The noisy oscillator: the first 100 years, from Einstein until now

This ebook includes entire descriptions of stochastic methods defined by means of underdamped and overdamped oscillator equations with additive and multiplicative random forcing. The latter is linked to random frequency or random damping. The insurance contains descriptions of varied new phenomena came upon within the final hundred years because the rationalization of Brownian movement by means of Einstein, Smoluchovski and Langevin, corresponding to the shift of strong issues, noise-enhanced balance, stochastic resonance, resonant activation, and stabilization of metastable states.

Semiclassical theory of mesoscopic quantum systems

This e-book describes manifestations of classical dynamics and chaos within the quantum houses of mesoscopic structures. over the last twenty years mesoscopic physics has developed right into a quickly progressing and interesting interdisciplinary box of physics. the 1st a part of the publication offers with integrable and chaotic classical dynamics with specific emphasis at the semiclassical description of spectral correlations, thermodynamic houses and linear reaction features.

Quantum Mechanics, 2nd Edition

Presents a scientific and orderly improvement of the total of quantum mechanics by way of its functions to atomic, nuclear, particle, and strong nation physics.

Ground-state potential energy curves of the N2 molecule as described by the STO-3G basis set. The QECCSD, ECCSD, QECCSD(TQ), and ECCSD(TQ) calculations were performed using the ECC theory of Arponen and Bishop. the QECCSD(TQ) potential energy curve for the DZ N2 molecule is located above the full CI curve and the QECCSD(TQ) approach completely eliminates the unphysical humps on the CR-CCSD(T) and CR-CCSD(TQ) curves, obtained with the CCSD values of T1 and T2 . , CR-CC) calculations. All of this is very encouraging, since the QECCSD(TQ) method is a relatively inexpensive singlereference approach employing the spin-adapted RHF reference.

As in the case of the MBS S4 model, we examined the quality of the T1 and T2 clusters obtained in the CCSD and various ECC calculations for N2 by computing the expectation values of the Hamiltonian, designated by X , where X = CCSD, BECCSD, QECCSD, and ECCSD, with the normalized CCSD-like wave functions (X) Ψ0(X) = N (X) eT1 (X) +T2 |Φ , X = CCSD, BECCSD, QECCSD, ECCSD, (62) where T1(X) and T2(X) (X = CCSD, BECCSD, QECCSD, ECCSD) are the T1 and T2 cluster components obtained with the CCSD, BECCSD, QECCSD, and complete ECCSD meth(X) † (X) † (X) (X) ods, respectively, and N (X) = Φ|e(T1 ) +(T2 ) eT1 +T2 |Φ −1/2 are the corresponding normalization factors (see Table 3).

Thus, in order to develop practical methods based on the MMCC theory defined by equation (72), we must first truncate the manybody expansions for corrections δ0(A) or δ0(CCSD) at some, preferably low, excitation level mB satisfying mA < mB < N . This leads to the MMCC(mA , mB ) schemes, in which we calculate the energy as follows [11–13,30–32,74,75]: (MMCC) E0 (A) where E0 (A) (mA , mB ) = E0 + δ0 (mA , mB ), (82) is the energy obtained with the standard CC method A and mB n δ0 (mA , mB ) = n=mA +1 k=mA +1 Ψ0 |Cn−k (mA )Mk (mA )|Φ Ψ0 |eT (A) |Φ (83) is the relevant MMCC correction.
