Relativistic Quantum Mechanics: An Introduction to Relativistic Quantum Fields, Paperback by Maiani, Luciano; Benhar, Omar; Hall, Geoffrey (TRN), ISBN X, ISBN , Brand New, Free shipping in the US This textbook introduces the formal and conceptual foundations of quantum field Rating: % positive. 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.

Relativistic quantum mechanics (Lecture notes - a.a. /19) Fiorenzo Bastianelli 1 Introduction The Schr odinger equation is a wave equation that describes the quantum mechanics of non-relativistic particles. The attempts to generalize it to the relativistic case led to the discovery of various wave equations (Klein-Gordon, Dirac, Maxwell File Size: KB. Quantum Mechanics Fundamental Principles and Applications. This book places emphasis on learning new theoretical methods applied to old non-relativistic ideas, with a eye to what will be required in relativistic field theory and particle physics.

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books on advanced quantum mechanics and field theory, Franz Gross determined that while established books were outdated, newer titles tended to focus on recent developments and disregard the basics. Relativistic Quantum Mechanics and Field Theory fills this striking gap in the field. 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.".

Relativistic Quantum Mechanics begins with the Klein-Gordon equation describing its features and motivating the need for a correct relativistic equation for the electron.

It then introduces the Dirac equation by linearizing the second order relativistic equation which reveals the spin, spin magnetic moment and the spin-orbit coupling of the 5/5(1). As the title says, the book is about RELATIVISTIC QUANTUM MECHANICS. Everybody knows that when energies are very high we have the creation of new particles (E=mc^2).

If iyou are looking for QUANTUM FIELD THEORY, you do not have to go far: just read the correspondent volume at the same collection. A very good by: 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 gives a thorough and detailed treatment of the subject, beginning with the classification of particles, the Klein-Gordon equation and the Dirac by: In this chapter we study the quantum theory of relativistic particles. In a particle accelerator we are interested in, for example, the interactions of highly energetic electrons so the need to combine relativity and quantum mechanics is pressing.

Gross provides complete, up-to-date coverage of both elementary and advanced topics Cited by: His relativistic wave equation for the electron was the first successful attack on the problem of relativistic quantum mechanics. Dirac founded quantum field theory with his reinterpretation of the Dirac equation as a many-body equation, which predicted the existence of antimatter and matter-antimatter by: 4.

It describes QED as a program, rather than a closed theory, that rests on the theory of the quantum Maxwellian field interacting with given (external) classical sources of radiation and on the relativistic quantum mechanics of electrons interacting with a given (external) classical electromagnetic field.

of relativistic quantum mechanics. Out of this analysis will emerge the Klein-Gordon and Dirac equations, and the concept of quantum mechanical spin. This introduction prepares the way for the construction of relativistic quantum ﬁeld theories, aspects touched upon in our study of the quantum mechanics of the EM ﬁeld.

The main objective of this book is to address the needs of postgraduate students and research scholars about the intricacies of relativistic quantum mechanics. Addresses the gap between relativistic treatment of the quantum mechanics of particles using field theory and single particle relativistic dynamics using conventional wave equations.

theoretical courses of classical mechanics, classical electrodynamics, and non-relativistic quantum mechanics. This book is divided into three chapters and an appendix. The ﬁrst chap-ter presents the Klein-Gordon theory for the relativistic description of spin-0 particles.

As mentioned above, the focus lies on the possibilities and limits. Note: Citations are based on reference standards.

Relativistic extension of quantum mechanics will extend naturally into quantum field theory and on a beginner level, my suggestions would be to follow the book by Lewis H.

Ryder and Mark Srednicki. A more theoretical approach can be found in the book named "Quantum. Description: Relativistic Quantum Mechanics begins with the Klein-Gordon equation describing its features and motivating the need for a correct relativistic equation for the electron.

It then introduces the Dirac equation by linearizing the second order relativistic equation which reveals the spin, spin magnetic moment and the spin-orbit coupling of the electron. 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.

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.

I personally recommend “Relativistic Quantum Mechanics by J.D Bjorken and S.D Drell” you can also read “Quantum field Theory by C.

Itzykson and J.B Zuber” if you are beginner than first you should start with very simple and great book “Conce.Electrons can be used to determine the behaviour of surface plasmons and also to look at electronic transitions.

For these and many other reasons, an understanding of the quantum theory of scattering is of key importance for a theoretical physicist. Therefore in this chapter we develop relativistic scattering theory from scratch.
