#### 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...

#### A Mathematician's Journeys

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00This book explores facets of Otto Neugebauer's career, his impact on the history and practice of mathematics, and the ways in which his legacy has been preserved or transformed in recent decades, looking ahead to the directions in which the study of the history of science will head in the twenty-first century. Neugebauer, more than any other scholar... more...

#### Semiconductor Statistics

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95Semiconductor Statistics presents statistics aimed at complementing existing books on the relationships between carrier densities and transport effects. The book is divided into two parts. Part I provides introductory material on the electron theory of solids, and then discusses carrier statistics for semiconductors in thermal equilibrium. Of course... 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...

#### Neutron Cross Sections

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 31.95Neutron Cross Sections presents the principles of cross-section measurement and use, as well as sufficient theory so that the general behavior of cross sections is made understandable. This compilation is a direct result of experiences connected with the collection and evaluation of cross-section data during the past eight years at ""Sigma Centre"",... more...

#### Strong and Weak Topology Probed by Surface Science

Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2016; US$ 79.99Christian Pauly demonstrates the strong topological properties of the technologically relevant phase change materials Sb 2 Te 3 and Ge 2 Sb 2 Te 5 by using two powerful techniques for mapping the surface electronic structure: scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS) and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES). In the case of a phase change... more...
