Professor Ziman's vintage textbook at the thought of solids used to be first pulished in 1964. This paperback version is a reprint of the second one version, which was once considerably revised and enlarged in 1972. the price and recognition of this textbook is definitely attested through reviewers' reviews and through the lifestyles of a number of overseas language variations, together with German, Italian, Spanish, eastern, Polish and Russian. The e-book offers a transparent exposition of the weather of the physics of ideal crystalline solids. In discussing the rules, the writer goals to offer scholars an appreciation of the stipulations that are invaluable for the looks of many of the phenomena. A self-contained mathematical account is given of the easiest version that would exhibit every one precept. A grounding in quantum mechanics and data of straightforward proof approximately solids is thought. this is often hence a textbook for complex undergraduates and can also be acceptable for graduate classes.

Книга Theoretical Microfluidics Theoretical MicrofluidicsКниги Физика Автор: Henrik Bruus Год издания: 2008 Формат: pdf Издат.:Oxford college Press Страниц: 288 Размер: 2,9 Мб ISBN: 0199235090 Язык: Английский0 (голосов: zero) Оценка:Microfluidics is a tender and swiftly increasing medical self-discipline, which offers with fluids and options in miniaturized platforms, the so-called lab-on-a-chip structures. It has functions in chemical engineering, pharmaceutics, biotechnology and drugs. because the lab-on-a-chip structures develop in complexity, a formal theoretical knowing turns into more and more very important. the elemental proposal of the booklet is to supply a self-contained formula of the theoretical framework of microfluidics, and whilst provide actual motivation and examples from lab-on-a-chip know-how. After 3 chapters introducing microfluidics, the governing equations for mass, momentum and effort, and a few easy movement suggestions, the next 14 chapters deal with hydraulic resistance/compliance, diffusion/dispersion, time-dependent stream, capillarity, electro- and magneto-hydrodynamics, thermal shipping, two-phase circulate, complicated circulation styles and acousto-fluidics, in addition to the recent fields of opto- and nano-fluidics. during the ebook basic types with analytical strategies are awarded to supply the coed with a radical actual realizing of order of magnitudes and diverse chosen microfluidic phenomena and units. The e-book grew out of a suite of well-tested lecture notes. it truly is with its many pedagogical workouts designed as a textbook for a complicated undergraduate or first-year graduate direction. it's also compatible for self-study.

Fractal constructions are chanced on far and wide in nature, and hence anomalous diffusion has a ways attaining implications in a bunch of phenomena. This publication describes diffusion and delivery in disordered media resembling fractals, porous rocks and random resistor networks. half I includes fabric of basic curiosity to statistical physics: fractals, percolation conception, typical random walks and diffusion, non-stop time random walks and Levy walks, and flights. half II covers anomalous diffusion in fractals and disordered media, whereas half III serves as an creation to the kinetics of diffusion-limited reactions. half IV discusses the matter of diffusion-limited coalescence in a single measurement. This publication might be of specific curiosity to researchers requiring a transparent creation to the sphere. it is going to even be a helpful resource to graduate scholars learning in components of physics, chemistry, and engineering.

This article comprises assurance of significant themes that aren't ordinarily featured in different textbooks on condensed subject physics; those comprise surfaces, the quantum corridor influence and superfluidity. the writer avoids advanced formalism, corresponding to Green's capabilities, that could imprecise the underlying physics, and as a substitute emphasizes primary actual reasoning. this article is meant for lecture room use, so it beneficial properties lots of references and huge difficulties for resolution in response to the author's a long time of training within the Physics division on the college of Michigan. This textbook is perfect for physics graduates in addition to scholars in chemistry and engineering; it could both function a reference for study scholars in condensed subject physics. Engineering scholars particularly, will locate the therapy of the basics of semiconductor units and the optics of solids of specific curiosity.

Superconductivity has turn into some of the most intensely studied actual phenomena of our occasions, with super power to revolutionize fields as diversified as computing and transportation. This e-book describes the tools, tested effects, and up to date advances within the box. The aim is to give lately constructed theoretical types in mild of the long-sought goal of accomplishing the impression at very excessive temperatures. The ebook incorporates a particular evaluation of assorted mechanisms, together with phononic, magnetic, and digital versions. The authors specialize in the phenomenon of caused superconductivity within the high-temperature oxides, quite the high-transition-temperature cuprates. additionally they speak about numerous low-temperature superconducting structures in traditional fabrics and organics. The ebook hyperlinks the the most important experiments with the most up-tp-date theories, supplying a unified description of the phenomenon. All researchers (and graduate-level) scholars concerned with paintings in superconductivity will locate this a useful source, together with solid-state and condensed-matter physicists and chemists, and fabrics scientists.

The self-contained houses of discotic liquid crystals (DLCs) render them strong useful fabrics for plenty of semiconducting machine purposes and types for strength and cost migration in self-organized dynamic sensible smooth fabrics. The earlier 3 many years have noticeable large curiosity during this sector, fueled essentially through the opportunity of making a new new release of natural semiconductors and vast viewing monitors utilizing DLCs. whereas a couple of books on classical calamitic liquid crystals can be found, there are, as but, no books which are devoted completely to the elemental layout rules, synthesis, and actual homes of DLCs. the 1st reference publication to hide DLCs, Chemistry of Discotic Liquid Crystals: From Monomers to Polymers highlights the chemistry and thermal habit of DLCs. Divided into six chapters, each one with a basic description, heritage, and context for the ideas concerned, the e-book starts off with a easy advent to liquid crystals, describing molecular self-assembly and diverse different types of liquid crystals. It outlines their class, covers their heritage and normal purposes, and specializes in DLCs and their discovery, constitution, characterization, and alignment. The booklet is going directly to study the chemistry and actual houses of assorted monomeric DLCs, together with 25 sections describing the synthesis and mesomorphic homes of monomeric DLCs shaped by way of various cores. the majority of the e-book covers the chemistry and mesomorphism of discotic dimers, oligomers, and polymers and concludes with a glance at a few appropriate houses of DLCs. A finished and up to date source, this publication is designed to be obtainable and of worth not only for college kids and researchers but additionally to the administrators and critical investigators operating during this box, supplying the basis and gas to strengthen this fast-growing technological box.
