#### Many-Body Schrödinger Dynamics of Bose-Einstein Condensates

Springer 2011; US$ 129.00At extremely low temperatures, clouds of bosonic atoms form what is known as a Bose-Einstein condensate. Recently, it has become clear that many different types of condensates - so called fragmented condensates - exist. In order to tell whether fragmentation occurs or not, it is necessary to solve the full many-body Schrodinger equation, a task that... 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...

#### Probability in Physics

Springer 2012; US$ 99.00What is the role and meaning of probability in physical theory, in particular in two of the most successful theories of our age, quantum physics and statistical mechanics? Laws once conceived as universal and deterministic, such as Newton's laws of motion, or the second law of thermodynamics, are replaced in these theories by inherently probabilistic... more...

#### Open Quantum Systems

Springer 2011; US$ 49.95In this volume the fundamental theory of open quantum systems is revised in the light of modern developments in the field. A unified approach to the quantum evolution of open systems is presented by merging concepts and methods traditionally employed by different communities, such as quantum optics, condensed matter, chemical physics and mathematical... 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...

#### Thermodynamics, Gibbs Method and Statistical Physics of Electron Gases

Springer 2009; US$ 219.00This book deals with theoretical thermodynamics and the statistical physics of electron and particle gases. While treating the laws of thermodynamics from both classical and quantum theoretical viewpoints, it posits that the basis of the statistical theory of macroscopic properties of a system is the microcanonical distribution of isolated systems,... 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 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...

#### Statistical Mechanics, Kinetic theory, and Stochastic Processes

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Statistical Mechanics, Kinetic Theory, and Stochastic Processes presents the statistical aspects of physics as a "living and dynamic" subject. In order to provide an elementary introduction to kinetic theory, physical systems in which particle-particle interaction can be neglected are considered. Transport phenomena in the free-molecular flow region... more...
