#### Hydrodynamic Fluctuations in Fluids and Fluid Mixtures

Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 99.95This book deals with density, temperature, velocity and concentration fluctuations in fluids and fluid mixtures. The book first reviews thermal fluctuations in equilibrium fluids on the basis of fluctuating hydrodynamics. It then shows how the method of fluctuating hydrodynamics can be extended to deal with hydrodynamic fluctuations when the system... more...

#### Isaac Newton

Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 18.99Part of the "Oxford's Lives and Legacies" series, this book presents a portrait of Isaac Newton and the times in which he lived. It also sheds light on Newton's later life as master of the mint in London, where he managed to convict and hang the arch criminal William Chaloner, and his presidency of the Royal Society. more...

#### The World of Andrei Sakharov

Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 20.99How did Andrei Sakharov, a theoretical physicist and the acknowledged father of the Soviet hydrogen bomb, become a human rights activist and the first Russian to win the Nobel Peace Prize? This study of Andrei Sakharov as a scientist as well as a public figure aims to examine the real context of Sakharov's life. more...

#### Wave Scattering By Small Bodies Of Arbitrary Shapes

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 156.00This book presents analytical formulas which allow one to calculate the S-matrix for the acoustic and electromagnetic wave scattering by small bodies or arbitrary shapes with arbitrary accuracy. Equations for the self-consistent field in media consisting of many small bodies are derived. Applications of these results to ultrasound mammography and electrical... more...

#### The Innermost Kernel

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2005; US$ 99.00The publication of W. Pauli's Scientific Correspondence has motivated a vast research activity on Pauli's role in modern science. This treatise sheds light on the ongoing dialogue between physics and psychology. more...

#### Rarefield Gas Dynamics

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 269.00This book elucidates the methods of molecular gas dynamics or rarefied gas dynamics which treat the problems of gas flows when the discrete molecular effects of the gas prevail under the circumstances of low density, the emphasis being on the basis of the methods, the direct simulation Monte Carlo method applied to the simulation of non-equilibrium... more...

#### Macroscopic Transport Equations for Rarefied Gas Flows

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 99.00The well known transport laws of Navier-Stokes and Fourier fail for the simulation of processes on lengthscales in the order of the mean free path of a particle that is when the Knudsen number is not small enough. Thus, the proper simulation of flows in rarefied gases requires a more detailed description. This book discusses classical and modern methods... more...

#### Vorticity and Vortex Dynamics

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 279.00A comprehensive monograph for scientists, engineers and applied mathematicians, as well as graduate students in fluid dynamics, this book analyzes typical vortex structures in laminar, translational, and turbulent flows, including stratified and rotational fluids. more...

#### Introduction to Wave Scattering, Localization and Mesoscopic Phenomena

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 289.00Waves represent an important topic of study in physics, mathematics, and engineering. This volume is a resource book for those interested in understanding the physics underlying nanotechnology and mesoscopic phenomena. It aims to bridge the gap between the textbooks and research frontiers in wave related topics. more...

#### A Physicist Remembers

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 96.00A Physicist Remembers traces the effort to measure electron charge, spin, and momentum density on atoms and solids and to compare experiment with theory. Since the complexity of electron arrangements leads to subtle property changes in atoms, molecules and solids, theory and experiment have generally differed by about 1%. The Sagamore conferences have... more...
