Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 179.95Providing a comprehensive introduction with the necessary background material to make it accessible for a wide scientific audience, "Kinetics of Phase Transitions" presents a timely discussion of current developments in domain-growth kinetics. This book combines pedagogical chapters from various leading experts in this area and focuses on... more...

#### Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Lattice Models

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 65.00An introduction to nonequilibrium statistical physics via lattice models; for researchers. more...

#### Relaxation and Diffusion in Complex Systems

Springer 2011; US$ 239.00The usefulness of the book to the reader is exposure to many different classes of materials and relaxation phenomena. They are tied together by the universal relaxation and diffusion properties they share, and a consistent explanation of their origin. The readers can apply what they learn to solve their own problems and use it as a stepping-stone to... more...

#### Order, Disorder and Criticality

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 127.00This book is the third volume of review papers on advanced problems of phase transitions and critical phenomena, following the success of the first two volumes in 2004 and in 2007. Broadly, the book aims to demonstrate that the phase transition theory, which experienced its ?golden age? during the 70s and 80s, is far from over and there is still a... more...

#### Order, Disorder and Criticality

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 193.00This book is the second volume of review papers on advanced problems of phase transitions and critical phenomena, following the success of the first volume in 2004. Broadly, the volume aims to demonstrate that the phase transition theory, which experienced its 'golden age' during the 70s and 80s, is far from over and there is still a good... more...

#### Thermomechanics of Phase Transitions in Classical Field Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 1993; US$ 99.00The complex processes of state changes can be interpreted by resorting to Statistical Quantum Mechanics. However, it is well known that a phenomenological description of state changes can be obtained by using the classical continuum theory. This book supplies a panoramic picture of known and new mathematical models which are suitable to describe phase... more...

#### From Phase Transitions to Chaos

World Scientific Publishing Company 1992; US$ 255.00This volume comprises about forty research papers and essays covering a wide range of subjects in the forefront of contemporary statistical physics. The contributors are renown scientists and leading authorities in several different fields. This book is dedicated to Péter Szépfalusy on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday. Emphasis is... more...

#### Lectures on Phase Transitions

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 179.00This book treats the problem of phase transitions, emphasizing the generality and universality of the methods and models used. The course is basically concentrated on the problems of vacuum degeneration in macroscopic systems and a fundamental concept of quasiaverages by Bogolubov playing a special role in the theory of phase transitions and critical... more...

#### Effective Field Approach to Phase Transitions and Some Applications to Ferroelectrics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 234.00This book begins by introducing the effective field approach, the simplest approach to phase transitions. It provides an intuitive approximation to the physics of such diverse phenomena as liquid-vapor transitions, ferromagnetism, superconductivity, order-disorder in alloys, ferroelectricity, superfluidity and ferroelasticity. The connection between... more...

#### Phase Transitions and Critical Phenomena

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 180.00The field of phase transitions and critical phenomena continues to be active in research, producing a steady stream of interesting and fruitful results. It has moved into a central place in condensed matter studies. Statistical physics, and more specifically, the theory of transitions between states of matter, more or less defines what we know about... more...
