It is aimed at helping students who have difficulty in finding accessible and compact expositions of the material in standard textbooks.
A Primer of Analytical Mechanics : Franco Strocchi :
Visit our Beautiful Books page and find lovely books for kids, photography lovers and more. Last but not least, a subject index has been added and a number of misprints have been corrected.
It will be useful to physicists, mathematicians, and philosophers of physics alike, as it successfully bridges fganco gap between the rigorous and the non-rigorous, the formal and the heuristic approaches to quantum field theory. I highly recommend it. The book discusses fundamental aspects of Quantum Field Theory and of Gauge theories, with attention to mathematical consistency.
Table of Contents 1: Those looking for a mathematically well-founded approach to the theories combined in the Standard Model of elementary particle physics can hardly do better than consult Strocchi’s work. The book also addresses a number of points usually not included in textbook presentations of Analytical Mechanics, such as 1 the characterization of the cases in which the Hamiltonian differs from the energy, 2 the characterization of the non-uniqueness of the Lagrangian and of the Hamiltonian and stgocchi relation to a “gauge” transformation, 3 the Hamiltonian formulation of the Noether theorem, with the possibility that the constant of motion corresponding to a continuous symmetry of the dynamics is not the canonical generator of the symmetry transformation but also strocfhi the generator of a gauge transformation.

Problems in Quantum Mechanics Luigi E. Frequently such difficulties are due to the use of perturbation theory with questionable convergence properties.

It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide. It is responsible for the conflict between locality of the charged fields and positivity, it yields the superselection of the unbroken gauge charges, provides a non-perturbative explanation of the Higgs mechanism in the local gauges, implies the infraparticle structure of the charged particles in QED and the breaking of the Lorentz group in the charged sectors.
The general physical principles of positivity of the energy, Poincare’ covariance and locality provide a substitute for canonical quantization, qualify frqnco non-perturbative foundation and lead to very relevant results, like the Spin-statistics theorem, TCP symmetry, a substitute for canonical quantization, non-canonical behaviour, the euclidean formulation at the basis of the functional integral approach, the non-perturbative definition of the S-matrix LSZ, Haag-Ruelle-Buchholz theory.

Try the Kindle edition and experience these great reading features: Description The new edition of this well received primer on rigorous aspects of symmetry breaking presents a more detailed and thorough discussion of the mechanism of symmetry breaking in classical field theory in relation with the Noether theorem.
Quantum Space Jim Baggott. Questions related to the recent discovery of the Higgs Boson had to be analyzed using QFT, as string theory proved to be of little help with specifics.

The solution of the U 1 problem in QCD, the theta vacuum structure and the inevitable breaking of the chiral symmetry in each theta sector are derived solely from the topology of the gauge group, without relying on the semiclassical instanton approximation.
