High-pT Physics in the Heavy Ion Era (Cambridge Monographs by Jan Rak,Michael J. Tannenbaum

By Jan Rak,Michael J. Tannenbaum

geared toward graduate scholars and researchers within the box of high-energy nuclear physics, this e-book presents an summary of the fundamental strategies of huge transverse momentum particle physics, with a spotlight on pQCD phenomena. It examines high-pT probes of relativistic heavy-ion collisions and should function a instruction manual for these engaged on RHIC and LHC info analyses. beginning with an creation and assessment of the sphere, the authors examine simple observables and experimental thoughts, targeting relativistic particle kinematics, earlier than relocating onto a dialogue in regards to the origins of high-pT physics. the most good points of high-pT physics are put inside of a ancient context and the authors undertake an experimental outlook, highlighting crucial discoveries best as much as the root of contemporary QCD conception. complex tools are defined intimately, making this booklet particularly necessary for novices to the field.

Constructing Reality

Questions of the basic nature of topic proceed to motivate and interact our mind's eye. despite the fact that, the fascinating new recommendations of strings, supersymmetry and unique topic construct on rules which are popular to physicists yet mysterious and confusing to humans outdoors of those examine fields. masking key conceptual advancements from the final century, this ebook offers a historical past to the daring rules and demanding situations confronted through physicists at the present time.

Modern Plasma Physics: Volume 1, Physical Kinetics of Turbulent Plasmas

This three-volume sequence offers the tips, types and ways necessary to realizing plasma dynamics and self-organization for researchers and graduate scholars in plasma physics, managed fusion and comparable fields similar to plasma astrophysics. quantity I develops the actual kinetics of plasma turbulence via a spotlight on quasi-particle versions and dynamics.

Physics and Engineering of Radiation Detection

Physics and Engineering of Radiation Detection provides an summary of the physics of radiation detection and its functions. It covers the origins and homes of other varieties of ionizing radiation, their detection and size, and the strategies used to guard humans and the surroundings from their most likely damaging results.

Atomic Adventures: Secret Islands, Forgotten N-Rays, and Isotopic Murder: A Journey into the Wild World of Nuclear Science

The most recent investigation from acclaimed nuclear engineer and writer James Mahaffey finds forgotten nuclear endeavors all through heritage that have been occasionally hair-brained, frequently dicy, and consistently attention-grabbing. even if you're a scientist or a poet, pro-nuclear power or staunch opponent, conspiracy theorist or pragmatist, James Mahaffey's books have served to open up the area of nuclear technology like by no means prior to.
