  • 50 Years of Anderson Localizationby Elihu Abrahams

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 30.00

    In his groundbreaking paper Absence of diffusion in certain random lattices (1958), Philip W. Anderson originated, described and developed the physical principles underlying the phenomenon of the localization of quantum objects due to disorder. Anderson's 1977 Nobel Prize citation featured that paper, which was fundamental for many subsequent developments... more...

  • Emission Detectorsby Alexander I. Bolozdynya

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 76.00

    After decades of research and development, emission detectors have recently become the most successful instrumentation used in modern fundamental experiments searching for cold dark matter, and are also considered for neutrino coherent scattering and magnetic momentum neutrino measurement. This book is the first monograph exclusively dedicated to emission... more...

  • Murray Gell-Mann - Selected Papersby Harald Fritzsch

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 38.00

    Murray Gell-Mann is one of the leading physicists of the world. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1969 for his work on the classification and symmetries of elementary particles, including the approximate SU(3) symmetry of hadrons. His list of publications is impressive; a number of his papers have become landmarks in physics. In 1953, Gell-Mann... more...
