The book is a first course where it is much more important to apply exact theory to simple cases than to apply approximate theory to complex cases. Most of the book is concerned with particles without intrinsic ¡§spin¡¨.

SD03-463 Essentials of Biophysics.
  Elmundo, Deah E./ 9781680958393/ Price:US$ 145.00
Book Cover The book provides the background needed for fundamental concepts in biophysics. Biophysics is a bridge between biology and physics, the study of biological systems and biological processes using physics-based methods or based on physical principles. Biology studies life in its variety and complexity. It describes how organisms go about getting food, communicating, sensing the environment, and reproducing. Biophysics is a molecular science that seeks to explain biological function in terms of the molecular structures and properties of specific molecules. An important area of biophysical study is the detailed analysis of the structure of molecules in living systems. The best-known achievement related to this area is the model of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), the hereditary material of life.
SD03-463 Quantum Mechanics: A Modern Approach.
  Elmundo, Deah E./ 9781680958065/ Price:US$ 145.00
This book provides a comprehensive discussion of quantum mechanics and illustrates the common threads associating numerous different miracles and subfields of physics. Quantum mechanics is the science of the very small. It explains the behaviour of matter and its interactions with energy on the scale of atoms and subatomic particles. Quantum mechanics (QM) developed over many decades, beginning as a set of controversial mathematical explanations of experiments that the math of classical mechanics could not explain. It began at the turn of the 20th century, around the same time that Albert Einstein published his theory of relativity, a separate mathematical revolution in physics that describes the motion of things at high speeds.
SD03-463 An Introduction to Particle Physics.
  Elmundo, Deah E./ 9781680958072/ Price:US$ 145.00
Book Cover Particle physics is the study of the fundamental particles of the universe, or, in other words, particle physics is the study of really, really small stuff. Modern particle physics research is focused on subatomic particles, which have less structure than atoms. These include atomic constituents such as electrons, protons, and neutrons (protons and neutrons are actually composite particles, made up of quarks), particles produced by radiative and scattering processes, such as photons, neutrinos, and muons, as well as a wide range of exotic particles. The particles that are dealt with in this field are governed by quantum mechanics. This signifies that they may show both wave-like and particle qualities. The overarching goal of particle physics is to identify the simplest objects of which matter is composed of, and to understand the integral forces that drive their interactions and combinations.

SD03-462 Laws of Thermodynamics. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955026/ Price:US$ 79.95
Book Cover Energy exists in many forms, such as heat, light, chemical energy, and electrical energy. Energy is the ability to bring about change or to do work. Thermodynamics, the branch of physics, is the study of energy that deals with the relationships between heat and other forms of energy. In particular, it describes how thermal energy is converted to and from other forms of energy and how it a ects matter. Thermodynamics, then, is concerned with several properties of matter; foremost among these is heat. Heat is energy transferred between substances or systems due to a temperature di erence between them. The amount of heat transferred by a substance depends on the speed and number of atoms or molecules in motion. The faster the atoms or molecules move, the higher the temperature, and the more atoms or molecules that are in motion, the greater the quantity of heat they transfer. Temperature is "a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a sample of matter, expressed in terms of units or degrees designated on a standard scale. The fundamental principles of thermodynamics were originally expressed in three laws. Later, it was determined that a more fundamental law had been neglected, apparently because it had seemed so obvious that it did not need to be stated explicitly. To form a complete set of rules, scientists decided this most fundamental law needed to be included.
SD03-462 Noise and Vibration Control. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955071/ Price:US$ 79.95
Book Cover Vibration and noise are two interrelated terms in the eld of mechanical engineering. Vibration is caused by unbalanced inertial forces and moments whereas noise is the result of such vibrations. Noise control or noise mitigation is a set of strategies to reduce noise pollution or to reduce the impact of that noise, whether outdoors or indoors. Noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH), also known as noise and vibration (N&V), is the study and modi cation of the noise and vibration characteristics of vehicles, particularly cars and trucks. While noise and vibration can be readily measured, harshness is a subjective quality, and is measured either via "jury" evaluations, or with analytical tools that can provide results re ecting human subjective impressions.
SD03-462 Geometrical Optics.
  / 9781680955729/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover Geometrical optics refer to light propagation in terms of rays. The ray in geometric optics is an abstraction, orinstrument, useful in approximating the paths along which light propagates in certain classes of circumstances. Geometrical optics is often simpli ed by making the paraxial approximation, or "small angle approximation." The mathematical behavior then becomes linear, allowing optical components and systems to be described by simple matrices. Geometrical optics does not account for certain optical e ects such as di raction and interference. This simpli cation is useful in practice; it is an excellent approximation when the wavelength is smallcompared to the size of structures with which the light interacts. The techniques are particularly useful indescribing geometrical aspects of imaging, including optical aberrations.
SD03-462 General Relativity.
  / 9781680955774/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover General relativity (or general theory of relativity) is the geometric theory of gravitation published by AlbertEinstein in 1915 and the current description of gravitation in modern physics. General relativity generalizes special relativity and Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a uni ed description of gravity as a geometric property of space and time, or spacetime. In particular, the curvature of space-time is directly related to the energy and momentum of whatever matter and radiation are present. The relation is speci ed by the Einstein eld equations, a system of partial di erential equations. Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity is one of the towering achievements of 20th-century physics. Einstein proposed that objects such as the sun andthe Earth change this geometry. In the presence of matter and energy it can evolve, stretch and warp, forming ridges, mountains and valleys that cause bodies moving through it to zigzag and curve. So although Earth appears to be pulled towards the sun by gravity, there is no such force. It is simply the geometry of space-time around the sun telling Earth how to move. The general theory of relativity has far-reaching consequences. It not only explains the motion of the planets; it can also describe the history and expansion of the universe, the physics of black holes and the bending of light from distant stars and galaxies.
SD03-462 Classical and General Mechanics.
  / 9781680955811/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover Mechanics concerned with the behavior of physical bodies when subjected to forces or displacements, and the subsequent e ects of the bodies on their environment. During the early modern period, scientists such as Khayaam, Galileo, Kepler, and Newton, laid the foundation for what is now known as classical mechanics. Classical mechanics was the rst branch of Physics to be discovered, and is the foundation upon which all other branches of Physics are built. Moreover, classical mechanics has many important applications in other areas ofscience, such as Astronomy, Chemistry, Geology, and Engineering. Classical mechanics is also of great signi -cance outside the realm of science. After all, the sequence of events leading to the discovery of classicalmechanics--starting with the ground-breaking work of Copernicus, continuing with the researches of Galileo,Kepler, and Descartes, and culminating in the monumental achievements of Newton--involved the complete overthrow of the Aristotelian picture of the Universe, which had previously prevailed for more than a millennium, and its replacement by a recognizably modern picture in which humankind no longer played a privileged role.
SD03-462 Atomic Spectra and Atomic Structure.
  / 9781680955828/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover When atoms are excited they emit light of certain wavelengths which correspond to di erent colors. Theemitted light can be observed as a series of colored lines with dark spaces in between; this series of colored lines is called a line or atomic spectra. Each element produces a unique set of spectral lines. Since no two elements emit the same spectral lines, elements can be identi ed by their line spectrum. As the atomic electron energy levels are unique to each element, the lines in a spectrum (emission or absorption) can be used to identify the elements present in the source (a star, say) or gas between the source and us (e.g. the interstellar medium). The light electronic transitions in atoms produces may not be in the visual part of the electromagnetic spectrum, but for atoms that are neutral or have lost only one or two electrons, most lines are in the UV, visual, or near infrared. For highly ionized atoms, the lines are found in the extreme UV or x-ray region.
SD03-462 Quantum Electrodynamics.
  / 9781680955835/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover Quantum electrodynamics, commonly referred to as QED, is a quantum eld theory of the electromagneticforce. QED is a relativistic theory in that Albert Einstein¡¦s theory of special relativity is built into each of its equations. Because the behavior of atoms and molecules is primarily electromagnetic in nature, all of atomic physics can be considered a test laboratory for the theory. QED applies to all electromagnetic phenomena associated with charged fundamental particles such as electrons and positrons, and the associated phenomena such as pair production, electron-positron annihilation, Compton scattering, etc. It was used to precisely model some quantum phenomena which had no classical analogs, such as the Lamb shift and the anomalous magneticmoment of the electron. QED was the rst successful quantum eld theory, incorporating such ideas as particle creation and annihilation into a self-consistent framework. The development of the theory was the basis of the 1965 Nobel Prize in physics, awarded to Richard Feynman, Julian Schwinger and Sin-itero Tomonaga.

