#### Advanced Statistical Mechanics

Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 98.99Statistical Mechanics is the study of systems where the number of interacting particles becomes infinite. In the last fifty years tremendous advances have been made which have required the invention of entirely new fields of mathematics such as quantum groups and affine Lie algebras. They have engendered remarkable discoveries concerning non-linear... more...

#### Glasses and Grains

Springer Basel 2011; US$ 99.00This 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...

#### Physical Kinetics

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95This volume is mainly concerned with a systematic development of the theory of plasmas, the authority being firmly rooted in the pioneering work of Landau. Corresponding results are also given for partially ionized plasmas, relativistic plasmas, degenerate or non-ideal plasmas and solid state plasmas. more...

#### Hamiltonian Systems

Cambridge University Press 1989; US$ 56.00Hamiltonian Systems outlines the main results in the field, and considers the implications for quantum mechanics. more...

#### Liquid State Physics

Cambridge University Press 1974; 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...

#### Open Quantum Systems

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 49.95Revising the fundamental theory of open quantum systems in light of current progress, this book develops a unified approach by merging concepts and methods typically used in quantum optics, condensed matter, chemical physics and mathematical physics. 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...

#### Manuale di Relatività Ristretta

Springer 2010; US$ 19.95Una moderna presentazione della teoria della Relativit Ristretta, specificatamente progettata per i nuovi corsi della Laurea Triennale in Fisica. Un testo essenziale ma autosufficiente, che adotta lo stile e il linguaggio delle lezioni svolte in aula, e che introduce alle trasformazioni di Lorentz, alla formulazione covariante dell'elettromagnetismo... more...

#### Nonequilibrium Magnons

Wiley 2012; US$ 155.00This much-needed book addresses the concepts, models, experiments and applications of magnons and spin wave in magnetic devices. It fills the gap in the current literature by providing the theoretical and technological framework needed to develop innovative magnetic devices, such as recording devices and sensors. Starting with a historical review of... more...

#### Nonequilibrium Statistical Physics

Wiley 2013; US$ 145.00Authored by a well-known expert in the field of nonequilibrium statistical physics, this book is a coherent presentation of the subject suitable for masters and PhD students, as well as postdocs in physics and related disciplines. Starting from a general discussion of irreversibility and entropy, the method of nonequilibrium statistical operator is... more...
