#### 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...

#### Die Lebendige Masse

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 44.99Dieser Buchtitel ist Teil des Digitalisierungsprojekts Springer Book Archives mit Publikationen, die seit den Anfängen des Verlags von 1842 erschienen sind. Der Verlag stellt mit diesem Archiv Quellen für die historische wie auch die disziplingeschichtliche Forschung zur Verfügung, die jeweils im historischen Kontext betrachtet werden müssen. Dieser... 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...

#### Non-perturbative Description of Quantum Systems

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 89.99This book introduces systematically the operator method for the solution of the Schrödinger equation. This method permits to describe the states of quantum systems in the entire range of parameters of Hamiltonian with a predefined accuracy. The operator method is unique compared with other non-perturbative methods due to its ability to deliver in zeroth... more...

#### Spectra and Dynamics of Small Molecules

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 49.99These seven lectures are intended to serve as an introduction for beginning graduate students to the spectra of small molecules. The author succeeds in illustrating the concepts by using language and metaphors that capture and elegantly convey simple insights into dynamics that lie beyond archival molecular constants. The lectures can simultaneously... 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...

#### Non-diffracting Waves

Wiley 2013; US$ 196.00 US$ 169.87This continuation and extension of the successful book "Localized Waves" by the same editors brings together leading researchers in non-diffractive waves to cover the most important results in their field and as such is the first to present the current state. The well-balanced presentation of theory and experiments guides readers through the background... more...

#### Relativity In Our Time

CRC Press 1993; US$ 52.95A publication concerning the relevance of Einstein's theory of relativity to human relations in contemporary times. more...