SD03-462 Problems in Thermodynamics.
  / 9781680955859/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover Thermodynamics is the eld of physics that deals with the relationship between heat and other properties(such as pressure, density, temperature, etc.) in a substance. Speci cally, thermodynamics focuses largely on how a heat transfer is related to various energy changes within a physical system undergoing a thermodynamic process. Such processes usually result in work being done by the system and are guided by the laws of thermodynamics. Each law leads to the de nition of thermodynamic properties which help us to understand and predict the operation of a physical system. The heat of a material is understood as a representation of the energy contained within the particles of that material. This is known as the kinetic theory of gases, though the concept applies in varying degrees to solids and liquids as well. The heat from the motion of these particles can transfer into nearby particles, and therefore into other parts of the material or other materials, through a variety of means.
SD03-462 Problems in Electricity and Magnetism.
  / 9781680955866/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover Electricity and magnetism are manifestations of a single underlying electromagnetic force. Electromagnetism is a branch of physical science that describes the interactions of electricity and magnetism, both as separate phenomena and as a singular electromagnetic force. A magnetic eld is created by a moving electric currentand a magnetic eld can induce movement of charges (electric current). The rules of electromagnetism alsoexplain geomagnetic and electromagnetic phenomena by explaining how charged particles of atoms interact.There is much symmetry between electricity and magnetism. It is possible for electricity to give rise to magnetism, and symmetrically for magnetism to give rise to electricity (as in the exchanges within an electric transformer). It is an exchange of just this kind that constitutes electromagnetic waves. These waves, although they don't need a medium of propagation, are slowed when traveling through a transparent substance.
SD03-462 Theoretical Physics.
  / 9781680955873/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover The advancement of science depends in general on the interplay between experimental studies and theory. Insome cases, theoretical physics adheres to standards of mathematical rigor while giving little weight to experiments and observations. Theoretical physicists use mathematics to describe certain aspects of Nature. Sir Isaac Newton was the rst theoretical physicist, although in his own time his profession was called "natural philosophy". The main purpose of theoretical physics is to understand physical phenomena. Accurate understanding is possible only using mathematical models. In the best case, experimental observations can be explained using only a small number of basic assumptions. Using the models it is possible to calculate the properties of the system under di erent conditions and predict new phenomena. Today's theoretical physicists are often working on the boundaries of known mathematics, sometimes inventing new mathematics as they need it, like Newton did with calculus.
SD03-462 Semiconductor Physics.
  / 9781680955880/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover Semiconductors are materials which have a conductivity between conductors (generally metals) and nonconductors or insulators. Semiconductors can be pure elements, such as silicon or germanium, or compounds such as gallium arsenide or cadmium selenide. Semiconductor devices are all around us.

Semiconductor devices are contained in television sets, portable radios, stereo equipment, and much more. Science and industry also rely heavily on semiconductor devices. Research laboratories use these devices in all sorts of electronic instruments to perform tests, measurements, and numerous other experimental tasks. Industrial control systems (such as those used to manufacture automobiles) and automatic telephone exchanges also use semiconductors. Even today heavy-duty versions of the solid-state recti er diode are being use to convert large amounts of power for electric railroads. Of the many di erent applications for solid-state devices, space systems, computers, and data processing equipment are some of the largest consumers.

Polymers in the natural world have been around since the beginning of time. Starch, cellulose, and rubber all possess polymeric properties. Man-made polymers have been studied since 1832. Today, the polymer industry has grown to be larger than the aluminum, copper and steel industries combined. Polymers already have a range of applications that far exceeds that of any other class of material available to man. Current applications extend from adhesives, coatings, foams, and packaging materials to textile and industrial bers, composites, electronic devices, biomedical devices, optical devices, andprecursors for many newly developed high-tech ceramics.
SD03-462 Applied Mechanics.
  / 9781680955910/ Price:US$ 64.95
Applied mechanics is a branch of the physical sciences and the practical application of mechanics. Appliedmechanics describes the response of bodies (solids and uids) or systems of bodies to external forces. Someexamples of mechanical systems include the ow of a liquid under pressure, the fracture of a solid from anapplied force, or the vibration of an ear in response to sound. A practitioner of the discipline is known as a mechanician. Applied mechanics bridges the gap between physical theory and its application to technology. As such, applied mechanics is used in many elds of engineering, especially mechanical engineering. In this context, it is commonly referred to as engineering mechanics. Much of modern engineering mechanics is based on Isaac Newton's laws of motion while the modern practice of their application can be traced back to Stephen Timoshenko, who is said to be the father of modern engineering mechanics.
SD03-462 Wave Mechanics.
  / 9781680955927/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover Wave mechanics refers to the mathematical description of atomic and subatomic particles in terms of their wave characteristics. What characteristics, properties, or behaviors are shared by the phenomena that we typically characterize as being a wave? How can waves be described in a manner that allows us to understand their basic nature and qualities? A wave can be described as a disturbance that travels through a medium from one location to another location. Wave motion transfers energy from one point to another, which displace particles of the transmission medium¡Vthat is, with little or no associated mass transport. Waves consist, instead, of oscillations or vibrations (of a physical quantity), around almost xed locations. Waves are described by a wave equation which sets out how the disturbance proceeds over time. The mathematical form of this equation varies depending on the type of wave. Further, the behavior of particles in quantum mechanics are described by waves. In addition, gravitational waves also travel through space, which are a result of a vibration or movement in gravitational elds. A wave can be transverse, where a disturbance creates oscillations that are perpendicular to the propagation of energy transfer, or longitudinal: the oscillations are parallel to the direction of energy propagation. While mechanical waves can be both transverse and longitudinal, all electromagnetic waves are transverse in free space.

Beyond Einstein and E = Mc2.
  Fridman, A. M./ 9781907343315/ Price:¢G 60.00
Book Cover he origin of E = mc2 may be understood since days of Newton but qualitatively. If Einstein¡¦s September 1905 paper is critically analyzed (with different values of variables) then the feasible result is ¡¥when light energy is emitted by a luminous body its mass must increase¡¦, which is a contradiction. The perpetual energy machine is not possible. The reason is that Einstein derived light energy-mass interconversion equation (L = mc2) under special conditions of variables only. Then E = mc2 was speculated from L= mc2, without any logic (by replacing light energy L by every energy E). There are many observations in existing physics which can be explained with help of E =Ac2m. The Big Bang theory of origin universe postulates the universe started its life from explosion of ¡¥a singular atom¡¦. Does E =Ac2m explain how ¡¥the singular atom¡¦ was created and exploded?

Beyond Newton and Archimedes.
  Sharma, Ajay/ 9781907343933/ Price:¢G 50.00
Taking into account the current experimental and technological accomplishments and theoretical methods, this book stresses the basic laws of science, i.e. Archimedes principle, Newtons' laws, need to be generalized.. Generalization of the laws and principle are inevitable. Newton did not discover the Second Law of Motion F = ma. This is is clear from the critical study of the Principia. The 2265 years old Archimedes principle has limitations that it does not take into account the shape of the body and the viscosity of the medium under consideration. The Archimedes principle predicts that the volume of the medium filling a floating balloon/vessel becomes indeterminate, i.e. 0/0.These are serious limitations of the principle. Archimedes principle is generalized (up thrust is proportional weight of fluid displaced), the generalized form takes all elusive factors in account. In the existing literature there is no quantitative theory which may explain the phenomena of rising, falling and floating bodies quantitatively. Such a theory is described in the book for first time. Further background of Newton's laws of motion is discussed since days of Aristotle (384-322BC), Philiponnus (490-570), Buridan (1300-1358) and Galileo (1564-1642). The First Law of Motion is applicable under ideal conditions when resistive forces are not present in the system of the body and the medium. The Second Law of Motion is just the mathematical form of Newton's First Law of Motion.

