#### Quantum Dynamical Semigroups and Applications

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 56.03Reinvigorated by advances and insights, in particular from the active fields of quantum information and computing, the quantum theory of irreversible processes has recently attracted growing attention. This volume introduces the very basic concepts of semigroup dynamics of open quantum systems and reviews a variety of modern applications. The present... more...

#### Thermodynamics of Natural Systems

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 84.00Comprehensive advanced textbook on thermodynamics for Earth scientists, suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate students. more...

#### Mathematical Models of Convection

De Gruyter 2012; US$ 137.40Phenomena of convection are abundant in nature as well as in industry. This volume addresses the subject of convection from the point of view of both, theory and application. While the first three chapters provide a refresher on fluid dynamics and heat transfer theory, the rest of the book describes the modern developments in theory. Thus... more...

#### Transient Heat Transfer

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 45.45Making use of the dimensionless Biot number, this volume presents a new, direct computational method for transient heat transfer. The approach allows readers to make transient heat transfer calculations without using finite difference programs. more...

#### Engineering Heat Transfer

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 190.30This book serves as a concise reference for the fast solution of practical problems in heat transmission. It analyzes heat transfer by radiation, illustrates the required behavior when examining heat transfer in heat exchangers, and discusses pressure drops. more...

#### Handbook for Heat Exchangers and Tube Banks design

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 116.29The motion of fluids is never in parallel- or counter-flow in heat exchangers and tube banks, leading to complexities in the equations for calculating their transferred heat and temperatures. This review of the topic includes 70 design and verification tables. more...

#### Tables for the Energy and Photon Distribution in Equilibrium Radiation Spectra

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95Tables for the Energy and Photon Distribution in Equilibrium Radiation Spectra covers a collection of tables used for calculating the energy and photon distribution in equilibrium radiation. The book discusses the main characteristics of radiation; the equilibrium between radiation and matter using Kirchhoff's laws; the energy and photon distribution... more...

#### Solutions to Problems of Controlling Long Waves with the Help of Micro-Structure Tools

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 26.00In recent times the idea of cloaking has become very popular. After radar and sonar were discovered, problems of "visibility" reduction for physical bodies in air (by electromagnetic waves) or in water (by acoustical waves) have immediately become serious areas of research in physics. New technologies (sensors, actuators) of high spatial-temporal... more...

#### Mass Transfer

Wiley 2007; US$ 197.00 US$ 170.73This didactic approach to the principles and modeling of mass transfer as it is needed in modern industrial processes is unique in combining a step-by-step introduction to all important fundamentals with the most recent applications. Based upon the renowned author's successful new modeling method as used for the O-18 process, the exemplary exercises... more...

#### Thermal Conductivity 18

Springer US 2012; US$ 81.40The International Thermal Conductivity Conference was started in 1961 with the initiative of Mr. Charles F. Lucks, who passed away on 8 July 1982 and to the memory of whom this volume is dedicated. These Conferences on thermal conductivity grew out of the needs of researchers in the field. The Conferences were held annu ally from 1961 to 1973 and... more...
