  • Understanding Relativityby Leo Sartori

    University of California Press 1996; US$ 36.95 US$ 29.56

    Nonspecialists with no prior knowledge of physics and only reasonable proficiency with algebra can now understand Einstein's special theory of relativity. Effectively diagrammed and with an emphasis on logical structure, Leo Sartori's rigorous but simple presentation will guide interested readers through concepts of relative time and relative space.... more...

  • Advances in Nuclear Physicsby J.W. Negele; Erich Vogt

    Springer US 2006; US$ 153.89

    This volume presents five pedagogical articles spanning frontier developments in contemporary nuclear physics ranging from the physics of a single nucleon to nucleosynthesis in the Big Bang. Although the objectives of Advances in Nuclear Physics have been and will continue to be quite distinct from those of conventional conference proceedings, the... more...

  • Advances in Nuclear Physicsby J.W. Negele; Erich Vogt

    Springer US 2006; US$ 142.89

    The three articles of the present volume pertain to very different subjects, all ofconsiderable current interest. The first reviews the fascinating history ofthe search for nucleon substructure in the nucleus using the strength ofGamow? Teller excitations. The second deals with deep inelastic lepton scattering as a probe ofthe non-perturbative structure... more...

  • Introduction to Soliton Theory: Applications to Mechanicsby Ligia Munteanu; Stefania Donescu

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 186.86

    This monograph is planned to provide the application of the soliton theory to solve certain practical problems selected from the fields of solid mechanics, fluid mechanics and biomechanics. The work is based mainly on the authors? research carried out at their home institutes, and on some specified, significant results existing in the published literature.... more...

  • The One-Dimensional Hubbard Modelby Fabian H. L. Essler; Holger Frahm; Frank Göhmann; Andreas Klümper; Vladimir E. Korepin

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 72.00 US$ 59.04

    An advanced level reference text on important topics in condensed matter physics, statistical and theoretical physics. more...

  • V.A. Fock - Selected Worksby L.D. Faddeev; L.A. Khalfin; I.V. Komarov

    CRC Press 2004; US$ 172.95

    In the period between the birth of quantum mechanics and the late 1950s, V.A. Fock wrote papers that are now deemed classics. In his works on theoretical physics, Fock not only skillfully applied advanced analytical and algebraic methods, but also systematically created new mathematical tools when existing approaches proved insufficient. This collection... more...

  • Topics In The Theory Of Schrodinger Operatorsby Huzihiro Araki; Hiroshi Ezawa

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 102.00

    This invaluable book presents reviews of some recent topics in the theory of Schrödinger operators. It includes a short introduction to the subject, a survey of the theory of the Schrödinger equation when the potential depends on the time periodically, an introduction to the so-called FBI transformation (also known as coherent state expansion) with... more...

  • N-body Problems And Modelsby Donald Greenspan

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 91.00

    The study and application of N -body problems has had an important role in the history of mathematics. In recent years, the availability of modern computer technology has added to their significance, since computers can now be used to model material bodies as atomic and molecular configurations, i.e. as N -body configurations. more...

  • Hubbard Operators In The Theory Of Strongly Correlated Electronsby S. G. Ovchinnikov; V. V. Val'kov

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 91.00

    This book provides the first systematic discourse on a very peculiar approach to the theory of strongly correlated systems. Hubbard X-operators have been known for a long time but have not been widely used because of their awkward algebra. The book shows that it is possible to deal with X-operators even in the general multilevel local eigenstate system,... more...

  • Energy And Geometryby Fabio Cardone; Roberto Mignani

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 79.00

    Special Relativity (SR) is essentially grounded on the properties of space-time, i.e. isotropy of space and homogeneity of space and time (as a consequence of the equivalence of inertial frames) and on the Galilei principle of relativity. more...
