#### Particle Adhesion and Removal

Wiley 2015; US$ 195.00The book provides a comprehensive and easily accessible reference source covering all important aspects of particle adhesion and removal. The core objective is to cover both fundamental and applied aspects of particle adhesion and removal with emphasis on recent developments. Among the topics to be covered include: 1. Fundamentals of surface forces... more...

#### Introduction to General Relativity, Black Holes and Cosmology

Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 43.99General Relativity is a beautiful geometric theory, simple in its mathematical formulation but leading to numerous consequences with striking physical interpretations: gravitational waves, black holes, cosmological models, and so on. This introductory textbook is written for mathematics students interested in physics and physics students interested... more...

#### Measurement of the Inclusive Electron Cross-Section from Heavy-Flavour Decays and Search for Compressed Supersymmetric Scenarios with the ATLAS Experiment

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00The first part of this thesis presents the measurement of the inclusive cross-section for electron production from heavy-flavour decays in the electron transverse momentum range 7 GeV< pT< 26 GeV using 1.3 pb?1 of 7 TeV proton-proton collision data collected by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider in 2010. The measured value of the... more...

#### Nanoparticle Assemblies and Superstructures

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 200.00Cubes, triangular prisms, nano-acorn, nano-centipedes, nanoshells, nano-whiskers. . . . Now that we can create nanoparticles in a wide variety of shapes and morphologies, comes the next challenge: finding ways to organize this collection of particles into larger and more complex systems. Nanoparticle Assemblies and Superstructures , edited... more...

#### Festkörperphysik

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 1,540.00Das über mehrere Jahre ausgefeilte und weithin anerkannte Lehrbuch führt in alle aktuelle Festkörperphysikthemen ein und vermittelt darüber hinaus das Verständnis für weiterführende Spezialgebiete. Es gelingt den Autoren nicht nur, die moderne Festkörperphysik in all ihrer Breite leicht verständlich und strukturiert zu behandeln, sondern... more...

#### Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativity

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativity provides readers with a coherent path to understanding relativity. Requiring little more than calculus and some linear algebra, it helps readers learn just enough differential geometry to grasp the basics of general relativity. The book contains two intertwined but distinct halves. ... more...

#### Gravitation und Relativität

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 630.00The theory of relativity is among the most familiar theories in all of physics. Although its direct implications for our daily lives are practically negligible, it has continued to generate great fascination. This book offers readers with an interest in physics and basic knowledge of higher mathematics a lucid and understandable pathway... more...

#### Investigation of Staged Laser-Plasma Acceleration

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00This thesis establishes an exciting new beginning for Laser Plasma Accelerators (LPAs) to further develop toward the next generation of compact high energy accelerators.Design, installation and commissioning of a new experimental setup at LBNL played an important role and are detailed through three critical components: e-beam production, reflection... more...

#### Nonequilibrium and Irreversibility

Springer 2014; US$ 109.00This book concentrates on the properties of the stationary states in chaotic systems of particles or fluids, leaving aside the theory of the way they can be reached. The stationary states of particles or of fluids (understood as probability distributions on microscopic configurations or on the fields describing continua) have received important new... more...

#### Macroscopic Matter Wave Interferometry

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00Matter?wave interferometry is a promising and successful way to explore truly macroscopic quantum phenomena and probe the validity of quantum theory at the borderline to the classic world. Indeed, we may soon witness quantum superpositions with nano to micrometer-sized objects. Yet, venturing deeper into the macroscopic domain is not only an experimental... more...
