  • Progress in String Theoryby Juan M. Maldacena

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 287.00

    Intended mainly for advanced graduate students in theoretical physics, this comprehensive volume covers recent advances in string theory and field theory dualities. It is based on the annual lectures given at the School of the Theoretical Advanced Study Institute (2003) a traditional event that brings together graduate students in high energy physics... more...

  • Rontgen Centennial - X-Rays Today in Natural and Life Sicencesby A. Haase; Gottfried Landwehr; E. Umbach

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 300.00

    To honour W C Röntgen and review the entire area of X-ray development in the various fields of natural, technical, and life sciences, his successors at the Physikalisches Institut of the Universität Würzburg organized a conference, named “Röntgen Centennial”. It took place at the new “Physikalisches Institut”... more...

  • Modulation Spectrometry of Neutrons with Diffractometry Applicationsby P. HiimsmSki

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 107.00

    Modulation spectrometry of neutrons refers to a measuring principle, characterized by classification of neutron histories in a probabilistic way, not the usual deterministic way. In order to accomplish this, neutron beams entering the sample are modulated by high-transmission, white-beam selectors of the multislit type, such as Fourier or statistical... more...

  • Special Relativity and Its Experimental Foundationby Y-.Z. Zhang

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 99.00

    This book is divided into two parts. In the first part we introduce the foundations of special relativity, such as, the inertial frame of reference, the definition of simulataneity, and Einstein's two basic hypotheses. We give the main relativistic effects, e.g. the relativity of simultaneity, velocity addition, length-contraction, the apparent... more...

  • Birefringent Thin Films and Polarizing Elementsby I. Hodgkinson; Q. H. Wu

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 132.00

    This book describes the propagation of light in biaxial media, the properties of biaxial thin films, and applications such as birefringent filters for tuning the wavelength of dye lasers.A novel feature of the first part is the parallel treatment of Stokes, Jones, and Berreman matrix formalisms in a chapter-by-chapter development of wave equations,... more...

  • Color Confinement and Hadronsby Hiroshi Toki; H. Suganuma; Y. Mizuno; O. Miyamura; T. Suzuki

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 122.00

    The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the various pictures of color confinement and its consequences on the properties of hadrons. We consider color confinement, chiral symmetry breaking, and the properties of QCD at finite temperature, as the fundamental subjects of QCD. We include discussions on the roles of instantons to hadron physics. We... more...

  • Jingshin Theoretical Physics Symposium in Honor of Prof Ta-You Wuby Jong-Ping Hsu; Leonardo Hsu

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 227.00

    Prof T-Y Wu is not only an eminent physicist with an encyclopedic knowledge, but also a motivational teacher and an influential policy maker in science and technology. The young Wu was inspired by Prof Y-T Yao, whose course on modern physics sparked an interest that burned during a long and productive career. Among Wu's achievements are 14 books... more...

  • Novel Aspects of Electron-Molecule Collisionsby K.H. Becker

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 151.00

    Electron–molecule collisions have been studied extensively by both experimentalists and theorists since the early years of this century. The past ten years have seen a remarkable renaissance in experimental and theoretical activities in the study of electron collision processes with molecules. This was stimulated (i) by the advent of more powerful... more...

  • At the Frontier of Particle Physicsby Mikhail A. Shifman

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 474.00

    This book consists of reviews covering all aspects of quantum chromodynamics as we know it today. The articles have been written by recognized experts in this field, in honor of the 75th birthday of Professor Boris Ioffe. Combining features of a handbook and a textbook, this is the most comprehensive source of information on the present status of QCD.... more...

  • At the Frontier of Particle Physicsby Misha Shifman

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 208.00

    This is the fourth and last volume of the invaluable publication At the Frontier of Particle Physics: Handbook of QCD. In this volume the reader will find three important sections. The first is devoted to QCD-based phenomenology. It covers issues deeply woven into the fabric of particle physics: weak interactions of light quarks (J Bijnens) and heavy... more...
