In this book, we discuss the path integral quantization and the stochastic quantization of classical mechanics and classical field theory. For the description of the classical theory, we have two methods, one based on the Lagrangian formalism and the other based on the Hamiltonian formal ism. The Harniltonian formalisni is derived from the Lagrangian formalism. In the standard formalism of quantum mechanics, we usually make use of the Hamiltonian formalism. This fact originates from the following circumstance which dates back to the birth of quantum mechanics. The first formalism of quantum mechanics is Schrodinger's wave mechan ics. In this approach, we regard the Hamilton Jacobi equation of analytical mechanics as the Eikonal equation of "geometrical mechanics". Bsed on the optical analogy, we obtain the Schrodinger equation as a result of the inverse of the Eikonal approximation to the Hamilton Jacobi equation, and thus we arrive at "wave mechanics" . The second formalism of quantum mechanics is Heisenberg's "matrix me chanics". In this approach, we arrive at the Heisenberg equation of motion frorn consideration of the consistency of the Ritz combination principle, the Bohr quantization condition and the Fourier analysis of a physical quantity. These two forrnalisrns make up the Hamiltonian formalism of quantum me chanics.

This is the definitive treatise on the fundamentals of statistical mechanics. A concise exposition of classical statistical mechanics is followed by a thorough elucidation of quantum statistical mechanics: postulates, theorems, statistical ensembles, changes in quantum mechanical systems with time, and more. The final two chapters discuss applications of statistical mechanics to thermodynamic behavior. 1930 edition.

Quantum field theory is the application of quantum mechanics to systems with infinitely many degrees of freedom. This 2007 textbook presents quantum field theoretical applications to systems out of equilibrium. It introduces the real-time approach to non-equilibrium statistical mechanics and the quantum field theory of non-equilibrium states in general. It offers two ways of learning how to study non-equilibrium states of many-body systems: the mathematical canonical way and an easy intuitive way using Feynman diagrams. The latter provides an easy introduction to the powerful functional methods of field theory, and the use of Feynman diagrams to study classical stochastic dynamics is considered in detail. The developed real-time technique is applied to study numerous phenomena in many-body systems. Complete with numerous exercises to aid self-study, this textbook is suitable for graduate students in statistical mechanics and condensed matter physics.

Der Goldstein geh?rt zu den Standardwerken f?r die Vorlesung in Klassischer Mechanik, die Pflichtvorlesung und Teil des Theorie-Lehrplans jedes Physik-Studienganges ist. Der von Beginn an hohe mathematische Anspruch der theoretischen Physik, der gerade in der ersten Vorlesung viele ?berraschend trifft, l?sst zwei Gruppen von Studierenden entstehen: jenen, die mathematisch und theoretisch begabt sind, sich evtl. sp?ter zur theoretischen Physik hin orientieren und mit der Vorlesung wenig Probleme haben; und jenen, die zwar z.B. experimentell begabt sind, indes Schwierigkeiten haben, den abstrakten Formalismus auf die Physik etwa des Praktikums zu ?bertragen. Erstere Gruppe nutzt f?r die theoretische Physik Lehrb?cher, die hohes Niveau voraussetzen und mathematisch streng die Formeln herleiten; letztere Gruppe ben?tigt Werke, welche die Formeln ausf?hrlicher erkl?ren und mit vielen Beispielen illustrieren. In der ersteren Gruppe haben sich Klassiker wie "Jackson: Classical Electrodynamics" etabliert, die seit Jahrzehnten sowohl von Studenten gelobt als auch von Dozenten empfohlen werden. Der "Goldstein" geh?rt in diese Kategorie. F?r diese aktuelle Ausgabe haben Charles Poole und John Safko die Texte ?berarbeitet und neueste Themen, Anwendungen und Notationen eingearbeitet, womit sie den Anforderungen an einen modernen Lehrstoff auf diesem Gebiet gerecht werden. Neu aufgenommene numerische ?bungen bef?higen die Studenten, Physikprobleme computergest?tzt zu l?sen. Mathematische Techniken werden detailliert eingef?hrt, so da? der Text auch f?r Studenten ohne den entsprechenden Hintergrund der Theoretischen Mechanik verst?ndlich ist. Bis zu 40 ?bungsaufgaben am Ende jedes Kapitels!

Immer mehr deutsche Hochschulen folgen dem amerikanischen Vorbild und bieten Einführungskurse zur Modernen Physik an. Diese Kurse vermitteln die spannenden Erkenntnisse der Physik der letzten 100 Jahre, die zu bahnbrechenden Veränderungen geführt haben. Das Standardwerk zu diesen Kursen ist "Modern Physics" von Paul A. Tipler, Autor des berühmten Werkes "Physik", und Ralph A. Llewellyn. Die Autoren zeigen, dass man ein tief gehendes Verständnis der Modernen Physik vermitteln kann, ohne einen schwerfälligen mathematischen Apparat bemühen zu müssen. Mit über 500 Abbildungen, Zitaten berühmter Physiker sowie mit ca. 700 sorgfältig ausgewählten Übungsaufgaben und über das Internet zugänglichen Ergänzungen wurde "Modern Physics" in den USA zu einem der beliebtesten Lehrbücher zu diesem Thema.

"Dies ist kein Lehrbuch der theoretischen Physik, auch kein Kompendium der Physikgeschichte ... , vielmehr eine recht anspruchsvolle Sammlung historischer Miniaturen zur Vergangenheit der theoretischen Physik - ihrer "Sternstunden", wenn man so will. Frei vom Zwang, etwas Erschöpfendes vorlegen zu müssen, gelingt dem Autor etwas Seltenes: einen "lebendigen" Zugang zum Ideengebäude der modernen Physik freizulegen, ... zu zeigen, wie Physik in praxi entsteht... Als Vehikel seiner Absichten dienen dem Autor geschichtliche Fallstudien, insgesamt sieben an der Zahl. Aus ihnen extrahiert er das seiner Meinung nach Lehrhafte, dabei bestrebt, mathematische Anachronismen womöglich zu vermeiden... Als Student hätte ich mir diese gescheiten Essays zum Werden unserer heutigen physikalischen Weltsicht gewünscht. Sie sind originell, didaktisch klug und genieren sich auch nicht, von der Faszination zu sprechen, die ... von der Physik ausgeht. Unnötig darauf hinzuweisen, das sie ein gründliches "konventionelles" Studium weder ersetzen wollen noch können, sie vermögen aber, dazu zu ermuntern." #Astronomische Nachrichten (zur englischen Ausgabe)#1
