#### Fundamentals of Power Semiconductor Devices

Springer US 2010; US$ 209.00Fundamentals of Power Semiconductor Devices provides an in-depth treatment of the physics of operation of power semiconductor devices that are commonly used by the power electronics industry. Analytical models for explaining the operation of all power semiconductor devices are shown. The treatment here focuses on silicon devices but includes the unique... more...

#### Computational Methods in Plasma Physics

CRC Press 2010; US$ 94.95This book provides a comprehensive and self-contained introduction to the computational methods used in plasma physics. The author successfully familiarizes readers with the basic concepts of numerical methods for partial differential equations and conjoins these methods with the magnetohydrodynamic equations that are used in plasma physics. ? The... more...

#### Solid-Fluid Mixtures of Frictional Materials in Geophysical and Geotechnical Context

Springer 2009; US$ 209.00This book puts the theory for a mixture of hypoplastic constituents on a rigorous basis using the thermodynamic analysis of Muller and Liu. The results which are specialised to frictional solid-fluid mixtures can be used by geophysicists and geotechnical engineers to refine their existing models for debris flows. This book addresses a continuum mechanical... more...

#### Introduction to Complex Plasmas

Springer 2010; US$ 219.00Complex plasmas differ from traditional plasmas in many ways: these are low-temperature high pressure systems containing nanometer to micrometer size particles which may be highly charged and strongly interacting. The particles may be chemically reacting or be in contact with solid surfaces, and the electrons may show quantum behaviour. These interesting... more...

#### Nonlinear Magnetohydrodynamics

Cambridge University Press 1993; US$ 76.00A self-contained introduction to magnetohydrodynamics with emphasis on nonlinear processes. more...

#### Nonlinear Physics of Plasmas

Springer 2010; US$ 239.00A nonlinearity is one of the most important notions in modern physics. A plasma is rich in nonlinearities and provides a variety of behaviors inherent to instabilities, coherent wave structures and turbulence. The book covers the basic concepts and mathematical methods, necessary to comprehend nonlinear problems widely encountered in contemporary plasmas,... more...

#### Rare-Earth Implanted MOS Devices for Silicon Photonics

Springer 2010; US$ 179.00This book concentrates on the microstructural, electric and optoelectronic properties of rare-earth implanted MOS structures and their use as light emitters in potential applications. It describes the structural formation processes in the gate oxide during fabrication and under operation, how this microstructure development will affect the electrical... more...

#### Advanced Power MOSFET Concepts

Springer US 2010; US$ 269.00Discusses devices that can have a significant impact on improving the efficiency of the Voltage-Regulator-Modules used to deliver power to Microprocessors and Graphics Chips in Laptops and Servers Covers applications in all lower voltage circuits, especially the automotive electronics area Includes numerical simulation examples to explain the operating... more...

#### Extreme States of Matter

Springer 2010; US$ 99.00With its many beautiful colour pictures, this book gives fascinating insights into the unusual forms and behaviour of matter under extremely high pressures and temperatures. These extreme states are generated, among other things, by strong shock, detonation and electric explosion waves, dense laser beams, electron and ion beams, hypersonic entry of... more...

#### Discovery of Single Top Quark Production

Springer 2011; US$ 129.00The top quark is by far the heaviest known fundamental particle with a mass nearing that of a gold atom. Because of this strikingly high mass, the top quark has several unique properties and might play an important role in electroweak symmetry breaking - the mechanism that gives all elementary particles mass. Creating top quarks requires access to... more...
