- CRC Press 2002; US$ 41.95
In this text, John Wesson describes the science behind "the beautiful game". He ranges from qualitative and quantitative discussions of the physics of the ball in flight, through the biomechanics of the players, to the transfer market and just how good a team is. more...

A number of interrelated areas of low temperature physics are brought together in this volume. The four topics are presented as separate chapters. First is the study of the Kibble-Zurek mechanism for defect formation following quench cooling of superfluid 3He and its relation to quantum field theory. Properties of heavy fermion materials are described... more...
- Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 37.99
With over 150 alphabetically arranged entries about key scientists, concepts, discoveries, technological innovations, and learned institutions, this title traces the history of physics and astronomy, from the Renaissance. It is of interest to students, teachers, historians, scientists, and readers of popular science books. more...

Following the birth of the laser in 1960, the field of "nonlinear optics" rapidly emerged.Today, laser intensities and pulse durations are readily available, for which the concepts and approximations of traditional nonlinear optics no longer apply. In this regime of "extreme nonlinear optics," a large variety of novel and unusual... more...

Advanced spectroscopic techniques allow the probing of very small systems and very fast phenomena, conditions that can be considered "extreme" at the present status of our experimentation and knowledge. Quantum dots, nanocrystals and single molecules are examples of the former and events on the femtosecond scale examples of the latter. The... more...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2005; US$ 139.00
Deals with quantum-mechanical distribution functions and their applications in quantum optics and neutron interferometry. This book describes the phase-space representation of quantum optical phenomena, such as coherent and squeezed states. It also presents applications to interferometry, such as in beam splitters and fiber networks. more...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 139.00
Spurred by the development of high-current, high-energy relativistic electron beams, this book delves into the foundations of a device and geometry independent theoretical treatment of a large collection of radiating electron bunches. It deals with the basics of the radiation emission of a single charged particle. more...
- Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 269.00
Contains a series of tutorial essays on polarization mode dispersion (PMD) by the leading experts in the field. This book covers topics such as mathematical representation of PMD, how to properly model PMD in numerical simulations, how to accurately measure PMD, how to infer fiber properties from polarization measurements, and more. more...

Ray, wave and quantum concepts are central to diverse and seemingly incompatible models of light. Each model particularizes a specific ''manifestation'' of light, and then corresponds to adequate physical assumptions and formal approximations, whose domains of applicability are well-established. Accordingly each model comprises its own set of geometric... more...
- Springer 2007; US$ 69.99
Presents a collection of problems and exercises in environmental science. This book can be used in many courses in environmental studies especially environmental physics, energy and the environment, and atmospheric physics. The mathematical background is given in an introductory chapter. more...
