Elastic Instability Phenomena

Elastic Instability Phenomena Lowest new price: $200.00
Lowest used price: $134.37
List price: $165.00
Author: J. M. T. Thompson

This treatise on the stability of engineering structures and components under conservative and non-conservative loading emphasizes important non-linear features of the behavior from the viewpoint of catastrophe phenomena. Part One examines the basis of structural dynamics, and Part Two considers the buckling and post-buckling of structures under gravity loading, and relates the engineering approach to the new catastrophe theory of Thom and Zeeman.

The Chemical Bond in Inorganic Chemistry: The Bond Valence Model (International Union of Crystallography Monographs on Crystallography)

The Chemical Bond in Inorganic Chemistry: The Bond Valence Model (International Union of Crystallography Monographs on Crystallography) Lowest new price: $158.34
Lowest used price: $54.99
List price: $93.00
Author: I. David Brown

This book describes the bond valence model, a description of acid-base bonding which is becoming increasingly popular particularly in fields such as materials science and mineralogy where solid state inorganic chemistry is important. Recent improvements in crystal structure determination have allowed the model to become more quantitative. Unlike other models of inorganic chemical bonding, the bond valence model is simple, intuitive, and predictive, and can be used for analysing crystal structures and the conceptual modelling of local as well as extended structures. This is the first book to explore the theoretical basis of the model and to show how it can be applied to synthetic and solution chemistry. It emphasizes the separate roles of the constraints of chemistry and of three-dimensional space by analysing the chemistry of solids. Many applications of the model in physics, materials science, chemistry, mineralogy, soil science, surface science, and molecular biology are reviewed. The final chapter describes how the bond valence model relates to and represents a simplification of other models of inorganic chemical bonding.

Quantum Ising Phases and Transitions in Transverse Ising Models (Lecture Notes in Physics)

Quantum Ising Phases and Transitions in Transverse Ising Models (Lecture Notes in Physics) Lowest new price: $77.30
Lowest used price: $81.29
List price: $89.95
Author: Sei Suzuki
Brand: Brand: Springer

Quantum phase transitions, driven by quantum fluctuations, exhibit intriguing features offering the possibility of potentially new applications, e.g. in quantum information sciences. Major advances have been made in both theoretical and experimental investigations of the nature and behavior of quantum phases and transitions in cooperatively interacting many-body quantum systems.

 For modeling purposes, most of the current innovative and successful research in this field has been obtained by either directly or indirectly using the insights provided by quantum (or transverse field) Ising models because of the separability of the cooperative interaction from the tunable transverse field or tunneling term in the relevant Hamiltonian. Also, a number of condensed matter systems can be modeled accurately in this approach, hence granting the possibility to compare advanced models with actual experimental results.

 This work introduces these quantum Ising models and analyses them both theoretically and numerically in great detail. With its tutorial approach the book addresses above all young researchers who wish to enter the field and are in search of a suitable and self-contained text, yet it will also serve as a valuable reference work for all active researchers in this area.

Quantum Optics: An Introduction (Oxford Master Series in Physics)

Quantum Optics: An Introduction (Oxford Master Series in Physics) Lowest new price: $35.86
Lowest used price: $39.89
List price: $65.00
Author: Mark Fox
Brand: imusti

Most previous texts on quantum optics have been written primarily for the graduate student market at PhD level and above. Quantum optics: an introduction aims to introduce a wide range of topics at a lower level suitable for advanced undergraduate and masters level students in physics. The text is divided into four main parts, covering modern topics in both pure and applied quantum optics: I Introduction and background material. II. Photons. III. Atom-photon interactions. IV. Quantum information processing. The emphasis of the subject development is on intuitive physical understanding rather than mathematical arguments, although many derivations are included where appropriate. The text includes numerous illustrations, with a particular emphasis on the experimental observations of quantum optical phenomena. Each chapter includes worked examples, together with 10-15 exercises with solutions. Six appendices are included to supplement the main subject material.

Polymer Physics (Chemistry)

Polymer Physics (Chemistry) Lowest new price: $76.01
Lowest used price: $77.76
List price: $191.95
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
