  • Dark Energy and the Formation of the Large Scale Structure of the Universeby Jérôme Gleyzes

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents several significant new results that shed light on two major puzzles of modern cosmology: the nature of inflation, the very early phase of the universe that is thought to have given rise to the large-scale structures that we observe today; and that of the current accelerated expansion. In particular, it develops a clean method... more...

  • Fast Scanning Calorimetryby Christoph Schick; Vincent Mathot

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 279.00

    In the past decades, the scan rate range of calorimeters has been extended tremendously at the high end, from approximately 10 up to 10 000 000 °C/s and more. The combination of various calorimeters and the newly-developed Fast Scanning Calorimeters (FSC) now span 11 orders of magnitude, by which many processes can be mimicked according to the time... more...

  • Multilayer Social Networksby Mark E. Dickison; Matteo Magnani; Luca Rossi

    Cambridge University Press 2016; US$ 32.00 US$ 26.24

    This book unifies and consolidates methods for analyzing multilayer networks arising from the social and physical sciences and computing. more...

  • Mechanik und Wärmelehreby Stefan Roth; Achim Stahl

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 39.99

    Dieses Lehrbuch der Experimentalphysik enthält eine umfassende Darstellung  der Mechanik und der Wärmelehre. Es ist als begleitende Lektüre zur einführenden Vorlesung für Studierende der Physik sowie der Nachbardisziplinen konzipiert. Dabei leitet es aus den experimentellen Befunden die grundlegenden Prinzipien her und arbeitet diese quantitativ... more...

  • Search for New Physics in tt ? Final States with Additional Heavy-Flavor Jets with the ATLAS Detectorby Javier Montejo Berlingen

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This doctoral thesis focuses on the search for new phenomena in top-antitop quark (tt) final states with additional b-quark jets at the LHC. It uses the full Run 1 dataset collected by the ATLAS experiment in proton-proton collisions at ?s=8 TeV. The final state of interest consists of an isolated lepton, a neutrino and at least six jets with at least... more...

  • Statistical Physics of Wave Interactionsby Fabrizio Antenucci

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis reveals the utility of pursuing a statistical physics approach in the description of wave interactions in multimode optical systems. To that end, the appropriate Hamiltonian models are derived and their limits of applicability are discussed. The versatility of the framework allows the characterization of ordered and disordered lasers in... more...

  • Modell zur Vorhersage der Brennrate in der Betriebsart kontrollierte Benzinselbstzündungby Mahir Tim Keskin

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2016; US$ 54.99

    Mahir Tim Keskin beschreibt die Entwicklung eines schnellen, vorhersagefähigen Brennverlaufmodells für das Brennverfahren der kontrollierten Benzinselbstzündung. Ausgehend von einer detaillierten Messdatenanalyse zeigt der Autor, dass zur Beschreibung der Verbrennung neben der eigentlichen Selbstzündung auch eine laminar-turbulente Flammenausbreitung... more...

  • Engineering verfahrenstechnischer Anlagenby Klaus H. Weber

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 109.00

    Die 2. Auflage dieses Buches ist eine vollständige Überarbeitung, Aktualisierung und wesentliche Erweiterung der vorherigen Auflage. Dies betrifft insbesondere die Darlegung und Beachtung neuer Rechtsvorschriften der EU und BRD sowie von aktuellen EU-Normen. Die Ausführungen zum Explosionsschutz , zur Risikobeurteilung und zur schutzrechtlichen... more...

  • Fluid and Thermodynamicsby Kolumban Hutter; Yongqi Wang

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00

    In this book fluid mechanics and thermodynamics (F&T) are approached as interwoven, not disjoint fields. The book starts by analyzing the creeping motion around spheres at rest: Stokes flows, the Oseen correction and the Lagerstrom-Kaplun expansion theories are presented, as is the homotopy analysis. 3D creeping flows and rapid granular avalanches... more...

  • Theoretical Frontiers in Black Holes and Cosmologyby Renata Kallosh; Emanuele Orazi

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 169.00

    These lecture notes are dedicated to the most recent theoretical applications of Black Hole solutions in high-energy physics. The main motivation of this volume is to present the latest black hole backgrounds that are relevant for gauge/gravity correspondence. Leading scientists in the field explain effective techniques for finding singular and cosmological... more...
