Title  Collapse of Metastability : Dynamics of FirstOrder Phase Transition 
Author(s)  Miyashita, Seiji 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  XI, 259 p. 101 illus., 49 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  To understand phenomena in nature, it is important to focus not only on properties of stationary states, but also their changes in time, that is, the dynamics between bistable states. This book reviews the mechanics of firstorder phase transitions and discusses relaxation and collapses of metastable states from various viewpoints, including Kramers' method for the lifetime of metastability, Langer???s analysis on the singularity, effects of thermal fluctuation studied by N??el and Brown, and eigenvalue structures of the transfermatrix for the phase transitions. The book also goes into the mechanics of metastability in quantum systems from the viewpoints of the eigenvalue problem of the Hamiltonian and the Liouvillian for a dynamical process and discusses relations between quantum tunneling processes and metastability therein. Lastly, the coercivity of magnets consisting of an ensemble of grains is reviewed. The book is beneficial for those new in the field as a primer on firstorder phase transition from modern perspectives. The comprehensive content offers overviews of related topics and allows readers to quickly catch up with developments in the field

Title  Critical States at Phase Transitions of Pure Substances 
Author(s)  ??brahimo??lu, Beycan;??brahimo??lu, Beycan Jr 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXIII, 185 p. 123 illus., 107 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book reexamines the conventional pressuretemperature phase diagrams of pure substances, taking into account a universally acknowledged, albeit often neglected, state of matter???the plasma phase. It argues that only the temperature component of the endpoint on the gasliquid equilibrium curve is critical, not the pressure and volume, which themselves are the corresponding components of the critical temperature. The book features the compiled results of many recent experimental studies on the physical properties of benzene, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide, extracting the endpoints of the liquidsolid and solidgas equilibria and yielding the real critical pressure and volume. These discoveries highlight the position of plasma on the phase diagram and the existence of the equilibrium ionization curve along with it. Detailed knowledge of the plasma state of matter is essential not only in many fields of physics and chemistry but in engineering and industrial applications as well. This book will easily benefit researchers, engineers, and instructors who routinely interact with phase diagrams

Title  Probing Unconventional Transport Regimes in Delafossite Metals 
Author(s)  McGuinness, Philippa H 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVII, 140 p. 83 illus., 72 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis describes indepth studies of the remarkable electronic transport within the ultrahigh conductivity delafossite metals PtCoO_2 and PdCoO_2 using the tool of focused ion beam (FIB) microstucturing. Despite being first synthesised over 50 years ago, important questions remain regarding both the origin of the unusually high conductivity of these compounds and the consequences of their unique properties for unconventional electronic transport, such as that within the ballistic regime. The thesis explores both these areas. Highenergy electron irradiation is used to examine the effects of deliberately introducing point defects into PdCoO_2 and PtCoO_2, demonstrating that the extremely low resistivity of these materials stems from an extreme purity as high as 1 defect in 120,000 atoms, rather than a novel scattering suppression mechanism. In addition, studies of the electronic transport in micronscale squares of these metals show that their broadly hexagonal Fermi surfaces lead not only to long range ballistic behaviour but novel ballistic regime phenomena which cannot be observed in materials with a highersymmetry Fermi surface

Title  Equilibrium Statistical Physics : Phases, Phase Transitions, and Topological Phases 
Author(s)  Baus, Marc;Tejero, Carlos F 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XVI, 437 p. 119 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook gradually introduces students to the statistical mechanical study of the different phases of matter and to the phase transitions between them. It uses simple yet fully detailed models of both hard and soft matter systems to demonstrate core concepts, developing the subject matter in a thorough and accessible pedagogical manner throughout. Starting from an introduction to basic thermodynamics and statistical physics, the book progresses from ideal, noninteracting systems to real systems exhibiting classical interactions and phase transitions. It concludes with a selection of more advanced topics, such as the renormalisation group approach to critical phenomena, the density functional theory of interfaces, and kinematic aspects of the phase transformation process. This updated second edition features a considerably expanded study of the topology of the phases, including applications to modern problems such as topological defects of nematic liquid crystals and the topological phase transition of a twodimensional spin system. Along with a complete introductory overview of the theory of phase transitions, this textbook provides students with ample material for deeper study. References include suggestions for more detailed treatments and six appendices supply overviews of the mathematical tools employed in the text
