    Principles of Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry

    Edition: First printing

    New York: Oxford University Press, 1995. Brown cloth. pp (324). Index. Fine copy. In print at USD 172.95 (2019). "This undergraduate text provides an introduction to the basic principles of atmospheric physics and chemistry. It allows a physics or chemistry undergraduate, without previous knowledge of the subject, to enter the subject at a fairly advanced level. It is a comprehensive text outlining the subject from the formation of the solar system to the present state of the atmosphere. All aspects of the lower and middle atmospheres, except for large-scale dynamics, are treated in a connected account as ultimate consequences of the solar radiation falling on the planet." ; Octavo 0195093623

    New York: Springer, 1983. Brown cloth, pp 290, indexed. Small corner bruise at head of spine, else fine, no owner names. In this final volume I have tried to present the subject of statistical mechanics in accordance with the basic principles of the series. The effort again entailed following Gustav Mahler's maxim, "Tradition = Schlamperei" (i.e., filth) and clearing away a large portion of this tradition-laden area. The result is a book with little in common with most other books on the subject. The ordinary perturbation-theoretic calculations are not very useful in this field. Those methods have never led to propositions of much substance. Even when perturbation series, which for the most part never converge, can be given some…

In this final volume I have tried to present the subject of statistical mechanics in accordance with the basic principles of the series. The effort again entailed following Gustav Mahler's maxim, "Tradition = Schlamperei" (i.e., filth) and clearing away a large portion of this tradition-laden area. The result is a book with little in common with most other books on the subject. The ordinary perturbation-theoretic calculations are not very useful in this field. Those methods have never led to propositions of much substance. Even when perturbation series, which for the most part never converge, can be given some asymptotic meaning, it cannot be determined how close the nth order approximation comes to the exact result. Since analytic solutions of nontrivial problems are beyond human capabilities, for better or worse we must settle for sharp bounds on the quantities of interest, and can at most strive to make the degree of accuracy satisfactory. Last volume in the series.; Octavo 0387817018

    Self-Dual Chern-Simons Theories

    Berlin: Springer, 1995. Yellow and orange boards. pp 217. Lecture Notes in Physics Monographs series. Fine copy, no owner marks. Self-dual Chern-Simons theories form a new class of self-dual gauge theories and provide a field theoretical formulation of anyonic excitations in planar (i.e., two-space-dimensional) systems. Much of the recent attention of these theories is due to the surprising and novel ways in which they differ from the standard Maxwell, or Yang-Mills, gauge theories. These Chern-Simons theories are particular to planar systems and have therefore received added research impetus from recent experimental and theoretical breakthroughs in actual planar condensed-matter systems, such as the quantum Hall effect. This book gives a pedagogical introduction to the basic properties of the "self-dual" Chern-Simons…

These Chern-Simons theories are particular to planar systems and have therefore received added research impetus from recent experimental and theoretical breakthroughs in actual planar condensed-matter systems, such as the quantum Hall effect. This book gives a pedagogical introduction to the basic properties of the "self-dual" Chern-Simons theories, concluding with an overview of more advanced results and an extensive bibliography. Such models possess Bogomol'nyi energy bounds, topological charges, vortex solutions, and supersymmetric extensions, features which are familiar from other well-known self-dual systems such as instantons, monopoles, and vortices. This book is intended mainly for graduate students having some familiarity with gauge theory, but will also be of interest to researchers in related fields.; Octavo 3540602577

Thompson's most enduring publication is his 1910 text Calculus Made Easy, which teaches the fundamentals of infinitesimal calculus, and is still in print. Thompson also wrote a popular physics text, Elementary Lessons in Electricity and Magnetism, as well as biographies of Lord Kelvin and Michael Faraday." - Wikipedia. Technical education, light and optics, and electromagnetism were major interests. He made an important contribution to the working of the submarine telegraphic cable and gave the first public demonstration of the newly discovered X-rays. He was also an active Quaker; Octavo

An active and productive field of research, it has important applications in fluid mechanics, nonlinear optics, classical and quantum fields theories etc..This book presents a broad view of soliton theory. It gives an expository survey of the most basic ideas and methods, such as physical background, inverse scattering, Bäcklund transformations, finite-dimensional completely integrable systems, symmetry, Kac-Moody algebra, solitons and differential geometry, numerical analysis for nonlinear waves, and gravitational solitons. Besides the essential points of the theory, several applications are sketched and some recent developments, partly by the author and his collaborators, are…
