#### Computational Methods in Transport: Verification and Validation

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 129.00In a wide variety of applications, accurate simulation of particle transport is necessary whether those particles be photons, neutrinos, or charged par- cles. For inertial con?nement fusion, where one is dealing with either direct drive through photon or ion beams or indirect drive via thermal photons in a hohlraum, the accurate transport of energy... more...

#### Computational Statistical Mechanics

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 93.95Computational Statistical Mechanics describes the use of fast computers to simulate the equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties of gases, liquids, and solids at, and away from equilibrium. The underlying theory is developed from basic principles and illustrated by applying it to the simplest possible examples. Thermodynamics, based on the ideal... more...

#### Continuum Percolation

Cambridge University Press 1996; US$ 52.00A unified treatment of a spatial random process that can be used to model many natural phenomena. more...

#### Deterministic Chaos

Wiley 2006; US$ 203.00A new edition of this well-established monograph, this volume provides a comprehensive overview over the still fascinating field of chaos research. The authors include recent developments such as systems with restricted degrees of freedom but put also a strong emphasis on the mathematical foundations. Partly illustrated in color, this fourth edition... more...

World Scientific Publishing Company 1987; US$ 65.00This volume, the first of a two-volume book, consists of a collection of comprehensive reviews and lectures written by active researchers on topics in chaotic phenomena. more...

#### Directions in Chaos - Volume 2

World Scientific Publishing Company 1988; US$ 65.00Volume 2 of Directions in Chaos consists of the contributions made to the Beijing Summer School on Chaotic Phenomena in Nonlinear Systems held in August 1987. more...

#### Dynamics Near Quantum Criticality in Two Space Dimensions

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 99.00This work addresses dynamical aspects of quantum criticality in two space dimensions. It probes two energy scales: the amplitude (Higgs) mode, which describes fluctuations of the order parameter amplitude in the broken symmetry phase and the dual vortex superfluid stiffness. The results demonstrate that the amplitude mode can be probed arbitrarily... more...

#### Econophysics and Sociophysics

Wiley 2007; US$ 290.00Using tricks to handle coupled nonlinear dynamical many-body systems, several advancements have already been made in understanding the behavior of markets/economic/social systems and their dynamics. The book intends to provide the reader with updated reviews on such major developments in both econophysics and sociophysics, by leading experts in the... more...

#### Effective Field Approach to Phase Transitions and Some Applications to Ferroelectrics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 135.00This book begins by introducing the effective field approach, the simplest approach to phase transitions. It provides an intuitive approximation to the physics of such diverse phenomena as liquid-vapor transitions, ferromagnetism, superconductivity, order-disorder in alloys, ferroelectricity, superfluidity and ferroelasticity. The connection between... more...

#### Elementary Particles and Emergent Phase Space

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 74.00The Standard Model of elementary particles, although very successful, contains various elements that are put in by hand. Understanding their origin requires going beyond the model and searching for "new physics". The present book elaborates on one particular proposal concerning such physics. While the original conception is 50 years old,... more...
