#### 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...

#### Numerical Methods in Multidimensional Radiative Transfer

Springer 2008; US$ 179.00Offers an overview of the numerical modelling of radiation fields in multidimensional geometries. This book covers advances and problems in the mathematical treatment of the radiative transfer equation, a partial integro-differential equation of high dimension that describes the propagation of the radiation in various fields. more...

#### The Kinetic Theory of a Dilute Ionized Plasma

Springer 2008; US$ 189.00Results from the studies aimed at answering questions raised by astrophysicists who use values of transport coefficients that are old and often unsatisfactory. This title includes a systematic study of various possible cross effects and the famous H-theorem. It is of interest to the plasma physics community and to astrophysicists. more...

#### Scientific Autobiography of V. L. Ginzburg

Springer 2008; US$ 89.99Presents the Nobel Laureate Vitaly Ginzburg's views on the development in the field of superconductivity. This book contains a selection of Ginzburg's key writings, including his amended version of the Nobel lecture in Physics 2003. more...

#### Kinetic Theory of Granular Gases

Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 48.99This is the first introductory text in the rapidly growing field of granular gases. In contrast to molecular gases (for example, air), the particles of granular gases, such as a cloud of dust, lose part of their kinetic energy when they collide, giving rise to many exciting physical properties. The book provides a self-contained introduction to the... more...
