Energetics and Equilibria by James Keeler

By James Keeler

Those lectures are taken with a crucial subject in chemistry (and, extra ordinarily, in any molecular science): what makes a response ‘go’ and what determines to put of equilibrium. placed otherwise, we are going to be taking a look into what's the driver for chemical reactions in an effort to clarify why a few reactions pass completely to items, while a few come to a place of equilibrium within which there are a great deal of reactants nonetheless present.
We shall see there there's one extremely important actual legislations, the second one legislations of Thermodynamics, which determines even if a response (or actual method) will ‘go’ and what the placement of equilibrium is. The legislation itself is easy to country, yet operating from this assertion to useful relationships and ideas which we will be able to practice is a reasonably concerned activity. a considerable a part of those lectures could be dedicated to displaying how the second one legislation might be constructed during this approach; we'll then cross directly to examine a few purposes.

By Jochen Pade

Quantenmechanik zu Fuß führt in die Grundlagen der nicht-relativistischen Quantenmechanik ein. Das Buch wendet sich an Studierende des Lehramts Physik sowie alle Studierende der Physik, die einen angemessen leichten, frischen und modernen Einstieg in das Gebiet suchen.

Nachdem im ersten Band die wesentlichen Prinzipien erarbeitet wurden, werden im vorliegenden zweiten Band Anwendungen und Erweiterungen besprochen. Neben Themen, die traditionell in Lehrbüchern der Quantenmechanik dargestellt werden wie Symmetrien oder Vielteilchensysteme, werden ausführlich aktuelle Aspekte wie Verschränkung, Bellsche Ungleichungen, Dekohärenz oder verschiedene Sachverhalte aus dem Bereich der Quanteninformation behandelt. Außerdem werden eingehend Grundlagenprobleme und erkenntnistheoretische Fragen erörtert, wie sie z.B. im Rahmen der Realismusdebatte auftreten. Ein Kapitel über Interpretationen der Quantenmechanik schließt diesen Band ab.

Wiederum werden die benötigten mathematischen Hilfsmittel Schritt für Schritt eingeführt; gegebenenfalls wird im Anhang das wichtigste mathematische Rüstzeug kompakt gesammelt. Darüber hinaus werden im Anhang weiterführende Themen vertieft wie z.B. Lenzscher Vektor, Hardys test und Shor-Algorithmus.

Rund one hundred thirty Aufgaben, die meisten mit Lösungen.
