About the Series

This long-standing, widely respected series was founded in 1961 in an effort to put forward coherent works that summarize developments in the most active and interesting areas of physics. It continues to serve that need, including textbooks, monographs, lecture notes, and professional manuals that aid in offering synthetic, authoritative accounts of the present state of the art in key subject areas of wide interest to physicists. The caliber of authors published in the series speaks to the high standards of its publication: R. P. Feynman, D. Pines, L. P. Kadanoff, R. Hofstadter, J. Schwinger, and many others.

New books in the series are commissioned by invitation. Authors are also welcome to contact the publisher, Lou Chosen, Executive Editor, lou.chosen@taylorandfrancis.com, to discuss new title ideas.

The Field Theoretic Renormalization Group in Critical Behavior Theory and Stochastic Dynamics

The Field Theoretic Renormalization Group in Critical Behavior Theory and Stochastic Dynamics

1st Edition

A.N. Vasil'ev
April 28, 2004

This volume provides a general field-theoretical picture of critical phenomena and stochastic dynamics and helps readers develop a practical skill for calculations. This education on the practical skill sets this book apart: it is the first to give a full technical introduction to the field. Both...

Computational Plasma Physics: With Applications To Fusion And Astrophysics

Computational Plasma Physics: With Applications To Fusion And Astrophysics

1st Edition

Toshi Tajima
February 13, 2004

The physics of plasmas is an extremely rich and complex subject as the variety of topics addressed in this book demonstrates. This richness and complexity demands new and powerful techniques for investigating plasma physics. An outgrowth from his graduate course teaching, now with corrections,...

Statistical Plasma Physics, Volume II: Condensed Plasmas

Statistical Plasma Physics, Volume II: Condensed Plasmas

1st Edition

Setsuo Ichimaru
February 13, 2004

The aim of this book is to elucidate a number of basic topics in physics of dense plasmas that interface with condensed matter physics, atomic physics, nuclear physics, and astrophysics. The different plasmas examined here include astrophysical dense plasmas - like those found in the interiors,...

Statistical Plasma Physics, Volume I: Basic Principles

Statistical Plasma Physics, Volume I: Basic Principles

1st Edition

Setsuo Ichimaru
February 13, 2004

Plasma physics is an integral part of statistical physics, complete with its own basic theories. Designed as a two-volume set, Statistical Plasma Physics is intended for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses on plasma and statistical physics, and as such, its presentation is...

The Framework Of Plasma Physics

The Framework Of Plasma Physics

1st Edition

Richard D. Hazeltine, Francois L. Waelbroeck
January 23, 2004

Plasma physics is a necessary part of our understanding of stellar and galactic structure. It determines the magnetospheric environment of the earth and other planets; it forms the research frontier in such areas as nuclear fusion, advanced accelerators, and high power lasers; and its applications...

Are There Really Neutrinos?: An Evidential History

Are There Really Neutrinos?: An Evidential History

1st Edition

Allan Franklin
August 01, 2003

In this intriguing and accessible book, physicist Allan Franklin examines the experiments on neutrino oscillations. He argues that this history gives us good reason to believe in the existence of the neutrino, a particle that interacts so weakly with matter that its interaction length is measured...

Plate Tectonics: An Insider's History Of The Modern Theory Of The Earth

Plate Tectonics: An Insider's History Of The Modern Theory Of The Earth

1st Edition

Naomi Oreskes
February 07, 2003

Can anyone today imagine the earth without its puzzle-piece construction of plate tectonics? The very term, "plate tectonics," coined only thirty-five years ago, is now part of the vernacular, part of everyone's understanding of the way the earth works.The theory, research, data collection, and...

The Physics Of Laser Plasma Interactions

The Physics Of Laser Plasma Interactions

1st Edition

William Kruer
January 29, 2003

Based on a graduate course in plasma physics taught at University of California, Davis, this classic book provides a concise overview and a physically-motivated treatment of the major plasma processes which determine the interaction of intense light waves with plasmas. It also includes a discussion...

Feynman And Computation

Feynman And Computation

1st Edition

Anthony Hey
June 27, 2002

Richard P. Feynman made profoundly important and prescient contributions to the physics of computing, notably with his seminal articles ?There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom? and ?Simulating Physics with Computers.? These two provocative papers (both reprinted in this volume) anticipated, decades...

Feynman Lectures On Gravitation

Feynman Lectures On Gravitation

1st Edition

Richard Feynman, Fernando Morinigo, William Wagner, Brian Hatfield, David Pines
June 20, 2002

The Feynman Lectures on Gravitation are based on notes prepared during a course on gravitational physics that Richard Feynman taught at Caltech during the 1962-63 academic year. For several years prior to these lectures, Feynman thought long and hard about the fundamental problems in gravitational...

The Eightfold Way

The Eightfold Way

1st Edition

Murray Gell-mann
October 20, 2000

This monograph presents thirty research papers dealing with the classification of strongly interacting particles and their interaction according to the eightfold way. In each chapter the authors' commentary introduces the reprints....
