Boris A. Arbuzov: Non-perturbative Effective Interactions in the Standard Model
This monograph is devoted to the nonperturbative dynamics in the Standard Model (SM), the basic theory of allfundamental interactions in nature except gravity. The Standard Model is divided into …
Igor Olegovich Cherednikov & Tom Mertens: Wilson Lines in Quantum Field Theory
Wilson lines (also known as gauge links or eikonal lines) can be introduced in any gauge field theory. Although the concept of the Wilson exponentials finds an enormously wide range of applications i …
Alexander S. Holevo: Quantum Systems, Channels, Information
Written by one of the founding fathers of Quantum Information, this book gives an accessible (albeit mathematically rigorous), self-contained introduction to quantum information theory. The central r …
