Title  Heisenberg???s Uncertainty Principle and the Electron Statistics in Quantized Structures 
Author(s)  Ghatak, Kamakhya Prasad;Mitra, Madhuchhanda;Biswas, Arindam 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  XXVI, 234 p. 133 illus., 63 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book highlights the importance of Electron Statistics (ES), which occupies a singular position in the arena of solid state sciences, in heavily doped (HD) nanostructures by applying Heisenberg???s Uncertainty Principle directly without using the complicated DensityofStates function approach as given in the literature. The materials considered are HD quantum confined nonlinear optical, IIIV, IIVI, IVVI, GaP, Ge, PtSb2, stressed materials, GaSb, Te, IIV, Bi2Te3, lead germanium telluride, zinc and cadmium diphosphides, and quantum confined IIIV, IVVI, IIVI and HgTe/CdTe superlattices with graded interfaces and effective mass superlattices. The presence of intense light waves in optoelectronics and strong electric field in nanodevices change the band structure of materials in fundamental ways, which have also been incorporated in the study of ES in HD quantized structures of optoelectronic compounds that control the studies of the HD quantum effect devices under strong fields. The influence of magnetic quantization, magneto size quantization, quantum wells, wires and dots, crossed electric and quantizing fields, intense electric field, and light waves on the ES in HD quantized structures and superlattices are discussed. The content of this book finds six different applications in the arena of nanoscience and nanotechnology and the various ES dependent electronic quantities, namely the effective mass, the screening length, the Einstein relation and the elastic constants have been investigated. This book is useful for researchers, engineers and professionals in the fields of Applied Sciences, solid state and materials science, nanoscience and technology, condensed matter physics, and allied fields, including courses in semiconductor nanostructures

Title  Spatial Networks : A Complete Introduction: From Graph Theory and Statistical Physics to RealWorld Applications 
Author(s)  Barthelemy, Marc 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIX, 437 p. 241 illus., 157 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a complete introduction into spatial networks. It offers the mathematical tools needed to characterize these structures and how they evolve in time and presents the most important models of spatial networks. The book puts a special emphasis on analyzing complex systems which are organized under the form of networks where nodes and edges are embedded in space. In these networks, space is relevant, and topology alone does not contain all the information. Characterizing and understanding the structure and the evolution of spatial networks is thus crucial for many different fields, ranging from urbanism to epidemiology. This subject is therefore at the crossroad of many fields and is of potential interest to a broad audience comprising physicists, mathematicians, engineers, geographers or urbanists. In this book, the author has expanded his previous book ("Morphogenesis of Spatial Networks") to serve as a textbook and reference on this topic for a wide range of students and professional researchers

Title  Modern Physics : Introduction to Statistical Mechanics, Relativity, and Quantum Physics 
Author(s)  Salasnich, Luca 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  X, 194 p. 10 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers an introduction to statistical mechanics, special relativity, and quantum physics. It is based on the lecture notes prepared for the onesemester course of "Quantum Physics" belonging to the Bachelor of Science in Material Sciences at the University of Padova. The first chapter briefly reviews the ideas of classical statistical mechanics introduced by James Clerk Maxwell, Ludwig Boltzmann, Willard Gibbs, and others. The second chapter is devoted to the special relativity of Albert Einstein. In the third chapter, it is historically analyzed the quantization of light due to Max Planck and Albert Einstein, while the fourth chapter discusses the Niels Bohr quantization of the energy levels and the electromagnetic transitions. The fifth chapter investigates the Schrodinger equation, which was obtained by Erwin Schrodinger from the idea of Louis De Broglie to associate to each particle a quantum wavelength. Chapter Six describes the basic axioms of quantum mechanics, which were formulated in the seminal books of Paul Dirac and John von Neumann. In chapter seven, there are several important application of quantum mechanics: the quantum particle in a box, the quantum particle in the harmonic potential, the quantum tunneling, the stationary perturbation theory, and the timedependent perturbation theory. Chapter Eight is devoted to the study of quantum atomic physics with special emphasis on the spin of the electron, which needs the Dirac equation for a rigorous theoretical justification. In the ninth chapter, it is explained the quantum mechanics of many identical particles at zero temperature, while in Chapter Ten the discussion is extended to many quantum particles at finite temperature by introducing and using the quantum statistical mechanics. The four appendices on Dirac delta function, complex numbers, Fourier transform, and differential equations are a useful mathematical aid for the reader

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  Mathematical Modeling of ShockWave Processes in Condensed Matter : From Statistical Thermodynamics to Control Theory 
Author(s)  Khantuleva, Tatiana Aleksandrovna 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  XV, 336 p. 77 illus., 58 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers an interdisciplinary theoretical approach based on nonequilibrium statistical thermodynamics and control theory for mathematically modeling shockinduced outofequilibrium processes in condensed matter. The book comprises two parts. The first half of the book establishes the theoretical approach, reviewing fundamentals of nonequilibrium statistical thermodynamics and control theory of adaptive systems. The latter half applies the presented approach to a problem on shockinduced plane wave propagation in condensed matter. The result successfully reproduces the observed feature of waveform propagation in experiments, which conventional continuous mechanics cannot access. Further, the consequent stress???strain relationships derived with relaxation and inertia effect in elastic???plastic transition determines material properties in transient regimes

Title  Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics 
Author(s)  Di Vita, Andrea 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXI, 221 p. 22 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The importance of thermodynamics, particularly its Second Principle, to all branches of science in which systems with very large numbers of particles are involved cannot be overstated. This book offers a panoramic view of nonequilibrium thermodynamics. Perhaps the two most attractive aspects of thermodynamic equilibrium are its stability and its independence from the specifics of the particular system involved. Does an equivalent exist for nonequilibrium thermodynamics? Many researchers have tried to describe such stability in the same way that the Second Principle describes the stability of thermodynamic equilibrium  and failed. Most of them invoked either entropy, or its production rate, or some modified version of it. In their efforts, however, those researchers have found a lot of useful stability criteria for farfromequilibrium states. These criteria usually take the form of variational principles, in terms of the minimization or maximization of some quantity. The aim of this book is to discuss these variational principles by highlighting the role of macroscopic quantities. This book is aimed at a wider audience than those most often exposed to the criteria described, i.e., undergraduates in STEM, as well as the usual interested and invested professionals
