#### Theory of Phase Transitions

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 31.95Theory of Phase Transitions: Rigorous Results is inspired by lectures on mathematical problems of statistical physics presented in the Mathematical Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest. The aim of the book is to expound a series of rigorous results about the theory of phase transitions. The book consists of four chapters, wherein... more...

#### Pulsed Laser Ablation of Solids

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 97.97This comprehensive work on pulsed laser ablation explicitly links the principles and methodology to the physical properties of the irradiated materials. From the basics to the most advanced topics, it incorporates the latest theory and experimental data. more...

#### Application of Integrable Systems to Phase Transitions

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 92.53This book practical book applies integrable systems to solve the phase transition problems. It provides a unified model for the densities of eigenvalues in quantum chromodynamics (QCD). 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...

#### Relaxation and Diffusion in Complex Systems

Springer New York 2011; US$ 206.85Relaxation and diffusion are common phenomena in many branches of condensed matter physics, chemistry and materials sciences. This text presents experimental evidence of universal relaxation and diffusion properties in a range of complex materials and systems. 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...

#### Kinetics of First-order Phase Transitions

Wiley 2009; US$ 222.00 US$ 192.40Filling a gap in the literature, this crucial publication on the renowned Lifshitz-Slezov-Wagner Theory of first-order phase transitions is authored by one of the scientists who gave it its name. Prof Slezov spent decades analyzing this topic and obtained a number of results that form the cornerstone of this rapidly developing branch of science. Following... more...

#### Geometry and Phase Transitions in Colloids and Polymers

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 75.00This monograph represents an extension of the author's original PhD thesis and includes a more thorough discussion on the concepts and mathematics behind his research works on the foam model, as applied to studying issues of phase stability and elasticity for various non-closed packed structures found in fuzzy and colloidal crystals, as well as... more...
