#### Popularization and People

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95The Niels Bohr Collected Works are now complete with the publication of Volume 12, Popularization and People (1911-1962). Niels Bohr is generally regarded as one of the most influential physicists of the twentieth century. The following are only some of the high points. In 1913, Bohr proposed a revolutionary model of the atom breaking with classical... more...

#### The Political Arena (1934-1961)

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95Part I is devoted to Niels Bohr's mission to promote an "open world" between nations, that is, full sharing of information in the scientific and technical, as well as in the cultural spheres the scientific and technical, as well as in the cultural spheres. He started his mission immediately upon escaping from Nazi-occupied Denmark in the autumn of... more...

#### Evaporation and Evapotranspiration

Springer 2012; US$ 129.00The book is a thorough presentation of theoretical and applied aspects of the evaporation and evapotranspiration process supported by data from experimental studies. It is written in a way that the theoretical background of evaporation and evapotranspiration estimation is presented in a simplified manner, comprehensive to most technical readers. The... more...

#### Quantum Dynamical Semigroups and Applications

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 59.95Reinvigorated by advances and insights, in particular from the active fields of quantum information and computing, the quantum theory of irreversible processes has recently attracted growing attention. This volume introduces the very basic concepts of semigroup dynamics of open quantum systems and reviews a variety of modern applications. The present... more...

Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 84.00Comprehensive advanced textbook on thermodynamics for Earth scientists, suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate students. more...

#### Mathematical Models of Convection

De Gruyter 2012; US$ 154.00Phenomena of convection are abundant in nature as well as in industry. This volume addresses the subject of convection from the point of view of both, theory and application. While the first three chapters provide a refresher on fluid dynamics and heat transfer theory, the rest of the book describes the modern developments in theory. Thus... more...

#### Transient Heat Transfer

Springer 2011; US$ 49.95This book presents a new and direct computational method for transient heat transfer. The approach uses the well-known dimensionless Biot number and a second dimensionless number introduced by the author. The methodology allows for a transient heat transfer calculations without using finite difference programs. The book presents many examples and various... more...

#### Engineering Heat Transfer

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 209.00This book serves as a concise reference for the fast solution of practical problems in heat transmission. It analyzes heat transfer by radiation, illustrates the required behavior when examining heat transfer in heat exchangers, and discusses pressure drops. more...

#### Handbook for Heat Exchangers and Tube Banks design

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 159.00The motion of fluids is never in parallel- or counter-flow in heat exchangers and tube banks, leading to complexities in the equations for calculating their transferred heat and temperatures. This review of the topic includes 70 design and verification tables. more...
