Distributions and Their Applications in Physics is the introduction of the Theory of Distributions and their applications in physics. The book contains a discussion of those topics under the Theory of Distributions that are already considered classic, which include local distributions; distributions with compact support; tempered distributions; the distribution theory in relativistic physics; and many others. The book also covers the Normed and Countably-normed Spaces; Test Function Spaces; Distribution Spaces; and the properties and operations involved in distributions. The text is recommended for physicists that wish to be acquainted with distributions and their relevance and applications as part of mathematical and theoretical physics, and for mathematicians who wish to be acquainted with the application of distributions theory for physics.

Methods of Statistical Physics is an exposition of the tools of statistical mechanics, which evaluates the kinetic equations of classical and quantized systems. The book also analyzes the equations of macroscopic physics, such as the equations of hydrodynamics for normal and superfluid liquids and macroscopic electrodynamics. The text gives particular attention to the study of quantum systems. This study begins with a discussion of problems of quantum statistics with a detailed description of the basics of quantum mechanics along with the theory of measurement. An analysis of the asymptotic behavior of universal quantities is also explained. Strong consideration is given to the systems with spontaneously broken system. Theories such as the kinetic theory of gases, the theory of Brownian motion, the theory of the slowing down of neutrons, and the theory of transport phenomena in crystals are discussed. The book will be a useful tool for physicists, mathematicians, students, and researchers in the field of statistical mechanics.

Fluctuations and Non-linear Wave Interactions in Plasmas talks about a theory of fluctuations in a homogenous plasma. The title takes into consideration non-linear wave interactions. The text first presents the statistical description of plasma, and then proceeds to covering non-linear electrodynamic equations. Next, the selection deals with the electrodynamic properties of magento-active plasma and waves in plasma. The text also tackles non-linear wave interactions, along with fluctuations in plasmas. The next chapter talks about the effect of non-linear wave interaction on fluctuations in a plasma. Chapter 8 details fluctuation-dissipation theorem, while Chapter 9 discusses kinetic equations. The tenth chapter covers the scattering and radiation of waves and the last chapter tackles wave interaction in semi-bounded plasma. The book will be of great use to scientists and professionals who deals with plasmas.
