- World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 234.00
Originally invented for generating the first artificial nuclear reactions, particle accelerators have undergone, during the past 80 years, a fascinating development that is an impressive example of the inventiveness and perseverance of scientists and engineers. Since the early 1980s, accelerator science and technology has been booming. Today, accelerators... more...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 239.00
Covers various aspects of the design and the daily operations of a beam diagnostic system for a large particle accelerator. This book involves contributions from physicists, electrical and mechanical engineers and computer experts alike so as to satisfy the demands for beam parameter variability for a range of operation modi and particles. more...

Particle accelerators are a major invention of the 20th century. In the last eight decades,they have evolved enormously and have fundamentally changed the way we live, think and work. Accelerators are the most powerful microscopes for viewing the tiniest inner structure of cells, genes, molecules, atoms and their constituents such as protons, neutrons,... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 203.00
The motivation to conceive and build accelerators comes from a most fundamental need of man to understand and control the world around us. With beams and their associated accelerators, scientists and engineers can gain understanding of the nature of matter and modify matter, which is not possible by other means. The areas already influenced... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1993; US$ 168.00
This volume, consisting of articles written by experts with international repute and long experience, reviews the state of the art of accelerator physics and technologies and the use of accelerators in research, industry and medicine. It covers a wide range of topics, from basic problems concerning the performance of circular and linear accelerators... more...
- Springer 2014; US$ 149.00
This book presents the developments in accelerator physics and technology implemented at the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider, the world?s most powerful accelerator for almost twenty years prior to the completion of the Large Hadron Collider. The book covers the history of collider operation and upgrades, novel arrangements of beam optics and methods... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1991; US$ 204.00
This workshop was designed to meet the needs of those currently involved in or are planning a nuclear programme involving research and/or power fission reactors. The workshop had a broad scope including not only fission reactor core calculations, but also safety, fuel management, waste disposal reactor licensing. The lectures and computer exercises... more...

Edited by internationally recognized authorities in the field, the Handbook is aimed at the design and operation of modern accelerators including Linacs, Synchrotrons and Storage Rings and is intended as a vade mecum for professional engineers and physicists engaged in these subjects. With a collection of 2100 equations, 330 illustrations and 180 tables,... more...
- Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 210.00
This book describes the basic knowledge in nuclear, neutron, and reactor physics necessary for understanding the principle and implementation of accelerator driven subcritical nuclear reactors (ADSRs), also known as hybrid reactors. Since hybrid reactors may contribute to future nuclear energy production, the book begins with a discussion of the general... more...
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2006; US$ 98.00
With a declining number of nuclear data evaluators in the world and an increasing demand for high-quality data, there is a risk that evaluators will concentrate on producing new nuclear data to the detriment of developing new models and methods for evaluating existing data. In this context, it is essential to identify the basic physics issues that... more...
