  • Gas Phase Metal Reactionsby A. Fontijn

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 93.95

    The book brings together, for the first time, all aspects of reactions of metallic species in the gas phase and gives an up-to-date overview of the field. Reactions covered include those of atomic, other free radical and transient neutral species, as well as ions. Experimental and theoretical work is reviewed and the efforts to establish a closer link... more...

  • Nuclear Powerby David Elliott

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2017; US$ 36.00

    This book looks at the early history of nuclear power, at what happened next, and at its longer-term prospects. The main question is: can nuclear power overcome the problems that have emerged? It was once touted as the ultimate energy source, freeing mankind from reliance on dirty, expensive fossil energy. Sixty years on, nuclear only supplies around... more...

  • The Quantum Worldby New Scientist

    Hodder & Stoughton 2017; US$ 15.99

    Forget everything you thought you knew about reality. The world is a seriously bizarre place. Things can exist in two places at once and travel backwards and forwards in time. Waves and particles are one and the same, and objects change their behaviour according to whether they are being watched. This is not some alternative universe but the... more...

  • Differential Geometry and Mathematical Physicsby Gerd Rudolph; Matthias Schmidt

    Springer Netherlands 2017; US$ 156.68

    The book is devoted to the study of the geometrical and topological structure of gauge theories. It consists of the following three building blocks: - Geometry and topology of fibre bundles, - Clifford algebras, spin structures and Dirac operators, - Gauge theory. Written in the style of a mathematical textbook, it combines a comprehensive presentation... more...

  • Modern Nuclear Chemistryby Walter D. Loveland; David J. Morrissey; Glenn T. Seaborg

    Wiley 2017; US$ 175.00 US$ 151.67

  • Progress in Opticsby Taco Visser

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 224.00

    Progress in Optics, Volume 62 , an ongoing series, contains more than 300 review articles by distinguished research workers that have become permanent records for many important developments, helping optical scientists and optical engineers stay informed in their respective fields. The many chapters that have appeared over the years in different... more...

  • Experimental Neutron Scatteringby B. T. M. Willis; C. J. Carlile

    OUP Oxford 2017; US$ 54.99

    This book provides a broad survey of the work carried out by scientists at neutron centres around the world, which provide the facilities for generating intense beams of neutrons.These beams are essential in investigating the atomic structures of a wide range of materials such as magnetic alloys, superconductors, polymers, or proteins. more...

  • Application of Infrared to Biomedical Sciencesby Eddie YK Ng; Mahnaz Etehadtavakol

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 145.48

    The book covers the latest updates in the application of infrared to biomedical sciences, a non-invasive, contactless, safe and easy approach imaging of skin and tissue temperatures. Its diagnostic procedure allows practitioners to identify the locations of abnormal chemical and blood vessel activity such as angiogenesis in body tissue.  Its... more...

  • Exotic Nuclear Excitations: The Transverse Wobbling Mode in 135 Prby James Till Matta

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 97.36

    The work presented in this thesis established the existence of wobbling at low spin and low deformation in the Z~60, N~76 nuclear region.  This opens the region to further searches for wobbling and shows that wobbling is not confined to a particular quasiparticle orbital, spin or deformation.  While deformed nuclei usually have axial... more...
