Nuclear Physics

  • Fundamentals of Nuclear Physicsby Noboru Takigawa; Kouhei Washiyama

    Springer Japan 2017; US$ 92.42

    This book introduces the current understanding of the fundamentals of nuclear physics by referring to key experimental data and by providing a theoretical understanding of principal nuclear properties. It primarily covers the structure of nuclei at low excitation in detail. It also examines nuclear forces and decay properties. In addition to fundamentals,... more...

  • Longitudinally Polarised Terahertz Radiation for Relativistic Particle Accelerationby Matthew. J Cliffe

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 92.42

    This book elaborates on the acceleration of charged particles with ultrafast terahertz electromagnetic radiation. It paves the way for new, and improves many aspects of current, accelerator applications. These include providing shorter electron bunches for ultrafast time-resolved pump-probe spectroscopy, enabling complex longitudinal profiles to be... more...

  • Random Matrix Theory with an External Sourceby Edouard Brézin; Shinobu Hikami

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 45.68

    This is a first book to show that the theory of the Gaussian random matrix is essential to understand the universal correlations with random fluctuations and to demonstrate that it is useful to evaluate topological universal quantities. We consider Gaussian random matrix models in the presence of a deterministic matrix source. In such models the correlation... more...

  • Superphenixby Joel Guidez; Gérard Prêle

    Atlantis Press 2017; US$ 138.11

    For the first time a book has been written on the technological and scientific knowledge, acquired during, buiding , operation and even dismantling of the Superphenix plant. This reactor remains today the most powerful sodium fast breeder reactor operated in the world.(1200 MWe). The last fast breeder reactor operated in the world is BN 800 in... more...

  • Proceedings of The 20th Pacific Basin Nuclear Conferenceby Hong Jiang

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 275.18

    This is the first in a series of three proceedings of the 20th Pacific Basin Nuclear Conference (PBNC). This volume covers the topics of Safety and Security, Public Acceptance and Nuclear Education, as well as Economics and Reducing Cost. As one in the most important and influential conference series of nuclear science and technology,... more...

  • Durch Symmetrie die moderne Physik verstehenby Jakob Schwichtenberg

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2017; US$ 24.10

    Auf der Basis von Symmetrie-Überlegungen bietet dieses Buch eine einzigartige Herleitung der fundamentalen Theorien der Physik.  Dafür werden zunächst alle mathematische Werkzeuge eingeführt, die der Leser benötigt, um mit Symmetrien in der Physik zu arbeiten. Hierbei wird jedoch nur gewöhnliche Schulmathematik vorausgesetzt.  Anschließend... more...

  • Measurement of Quarkonium Polarization to Probe QCD at the LHCby Valentin Knuenz

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 92.42

    This thesis discusses in detail the measurement of the polarizations of all S-wave vector quarkonium states in LHC proton-proton collisions with the CMS detector. Heavy quarkonium states constitute an ideal laboratory to study non-perturbative effects of quantum chromodynamics and to understand how quarks bind into hadrons. The experimental results... more...

  • Environmental Radioactivity and Emergency Preparednessby Mats Isaksson; Christopher L. Raaf

    CRC Press 2017; US$ 119.95

    Radioactive sources such as nuclear power installations can pose a great threat to both humans and our environment. How do we measure, model and regulate such threats? Environmental Radioactivity and Emergency Preparedness addresses these topical questions and aims to plug the gap in the lack of comprehensive literature in this field. The book... more...

  • The Electron Mass and Calcium Isotope Shiftsby Florian Köhler-Langes

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 92.42

    This thesis presents the first isotope-shift measurement of bound-electron g-factors of highly charged ions and determines the most precise value of the electron mass in atomic mass units, which exceeds the value in the literature by a factor of 13. As the lightest fundamental massive particle, the electron is one of nature?s few central building... more...

  • A Tour of the Subatomic Zooby Cindy Schwarz

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2017; US$ 27.99

    A Tour of the Subatomic Zoo: A guide to particle physics is a brief and ambitious expedition into the remarkably simple ingredients of all the wonders of nature. With hardly a mathematical formula, Professor Cindy Schwarz clearly explains the language and much of the substance of elementary particle physics for the 99% of students who do not aspire... more...
