Atomic and Electronic Structure of Solids

Atomic and Electronic Structure of Solids Lowest new price: $95.62
Lowest used price: $57.50
List price: $127.00
Author: Efthimios Kaxiras
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

This graduate textbook designed for students in physics, chemistry and materials science provides a modern treatment of the theory of solids dealing with the physics of electron and phonon states in crystals and how they determine the structure and properties of solids. The first part of the book deals with electrons and atoms in a crystal, and the second part extends the discussion to defects in crystals and to structures without crystalline symmetry. There are numerous exercises throughout and appendices to provide the necessary background.

Laser Cooling and Trapping (Graduate Texts in Contemporary Physics) Lowest new price: $55.42
Lowest used price: $38.00
List price: $69.99
Author: Harold J. Metcalf
Brand: imusti

Intended for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduates with some basic knowledge of optics and quantum mechanics, this text begins with a review of the relevant results of quantum mechanics, before turning to the electromagnetic interactions involved in slowing and trapping atoms and ions, in both magnetic and optical traps. The concluding chapters discuss a broad range of applications, from atomic clocks and studies of collision processes, to diffraction and interference of atomic beams at optical lattices and Bose-Einstein condensation.

Atoms, Electrons, and Change: A Scientific American Library Book

Atoms, Electrons, and Change: A Scientific American Library Book Lowest new price: $12.94
Lowest used price: $1.55
List price: $32.95
Author: P. W. Atkins
Brand: Freeman

A century and a half ago the pioneering physicist and chemist Michael Faraday delivered a celebrated series of lectures that attempted to explain the inner workings of matter through the chemical history of a candle. "There is no better, there is no more open door by which you can enter into the study of natural philosophy", Faraday told his audience. Now the distinguished chemist P.W. Atkins follows in Faraday's footsteps, using his predecessor's deceptively simple theme to show how far we have come in understanding the remarkable chemical reactions that govern everything from how candles burn to how life functions. While Faraday could say little more than that a chemical reaction changes a substance's appearance and properties, chemists today understand reactions in terms of the rearrangement of atoms and electrons. Atkins - tracing the course of a carbon atom released by a flaming candle - explores the complex forces that operate at the atomic and sub atomic levels to drive these rearrangements.

The Briefest History of Time: The History of Histories of Time and the Misconstrued Association between Entropy and Time

The Briefest History of Time: The History of Histories of Time and the Misconstrued Association between Entropy and Time Lowest new price: $21.38
Lowest used price: $6.72
List price: $24.00
Author: Arieh Ben-Naim
Brand: Ingramcontent

The aim of this book is to explain in simple language what we know about time and about the history of time. It is shown that the briefest (as well as the lengthiest) history of time can be described in one or two pages.

The second purpose of the book is to show that neither entropy, nor the Second Law of Thermodynamics has anything to do with time. The third purpose is to educate the lay reader how to read popular science books, critically. Towards this goal, detailed reviews of four books on time are presented.

There are many popular science books on Time, on the beginning of Time and the end of Time. This book is unique in the following two senses:

  • It explains in simple terms what Time is, and why it is not related to entropy
  • It critically reviews a few popular science books which perpetuate all kinds of unfounded ideas about the relationship between Time and the Second Law
Readership: Interested lay public, students of any of the sciences, scientists, teachers and researchers.

Ageing and the Glass Transition (Lecture Notes in Physics) Lowest new price: $45.58
Lowest used price: $39.31
List price: $109.00
Brand: Brand: Springer

Understanding cooperative phenomena far from equilibrium is one of the fascinating challenges of present-day many-body physics. Glassy behaviour and the physical ageing process of such materials are paradigmatic examples. The present volume, primarily intended as introduction and reference, collects six extensive lectures addressing selected experimental and theoretical issues in the field of glassy systems.

Clusters and Nanostructure Interfaces

Clusters and Nanostructure Interfaces Lowest new price: $78.64
Lowest used price: $78.17
List price: $320.00

This book deals with the evolution of the properties of clusters, nanostructures and cluster-based materials, with emphasis on the role of the interface. These materials are characterized by reduced size, dimension and symmetry, and possess many novel properties that are not commonly seen in their bulk phases. The topics include synthesis, nucleation, growth, characterization, atomic and electronic structure, dynamics, ultra-fast spectroscopy, stability; electrical, magnetic, optical, thermodynamic and catalytic properties of clusters (free and supported); cluster materials (self-assembled, ligated and embedded); nanostructures (quantum dots, wells and corrals; nanotubes and wires; colloidal and biological materials) and nano-technology (electronic, magnetic and optical devices). In addition to presenting the current status of the field, the book discusses outstanding problems and future directions.
