  • Nonequilibrium and Irreversibilityby Giovanni Gallavotti

    Springer 2014; US$ 109.00

    This book concentrates on the properties of the stationary states in chaotic systems of particles or fluids, leaving aside the theory of the way they can be reached. The stationary states of particles or of fluids (understood as probability distributions on microscopic configurations or on the fields describing continua) have received important new... more...

  • Philosophie der Physikby Norman Sieroka

    C.H. Beck 2014; US$ 8.45

    Dieser Band bietet eine systematische und allgemeinverständliche Einführung in philosophische Fragestellungen der Physik und ihre historische Entwicklung. Er beginnt mit der Darstellung wichtiger Stationen der Physikgeschichte in der Antike, der Frühen Neuzeit und den vergangenen zwei Jahrhunderten und zeigt an ihnen zentrale erkenntnistheoretische... more...

  • Ion Beam Analysisby Michael Nastasi; James W. Mayer; Yongqiang Wang

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 129.95

    Ion Beam Analysis: Fundamentals and Applications explains the basic characteristics of ion beams as applied to the analysis of materials, as well as ion beam analysis (IBA) of art/archaeological objects. It focuses on the fundamentals and applications of ion beam methods of materials characterization. The book explains how ions interact with solids... more...

  • Graphene Optoelectronicsby Abdul Rashid bin M. Yusoff

    Wiley 2014; US$ 120.95

    This first book on emerging applications for this innovative material gives an up-to-date account of the many opportunities graphene offers high-end optoelectronics. The text focuses on potential as well as already realized applications, discussing metallic and passive components, such as transparent conductors and smart windows, as well as high-frequency... more...

  • Opa, was macht ein Physikerby Siegfried Hess

    Wiley 2014; US$ 21.95

    Im Alter 13 oder 14 Jahren bekam der Autor das Buch Evolution der Physik von Einstein und Infeld in die Hand bekam und versuchte darin zu lesen. Es war nicht fuer Kinder geschrieben, aber ohne dieses Buch waere er wahrscheinlich nicht Physiker geworden. Die Idee zu diesem Manuskript entstand vor ein Paar Jahren, als die Enkelkinder des Autors fragten:... more...

  • Scientific Realism in Particle Physicsby Matthias Egg

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 112.00

    Does particle physics really describe the basic constituents of the material world or is it just a useful tool for deriving empirical predictions? This book proposes a novel answer to that question, emphasizing the importance of causal reasoning for the justification of scientific claims. It thereby responds to general worries about scientific realism... more...

  • Self-Organization of Hot Plasmasby Yu.N. Dnestrovskij

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    In this monograph the author presents the Canonical Profile Transport Model or CPTM as a rather general mathematical framework to simulate plasma discharges.The description of hot plasmas in a magnetic fusion device is a very challenging task and many plasma properties still lack a physical explanation. One important property is plasma self-organization.It... more...

  • Physics of Wurtzite Nitrides and Oxidesby Bernard Gil

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This book gives a survey of the current state of the art of a special class of nitrides semiconductors, Wurtzite Nitride and Oxide Semiconductors. It includes properties, growth and applications. Research in the area of nitrides semiconductors is still booming although some basic materials sciences issues were solved already about 20 years ago. With... more...

  • Impact-Activated Solidification of Cornstarch and Water Suspensionsby Scott R. Waitukaitis

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis approaches impact resistance in dense suspensions from a new perspective. The most well-known example of dense suspensions, a mixture of cornstarch and water, provides enough impact resistance to allow a person to run across its surface. In the past, this phenomenon had been linked to 'shear thickening' under a steady shear state... more...
