The Rainbow and the Worm: The Physics of Organisms

The Rainbow and the Worm: The Physics of Organisms Lowest new price: $26.90
Lowest used price: $26.90
List price: $34.00
Author: Mae-Wan Ho
Brand: Brand: World Scientific Publishing Company

This highly unusual book began as a serious inquiry into Schrödinger,s question, "What is life? ", and as a celebration of life itself. It takes the reader on a voyage of discovery through many areas of contemporary physics, from non-equilibrium thermodynamics and quantum optics to liquid crystals and fractals, all necessary for illuminating the problem of life. In the process, the reader is treated to a rare and exquisite view of the organism, gaining novel insights not only into the physics, but also into "the poetry and meaning of being alive." This much-enlarged third edition includes new findings on the central role of biological water in organizing living processes; it also completes the author's novel theory of the organism and its applications in ecology, physiology and brain science.

Polymer Physics (Chemistry)

Polymer Physics (Chemistry) Lowest new price: $87.85
Lowest used price: $74.28
List price: $137.95
Author: M. Rubinstein

Polymer Physics thoroughly details the fundamental concepts of polymer melts, solutions, and gels in terms of both static structure and dynamics. It goes beyond other introductory polymer texts, deriving the essential tools of the physical polymer chemist or engineer without skipping any steps.

The book is divided into four parts. Part One summarizes the necessary concepts of a first course on polymers and covers the conformations of single polymer chains. Part Two deals with the thermodynamics of polymer solutions and melts, including chain conformations in those states. Part Three applies the concepts of Part Two to the formation and properties of polymer networks. Part Four explains the essential aspects of how polymers move in both melt and solution states.

The text assumes a working knowledge of calculus, physics, and chemistry, but no prior knowledge of polymers. It is ideal for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in Condensed Matter Physics, Soft Materials, and Polymers.

Features


·Presents established results in an easily accessible way


·Emphasizes physical insight rather than mathematical rigor


·Provides detailed experimental sections at the end of each chapter


·Includes more than 200 illustrations and 350 exercises

Theory of Simple Liquids, Fourth Edition: with Applications to Soft Matter

Theory of Simple Liquids, Fourth Edition: with Applications to Soft Matter Lowest new price: $84.18
Lowest used price: $84.22
List price: $99.95
Author: Jean-Pierre Hansen

Comprehensive coverage of topics in the theory of classical liquids

Widely regarded as the standard text in its field, Theory of Simple Liquids gives an advanced but self-contained account of liquid state theory within the unifying framework provided by classical statistical mechanics. The structure of this revised and updated Fourth Edition is similar to that of the previous one but there are significant shifts in emphasis and much new material has been added.

Major changes and Key Features in content include:

  • Expansion of existing sections on simulation methods, liquid-vapour coexistence, the hierarchical reference theory of criticality, and the dynamics of super-cooled liquids.
  • New sections on binary fluid mixtures, surface tension, wetting, the asymptotic decay of pair correlations, fluids in porous media, the thermodynamics of glasses, and fluid flow at solid surfaces.
  • An entirely new chapter on applications to 'soft matter' of a combination of liquid state theory and coarse graining strategies, with sections on polymer solutions and polymer melts, colloidal dispersions, colloid-polymer mixtures, lyotropic liquid crystals, colloidal dynamics, and on clustering and gelation.

Progress in Understanding of Polymer Crystallization (Lecture Notes in Physics)

Progress in Understanding of Polymer Crystallization (Lecture Notes in Physics) Lowest new price: $96.00
Lowest used price: $95.99
List price: $135.00

In the context of polymer crystallization there are several still open and often controversially debated questions. The present volume addresses issues such as novel general views and concepts. It presents new ideas in a connected and accessible way. The intention is thus not only to provide a summary of the present state-of-the-art to all active works but to provide an entry point to newcomer and graduate students entering the field.


Ferromagnetic Materials: A Handbook on the Properties of Magnetically Ordered Substances, Vol. 2

Lowest new price: $68.95
Lowest used price: $39.97
List price: $72.95

The Handbook of Magnetic Materials has a dual purpose; as a textbook, it provides an introduction to a given topic within magnetism, and as a work of reference, it serves scientists active in magnetism research. To fulfill these two goals, each chapter in the Handbook is written by leading authorities in the field, and combines state-of-the-art research results with an extensive compilation of archival knowledge. Magnetism is a rapidly expanding field which constantly continues to encompass new phenomena. Examples of such subfields of magnetism are quadrupolar interactions, magnetic superconductors, and quasiscrystals: topics that are all covered in the present volume. The only common ground between these new materials and ferromagnets, is the possession of a magnetic moment; the series title has been slightly adjusted to reflect this. But in keeping with tradition, the Handbook of Magnetic Materials continues to allow readers to acquaint themselves in great depth with topics through the entire breadth of magnetism research.


Introduction to Polymer Physics

Introduction to Polymer Physics Lowest new price: $37.11
Lowest used price: $29.44
List price: $65.00
Author: M. Doi

Polymers are very large molecules consisting of many atoms covalently bonded like a chain. Their structure gives unique physical properties to polymer solutions. This outstanding textbook gives a clear and concise introduction to the modern theory of polymer physics. It describes basic concepts and methods and explains the statistical properties of the assembly of chain-like molecules; topics include scaling theory, concentration fluctuation, gels, and reptation. This is an ideal volume for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in polymer physics.

Author: Norman H. March

This work provides an introduction to the liquid state. A qualitative description of liquid properties is first given, followed by detailed chapters on thermodynamics, liquid structure in relation to interaction forces and transport properties such as diffusion and viscosity. treatment of complex fluids such as anisotropic liquid crystals and polymers, and of technically important topics such as non-Newtonian and turbulent flows, is included. Surface properties and characteristics of the liquid-vapour critical point are also discussed. While the book focuses on classical liquids, the final chapter deals with quantal fluids.
