This book is, then, a timely and comprehensive guide to the essence of Casimir (and Casimir-Polder) physics that will have lasting value, serving the dual purpose of an introduction and reference to the field. While this volume is not intended to be a unified textbook, but rather a collection of largely independent chapters written by prominent. springer, Casimir effects serve as primary examples of directly observable manifestations of the nontrivial properties of quantum fields, and as such are attracting increasing interest from quantum field theorists, particle physicists, and cosmologists. Furthermore, though very weak except at short distances, Casimir forces are universal in the sense that all material objects are subject to them. During the course of his research on Casimir forces, William was a visiting student at the University of Trento and The Weizmann Institute. He also founded a Physics & Philosophy Society (PhysPhil), and was the chief organiser of St Andrews' first two Philosophy of Physics conferences and the Foundations of Casimir Physics symposium in Stockholm. of 45 results for Books: "the casimir effect" Skip to main search results Amazon Prime.

The causes of the Casimir effect are described by quantum field theory, which states that all of the various fundamental fields, such as the electromagnetic field, must be quantized at each and every point in a simplified view, a "field" in physics may be envisioned as if space were filled with interconnected vibrating balls and springs, and the strength of the field can be visualized. Forces of the Quantum Vacuum: An Introduction to Casimir Physics Simpson W.M.R., Leonhardt U. (eds.) Forces of the Quantum Vacuum presents a number of theoretical approaches to Casimir, van der Waals and Casimir Polder forces that have been fruitfully employed in mainstream research, and also reviews the experimental evidence for Casimir forces. Beginning with basic ideas in quantum mechanics and building its way to a sophisticated form of macroscopic QED, the book provides an inspiring training manual for graduate students to develop in a natural progression the ideas needed for modern theoretical research on Casimir forces. Sample Chapter(s) Foreword ( KB). Casimir Books Published. William Simpson graduated in the summer of with a PhD from this University for his work on the Casimir force, supervised by Prof Ulf Leonhardt (now at the Weizmann Institute). We are delighted to announce that his thesis, Surprises in Theoretical Casimir Physics, has been selected for publication by Springer.
