This monograph is dedicated to the derivation and analysis of fluid models occurring in plasma physics. It focuses on models involving quasi-neutrality approximation, problems related to laser propagation in a plasma, and coupling plasma waves and electromagnetic waves. Applied mathematicians will find a stimulating introduction to the world of plasma physics and a few open problems that are mathematically rich. Physicists who may be overwhelmed by the abundance of models and uncertain of their underlying assumptions will find basic mathematical properties of the related systems of partial differential equations. A planned second volume will be devoted to kinetic models. First and foremost, this book mathematically derives certain common fluid models from more general models. Although some of these derivations may be well known to physicists, it is important to highlight the assumptions underlying the derivations and to realize that some seemingly simple approximations turn out to be more complicated than they look. Such approximations are justified using asymptotic analysis wherever possible. Furthermore, efficient simulations of multi-dimensional models require precise statements of the related systems of partial differential equations along with appropriate boundary conditions. Some mathematical properties of these systems are presented which offer hints to those using numerical methods, although numerics is not the primary focus of the book.

This two-volume set can be naturally divided into two semester courses, and contains a full modern graduate course in quantum physics. The idea is to teach graduate students how to practically use quantum physics and theory, presenting the fundamental knowledge, and gradually moving on to applications, including atomic, nuclear and solid state physics, as well as modern subfields, such as quantum chaos and quantum entanglement. The book starts with basic quantum problems, which do not require full quantum formalism but allow the student to gain the necessary experience and elements of quantum thinking. Only then does the fundamental Schrodinger equation appear. The author has included topics that are not usually covered in standard textbooks and has written the book in such a way that every topic contains varying layers of difficulty, so that the instructor can decide where to stop. Although supplementary sources are not required, "Further reading" is given for each chapter, including references to scientific journals and publications, and a glossary is also provided. Problems and solutions are integrated throughout the text.

What kind of sense can we make out of living in a world that has both sex and quantum physics? Because, in fact, there is no question that we live in a world that has both. Both the messiness of daily life with all its desires, emotions, thoughts and uncertainties, and also the elegant mathematical models of strange attractors, quantum foam, and multiple dimensions. Sex and Quantum Physics Volume 1: Tantic Yogi Tells All is a story about almost everything. Romp with a tantric yogi's whimsical cartoons throughthe body, mind, and sexual circuits of humans. Explore dark energy, evolution, pain, pleasure and why it feels so good to evolve with the universe. Tantric Yogi Tells All is an old/new paradigm, an old/new way of thinking about our selves and how we live in the world. Simply written, with 24 exercises and over 300 illustrations, Volume 1 is a practical course on beginners tantra yoga exercises, exercises that not only immediately reduce stress and pain, but improve muscle tone while evolving our energy and our awareness. Drawing together ancient traditions, yoga body awareness, and the latest discoveries of science, Sex and Quantum Physics Volume 1 offers tools for a richer evolution of everything in your life (yes, even sex!).

Modern Plasma Physics: Volume 1, Physical Kinetics of Turbulent Plasmas

This three-volume series presents the ideas, models and approaches essential to understanding plasma dynamics and self-organization for researchers and graduate students in plasma physics, controlled fusion and related fields such as plasma astrophysics. Volume I develops the physical kinetics of plasma turbulence through a focus on quasi-particle models and dynamics. It discusses the essential physics concepts and theoretical methods for describing weak and strong fluid and phase space turbulence in plasma systems far from equilibrium. The book connects the traditionally 'plasma' topic of weak or wave turbulence theory to more familiar fluid turbulence theory, and extends both to the realm of collisionless phase space turbulence. This gives readers a deeper understanding of these related fields, and builds a foundation for future applications to multi-scale processes of self-organization in tokamaks and other confined plasmas. This book emphasizes the conceptual foundations and physical intuition underpinnings of plasma turbulence theory.

This book is an entry-level undergraduate physics textbook, which is suitable for physics, pre-engineering, pre-medical, pre-law, biotechnology or general science students. The approach adopted in this text places emphasis on simplifying abstract concepts by using short derivations of important equations as well as introducing problem-solving strategies that will help the reader to learn quickly to apply simple concepts to solve complex problems in general physics. To address any deficiency in mathematical knowledge needed to succeed in a physics course, Chapter Zero reviews important mathematics concepts that are generally encountered in physics. In addition, each chapter contains several different solved problems in different areas. Additional practice problems are also included in each chapter.

These two volumes collect forty-four selected papers from the scientific contributions presented at the Third European Workshop on Quantum Systems in Chemistry and Physics, held in Granada (Spain), April 19–22, 1998. Ninety-nine scientists from Bulgaria, Columbia, Cuba, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, United Ki- dom, Uruguay and Venezuela attended the workshop, discussing the state of the art, new trends, and future evolution of the methods and applications. The workshop took place at the ‘Los Alixares’ Hotel, where 45 lectures were given by prominent members of the scientific community; in addition, 49 posters were presented in two very animated sessions. The success of this workshop is due, without doubt, to the excellent tradition initiated at the previous workshops, organised by Prof. R. McWeeny in San Miniato, Pisa (Italy), 1996, and by Prof. S. Wilson in Oxford (United Kingdom), 1997. These workshops create occasions for meetings and disc- sions on the current state of the art, emerging methods and applications and new trends in this area of science. The three meetings were sponsored and partially supported by the European Union (EU) in the frame of the Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) chemistry actions.
