#### Bilinear Integrable Systems: from Classical to Quantum, Continuous to Discrete

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 139.00#### Piezoelectric Transducers for Vibration Control and Damping

Springer London 2006; US$ 209.00Flexible mechanical systems experience undesirable vibration in response to environmental and operational forces. The very existence of vibrations can limit the accuracy of sensitive instruments or cause significant errors in applications where high-precision positioning is essential so in many situations control of vibrations is a necessity. Piezoelectric... more...

#### Classical Geometries in Modern Contexts

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 99.00Presents the real inner product spaces of arbitrary (finite or infinite) dimension greater than or equal to 2. This book studies the sphere geometries of Mobius and Lie for these spaces, besides euclidean and hyperbolic geometry, as well as geometries where Lorentz transformations play the key role. more...

#### Darboux Transformations in Integrable Systems

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 189.00Presents the Darboux transformations in matrix form and provides algebraic algorithms for constructing the explicit solutions. This work elucidates the behavior of simple and multi-solutions, even in multi-dimensional cases. It contains many results that were obtained by the authors in the past few years. more...

#### Perturbations of Positive Semigroups with Applications

Springer London 2006; US$ 129.00Perturbations of Positive Semigroups with Applications is a self-contained introduction to semigroup theory with emphasis on positive semigroups on Banach lattices and perturbation techniques. The first part of the book, which should be regarded as an extended reference section, presents a survey of the results from functional analysis, the theory... more...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...
