Phase transformations (Statistical physics)

  • Theory of Phase Transitionsby Ya. G. Sinai; D. Ter Haar

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 31.95

    Theory 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...

  • Application of Integrable Systems to Phase Transitionsby C.B. Wang

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 109.00

    This 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 Criticalityby Yurij Holovatch

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 127.00

    This 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 Systemsby K.L. Ngai

    Springer New York 2011; US$ 239.00

    Relaxation 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 Transitionsby Lincoln Carr

    CRC Press 2010; US$ 139.95

    Quantum 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 Transitionsby Vitaly V. Slezov

    Wiley 2009; US$ 215.00

    Filling 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 Polymersby William Kung

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 123.00

    This 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...

  • Kinetics of Phase Transitionsby Sanjay Puri; Vinod Wadhawan

    CRC Press 2009; US$ 188.95

    Providing 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...

  • Non-Equilibrium Phase Transitionsby Malte Henkel; Haye Hinrichsen; Sven Lübeck

    Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 139.00

    This 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...

  • Phase Transitions of Simple Systemsby Boris M. Smirnov; Stephen R. Berry

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 219.00

    This monograph develops a unified microscopic basis for phases and phase changes of bulk matter and small systems in terms of classical physics. The origins of such phase changes are derived from simple but physically relevant models of how transitions between rigid crystalline, glassy and fluid states occur, how phase equilibria arise, and how bulk... more...
