#### Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Lattice Models

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 72.00An introduction to nonequilibrium statistical physics via lattice models; for researchers. more...

#### Relaxation and Diffusion in Complex Systems

Springer New York 2011; US$ 224.42Relaxation and diffusion are common phenomena in many branches of condensed matter physics, chemistry and materials sciences. This text presents experimental evidence of universal relaxation and diffusion properties in a range of complex materials and systems. more...

#### Order, Disorder and Criticality

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 78.00 US$ 70.98This book is the third volume of review papers on advanced problems of phase transitions and critical phenomena, following the success of the first two volumes in 2004 and in 2007. Broadly, the book aims to demonstrate that the phase transition theory, which experienced its ‘golden age’ during the 70s and 80s, is far from over and there is still a... more...

#### Thermomechanics of Phase Transitions in Classical Field Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 1993; US$ 76.00 US$ 69.16The complex processes of state changes can be interpreted by resorting to Statistical Quantum Mechanics. However, it is well known that a phenomenological description of state changes can be obtained by using the classical continuum theory. This book supplies a panoramic picture of known and new mathematical models which are suitable to describe phase... more...

#### From Phase Transitions to Chaos

World Scientific Publishing Company 1992; US$ 157.00 US$ 142.87This volume comprises about forty research papers and essays covering a wide range of subjects in the forefront of contemporary statistical physics. The contributors are renown scientists and leading authorities in several different fields. This book is dedicated to Péter Szépfalusy on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday. Emphasis is... more...

#### Lectures on Phase Transitions

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 52.00 US$ 47.32This book treats the problem of phase transitions, emphasizing the generality and universality of the methods and models used. The course is basically concentrated on the problems of vacuum degeneration in macroscopic systems and a fundamental concept of quasiaverages by Bogolubov playing a special role in the theory of phase transitions and critical... more...

#### Order, Disorder and Criticality

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 118.00 US$ 107.38This book is the second volume of review papers on advanced problems of phase transitions and critical phenomena, following the success of the first volume in 2004. Broadly, the volume aims to demonstrate that the phase transition theory, which experienced its 'golden age' during the 70s and 80s, is far from over and there is still a good... more...

#### Application of Integrable Systems to Phase Transitions

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 100.39This book practical book applies integrable systems to solve the phase transition problems. It provides a unified model for the densities of eigenvalues in quantum chromodynamics (QCD). more...

#### Understanding Quantum Phase Transitions

CRC Press 2010; US$ 139.95Quantum phase transitions (QPTs) offer wonderful examples of the radical macroscopic effects inherent in quantum physics: phase changes between different forms of matter driven by quantum rather than thermal fluctuations, typically at very low temperatures. QPTs provide new insight into outstanding problems such as high-temperature superconductivity... more...

#### Effective Field Approach to Phase Transitions and Some Applications to Ferroelectrics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 144.00 US$ 131.04This book begins by introducing the effective field approach, the simplest approach to phase transitions. It provides an intuitive approximation to the physics of such diverse phenomena as liquid-vapor transitions, ferromagnetism, superconductivity, order-disorder in alloys, ferroelectricity, superfluidity and ferroelasticity. The connection between... more...
