The approach to physical kinetics is closely integrated with that of other branches of physics as presented in the companion volumes of this series. The major part of the contents is concerned with a systematic development of the theory of plasmas, the authority being firmly rooted in the pioneer work of Landau. Although the main scope concerns fully ionized gaseous plasmas, corresponding results are also given for partially ionized plasmas, relativistic plasmas, degenerate or non-ideal plasmas and solid state plasmas. Problems (with answers) are to be found in the text. This work completes the Course of Theoretical Physics begun over 20 years ago

Seit Albert Einstein die Relativitatstheorie geschaffen hat. sind mehr als 60 Jahre vergangen. 1m Laufe der Zeit hat sich diese Theorie. die damals vielen nur als ein paradoxes Spiel des Verstandes erschien. zu einem Eckpfeiler der Physik entwickelt. Die moderne Physik ware ohne die Relativitatstheorie fast eben so undenkbar wie ohne die Vorstellung uber Atome und Mole kule. Es ist schwierig. aile physikalischen Erscheinungen auch nur aufzuzahlen. die ohne die Relativitatstheorie nicht erklart werden konnten. Auf dieser Theorie beruhen die Konstruktion solch komplizierter Gerate wie der Beschleuniger fUr Elementar teilchen. die Berechnung von Kernreaktionen usw. Leider aber ist die Relativitatstheorie auBerhalb eines recht engen Kreises von Spezialisten sehr wenig bekannt. Sie gehort allerdings auch zu den "schwierigsten Theorien", und man kann yom Nichtphysiker den Umgang mit ihrem komplizierten ma thematischen Apparat nicht verlangen. Dessenungeachtet glauben wir aber. daB man die Grundbe griffe und Ideen dieser Theorien in einer solchen Form darstellen kann, daB sie einem genugend groBen Kreis von Lesern ver standlich werden. Wir hoffen, daB der Leser nach der Lekture unseres Buches nicht zu der Meinung kommt. die Relativitatstheorie behaupte, "alles in der Welt sei relativ". 1m Gegenteil, er wird sehen, daB' die Relativitatstheorie, wie auch jede andere echte physikalische Theorie, eine Lehre uber die objektive Wirklichkeit ist. die nicht von den Wunschen und dem Geschmack eines einzelnen abhangt. Indem man sich von den alten Vorstellungen uber Raum, Zeit und Masse befreit, wird man einen tiefen Einblick in den wirk lichen Aufbau der Welt gewinnen.

Dieser Buchtitel ist Teil des Digitalisierungsprojekts Springer Book Archives mit Publikationen, die seit den Anfängen des Verlags von 1842 erschienen sind. Der Verlag stellt mit diesem Archiv Quellen für die historische wie auch die disziplingeschichtliche Forschung zur Verfügung, die jeweils im historischen Kontext betrachtet werden müssen. Dieser Titel erschien in der Zeit vor 1945 und wird daher in seiner zeittypischen politisch-ideologischen Ausrichtung vom Verlag nicht beworben.

A Concise Handbook of Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering Sciences takes a practical approach to the basic notions, formulas, equations, problems, theorems, methods, and laws that most frequently occur in scientific and engineering applications and university education. The authors pay special attention to issues that many engineers and students find difficult to understand. The first part of the book contains chapters on arithmetic, elementary and analytic geometry, algebra, differential and integral calculus, functions of complex variables, integral transforms, ordinary and partial differential equations, special functions, and probability theory. The second part discusses molecular physics and thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism, oscillations and waves, optics, special relativity, quantum mechanics, atomic and nuclear physics, and elementary particles. The third part covers dimensional analysis and similarity, mechanics of point masses and rigid bodies, strength of materials, hydrodynamics, mass and heat transfer, electrical engineering, and methods for constructing empirical and engineering formulas. The main text offers a concise, coherent survey of the most important definitions, formulas, equations, methods, theorems, and laws. Numerous examples throughout and references at the end of each chapter provide readers with a better understanding of the topics and methods. Additional issues of interest can be found in the remarks. For ease of reading, the supplement at the back of the book provides several long mathematical tables, including indefinite and definite integrals, direct and inverse integral transforms, and exact solutions of differential equations.

Statistical Physics of Non-Thermal Phase Transitions

From Foundations to Applications

This book addresses the application of methods used in statistical physics to complex systems—from simple phenomenological analogies to more complex aspects, such as correlations, fluctuation-dissipation theorem, the concept of free energy, renormalization group approach and scaling. Statistical physics contains a well-developed formalism that describes phase transitions. It is useful to apply this formalism for damage phenomena as well. Fractals, the Ising model, percolation, damage mechanics, fluctuations, free energy formalism, renormalization group, and scaling, are some of the topics covered in Statistical Physics of Phase Transitions.

Der Grundkurs Theoretische Physik deckt in sieben Bänden alle für Bachelor-, Master- oder Diplom-Studiengänge maßgeblichen Gebiete ab. Jeder Band vermittelt gut durchdacht das im jeweiligen Semester benötigte theoretisch-physikalische Wissen. Der 3. Band behandelt die Elektrodynamik in ihrer induktiven Formulierung. Mathematische Inhalte (Vektoranalysis) werden immer dann in den Text eingeschoben, wenn sie für das weitere Verständnis unverzichtbar sind. Der Band enthält in der 10. Auflage mehr als 200 Abbildungen, neue Übungsaufgaben und Lösungen und ist im Ganzen überarbeitet und aktualisiert worden.

Classical Electromagnetism in a Nutshell

Author: Anupam Garg

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 1400842751

Category: Science

Page: 712

View: 5453

This graduate-level physics textbook provides a comprehensive treatment of the basic principles and phenomena of classical electromagnetism. While many electromagnetism texts use the subject to teach mathematical methods of physics, here the emphasis is on the physical ideas themselves. Anupam Garg distinguishes between electromagnetism in vacuum and that in material media, stressing that the core physical questions are different for each. In vacuum, the focus is on the fundamental content of electromagnetic laws, symmetries, conservation laws, and the implications for phenomena such as radiation and light. In material media, the focus is on understanding the response of the media to imposed fields, the attendant constitutive relations, and the phenomena encountered in different types of media such as dielectrics, ferromagnets, and conductors. The text includes applications to many topical subjects, such as magnetic levitation, plasmas, laser beams, and synchrotrons. Classical Electromagnetism in a Nutshell is ideal for a yearlong graduate course and features more than 300 problems, with solutions to many of the advanced ones. Key formulas are given in both SI and Gaussian units; the book includes a discussion of how to convert between them, making it accessible to adherents of both systems. Offers a complete treatment of classical electromagnetism Emphasizes physical ideas Separates the treatment of electromagnetism in vacuum and material media Presents key formulas in both SI and Gaussian units Covers applications to other areas of physics Includes more than 300 problems

This volume provides a compact presentation of modern statistical physics at an advanced level. Beginning with questions on the foundations of statistical mechanics all important aspects of statistical physics are included, such as applications to ideal gases, the theory of quantum liquids and superconductivity and the modern theory of critical phenomena. Beyond that attention is given to new approaches, such as quantum field theory methods and non-equilibrium problems.
