  • Transport and Fluctuations in Granular Fluidsby Andrea Puglisi

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 54.99

    This brief offers a concise presentation of granular fluids from the ápoint of view of non-equilibrium statistical physics. The emphasis is on fluctuations, which can be large in granular fluids due to the small system size (the number of grains is many orders of magnitude smaller than in molecular fluids). Firstly, readers will be introduced to... more...

  • The Physics of Amorphous Solidsby Richard Zallen

    Wiley 2008; US$ 146.00

    An in-depth study of non-crystalline solids in which the arrangement of the atoms do not have long-range order. Describes the way amorphous solids are formed, the phenomenology of the liquid-to-glass and glass- to-liquid transition, and the technological applications. Emphasizes modern approaches such as scaling, localization, and percolation. Includes... more...

  • Physics of Amorphous Metalsby Nikolai P. Kovalenko; Yuri P. Krasny; Uwe Krey

    Wiley 2008; US$ 247.00

    The discovery of bulk metallic glasses has led to a large increase in the industrial importance of amorphous metals, and this is expected to continue. This book is the first to describe the theoretical physics of amorphous metals, including the important theoretical development of the last 20 years. The renowned authors stress the universal aspects... more...

  • Localized States in Physics: Solitons and Patternsby Orazio Descalzi; Marcel Clerc; Stefania Residori; Gaetano Assanto

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 159.00

    This book covers the most interesting and active aspects of localized states in physics, including localized states in fluids, chemical reactions on surfaces, neural networks, optical systems, granular systems, population models, and Bose-Einstein condensates. more...

  • The Janus Fluidby Riccardo Fantoni

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 49.99

    The state-of-the-art in the theoretical statistical physics treatment of the Janus fluid is reported with a bridge between new research results published in journal articles and a contextual literature review. Recent Monte Carlo simulations on the Kern and Frenkel model of the Janus fluid have revealed that in the vapor phase, below the critical point,... more...

  • Transport Properties in Non-Equilibrium and Anomalous Systemsby Dario Villamaina

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    The study of fluctuations in statistical physics has a long history, and a general theory is well established, connecting fluctuations to response properties of equilibrium systems. Remarkably, this framework fails as soon as some current is flowing across the system, driving it out of equilibrium. The presence of currents is quite common in nature... more...

  • Dispersion Stability, Microstructure and Phase Transition of Anisotropic Nanodiscsby Ravi Kumar Pujala

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis explores the dispersion stability, microstructure and phase transitions involved in the nanoclay system. It describes the recently discovered formation of colloidal gels via two routes: the first is through phase separation and second is by equilibrium gelation and includes the first reported experimental observation of a system with high... more...

  • Smart Wormlike Micellesby Yujun Feng; Zonglin Chu; CÚcile A. Dreiss

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 54.99

    This Brief provides an up-to-date overview of smart surfactants and describes a broad spectrum of triggers that induce the formation of wormlike micelles or reversibly tune the morphology of surfactant aggregates from wormlike micelles to another state, or vice versa. Combining the fields of chemistry, physics, polymer science, and nanotechnology,... more...

  • Ionic Soft Matter: Modern Trends in Theory and Applicationsby

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 149.00

    Recently there have been profound developments in the understanding and interpretation of liquids and soft matter centered on constituents with sho- range interactions. Ionic soft matter is a class of conventional condensed soft matter with prevailing contribution from electrostatics and, therefore, can be subject to possible long-range correlations... more...

  • Light Scattering by Optically Soft Particlesby Subodh K. Sharma; David J. Sommerford

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 209.00

    This book deals with a particular class of approximation methods in the context of light scattering by small particles. Soft particles occur in ocean optics, biomedical optics, atmospheric optics and in many industrial applications. This class of approximations has been termed as eikonal or soft particle approximations. The study of these approximations... more...
