#### Number Fields and Function Fields ? Two Parallel Worlds

Birkhäuser Boston 2006; US$ 104.00Ever since the analogy between number fields and function fields was discovered, it has been a source of inspiration for new ideas, and a long history has not in any way detracted from the appeal of the subject. As a deeper understanding of this analogy could have tremendous consequences, the search for a unified approach has become a sort of... more...

#### Interactions

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 219.00The main theme of this anthology is the unique interaction between mathematics, physics and philosophy during the beginning of the 20th century. In this book, ten renowned philosopher-historians probe insightfully into key conceptual questions of pre-quantum mathematical physics. The result is a diverse yet thematically focused compilation of first... more...

#### Quantum Gravity

Birkhäuser Basel 2007; US$ 129.00This Edited Volume is based on a workshop on ?Mathematical and Physical - pects of Quantum Gravity? held at the Heinrich-Fabri Institute in Blaubeuren st (Germany) from July 28th to August 1 , 2005. This workshop was the succ- sor of a similar workshop held at the same place in September 2003 on the issue of ?Mathematical and Physical Aspects of Quantum... more...

#### Physics of Ferroelectrics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 259.00During the past two decades, revolutionary breakthroughs have occurred in the understanding of ferroelectric materials, both from the perspective of theory and experiment. First principles approaches, including the Berry phase formulation of ferroelectricity, now allow accurate, quantitative predictions of material properties, and single crystalline... more...

#### Impulse Breakdown of Liquids

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 319.00The book describes the main physical processes and phenomena in pulsed electric breakdown. The knowledge and the control of the electric breakdown of liquids is important not only for the insulation inside power systems but it is also used for the creation and information of high voltage and high current pulses. Such high-voltage micro- and nanosecond... more...

#### Zeta Functions, Topology and Quantum Physics

Springer US 2008; US$ 209.00This volume contains papers by invited speakers of the symposium "Zeta Functions, Topology and Quantum Physics" held at Kinki U- versity in Osaka, Japan, during the period of March 3-6, 2003. The aims of this symposium were to establish mutual understanding and to exchange ideas among researchers working in various fields which have relation to zeta... more...

#### Spectral Theory in Inner Product Spaces and Applications

Birkhäuser Basel 2009; US$ 189.00Contains a collection of research papers originating from the 6th Workshop on Operator Theory in Krein Spaces and Operator Polynomials, which was held at the TU Berlin, Germany, December 14 to 17. This work discusses topics such as linear relations, singular perturbations, de Branges spaces, nonnegative matrices, and abstract kinetic equations. more...

#### Homogenization of Partial Differential Equations

Birkhäuser Boston 2008; US$ 209.00Homogenization is a method for modeling processes in microinhomogeneous media, which are encountered in radiophysics, filtration theory, rheology, elasticity theory, and other domains of mechanics, physics, and technology. These processes are described by PDEs with rapidly oscillating coefficients or boundary value problems in domains with complex... more...

#### Piezoelectricity

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 279.00Piezoelectric materials can be tailored for many technological applications, but such tailoring requires a basic understanding of the physical principles and technological possibilities of the materials. This book covers those basics. more...

#### Ferroelectric Crystals for Photonic Applications

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 279.00The idea to write a new book in the ?eld of ferroelectric crystals arose from some considerationsreportedinthefollowing. Inthelast5years,severalgroupsallaround the world in the ?eld of engineering and characterization of ferroelectric crystals have published more than 300 papers. The motivation for such an intense research activity is referable to... more...
