by - Zuckschwerdt Publishers
A discussion of several aspects of our present understanding of quantum mechanics. The emphasis is put on the special correlations that this theory makes possible: they are forbidden by very general arguments based on realism and local causality.

Book cover: Lectures on the Quantum Hall EffectLectures on the Quantum Hall Effect
by - University of Cambridge
These lectures describe the basic theoretical structures underlying the quantum Hall effect. The focus is on the interplay between microscopic wavefunctions, long-distance effective Chern-Simons theories, and the modes which live on the boundary.
