#### Emergent Nonlinear Phenomena in Bose-Einstein Condensates

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 259.00This book, written by experts in the fields of atomic physics and nonlinear science, covers the important developments in a special aspect of Bose-Einstein condensation, namely nonlinear phenomena in condensates. Topics covered include bright, dark, gap and multidimensional solitons; vortices; vortex lattices; optical lattices; multicomponent condensates;... more...

#### Energy Localisation and Transfer

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 145.00This book provides an introduction to localised excitations in spatially discrete systems, from the experimental, numerical and mathematical points of view. Also known as discrete breathers, nonlinear lattice excitations and intrinsic localised modes, these are spatially localised time periodic motions in networks of dynamical units. Examples of such... more...

#### Entropy Methods for the Boltzmann Equation

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 49.95Entropy 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...

#### 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...

#### Evolution of Phase Transitions

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 44.00This 2006 work addresses development and application of continuum-mechanical models that describe the macroscopic response of certain materials. more...

#### Finite-Size Scaling

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Over the past few years, finite-size scaling has become an increasingly important tool in studies of critical systems. This is partly due to an increased understanding of finite-size effects by analytical means, and partly due to our ability to treat larger systems with large computers. The aim of this volume was to collect those papers which have... more...

#### First-Passage Phenomena and Their Applications

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 111.00The book contains review articles on recent advances in first-passage phenomena and applications contributed by leading international experts. It is intended for graduate students and researchers who are interested in learning about this intriguing and important topic. Sample Chapter(s). Chapter 1: Arrival Statistics and Exploration Properties of Mortal... more...
