By Reinhold A. Bertlmann

An anomaly is the failure of a classical symmetry to outlive the method of quantization and regularization. The learn of anomalies has performed a huge function in quantum box thought within the final twenty years, one that is defined in actual fact and comprehensively during this publication, the 1st textbook at the topic. the writer methods the topic via differential geometry, a mode that has bought a lot awareness in recent times, and provides specified derivations and calculations as a way to be worthy to either scholars and researchers in theoretical and mathematical physics.

Quantum Information With Continuous Variables of Atoms and Light

This e-book provides the state-of-the-art of quantum details with non-stop quantum variables. the person chapters speak about effects accomplished in QUICOV and offered on the first 5 CVQIP meetings from 2002 2006. Many world-leading scientists engaged on non-stop variables outdoor Europe additionally give a contribution to the publication.
