This series covers the whole of condensed matter physics, including crystalline solids; soft condensed matter; nanostructures; mesoscopic systems; correlated electrons; computational modeling; surface, interface, and atomic-scale science; and low-temperature phases.
If you are interested in writing or editing a book for the series, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact Rebecca Davies, Editor for Physics books, at [email protected] or +44 (20) 755 19348. Proposal guidelines can be accessed at http://www.crcpress.com/resources/authors.
Understanding Quantum Phase Transitions
Magnetic Anisotropies in Nanostructured Matter
The Magnetocaloric Effect and its Applications
Field Theories in Condensed Matter Physics
By Lincoln Carr

Quantum phase transitions (QPTs) offer wonderful examples of the radical macroscopic effects inherent in quantum physics: phase changes between different forms of matter driven by quantum rather than thermal fluctuations, typically at very low temperatures. QPTs provide new insight into outstanding...

The magnetocaloric effect describes the change in temperature of a magnetic material under adiabatic conditions through the application or removal of an external magnetic field. This effect is particularly pronounced at temperatures and fields corresponding to magnetic phase transitions, and it is ...

The application of field theoretic techniques to problems in condensed matter physics has generated an array of concepts and mathematical techniques to attack a range of problems such as the theory of quantum phase transitions, the quantum Hall effect, and quantum wires. While concepts such as the ...
