Geometric Phases in Classical and Quantum Mechanics,
Birkhaüser Boston 2004
This work examines the beautiful and important physical concept known as the "geometric phase," bringing together different physical phenomena under a unified mathematical and physical scheme.
Several well-established geometric and topological methods underscore the mathematical treatment of the subject, emphasizing a coherent perspective at a rather sophisticated level. What is unique in this text is that both the quantum and classical phases are studied from a geometric point of view, providing valuable insights into their relationship that have not been previously emphasized at the textbook level.
Key topics and features:
Graduate students in mathematics with some prior knowledge of quantum mechanics will learn about a class of applications of differential geometry and geometric methods in quantum theory. Physicists and graduate students in physics will learn techniques of differential geometry in an applied context. [Źródło: Amazon.com]
