  • Kinetic Theory of Nonequilibrium Ensembles, Irreversible Thermodynamics, and Generalized Hydrodynamicsby Byung Chan Eu

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00

    This book presents the fundamentals of irreversible thermodynamics for nonlinear transport processes in gases and liquids, as well as for generalized hydrodynamics extending the classical hydrodynamics of Navier, Stokes, Fourier, and Fick. Together with its companion volume on relativistic theories, it provides a comprehensive picture of the... more...

  • Modeling and Approximation in Heat Transferby Leon R. Glicksman; John H. Lienhard V

    Cambridge University Press 2016; US$ 100.00 US$ 82.00

    This book describes the approach to engineering solutions through simplified modeling of important physical features and approximating their behavior. more...

  • Cryostat Designby J. G. Weisend II

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This book enables the reader to learn the fundamental and applied aspects of practical cryostat design by examining previous design choices and resulting cryostat performance. Through a series of extended case studies the book presents an overview of existing cryostat design covering a wide range of cryostat types and applications, including the magnet... more...

  • Multi-species Systems in Optical Latticesby Fernanda Pinheiro

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This highly interdisciplinary thesis covers a wide range of topics relating to the interface of cold atoms, quantum simulation, quantum magnetism and disorder.  With a self-contained presentation, it provides a broad overview of the rapidly evolving area of cold atoms and is of interest to both undergraduates and researchers working in the field.... more...

  • Superconformal Index on RP2 × S1 and 3D Mirror Symmetryby Akinori Tanaka

    Springer Singapore 2016; US$ 99.00

    The author introduces the supersymmetric localization technique, a new approach for computing path integrals in quantum field theory on curved space (time) defined with interacting Lagrangian.  The author focuses on a particular quantity called the superconformal index (SCI), which is defined by considering the theories on the product space... more...

  • A Primer on Quantum Fluidsby Carlo F. Barenghi; Nick G. Parker

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 54.99

    The aim of this primer is to cover the essential theoretical information, quickly and concisely, in order to enable senior undergraduate and beginning graduate students to tackle projects in topical research areas of quantum fluids, for example, solitons, vortices and collective modes. The selection of the material, both regarding the content... more...

  • Automotive Air Conditioningby Quansheng Zhang; Shengbo Eben Li; Kun Deng

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 119.00

    This book presents research advances in automotive AC systems using an interdisciplinary approach combining both thermal science, and automotive engineering.

  • Technische Thermodynamikby Heinz Herwig; Christian Kautz; Andreas Moschallski

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2016; US$ 54.99

    Dieses Lehrbuch besticht durch sein didaktisches Konzept: Es werden nicht nur wichtige Größen, Begriffe und  Prozesse mit klaren Definitionen eingeführt und durch farbige Abbildungen verdeutlicht, sondern auch das Verständnis durch einen umfangreichen Fragen- und Diskussionsteil verstärkt. Aufgaben mit Ergebnisangabe und ausführlichen Lösungen... more...

  • How Systems Form and How Systems Breakby Chiang H. Ren

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 119.00

    Our world is composed of systems within systems?the machines we build, the information we share, the organizations we form, and elements of nature that surround us. Therefore, nearly every field of study and practice embodies behaviors stemming from system dynamics. Yet the study of systems has remained somewhat fragmented based on philosophies, methodologies,... more...

  • Beyond Standard Model Collider Phenomenology of Higgs Physics and Supersymmetryby Marc Christopher Thomas

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis studies collider phenomenology of physics beyond the Standard Model at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It also explores in detail advanced topics related to Higgs boson and supersymmetry ? one of the most exciting and well-motivated streams in particle physics. In particular, it finds a very large enhancement of multiple Higgs boson production... more...
