Advances in the Casimir effect

Author: Michael Bordag
Publisher: Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2009.
Series: International series of monographs on physics (Oxford, England), 145.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This title 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.
