#### Physics of Spin in Solids: Materials, Methods and Applications

Springer 2005; US$ 109.00Most recent publications on spin-related phenomena focus on technological aspects of spin-dependent transport, with emphasis on the specific needs of spintronics. The present publication targets rather fundamental problems related to the physics of spin in solids, such as: (1) manifestation of spin and orbital polarization in spectroscopy, including... more...

#### Statistical Mechanics Of Membranes And Surfaces

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 113.00This invaluable book explores the delicate interplay between geometry and statistical mechanics in materials such as microemulsions, wetting and growth interfaces, bulk lyotropic liquid crystals, chalcogenide glasses and sheet polymers, using tools from the fields of polymer physics, differential geometry, field theory and critical phenomena. Several... more...

#### QCD as a Theory of Hadrons

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 136.00An introduction to the basic theory and recent advances in QCD, for graduates and researchers. more...

#### Computational Methods in Transport

Springer 2006; US$ 179.00Based on a series of lectures given in the Granlibakken workshop was devoted to providing a forum, where computational transport researchers could communicate their methods with their results. This book presents computational transport in mathematics, astrophysics, high energy density physics, atmospheric physics, oceanography, and plant canopies. more...

#### Nuclear Dynamics in the Nucleonic Regime

Taylor and Francis 2000; US$ 231.00Over the last decade one of the most active areas of research in nuclear physics has been the study of systems of nucleons in various dynamical situations. Heavy-ion collisions at beam energies in the range 30-150 MeV per nucleon, where subnucleaonic degrees of freedom can be considered as frozen, allow such systems to be studied in detail. Nuclear... more...

#### Geometry and Physics of Branes

Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 220.00Branes are solitonic configurations of a string theory that are represented by extended objects in a higher-dimensional space-time. They are essential for a comprehension of the non-perturbative aspects of string theory, in particular, in connection with string dualities. From the mathematical viewpoint, branes are related to several important theories,... more...

#### A First Course in String Theory

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 84.00Accessible introduction to string theory for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. more...

#### Particle Physics beyond the Standard Model

Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 110.00The Standard Model of elementary particles and interactions is one of the best tested theories in physics. It has been found to be in remarkable agreement with experiment, and its validity at the quantum level has been successfully probed in the electroweak sector. In spite of its experimental successes, though, the Standard Model suffers from a number... more...
