#### Quantum Dynamical Semigroups and Applications

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 59.95Reinvigorated 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 2005; 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$ 154.00Phenomena 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 2011; US$ 49.95This book presents a new and direct computational method for transient heat transfer. The approach uses the well-known dimensionless Biot number and a second dimensionless number introduced by the author. The methodology allows for a transient heat transfer calculations without using finite difference programs. The book presents many examples and various... more...

#### Engineering Heat Transfer

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 209.00This 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$ 159.00The 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$ 191.00Mass transfer phenomena can now be observed in many fields of industry. In particular, separation processes, which make up the vast majority of industrial production procedures, are governed by the physics of mass transfer, and their design and optimization depends heavily on knowledge in this field. This didactic approach to the principles and modeling... more...
