#### Biaxial Nematic Liquid Crystals

Wiley 2015; US$ 200.00 US$ 173.33In the nematic liquid crystal phase, rod-shaped molecules move randomly but remain essentially parallel to one another. Biaxial nematics, which were first predicted in 1970 by Marvin Freiser, have their molecules differentially oriented along two axes. They have the potential to create displays with fast switching times and may have applications in... more...

#### Dispersion Decay and Scattering Theory

Wiley 2014; US$ 104.00 US$ 90.13A simplified, yet rigorous treatment of scattering theory methods and their applications Dispersion Decay and Scattering Theory provides thorough, easy-to-understand guidance on the application of scattering theory methods to modern problems in mathematics, quantum physics, and mathematical physics. Introducing spectral methods with applications... more...

#### The Dirac Equation and its Solutions

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 150.47The Dirac equation is of fundamental importance for relativistic quantum mechanics and quantum electrodynamics, representing the one-particle wave equation of motion for electrons in an external electromagnetic field. In this monograph, all propagators of a particle, i.e., the various Green's functions, are constructed in a certain way... more...

#### Tubes

Birkhäuser Basel 2012; US$ 75.25In July 1998, I received an e-mail from Alfred Gray, telling me: " . . . I am in Bilbao and working on the second edition of Tubes . . . Tentatively, the new features of the book are: 1. Footnotes containing biographical information and portraits 2. A new chapter on mean-value theorems 3. A new appendix on plotting tubes " That September he spent a... more...

#### Solutions In Action

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Solitons in Action is a collection of papers that discusses the concept of a wave packer or pulse known as a soliton. One paper reviews the development of the solitary wave concept, with emphasis on the difference between a solitary wave and a soliton. The Korteweg-deVries (KdV) equation shows the interactions between infinite sets of conservation... more...

#### Nematicons

Wiley 2012; US$ 155.00 US$ 134.33The first book of its kind to introduce the fundamentals, basic features and models, potential applications and novel phenomena and its important applications in liquid crystal technology. Recognized leader in the field Gaetano Assanto outlines the peculiar characteristics of nematicons and the promise they have for the future growth of this captivating... more...

#### Electrical Solitons

CRC Press 2010; US$ 125.95The dominant medium for soliton propagation in electronics, nonlinear transmission line (NLTL) has found wide application as a testbed for nonlinear dynamics and KdV phenomena as well as for practical applications in ultra-sharp pulse/edge generation and novel nonlinear communication schemes in electronics. While many texts exist covering solitons... more...

#### Mathematical Theory of Dispersion-Managed Optical Solitons

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 150.51This book discusses recent advances covering optical solitons, soliton perturbation, optical cross-talk, Gabitov-Turitsyn Equations, quasi-linear pulses, and higher order Gabitov-Turitsyn Equations. The book focuses on a mathematical perspective. more...

#### Waves and Oscillations

Oxford University Press 2010; US$ 74.99This lively textbook differs from others on the subject by its usefulness as a conceptual and mathematical preparation for the study of quantum mechanics, by its emphasis on a variety of learning tools aimed at fostering the student's self-awareness of learning, and by its frequent connections to current research. more...

#### The Versatile Soliton

Birkhäuser Boston 2010; US$ 77.32If you have not already heard about solitons, you will sooner or later encounter them. The soliton, a solitary wave impulse preserving its shape and strikingly similar to a particle, is one of the most fascinating and beautiful phenomena in the physics of nonlinear waves. In this engaging book, the concept of the soliton is traced from the beginning... more...
