#### Recent Developments in Theoretical Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 102.00This volume covers recent developments in the major areas of theoretical physics. The scope of the book ranges from small length scale (High Energy Physics, Neutrinos …) through medium scale (Nuclear Physics) to large length scale (Condensed Matter Physics) up to classical and quantum Black Hole Physics. It also deals with topics in nonlinear... more...

#### Fluid Preservation

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2014; US$ 109.99Despite the fact that fluid preservation has been practiced for more than 350 years, this is the only handbook that summarizes all that is known about this complex and often confusing topic. Fluid Preservation: A Comprehensive Reference covers the history and techniques of fluid preservation and how to care for fluid preserved specimens in collections.... more...

#### Laser Surface Modification and Adhesion

Wiley 2014; US$ 200.95 US$ 174.16The book provides a unique overview on laser techniques and applications for the purpose of improving adhesion by altering surface chemistry and topography/morphology of the substrate. It details laser surface modification techniques for a wide range of industrially relevant materials (plastics, metals, ceramics, composites) with the aim to improve... more...

#### Gravity

Gerald Duckworth & Co 2012; US$ 8.74Physicists will tell you that four forces control the universe. Of these, gravity may the most obvious, but it is also the most mysterious. Newton managed to predict the force of gravity but couldn't explain how it worked at a distance. Then Einstein picked up on the simple premise that gravity and acceleration are interchangeable to devise his mind-bending... more...

#### Introduction to the Physics of Matter

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 59.99This book offers an up-to-date, compact presentation of basic topics in the physics of matter, from atoms to molecules to solids, including elements of statistical mechanics. The adiabatic separation of the motion of electrons and nuclei in matter and its spectroscopic implications are outlined for molecules and recalled regularly in the study of the... more...

#### Bryce DeWitt's Lectures on Gravitation

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 89.95Written with clarity and authority, and edited by DeWitt?s former student Steven Christensen, these timeless lecture notes, containing material not found elsewhere, are a gem to be discovered or re-discovered by anyone interested in gravitational physics. more...

#### Fundamentals of Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 119.00This book offers systematic coverage of recent developments in time-dependent density functional theory, including basic concepts, and contemporary applications from real-time coupled-electron-ion dynamics, to excited-state dynamics and molecular transport. more...

#### N=2 Supersymmetric Dynamics for Pedestrians

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 59.99Understanding the dynamics of gauge theories is crucial, given the fact that all known interactions are based on the principle of local gauge symmetry. Beyond the perturbative regime, however, this is a notoriously difficult problem. Requiring invariance under supersymmetry turns out to be a suitable tool for analyzing supersymmetric gauge theories... more...
