#### Statistical Mechanics

Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 51.95Thirty years' teaching experience have been condensed into this concise introductory book on Statistical Mechanics. Ideal for second and third year undergraduates in physics, applied mathematics, physical chemistry, chemical engineering, metallurgy, materials science and polymer science. Provides a concise introduction to statistical mechanics ... more...

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

Wiley 2014; US$ 200.95This 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...

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

Wiley 2014; US$ 200.95The 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$ 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...

#### Meccanica Statistica Elementare

Springer 2014; US$ 39.99La meccanica statistica (MS) nell'insegnamente universitario e' spesso confinata in una posizione itermedia tra le tre grandi aree della fisica teorica, la fisica della materia e la fisica matematica. In genere vengono discussi gli aspetti 'pratici', di supporto alla fisica della materia, che pur importanti non esauriscono la rilevanza... 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...

#### 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...
