#### Third generation SUSY and t¯t +Z production

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00This thesis describes searches for new particles predicted by the super symmetry (SUSY) theory, a theory extending beyond the current?Standard Model of particle physics, using the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The thesis focuses on searches for stop and sbottom squarks, the SUSY partners of the top and bottom quarks, which are expected... more...

#### Introduction to Quantum Field Theory

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 164.95This text explains the features of quantum and statistical field systems that result from their field-theoretic nature and are common to different physical contexts. It supplies the practical tools for carrying out calculations and discusses the meaning of the results. The central concept is that of effective action (or free energy), and the main technical... more...

#### From Photons to Higgs

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 81.00This book presents a brief introduction to the quantum field theory of the Standard Model for quarks and leptons. With minimal use of mathematics, it covers the basics of quantum field theory, local gauge field theory, spontaneous symmetry breaking mechanism, the Higgs mechanism and quantum chromodynamics. From the time when the first edition was published... more...

#### Portrait of Gunnar Källén

Springer 2013; US$ 99.00Wolfgang Pauli referred to him as 'my discovery,' Robert Oppenheimer described him as 'one of the most gifted theorists' and Niels Bohr found him enormously stimulating. Who was the man in question, Gunnar Kallen (1926-1968)" His appearance in the physics sky was like a shooting star. His contributions to the scientific debate... more...

#### Fundamental Problems in Quantum Field Theory

Bentham Science Publishers 2013; US$ 39.00Quantum physics is based on four fundamental interactions of electromagnetic, weak, gravitational and strong forces. All the interactions are expressed in terms of fermion and boson fields which can describe the quantum states of electrons, nucleons and photons in atoms or nuclei. Correct behaviors of these particles can now be described by the basic... more...

#### Quantum Field Theory

Wiley 2013; US$ 55.00Following on from the successful first (1984) and revised (1993) editions, this extended and revised text is designed as a short and simple introduction to quantum field theory for final year physics students and for postgraduate students beginning research in theoretical and experimental particle physics. The three main objectives of the book are... more...

#### Structural Aspects of Quantum Field Theory (In 2 Volumes)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 257.00This book is devoted to the subject of quantum field theory. It is dividedinto two volumes. The first can serve as a textbook on the main techniques and results of quantum field theory, while the second treats more recent developments, in particular the subject of quantum groups and noncommutative geometry, and their interrelation.The first volume... more...

#### Thermal Field Theories

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Theories of quantum fields at non-zero temperature have been steadily developed for well over a decade. In 1988, as a result of the increased demand for communication among theorists working in different fields ranging from condensed matter physics to high energy physics and astrophysics, the first international meeting was organized (the proceedings... more...

#### Recent Developments in Quantum Field Theory

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Theoretical particle physicists discuss the present status and, in particular, the latest developments in quantum field theory, in their broadest aspects. This volume contains the main lectures presented at the symposium and reflects the contemporary status of a line of development, one of whose initiators was Niels Bohr. more...

#### Geometrical and Algebraic Aspects of Nonlinear Field Theory

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Experts in general relativity, particle physics and mathematical physics discuss aspects of their recent research. The main emphasis is on the geometrical and algebraic methods used in solving a wide range of problems. more...
