  • Toroidal Multipole Moments in Classical Electrodynamicsby Stefan Nanz

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2016; US$ 69.99

    Stefan Nanz investigates the necessity for threemultipole families in classical electrodynamics. He shows that by imposingsymmetry and parity constraints, it is sufficient to deal with only twomultipole families. This implies that the toroidal multipole moments do notrepresent an independent multipole family, and they only emerge in the long-wavelength... more...

  • Teilchendetektorenby Hermann Kolanoski; Norbert Wermes

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 44.99

    In diesem Buch werden die experimentellen Grundlagen von Teilchendetektoren und ihre Anwendung in Experimenten beschrieben. Die Entwicklung von Detektoren ist ein wichtiger Bestandteil der Teilchen-, Astroteilchen- und Kernphysik und gehört daher zum Handwerk des Experimentalphysikers in diesen Gebieten. Dieses umfassende Werk beinhaltet den kompletten... more...

  • The Landscape of Free Fermionic Gauge Modelsby Douglas G. Moore

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis, the author describes the development of a software framework to systematically construct a particular class of weakly coupled free fermionic heterotic string models, dubbed gauge models. In their purest form, these models are maximally supersymmetric (N = 4), and thus only contain superpartners in their matter sector. This feature makes... more...

  • Multi-scale Structure Formation and Dynamics in Cosmic Plasmasby Andre Balogh; Andrei Bykov; Jonathan Eastwood; Jelle Kaastra

    Springer New York 2016; US$ 179.00

    Thisbook offers eleven coordinated reviews on multi-scalestructure formation in cosmic plasmas in the Universe. Observations and theories of plasma structures are presentedin all relevant astrophysical contexts, from the Earth?s magnetosphere  through heliospheric and galactic scales to  clusters of galaxies and the large scalestructure... more...

  • Quantum Field Theoryby Thanu Padmanabhan

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 69.99

    This bookdescribes, in clear terms, the Why, What and the How of Quantum Field Theory.The raison d'etre of QFT is explained by starting from the dynamics of arelativistic particle and demonstrating how it leads to the notion of quantumfields. Non-perturbative aspects  and the Wilsonian interpretation offield theory are emphasized  right from... more...

  • Extreme States of Matterby Vladimir E. Fortov

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00

    With 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...

  • Plasma Sources of Solar System Magnetospheresby Andrew F. Nagy; Michel Blanc; Charles R. Chappell; Norbert Krupp

    Springer New York 2016; US$ 129.00

    This volume reviews what we know of the corresponding plasma source for each intrinsically magnetized planet. Plasma sources fall essentially in three categories: the solar wind, the ionosphere (both prevalent on Earth), and the satellite-related sources.  Throughout the text, the case of each planet is described, including the characteristics,... more...

  • Novel (Trans)dermal Drug Delivery Strategiesby Hazel Garvie-Cook

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This work represents an inventive attempt to apply recent advances in nanotechnology to identify and characterise novel polymer systems for drug delivery through the skin. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) measurements of the nanoscale mechanical properties of topical, drug-containing polymeric films enabled the author to identify optimal compositions,... more...

  • Nuclear, Particle and Many Body Physicsby Philip M. Morse; Bernard T. Feld; Herman Feshbach

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 93.95

    Nuclear, Particle and Many Body Physics, Volume II, is the second of two volumes dedicated to the memory of physicist Amos de-Shalit. The contributions in this volume are a testament to the respect he earned as a physicist and of the warm and rich affection he commanded as a personal friend. The book contains 41 chapters and begins with a study on... more...

  • Concepts of Mathematical Physics in Chemistry: A Tribute to Frank E. Harris - Part Bby John R. Sabin; Remigio Cabrera-Trujillo

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 245.00

    Concepts of Mathematical Physics in Chemistry: A Tribute to Frank E. Harris - Part B, presents a series of articles concerning important topics in quantum chemistry, including surveys of current topics in this rapidly-developing field that has emerged at the cross section of the historically established areas of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and... more...
