#### Quantum Mechanics In Phase Space

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 248.00Wigner?s quasi-probability distribution function in phase space is a special (Weyl) representation of the density matrix. It has been useful in describing quantum transport in quantum optics; nuclear physics; decoherence, quantum computing, and quantum chaos. It is also important in signal processing and the mathematics of algebraic deformation. A... more...

#### Scaling Analysis in Modeling Transport and Reaction Processes

Wiley 2007; US$ 160.00This book is unique as the first effort to expound on the subject of systematic scaling analysis. Not written for a specific discipline, the book targets any reader interested in transport phenomena and reaction processes. The book is logically divided into chapters on the use of systematic scaling analysis in fluid dynamics, heat transfer, mass transfer,... more...

#### Phase Transitions and Critical Phenomena

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 170.00The field of phase transitions and critical phenomena continues to be active in research, producing a steady stream of interesting and fruitful results. No longer an area of specialist interest, it has acquired a central focus in condensed matter studies. The major aim of this serial is to provide review articles that can serve as standard references... more...

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 170.00The field of phase transitions and critical phenomena continues to be active in research, producing a steady stream of interesting and fruitful results. It has moved into a central place in condensed matter studies. Statistical physics, and more specifically, the theory of transitions between states of matter, more or less defines what we know about... more...

#### 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...

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

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 176.00A 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 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...

#### Entropy Methods for the Boltzmann Equation

Springer 2007; US$ 44.95Entropy and entropy production have become mathematical tools for kinetic and hydrodynamic limits. This title illustrates the role of entropy and entropy production in a mutual and complementary manner. It describes the mathematical theory of convergence to equilibrium for the Boltzmann equation and its relation to various problems and fields. more...
