A modern, graduate-level introduction to many-body physics in condensed matter, this textbook explains the tools and concepts needed for a research-level understanding of the correlated behavior of quantum fluids. Starting with an operator-based introduction to the quantum field theory of many-body physics, this textbook presents the Feynman diagram approach, Green's functions and finite-temperature many body physics before developing the path integral approach to interacting systems. Special chapters are devoted to the concepts of Fermi liquid theory, broken symmetry, conduction in disordered systems, superconductivity and the physics of local-moment metals. A strong emphasis on concepts and numerous exercises make this an invaluable course book for graduate students in condensed matter physics. It will also interest students in nuclear, atomic and particle physics.

Linked: How Everything Is Connected to Everything Else and What It Means for Business, Science, and Everyday Life Lowest new price: $6.00
Lowest used price: $6.00
List price: $17.99
Author: Albert-laszlo Barabasi

The best-selling guide to network science, the revolutionary field that reveals the deep links between all forms of human social life

A cocktail party. A terrorist cell. Ancient bacteria. An international conglomerate. All are networks, and all are a part of a surprising scientific revolution. In Linked, Albert-László Barabási, the nation's foremost expert in the new science of networks, takes us on an intellectual adventure to prove that social networks, corporations, and living organisms are more similar than previously thought. Barabási shows that grasping a full understanding of network science will someday allow us to design blue-chip businesses, stop the outbreak of deadly diseases, and influence the exchange of ideas and information. Just as James Gleick and the Erdos-Rényi model brought the discovery of chaos theory to the general public, Linked tells the story of the true science of the future and of experiments in statistical mechanics on the internet, all vital parts of what would eventually be called the Barabási-Albert model.

How is the human brain like the AIDS epidemic? Ask physicist Albert-László Barabási and he'll explain them both in terms of networks of individual nodes connected via complex but understandable relationships. Linked: The New Science of Networks is his bright, accessible guide to the fundamentals underlying neurology, epidemiology, Internet traffic, and many other fields united by complexity.

Barabási's gift for concrete, nonmathematical explanations and penchant for eccentric humor would make the book thoroughly enjoyable even if the content weren't engaging. But the results of Barabási's research into the behavior of networks are deeply compelling. Not all networks are created equal, he says, and he shows how even fairly robust systems like the Internet could be crippled by taking out a few super-connected nodes, or hubs. His mathematical descriptions of this behavior are helping doctors, programmers, and security professionals design systems better suited to their needs. Linked presents the next step in complexity theory--from understanding chaos to practical applications. --Rob Lightner

Statistical Mechanics of Phase Transitions (Oxford Science Publications)

Statistical Mechanics of Phase Transitions (Oxford Science Publications) Lowest new price: $41.95
Lowest used price: $38.22
List price: $53.00
Author: J. M. Yeomans
Brand: J M Yeomans

Recent developments have led to a good understanding of universality: why phase transitions in systems as diverse as magnets, fluids, liquid crystals, and superconductors can be brought under the same theoretical umbrella and accurately described by simple models. This book describes the physics underlying universality and then lays out the theoretical approaches now available for studying phase transitions. Traditional techniques, mean-field theory, series expansions, and the transfer matrix, are described; the Monte Carlo method is covered; and two chapters are devoted to the renormalization group which led to a breakthrough in the field. The book will be useful as a textbook for a course in phase transitions, as an introduction for graduate students undertaking research in related fields, and as an overview for scientists in other disciplines who work with phase transitions but who are not aware of the current tools of theoretical physics.

Springer Handbook of Metrology and Testing (Springer Handbooks) Lowest new price: $330.00
Lowest used price: $338.57
List price: $399.99

This Springer Handbook of Metrology and Testing presents the principles of Metrology – the science of measurement – and the methods and techniques of Testing – determining the characteristics of a given product – as they apply to chemical and microstructural analysis, and to the measurement and testing of materials properties and performance, including modelling and simulation.

The principal motivation for this Handbook stems from the increasing demands of technology for measurement results that can be used globally. Measurements within a local laboratory or manufacturing facility must be able to be reproduced accurately anywhere in the world.

The book integrates knowledge from basic sciences and engineering disciplines, compiled by experts from internationally known metrology and testing institutions, and academe, as well as from industry, and conformity-assessment and accreditation bodies.

The Commission of the European Union has expressed this as there is no science without measurements, no quality without testing, and no global markets without standards.

Complex Plasmas and Colloidal Dispersions: Particle-resolved Studies of Classical Liquids and Solids (Series in Soft Condensed Matter)

Complex Plasmas and Colloidal Dispersions: Particle-resolved Studies of Classical Liquids and Solids (Series in Soft Condensed Matter) Lowest new price: $34.82
Lowest used price: $27.10
List price: $88.00
Author: Alexei Ivlev
Brand: Alexei Ivlev

Complex plasmas and colloidal dispersions represent different states of soft matter. They are complementary in many ways, with the most important being that complex plasmas are virtually undamped at the particle timescales, whereas colloidal dispersions are overdamped and therefore can be brought into equilibrium in a very controlled manner. Otherwise, both fields have similar advantages: fully resolved 3D particle trajectories can easily be visualized, the pair interactions are tunable, and particles can be manipulated individually or collectively. These unique properties allow us to investigate generic processes occurring in liquids or solids at the most fundamental individual particle level. The principal research topics to be addressed in the book include: (1) particle dynamics in liquids, with the emphasis on mesoscopic processes in the supercooled (glassy) state, e.g. dynamical heterogeneity, (2) phase transitions in solids, with particular attention to the evolutionary paths of crystal structure development and defect dynamics, (3) non-equilibrium phase transitions, with the focus on lane formation in driven binary systems and the dynamics at “atomistic” timescales, (4) phase separation in binary fluids, with the emphasis on the role of pair interactions in the demixing kinetics, (5) hydrodynamics at the discreteness limit, especially the onset and development of hydrodynamic instabilities at the particle scale, and many others.

Sales of U.S. chemical sensors represent the largest segment of the multi-billion-dollar global sensor market, which includes instruments for chemical detection in gases and liquids, biosensors, and medical sensors. Although silicon-based devices have dominated the field, they are limited by their general inability to operate in harsh environments faced with factors such as high temperature and pressure.

Exploring how and why these instruments have become a major player, Semiconductor Device-Based Sensors for Gas, Chemical, and Biomedical Applications presents the latest research, including original theoretical and experimental work. It also explains how these investigations have translated into applications and products.

Written by experts in the field, the chapters review cutting-edge progress on semiconductor and nanomaterial-based sensors. An excellent introduction to the subject, this book is also an outstanding reference for those working on different sensor applications. It addresses various subfields, including:

  • GaN-based sensor arrays for quick and reliable medical testing
  • Optical sensors
  • Wireless remote hydrogen sensing systems
  • MOS-based, thin-film, and nanowire-based sensors

The wide-bandgap semiconductor sensors discussed in this book offer many advantages as replacements for silicon-based sensors, including their high chemical resistance, high-temperature operation, and blue and ultraviolet optoelectronic behaviors. Although assays exist for biomedical detection, they are limited by various factors. Nanomaterial devices, such as the sensors examined in this book, are currently the best option for moving toward fast, label-free, sensitive, and selective multiple-detection systems for biological and medical sensing applications. Providing sufficient background information and technical detail, this is an excellent resource for advanced level undergraduate and graduate students as well as researchers in gas, chemical, biological, and medical sensors.
