Solid Helium Three (Oxford Science Publications)

Solid Helium Three (Oxford Science Publications) Lowest new price: $25.00
Lowest used price: $28.49
List price: $125.00
Author: E. R. Dobbs

The discovery of the astonishing properties of helium three crystals has been one of the hottest topics in low temperature physics over the last two decades. This book provides the first complete account of those properties, including descriptions and interpretations of critical experimental measurements. Beginning with the phase diagram and thermal properties of this uniquely quantum crystal, the author skillfully introduces current theories of solid helium and compares their predictions with measurements of the ground state, elastic and thermal properties, and phonon spectra. The extraordinary magnetic properties are described and discussed in chapters devoted to the paramagnetism, antiferromagnetism, and ferromagnetism of the different phases of solid helium. The text concludes with chapters on crystal growth and defects, and sections on monolayers, bilayers, and multilayers grown on a variety of substrates. Students and researchers in condensed matter physics, physical chemistry, and applied mathematics will welcome this exceptional new book.

List price: $32.95
Author: Walter A. Harrison

"Should be widely read by practicing physicists, chemists and materials scientists." — Philosophical Magazine
In this comprehensive and innovative text, Professor Harrison (Stanford University) offers a basic understanding of the electronic structure of covalent and ionic solids, simple metals, transition metals, and their compounds. The book illuminates the relationships of the electronic structures of these materials and shows how to calculate dielectric, conducting, and bonding properties for each. Also described are various methods of approximating electronic structure, providing insight and even quantitative results from the comparisons. Dr. Harrison has also included an especially helpful "Solid State Table of the Elements" that provides all the parameters needed to estimate almost any property of any solid, with a hand-held calculator, using the techniques developed in the book.
Designed for graduate or advanced undergraduate students who have completed an undergraduate course in quantum mechanics or atomic and modern physics, the text treats the relation between structure and properties comprehensively for all solids rather than for small classes of solids. This makes it an indispensable reference for all who make use of approximative methods for electronic-structure engineering, semiconductor development and materials science.
The problems at the ends of the chapters are an important aspect of the book. They clearly show that the calculations for systems and properties of genuine and current interest are actually quite elementary. Prefaces. Problems. Tables. Appendixes. Solid State Table of the Elements. Bibliography. Author and Subject Indexes.
"Will doubtless exert a lasting influence on the solid-state physics literature." — Physics Today

Polymer Physics

Polymer Physics Lowest new price: $83.27
Lowest used price: $22.93
List price: $119.99
Author: U.W. Gedde
Brand: U W Gedde

This book is the result of my teaching efforts during the last ten years at the Royal Institute of Technology. The purpose is to present the subject of polymer physics for undergraduate and graduate students, to focus the fundamental aspects of the subject and to show the link between experiments and theory. The intention is not to present a compilation of the currently available literature on the subject. Very few reference citations have thus been made. Each chapter has essentially the same structure: starling with an introduction, continuing with the actual subject, summarizing the chapter in 30D-500 words, and finally presenting problems and a list of relevant references for the reader. The solutions to the problems presented in Chapters 1-12 are given in Chapter 13. The theme of the book is essentially polymer science, with the exclusion of that part dealing directly with chemical reactions. The fundamentals in polymer science, including some basic polymer chemistry, are presented as an introduction in the first chapter. The next eight chapters deal with different phenomena (processes) and states of polymers. The last three chapters were written with the intention of making the reader think practically about polymer physics. How can a certain type of problem be solved? What kinds of experiment should be conducted? This book would never have been written without the help of my friend and adviser, Dr Anthony Bristow, who has spent many hours reading through the manuscript. criticizing the content.

Statistical Mechanics of Driven Diffusive Systems, Volume 17 (Phase Transitions and Critical Phenomena)

Statistical Mechanics of Driven Diffusive Systems, Volume 17 (Phase Transitions and Critical Phenomena) Lowest new price: $321.64
List price: $129.00

Far-from-equilibrium phenomena, while abundant in nature, are not nearly as well understood as their equilibrium counterparts. On the theoretical side, progress is slowed by the lack of a simple framework, such as the Boltzmann-Gbbs paradigm in the case of equilibrium thermodynamics. On the experimental side, the enormous structural complexity of real systems poses serious obstacles to comprehension.
Similar difficulties have been overcome in equilibrium statistical mechanics by focusing on model systems. Even if they seem too simplistic for known physical systems, models give us considerable insight, provided they capture the essential physics. They serve as important theoretical testing grounds where the relationship between the generic physical behavior and the key ingredients of a successful theory can be identified and understood in detail.
Within the vast realm of non-equilibrium physics, driven diffusive systems form a subset with particularly interesting properties. As a prototype model for these systems, the driven lattice gas was introduced roughly a decade ago. Since then, a number of surprising phenomena have been discovered including singular correlations at generic temperatures, as well as novel phase transitions, universality classes, and interfacial instabilities. This book summarizes current knowledge on driven systems, from apedagogical discussion of the original driven lattice gas to a brief survey of related models. Given that the topic is far from closed, much emphasis is placed on detailing open questions and unsolved problems as an incentive for the reader to pursue thesubject further.

Radioelements and Isotopes: Chemical Forces and Optical Properties of Substances (Phoenix Edition)

Radioelements and Isotopes: Chemical Forces and Optical Properties of Substances (Phoenix Edition) Lowest new price: $4.15
Lowest used price: $2.49
List price: $37.50
Author: Kasimir Fajans

A pioneer researcher in the field of radioactivity and isotopes, Kasimir Fajans discovered the radioactive displacement law simultaneously with Frederick Soddy of the United Kingdom. The Polish-born physicist taught at the University of Michigan for more than 20 years; and in this concise and systematic study, he surveys groundbreaking research in the study of radioactivity and isotopy.
The first part explores radioelements and isotopes, particularly the origin of the actinium series and the stability of isotopes. The second part examines chemical forces and optical properties, starting with an outline of atomic and crystal structures and the ideal ionic linkage. General remarks on the deformability of ions follow, with discussions of the change of the refractivities of ions in molecules and crystals, the transitions between ideal ionic linkage and non-polar linkage, adsorption of ions on salt-like crystals with applications to volumetric analysis, and photochemical applications of ion adsorption.

Metal Hydrides (NATO ASI Series B, Physics, Volume 76)

Metal Hydrides (NATO ASI Series B, Physics, Volume 76) Lowest new price: $366.22
Lowest used price: $26.05
List price: $99.00
Author: Gust Bambakidis

In the last five years, the study of metal hydrides has ex­ panded enormously due to the potential technological importance of this class of materials in hydrogen based energy conversion schemes. The scope of this activity has been worldwide among the industrially advanced nations. There has been a consensus among researchers in both fundamental and applied areas that a more basic understanding of the properties of metal/hydrogen syster;,s is required in order to provide a rational basis for the selection of materials for specific applications. The current worldwide need for and interest in research in metal hydrides indicated the timeliness of an Advanced Study Insti­ tute to provide an in-depth view of the field for those active in its various aspects. The inclusion of speakers from non-NATO coun­ tries provided the opportunity for cross-fertilization of ideas for future research. While the emphasis of the Institute was on basic properties, there was a conscious effort to stimulate interest in the application of metal hydrides to solar/hydrogen energy conver­ sion schemes in land areas where solar energy has promise as a primary energy source. In addition to the lectures, several seminars were given which treated topics of special interest in greater detail.
