#### 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...

#### Statistical Mechanics

Elsevier Science 1972; US$ 72.95Statistical Mechanics discusses the fundamental concepts involved in understanding the physical properties of matter in bulk on the basis of the dynamical behavior of its microscopic constituents. The book emphasizes the equilibrium states of physical systems. The text first details the statistical basis of thermodynamics, and then proceeds to discussing... more...

#### Theory of Phase Transitions

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 31.95Theory of Phase Transitions: Rigorous Results is inspired by lectures on mathematical problems of statistical physics presented in the Mathematical Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest. The aim of the book is to expound a series of rigorous results about the theory of phase transitions. The book consists of four chapters, wherein... more...

#### Convexity in the Theory of Lattice Gases

Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 46.00 US$ 36.80In this book, Robert Israel considers classical and quantum lattice systems in terms of equilibrium statistical mechanics. He is especially concerned with the characterization of translation-invariant equilibrium states by a variational principle and the use of convexity in studying these states. Arthur Wightman's Introduction gives a general and... more...

#### Efficient Quadrature Rules for Illumination Integrals

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2015; US$ 36.00Rendering photorealistic images is a costly process which can take up to several days in the case of high quality images. In most cases, the task of sampling the incident radiance function to evaluate the illumination integral is responsible for an important share of the computation time. Therefore, to reach acceptable rendering times, the illumination... more...

#### Quantum Many-Body Physics of Ultracold Molecules in Optical Lattices

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 157.24This thesis investigates ultracold molecules as a resource for novel quantum many-body physics, in particular by utilizing their rich internal structure and strong, long-range dipole-dipole interactions. In addition, numerical methods based on matrix product states are analyzed in detail, and general algorithms for investigating the static and dynamic... more...

#### Non-equilibrium Dynamics of One-Dimensional Bose Gases

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 97.71This work presents a series of experiments with ultracold one-dimensional Bose gases, which establish said gases as an ideal model system for exploring a wide range of non-equilibrium phenomena. With the help of newly developed tools, like full distributions functions and phase correlation functions, the book reveals the emergence of thermal-like transient... more...

#### Glasses and Grains

Springer Basel 2011; US$ 89.85This 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...

#### Basic Superfluids

CRC Press 2003; US$ 167.95Superfluidity is the jewel in the crown of low temperature physics. When temperatures are low enough, every substance in thermal equilibrium must become ordered. Since some materials remain fluid to the lowest temperatures, it is a fascinating question as to how this ordering can take place. One possibility is the formation of a superfluid state, a... more...

#### Introduction to Statistical Physics

CRC Press 2014; US$ 68.95Statistical physics is a core component of most undergraduate (and some post-graduate) physics degree courses. It is primarily concerned with the behavior of matter in bulk-from boiling water to the superconductivity of metals. Ultimately, it seeks to uncover the laws governing random processes, such as the snow on your TV screen. This essential new... more...
