Theory Of Quantum Liquids: Superfluid Bose Liquids

Philippe Nozieres, David Pines
May 01, 1994

Originally published as two separate volumes, The Theory of Quantum Liquids is a classic text that attempts to describe the qualitative and unifying aspects of an extremely broad and diversified field. Volume I deals with '`'normal' Fremi liquids, such as 3He and electrons in metals. Volume II...

Visual Science and Engineering: Models and Applications

March 30, 1994

This work examines a broad spectrum of the latest topics in visual science, relating basic studies to applications and delineating points of intersection among the various disciplines that study the mechanisms of vision. It discusses, among other topics: the Purkinje-image eyetracker; the...

Modern ESCAThe Principles and Practice of X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy

Tery L. Barr
March 10, 1994

Modern ESCA: The Principles and Practice of X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy is a unique text/reference that focuses on the branch of electron spectroscopy generally labeled as either Electron Spectroscopy for Chemical Analysis (ESCA) or X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS). The book emphasizes...

Handbook of Crystal Structures and Magnetic Properties of Rare Earth Intermetallics

Andrej Szytula, Janusz Leciejewicz
March 08, 1994

Rare-earth intermetallics, also known as lanthanide elements, play an important role in the study of magnetic materials and the development of semi- and super-conducting materials. This handbook provides an up-to-date compilation of crystallographic, physical, and magnetic data on rare-earth...

The Early Universe

Edward Kolb, Michael Turner
January 31, 1994

The Early Universe has become the standard reference on forefront topics in cosmology, particularly to the early history of the Universe. Subjects covered include primordial nubleosynthesis, baryogenesis, phases transitions, inflation, dark matter, and galaxy formation, relics such as axions,...

Jo Nijs
January 01, 1994

One of the first books to cover advanced silicon-based technologies, Advanced Silicon and Semiconducting Silicon Alloy-Based Materials and Devices presents important directions for research into silicon, its alloy-based semiconducting devices, and its development in commercial applications. The...

Front Page Physics: A Century of Physics in the News

A.J Meadows, M.M Hancock-Beaulieu
January 01, 1994

From the beginning of the newspaper industry, scientific developments, research and results have been reported in the press, and, more than once, hit the headlines. Presented in language that can be understood by all, journalists have tirelessly detailed all exciting, humorous and major...

Quasi-Exactly Solvable Models in Quantum Mechanics

A.G Ushveridze
January 01, 1994

Exactly solvable models, that is, models with explicitly and completely diagonalizable Hamiltonians are too few in number and insufficiently diverse to meet the requirements of modern quantum physics. Quasi-exactly solvable (QES) models (whose Hamiltonians admit an explicit diagonalization only for...

REDUCE for Physicists

N MacDonald
January 01, 1994

The use of computer algebra systems in science and engineering has grown rapidly as more people realize their potential to solve tedious and extensive mathematical problems. REDUCE for Physicists provides a comprehensive introduction to one of the most widely available and simple to use computer...

Riddles in Your Teacup

P Ghose, D Home
January 01, 1994

Natural phenomena and ordinary, everyday things often contain surprises and puzzles when we attempt to understand them in terms of basic physical principles. Trying to explain what we see around us can even help us to understand physical principles more fully. Written by two well-known popularizers...

Supersymmetric Gauge Field Theory and String Theory

D. Bailin, Alexander Love
January 01, 1994

Designed as a sequel to the authors' Introduction to Gauge Field Theory, Supersymmetric Gauge Field Theory and String Theory introduces first-year graduate students to supersymmetric theories, including supergravity and superstring theories. Starting with the necessary background in quantum field...
