Nuclear Physics

  • Hadrons at Finite Temperatureby Samirnath Mallik; Sourav Sarkar

    Cambridge University Press 2016; US$ 112.00 US$ 91.84

    An elementary introduction to hadronic properties at finite temperature and density that develops real-time methods of thermal field theory. more...

  • First Search for the EMC Effect and Nuclear Shadowing in Neutrino Nuclear Deep Inelastic Scattering at MINERvAby Joel Allen Mousseau

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 94.71

    This thesis details significant improvements in the understanding of the nuclear EMC effect and nuclear shadowing in neutrino physics, and makes substantial comparisons with electron scattering physics. Specifically, it includes the first systematic study of the EMC ratios of carbon, iron and lead to plastic scintillator of neutrinos. The analysis... more...

  • Lattice Quantum Chromodynamicsby Francesco Knechtli; Michael Günther; Michael Peardon

    Springer Netherlands 2016; US$ 46.80

    This book provides an overview of the techniques central to lattice quantum chromodynamics, including modern developments.  The book has four chapters. The first chapter explains the formulation of quarks and gluons on a Euclidean lattice. The second chapter introduces Monte Carlo methods and details the numerical algorithms to simulate lattice... more...

  • Bayesian Inferenceby Hanns Ludwig Harney

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 94.71

    This new edition offers a comprehensive introduction to the analysis of data using Bayes rule. It generalizes Gaussian error intervals to situations in which the data follow distributions other than Gaussian. This is particularly useful when the observed parameter is barely above the background or the histogram of multiparametric data contains many... more...

  • Monte Carlo Methods for Radiation Transportby Oleg N. Vassiliev

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.97

    This book is a guide to the use of Monte Carlo techniques in radiation transport. This topic is of great interest for medical physicists. Praised as a "gold standard" for accurate radiotherapy dose calculations, Monte Carlo has stimulated a high level of research activity that has produced thousands of papers within the past few years. The book is... more...

  • Jet Physics at the LHCby Klaus Rabbertz

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 119.75

    This book reviews the latest experimental results on jet physics from proton-proton collisons at the LHC. Jets allow to determine the strong coupling constant over a wide range of energies up the highest ones possible so far, and to constrain the gluon parton distribution of the proton, both of which are important uncertainties on theory predictions... more...

  • Examination Questions and Answers in Basic Anatomy and Physiologyby Martin Caon

    Springer Singapore 2016; US$ 119.75

    This book provides two thousand multiple choice questions on human anatomy and physiology, separated into 40 categories. The answer to each question is accompanied by an explanation. Each category has an introduction to set the scene for the questions to come. However not all possible information is provided within these Introductions, so an... more...

  • Turbulence in the Solar Windby Roberto Bruno; Vincenzo Carbone

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 43.54

    This book provides an overview of solar wind turbulence from both the theoretical and observational perspective. It argues that the interplanetary medium offers the best opportunity to directly study turbulent fluctuations in collisionless plasmas.  In fact, during expansion, the solar wind evolves towards a state characterized by large-amplitude... more...

  • Introduction to Modern Magnetohydrodynamicsby Sébastien Galtier

    Cambridge University Press 2016; US$ 60.00 US$ 49.20

    An introductory text on magnetohydrodynamics for advanced students, covering its broad range of applications in nature and in the laboratory. more...

  • EPFL Lectures on Conformal Field Theory in D ? 3 Dimensionsby Slava Rychkov

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 46.80

    This primer develops Conformal Field Theory (CFT) from scratch, whereby CFT is viewed as any conformally-invariant theory that describes a fixed point of a renormalization group flow in quantum field theory. The book is divided into four lectures: Lecture 1 addresses the physical foundations of conformal invariance, while Lecture 2 examines the constraints... more...
