#### Noise-Induced Transitions

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 97.71The 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...

#### Statistical Physics of Particles

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 76.00 US$ 62.32Textbook on statistical physics for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses. more...

#### Random Polymer Models

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 83.00 US$ 68.06This volume introduces readers to the world of disordered systems and to some of the remarkable probabilistic techniques developed in the field. The author explores in depth a class of directed polymer models to which much attention has been devoted in the last 25 years, in particular in the fields of physical and biological sciences. The models treated... more...

#### Microscopic Chaos, Fractals And Transport In Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 109.00 US$ 89.38A valuable introduction for newcomers as well as an important reference and source of inspiration for established researchers, this book provides an up-to-date summary of central topics in the field of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and dynamical systems theory. Understanding macroscopic properties of matter starting from microscopic chaos in... more...

#### From Microphysics to Macrophysics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 78.61This popular, often cited text returns in a softcover edition to provide a thorough introduction to statistical physics and thermodynamics, and to exhibit the universal chain of ideas leading from the laws of microphysics to the macroscopic behaviour of matter. more...

#### Entropy Methods for the Boltzmann Equation

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 33.69Entropy and entropy production have recently become mathematical tools for kinetic and hydrodynamic limits, when deriving the macroscopic behaviour of systems from the interaction dynamics of their many microscopic elementary constituents at the atomic or molecular level. During a special semester on Hydrodynamic Limits at the Centre Émile Borel... more...

#### Transport Phenomena and Kinetic Theory

Birkhäuser Boston 2007; US$ 151.49This volume aims to provide an overview of some recent developments of mathematical kinetic theory focused on its application in modelling complex systems in various ?elds of applied sciences. Mathematical kinetic theory is essentially based on the Boltzmann eq- tion, which describes the evolution, possibly far from equilibrium, of a class of particles... more...
