#### Physics before and after Einstein

IOS Press 2005; US$ 147.00It is now a century ago that one of the icons of modern physics published some of the most influential scientific papers of all times. With his work on relativity and quantum theory, Albert Einstein has altered the field of physics forever. It should not come as a surprise that looking back at Einstein's work, one needs to rethink the whole scope of... more...

#### Thin Film Micro-Optics

Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 143.00"Thin-film microoptics" stands for novel types of microoptical components and systems which combine the well-known features of miniaturized optical elements with the specific advantages of thin optical layers. This approach enables for innovative solutions in shaping light fields in spatial, temporal and spectral domain. Low-dispersion and small-angle... more...

#### Unstable Singularities and Randomness

Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 170.00Traditionally, randomness and determinism have been viewed as being diametrically opposed, based on the idea that causality and determinism is complicated by ?noise.” Although recent research has suggested that noise can have a productive role, it still views noise as a separate entity. This work suggests that this not need to be so. In an informal... more...

#### The Transition from Higher Education into Work - Tales of Cohesion and Fragmentation

Emerald Group Publishing Limited 2007; US$ 199.00This ebook explores the transition from higher education into work. It reports on research undertaken over period of two years and which sought to track a number of young graduates as they completed their studies and embarked upon career of choice. Five cases are presented; the stories of five of the graduates over the course of one year. Story lines... more...

#### Periodically Correlated Random Sequences

Wiley 2007; US$ 146.00Uniquely combining theory, application, and computing, this book explores the spectral approach to time series analysis The use of periodically correlated (or cyclostationary) processes has become increasingly popular in a range of research areas such as meteorology, climate, communications, economics, and machine diagnostics. Periodically Correlated... more...

#### The Random-Cluster Model

Springer 2006; US$ 125.00The random-cluster model is a key tool in the mathematical study of ferromagnetism. This study includes accounts of the subcritical and supercritical phases, with statements of important open problems. It covers the first-order (discontinuous) phase transition, and applications of the random-cluster method to other models of statistical physics. more...

#### Advances in Fractional Calculus

Springer 2007; US$ 259.00In the last two decades, fractional (or non integer) differentiation has played a very important role in various fields such as mechanics, electricity, chemistry, biology, economics, control theory and signal and image processing. For example, in the last three fields, some important considerations such as modelling, curve fitting, filtering, pattern... more...

#### A New Foundation of Physical Theories

Springer 2007; US$ 189.00Aims to clarify and formulate the fundamental ideas of physical theories. Suitable for both physicists and philosophers of science, this book introduces the concept of idealization and reviews the process of discovering new concepts. more...
