#### Plasma Physics and Controlled Nuclear Fusion

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 269.00The primary objectives of this book are, firstly, to present the essential theoretical background needed to understand recent fusion research and, secondly, to describe the current status of fusion research for graduate students and senior undergraduates. It will also serve as a useful reference for scientists and engineers working in the related fields.... more...

#### Quantum Statistics of Nonideal Plasmas

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 339.00During the last decade impressive development and signi?cant advance of the physics of nonideal plasmas in astrophysics and in laboratories can be observed, creating new possibilities for experimental research. The enormous progress in laser technology, but also ion beam techniques, has opened new ways for the production and diagnosis of plasmas under... more...

#### Thermal Plasma Torches

Cambridge International Science Publishing 2007; US$ 200.00The results of experimental research of plasma torches are described. A simple classification of linear plasma torches is proposed. Engineering methods of processing experimental data are outlined together with the electrical and thermal characteristics of plasma torches of different design in criterial form. Special attention is paid to the problems... more...

#### Elementary Physics of Complex Plasmas

Springer 2006; US$ 129.00Complex plasmas are dusty plasmas in which the density and electric charges of the dust grains are sufficiently high to induce long-range grain-grain interactions. This book addresses students as well as specialist and nonspecialist researchers with a background in either plasma physics, space sciences or the physics of complex systems. more...

#### Polarization Effects in Semiconductors

Springer US 2007; US$ 179.00Polarization Effects in Semiconductors: From Ab Initio Theory to Device Applications presents the latest understanding of the solid state physics, electronic implications and practical applications of the unique spontaneous or pyro-electric polarization charge of wurtzite compound semiconductors, and associated piezo-electric effects in strained... more...

#### Quantum Plasmadynamics

Springer 2007; US$ 89.95The field of quantum plasmas has a long and diverse tradition and is becoming of increasing current interest, motivated by applications to micro-electronics and to focused high-power lasers. In this book, plasma kinetic theory is developed a covariant (4-tensor) notation, which facilitates generalizations to include all relativistic and electromagnetic... more...

#### Hydromagnetic Waves in the Magnetosphere and the Ionosphere

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 269.00Here is a fascinating text that integrates topics pertaining to all scales of the MHD-waves, emphasizing the linkages between the ULF-waves below the ionosphere on the ground and magnetospheric MHD-waves. It will be most helpful to graduate and post-graduate students, familiar with advanced calculus, who study the science of MHD-waves in the magnetosphere... more...

#### Plasma Polarization Spectroscopy

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 259.00Plasma Polarization Spectroscopy (PPS) is now becoming a standard diagnostic technique for working with laboratory plasmas. This new area needs a comprehensive framework, both experimental and theoretical. This book reviews the historical development of PPS, develops a general theoretical formulation to deal with this phenomenon, along with an overview... more...

#### Energy

Infobase Publishing 2007; US$ 30.00Energy is the central concept of physics. Unable to be created or destroyed but transformable from one form to another, energy ultimately determines what is and isn't possible in our universe. This book gives readers an appreciation for the limits of energy and the quantities of energy in the world around them. This fascinating book explores the... more...

#### Molecular Processes in Plasmas

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 209.00A variety of plasmas include molecules rather than only ions or atoms. Examples are ionospheres of the Earth and other planets, stellar atmospheres, gaseous discharges for use in various devices and processes, and fusion plasmas in the edge region. This book describes the role of molecules in those plasmas by showing elementary collision processes... more...
