**Harmonic Oscillators and Two-by-two Matrices in Symmetry Problems in Physics**

by Young Suh Kim (ed.)

**Publisher**: MDPI AG 2017**ISBN-13**: 9783038425014**Number of pages**: 370

**Description**:

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.
