Ultrafast Optics by Andrew Weiner

By Andrew Weiner

A entire therapy of ultrafast optics

This ebook fills the necessity for a radical and exact account of ultrafast optics. Written by means of essentially the most preeminent researchers within the box, it sheds new gentle on know-how that has already had a progressive effect on precision frequency metrology, high-speed electric trying out, biomedical imaging, and in revealing the preliminary steps in chemical reactions.

Ultrafast Optics starts with a precis of ultrashort laser pulses and their functional functions in quite a number real-world settings. subsequent, it studies very important historical past fabric, together with an advent to Fourier sequence and Fourier transforms, and is going directly to hide:

  • rules of mode-locking>
  • Ultrafast pulse dimension equipment>
  • Dispersion and dispersion reimbursement>
  • Ultrafast nonlinear optics: moment order>
  • Ultrafast nonlinear optics: 3rd order>
  • Mode-locking: chosen complex issues>

Stationary and Time Dependent Gross-pitaevskii Equations: by Alberto Farina, Jean-claude Saut

By Alberto Farina, Jean-claude Saut

This quantity relies on a thematic application at the Gross-Pitaevskii equation, which was once held on the Wolfgang Pauli Institute in Vienna in 2006. this system consisted of 2 workshops and a one-week summer season institution. The Gross-Pitaevskii equation, an instance of a defocusing nonlinear Schrodinger equation, is a version for phenomena corresponding to the Bose-Einstein condensation of extremely chilly atomic gases, the superfluidity of Helium II, or the 'dark solitons' of Nonlinear Optics.Many fascinating and hard mathematical questions linked to the Gross-Pitaevskii equation, associated for example to the nontrivial boundary stipulations at infinity, come up evidently from its modeling points. The articles during this quantity evaluate many of the contemporary advancements within the idea of the Gross-Pitaevskii equation. particularly the next elements are thought of: modeling of superfluidity and Bose-Einstein condensation, the Cauchy challenge, the semi-classical restrict, scattering idea, lifestyles and homes of coherent touring constructions, and numerical simulations
