Title:Nucleation Theory [electronic resource]
Author(s): V.I Kalikmanov
Date:2013
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph covers the major available routes of theoretical research of nucleation phenomenaphenomenological models, semi-phenomenological theories, density functional theories and microscopic approacheswithemphasis on the formation of liquid dro plets from a metastable vapor. It also illustrates the application of these various approaches to experimentally relevantproblems. In spite of familiarity with the involved phenomena, it is still not possible to accurately calculate nucleation rate, as t he properties of thedaughter phase are insufficiently known. Existing theories based upon the classical nucleation theory have on the whole explained the trends in behavior correctly. However, they often fail spectacularly to account for new data, inparti cular in the case of binary or, more generally, multi-component nucleation. This book challenges such classical models and provides a more satisfactory description by using density functional theory and microscopic computersimulations to describe the prop erties of small clusters. Also, semi-phenomenological models are proposed that relate the properties of small clusters to known properties of the bulk phases. This monograph is anintroduction as well as a compendium to researchers in the areas of soft con densed matter physics, chemical physics, graduate and post-graduate students in physics and chemistry starting on research in the area of nucleation, and toexperimentalists wishing to gain a better understanding of the recent developments being made to ac count for their data

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The advent of laser cooling of atoms led to the discovery of ultra-cold matter, with temperatures below liquid Helium, which displays a variety of new physical phenomena. Physics of Ultra-Cold Matter gives an overview of thisrecent area of science, w ith a discussion of its main results and a description of its theoretical concepts and methods. Ultra-cold matter can be considered in three distinct phases: ultra-cold gas, Bose Einstein condensate, andRydberg plasmas. This book gives an integrated view of this new area of science at the frontier between atomic physics, condensed matter, and plasma physics. It describes these three distinct phases while exploring the differences, aswell as the sometimes unexpected similarities, of their respective theore tical methods. This book is an informative guide for researchers, and the benefits are a result from an integrated view of a very broad area of research, which islimited in previous books about this subject. The main unifying tool explored in this book is the wave kinetic theory based on Wigner functions. Other theoretical approaches, eventually more familiar to the reader, are also given forextension and comparison. The book considers laser cooling techniques, atom-atom interactions, and focuses on the e lementary excitations and collective oscillations in atomic clouds, Bose-Einstein condensates, and Rydberg plasmas.Linear and nonlinear processes are considered, including Landau damping, soliton excitation and vortices. Atomic interferometers and quantum coherence are also included

Title:Density Functional Theory [electronic resource] : An Advanced Course

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Density Functional Theory (DFT) has firmly established itself as the workhorse for the atomic-level simulation of condensed matter phases, pure or composite materials and quantum chemical systems. The present book is a rigorousand detailed introducti on to the foundations up to and including such advanced topics as orbital-dependent functionals and both time-dependent and relativistic DFT. Given the many ramifications of contemporary DFT, this textconcentrates on the self-contained presentation of the basics of the most widely used DFT variants. This implies a thorough discussion of the corresponding existence theorems and effective single particle equations, as well as of keyapproximations utilized in implementations. The formal results are complemen ted by selected quantitative results, which primarily aim at illustrating strengths and weaknesses of a particular approach or functional. DFT forsuperconducting or nuclear and hadronic systems are not addressed in this work. The structure and material co ntained in this book allow for a tutorial and modular self-study approach: the reader will find that all concepts of many-bodytheory which are indispensable for the discussion of DFT - such as the single-particle Greens function or response functions - ar e introduced step by step, rather than just used. The same applies to some basic notions of solid statetheory, as, for instance, the Fermi surface. Also, the language of second quantization is introduced systematically in an Appendix for readers without a formal theoretical physics background

Note:A major challenge in the modeling and simulation of tumor growth is the mathematical description of living matter, which is far more complex than a mathematical description of inert matter. One critical piece of this challenge iscreating multiscale m odels that take into account subcellular, cellular, and macroscopic levels of cancer. The complexity of these different levels requires the development of new mathematical methods and ideas, which are examined inthis work. Written by first-rate researcher s in the field of mathematical biology, this collection of selected chapters offers a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art mathematical methods and tools for modeling and analyzingcancer phenomena. Topics covered include: * Genetic and epigenetic pa thways to colon cancer * A game theoretical perspective on the somatic evolution of cancer * Nonlinear modeling and simulation of tumor growth * Tumor cords and theirresponse to anticancer agents * Modeling diffusely invading brain tumors * Multiphase mod els of tumor growth * Mathematical modeling of breast carcinogenesis * Predictive models in tumor immunology * Multiscale modeling of solid tumorgrowth Selected Topics in Cancer Modeling is an excellent reference for researchers, practitioners, and gradua te students in applied mathematics, mathematical biology, and related fields.

