By June Gunn Lee

This e-book covers the necessities of Computational technological know-how and offers instruments and methods to unravel fabrics technological know-how difficulties utilizing molecular dynamics (MD) and first-principles equipment. the hot variation expands upon the density useful conception (DFT) and the way the unique DFT has complicated to a extra actual point through GGA+U and hybrid-functional tools. It deals 14 new labored examples within the LAMMPS, Quantum coffee, VASP and MedeA-VASP courses, together with computation of stress-strain habit of Si-CNT composite, mean-squared displacement (MSD) of ZrO2-Y2O3, band constitution and phonon spectra of silicon, and Mo-S battery procedure. It discusses tools as soon as thought of too pricey yet which are now within your budget. New examples additionally comprise a number of post-processed effects utilizing VESTA, VMD, VTST, and MedeA.

Oscillations and Waves: An Introduction

Bridging lower-division physics survey classes with upper-division physics classes, Oscillations and Waves: An creation develops a unified mathematical idea of oscillations and waves in actual structures. Emphasizing physics over arithmetic, the writer contains many examples from discrete mechanical, optical, and quantum mechanical platforms; non-stop gases, fluids, and elastic solids; digital circuits; and electromagnetic waves.

100 Years of Superconductivity

Even 100 years after its discovery, superconductivity maintains to convey us new surprises, from superconducting magnets utilized in MRI to quantum detectors in electronics. a hundred Years of Superconductivity offers a complete number of themes on approximately the entire subdisciplines of superconductivity.

Research, Fabrication and Applications of Bi-2223 HTS Wires: 1 (World Scientific Series in Applications of Superconductivity and Related Phenomena)

The aim of this e-book is to hide all elements of Bi-2223 superconducting wires from primary examine, fabrication procedure to functions. This ebook includes many chapters written through exclusive specialists within the world.

The Mathematical Theory of Symmetry in Solids: Representation Theory for Point Groups and Space Groups (Oxford Classic Texts in the Physical Sciences)

This publication provides the entire idea of the irreducible representations of the crystallographic aspect teams and house teams. this can be vital within the quantum-mechanical learn of a particle or quasi-particle in a molecule or crystalline reliable as the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of a procedure belong to the irreducible representations of the gang of symmetry operations of that process.
