#### The Landscape of Free Fermionic Gauge Models

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00In this thesis, the author describes the development of a software framework to systematically construct a particular class of weakly coupled free fermionic heterotic string models, dubbed gauge models. In their purest form, these models are maximally supersymmetric (N = 4), and thus only contain superpartners in their matter sector. This feature makes... more...

#### 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...

#### Strain Mechanisms in Lead-Free Ferroelectrics for Actuators

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00This book addresses and analyzes the mechanisms responsible for functionality of two technologically relevant materials, giving emphasis on the relationship between structural transitions and electromechanical properties. The author investigates the atomic crystal structure and microstructure by means of thermal analysis, as well as diffraction and... more...

#### Hard X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (HAXPES)

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00This book provides the first complete and up-to-date summary of the state of the art in HAXPES and motivates readers to harness its powerful capabilities in their own research. The chapters are written by experts. They include historical work, modern instrumentation, theory and applications. This book spans from physics to chemistry and materials science... 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...

#### Men of Physics: L. D. Landau

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95Men of Physics: L D. Landau, Vol. 1: Low Temperature and Solid State Physics is a compilation of the most important scientific contributions of L. D. Landau, Nobel Prize winner in Physics for 1962. This volume contains eight papers that elucidate the theories of Helium II, Fermi liquids, superconductivity, electron diamagnetism, and ferromagnetism.... 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...

#### Mathematical Foundations of Thermodynamics

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95Mathematical Foundations of Thermodynamics details the core concepts of the mathematical principles employed in thermodynamics. The book discusses the topics in a way that physical meanings are assigned to the theoretical terms. The coverage of the text includes the mechanical systems and adiabatic processes; topological considerations; and equilibrium... more...

#### Control of Self-Organizing Nonlinear Systems

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00The book summarizes the state-of-the-art of research on control of self-organizing nonlinear systems with contributions from leading international experts in the field. The first focus concerns recent methodological developments including control of networks and of noisy and time-delayed systems. As a second focus, the book features emerging concepts... more...
