- World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 192.00
This book covers some recent advances in string theory and extra dimensions. Intended mainly for advanced graduate students in theoretical physics, it presents a rare combination of formal and phenomenological topics, based on the annual lectures given at the School of the Theoretical Advanced Study Institute (2001) ? a traditional event that brings... more...

In recent years, the main research areas were photonuclear reactions and meson productions by using the first high-duty tagged photon beam and the TAGX spectrometer. Although this field is developing quite rapidly, the synchrotron was closed in 1999 after 37 years of operation, and these activities continue at new facilities. It was therfore a good... more...
- Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 175.00
This book is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in high energy heavy-ion physics. It is relevant for students who will work on topics being explored at RHIC and the LHC. In the first part, the basic principles of these studies are covered including kinematics, cross sections (including the quark model and parton distribution... more...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 69.99
The empirical successes of atomic, nuclear, and particle physics have not diminished, and may never fully resolve, the philosophical controversies about the inner constitution of matter. This book examines these debates by exploring the particle concept in physics. It is suitable for scholars, students and teachers of science and philosophy. more...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 99.99
This book reports on progress in numerical methods for Lattice QCD with chiral fermions. It contains a set of pedagogical introductory articles written by experts from both the Applied Mathematics and Lattice Field Theory communities, together with detailed accounts of leading-edge algorithms for the simulation of overlap chiral fermions. Topics covered... more...
- Springer 2006; US$ 79.99
Covers the main topics in the theory of superdense QCD matter and its application to the astrophysics of compact stars. This book deals with the question whether hypothetical states of dense matter in the compact star interior could give clues to the explanation of puzzling phenomena such as gamma-ray bursts, and pulsar glitches. more...
- Springer 2006; US$ 99.99
String Theory is our best candidate for the unification of all fundamental forces, including gravity, in a consistent quantum framework. This work deals with this subject including topics such as the gauge/gravity correspondence, superstring cosmology and cosmic strings, topological string theory, and more. It is useful for students and experts. more...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 299.99
The focus of the contributions contained in this proceedings is the interplay between cosmology, astroparticle physics and particle physics, both from the theoretical and experimental point of view. The Adriatic Meetings have traditionally been one of the very few physics conferences devoted to the most advanced status of science, while aiming at a... more...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2005; US$ 199.99
Describes how advanced Time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) techniques work. This work demonstrates their application to time-resolved laser scanning microscopy, single molecule spectroscopy, photon correlation experiments, and diffusion of optical tomography of biological tissue. more...

Gauge fields are the messengers carrying signals between elementary particles, enabling them to interact with each other. Originating at the level of quarks, these basic interactions percolate upwards, through nuclear and atomic physics, through chemical and solid state physics, to make our everyday world go round. This book tells the story of gauge... more...