Note:Using tools from mathematical kinetic theory and stochastic game theory, this work deals with the modeling of large complex systems in the applied sciences, particularly those comprised of several interacting individuals whosedynamics follow rules de termined by some organized, or even intelligent ability. Traditionally, methods of mathematical kinetic theory have been applied to model the evolution of large systems of interacting classical or quantumparticles. This book, on the other hand, examines t he modeling of living systems as opposed to inert systems. The author develops new mathematical methods and toolshopefully a new mathematicstoward the modeling of livingsystems. Such tools need to be far more complex than those dealing with systems of ine rt matter. The first part of the book deals with deriving general evolution equations that can be customized to particular systems of interest in theapplied sciences. The second part of the book deals with various models and applications. The presentation unfolds using the following common approach in each chapter: * Phenomenological interpretation of the physical system in thecontext of mathematical modeling * Derivation of the mathematical model using methods from mathematical kinetic theory for active particles * Simulations, parameter sensitivity analysis, and critical inspection of the derived modeltowards validation * Overview of presented ideas to improve existing models, with special emphasis on applications Specific topics covered include: * Mode ling of the competition between cells of an aggressive invasive agent and cellsof the immune system * Modeling of vehicular traffic flow * Modeling of swarms and crowd dynamics in complex geometric environments * Methodological aspects related to multisca le modeling of large systems viewed as interconnectedsubsystems Modeling Complex Living Systems is a valuable resource for applied mathematicians, engineers, physicists, biologists, economists

Title:From Microphysics to Macrophysics [electronic resource] : Methods and Applications of Statistical Physics
Author(s): Roger Balian
Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text not only provides a thorough introduction to statistical physics and thermodynamics but also exhibits the universality of the chain of ideas that leads from the laws of microphysics to the macroscopic behaviour ofmatter. A wide range of app lications teaches students how to make use of the concepts, and many exercises will help to deepen their understanding. Drawing on both quantum mechanics and classical physics, the book follows modernresearch in statistical physics. Volume I discusses in detail the probabilistic description of quantum or classical systems, the Boltzmann-Gibbs distributions, the conservation laws, and the interpretation of entropy as missinginformation. Thermodynamics and electromagnetism in matter are dealt with, as well as applications to gases, both dilute and condensed, and to phase transitions. Volume II applies statistical methods to systems governed by quantumeffects, in particular to solid state physics, explaining properties due to the crystal structure or to the lattice excitations or to the electrons. Liquid helium is discussed and radiative equilibrium and transport are studied. Thelast chapters are devoted to non-equilibrium processes and to kinetic equations, with many applications included. This softcover ed ition accommodates the many requests to make this widely used and often cited classical text availableagain

Title:Flux Pinning in Superconductors [electronic resource]
Author(s): Teruo Matsushita
Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book covers the flux pinning mechanisms and properties and the electromagnetic phenomena caused by the flux pinning common for metallic, high-Tc and MgB2 superconductors. The condensation energy interaction known for normalprecipitates or grain b oundaries and the kinetic energy interaction proposed for artificial Nb pins in Nb-Ti, etc., are introduced for the pinning mechanism. Summation theories to derive the critical current density are discussed indetail. Irreversible magnetization and AC loss caused by the flux pinning are also discussed. The loss originally stems from the ohmic dissipation of normal electrons in the normal core driven by the electric field induced by the fluxmotion. The readers will learn why the resultant loss is of hystere sis type in spite of such mechanism. The influence of the flux pinning on the vortex phase diagram in high Tc superconductors is discussed, and the dependencies of theirreversibility field are also described on other quantities such as anisotropy of super conductor, specimen size and electric field strength. Recent developments of critical current properties in various high-Tc superconductors andMgB2 are introduced. Other topics are: singularity in the case of transport current in a parallel magnetic field such as deviation from the Josephson relation, reversible flux motion inside pinning potentials which causes deviationfrom the critical state model prediction, the concept of the minimization of energy dissipation in the flux pinning phenomena which give s the basis for the critical state model, etc. Significant reduction in the AC loss in AC wireswith very fine filaments originates from the reversible flux motion which is dominant in the two-dimensional pinning. The concept of minimum energy dissipation explains also the behavior of flux bundle size which determines theirreversibility line under the flux creep

