Strongly Coupled Coulomb Systems

Strongly Coupled Coulomb Systems Lowest new price: $88.39
Lowest used price: $115.48
List price: $279.99

The International Conference on Strongly Coupled Coulomb Systems was held on the campus of Boston College in Newton, Massachusetts, August 3–10, 1997. Although this conference was the first under a new name, it was the continuation of a series of international meetings on strongly coupled plasmas and other Coulomb systems that started with the NATO Summer Institute on Strongly Coupled Plasmas, almost exactly twenty years prior to this conference, in July of 1977 in Orleans la Source, France. Over the intervening period the field of strongly coupled plasmas has developed vigorously. In the 1977 meeting the emphasis was on computer (Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics) simulations which provided, for the first time, insight into the rich and new physics of strongly coupled fully ionizedplasmas. While theorists scrambled to provide a theoretical underpinning for these results, there was also a dearth of real experimental input to reinforce the computer simulations. Over the past few years this situation has changed drastically and a variety of direct experiments on classical, pure, strongly correlated plasma systems (charged particle traps, dusty plasmas, electrons on the surface of liquid helium, etc. ) have become available. Even more importantly, entire new area of experimental interest in condensed matter physics have opened up through developments in nano-technology and the fabrication of low-dimensional systems, where the physical behavior, in many ways, is similar to that in classical plasmas. Strongly coupled plasma physics has always been an interdisciplinaryactivity.


Inductively Coupled Plasma - Atomic Emission Spectroscopy: An Atlas of Spectral Information (Physical Sciences Data)

Inductively Coupled Plasma - Atomic Emission Spectroscopy: An Atlas of Spectral Information (Physical Sciences Data) Lowest used price: $2,263.54
List price: $561.00
Author: R.K. Winge

This atlas is the only compilation of spectral data which provides the analyst with a general view of the elemental spectra emitted by the ICP. Coincidence profiles enable the analyst to assess the relative liabilities of prominent analytical lines to a variety of spectral interference types. The data presented are all based on actual spectra emitted by ICPs operated under the optimized conditions usually employed for sample analysis.

The work is composed of three main sections, the first being concerned with the historical aspects of compilations of spectral information. The second part is based on 232 wavelength scans of 70 elements. Each of the wavelength scans covers an 80 nm spectral region. These scans allow a rapid comparison of the background and spectral line intensities emitted in the ICP and provide a ready means for identifying the most prominent lines of each element and for estimating the trace element analytical capabilities of these lines. A listing of 973 prominent lines with associated detection limits is also given. The third part addresses the problem of spectral interferences and contains a detailed collection of coincidence profiles for 281 of the most prominent lines, each with profiles of 10 of the most prevalent comcomitants superposed. These profiles illustrate normal line overlap interferences as well as clarify interferences arising from recombination continua, line broadening, background features (argon and hydrogen lines and molecular bands), and of special significance, interferences arising from numerous lines not listed in the major wavelength tables. The 10 elements chosen as interferents cover a large number of the interferences that will be encountered in the analysis of samples of biological, environmental, and geological origin.


Fusion Plasma Physics

Fusion Plasma Physics Lowest new price: $131.20
Lowest used price: $122.00
List price: $176.00
Author: Weston M. Stacey

This revised and enlarged second edition of the popular textbook and reference contains comprehensive treatments of both the established foundations of magnetic fusion plasma physics and of the newly developing areas of active research. It concludes with a look ahead to fusion power reactors of the future. The well-established topics of fusion plasma physics -- basic plasma phenomena, Coulomb scattering, drifts of charged particles in magnetic and electric fields, plasma confinement by magnetic fields, kinetic and fluid collective plasma theories, plasma equilibria and flux surface geometry, plasma waves and instabilities, classical and neoclassical transport, plasma-materials interactions, radiation, etc. -- are fully developed from first principles through to the computational models employed in modern plasma physics.
The new and emerging topics of fusion plasma physics research -- fluctuation-driven plasma transport and gyrokinetic/gyrofluid computational methodology, the physics of the divertor, neutral atom recycling and transport, impurity ion transport, the physics of the plasma edge (diffusive and non-diffusive transport, MARFEs, ELMs, the L-H transition, thermal-radiative instabilities, shear suppression of transport, velocity spin-up), etc. -- are comprehensively developed and related to the experimental evidence. Operational limits on the performance of future fusion reactors are developed from plasma physics and engineering constraints, and conceptual designs of future fusion power reactors are discussed.


Magnetic Reconnection: MHD Theory and Applications

Magnetic Reconnection: MHD Theory and Applications Lowest new price: $347.38
Lowest used price: $77.50
List price: $157.99
Author: Eric Priest

Magnetic reconnection is at the core of many dynamic phenomena in the universe, such as solar flares, geomagnetic substorms and tokamak disruptions. Written by two world leaders on the subject, this volume provides a comprehensive overview of this fundamental process. Coverage gives both a pedagogical account of the basic theory and a wide-ranging review of the physical phenomena created by reconnection--from laboratory machines, the Earth's magnetosphere, and the Sun's atmosphere to flare stars and astrophysical accretion disks. It also includes a succinct account of particle acceleration by electric fields, stochastic fields and shock waves, and how reconnection can be important in these mechanisms. Clearly written and highly accessible, this volume serves as an essential introduction for graduate students in solar physics, astrophysics, plasma physics and space science. Researchers in these fields also will find Magnetic Reconnection an authoritative reference.


Statistical Physics and Chaos in Fusion Plasmas (Nonequilibrium Problems in the Physical Sciences and Biology)

Lowest new price: $77.37
Lowest used price: $16.95
List price: $105.00

Papers from twenty-nine of the world's leading scientists investigate the statistical properties of nonlinear dynamical systems, emphasizing their relation to the problem of plasma confinement. A powerful, new diagrammatic peturbation theory is presented for a first principles calculation of the Clump Kinetic equation, and for the first time, detailed calculations and experimental considerations describe the practical consequences of these correlations. Unique to this book is the collection of works on the problem of long-lived correlations in phase space of the Vlasov Poisson system. A new method of computing Lyapunov exponents from experimental data, and a method for calculating the splitting of periodic orbits in conservative systems are developed.
