- Springer 2010; US$ 219.00
This book features tutorial-like chapters on ultrafast intense laser science by world-leading scientists who are active in the rapidly developing interdisciplinary research field. It is written to give a comprehensive survey of all the essential aspects of ultrafast intense laser science. The volume covers theories of atoms and molecules in intense... more...

This book is a compilation of the proceedings from Ferroelectrics UK 2001. This annual meeting is designed to bring together industrial and academic researchers and developers in the UK so that they can exchange knowledge and expertise. The papers deal with a broad range of topics covering the physics, chemistry and materials science/engineering of... more...

R.I.G Hughes presents a series of eight philosophical essays on the theoretical practices of physics. The first two essays examine these practices as they appear in physicists' treatises (e.g. Newton's Principia and Opticks) and journal articles (by Einstein, Bohm and Pines, Aharonov and Bohm). By treating these publications as texts, Hughes... more...

In classical Newtonian mechanics, equations and formulas never change form. The same cannot be said about equations and formulas of electromagnetic theory, which often change form when converted from one system of units to another. Douglas Cohen provides exactly what the technical professional needs: a thorough explanation of how to convert electromagnetic... more...

The book is devoted to the physics of plasma at high density, which has been compressed so strongly that the effects of interparticle interactions and non-ideality govern its behavior. Interest in this non-traditional plasma has been generated in recent years when states of matter with high concentration of energy became accessible experimentally as... more...

The primary focus of this thesis is to theoretically describe nanokelvin experiments in cold atomic gases, which offer the potential to revolutionize our understanding of strongly correlated many-body systems. The thesis attacks major challenges of the field: it proposes and analyzes experimental protocols to create new and interesting states of matter... more...

A 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...

In 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...

We 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...

For 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 photons vacuum momentum multiplied by the refractive index of the dielectric. An opposing theory postulated by Max Abraham, contends... more...
