#### Statistical Physics for Cosmic Structures

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 179.00This 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...

#### Radiation Hydrodynamics

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 48.00 US$ 39.36Introduction to the theory and the large-scale simulation methods currently used in radiation hydrodynamics. more...

#### Thermodynamic Formalism

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 72.00 US$ 59.04Reissued in the Cambridge Mathematical Library this classic book outlines the theory of thermodynamic formalism. more...

#### Statistical Mechanics

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 80.00 US$ 65.60This 2006 book presents a 'reductionist' view of statistical mechanics, suitable for a one year graduate course. more...

#### Generalized Boltzmann Physical Kinetics

Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 210.00The most important result obtained by Prof. B. Alexeev and reflected in the book is connected with new theory of transport processes in gases, plasma and liquids. It was shown by Prof. B. Alexeev that well-known Boltzmann equation, which is the basement of the classical kinetic theory, is wrong in the definite sense. Namely in the Boltzmann equation... more...

#### Quantum Mechanics In Phase Space

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 153.00Wigner?s quasi-probability distribution function in phase space is a special (Weyl) representation of the density matrix. It has been useful in describing quantum transport in quantum optics; nuclear physics; decoherence, quantum computing, and quantum chaos. It is also important in signal processing and the mathematics of algebraic deformation. A... more...

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 69.95This volume is the second in a series of three volumes dedicated to the lecture notes of the summer school ?Open Quantum Systems? which took place in the Institut Fourier in Grenoble, from June 16th to July 4th 2003. The contributions presented in thesevolumesarerevisedandexpandedversionsofthenotesprovidedtothestudents during the school. After the... more...

#### Scaling Analysis in Modeling Transport and Reaction Processes

Wiley 2007; US$ 165.00 US$ 143.00This book is unique as the first effort to expound on the subject of systematic scaling analysis. Not written for a specific discipline, the book targets any reader interested in transport phenomena and reaction processes. The book is logically divided into chapters on the use of systematic scaling analysis in fluid dynamics, heat transfer, mass transfer,... more...

#### The Mathematics of the Bose Gas and its Condensation

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 49.95The mathematical study of the Bose gas goes back to the ?rst quarter of the twentieth century, with the invention of quantum mechanics. The name refers to the Indian physicist S.N. Bose who realized in 1924 that the statistics governing photons(essentiallyinventedbyMaxPlanckin1900)isdetermined(usingmodern terminology) by restricting the physical Hilbert... more...

#### Slow Rarefied Flows

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 129.00This volume is intended to coverthe presentstatus of the mathematicaltools used to deal with problems related to slow rare?ed ?ows. The meaning and usefulness of the subject, and the extent to which it is covered in the book, are discussed in some detail in the introduction. In short, I tried to present the basic concepts and the techniques used in... more...
