#### A Course in Mathematical Physics

Springer Vienna 2013; US$ 99.00In this final volume I have tried to present the subject of statistical mechanics in accordance with the basic principles of the series. The effort again entailed following Gustav Mahler's maxim, "Tradition = Schlamperei" (i.e., filth) and clearing away a large portion of this tradition-laden area. The result is a book with little in common with most... more...

#### Raum, Zeit, Materie

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; Not AvailableAus dem Vorwort von Jürgen Ehlers zur 7. Auflage: "Die ... Entwicklung der Physik macht verständlich, warum ein so "altes" Werk wie Raum, Zeit, Materie noch aktuell ist: Die Riemann-Einsteinsche Raumzeitstruktur, die von Weyl so meisterhaft beschrieben und aus ihren mathematischen und physikalischen Wurzeln hervorwachsend dargestellt wird, ist immer... more...

#### Progress in String Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 176.00Intended 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 Sicences

World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 185.00To 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 Applications

World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 66.00Modulation 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 Foundation

World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 61.00This 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 Elements

World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 82.00This 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...

#### At the Frontier of Particle Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 320.00This 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 Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 128.00This 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...

#### Quark Confinement and the Hadron Spectrum Iii, Jun 98, Usa

World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 133.00The confinement mechanism of the quarks in QCD is one of the most challenging and open problems in physics. Confinement is a nonperturbative phenomenon, and a definite way to handle it has not yet been found in field theory. There are lattice calculations that can produce the low-lying states of the spectrum and “measure” many important... more...
