Basic Physics Of Radiotracers: Volume II

1st Edition

Earl W. Barnes
July 13, 2017

The opportunity to present the physics of radioactive processes in some detail apart from topics such as instrumentation which conventionally compete with it for spacer is most welcome. The material is intended to give a fairly complete introduction to radiation physics to those who which to have...

Metamaterials Modelling and Design

1st Edition

Didier Felbacq, Guy Bouchitté
July 12, 2017

The domain of metamaterials now covers many area of physics: electromagnetics, acoustics, mechanics, thermics, or even seismology. Huge literature is now available on the subject but the results are scattered. Although many ideas and possible applications have been proposed, which of these will...

Microdosimetry: Experimental Methods and Applications

1st Edition

Lennart Lindborg, Anthony Waker
July 11, 2017

Experimental microdosimetry deals with the measurement of charged particle energy deposition in tissue equivalent volumes, ranging in size from nanometres to micrometres. Microdosimetry is employed to improve our understanding of the relationship between radiation energy deposition, the resulting...

An Introduction to Gauge Theories

1st Edition

Nicola Cabibbo, Luciano Maiani, Omar Benhar
July 11, 2017

Written by world-leading experts in particle physics, this new book from Luciano Maiani and Omar Benhar, with contributions from the late Nicola Cabibbo, is based on Feynman’s path integrals. Key elements of gauge theories are described—Feynman diagrams, gauge-fixing, Faddeev-Popov ghosts—as well...

An Introduction to Physical Oncology: How Mechanistic Mathematical Modeling Can Improve Cancer Therapy Outcomes

1st Edition

Vittorio Cristini, Eugene Koay, Zhihui Wang
July 06, 2017

Physical oncology has the potential to revolutionize cancer research and treatment. The fundamental rationale behind this approach is that physical processes, such as transport mechanisms for drug molecules within tissue and forces exchanged by cancer cells with tissue, may play an equally...

The Standard Model and Beyond

2nd Edition

Paul Langacker
July 06, 2017

This new edition of The Standard Model and Beyond presents an advanced introduction to the physics and formalism of the standard model and other non-abelian gauge theories. It provides a solid background for understanding supersymmetry, string theory, extra dimensions, dynamical symmetry breaking,...

Redox Proteins in Supercomplexes and Signalosomes

1st Edition

Ricardo O. Louro, Irene Diaz-Moreno
July 01, 2017

Get Insight on the Function of Supercomplexes in Biological Systems Redox Proteins in Supercomplexes and Signalosomes is one of the first books to explore the key role played by redox proteins and their interaction network in a wide range of essential cellular processes in all domains of life. The...

Plasmonics and Super-Resolution Imaging

1st Edition

Zhaowei Liu
June 29, 2017

Plasmonics is an emerging field mainly developed within the past two decades. Due to its unique capabilities to manipulate light at deep subwavelength scales, plasmonics has been commonly treated as the most important part of nanophotonics. Plasmonic-assisted optical microscopy techniques,...

Drilling and Completion in Petroleum Engineering: Theory and Numerical Applications

1st Edition

Xinpu Shen, Mao Bai, William Standifird
June 29, 2017

Modern petroleum and petrotechnical engineering is increasingly challenging due to the inherently scarce and decreasing number of global petroleum resources. Exploiting these resources efficiently will require researchers, scientists, engineers and other practitioners to develop innovative...

Thermal Physics

2nd Edition

C.B.P. Finn
June 29, 2017

Concise yet thorough, accessible, authoritative, and affordable. These are the hallmarks of books in the remarkable Physics and its Applications series. Thermodynamics is an essential part of any physical sciences education, but it is so full of pitfalls and subtleties, that many students fail to...

Theoretical Modeling of Organohalide Perovskites for Photovoltaic Applications

1st Edition

Giacomo Giorgi, Koichi Yamashita
June 28, 2017

Perovskites are a class of recently discovered crystals with a multitude of innovative applications. In particular, a lead role is played by organic-inorganic halide perovskites (OIHPs) in solar devices. In 2013 Science and Nature selected perovskite solar cells as one of the biggest scientific...
