This volume contains the proceedings of the conference on Spectral and Scattering Theory for Quantum Magnetic Systems, which took place at CIRM, Luminy, France, in July 2008. The main purpose of this conference was to bring together a number of specialists in the mathematical modelling of magnetic phenomena in quantum mechanics, to mark the recent progress as well as to outline the future development in this area. This volume contains original results presented by some of the invited speakers and surveys on recent advances in the mathematical theory of quantum magnetic Hamiltonians. Most of the talks at the conference, as well as the articles in this volume, have been dedicated to one of the following topics: Spectral and scattering theory for magnetic Schrodinger operators; Magnetic Pauli and Dirac operators; Magnetic operators on manifolds; Microlocal analysis of magnetic Hamiltonians; Random Schrodinger operators and quantum Hall effect; Ginsburg - Landau equation, supraconductivity, magnetic bottles; Bose - Einstein condensate, Gross - Pitaevski equation; and, Magnetic Lieb - Thirring inequalities, stability of matter.

A new edition of the New York Times bestseller—now a three-part Nova special: a fascinating and thought-provoking journey through the mysteries of space, time, and matter. Now with a new preface (not in any other edition) that will review the enormous public reception of the relatively obscure string theory—made possible by this book and an increased number of adherents amongst physicists—The Elegant Universe "sets a standard that will be hard to beat" (New York Times Book Review). Brian Greene, one of the world's leading string theorists, peels away the layers of mystery surrounding string theory to reveal a universe that consists of eleven dimensions, where the fabric of space tears and repairs itself, and all matter—from the smallest quarks to the most gargantuan supernovas—is generated by the vibrations of microscopically tiny loops of energy.

Today physicists and mathematicians throughout the world are feverishly working on one of the most ambitious theories ever proposed: superstring theory. String theory, as it is often called, is the key to the Unified Field Theory that eluded Einstein for more than thirty years. Finally, the century-old antagonism between the large and the small-General Relativity and Quantum Theory-is resolved. String theory proclaims that all of the wondrous happenings in the universe, from the frantic dancing of subatomic quarks to the majestic swirling of heavenly galaxies, are reflections of one grand physical principle and manifestations of one single entity: microscopically tiny vibrating loops of energy, a billionth of a billionth the size of an atom. In this brilliantly articulated and refreshingly clear book, Greene relates the scientific story and the human struggle behind twentieth-century physics' search for a theory of everything.

Through the masterful use of metaphor and analogy, The Elegant Universe makes some of the most sophisticated concepts ever contemplated viscerally accessible and thoroughly entertaining, bringing us closer than ever to understanding how the universe works.
