Radiative Heat Transfer, Third Edition
Lowest new price: $94.25
Lowest used price: $91.17
List price: $139.95
Author: Michael F. Modest
Brand: Brand: Academic Press

The third edition of Radiative Heat Transfer describes the basic physics of radiation heat transfer. The book provides models, methodologies, and calculations essential in solving research problems in a variety of industries, including solar and nuclear energy, nanotechnology, biomedical, and environmental. Every chapter of Radiative Heat Transfer offers uncluttered nomenclature, numerous worked examples, and a large number of problems―many based on real world situations―making it ideal for classroom use as well as for selfstudy. The book's 24 chapters cover the four major areas in the field: surface properties; surface transport; properties of participating media; and transfer through participating media. Within each chapter, all analytical methods are developed in substantial detail, and a number of examples show how the developed relations may be applied to practical problems.  Extensive solution manual for adopting instructors
 Most complete text in the field of radiative heat transfer
 Many worked examples and endofchapter problems
 Large number of computer codes (in Fortran and C++), ranging from basic problem solving aids to sophisticated research tools

QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter
Lowest new price: $19.69
Lowest used price: $3.39
List price: $16.95
Author: Richard P. Feynman
Brand: Princeton University Press

Famous the world over for the creative brilliance of his insights into the physical world, Nobel Prizewinning physicist Richard Feynman also possessed an extraordinary talent for explaining difficult concepts to the nonscientist. QEDthe edited version of four lectures on quantum electrodynamics that Feynman gave to the general public at UCLA as part of the Alix G. Mautner Memorial Lecture seriesis perhaps the best example of his ability to communicate both the substance and the spirit of science to the layperson. The focus, as the title suggests, is quantum electrodynamics (QED), the part of the quantum theory of fields that describes the interactions of the quanta of the electromagnetic fieldlight, X rays, gamma rayswith matter and those of charged particles with one another. By extending the formalism developed by Dirac in 1933, which related quantum and classical descriptions of the motion of particles, Feynman revolutionized the quantum mechanical understanding of the nature of particles and waves. And, by incorporating his own readily visualizable formulation of quantum mechanics, Feynman created a diagrammatic version of QED that made calculations much simpler and also provided visual insights into the mechanisms of quantum electrodynamic processes. In this book, using everyday language, spatial concepts, visualizations, and his renowned "Feynman diagrams" instead of advanced mathematics, Feynman successfully provides a definitive introduction to QED for a lay readership without any distortion of the basic science. Characterized by Feynman's famously original clarity and humor, this popular book on QED has not been equaled since its publication.

Technical Physics, 4th Edition
Lowest new price: $78.00
Lowest used price: $69.99
List price: $100.81
Author: Frederick Bueche

The basic nature of the text remains the same but numerous modifications have been made to enhance its teachability. Photometry units and definitions are now consistent with the latest publications. A discussion of ideal fluid flow with Bernoulli's equation and the conservation of mass has been added. An expanded mathematics section of the appendix includes logarithms and their equations as well as approximations and trigonometric identities. Problems are greater in both number and variety.

Author: Eric Bonabeau
Brand: Eric Bonabeau

Social insectsants, bees, termites, and waspscan be viewed as powerful problemsolving systems with sophisticated collective intelligence. Composed of simple interacting agents, this intelligence lies in the networks of interactions among individuals and between individuals and the environment. A fascinating subject, social insects are also a powerful metaphor for artificial intelligence, and the problems they solvefinding food, dividing labor among nestmates, building nests, responding to external challengeshave important counterparts in engineering and computer science. This book provides a detailed look at models of social insect behavior and how to apply these models in the design of complex systems. The book shows how these models replace an emphasis on control, preprogramming, and centralization with designs featuring autonomy, emergence, and distributed functioning. These designs are proving immensely flexible and robust, able to adapt quickly to changing environments and to continue functioning even when individual elements fail. In particular, these designs are an exciting approach to the tremendous growth of complexity in software and information. Swarm Intelligence draws on uptodate research from biology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, robotics, operations research, and computer graphics, and each chapter is organized around a particular biological example, which is then used to develop an algorithm, a multiagent system, or a group of robots. The book will be an invaluable resource for a broad range of disciplines.

Martians of Science: Five Physicists Who Changed the Twentieth Century
Lowest new price: $14.74

List price: $18.95
Author: Istvan Hargittai
Brand: Istvan Hargittai

If science has the equivalent of a Bloomsbury group, it is the five men born at the turn of the twentieth century in Budapest: Theodore von Kármán, Leo Szilard, Eugene Wigner, John von Neumann, and Edward Teller. From Hungary to Germany to the United States, they remained friends and continued to work together and influence each other throughout their lives. As a result, their work was integral to some of the most important scientific and political developments of the twentieth century. István Hargittai tells the story of this remarkable group: Wigner won a Nobel Prize in theoretical physics; Szilard was the first to see that a chain reaction based on neutrons was possible, initiated the Manhattan Project, but left physics to try to restrict nuclear arms; von Neumann could solve difficult problems in his head and developed the modern computer for more complex problems; von Kármán became the first director of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, providing the scientific basis for the U.S. Air Force; and Teller was the father of the hydrogen bomb, whose name is now synonymous with the controversial "Star Wars" initiative of the 1980s. Each was fiercely opinionated, politically active, and fought against all forms of totalitarianism. Hargittai, as a young Hungarian physical chemist, was able to get to know some of these great men in their later years, and the depth of information and human interest in The Martians of Science is the result of his personal relationships with the subjects, their families, and their contemporaries.
