  • Heat and Mass Transferby Rajendra Karwa

    Springer Singapore 2016; US$ 97.71

    This textbook presents the classical treatment of the problems of heat transfer in an exhaustive manner with due emphasis on understanding of the physics of the problems. This emphasis is especially visible in the chapters on convective heat transfer.  Emphasis is laid on the solution of steady and unsteady two-dimensional heat conduction problems.... more...

  • The Universal Coefficient Theorem and Quantum Field Theoryby Andrei-Tudor Patrascu

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.71

    This thesis describes a new connection between algebraic geometry, topology, number theory and quantum field theory. It offers a pedagogical introduction to algebraic topology, allowing readers to rapidly develop basic skills, and it also presents original ideas to inspire new research in the quest for dualities. Its ambitious goal is to construct... more...

  • From QCD Flux Tubes to Gravitational S-matrix and Backby Victor Gorbenko

    Springer International Publishing 2016; Not Available

    This thesis studies various aspects of non-critical strings both as an example of a non-trivial and solvable model of quantum gravity and as a consistent approximation to the confining flux tube in quantum chromodynamics (QCD). It proposes and develops a new technique for calculating the finite volume spectrum of confining flux tubes. This technique... more...

  • Higgs, Supersymmetry and Dark Matter After Run I of the LHCby Béranger Dumont

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.71

    This work was nominated as an outstanding PhD thesis by the LPSC, Université Grenoble Alpes, France. The LHC Run 1 was a milestone in particle physics, leading to the discovery of the Higgs boson, the last missing piece of the so-called "Standard Model" (SM), and to important constraints on new physics, which challenge popular theories like weak-scale... more...

  • Processus irréversibles non linéaires en thermodynamiqueby Encyclopædia Universalis

    Primento Digital Publishing 2016; US$ 4.99

    Les progrès réalisés dans le domaine non linéaire sont beaucoup plus récents. On connaît cependant à leur sujet un critère d'évolution général régissant le comportement d'un système dissipatif, soumis à des contraintes stationnaires (Paul Glansdorff et Ilya Prigogine, 1954). Critères d'évolution... more...
