#### 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...

#### The Mathematics of the Bose Gas and its Condensation

Springer 2006; US$ 49.95Contains a survey of the mathematically rigorous results about the quantum-mechanical many-body problem, a topic which uses various techniques in mathematical analysis and has ties to experiments on ultra-cold Bose gases and Bose-Einstein condensation. This book is aimed at mathematicians and physicists active in the research on quantum mechanics. more...

#### Slow Rarefied Flows

Springer 2006; US$ 129.00Presents the mathematical tools used to deal with problems related to slow rarefied flows, with particular attention to basic concepts and problems which arise in the study of micro- and nanomachines. This book presents the mathematical theory of slow flows, provides a justification for the use of the linearized Boltzmann equation, and more. more...

#### Transport Phenomena and Kinetic Theory

Springer 2007; US$ 199.00The study of kinetic equations related to gases, semiconductors, photons, traffic flow, and other systems has developed rapidly because of its role as a mathematical tool in areas such as engineering, and others. This book presents an overview of developments in the field of mathematical kinetic theory with a focus on modeling complex systems. more...

#### Ultra-cold Fermi Gases

IOS Press 2008; US$ 322.00The field of cold atomic gases faced a revolution in 1995 when Bose-Einstein condensation was achieved. Since then, there has been an impressive progress, both experimental and theoretical. The quest for ultra-cold Fermi gases started shortly after the 1995 discovery, and quantum degeneracy in a gas of fermionic atoms was obtained in 1999. The Pauli... more...

#### Phase Transitions and Renormalization Group

Oxford University Press, UK 2007; US$ 98.99The renormalization group is one of most important theoretical concepts that has emerged in physics during the twentieth century. It explains important properties of fundamental interactions at the microscopic scale, as well as universal properties of continuous macroscopic phase transitions. - ;This work tries to provide an elementary introduction... more...

#### Stochastic Dynamics and Boltzmann Hierarchy

De Gruyter 2009; US$ 182.00The monograph is devoted to one of the most important trends in contemporary mathematical physics, the investigation of evolution equations of many-particle systems of statistical mechanics. The book systematizes rigorous results obtained in this field in recent years, and it presents contemporary methods for the investigation of evolution equations... 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...

#### Crystal-Liquid-Gas Phase Transitions and Thermodynamic Similarity

Wiley 2006; US$ 225.00Professor Skripov obtained worldwide recognition with his monograph "Metastable liquids", published in English by Wiley & Sons. Based upon this work and another monograph published only in Russia, this book investigates the behavior of melting line and the properties of the coexisting crystal and liquid phase of simple substances across a wide range... more...

#### Kinetics of First-order Phase Transitions

Wiley 2009; US$ 215.00Filling a gap in the literature, this crucial publication on the renowned Lifshitz-Slezov-Wagner Theory of first-order phase transitions is authored by one of the scientists who gave it its name. Prof Slezov spent decades analyzing this topic and obtained a number of results that form the cornerstone of this rapidly developing branch of science. Following... more...
