Cellular Solids: Structure and Properties (Cambridge Solid State Science Series)
Lowest new price: $85.57
Lowest used price: $75.04
List price: $105.00
Author: Lorna J. Gibson

Cellular solids include engineering honeycombs and foams (which can now be made from polymers, metals, ceramics, and composites) as well as natural materials, such as wood, cork, and cancellous bone. This new edition of a classic work details current understanding of the structure and mechanical behavior of cellular materials, and the ways in which they can be exploited in engineering design. Gibson and Ashby have brought the book completely up to date, including new work on processing of metallic and ceramic foams and on the mechanical, electrical and acoustic properties of cellular solids. Data for commercially available foams are presented on material property charts; two new case studies show how the charts are used for selection of foams in engineering design. Over 150 references appearing in the literature since the publication of the first edition are cited. It will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in materials science and engineering.

Lowest used price: $43.61
List price: $46.00
Author: Stefano Profumo
Brand: World Scientific Publishing UK

What is the dark matter that fills the Universe and binds together galaxies? How was it produced? What are its interactions and particle properties? The paradigm of dark matter is one of the key developments at the interface of cosmology and elementary particle physics. It is also one of the foundations of the standard cosmological model. This book presents the state of the art in building and testing particle models for dark matter. Each chapter gives an analysis of questions, research directions, and methods within the field. More than 200 problems are included to challenge and stimulate the reader's knowledge and provide guidance in the practical implementation of the numerous "tools of the trade" presented. Appendices summarize the basics of cosmology and particle physics needed for any quantitative understanding of particle models for dark matter. This interdisciplinary textbook is essential reading for anyone interested in the microscopic nature of dark matter as it manifests itself in particle physics experiments, cosmological observations, and highenergy astrophysical phenomena: from graduate students and advanced undergraduates to cosmologists and astrophysicists interested in particle models for dark matter and particle physicists interested in earlyuniverse cosmology and highenergy astrophysics.

Wave Motion in Elastic Solids (Dover Books on Physics)
Lowest new price: $16.56
Lowest used price: $6.75
List price: $27.95
Author: Karl F. Graff

This highly useful textbook presents comprehensive intermediatelevel coverage of nearly all major topics of elastic wave propagation in solids. The subjects range from the elementary theory of waves and vibrations in strings to the threedimensional theory of waves in thick plates. The book is designed not only for a wide audience of engineering students, but also as a general reference for workers in vibrations and acoustics. Chapters 1–4 cover wave motion in the simple structural shapes, namely strings, longitudinal rod motion, beams and membranes, plates and (cylindrical) shells. Chapters 5–8 deal with wave propagation as governed by the threedimensional equations of elasticity and cover waves in infinite media, waves in halfspace, scattering and diffraction, and waves in thick rods, plates, and shells. To make the book as selfcontained as possible, three appendices offer introductory material on elasticity equations, integral transforms and experimental methods in stress waves. In addition, the author has presented fairly complete development of a number of topics in the mechanics and mathematics of the subject, such as simple transform solutions, orthogonality conditions, approximate theories of plates and asymptotic methods. Throughout, emphasis has been placed on showing results, drawn from both theoretical and experimental studies, as well as theoretical development of the subject. Moreover, there are over 100 problems distributed throughout the text to help students grasp the material. The result is an excellent resource for both undergraduate and graduate courses and an authoritative reference and review for research workers and professionals.

A Guide to Feynman Diagrams in the ManyBody Problem: Second Edition (Dover Books on Physics)
Lowest new price: $13.82
Lowest used price: $4.85
List price: $22.95
Author: Richard D. Mattuck

"A great delight to read." — Physics Today Among the most fertile areas of modern physics, manybody theory has produced a wealth of fundamental results in all areas of the discipline. Unfortunately the subject is notoriously difficult and, until the publication of this book, most treatments of the topic were inaccessible to the average experimenter or nonspecialist theoretician. The present work, by contrast, is well within the grasp of the nonexpert. It is intended primarily as a "selfstudy" book that introduces one aspect of manybody theory, i.e. the method of Feynman diagrams. The book also lends itself to use as a reference in courses on solid state and nuclear physics which make some use of the manybody techniques. And, finally, it can be used as a supplementary reference in a manybody course. Chapters 1 through 6 provide an introduction to the major concepts of the field, among them Feynman diagrams, quasiparticles and vacuum amplitudes. Chapters 7 through 16 give basic coverage to topics ranging from Dyson's equation and the ladder approximation to Fermi systems at finite temperature and superconductivity. Appendixes summarize the Dirac formalism and include a rigorous derivation of the rules for diagrams. Problems are provided at the end of each chapter and solutions are given at the back of the book. For this second edition, Dr. Mattuck, formerly of the H. C. Orsted Institute and the University of Copenhagen, added to many chapters a new section showing in mathematical detail how typical manybody calculations with Feynman diagrams are carried out. In addition, new exercises were included, some of which gave the reader the opportunity to carry out simpler manybody calculations himself. new chapter on the quantum field theory of phase transitions rounds out this unusually clear, helpful and informative guide to the physics of the manybody problem.

