#### Mechanics

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95Mechanics: Lectures on Theoretical Physics, Volume I covers a general course on theoretical physics. The book discusses the mechanics of a particle; the mechanics of systems; the principle of virtual work; and d?alembert?s principle. The text also describes oscillation problems; the kinematics, statics, and dynamics of a rigid body; the theory of relative... more...

#### Large Strain Finite Element Method

Wiley 2014; US$ 134.00 US$ 116.13An introductory approach to the subject of large strains and large displacements in finite elements. Large Strain Finite Element Method: A Practical Course , takes an introductory approach to the subject of large strains and large displacements in finite elements and starts from the basic concepts of finite strain deformability, including finite... more...

#### Introduction to Group Theory with Applications

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Introduction to Group Theory with Applications covers the basic principles, concepts, mathematical proofs, and applications of group theory. This book is divided into 13 chapters and begins with discussions of the elementary topics related to the subject, including symmetry operations and group concepts. The succeeding chapters deal with the properties... more...

#### Optimized Response-Adaptive Clinical Trials

Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2014; US$ 60.26Two-armed response-adaptive clinical trials are modelled as Markov decision problems to pursue two overriding objectives: Firstly, to identify the superior treatment at the end of the trial and, secondly, to keep the number of patients receiving the inferior treatment small. Such clinical trial designs are very important, especially for rare diseases.... more...

#### Computational Physics

Wiley 2015; US$ 135.00 US$ 117.00The use of computation and simulation has become an essential part of the scientific process. Being able to transform a theory into an algorithm requires significant theoretical insight, detailed physical and mathematical understanding, and a working level of competency in programming. This upper-division text provides an unusually broad survey... more...

#### Mathematical Physics

University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 41.00Mathematical Physics is an introduction to such basic mathematical structures as groups, vector spaces, topological spaces, measure spaces, and Hilbert space. Geroch uses category theory to emphasize both the interrelationships among different structures and the unity of mathematics. Perhaps the most valuable feature of the book is the illuminating... more...

#### A Career in Theoretical Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 54.00 US$ 49.14Theoretical physicist and Nobel Laureate Philip Anderson has been described as one of the most imaginative of condensed matter physicists working today. His achievements have not merely constituted significant discoveries in their own right, but have also frequently set the agenda for the work of others. His pioneering contributions include the Anderson... more...

#### Knots And Physics (Third Edition)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 79.00 US$ 71.89This invaluable book is an introduction to knot and link invariants as generalised amplitudes for a quasi-physical process. The demands of knot theory, coupled with a quantum-statistical framework, create a context that naturally and powerfully includes an extraordinary range of interrelated topics in topology and mathematical physics. The author takes... more...

#### Fundamentals of the Finite Element Method for Heat and Fluid Flow

Wiley 2004; US$ 155.00 US$ 134.33Heat transfer is the area of engineering science which describes the energy transport between material bodies due to a difference in temperature. The three different modes of heat transport are conduction, convection and radiation. In most problems, these three modes exist simultaneously. However, the significance of these modes depends on the problems... more...
