Title  Solid State Theory, Volume 2 : Applications: Nonequilibrium, Behavior in External Fields, Collective Phenomena 
Author(s)  Czycholl, Gerd 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2023. 
Description  X, 390 p. 114 illus., 42 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The present volume 2 covers advanced topics in theoretical solid state physics and thus ties in directly with the fundamentals. Solids in external fields or more generally in nonequilibrium and deviations from the ideal 3dimensional crystal structure (surfaces, impurities, lowdimensional structures, quantum dots, etc.) are treated. The consideration of collective phenomena such as superconductivity and magnetism complete the presentation. The reader is assumed to have knowledge of the contents of Volume 1 (electrons and phonons in ideal crystals, Bloch theorem, occupation number representation or 2nd quantization, electronelectron and electronphonon interaction) as well as the basic knowledge of general theoretical physics (mechanics, electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, and statistical physics) usually available after a bachelor's degree in physics. Volume 2 is thus ideally suited for students in the master's program in physics who wish to specialize in (experimental or theoretical) solidstate physics. Addressing current topics (e.g., Kondo effect, fractional quantum Hall effect, 2dimensional crystals such as graphene, giant magnetoresistance effect, and others) provides an optimal transition to modern research. The new edition has been completely revised, with numerous exercises added and existing ones redesigned, with the associated solutions now included in the book. The author Studied physics in Cologne, diploma in 1974, doctorate in 1977 at the University of Cologne, then postdoc (scientific assistant) at the University of Dortmund and 198384 at Stanford University, habilitation in 1985 at the University of Dortmund, then temporary professorships in Dortmund and 19871990 at RWTH Aachen. Since 1991 Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Bremen. The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence. A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content

Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XIV, 570 p. 306 illus., 302 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Coauthored by the discoverer of the piezotronic effect, this book is a fundamental and comprehensive survey of piezotronics and piezophototronics. Piezotronics is a term broadly applied to devices fabricated using the piezopotential as a ???gate??? voltage to tune/control charge carrier transport at a contact or junction. The piezophototronic effect describes the use of the piezopotential to control the carrier generation, transport, separation and/or recombination for improving the performance of optoelectronic devices. The book first introduces the theory of the piezotronic effect and its applications in transistors, sensors, and catalysis. Subsequent chapters comprehensively cover the fundamentals of the piezophototronic effect and its impacts on photon sensors, solar cells, and LEDs. The updated and significantly expanded second edition covers the most recent advances and breakthroughs in this field over the last decade ??? gas, chemical, and biological nanosensors; quantumdots, wells, and wires; piezocatalysis; the piezophotonic effect; and the pyrophototronic effect. This seminal book serves as a basic text for scientists and students in the field of piezotronic devices and thirdgeneration semiconductors

Title  The Concept of Matter : A Journey from Antiquity to Quantum Physics 
Author(s)  Evangelisti, Florestano 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XII, 207 p. 36 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Our current concept of matter, one of scientific research???s greatest successes, represents a long journey, from questions posed during the birth of philosophy in Ancient Greece to recent advances in physics and chemistry, including Quantum Physics. This book outlines that journey. The book has three parts, each detailing a phase of the journey. The first saw the development of a conception based on "classical" physics; the second saw the construction of the "old" quantum theory attempting to explain the mysterious properties of matter, resulting in formulation of the "new" quantum theory; the third saw the formation of the modern conception of matter, based on quantum mechanics. Along the way, various topics are discussed, including: rediscovery and appropriation of antiquity by Western culture in the modern era; the subsequent revision process in the 16th and 17th centuries and the new experiments and theories of the 18th; attempts to understand the mysterious properties of matter that could not be explained by classical physics; the first quantization hypotheses; discovery of new purely "quantummechanical" properties of matter; and the ultimate clarification of atomic structure. This book is aimed at anyone who wants a clear picture of how we arrived at the modern conception of matter.

Title  Dynamical Phase Transitions in Chaotic Systems 
Author(s)  Leonel, Edson Denis 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  XVI, 74 p. 23 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book discusses some scaling properties and characterizes twophase transitions for chaotic dynamics in nonlinear systems described by mappings. The chaotic dynamics is determined by the unpredictability of the time evolution of two very close initial conditions in the phase space. It yields in an exponential divergence from each other as time passes. The chaotic diffusion is investigated, leading to a scaling invariance, a characteristic of a continuous phase transition. Two different types of transitions are considered in the book. One of them considers a transition from integrability to nonintegrability observed in a twodimensional, nonlinear, and areapreserving mapping, hence a conservative dynamics, in the variables action and angle. The other transition considers too the dynamics given by the use of nonlinear mappings and describes a suppression of the unlimited chaotic diffusion for a dissipative standard mapping and an equivalent transition in the suppression of Fermi acceleration in timedependent billiards. This book allows the readers to understand some of the applicability of scaling theory to phase transitions and other critical dynamics commonly observed in nonlinear systems. That includes a transition from integrability to nonintegrability and a transition from limited to unlimited diffusion, and that may also be applied to diffusion in energy, hence in Fermi acceleration. The latter is a hot topic investigated in billiard dynamics that led to many important publications in the last few years. It is a good reference book for senior or graduatelevel students or researchers in dynamical systems and control engineering, mathematics, physics, mechanical and electrical engineering

