Selected Works of Louis Neel

1st Edition

Nicholas Kurti
January 01, 1988

One of the world's foremost authorities on magnetism, Professor Louis Neel was the recipient of the 1970 Nobel Prize in Physics. With all but ten of Neel's 150 original papers being written in French, the aim of this English edition is to bring this important work to a wider readership....

Tunneling Phenomena in Chemical Physics

1st Edition

V.I. Gol'danskii, L.I. Trakhtenberg, V.N. Fleurov
January 01, 1988

Surveys the contemporary concepts and theoretical and experimental results of tunneling processes. Examines from a unified viewpoint not only chemical reactions but also other physical physicochemical and biological phenomena in which the tunneling effect is of great importance. Covers the general...

Emerging Syntheses In Science

1st Edition

David Pines
January 01, 1988

Evolution of self-replicating macromolecules through natural selection is a dynamically ordered process. Two concepts are introduced to describe the physical regularity of macromolecular evolution: sequence space and quasi-species. Natural selection means localization of a mutant distribution in...

Electromagnetic Inverse Profiling: Theory and Numerical Implementation

1st Edition

December 01, 1987

This monograph is concerned with the direct-scattering of electromagnetic waves by one- and two-dimensional objects, and the use of this technique in one-dimensional inverse profiling. It discusses results of research into the method of this technique and its application to specific problems....

Microscopy of Semiconducting Materials 1987, Proceedings of the Institute of Physics Conference, Oxford University, April 1987

1st Edition

October 01, 1987

The various forms of microscopy and related microanalytical techniques are making unique contributions to semiconductor research and development that underpin many important areas of microelectronics technology. Microscopy of Semiconducting Materials 1987 highlights the progress that is being made...

Handbook of Molecular Lasers

1st Edition

Peter Cheo
August 31, 1987

This book covers laser topics that have been a part of the rapid expansion of optical engineering, including emission spectra of molecular lasers, CO2 transversely excited atmospheric-pressure lasers, and radiofrequency discharge excited CO2 lasers....

Handbook of Bimolecular and Termolecular Gas Reactions, Volume III, Part B

1st Edition

J. Alistair Kerr
June 30, 1987

This two volume set presents gas-phase kinetic data published in the lieterature between 1978 and 1982, inclusive. The data are organized according to the class of bimolecular or termolecular reactions. For each reaction, the table entry includes Arrhenius parameters and rate constants,...

Chaos, Noise and Fractals

1st Edition

E. Roy Pike, L .A. Lugiato
January 01, 1987

The study of nonlinear dynamical systems has been gathering momentum since the late 1950s. It now constitutes one of the major research areas of modern theoretical physics. The twin themes of fractals and chaos, which are linked by attracting sets in chaotic systems that are fractal in structure,...

Hamiltonian Dynamical Systems: A REPRINT SELECTION

1st Edition

R.S MacKay, J.D Meiss
January 01, 1987

Classical mechanics is a subject that is teeming with life. However, most of the interesting results are scattered around in the specialist literature, which means that potential readers may be somewhat discouraged by the effort required to obtain them. Addressing this situation, Hamiltonian...

Vectors and Vector Operators

1st Edition

P.G Dawber
January 01, 1987

Vectors and Vector Operators provides an introduction to the use of vectors and vector operators that will be especially helpful to first-year undergraduates of the physical sciences. The vector forms of many of the equations of physics clearly demonstrate the essential geometrical relationships...

Laser Light Pressure on Atoms

1st Edition

V.G. Minogin, V.S. Letokhov
January 01, 1987

Comprehensive single source for the theory on and status of current research into laser light pressure on atoms and atomic particles. Part I presents the fundamentals of the theory of resonance light pressure, analyzes the basic relations of the radiatio9n force acting on atomic particles,...
