**Deep beauty. Understanding the quantum world through mathematical innovation**

No clinical conception has prompted extra puzzlement and confusion than quantum conception. Physics is meant to assist us to appreciate the area, yet quantum concept makes it look a really unusual position. This booklet is ready how mathematical innovation will help us achieve deeper perception into the constitution of the actual global.

**Path Integrals in Quantum Mechanics**

The most aim of this paintings is to familiarize the reader with a device, the trail vital, that gives another standpoint on quantum mechanics, yet extra very important, less than a generalized shape, has turn into the most important to a deeper realizing of quantum box concept and its purposes, which expand from particle physics to part transitions or homes of quantum gases.

In an energy loss spectrum of electrons we measure the intensity of electrons (number per second): I(AE,~) having lost the energy AE and being scattered into the direction ~; ~ means a vector with i~l = 0 the scattering angle against the primary beam. 3) with I(AE,~), is important for the quantitative v e r i f i c a t i o n of the physical assumptions of the d i e l e c t r i c theory; i t shall be sketched b r i e f l y .

The loss i n t e n s i t y at low energies indicates whether we have to do with a metal or an i n s u l a t o r : In metals the loss function starts with zero at AE = 0 and increases l i n e a r l y with AE as can be calculated from the free electron loss function, whereas in substances with a band gap the loss function is zero up to the energy at which AE equals the gap energy. j2- -? 5 0 b) 0 Graphit / \ j ~ Irn-I ~,, / I I I t 10 20 30 eV 40 Fi 9. 6a,b.
