#### Directions in Chaos - Volume 1

World Scientific Publishing Company 1987; US$ 70.00 US$ 57.40This volume, the first of a two-volume book, consists of a collection of comprehensive reviews and lectures written by active researchers on topics in chaotic phenomena. more...

#### Order, Disorder and Criticality

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 78.00 US$ 63.96This 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...

#### Lectures on Statistical Mechanics

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 31.95Anyone dissatisfied with the almost ritual dullness of many 'standard' texts in statistical mechanics will be grateful for the lucid explanation and generally reassuring tone. Aimed at securing firm foundations for equilibrium statistical mechanics, topics of great subtlety are presented transparently and enthusiastically. Very little mathematical... more...

#### Porous Media Fluid Transport and Pore Structure

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Porous Media: Fluid Transport and Pore Structure presents relevant data on the role of pore structure in terms of transport phenomena in pore spaces. The information is then applied to the interpretation of various experiments and results of model calculations. This book emphasizes the discussion of ""flow through porous media"" in terms of interactions... more...

#### Phase Space Picture of Quantum Mechanics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1991; US$ 45.00 US$ 36.90This book covers the theory and applications of the Wigner phase space distribution function and its symmetry properties. The book explains why the phase space picture of quantum mechanics is needed, in addition to the conventional Schrödinger or Heisenberg picture. It is shown that the uncertainty relation can be represented more accurately... more...

#### Thermomechanics of Phase Transitions in Classical Field Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 1993; US$ 76.00 US$ 62.32The complex processes of state changes can be interpreted by resorting to Statistical Quantum Mechanics. However, it is well known that a phenomenological description of state changes can be obtained by using the classical continuum theory. This book supplies a panoramic picture of known and new mathematical models which are suitable to describe phase... more...

#### An Introduction to Stochastic Processes and Nonequilibrium Statistical Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 76.00 US$ 62.32The purpose of this textbook is to bring together, in a self-contained introductory form, the scattered material in the field of stochastic processes and statistical physics. It offers the opportunity of being acquainted with stochastic, kinetic and nonequilibrium processes. Although the research techniques in these areas have become standard procedures,... more...

#### Universality in Nonequilibrium Lattice Systems

World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 118.00 US$ 96.76Universal scaling behavior is an attractive feature in statistical physics because a wide range of models can be classified purely in terms of their collective behavior due to a diverging correlation length. This book provides a comprehensive overview of dynamical universality classes occurring in nonequilibrium systems defined on regular lattices.... more...

#### From Phase Transitions to Chaos

World Scientific Publishing Company 1992; US$ 157.00 US$ 128.74This 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...

#### Lectures on Phase Transitions

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 52.00 US$ 42.64This 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...
