Statistical Mechanics: Algorithms and Computations (Oxford by Werner Krauth

By Werner Krauth

This e-book discusses the computational technique in sleek statistical physics in a transparent and obtainable manner and demonstrates its shut relation to different techniques in theoretical physics. person chapters specialise in matters as varied because the challenging sphere liquid, classical spin types, unmarried quantum debris and Bose-Einstein condensation. Contained in the chapters are in-depth discussions of algorithms, starting from uncomplicated enumeration how to glossy Monte Carlo thoughts. The emphasis is on orientation, with dialogue of implementation info saved to a minimal. Illustrations, tables and concise published algorithms exhibit key details, making the fabric very available. The e-book is totally self-contained and graphs and tables can without difficulty be reproduced, requiring minimum laptop code. such a lot sections start at an ordinary point and lead directly to the wealthy and tough difficulties of latest computational and statistical physics. The ebook might be of curiosity to quite a lot of scholars, lecturers and researchers in physics and the neighbouring sciences. An accompanying CD permits incorporation of the book's content material (illustrations, tables, schematic courses) into the reader's personal shows.

The Silicon Web: Physics for the Internet Age by Michael G. Raymer

By Michael G. Raymer

The expertise at the back of desktops, fiber optics, and networks didn't originate within the minds of engineers trying to construct an online. the web is a fruits of highbrow paintings by way of millions of minds spanning hundreds of thousands of years. we've got equipped suggestion upon proposal and expertise upon expertise to reach at the place we're this present day, in a global built of silicon pathways and regulated by way of silicon processors.

From pcs to optical communications, The Silicon net: Physics for the web Age explores the middle rules of physics that underlie these applied sciences that proceed to revolutionize our daily lives. Designed for the nonscientist, this article calls for no greater math or previous event with physics. It starts off with an creation to physics, silicon, and the net after which info the fundamental physics ideas on the middle of the knowledge expertise revolution. a 3rd half examines the quantum period, with in-depth dialogue of electronic reminiscence and pcs. the ultimate half strikes onto the net period, overlaying lasers, optical fibers, mild amplification, and fiber-optic and instant verbal exchange applied sciences.

The relation among expertise and way of life is so intertwined that it's very unlikely to totally comprehend glossy human adventure with no need at the very least a easy knowing of the options and historical past at the back of glossy know-how, which keeps to develop into extra widely used in addition to extra ubiquitous. Going past the technical, the ebook additionally seems to be at ways that technological know-how has replaced the process background. It clarifies universal misconceptions whereas supplying perception at the social affects of technological know-how with an emphasis on details technology.

As a pioneering researcher in quantum mechanics of sunshine, writer Michael Raymer has made his personal major contributions to modern communications technology

Transition Metal Oxides by Harold H. Kung

By Harold H. Kung

During this e-book the writer provides an updated precis of current details at the constitution, digital houses, chemistry and catalytic homes of transition steel oxides. the themes lined within the ebook could be divided into 3 sections. the 1st (chapters 1 to three) covers the structural, actual, magnetic, and digital houses of transition steel oxides. even though the emphasis is on floor homes, correct bulk houses also are mentioned. the second one part (chapters four to 7) covers floor chemical houses. It comprises issues that describe the significance of floor coordinative unsaturation in adsorption, the formation of floor acidity and the position of acidity in opting for floor chemical houses, the character and reactivities of adsorbed oxygen, and the outside chemistry reduce oxides. The 3rd part (chapters eight to fourteen) is at the catalytic homes. a number of catalytic reactions together with decomposition, hydrogenation, isomerization, metathesis, selective oxidation, and reactions related to carbon oxides are mentioned. Emphasis is put extra on response mechanisms and the function of catalysts than on kinetics and techniques.
