#### 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. 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.
