  • Physics of Phase Transitionsby Stephen Berry; Boris Smirnov

    Springer 2007; US$ 219.00

    This 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...

  • Emergent Nonlinear Phenomena in Bose-Einstein Condensatesby Panayotis G. Kevrekidis; Dimitri J. Frantzeskakis; Ricardo Carretero-gonzález

    Springer 2007; US$ 249.00

    This 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...

  • Non-Equilibrium Phase Transitionsby Haye Hinrichsen; Sven Lübeck

    Springer 2008; US$ 139.00

    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 behaviour and ageing. more...

  • Numerical Methods in Multidimensional Radiative Transferby Erik Meinköhn; Rolf Rannacher

    Springer 2008; US$ 179.00

    Offers an overview of the numerical modelling of radiation fields in multidimensional geometries. This book covers advances and problems in the mathematical treatment of the radiative transfer equation, a partial integro-differential equation of high dimension that describes the propagation of the radiation in various fields. more...

  • The Kinetic Theory of a Dilute Ionized Plasmaby Leonardo Dagdug

    Springer 2008; US$ 189.00

    Results from the studies aimed at answering questions raised by astrophysicists who use values of transport coefficients that are old and often unsatisfactory. This title includes a systematic study of various possible cross effects and the famous H-theorem. It is of interest to the plasma physics community and to astrophysicists. more...

  • Kinetic Theory of Granular Gasesby Nikolai V. Brilliantov; Thorsten Pöschel

    Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 48.99

    This is the first introductory text in the rapidly growing field of granular gases. In contrast to molecular gases (for example, air), the particles of granular gases, such as a cloud of dust, lose part of their kinetic energy when they collide, giving rise to many exciting physical properties. The book provides a self-contained introduction to the... more...

  • Nonextensive Entropyby Murray Gell-Mann; Constantino Tsallis

    Oxford University Press, USA 2004; US$ 41.99

    Preface, Murray Gell-Mann and Constantino Tsallis. Nonextensive Statistical Mechanics: Construction and Physical Interpretation, Constantino Tsallis. Generalized Nonadditive Information Theory and Quantum Entanglement, Sumiyoshi Abe. Unifying Laws in Multidisciplinary Power-Law Phenomena: Fixed-Point Universality and Nonextensive Entropy, Alberto Robledo.... more...

  • Statistical Mechanicsby James Sethna

    Oxford University Press, UK 2006; US$ 64.99

    Sethna's book distills the core ideas of statistical mechanics to make room for new advances important to information theory, complexity, and modern biology. Aimed at advanced undergraduates and early graduate students, Sethna's text explores everything from chaos through information theory to life at the end of the universe. - ;In each generation,... more...

  • Hamiltonian Chaos and Fractional Dynamicsby George M. Zaslavsky

    Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 64.99

    This books gives a realistic contemporary image of Hamiltonian dynamics, dealing with the basic principles of the Hamiltonian theory of chaos in addition to very recent and unusual applications of nonlinear dynamics and the fractality of dynamics. - ;The dynamics of realistic Hamiltonian systems has unusual microscopic features that are direct consequences... more...

  • Kinetics of Phase Transitionsby Sanjay Puri; Vinod Wadhawan

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 179.95

    Providing a comprehensive introduction with the necessary background material to make it accessible for a wide scientific audience, "Kinetics of Phase Transitions" presents a timely discussion of current developments in domain-growth kinetics. This book combines pedagogical chapters from various leading experts in this area and focuses on... more...
