#### Synchrotron Radiation Research

Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00In the summer of 1972, I had the privilege and responsibility of organizing a Gordon Conference on the "High-Energy Spectroscopy of Solids." The Thursday evening session focused on future directions for high-energy spectroscopy. The possibilities associated with synchrotron radiation for future research became a central issue. I was asked to choose... more...

#### Hartree-Fock-Slater Method for Materials Science

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 209.00Molecular-orbital calculations for materials design such as alloys, ceramics, and coordination compounds are now possible for experimentalists. Molecuar-orbital calculations for the interpretation of chemical effect of spectra are also possible for experimentalists. The most suitable molecular-orbital calculation method for these purpose is the DV-Xa... more...

#### Electrons In Metals And Alloys

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 93.95This book is a broad review of the electronic structure of metals and alloys. It emphasises the way in which the behavior of electrons in these materials governs the thermodynamic and other properties of these conducting materials. The theoretical treatment proceeds from a wave mechanics approach to more sophisticated techniques for the description... more...

#### Band Theory of Metals

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95Band Theory of Metals: The Elements focuses on the band theory of solids. The book first discusses revision of quantum mechanics. Topics include Heisenberg?s uncertainty principle, normalization, stationary states, wave and group velocities, mean values, and variational method. The text takes a look at the free-electron theory of metals, including... more...

#### Methods of Electronic Structure Calculations

World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 161.00Developments in the density functional theory and the methods of electronic structure calculations have made it possible to carry out ab-initio studies of a variety of materials efficiently and at a predictable level. This book covers many of those state-of-the-art developments and their applications to ordered and disordered materials, surfaces and... more...

#### Electronic Structure of Strongly Correlated Materials

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 239.00Electronic structure and physical properties of strongly correlated materials containing elements with partially filled 3d, 4d, 4f and 5f electronic shells is analyzed by Dynamical Mean-Field Theory (DMFT). DMFT is the most universal and effective tool used for the theoretical investigation of electronic states with strong correlation effects. In the... more...

#### Advances in Synthetic Metals

Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 340.00This edited work contains eight extensive, review-type contributions by leading scientists in the field of synthetic metals. The authors were invited by the organisers of the International Conference on Science and Technology of Synthetic Metals '98 (ICSM'98) to review the progress of research in the past two decades in a unifying and pedagogical manner.... more...

#### Topology of Strongly Correlated Systems

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 192.00The XVIII Lisbon Autumn School brought together physicists from different areas, ranging from QCD to condensed matter. This subject will be of ever-growing importance in the coming years. The topics covered are: Anomalies, Physical Charges, Chiral Symmetry, Vortices (Superconductivity, Solitons, Kosterlitz–Thouless Transitions), Non-trivial... more...

#### Anomalous Rare Earths and Actinides

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95Anomalous Rare Earths and Actinides: Valence Fluctuation and Heavy Fermions focuses on the characteristics, reactions, transformations, technologies, and processes involved in the study of anomalous rare earths and actinides. The selection first offers information on lanthanides and actinides and electronic structures in cerium monopnictides. Topics... more...
