  • Thin-Film Optical Filters, Third Editionby H. Angus MacLeod

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 173.95

    Very common optical coatings are those that give the faint, reflected color to the lenses in cameras, binoculars, and spectacles. The thin metal layer that makes the difference between a mirror and a simple sheet of glass is an optical coating. But, optical coatings are used in many more applications-a particularly important current one being the splitting... more...

  • Electrostatic Lens Systems, 2nd editionby D.W.O. Heddle

    CRC Press 2000; US$ 177.95

    Electrostatic Lens Systems: Second Edition enables readers to design lens systems for focusing beams of charged particles that have useful characteristics. The book covers the basic theory of the motion of charged particles in electrostatic fields and describes several methods for the calculation of the potential and field distribution for various... more...

  • Polarised Light in Science and Natureby J. David Pye

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 65.95

    We humans cannot see when light is polarized and this leads to unfortunate misapprehensions about this aspect of nature. Even scientists who should know better often assume that it is an obscure topic of specialized interest in only a few rather isolated areas. In fact, it is a universal feature of our world and most natural light is at least partially... more...

  • The Science of Soccerby John Wesson

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 47.95

    For the first time ever, science gives us the answers to questions like "what's the chance of a team that wins the League or Premiership also winning the Cup? Can you predict how many goals will be scored? What's the best height for footballers? Is the winning team the best team?" The Science of Soccer is a fascinating book, dealing with a wide range... more...

  • Handbook of Moire Measurementby C.A. Walker

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 220.00

    Since its development in the late 1970s, the Moiré Fringe method has become a standard technique for the measurement of the behavior of materials and structures. Edited by one of the co-inventors of the technique, the Handbook of Moiré Measurement brings together a series of extended case studies from recognized experts in the field. The emphasis is... more...

  • On the Metaphysics of Experimental Physicsby Professor Karl Rogers

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 120.00

    This provocative and critical work addresses the question of why scientific realists and positivists consider experimental physics to be a natural and empirical science. Taking insights from contemporary science studies, continental philosophy, and the history of physics, this book describes and analyses the metaphysical presuppositions that underwrite... more...
