The physics of part transitions is a vital quarter on the crossroads of numerous fields that play important roles in fabrics sciences. during this moment variation, new advancements were integrated which got here up within the states of subject physics, specifically within the area of nanomaterials and atomic Bose-Einstein condensates the place development is accelerating.
The presentation of numerous chapters were more advantageous via bringing larger info on a few section transition mechanisms and through illustrating them with new software examples. This paintings offers with all periods of part transitions in fluids and solids. It includes chapters on evaporation, melting, solidification, magnetic transitions, severe phenomena, superconductivity, etc., and is meant for graduate scholars in physics and engineering; for scientists it is going to serve either as an advent and an outline. End-of-chapter difficulties and entire solutions are included.