The Terra Incognita of Sampling: Grouping and Segregation.
  D.S. Dihalu/ 9781614990741/ Price:EUR 108.00
It is essential in manufacturing companies, including environmentally oriented organizations, that each individual product or test portion is well-defined for the sake of product wellness, general health and safety, and quality assurance. Therefore it is justified that a significant share of the total company budget is spent on quality management. Ideally, each product that is produced in a company is tested for correctness. But for mass-producing companies in the food and feed industry, as well as pharmaceutical companies, this is not a realistic goal, In order to still get an impression of product quality, a representative sample of the product is tested in a laboratory. The inevitable deviation between the sample and the true product properties is known as the sampling error.Sampling is a multi-disciplinary topic that has been the inspiration for many scientists who tried to construct formulas that predict the fundamental sampling error.
Definitive Refutations of the Einsteinian General Relativity.
  Evans, Myron W./ 9781907343087/ Price:¢G 22.00
This book is Special Issue Six of Journal of Foundations of Physics and Chemistry and collects fourteen recent papers which refute the Einsteinian general relativity (EGR) definitively. The refutations are so simple that the theory is obsolete. To deny this conclusion would be to deny algebra at its simplest level. These refutations emerged during the development of Einstein Cartan Evans (ECE) unified field theory, and as that development gathered pace, the refutations became simpler and clearer so that they became irrefutable to any rational individual.

VD03-49 Nanocrystals and Quantum Dots of Group IV Semiconductors.
  Torchynska, T. V./ 9781588831545/ Price:US$ 399.00
Nanocrystals and quantum dots are nanometer-scale semiconductor structures that represent one of the most intensively developing areas of modern semiconductor physics. The optical, magnetic, electronic, mechanical, and biochemical properties of materials are beginning to be modified using nano-scale structures. Novel physical phenomena in nano-scale structures have been revealed and are applied in lasers and optical amplifiers, light emitting diodes, photodiodes, memory devices, biological luminescence markers, etc. The application of quasi zero-dimensional quantum dots in electronics has led to novel semiconductor technology and device concepts as well as to essential improvement in device performances. These achievements and technological applications of modern electronics deal mainly with direct band gap semiconductors such as the materials found in the groups III-V (InAs, GaAs,) and II-VI (CdSe, ZnS). In the case of indirect band gap materials (Si, Ge, SiC) many fundamental facts and phenomena related to the nanocrystals and quantum dots are now at least qualitatively understood, but no comprehensive survey exists to guide newcomers to the field. This book tries to fill this gap. It focuses on the optical and electrical phenomena in nanocrystal structures of indirect band gap group IV materials (Si, Ge, SiC). This book is an attempt to review the modern existing information in published materials. In addition, it includes the scientific results obtained by the authors' team, related to the physics, technology, optical and electrical properties, and different applications of Si, Ge, and SiC nanocrystal and quantum dot structures. It may be incomplete as such a work in a rapidly progressing field necessarily will be.

SD03-412 The Future of Post-Human Acoustics: A Preface to a New Theory of Sound and Silence.
  Baofu, Peter/ 9781907343421/ Price:¢G 50.00
this book provides an alternative (better) way to understand the future of acoustics, especially in the dialectic context of sound and silence-while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other). In other words, this book offers a new theory (that is, the multilateral theory of acoustics) to go beyond the existing approaches in the literature on acoustics in an original way. If successful, this seminal project is to fundamentally change the way that we think about acoustics, from the combined perspectives of the mind, nature, society, and culture, with enormous implications for the human future and what the author originally called its "post-human" fate.

VD03-47 Handbook of Nanoindentation: with Biological Applications.
  Oyen, Michelle L./ 9789814241892/ Price:US$ 149.95
Nanoindentation is ideal for the characterization of inhomogeneous biological materials. However, the use of nanoindentation techniques in biological systems is associated with some distinctively different techniques and challenges. For example, engineering materials used in the microelectronics industry (e.g. ceramics and metals) for which the technique was developed, are relatively stiff and exhibit time-independent mechanical responses. Biological materials, on the other hand, exhibit time-dependent behavior, and can span a range of stiffness regimes from moduli of Pa to GPa ¡ª eight to nine orders of magnitude. As such, there are differences in the selection of instrumentation, tip geometry, and data analysis in comparison with the ¡°black box¡± nanoindentation techniques as sold by commercial manufacturers. The use of scanning probe equipment (atomic force miscroscopy) is also common for small-scale indentation of soft materials in biology. The book is broadly divided into two parts. The first part presents the ¡°basic science¡± of nanoindentation including the background of contact mechanics underlying indentation technique, and the instrumentation used to gather mechanical data. Both the mechanics background and the instrumentation overview provide perspectives that are optimized for biological applications, including discussions on hydrated materials and adaptations for low-stiffness materials. The second part of the book covers the applications of nanoindentation technique in biological materials.

SD03-395 Radiation and Particle Detectors.
  Bertolucci, S./ 9781607506300/ Price:EUR 105.00
High energy physics (HEP) has a crucial role in the context of fundamental physics. HEP experiments make use of a massive array of sophisticated detectors to analyze the particles produced in high-energy scattering events. This book contains the papers from the workshop 'Radiation and Particle Detectors', organized by the International School of Physics, and held in Varenna in July 2009. Its subject is the use of detectors for research in fundamental physics, astro-particle physics and applied physics. Subjects covered include the measurement of: the position and length of ionization trails, time of flight velocity, radius of curvature after bending the paths of charged particles with magnetic fields, coherent transition radiation, synchrotron radiation, electro-magnetic showers produced by calorimetric methods and nuclear cascades produced by hadrons in massive steel detectors using calorimetry. Detecting muons and the detection of Cherenkov radiation are also covered, as is the detection of neutrinos by steps in the decay schemes which are 'not there'. All these methods of detection are used in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The international community of physicists hopes that the LHC will help to answer many of the most fundamental questions in physics. This book will be of interest to all those concerned in this quest.

Physics with Many Positrons.
  Dupasquier, A./ 9781607506461/ Price:EUR 195.00
With the exception of positron emission tomography (PET), the field of low energy positron science produces relatively few academic articles each year compared to more accessible fields. Though much has been achieved since the publication of two related volumes earlier in this series: Positron Solid State Physics (1981) and Positron Spectroscopy of Solids (1993), only the first steps have been made towards ¡¥physics with many positrons¡¦ : physical situations where the interactions of positrons with positrons can be observed. This 2009 Enrico Fermi School aims to stimulate the field of positron research as a whole, and particularly those facilities which will make positrons more readily available, at higher intensities and spatial and temporal densities. The prospect of making a positronium Bose-Einstein condensate, observing stimulated annihilation or producing an annihilation gamma ray laser hold great appeal for many researchers working in the field. The book is in two parts. The first presents recent results and speculations regarding future experiments where positron-positron interaction is an essential factor, as well as experiments with single positrons which nevertheless require positron storage or intense primary sources. The second part focuses on the production of high positron fluxes and densities. The progress envisioned with positron traps is thoroughly discussed in the final chapters. It is hoped that this book will encourage a greater number of users, increase the volume of useful results and possibly lead to future breakthroughs which will both capture the imagination and elucidate the underlying nature of the physical world.

VD03-41 Applied Mathematical Methods in Theoretical Physics.
  Masujima, Michio/ 9783527409365/ Price:US$ 252.75
All there is to know about functional analysis, integral equations and calculus of variations in one handy volume, written for the specific needs of physicists and applied mathematicians. The new edition of this handbook starts with a short introduction to functional analysis, including a review of complex analysis, before continuing a systematic discussion of different types of integral equations. After a few remarks on the historical development, the second part provides an introduction to the calculus of variations and the relationship between integral equations and applications of the calculus of variations. It further covers applications of the calculus of variations developed in the second half of the 20th century in the fields of quantum mechanics, quantum statistical mechanics and quantum field theory. Throughout the book, the author presents a wealth of problems and examples often with a physical background. He provides outlines of the solutions for each problem, while detailed solutions are also given, supplementing the materials discussed in the main text. The problems can be solved by directly applying the method illustrated in the main text, and difficult problems are accompanied by a citation of the original references. Highly recommended as a textbook for senior undergraduates and first-year graduates in science and engineering, this is equally useful as a reference or self-study guide.

