Phase transformations (Statistical physics)

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

    Springer 2013; US$ 109.00

    The eigenvalue densities in various matrix models in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) are ultimately unified in this book by a unified model derived from the integrable systems. Many new density models and free energy functions are consequently solved and presented. The phase transition models including critical phenomena with fractional power-law for... 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 2011; US$ 229.00

    The 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...

  • 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

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 179.95

    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 Haye Hinrichsen; Sven Lübeck

    Springer 2008; US$ 139.00

    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 behaviour and ageing. more...

  • Physics of Phase Transitionsby Stephen Berry; Boris Smirnov

    Springer 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...

  • Phase Transitions and Renormalization Groupby Jean Zinn-Justin

    Oxford University Press, UK 2007; US$ 98.99

    The renormalization group is one of most important theoretical concepts that has emerged in physics during the twentieth century. It explains important properties of fundamental interactions at the microscopic scale, as well as universal properties of continuous macroscopic phase transitions. - ;This work tries to provide an elementary introduction... more...

  • Order, Disorder and Criticalityby Yurij Holovatch

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 193.00

    This 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...
