#### 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...

#### A Guide to Monte Carlo Simulations in Statistical Physics

Cambridge University Press 2013; US$ 68.00This book expands the topic of Monte Carlo simulation for graduate students and researchers in physics. more...

#### Econophysics and Sociophysics

Wiley 2007; US$ 290.00 US$ 251.33Using tricks to handle coupled nonlinear dynamical many-body systems, several advancements have already been made in understanding the behavior of markets/economic/social systems and their dynamics. The book intends to provide the reader with updated reviews on such major developments in both econophysics and sociophysics, by leading experts in the... more...

#### Deterministic Chaos

Wiley 2006; US$ 203.00A new edition of this well-established monograph, this volume provides a comprehensive overview over the still fascinating field of chaos research. The authors include recent developments such as systems with restricted degrees of freedom but put also a strong emphasis on the mathematical foundations. Partly illustrated in color, this fourth edition... more...

#### Landau Fermi-Liquid Theory

Wiley 2008; US$ 145.00A professional reference for physicists working in condensed matter physics as well as in nuclear physics and astrophysics, on Landau's theory of Fermi liquids--a vital theory of both theoretical and practical use.
