#### 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...

#### Conversations with a Witch

Robert Hale 2014; US$ 7.99What is it like to be a witch? To be able to work magic, to heal, to see into the future; to be constantly approached by those in desperate need of help? Lois Bourne, psychic from childhood and a practising witch and occultist for over thirty years, has written a book of very personal reflections. She deals frankly with her own remarkable powers and... 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...

#### Einstein's Dice and Schrödinger's Cat

Basic Books 2015; US$ 27.99When the fuzzy indeterminacy of quantum mechanics overthrew the orderly world of Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Erwin Schrödinger were at the forefront of the revolution. Neither man was ever satisfied with the standard interpretation of quantum mechanics, however, and both rebelled against what they considered the most preposterous aspect of quantum... more...

#### Gravity

Gerald Duckworth & Co 2012; US$ 11.99Physicists 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$ 42.28This 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$ 63.43Written 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$ 84.57This 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$ 42.28Understanding 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...
