#### Higgs

OUP Oxford 2012; US$ 10.99The hunt for the Higgs particle involved the biggest, most expensive experiment ever. Finally, on 4 July 2012, CERN made the momentous announcement that a Higgs-like particle had been discovered. Here, Jim Baggott explains the science behind the discovery, how the theory was developed, and its implications for the future. more...

#### Particles at Interfaces

Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 325.00Particles at Interfaces presents recent developments in this growing field and is devoted entirely to the subject of particle transport, deposition and structuring on boundary surfaces. The complex problems which have been studied include concentrated systems of polydisperse and non-spherical particles, bio-particles such as DNA fragments, proteins,... more...

#### Proceedings of the SUNY Institute of Technology Conference on Theoretical High Energy Physics

NRC Research Press 2003; US$ 120.00This proceedings is the result of the second Theoretical High Energy Physics conference held at the SUNY Institute of Technology, in conjunction with Mount Allison University. The conference was held over a 3 week period in June 2002, involving speakers from international universities. more...

#### Gauge Theories in Particle Physics: A Practical Introduction, Volume 1

CRC Press 2012; US$ 76.95Volume 1 of this revised and updated edition provides an accessible and practical introduction to the first gauge theory included in the Standard Model of particle physics: quantum electrodynamics (QED). The book includes self-contained presentations of electromagnetism as a gauge theory as well as relativistic quantum mechanics. It provides... more...

#### Gauge Theories in Particle Physics: A Practical Introduction, Volume 2: Non-Abelian Gauge Theories

CRC Press 2012; US$ 76.95Volume 2 of this revised and updated edition provides an accessible and practical introduction to the two non-Abelian quantum gauge field theories of the Standard Model of particle physics: quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and the Glashow-Salam-Weinberg (GSW) electroweak theory. This volume covers much of the experimental progress made in the last... more...

#### Cluster Models and Other Topics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1987; US$ 76.00 US$ 69.16This volume consists of contributions from some of Japan's most eminent nuclear theorists. The cluster model of the nucleus is discussed pedagogically and the current status of the field is surveyed. A contribution on Monte Carlo Methods and Lattice Gauge Theories gives nuclear theorists a glimpse of related developments in QCD and Gauge Theories.... more...

#### Neutron Scattering by Ferroelectrics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 100.00 US$ 91.00This book presents the recent theoretical and experimental developments of neutron scattering by ferroelectrics. A Model description of lattice dynamics of structurally unstable crystals (self-consistent phonon approximation, pseudo-spin formalism, coherent potential approximation etc.) is formulated. The effects of nonlinear excitations and lattice... more...

#### Teleparallel Gravity

Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 100.49This is the first book devoted to teleparallel Gravity (TG), an alternative theory for gravitation, which is equivalent to General Relativity (GR). Shows how TG attributes gravitation to torsion, which accounts for gravitation by acting as a force. more...

#### High Energy Electron-Positron Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1988; US$ 68.00 US$ 61.88With the termination of the physics program at PETRA, and with the start of TRISTAN and the SLC and later LEP, an era of e+e- physics has come to an end and a new one begins. The field is changing from a field of few specialists, to becoming one of the mainstream efforts of the high energy community. It seems appropriate at this moment to summarize... more...

#### Quarks, Leptons and The Big Bang, Second Edition

CRC Press 2001; US$ 54.95Quarks, Leptons and The Big Bang is a clear, readable and self-contained introduction to particle physics and related areas of cosmology. It bridges the gap between non-technical popular accounts and textbooks for advanced students. The book concentrates on presenting the subject from the modern perspective of quarks, leptons and the forces between... more...