SD03-383 Quantum Coherence in Solid State Systems.
  Deveaud-Pledran, B./ 9781607500391/ Price:EUR 190.00
This volume gives an overview of the manifestations of quantum coherence in different solid state systems, including semiconductor confined systems, magnetic systems, crystals and superconductors. Besides being of paramount importance in fundamental physics, the study of quantum coherence furnishes the starting point for important applications like quantum computing or secure data transmission. The coherent effects discussed mainly involve elementary excitations in solids like polaritons, excitons, magnons, macroscopic quantities like superconductor currents and electron spins. Also, several new aspects of the physics of quasi-particles are understood and discussed in this context. Due to the variety of systems in which quantum coherence may be observed, solid state systems are the natural candidates for applications that rely on coherence, for example quantum computers. This volume is dedicated to the memory of Franco Bassani, the former President of the Societa` Italiana di Fisica, who passed away last fall.
SD03-383 Measurements of Neutrino Mass.
  Ferroni, F./ 9781607500384/ Price:EUR 180.00
This volume offers a valuable insight into various aspects of the ongoing work directed at measuring neutrino mass. It took twenty years to refute the assertions of Bethe and Peierls that neutrinos were not observable, but it has since been realised that much can be learnt from these particles. The moral is, as Fiorini argues here, that the study of neutrinos was and remains demanding but rewarding. Subjects addressed in this volume include: clarifying the meaning of the Klapdor-Kleingrothaus results, probing the Majorana nature of neutrinos, observing lepton number violating effects for the first time, studying the end point of the spectrum in the search for neutrino masses and speculating whether it is possible to measure neutrino masses in cosmology. Lectures are enriched with rich historical overviews and valuable introductory material. Attention is also given to theoretical topics such as the evolution of the concept of mass in particle physics, a status report on neutrino oscillations and current discussion on neutrino masses. The reader is further reminded that neutrino masses may also have some bearing on the very origin of the matter among us, and have many deep links with other important lines of current physics research.
SD03-383 Atom Optics and Space Physics.
  Arimondo, E./ 9781586039905/ Price:EUR 180.00
The goal of this volume is to discuss the rapidly moving field of atom optics and interferometry with all its intricate aspects ranging from fundamental physics to applications and the theory of relativity. The breathtaking success in manipulating atoms using lasers has encouraged these two so far disjunct communities to move closer together and begin collaborations. After an introduction to atom optics and Bose-Einstein condensation, the theoretical foundations of cold atom interferometers, their use to test gravity, and their implementation in laboratory measurements of the Earth rotation and of Newton's gravitational constant are discussed. Several papers discuss the characteristics of gyroscopes and interferometers as sensors for inertial forces, starting from gyroscopes based on light waves and comparing their sensitivity to those based on matter waves. The final topic is the variation of fundamental constants, a subject that during the last years has attracted a lot of attention from different communities of physics.
SD03-383 Essentials of Biophysics.
  Narayanan, P./ 9781848290341/ Price:¢G 40.00
Biophysics is the bridge between the physical and natural sciences. There is a direct correlation and equivalence between physical and medical/biological science. The aim of this book is to present all the topics that can be classified as essential to biophysics:- chemical bonding (quantum physics), cellular, molecular and membrane biophysics, biophysical chemistry of biomolecules, physiochemical techniques (spectroscopies, microscopies, NMR, X-Ray diffraction), bioenergetics, biomechanics, photo-chemo- and radiation biophysics, and bioinformatics. The contents are organised into 4 sections containing 18 sub-sections. An overview is given for each section that comprises several chapters with a common theme. Each chapter is summarised in advance with a handy synopsis to assist the reader's understanding. Further reading is suggested at the end of every chapter. And the appendices and glossary at the end of the book provide an easy access to the more technical concepts, phrases and terminology. "Essentials of Biophysics" can therefore by definition be used on a wide range of cross disciplinary science courses, and will also serve as a valuable reference work in physical and natural science libraries.
SD03-381 Quantum Mechanics.
  Pradhan, Trilochan/ 9781848290389/ Price:¢G 16.99
This book presents a novel treatment of some unusual topics of non-relativistic theory of quantum mechanics, not often covered in classic texts. Notable among these are the first quantized theory of photons and neutrons (most books give the second quantized theory); Bohr-Sommerfeld 'action' as differential operators with their eigenvalues n and l and their corresonding eigenfunctions; parabose and parafermi symmetries of identical particles; Dirac's initiation of Lagrangian formulation of quantum mechanics (also know as transformation theory) and its elaboration and completion by Feynman; topological phase of the wavefunction in Bohm-Aharonov, Aharonov-Casher and neutron interferometer experiments (examples of the Berry phase); and quantum beats such as Stark and exchange oscillations simlar to K0K0and neutrino oscillations in particle physics. The book is intended to broaden one's understanding of quantum mechanics. Graduate students of physics, as well as teachers, will find this fresh exposition of topics interesting.
SD03-381 Special Theory of Relativity.
  Ghatak, Ajoy/ 9781848290372/ Price:¢G 14.99
The Special Theory of Relativity (STR) is the physical theory of measurement in inertial frames of reference proposed by Albert Einstein. It is deemed special because the theory or principle of relativity is applied only to inertial frames. In this books, Prof Ghatak sets out and explains the basic physics behind Einstein's theory, and at the same time he gives the reader a concise, enthusiastic overview of Einstein's massive contribution to science and the knowledge of mankind. In 1999, Time Magazine names Albert Einstein as "The Person of the Century". This book tells us why. The introduction deals with a summary of Einstein's work, Chapter One discusses Tiem Dilation and Length Contraction, Chapter Two deals with Mass-energy Relationship and Lorentz Tansformations, and Chapters Three and Four reproduce two of his original ground breaking papers from 1905. "Special Theory of Relativity" can be read by physics and engineering undergraduates as a support text on their courses, but it is of equal interest to readers of general science and fans of Albert Einstein.

Classical Mechanics.
  Finn, John M./ 9780763779603/ Price:US$ 224.95
Classical Mechanics presents an updated treatment of the dynamics of particles and particle systems suitable for students preparing for advanced study of physics and closely related fields, such as astronomy and the applied engineering sciences. Compared to older books on this subject, the mathematical treatment has been updated for the study of more advanced topics in quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and nonlinear and orbital mechanics. The text begins with a review of the principles of classical Newtonian dynamics of particles and particle systems and proceeds to show how these principles are modified and extended by developments in the field. The text ends with the unification of space and time given by the Special Theory of Relativity. In addition, Hamiltonian dynamics and the concept of phase space are introduced early on. This allows integration of the concepts of chaos and other nonlinear effects into the main flow of the text. The role of symmetries and the underlying geometric structure of space-time is a key theme. In the latter chapters, the connection between classical and quantum mechanics is examined in some detail.

Holography and Speckle is intended to mark a new era in holography and speckle. A new generation of holographers and speckle users now appears ready to take these fields in new directions unanticipated even 5 years ago. The old familiar applications have now reached a level of maturity that makes them better suited for advanced development than for basic research. So what comes next? We have offered here a sampling of new directions with just enough tie-in to our past to put the new in perspective. This is not a book in which you will find reviews of past work by "the usual suspects", whose contributions, however important, those in the field already know well. Here you will find chapters from many whose work has never appeared in such a book and who are looking at these fields with new perspectives. Holography and speckle are being reborn or at least rethought, and you are invited to join us in seeing some of those new directions for the first time. This book contains 26 state-of-the-art review chapters written by leading experts from around the world.

SD03-363 Nuclear Structure Far from Stability: New Physics and New Technology.
  Covello, A./ 9781586038854/ Price:EUR 190.00
The aim of this publication is to give an account of recent advances and new perspectives in the study of nuclei far from stability both from the experimental and the theoretical points of view. Experimental studies of exotic nuclei are currently being performed in several laboratories and new facilities with high-intensity beams are either just completed, or approved and under construction or in their planning stages. The bulk of the contributions in this book is devoted to nuclear structure models and their derivation from the basic nucleon-nucleon interaction. Three models are extensively discussed: the shell model, the interacting boson model and the cluster model. In recent years, considerable advance has been made in ab initio theories of nuclei, especially of light nuclei. These are included as well, thus providing a comprehensive view of the present status of nuclear structure theory. Also discussed is the occurrence of dynamic symmetries and super-symmetries in nuclei - including the newly suggested ¡¥critica¡¦ symmetries which occur in transitional nuclei when the shape changes from spherical to deformed. Nuclei far from stability are of particular importance for astrophysics, especially for the r-process. Nuclear astrophysics was reviewed in detail, including a discussion of energy generation in stars and nucleo-synthesis of elements
SD03-363 Strangeness and Spin in Fundamental Physics.
  Anselmino, M./ 9781586038847/ Price:EUR 180.00
Strangeness and Spin in Fundamental Physics is dedicated to the discussion of the role played by two subtle and somehow puzzling quantum numbers, the strangeness and the spin, in fundamental physics. They both relate to basic properties of the fundamental quantum field theories describing strong and electro-weak interactions and to their phenomenological applications. In some instances, like the partonic spin structure of the proton, they are deeply correlated. The many puzzling results recently obtained by measuring several spin asymmetries have stimulated gigantic progresses in the study of the spin structure of protons and neutrons. Intense theoretical activity has discovered new features of non-perturbative QCD, like strong correlations between the spin and the intrinsic motions of quarks inside the nucleons. The purpose of this publication is that of providing a complete, updated and critical account of the most recent and relevant discoveries in the above fields, both from the experimental and theoretical sides.