Title  Intrinsic Structures and Properties of Energetic Materials 
Author(s)  Zhang, Chaoyang;Huang, Jing;Bu, Rupeng 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  XVIII, 458 p. 331 illus., 317 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book highlights the intrinsic structures of all kinds of energetic compounds and some structure???property relationships therein. Energetic materials are a class of energy materials that can transiently release a large amount of gases and heat by selfredox after stimulated and usually refer to explosives, propellants and pyrotechnics. Nowadays, in combination with various theories and simulationaided material design technologies, many new kinds of energetic materials like energetic extended solids, energetic ionic salts, energetic metal organic frames, energetic cocrystals and energetic perovskites have been created, in addition to traditional energetic molecular crystals. It is somewhat dazzling, and an issue of how we can understand these new types of energetic materials is raised. In the past about 20 years, we were immersed in the computational energetic materials. By means of defining a concept of intrinsic structures of energetic materials, which refers to the crystal packing structure of energetic materials, as well as molecule for molecular solid specially, the microscopic structures have been mostly clarified, and related with many macroscopic properties and performances, with molecular simulations. This book presents our understanding about it. Thereby, a simply and new way to readily understand energetic materials is expected to be paved, based on this book. It contains energetic molecular crystals, energetic ionic crystals, energetic atomic crystals, energetic metallic crystals and energetic mixedtype crystals and the substructures closest to crystal packing. Meanwhile, the common intermolecular interactions in energetic crystals will be introduced. In addition, theoretical and simulation methods for treating the intrinsic structures will be briefed, as they are the main tools to reveal the molecules and crystals. Besides, the polymorphism as a level of intrinsic structures will be briefly discussed. In the final of this book, we introduce the crystal engineering of energetic materials. This book features the first proposal of intrinsic structure and crystal engineering of energetic materials and the understanding of the properties and performances of energetic materials by maintaining a concept that structure determines property. It helps to promote the rationality in creating new energetic materials, rather than increase experience

Title  Theory of Disordered Solids : From Atomistic Dynamics to Mechanical, Vibrational, and Thermal Properties 
Author(s)  Zaccone, Alessio 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XVII, 299 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a consistent mathematical theory of the nonelectronic physical properties of disordered and amorphous solids, starting from the atomiclevel dynamics and leading to experimentally verifiable descriptions of macroscopic properties such as elastic and viscoelastic moduli, plasticity, phonons and vibrational spectra, and thermal properties. This theory begins with the assumption of the undeniable existence of an ???amorphous lattice???, which allows one to relegate the theoretical uncertainties about the ultimate nature of the glass transition to a subsidiary role and thus take a more pragmatic approach towards the modelling of physical properties. The book introduces the reader not only to the subtle physical concepts underlying the dynamics, mechanics, and statistical physics of glasses and amorphous solids, but also to the essential mathematical and numerical methods that cannot be readily gleaned from specialized literature since they are spread out among many often technically demanding papers. These methods are presented in this book in such a way as to be sufficiently general, allowing for the mathematical or numerical description of novel physical phenomena observed in many different types of amorphous solids (including soft and granular systems), regardless of the atomistic details and particular chemistry of the material. This monograph is aimed at researchers and graduatelevel students in physics, materials science, physical chemistry and engineering working in the areas of amorphous materials, soft matter and granular systems, statistical physics, continuum mechanics, plasticity, and solid mechanics. It is also particularly well suited to those working on molecular dynamics simulations, molecular coarsegrained simulations, as well as ab initio atomistic and DFT methods for solidstate and materials science

Title  Linear Electrodynamic Response of Topological Semimetals : Experimental Results Versus Theoretical Predicitons 
Author(s)  Pronin, Artem V 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XI, 134 p. 69 illus., 66 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a model description for the electromagnetic response of topological nodal semimetals and summarizes recent experimental findings in these systems. Specifically, it discusses various types of topological semimetals ??? Dirac, Weyl, nodalline, triplepoint, and multifold semimetals ??? and provides description for the characteristic features of the linear electrodynamic response for all these types of materials. Topological semimetals possess peculiar bulk electronic band structure, which leads to unusual electrodynamic response. For example, the lowenergy interband optical conductivity of nodal semimetals is supposed to demonstrate powerlaw frequency dependence and the intra and interband contributions to the conductivity are often mixed. Further, the magnetooptical response is also unusual, because of the nonequidistant spacing between the Landau levels. Finally, in semimetals with chiral electronic bands, e.g. in Weyl semimetals, thesimultaneous application of parallel magnetic and electric fields leads to the chiral anomaly, i.e. to a misbalance between the electrons with diffident chiralities. This misbalance affects the electrodynamics properties of the material and can be detected optically. All these points are addressed here in detail. The book is written for a wide audience of physicists, working in the field of topological condensed matter physics. It gives a pedagogical introduction enabling graduate students and nonexperts to familiarize themselves with the subject

Title  Transport of Energetic Electrons in Solids : Computer Simulation with Applications to Materials Analysis and Characterization 
Author(s)  Dapor, Maurizio 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XXI, 269 p. 92 illus., 27 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes the computational methods most frequently used to deal with the interaction of charged particles, notably electrons, with condensed matter. Both elastic and inelastic scattering phenomena are discussed, and methods for calculating the relevant cross sections are explained in a rigorous but simple way. It provides readers with all the information they need in order to write their own Monte Carlo code and to simulate the transport of fast particles in condensed matter. Many numerical and experimental examples are presented throughout the book. The updated and extended fourth edition features ab initio methods for calculating dielectric function and energy loss function. Nonrelativistic partial wave expansion method for calculating the differential elastic scattering cross section is also included in this new edition. It represents a very useful introduction to the relativistic partial wave expansion method, i.e., to the Mott theory, already discussed inthe previous editions of this book. Further details about the effects of spinpolarization on the differential elastic scattering cross section are included in this new edition. The multiple reflection method is extended to the general case of a system composed of a set of layers of different materials and thicknesses. Analytical expressions are provided for calculating the backscattering coefficient of multilayers. New results are presented, notably about Monte Carlo simulations of reflection electron energy loss spectra and of the radial dose deposited along the track of ions impinging on materials