ManyBody Quantum Theory in Condensed Matter Physics: An Introduction (Oxford Graduate Texts)
Lowest new price: $75.40
Lowest used price: $65.00
List price: $115.00
Author: Henrik Bruus

This book is an introduction to the techniques of manybody quantum theory with a large number of applications to condensed matter physics. The basic idea of the book is to provide a selfcontained formulation of the theoretical framework without losing mathematical rigor, while at the same time providing physical motivation and examples. The examples are taken from applications in electron systems and transport theory. On the formal side, the book covers an introduction to second quantization, manybody Green's function, finite temperature Feynman diagrams and bosonization. The applications include traditional transport theory in bulk as well as mesoscopic systems, where both the LandauBüttiker formalism and recent developments in correlated transport phenomena in mesoscopic systems and nanostructures are covered. Other topics include interacting electron gases, plasmons, electronphonon interactions, superconductivity and a final chapter on onedimensional systems where a detailed treatment of Luttinger liquid theory and bosonization techniques is given. Having grown out of a set of lecture notes, and containing many pedagogical exercises, this book is designed as a textbook for an advanced undergraduate or graduate course, and is also well suited for selfstudy.

Lowest used price: $36.99
List price: $55.00
Author: Mark Fox
Brand: imusti

The second edition of this successful textbook provides an uptodate account of the optical physics of solid state materials. The basic principles of absorption, reflection, luminescence, and light scattering are covered for a wide range of materials, including insulators, semiconductors and metals. The text starts with a review of classical optics, and then moves on to the treatment of optical transition rates by quantum theory. In addition to the traditional discussion of crystalline materials, glasses and molecular solids are also covered. The first edition included a number of subjects that are not normally covered in standard texts, notably semiconductor quantum wells, molecular materials, vibronic solid state lasers, and nonlinear optics. The basic structure of the second edition is unchanged, but all of the chapters have been updated and improved. Futhermore, a number of important new topics have been added, including: DT Optical control of spin DT Quantum dots DT Plasmonics DT Negative refraction DT Carbon nanostructures (graphene, nanotubes and fullerenes) DT NV centres in diamond The text is aimed at final year undergraduates, masters students and researchers. It is mainly written for physicists, but might also be useful for electrical engineers, materials scientists and physical chemists. The topics are written in a clear tutorial style with worked examples, chapter summaries and exercises.

Renormalization: An Introduction (Theoretical and Mathematical Physics)
Lowest new price: $66.96
Lowest used price: $21.03
List price: $84.99
Author: Manfred Salmhofer

This monograph is the first to present the recently discovered renormalization techniques for the Schrödinger and Dirac equations, providing a mathematically rigorous, yet simple and clear introduction to the subject. It develops fieldtheoretic techniques such as Feynman graph expansions and renormalization, taking pains to make all proofs as simple as possible by using generating function techniques throughout. Renormalization is performed by using an exact renormalization group differential equation, a technique that provides simple but complete proofs of the theorems.


Space Groups for Solid State Scientists, Third Edition

Lowest used price: $79.80
List price: $89.95
Author: Michael Glazer
Brand: Brand: Academic Press

This comprehensively revised – essentially rewritten – new edition of the 1990 edition (described as "extremely useful" by MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS and as "understandable and comprehensive" by Scitech) guides readers through the dense array of mathematical information in the International Tables Volume A. Thus, most scientists seeking to understand a crystal structure publication can do this from this book without necessarily having to consult the International Tables themselves. This remains the only book aimed at noncrystallographers devoted to teaching them about crystallographic space groups.  Reflecting the bewildering array of recent changes to the International Tables, this new edition brings the standard of science well uptodate, reorganizes the logical order of chapters, improves diagrams and presents clearer explanations to aid understanding
 Clarifies, condenses and simplifies the meaning of the deeply written, complete Tables of Crystallography into manageable chunks
 Provides a detailed, multifactor, interdisciplinary explanation of how to use the International Tables for a number of possible, hitherto unexplored uses
 Presents essential knowledge to those needing the necessary but missing pedagogical support and detailed advice – useful for instance in symmetry of domain walls in solids

Quantum Field Theory of Manybody Systems: From the Origin of Sound to an Origin of Light and Electrons (Oxford Graduate Texts)
Lowest new price: $37.70
Lowest used price: $35.00
List price: $49.95
Author: XiaoGang Wen
Brand: imusti

For most of the last century, condensed matter physics has been dominated by band theory and Landau's symmetry breaking theory. In the last twenty years, however, there has been the emergence of a new paradigm associated with fractionalization, topological order, emergent gauge bosons and fermions, and string condensation. These new physical concepts are so fundamental that they may even influence our understanding of the origin of light and electrons in the universe. This book is a pedagogical and systematic introduction to the new concepts and quantum field theoretical methods in condensed matter physics. It discusses many basic notions in theoretical physics, which underlie physical phenomena in nature, including a notion that unifies light and electrons. Topics covered are dissipative quantum systems, boson condensation, symmetry breaking and gapless excitations, phase transitions, Fermi liquids, spin density wave states, Fermi and fractional statistics, quantum Hall effects, topological/quantum order, spin liquid and string condensation. Methods discussed include the path integral, Green's functions, meanfield theory, effective theory, renormalization group, bosonization in one and higher dimensions, nonlinear sigmamodel, quantum gauge theory, dualities, slaveboson theory, and exactly soluble models beyond onedimension. This book is aimed at bringing students to the frontiers of research in condensed matter physics.
