#### Turning Points in Physics

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 31.95Turning Points in Physics is a series of 1958 lectures presented at the Oxford University in Trinity Term. This six-chapter book highlights the interplay between assumptions, theories, and experimental discoveries in physics. The first chapter provides a brief introduction to the physical theory and field physics. The following two chapters cover... more...

#### Electron Beams, Lenses, and Optics

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95Electron Beams, Lenses, and Optics, Volume 2 deals with the aberrations relating to electronic optics. This book discusses the geometrical aberrations of lenses; spherical aberration of electric and magnetic lenses; and measurement of the spherical aberration of various electric and magnetic lenses. The theory of diffraction; influence of space charge... more...

#### High Tc Superconductors

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95There are many theories at present which attempt to explain the property of high-temperature superconductivity in the new breed of superconducting ceramics - however, the electronic structure of these materials is not yet fully understood. The 29 papers in this work present the results from the use of a wide range of spectroscopic techniques, such... more...

#### Special Theory of Relativity

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95Special Theory of Relativity provides a discussion of the special theory of relativity. Special relativity is not, like other scientific theories, a statement about the matter that forms the physical world, but has the form of a condition that the explicit physical theories must satisfy. It is thus a form of description, playing to some extent the... more...

#### Band Structure of Semiconductors

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95Band Structure of Semiconductors provides a review of the theoretical and experimental methods of investigating band structure and an analysis of the results of the developments in this field. The book presents the problems, methods, and applications in the study of band structure. Topics on the computational methods of band structure; band structures... more...

#### Relativistic Point Dynamics

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95Relativistic Point Dynamics focuses on the principles of relativistic dynamics. The book first discusses fundamental equations. The impulse postulate and its consequences and the kinetic energy theorem are then explained. The text also touches on the transformation of main quantities and relativistic decomposition of force, and then discusses fields... more...

#### Fluctuations and Non-Linear Wave Interactions in Plasmas

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95Fluctuations and Non-linear Wave Interactions in Plasmas talks about a theory of fluctuations in a homogenous plasma. The title takes into consideration non-linear wave interactions. The text first presents the statistical description of plasma, and then proceeds to covering non-linear electrodynamic equations. Next, the selection deals with the... more...
