Nuclear Physics

  • Quantum Field Theory Iby E. B. Manoukian

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 74.00

    This textbook covers a broad spectrum of developments in QFT, emphasizing those aspects that are now well consolidated and for which satisfactory theoretical descriptions have been provided. The book is unique in that it offers a new approach to the subject and explores many topics merely touched upon, if covered at all, in standard reference works.... more...

  • Energetic Particles in the Heliosphereby George M. Simnett

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 95.15

    This monograph traces the development of our understanding of how and where energetic particles are accelerated in the heliosphere and how they may reach the Earth. Detailed data sets are presented which address these topics. The bulk of the observations are from spacecraft in or near the ecliptic plane. It is timely to present this subject now that... more...

  • Inorganic Scintillators for Detector Systemsby Paul Lecoq; Alexander Gektin; Mikhail Korzhik

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 95.15

    This second edition features new chapters highlighting advances in our understanding of the behavior and properties of scintillators, and the discovery of new families of materials with light yield and excellent energy resolution very close to the theoretical limit. The book focuses on the discovery of next-generation scintillation materials and on... more...

  • Searching for Dark Matter with the ATLAS Detectorby Steven Schramm

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 91.98

    This thesis describes the search for Dark Matter at the LHC in the mono-jet plus missing transverse momentum final state, using the full dataset recorded in 2012 by the ATLAS Experiment.  It is the first time that the number of jets is not explicitly restricted to one or two, thus increasing the sensitivity to new signals.  Instead, a balance... more...

  • Plasma Physics and Controlled Thermonuclear Reactions Driven Fusion Energyby Bahman Zohuri

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 81.40

    This book covers the basic principles of both fusion and plasma physics, examining their combined application for driving controlled thermonuclear energy. The author begins by explaining the underlying scientific theory, and then goes on to explore the nuances of deployment within thermonuclear reactors. The potential for these technologies to help... more...
