Group Theory: Application to the Physics of Condensed Matter
Lowest new price: $67.39
Lowest used price: $64.96
List price: $89.95
Author: Mildred S. Dresselhaus
Brand: Brand: Springer

This concise, classtested book was refined over the authorsâ€™ 30 years as instructors at MIT and the University Federal of Minas Gerais (UFMG) in Brazil. The approach centers on the conviction that teaching group theory along with applications helps students to learn, understand and use it for their own needs. Thus, the theoretical background is confined to introductory chapters. Subsequent chapters develop new theory alongside applications so that students can retain new concepts, build on concepts already learned, and see interrelations between topics. Essential problem sets between chapters aid retention of new material and consolidate material learned in previous chapters.

Elastic Waves in Solids I: Free and Guided Propagation (Advanced Texts in Physics)
Lowest new price: $126.00
Lowest used price: $131.79
List price: $139.99
Author: Daniel Royer

Elastic waves possess some remarkable properties and have become ever more important to applications in fields such as telecommunications (signal processing), medicine (echography), and metallurgy (nondestructive testing). These volumes serve as a bridge between basic books on wave phenomena and more technically oriented books on specific applications of wave phenomena. The first volume studies the different mechanisms of propagation in isotropic and anisotropic media. The second volume describes the generation and applications of free and guided waves.

Photonic Crystals: Molding the Flow of Light  Second Edition
Lowest new price: $75.90
Lowest used price: $63.50
List price: $115.00
Author: John D. Joannopoulos

Since it was first published in 1995, Photonic Crystals has remained the definitive text for both undergraduates and researchers on photonic bandgap materials and their use in controlling the propagation of light. This newly expanded and revised edition covers the latest developments in the field, providing the most uptodate, concise, and comprehensive book available on these novel materials and their applications.
Starting from Maxwell's equations and Fourier analysis, the authors develop the theoretical tools of photonics using principles of linear algebra and symmetry, emphasizing analogies with traditional solidstate physics and quantum theory. They then investigate the unique phenomena that take place within photonic crystals at defect sites and surfaces, from one to three dimensions. This new edition includes entirely new chapters describing important hybrid structures that use band gaps or periodicity only in some directions: periodic waveguides, photoniccrystal slabs, and photoniccrystal fibers. The authors demonstrate how the capabilities of photonic crystals to localize light can be put to work in devices such as filters and splitters. A new appendix provides an overview of computational methods for electromagnetism. Existing chapters have been considerably updated and expanded to include many new threedimensional photonic crystals, an extensive tutorial on device design using temporal coupledmode theory, discussions of diffraction and refraction at crystal interfaces, and more. Richly illustrated and accessibly written, Photonic Crystals is an indispensable resource for students and researchers.  Extensively revised and expanded
 Features improved graphics throughout
 Includes new chapters on photoniccrystal fibers and combined indexand bandgapguiding
 Provides an introduction to coupledmode theory as a powerful tool for device design
 Covers many new topics, including omnidirectional reflection, anomalous refraction and diffraction, computational photonics, and much more.
