#### Understanding Relativity

University of California Press 1996; US$ 36.95Nonspecialists 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...

#### Introduction to Soliton Theory: Applications to Mechanics

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 180.45This 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...

#### 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...

#### The One-Dimensional Hubbard Model

Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 72.00An advanced level reference text on important topics in condensed matter physics, statistical and theoretical physics. more...

#### N-body Problems And Models

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 91.00 US$ 82.81The 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 Electrons

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 91.00 US$ 82.81This 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 Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 79.00 US$ 71.89Special 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...
