  • A Study of the Isoscalar Giant Monopole Resonanceby Darshana Chandrakant Patel

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis reports on investigations of a specific collective mode of nuclear vibration, the isoscalar giant monopole resonance (ISGMR), the nuclear "breathing mode", the energy of which is directly related to a fundamental property of nuclei?the nuclear incompressibility. The alpha inelastic scattering experiments reported in this thesis have... more...

  • The Two-Photon Decay of the 11-/2 Isomer of 137Ba and Mixed-Symmetry States of 92,94Zr and 94Moby Christopher Walz

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This work focuses on new electromagnetic decay mode in nuclear physics. The first part of the thesis presents the observation of the two-photon decay for a transition where the one-photon decay is allowed. In the second part, so called quadrupole mixed-symmetry is investigated in inelastic proton scattering experiments. In 1930 Nobel-prize winner M.... more...

  • Binding Energy of Strongly Deformed Radionuclidesby Vladimir Manea

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis reports results of precision mass spectrometry of exotic nuclides as a means of elucidating their structure. The work was performed with the ISOLTRAP spectrometer at CERN?s ISOLDE facility. The author furthermore offers an overview of existing techniques used in Penning-trap mass spectrometry and also reports on recent promising developments... more...

  • Direct Measurement of the Hyperfine Structure Interval of Positronium Using High-Power Millimeter Wave Technologyby Akira Miyazaki

    Springer Japan 2015; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis, the author develops new high-power millimeter wave techniques for measuring the hyperfine structure of positronium (Ps-HFS) directly for the first time in the world. Indirect measurement of Ps-HFS in the literature might have systematic uncertainties related to the use of a static magnetic field. Development of the millimeter wave devices... more...

  • BRST Symmetry and de Rham Cohomologyby Soon-Tae Hong

    Springer Netherlands 2015; US$ 109.00

    This book provides an advanced introduction to extended theories of quantum field theory and algebraic topology, including Hamiltonian quantization associated with some geometrical constraints, symplectic embedding and Hamilton-Jacobi quantization and Becci-Rouet-Stora-Tyutin (BRST) symmetry, as well as de Rham cohomology. It offers a critical overview... more...

  • Nuclear Structure with Coherent Statesby Apolodor Aristotel Raduta

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 149.00

    This book covers the essential features of a large variety of nuclear structure properties, both collective and microscopic in nature. Most of results are given in an analytical form thus giving deep insight into the relevant phenomena. Using coherent states as variational states, which allows a description in the classical phase space, or provides... more...
