Did you ever wonder 'What the heck is a photon, anyway?' Well, this question quickly gets you into pretty deep waters. Not only do you need to understand Maxwell's equations and quantum mechanics, you need to understand how they fit together into a marvelous theory called 'quantum electrodynamics'. These webpages won't teach you quantum electrodynamics. But they'll give you a little nudge in the right direction.

These notes introduce some of the basic mathematical and physical tools necessary for theoretical investigations into the thermodynamics properties of light in cavities. It will also be useful for the research teams entering this field of science.

Based on a course of lectures delivered at Columbia University by Nobel laureate H. A. Lorentz, this texte remains remarkably modern. Its outstanding discussion of general principles and experimental facts keep it vital.

The aim of molecular dynamics is to model the detailed microscopic dynamical behavior of many different types of systems. Molecular dynamics is a technique to investigate equilibrium and transport properties of many–body systems.

A broad overview of the basic physical processes that govern the interaction between the light and semiconductor. The text shows the richness of the topic and shows the thread connecting the original research of the sixties and today's literature.
