Deriving the electron kinetic theory to describe low temperature plasmas created in the laboratory with an electrical discharge, this book presents the main optical spectroscopic diagnostics used to characterize such plasmas. These are then presented from the point of view of a Statistical and Plasma Physics and b Atomic and...
By G. C. Layek
The book discusses continuous and discrete systems in systematic and sequential approaches for all aspects of nonlinear dynamics. The unique feature of the book is its mathematical theories on flow bifurcations, oscillatory solutions, symmetry analysis of nonlinear systems and chaos theory. The logically structured content and sequential orientation provide readers...
Presents a unifying approach to the physics of chaos, nonlinear systems, dynamic networks, evolutionary dynamics, econophysics, and the theory of relativity. Each chapter has many worked examples and simple computer simulations that allow the student to explore the rich phenomena of nonlinear physics.
Fractional Kinetics In Solids: Anomalous Charge Transport In Semiconductors, Dielectrics And Nanosystems
The standard Markovian transport model based on the Boltzmann equation cannot describe some non-equilibrium processes called anomalous that take place in many disordered solids. This book applies a novel approach using equations with derivatives of fractional orders to describe anomalous transport and relaxation in disordered semiconductors.

With a focus on the relationship between quantum mechanics and social science, this book introduces the main ideas of number operators while avoiding excessive technicalities that aren't necessary in understanding the various mathematical applications.

Emphasizing physical principles behind classical mechanics and relativity, this new title in the Manchester Physics Series introduces relevant mathematics and carefully develops it as needed within a physics context. Each chapter includes problems ranging in difficulty from simple to challenging with hints for solving problems.
