  • Natural Philosophyby Wilhelm Ostwald; Thomas Seltzer

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99

    Along with several collaborators, Russian-born chemist Wilhelm Ostwald is regarded as one of the key figures in developing the field now known as physical chemistry. In 1909, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work on catalysis and several other key processes. In this comprehensive volume, Ostwald lays out a complete scientific system and relates... more...

  • Laser Surface Modification and Adhesionby K. L. Mittal; Thomas Bahners

    Wiley 2014; US$ 195.00

    The book provides a unique overview on laser techniques and applications for the purpose of improving adhesion by altering surface chemistry and topography/morphology of the substrate. It details laser surface modification techniques for a wide range of industrially relevant materials (plastics, metals, ceramics, composites) with the aim to improve... more...

  • Local Disaster Risk Management in a Changing Climateby Rajib Shaw; Hori Tsuneki

    Emerald Group Publishing Limited 2014; US$ 114.95

    Disasters cause economic as well as human losses, and the magnitude of this is ever increasing. This can largely be attributed to climate-related disasters, which intensify vulnerability in the poorest areas of the world. In this book, approaches to disaster risk management in developing countries are discussed, with particular focus on Costa Rica. more...

  • Nonrelativistic Quantum X-Ray Physicsby Stefan P. Hau-Riege

    Wiley 2014; US$ 86.50

    Providing a solid theoretical background in photon-matter interaction, Nonrelativistic Quantum X-Ray Physics enables readers to understand experiments performed at XFEL-facilities and x-ray synchrotrons. As a result, after reading this book, scientists and students will be able to outline and perform calculations of some important x-ray-matter interaction... more...

  • The Two-Mile Time Machineby Richard B. Alley; Richard B. Alley

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 17.95

    In the 1990s Richard B. Alley and his colleagues made headlines with the discovery that the last ice age came to an abrupt end over a period of only three years. In The Two-Mile Time Machine , Alley tells the fascinating history of global climate changes as revealed by reading the annual rings of ice from cores drilled in Greenland. He explains that... more...

  • Atom Interferometryby G.M. Tino; M.A. Kasevich

    IOS Press 2014; US$ 290.00

    Since atom interferometers were first realized about 20 years ago, atom interferometry has had many applications in basic and applied science, and has been used to measure gravity acceleration, rotations and fundamental physical quantities with unprecedented precision. Future applications range from tests of general relativity to the development of... more...

  • Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativityby Tevian Dray

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95

    Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativity provides readers with a coherent path to understanding relativity. Requiring little more than calculus and some linear algebra, it helps readers learn just enough differential geometry to grasp the basics of general relativity. The book contains two intertwined but distinct halves. ... more...

  • Lectures on Quantum Mechanicsby Steven Weinberg

    Cambridge University Press 2012; US$ 72.00

    Steven Weinberg demonstrates his exceptional insight in this concise introduction to modern quantum mechanics for graduate students. more...

    Wiley 2014; US$ 149.95

    Modeling Atmospheric and Oceanic Flows: Insights from Laboratory Experiments and Numerical Simulations provides a broad overview of recent progress in using laboratory experiments and numerical simulations to model atmospheric and oceanic fluid motions. This volume not only surveys novel research topics in laboratory experimentation, but also highlights... more...

  • Drought and Water Crisesby Donald A. Wilhite

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 184.95

    Today the world is facing a greater water crisis than ever. Droughts of lesser magnitude are resulting in greater impact. Even in years with normal precipitation, water shortages have become widespread in both developing and developed nations, in humid as well as arid climates. When faced with severe drought, governments become eager to act. Unfortunately,... more...
