From Quantum Measurements to Black Holes
Covering some of the most exciting trends in quantum optics - quantum entanglement, teleportation, and levitation - this textbook is ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. The book journeys through the vast field of quantum optics following a single theme: light in media. A wide range of subjects are covered, from the force of the quantum vacuum to astrophysics, from quantum$30.59
Forces of the Quantum Vacuum:An Introduction to Casimir Physics
Forces of the Quantum Vacuum presents a number of theoretical approaches to Casimir, van der Waals and Casimir–Polder forces that have been fruitfully employed in mainstream research, and also reviews the experimental evidence for Casimir forces. Beginning with basic ideas in quantum mechanics and building its way to a sophisticated form of macroscopic QED, the book provides an inspiring training$24.99
Geometry and Light: The Science of Invisibility
Suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of engineering, physics, and mathematics and scientific researchers of all types, this is the first authoritative text on invisibility and the science behind it. It introduces the mathematical foundations of differential geometry and demonstrates practical applications from general relativity to electrical and optical engineering. More than$19.99
With Applications to Chemistry, Biology, and Physics
This comprehensive introduction to principles underlying laser light scattering focuses on time dependence of fluctuations in fluid systems.
