#### Glasses and Grains

Springer Basel 2011; US$ 94.48This volume of the Poincaré Seminar Series covers a key frontier in statistical physics, exploring leading-edge research on the related but little understood topics of glasses—especially the glass transition—and the statics and dynamics of granular systems. more...

#### Open Quantum Systems

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 50.78Revising the fundamental theory of open quantum systems in light of current progress, this book develops a unified approach by merging concepts and methods typically used in quantum optics, condensed matter, chemical physics and mathematical physics. more...

#### Hamiltonian Systems

Cambridge University Press 1990; US$ 45.00Hamiltonian Systems outlines the main results in the field, and considers the implications for quantum mechanics. more...

#### Liquid State Physics

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 88.00First published in 1974, Dr Croxton's book takes the reader from a consideration of the early ways in which the kinetic theory of gases was modified and applied to the liquid state, through a classical thermodynamic approach, to the modern cluster-diagrammatic quantum and statistical mechanical techniques. He includes chapters on the development and... more...

#### MEAN FIELD THEORIES AND DUAL VARIATION

Atlantis Press 2009; US$ 94.50A mathematical theory is introduced in this book to unify a large class of nonlinear partial differential equation (PDE) models for better understanding and analysis of the physical and biological phenomena they represent. The so-called mean field approximation approach is adopted to describe the macroscopic phenomena from certain microscopic principles... more...

#### Nonequilibrium Magnons

Wiley 2012; US$ 160.00 US$ 144.00This much-needed book addresses the concepts, models, experiments and applications of magnons and spin wave in magnetic devices. It fills the gap in the current literature by providing the theoretical and technological framework needed to develop innovative magnetic devices, such as recording devices and sensors. Starting with a historical review of... more...

#### Nonequilibrium Statistical Physics

Wiley 2013; US$ 145.00 US$ 130.50Authored by a well-known expert in the field of nonequilibrium statistical physics, this book is a coherent presentation of the subject suitable for masters and PhD students, as well as postdocs in physics and related disciplines. Starting from a general discussion of irreversibility and entropy, the method of nonequilibrium statistical operator is... more...

#### Statistical Mechanics, Kinetic theory, and Stochastic Processes

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Statistical Mechanics, Kinetic Theory, and Stochastic Processes presents the statistical aspects of physics as a "living and dynamic" subject. In order to provide an elementary introduction to kinetic theory, physical systems in which particle-particle interaction can be neglected are considered. Transport phenomena in the free-molecular flow region... more...

#### Quantum Gases

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 124.00 US$ 112.84The 1995 observation of Bose–Einstein condensation in dilute atomic vapours spawned the field of ultracold, degenerate quantum gases. Unprecedented developments in experimental design and precision control have led to quantum gases becoming the preferred playground for designer quantum many-body systems.This self-contained volume provides a... more...

#### Interaction Models

Cambridge University Press 1977; US$ 44.00This book is based on a set of lectures given to a mixed audience of physicists and mathematicians. more...
