  • Quantum Scaling in Many-Body Systemsby Mucio A. Continentino

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 95.00

    This book on quantum phase transitions has been written by one of the pioneers in the application of scaling ideas to many-body systems — a new and exciting subject that has relevance to many areas of condensed matter and theoretical physics. One of the few books on the subject, it emphasizes strongly correlated electronic systems. Although... more...

  • The Casimir Effectby K. A. Milton

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 172.00

    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...

  • Selected Papers of J Robert Schriefferby J.R. Schrieffer; N.E. Bonesteel; L.P. Gorkov

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 208.00

    This invaluable book is a selection of papers by theoretical physicist and Nobel laureate J Robert Schrieffer. In addition to his Nobel Prize-winning work in superconductivity, Prof Schrieffer has made significant contributions to a wide variety of topics in condensed matter physics. These include the theory of soliton excitations in polyacetylene... more...

  • Expanding Frontier of Atomic Physics, theby H.R. Sedeghpour; E.J. Heller; D.E. Pritchard; H.R. Sadeghpour

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 367.00

    This important proceedings volume highlights the major scientific achievement of the last decade in atomic physics, namely the creation of the gaseous Bose-Einstein condensate, which was featured prominently at the XVIII International Conference on Atomic Physics (ICAP2002). Two recipients of the 2001 Nobel Prize delivered lectures at the meeting.... more...

  • Symmetry and Structural Properties of Condensed Matterby T. Lulek; B. Lulek; A. Wal

    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...

  • Artificial Black Holesby M. Novello; Matt Visser; G.E. Volovik

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 208.00

    Physicists are pondering on the possibility of simulating black holes in the laboratory by means of various “analog models”. These analog models, typically based on condensed matter physics, can be used to help us understand general relativity (Einstein's gravity); conversely, abstract techniques developed in general relativity can... more...

  • Advanced Semiconductor Heterostructuresby Mitra Dutta; Michael A. Stroscio

    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...

  • Introduction to Modern Methods of Quantum Many-Body Theory and Their Applicationsby Adelchi Fabrocini; Stefano Fantoni; Eckhard Krotscheck

    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...

  • Physical Phenomena at High Magnetic Fields - Ivby G. Boebinger; A. Lacerda; Z. Fisk; L. P. Gor'kov; J. R. Schrieffer

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 303.00

    Physical Phenomena at High Magnetic Fields IV (PPHMF-IV) was the fourth in the series of conferences sponsored by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL). The success of PPHMF-I, II and III, held in 1991, 1995 and 1998 respectively, encouraged the organizers to once again bring together experts in scientific research areas where high magnetic... more...

  • Foundations of Quantum Mechanics in the Light of New Technologyby Yoshimasa A. Ono; Kazuo Fujikawa

    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...
