#### Glasses and Grains

Springer Basel 2011; US$ 129.00This volume of the Poincaré Seminar Series covers a key frontier in statistical physics, exploring leading-edge research on the related but little understood topics of glasses?especially the glass transition?and the statics and dynamics of granular systems. more...

#### Hamiltonian Systems

Cambridge University Press 1990; US$ 56.00Hamiltonian Systems outlines the main results in the field, and considers the implications for quantum mechanics. more...

#### Interaction Models

Cambridge University Press 1977; US$ 44.00This book is based on a set of lectures given to a mixed audience of physicists and mathematicians. more...

#### Kinetic Processes in Gases and Plasmas

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Kinetic Processes in Gases and Plasmas provides a survey of studies on transport and chemical kinetic processes in high temperature gases and plasmas. The book is concerned with conditions produced by the interaction of an object with the atmosphere at hypersonic velocities. The text also provides a foundation for the flow field equations which include... more...

#### Kinetic Theory

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95Kinetic Theory, Volume 3: The Chapman-Enskog Solution of the Transport Equation for Moderately Dense Gases describes the Chapman-Enskog solution of the transport equation for moderately dense gases. Topics covered range from the propagation of sound in monatomic gases to the kinetic theory of simple and composite monatomic gases and generalizations... 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...

#### Lecture Notes on Mathematical Theory of the Boltzmann Equation

World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 88.00This is a collection of four lectures on some mathematical aspects related to the nonlinear Boltzmann equation. The following topics are dealt with: derivation of kinetic equations, qualitative analysis of the initial value problem, singular perturbation analysis towards the hydrodynamic limit and computational methods towards the solution of problems... more...

#### Liquid State Physics

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 88.00First published in 1974, Dr Croxton's book takes the reader from a consideration of the early ways in which the kinetic theory of gases was modified and applied to the liquid state, through a classical thermodynamic approach, to the modern cluster-diagrammatic quantum and statistical mechanical techniques. He includes chapters on the development and... more...

#### MEAN FIELD THEORIES AND DUAL VARIATION

Atlantis Press 2009; US$ 109.00A mathematical theory is introduced in this book to unify a large class of nonlinear partial differential equation (PDE) models for better understanding and analysis of the physical and biological phenomena they represent. The so-called mean field approximation approach is adopted to describe the macroscopic phenomena from certain microscopic principles... more...

#### Mechanical Vibration and Shock Analysis, Fatigue Damage

Wiley 2014; US$ 200.95Fatigue damage in a system with one degree of freedom is one of the two criteria applied when comparing the severity of vibratory environments. The same criterion is also used for a specification representing the effects produced by the set of vibrations imposed in a real environment. In this volume, which is devoted to the calculation of fatigue damage,... more...
