Harmonic Oscillators and Two-by-two Matrices in Symmetry Problems in Physics
by Young Suh Kim (ed.)
Publisher: MDPI AG 2017
Number of pages: 370
With a degree of exaggeration, modern physics is the physics of harmonic oscillators and two-by-two matrices. Indeed, they constitute the basic language for the symmetry problems in physics, and thus the main theme of this journal. This book could serve to illustrate the important aspect of symmetry problems in physics.

The reason for my choosing the partial differential equations as the subject for these lectures is my wish to inspire in my audience a love for Mathematics. I give a brief historical account of the application of Mathematics to natural phenomena.

The authors review the method of differential equations for the evaluation of D-dimensionally regulated Feynman integrals. After dealing with the technique, we discuss its application in the context of corrections to the photon propagator in QED.

This book treats the Atiyah-Singer index theorem using the heat equation, which gives a local formula for the index of any elliptic complex. Heat equation methods are also used to discuss Lefschetz fixed point formulas and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem.
