 Book
Authors: Frenkel, Daan ; Smit, Berend (2002)  Understanding Molecular Simulation: From Algorithms to Applications explains the physics behind the "recipes" of molecular simulation for materials science. Computer simulators are continuously confronted with questions concerning the choice of a particular technique for a given application. A wide variety of tools exist, so the choice of technique requires a good understanding of the basic principles. More importantly, such understanding may greatly improve the efficiency of a simulation program. The implementation of simulation methods is illustrated in pseudocodes and their practical use in the case studies used in the text.
Since the first edition only five years ago, the simulat...

 Book
Authors:  (2005)  The ability to understand and control the unique properties of interfaces has created an entirely new field of magnetism which already has a profound impact in technology and is providing the basis for a revolution in electronics. The last decade has seen dramatic progress in the development of magnetic devices for information technology but also in the basic understanding of the physics of magnetic nanostructures. Volume III describes thin film magnetic properties and methods for characterising thin film structure topics that underpin the present 'spintronics' revolution in which devices are based on combined magnetic materials and semiconductors. The present volume (IV) deals with t...

 Book
Authors:  ()  The ability to understand and control the unique properties of interfaces has created an entirely new field of magnetism, with profound impact in technology and serving as the basis for a revolution in electronics. Understanding of the physics of magnetic nanostructures has also advanced significantly. This rapid development has generated a need for a comprehensive treatment that can serve as an introduction to the field for those entering it from diverse fields, but which will also serve as a timely overview for those already working in this area. The fourvolume work "UltraThin Magnetic Structures" aims to fulfill this dual need.

 Book
Authors: Honerkamp, J. ; Römer, H. (1993)  This textbook is a thorough introduction to classical theoretical physics. While concise in its use of terminology, the book is intended nonetheless toprovide the means to understand all the fundamentals of this field. Worked examples throughout the text and 39 problems help the student to become familiar with the physics presented here. In orderto avoid any bias, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, and fluid dynamicsare discussed in addition to classical mechanics and electrodynamics. After careful study of the book the student will be familiar with a wide variety of fields from advanced theoretical physics or applied physics.

 Book
Authors: Davies, J. H. (1998)  The composition of modern semiconductor heterostructures can be controlled precisely on the atomic scale to create lowdimensional systems. These systems have revolutionised semiconductor physics, and their impact on technology, particularly for semiconductor lasers and ultrafast transistors, is widespread and burgeoning. This book provides an introduction to the general principles that underlie lowdimensional semiconductors. As far as possible, simple physical explanations are used, with reference to examples from actual devices. The author shows how, beginning with fundamental results from quantum mechanics and solidstate physics, a formalism can be developed that describes the pr...

 Book
Authors: Zallen, R (2004)  An indepth study of noncrystalline solids in which the arrangement of the atoms do not have longrange order. Describes the way amorphous solids are formed, the phenomenology of the liquidtoglass and glass toliquid transition, and the technological applications. Emphasizes modern approaches such as scaling, localization, and percolation. Includes extensive treatment of structural aspects of amorphous solids, ranging from metallic glasses, to chalcogenides, to organic polymers. Incorporates illustrations for the clarification of physics concepts.

 Book
Authors: Guénault, Tony (1995)  In this revised and enlarged second edition of an established text Tony Guénault provides a clear and refreshingly readable introduction to statistical physics, an essential component of any first degree in physics. The treatment itself is selfcontained and concentrates on an understanding of the physical ideas, without requiring a high level of mathematical sophistication. A straightforward quantum approach to statistical averaging is adopted from the outset (easier, the author believes, than the classical approach). The initial part of the book is geared towards explaining the equilibrium properties of a simple isolated assembly of particles. Thus, several important topics, for exa...

 Book
Authors: Honerkamp, J. (1998)  The application of statistical methods to physics is essential. This unique book on statistical physics offers an advanced approach with numerous applications to the modern problems students are confronted with. Therefore the text contains more concepts and methods in statistics than the student would needed for statistical mechanics alone. Methods from mathematical statistics and stochastics for the analysis of data are discussed as well. The book is divided in two parts focusing first on the modelling of statistical systems then on the analysis of these systems. Problems with hints for solution help the students to deepen their knowledge.

 Book
Authors: Pathria, R. K. (1996)  This highly successful text, which first appeared in the year 1972 and has continued to be popular ever since, has now been brought uptodate by incorporating the remarkable developments in the field of 'phase transitions and critical phenomena' that took place over the intervening years. This has been done by adding three new chapters (comprising over 150 pages and containing over 60 homework problems) which should enhance the usefulness of the book for both students and instructors. We trust that this classic text, which has been widely acclaimed for its clean derivations and clear explanations, will continue to provide further generations of students a sound training in the method...
