The aim and motivation of those lectures might be summarized within the following questions: • what's the flooring country (and its homes) of dense topic? • what's the topic composition of a compact superstar? the 2 questions are, after all, strongly coupled to one another. reckoning on your standpoint, you could both reflect on the ?rst because the major query and the second one thus or program of the ?rst, or vice versa. while you're attracted to basic questions in particle physics you could take the previous standpoint: you ask the query what occurs to subject should you squeeze it a growing number of. This results in primary questions simply because at a few point of suf?cient squeezing you are expecting to arrive the purpose the place the elemental levels of freedom and their interactions turn into vital. that's, at some point soon you are going to achieve a sort of subject the place no longer molecules or atoms, however the elements of an atom, particularly neutrons, protons, and electrons, are the suitable levels of freedom.

The possibilities for doing scattering experiments at synchrotron and neutron amenities have grown swiftly lately and are set to proceed to take action into the foreseeable destiny. this article offers a uncomplicated realizing of the way those thoughts permit the constitution and dynamics of fabrics to be studied on the atomic and molecular point.
This publication is devoted to Professor Leonid V Keldysh. His outstanding contributions to condensed subject physics comprise the Franz-Keldysh influence, an electron-hole liquid, the nonequilibrium (Keldysh) diagram procedure, Bose-Einstein condensation (of excitons) and a ``metal-dielectric'' transition, acoustically-induced superlattices, multi-photon transitions and effect ionization in solids.
This publication presents a bridge among the elemental ideas of physics discovered as an undergraduate and the talents and data required for complicated learn and examine within the fascinating box of atomic physics. The textual content is prepared in a different and flexible layout --- as a set of difficulties, tricks, specific ideas, and in-depth tutorials.
