This article offers a self-contained advent to functions of loop representations and knot conception in particle physics and quantum gravity. Loop representations (and the comparable subject of knot idea) are of substantial present curiosity simply because they supply a unified area for the examine of the gauge invariant quantization of Yang-Mills theories and gravity, and recommend a promising method of the eventual unification of the 4 basic forces. this article starts with a evaluate of calculus in loop house and the basics of loop representations. It then is going directly to describe loop representations in Maxwell concept, Yang-Mills theories in addition to lattice recommendations. purposes in quantum gravity are then mentioned intimately. Following chapters flow directly to think of knot concept, the braid algebra and prolonged loop representations in quantum gravity. a last bankruptcy assesses the present prestige of the idea and issues out attainable instructions for destiny examine. This self-contained advent could be of curiosity to graduate scholars and researchers in theoretical physics and utilized arithmetic.

Understanding dissipative dynamics of open quantum platforms continues to be a problem in mathematical physics. This challenge is proper in numerous parts of basic and utilized physics. From a mathematical perspective, it consists of a wide physique of data. major development within the knowing of such structures has been made over the last decade. those books found in a self-contained means the mathematical theories enthusiastic about the modeling of such phenomena. They describe bodily suitable versions, improve their mathematical research and derive their actual implications.

In quantity I the Hamiltonian description of quantum open platforms is mentioned. This contains an creation to quantum statistical mechanics and its operator algebraic formula, modular concept, spectral research and their functions to quantum dynamical systems.

Volume II is devoted to the Markovian formalism of classical and quantum open structures. an entire exposition of noise thought, Markov tactics and stochastic differential equations, either within the classical and the quantum context, is equipped. those mathematical instruments are placed into point of view with actual motivations and applications.

Volume III is dedicated to contemporary advancements and functions. the themes mentioned comprise the non-equilibrium homes of open quantum structures, the Fermi Golden Rule and vulnerable coupling restrict, quantum irreversibility and decoherence, qualitative behaviour of quantum Markov semigroups and continuous quantum measurements.
