By colliding heavy ions at nearly the speed of light, scientists are exploring both our physical world and conditions at the beginning of the universe. With applications in nuclear physics, particle physics,...

Experts agree, though it is already important, nuclear power will soon be critical to the maintenance of contemporary society. With the heightened importance of nuclear energy comes a heightened threat of terrorism....

This second volume of Elementary Particle Physics, "Foundations of the Standard Model", concentrates on the main aspects of the Standard Model by addressing developments from its establishments to recent progress...

Describing advanced detectors and their visualization and investigation techniques, this book presents the major applications in nuclear and high-energy physics, astrophysics, medicine and radiation measurements....

Bridging the Gaps: An Anthology on Nuclear Cold Fusion is written in scientific language that can be understood by first year college physics and engineering students, environmentalists and ecologists on the...

What lies within CERN's entrails? What is the path followed by the particles that are accelerated before they collide? What does the ATLAS detector look like? Does research at CERN find applications in everyday...

Some twenty years ago the author published a book entitled The Physics of Particle Detectors. Much has evolved since that time, not in the basic physics, but in the complexity, number and versatility of the...

**A c****omprehensive textbook on the foundational principles of plasmas, including material on advanced topics and related disciplines such as optics, fluid dynamics, and astrophysics**

*Foundations of Plasma...*

Concerns around climate change and the drive to net-zero carbon energy have led to a nuclear renaissance in many countries and, since the publication of the first edition of this book, we have seen an increase...

Throughout the past five decades, research and development in the world of nuclear fusion has been led by large publicly funded national laboratories. Currently, fusion energy technology development is being...

Radiation detection is key to experimental nuclear physics as well as underpinning a wide range of applications in nuclear decommissioning, homeland security and medical imaging. This book presents the state-of-the-art...

Volume 2 of this three-part series presents the quantization of classical field theory using the path integral formalism. For students who wish to learn about relativistic quantum field theory applied to particle...

Vortices comprising swirling motion of matter are observable in classical systems at all scales, ranging from atomic size to that of galaxies. In quantum mechanical systems, such vortices are robust entities...

A deeper understanding of neutrinos, with the goal to reveal their nature and exact role within particle physics, is at the frontier of current research. This book reviews the field in a concise fashion and...

History of Particle Theory fills an important gap existing in the literature by discussing the impressive progress in understanding the elementary particles out of which all everyday objects are made. Most of...

The first volume of *Quantum Mechanics for Nuclear Structure* introduced the reader to the basic elements that underpin the one-body formulation of quantum mechanics. *Volume two* follows on from its predecessor...

Based on a two-semester course held at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, this book provides an adequate resource for the lecturer and the student. The contents are primarily aimed at graduate students who...

Volume 3 of this three-part series presents more advanced topics and applications of relativistic quantum field theory. The application of quantum chromodynamics to high-energy particle scattering is discussed...

Volume 1 of this three-part series introduces the fundamental concepts of quantum field theory using the formalism of canonical quantization. This volume is intended for use as a text for an introductory quantum...
