  • Outskirts of Galaxiesby Johan H. Knapen; Janice C. Lee; Armando Gil de Paz

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 151.77

    This book consists of invited reviews written by world-renowned experts on the subject of the outskirts of galaxies, an upcoming field which has been understudied so far. These regions are faint and hard to observe, yet hide a tremendous amount of information on the origin and early evolution of galaxies. They thus allow astronomers to address some... more...

  • On the Inside of a Marbleby Gavin Bascom

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 19.84

    Keeping in mind that we can only see the universe from the comfort of our home galaxy, Bascom begins his text by meticulously laying the necessary groundwork to understand the Big Bang’s mathematics without using any equations. He then paints a freeze-frame picture of our universe as if we had taken a three-dimensional picture with a giant camera.... more...

  • Search for New Physics in Mono-jet Final States in pp Collisionsby Giuliano Gustavino

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 101.56

    This thesis provides a detailed and comprehensive description of the search for New Physics at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the mono-jet final state, using the first 3.2 fb -1  of data collected at the centre of mass energy of colliding protons of 13~TeV recorded in the ATLAS experiment at LHC. The results are interpreted as limits... more...

  • Search for Supersymmetry in pp Collisions at √s = 8 TeV with a Photon, Lepton, and Missing Transverse Energyby Yutaro Iiyama

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 101.56

    This Ph.D. thesis is a search for physics beyond the standard model (SM) of particle physics, which successfully describes the interactions and properties of all known elementary particles. However, no particle exists in the SM that can account for the dark matter, which makes up about one quarter of the energy-mass content of the universe.... more...

  • Gravitational Lensingby Scott Dodelson

    Cambridge University Press 2017; US$ 40.00

    This book presents the basics of gravitational lensing, accessible to students and researchers with a wide range of backgrounds. more...

  • Variational Approach to Gravity Field Theoriesby Alberto Vecchiato

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 46.69

    This book offers a detailed and stimulating account of the Lagrangian, or variational, approach to general relativity and beyond. The approach more usually adopted when describing general relativity is to introduce the required concepts of differential geometry and derive the field and geodesic equations from purely geometrical properties. Demonstration... more...

  • Precision Cosmologyby Bernard J. T. Jones

    Cambridge University Press 2017; US$ 76.00

    This book explains the fundamental science and mathematics that has enabled cosmology to become the precise quantitative science it is today. more...

  • The Ringed Planetby Joshua Colwell

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2017; US$ 27.99

    In September 2017, the Cassini spacecraft will point itself toward the atmoshpere of Saturn and end its 13-year mission of solving many of the mysteries of the ringed planet's system with a crash. This book is a dramatic, beautifully illustrated journey of discovery through the Saturn system. Cassini's instruments have revealed never seen before details... more...

  • The Philosophy of Cosmologyby Khalil Chamcham; Joseph Silk; John D. Barrow; Simon Saunders

    Cambridge University Press 2017; US$ 56.00

    This book addresses foundational questions raised by observational and theoretical progress in modern cosmology for a broad academic audience. more...

  • String Theory and the Real Worldby Gordon Kane

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2017; US$ 27.99

    This book attempts to explain why 'string theory' may provide the comprehensive underlying theory that describes and explains our world. It is an enthusiastic view of how compactified string/M-theories (plus data that may be reachable) seem to have the possibilities of leading to a comprehensive underlying theory of particle physics and cosmology,... more...
