#### Natural Philosophy

The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99Along with several collaborators, Russian-born chemist Wilhelm Ostwald is regarded as one of the key figures in developing the field now known as physical chemistry. In 1909, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work on catalysis and several other key processes. In this comprehensive volume, Ostwald lays out a complete scientific system and relates... more...

#### Grundlagen der Strahlungsphysik und des Strahlenschutzes

Springer 2012; US$ 69.95#### Handbook Of Thermoluminescence

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 236.00This book provides practical support for research, study, routine work and terminology in the field of thermoluminescence (TL). It discusses the methods of determining the kinetic parameters, the procedures for characterizing a thermoluminescent dosimetric system, and the definition of terms commonly used in the literature. more...

#### Quantum Theory of Optical Coherence

Wiley 2007; US$ 248.00A summary of the pioneering work of Glauber in the field of optical coherence phenomena and photon statistics, this book describes the fundamental ideas of modern quantum optics and photonics in a tutorial style. It is thus not only intended as a reference for researchers in the field, but also to give graduate students an insight into the basic theories... more...

#### Bright Baby Colors

St. Martin's Press 2008; US$ 5.99Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification--in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator. His first job in children's books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became... more...

#### Introduction to Radiometry

SPIE 1998; US$ 44.00Radiometry is an essential part of the optical design of virtually every optical instrument, and key to many applications. It is also used to measure the radiation of various objects. This tutorial examines both the techniques of calculating radiative transfer and the measurement of fluxes and radiometric properties of various sorts. more...

#### Radiative Transfer on Discrete Spaces

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Pure and Applied Mathematics, Volume 74: Radiative Transfer on Discrete Spaces presents the geometrical structure of natural light fields. This book describes in detail with mathematical precision the radiometric interactions of light-scattering media in terms of a few well established principles. Organized into four parts encompassing 15 chapters,... more...

#### Reconciliation of Geometry and Perception in Radiation Physics

Wiley 2014; US$ 95.00Reconciliation of Geometry and Perception in Radiation Physics approaches the topic of projective geometry as it applies to radiation physics and attempts to negate its negative reputation. With an original outlook and transversal approach, the book emphasizes common geometric properties and their potential transposition between domains. After defining... more...
