RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 41871490 LA English T1 Nonlinear optics of random media : fractal composites and metal-dielectric films A1 Shalaev, Vladimir M.,, PB Springer PP Berlin; New York YR 2000 SN 3540656154 9783540656159 AB "This book reviews recent advances in one of the most prominent fields of physics. It provides an outline of the basic models of irregular structures of random inhomogeneous media and the approaches used to describe their linear electromagnetic properties. Optical nonlinearities in random media are also discussed. The chapters can be read independently, so scientists and students interested in a specific problem can go directly to the relevant text."--Jacket.
