Описание: In this absorbing commentary on the discovery of the atom’s constituents, Steven Weinberg accomplishes a brilliant fusion of history and science. This is in effect two books, cleverly interwoven. One is an account of a sequence of key events in the physics of the twentieth century, events that led to the discoveries of the electron, proton and neutron. The other is an introduction to those fundamentals of classical physics that played crucial roles in these discoveries. Physical concepts are introduced where needed to understand the historical story, and each new concept builds on physics already explained. Throughout the book, connections are shown between the historic discoveries of subatomic particles and work today at the frontiers of physics. A final chapter describes the discoveries of new elementary particles up to the present day.

Описание: Professor Murray Gell-Mann is one of the most influential and brilliant scientists of the twentieth century. His work on symmetries, including the invention of the 'quark', in the 1950s and early 1960s has provided a foundation for much of modern particle physics and was recognised by the award of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1969. This book is a collection of research articles especially written by eminent scientists to celebrate Gell-Mann’s 60th birthday, in September 1989. The main body of contributions are concerned with theoretical particle physics and its applications to cosmology.
Описание: This book contains the proceedings of the Tenth International Symposium on Particles, Strings and Cosmology. About 100 contributions, both theoretical and
experimental, presented the latest results in a broad range of topics in astrophysics and cosmology, particle physics and string theory. Topics discussed include reviews of the current
status of dark matter; updated experimental results on terrestrial, solar and astrophysical neutrinos; ongoing progress at Fermilab, CERN and underground detectors; electroweak
physics; CP, CPT and Lorentz invariance violation; SUSY phenomenology; and string theory, string phenomenology and extra dimensions.
A companion volume contains
about twenty-five talks presented in the Pran Nath Fest held during the symposium to honor Pran Nath on the occasion of his 65th birthday. These talks, presented by renowned
theoretical physicists from Dick Ar
owitt to Bruno Zumino, cover the range of topics on which Pran Nath has worked during his distinguished career, from supergravity and string theory to CP violation and dark matter in
the universe. Important topics discussed in the Fest include, review of precision neutrino results, possible new physics from the muon g-2 results from Brookhaven, evidence for
neutrinoless double beta decay, collider searches for supersymmetry, string theory and unification, gravitational mediation of SUSY breaking in superstring theory, extra-galactic sources
of high energy neutrinos, and phenomenology using lattice QCD.

Описание: The problem of handling anisotropic particles of arbitrary shape is replaced in this text with the problem of considering aggregates of spherical particles. The book covers a range of applications, from scattering properties of water droplets containing pollutants to modeling cosmic dust grains.
Описание: Elementary particle physics is an indispensable part in each physics curriculum world-wide. A sound understanding already for undergraduates is vital to prepare the grounds for fields such as high energy physics and nuclear physics. Professor David Griffiths has ample experience with teaching and writing of student texts. With his "Introduction to Elementary Particle Physics" he has written a highly successful classic which achieves the understanding with a combination of a lively style and the necessary rigor. His text has entered the literature recommendations list of numerous lectures. As the stock has been sold out, a new printrun became necessary to serve the needs. This new edition provides an additional solutions manual to complement th abundance of problems in the original text.
Описание: The biggest news in science today is the Large Hadron Collider and the anticipation of finally discovering the Higgs boson particle. But what is the Higgs boson and why is it often referred to as the God Particle? Other than the Higgs, why is the LHC so important? Understanding the science behind the LHC can be difficult for anyone without an advanced degree in particle physics, but you dont need to go back to school to understand why this branch of science is enjoying its heyday and why its important to understand it. Paul Halpern provides readers with the tools they need to understand what the LHC is and what it hopes to discover. The LHC aims to shed light on how the universe began by replicating conditions just after the Big Bang. In the same vein, to understand the significance of the LHCs discoveries, Collider takes a fascinating look back to see where collider technology has taken us, what the colliders over the last hundred years have discovered, and what the LHC and the colliders beyond could possibly reveal. Readers will learn about the Standard Model, the four forces (weak and strong force, gravity, and electromagnetism), the myriad array of particles weve discovered, why we might be on the verge of disproving string theory, and how the LHC could help us discover dark matter, dark energy, strange matter, and portals to higher dimensions.
Описание: This book provides a self-contained and systematic introduction to classical electron theory and its quantization, non-relativistic quantum electrodynamics. The
first half of the book covers the classical theory. It discusses the well-defined Abraham model of extended charges in interaction with the electromagnetic field, and gives a study of the
effective dynamics of charges under the condition that, on the scale given by the size of the charge distribution, they are far apart and the applied potentials vary slowly.
second half covers the quantum theory, leading to a coherent presentation of non-relativistic quantum electrodynamics. Topics discussed include non-perturbative properties of the
basic Hamiltonian, the structure of resonances, the relaxation to the ground state through emission of photons, the non-perturbative derivation of the g-factor of the electron and the
stability of matter.

Описание: This book is on different nonlinear schemes of Free Electron Lasers, Laser Accelerators, and Electron-Positron pair production and covers the theory of interaction of strong and super strong laser fields with charged particles and vacuum. These topics will be in the center of fundamental research in the next decade. The author, who has over 30 years of experience in this field, has developed non-linear theory and new approaches to solve respective relativistic classical and quantum problems. The book will be especially useful for researchers, students and industry practitioners in the fields of Particle and Laser Physics.
Описание: This volume is intended as a systematic introduction to gauge field theory for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in high energy physics. The discussion is restricted to the classical (non-quantum) theory in Minkowski spacetime. Particular attention has been given to conceptual aspects of field theory, accurate definitions of basic physical notions, and thorough analysis of exact solutions to the equations of motion for interacting systems. Two theories covered by the book in great detail are the Maxwell-Lorentz electrodynamics and Yang-Mills-Wong theory.

Описание: Statistical physics has its origins in attempts to describe the thermal properties of matter in terms of its constituent particles, and has played a fundamental role in the development of quantum mechanics. Based on lectures taught by Professor Kardar at MIT, this textbook introduces the central concepts and tools of statistical physics. It contains a chapter on probability and related issues such as the central limit theorem and information theory, and covers interacting particles, with an extensive description of the van der Waals equation and its derivation by mean field approximation. It also contains an integrated set of problems, with solutions to selected problems at the end of the book and a complete set of solutions is available to lecturers on a password protected website at www.cambridge.org/9780521873420. A companion volume, Statistical Physics of Fields, discusses non-mean field aspects of scaling and critical phenomena, through the perspective of renormalization group.
Описание: PASCOS is an interdisciplinary symposium on the interface of of Particle physics, String theory and Cosmology. Over the past two decades these three disciplines have increasingly become closer. Historically there was always a strong overlap between particle physics and cosmology. This connection has become even stronger with the realization that some of the fundamental issues in cosmology such as the presence of dark matter and dark energy may possibly find a resolution only via new theories of particle physics. At the same time string theory has begun to play an increasingly important role in particle physics as a possible framework for building unified models of particle interaction including gravity. In recent years we have seen an increasing overlap between cosmology and string theory and currently the area of string cosmology is one of the most active fields of research. PASCOS 2005 aimed to provide coherent discussions of recent developments on the interface of the three disciplines and also on their interconnections. In particular, superstring aspects in low energy particle theory (SUSY) and cosmological applications (moduli stabilization) are extensively covered in this volume. Topics include dark matter and dark energy, baryogenesis, flavor and CP violation, neutrino physics, supersymmetry and extra dimensions, flux compactification, string model building, as well as brane cosmology.
