Authors: Alex Kaivarainen (Univ. of Turku, Dept. of Physics, Turku, Finland) 
Book Description:
Subject Scope: Condensed Matter

This book presents a review of an original Hierarchic theory of condensed matter, general for liquids and solids and its numerous applications. Computer programs based on a new theory were used for comprehensive simulations of water and ice physical properties and validation of the theory. Condensed matter is considered as a system of 3D standing waves (collective excitations) of different nature: thermal de Broglie waves, IR photons and thermal phonons. Quantitative interrelation between microscopic, mesoscopic (as intermediate) and macroscopic properties of condensed matter were found out.
New theories of total internal energy, including contributions of kinetic and potential energies, heat capacity, surface tension, vapor pressure, thermal conductivity, viscosity and self-diffusion are described. Hierarchic theory of osmotic pressure, based on new state equation, new theories of light refraction, Brillouin light scattering and Messbauer effect are presented also in article and compared with available experimental data for water and ice. Lot of hidden parameters, inaccessible for experiment, describing the dynamic and spatial properties of 24 quantum collective excitations of matter, can be calculated also, as demonstrated on examples of water and ice. Total number of physical parameters of liquids and solids in wide T-interval, including that of phase transitions, to be possible to evaluate using CAMP computer program, is about 300. The agreement between theoretical and available experimental results is good. The evidence of high-T mesoscopic Bose condensation (mBC) in water and ice in form of coherent clusters is obtained. The new mechanisms of the 1st and 2nd order phase transitions, related to such clusters formation/melting, their assembly/disassembly and symmetry change is proposed. The influence of weak magnetic field on water is demonstrated experimentally and explained in the framework of new theory. Theory unifies dynamics and thermodynamics on microscopics, mesoscopic and macroscopic scales in terms of quantum physics. The idea of new optoacoustic device: Comprehensive Analyzer of Matter Properties (CAMP) with huge informational possibilities, its possible configurations and applications are described.
