Deng Feng Wang was born February 8, 1965 in Chongqing City, China and died August 15, 1999 while swimming with friends in the Atlantic Ocean off Island Beach State Park, New Jersey. In his brief life, he was to have an influence far beyond his years. On August 12th 2000, The Deng Feng Wang Memorial Conference was held at his alma mater, Princeton University, during which Deng Feng's mentors, collaborators and friends presented scientific talks in a testimonial to his tremendous influence on their work and careers. The first part of this volume contains proceedings contributions from the conference, with plenary talks by Nobel Laureate Professor Phil Anderson of Princeton University and leading Condensed Matter Theorists Professor Piers Coleman of Rutgers University and Professor Christian Gruber of the University of Lausanne. Other talks, given by collaborators, friends and classmates testify to the great breadth of Deng Feng Wang's influence, with remarkable connections shown between seemingly unrelated areas in physics such as Condensed Matter Physics, Superconductivity, One-Dimensional Models, Statistical Physics, Mathematical Physics, Quantum Field Theory, High Energy Theory, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Supersymmetry, M-Theory and String Theory, in addition to such varied fields outside of physics such as Oil Drilling, Mixed Signal Circuits and Neurology. The second part of the volume consists of reprints of some of Deng Feng Wang's most important papers in the areas of Condensed Matter Physics, Statistical Physics, Magnetism, Mathematical Physics and Mathematical Finance. This volume represents a fascinating synthesis of a wide variety of topics, and ultimately points to the universality of physics and of science as a whole. As such, it represents a fitting tribute to a remarkable individual, whose tragic death will never erase his enduring influence.

This unique volume presents the scientific achievements of Nobel laureate Philip Anderson, spanning the many years of his career. In this new edition, the author has omitted some review papers as well as added over 15 of his research papers. As in the first edition, he provides an introduction to each paper by explaining the genesis of the papers or adding some personal history. The book provides a comprehensive overview of the author's work which include significant discoveries and pioneering contributions, such as his work on the Anderson model of magnetic impurities and the concept of localization; the study of spin glasses, the fluctuating valence problem and superexchange; his prediction of the existence of superfluidity in He3; his involvement in the discovery of the Josephson effect; his discovery of the “Higgs” mechanism in elementary particle physics; and so on. The new papers added to this edition include ”Pressure Broadening in the Microwave and Infrared Regions” — a condensation of most of the author's thesis; ”Ordering and Antiferromagnetism in Ferrites” — the best-known of the papers written by the author involving what are known as “frustrated” lattices; and ”Localized Magnetic States in Metals” — a paper mentioned in his Nobel Prize citation along with localization and superexchange; to name a few. A Career in Theoretical Physics is an essential source of reference for physicists, chemists, materials scientists and historians of science. It is also suitable reading for graduate students. Contents:Pressure Broadening in the Microwave and Infrared RegionsAbsence of Diffusion in Certain Random LatticesTheory of Dirty SuperconductorsLocalized Magnetic States in MetalsInfrared Catastrophe in Fermi Gases with Local Scattering PotentialsThe Fermi Glass: Theory and ExperimentPossible Consequences of Negative U Centers in Amorphous MaterialsLocalization ReduxSuggested Model for Prebiotic Evolution: The Use of ChaosPhysics: The Opening to Complexityand other papers Readership: Physicists, chemists and materials scientists. Keywords:Theoretical Physics;Spin Glasses;Localization;High Tc Superconductivity MagnetismKey Features:Comprehensive collection of many significant topics Philip Anderson has worked onSome of the papers included are now hard to find elsewhere, and each has been embellished with commentary on how they came to be writtenAnderson has also provided an interesting introduction setting out his philosophy of what is important in scienceFully updated to include significant new papers (around 120 more pages)

Der 3. Band des Lehrbuchs zur theoretischen Physik befasst sich mit der klassischen Feldtheorie – von der Elektrodynamik über die nicht-Abelschen Eichtheorien bis zur Gravitation. Das Lehrbuch vermittelt moderne Physik in stringenter und – durch viele Beispiele – anschaulicher Darstellung. Es enthält zahlreiche Aufgaben mit Lösungshinweisen oder exemplarischen, vollständigen Lösungen. Die 3. Auflage wurde im Detail überarbeitet, das Kapitel zur Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie um eine ausführliche Analyse der Schwarzschild-Lösung ergänzt.

Mit der Gründung des Corpus der antiken Ärzte an der Königlich Preußischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin am Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts wurde die Erforschung der antiken Medizin zu einem integrierenden Bestandteil der Klassischen Philologie in Deutschland. Das Corpus Medicorum Graecorum, das eine wissenschaftsgeschichtliche Brückenfunktion zwischen Natur- und Geisteswissenschaften erfüllt, war von Anfang an auf internationale Kooperation ausgerichtet und ist bis heute weltweit das wissenschaftlich maßgebende Unternehmen für die Edition antiker medizinischer Texte. In den letzten Jahrzehnten ist, vor allem im europäischen Ausland und in den USA, das Interesse an der antiken Medizin in allen ihren Facetten stark gewachsen. Die am 14. und 15. Mai 2004 von der Berlin-Brandenburgischen Akademie der Wissenschaften veranstaltete und der DFG finanzierte internationale Fachkonferenz verfolgte das Ziel, die Editionsphilologie auf diesem Gebiet zu stimulieren, auf dem sich philologische Arbeit mit medizinisch-naturwissenschaftlichen Fragestellungen verbindet. Ausgewiesene Spezialisten nahmen als Referenten an der Konferenz teil, die dem Arbeitsstellenleiter des CMG, Dr. sc. Diethard Nickel, anlässlich seines 65. Geburtstages gewidmet war.

Ein rätselhaftes Testament wird zum ersten Schritt zurück ins Leben. Keiner von ihnen hatte Beatrice Malaspina gekannt. Und doch hat die Verstorbene sie in ihrem Testament an diesen traumhaften Ort bestellt: die Villa Dante in der Nähe von Genua. Hier treffen Delia, George, Marjorie und Lucius zum ersten Mal aufeinander: vier Menschen, wie sie unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten. Doch jeder von ihnen steht an einem Wendepunkt im Leben. Die Begegnung in der Villa Dante weckt neue Hoffnungen und Träume, denn Beatrice kannte sie alle offenbar besser als sie sich selbst ... «Ein Roman, der mit großen Gefühlen und raffinierten Wendungen überzeugt.» (Bild der Frau)
