  • Transport Phenomena in Porous Mediaby Yasuaki Ichikawa; A.P.S. Selvadurai

    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

    This monograph presents an integrated perspective of the wide range of phenomena and processes applicable to the study of transport of species in porous materials. In order to formulate the entire range of porous media and their uses, this book gives the basics of continuum mechanics, thermodynamics, seepage and consolidation and diffusion, including... more...

  • Exploring Macroscopic Quantum Mechanics in Optomechanical Devicesby Haixing Miao

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    Recent state-of-the-art technologies in fabricating low-loss optical and mechanical components have significantly motivated the study of quantum-limited measurements with optomechanical devices. Such research is the main subject of this thesis. In the first part, the author considers various approaches for surpassing the standard quantum limit for... more...

  • Transport Processes in Porous Mediaby Frank A. Coutelieris; J.M.P.Q. Delgado

    Springer 2012; US$ 159.00

    The subject of this book is to study the porous media and the transport processes occur there. As a first step, the authors discuss several techniques for artificial representation of porous. Afterwards, they describe the single and multi phase flows in simplistic and complex porous structures in terms of macroscopic and microscopic equations as well... more...

  • Problems in Quantum Mechanicsby Emilio d'Emilio; Luigi E. Picasso

    Springer 2012; US$ 89.95

    242 solved problems of several degrees of difficulty in nonrelativistic Quantum Mechanics, ranging from the themes of the crisis of classical physics, through the achievements in the framework of modern atomic physics, down to the still alive, more intriguing aspects connected e.g. with the EPR paradox, the Aharonov--Bohm effect, quantum teleportation. more...

  • Self-Assembly of Nanostructuresby Stefano Bellucci

    Springer 2011; US$ 139.00

    This is the third volume in a series of books on selected topics in "Nanoscale Science and Technology" based on lectures given at the well-known Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) schools of the same name. The present set of notes stems in particular from the participation and dedication of prestigious lecturers, such as Nunzio... more...

  • Physics of Nanostructured Solid State Devicesby Supriyo Bandyopadhyay

    Springer 2012; US$ 119.00

    Physics of Nanostructured Solid State Devices introduces readers to theories and concepts such as semi-classical and quantum mechanical descriptions of electron transport, methods for calculations of band structures in solids with applications in calculation of optical constants, and other advanced concepts. The information presented here will equip... more...

  • Falling Liquid Filmsby S. Kalliadasis; C. Ruyer-Quil; B. Scheid

    Springer 2011; US$ 129.00

    This research monograph gives a detailed review of the state-of-the-art theoretical methodologies for the analysis of dissipative wave dynamics and pattern formation on the surface of a film falling down a planar, inclined substrate. This prototype is an open-flow hydrodynamic instability representing an excellent paradigm for the study of complexity... more...

  • Dynamical Symmetries for Nanostructuresby Konstantin Kikoin; Mikhail Kiselev; Yshai Avishai

    Springer 2012; US$ 189.00

    Group theoretical concepts elucidate fundamental physical phenomena, including excitation spectra of quantum systems and complex geometrical structures such as molecules and crystals. These concepts are extensively covered in numerous textbooks. The aim of the present monograph is to illuminate more subtle aspects featuring group theory for quantum... more...

  • Density Matrix Theory and Applicationsby Karl Blum

    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

    Written in a clear pedagogic style, this book deals with the application of density matrix theory to atomic and molecular physics. The aim is to precisely characterize sates by a vector and to construct general formulas and proofs of general theorems. The basic concepts and quantum mechanical fundamentals (reduced density matrices, entanglement, quantum... more...

  • Interpreting Physicsby Edward MacKinnon

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    This book is the first to offer a systematic account of the role of language in the development and interpretation of physics. An historical-conceptual analysis of the co-evolution of mathematical and physical concepts leads to the classical/quatum interface. Bohrian orthodoxy stresses the indispensability of classical concepts and the functional role... more...
