existence of energy eigenstates whose wavefunctions are enhanced on certain classical periodic larep-immo.com: John McGreevy.

By Matthias Brack, Rajat Bhaduri. Edition 1st Edition. First Published eBook . Semiclassical Physics explores the fascinating and deep connection between classical motion and quantum fluctuations. The book conveys a way of describing quantum effects in a physical system using the periodic orbit theory of Gutzwiller, which focuses on the classical dynamics of the system.

“This book is based on some lectures given by the author to postgraduate Ph.D. students at the Centre for Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, School of Mathematics and Physics, of Queen’s University Belfast, and reflects the author’s research interests. At the end of the book, the reader will find a very rich list of references. book The Semiclassical Way to Dynamics and Spectroscopycan be read as an argu-ment that classical mechanics underpins quantum mechanics. The path integral, which is expressed in terms of familiar quantities from classical mechanics, is the tool that allows physicists to enter-tain that point of view. Heller centers his book on the semi-. Semiclassical Physics emphasizes the close connection between the shorter classical periodic orbits, and the partially resolved quantum fluctuations in the level density and response of an autonomous finite quantum system. Particular care is taken to present a detailed derivation of Gutzwiller's trace formula, and its extensions to continuous symmetries, zeta function techniques, and Reviews: 1. Semiclassical Theory of Atoms presents a novel approach to theoretical atomic physics. The fundamental quantity in this new, powerful formalism is the effective potential, not the density. The starting point is the highly semiclassical approximation known as the Thomas-Fermi model.
