Physics

  • Self-Organization of Hot Plasmasby Yu.N. Dnestrovskij

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    In this monograph the author presents the Canonical Profile Transport Model or CPTM as a rather general mathematical framework to simulate plasma discharges.The description of hot plasmas in a magnetic fusion device is a very challenging task and many plasma properties still lack a physical explanation. One important property is plasma self-organization.It... more...

  • Physik des Golfspielsby Iv?n Egry

    Wiley 2014; US$ 21.95

    Physik, die schlau macht. Erfahrener Autor beschreibt die physikalischen Grundlagen beim Golfsport. Für die an Naturwissenschaften interessierten Golfer, die schon immer wissen wollten, wie sie perfekter golfen können. more...

  • Impact-Activated Solidification of Cornstarch and Water Suspensionsby Scott R. Waitukaitis

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis approaches impact resistance in dense suspensions from a new perspective. The most well-known example of dense suspensions, a mixture of cornstarch and water, provides enough impact resistance to allow a person to run across its surface. In the past, this phenomenon had been linked to 'shear thickening' under a steady shear state... more...

  • Scanning Tunneling Spectroscopy of Magnetic Bulk Impuritiesby Henning Prüser

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Magnetic impurities in a non-magnetic host metal have been?actively explored in condensed matter physics?in recent?last decades. From?both fundamental and applied?viewpoints these systems are very interesting because they can exhibit strong electronic correlations that give rise to various fascinating phenomena beyond the single particle picture. Up... more...

  • Laser Assisted Nuclear Decay Spectroscopyby Kara Marie Lynch

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This work details an application of collinear resonance ionization spectroscopy for the separation of short-lived isomeric states and their subsequent study with decay spectroscopy.?It reports the successful construction of?a novel decay spectroscopy apparatus that can operate at pressures below 1 x 10^-9 mbar. The method is demonstrated by separating... more...

  • Electronic Properties of Graphene Heterostructures with Hexagonal Crystalsby John Wallbank

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    The last decade has witnessed the discovery of, and dramatic progress in understanding the physics of graphene and related two-dimensional materials. The development of methods for manufacturing and aligning high-quality two-dimensional crystals has facilitated the creation of a new generation of materials: the heterostructures of graphene with hexagonal... more...

  • Nobel Lectures in Physics (2006-2010)by Lars Brink

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 101.00

    This volume is a collection of the Nobel lectures delivered by the prizewinners, together with their biographies and the presentation speeches by Nobel Committee members for the period 2006-2010. The criterion for the Physics award is to the discoverer of a physical phenomenon that changed our views, or to the inventor of a new physical process that... more...

  • Junk Drawer Physicsby Bobby Mercer

    Chicago Review Press 2014; US$ 11.99

    A children?s instructional book on how to use readily available materials to turn the house into a science lab   Physics teacher Bobby Mercer provides readers with more than 50 great hands-on experiments that can be performed for just pennies, or less. Turn a plastic cup into a pinhole camera using waxed paper, a rubber band, and a thumbtack.... more...

  • The Science of Soccerby John Taylor

    University of New Mexico Press 2014; US$ 34.95

    In a book that targets middle and high school players, Taylor explains the science behind the most popular sport in the world, soccer. more...

  • Underwater Acoustic Modelling and Simulation, Third Editionby P.C. Etter

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 336.00

    Underwater Acoustic Modeling and Simulation examines the translation of our physical understanding of sound in the sea into mathematical models that can simulate acoustic propagation, noise and reverberation in the ocean. These models are used in a variety of research and operational applications to predict and diagnose the performance of complex... more...
