  • Statistical Physics and Thermodynamics by Jochen Rau
    Statistical Physics and Thermodynamics (English, Paperback) Jochen Rau

    Statistical physics and thermodynamics describe the behaviour of systems on the macroscopic scale. Their methods are applicable to a wide range of phenomena, from neutron stars to heat engines, or from chemical reactions to phase transitions. The pertinent laws are among the most universal ones of all laws of physics.

  • Brownian Motion Calculus by Ubbo F. Wiersema
    Brownian Motion Calculus (English, Paperback) Ubbo F. Wiersema

    There are not many calculus books that are very accessible to students without a strong mathematical background and the large majority of financial derivatives students do not have a strong quantitative background. This book provides a short introduction to the subject with examples of its use in mathematical finance e. g pricing of derivatives.

  • Why More Is Different by Brigitte Falkenburg
    Why More Is Different (English, Hardback) Brigitte Falkenburg

    The physics of condensed matter, in contrast to quantum physics or cosmology, is not traditionally associated with deep philosophical questions. However, as science - largely thanks to more powerful computers - becomes capable of analysing and modelling ever more complex many-body systems, basic questions of philosophical relevance arise.

  • Soft Matter Physics by Masao Doi
    Soft Matter Physics (English, Hardback) Masao Doi

    Soft matter (polymers, colloids, surfactants, liquid crystals) are an important class of materials for modern and future technologies. They are complex materials that behave neither like a fluid nor a solid. This book describes the characteristics of such materials and how we can understand such characteristics in the language of physics.

  • From Strange Simplicity to Complex Familiarity by Manfred Eigen
    From Strange Simplicity to Complex Familiarity (English, Hardback) Manfred Eigen

    This book presents a vivid argument for the almost lost idea of a unity of all natural sciences. This unity engenders the "complex familiarity" of the world in which we live and which can be described in "strangely simple" theoretical terms, leading to surprising new insights into the mysterious phenomenon of life.
