Dynamics of Complex Quantum Systems (2nd Ed., Softcover reprint of the original 2nd ed. 2014) Theoretical and Mathematical Physics Series
Auteur : Akulin Vladimir M.
This book gathers together a range of similar problems that can be
encountered in different fields of modern quantum physics and that have
common features with regard to multilevel quantum systems. The main
motivation was to examine from a uniform standpoint various models and
approaches that have been developed in atomic, molecular, condensed
matter, chemical, laser and nuclear physics in various contexts. The
book should help senior-level undergraduate, graduate students and
researchers putting particular problems in these fields into a broader
scientific context and thereby taking advantage of well-established
techniques used in adjacent fields.
This second edition has been expanded to include substantial new material (e.g. new sections on Dynamic Localization and on Euclidean Random Matrices and new chapters on Entanglement, Open Quantum Systems, and Coherence Protection). It is based on the author?s lectures at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, at the CNRS Aimé Cotton Laboratory, and on other courses he has given over the last two decades.
