  • Salam + 50by Michael Duff

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 128.00

    The year 2007 marked not only the centenary of Imperial College London but also the 50th anniversary of the late Nobel Laureate Professor Abdus Salam's arrival at the College. Accordingly, a conference entitled “Salam + 50” organized by the Theoretical Physics Group was held at Imperial College on 7 July 2007.Many distinguished guests... more...

  • Wave Scattering By Small Bodies Of Arbitrary Shapesby Alexander G Ramm

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 156.00

    This 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...

  • A Physicist Remembersby Richard J Weiss

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 96.00

    A 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...

  • A Passion for Discoveryby Peter Freund

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 62.00

    This fascinating book assembles human stories about physicists and mathematicians. Remarkably, these stories cluster around some general themes having to do with the interaction between scientists, and with the impact of historic events — such as the advent of fascism and communism in the twentieth century — on scientists' behavior.... more...

  • The Foundations of Newtonian Scholarshipby Richard Henry Dalitz; Michael Nauenberg

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 128.00

    Newtonian scholarship has taken great steps forward in the last half-century. The recent completion of critical editions of Newton's mathematical papers and of his scientific correspondence, as well as the publication of the first volume of his optical papers and of variant readings of the Principia in the original Latin, have made most of Newton's... more...

  • Analogies in Physics and Lifeby Richard M. Weiner

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 175.00

    Analogies play a fundamental role in science. To understand how and why, at a given moment, a certain analogy was used, one has to know the specific, historical circumstances under which the new idea was developed. This historical background is never presented in scientific articles and quite rarely in books. For the general reader, the undergraduate... more...

  • Julian Schwingerby Yee Jack Ng

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 76.00

    In the post-quantum-mechanics era, few physicists, if any, have matched Julian Schwinger in contributions to and influence on the development of physics. A deep and provocative thinker, Schwinger left his indelible mark on all areas of theoretical physics; an eloquent lecturer and immensely successful mentor, he was gentle, intensely private, and known... more...

  • Nonlinear Conservation Laws, Fluid Systems and Related Topicsby Gui-Qiang Chen

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 172.00

    This book is a collection of lecture notes on Nonlinear Conservation Laws, Fluid Systems and Related Topics delivered at the 2007 Shanghai Mathematics Summer School held at Fudan University, China, by world's leading experts in the field. The volume comprises five chapters that cover a range of topics from mathematical theory and numerical approximation... more...

  • Monte Carlo Methods in Mechanics of Fluid and Gasby Oleg M. Belotserkovskii; Yury Iv Khlopkov

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 136.00

    This book is devoted to analysis of Monte Carlo methods developed in rarefied gas dynamics. Presented is the short history of the development of such methods, described are their main properties, their advantages and deficiencies. It is shown that the contemporary stage in the progress of computational methods cannot be regarded without a complex approach... more...

  • Transport Theory of Inhomogeneous Fluidsby Liudmila Pozhar

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 111.00

    Until 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...
