- World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 314.00
This volume is the seventh in a series of proceedings on theoretical physics related to various aspects of the structure of condensed matter and to appropriate mathematical methods for adequate description. Three main topics are considered: conformal symmetry, central charge, condensation of flux; rigged string configurations, Yang–Baxter equations... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 300.00
This book focuses on current topics in quasicrystal science and research. Various themes are addressed, such as atomic structure, growth of quasicrystals, statistical physics and thermodynamics, magnetism, phasons, propagation of waves, surfaces and technological potential of quasicrystals. Insight into basics in physics and chemistry is also given,... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 255.00
This book presents the basic physics of ferroelectric and antiferroelectric liquid crystals in a simple and transparent way. It treats both the basic and the applied aspects of ferroelectric and antiferroelectric liquid crystal research, starting from the discovery of ferroelectricity in liquid crystals in 1975 and ending with the resonant X-ray experiment... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 87.00
The world that surrounds us is a complex system of interacting objects. The versatility of the links and interactions brings about the infinite multiplicity of natural phenomena. “Synergetics” studies nonlinear nonequilibrium processes and self-organization phenomena, allowing for description, systematization and generalization of the... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 148.00
This book discusses the most important aspects of the theory. The phenomenological model is followed by the microscopic theory of superconductivity, in which modern formalism of the many-body theory is used to treat most important problems such as superconducting alloys, coexistence of superconductivity with the magnetic order, and superconductivity... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 241.00
This volume provides valuable summaries on many aspects of advanced semiconductor heterostructures and highlights the great variety of semiconductor heterostructures that has emerged since their original conception. As exemplified by the chapters in this book, recent progress on advanced semiconductor heterostructures spans a truly remarkable range... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 187.00
This invaluable book contains pedagogical articles on the dominant nonstochastic methods of microscopic many-body theories — the methods of density functional theory, coupled cluster theory, and correlated basis functions — in their widest sense. Other articles introduce students to applications of these methods in front-line research,... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 113.00
The quantum phenomena of tunneling and interference show up not only in the microscopic world of atoms and molecules, but also in cold materials of the real world, such as metals and semiconductors. Though not fully macroscopic, such mesoscopic systems contain a huge number of particles, and the holistic nature of quantum mechanics becomes evident... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 205.00
This book discusses fundamental problems in quantum physics, with emphasis on quantum coherence and decoherence. Papers covering the wide range of quantum physics are included: atom optics, quantum optics, quantum computing, quantum information, cryptography, macroscopic quantum phenomena, mesoscopic physics, physics of precise measurements, and fundamental... more...

In its simplest manifestation, the Casimir effect is a quantum force of attraction between two parallel uncharged conducting plates. More generally, it refers to the interaction — which may be either attractive or repulsive — between material bodies due to quantum fluctuations in whatever fields are relevant. It is a local version of... more...
