Modern Physics: Introduction to Statistical Mechanics, Relativity, and Quantum Physics (Unitext for Physics) (Paperback)
Luca Salasnich is Full Professor of Condensed Matter Theory at the Department of Physics and Astronomy "Galileo Galilei," University of Padova, Italy. He was awarded an M.Sc. in Physics by the University of Padova in 1991, and his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics by the University of Florence in 1995. His fields of research are condensed matter theory and statistical physics, in particular nonlinear phenomena and macroscopic quantum effects (like superfluidity and superconductivity) in ultra-cold atomic gases and other many-body systems. He has written more than 200 peer-reviewed scientific papers in international journals, with over 4700 citations.
