This title presents latest developments in the fields of high, intermediate and low energy physics as well as in molecular and solid materials. With a detailed introduction, the subject matter is reviewed to its latest status, such as: high energy physics - empirical approach systematizing the information on masses & spins etc, fundamental theories of antimatter, quarks & neutrino mass; intermediate energy - hot and dense nuclear matter; low energy physics - nuclear mass formula, "halo" structure of light, cold nuclear phenomena (i.e., cold fission); and, solid materials - carbon clusters, semiconductors and phenomenon of atomic diffusion in solids. Illustrating both present and future possibilities of new electrochromic materials and devices along with advances in Physics of molecular fluids and molecular materials in cosmic objects.
