      There is an approach to relativistic quantum mechanics which (in my humble opinion) is superior to all others. It is based on Wigner's theory of unitary representations of the Poincare group. Occasionally, these ideas are mentioned in textbooks, but I haven't seen any good systematic exposition. A variety of processes are discussed with concepts such as potentials, classical current distributions, prescribed external fields dealt with in the framework of relativistic quantum mechanics. Then, in an introduction to field theory, the author emphasizes the deduction of the said potentials or currents.

    This book addresses undergraduate and graduate physics students who are interested in a clearly arranged and structured presentation of relativistic quantum mechanics in the "narrow sense" and its connection to quantum field theories. Each section contains a short summary and Brand: Springer Netherlands. A fully relativistic treatment of the quantum mechanics of particles requires the introduction of quantum field theory, that is to say, the quantum mechan­ ics of systems with an infinite number of degrees of freedom. This is because the relativistic equivalence of mass and energy plus the quantum.

    This clear account of relativistic quantum theory will be valuable to graduate students and researchers working in condensed matter physics and quantum physics.

Gross provides complete, up-to-date coverage of both elementary and advanced topics. This book combines these two discoveries to provide a complete description of the fundamentals of relativistic quantum physics, guiding the reader effortlessly from relativistic quantum mechanics to basic quantum field theory.

The book by Zee, Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshell, is good for someone with background on gravity and condense matter, but will mess up the beginner's mind with bombarding of variety of topic.

I personally suggest, Ashok Das, Ryder, and Mandel & Shaw. Relativistic Quantum Mechanics and Field Theory fills this striking In surveying available books on advanced quantum mechanics and field theory, Franz Gross determined that while established books were outdated, newer titles tended to focus on recent developments and disregard the basics/5(7).

That, in essence, is a quantum field: the stuff out of which everything is made. It’s a boiling sea of random fluctuations, on top of which you can create quantized propagating waves that we call particles.

I only wish, as a primarily visual thinker, that the usual introduction to quantum field theory didn’t look quite so much like this. A fully relativistic treatment of the quantum mechanics of particles requires the introduction of quantum field theory, that is to say, the quantum mechan­ ics of systems with.

Relativistic Quantum Mechanics and Field Theory are among the most challenging and beautiful subjects in Physics. From their study we explain how states decay, can predict the existence of antimatter, learn about the origin of forces, and make the connection between.

This chapter contains standard preparatory material. We will present an overview of special relativity, relativistic Klein–Gordon and Dirac wave equations and the convention in this book for Dirac spinors, and a self-contained discussion of representation theory of the rotation and Lorentz groups.

With a strong emphasis on applications to practical problems as well as calculations, Dr. Gross provides complete, up-to-date coverage of both elementary and advanced topics /5(7). Relativistic Quantum Mechanics (PDF ) The subject of most of this book is the quantum mechanics of systems which have a small number of degrees of freedom.

This book is a mix of descriptions of quantum mechanics itself, the general properties of systems described by quantum mechanics, and general techniques for describing their behavior.

Quantum Mechanics, Third Edition: Non-relativistic Theory is devoted to non-relativistic quantum mechanics. The theory of the addition of angular momenta, collision theory, and the theory of symmetry are examined, together with spin, nuclear structure, motion in a magnetic field, and diatomic and polyatomic molecules.

A general formulation of classical relativistic particle mechanics is presented, with an emphasis on the fact that superluminal velocities and nonlocal interactions are compatible with relativity. Then a manifestly relativistic-covariant formulation of relativistic quantum mechanics (QM) of fixed number of particles (with or without spin) is presented, based on many-time wave functions and the Cited by: Lectures on Quantum Mechanics and Relativistic Field Theory book.

Since he has been Professor Emeritus at the period Prof Bjorken coauthored with Sidney Drell the pair of textbooks Relativistic Quantum Mechanics and Relativistic Quantum Fields; and, with Sheldon Glashow, presented arguments for the existence of a fourth kind of quark, suggesting its name, "charmed.".

A sequel to the well received book, Quantum Mechanics by T Y Wu, this book carries on where the earlier volume ends. This present volume follows the generally pedagogic style of Quantum Mechanics. The scope ranges from relativistic quantum mechanics to an introduction to quantum field theory with quantum electrodynamics as the basic example and.

This is where the indispensability of quantum field theory reasoning becomes apparent and basic quantum field theory concepts are introduced.

Volume 2 of this three-part series presents the quantization of classical field theory using the path integral formalism. For this volume the target audience is students who wish to learn about relativistic quantum field theory applied to particle physics, however, it is still very accessible and useful for students of condensed matter.

The problems which arise for a relativistic quantum mechanics are reviewed and critically examined in connection with the foundations of quantum field theory.turers.

Although a cursory acquaitance with th subject of Quantum Field Theory is helpful, the only requirement to follow the lectures it is a working knowledge of Quantum Mechanics and Special Relativity. The guiding principle in choosing the topics presented (apart to serve as introductions to later.
