#### Electromagnetism

Nottingham University Press 2011; US$ 33.95A refreshingly rich and encompassing perspective of our world, this examination demonstrates how, of the four forces of physical nature, it is electromagnetic force that activates nature as well as our bodies and brains. Arguing that electromagnetism plays an indispensable role in virtually all of modern technology, this book conveys how deeply embedded... more...

#### Basic Structures of Reality

Oxford University Press, USA 2011; US$ 48.99In Basic Structures of Reality, Colin McGinn deals with questions of metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of mind from the vantage point of physics. Combining general philosophy with physics, he covers such topics as the definition of matter, the nature of space, motion, gravity, electromagnetic fields, the character of physical knowledge, and... more...

#### Are We There Yet? The Search for a Theory of Everything

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 21.00We live in exciting times. The frontiers of physics have been pushed to unprecedented horizons. The Holy Grail of fundamental physics research today is to find and describe a theory that explains, at least in principle, all physical phenomena, which in turns explains chemistry, biology and other material sciences. This, however, is not without controversy.... more...

#### Field, Force, Energy and Momentum in Classical Electrodynamics

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 89.00For the past 100 years physicists have debated the nature of the momentum of light inside material media. Hermann Minkowski, for example, asserts that within a transparent dielectric the momentum of a photon is the photon’s vacuum momentum multiplied by the refractive index of the dielectric. An opposing theory postulated by Max Abraham, contends... more...

#### Integral Equation Methods for Electromagnetic and Elastic Waves

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2008; US$ 55.00Integral Equation Methods for Electromagnetic and Elastic Waves is an outgrowth of several years of work. There have been no recent books on integral equation methods. There are books written on integral equations, but either they have been around for a while, or they were written by mathematicians. Much of the knowledge in integral equation methods... more...

#### Electromagnetic Scattering using the Iterative Multi-Region Technique

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2007; US$ 40.00In this work, an iterative approach using the finite difference frequency domain method is presented to solve the problem of scattering from large-scale electromagnetic structures. The idea of the proposed iterative approach is to divide one computational domain into smaller subregions and solve each subregion separately. Then the subregion solutions... more...

#### Perfectly Matched Layer (PML) for Computational Electromagnetics

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2007; US$ 40.00This lecture presents the perfectly matched layer (PML) absorbing boundary condition (ABC) used to simulate free space when solving the Maxwell equations with such finite methods as the finite difference time domain (FDTD) method or the finite element method. The frequency domain and the time domain equations are derived for the different forms of... more...

#### Fundamental Aspects of Plasma Chemical Physics

Springer 2011; US$ 139.00"Fundamental Aspects of Plasma Chemical Physics: Thermodynamics" develops basic and advanced concepts of plasma thermodynamics from both classical and statistical points of view. After a refreshment of classical thermodynamics applied to the dissociation and ionization regimes, the book invites the reader to discover the role of electronic... more...

#### Quantum Theory of Near-Field Electrodynamics

Springer 2012; US$ 209.00"Quantum Theory of Near-field Electrodynamics" gives a self-contained account of the fundamental theory of field-matter interaction on a subwavelength scale. The quantum physical behavior of matter (atoms and mesoscopic media) in both classical and quantum fields is treated. The role of local-field effects and nonlocal electrodynamics, and... more...

#### Strongly Correlated Systems

Springer 2011; US$ 209.00This volume presents, for the very first time, an exhaustive collection of those modern theoretical methods specifically tailored for the analysis of Strongly Correlated Systems. Many novel materials, with functional properties emerging from macroscopic quantum behaviors at the frontier of modern research in physics, chemistry and materials science,... more...
