#### 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$ 148.01This 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$ 91.98This 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...

#### Crystal-Liquid-Gas Phase Transitions and Thermodynamic Similarity

Wiley 2006; US$ 239.00 US$ 207.13Professor Skripov obtained worldwide recognition with his monograph "Metastable liquids", published in English by Wiley & Sons. Based upon this work and another monograph published only in Russia, this book investigates the behavior of melting line and the properties of the coexisting crystal and liquid phase of simple substances across a wide range... more...

#### Mechanical Vibration and Shock Analysis, Random Vibration

Wiley 2014; US$ 206.95 US$ 179.36The vast majority of vibrations encountered in the real environment are random in nature. Such vibrations are intrinsically complicated and this volume describes the process that enables us to simplify the required analysis, along with the analysis of the signal in the frequency domain. The power spectrum density is also defined, together with the... more...

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

Wiley 2014; US$ 206.95 US$ 179.36Fatigue 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...

#### Mechanical Vibration and Shock Analysis, Mechanical Shock

Wiley 2014; US$ 206.95 US$ 179.36This volume considers the shock response spectrum, its various definitions, properties and the assumptions involved in its calculation. In developing the practical application of these concepts, the forms of shock most often used with test facilities are presented together with their characteristics and indications of how to establish test configurations... more...

#### Statistical Analysis Techniques in Particle Physics

Wiley 2013; US$ 119.00 US$ 103.13Modern analysis of HEP data needs advanced statistical tools to separate signal from background. This is the first book which focuses on machine learning techniques. It will be of interest to almost every high energy physicist, and, due to its coverage, suitable for students. more...

#### Basic Superfluids

CRC Press 2003; US$ 67.95Superfluidity 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...
