    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 94.00 US$ 81.78

    This unique volume gives an accurate and very detailed description of the functioning and operation of basic nuclear reactors, as emerging from yet unpublished papers by Nobel Laureate Enrico Fermi. In the first part, the entire course of lectures on Neutron Physics delivered by Fermi at Los Alamos is reported, according to the version made by Anthony... more...

  • Optical Processes in Microparticles and Nanostructuresby Ali Serpenguzel; Andrew W. Poon

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 118.00 US$ 102.66

    This Festschrift is a tribute to the eminent scholar, Professor Richard Kounai Chang, on his retirement from Yale University on June 12, 2008. During his over four decades of scientific exploration, Professor Chang has made a lasting contribution to the development of linear and nonlinear optics and devices in confined geometries, of surface second-harmonic... more...

  • Understanding Soft Condensed Matter Via Modeling and Computationby Wenbing Hu; An-Chang Shi

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 100.00 US$ 87.00

    All living organisms consist of soft matter. For this reason alone, it is important to be able to understand and predict the structural and dynamical properties of soft materials such as polymers, surfactants, colloids, granular matter and liquids crystals. To achieve a better understanding of soft matter, three different approaches have to be integrated:... more...