SD03-359 High-Pressure Sulfidation of Hydrotreating Catalysts: Genesis and Properties of the Active Phase.
  Dugulan, A. I./ 9781586038632/ Price:EUR 50.00
The main objective of High-Pressure Sulfidation of Hydrotreating Catalysts is to understand the effect of the sulfidation pressure on the active phase structure in CoMo and NiW catalysts. The influence of the sulfidation pressure on the structure and activity of calcined CoMo/Al2O3 catalysts were examined through multiple experiments: to better understand the influence of calcinations conditions on the performance of CoMo/Al2O3 catalysts, a set of uncalcined catalysts with different Co/Mo ratios is investigated. Also the applicability of the Co-Mo-S structural model and the stability of the Co-containing phases for carbon-supported catalysts activated under high-pressure conditions were evaluated. Nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) and phosphorus containing CoMo catalysts are examined to better comprehend the influence of high-pressure sulfidation of CoMo/Al2O3 catalysts prepared via non-conventional routes. Furthermore, an attempt is made to understand the strongly varying DBT HDS activities among the various catalysts presented in earlier chapters. Also, it is described how the sulfidation of Al2O3- and amorphous-silica-alumina-supported NiW catalysts under conditions relevant to industrial practice using ^(1)??W Mo"ssbauer spectroscopy for the first time. Overall, two major factors influencing the HDS activities of CoMo hydrotreating catalysts are identified: the significant formation of CoSx structures in catalysts with weak metal-support interaction and the existence of a continuum of Type I/II Co-Mo-S structures, where the fully Type II end member is more difficult to reach than previously suspected.
SD03-359 Ultra-Cold Fermi Gases.
  Inguscio, M./ 9781586038465/ Price:EUR 230.00
The field of cold atomic gases faced a revolution in 1995 when Bose-Einstein condensation was achieved. Since then, there has been an impressive progress, both experimental and theoretical. The quest for ultra-cold Fermi gases started shortly after the 1995 discovery, and quantum degeneracy in a gas of fermionic atoms was obtained in 1999. The Pauli exclusion principle plays a crucial role in many aspects of ultracold Fermi gases, including inhibited interactions with applications to precision measurements, and strong correlations. The path towards strong interactions and pairing of fermions opened up with the discovery in 2003 that molecules formed by fermions near a Feshbach resonance were surprisingly stable against inelastic decay, but featured strong elastic interactions. This remarkable combination was explained by the Pauli exclusion principle and the fact that only inelastic collisions require three fermions to come close to each other. The unexpected stability of strongly interacting fermions and fermion pairs triggered most of the research which was presented at this summer school. It is remarkable foresight (or good luck) that the first steps to organize this summer school were already taken before this discovery. It speaks for the dynamics of the field, how dramatically it can change course when new insight is obtained.

SD03-351 Protein Folding and Drug Design.
  Broglia, R. A./ 9781586037925/ Price:EUR 160.00
One of the great unsolved problems of science and also physics is the prediction of the three dimensional structure of a protein from its amino acid sequence: the folding problem. It may be stated that the deep connection existing between physics and protein folding is not so much, or in any case not only, through physical methods (experimental: X¡Vrays, NMR, etc, or theoretical: statistical mechanics, spin glasses, etc), but through physical concepts. In fact, protein folding can be viewed as an emergent property not contained neither in the atoms forming the protein nor in the forces acting among them, in a similar way as superconductivity emerges as an unexpected coherent phenomenon taking place on a sea of electrons at low temperature. Already much is known about the protein folding problem, thanks, among other things, to protein engineering experiments as well as from a variety of theoretical inputs: inverse folding problem, funnel¡Vlike energy landscapes (Peter Wolynes), helix¡Vcoil transitions, etc. Although quite different in appearance, the fact that the variety of models can account for much of the experimental ?ndings is likely due to the fact that they contain much of the same (right) physics. A physics which is related to the important role played by selected highly conserved, ¡§hot¡¨, amino acids which participate to the stability of independent folding units which, upon docking, give rise to a (post¡Vcritical) folding nucleus lying beyond the highest maximum of the free energy associated to the process.
SD03-351 Metrology and Fundamental Constants.
  Haensch, T. W./ 9781586037840/ Price:EUR 195.00
This volume can be justified by the following three facts, the need to provide, from time to time, a co-ordinated set of lectures which present the relevant progress in Metrology, the increasing intertwining between Fundamental Physics and the practice of Metrological Measurements, and, third, the flurry of new and unexpected discoveries in this field, with a correlated series of Nobel Prizes bestowed to individuals working in Fundamental Constants research and novel experimental methods. One of the most fascinating and exciting characteristics of metrology is its intimate relationship between fundamental physics and the leading edge of technology which is needed to perform advanced and challenging experiments and measurements, as well as the determination of the values and interrelations between the Fundamental Constants. In some cases, such as the caesium fountains clocks or the optical frequency standards, the definition of the value of a quantity is, in the laboratory, in the region of 10-16 and experiments are under way to reach 10-18. Many of these results and the avenues leading to further advances are discussed in this volume, along a major step in metrology, expected in the near future, which could change the ¡§old¡¨ definition of the kilogram, still based on a mechanical artefact, toward a new definition resting on a fixed value of a fundamental constant.
SD03-344 Discotic Liquid Crystals: From Dynamics to Conductivity.
  Kruglova, Olga V./ 9781586037451/ Price:EUR 50.00
In this dissertation the dependency between structure and dynamics, and its influence on charge transfer properties of self-assembling discotic liquid crystalline materials, are studied in some detail. Dynamics was probed by quasielastic neutron scattering (protons) and PR-TRMC (charge carriers). Both techniques are complimentary since they give information about different parts of a single system and they should give the same qualitative result. This book starts with a brief overview of liquid crystals in general, and discotic liquid crystals in particular. Subsequently, a theory of neutron scattering is discussed in detail followed by description of the continuous time random walk model on which the fractional diffusion equation is built. Solution of that fractional diffusion equation represents van Hove correlation Function that is measured in neutron scattering experiment. The model for relaxation kinetics in a correlating environment parameterizes the van Hove correlation function and gives a more physical insight of the processes occurring in system. After a short description of the conduction process, the possible connection between molecular dynamics and charge carrier motion is examined.

SE19-330 Proteins at Surfaces.
  Efimova, Yulia/ 9781586036027/ Price:EUR 44.00
Understanding protein adsorption is of vital importance in many fields of medicine and industry that can be divided into two categories: those in which it is desired to minimize adsorption, and those in which protein adsorption is desired. The first category covers materials for kidney dialysis membranes, implants in the bloodstream, vessels for storing pharmaceutical products, marine antifouling paints, etc. The second covers mainly materials for surgical implants, for example, bone replacement, teeth implants, which must be assimilated with the living tissue. For example, bones or tooth implants require good protein adhesion to allow the growth of the bone and the formation of a stable and strong interphase between the implants and the bone. In contrast, the protein adhesion has to be poor for catheters or contact lenses, where a low contact with the tissue is required. In between these two categories lies a work to understand the fundamental processes of protein adsorption onto solid surfaces.

SD03-337 Methods for Solving Mathematical Physics Problems.
  Agoshkov, V. I./ 9781904602057/ Price:¢G 80.00
The aim of the book is to present to a wide range of readers (students, postgraduates, scientists, engineers, etc.) basic information on one of the directions of mathematics, methods for solving mathematical physics problems. The authors have tried to select for the book methods that have become classical and generally accepted. However, some of the current versions of these methods may be missing from the book because they require special knowledge. The book is of the handbook-teaching type. On the one hand, the book describes the main definitions, the concepts of the examined methods and approaches used in them, and also the results and claims obtained in every specific case. On the other hand, proofs of the majority of these results are not presented and they are given only in the simplest (methodological) cases. Another special feature of the book is the inclusion of many examples of application of the methods for solving specific mathematical physics problems of applied nature used in various areas of science and social activity, such as power engineering, environmental protection, hydrodynamics, elasticity theory, etc. This should provide additional information on possible applications of these methods. To provide complete information, the book includes a chapter dealing with the main problems of mathematical physics, together with the results obtained in functional analysis and boundary-value theory for equations with partial derivatives.

