This is the first book on the subject of room-temperature superconductivity. The main purpose of the book is twofold. First, to show that, under suitable conditions, superconductivity can occur above . . . . .
The GWapproximation to the formally exact many-body perturbation
theory has been applied successfully to materials for several decades. Since the
practical calculations are extremely cumbersome, the . . . . .
In this thesis we present a new formalism to study linear and non-linear response in extended systems. Our approach is based on real-time solution of an effective Schr"odinger equation. The coup . . . . .
The real-world properties of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) - the strongly-interacting piece of the Standard Model - are dominated by two emergent phenomena: confinement; namely, the theory's elemen . . . . .
In this paper the review progress in the density functional theory of time dependent phenomena. Contents: Introduction; fundamentals; exact conditions; linear response; approximated functionals; appli . . . . .
Since the addition of applied forces must take into account the line of action, applied forces do not belong to a vector space. Screw theory removes this geometrical limitation and solves other me . . . . .

These informal lecture notes describe the progress in semiconductor spintronics in a historic perspective as well as in a comparison to achievements of spintronics of ferromagnetic metals. After outli . . . . .
First principles calculations of bandstructures of crystals are usually based on one-particle theories where the electrons are assumed to move in some effective potential. The most commonly used metho . . . . .
The impulsive excitation and phase-sensitive detection of coherent phonons and phonon-polaritons provide a detailed insight into the dynamical properties of matter. The experiments are based on optica . . . . .
