Nuclear Physics

  • Intermediate-Energy Nuclear Physicsby A.S. Iljinov

    CRC Press 2018; US$ 227.50

    Intermediate-Energy Nuclear Physics is devoted to discussing the interaction between hadrons with nuclei, which leads to the emission of particles during an intranuclear cascade and subsequent decay of a highly excited residual nucleus. Experimental data and the methods and results of the calculation of probabilities of various processes initiated... more...

  • The Weak Interaction in Nuclear, Particle and Astrophysicsby K. Grotz

    CRC Press 2018; US$ 260.00

    The Weak Interaction in Nuclear, Particle and Astrophysics presents concepts of the weak interaction and its integration into modern gauge theories of particle physics, such as grand unification and supersymmetry. The book explores the close connections between micro (nuclear and particle) physics and macro physics (astrophysics and cosmology) induced... more...

  • Novel Electronic Structure Theory: General Innovations and Strongly Correlated Systemsby Philip E. Hoggan

    Elsevier Science 2018; US$ 245.00

    Novel Electronic Structure Theory: General Innovations and Strongly Correlated Systems, Volume 76, the latest release in the Advances in Quantum Chemistry series presents work and reviews of current work in quantum chemistry (molecules), but also includes scattering from atoms and solid state work of interest in physics. Topics covered in this... more...

  • High-Energy-Density Physicsby R Paul Drake

    Springer International Publishing 2018; US$ 106.40

    The raw numbers of high-energy-density physics are amazing: shock waves at hundreds of km/s (approaching a million km per hour), temperatures of millions of degrees, and pressures that exceed 100 million atmospheres. This title surveys the production of high-energy-density conditions, the fundamental plasma and hydrodynamic models that can describe... more...

  • Digestible Quantum Field Theoryby Andrei Smilga

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 52.58

    This book gives an intermediate level treatment of quantum field theory, appropriate to a reader with a first degree in physics and a working knowledge of special relativity and quantum mechanics. It aims to give the reader some understanding of what QFT is all about, without delving deep into actual calculations of Feynman diagrams or similar. The... more...

  • Search for New Phenomena in Dijet Angular Distributions at √s = 8 and 13 TeVby Lene Kristian Bryngemark

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 106.40

    This thesis describes the use of the angular distributions of the most energetic dijets in data recorded by the ATLAS experiment, at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the goal of which is to search for phenomena beyond what the current theory of Particle Physics (the Standard Model) can describe. It also describes the deployment of the method used... more...

  • Introductory Quantum Mechanicsby Paul R. Berman

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 69.70

    This book presents a basic introduction to quantum mechanics. Depending on the choice of topics, it can be used for a one-semester or two-semester course. An attempt has been made to anticipate the conceptual problems students encounter when they first study quantum mechanics. Wherever possible, examples are given to illustrate the underlying physics... more...

  • On the Direct Detection of 229m Thby Lars Von der Wense

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 106.40

    This thesis describes the first detection of a nuclear transition that had been sought for 40 years, and marks the essential first step toward developing nuclear clocks. Atomic clocks are currently the most reliable timekeepers. Still, they could potentially be outperformed by nuclear clocks, based on a nuclear transition instead of the atomic... more...

  • The Nature of Lightby Chandra Roychoudhuri; A.F. Kracklauer; Kathy Creath

    CRC Press 2017; US$ 54.95

    Focusing on the unresolved debate between Newton and Huygens from 300 years ago, The Nature of Light: What is a Photon? discusses the reality behind enigmatic photons. It explores the fundamental issues pertaining to light that still exist today. Gathering contributions from globally recognized specialists in electrodynamics and quantum optics,... more...

  • Food Irradiation Technologiesby Isabel C F R Ferreira; Amilcar L Antonio; Sandra Cabo Verde

    Royal Society of Chemistry 2017; US$ 237.00

    This comprehensive book is a useful reference for food technologists, analytical chemists and food processing professionals, covering all aspects of gamma and electron beam irradiation for the preservation of food. more...
