#### Simple Views On Condensed Matter

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 38.00 US$ 34.58This volume is a selection of invaluable papers by P-G de Gennes 1991 Nobel Prize winner in Physics which have had a long-lasting impact on our understanding of condensed matter. Important ideas on polymers, liquid crystals and interfaces are described. more...

#### N-body Problems And Models

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 91.00 US$ 82.81The study and application of N -body problems has had an important role in the history of mathematics. In recent years, the availability of modern computer technology has added to their significance, since computers can now be used to model material bodies as atomic and molecular configurations, i.e. as N -body configurations. more...

#### Hubbard Operators In The Theory Of Strongly Correlated Electrons

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 91.00 US$ 82.81This book provides the first systematic discourse on a very peculiar approach to the theory of strongly correlated systems. Hubbard X-operators have been known for a long time but have not been widely used because of their awkward algebra. The book shows that it is possible to deal with X-operators even in the general multilevel local eigenstate system,... more...

#### Energy And Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 79.00 US$ 71.89Special Relativity (SR) is essentially grounded on the properties of space-time, i.e. isotropy of space and homogeneity of space and time (as a consequence of the equivalence of inertial frames) and on the Galilei principle of relativity. more...

#### The Classical And Quantum Dynamics Of The Multispherical Nanostructures

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 140.00 US$ 127.40In this book, the issues regarding the theory of optics and quantum optics of spherical multilayered systems are studied. In such systems the spatial scale of layers becomes comparable with the wavelength of radiation, which complicates the analysis of important quantities such as reflectivity and transmission. more...

#### The Electromagnetic Origin Of Quantum Theory And Light (2nd Edition)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 131.00 US$ 119.21Bell anchored the logic chain begun by Einstein, Rosen, and Podolsky and tested by Aspect et al. , showing that entangled electrons are nonlocal. Feynman showed that free electrons are nonlocal in that they travel between any two points using all possible paths. more...

#### Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots

Wiley 2005; US$ 83.95 US$ 75.56Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots Second Edition: Theoretical and Computational Physics of Semiconductor Nanostructures provides all the essential information, both theoretical and computational, for complete beginners to develop an understanding of how the electronic, optical and transport properties of quantum wells, wires and dots are calculated.... more...

#### Introduction to Mesoscopic Physics

Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 239.99"Mesoscopic physics" refers to the physics of structures larger than a nanometer (one billionth of a meter) but smaller than a micrometer (one millionth of a meter). This size range is the stage on which the exciting new research on submicroscopic and electronic and mechanical devices is being done. This research often crosses the boundary between... more...

#### Feynman's Thesis - A New Approach To Quantum Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 15.00 US$ 13.65Richard Feynman’s never previously published doctoral thesis formed the heart of much of his brilliant and profound work in theoretical physics. Entitled “The Principle of Least Action in Quantum Mechanics,” its original motive was to quantize the classical action-at-a-distance electrodynamics. Because that theory adopted an overall space–time viewpoint,... more...

#### First-principles Calculations In Real-space Formalism

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 116.00 US$ 105.56With cutting-edge materials and minute electronic devices being produced by the latest nanoscale fabrication technology, it is essential for scientists and engineers to rely on first-principles (ab initio) calculation methods to fully understand the electronic configurations and transport properties of nanostructures. It is now imperative to introduce... more...
