#### 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...

#### 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...

#### Joy Of The Search For Knowledge, The

World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 10.00This invaluable collection of essays pays tribute to Dan Tsui, 1998 Nobel laureate in Physics. It paints a portrait of his outstanding personal attributes through the eyes of his friends and relatives. In addition, it provides a record of the environment which accompanied him in his search for knowledge. This book, capturing Dan Tsui's experience and... more...

#### Nanoscience

World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 58.00Friction force microscopy is an important analytical tool in the field of tribology on the nanometer-scale. The contact area between the probing tip and the sample is reduced to some square nanometers, corresponding to the ideal of a single asperity contact. Traditional concepts, such as friction coefficients, adhesion and elasticity and stick-slip... more...

#### Quantum Theory of Solids

CRC Press 2014; US$ 65.95Quantum Theory of Solids presents a concisely-structured tour of the theory relating to chemical bonding and its application to the three most significant topics in solid state physics: semiconductors, magnetism, and superconductivity--topics that have seen major advances in recent years. This is a unique treatment that develops the concepts of quantum... more...

#### V.A. Fock - Selected Works

CRC Press 2004; US$ 172.95In the period between the birth of quantum mechanics and the late 1950s, V.A. Fock wrote papers that are now deemed classics. In his works on theoretical physics, Fock not only skillfully applied advanced analytical and algebraic methods, but also systematically created new mathematical tools when existing approaches proved insufficient. This collection... more...

#### Zeldovich

CRC Press 2004; US$ 159.95Ya. B. Zeldovich was certainly one of the greatest physicists and cosmologists of the 20th century. This volume presents reminiscences of this exemplary academician, providing biographical and historical insights from colleagues who knew him best. Zeldovich's achievements are outlined, including those in relativistic astrophysics and cosmology, the... more...

#### Advances in Nuclear Physics

Springer US 2006; US$ 319.00For the first half of the 20th Century, low-energy nuclear physics was one of the dominant foci of all of science. Then accelerators prospered and energies rose, leading to an increase of interest in the GeV regime and beyond. The three articles comprising this end-of-century Advances in Nuclear Physics present a fitting and masterful summary... more...
