#### At the Root of Things

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95At the Root of Things: The Subatomic World is a journey into the world of elementary particles?the basic constituents of all matter in the universe?and the nature of the interactions among them. The book begins with a summary of pre-quantum physics and later tackles quantum physics, which is essential for the study of elementary particles. The... more...

#### Atomic and Molecular Beams

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 199.95Atomic and molecular beams are employed in physics and chemistry experiments and, to a lesser extent, in the biological sciences. These beams enable atoms to be studied under collision-free conditions and allow the study of their interaction with other atoms, charged particles, radiation, and surfaces. Atomic and Molecular Beams: Production and Collimation... more...

#### The Physics of Living Processes

Wiley 2014; US$ 82.50This full-colour undergraduate textbook, based on a two semester course, presents the fundamentals of biological physics, introducing essential modern topics that include cells, polymers, polyelectrolytes, membranes, liquid crystals, phase transitions, self-assembly, photonics, fluid mechanics, motility, chemical kinetics, enzyme kinetics, systems... more...

#### Differential Geometry and Kinematics of Continua

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 75.00This book provides definitions and mathematical derivations of fundamental relationships of tensor analysis encountered in nonlinear continuum mechanics and continuum physics, with a focus on finite deformation kinematics and classical differential geometry. Of particular interest are anholonomic aspects arising from a multiplicative decomposition... more...

#### Molecular Plasmonics

Wiley 2014; US$ 86.50Adopting a novel approach, this book provides a unique "molecular perspective" on plasmonics, concisely presenting the fundamentals and applications in a way suitable for beginners entering this hot field as well as for experienced researchers and practitioners. It begins by introducing readers to the optical effects that occur at the nanoscale and... more...

#### Quantum Fractals

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00Starting with numerical algorithms resulting in new kinds of amazing fractal patterns on the sphere, this book describes the theory underlying these phenomena and indicates possible future applications. The book also explores the following questions: -->: What are fractals?; How do fractal patterns emerge from quantum observations and relativistic... more...

#### The Special Theory of Relativity bound with Relativity: A Very Elementary Exposition

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00The Special Theory of Relativity: Based on a short course of lectures delivered in the late 1930s, this short book presents the theory of Special Relativity by formulating a redefinition of the measurement of length, and thus will appeal to students of physics who wish to think through Einstein?s thought without the encumbrance of quasi-scientific... more...

#### Nature's Longest Threads

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 88.00Organisms endowed with life show a sense of awareness, interacting with and learning from the universe in and around them. Each level of interaction involves transfer of information of various kinds, and at different levels. Each thread of information is interlinked with the other, and woven together, these constitute the universe — both the... more...

#### Fractal Physics

Troubador Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 9.99When the collapse of a super massive black hole is recorded it will probably be reported that a black hole has disappeared. This book is the only publication to date that has predicted the event in advance and has documented the physics required to explain how and why this is an event that occurs frequently in the universe. more...

#### Introduction to Quantum Field Theory

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 164.95This text explains the features of quantum and statistical field systems that result from their field-theoretic nature and are common to different physical contexts. It supplies the practical tools for carrying out calculations and discusses the meaning of the results. The central concept is that of effective action (or free energy), and the main technical... more...
