#### Chaos and Coarse Graining in Statistical Mechanics

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 124.00Presents concepts of chaotic systems for researchers and graduate students in statistical mechanics and chaos. more...

#### Computational Methods in Transport

Springer 2008; US$ 129.00The focus of this book deals with a cross cutting issue affecting all transport disciplines, whether it be photon, neutron, charged particle or neutrino transport. That is, verification and validation (V&V). In other words, are the equations being solved correctly and are the correct equations being solved? Verification and validation assures a scientist,... more...

#### Analytical Methods for Problems of Molecular Transport

Springer 2007; US$ 139.00The Kinetic Theory of Gases has applications in many areas of science and technology as well as in our understandings of many natural processes and phenomena from the nano-scale up to the cosmic-scale. Some of the fields and topics affected include manufacturing, health care, weather, defence, pollution, aerospace science and engineering, and others.... more...

#### Emergent Nonlinear Phenomena in Bose-Einstein Condensates

Springer 2007; US$ 249.00This 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...

#### Physics of Phase Transitions

Springer 2007; US$ 219.00This 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...

#### Non-Equilibrium Phase Transitions

Springer 2008; US$ 139.00Describes 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...

#### Kinetic Theory of Granular Gases

Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 48.99This 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 a Dilute Ionized Plasma

Springer 2008; US$ 189.00Results 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...
