#### Random Matrices and Iterated Random Functions

Springer 2013; US$ 139.00Random Matrices are one of the major research areas in modern probability theory, due to their prominence in many different fields such as nuclear physics, statistics, telecommunication, free probability, non-commutative geometry, and dynamical systems. A great deal of recent work has focused on the study of spectra of large random matrices on the... more...

#### Mathematics and Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1986; US$ 228.00Mathematics + Physics: Lectures on Recent Results more...

#### Quantum Groups and their Applications in Physics

IOS Press 1996; US$ 214.00This book focuses on quantum groups, i.e., continuous deformations of Lie groups, and their applications in physics. These algebraic structures have been studied in the last decade by a growing number of mathematicians and physicists, and are found to underlie many physical systems of interest. They do provide, in fact, a sort of common algebraic ground... more...

#### Hadronic Transport Coefficients from Effective Field Theories

Springer 2013; US$ 129.00This dissertation focuses on the calculation of transport coefficients in the matter created in a relativistic heavy-ion collision after chemical freeze-out. This matter can be well approximated using a pion gas out of equilibrium. We describe the theoretical framework needed to obtain the shear and bulk viscosities, the thermal and electrical conductivities... more...

#### The Theory of Critical Phenomena

Clarendon Press 1992; US$ 84.99The successful calculation of critical exponents for continuous phase transitions is one of the main achievements of theoretical physics over the last quarter-century. This was achieved through the use of scaling and field-theoretic techniques which have since become standard equipment in many areas of physics, especially quantum field theory. This... more...

#### Differential Geometry for Physicists and Mathematicians

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 129.00This is a book that the author wishes had been available to him when he was student. It reflects his interest in knowing (like expert mathematicians) the most relevant mathematics for theoretical physics, but in the style of physicists. This means that one is not facing the study of a collection of definitions, remarks, theorems, corollaries, lemmas,... more...

#### Topics in Mathematical Physics General Relativity and Cosmology

World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 339.00One of modern science's most famous and controversial figures, Jerzy Plebanski was an outstanding theoretical physicist and an author of many intriguing discoveries in general relativity and quantum theory. Known for his exceptional analytic talents, explosive character, inexhaustible energy, and bohemian nights with brandy, coffee, and enormous... more...

#### The Beauty of Mathematics in Science

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 220.00This book is a tribute to the life and work of J Q Chen. The contributions of Chen to nuclear and molecular physics are discussed vis-à-vis present developments in these fields. Among other subjects, the present status of microscopic theories of the interacting boson model in nuclear physics and the theory of symmetry adaptation of molecular vibrations... more...

#### Connections Between Algebra, Combinatorics, and Geometry

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00Commutative algebra, combinatorics, and algebraic geometry are thriving areas of mathematical research with a rich history of interaction. Connections Between Algebra and Geometry contains lecture notes, along with exercises and solutions, from the Workshop on Connections Between Algebra and Geometry held at the University of Regina from May 29-June... more...

#### Lie Theory and Its Applications in Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 88.00There is an apparent trend towards geometrization of physical theories. During the last 20 years, the most successful mathematical models for the description and understanding of physical systems have been based on the Lie theory in its widest sense and various generalizations, for example, deformations of it. This proceedings volume reflects part... more...
