#### Heat and Concentration Waves

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Heat and Concentration Waves: Analysis and Applications describes the behavior of a limited class of waves of temperature or concentration that travels in a continuous medium, which itself is moving. This book is organized into nine chapters that discuss wave equations as solutions to linear differential equations. After briefly dealing with the fundamentals... more...

#### Tabibito (The Traveller)

World Scientific Publishing Company 1981; US$ 98.00This is Yukawa's autobiography of his early years, written in Japanese when he was fifty years old. It describes his family background and the education and experience, both social and intellectual, that helped to form his character and direct his career. Especially valuable to the historian of science are his discussions of scientific relationships... more...

#### Applications of Pade' Approximation Theory in Fluid Dynamics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 128.00Although Padé presented his fundamental paper at the end of the last century, the studies on Padé's approximants only became significant in the second part of this century.Padé procedure is related to the theory of continued fractions, and some convergence theorems can be expressed only in terms of continued fractions. Further,... more...

#### Salam + 50

World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 128.00The 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.

#### A Passion for Discovery

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 62.00This 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 Correspondence of Michael Faraday, Volume 3

The Institution of Engineering and Technology 1996; US$ 159.00Michael Faraday was without doubt one of the most important scientists of the nineteenth century; His discoveries of electromagnetic rotation and electromagnetic induction laid the foundations of the modern electricity industry. Almost 75% of the letters in Volume 3 were previously unpublished. During this period he discovered the magneto-optical effect... more...

#### The Correspondence of Michael Faraday, Volume 4

The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2008; US$ 159.00This volume includes 70% of previously unpublished letters of Michael Farday spanning half of the 1850s and most of 1860.

#### Julian Schwinger

World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 76.00In 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...

#### The Foundations of Newtonian Scholarship

World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 128.00Newtonian 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...

#### Einstein's Physics

Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 49.99Many regard Albert Einstein as the greatest physicist since Newton. What exactly did he do that is so important in physics? We provide an introduction to his physics at a level accessible to an undergraduate physics student. All equations are worked out in detail from the beginning. Einstein's doctoral thesis and his Brownian motion paper were... more...