SD03-332 CP Violation: From Quarks to Leptons.
  Giorgi, M./ 9781586036287/ Price:EUR 209.00
For a long time after the discovery in 1964, by Christenson, Cronin, Fitch and Turlay, that the long-lived neutral kaon decays both into three and into two pions, which has since been taken as proof of CP violation, successive new and more precise experiments confirmed the original evidence and provided results compatible with a phenomenological description confining the CP violation to the mixing between neutral kaons and antikaons. However the Standard Model, with three generations of quarks, linking as it does CP violation to the presence of a single non trivial phase in the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa quark mixing matrix, implies that if CP violation exists at all, then it is a general property of weak interactions, appearing in transitions were amplitudes involving all three quark families interfere with each other, producing effects with a magnitude related to that of the CKM coefficients. This fact has stimulated an impressive amount of theoretical work leading in many cases to precise predictions. This publication reviews the field, from both the theoretical and experimental point of view, while planning for the forthcoming experimentation at LHC and considering possible newfacilities for kaon, B meson and neutrino physics.
SD03-330 Polarons in Bulk Materials and Systems with Reduced Dimensionality.
  Iadonisi, G./ 9781586036096/ Price:EUR 198.00
An enormous theoretical effort has been made to treat electron-phonon coupled systems, with particular emphasis on Many Body aspects for dense electron systems, taking into account continuum as well as lattice polaron effects. Treating such aspects of polaron theory has been made possible because of powerful Many Body techniques which include: Exact Diagonalization techniques, Quantum Monte Carlo approaches, Density Matrix renormalization group and Dynamical Mean Field Theory. All these advances in polaron theory needed to be accompanied by: (i) an equally important advance in material research which produced many new materials such as the high Tc cuprates, the manganites and nickelates and the fullerines; (ii) as well as significant advances in the refinement of experimental analysis and, in particular, the spectroscopic means such as Angel Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy, X Ray Absorption Spectroscopy (EXAFS, XANES), Pulsed Neutron Diffraction measurements allowing to study the local dynamical lattice de-formations and optical spectroscopy including time resolved measurements. The scope and purpose of this publication is to review both these theoretical and experimental advances which occurred over the last few decades and to introduce the study of such systems, where both strong electron-electron correlations and large electron-phonon coupling strengths play important roles.

SD03-321 The Quantum Challenge: Modern Research on the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics.
  Greenstein, George/ 9780763724702/ Price:US$ 255.95
The Quantum Challenge, Second Edition is an engaging and thorough treatment of the extraordinary phenomena of quantum mechanics, and of the enormous challenge they present to our conception of the physical world. Traditionally, the thrill of grappling with such issues is reserved for practicing scientists, while physical science, mathematics, and engineering students are often isolated from these inspiring questions. This book was written to remove this isolation. Greenstein and Zajonc present the puzzles of quantum mechanics using vivid references to contemporary experiments. The authors focus on the most striking and conceptually significant quantum phenomena, together with a clear theoretical treatment of each. The depth and extent of the challenge of quantum mechanics becomes increasingly compelling as they move from the simplest experiments involving single photons or particles, to the famous Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen and Bell's Theorem, and then to macroscopic quantum phenomena.
Quantum Computer, Algorithms and Chaos: Volume 162 International School of Physics Enrico Fermi.
  Casati, G./ 9781586036607/ Price:EUR 209.00
During the last ten years Quantum Information Processing and Communication (QIPC) has established itself as one of the new hot topic fields in physics, with the potential to revolutionize many areas of science and technology. QIPC replaces the laws of classical physics applied to computation and communication with the more fundamental laws of quantum mechanics. This becomes increasingly important due to technological progress going down to smaller and smaller scales where quantum effects start to be dominant. In addition to its fundamental nature, QIPC promises to advance computing power beyond the capabilities of any classical computer, to guarantee secure communication and establish direct links to emerging quantum technologies, such as, for example, quantum based sensors and clocks. One of the outstanding feature of QIPC is its interdisciplinary character: it brings together researchers from physics, mathematics and computer science. In particular, within physics we have seen the emergence of a new QIPC community, which ranges from theoretical to experimental physics, and crosses boundaries of traditionally separated disciplines such as atomic physics, quantum optics, statistical mechanics and solid state physics, all working on different and complementary aspects of QIPC. This publication covers the following topics: Introduction to quantum computing; Quantum logic, information and entanglement; Quantum algorithms; Error-correcting codes for quantum computations; Quantum measurements and control; Quantum communication; Quantum optics and cold atoms for quantum information; Quantum computing with solid state devices; Theory and experiments for superconducting qubits; Interactions in many-body systems: quantum chaos, disorder and random matrices; Decoherence effects for quantum computing; and Flature prospects of quantum information processing.
High-Performance Hybrid-Fibre Concrete: Development and Utilisation.
  Markovic, Ivan/ 9789040726217/ Price:EUR 46.00
In the research project presented in this book, an innovative type of fibre concrete is developed, which improved both the tensile strength and the ductility: the Hybrid-Fibre Concrete (HFC). The expression 'Hybrid' refers to the 'hybridisation' of fibres: short and long steel fibres were combined together in one concrete mixture. This is opposite to conventional steel fibre concretes, which contain only one type of fibre. The basic goal of combining short and long fibres is from one side to improve the tensile strength by the action of short fibres, and from the other side to improve the ductility by the action of long fibres. In this research project, all important aspects needed for the development and application of Hybrid-Fibre Concrete have been considered. In total 15 mixtures, with different types and amounts of steel fibres were developed and tested in the fresh state (workability) as well as in the hardened state (uniaxial tensile tests, flexural tests, pullout tests of single fibres and compressive tests). A new analytical model for bridging of cracks by fibres was developed and successfully implemented for tensile softening response of HFC. At the end, the utilisation of HFC in the engineering practice was discussed, including a case-study on light prestressed long-span beams made of HFC.
VD03-27 Electronic Excitations in Liquefied Rare Gases.
  Schmidt, Werner F./ 9781588830364/ Price:US$ 299.00
Electronic Excitations in Liquefied Rare Gases is a unique and only reference source that reviews the research and development of liquefied rare gases, which took place over a period of last 50 years. Liquefied rare gases are the simplest dielectric liquids, which are insulators from a physical point of view. While the gaseous and solid state of matter have received intensive attention from the beginning of modern science, the knowledge about liquids remained undocumented so far. Liquids exhibit local order as solids and long-range disorder as gases. Fundamental problems related to the generation, transport and recombination of charge carriers in liquefied rare gases could be studied under controlled conditions since liquid samples of extremely high purity can be prepared. Liquefied rare gases have found applications in physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, and materials science. In this volume, world-leading scientists have summarized the knowledge gained about electronic processes in these liquids. The topics are interesting for scientists working in fundamental research as well for those applying liquefied rare gases in experimental or technical devices. The book contains 15 review chapters on different aspects of liquefied rare gases. Such an in depth compilations of knowledge in this field has not been published as of today. The topics of this book concentrate on the processes of electronic excitation, which are of general fundamental interest and have found applications in detectors for high energy physics, light sources for the extreme ultraviolet, etc. just to name a few.
VD03-25 Nanoscale Calibration Standards and Methods.
  Wilkening, Gunter/ 9783527405022/ Price:US$ 309.00
The quantitative determination of the properties of micro- and nanostructures is essential in research and development. It is also a prerequisite in process control and quality assurance in industry. The knowledge of the geometrical dimensions of structures in most cases is the base, to which other physical and chemical properties are linked. Quantitative measurements require reliable and stable instruments, suitable measurement procedures as well as appropriate calibration artefacts and methods. The seminar "NanoScale 2004" (6th Seminar on Quantitative Microscopy and 2nd Seminar on Nanoscale Calibration Standards and Methods) at the National Metrology Institute (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt PTB), Braunschweig, Germany, continues the series of seminars on Quantitative Microscopy. The series stimulates the exchange of information between manufacturers of relevant hard- and software and the users in science and industry.

