  • Magnetic Fusion Technologyby

    Springer London 2014; US$ 279.00

    Revised throughout in response to advances in the field since its first edition, this text describes the technologies needed to generate power in nuclear fusion plants using strong magnetic fields, from the magnets themselves to cryogenic and safety systems. more...

  • Ideals and Realitiesby Salam Abdus; Hassan Z.; H Lai C

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1983; US$ 92.00

    This is a collection of writings of Professor Abdus Salam, Nobel Laureate of Physics, 1979. The writings touch on many different themes, and discuss the social and economic dimensions of science. Difficulties faced by scientists in developing countries and their solutions are also given some insightful analysis. There are also interesting accounts... more...

  • Controlled Nucleosynthesisby Stanislav Adamenko; Franco Selleri; Alwyn van der Merwe

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 289.00

    This book ushers in a new era of experimental and theoretical investigations into collective processes, structure formation, and self-organization of nuclear matter. It reports the results of experiments wherein for the first time the nuclei constituting our world (those displayed in Mendeleev's table as well as the super-heavy ones) have been artificially... more...

  • The J-Matrix Methodby Abdulaziz D. Alhaidari; H.A. Yamani; Eric J. Heller; E.J: Heller; Hashim A. Yamani; Mohamed S. Abdelmonem

    Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 189.00

    This volume aims to provide the fundamental knowledge to appreciate the advantages of the J-matrix method and to encourage its use and further development. The J-matrix method is an algebraic method of quantum scattering with substantial success in atomic and nuclear physics. The accuracy and convergence property of the method compares favourably with... more...

  • Cathodic Arcsby André Anders

    Springer New York 2009; US$ 219.00

    Cathodic arcs are among the longest studied yet least understood objects in science. This book describes research related to cathodic arcs and deals with practical issues, such as arc source construction and the synthesis of dense, well adherent coatings. more...

  • Ion Beam Analysisby H. H. Andersen; J. Bøttiger; H. Knudsen

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95

    Nuclear Instruments and Methods, Volume 168: Ion Beam Analysis presents the proceedings of the Fourth International Conference on Ion Beam Analysis, held in Aarhus, Denmark, on June 25-29, 1979. This book provides information pertinent to the methods and applications ion beam analysis. Organized into eight parts encompassing 95 chapters, this volume... more...

  • Jet Quenching in Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions at the LHCby Aaron Angerami

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents the first measurements of jets in relativistic heavy ion collisions as reported by the ATLAS Collaboration. These include the first direct observation of jet quenching through the observation of a centrality-dependent dijet asymmetry. Also, a series of jet suppression measurements are presented, which provide quantitative constraints... more...

  • The Two-Body Force in Nucleiby Sam Austin

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    The idea of this symposium grew out of our discussions on the need to review the advances that had been made in the theoretical description of inelastic scattering reactions in the last few years. Since a microscopic description of inelastic scattering uses realistic effective interactions, we felt that it was appropriate to begin such a summary with... more...

  • Swift Heavy Ions for Materials Engineering and Nanostructuringby Devesh Kumar Avasthi; Girijesh Kumar Mehta

    Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 169.00

    Ion beams have been used for decades to analyze materials. Now they can be used to modify materials in unprecedented ways. This book discusses the use of high-energy swift heavy ions for tailoring the properties of materials with nanoscale structures. more...

  • Recent Progress in Many-Body Theoriesby Y. Avishai

    Springer US 2012; US$ 119.00

    Proceedings of the Sixth International Conference held in Arad, Israel, November 5-10, 1989 more...
