Fundamentals New!

Principles of Metallurgical Thermodynamics Sanat Kumar Roy Subir Kumar Bose This textbook improves readers’ knowledge of thermodynamics-related fundamentals and examines their effective applications in various aspects of metallurgy. It primarily deals with equilibrium thermodynamics with emphasis on reactivities of metals and materials used by the scientific and engineering community. It also examines some non-equilibrium effects relevant to material scientists. The book focuses on the macroscopic point of view with a passing reference to the microscopic statistical approach. Many special material systems, their properties, and uses are discussed. • Contains a large number of numerical solved problems as well as unsolved problems at the end of most chapters • Structures exercises to help students develop their understanding of fundamental concepts through self study • Introduces new topics not commonly found in other textbooks on metallurgical thermodynamics

Optics of Nanomaterials Vladimir I. Gavrilenko Norfolk State University, Virginia, USA

Exploring the electrical, optical, and magnetic properties of materials at the nanoscale level, this text covers fundamental cross-disciplinary concepts in materials science and engineering. It presents a comprehensive description of the physical phenomena and changes that can be expected when macroscopically sized materials are reduced to the nanometer level.

Through comparative analysis of the size-dependent optical response from nanomaterials, this book demonstrates that although strides have been made in computational chemistry and physics, bridging length scales from nano to macro remains a major challenge. Organic, molecular, polymer, and biological systems are shown to be potentially useful models for assembly.
