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 noise-assisted 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 quantum-mechanical 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
The Cambridge N-body lectures by W Beiglböck( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published under the auspices of the Royal Astronomical Society, this volume contains a set of extensive school tested lectures, with the aim to give a coherent and thorough background knowledge of the subject and to introduce the latest developments in N-body computational astrophysics. The topics cover a wide range from the classical few-body problem with discussions of resonance, chaos and stability to realistic modelling of star clusters as well as descriptions of codes, algorithms and special hardware for N-body simulations. This collection of topics, related to the gravitational N-body problem, will prove useful to both students and researchers in years to come
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 state-of-the-art introduction and overview to a number of subjects of broader interest and to favor the interchange and cross-fertilization 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 on-going 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
Work Fluctuations, Entanglement and Interference in Driven Open Quantum Systems by Ralf Blattmann( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

X-ray 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 x-ray 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 in-plane magnetization profiles. Many applications are reviewed in the second part: rough surfaces, interfaces and multilayers, liquid surfaces and soft-condensed 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

X-ray 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 X-ray and neutron reflectivity techniques and illustrates them with many examples. After a pedagogical introduction on the interaction of X-rays 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 X-ray reflectivity by rough multilayers. Eventually, chapter 7 introduces and discusses the by now well-established method of grazing incidence small angle X-ray scattering to investigate nanostructures. For the second edition, the material has been completely reorganized so as to meet the demand for a modern multi-author 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, self-contained 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 self-contained 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 Kelvin-Helmholtz, 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 astro-physical jet research."--Jacket

Theory and simulation of hard-sphere fluids and related systems by W Beiglböck( )

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
