#### Thermodynamics of Flowing Systems

Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 329.99This much-needed monograph presents a systematic, step-by-step approach to the continuum modeling of flow phenomena exhibited within materials endowed with a complex internal microstructure, such as polymers and liquid crystals. By combining the principles of Hamiltonian mechanics with those of irreversible thermodynamics, Antony N. Beris and Brian... more...

#### The Essential David Bohm

Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 38.95There are few scientists of the twentieth century whose life's work has created more excitement and controversy than that of physicist David Bohm (1917-1992). For the first time in a single volume, The Essential David Bohm offers a comprehensive overview of Bohm's original works from a non-technical perspective. Including three chapters of previously... more...

#### Order, Disorder, And Criticality

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 112.00 US$ 101.92This book reviews some of the classic aspects in the theory of phase transitions and critical phenomena, which has a long history. Recently, these aspects are attracting much attention due to essential new contributions. The topics presented in this book include: mathematical theory of the Ising model; equilibrium and non-equilibrium criticality of... more...

#### Evolution of Phase Transitions

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 46.00This 2006 work addresses development and application of continuum-mechanical models that describe the macroscopic response of certain materials. more...

#### Lectures On Statistical Physics And Protein Folding

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 46.00 US$ 41.86This book introduces an approach to protein folding from the point of view of kinetic theory. There is an abundance of data on protein folding, but few proposals are available on the mechanism driving the process. Here, presented for the first time, are suggestions on possible research directions, as developed by the author in collaboration with... more...

#### Statistical Physics for Cosmic Structures

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 145.55This book has its roots in a series of collaborations in the last decade at the interface between statistical physics and cosmology. The speci?c problem which initiated this research was the study of the clustering properties of galaxies as revealed by large redshift surveys, a context in which concepts of modern statistical physics (e. g. scale-invariance,... more...
