#### Polarized Sources And Targets

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 168.00Polarized beams and targets have been irreplaceable tools in nuclear and particle physics experiments for a long time and have provided us rich information on the role played by spin-degrees of freedom in the sub-nuclear world. In addition, techniques to obtain large nuclear polarization have recently been applied to new fields such as materials and... more...

#### Fundamental Forces Of Nature

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 128.00Gauge fields are the messengers carrying signals between elementary particles, enabling them to interact with each other. Originating at the level of quarks, these basic interactions percolate upwards, through nuclear and atomic physics, through chemical and solid state physics, to make our everyday world go round. This book tells the story of gauge... more...

#### Quantum Decoherence

Springer 2006; US$ 129.00Constituting the proceedings of the Poincare Seminar, this volume covers the field of Quantum Decoherence. It gives a broad perspective on the subject, along with presentations of the actual experiments on decoherence both in the mesoscopic systems of atomic physics, and in the "quantronic" or condensed matter context. more...

#### Interactions Between Charged Particles in a Magnetic Field

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 179.00The present theory for the penetration of charged particles through matter rests on the fundamental work by Bohr, Bethe and Bloch. Due to the progress in the ac- lerationand detectionofparticles since the earlyyearsof the last centuryan incre- ing rangeofapplicationshas emerged,bothin fundamentalphysicsbut also in ?elds like medical radiology,materials... more...

#### Topics in Strangeness Nuclear Physics

Springer 2007; US$ 59.95Strangeness nuclear physics bears a broad impact on contemporary physics since it lies at the intersection of nuclear and elementary particle physics, having, moreover, significant implications to the astrophysics of compact objects. This set of extensive lectures presents a balanced theoretical and experimental introduction to, and survey of, the... more...

#### The Anomalous Magnetic Moment of the Muon

Springer 2007; US$ 279.00Devoted to the theory of the anomalous magnetic moment and to estimates of the theoretical uncertainties, this book reviews quantum electrodynamics and electroweak and hadronic effects. It describes non-perturbative hadronic effects that play a key role for the precision test. more...

#### Chiral Soliton Models for Baryons

Springer 2007; US$ 79.95This concise research monograph introduces and reviews the concept of chiral soliton models for baryons. In these models, baryons emerge as (topological) defects of the chiral field. The many applications shed light on a number of bayron properties, ranging from static properties via nucleon resonances and deep inelastic scattering to even heavy ion... more...

#### Axions

Springer 2007; US$ 84.95Axions are peculiar hypothetical particles that could both solve the CP problem of quantum chromodynamics and at the same time account for the dark matter of the universe. Based on a series of lectures by world experts in this field held at CERN (Geneva), this volume provides a pedagogical introduction to the theory, cosmology and astrophysics of these... more...
