#### Computational Physics

Wiley 2015; US$ 135.00The use of computation and simulation has become an essential part of the scientific process. Being able to transform a theory into an algorithm requires significant theoretical insight, detailed physical and mathematical understanding, and a working level of competency in programming. This upper-division text provides an unusually broad survey... more...

#### Quantum Metrology

Wiley 2015; US$ 190.00The International System of Units (SI) is the world's most widely used system of measurement, used every day in commerce and science, and is the modern form of the metric system. It currently comprises the meter (m), the kilogram (kg), the second (s), the ampere (A), the kelvin (K), the candela (cd) and the mole (mol)). The system is changing though,... more...

#### Advances in Imaging and Electron Physics

Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 245.00Advances in Imaging and Electron Physics merges two long-running serials? Advances in Electronics and Electron Physics and Advances in Optical and Electron Microscopy . The series features extended articles on the physics of electron devices (especially semiconductor devices), particle optics at high and low energies, microlithography, image science... more...

#### Efficient Quadrature Rules for Illumination Integrals

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2015; US$ 36.00Rendering photorealistic images is a costly process which can take up to several days in the case of high quality images. In most cases, the task of sampling the incident radiance function to evaluate the illumination integral is responsible for an important share of the computation time. Therefore, to reach acceptable rendering times, the illumination... more...

#### Materials Behavior

Apple Academic Press 2015; US$ 149.95The development of advanced materials has become extremely important in the last decade, being widely used in academic and industrial research. This book examines the potential of advanced materials as well as nanotechnology to improve fiber science from fibril to fabric mode, to create better materials and products for a variety of aspects. ... more...

#### Epitaxial Growth of Complex Metal Oxides

Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 315.00The atomic arrangement and subsequent properties of a material are determined by the type and conditions of growth leading to epitaxy, making control of these conditions key to the fabrication of higher quality materials. Epitaxial Growth of Complex Metal Oxides reviews the techniques involved in such processes and highlights recent developments... more...

#### The Far Horizons of Time

De Gruyter 2015; US$ 0.00The book raises and resolves specific questions in the physics of time, such as how and why someone can be simultaneous with events that are in fact days apart. It examines further abiding issues in the physics of time, and suggests that such phenomena can only exist because they ultimately obey applicable mathematics. This leads to a... more...

#### Mathematics for Physicists

Wiley 2015; US$ 181.50Mathematics for Physicists is a relatively short volume covering all the essential mathematics needed for a typical first degree in physics, from a starting point that is compatible with modern school mathematics syllabuses. Early chapters deliberately overlap with senior school mathematics, to a degree that will depend on the background of the... more...

#### Superfluid States of Matter

CRC Press 2015; US$ 99.95Covers the State of the Art in Superfluidity and Superconductivity Superfluid States of Matter addresses the phenomenon of superfluidity/superconductivity through an emergent, topologically protected constant of motion and covers topics developed over the past 20 years. The approach is based on the idea of separating universal classical-field... more...

#### Einstein's Dice and Schrödinger's Cat

Basic Books 2015; US$ 27.99When the fuzzy indeterminacy of quantum mechanics overthrew the orderly world of Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Erwin Schrödinger were at the forefront of the revolution. Neither man was ever satisfied with the standard interpretation of quantum mechanics, however, and both rebelled against what they considered the most preposterous aspect of quantum... more...
