  • The Problem of Timeby Edward Anderson

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 131.39

    This book is a treatise on time and on background independence in physics. It first considers how time is conceived of in each accepted paradigm of physics: Newtonian, special relativity, quantum mechanics (QM) and general relativity (GR).  Substantial differences are moreover uncovered between what is meant by time in QM and in GR. These differences... more...

  • First Measurement of Neutrino and Antineutrino Oscillation at T2Kby Kirsty Elizabeth Duffy

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 103.92

    This thesis reports the measurement of muon neutrino and antineutrino disappearance and electron neutrino and antineutrino appearance in a muon neutrino and antineutrino beam using the T2K experiment. It describes a result in neutrino physics that is a pioneering indication of charge-parity (CP) violation in neutrino oscillation; the first to be obtained... more...

  • Welcome to the Universeby Neil deGrasse Tyson; Michael A. Strauss; J. Richard Gott

    Princeton University Press 2017; US$ 35.00 US$ 31.85

    Here is the essential companion to Welcome to the Universe , a New York Times bestseller that was inspired by the enormously popular introductory astronomy course for non science majors that Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michael A. Strauss, and J. Richard Gott taught together at Princeton. This problem book features more than one hundred problems and exercises... more...

  • Before Time Beganby Helmut Satz

    OUP Oxford 2017; US$ 13.99

    What is the origin of the universe? What was there before the universe appeared? We are presently witnessing a second Copernican revolution: neither our Earth and Sun nor our galaxy nor even our universe is the end of all things. This account of recent developments in modern cosmology introduces how the Big Bang took place and what preceded it. more...

  • The Earth Gazersby Christopher Potter

    Head of Zeus 2017; US$ 16.99

    The fascinating story of how we first came to see the earth from space. more...

  • Hubbleby Giles Sparrow

    Quercus 2017; US$ 37.99

    For 20 years the Hubble Space Telescope has been hurtling around our planet at 17,500 mph sending spectacularly sharp images of the universe back to Earth. Hubble is a visual celebration of this large and versatile telescope's astonishing scientific and technical achievements. This fully revised and updated edition of Hubble: Window on... more...

  • Asteroseismic Data Analysisby Sarbani Basu; William J. Chaplin

    Princeton University Press 2017; US$ 75.00 US$ 68.25

    Studies of stars and stellar populations, and the discovery and characterization of exoplanets, are being revolutionized by new satellite and telescope observations of unprecedented quality and scope. Some of the most significant advances have been in the field of asteroseismology, the study of stars by observation of their oscillations. Asteroseismic... more...

  • Higgs Properties at the LHCby Jason Tsz Shing Yue

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 83.61

    This thesis studies the properties of the Higgs particle, discovered at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012, in order to elucidate its role in electroweak symmetry breaking and cosmological phase transition in the early universe. It shows that a generic spin-2 Higgs impostor is excluded by the precision measurements of electroweak observables and... more...

  • Supernova Explosionsby David Branch; J. Craig Wheeler

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2017; US$ 107.50

    Targeting advanced students of astronomy and physics, as well as astronomers and physicists contemplating research on supernovae or related fields, David Branch and J. Craig Wheeler offer a modern account of the nature, causes and consequences of supernovae, as well as of issues that remain to be resolved. Owing especially to (1) the appearance of... more...

  • Effective Field Theories for Heavy Majorana Neutrinos in a Thermal Bathby Simone Biondini

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 103.92

    In this thesis we discuss the construction of an effective field theory (EFT) for non-relativistic Majorana fermions, show how to use it to calculate observables in a thermal medium, and derive the effects of these thermal particles on the CP asymmetry.  The methods described in this thesis allow a systematic and effective description of the non-relativistic... more...
