  • Foundations of the Probabilistic Mechanics of Discrete Mediaby D. R. Axelrad

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 31.95

    This latest volume in the Foundations & Philosophy of Science & Technology series provides an account of probabilistic functional analysis and shows its applicability in the formulation of the behaviour of discrete media with the inclusion of microstructural effects. Although quantum mechanics have long been recognized as a stochastic theory, the... more...

  • Elements of Mechanicsby P.F. Kelly

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 79.95

    The first volume in a three-part series, Elements of Mechanics provides a rigorous calculus-based introduction to classical physics. It considers diverse phenomena in a systematic manner and emphasises the development of consistent and coherent models guided by symmetry considerations and the application of general principles. Modern developments... more...
