An introduction to the physics and chemistry of the liquid-vapour phase transition of metals, this book examines the condensed-matter physics relevant to a dense metallic liquid and the molecular chemistry relevant to a dilute atomic vapour. Drawing on resaerch and data from carefully selected fluid-metal systems, it attempts to develop a rigorous theoretical approach to predict the thermodynamic behaviour of fluid metals over the entire liquid-vapour range. The book should appeal tyo theoreticians interested in metal to non-metal transitions or continuous phase transitions in general. It could also be of value to those who need to understand the practical applications of fluid metals, for example, as a high-temperature working fluid or as a key component of semiconductor manufacturing.
|Handbook on the Physics and Chemistry of Rare Earths, Volume Volume 6

Author: Author Unknown
The rare earths play a unique role in science. These seventeen related elements afford a panoply of subtle variations deriving from the systematic development of their electronic configurations, allowing a test of theory with excellent resolution. In contrast they find widespread use in even the most mundane processes such as steel making, for polishing materials and gasoline cracking catalysts. In between are exotic uses such as TV screen phosphors, lasers, high strength permanent magnets and chemical probes. This multi-volume handbook covers the entire rare earth field in an integrated manner. Each chapter is a comprehensive up-to-date, critical review of a particular segment of the field. The work offers the researcher and graduate student alike, a complete and thorough coverage of this fascinating field.

The Matching Method for Asymptotic Solutions in Chemical Physics Problems by A. M. Il'in, L. A. Kalyakin, and S. I. Maslennikov
Singularly Perturbed Problems with Boundary and Interior Layers: Theory and Application by V. F. Butuzov and A. B. Vasilieva
Numerical Methods for Singularly Perturbed Boundary Value Problems Modeling Diffusion Processes by V. L. Kolmogorov and G. I. Shishkin
An important addition to the Advances in Chemical Physics series, this volume makes available for the first time in English the work of leading Russian researchers in singular perturbation theory and its application. Since boundary layers were first introduced by Prandtl early in this century, rapid advances have been made in the analytic and numerical investigation of these phenomena, and nowhere have these advances been more notable than in the Russian school of singular perturbation theory. The three chapters in this volume treat various aspects of singular perturbations and their numerical solution, and represent some of the best work done in this area:
* The first chapter, "The Matching Method for Asymptotic Solutions in Chemical Physics Problems," is concerned with the analysis of some singular perturbation problems that arise in chemical kinetics. In this chapter the matching method is applied to find asymptotic solutions to some dynamical systems of ordinary differential equations whose solutions have multiscale time dependence.
* The second chapter, "Singularly Perturbed Problems with Boundary and Interior Layers: Theory and Application," offers a comprehensive overview of the theory and application of asymptotic approximations for many different kinds of problems in chemical physics governed by either ordinary or partial differential equations with boundary and interior layers.
* The third chapter, "Numerical Methods for Singularly Perturbed Boundary Value Problems Modeling Diffusion Processes," discusses the numerical difficulties that arise in solving the problems described in the first two chapters, and proposes rigorous criteria for determining whether or not a numerical method is satisfactory for such problems. Methods satisfying these criteria are then constructed and applied to obtain numerical solutions to a range of sample problems.
Timely, authoritative, and invaluable to researchers in all areas of chemical physics, Singular Perturbation Problems in Chemical Physics is an essential resource.

Author: Jean-Pierre Hansen
The third edition of Theory of Simple Liquids is an updated, advanced, but self-contained introduction to the principles of liquid-state theory. It presents the modern, molecular theory of the structural, thermodynamic interfacial and dynamical properties of the liquid phase of materials constituted of atoms, small molecules or ions. This book leans on concepts and methods form classical Statistical Mechanics in which theoretical predictions are systematically compared with experimental data and results from numerical simulations.
The overall layout of the book is similar to that of the previous two editions however, there are considerable changes in emphasis and several key additions including:
.up-to-date presentation of modern theories of liquid-vapour coexistence and criticality
.areas of considerable present and future interest such as super-cooled liquids and the glass transition
.the area of liquid metals, which has grown into a mature subject area, now presented as part of the chapter ionic liquids
.Provides cutting-edge research in the principles of liquid-state theory
.Includes frequent comparisons of theoretical predictions with experimental and simulation data
.Suitable for researchers and post-graduates in the field of condensed matter science (Physics, Chemistry, Material Science), biophysics as well as those in the oil industry

This text provides a comprehensive overview of the physical characteristics of polymers from random polymer chains and the statistical concepts of a gaussian chain to crystalline polymers and their kinetics. The main part of the book is concerned with the different physical states and phenomena which are characteristic of polymers. A summary of the most important experimental methods in polymer physics is included. Each chapter provides the reader with problems, for which solutions are given at the end of the book.

Author: Sven Larsson
A full understanding of modern chemistry is impossible without quantum theory. Since the advent of quantum mechanics in 1925, a number of chemical phenomena have been explained, such as electron transfer, excitation energy transfer, and other phenomena in photochemistry and photo-physics. Chemical bonds can now be accurately calculated with the help of a personal computer.
Addressing students of theoretical and quantum chemistry and their counterparts in physics, Chemical Physics: Electrons and Excitations introduces chemical physics as a gateway to fields such as photo physics, solid-state physics, and electrochemistry. Offering relevant background in theory and applications, it covers the foundations of quantum mechanics and molecular structure, as well as more specialized topics such as transfer reactions and photochemistry.

Author: David I. Bower
Assuming no previous knowledge of polymers, this book provides a general introduction to the physics of solid polymers. Covering a wide range of topics within the field of polymer physics, the book begins with a brief history of the development of synthetic polymers and an overview of the methods of polymerization and processing. In the following chapter, David Bower describes important experimental techniques used in the study of polymers. The main part of the book, however, is devoted to the structure and properties of solid polymers, including blends, copolymers and liquid crystal polymers.
