#### Application of Integrable Systems to Phase Transitions

Springer 2013; US$ 109.00The 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...

#### 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...

#### Evolution of Phase Transitions

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 48.00This 2006 work addresses development and application of continuum-mechanical models that describe the macroscopic response of certain materials. 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...

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

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 123.00This 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...

#### Interaction Models

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

#### Kinetics of First-order Phase Transitions

Wiley 2009; US$ 215.00Vitaly V. Slezov is Professor at the Kharkov National University and Head of Department at the National Science Center, Kharkov Institute of Physics and Technology. He began his scientific career at this institute in 1954 in the theoretical department headed by I. M. Lifshitz, with whom he developed the theory of the late stages of evolution of supersaturated... more...

CRC Press 2009; US$ 188.95Providing 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...

#### 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...

#### Non-Equilibrium Phase Transitions

Springer 2008; US$ 139.00Describes 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...
