The Theory of Electrons and its Applications to the Phenomena of Light
by H. A. Lorentz
Publisher: B.G. Teubner 1916
Number of pages: 352
Based on a famous course of lectures delivered at Columbia University by Nobel laureate H. A. Lorentz, this volume remains remarkably modern. Its outstanding discussion of general principles and experimental facts keep it vital, and 109 pages of notes offer detailed examinations of the mathematics involved. Unabridged reproduction of the 1915 edition. 9 Figures.

Optics and interferometry with matter waves is the art of coherently manipulating the translational motion of particles like atoms. Coherent atom optics is an extension of techniques that were developed for manipulating internal quantum states.

Theoretical background needed to understand developments in optical research and photonic technology. Topics presented include wave propagation in anisotropic media; interaction of light with matter; quantization of the radiation field; etc.

The aim of molecular dynamics is to model the detailed microscopic dynamical behavior of many different types of systems. Molecular dynamics is a technique to investigate equilibrium and transport properties of many–body systems.
