#### Quantum Theory Of Tunneling

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 83.00 US$ 75.53This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the theoretical foundations of quantum tunneling, stressing the basic physics underlying the applications. The topics addressed include exponential and nonexponential decay processes and the application of scattering theory to tunneling problems. more...

#### Simple Views On Condensed Matter

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 38.00 US$ 34.58This volume is a selection of invaluable papers by P-G de Gennes 1991 Nobel Prize winner in Physics which have had a long-lasting impact on our understanding of condensed matter. Important ideas on polymers, liquid crystals and interfaces are described. more...

#### Topics In The Theory Of Schrodinger Operators

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 102.00 US$ 92.82This 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...

#### Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots

Wiley 2005; US$ 80.00 US$ 69.33Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots Second Edition: Theoretical and Computational Physics of Semiconductor Nanostructures provides all the essential information, both theoretical and computational, for complete beginners to develop an understanding of how the electronic, optical and transport properties of quantum wells, wires and dots are calculated.... more...

#### The Classical And Quantum Dynamics Of The Multispherical Nanostructures

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 140.00 US$ 127.40In this book, the issues regarding the theory of optics and quantum optics of spherical multilayered systems are studied. In such systems the spatial scale of layers becomes comparable with the wavelength of radiation, which complicates the analysis of important quantities such as reflectivity and transmission. more...

#### The Electromagnetic Origin Of Quantum Theory And Light (2nd Edition)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 131.00 US$ 119.21Bell anchored the logic chain begun by Einstein, Rosen, and Podolsky and tested by Aspect et al. , showing that entangled electrons are nonlocal. Feynman showed that free electrons are nonlocal in that they travel between any two points using all possible paths. more...

#### Introduction to Mesoscopic Physics

Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 224.99"Mesoscopic physics" refers to the physics of structures larger than a nanometer (one billionth of a meter) but smaller than a micrometer (one millionth of a meter). This size range is the stage on which the exciting new research on submicroscopic and electronic and mechanical devices is being done. This research often crosses the boundary between... more...

#### General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 84.00An advanced textbook providing a clear mathematical introduction to general relativity and its physical applications. more...

#### Feynman's Thesis - A New Approach To Quantum Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 15.00 US$ 13.65Richard Feynman?s never previously published doctoral thesis formed the heart of much of his brilliant and profound work in theoretical physics. Entitled ?The Principle of Least Action in Quantum Mechanics,? its original motive was to quantize the classical action-at-a-distance electrodynamics. Because that theory adopted an overall space?time viewpoint,... more...

#### First-principles Calculations In Real-space Formalism

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 116.00 US$ 105.56With cutting-edge materials and minute electronic devices being produced by the latest nanoscale fabrication technology, it is essential for scientists and engineers to rely on first-principles (ab initio) calculation methods to fully understand the electronic configurations and transport properties of nanostructures. It is now imperative to introduce... more...
