  • The Method of the Generalised Eikonalby Michael V. Vesnik

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 252.00

    The diffraction theory describes scattering mechanism for waves of various physical nature, scattered on objects of different shapes and composed of different materials. Using the diffraction theory, one can study a number of important effects connected with wave propagation, and create objects with given properties. more...

  • Diffractionby M. Françon; W. Ashhurst; L. L. Green

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 31.95

    Diffraction: Coherence in Optics presents a detailed account of the course on Fraunhofer diffraction phenomena, studied at the Faculty of Science in Paris. The publication first elaborates on Huygens' principle and diffraction phenomena for a monochromatic point source and diffraction by an aperture of simple form. Discussions focus on diffraction... more...

  • An Introduction to the Theory of Diffractionby C. J. Ball; G. E. Bacon

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 31.95

    An Introduction to the Theory of Diffraction presents the fundamentals of diffraction theory. This book discusses other topics, such as absorption in cylindrical or slab-shaped specimens, which do not closely involve the fundamentals of diffraction. Organized into seven chapters, this book begins with an overview of the fundamentals of wave motion... more...

  • Modern Diffraction Methodsby E. J. Mittemeijer; U. Welzel

    Wiley 2013; US$ 196.00

    The role of diffraction methods for the solid-state sciences has been pivotal to determining the (micro)structure of a material. Particularly, the expanding activities in materials science have led to the development of new methods for analysis by diffraction. This book offers an authoritative overview of the new developments in the field of analysis... more...

  • Scattering of Wedges and Cones with Impedance Boundary Conditionsby Mikhail Lyalinov; Ning Yan Zhu

    The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2012; US$ 81.00

    This book is a systematic and detailed exposition of different analytical techniques used in studying two of the canonical problems, the wave scattering by wedges or cones with impedance boundary conditions. It is the first reference on novel, highly efficient analytical-numerical approaches for wave diffraction by impedance wedges or cones. This text... more...

  • Field Guide to Diffractive Opticsby Yakov Soskind

    SPIE 2011; US$ 36.00

    This SPIE Field Guide provides the operational principles and established terminology of diffractive optics as well as a comprehensive overview of the main types of diffractive optics components. An emphasis is placed on the qualitative explanation of the diffraction phenomenon by the use of field distributions and graphs, providing the basis for understanding... more...

  • Structural Biology Using Electrons and X-raysby Michael F Moody

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 89.95

    Structural Biology Using Electrons and X-Rays discusses the diffraction and image-based methods used for the determination of complex biological macromolecules. The book focuses on the Fourier transform theory, which is a mathematical function that is computed to transform signals between time and frequency domain. Composed of five parts, the book... more...

  • The Theory of the Moiré Phenomenonby Isaac Amidror

    Springer London 2009; US$ 149.00

    This book offers the most comprehensive and methodical work on the theory of the moiré phenomenon. This new edition is updated and expanded to include additional topics, more figures, and new and revised problems. It also contains much cross-referencing. more...

  • Somitogenesisby Miguel Maroto; Neil V. Whittock

    Springer New York 2008; US$ 269.00

    This book will be of interest to scientists working in the fields of cell and developmental biology. The chapters cover topics that capture the spirit of this dynamic discipline by integrating contemporary research with the classical embryological literature. more...
