|Nonequilibrium Dynamics of Collective Excitations in Quantum Materials|
by Edoardo Baldini
ISBN: 3030084698. Order this book online from Springer. This book explores the nonequilibrium dynamics of collective excitations in quantum materials through the framework of ultrafast optical spectroscopy. Special emphasis is given to the relationship between collective modes and fundamental materials properties, instabilities, and phase transitions.

|Classical Relativistic Many-Body Dynamics|
by Matthew A. Trump and W. C. SchieveKluwer Academic Publishers, Dordrecht, The Netherlands, 1999
Hardcover–365 pp. 92 illustrations
ISBN: 079235737X. Order this book online from Amazon.com. Find out more about this book. The first book that explains in detail the world-time theory of motion for relativistic particles with mutual interaction. Learn how field theory is essentially limited to one-body motion, and how a 1941 classical model of pair annihilation may at last allow the dynamical description of systems of two or more particles. Several experimental tests are suggested. This book is chock-full of new research opportunities for graduate students and researchers into relativity.
|Fully Chaotic Maps and Broken Time Symmetry|
