Polymer Physics (Chemistry)

Polymer Physics (Chemistry) Lowest new price: $80.95
Lowest used price: $69.99
List price: $182.95
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.

Features


·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

The Rainbow and the Worm: The Physics of Organisms Lowest new price: $34.00
Lowest used price: $28.98
List price: $34.00
Author: Mae Wan Ho
Brand: Ho Mae Wan Mae Wan Ho

This highly unusual book began as a serious inquiry into Schrödinger,s question, "What is life? ", and as a celebration of life itself. It takes the reader on a voyage of discovery through many areas of contemporary physics, from non-equilibrium thermodynamics and quantum optics to liquid crystals and fractals, all necessary for illuminating the problem of life. In the process, the reader is treated to a rare and exquisite view of the organism, gaining novel insights not only into the physics, but also into "the poetry and meaning of being alive." This much-enlarged third edition includes new findings on the central role of biological water in organizing living processes; it also completes the author's novel theory of the organism and its applications in ecology, physiology and brain science.

Handbook on the Physics and Chemistry of Rare Earths, Volume 20

Handbook on the Physics and Chemistry of Rare Earths, Volume 20 Lowest used price: $156.41
List price: $72.95

Volume 20 completes the second decade of volumes in this series and focuses on the physical aspects of metallic compounds. Research efforts on metallic rare earth compounds started in earnest about 50 years ago and received a significant boost with the discovery of the RCo5 permanent magnets about 12 years later. During this time much has been learned about the structure as well as the electrical, magnetic and thermal properties of approximately 2500 binary rare earth metallic compounds. However, if one considers the possible true ternary compounds and possible pseudo-binary ternary alloys formed by mixing two binary compounds, there is still a wealth of knowledge to be obtained from these still-to-be discovered materials. This volume makes a start in this direction.

Chapter one deals with the Fermi surfaces of rare earth (Y, La, Ce,
Pr, Nd, Sm, Gd and Yb) intermetallic compounds. It begins with an introduction to the relevant theories required to describe the electrons near the Fermi surface and then to the basic experimental techniques to study these surfaces. The main portion of the chapter is devoted to a comparison of the experimental results with the band structure calculations for a large number of compounds.
Chapter two examines the world of thin films of rare earth metals, alloys and compounds. The three main topics covered are the pure metals themselves, metallic alloys and compounds, and metalloid compounds. The next chapter is devoted to hydrogen in metals and their binary compounds RH2 and RH3. One of the critical problems is the purity of the starting rare earth metal itself because phase relations can be greatly affected by impurities and attention is
therefore paid to the preparation of specimens and the phase diagrams. Structural properties, kinetics and thermodynamic behavior, as well as electronic, magnetic and thermal properties are reviewed as well. Also examined is the profound influence of hydrogen on the magnetic properties by the mediation of RKKY interaction in these materials. The final chapter is an update on the magnetic behaviors of lanthanide intermetallic compounds, an
area which has seen many new developments in the last 15 years. The chapter is divided into two main parts. Part one is devoted to 3d magnetism where both the 3d metal and lanthanide element contribute to the magnetic behavior, and the second part is concerned with lanthanide magnetism itself.

Since their creation in 1958, the International Symposia on Rarefied Gas Dynamics serve as one of the main forums for the presentation of recent advances in scientific and technical fields involving physical phenomena and processes in gases in rarefied regimes. Symposia on rarefied gas dynamics are concerned with the properties and flows of rarefied gases and with the interactions of these gases with solid surfaces and force fields. The essential characteristic of a "rarefied flow" is a reasonably high Knudsen number or higher density flows where very small physical dimensions are relevant. Topics include: kinetic theory and transport phenomena; rarefied flow studies; plasma flows and processing; numerical methods; gas-surface interactions; particle models and procedures; microscale flows; multiphase flows; chemical reactions and thermal radiation; low density aerodynamics; jets, plumes, and propulsion; clusters, aerosols, and granular gases; and internal flows and vacuum systems.
