Adiabatic quantum transport by Avron J.E.

By Avron J.E.

The adiabatic quantum shipping in multiply hooked up structures is tested. The platforms thought of have a number of holes, frequently 3 or extra, threaded via self sustaining flux tubes, the delivery houses of that are defined via matrix-valued capabilities of the fluxes. the most subject matter is the differential-geometric interpretation of Kubo's formulation as curvatures. due to this interpretation, and since flux area will be pointed out with the multitorus, the adiabatic conductances have topological value, relating to the 1st Chern personality. particularly, they've got quantized averages. The authors describe a number of periods of quantum Hamiltonians that describe multiply hooked up platforms and examine their uncomplicated homes. They be aware of types that decrease to the examine of finite-dimensional matrices. specifically, the aid of the "free-electron" Schrödinger operator, on a community of skinny wires, to a matrix challenge is defined intimately. The authors outline "loop currents" and examine their houses and their dependence at the selection of flux tubes. They introduce a mode of topological category of networks based on their shipping. This ends up in the research of point crossings and to the organization of "charges" with crossing issues. Networks made with 3 equilateral triangles are investigated and labeled, either numerically and analytically. lots of those networks prove to have nontrivial topological delivery houses for either the free-electron and the tight-binding types. The authors finish with a few open difficulties and questions.

Foundations of Quantum Mechanics I

This e-book is the 1st quantity of a two-volume paintings at the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, and is meant as a brand new version of the author's e-book Die Grundlagen der Quantenmechanik [37] which used to be released in 1954. during this two-volume paintings we'll search to procure a much better formula of the translation of quantum mechanics in line with experiments.
