Handbook of Nanophysics: Nanotubes and Nanowires (Volume 6) Lowest new price: $44.94
Lowest used price: $44.94
List price: $175.00
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

Intensive research on fullerenes, nanoparticles, and quantum dots in the 1990s led to interest in nanotubes and nanowires in subsequent years. Handbook of Nanophysics: Nanotubes and Nanowires focuses on the fundamental physics and latest applications of these important nanoscale materials and structures. Each peer-reviewed chapter contains a broad-based introduction and enhances understanding of the state-of-the-art scientific content through fundamental equations and illustrations, some in color.

This volume first covers key aspects of carbon nanotubes, including quantum and electron transport, isotope engineering, and fluid flow, before exploring inorganic nanotubes, such as spinel oxide nanotubes, magnetic nanotubes, and self-assembled peptide nanostructures. It then focuses on germanium, gallium nitride, gold, polymer, and organic nanowires and their properties. The book also discusses nanowire arrays, nanorods, atomic wires, monatomic chains, ultrathin gold nanowires, and several nanorings, including superconducting, ferromagnetic, and quantum dot nanorings.

Nanophysics brings together multiple disciplines to determine the structural, electronic, optical, and thermal behavior of nanomaterials; electrical and thermal conductivity; the forces between nanoscale objects; and the transition between classical and quantum behavior. Facilitating communication across many disciplines, this landmark publication encourages scientists with disparate interests to collaborate on interdisciplinary projects and incorporate the theory and methodology of other areas into their work.

Author: David Sholl

Demonstrates how anyone in math, science, and engineering canmaster DFT calculations

Density functional theory (DFT) is one of the most frequentlyused computational tools for studying and predicting the propertiesof isolated molecules, bulk solids, and material interfaces,including surfaces. Although the theoretical underpinnings of DFTare quite complicated, this book demonstrates that the basicconcepts underlying the calculations are simple enough to beunderstood by anyone with a background in chemistry, physics,engineering, or mathematics. The authors show how the widespreadavailability of powerful DFT codes makes it possible for studentsand researchers to apply this important computational technique toa broad range of fundamental and applied problems.

Density Functional Theory: A Practical Introductionoffers a concise, easy-to-follow introduction to the key conceptsand practical applications of DFT, focusing on plane-wave DFT. Theauthors have many years of experience introducing DFT to studentsfrom a variety of backgrounds. The book therefore offers severalfeatures that have proven to be helpful in enabling students tomaster the subject, including:

  • Problem sets in each chapter that give readers the opportunityto test their knowledge by performing their own calculations

  • Worked examples that demonstrate how DFT calculations are usedto solve real-world problems

  • Further readings listed in each chapter enabling readers toinvestigate specific topics in greater depth

This text is written at a level suitable for individuals from avariety of scientific, mathematical, and engineering backgrounds.No previous experience working with DFT calculations is needed.

The field of non-crystalline materials has seen the emergence of many challeng­ ing problems during its long history. In recent years, the interest in polymeric and biological disordered matter has stimulated new activities which in turn have enlarged the organic and inorganic glass community. The current research fields and recent progress have extended our knowledge of the rich phenomenol­ ogy of glassy systems, where the role of disorder is fundamental for the underlying microscopic dynamics. In addition, despite the lack of a unified theory, many interesting theoretical models have recently evolved. The present volume offers the reader a collection of topics representing the current state in the understanding of disorder effects as well as a survey of the basic problems and phenomena involved. The task of compiling a book devoted to disordered systems has benefited much from a seminar organized by the W.-E. Heraeus Foundation in Bad Honnef in April 1992, where we had the opportunity to discuss the project with most of the authors. Here we wish to thank the Heraeus Foundation for their support, and the authors and Springer-Verlag, especially Dr. Marion Hertel, for the pleasant cooperation.

Polymer Physics (Chemistry)

Polymer Physics (Chemistry) Lowest new price: $76.95
Lowest used price: $74.95
List price: $89.95
Author: M. Rubinstein
Brand: Oxford University Press USA

Polymer Physics thoroughly details the fundamental concepts of polymer melts, solutions, and gels in terms of both static structure and dynamics. It goes beyond other introductory polymer texts, deriving the essential tools of the physical polymer chemist or engineer without skipping any steps.

The book is divided into four parts. Part One summarizes the necessary concepts of a first course on polymers and covers the conformations of single polymer chains. Part Two deals with the thermodynamics of polymer solutions and melts, including chain conformations in those states. Part Three applies the concepts of Part Two to the formation and properties of polymer networks. Part Four explains the essential aspects of how polymers move in both melt and solution states.

The text assumes a working knowledge of calculus, physics, and chemistry, but no prior knowledge of polymers. It is ideal for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in Condensed Matter Physics, Soft Materials, and Polymers.


·Presents established results in an easily accessible way

·Emphasizes physical insight rather than mathematical rigor

·Provides detailed experimental sections at the end of each chapter

·Includes more than 200 illustrations and 350 exercises

Particles and Quantum Fields Lowest new price: $55.12
Lowest used price: $48.30
List price: $60.00
Author: Hagen Kleinert
Brand: Ingramcontent

This is an introductory book on elementary particles and their interactions. It starts out with many-body Schrödinger theory and second quantization and leads, via its generalization, to relativistic fields of various spins and to gravity. The text begins with the best known quantum field theory so far, the quantum electrodynamics of photon and electrons (QED). It continues by developing the theory of strong interactions between the elementary constituents of matter (quarks). This is possible due to the property called asymptotic freedom. On the way one has to tackle the problem of removing various infinities by renormalization. The divergent sums of infinitely many diagrams are performed with the renormalization group or by variational perturbation theory (VPT). The latter is an outcome of the Feynman-Kleinert variational approach to path integrals discussed in two earlier books of the author, one representing a comprehensive treatise on path integrals, the other dealing with critial phenomena. Unlike ordinary perturbation theory, VPT produces uniformly convergent series which are valid from weak to strong couplings, where they describe critical phenomena.The present book develops the theory of effective actions which allow to treat quantum phenomena with classical formalism. For example, it derives the observed anomalous power laws of strongly interacting theories from an extremum of the action. Their fluctuations are not based on Gaussian distributions, as in the perturbative treatment of quantum field theories, or in asymptotically-free theories, but on deviations from the average which are much larger and which obey power-like distributions.Exactly solvable models are discussed and their physical properties are compared with those derived from general methods. In the last chapter we discuss the problem of quantizing the classical theory of gravity.
