  • Basic Properties of Semiconductorsby P.T. Landsberg

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 93.95

    Since Volume 1 was published in 1982, the centres of interest in the basic physics of semiconductors have shifted. Volume 1 was called Band Theory and Transport Properties in the first edition, but the subject has broadened to such an extent that Basic Properties is now a more suitable title. Seven chapters have been rewritten by the original authors.... more...

  • Trick or Truth?by Anthony Aguirre; Brendan Foster; Zeeya Merali

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 89.99

    The prize-winning essays in thisbook address the fascinating but sometimes uncomfortable relationship betweenphysics and mathematics. Ismathematics merely another natural science? Or is it the result of humancreativity? Does physics simply wear mathematics like a costume, or is math thelifeblood of physical reality? The nineteen wide-ranging, highly... more...

  • Einstieg in die Hochschulmathematikby Jürgen Wagner

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 29.99

    Dieses Buch soll Studierenden in den ersten Semestern den Übergang von der Schul- zur Hochschulmathematik erleichtern. Es eignet sich daher hervorragend zur Unterstützung und Ergänzung von Brückenkursen, die im Vorfeld des Studiums von vielen Hochschulen angeboten werden. Der Autor liefert einen umfangreichen Überblick über die Bereiche Analysis,... more...

  • The Life Story of an Infrared Telescopeby John K. Davies

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 99.00

    Written by one of the astronomers who 'lived the dream' of working there this book is a restrospectively expanded diary featuring the 'birth and long life' of what was a truely innovative telescope. Based on input received from people involved in its planning, building, operation, and many scientists who observed with it, the author tells this... more...

  • Bulk and Boundary Invariants for Complex Topological Insulatorsby Emil Prodan; Hermann Schulz-Baldes

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 89.99

    This monograph offers an overview of rigorous results on fermionic topological insulators from the complex classes, namely, those without symmetries or with just a chiral symmetry. Particular focus is on the stability of the topological invariants in the presence of strong disorder, on the interplay between the bulk and boundary invariants and on... more...

  • The Landscape of Free Fermionic Gauge Modelsby Douglas G. Moore

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis, the author describes the development of a software framework to systematically construct a particular class of weakly coupled free fermionic heterotic string models, dubbed gauge models. In their purest form, these models are maximally supersymmetric (N = 4), and thus only contain superpartners in their matter sector. This feature makes... more...

  • A Mathematician's Journeysby Alexander Jones; Christine Proust; John M. Steele

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This book explores facets of Otto Neugebauer's career, his impact on the history and practice of mathematics, and the ways in which his legacy has been preserved or transformed in recent decades, looking ahead to the directions in which the study of the history of science will head in the twenty-first century. Neugebauer, more than any other scholar... more...

  • Ideengeschichte der Physikby Wilfried Kuhn; Oliver Schwarz

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 59.99

    Die Ideengeschichte der Physik geht neue Wege, indem sie den umfangreichen historischen Stoff nicht additiv darstellt, sondern wissenschaftstheoretisch reflektiert und nach thematischen Leitlinien (Materievorstellungen, Raum und Zeit, Erhaltungskonzepte, Extremalprinzipien, Theorie und Experiment) strukturiert. Damit vermittelt diese Darstellung im... more...

  • Elements of Probability and Statisticsby Francesca Biagini; Massimo Campanino

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 69.99

    This bookprovides an introduction to elementary probability and to Bayesianstatistics using de Finetti's subjectivist approach. One of the featuresof this approach is that it does not require the introductionof sample space ? a non-intrinsic concept that makes the treatment ofelementary probability unnecessarily complicate... more...

  • Control of Self-Organizing Nonlinear Systemsby Eckehard Schöll; Sabine H. L. Klapp; Philipp Hövel

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    The book summarizes the state-of-the-art of research on control of self-organizing nonlinear systems with contributions from leading international experts in the field. The first focus concerns recent methodological developments including control of networks and of noisy and time-delayed systems. As a second focus, the book features emerging concepts... more...
