#### Discrete Integrable Systems

Springer 2010; US$ 179.00This book is devoted to Quisped, Roberts, and Thompson (QRT) maps, considered as automorphisms of rational elliptic surfaces. The theory of QRT maps arose from problems in mathematical physics, involving difference equations. The application of QRT maps to these and other problems in the literature, including Poncelet mapping and the elliptic billiard,... more...

#### Separable Boundary-Value Problems in Physics

Wiley 2011; US$ 145.00 US$ 125.67Innovative developments in science and technology require a thorough knowledge of applied mathematics, particularly in the field of differential equations and special functions. These are relevant in modeling and computing applications of electromagnetic theory and quantum theory, e.g. in photonics and nanotechnology. The problem of solving partial... more...

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 78.00This book presents a survey of Topology and Differential Geometry and also, Lie Groups and Algebras, and their Representations. The first topic is indispensable to students of gravitation and related areas of modern physics, (including string theory) while the second has applications in gauge theory and particle physics, integrable systems and nuclear... more...

#### Quantum Theory of Condensed Matter

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 37.00Ever since 1911, the Solvay Conferences have shaped modern physics. The 24th edition chaired by Bertrand Halperin did not break the tradition. Held in October 2008, it gathered in Brussels most of the leading figures working on the quantum theory of condensed matter, addressing some of the most profound open problems in the field. The proceedings contain... more...
