Chemical Dynamics in Condensed Phases: Relaxation, Transfer, and Reactions in Condensed Molecular Systems (Oxford Graduate Texts)

Chemical Dynamics in Condensed Phases: Relaxation, Transfer, and Reactions in Condensed Molecular Systems (Oxford Graduate Texts) Lowest new price: $58.50
Lowest used price: $39.95
List price: $79.95
Author: Abraham Nitzan

This text provides a uniform and consistent approach to diversified problems encountered in the study of dynamical processes in condensed phase molecular systems. Given the broad interdisciplinary aspect of this subject, the book focuses on three themes: coverage of needed background material, in-depth introduction of methodologies, and analysis of several key applications. The uniform approach and common language used in all discussions help to develop general understanding and insight on condensed phases chemical dynamics. The applications discussed are among the most fundamental processes that underlie physical, chemical, and biological phenomena in complex systems.

The Physics of Interacting Electrons in Disordered Systems (International Series of Monographs on Physics)

The Physics of Interacting Electrons in Disordered Systems (International Series of Monographs on Physics) Lowest new price: $12.84
Lowest used price: $15.33
List price: $140.00
Author: Hiroshi Kamimura

This book surveys advances in the study of electron behavior in systems without periodicity--one of the most fascinating areas in solid state physics. The first half of the book covers impurity bands in three dimensions, focusing on the regime in which the electrons are spatially localized, so that an interesting interplay of localization and interaction arises. The second part of the book covers the outstanding features of two-dimensional electron systems, explaining the remarkable effects of magnetic fields, including the normal and fractional quantum Hall effect. As a whole, the book draws together findings from an enormous amount of research into the electronic properties of disordered systems, while the separate chapters may be read as self-contained units.


Optical Properties of Solids (Oxford Master Series in Physics)

Optical Properties of Solids (Oxford Master Series in Physics) Lowest new price: $37.70
Lowest used price: $36.99
List price: $55.00
Author: Mark Fox
Brand: imusti

The second edition of this successful textbook provides an up-to-date 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.

Fluid Metals: The Liquid-Vapor Transition of Metals (Physical Chemistry: Science and Engineering)

Fluid Metals: The Liquid-Vapor Transition of Metals (Physical Chemistry: Science and Engineering) Lowest new price: $29.27
Lowest used price: $29.26
List price: $47.95
Author: Friedrich Hensel

This is a long-needed general introduction to the physics and chemistry of the liquid-vapor phase transition of metals. Physicists and physical chemists have made great strides understanding the basic principles involved, and engineers have discovered a wide variety of new uses for fluid metals. Yet there has been no book that brings together the latest ideas and findings in the field or that bridges the conceptual gap between the condensed-matter physics relevant to a dense metallic liquid and the molecular chemistry relevant to a dilute atomic vapor. Friedrich Hensel and William Warren seek to change that here. They draw on cutting-edge research and data from carefully selected fluid-metal systems as they strive to develop a rigorous theoretical approach to predict the thermodynamic behavior of fluid metals over the entire liquid-vapor range.

This book will appeal to theoreticians interested in metal-nonmetal transitions or continuous phase transitions in general. It will also be of great value to those who need to understand the practical applications of fluid metals, for example, as a high-temperature working fluid or as a key component of semiconductor manufacturing.

Topological Insulators and Topological Superconductors

Topological Insulators and Topological Superconductors Lowest new price: $66.64
Lowest used price: $71.95
List price: $97.50
Author: B. Bernevig

This graduate-level textbook is the first pedagogical synthesis of the field of topological insulators and superconductors, one of the most exciting areas of research in condensed matter physics. Presenting the latest developments, while providing all the calculations necessary for a self-contained and complete description of the discipline, it is ideal for graduate students and researchers preparing to work in this area, and it will be an essential reference both within and outside the classroom.


The book begins with simple concepts such as Berry phases, Dirac fermions, Hall conductance and its link to topology, and the Hofstadter problem of lattice electrons in a magnetic field. It moves on to explain topological phases of matter such as Chern insulators, two- and three-dimensional topological insulators, and Majorana p-wave wires. Additionally, the book covers zero modes on vortices in topological superconductors, time-reversal topological superconductors, and topological responses/field theory and topological indices. The book also analyzes recent topics in condensed matter theory and concludes by surveying active subfields of research such as insulators with point-group symmetries and the stability of topological semimetals. Problems at the end of each chapter offer opportunities to test knowledge and engage with frontier research issues. Topological Insulators and Topological Superconductors will provide graduate students and researchers with the physical understanding and mathematical tools needed to embark on research in this rapidly evolving field.
