 Summary

This book provides a selfcontained and systematic introduction to classical electron theory and its quantization, nonrelativistic quantum electrodynamics. The first half of the book covers the classical theory. It discusses the welldefined Abraham model of extended charges in interaction with the electromagnetic field, and gives a study of the effective dynamics of charges under the condition that, on the scale given by the size of the charge distribution, they are far apart and the applied potentials vary slowly. The second half covers the quantum theory, leading to a coherent presentation of nonrelativistic quantum electrodynamics. Topics discussed include nonperturbative properties of the basic Hamiltonian, the structure of resonances, the relaxation to the ground state through emission of photons, the nonperturbative derivation of the gfactor of the electron and the stability of matter. First released in 2004, this title has been reissued as an Open Access publication on Cambridge Core.

 Summary

This book deals with one of the fundamental problems of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics: the derivation of large scale dynamics from microscopic models consisting of a very large number of interacting particles. In this monograph the author treats various macroscopic equations, in particular the Boltzmann equation for a low density fluid of hard spheres and the nonlinear diffusion equation for stochastic lattice gases. Also discussed are Gaussian fluctuations around the large scale deterministic motion, and the dynamics of tracer particles. The book addresses both researchers and students. Much of the material is presented here for the first time in book form.
