#### Quantum Transport Calculations for Nanosystems

Pan Stanford Publishing 2014; US$ 149.95As electric devices become smaller and smaller, transport simulations based on the quantum mechanics become more and more important. There are currently numerous textbooks on the basic concepts of quantum transport, but few present calculation methods in detail. This book provides various quantum transport simulation methods and shows applications... more...

#### Energy Localisation and Transfer

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 154.00 US$ 126.28This book provides an introduction to localised excitations in spatially discrete systems, from the experimental, numerical and mathematical points of view. Also known as discrete breathers, nonlinear lattice excitations and intrinsic localised modes, these are spatially localised time periodic motions in networks of dynamical units. Examples of such... more...

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

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 146.01This 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...

#### Transport Phenomena and Kinetic Theory

Birkhäuser Boston 2007; US$ 151.49This volume aims to provide an overview of some recent developments of mathematical kinetic theory focused on its application in modelling complex systems in various ?elds of applied sciences. Mathematical kinetic theory is essentially based on the Boltzmann eq- tion, which describes the evolution, possibly far from equilibrium, of a class of particles... more...

#### Computational Methods in Transport: Verification and Validation

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 123.54In a wide variety of applications, accurate simulation of particle transport is necessary whether those particles be photons, neutrinos, or charged par- cles. For inertial con?nement fusion, where one is dealing with either direct drive through photon or ion beams or indirect drive via thermal photons in a hohlraum, the accurate transport of energy... more...

#### Multicomponent Interfacial Transport

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 101.08This excellent and novel scientific work has given an area of key research a significant step forward. The systematic documentation of the approach to describing phase transitions will facilitate further applications of the theory to important problems. more...

#### Porous Media

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95This book examines the relationship between transport properties and pore structure of porous material. Models of pore structure are presented with a discussion of how such models can be used to predict the transport properties of porous media. Portions of the book are devoted to interpretations of experimental results in this area and directions for... more...

#### Dispersive Transport Equations and Multiscale Models

Springer New York 2012; US$ 101.08IMA Volumes 135: Transport in Transition Regimes and 136: Dispersive Transport Equations and Multiscale Models focus on the modeling of processes for which transport is one of the most complicated components. This includes processes that involve a wdie range of length scales over different spatio-temporal regions of the problem, ranging from the... more...

#### Interfacial Transport Phenomena

Springer US 2007; US$ 279.68Transport phenomena is used here to describe momentuin, energy, mass, and entropy transfer [1, 2]. It includes thermodynamics, a special case of which is thermosiaiics. Interfacial transport phenomena refers to momentum, energy, mass, and entropy transfer within the immediate neighborhood of a phase interface, including the thermodynamics of the interface.... more...

#### Numerical Methods in Multidimensional Radiative Transfer

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 179.70Traditionally, radiative transfer has been the domain of astrophysicists and climatologists. In nuclear technology one has been dealing with the ana- gous equations of neutron transport. In recent years, applications of radiative transferincombustionmachinedesignandinmedicinebecamemoreandmore important. In all these disciplines one uses the radiative... more...
