Jet Quenching in Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions at the by Aaron Angerami

By Aaron Angerami

This thesis offers the 1st measurements of jets in relativistic heavy ion collisions as stated by means of the ATLAS Collaboration. those contain the 1st direct commentary of jet quenching in the course of the statement of a centrality-dependent dijet asymmetry. additionally, a sequence of jet suppression measurements are offered, which offer quantitative constraints on theoretical types of jet quenching. those effects stick with an in depth advent to heavy ion physics with emphasis at the phenomenon of jet quenching and a accomplished description of the ATLAS detector and its functions with reference to appearing those measurements.

Constructing Reality

Questions of the basic nature of topic proceed to encourage and interact our mind's eye. even though, the fascinating new techniques of strings, supersymmetry and unique subject construct on principles which are renowned to physicists yet mysterious and confusing to humans open air of those examine fields. overlaying key conceptual advancements from the final century, this ebook presents a heritage to the daring principles and demanding situations confronted by way of physicists this day.

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

This three-volume sequence offers the tips, types and techniques necessary to realizing plasma dynamics and self-organization for researchers and graduate scholars in plasma physics, managed fusion and similar 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 offers an summary of the physics of radiation detection and its functions. It covers the origins and houses of other varieties of ionizing radiation, their detection and dimension, and the approaches used to guard humans and the surroundings from their probably 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 background that have been occasionally hair-brained, usually dicy, and consistently attention-grabbing. even if you're a scientist or a poet, pro-nuclear strength or staunch opponent, conspiracy theorist or pragmatist, James Mahaffey's books have served to open up the area of nuclear technological know-how like by no means earlier than.
