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 book studies the role played by special function theory in the formalism of mathematical physics. It demonstrates that special functions which arise in mathematical models are dictated by symmetry groups admitted by the models.

This book presents classical, quantum, and statistical mechanics in an algebraic setting, thereby introducing mathematicians, physicists, and engineers to the ideas relating classical and quantum mechanics with Lie algebras and Lie groups.
