Pauli Exclusion Principle : Origin, Verifications and Applications (Hardcover) (Ilya G. Kaplan)
About this item
This is the first comprehensive scientific book devoted solely to the Pauli Exclusion Principle. Beginning with an introduction and historical overview, the book goes on to cover modern studies of the Pauli Exclusion Principle and its numerous applications in physics and chemistry.
The foundations of the principle and its applications (e.g. methods of finding of the Pauli-allowed states in atomic and molecular spectroscopy) are discussed in the book. Special attention is devoted to experimental verifications of the possible violations of the Pauli Exclusion Principle, and the existing attempts to present theoretical proofs of the principle and the spin-statistics connections. The last chapter is devoted to the deviations from the Fermi and Bose statistics in the case of composite particles and to the statistics of the quasiparticles in a periodical lattice which obey the modified parafermi statistics. Such exotic objects as the anyons and fractional statistics are also discussed.
