#### Efficient Quadrature Rules for Illumination Integrals

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2015; US$ 36.00Rendering photorealistic images is a costly process which can take up to several days in the case of high quality images. In most cases, the task of sampling the incident radiance function to evaluate the illumination integral is responsible for an important share of the computation time. Therefore, to reach acceptable rendering times, the illumination... more...

#### Materials Behavior

Apple Academic Press 2015; US$ 149.95The development of advanced materials has become extremely important in the last decade, being widely used in academic and industrial research. This book examines the potential of advanced materials as well as nanotechnology to improve fiber science from fibril to fabric mode, to create better materials and products for a variety of aspects. ... more...

#### Superfluid States of Matter

CRC Press 2015; US$ 99.95Covers the State of the Art in Superfluidity and Superconductivity Superfluid States of Matter addresses the phenomenon of superfluidity/superconductivity through an emergent, topologically protected constant of motion and covers topics developed over the past 20 years. The approach is based on the idea of separating universal classical-field... more...

#### Unified Non-Local Theory of Transport Processes

Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 255.00Unified Non-Local Theory of Transport Processess , 2 nd Edition provides a new theory of transport processes in gases, plasmas and liquids. It is shown that the well-known Boltzmann equation, which is the basis of the classical kinetic theory, is incorrect in the definite sense. Additional terms need to be added leading to a dramatic change in transport... more...

#### Quantum Thermodynamic Processes

Pan Stanford 2014; US$ 179.95" This book of Günter Mahler, an early contributor to the field of quantum thermodynamics, comes at the right time to provide insights into this exciting field at the intersection of information theory, quantum mechanics, and statistical mechanics. " ?Prof. Martin B. Plenio , University of Ulm, Germany " This interesting book by one of the... more...

#### Axiomatics of Classical Statistical Mechanics

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 31.95Axiomatics of Classical Statistical Mechanics provides an understanding of classical statistical mechanics as a deductive system. This book presents the mechanical systems of a finite number of degrees of freedom. Organized into seven chapters, this book begins with an overview of the average behavior of mechanical systems. This text then examines... 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...

#### Flow and Heat and Mass Transfer in Laminar and Turbulent Mist Gas-Droplets Stream over a Flat Plate

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 54.99In this book the author presents selected challenges of thermal-hydraulics modeling of two-phase flows in minichannels with change of phase. These encompass the common modeling of flow boiling and flow condensation using the same expression. Approaches to model these two respective cases show, however, that experimental data show different results... more...

#### Quantum Information and Coherence

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 179.00This book offers an introduction to key topics in quantum information science and quantum coherent phenomena, covering quantum retrodiction, ultracold quantum gases in optical lattices, optomechanics, quantum algorithms, quantum key distribution and much more. more...

#### Meccanica Statistica Elementare

Springer Milan 2014; US$ 39.99La meccanica statistica (MS) nell'insegnamente universitario e' spesso confinata in una posizione itermedia tra le tre grandi aree della fisica teorica, la fisica della materia e la fisica matematica. In genere vengono discussi gli aspetti "pratici", di supporto alla fisica della materia, che pur importanti non esauriscono la rilevanza concettule... more...
