Most popular at the top

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Bell's Theorem and Quantum Realismby Douglas L. Hemmick; Asif M. Shakur

    Springer 2011; US$ 49.95

    Quantum theory presents a strange picture of the world, offering no real account of physical properties apart from observation. Neils Bohr felt that this reflected a core truth of nature: "There is no quantum world. There is only an abstract mathematical description." Among the most significant developments since Bohr's day has been the... more...

  • Dijet Angular Distributions in Proton-Proton Collisionsby Nele Boelaert

    Springer 2011; US$ 139.00

    This thesis is based on the first data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Its theme can be described as the classical Rutherford scattering experiment adapted to the LHC: measurement of scattering angles to search for new physics and substructure. At the LHC, colliding quarks and gluons exit the proton collisions as collimated particle showers,... more...

  • 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...
