Solid State Physics

  • Mathematical Theory of Elasticity of Quasicrystals and Its Applicationsby Tian-You Fan

    Springer Singapore 2016; US$ 190.93

    This interdisciplinary work on condensed matter physics, the continuum mechanics of novel materials, and partial differential equations, discusses the mathematical theory of elasticity and hydrodynamics of quasicrystals, as well as its applications. By establishing new partial differential equations of higher order and their solutions under complicated... more...

  • Matièreby Encyclopædia Universalis

    Primento Digital Publishing 2016; US$ 4.99

    Pour l'action comme pour la connaissance, la « matière » est toujours première. Première dans ses mixtes et ses confusions, lorsqu'elle résiste aux projets de façonnage ; première dans sa présence originelle, dès qu'apparut le projet d'une construction intelligible du monde. Mais, avant même que... more...

  • Intermediate-Temperature Solid Oxide Fuel Cellsby Zongping Shao; Moses O. Tade

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 112.31

    This book discusses recent advances in intermediate-temperature solid oxide fuel cells (IT-SOFCs), focusing on material development and design, mechanism study, reaction kinetics and practical applications. It consists of five chapters presenting different types of reactions and materials employed in electrolytes, cathodes, anodes, interconnects and... more...

  • The Physics of Solidsby J. B. Ketterson

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 88.99 US$ 76.53

    This book offers a broad coverage of the physical properties of solids at fundamental level. The quantum-mechanical origins that lead to a wide range of observed properties are discussed. The book also includes a modern treatment of unusual physical states. more...

  • Defect Evolution in Cosmology and Condensed Matterby Carlos Martins

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 48.29

    This book sheds new light on topological defects in widely differing systems, using the Velocity-Dependent One-Scale Model to better understand their evolution. Topological defects ? cosmic strings, monopoles, domain walls or others - necessarily form at cosmological (and condensed matter) phase transitions. If they are stable and long-lived they will... more...

  • Ferroelectric-Gate Field Effect Transistor Memoriesby Byung-Eun Park; Hiroshi Ishiwara; Masanori Okuyama; Shigeki Sakai; Sung-Min Yoon

    Springer Netherlands 2016; US$ 146.01

    This book provides comprehensive coverage of the materials characteristics, process technologies, and device operations for memory field-effect transistors employing inorganic or organic ferroelectric thin films. This transistor-type ferroelectric memory has interesting fundamental device physics and potentially large industrial impact.   Among... more...

  • Multicomponent Polymeric Materialsby Jin Kuk Kim; Sabu Thomas; Prosenjit Saha

    Springer Netherlands 2016; US$ 190.93

    The book offers an in-depth review of the materials design and manufacturing processes employed in the development of multi-component or multiphase polymer material systems. This field has seen rapid growth in both academic and industrial research, as multiphase materials are increasingly replacing traditional single-component materials in commercial... more...

  • Plasticity of Boronized Layersby M. G. Krukovich; B. A Prusakov; I. G Sizov

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 146.01

    This book presents the physico-technical basis and current state of the technology of boronized layers. Special attention is given to the layer structure and morphology of allocated phases and distributions in a superficial zone of chemical compounds. Two- and multi-component phases of alloys and diffusion processes in a self-organizing mode are... more...

  • Transmission Electron Microscopyby C. Barry Carter; David B. Williams

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.71

    This text is a companion volume to Transmission Electron Microscopy: A Textbook for Materials Science by Williams and Carter. The aim is to extend the discussion of certain topics that are either rapidly changing at this time or that would benefit from more detailed discussion than space allowed in the primary text. World-renowned researchers have... more...

  • Quantal Density Functional Theoryby Viraht Sahni

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 101.08

    This book is on quantal density functional theory (QDFT) which is a time-dependent local effective potential theory of the electronic structure of matter.  The time-independent QDFT constitutes a special case.  The 2 nd edition describes the further development of the theory, and extends it to include the presence of an external magnetostatic... more...
