#### Investigation of Staged Laser-Plasma Acceleration

Springer 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...

#### Meccanica Statistica Elementare

Springer 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... more...

#### Theory of Phase Transitions

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 31.95Theory of Phase Transitions: Rigorous Results is inspired by lectures on mathematical problems of statistical physics presented in the Mathematical Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest. The aim of the book is to expound a series of rigorous results about the theory of phase transitions. The book consists of four chapters, wherein... more...

#### Introduction to Statistical Physics

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 65.95Statistical physics is a core component of most undergraduate (and some post-graduate) physics degree courses. It is primarily concerned with the behavior of matter in bulk-from boiling water to the superconductivity of metals. Ultimately, it seeks to uncover the laws governing random processes, such as the snow on your TV screen. This essential new... more...

#### Introduction To Percolation Theory

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 71.95This work dealing with percolation theory clustering, criticallity, diffusion, fractals and phase transitions takes a broad approach to the subject, covering basic theory and also specialized fields like disordered systems and renormalization groups. more...

#### Mechanical Vibration and Shock Analysis, Mechanical Shock

Wiley 2014; US$ 195.00This volume considers the shock response spectrum, its various definitions, properties and the assumptions involved in its calculation. In developing the practical application of these concepts, the forms of shock most often used with test facilities are presented together with their characteristics and indications of how to establish test configurations... more...

#### Mechanical Vibration and Shock Analysis, Random Vibration

Wiley 2014; US$ 195.00The vast majority of vibrations encountered in the real environment are random in nature. Such vibrations are intrinsically complicated and this volume describes the process that enables us to simplify the required analysis, along with the analysis of the signal in the frequency domain. The power spectrum density is also defined, together with the... more...

#### Mechanical Vibration and Shock Analysis, Fatigue Damage

Wiley 2014; US$ 195.00Fatigue damage in a system with one degree of freedom is one of the two criteria applied when comparing the severity of vibratory environments. The same criterion is also used for a specification representing the effects produced by the set of vibrations imposed in a real environment. In this volume, which is devoted to the calculation of fatigue damage,... more...

#### First-Passage Phenomena and Their Applications

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 192.00The book contains review articles on recent advances in first-passage phenomena and applications contributed by leading international experts. It is intended for graduate students and researchers who are interested in learning about this intriguing and important topic. Sample Chapter(s). Chapter 1: Arrival Statistics and Exploration Properties of Mortal... more...

#### Secrets of Life, Secrets of Death

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 57.95First published in 1993. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company. more...