SD03-325 Physics before and after Einstein.
  Capria, M. M./ 9781586034627/ Price:EUR 132.00
It is now a century ago that one of the icons of modern physics published some of the most influential scientific papers of all times. With his work on relativity and quantum theory, Albert Einstein has altered the field of physics forever. It should not come as a surprise that looking back at Einstein's work, one needs to rethink the whole scope of physics, before and after his time. This books aims to provide a perspective on the history of modern physics, spanning from the late 19th century up to today. It is not an encyclopaedic work, but it presents the groundbreaking and sometimes provocative main contributions by Einstein as marking the line between ¡¥old¡¦ and ¡¥new¡¦ physics, and expands on some of the developments and open issues to which they gave rise. This presentation is not meant as a mere celebration of Einstein¡¦s work, but as a critical appraisal which provides accurate historical and conceptual information. The contributing authors all have a reputation for working on themes related to Einstein¡¦s work and its consequences. Therefore, the collection of papers gives a good representation of what happened in the 100 years after Einstein¡¦s landmark Annalen der Physik articles. All people interested in the field of physics, history of science and epistemology could benefit from this book. An effort has been made to make the book attractive not only to scientists, but also to people with a more basic knowledge of mathematics and physics.

SD03-322 From Nanostructures to Nanosensing Applications.
  D'Amico, A./ 9781586035273/ Price:EUR 165.00
Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies have grown increasingly fast for the last 20 years - after a somehow slow start - with an exceptional impact upon understanding of Nature, development of Science and related applications. Several new materials have been built and the possibility of tailoring their properties for particular purposes has opened unexpected perspectives in a multidisciplinary scenario. Furthermore, economy has also been deeply involved in this effort as a consequence of the fact that a significant amount of money has been invested in new enterprises with the hope of duplicating the "boom" of microelectronics: a wrong hope, according to our guess, since nanotechnologies probably will prove to be really crucial in niche production. Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies are developing at a very fast pace. It is then important to provide young and even expert scientists with the possibility of reviewing and updating some of the most significant features of nanostructures for a better understanding of their scientific foundations in order to put a firm basis for future developments. Nanostructures and Nanosensing Applications provide a very effective approach as they require a strict interaction between Science and Technology leading to a high degree of cross fertilization.

SD03-321 Hadron Physics.
  Bressani, T./ 9781586035266/ Price:EUR 214.00
This volume of the International School of Physics Enrico Fermi is dedicated to Valerio Filippini. He devoted his life to physics. Valerio Filippini was born in Somma Lombardo (Milano) on December 8, 1958. He obtained the Master Degree in Physics at the University of Pavia in 1982, cum laude. After a working parenthesis at an industrial firm, he became Research Physicist of INFN, Sezione di Pavia, in 1988 and was promoted Senior Research Physicist in 1993. He participated to the experiments PS 179 (TOFRADUPP) and PS 201 (Obelix) at LEAR (CERN), FINUDA at LNF and ATHENA at AD (CERN). His outstanding scientific contributions were provided in the OBELIX and FINUDA experiments. Nobody could compete with Filippini in exploiting at best the daily-evoluting performances of the computing tools for the needs of the experiments, both for on-line and off-line purposes. The FINUDA experiment collected physics data immediately after the roll-in thanks to the reliability and simplicity of the on-line system designed and assembled by the physicist. However, he was not only a ¡§Clavier Physicist¡¨ but a complete Scientist: he also leaded the Pavia Group in designing and providing advanced detectors, and in developing mathematical methods for the analysis of the data.

SD03-313 Electron Liquid Model in Condensed Matter Physics.
  / 9781586034467/ Price:EUR 187.00
The electron liquid paradigm is at the basis of most of our current understanding of the physical properties of electronic systems. Quite remarkably, the latter are nowadays at the intersection of the most exciting areas of science: materials science, quantum chemistry, nano-electronics, biology, and quantum computation. Accordingly, its importance can hardly be overestimated. During the past 20 years the field has witnessed momentous developments, which are partly covered in this new volume. Advances in semiconductor technology have allowed the realizations of ultra-pure electron liquids whose density, unlike that of the ones spontaneously occurring in nature, can be tuned by electrical means, allowing a systematic exploration of both strongly and weakly correlated regimes. Most of these system are two- or even one-dimensional, and can be coupled together in the form of multi-layers or multi-wires, opening vast observational possibilities. On the theoretical side, quantum Monte Carlo methods have allowed an essentially exact determination of the ground-state energy of the electron liquid, and have provided partial answers to the still open question of the structure of its phase diagram. Starting from the 1980s some truly revolutionary concepts have emerged, which are well represented in this volume.

