#### Electromagnetic Scattering from Random Media

OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 129.99The book develops the dynamical theory of scattering from random media from first principles. Its key findings are to characterize the time evolution of the scattered field in terms of stochastic differential equations, and to illustrate this framework in simulation and experimental data analysis. The physical models contain all correlation information... more...

#### Interacting Particle Systems

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 52.58From the reviews "[...] This book presents a complete treatment of a new class of random processes, which have been studied intensively during the last fifteen years. None of this material has ever appeared in book form before. …The high quality of this work, [...] , makes a fascinating subject and its open problem as accessible as possible. [...]"... more...

#### Neutron Fluctuations

Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 225.00The transport of neutrons in a multiplying system is an area of branching processes with a clear formalism. Neutron Fluctuations presents an account of the mathematical tools used in describing branching processes, which are then used to derive a large number of properties of the neutron distribution in multiplying systems with or without an external... more...

#### Phase Transitions of Interacting Particle Systems

World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 76.00 US$ 69.16Recently, interacting particle systems have been studied widely from the standpoints of mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology. Many researchers are becoming interested in this field.This book focuses on the phase transitions of interacting particle systems, especially their critical values and order parameters. It poses the following question:... more...

#### Psychiatrische Gesundheits- und Krankenpflege - Mental Health Care

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 7.18Der Mensch ist mehr als die Summe seiner Organe. Pflegende benötigen Kenntnisse über psychische, somatische, soziale und rechtliche Aspekte. Diese vermittelt das vorliegende praxisbezogene Grundlagenwerk... more...

#### Random Processes in Physics and Finance

OUP Oxford 2006; US$ 69.99This book uniquely presents the theoretical treatment of random processes in physics and finance, including applications to laser and semiconductor physics, light propagation in scattering media and investment decisions. more...

#### The Random-Cluster Model

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 97.84Therandom-clustermodelwasinventedbyCees[Kees]FortuinandPietKasteleyn around 1969 as a uni?cation of percolation, Ising, and Potts models, and as an extrapolation of electrical networks. Their original motivation was to harmonize the series and parallel laws satis?ed by such systems. In so doing, they initiated a study in stochastic geometry which has... more...

#### Stochastic Analysis And Mathematical Physics (samp/anestoc 2002)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 118.00 US$ 107.38The book collects a series of papers centered on two main streams: Feynman path integral approach to Quantum Mechanics and statistical mechanics of quantum open systems. Key authors discuss the state-of-the-art within their fields of expertise. In addition, the volume includes a number of contributed papers with new results, which have been thoroughly... more...

#### Stochastic Analysis in Mathematical Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 100.00 US$ 91.00The ideas and principles of stochastic analysis have managed to penetrate into various fields of pure and applied mathematics in the last 15 years; it is particularly true for mathematical physics. This volume provides a wide range of applications of stochastic analysis in fields as varied as statistical mechanics, hydrodynamics, Yang–Mills... more...

#### Stochastic Equations through the Eye of the Physicist

Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 350.00Fluctuating parameters appear in a variety of physical systems and phenomena. They typically come either as random forces/sources, or advecting velocities, or media (material) parameters, like refraction index, conductivity, diffusivity, etc. The well known example of Brownian particle suspended in fluid and subjected to random molecular bombardment... more...
