  • Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativityby Tevian Dray

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95

    Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativity provides readers with a coherent path to understanding relativity. Requiring little more than calculus and some linear algebra, it helps readers learn just enough differential geometry to grasp the basics of general relativity. The book contains two intertwined but distinct halves. ... more...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Quantum Foundations and Open Quantum Systemsby Theo M. Nieuwenhuizen; Claudia Pombo; Claudio Furtado; Andrei Yu Khrennikov; Inácio A. Pedrosa; Václav ?picka

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 124.00

    The Advanced School on Quantum Foundations and Open Quantum Systems was an exceptional combination of lectures. These comprise lectures in standard physics and investigations on the foundations of quantum physics. On the one hand it included lectures on quantum information, quantum open systems, quantum transport and quantum solid state. On the other... more...

  • Asymptotic Perturbation Theory of Wavesby Lev Ostrovsky

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 124.00

    This book is an introduction to the perturbation theory for linear and nonlinear waves in dispersive and dissipative media. The main focus is on the direct asymptotic method which is based on the asymptotic expansion of the solution in series of one or more small parameters and demanding finiteness of the perturbations; this results in slow variation... 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...

  • Quantum Gas Experimentsby Päivi Törmä; Klaus Sengstock

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 148.00

    Quantum phenomena of many-particle systems are fascinating in their complexity and are consequently not fully understood and largely untapped in terms of practical applications. Ultracold gases provide a unique platform to build up model systems of quantum many-body physics with highly controlled microscopic constituents. In this way, many-body quantum... 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...
