#### Non-Equilibrium Phase Transitions

Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 102.55This book describes two main classes of non-equilibrium phase-transitions: static and dynamics of transitions into an absorbing state, and dynamical scaling in far-from-equilibrium relaxation behavior and ageing. more...

#### Phase Transitions and Renormalization Group

OUP Oxford 2007; US$ 44.99The renormalization group is one of most important theoretical concepts that has emerged in physics during the twentieth century. It explains important properties of fundamental interactions at the microscopic scale, as well as universal properties of continuous macroscopic phase transitions. more...

#### The Kinetic Theory of Inert Dilute Plasmas

Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 153.24This book constructs all the transport properties of the system within the framework of linear irreversible thermodynamics. This includes a systematic study of all possible cross effects as well as the famous H-theorem. more...

#### Nonextensive Entropy

Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 69.99A great variety of complex phenomena in many scientific fields exhibit power-law behavior, reflecting a hierarchical or fractal structure. Many of these phenomena seem to be susceptible to description using approaches drawn from thermodynamics or statistical mechanics, particularly approaches involving the maximization of entropy and of Boltzmann-Gibbs... more...

#### Kinetics of Phase Transitions

CRC Press 2009; US$ 188.95Providing a comprehensive introduction with the necessary background material to make it accessible for a wide scientific audience, "Kinetics of Phase Transitions" presents a timely discussion of current developments in domain-growth kinetics. This book combines pedagogical chapters from various leading experts in this area and focuses on... more...

Well established in the community over two decades, it offers a large library of mathematics including several important classics. The volumes supply thorough and detailed expositions of the methods and ideas essential to the topics in question.... more...

#### A Guide to Monte Carlo Simulations in Statistical Physics

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 68.00This book expands the topic of Monte Carlo simulation for graduate students and researchers in physics. more...

#### Deterministic Chaos

Wiley 2006; US$ 203.00 US$ 182.70A new edition of this well-established monograph, this volume provides a comprehensive overview over the still fascinating field of chaos research. The authors include recent developments such as systems with restricted degrees of freedom but put also a strong emphasis on the mathematical foundations. Partly illustrated in color, this fourth edition... more...

#### Landau Fermi-Liquid Theory

Wiley 2008; US$ 145.00 US$ 130.50A professional reference for physicists working in condensed matter physics as well as in nuclear physics and astrophysics, on Landau's theory of Fermi liquids--a vital theory of both theoretical and practical use. The emphasis is on the practical development and application of the theory. more...

#### Econophysics and Sociophysics

Wiley 2007; US$ 290.00 US$ 261.00Using tricks to handle coupled nonlinear dynamical many-body systems, several advancements have already been made in understanding the behavior of markets/economic/social systems and their dynamics. The book intends to provide the reader with updated reviews on such major developments in both econophysics and sociophysics, by leading experts in the... more...
