  • Carbonaceous Aerosolby András Gelencsér

    Springer 2007; US$ 169.00

    This monograph provides a unique and comprehensive coverage of the nature and atmospheric role of carbonaceous aerosol particles, these big unknowns of the global atmosphere. Even the concept of carbonaceous aerosol has just recently grown out of atmospheric pollution studies, without ever being anchored to solidified nomenclature and terminology.... more...

  • Relativitätstheorie aktuellby Ernst Schmutzer

    Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2013; US$ 29.95


  • A Course in Mathematical Physicsby Walter Thirring

    Springer Vienna 2013; US$ 99.00

    In 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, Materieby Hermann Weyl; Jürgen Ehlers

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 49.99

    Aus 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
