#### Collective Motion And Phase Transitions In Nuclear Systems

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 360.00This volume contains the invited contributions that were presented at the Predeal International Summer School in Nuclear Physics 2006. It covers the recent achievements in the fields of nuclear structure, double beta decay, nuclear multifragmentation, kaon and dilepton production in heavy ion collisions, and the quark–gluon plasma. The treatment... more...

#### 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...

#### 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...

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

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 179.00This monograph focuses on the influence of a strong magnetic field on the interactions between charged particles in a many-body system. Two complementary approaches, the binary collision model and the dielectric theory are investigated in both analytical and numerical frameworks. In the binary collision model, the Coulomb interaction between the 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...

#### 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...

#### String Theory and Fundamental Interactions

Springer 2007; US$ 139.00This volume, dedicated to Prof. Gabriele Veneziano on the occasion of his retirement from CERN, starts as a broad historico-scientific study on the work on string theory and nonperturbative QCD that has been pioneered by Prof. Veneziano in the late 60s and early 70s. It goes on to examine the many ramifications this and similar early work has spawned... more...

#### The Complete Idiot's Guide to String Theory

DK Publishing 2008; US$ 18.95Everything is connected... We''re living in the midst of a scientific revolution that''s captured the general public''s attention and imagination. The aim of this new revolution is to develop a "theory of everything"- -- a set of laws of physics that will explain all that can be explained, ranging from the tiniest subatomic particle to the... more...
