#### Applied Charged Particle Optics

Springer 2008; US$ 109.00Provides an introduction of electrostatic lenses and fields used for acceleration, focusing and deflection of ions or electrons. This book contains chapters which give descriptions of electrostatic deflection elements, uniform and non-uniform magnetic sector fields, image aberrations, and fringe field confinement. more...

#### Interactions Between Charged Particles in a Magnetic Field

Springer 2007; US$ 179.00Focusses on the influence of a strong magnetic field on the interactions between charged particles in a many-body system. This work investigates two complementary approaches, the binary collision model and the dielectric theory in both analytical and numerical frameworks. more...

#### Quantum Decoherence

Springer 2006; US$ 129.00Constituting the proceedings of the Poincare Seminar, this volume covers the field of Quantum Decoherence. It gives a broad perspective on the subject, along with presentations of the actual experiments on decoherence both in the mesoscopic systems of atomic physics, and in the "quantronic" or condensed matter context. more...

#### Introduction to Elementary Particle Physics

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 60.00This textbook conveys basic elements of the Standard Model for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students. more...

#### The Complete Idiot's Guide to String Theory

DK Publishing 2008; US$ 18.95Everything is connected... We''re living in the midst of a scientific revolution that''s captured the general public''s attention and imagination. The aim of this new revolution is to develop a "theory of everything"- -- a set of laws of physics that will explain all that can be explained, ranging from the tiniest subatomic particle to the... more...

#### Nuclear Structure Far from Stability

IOS Press 2008; US$ 285.00Gives an account of advances and various perspectives in the study of nuclei far from stability. This book deals with book nuclear structure models and their derivation from the basic nucleon-nucleon interaction. It discusses: the shell model, the interacting boson model and the cluster model. more...

#### Relativistic Collisions of Structured Atomic Particles

Springer 2008; US$ 219.00The book reviews the progress achieved over the last decade in the study of collisions between an ion and an atom in which both the atomic particles carry electrons and can undergo transitions between their internal states - including continua. It presents the detailed considerations of different theoretical approaches that can be used to describe... more...

#### Decoherence and the Quantum-To-Classical Transition

Springer 2007; US$ 99.00A textbook on decoherence and the quantum-to-classical transition. It describes the concepts, formalism, interpretation, and experimental observation of decoherence and explains how decoherence is responsible for the emergence, from the realm of quantum mechanics, of the classical world of our experience. more...

#### Electron Tunneling in Chemistry

Elsevier Science 1989; US$ 72.95In Volume 30, an attempt is made to consider comprehensively both theoretical and experimental data that have been obtained to date on electron tunneling reactions involving chemical compounds of various classes, and to discuss the role played by these reactions in different areas of chemistry. The discussion of the above problem is preceded by a review... more...
