New trends in Kramers' reaction rate theory by
Peter Talkner(
Book
)
12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The escape from metastable states via noiseassisted hopping and/or tunneling is pivotal to many scientific disciplines. It impacts on such diverse physical, chemical and biological processes as diffusion in solids, chemical reactions, nucleation phenomena and transfer of matter and information in biological systems. This volume surveys recent developments in the rate theory of both equilibrium and nonequilibrium processes. The understanding of the classical and quantummechanical concepts of this theory is deepened and extended in order to cope with various problems which, in particular, arise in complex systems. A wide range of applications are discussed such as correlated hops in periodic potentials, fluctuating barriers, transitions to limit cycles, discrete time dynamics, random walks on selfsimilar structures, and nonexponential decay in disordered systems is covered and profoundly discussed. For research workers and graduate students in chemistry, physics and biology with an interest in reaction rate theory

Activated barrier crossing : applications in physics, chemistry, and biology(
Book
)
8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The passage of a system from one minimum energy state to another via a potential energy barrier provides a model for the microscopic description of a wide range of physical, chemical and biological phenomena. Examples include diffusion of atoms in solids or on surfaces, flux transitions in superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs), isomerization reactions in solution, electron transfer processes, and ligand binding in proteins. In general, both tunneling and thermally activated barrier crossing may be involved in determining the rate. This book surveys key experiments chosen from physics, chemistry and biology, and describes theoretical methods appropriate for both classical and quantum barrier crossing. A major feature of the book is the attempt to integrate the experimental and theoretical work in one volume

Aspects of physical biology : biological water, protein solutions, transport and replication by
W Beiglböck(
)
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The application to Biology of the methodologies developed in Physics is attracting an increasing interest from the scientific community. It has led to the emergence of a new interdisciplinary field, called Physical Biology, with the aim of reaching a better understanding of the biological mechanisms at molecular and cellular levels. Statistical Mechanics in particular plays an important role in the development of this new field. For this reason, the XXth session of the famous Sitges Conference on Statistical Physics was dedicated to "Physical Biology: from Molecular Interactions to Cellular Behavior". As is by now tradition, a number of lectures were subsequently selected, expanded and updated for publication as lecture notes, so as to provide both a stateoftheart introduction and overview to a number of subjects of broader interest and to favor the interchange and crossfertilization of ideas between biologists and physicists. The present volume focuses on three main subtopics (biological water, protein solutions as well as transport and replication), presenting for each of the them the ongoing debates on recent results. The role of water in biological processes, the mechanisms of protein folding, the phases and cooperative effects in biological solutions, the thermodynamic description of replication, transport and neural activity, all are subjects that are revised in this volume, based on new experiments and new theoretical interpretations

Xray and neutron reflectivity : principles and applications by
W Beiglböck(
)
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book is the first comprehensive introduction to xray and neutron reflectivity techniques and illustrates them with many examples. After a pedagogical introduction, the interplay between the statistics of rough surfaces and interfaces and the scattering of radiation is considered in detail. Specular reflectivity and diffuse scattering are discussed next. The approximations are rigorously introduced and many experimental effects are discussed. In the case of neutron reflectivity, particular attention is paid to the reflectivity of polarized neutrons from magnetic multilayers, which allows the determination of inplane magnetization profiles. Many applications are reviewed in the second part: rough surfaces, interfaces and multilayers, liquid surfaces and softcondensed matter, and thin polymer films. In each case the underlying physics is first introduced, then specific experimental methods are described. The book addresses researchers and graduate students

Xray and Neutron Reflectivity : Principles and Applications by
W Beiglböck(
)
2 editions published in 2009 in Undetermined and English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the first comprehensive introduction to Xray and neutron reflectivity techniques and illustrates them with many examples. After a pedagogical introduction on the interaction of Xrays and neutrons with matter, the interplay between the statistics of rough surfaces and interfaces and the scattering of radiation is considered in detail. Specular reflectivity and diffuse scattering are discussed next , in chapters 3 and 4 . The approximations are rigorously introduced and many experimental effects are discussed. The specific aspects of neutron reflectivity require separate treatment, given in chapter 5. Chapter 6 turns to Xray reflectivity by rough multilayers. Eventually, chapter 7 introduces and discusses the by now wellestablished method of grazing incidence small angle Xray scattering to investigate nanostructures. For the second edition, the material has been completely reorganized so as to meet the demand for a modern multiauthor textbook for PhD students and young researchers. All chapters have further been throughly revised, updated and, where appropriate, suitably augmented. The first edition was been published as Lect. Notes Phys. m58 in the same series

A mathematical introduction to conformal field theory by
Martin Schottenloher(
)
3 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The first part of this book gives a detailed, selfcontained and mathematically rigorous exposition of classical conformal symmetry in n dimensions and its quantization in two dimensions. The second part surveys some more advanced topics of conformal field theory, such as the representation theory of the Virasoro algebra, conformal symmetry within string theory, an axiomatic approach to Euclidean conformally covariant quantum field theory and a mathematical interpretation of the Verlinde formula in the context of moduli spaces of holomorphic vector bundles on a Riemann surface." "The substantially revised and enlarged second edition makes in particular the second part of the book more selfcontained and tutorial, with many more examples given. Furthermore, two new chapters on Wightman's axioms for quantum field theory and vertex algebras broaden the survey of advanced topics. An outlook making the connection with most recent developments has also been added."Jacket

Jets from young stars III : numerical MHD and instabilities by
W Beiglböck(
)
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume contains the lecture notes of the Third JETSET School on Jets from Young Stars focussing on Numerical MHD and Instabilities. The introductory lectures presented here cover the basic concepts of the numerical methods for the integration of hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic equations and of the applications of these methods to the treatment of the instabilities relevant for the physics of stellar jets. The first part of the book contains an introduction to the finite difference and finite volume methods for computing the solutions of hyperbolic partial differential equations and a discussion of approximate Riemann solvers for both hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic problems. The second part is devoted to the discussion of some of the main instability processes that may take place in stellar jets, namely: the KelvinHelmholtz, the radiative shock, the pressure driven and the thermal instabilities." "Graduate students and young scientists will benefit from this book by learning how to use the fundamental tools used in computational astrophysical jet research."Jacket

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Hard spheres and related objects (hard disks and mixtures of hard systems) are paradigmatic systems: indeed, they have served as a basis for the theoretical and numerical development of a number of fields, such as general liquids and fluids, amorphous solids, liquid crystals, colloids and granular matter, to name but a few. The present volume introduces and reviews some important basics and progress in the study of such systems."BOOK JACKET
