#### Discovering Superconductivity

Wiley 2012; US$ 51.95Superconductivity is a quantum phenomenon that manifests itself in materials showing zero electrical resistance below a characteristic temperature resulting in the potential for an electric current to run continually through such a material without the need for a power source. Such materials are used extensively in medical and power applications, e.g.... more...

#### Electrons and Phonons in Semiconductor Multilayers

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 48.00A second edition with four new chapters for graduate students and researchers in semiconductor physics. more...

#### Electromagnetic Wave Theory

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 93.95International Series of Monographs in Electromagnetic Waves, Volume 11: Electromagnetic Wave Theory, Part 1 covers the proceedings of an International Scientific Radio Union (U.R.S.I.) Symposium on Electromagnetic Wave Theory. The book contains 61 chapters that are organized into three sections. The first section presents papers about wave propagation,... more...

#### Mesoscopic Theories of Heat Transport in Nanosystems

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 109.00This book presents generalized heat-conduction laws which, from a mesoscopic perspective, are relevant to new applications (especially in nanoscale heat transfer, nanoscale thermoelectric phenomena, and in diffusive-to-ballistic regime) and at the same time keep up with the pace of current microscopic research. The equations presented in the book are... more...

#### Eddington's Search for a Fundamental Theory

Cambridge University Press 1995; US$ 60.00This 1995 book describes the development of theoretical physics in the first half of this century from the viewpoint of the astrophysicist Arthur Eddington. more...

#### Ideengeschichte der Physik

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 59.99Die Ideengeschichte der Physik geht neue Wege, indem sie den umfangreichen historischen Stoff nicht additiv darstellt, sondern wissenschaftstheoretisch reflektiert und nach thematischen Leitlinien (Materievorstellungen, Raum und Zeit, Erhaltungskonzepte, Extremalprinzipien, Theorie und Experiment) strukturiert. Damit vermittelt diese Darstellung im... more...

#### Inertia and Gravitation

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 49.99This book focuses on the phenomena of inertia and gravitation, one objective being to shed some new light on the basic laws of gravitational interaction and the fundamental nature and structures of spacetime. Chapter 1 is devoted to an extensive, partly new analysis of the law of inertia. The underlying mathematical and geometrical structure of Newtonian... more...

#### Interacting Bosons in Nuclear Physics

Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00During the week of June 6-9, 1978, a group of 36 physicists from 15 countries met in Erice, Sicily, for the first specialized seminar on "Interacting Bosons in Nuclear Physics". The countries represented were Argentina, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, the Federal Republic of Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, the United... more...

#### Introduction to Nuclear Radiation Detectors

Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00There have been many interesting developments in the field of nuclear radiation detectors, especially in those using semiconduct ing materials. The purpose of this book is to present a survey of the developments in semiconductor detectors along with discus sions about gas counters and scintillation counters. These discus sions are directed to detector... more...

#### Lectures on the Forces of Matter

The Floating Press 2009; US$ 6.95The pleasure which all derive from the expositions of Faraday is of a somewhat different kind to that produced by any other philosopher whose lectures we have ever attended. It is partially derived from his extreme dexterity as an operator with him we have no chance of apologies for an unsucessful experiment, no hanging fire in the midst of a series... more...
