Quantum-Statistical Models of Hot Dense Matter: Methods for Computation Opacity and Equation of State - Progress in Mathematical Physics 37 (Hardback)Arnold F. Nikiforov (author), Vladimir Novikov (author), Vasilii B Uvarov (author), Andrei Iacob (translator)
- Not available
This book studies the widely used theoretical models for calculating properties of hot dense matter. Calculations are illustrated by plots and tables, and they are compared with experimental results. The purpose is to help understanding of atomic physics in hot plasma and to aid in developing efficient and robust computer codes for calculating opacity and equations of state for arbitrary material in a wide range of temperatures and densities.

From the reviews:
"This book presents quantum-statistical, self-consistent field models and methods ... appropriate to describe e.g. plasmas and astrophysical phenomena. ... Numerous special approximations for various problems are presented and supported by sample calculations using modern computer software programs ... and richly illustrated by plots and tables, and are also compared with experimental results. The present work is of a very high technical standard and aimed at specialists and advanced students working in the field of non-ideal plasmas." (R. Steinbauer, Monatshefte fur Mathematik, Vol. 152 (4), December, 2007)
