#### 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$ 151.77This 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...

#### Thermodynamic Formalism

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 72.00Reissued in the Cambridge Mathematical Library this classic book outlines the theory of thermodynamic formalism. 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$ 153.00 US$ 139.23Wigner’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...

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

Wiley 2007; US$ 165.00 US$ 148.50This 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...

#### Open Quantum Systems II

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 46.69This 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...

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

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 36.70The 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$ 93.39This 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...

#### Noise-Induced Transitions

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 101.56The study of phase transitions is among the most fascinating fields in physics. Originally limited to transition phenomena in equilibrium systems, this field has outgrown its classical confines during the last two decades. The behavior of far from equilibrium systems has received more and more attention and has been an extremely active and productive... more...
