    Synchronized ion plasmon waves is a new view on neuron signaling

    Though the book “Quantum Nano-Plasmonics” concerns a random-phase approximation model of plasmons in metallic nanoparticles, it finds unexpected application to soft plasmonics in bio matter. A wave type plasmon-polariton mechanism of the so-called saltatory conduction in myelinated axons is proposed.

    Electronic Structure Basic Theory and Practical Methods. Second Edition

    Why do we need a second edition? An Author’s Explanation

    Why would anyone write a new edition of a book that is still selling after many years? The explanations of the basic theory in the first edition are still valid, and the methods are still the ones that are most widely used. However I still felt an update was required. Richard M. Martin, author ofElectronic Structure Basic Theory and Practical Methods. Second Edition gives his personal reasons for updating the original edition (2004)

    Fundamental vs Phenomenological: Bridging the divide in modern physics

    Horatiu Nastase, author of String Theory Methods for Condensed Matter Physics, describes the differences between reductionist and emergent approaches to modern physics and presents the duality approach to help solve uncalculable problems in strong nuclear forces, fluids and condensed matter. Is this approach the bridge between fundamental and phenomenological physics?
