#### Evolution of Phase Transitions

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 46.00 US$ 37.72This 2006 work addresses development and application of continuum-mechanical models that describe the macroscopic response of certain materials. more...

#### Interaction Models

Cambridge University Press 1977; US$ 44.00 US$ 36.08This book is based on a set of lectures given to a mixed audience of physicists and mathematicians. more...

#### Understanding Quantum Phase Transitions

CRC Press 2010; US$ 139.95Quantum phase transitions (QPTs) offer wonderful examples of the radical macroscopic effects inherent in quantum physics: phase changes between different forms of matter driven by quantum rather than thermal fluctuations, typically at very low temperatures. QPTs provide new insight into outstanding problems such as high-temperature superconductivity... more...

#### Phase Transitions and Critical Phenomena

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 190.00The 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...

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

World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 144.00This 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...

#### From Phase Transitions to Chaos

World Scientific Publishing Company 1992; US$ 157.00This 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...

#### Non-Equilibrium Phase Transitions

Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 94.71This book describes two main classes of non-equilibrium phase-transitions: static and dynamics of transitions into an absorbing state, and dynamical scaling in far-from-equilibrium relaxation behavior and ageing. more...

#### Order, Disorder, And Criticality

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 112.00This book reviews some of the classic aspects in the theory of phase transitions and critical phenomena, which has a long history. Recently, these aspects are attracting much attention due to essential new contributions. The topics presented in this book include: mathematical theory of the Ising model; equilibrium and non-equilibrium criticality of... more...

#### Order, Disorder and Criticality

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 78.00This 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$ 118.00This 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...
