- 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...

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 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 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-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...

This volume comprises the proceedings of the 8th Joint School on accelerator physics. On this occasion, the US, CERN, Japan and Russia Particle Accelerator Schools collaborated to present the topic of “Beam Measurements”. The aim was to provide an introduction to the principles of beam dynamics and measurements in circular particle accelerators.... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 176.00
This book adopts a non-traditional approach to accelerator theory. The exposition starts with the synchro-betatron formalism and continues with the linear and nonlinear theories of transverse betatron motion. Various methods of studying nonlinear dynamical systems (the canonical theory of perturbations and the methods of multiple scales and formal... more...

In een 27 km lange tunnel onder de grond in de buurt van Genève wordt na een jarenlange voorbereiding de laatste hand gelegd aan een deeltjesversneller. De versneller is gemaakt om protonen met elkaar in botsing te brengen. De protonen krijgen een ongeëvenaarde snelheid en op deze manier zullen de botsingen inzicht verschaffen in het diepst van de... more...
