  • Theory and Computation of Electromagnetic Fieldsby Jian-Ming Jin

    Wiley 2015; US$ 145.00

    Reviews the fundamental concepts behind the theory and computation of electromagnetic fields The book is divided in two parts. The first part covers both fundamental theories (such as vector analysis, Maxwell?s equations, boundary condition, and transmission line theory) and advanced topics (such as wave transformation, addition theorems, and... more...

  • The Theory of Space, Time and Gravitationby V. Fock

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 72.95

    The Theory of Space, Time, and Gravitation, 2nd Revised Edition focuses on Relativity Theory and Einstein's Theory of Gravitation and correction of the misinterpretation of the Einsteinian Gravitation Theory. The book first offers information on the theory of relativity and the theory of relativity in tensor form. Discussions focus on comparison... more...

  • Advances in Photovoltaics: Part 4by Gerhard P. Willeke; Eicke R. Weber

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 245.00

    Advances in Photovoltaics: Part Four provides valuable information on the challenges faced during the transformation of our energy supply system to more efficient, renewable energies. The volume discusses the topic from a global perspective, presenting the latest information on photovoltaics, a cornerstone technology. It covers all aspects... more...

  • Schwinger's Quantum Action Principleby Kimball A. Milton

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99

    Starting from the earlier notions of stationary action principles, these tutorial notes shows how Schwinger?s Quantum Action Principle descended from Dirac?s formulation, which independently led Feynman to his path-integral formulation of quantum mechanics. Part I brings out in more detail the connection between the two formulations, and applications... more...

  • Defects in Semiconductorsby Lucia Romano; Vittorio Privitera; Chennupati Jagadish

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 245.00

    This volume, number 91 in the Semiconductor and Semimetals series, focuses on defects in semiconductors. Defects in semiconductors help to explain several phenomena, from diffusion to getter, and to draw theories on materials' behavior in response to electrical or mechanical fields. The volume includes chapters focusing specifically on electron... more...

  • The Bumpy Roadby Massimiliano Badino

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99

    This book examines the different areas of knowledge, traditions, and conceptual resources that contributed to the building of Max Planck?s theory of radiation. It presents an insightful comparative analysis that not only sheds light upon a fundamental chapter in the history of modern physics, but also enlarges our understanding of how theoreticians... more...

  • The Road to Relativityby Hanoch Gutfreund; Jürgen Renn; John Stachel

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 35.00

    This richly annotated facsimile edition of "The Foundation of General Relativity" introduces a new generation of readers to Albert Einstein?s theory of gravitation. Written in 1915, this remarkable document is a watershed in the history of physics and an enduring testament to the elegance and precision of Einstein?s thought. Presented here is a beautiful... more...

  • Relativistische Physik - von der Elektrizität zur Optikby Klaus Lüders; Klaus Lüders; Gebhard Oppen

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 63.00

    The second volume of the reconfigured three-volume Bergmann/Schaefer textbook offers a compact treatment of electricity, optics, and relativity theory. It is oriented to the curriculum of a modern Bachelor's degree program in physics, but is also well suited for other programs with physics as a minor subject, and is published in a new... more...

  • Optical Spectra of Phthalocyanines and Related Compoundsby Hiroaki Isago

    Springer Japan 2015; US$ 79.99

    This book displays how optical (absorption, emission, and magnetic circular dichroism) spectra of phthalocyanines and related macrocyclic dyes can be varied from their prototypical ones depending on conditions. As these compounds can be involved in colorful chemistry (which might be driven by impurities in solvents), their spectra behave like the sea-god... more...

  • Physical Properties of High-Temperature Superconductorsby Rainer Wesche

    Wiley 2015; US$ 198.50

    A much-needed update on complex high-temperature superconductors, focusing on materials aspects; this timely book coincides with a recent major break-through of the discovery of iron-based superconductors.  It provides an overview of materials aspects of high-temperature superconductors, combining introductory aspects, description of new physics,... more...
