Spinning Particles - Semiclassics and Spectral Statistics

The publication offers with semiclassical equipment for structures with spin, particularly tools regarding hint formulae and torus quantisation and their functions within the concept of quantum chaos, e. g. the characterisation of spectral correlations. The theoretical instruments built right here not just have rapid purposes within the thought of quantum chaos - that's the second one concentration of the e-book - but additionally in atomic and mesoscopic physics.

This feature enabled statistically optimal estimation of the path coefficients that had been desired for path analysis since Wright (1921) first described the procedure. Fitting path models has become one of the most widespread uses of SEM. The SEM model also subsumed the higher-order factor model, in which correlations among the factor scores of a classical (Thurstone) factor model are, in turn, subjected to 18 L. V. Jones and D. Thissen factor analysis. Thurstone (1947) had described the concept, and Schmid and Leiman (1957) had developed a multi-stage estimation procedure that involved repeated applications of then-current methods of factor extraction.
