#### Evolution of Phase Transitions

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 46.00This 2006 work addresses development and application of continuum-mechanical models that describe the macroscopic response of certain materials. more...

#### Vortices in Bose-Einstein Condensates

Birkhäuser Boston 2007; US$ 133.61Since the first experimental achievement of Bose–Einstein condensates (BEC) in 1995 and the award of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2001, the properties of these gaseous quantum fluids have been the focus of international interest in condensed matter physics. This monograph is dedicated to the mathematical modeling of some specific experiments which... more...

#### Artificial Gauge Fields with Ultracold Atoms in Optical Lattices

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 110.07This work reports on the generation of artificial magnetic fields with ultracold atoms in optical lattices using laser-assisted tunneling, as well as on the first Chern-number measurement in a non-electronic system. It starts with an introduction to the Hofstadter model, which describes the dynamics of charged particles on a square lattice subjected... more...

#### Methods of Statistical Physics

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95Methods of Statistical Physics is an exposition of the tools of statistical mechanics, which evaluates the kinetic equations of classical and quantized systems. The book also analyzes the equations of macroscopic physics, such as the equations of hydrodynamics for normal and superfluid liquids and macroscopic electrodynamics. The text gives particular... more...

#### Decoherence, Entanglement and Information Protection in Complex Quantum Systems

Springer Netherlands 2005; US$ 195.68Dynamics of an open system interacting with theenvironment considered as a thermostate may be formulatedin terms of a master equation with an integral operator allowing for the relaxation process, [Zwanzig 1960]. In some part- ular cases this operator hasashort-lastingkernel that enables one to consider therelaxation as a Markovian process and to obtainthe... more...

#### Generalized Boltzmann Physical Kinetics

Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 210.00The most important result obtained by Prof. B. Alexeev and reflected in the book is connected with new theory of transport processes in gases, plasma and liquids. It was shown by Prof. B. Alexeev that well-known Boltzmann equation, which is the basement of the classical kinetic theory, is wrong in the definite sense. Namely in the Boltzmann equation... more...

#### Unified Non-Local Theory of Transport Processes

Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 255.00Unified Non-Local Theory of Transport Processess , 2 nd Edition provides a new theory of transport processes in gases, plasmas and liquids. It is shown that the well-known Boltzmann equation, which is the basis of the classical kinetic theory, is incorrect in the definite sense. Additional terms need to be added leading to a dramatic change in transport... more...

#### Quantum Information and Coherence

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 134.53This book offers an introduction to key topics in quantum information science and quantum coherent phenomena, covering quantum retrodiction, ultracold quantum gases in optical lattices, optomechanics, quantum algorithms, quantum key distribution and much more. more...

#### Thermodynamics, Gibbs Method and Statistical Physics of Electron Gases

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 220.14This book deals with theoretical thermodynamics and the statistical physics of electron and particle gases. It treats the laws of thermodynamics from a classical and a quantum theoretical view point. The free energy is calculated with a Gibbs formalism. more...
