#### String Phenomenology, Proceedings Of The First International Conference

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 260.00String phenomenology offers a bridge between the excitement and novelty that typified theoretical physics in recent years and experimental reality. The First International Conference on String Phenomenology concentrated on cosmological and phenomenologically oriented applications of string theory. The aim was to bring together experimental and theoretical... more...

#### Strings, Branes And Extra Dimensions (tasi 2001)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 351.00This book covers some recent advances in string theory and extra dimensions. Intended mainly for advanced graduate students in theoretical physics, it presents a rare combination of formal and phenomenological topics, based on the annual lectures given at the School of the Theoretical Advanced Study Institute (2001) ? a traditional event that brings... more...

#### Hadron and Nuclear Physics with Electromagnetic Probes

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 255.00In recent years, the main research areas were photonuclear reactions and meson productions by using the first high-duty tagged photon beam and the TAGX spectrometer. Although this field is developing quite rapidly, the synchrotron was closed in 1999 after 37 years of operation, and these activities continue at new facilities. It was therfore a good... 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...

#### 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...

#### 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.
