#### 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...

#### 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...

#### Index

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...

#### 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...

#### Statistical Mechanics

Elsevier Science 1996; US$ 105.95'This is an excellent book from which to learn the methods and results of statistical mechanics.' Nature 'A well written graduate-level text for scientists and engineers... Highly recommended for graduate-level libraries.' Choice This highly successful text, which first appeared in the year 1972 and has continued to be popular ever since, has now... 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...

#### 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...
