#### 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...

#### Transport Phenomena and Kinetic Theory

Birkhäuser Boston 2007; US$ 199.00This 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...

#### Nonequilibrium Quantum Field Theory

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 88.00Reference for graduate students and researchers in particle physics, gravitation, cosmology, atomic-optical and condensed matter physics. more...

#### Chaos and Coarse Graining in Statistical Mechanics

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 112.00Presents concepts of chaotic systems for researchers and graduate students in statistical mechanics and chaos. more...

#### Quantum Theory of the Electron Liquid

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 76.00Comprehensive graduate text on subject of importance in condensed matter physics, electrical engineering and quantum chemistry. more...

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

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; Not AvailableIn 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...

#### 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...

#### Phase Transitions and Renormalization Group

OUP Oxford 2007; US$ 44.99The renormalization group is one of most important theoretical concepts that has emerged in physics during the twentieth century. It explains important properties of fundamental interactions at the microscopic scale, as well as universal properties of continuous macroscopic phase transitions. more...

#### Non-Equilibrium Phase Transitions

Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 139.00This book describes two main classes of non-equilibrium phase-transitions: static and dynamics of transitions into an absorbing state, and dynamical scaling in far-from-equilibrium relaxation behavior and ageing. more...

#### Nonextensive Entropy

Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 64.99A great variety of complex phenomena in many scientific fields exhibit power-law behavior, reflecting a hierarchical or fractal structure. Many of these phenomena seem to be susceptible to description using approaches drawn from thermodynamics or statistical mechanics, particularly approaches involving the maximization of entropy and of Boltzmann-Gibbs... more...
