#### Geometry and Physics of Branes

CRC Press 2002; US$ 231.00Branes are solitonic configurations of a string theory that are represented by extended objects in a higher-dimensional space-time. They are essential for a comprehension of the non-perturbative aspects of string theory, in particular, in connection with string dualities. From the mathematical viewpoint, branes are related to several important theories,... more...

#### Particle Physics beyond the Standard Model

Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 110.00The Standard Model of elementary particles and interactions is one of the best tested theories in physics. It has been found to be in remarkable agreement with experiment, and its validity at the quantum level has been successfully probed in the electroweak sector. In spite of its experimental successes, though, the Standard Model suffers from a number... more...

#### Concepts of Particle Physics

Oxford University Press 1987; US$ 29.95 US$ 25.76Enhances the material outlined in the first volume of "Concepts of Particle Physics", presenting it in greater detail. more...

#### Concepts of Particle Physics

Oxford University Press 1986; US$ 224.99 US$ 193.49The second volume of this authoritative work traces the material outlined in the first, but in far greater detail and with a much higher degree of sophistication. The authors begin with the theory of the electromagnetic interaction, and then consider hadronic structure, exploring the accuracy of the quark model by examining the excited states of baryons... more...

#### The Standard Model

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 60.00 US$ 49.20This 2006 book uses the standard model as a vehicle for introducing quantum field theory. more...

#### An Introduction to the Standard Model of Particle Physics

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 68.00 US$ 55.76The second edition of an introductory graduate textbook on the Standard Model of particle physics. more...

#### Ultrarelativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions

Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 180.00This book is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in high energy heavy-ion physics. It is relevant for students who will work on topics being explored at RHIC and the LHC. In the first part, the basic principles of these studies are covered including kinematics, cross sections (including the quark model and parton distribution... more...

#### Baryons 2002, Proceedings Of The 9th International Conference On The Structure Of Baryons

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 250.00This book deals with the latest developments in the area of three-quark systems. Emphasis is given to the discussion of new experimental results in the areas of form factors, unpolarized and polarized structure functions, and baryon structure and spectroscopy. Of particular interest are the new theoretical developments in the area of generalized parton... more...

#### Brane-localized Gravity

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 94.00This timely and valuable book provides a detailed pedagogical introduction and treatment of the brane-localized gravity program of Randall and Sundrum, in which gravitational signals are able to localize around our four-dimensional world in the event that it is a brane embedded in an infinitely-sized, higher dimensional anti-de Sitter bulk space. A... more...

#### Color Confinement And Hadrons In Quantum Chromodynamics, Proceedings Of The International Conference

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 187.00This book makes a global survey of nonperturbative aspects of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) from the viewpoints of mathematical, elementary-particle and hadron physics, including recent lattice-QCD results. It presents current, important progress in the following areas: the quark confinement mechanism, dynamical chiral-symmetry breaking, topologies... more...
