#### Transport Theory of Inhomogeneous Fluids

World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 111.00Until recently, the Mori-Zwanzig projection operator method, though powerful and simple, has been considered as a half-heuristic one. This book is devoted to a rigorous generalization of this method as well as its applications to nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. The well-known idea of the description of dynamical system evolution in terms of collective... more...

#### Once Upon Einstein

CRC Press 2006; US$ 35.95" Upon Einstein is a quirky and delightful introduction to Einstein's ideas relayed in a friendly voice of a story teller."" -Alan Lightman, Author Of Einstein's Dreams , December 2005 ""This is quite a wonderful book, unusual in several ways, and eminently readable. It should be of interest, and of use, to a number of different kinds of reader,... more...

#### Discrete Models of Fluid Dynamics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1991; US$ 124.00Recent developments of discrete methods of fluid dynamics, particularly the two most relevant aspects: the "half" discrete case — discrete Boltzmann equation; and the "totally" discrete one — lattice gas were discussed. Both the conceptual and numerical significance of these discrete models were covered as well as the... more...

#### Recent Developments in Cavitation Mechanisms

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 200.00How does cavitation start? Presently, the nucleus theory provides the answer to this fundamental question. However the idea of nuclei contains inaccuracies that cannot be rationalized. Recent Developments in Cavitation Mechanisms discusses the uncertainties surrounding the nucleus theory, and proposes another theory of cavitation mechanism. Characteristically,... more...

#### Isaac Newton pocket GIANTS

The History Press 2015; US$ 10.19Isaac Newton had an extraordinary idea. He believed the physical universe and everything in it could be described in exact detail using mathematical relationships. He formulated a law of gravity that explained why objects fall downwards, how the moon causes the tides, and why planets and comets orbit the sun. While Newton's work has been added to... more...
