Power Production: What are the Risks?

1st Edition

D H Fremlin
January 01, 1989

The debate about nuclear power and the risks involved continues to rage but of course all forms of power production have their own particular and sometimes considerable risks. Power Production: What Are the Risks? includes completely new chapters to take into account the nuclear accident at...

Principles of Cosmology and Gravitation

1st Edition

Michael V Berry
January 01, 1989

General relativity and quantum mechanics have become the two central pillars of theoretical physics. Moreover, general relativity has important applications in astrophysics and high-energy particle physics. Covering the fundamentals of the subject, Principles of Cosmology and Gravitation describes...

The Fabry-Perot Interferometer: History, Theory, Practice and Applications

1st Edition

M Vaughan
January 01, 1989

The Fabry-Perot Interferometer: History, Theory, Practice and Applications presents an invaluable introduction to the Fabry-Perot interferometer, including a brief overview of its history, a look at its applications, and plenty of practical advice on how to use the instrument....

Universality in Chaos, 2nd edition

1st Edition

P Cvitanovic
January 01, 1989

Nature provides many examples of physical systems that are described by deterministic equations of motion, but that nevertheless exhibit nonpredictable behavior. The detailed description of turbulent motions remains perhaps the outstanding unsolved problem of classical physics. In recent years,...

Microelectronic Materials

1st Edition

C.R.M. Grovenor
January 01, 1989

This practical book shows how an understanding of structure, thermodynamics, and electrical properties can explain some of the choices of materials used in microelectronics, and can assist in the design of new materials for specific applications. It emphasizes the importance of the phase chemistry...

Laser-Plasma Interactions 4

1st Edition

M.B Hooper
January 01, 1989

Laser-Plasma Interactions 4 is the fourth book in a series devoted to the study of laser-plasma interactions. Subjects covered include laser light propagation, instabilities, compression and hydrodynamics, spectroscopy, diagnostics, computer code, dense plasmas, high-power lasers, X-UV sources and...

Mars The Next Step

1st Edition

Smith A E
January 01, 1989

The conquest of Earth's moon was merely a precursor to a more dramatic step forward, which will take men and women to an outpost that might eventually become a second home for the human race. Mars: The Next Step illustrates how the only feasible colonization of another planet in our solar system...

Theory Of Quantum Liquids: Normal Fermi Liquids

1st Edition

David Pines
January 01, 1989

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...

Emerging Syntheses In Science

1st Edition

David Pines
January 22, 1988

The Santa Fe Institute, as key element in its founding activities, sponsored two workshops on 'Emerging Syntheses in Science.' There was unanimous agreement among the participants that Professor Gell-Mann's keynote address and the ensuing talks were of such high quality and general interest that it...

Atomic Diffusion in III-V Semiconductors

1st Edition

Brian Tuck
January 01, 1988

III-V semiconductors, of which gallium arsenide is the best known, have been important for some years and appear set to become much more so in the future. They have principally contributed to two technologies: microwave devices and optoelectronics. Recent advances in the production of thin layers...

Parallel Computers 2: Architecture, Programming and Algorithms

1st Edition

R.W Hockney, C.R Jesshope
January 01, 1988

Since the publication of the first edition, parallel computing technology has gained considerable momentum. A large proportion of this has come from the improvement in VLSI techniques, offering one to two orders of magnitude more devices than previously possible. A second contributing factor in the...
