#### 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... 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...
