Density functional theory models developed over the past decade provide
unique information about the structure of nanoscale defects produced by
irradiation and about the nature of short-range intera . . . . .
In this pedagogical introduction, I discuss theoretical aspects of superfluidity and superconductivity, mostly using a field-theoretical formalism. While the emphasis is on general concepts and mechan . . . . .
This book is an introduction to the computational methods used in physics, but also in other scientific fields. It is addressed to an audience that has already been exposed to the introductory level o . . . . .
Optical atomic clocks represent the state-of-the-art in the frontier of modern measurement science. In this article we provide a detailed review on the development of optical atomic clocks that are ba . . . . .
I give a pedagogical overview of decoherence and its role in providing a dynamical account of the quantum-to-classical transition. The formalism and concepts of decoherence theory are reviewed, follow . . . . .
