  • Plasma Nitriding of Steelsby Hossein Aghajani; Sahand Behrangi

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 112.31

    This book focuses on the effect of plasma nitriding on the properties of steels. Parameters of different grades of steels are considered, such as structural and constructional steels, stainless steels and tools steels. The reader will find within the text an introduction to nitriding treatment, the basis of plasma and its roll in nitriding. The authors... more...

  • The Universal Coefficient Theorem and Quantum Field Theoryby Andrei-Tudor Patrascu

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.71

    This thesis describes a new connection between algebraic geometry, topology, number theory and quantum field theory. It offers a pedagogical introduction to algebraic topology, allowing readers to rapidly develop basic skills, and it also presents original ideas to inspire new research in the quest for dualities. Its ambitious goal is to construct... more...

  • Higgs, Supersymmetry and Dark Matter After Run I of the LHCby Béranger Dumont

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.71

    This work was nominated as an outstanding PhD thesis by the LPSC, Université Grenoble Alpes, France. The LHC Run 1 was a milestone in particle physics, leading to the discovery of the Higgs boson, the last missing piece of the so-called "Standard Model" (SM), and to important constraints on new physics, which challenge popular theories like weak-scale... more...

  • Lectures on Quantum Mechanicsby Jean-Louis Basdevant

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 78.61

    Beautifully illustrated and engagingly written, Twelve Lectures in Quantum Mechanics presents theoretical physics with a breathtaking array of examples and anecdotes. more...

  • Bioelectricsby Hidenori Akiyama; Richard Heller

    Springer Japan 2016; US$ 146.01

    This book focuses on bioelectrics, a new multidisciplinary field encompassing engineering and biology with applications to the medical, environmental, food, energy, and biotechnological fields. At present, 15 universities and institutes in Japan, the USA and the EU comprise the International Consortium of Bioelectrics, intended to advance this novel... more...

  • Measurement of the D0 Meson Production in Pb?Pb and p?Pb Collisionsby Andrea Festanti

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.71

    This thesis presents the first measurement of charmed D0 meson production relative to the reaction plane in Pb?Pb collisions at the center-of-mass energy per nucleon-nucleon collision of ?sNN = 2.76 TeV. It also showcases the measurement of the D0 production in p?Pb collisions at ?sNN = 5.02 TeV with the ALICE detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider.... more...

  • Modification of K0s and Lambda(AntiLambda) Transverse Momentum Spectra in Pb-Pb Collisions at ?sNN = 2.76 TeV with ALICEby Simone Schuchmann

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.71

    This thesis offers an excellent, comprehensive introduction to the physics of the quark?gluon plasma. It clearly explains the connection between theory and experiment, making the topic accessible to non-specialists in this field. The experimental work, which contributes significantly to our understanding of the quark?gluon plasma, is described... more...

  • Radiation Safetyby Haydee Domenech

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 146.01

    This book discusses important fundamentals of radiation safety with specific details on dose units, calculations, measuring, and biological effects of ionizing radiation. The author covers different exposure situations and their requirements, and relevant legislation and regulations governing radiation safety. The book also examines radioactive... more...

  • High Jet Multiplicity Physics at the LHCby Mireia Crispín Ortuzar

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.71

    This book describes research in two different areas of state-of-the-art hadron collider physics, both of which are of central importance in the field of particle physics. The first part of the book focuses on the search for supersymmetric particles called gluinos. The book subsequently presents a set of precision measurements of ?multi-jet? collision... more...
