#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...
