About this product
- DescriptionStarting from the earlier tions of stationary action principles, these tutorial tes shows how Schwinger's Quantum Action Principle descended from Dirac's formulation, which independently led Feynman to his path-integral formulation of quantum mechanics. Part I brings out in more detail the connection between the two formulations, and applications are discussed. Then, the Keldysh-Schwinger time-cycle method of extracting matrix elements is described. Part II will discuss the variational formulation of quantum electrodynamics and the development of source theory.
- Author BiographyProfessor Kimball Milton is the George Lynn Cross Research Professor of Physics at the University of Oklahoma. Kim Milton, a student of Julian Schwinger, studies in particular vacuum energy phenomena (the Casimir effect) in contexts ranging from cosmological through hadronic to condensed matter systems. He is the author, together with J Mehra of Climbing the Mountain: The Scientific Biography of Julian Schwinger Oxford University Press, 2000.
