A series of personal and historical encounters with surrealism from one of its foremost practitioners in the United States. ´´A marvelous, meticulous exploration of the surrealist experience, in all its infinite variety.´´--Gerome Kamrowski.wski.
Detailed and self-contained, this text supplements its rigor with intuitive ideas and is geared toward beginning graduate students and advanced undergraduates. Topics include principal fiber bundles and connections; curvature; particle fields, Lagrangians, and gauge invariance; inhomogeneous field equations; free Dirac electron fields; calculus on frame bundle; and unification of gauge fields and gravitation. 1981 edition
This is the second edition of a widely used practical guide to computer simulations of liquids. The technique uses a model for the way molecules interact, to predict how large numbers of them behave in liquid state. This essential introduction to this rapidly growing field is complete with illustrative computer code.
The quest for efficient and durable battery technologies is one of the key challenges for enabling the transition to renewable energy economies. This text comprehensively outlines the scientific and technical challenges in the field, covering anodes, cathodes, electrolytes, and particularly promising systems such as the Mg-S cell.
This book presents a collection of selected reviews from PLMMP 2018 that address modern problems in the fields of liquids, solutions and confined systems, critical phenomena, as well as colloidal and biological systems. The papers focus on state-of-the-art developments in the contemporary physics of liquid matter, and are divided into four parts: (i) water and water systems, (ii) physical-chemical properties of liquid systems, (iii) aggregation in liquid systems, and (iv) biological aspects of liquid systems, irradiation influences on liquid systems. Taken together, they cover the latest developments in the broader field of liquid states, including interdisciplinary problems.
The study of the electronic structure of materials is at a momentous stage, with the emergence of new computational methods and theoretical approaches. Many properties of materials can now be determined directly from the fundamental equations of quantum mechanics, bringing new insights into critical problems in physics, chemistry, and materials science. This volume provides an introduction to the field and describes its conceptual framework, the capabilities of present methods, limitations, and challenges for the future. Each chapter presents thoughtful exercises to emphasize salient points and to challenge the readers understanding.
