  • Quantenmechanische Untersuchungen der Photoisomerisierung von Retinal Modellchromophorenby Igor Schapiro

    Diplomica Verlag 2012; US$ 42.20

    Hauptbeschreibung Die hocheffiziente Photoisomerisierung des Retinals wurde im Rahmen dieser Arbeit mit quantenmechanischen Methoden untersucht. Angefangen vom kleinen, minimalen Modell bis zum kompletten Retinal eingebettet im Protein wurden Moleküldynamiksimulationen durchgeführt. In allen Rechnungen wurde die Multikonfigurationsmethode CASSCF... more...

  • Understanding Viscoelasticityby Nhan Phan-Thien

    Springer 2013; US$ 89.95

    This book presents an introduction to viscoelasticity; in particular, to the theories of dilute polymer solutions and dilute suspensions of rigid particles in viscous and incompressible fluids. These theories are important, not just because they apply to practical problems of industrial interest, but because they form a solid theoretical base upon... more...

  • Das 'Prinzip Störung' in den Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaftenby Carsten Gansel; Norman Ächtler

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 119.00

    This collected volume aims to generate a concise theoretical presentation of the "perturbation principle" in the humanities and the natural sciences. Incorporating findings from natural scientific research, the contributors attempt to take further steps along the way to a general "theory of perturbation." more...

  • Andrei Sakharov: Quarks and the Structure of Matterby Harry J. Lipkin

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 18.00

    In 1980, the Cold War was in full bloom. The Soviet father of the hydrogen bomb and Nobel Peace Laureate turned dissident physicist, Andrei Sakharov, had been exiled to Gorki by the Soviet authorities. Called “senile” and under heavy Soviet censorship, Sakharov had a hard time communicating his latest scientific results to readers outside... more...

  • The Correspondence of Michael Faraday, Volume 2by F. James

    The Institution of Engineering and Technology 1993; US$ 159.00

    Volume 2 covers the 1830s, a period when Faraday pursued the consequences of his discovery of electromagnetic induction and revised entirely the theories of electrochemistry and the nature of electricity.His correspondents include scientists of the day as well as antiquaries, military men, artists and politicians. more...

  • Mathematical Essaysby Chuan-Chih Hsiung

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1983; US$ 113.00

    This is a collection of research papers published in various mathematical journals by friends, colleagues and former students of Professor Buchin Su in honor of his 80th birthday and 50th year of educational work.Professor Su was born in 1902 in Pingyang County, Zhejiang Province, People's Republic of China. He received the degree of Bachelor of... more...

  • A Festschrift for Vernon Hughesby M.E. Zeuer

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1992; US$ 128.00

    The contents of this book are derived from a celebration of the 70th birthday of Vernon W Hughes. Professor Hughes' career has touched on several areas in modern physics ranging from precision measurements of the fundamental properties of atoms to measurements of spin structure functions of the proton via deep inelastic muon scattering at the... more...

  • The Correspondence of Michael Faraday, Volume 1by F. James

    The Institution of Engineering and Technology 1991; US$ 159.00

    The initial volume of the correspondence of Micahel Faraday (1791-1867), published in the year of the bicentenary of his birth, covers his early years up to his discovery of electromagnetic induction in 1831. Other scientific and technical topics covered include Faraday's discovery of electromagnetic rotations (in 1821), the liquefaction of gases (in... more...

  • Integration - A Functional Approachby Klaus Bichteler

    Springer 2010; US$ 39.95

    This book covers Lebesgue integration and its generalizations from Daniell's point of view, modified by the use of seminorms. Integrating functions rather than measuring sets is posited as the main purpose of measure theory. From this point of view Lebesgue's integral can be had as a rather straightforward, even simplistic, extension of Riemann's... more...

  • Non-locality and Possible Worldby Tomasz F. Bigaj

    De Gruyter 2006; US$ 0.00

    This book uses the formal semantics of counterfactual conditionals to analyze the problem of non-locality in quantum mechanics. Counterfactual conditionals (subjunctive conditionals) enter the analysis of quantum entangled systems in that they enable us to precisely formulate the locality condition that purports to exclude the existence... more...
