Scattering and Structures

Essentials and Analogies in Quantum Physics

Benefits

  • Explains properties of quantum systems with elementary concepts

  • Shows analogies between systems like quantum gases and astroparticles, that are only different on first sight

  • Provides a unique representation by a very experienced lecturer

  • Teaches students how to use the essentials of quantum mechanics in order to understand the relation between seemingly different systems in atomic, nuclear and astrophysics

About this book

Introduction

Quantum physics may appear complicated, especially if one forgets the "big picture" and gets lost in the details. However, it can become clearer and less tangled if one applies a few fundamental concepts so that simplified approaches can emerge and estimated orders of magnitude become clear. Povh and Rosina’s Scattering and Structures presents the properties of quantum systems (elementary particles, nucleons, atoms, molecules, quantum gases, quantum liquids, stars, and early universe) with the help of elementary concepts and analogies between these seemingly different systems. In this new edition, sections on quantum gases and an up to date overview of elementary particles have been added.
