Description

Zusatztext This is the first modern, comprehensive book on the Casimir effect, a very timely subject of growing importance and general appeal in physics. Although the Casimir effect has been an intriguing subject on its own right for more than half a century, it is experiencing a renaissance at the moment, because only fairly recently first precise measurements of the Casimir force have been made and because the Casimir effect is becoming important innanotechnology. Informationen zum Autor Dr Michael Bordag has held a number of positions at the University of Leipzig, Germany, and currently lectures there.Professor Galina Leonidovna Klimchitskaya began her career at the Leningrad State University, and is now Professor of the Department of Physics of the North-West Technical University (St.Petersburg, Russia). She has held visiting Professorships at Leipzig University, Germany; University of Paraiba, Joao Pessoa, Brazil; Central Brazilian Physical Institute, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and the University of California, Riverside, USA.Professor Umar Mohideen has held various positions at the University of California, Riverside, USA, and is now Vice-Chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy there.Professor Vladimir Mostepanenko is currently Principal Researcher of the Noncommercial Partnership ``Scientific Instruments'' (Moscow, Russia). He has held Visiting Professorships at Leipzig University, Germany; University of Paraiba, Joao Pessoa, Brazil; Central Brazilian Physical Institute, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and the University of California, Riverside, USA. Klappentext This book is a comprehensive sourcebook, distilled from hundreds of recently published papers, about the Casimir effect: the small forces originating from the quantum vacuum and acting between closely spaced bodies. It brings together developments in experiment and theory, fundamental and applied aspects of the Casimir force.
