In this book, author Gary Wysin provides an overview of model systems and their behaviour and effects, and is intended for advanced students and researchers in physics, chemistry and engineering interested in confined magnetics. It is also suitable as an auxiliary text in a class on magnetism or solid state physics. Previous physics knowledge is expected, along with some basic knowledge of...
The Physics of Semiconductors provides an overview of the subject for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses, enabling readers to begin supervised research on one specific topic. Readers will find a balance of the essential aspects of solid-state physics and the principles of semiconductor devices.
The emphasis of this text is on basic plasma theory, with applications to both space and laboratory plasmas. It is structured as a text for a one- or two-semester introductory course in plasma physics at the advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate level.
Understanding the concepts of solids, liquids, and gases is central to the early science curriculum. States of Matter uses simple text vetted by a science curriculum consultant and a reading consultant to introduce beginning readers to these important concepts. Each book features a strong photo-text match and clear, full-color diagrams to enhance comprehension, while the simple text builds vocabulary and reading skills.
Prof. Newman is considered one of the great chemical engineers of his time. His reputation derives from his mastery of all phases of the subject matter, his clarity of thought, and his ability to reduce complex problems to their essential core elements. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, Washington, DC, USA, and has won numerous national awards including every award offered by...
Superfluidity and Superconductivity, Third Edition introduces the low-temperature phenomena of superfluidity and superconductivity from a unified viewpoint. The book stresses the existence of a macroscopic wave function as a central principle, presents an extensive discussion of macroscopic theories, and includes full descriptions of relevant experimental results throughout. This edition also...
Completely revised and updated, the second edition of the Handbook of Superconducting Materials is now available in three stand-alone volumes. As a whole they cover the depth and breadth of the field, drawing on an international pool of respected academics and industrial engineers. The three volumes provide hands-on guidance to the manufacturing and processing technologies associated with...
Liquid crystals are a phase of matter critical both in various scientific developments in biology, chemistry, and physics and in applications such as computer displays, electronic books, and thermometers. This book builds on basic scientific concepts from biology, chemistry, and physics to explore the range of the field of liquid crystal science.
This book emphasizes how new generation materials discovered recently (like graphene and topological insulators) can be understood using simple Quantum Transport Theory. The book is aimed at the reader who is just starting research in Theoretical or Experimental Physics of Dirac Materials. It will act as a good guide laying a solid ground using examples and exercise. The book could also be used as...
