#### Random Polymer Models

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 135.00This 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...

#### From Microphysics to Macrophysics

Springer 2007; US$ 89.95Drawing on both quantum mechanics and classical physics, this first volume of a two-volume work follows modern research in statistical physics. It discusses in detail the probabilistic description of quantum or classical systems, the Boltzmann-Gibbs distributions, the conservation laws, and the interpretation of entropy as missing information. more...

#### Vortices in Bose-Einstein Condensates

Springer 2007; US$ 169.00In experiments on Bose-Einstein condensates, vortices have been observed in various conditions. This monograph is focuses on the mathematical modelling of these phenomena. It is useful for mathematical researchers and theoretical physicists interested in superfluidity and quantum condensates. more...

#### Computational Methods in Transport

Springer 2008; US$ 129.00The focus of this book deals with a cross cutting issue affecting all transport disciplines, whether it be photon, neutron, charged particle or neutrino transport. That is, verification and validation (V&V). In other words, are the equations being solved correctly and are the correct equations being solved? Verification and validation assures a scientist,... more...

#### Physics of Phase Transitions

Springer 2007; US$ 219.00This monograph develops a unified microscopic basis for phases and phase changes of bulk matter and small systems in terms of classical physics. The origins of such phase changes are derived from simple but physically relevant models of how transitions between rigid crystalline, glassy and fluid states occur, how phase equilibria arise, and how bulk... more...

#### Analytical Methods for Problems of Molecular Transport
