#### ANNUAL REVIEWS OF COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS VI

World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 137.00The sixth volume of the series covers topics ranging from the generation of good random numbers to statistical physics, quantum mechanics, quantum computers and polymers, to protein folding and immunology simulations. It should thus be of interest not only to computational physicists but also to experts in computer science as well as theoretical biology. more...

#### Advanced Methods in the Fractional Calculus of Variations

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99This brief presents a general unifying perspective on the fractional calculus. It brings together results of several recent approaches in generalizing the least action principle and the Euler?Lagrange equations to include fractional derivatives. The dependence of Lagrangians on generalized fractional operators as well as on classical derivatives... more...

#### Advances in Numerical Simulation in Physics and Engineering

Springer 2014; US$ 109.00#### Arnold Sommerfeld: Atomphysiker und Kulturbote 1868 ? 1951

Springer New York 2013; US$ 49.99First English-language biography of Arnold Sommerfeld Written by an expert on the life of Sommerfeld, who has directed the edition of Sommerfeld's considerable correspondence with other physicists Chronicles the rise of atomic and quantum physics within the social and political context of the first half of the 20th century more...

#### The Art of Science

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 79.99Extends Leonardo's vision of painting as a science to "scientific representation" Restores a visual dimension to the mathematical sciences Highlights the shared characteristics of the space opened to painting by linear perspective and that opened to science by complex numbers more...

#### Atom Chips

Wiley 2011; US$ 155.00This stimulating discussion of a rapidly developing field is divided into two parts. The first features tutorials in textbook style providing self-contained introductions to the various areas relevant to atom chip research. Part II contains research reviews that provide an integrated account of the current state in an active area of research where... more...

#### The Beginnings of Piezoelectricity

Springer 2007; US$ 209.00Studies a particular subdiscipline representative of many similar "mundane" branches of physics that did not bear revolutionary consequences beyond their field. This work shows that this mundane science was an intriguing intellectual and practical enterprise, which involved, among other things, originality, surprises and controversies. more...

#### Bit-String Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 234.00We could be on the threshold of a scientific revolution. Quantum mechanics is based on unique, finite, and discrete events. General relativity assumes a continuous, curved space-time. Reconciling the two remains the most fundamental unsolved scientific problem left over from the last century. The papers of H Pierre Noyes collected in this volume reflect... more...

#### Bohmian Mechanics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 109.00This book provides an introduction to Bohmian mechanics and to the mathematical abstractions of quantum mechanics, which range from the self-adjointness of the Schrödinger operator to scattering theory. It is an ideal starting point for those new to the field. more...

#### Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker: Major Texts in Philosophy

Springer 2014; US$ 54.99
