#### Superdense QCD Matter and Compact Stars

Springer 2006; US$ 129.00Covers the main topics in the theory of superdense QCD matter and its application to the astrophysics of compact stars. This book deals with the question whether hypothetical states of dense matter in the compact star interior could give clues to the explanation of puzzling phenomena such as gamma-ray bursts, and pulsar glitches. more...

#### String Theory: From Gauge Interactions to Cosmology

Springer 2006; US$ 169.00String Theory is our best candidate for the unification of all fundamental forces, including gravity, in a consistent quantum framework. This work deals with this subject including topics such as the gauge/gravity correspondence, superstring cosmology and cosmic strings, topological string theory, and more. It is useful for students and experts. more...

#### QCD and Numerical Analysis III

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 169.00This book reports on progress in numerical methods for Lattice QCD with chiral fermions. It contains a set of pedagogical introductory articles written by experts from both the Applied Mathematics and Lattice Field Theory communities, together with detailed accounts of leading-edge algorithms for the simulation of overlap chiral fermions. Topics covered... more...

#### Particle Physics and the Universe

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 379.00The focus of the contributions contained in this proceedings is the interplay between cosmology, astroparticle physics and particle physics, both from the theoretical and experimental point of view. The Adriatic Meetings have traditionally been one of the very few physics conferences devoted to the most advanced status of science, while aiming at a... more...

#### Advanced Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting Techniques

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2005; US$ 269.00Describes how advanced Time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) techniques work. This work demonstrates their application to time-resolved laser scanning microscopy, single molecule spectroscopy, photon correlation experiments, and diffusion of optical tomography of biological tissue. more...

#### Particle Metaphysics

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 89.95The empirical successes of atomic, nuclear, and particle physics have not diminished, and may never fully resolve, the philosophical controversies about the inner constitution of matter. This book examines these debates by exploring the particle concept in physics. It is suitable for scholars, students and teachers of science and philosophy. more...
