#### Introduction To Molecular Beams Gas Dynamics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 116.00 US$ 105.56Introduction to Molecular Beams Gas Dynamics is devoted to the theory and phenomenology of supersonic molecular beams. The book describes the main physical idea and mathematical methods of the gas dynamics of molecular beams, while the detailed derivation of results and equations is accompanied by an explanation of their physical meaning. The phenomenology... more...

#### Oppenheimer And The Manhattan Project

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 31.00 US$ 28.212004 marked the centennial of the birth of J Robert Oppenheimer, and brought historians and scholars, former students, nuclear physicists, and politicians together to celebrate this event. Oppenheimer's life and work became central to 20th century history as he spearheaded the development of the atomic bomb that ended World War II. This book provides... more...

#### Hydrodynamics of Free Surface Flows

Wiley 2007; US$ 165.00 US$ 143.00A definitive guide for accurate state-of-the-art modelling of free surface flows Understanding the dynamics of free surface flows is the starting point of many environmental studies, impact studies, and waterworks design. Typical applications, once the flows are known, are water quality, dam impact and safety, pollutant control, and sediment transport.... more...

#### The Innermost Kernel

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2005; US$ 92.20The publication of W. Pauli's Scientific Correspondence by Springer-Verlag has motivated a vast research activity on Pauli's role in modern science. This excellent treatise sheds light on the ongoing dialogue between physics and psychology. more...

#### Macroscopic Transport Equations for Rarefied Gas Flows

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 65.08The 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... more...

#### Newton

Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2008; US$ 21.95When Newton was not yet twenty-five years old, he formulated calculus, hit upon the idea of gravity, and discovered that white light was made up of all the colors of the spectrum. By 1678, Newton designed a telescope to study the movement of the planets and published Principia , a milestone in the history of science, which set forth his famous laws... more...

#### Pendulum

Atria Books 2007; US$ 19.95In 1851, struggling, self-taught physicist Léon Foucault performed a dramatic demonstration inside the Panthéon in Paris. By tracking a pendulum's path as it swung repeatedly across the interior of the large ceremonial hall, Foucault offered the first definitive proof -- before an audience that comprised the cream of Parisian society, including the... more...
