A la recherche du réel by Bernard D'Espagnat

By Bernard D'Espagnat

Qu'est-ce que los angeles réalité? 
Le physicien Bernard d'Espagnat aborde ici l. a. query du "réel", défendant l'idée qu'il serait intellectuellement discutable de prétendre los angeles traiter sans tenir compte des leçons de l. a. body moderne. Il apporte l'éclairage de l. a. philosophie classique, et celui de l. a. technology contemporaine. Ce livre est donc une brillante initiation aux problématiques de los angeles body, technology qui entre toutes a connu récemment les plus grands bouleversements.

"Alors que j'étais étudiant à l'École centrale, un ami m'offrit À los angeles recherche du réel, qui  venait de paraître. Je le dévorais aussitôt en annotant chacune de ses pages." Etienne Klein.

The full Hamiltonian HD will not have a spectral gap, still the eigenvalues of the symbol HD (q, p) are separated uniformly over phase space by a gap, inf (q,p)∈R6 E+ (q, p) − E− (q, p) = 2m > 0 . Naively one might hope that the subspaces P±0 H which we identified with electrons and positrons are approximately invariant also under the dynamics generated by HD . But not only that the space-adiabatic theory as developed up to now is not applicable anymore, it turns out that this naive hope is actually wrong.

In addition we also derive the first order corrections to the semiclassical equations of motion of a Dirac particle including back-reaction of spin onto the translational dynamics. 2, adiabatic decoupling for the molecular Hamiltonian can only hold after imposing suitable energy cutoffs. 2 we briefly discuss how to modify the general theory such that also the Born-Oppenheimer approximation is covered and calculate the effective Hamiltonian including second order corrections. Our results generalize the expression for the effective Hamiltonian for the Born-Oppenheimer approximation found by Littlejohn and Weigert [LiWe1 ].
