By Wojciech De Roeck
This ebook collects lecture classes and seminars given on the Les Houches summer time university 2010 on "Quantum idea: From Small to massive Scales". primary quantum phenomena seem on all scales, from microscopic to macroscopic. a number of the pertinent questions comprise the onset of decoherence, the dynamics of collective modes, the impact of exterior randomness and the emergence of dissipative behaviour. Our knowing of such phenomena has been complicated through the
study of version structures and by means of the derivation and research of potent dynamics for giant platforms and over lengthy occasions. during this box, learn in mathematical physics has on a regular basis contributed effects that have been well-known as crucial within the physics group. over the past few years, the key
questions were sharpened and development on answering them has been fairly powerful. This publication experiences the cutting-edge advancements during this box and gives the mandatory historical past for destiny experiences. All chapters are written from a pedagogical viewpoint, making the ebook available to grasp and PhD scholars and researchers prepared to go into this box.
