Problems of Condensed Matter Physics: Quantum coherence phenomena in electron-hole and coupled matter-light systems

Alexei L. Ivanov and Sergei G. Tikhodeev


The book, which is dedicated to Prof. Leonid V. Keldysh on his 75th anniversary, is a collection of review papers written by experts in condensed matter physics such as V. M. Agranovich, B. L. Altshuler, E. Burstein, V. L. Ginzburg, K. Von Klitzing, P. B. Littlewood, M. Pepper, A. Pinczuk, L. P. Pitaevskii, E. I. Rashba, T. M. Rice, etc. This is a guide-book of modern condensed matter physics, where the most important and hot topics of the field are reviewed. Topics covered include spintronics and quantum computation, Bose-Einstein condensation of excitons and the excitonic insulator, electron ... More

Keywords: quantum wells and dots, microcavities, excitons, composite fermions, polaritons, spintronics, Bose-Einstein condensation, metal-dielectric transition, quantum Hall effect, quantum computation
