#### Gas Lasers

Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 72.95Applied Atomic Collision Physics, Volume 3: Gas Lasers describes the applications of atomic collision physics in the development of many types of gas lasers. Topics covered range from negative ion formation in gas lasers to high-pressure ion kinetics and relaxation of molecules exchanging vibrational energy. Ion-ion recombination in high-pressure plasmas... more...

#### Introduction to the Physics of Electroweak Interactions

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95Introduction to the Physics of Electroweak Interactions is a six-chapter book that first elucidates the deep-inelastic and elastic lepton scattering on nucleons (both cases of polarized and nonpolarized initial particles). Subsequent chapter presents a brief history of the construction of the phenomenological V-A weak interaction Hamiltonian. Other... more...

#### Optical Angular Momentum

CRC Press 2016; US$ 220.00Spin angular momentum of photons and the associated polarization of light has been known for many years. However, it is only over the last decade or so that physically realizable laboratory light beams have been used to study the orbital angular momentum of light. In many respects, orbital and spin angular momentum behave in a similar manner, but they... more...

#### A Course in Field Theory

CRC Press 2016; US$ 71.95Extensively classroom-tested, A Course in Field Theory provides material for an introductory course for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in physics. Based on the author’s course that he has been teaching for more than 20 years, the text presents complete and detailed coverage of the core ideas and theories in quantum field theory. It... more...

#### Interaction of Radiation with Matter

CRC Press 2016; US$ 143.95Interaction of Radiation with Matter focuses on the physics of the interactions of ionizing radiation in living matter and the Monte Carlo simulation of radiation tracks. Clearly progressing from an elementary level to the state of the art, the text explores the classical physics of track description as well as modern aspects based on condensed... more...

#### Unitary Symmetry and Elementary Particles

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95Unitary Symmetry and Elementary Particles discusses the role of symmetry in elementary particle physics. The book reviews the theory of abstract groups and group representations including Eigenstates, cosets, conjugate classes, unitary vector spaces, unitary representations, multiplets, and conservation laws. The text also explains the concept of Young... more...

#### 14 MeV Neutrons

CRC Press 2015; US$ 159.95Despite the often difficult and time-consuming effort of performing experiments with fast (14 MeV) neutrons, these neutrons can offer special insight into nucleus and other materials because of the absence of charge. 14 MeV Neutrons: Physics and Applications explores fast neutrons in basic science and applications to problems in medicine, the environment,... more...

#### Advances in Imaging and Electron Physics

Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 245.00Advances in Imaging & Electron Physics merges two long-running serials— Advances in Electronics & Electron Physics and Advances in Optical & Electron Microscopy . The series features extended articles on the physics of electron devices (especially semiconductor devices), particle optics at high and low energies, microlithography, image science,... more...

#### Discovery and Measurement of the Higgs Boson in the WW Decay Channel

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 102.75This thesis describes the stand-alone discovery and measurement of the Higgs boson in its decays to two W bosons using the Run-I ATLAS dataset. This is the most precise measurement of gluon-fusion Higgs boson production and is among the most significant results attained at the LHC. The thesis provides an exceptionally clear exposition on a complicated... more...

#### The Mathematical Theory of Cosmic Strings

CRC Press 2015; US$ 220.00This book is a comprehensive survey of the current state of knowledge about the dynamics and gravitational properties of cosmic strings treated in the idealized classical approximation as line singularities described by the Nambu-Goto action. The author's purpose is to provide a standard reference to all work that has been published since the mid-1970s... more...
