By Philip W. Anderson

Easy Notions of Condensed subject Physics is a transparent advent to a couple of the main major suggestions within the physics of condensed subject. the final rules of many-body physics and perturbation conception are emphasized, delivering supportive mathematical constitution. this is often a selection and restatement of the second one 1/2 Nobel Laureate Philip Anderson’s vintage thoughts in Solids.

The Kondo problem to heavy fermions

This booklet offers with the ideas and strategies which were built to fulfill this problem and with their program to the translation of scan. the writer surveys intimately the many-body strategies, scaling, renormalization crew, Fermi liquid and Bethe ansatz, which bring about an answer of the Kondo challenge for many of the theoretical versions.

From order to chaos II : essays, critical, chaotic, and otherwise

This e-book is a compilation of the evaluation papers, expositions and a few of the technical works of Leo Kadanoff, a theoretical physicist. the target is to place jointly a gaggle of not-too-technical writing during which he discusses a few concerns in condensed subject physics, hydrodynamics, utilized arithmetic and nationwide coverage.

For planar graphs however, the simplicity of the matrix model solutions has finally been explained combinatorially by Schaeffer [11], who found various bijections between planar graphs and trees, allowing for a simple enumeration, and a precise contact with the matrix model solutions [12]. A remarkable by-product of this approach is that one may keep track on the trees of some features of the planar graphs, such as geodesic distances between vertices or faces [13] [14], a task beyond the reach of matrix models so far.
