  • Physics And Applications Of Complex Plasmasby S. V. Vladimirov; K Ostrikov; A A Samarian

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 234.00

    At the frontiers of physics and chemistry lies the new and rapidly emerging area of complex plasma systems. The study of complex plasma systems that contain colloid nano/microscopic particles is now actively pursued in a diverse range of scientific fields ? from plasma and gas discharge physics, to astrophysics, materials science and engineering. This... more...

  • Quantum Statistics of Nonideal Plasmasby Dietrich Kremp; T. Bornath; Manfred Schlanges; Wolf-Dietrich Kraeft

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 339.00

    During 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...

  • Charged Particle Trapsby F. G. Major; Viorica N. Gheorghe; GŁnther Werth

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 269.00

    Over the last quarter of this century, revolutionary advances have been made both in kind and in precision in the application of particle traps to the study of thephysics of charged particles, leading to intensi?ed interest in, and wide proliferation of, this topic. This book is intended as a timely addition to the literature, providing a systematic... more...

  • Thermal Plasma Torchesby M.F. Zhukov; I.M. Zasypkin

    Cambridge International Science Publishing 2007; US$ 200.00

    The 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...

  • Polarization Effects in Semiconductorsby Colin Wood; Debdeep Jena

    Springer US 2007; US$ 209.00

    Polarization 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...

  • Hydromagnetic Waves in the Magnetosphere and the Ionosphereby Leonid S. Alperovich; Evgeny N. Fedorov

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 269.00

    Here 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 Spectroscopyby Takashi Fujimoto; Atsushi Iwamae

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 269.00

    Plasma 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...

  • Quantum Plasmadynamicsby Donald Melrose

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 139.00

    The idea of synthesizing quantum electrodynamics (QED) and the kinetic theory of plasmas ?rst occurred to me in the early 1970s [1, 2]. The project to do so has been carried out bit by bit over the subsequent years. The name ?quantum plasmadynamics? (QPD) is my own jargon [3] for the synthesized theory. Both QED and the kinetic theory of plasmas areconcerned... more...
