#### Investigation of Staged Laser-Plasma Acceleration

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00This thesis establishes an exciting new beginning for Laser Plasma Accelerators (LPAs) to further develop toward the next generation of compact high energy accelerators.Design, installation and commissioning of a new experimental setup at LBNL played an important role and are detailed through three critical components: e-beam production, reflection... more...

#### Bose?Einstein Condensation in Dilute Gases

Cambridge University Press 2001; US$ 72.00An up-to-date and detailed graduate-level introduction to the theory and experimental formation of Bose-Einstein condensates. more...

#### Thermodynamics of Flowing Systems

Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 299.99This much-needed monograph presents a systematic, step-by-step approach to the continuum modeling of flow phenomena exhibited within materials endowed with a complex internal microstructure, such as polymers and liquid crystals. By combining the principles of Hamiltonian mechanics with those of irreversible thermodynamics, Antony N. Beris and Brian... more...

#### Statistical Physics for Cosmic Structures

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 149.00The physics of scale-invariant and complex systems is a novel interdisciplinary field. Its ideas allow us to look at natural phenomena in a radically new and original way, eventually leading to unifying concepts independent of the detailed structure of the systems. The objective is the study of complex, scale-invariant, and more general stochastic... more...

#### Noise-Induced Transitions

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 129.00Develops and explains the foundations of noise-induced processes. Following an introduction to the mathematical tools, this book analyzes the occurrence and the properties of noise-induced transitions for rapidly fluctuating environments describable by the white-noise idealization. It considers more realistic and general types of colored noises. more...

#### Open Quantum Systems II

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 59.95Deals with the Markovian formalism of classical and quantum open systems. This volume provides an exposition of noise theory, Markov processes and stochastic differential equations, both in the classical and the quantum context. These mathematical tools are put into perspective with physical motivations and applications. more...

#### Lattice Boltzmann Modeling

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 149.00Lattice Boltzmann models have a remarkable ability to simulate single- and multi-phase fluids and transport processes within them. This book provides a basic introduction that emphasizes intuition and simplistic conceptualization of processes. It avoids the more difficult mathematics that underlies LB models. more...

#### Interfacial Transport Phenomena

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2007; US$ 269.00Gives a presentation of transport phenomena or continuum mechanics focused on momentum, energy, and mass transfer at interfaces. This work includes a discussion of transport phenomena at common lines or three-phase lines of contact, and a theory for the extension of continuum mechanics to the nanoscale region immediately adjacent to the interface. more...
