Gauge fields in condensed matter physics by Hagen Kleinert

By Hagen Kleinert

This ebook is the 1st to improve a unified gauge conception of condensed topic platforms ruled via vortices or defects and their long-range interactions. Gauge fields give you the simply technique of describing those interactions when it comes to neighborhood fields, rendering them available to straightforward box theoretic thoughts. really very important examples, superfluid platforms and crystals, are handled in nice aspect. the speculation is built in shut touch with actual phenomena and evolves certainly from traditional descriptions of the structures. as well as gauge fields, the publication introduces the real new proposal of affliction fields for ensembles of line-like defects. The mixed box idea makes it possible for a brand new figuring out of the real section transitions superfluid ‘normal and reliable’ liquid. except the above, the ebook offers the overall differential geometry of defects in areas with curvature and torsion and establishes touch with the fashionable conception of gravity with torsion. This ebook is written for condensed topic physicists and box theorists. it may be used as a textbook for a second-year graduate direction or as supplementary analyzing for classes within the parts of condensed subject and sturdy nation physics, statistical mechanics, and box thought.

Great Solid State Physicists of the 20th Century by Julio A. Gonzalo, Carmen Arago Lopez

By Julio A. Gonzalo, Carmen Arago Lopez

The 20 th Century has been referred to as the Century of Physics. it may be much more acceptable to name it the Century of stable country Physics. the entire technological advancements which had replaced the area through the top of the century have been established upon earlier medical advancements in good nation Physics.

The Braggs, Debye, Bardeen, Landau have been definitely on the vanguard of all these innovative alterations.

Anomalous Effects in Simple Metals by Albert Overhauser, Gene Dresselhaus

By Albert Overhauser, Gene Dresselhaus

Utilizing potassium for instance, this paintings offers a different method of the anomalous results in metals, leading to wisdom that may be utilized to related fabrics.
so much theoretical predictions at the electrical, magnetic, optical, and thermal houses of an easy steel do ? strangely ? no longer trust experimental habit present in alkali metals. the aim of this quantity is to record the various phenomena that experience violated expectancies. It collects in a single position the study via Albert Overhauser, one of many pioneers of the sphere. His and his collaborators paintings has ended in a unified synthesis of alkali steel peculiarities. the original selection of sixty five reprint papers, commented the place essential to clarify the context and standpoint, is preceded by means of a radical and good paced introduction.
The ebook is intended to complicated reliable country physics and technology historians.
it might probably additionally function extra studying in complicated stable country physics courses.
With a foreword through Mildred and Gene Dresselhaus

Surfaces and Interfaces of Solid Materials by Professor Dr. Hans Lüth (auth.)

By Professor Dr. Hans Lüth (auth.)

Surfaces and Interfaces of Solids emphasises either experimental and theoretical points of floor and interface physics. Beside the strategies of getting ready well-defined stable surfaces and interfaces easy types for the outline of structural, vibronic and digital homes of interfaces are defined, in addition to primary points of adsorption and layer development. as a result of its significance for contemporary microelectronics unique emphasis is put on the digital houses of semiconductor interfaces and heterostructures. Experimental subject matters overlaying the fundamentals of ultrahigh-vacuum expertise, electron optics, floor spectroscopies and electric interface characterization thoughts are provided within the type of separate panels.

The physics of superconductors. Introduction to fundamentals by Schmidt V.V.

By Schmidt V.V.

This contemporary creation to the physics of superconductors was once edited via Paul Müller, (Walter Schottky Award for Solid-state examine) and Alexey V. Ustinov, either on the college of Erlangen. The revised and enlarged textual content is predicated on a lecture direction given by way of V.V. Schmidt on the Moscow Institute of metal and Alloys. It presents a contemporary therapy of the physics of superconductors with specified recognition paid to the actual interpretation of the phenomena. This English version has been enlarged by means of the inclusion of such new advancements as high-temperature superconductivity, and, as such, is the main updated textbook to be had at the topic. various issues of strategies aid the scholar to familiarize yourself with this box.

Room-Temperature Superconductivity by Andrei Mourachkine

By Andrei Mourachkine

This is the 1st booklet with reference to room-temperature superconductivity. the most function of the e-book is twofold. First, to teach that, lower than appropriate stipulations, superconductivity can ensue above room temperature. moment, to offer basic guidance the best way to synthesize a room-temperature superconductor. The booklet starts off with an advent into the physics of the superconducting nation and superconducting fabrics. Then, the mechanisms of traditional, half-conventional and unconventional superconductivity are mentioned within the following chapters. The final 3 chapters of the booklet are dedicated to room-temperature superconductivity. In bankruptcy 2, an try to overview the fundamental homes of the superconducting nation independently of any particular mechanism is made for the 1st time. additionally, 4 ideas of superconductivity legitimate for any kind of superconductivity are brought in bankruptcy four.
