#### Quantum Mechanics in the Geometry of Space-Time

Springer Fachmedien 2011; US$ 49.95This book continues the fundamental work of Arnold Sommerfeld and David Hestenes formulating theoretical physics in terms of Minkowski space-time geometry. We see how the standard matrix version of the Dirac equation can be reformulated in terms of a real space-time algebra, thus revealing a geometric meaning for the "number i" in quantum... more...

#### Phase Transitions in Two-Dimensional Complex Plasmas

Springer 2011; US$ 129.00The two experimental studies reported in this thesis contribute important new knowledge about phase transitions in two-dimensional complex plasmas: in one case a determination of the coupling parameter (ratio of mean potential to mean kinetic energy of the particles in an ensemble), and in the other a detailed characterization of the non-equilibrium... more...

#### Einstein's Theory

Springer 2011; US$ 79.95This book provides an introduction to the theory of relativity and the mathematics used in its processes. Three elements of the book make it stand apart from previously published books on the theory of relativity. First, the book starts at a lower mathematical level than standard books with tensor calculus of sufficient maturity to make it possible... more...

#### Greenhouse: Planning for Climate Change

CSIRO Publishing 1988; US$ 140.00This important book explores the sensitivity of Australia to possible climate change induced by the greenhouse effect. more...

#### Towards a Sustainable Asia

Springer 2012; US$ 139.00This series of books are the output of the research project called "Sustainable Development in Asia (SDA)", which was initiated by the Association of Academies of Sciences in Asia (AASA). They are comprised of one synthesis report, which entitled "Towards a Sustainable Asia: Green Transition and Innovation", and four thematic reports... more...

#### Precipitation Modeling and Quantitative Analysis

Springer 2011; US$ 209.00The book examines surface rainfall processes through cloud-resolving modeling and quantitative analysis of surface rainfall budget and summarizes modeling and analysis results in recent seven years. The book shows validation of precipitation modeling against observations and derives a set of diagnostic precipitation equations. The book provides detailed... more...

#### Governing the Uncertain

Springer 2012; US$ 129.00The book introduces adaptation to impacts of climate change as an issue of governance. Adaptation governance is closely related to existing political and administrative practices. Responsibilisation is a particular technique of governance which works by scattering responsibility to adapt among societal actors and between different levels of government.... more...

#### Climate Change and the Sustainable Use of Water Resources

Springer 2011; US$ 279.00The book explores the geo-chemical, physical, social and economic impacts of climate change on water supplies. It contains examples and case studies from a wide range of countries, and addresses the need to promote sustainable water use across the world. more...

#### A Concise Introduction to the Statistical Physics of Complex Systems

Springer 2011; US$ 49.95This concise primer (based on lectures given at summer schools on complex systems and on a masters degree course in complex systems modeling) will provide graduate students and newcomers to the field with the basic knowledge of the concepts and methods of statistical physics and its potential for application to interdisciplinary topics. Indeed, in... more...
