#### The Casimir Effect in Critical Systems

World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 79.00 US$ 71.89The well-known Casimir effect has a direct analogue in systems near critical or multicritical points. Critical fluctuations in systems confined to finite geometries lead to attractive or repulsive forces between system boundaries. These forces influence the formation of wetting layers of liquid 4He or binary liquid mixtures near critical points in... more...

#### Chemistry Versus Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 62.00 US$ 56.42Chemical reactions at high pressures are widely used in modern technology (supercritical extraction is an example). On the other hand, critical phenomena is the more advanced field in statistical mechanics. There are thousands of theoretical and experimental articles published by physicists, chemists, biologists, chemical engineers and material scientists,... more...

#### Critical Behavior of Non-Ideal Systems

Wiley 2008; US$ 222.00 US$ 192.40This comprehensive systematic overview covers the static and dynamic critical phenomena of real, non-ideal fluids in the nearest vicinity of the critical point, offers new approaches and presents research results on the highest level. Including both theoretical and experimental researches, it also deals with the critical opalescence as phenomenon with... more...

#### Introduction to Critical Phenomena in Fluids

Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 219.99This advanced chemical engineering textbook reviews the fundamental thermodynamics of phase transitions and critical and supercritical fluid phenomena. more...

#### A Modern Approach to Critical Phenomena

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 32.00Introduction to critical phenomena for graduates and researchers in condensed matter physics and statistical physics. more...

#### Self-Organized Criticality

Cambridge University Press 1998; US$ 44.00A clear and concise introduction to this new, cross-disciplinary field. more...

#### Theory of Critical Phenomena in Finite-Size Systems

World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 128.00 US$ 116.48The aim of this book is to familiarise the reader with the rich collection of ideas, methods and results available in the theory of critical phenomena in systems with confined geometry. The existence of universal features of the finite-size effects arising due to highly correlated classical or quantum fluctuations is explained by the finite-size scaling... more...
