#### Wissenschaft und Weltbilder

Springer 2014; US$ 19.99Ob wir es wollen oder nicht, die Wissenschaft bestimmt unser Weltbild und unser tagliches Leben auf allen Ebenen. Sie durchdringt unsere Art zu denken und wirft unablassig neue Fragen auf. Wie immer man dazu steht, es lohnt sich, diesen machtigen Faktor in unserem Leben einmal genauer unter die Lupe zu nehmen.Josef Honerkamp stellt sich als Physiker... more...

#### How to Teach Quantum Physics to Your Dog

Oneworld Publications 2010; US$ 10.99In this international bestseller, Orzel explains the key theories of quantum physics, taking his dog Emmy?s anarchic behaviour as a starting point. Could she use quantum tunnelling to get through the neighbour?s fence? How about diffracting round a tree to chase squirrels? From quarks and gluons to Heisenberg?s uncertainty principle, this is a uniquely... more...

#### Physical Foundations of Technical Acoustics

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95Physical Foundations of Technical Acoustics discusses theoretical foundations of acoustical engineering. It is not so much a technical compendium as a systematic statement of physical laws so conceived that technologists might find in it all the information they need to become acquainted with the physical meaning and mathematical expression of phenomena... more...

#### High Frequency and Pulse Scattering

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95High Frequency and Pulse Scattering investigates high frequency and pulse scattering, with emphasis on the phenomenon of echoes from objects. Geometrical and catastrophe optics methods in scattering are discussed, along with the scattering of sound pulses and the ringing of target resonances. Caustics and associated diffraction catastrophes are also... more...

#### Physics Over Easy

World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 56.00In easy-to-follow conversational language, this book reveals the mysteries of physics and tells about the physicists who made it possible, from the discovery of the laws of gravity by Isaac Newton and the construction of the first electric battery by Alessandro Volta, to the present century's development of solid-state electronics, nuclear arms and... more...

#### Theory of Nonlinear Acoustics in Fluids

Springer 2002; US$ 152.00This text presents theoretical nonlinear acoustics in fluids with equal stress on physical foundations and mathematical methods. From first principles in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics a universal mathematical model (Kuznetsov's equation) of nonlinear acoustics is developed. more...

#### The Physics of Vibrations and Waves

Wiley 2013; US$ 83.00The main theme of this highly successful book is that the transmission of energy by wave propogation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics. Therefore, besides giving students a thorough grounding in the theory of waves and vibrations, the book also demonstrates the pattern and unity of a large part of physics. This new edition has been... more...

Fundamental Laws of the Microscopic World Absorption of Penetrating Radiation in a Condensed Medium BASIC MECHANISMS OF SOUND GENERATION BY PENETRATING RADIATION IN CONDENSED MEDIA Mechanisms Connected with Heat Release Thermoradiation Generation of Sound Initiation of Microshock... more...

#### Fundamentals of Acoustics

ISTE 2006; US$ 179.00The objective of this book is to provide a fundamental grounding in acoustics necessary for an understanding of the scientific and technical literature in this area, while also presenting the major applications of acoustic engineering. The coverage is limited to acoustics in fluids and the methods explained most often use an analytical approach. The... more...

#### Fundamentals Of Ocean Acoustics

Springer 2006; US$ 139.00This volume provides an up-to-date introduction to the theory of sound propagation in the ocean. It should be of interest to oceanographers, physicists and engineers dealing with underwater sound and naval architects. more...
