#### Higgs

OUP Oxford 2012; US$ 10.99The hunt for the Higgs particle involved the biggest, most expensive experiment ever. Finally, on 4 July 2012, CERN made the momentous announcement that a Higgs-like particle had been discovered. Here, Jim Baggott explains the science behind the discovery, how the theory was developed, and its implications for the future. more...

#### In Search of the Ultimate Building Blocks

Cambridge University Press 1996; US$ 36.00First-hand 'popular physics' book by very famous theoretical physicist. more...

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

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 160.00 US$ 145.60String 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...

#### Particles at Interfaces

Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 325.00Particles at Interfaces presents recent developments in this growing field and is devoted entirely to the subject of particle transport, deposition and structuring on boundary surfaces. The complex problems which have been studied include concentrated systems of polydisperse and non-spherical particles, bio-particles such as DNA fragments, proteins,... more...

#### Controlled Nucleosynthesis

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 233.73This book ushers in a new era of experimental and theoretical investigations into collective processes, structure formation, and self-organization of nuclear matter. It reports the results of experiments wherein for the first time the nuclei constituting our world (those displayed in Mendeleev's table as well as the super-heavy ones) have been artificially... more...

CRC Press 2012; US$ 76.95Volume 1 of this revised and updated edition provides an accessible and practical introduction to the first gauge theory included in the Standard Model of particle physics: quantum electrodynamics (QED). The book includes self-contained presentations of electromagnetism as a gauge theory as well as relativistic quantum mechanics. It provides... more...

#### Gauge Theories in Particle Physics: A Practical Introduction, Volume 2: Non-Abelian Gauge Theories

CRC Press 2012; US$ 76.95Volume 2 of this revised and updated edition provides an accessible and practical introduction to the two non-Abelian quantum gauge field theories of the Standard Model of particle physics: quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and the Glashow-Salam-Weinberg (GSW) electroweak theory. This volume covers much of the experimental progress made in the last... more...

#### Cluster Models and Other Topics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1987; US$ 76.00 US$ 69.16This volume consists of contributions from some of Japan's most eminent nuclear theorists. The cluster model of the nucleus is discussed pedagogically and the current status of the field is surveyed. A contribution on Monte Carlo Methods and Lattice Gauge Theories gives nuclear theorists a glimpse of related developments in QCD and Gauge Theories.... more...

#### Neutron Scattering by Ferroelectrics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 100.00 US$ 91.00This book presents the recent theoretical and experimental developments of neutron scattering by ferroelectrics. A Model description of lattice dynamics of structurally unstable crystals (self-consistent phonon approximation, pseudo-spin formalism, coherent potential approximation etc.) is formulated. The effects of nonlinear excitations and lattice... more...
