  • Investigation of Staged Laser-Plasma Accelerationby Satomi Shiraishi

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis establishes an exciting new beginning for Laser Plasma Accelerators (LPAs) to further develop toward the next generation of compact high energy accelerators.Design, installation and commissioning of a new experimental setup at LBNL played an important role and are detailed through three critical components: e-beam production, reflection... more...

  • Macroscopic Matter Wave Interferometryby Stefan Nimmrichter

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Matter?wave interferometry is a promising and successful way to explore truly macroscopic quantum phenomena and probe the validity of quantum theory at the borderline to the classic world. Indeed, we may soon witness quantum superpositions with nano to micrometer-sized objects. Yet, venturing deeper into the macroscopic domain is not only an experimental... more...

  • Nonequilibrium and Irreversibilityby Giovanni Gallavotti

    Springer 2014; US$ 109.00

    This book concentrates on the properties of the stationary states in chaotic systems of particles or fluids, leaving aside the theory of the way they can be reached. The stationary states of particles or of fluids (understood as probability distributions on microscopic configurations or on the fields describing continua) have received important new... more...

  • Laser Surface Modification and Adhesionby K. L. Mittal; Thomas Bahners

    Wiley 2014; US$ 195.00

    The 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...

  • Modern Plasmonicsby Alexei A. Maradudin; J. Roy Sambles; William L. Barnes

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 235.00

    Plasmonics is entering the curriculum of many universities, either as a stand alone subject, or as part of some course or courses. Nanotechnology institutes have been, and are being, established in universities, in which plasmonics is a significant topic of research. Modern Plasmonics  book offers a comprehensive presentation of the properties... more...

  • Magnetic Nanoparticlesby Adriana I. Figueroa

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Magnetic nanoparticles (NPs) are finding their place in many modern technologies such as electronics (memory or spintronic devices) and medicine (contrast media, electromagnetic thermal therapy) to name just a few examples. The application of modern techniques based on synchrotron radiation, in particular X-ray spectroscopies, as well as an rf transverse... more...

  • Inside the Cosmic Mindby Phoebe Wyss

    Floris Books 2014; US$ 14.57

    Phoebe Wyss, an experienced astrologer, here examines all aspects of astrology in the light of the emerging worldview known as archetypal cosmology.<br><br>She sets out by exploring the classical roots of astrology in sources of wisdom found in the ancient Egyptian mysteries. She then follows the tradition to modern times through C.G.... more...

  • Fundamentals of Gas Dynamicsby Vikash Babu

    Wiley 2014; US$ 105.95

    Fundamentals of Gas Dynamics, Second Edition isa comprehensively updated new edition and now includes a chapter on the gas dynamics of steam. It covers the fundamental concepts and governing equations of different flows, and includes end of chapter exercises based on the practical applications. A number of useful tables on the thermodynamic properties... more...

  • Recent Developments in Cavitation Mechanismsby Seiichi Washio

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 200.00

    How does cavitation start? Presently, the nucleus theory provides the answer to this fundamental question. However the idea of nuclei contains inaccuracies that cannot be rationalized. Recent Developments in Cavitation Mechanisms discusses the uncertainties surrounding the nucleus theory, and proposes another theory of cavitation mechanism. Characteristically,... more...

  • At the Root of Thingsby Palash Baran Pal

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95

    At the Root of Things: The Subatomic World is a journey into the world of elementary particles?the basic constituents of all matter in the universe?and the nature of the interactions among them. The book begins with a summary of pre-quantum physics and later tackles quantum physics, which is essential for the study of elementary particles. The... more...
