“This updated work (1st ed., 2008) takes the revolutionary concepts and techniques that have traditionally been fodder for graduate study and makes them accessible for all. Covering subjects ranging from materials science to mechanics and biotechnology to photonics, [the authors] deftly introduce the reader to each topic and quickly explain why it is important on the nanoscale. An exciting feature is the ‘back of the envelope’ examples, where the reader is walked through ‘quick and dirty’ calculations to illustrate and understand (mathematically) the complex concepts discussed. The end of each chapter includes traditional problem sets and short answer questions to test understanding. While not a comprehensive text in any specific area of nanoscale science or engineering, this outstanding introduction to the broad field of nanotechnology provides a solid foundation for further study. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and above; general readers.” —N. M Fahrenkopf, University at Albany, in CHOICE, 2011

Since the 1980s, rapid and fundamental developments in the understanding of solidification have come from both analytical theories and from the widespread availability of powerful computational techniques. This book describes the fundamentals of the technology in the context of these recent developments, presenting them in a coherent way, using consistent notation. Catalog no.

Polymers New!

Introduction to Polymer Science and Chemistry A Problem-Solving Approach, Second Edition Manas Chanda Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore

“Professor Chanda’s book provides comprehensive coverage of polymer science, with emphasis on quantitative aspects. Worked problems illustrate important concepts and provide the path toward solution in a clear manner. Traditional chain and step growth are covered along with the latest polymerization methods, including ATRP, RAFT, and other polymerization methods.” —Kenneth J. Wynne, Virginia Commonwealth University

Industry and academia remain fascinated with the diverse properties and applications of polymers. However, most introductory books on this enormous and important field do not stress practical problem solving or include recent advances, which are critical for the modern polymer scientist-to-be.

General The Mechanical and Thermodynamical Theory of Plasticity Mehrdad Negahban University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA

“an excellent text for a graduate-level course in plasticity…the approach and selection of topics are appropriate for the audience. ... The in-depth and unified approach to many topics discussed in the text (e.g., thermoplasticity under finite deformation) is of particular interest...” —Ken Zuo, University of Alabama in Huntsville, USA

“… takes a modern, in-depth approach to the subject of thermoplasticity. The chapters are written to be somewhat self-contained. …. can be adapted to satisfy a variety of courses and subjects. The author has done an admirable job of pointing out how the text would satisfy these competing requirements.”
