#### INTRODUCTION TO RELATIVISTIC STATISTICAL MECHANICS

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 74.00This is one of the very few books focusing on relativistic statistical mechanics, and is written by a leading expert in this special field. It started from the notion of relativistic kinetic theory, half a century ago, exploding into relativistic statisti 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...

#### An Introduction to Stochastic Processes and Nonequilibrium Statistical Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 57.00The purpose of this textbook is to bring together, in a self-contained introductory form, the scattered material in the field of stochastic processes and statistical physics. It offers the opportunity of being acquainted with stochastic, kinetic and nonequilibrium processes. Although the research techniques in these areas have become standard procedures,... more...

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

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 169.00This 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...

#### Investigation of Staged Laser-Plasma Acceleration

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00This thesis establishes an exciting new beginning for Laser Plasma Accelerators (LPAs) to further develop toward the next generation of compact high energy accelerators. Design, installation and commissioning of a new experimental setup at LBNL played an important role and are detailed through three critical components: e-beam production, reflection... more...

#### Irreversible Processes

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95Kinetic Theory, Volume 2: Irreversible Processes deals with the kinetic theory of gases and the irreversible processes they undergo. It includes the two papers by James Clerk Maxwell and Ludwig Boltzmann in which the basic equations for transport processes in gases are formulated, together with the first derivation of Boltzmann's "H-theorem" and a... more...

#### The Janus Fluid

Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 49.99The state-of-the-art in the theoretical statistical physics treatment of the Janus fluid is reported with a bridge between new research results published in journal articles and a contextual literature review. Recent Monte Carlo simulations on the Kern and Frenkel model of the Janus fluid have revealed that in the vapor phase, below the critical point,... more...

#### Kinetic Theory

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 31.95Kinetic Theory, Volume I: The Nature of Gases and of Heat covers the developments in area of kinetic theory, statistical mechanics, and thermodynamics. This book is organized into two parts encompassing 11 chapters. The book starts with an overview of the history of atomism, the caloric theory, the conservation of energy, the virial theorem, and atomic... more...

#### Kinetic Theory of Granular Gases

Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 54.99This 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...

#### The Kinetic Theory of Inert Dilute Plasmas

Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 209.00This book constructs all the transport properties of the system within the framework of linear irreversible thermodynamics. This includes a systematic study of all possible cross effects as well as the famous H-theorem. more...
