A Solid Compendium of Advanced Diagnostic and Simulation Tools Exploring the most exciting and topical areas in this field, Laser-Plasma Interactions focuses on the interaction of intense laser radiation with plasma. After discussing the basic theory of the interaction of intense electromagnetic...

High-Pressure Physics

High-Pressure Physics

John Loveday
October 12, 2016

High-pressure science has undergone a revolution in the last 15 years. The development of intense new x-ray and neutron sources, improved detectors, new instrumentation, greatly increased computation power, and advanced computational algorithms have enabled researchers to determine the behavior of...

LHC Physics

LHC Physics

T. Binoth, C. Buttar, P. J. Clark, E.W.N. Glover
April 25, 2012

Exploring the phenomenology of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, LHC Physics focuses on the first years of data collected at the LHC as well as the experimental and theoretical tools involved. It discusses a broad spectrum of experimental and theoretical activity in particle physics, from...

Extra-Solar Planets: The Detection, Formation, Evolution and Dynamics of Planetary Systems

Extra-Solar Planets: The Detection, Formation, Evolution and Dynamics of Planetary Systems

Bonnie Steves, Martin Hendry, Andrew C. Cameron
December 07, 2010

Since the discovery of the first exoplanet orbiting a main sequence star in 1995, nearly 500 planets have been detected, with this number expected to increase dramatically as new ground-based planetary searches begin to report their results. Emerging techniques offer the tantalizing possibility of...

Neutrinos in Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology

Neutrinos in Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology

F.J.P. Soler, Colin D. Froggatt, Franz Muheim
October 29, 2008

Up to date and comprehensive in its coverage, Neutrinos in Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology reviews the whole landscape of neutrino physics, from state-of-the-art experiments to the latest phenomenological and theoretical developments to future advances. With contributions from...

Hadron Physics

Hadron Physics

I.J. Douglas MacGregor, Ralf Kaiser
July 07, 2006

Straddling the traditional disciplines of nuclear and particle physics, hadron physics is a vital and extremely active research area, as evidenced by a 2004 Nobel prize and new research facilities, such as that scheduled to open at CERN. Scientifically it is of vital importance in extrapolating our...

Soft Condensed Matter Physics in Molecular and Cell Biology

Soft Condensed Matter Physics in Molecular and Cell Biology

W.C.K. Poon, David Andelman
January 13, 2006

Soft condensed matter physics, which emerged as a distinct branch of physics in the 1990s, studies complex fluids: liquids in which structures with length scale between the molecular and the macroscopic exist. Polymers, liquid crystals, surfactant solutions, and colloids fall into this category....

Large Hadron Collider Phenomenology

Large Hadron Collider Phenomenology

M. Kramer, F.J.P. Soler
September 30, 2004

With the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) under construction and due to come online in 2007, it is appropriate to engage in a focused review on LHC phenomenology. At a time when most of the experimental effort is centered on detector construction and software development, it is vitally important to...

Ultrafast Photonics

Ultrafast Photonics

A. Miller, D.T. Reid, D.M. Finlayson
April 01, 2004

Ultrafast photonics has become an interdisciplinary topic of high international research interest because of the spectacular development of compact and efficient lasers producing optical pulses with durations in the femtosecond time domain. Present day long-haul telecommunications systems are...

Heavy Flavour Physics Theory and Experimental Results in Heavy Quark Physics

Heavy Flavour Physics Theory and Experimental Results in Heavy Quark Physics

C.T.H Davies, S.M Playfer
June 26, 2002

B-factories at SLAC and KEK started producing high quality results in 2001, while preparations for B physics at the LHC continue. Heavy Flavour Physics: Theory and Experimental Results in Heavy Quark Physics provides an introduction to and overview of recent developments in theory and experiments...

The Restless Universe Applications of Gravitational N-Body Dynamics to Planetary Stellar and Galactic Systems
