  • Lattice Methods for Quantum Chromodynamicsby Thomas DeGrand; Carleton DeTar

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 153.00

    Numerical simulation of lattice-regulated QCD has become an important source of information about strong interactions. In the last few years there has been an explosion of techniques for performing ever more accurate studies on the properties of strongly interacting particles. Lattice predictions directly impact many areas of particle and nuclear physics... more...

  • 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...

  • Klimawandel und Resilienz in Bangladeschby Tibor Aßheuer

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2014; US$ 44.85

    <P>Der Klimawandel bedroht in besonderer Weise Menschen in den Slums der Megastädte. Aufgrund der zunehmenden Informalität und der hohen Vulnerabilität der Slum-Bevölkerung scheint dabei eine Anpassung an den Klimawandel unwahrscheinlich. Durch die Massenmedien verstärkt, entsteht ein Mythos der Perspektivlosigkeit. Dieses Buch hinterfragt den... more...

  • Risky change?by Matthias Garschagen

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2014; US$ 59.17

    <P>Vietnam?s cities are not only rapidly transforming under the country?s political and economic change, but are also increasingly exposed to natural hazards and threatened by the projected impacts of climate change. The interaction of both trends leads to substantial shifts in risk and to new challenges for adaptation governance which, however,... more...

  • Electroluminescenceby H. K. Henisch; Heinz K. Henisch

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95
