Problems of linear electron (polaron) transport theory in semiconductors by
Michael I Klinger(
Book
)
6 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Problems of Linear Electron (Polaron) Transport Theory in Semiconductors summarizes and discusses the development of areas in electron transport theory in semiconductors, with emphasis on the fundamental aspects of the theory and the essential physical nature of the transport processes. The book is organized into three parts. Part I focuses on some general topics in the theory of transport phenomena: the general dynamical theory of linear transport in dissipative systems (Kubo formulae) and the phenomenological theory. Part II deals with the theory of polaron transport in a crystalline semicon

Fluid mechanics by
L. D Landau(
Book
)
33 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the most comprehensive introductory graduate or advanced undergraduate text in fluid mechanics available. It builds up from the fundamentals, often in a general way, to widespread applications, to technology and geophysics. New to this second edition are discussions on the universal dimensions similarity scaling for the laminar boundary layer equations and on the generalized vector field derivatives. In addition, new material on the generalized streamfunction treatment shows how streamfunction may be used in threedimensional flows. Finally, a new Computational Fluid Dynamics chapter enables compulations of some simple flows and provides entry to more advanced literature. *Basic introduction to the subject of fluid mechanics, intended for undergraduate and beginning graduate students of science and engineering. *Includes topics of special interest for geophysicists and to engineers. *New and generalized treatment of similar laminar boundary layers, streamfunctions for threedimensional flows, vector field derivatives, and gas dynamics. Also a new generalized treatment of boundary conditions in fluid mechanics, and expanded treatment of viscous flows.  taken from Amazon.com®

Dynamics of stellar systems by
K. F Ogorodnikov(
Book
)
3 editions published between 1965 and 1968 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dynamics of Stellar Systems discusses the basic principles that support stellar dynamics. The book is comprised of 10 chapters that present the general principles on which it is based and how the modern conceptions of motions in stellar systems can be derived. The text first discusses the fundamentals concepts of stellar statistics, and then proceeds to detailing the kinematics of stellar systems. The next chapter covers the elementary theory of galactic rotation. Next, the book tackles the irregular forces in stellar systems. Chapter V talks about the statistical stellar dynamics neglecting e

Landau, the physicist and the man : recollections of L.D. Landau(
Book
)
6 editions published in 1989 in English and Slave and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The name of Lev Davidovich Landau is widely known as that of one of the greatest twentiethcentury physicists. A brilliant teacher to those pupils he carefully chose, notoriously controversial in his outlook and opinions, the combination of his outstanding intellect and striking personality brought him almost legendary fame. This volume contains letters, papers and recollections by friends and pupils, describing Landau's views of science, culture and life, and provides the reader with a vivid portrait of a remarkable man
