By Diego Dalvit,Peter Milonni,David Roberts,Felipe da Rosa

Casimir results function basic examples of at once observable manifestations of the nontrivial homes of quantum fields, and as such are attracting expanding curiosity from quantum box theorists, particle physicists, and cosmologists. moreover, even though very susceptible other than at brief distances, Casimir forces are common within the feel that each one fabric items are topic to them. they're therefore additionally an more and more very important a part of the physics of atom-surface interactions, whereas in nanotechnology they're being investigated not just as members to ‘stiction’ but in addition as capability mechanisms for actuating micro-electromechanical devices.


While the sector of Casimir physics is increasing quickly, it has reached a degree of adulthood in a few very important respects: at the experimental part, the place so much assets of imprecision in strength measurements were pointed out in addition to at the theoretical part, the place, for instance, semi-analytical and numerical equipment for the computation of Casimir forces among our bodies of arbitrary form were effectively constructed. This booklet is, then, a well timed and accomplished consultant to the essence of Casimir (and Casimir-Polder) physics that might have lasting price, serving the twin function of an advent and connection with the sector. whereas this quantity isn't meant to be a unified textbook, yet quite a suite of principally self reliant chapters written through admired specialists within the box, the specified and thoroughly written articles undertake a method that are supposed to attract non-specialist researchers within the box in addition to to a broader viewers of graduate students.

Supercomputing, Collision Processes, and Applications (Physics of Atoms and Molecules)

Professor Philip G. Burke, CBE, FRS officially retired on 30 September 1998. To understand this social gathering a few of his colleagues, acquaintances, and previous scholars determined to carry a convention in his honour and to offer this quantity as a commitment to his huge, immense contribution to the theoretical atomic physics neighborhood.

ESR Spectroscopy in Membrane Biophysics: 27 (Biological Magnetic Resonance)

Spectroscopic equipment should not merely vital as an analytical software, additionally they offer information regarding primary actual and chemical homes of molecules, the molecular and digital constitution, and the dynamic behaviour of molecules. ranging from a complete quantum mechanical description, ESR Spectroscopy in Membrane Biophysics introduces the optical (IR, Raman, UV/Vis, CD, fluorescence and laser spectroscopy) and magnetic resonance (1D and 2D-NMR, ESR) thoughts.

Magnitude: The Scale of the Universe

Within the culture of illustrated technology bestsellers, like factor Explainer and harkening again to the vintage movie The Powers of Ten, this distinct, fully-illustrated, four-color e-book explores and visualizes the idea that of scale in our universe. In value, Kimberly Arcand and Megan Watzke take us on an expansive trip to the boundaries of measurement, mass, distance, time, temperature in our universe, from the tiniest particle in the constitution of an atom to the main big galaxy within the universe; from the rate at which grass grows (about 2 to six inches a month) to the rate of sunshine.

Molecular Symmetry, Super-Rotation, and Semiclassical Motion: New Ideas for Solving Old Problems (Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics)

This ebook provides more than a few essentially new methods to fixing difficulties concerning conventional molecular versions. primary molecular symmetry is proven to open new avenues for describing molecular dynamics past ordinary perturbation suggestions. conventional options used to explain molecular dynamics are in line with a number of basic assumptions, the ball-and-stick photograph of molecular constitution and the respective perturbative therapy of alternative sorts of couplings among differently separate motions.
