#### Landau Fermi-Liquid Theory

Wiley 2008; US$ 145.00 US$ 130.50A 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. The emphasis is on the practical development and application of the theory. more...

#### Time, Chance, and Reduction

Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 112.00Presents a summary of current research on the philosophical issues inherent in the reduction of thermodynamics to statistical mechanics. more...

#### An Introduction to the Boltzmann Equation and Transport Processes in Gases

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 151.77This book covers classical kinetic theory of gases, presenting basic principles in a self-contained framework and from a more rigorous approach based on the Boltzmann equation. Uses methods in kinetic theory for determining the transport coefficients of gases. more...

#### Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Lattice Models

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 72.00An introduction to nonequilibrium statistical physics via lattice models; for researchers. more...

#### Geometrical Frustration

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 64.00A clear account of how the application of geometrical frustration elucidates the structure and properties of non-periodic materials. more...

#### Radiative Transfer in the Atmosphere and Ocean

Cambridge University Press 2002; US$ 124.00Provides a foundation of the theoretical and practical aspects of radiative transfer, for the atmospheric, oceanic and environmental sciences. more...

#### Non-Equilibrium Phase Transitions

Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 101.56Dynamical scaling is key to our understanding of ‘far from equilibrium’ relaxation. Where Volume 1 of this set covered the statics and dynamics of transitions into an absorbing state, this one treats relaxation phenomena far from equilibrium and ageing. more...

#### Statistical Mechanics

Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 93.95Statistical Mechanics explores the physical properties of matter based on the dynamic behavior of its microscopic constituents. After a historical introduction, this book presents chapters about thermodynamics, ensemble theory, simple gases theory, Ideal Bose and Fermi systems, statistical mechanics of interacting systems, phase transitions, and... more...

#### Advanced Statistical Mechanics

OUP Oxford 2009; US$ 72.99This book presents the advances made in Statistical Mechanics of the last 50 years, including mathematical theorems on order and phase transitions; numerical and series computations of phase diagrams; and solutions for important solvable models including Ising and 8 vertex. more...

#### Relaxation and Diffusion in Complex Systems

Springer New York 2011; US$ 221.82Relaxation and diffusion are common phenomena in many branches of condensed matter physics, chemistry and materials sciences. This text presents experimental evidence of universal relaxation and diffusion properties in a range of complex materials and systems. more...