The Influence of Anisotropy on the Consolidation Behaviour of Peat.
  Zwanenburg, C./ 9789040726156/ Price:EUR 42.45
When designing a foundation for an embankment its influence on its surroundings is often an important issue. In considering this influence a proper indication of horizontal deformations and horizontal stresses in the subsoil is needed. Many sediment deposits are deposited in horizontal strata, so it is to be expected that their mechanical properties in both horizontal directions might differ from their properties in vertical direction. Standard soil sampling produces mainly vertically retrieved samples. Therefore standard soil investigation gives parameters mainly valid for the vertical direction. In general practice it will take a great effort to retrieve horizontally drilled samples and this is rarely done. So although it is widely recognized that soft soil might show anisotropic behaviour information on parameters in horizontal direction is scarce. Soft soil is often described as an anisotropic heterogeneous material. Principally each soil property like permeability, stiffness or strength might show anisotropic behaviour. This thesis focuses on anisotropy in stiffness and the possibility to use conventional laboratory measurement techniques to determine the level of anisotropy in stiffness.
Improved Monte Carlo Methods with Application to Borehole Logging Simulations.
  Legrady, D./ 9789040726149/ Price:EUR 36.00
This thesis covers the development and assessment of the time dependent Monte Carlo Midway method for application to nuclear borehole logging with the primary aim of providing an acceleration tool for simulating responses on a detailed model parameter space. The basic concept of the Midway method is the estimation of the detector response at a surface bounding completely either the source or the detector. In a conventional Monte Carlo simulation, particles arriving at this surface would proceed, and depending on the probability of reaching the detector, possibly yield a score. This probability could be estimated by an adjoint calculation: a transport in reverse; by particles originating from the detector, flying backwards in space and time, while gaining instead of loosing energy at collisions. Scoring could be relocated then to this surface, and the response estimation would include a forward and an adjoint calculation. When this technique is applied to enhance the efficiency of the calculation, it forms the Midway method.
Gradient-based Approximate Design Optimization.
  Vervenne, K./ 9789040726088/ Price:EUR 41.00
The outline of the thesis is as follows. Chapter 2 discusses the use of Laplacian smoothing in order to improve the accuracy of semi-analytical sensitivities. Chapter 3 explains how these sensitivities can be used to construct response surfaces. Here, a two-step approach to construct the response surface will be presented. Construction of gradient-enhanced response surfaces can be considered as a multi-objective problem which will be shown in Chapter 4. The use of radial basis functions in order to construct response surfaces based on function values and gradients will be presented in Chapter 5. Chapter 6 focuses on efficiency improvement of response surface building using fast reanalysis methods. In Chapter 7 the optimization of composite laminates using a sequential approximate optimization of composite laminates using a sequential approximate optimization approach will be discussed. Finally, Chapter 8 contains a discussion and general conclusions. Chapter 2 to 6 are reproductions from papers presented at conferences and journal publications. References to these papers are given at the first page of the corresponding chapter. As a consequence of the fact that Chapters 2 to 6 are reproductions, some information in this thesis is superfluous. On the other hand, it enables selective reading of each of the chapters.
Spin-echo Small-Angle Neutron Scattering Applied to Colloidal Systems.
  Kruglov, T./ 9789040725937/ Price:EUR 37.00
A new technique has its value as long as it is known what it measures, not only how it measures. Paradoxically the actual development and application of Spin-echo Small-Angle Neutron Scattering (SESANS) started before its measured quantities were fully interpreted. This publication provides a manual on the methodology and interpretation of the SESANS measurements. Chapter ¡¥Theory¡¦ could also have been named ¡¥What SESANS actually measures¡¦. Chapter ¡¥Experiment¡¦ could have been named ¡¥What SESANS is actually able to measure¡¦. The subject of this book, both theoretical and experimental, is focused on isotropic particles (solid spheres, shells and gaussian coils) and structures formed by spherical particles.
Advanced Hot Rolling Strategies for IF and TRIP Steels.
  Elsner, A./ 9789040725913/ Price:EUR 44.00
Steel producers are forced to reduce the production cost on the one hand and increase the performances of the products on the other hand, to maintain or even increase their market share. A likely method to save on production costs is to cut down the rather long production chain for conventional cold rolled strip, and to substitute certain cold rolled steel grades by hot rolled steel. Certainly this can rarely be achieved for exposed parts, requiring a perfect surface finish, whereas for unexposed parts, e.g. structural components, with lower surface requirements, the use of hot strips might be a cost saving alternative. In chapter 1 the technological and qualitative requirements for a substitution of cold strip by hot strip are summarised. The aim of this thesis is to contribute to the understanding of the microstructure and texture development of deep-drawing steels during ferritic rolling, subsequent cold rolling and annealing on the one hand and to appraise the possible improvement of the mechanical and deep-drawing properties on the other hand. On the basis of these results guidelines for the industrial production of ferritic rolled hot strip should be formulated.
Stress Analysis of Fatigue Cracks in Mechanically Fastened Joints.
  De Rijck, R./ 9789040725906/ Price:EUR 60.00
The Fuselage structure is a rather complicated system of parts consisting of skinsheets, tear-straps, stringers, frames and doublers. These parts are interconnected by mechanically fastened and bonded joints, or a combination of both. The complex fuselage structure in the present research is reduced to specimen level size for laboratory testing and theoretical analysis. This thesis contains several topics all related to the mechanically fastened joints in monolithic aluminum and fiber metal laminates fuselage sections. An extension of the neutral line model is presented to calculate combined tension and bending stress distribution in joints. These stress calculations allow for an estimation of the stress at the most critical fastener row likely to develop fatigue cracks. To complement earlier research on developing stress intensity factors for cracks emanating from fastener holes, an experimental and analytical investigation in the crack growth behaviour of cracks emanating from countersunk holes is conducted. For riveted joints, the final shape of the formed rivet head indicates the squeeze force used to form the rivet. This squeeze force is also an indicator of the joint quality. Additional research to demonstrate the residual strength of joints with fatigue cracks is presented.
Solidification: Real-Time Investigation of Grain Nucleation and Growth During Liquid to Solid Phase Transformation of Aluminum Alloys.
  Iqbal, N./ 9789040725890/ Price:EUR 44.00
In pure aluminum the nucleation of a new solid phase during the liquid-to?solid phase transformation is activated by a relatively large undercooling of the melt with respect to the transformation temperature. The requirement of this undercooling to activate nucleation manifests itself in a large gram size and an inhomogeneous gram morphology, in the solidified material. However, when a solid surface compatible with the lattice of the forming nucleus is present in the melt, less undercooling is needed to activate nucleation. Therefore generally a small fraction of microscopic TiB2 particles (grain refiners) are added to aluminum alloys before solidification. It appears that without the addition of a small amount of extra solute titanium in the melt, the surface of these particles does not work as an effective nucleation site. Even then, only about 1 % of the particles added to the melt nucleate grains during solidification. The remainder are of no inherent value to the final product. Contrary to that, agglomeration of these particles, can results in casting defects in the solidified material. This study provides a new insight into the nature of gram nucleation and growth during solidification of gram refined aluminum alloys and relate the microstructural features to the gram refiner efficiency.
Design and Analysis Methodologies for Inflated Beams.
  Veldman, S. L./ 9789040725869/ Price:EUR 38.00
Inflated beams are part of the inflatable structures family. These structures are characterised by being made from a relatively thin skin which, unless pre-stressed, has very little capacity to bear compressive loads. In order to provide some more general knowledge of this family of structures, an overview is given of the various applications and related technologies. In aeronautical engineering inflatable structures can be found in applications such as airships and inflatable wings. Equipping unmanned small aircraft with inflatable wings may reduce the weight and may be beneficial over rigid systems in term of energy consumption during wing deployment. A number of research projects have been undertaken since the mid nineteen-eighties in relation to using inflatable technology in space. Some of these projects have resulted in actual flight experiments. Typical research areas are: wrinkling behaviour; static and dynamic mechanical behaviour; surface accuracy; and deployment modelling and control. The analysis of inflated beams as is the topic of this thesis focuses on static mechanical behaviour and optimisation for minimum deflection using the same volume of material.
Condition Monitoring for Marine Refrigeration Plants: Based on Process Models.
  Grimmelius, Hugo/ 9789040725623/ Price:EUR 60.00
Over the last decades the reliability, availability and safety of plants has become increasingly important for a number of reasons. One of the reasons is the increasing size and complexity of the plants, both onshore and offshore. The cost and safety risks have increased with the size, and the complexity has led to extensive automation. The human operator is not able to control the entire plant, nor able to assess its running condition, without the aid of this automation. However, the amount of data available to the operators is enormous. Many parameters, variables and alarms are available simultaneously for evaluation. Hence the need for automated evaluation of the data, or enhanced condition monitoring (sometimes incorrectly referred to as 'intelligent' condition monitoring). In 1992 the ICMOS (Intelligent Condition Monitoring Systems) research project was well underway for diesel engines used for propulsion and power generation onboard ships. Trying to extend this research and find other application for the results and experience led to research on condition monitoring for compression refrigeration plant, as these plants are often used and also often not well understood by the marine engineer. The initial, and necessarily very general, research assignment for this project was to generate knowledge required for the condition monitoring and fault diagnosis of compression refrigeration systems on board ships.

SD03-322 Discovering the Nanoscale.
  Baird, Davis/ 9781586034672/ Price:EUR 132.00
Science and engineering, industry and politics, environmentalists and transhumanists are Discovering the Nanoscale. Policy makers are demanding explicit consideration of ethical, legal, and social aspects, and popular books are explaining the achievements and promises of nanoscience. It may therefore seem surprising that this is the first collection of studies that considers nanoscience and nanotechnologies from the critical perspective of Science and Technology Studies (STS). However, when one appreciates that such a critical perspective needs to be historically informed it often involves intimate acquaintance with the research process. Accordingly, this book on the historical, analytical, and ethical study of nanoscience and -technology has come together in a period of several years. Though it presents only first results, these results for the most part stem from sustained investigations of nanoscience and nanotechnologies and of the contexts that are shaping their development. Nanoscience and technologies are developing very quickly, and for this reason both pose a challenge to the more reflective approach commonly taken by science studies, while at the same time requiring the perspective provided by science studies scholars. Many are convinced that nothing meaningful can be said about the social and ethical implications of nanotechnologies at this early stage, but one can already see what programmatic attitudes go into nanoscale research, what metaphors are shaping it, and what conception of nature is implicit in its vision. It is also often assumed that in order to consider all aspects of nanotechnologies it is sufficient to know a bit of the science and to have some ethical intuitions. This collection of papers establishes that one also needs to appreciate nanoscale research and development in the larger context of the changing relations of science, technology, and society.
SD03-317 The Physics of Complex Systems.
  Mallamace, F./ 9781586034450/ Price:EUR 198.00
It is widely known that complex systems and complex materials comprise a major interdisciplinary scientific field that draws on mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, and medicine as well as such social sciences as economics. The role of statistical physics in this new field has been expanding. Statistical physics has shown how phenomena and processes in different research areas that have long been assumed to be unrelated can have a common description. Through the application of statistical physics, methods developed for studying order phenomena in simple systems and processes have been generalized to more complex systems. The two conceptual pillars in this approach are scaling and universality. This volume focuses on recent advances and perspectives in the physics of complex systems and provides both an overview of the field and a more detailed examination of the new ideas and unsolved problems that are currently attracting the attention of researchers. This book should be a useful reference work for anyone interested in this area, whether beginning graduate student or advanced research professional. It provides up-to-date reviews on cutting-edge topics compiled by leading authorities and is designed to both broaden the reader¡¦s competence within their own field and encourage the exploration of new problems in related fields.
SD03-314 Physics Methods in Archaeometry.
  Cliv, Course/ 9781586034245/ Price:EUR 187.00
The role of exact sciences in connection with cultural heritage now is well established and a new scientific branch has been generated: Archaeometry. Literally, Archaeometry means measurement on ancient objects. It is a multidisciplinary field of investigations where the rigorous methods of exact sciences give a fundamental contribution to solving the problems associated with conservation and restoration, as well as to the study itself of the cultural heritage. Archaeometry, as a scientific research field, involves interdisciplinary groups formed by scholars of the humanistic area together with scientists: physicists, chemists, mathematicians, biologists, engineers, etc. The primary justification for the need of involving exact sciences in the field which, in the past, traditionally has been exclusive of Art Historians must no doubt be found in the conservation and restoration activities. The second argument which, in the public opinion, justifies the involvement of science with the world of Art is the confidence that scientific methods are infallible in unmasking forgeries. But in our opinion the awareness of the central role of scientific methods as a support for philological and historical investigations is still very little diffuse or, at least, finds it hard to become widespread. Perhaps also because of our mentality, Physics, compared to chemistry, is more apt to find applications in a context free from authentication or conservation implications.
