  • The Vector Mode in the Second-order Cosmological Perturbation Theoryby Shohei Saga

    Springer Singapore 2018; US$ 106.44

    This thesis sheds valuable new light on the second-order cosmological perturbation theory, extensively discussing it in the context of cosmic microwave background (CMB) fluctuations. It explores the observational consequences of the second-order vector mode, and addresses magnetic field generation and the weak lensing signatures, which are key phenomena... more...

  • The Vatican Observatory, Castel Gandolfo: 80th Anniversary Celebrationby Gabriele S. J. Gionti; Jean-Baptiste S.J. Kikwaya Eluo

    Springer International Publishing 2018; US$ 183.52

    This book presents contributions from an internal symposium organized to celebrate the 80 th anniversary of the Specola Vaticana, or Vatican Observatory, in the Papal Palace of Castel Gandolfo. The aim is to provide an overview of the scientific and cultural work being undertaken at the Observatory today and to describe the outcomes of important... more...

  • Digestible Quantum Field Theoryby Andrei Smilga

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 52.60

    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$ 106.44

    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...

  • Detecting the Stochastic Gravitational-Wave Backgroundby Carlo Nicola Colacino

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2017; US$ 28.00

    The stochastic gravitational-wave background (SGWB) is by far the most difficult source of gravitational radiation detect. At the same time, it is the most interesting and intriguing one. This book describes the initial detection of the SGWB and describes the underlying mathematics behind one of the most amazing discoveries of the 21st century. On... more...

  • Einstieg in die Astroteilchenphysikby Claus Grupen

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2017; US$ 44.21

    Dieses Buch bietet eine ausführliche Darstellung der Astroteilchenphysik und der kosmischen Strahlung mit den dazugehörigen Messmethoden in der Forschung. Nach einer historischen Einleitung werden zunächst die Astroteilchen selbst, deren typische Wechselwirkungen und die relevanten Messtechniken beschrieben. Ein großer Teil des Buches befasst sich... more...

  • Origins of Lifeby Douglas Whittet

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2017; US$ 47.96

    Origins of Life: A Cosmic Perspective presents an overview of the concepts, methods, and theories of astrobiology and origins of life research while presenting a summary of the latest findings. The book provides insight into the environments and processes that gave birth to life on our planet, which naturally informs our assessment of the probability... more...

  • Dynamical Evolution of Galaxiesby Xiaolei Zhang

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 182.00

    This research monograph presents a new dynamical framework for the study of secular dynamical evolution of galaxies. Classical approaches based on Boltzmann’s kinetic equation, as well as on its moment-equation descendants the Euler and Navier-Stokes fluid equations, are inadequate for treating the maintenance and long-term evolution of systems containing... more...

  • Yearbook of Astronomy 2018by Brian Jones; Richard Pearson FRAS

    Pen and Sword 2017; US$ 17.23

    The YEARBOOK OF ASTRONOMY 2018 is a book no stargazer should be without. Recognized by both amateurs and professionals alike as an indispensable guide to the night sky, the Yearbook of Astronomy is one of the longest-running series of books on astronomy and the night sky and one of the only reference books to be fully revised each year. Formerly... more...

  • Our Cosmic Habitatby Martin Rees; Martin Rees

    Princeton University Press 2017; US$ 17.95 US$ 16.33

    Our universe seems strangely ''biophilic,'' or hospitable to life. Is this happenstance, providence, or coincidence? According to cosmologist Martin Rees, the answer depends on the answer to another question, the one posed by Einstein's famous remark: ''What interests me most is whether God could have made the world differently.'' This highly engaging... more...
