This Second Edition is aimed at students taking a firstcourse in this subject, although it will also be of interest toprofessional physicists and electronic engineers requiring a graspof the fundamentals of this important area of physics. Basicconcepts are introduced in an easily accessible context: forexample, wave propagation in crystals is introduced using one-andtwo-dimensional geometries. Only when these basic ideas arefamiliar are generalisations to three dimensions and the elegantframework of the reciprocal lattice made. Extensively rewritten,the Second Edition now includes new and expanded coverage ofsemiconductor devices, the quantum Hall effect, quasicrystals, hightemperature superconductors and techniques for the study of thesurfaces of solids. A chapter on dielectrics and ferroelectrics hasalso been added. Solid State Physics, Second Edition features: A carefully written and structured text to help students fullyunderstand this exciting subject. A flow diagram allowing topics to be studied in differentorders or omitted altogether. Optional "starred" and highlighted sections containing moreadvanced and specialised material for the more ambitiousreader. Carefully selected problems at the end of each chapter designedto assist learning. Solutions are provided at the end of thebook.

Prominence is given to the Gibbs distribution, leading to a simple treatment of quantum statistics and of chemical reactions. Undergraduate students of physics and related sciences will find this a stimulating account of the basic physics and its applications. Only an elementary knowledge of kinetic theory and atomic physics, as well as the rudiments of quantum theory, are presupposed for an understanding of this book. Statistical Physics, Second Edition features: A fully integrated treatment of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics.

Die große Stärke des Ashcroft liegt in den ausführlichen Erklärungen, die didaktisch geschickt aufeinander aufbauen. Tiefer gehende quantenmechanische Rechnungen werden vermieden. Stattdessen wird mit logischer Klarheit und sehr geschickt ein anschauliches Bild der Festkörperphysik entwickelt, das dem Anfänger in der Festkörperphysik den Einstieg in das schwierige Fach erleichtert. Das Buch fängt mit klassischen Erklärungsmodellen des Festkörpers an, zeigt deren Begrenztheit auf und führt die Quantenmechanik schrittweise ein, um die Modelle immer weiter zu verfeinern. So entsteht mit einem Minimum an mathematischem Rüstzeug ein ausgesprochen detailliertes Bild des Festkörpers, und dem Leser wird es durch die allmähliche Steigerung zu abstrakteren Theorien leicht gemacht, sich von den Autoren führen zu lassen. Auf die ausführliche Beschreibung experimenteller Arbeiten wird in diesem Buch verzichtet. Das heißt aber nicht, dass auf experimentelle Ergebnisse kein Bezug genommen wird. Stets werden die Theorien an den experimentellen Werten gemessen und existierende Abweichungen zum Anlass für tiefergehende Betrachtungen genommen.

For some time there has been a need for a semiconductor device book that carries diode and transistor theory beyond an introductory level and yet has space to touch on a wider range of semiconductor device principles and applica tions. Such topics are covered in specialized monographs numbering many hun dreds, but the voluminous nature of this literature limits access for students. This book is the outcome of attempts to develop a broad course on devices and integrated electronics for university students at about senior-year level. The edu cational prerequisites are an introductory course in semiconductor junction and transistor concepts, and a course on analog and digital circuits that has intro duced the concepts of rectification, amplification, oscillators, modulation and logic and SWitching circuits. The book should also be of value to professional engineers and physicists because of both, the information included and the de tailed guide to the literature given by the references. The aim has been to bring some measure of order into the subject area examined and to provide a basic structure from which teachers may develop themes that are of most interest to students and themselves. Semiconductor devices and integrated circuits are reviewed and fundamental factors that control power levels, frequency, speed, size and cost are discussed. The text also briefly mentions how devices are used and presents circuits and comments on representative applications. Thus, the book seeks a balance be tween the extremes of device physics and circuit design.

"The aim of this textbook is to equip the reader with an in-depth knowledge of energy generation that transcends current conventional methods of extracting from fossil fuels. Each chapter contains thorough analyses into alternative energy generation, focussing on the physical principles, commonalities and complementary features, in addition to basic thermodynamic considerations, of energy sources and techniques, including: - Nuclear Power - fission, fusion, plasma heating, magnetic confinement and radiation - Solar Power - fusion in stars, proton-proton cycle and blackbody radiation - Wind Power -- production and efficiency - Water Power -- wave motion - Hydroelectric/geothermal power The Physics of Energy Sources includes well-informed estimates of future global energy requirements and consumption, including efficiency levels of power production, energy transportation and storage relative to the function of time. Important environmental issues are tackled through discussions about the advantages and disadvantages of each method. The worked examples, sets of problems and worked solutions act as valuable references for both student and professional"--

Phillips Computing for Scientists R. J. Barlow and A. R. Barnett Quantum Mechanics aims to teach those parts of the subject which every physicist should know. The object is to display the inherent structure of quantum mechanics, concentrating on general principles and on methods of wide applicability without taking them to their full generality. This book will equip students to follow quantum-mechanical arguments in books and scientific papers, and to cope with simple cases. To bring the subject to life, the theory is applied to the all-important field of atomic physics. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics is assumed. However, it would help most readers to have met some elementary wave mechanics before. Primarily written for students, it should also be of interest to experimental research workers who require a good grasp of quantum mechanics without the full formalism needed by the professional theorist. Quantum Mechanics features: A flow diagram allowing topics to be studied in different orders or omitted altogether. Optional "starred" and highlighted sections containing more advanced and specialized material for the more ambitious reader. Sets of problems at the end of each chapter to help student understanding. Hints and solutions to the problems are given at the end of the book.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

It concentrates on parameter estimation, especially the methods of Least Squares and Maximum Likelihood, but other techniques, such as hypothesis testing, Bayesian statistics and non-parametric methods are also included. Intended for reasonably numerate scientists it contains all the basic formulae, their derivations and applications, together with some more advanced ones. Statistics features: * Comprehensive coverage of the essential techniques physical scientists are likely to need. * A wealth of examples, and problems with their answers. * Flexible structure and organisation allows it to be used as a course text and a reference. * A review of the basics, so that little prior knowledge is required.