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The completely revised new edition of the classical book on Statistical Mechanics covers the basic concepts of equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical physics. In addition to a deductive approach to equilibrium statistics andthermodynamics based on a single hypothesis - the form of the microcanonical density matrix - this book treats the most important elements of non-equilibrium phenomena. Intermediate calculations are presented in complete detail.Problems at the end of each chapter help student s to consolidate their understanding of the material. Beyond the fundamentals, this text demonstrates the breadth of the field and its great variety of applications. Modern areas such asrenormalization group theory, percolation, stochastic equations of mo tion and their applications to critical dynamics, kinetic theories, as well as fundamental considerations of irreversibility, are discussed. The text will be usefulfor advanced students of physics and other natural sciences a basic knowledge of quantum me chanics is presumed

Title:Mathematical Modeling of Complex Biological Systems [electronic resource] : A Kinetic Theory Approach

Marcello Delitala
Date:2006
Publisher:Boston, MA : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book describes the evolution of several socio-biological systems using mathematical kinetic theory. Specifically, it deals with modeling and simulations of biological systemscomprised of large populations of interactingcellswhose dynamics follow the rules of mechanics as well as rules governed by their own ability to organize movement and biological functions. The authors propose a new biological model for the analysis of competition between cellsof an aggressive host and cells of a correspondin g immune system. Because the microscopic description of a biological system is far more complex than that of a physical system of inert matter, a higher level of analysis is needed todeal with such complexity. Mathematical models using kinetic theory may represent a way to deal with such complexity, allowing for an understanding of phenomena of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics not described by the traditionalmacroscopic approach. The proposed models are related to the generalized Boltzmann equation an d describe the population dynamics of several interacting elements (kinetic population models). The particular models proposed by the authorsare based on a framework related to a system of integro-differential equations, defining the evolution of the dist ribution function over the microscopic state of each element in a given system. Macroscopic information on the behaviorof the system is obtained from suitable moments of the distribution function over the microscopic states of the elements involved. The b ook follows a classical research approach applied to modeling real systems, linking the observationof biological phenomena, collection of experimental data, modeling, and computational simulations to validate the proposed models. Qualitative analysis tech niques are used to identify the prediction ability of specific models. The bookwill be a valuable resource for applied mathematicians as well as researchers in the field of biological sciences. It

Title:Models for Polymeric andAnisotropic Liquids [electronic resource]

Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Models should be as simple as possible, but no simpler. For the physics of polymeric liquids, whose relevant lengths and time scales are out of reach for first principles calculations, this means that we have to choose a minimumset of sufficiently de tailed descriptors such as architecture (linear, ring, branched), connectivity, semiflexibility, stretchability, excluded volume, and hydrodynamic interaction. These 'universal' fluids allow the prediction ofmaterial properties under external flow- or ele ctrodynamic fields, the results being expressed in terms of reference units, specific for any particular chosen material. This book provides an introduction to the kinetic theory andcomputer simulation methods needed to handle these models and to interpre t the results. Also included are a number of sample applications and computer codes

Note:Phase transitions in disordered systems and related dynamical phenomena are a topic of intrinsically high interest in theoretical and experimental physics. This book presents a unified view, adopting concepts from each of thedisjoint fields of disord ered systems and nonlinear dynamics. Special attention is paid to the glass transition, from both experimental and theoretical viewpoints, to modern concepts of pattern formation, and to the application of theconcepts of dynamical systems for understandin g equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties of fluids and solids. The content is accessible to graduate students, but will also be of benefit to specialists, since the presentation extendsas far as the topics of ongoing research work
