Current at the Nanoscale: An Introduction to Nanoelectronics

by Colm Durkan

This second edition of the book, initially written as an introductory text dealing with how electric currents behave at the nanometer scale, begins with a general description of electric currents at the macroscale....


Phase Transitions: Modern Applications

by Moshe Gitterman

This book provides a comprehensive review of the theory of phase transitions and its modern applications, based on the five pillars of the modern theory of phase transitions: the Ising model, mean field, scaling,...


Thermal Energy at the Nanoscale

by Timothy S Fisher

These lecture notes provide a detailed treatment of the thermal energy storage and transport by conduction in natural and fabricated structures. Thermal energy in two carriers, i.e. phonons and electrons —...


40 Years of Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless Theory

by Jorge V José

On the 40th anniversary of the Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless Theory (BKT), this informative volume looks back at some of the developments and achievements and varied physics applications which ensued from...


Frontiers of 4d- and 5d-Transition Metal Oxides

Quantum Hall Effects: Recent Theoretical and Experimental Developments

by Zyun Francis Ezawa

Enthusiasm for research on the quantum Hall effect (QHE) is unbounded. The QHE is one of the most fascinating and beautiful phenomena in all branches of physics. Tremendous theoretical and experimental developments...


The Theory of the Quantum World

by David Gross, MARC HENNEAUX & ALEXANDER SEVRIN

Ever since 1911, the Solvay Conferences have shaped modern physics. The 25th edition held in October 2011 in Brussels and chaired by David Gross continued this tradition and celebrated the first centennial of...


Generalized Optomechanics and Its Applications: Quantum Optical Properties of Generalized Optomechanical System

by JIN-JIN LI & KA-DI ZHU

A mechanical oscillator coupled to the optical field in a cavity is a typical cavity optomechanical system. In our textbook, we prepare to introduce the quantum optical properties of optomechanical system, i.e....


Glassy Disordered Systems: Glass Formation and Universal Anomalous Low-Energy Properties

by MICHAEL I KLINGER

The present book describes the fundamental features of glassy disordered systems at high temperatures (close to the liquid-to-glass transition) and for the first time in a book, the universal anomalous properties...


Correlated Electrons in Quantum Matter

by Peter Fulde

An understanding of the effects of electronic correlations in quantum systems is one of the most challenging problems in physics, partly due to the relevance in modern high technology. Yet there exist hardly...
